Sam Faiers or Joey Essex - REALLY??!! #GreatBritishHome

Do you remember poring over those 'find your style' quizzes in Just Seventeen and Cosmo?  Fashion, fellas or food, there was a style to be found, and as teens and twenty-somethings we loved 'em!  The inexorable rise of Facebook has also seen a resurgence of the quiz, with people telling me what animal they most resemble, what era they should have been born in and which city they should live in recently.  Yep, we all love a 'know yourself' quiz!

If you would like to find out "What's Your Celebrity Home Style", head over to Victoria Plumb for a fun few minutes, although I can't guarantee how accurate it is...  Apparently my style is most like that of TOWIE favourites Joey Essex and Sam Faiers!!  Now these are not celebs I know well and I have never seen TOWIE, but I have an idea of what their style may be like and my initial thought was that it is rather removed from mine!!  However, the quiz reveals:

"YOUR STYLE IS MOST LIKE JOEY ESSEX OR SAM FAIERS FROM TOWIE

Everything about you screams glamour; you always look photo-ready, whether you are working out, shopping in designer boutiques or snuggled up at home in your designer onesie. You crave home comforts that make a statement - a faux fur blanket, embellished cushions and lots of crushed velvet. You use neutral shades mixed with metallic. Pride of place are family portraits, kitchen gadgets and the keys to your Range Rover."

The epitome of glamour - watch out Sam!
Hmm, if glamour is jeans, baby vomit-covered tops and scragged back hair that hasn't seen a shower in a good week, then yep, that's me!  Hee hee.

But actually home comforts like faux fur and luxe fabrics, ah yes, definitely - and lots of family pics everywhere - check.  Neutral with splashes of colour yes, metallics not so much, and definitely no Range Rover!  But kitchen gadgets yes, I do like a nice gadget.

And then I saw my wish list recommendation:

"WISH LIST: ADD A MODERN TRENDY BATHROOM SUITE LIKE THE PRINCETON FROM VICTORIA PLUMB, AND YOUR BATHROOM BECOMES A PLACE TO SHOW OFF TO YOUR FRIENDS - THE PERFECT PLACE TO TAKE THE OBLIGATORY SELFIE!"



Oh yes, the ultimate bathroom - yep Victoria Plumb, I take it all back, absolutely bang on the money there!

So, I was asked, what does the Great British Home mean to me?  Love, comfort, laughter, fun and family.  Basically, these three little monkeys!


Oh and occasionally, just occasionally, peace and quiet!!  I think that bathroom could be the perfect sanctuary, now I just need a house big enough to accommodate it...

I hope you'll take the quiz too, I'd love to hear your result!

  3. You and me, Towie lookalikes! Not. :) Your girlies look gorgeous! Family fun and laughter, that's what truly matters, not the keys to a fancy car or the latest gadgets (though my guys love the ipads).
