Hello! I've been tagged in the Shopaholic tag and I know I'm late on the wagon with this one so I am really sorry but I hope you all enjoy reading it and getting to know me that little bit more..
1. Would you consider yourself a shopaholic?
I think all girls are shopaholics, but I honestly think I am quiet good. I don't just go out and spend money because I have money, I am rather good at saving money when needed to do so. I have an amazon wish list and whenever I want something I find it on amazon and put it on there, then when I have some spare money I will go on the wish list and see which item I want more and buy it.
2. How would you classify your style?
I personally don't think I have 'style'. I wear what I think looks good on me and what I feel comfortable wearing. I would never wear something that was 'in fashion' if I didn't feel 100% comfortable wearing it. I am a rock chick at heart though.
3. What store can you not leave without buying at least one thing?
For make up and beauty Boots, I love going in there and trying out their new stuff and sample, and plus at least I can get club card points with my Boots card! For clothing and accessories there is a store in Prescot called All That Glam which do amazing items. They also ship world wide, and are so friendly and I honestly can't rave about them enough! Although I can't go on Amazon without buying a little something either.
4. Where do you find the best deals?
Online, on Amazon. I love Amazon and buy so many things from their from make up and beauty items, to home and garden decor. They have the best deals and are usually cheaper than most stores.
5. What designer are you willing to splurge for?
I'm not really a big designer girl any more if I am honest when it comes to clothing but make up wise I love Chanel.
6. Do you have a "go to" shopping outfit?
I don't have an actually outfit but if I am going shopping I like to wear something that is comfortable, flat shoes are a must and a good sized over-body bag is an essential.
7. What is your guilty pleasure? (Aside from make up)
Socks. It sounds really silly but I love flurry, funky, comfortable socks. I have loads of pairs on them. I like to wear them instead of slippers.
8. What is one staple clothing piece you cannot live without?
My black leather jacket. Phil, my husband, bought me it for Christmas 2014 and I love that it basically goes with any outfit. I think everyone should own a leather jacket if I am honest.
9. What is a trend you hope never goes out of style?
Oohh that is a really tough question. I really like the classic 'fashion school girl' look. I hope that is going to be around for a very long time.
10. What trend did you love that passed way to quickly?
Gypsy skirts and tshirts. I remember this style being out about ten years ago and I loved it. I hope it will come back.
11. Who is your fashion icon?
I love so many people; Cheryl Cole, Kristen Stewart, Fearn Cotton, Jessie J, Katy Perry, P!nk, Emma Watson, Dakota Fanning, Ashlee Simpson, Mary-Kate Olsen, Princess Kate. I think Princess Diana and Marilyn Monroe always looked amazing too.
With love, Alisha Valerie. x
