S&H's celebrity female dinner party!

So a while back on the bus to work for no other reason than boredom I assume, I suddenly started think about five women I would have at a celebrity dinner party. I thought the idea would fleet across my brain but then I started to really think about it. Which women would I really want to sit down and talk and share a meal with? Who would have interesting stories to share? Who would make the atmosphere light and fun? Who would I like to see interact with each other? This last question gave me some great amusement when I began to imagine people like Miley Cyrus breaking bread with Queen Elizabeth...Anyway, I gave it some thought (almost missing my bus stop in the process!) and this is my list of five women I would like to have over for a dinner party for no other reasons other than they interest greatly me or they make me laugh! I think those are two good criteria for perfect dinner guests, no?

1// JK Rowling 

This is an obvious one, I could happily just sit with her on her own for hours and hours and ask her question after question. I'd love to hear all about her life, how it's changed now, how she actually sat down and wrote each Harry Potter (as in very detailed, I'm so interested!) what inspired and inspires her and what she wants for her future having already achieved so much. She's had some hard times too, she was pretty much bankrupt when she started with Harry and it's well know that dementors are her representation of depression so I'd be so interested to hear about how she dealt with those periods in her life although I realise this is not typical dinner party chatter!!

2// Victoria Beckham

As I've said before, I'm not a fashion expert by any means, I'm not even interested save the beautiful dresses that come around in awards season on the red carpet. However, Victoria Beckham intrigues me greatly and I'd love to meet her. She's one of these people that everyone has their own preconceived ideas and misconceptions about and I want to see what she's like for myself. She's a very inspiring woman, raising four children, keeping a strong marriage together and completely turning her image around to create a brand and a business that she is truly proud of and is achieving the acclaim of others high up in that industry. I think all of this makes her one powerful, awesome woman worthy of a dinner invite, don't you? I want to have a nice girly chats with her over some drinks and hear about how she juggles everything and how she gets the strength and determination to work as hard as she does whilst keeping all of the other plates in her life spinning! If we happen to talk about David (and look at pictures) then that's more than okay too...

3// Ellen DeGeneres

I basically just love her. She seems to be one of those people that just brings light and sparkle wherever she is. She's so funny and real and interesting, she is prime dinner party material. Especially if the tone gets a bit heavy as I fear it would with me interrogating JK Rowling, she is the perfect person to lift it and make everyone laugh and feel at ease! She's also met so many celebrities herself I'd love to her all of her anecdotes, as I bet she has thousands!

4// Kate Middleton 

Again, someone I'm really, really intrigued to meet. She is a classy and inspiring woman. I'd love to have her over and see what she's like and pick her brain. I just want to talk to her and get a feel for what she's like and what her life entails. I have such simple questions like: is everyday scheduled for her? What does she eat? How does she buy clothes? Does someone have to approve her outfits?! The list goes on and on...Obviously she'd be sworn to secrecy about a lot of things but I'm a big royalist and I'd love to be able to meet with her and give her a nice evening and a bit of a break from her royal duties which I can imagine get very tiring! If we happen to swap hair care tips and routines that would be more than fine by me, I need to know how she's keeps her hair so luscious! 

5// Jennifer Lawrence 

Do I need to explain this? She's fun, down to earth and she's done SO much already, she'd be such an interesting guest to have. I just feel like we'd get on and have a laugh! There would never be an awkward silence around the dinner table with her around even if she ends up putting her foot in it sometimes which I imagine would happen! I would love to see her and VB have a chat. I think they'd actually hit it off! I'd love to her her stories about filming The Hunger Games and her general red carpet experiences. She's one of the few Hollywood stars I think who would just give it all to you straight and really be honest and open up.

So there they are, my five guests. I could have easily had more and there were people like Oprah Winfrey, Angelina Jolie and Mindy Kaling who I also thought of but these were there five I settled on. Five very diverse and strong women in their own way, living their own lives in very different ways. I think this would be a wonderful night don't you? 

Just not a bloody clue what I'd cook for them.....

Who would you have over? Any of the same people as me? I was thinking if doing a male dinner party list but I have a feeling the reasoning behind my choices would end up being much more....superficial. #sorrynotsorry

Chat soon!

Small, happy and the Christmas tag!

