Steph’s 11 Questions

If you won £10,000 tomorrow what would you do?

I would put it towards buying a house, I can see 2017 being a fresh year for me and the partner. I would love to have our own home.

Who are your 5 dream dinner party guests?

Daniel Ricciardo, Kimi Raikkonen, Mark Webber, Valtteri Bottas and Felipe Massa, some amazing Formula 1 drivers. I recon it would be a good old laugh with them all.

What is your favourite childhood memory?

My favourite childhood memory would be visiting my grandparents for Christmas and opening all my presents. Christmas was more magical and special when I was younger.

Who is your style icon?

I’m not a stylish person and there’s no one I look towards for inspiration.

If you could start a business what would it be?

I’m not a business person, I don’t have my own ideas that I want to make a reality. I’m not creative with anything! I wish I was though.

If you had to sing a karaoke song what would it be?

A classic like Livin’ on a Prayer or Bohemian Rhapsody, songs you can sing your heart out.

If you could be a TV or Movie character who would you be?

I would love to be a villain like Harley Quinn or Poison Ivy, how cool would that be!

If you go to Starbucks what would you order?

Oh my! Everything! I love everything in Starbucks, I would order a regular caramel latte.

Do you have a middle name? Do you know why you were given it? If you don’t what would you chose your middle name to be?

I’m lucky as I’ve got two middle names, Caroline and Anne. Caroline was my mum’s Great Grandmother’s name and Anne is my nan’s name on my dad’s side of the family. I’ve got two because I’m the eldest and mum wanted one from each side of the family.

What was your favourite subject at school?

My favourite subject was science, it was the only thing I was good at. I used to love doing experiments.

Do/Did you ever collect anything?

I collect items for my memory box? Does that count? If I go somewhere I collect little things as souvenirs. Along with keeping tickets, just to remind me in the future what I did.

I nominate;

  1. I love these sort of blog posts! I did a tagged blog post too, and actually probably one of my better posts. Its cool to see you’re so involved in the silverstone thing – my boyfriend loves the F1 and I bought him tickets to go and see it in July this year!

    I’d probably sing something similar as my karaoke song as well. Although there may be some cringey girl band songs which might make it into there ha!
