Desert Island Picks

Imagine it; you're on a lush secluded beach, surrounded by nature. Sounds delightful doesn't it? But what would you do if you actually found yourself on a desert island with nothing but five essentials? I've compiled my list of my five essentials, for fun, that I would want if I was surrounded by seclusion.


I often think a good novel is one of the best forms of entertainment and when you're stuck on a desert island, even better. No power, charging or battery required. Just an open mind and a few days and let's face it, in seclusion you have plenty of time to kill. The best books? The ones you can read again and again and still gain an alternate perspective. And a guilty pleasure never hurts too!


Calling Bear Grylls, or any other survival expert for that matter. I don't really fancy the idea of hunting a wild boar so what better than a survival expert to do the work for you. And they can make a camp fire. Bonus.


Ok, so I would love to roam around the beach looking like Gisele-even if it is sparse of human life. But, the truth is, to achieve those gorgeous, beachy waves I need a little help. And so enter hair serum-smoothes out frizz, enhances curls. Two in one, perfect for a short list of items.


Being deserted must be a tad stressful. Soap and Glory have a solution in this deep cleansing face mask. And great skin is good any time.


I will forever be attached to my mascara. And this is by far my holy grail of mascara. Ok, so fluttery lashes aren't exactly a flare gun but isn't it so nice to feel pretty?


What would be your five (fun) essentials you would have on a desert island?

  3. What a fun post. I love your picks. I must have my lip balm, for sure. And I gotta confess..I'd need as many R.R. Martin books as I could carry.

  4. Oh, this was such a great post. What would be on my reading list..hmm..I guess it wouldn't hurt to have some survival guide with me. I have a feeling I could read Hemlock Grove again.

  11. I would love to try some Soap & Glory products and that Clinique mascara! It's funny, if I were stuck on a desert island I think I'd just give up on the makeup/skin care side of things and just focus on survival LOL

  17. Haha this was a cool post! I actually feel like sometimes I'm on a secluded island because where I live is pretty far removed from the everyday city life that a lot of people are used to. I would bring my dog, a nail polish, a mystery novel, a watercolor kit, and an easy bake oven or something :)
