Be My Guest - Becky from Life/Style/Flash

Blogger Fact File:
Name - Becky Colley
Age - 26
Location - London
Blog -
Favourite Colour - Cornflower Blue
Favourite Blog Topic - Fashion!

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

Beauty & The Beast is my favourite too! I always loved the songs. The opening song (the one that plays over the scene with the stained glass windows) still gives me goosebumps! Plus Belle is a brunette so I always thought that made her the best Disney heroine ;) 

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

I discover new favourites all the time but one that I've just gone back to is Clinique's Even Better Foundation. It is quite pricey but I've been trying cheaper alternatives and they just don't compare! Currently at the top of my wishlist is Moroccan Oil. 

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

I would love to have been in London in the 1960s! I love everything about that decade: the fashion; the hair; the models; the attitude; the shops; the cars... It was a revolutionary time and looks like it was so much fun!

* What is your favourite type of clothing and which current trend are you most excited about?
I'm quite a classic dresser but I do like to have fun and experiment, although I know what suits me so I avoid what doesn't! I'm not really a girl who goes for anything pink or remotely frilly so I've surprised myself by falling for SS12's girly, pastel explosion!

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

Wear sunscreen! We all look good with a healthy glow but shades of burnt lobster is unattractive, painful and dangerous.

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

Excellent question! I recently reported from the BAFTAs for Charles Worthington (obviously, an incredible experience!) and at one point was within 3 feet of George Clooney - I don't care how old he is, he's absolutely gorgeous and so charming! I'm swooning just thinking about him! I am a HUGE fan of Adele - who isn't?! - and I love Stephen Fry: they're both so modest, down-to-earth and funny.

* What is your favourite TV show?
I was obsessed with Friends when I was growing up and I'm sure it goes without saying that I love Sex and the City. I actually don't watch much TV (I don't even have mine plugged into an aerial and use it purely for DVDs!) but I never miss Grey's Anatomy or Downton Abbey and I love a good nature documentary.

* You're making your debut on the red carpet - who would you wear? Describe your outfit.

I would wear something classic and feminine, like the Givenchy dress Audrey Hepburn wore for the 1954 Oscar's (when she won Best Actress for Roman Holiday) but in black. I'd team it with sky high patent Louboutin court shoes and minimal jewellery. I loved Michelle William's dress at the BAFTAs this year - she was so brave to wear H&M on the red carpet but she totally wowed everyone and proved you don't have to spend a fortune to look amazing!

* What is your favourite book?

I am an avid reader, I always have been. I have a few favourites but if I had to pick just one I'd say High Fidelity by Nick Hornby. He managed to make the main character, Rob, both despicable and likeable at the same time and the book is touching and hilarious in equal measure. I love the film version starring John Cusack, who is perfectly cast, and I think it says a lot that the film stays true to the book.

* If you could make your own nail polish what colour would it be?
I'd have it a very matte cornflower blue colour.

* You have 60 seconds to describe your blog...GO!
I blog about fashion, lifestyle and my new life in London - I'm a Manchester native really. I write about events and cover press days, and I also talk about travel and things to do in London. I post a lot of photos as photography is a big passion of mine! (There is the odd shot of a critter or two as I'm a bit of an animal obsessive.) 

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

My new favourite blog is Cat's photos are beautiful and I'm admittedly jealous about the gorgeous design and layout of her blog!
