The Beauty Blogger Tag

I figured I’d try something quick and fun for today’s post, so here is my Beauty Blogger Tag πŸ™‚

1. Is your hair naturally curly or straight?

I used to have really tight ringlets, until my mum cut them off because I screamed when she tried to brush them! If I leave it to dry naturally, it’s pretty wavyΒ πŸ™‚

2. What is your natural hair colour?

I’m a natural blonde but my hair started going darker when I was about 7. It’s now pretty dark brown.

3. Do you dye it yourself or go to a salon?

I generally tend to dye it myself but I have had it done in a salon before.

4. How often do you wash your hair?

Mostly everyday because it looks really greasy if I don’t wash it. Sometimes if I can’t be arsed, I’ll leave it for a day before washing it again.

5. Do you wear the same style every day or change it?

I usually wear it up in a ponytail or bun. If I’m going out, I’ll wear it down; straight, wavy or curled!

6. Do you do your own mani/pedi or go to a salon?

I do my own. I used to go to a salon on the Isle of Wight and get gel nails but when I moved to Brighton, I stopped having them done.

7. How often to you change your nail polish?

I mostly forget to wear it!

8. Do you polish your toes in the winter, too or just in the summer?

Sometimes, it depends how bored I am πŸ˜›

9. How long does it take to put on your makeup?

For work? 5 minutes tops. If I’m going out for the day then maybe 15 mins but if I’m doing a full face, sometimes it’ll take about half an hour because I try so hard to get it looking right!

10. What do you do first? Face or eyes?

Eyes, because they usually screw up for me πŸ˜›

11. Do you β€œcollect” makeup or just buy what you need when you need it?

I think I collect it now! I love trying new colours and brands.

12. How often do you wear false eyelashes?

Very rarely because I’m not patient enough lol

13. Do you do a full face of makeup every day?

No, I just do eyebrows and eyeliner.

14. Do you wear makeup when you are home alone (or with family)?

Yep, especially lipstick, then I get more confident wearing bolder colours!

15. Will you leave the house without makeup?

Quite often. Sometimes I can’t be arsed.

16. How many high end products do you have?

Some. Mostly EstΓ©e Lauder.

17. How often do you wash your makeup brushes?

Once a week or so *cough* when I remember *cough*

18. Do you plan your OOTD every night or decide when you are getting dressed?

If I’m going to work, I’ll put out clothes the night before so I don’t have to decide what to wear in the morning when I’m rushing to get ready. At the weekends or on days off, I’ll just wear whatever I fancy.

19. How often do you change your handbag?

About twice a year. I have a darker handbag for autumn/winter and a lighter handbag for spring/summer. I used to buy loads of handbags and change them every few months, but the ones I have now I love!

20. What time do you get up & go to sleep?

I generally go to bed anywhere between 9 and 11 pm. My alarm goes off at 7.40 am for work and on the weekends, I’m usually up by 9!

21. How often & when do you workout?

Erm. Never? That’s really bad, isn’t it? I did go to a pole dancing fitness class last week though! That was really fun, although my poor muscles hate me at the moment. I did love it enough to book back in though πŸ™‚

22. Left-handed or Right-handed?

Left handed. Very, very left-handed!

23. How tall are you?

I’m 5’7. Seems to be a pretty reasonable height πŸ™‚

24. Do you speak a foreign language?

I can just about scrape by in conversational French, you know the kind of thing; “where’s the library?” “when is your birthday?” “how much for this?” All the important things πŸ˜€

25. How many pets do you have?

Just one cat. For now πŸ˜›

26. How often are you on Blogger?

Never, I use WordPress.

27. Do you read the comments posted blogs?

Do you mean do I read the comments people leave on my blog? Then yes, every single one πŸ™‚

28. Do you keep a list of products to try as you see other posts?

Ooooh, no, but that’s a great idea!!

29. How did you come up with your blog name?

J chose it for me πŸ™‚

30. What kind of camera do you use for photographs?

I just use the camera on my phone.

31. How often do you clean your house? (Daily, weekly, other)

Every few days.

32. What is your favourite colour?


33. What is your favourite beauty/fashion magazine?

I’ve never really been into beauty/fashion mags. I prefer the intellectual ones, “Chat”, “Take a Break” or “That’s Life”. It’s my guilty secret πŸ˜›

34. Do you swear?

Probably too much, but I try to think about my surroundings when I do it. I find myself cringing listening to young’uns on the buses effing and jeffing when there are small children about.

35. What are you doing with the rest of your day?

Put away the shopping, potentially make a secret cake for an upcoming blog post, maybe do a DIY facial and flump on the sofa watching shit TV. OH… And try my new Christmas jumper on (J has gone to pick it up from Asda for me, along with the food shopping – We have YULE LOG πŸ˜€