1. What is your favourite Christmas movie?
I love anything festive themed, but my two favourites are The Holiday and Love, Actually.  These movies combine Jude Law, Colin Firth and Hugh Grant for one and are also romantic, funny and feel like a warm hug every time I watch them.  Jude Law's Mr Napkin Head cracks me up to no end.  If you don't know what I'm talking about then you seriously need to watch this film!

2. Do you open your presents on Christmas Eve or Christmas morning?
Christmas morning!  Although to be fair we spread it throughout the whole day because I open mine with my mum and sister and then we head over to Dad and my grandma's to do theirs and then I see boyfriend late afternoon and we open each other's.  It's a wonderful way to spread the joy of Christmas throughout the day!

3. Do you have a favourite Christmas memory?
That's a hard one, I always have fond Christmas memories, but last year spending Christmas morning watching Disney movies with my sister stands out as one of those moments where I just stopped and thought, "yep, this is perfect."

4. Favourite festive food?
Roast parsnips, absolute fave.

5. Favourite Christmas gift?
Again, nothing specific, I do enjoy getting money and vouchers (boring, I know) because I love going on shopping sprees as I never treat myself!

6. Favourite Christmas scent?
Cinnamon, heaven on Earth, although to be fair I'll have cinnamon candles going all year round!

7. Do you have any Christmas Eve traditions?
Usually I'll cuddle up in bed with my sis and we'll watch something Christmassy, last year it was all the Vicar of Dibley Christmas specials.  The one where she goes to all the dinners is a classic!

8. What tops your tree?
An angel at home, but in mine and the boyfriend's new place I'm hoping to get a nice, huge, in your face star.  No, I'm not kidding, I love all things twinkly!

9. As a kid, what was one (crazy, wild, extravagent) gift you always asked for but never received?
A pet!  I wanted to get a little spaniel in a box like in Lady and the tramp!  To be fair I'm glad I didn't get it, but I always, always asked for some kind of animal!  Now, it's a kitten...

10. What's the best part about Christmas for you? 
Being with family and just having some down time.  Also being able to share moments like seeing someone open a present and love it or just enjoying the festive tv without the guilt of having anything else to do that day.  Mostly, it's just the feel that everything and everyone has over Christmas, a little sparkle!

Anyone else done the Christmas tag?  I'd love to read your answers!  Also I must say thank you to the lovely Victoria over at Lily Loves Lola and Milk Bubble Tea as I borrowed this from them!


Small, happy and believing in fairies and magic...THE DISNEY TAG

1. Favourite Disney Film?
Ugh, well this is too hard, for an all rounder favourite I feel like I have to say Aladdin however Little Mermaid, Tangled, Frozen, Lion King are all up there too!

2. Favourite Disney Character?
Trying to stick with the original classics, Daisy Duck is my fave.  She's so glam and she rocks a bow.  In terms of the movies, I love the Genie, a lot.

3. Favourite Disney Princess?
Jasmine, 100%, easy question.  She is beyond gorgeous, has a strong mind, pretty amazing hair (although what princess doesn't?) but to top it all off her palace is pretty perfect and she has Aladdin and a PET TIGER.  I feel like the last reason tops it all.

4. Rather be Aurora or Cinderella?
I would definitely rather be Aurora.  Who wouldn't want three beautiful fairies looking after them?  Also I love me a bit of Prince Phillip!

5. Rather be Hercules or Tarzan?
I'd rather be Hercules, because hello?  He's a Greek god!  I love anything to do with Greek mythology so definitely a Hercules fan.

6. Rather be Lizzie McGuire or Raven Baxter?
Lizzie McGuire!  I related to her so much growing up (the episode where she gets her first bra?  Totally was my life!)  but I want Raven Baxter as my BFF because she was just too cool and she had her head screwed on right so she'd give good advice too.

7. Favourite Disney song?
Pretty much the whole Lion King soundtrack.

8. Which Disney character would be your best friend?
I'd love to have Flynn Rider ;)  just friends, honest.

9. Which Disney character would be your pet?
I want Rajah please, a mini Raja, I love tiger cubs, so cute.

10. Have you ever been to Disneyland?
 I have been lucky enough to go to Disneyland Florida, Paris and Hong Kong.  The next dream?  Disney Tokyo! 

I could talk and talk about Disney all day, and read it about it too having said that so if you've done this tag please comment so I can read!
