Here goes the questions….I have included all three sets but feel free not to read if you have things to do!


11 Questions from Hannah Leanne Beauty


  1. What is your most prized possession?

This is a hard one but probably my violin. It isn’t massively valuable but I spent ages finding it and it really suits me. Its basically like finding that Harry Potter wand from Ollivanders wand shop. You just can’t find a replacement that easily! Don’t get me wrong though, if I could afford it a Stradivarius violin would be lovely!


  1. Why did you start blogging?

I started blogging because I was inspired by my internship at Biscuiteers. This exposed me to a world of online blogging and website management. I loved it so I wanted to learn more. I also thought it was a perfect way to document my baking memories and share my passion with everyone.


  1. How long have you been blogging for?

I’ve been blogging since June 2015 so pretty new to it.


  1. What is your favourite film?

This is a hard one. I don’t think I have a specific one that comes to mind although films like The Holiday and The Theory of Everything are so great (I’m aware that these are completely different though)!


  1. How old are you?

27 but I still get asked for my ID 😉


  1. What is your most treasured memory?

This is a hard one because I think your life is based on many memories that are exciting and build you into the person that you are. There are so many memories I smile about including moving to London, graduating from my degree, meeting fantastic people and growing up with a lovely childhood.


  1. Is there something you’ve dreamed of doing for a long time?

Why haven’t you done it?

I have dreamt of being able to buy a house one day but that will have to wait! At the moment I am happy just the way I am and have lots to be grateful for.


  1. What was your last purchase

I think it was a packet of fruit pastilles haha!


  1. Do you have any pets?

No sadly but I do have a dog door stop, penguin slippers and a rabbit that sits on my bed. They are a dream to look after and quite inexpensive!


  1. What is your favourite type of blog to read? (beauty, lifestyle, fashion etc)

Although my blog is mostly cooking I love to read lifestyle and beauty blogs the best! I am really into makeup and beauty products at the moment but they come at a price….so I have to resist.


  1. What is your favourite season?

Summer because it is hot, sunny and everyone is happier! I do like sneaky hot chocolates on a cosy winter evening though.



11 Questions from Planes & Champagne


  1. Tell me about you.

I am passionate about baking and the violin. I love cooking and coming up with new ideas for my bakes! I also teach the violin!


  1. What’s your blog about?

My blog is mostly about food but I may change this to incorporate other subjects one day. Should I?


  1. What do you love about blogging?

I love the freedom and expression you can get out of writing something. I love connecting with bloggers online and being creative with different ideas. When I was little I wanted to be a writer and was always writing short stories. I even drew my own pictures for them!


  1. What is one goal you have for your blog in 2016?

To try and be more creative and blog other content than recipes.


  1. If you could have dinner with anyone who would it be?

Probably my boyfriend!


  1. What is your favourite film?

See above.


  1. Where is the best place that you have ever been and why?

This is really hard! I am not a massive traveller because I am scared of flying (plus I get really bad pains in my head from the air pressure). I think Paris, Vienna and Rome have all been stand outs to me. I do love the South Coast of England too!


  1. If you could change one thing in the world what would it be?

There would be more hours in the day! There is always so much I want to fit in!


  1. What’s your guilty pleasure?

I have a sweet tooth so anything with chocolate in.


  1. Fun fact about you?

I can’t wink with one eye. I’ve tried and it just doesn’t work for me, it just looks like I’m having a squinting fit.


  1. What 3 things would you pack if you were stranded on a dessert island?

If they were things and not people…. I would take my violin, photos, and glasses so I could see (assuming water was drinkable because I drink so much of the stuff).


1o Questions from yummy with no money


  1. If you had to eat one thing for the rest of your life what would it be?

This is hard. It possibly would be cheese….or chocolate. I’m obsessed with both. I guess cheese as it is slightly better for you and less sickly after a while.


  1. What’s your favourite type of cuisine?

I’m not sure haha! I love Italian food but then again French is the ultimate of all cuisines. I love classic French cooking and the pastries and bread – they just do things so well.


  1. What’s your guilty pleasure?

See above.


  1. What’s your dream job?

I think a dream job is something that doesn’t feel like work. I guess my dream job would be combining all my hobbies: violin, baking, blogging, marketing, geeky spreadsheets and being a neat freak! I’m not sure what that would be though…..but if I can tick a few off all is good!


  1. What’s your favourite hobby (apart from blogging!)?

Definitely my violin! I have played since I was little and have experience of teaching it.


  1. Who is your motivation?

My friends and family. My boyfriend has the best saying: “Friends, Family, Food and Drink”.


  1. What three items would you take on a desert island with you?

See above.


  1. If you had to move abroad, where would you choose to live?

Probably Australia because they speak English. Or Paris!


  1. What is your favourite thing about yourself?

I guess I try to treat people how I like to be treated and so I try to be friendly to others.


  1. What will always cheer you up?

Making someone else smile and doing things for others…cheesy hey!
