Laurens questions:

1. What is your favourite shop (clothes, shoes, make-up and gifty bits)?
Olivia: This is so hard, i have a number of favourite clothing shops such as, Topshop, River island, Urban outfitters, ASOS, American Appeal. They are all so expensive but they have to be my favourite, i can't choose one. :-(. For make-up and gifts it has to be the good old Boots or superdrug 
Sophie: Ooh, it's gotta be Urban Outfitters and Topshop, although I can hardly afford anything! I don't wear much make-up and I'm not really interested in it, but Boots or Superdrug for the necessities. And Boots have Soap and Glory, so that's a huge benefit!

2. What is your favourite perfume/scent?
Olivia: This is easy, Daisy by Marc Jacobs for perfume and scent but I love the Soap and Glory body spray. 
Sophie: Again, I'm not really fussed. However, my Dad bought me Jimmy Choo a while ago and I love that. I love the Soap and Glory body spray too.

3. Would you like to go to university? If so what would you like to study?

Olivia: At the moment i'm not entirely sure, I want to see how college goes. If I was to go there I would either study drama/ acting or Graphics. However I might choose to do to an acting academy instead, I just don't know. 
Sophie: I'm not really sure if university is for me to be honest. I have no idea what I'd like to study either.

4. What is your dream job?

Olivia: This is hard as I just want to be happy with whatever I do. It would have to be a graphics designer or journalist. My cousin is a journalist and she has inspired me so much, that anything is possible. Even though I would love to be an actress, it's just so hard to get into. 
Sophie: My dream would be to act. But that's just a dream I suppose. Or writing for Company Magazine would be pretty amazing. 

5. If you could travel anywhere in the world where would you go and what would you do?
Olivia: L.A or Australia. I would just have the time of my life. I would stay at the nicest place and go to the beach ever day and visit around as much as I could. I would just go wild and feel so free, I can't wait to hopefullt for fill this dream some day.
Sophie: Definitely America, but also Australia. My parents met whilst travelling in Australia and they always say it was the most amazing adventure. I'd imitate the Australian and American accents whilst having the time of my life!
6. Why did you start a blog?
Olivia: Well me and Sophie were talking one day about blogs and thought how cool it would be to run one ourselves. Ta dah, magically we decided to create one, it's been perfect every since. It is also a great place to begin I think, for example Zoella, I mean look at her now, she's living her dream.
Sophie: I think we were in the cinema waiting for The Perks Of Being A Wallflower to begin when we randomly started discussing creating a blog together. I've always loved to write. And I've read blogs ever since I was 12, so I just wanted to have a go at writing one myself.
7. Would you ever make YouTube videos?
Olivia: Yes! I would absolutely love to. I don't want to start all of that yet as i am more focused on my education at the moment but later on in life I am hoping to, just imagine being part of the YouTube community and getting paid to make videos you love and spending time with the most amazing people. 
Sophie: Yeah, I think it would be amazing. I'm not sure what I'd film, but I think it would be a fantastic experience!

8. What is your favourite film?

Olivia: This is literally impossible. My all time favourite has to be Mean Girls, I mean it's just perfect. However my favourite movie at the moment is friends with benefits, it's honestly the best. Love you Mila, haha.
Sophie: I can't pick one! I love 'We Bought A Zoo' because of the stunning cinematography and the wonderful story line  but then again I love Tangled, This Means War, Crazy, Stupid, Love and the whole Bourne series (although, the latest Bourne film was pretty disappointing  I mean you can't make a successful Bourne film without Matt Damon!)
9. Who is your favourite singer/band?
Olivia: My favourite singer is Frank Hamilton, he's just amazing, all of his songs are so relatable. I then love The Weekend, I love their music. Two door cinema club have to be my favourite band though. I love so many more singers and bands though, this is only a snippet, hehe.
Sophie: This is so easy for me. Band - Coldplay. If you don't like Coldplay, then I'm sorry there's something wrong with you. Every song is perfect. And singer - Lana Del Rey. She's a lyrical genius. I could listen to her all day. 

10. Is there anything you wish you could change about yourself?

Olivia: Just to be happy about everything. It's easier said then done but I worry too much, it really, really bugs me. To be honest I wouldn't change anything else as no one's perfect and I love everything i have. 
Sophie: My ability to worry about anything and everything.

11. What is your biggest achievement?

Olivia: This is hard, I mean getting A's in school for an exam feels amazing but also getting into a production at a theatre just felt incredible. One of my biggest achievements has to be staying strong for my family, like my nanna and grandad, honestly this was the hardest time and when they did pass I felt like I had achieved so much with them.  
Sophie: I honestly have no idea what my biggest achievement is. I'm sorry, but that's quite personal for me.
