About Rach

(Apologies for this being 2 days late, my week is unbelievable!)
For the first in my revamped questionnaire series I thought I'd actually introduce myself! I didn't do this with the last questionnaire and I think it'll be great for you guys to compare your answers with mine - just like I'll be doing with yours! :)

Introducing...

Blogger Fact File:
Name - Rachael Louise
Age - 21
Location - St Andrews/Blackburn/BVI
Blog - This one! :)
Favourite Colour - Green
Favourite Blog Topic - NOTW

* I named this questionnaire Be My Guest after my favourite Disney movie Beauty and the Beast - what is your favourite Disney movie and why?

I've always had something of an obsession with books, libraries and reading and of course Belle also has a love of books. Beauty and the Beast was always going to be the Disney movie for me. Although I have to add that I love the story line, I always cry when Belle's father gets locked up, and when her horse Phillipe almost gets eaten by wolves, even though I've seen it a million times! I do love a good sing song too - Be our guest, be our guest, put our service to the test, tie a napkin round your neck cherie and we'll provide the rest♪ Also I have a bit of a thing for the Beast.

* What is your favourite make-up/beauty item and what is on your dream wish list?

My favourite is definitely my YSL Touche Eclat. I simply cannot live without it. As long as I've got rid of the dark bits under my eyes in the morning I feel mostly ready to go out and tackle whatever the day has got to offer! I've just had my number one wish list item ticked off by my lovely Tony (which I promise to blog, so excited to share these with you guys!) So I guess next on the list is probably a Chanel nail polish, namely the Peridot one because it's green, it's my birthstone and it looks so beautiful!

* If you could travel back in time, where and when would you go, and why?

Early 1800s. I think the way hair was styled and the clothes they wore were just so stunning. I'd have to be from a pretty well-off family though, so I could trounce around in the rolling acres of beautiful garden, sewing and painting on the lawn. Reading books and playing piano at my leisure. And, of course, the parties, the dancing and the courting! My own real life Mr Darcy. Oh my.

* What is your favourite type of clothing and which current trend are you most excited about?
My fav type would have to be summer dresses, so floaty and pretty. But if I was to go with what I wear the most it'll be my trusty jeans! I am definitely the most excited about the pastels coming in this season, I love the delicate, girly colours.


* What is your best style tip for Spring/Summer?

Keep it light, floaty and don't forget the cardigan for when it gets a bit chilly! Oh and wedge espadrilles, always a winner!

* You've got a dinner date with three famous people, who would you chose to dine with (dead or alive) and why?

Helena Bonham-Carter: I love and adore her and every character she's ever played. Stephen Fry: I'm not sure I have to explain this one, he's a wonderful and fascinating man. I'm sure a conversation with him over the dinner table would be spectacular. Now I'm stuck between Colin Firth (Mr Darcy, need I say more), Johnny Depp (makes an amazing duo with Helena B-C), Zooey Deschanel (I want to be her best friend!), Da Vinci (I'd love to know what he knew that made him so ahead of his time), David Tennant (because he's a bit sexy) and Salvador Dali (I'm a huge fan). Eurgh.

* What is your favourite TV show?
Doctor Who hands down. Closely followed by LOST.


* You're making your debut on the red carpet - who would you wear? Describe your outfit.
I don't know who I'd wear because I know practically nothing about red carpet worthy designers and I don't want to embarras myself. But I think I'd go for something elegant, floor length, not too fussy. Maybe a relatively low neckline but not too much on show. I think I'd like it in a cream sort of colour. No high heels either because I'd fall on my face.


* What is your favourite book?
Hard to choose because there's so many but really I always come back to Pride and Prejudice, good old Jane Austen


* If you could make your own nail polish what colour would it be?
It would be a blue-green with some very fine and some bigger star shaped glitters


* You have 60 seconds to describe your blog...GO!
It's really a lot like me, a bit scattered and random! I write what I love and I love what I write :) A very mad mix of the girly and the nerdy


* Name ONE blog or website that you think people may not have heard of and should check out.

Hello Giggles is run by Zooey Deschanel and her two friends. There's always something fabulous to read!
