Beauty Blogger Tag

I absolutely adore these types of tags yet I never get around to doing them. I still really want to do the 'how much is my face worth tag' I will get around to it! However I'll do this one now, I feel really bad because most of my posts at the moment have been personal or tags but I haven't had the time because I was working all weekend and I've got essay's due this week so what I think I'll do is schedule a few posts at weekend for the week after to make it up for it :)

1. Is your hair naturally curly or straight?
Well it's naturally wavy-ish but when it's short like it is now it tends to be straight.

2. What is your natural hair colour?
Very dark brown. Which at the moment you can tell, damn roots!

3. Do you dye it yourself or go to a salon?
I have always dyed my hair myself, however for special occasions e.g. prom and the occasional treat I get it professionally done, which is pretty much bleaching because my mum hates doing it!

4. How often do you wash your hair?
See I feel a little freaky but every single day! I feel as if I have to, but I only condition it maybe once a week.

5. Do you wear the same style every day or change it?
Same style everyday, it's a little too long at the moment to spike it up so I just let it lay naturally with the odd bit of hair wax now and then.

6. Do you do your own mai/pedi or go to a salon?
I've never had my nails done proffessionally before so that's on my to-do list, but even I don't do them myself, my boyfriend does :)

7. How often do you change your nail polish?
I use to wear it pretty much everyday but I no longer can due to work :(

8. Do you polish your toes in the winter, or just in the summer?
All the time! Much more now I can't wear polish on my hands.

9. How long does it take you to put your make up on?
Depending on what type of make up I'm doing it could range from 5 minutes to 20 when I start doing eyeliner/eyeshadow.

10. What do you do first? Face or eyes?
Always my eyes, I tend to smudge make up I've put on to my face and I hate having to redo my face make up, so it's easier this was.

11. Do you "collect" makeup or just buy what you need when you need it?
Yes! I'm really bad for this, I tend to buy make up I don't need that much but will probably use in the future. I do still buy items when I need them but since having a paying job I always tend to pick up a few items on

12. How often do you wear false eyelashes?
Yuck! Never I hate them, I hate the feel of them and the hassle of putting them on. MY eye lashes are quite long anyway so I don't actually need them.

13. Do you do a full face of make up everyday?
Well I don't wear foundation I use powder but kind of yes. I wear powder and mascara everyday but as for eyeliner/eye shadow only on days when I have the tired and aren't too tired.

14. Do you wear makeup when you are home alone (or with family)?
It depends really if anyone is coming round and what we're doing but no. I don't see the point in getting all dolled up for no purpose whatsoever. I wear powder but that's it.

15. Will you leave the house without makeup?
Yeah! I don't see why this is such a big issue, I mean if you're just popping to the shops or walking the dog then it's fine. Unless I'm going out for an actual purpose such as college or seeing my boyfriend then no, make up all the way!

16. How many high end products do you own?
Not many really, I have products from yonks ago such as an Urban Decay palette I got for Christmas which was around £30. I don't really like high end products, I see them as a waste of money. But one I do think are good for their money is S&G but I don't see them quite at the top.

17. How often do you wash your makeup brushes?
Hmm I only genuinely use one make up brush because I need to expand my collection so I just wash it before I use it.

18. Do you plan your OOTD every night or decide when you ate getting dressed?
I do try ever so hard to plan it but then when I wake up the weather or occasion may change. I do sometimes stick to my outfit choice but then there;s other days when I just want to curl up in jeans and a jumper.

19. How often do you change your handbag?
I'm really bad for this, I have my big blue one I like to use for college but depending on my outfit and occasion I do like to change them, they range from small to big, different colors and studded ones. I do have one 'main one' though for every day use.

20. What time do you get up & go to sleep?
I tend to fall asleep when I'm tired which can range from 11:30pm to 1am. In a normal college week I wake up between 7am and 7:30 depending when I have to be in and on weekends I try and stay as late as possible till about 10am.

21. How often & when do you work out?
Never! I'm waiting for my emergency tax to get sorted and my hours every week and then I'm thinking of joining up to the gym so I can work out and swim! It may never happen though.

22. Left handed or right handed?
Right handed :)

23. How tall are you?
I'm so tiny! I'm about 5'2/3

24. Do you speak a foreign language?
I was forced through four years of french at high school so I think I can hold my own in a conversation :)

25. How many pets do you have?
At my mums I have a lovely Westie called Molly. At my dads we have two lovely cats called Suki & Molly. My family is full of pets, mainly dogs.

26. How often are you on Blogger?
Depending on my work load from college and my work schedule I'm normally on for a couple of hours every night and I tend to spent my weekends on it. I'm not on as often as I'd like so I try to scheduled my posts at weekends.

27. Do you read the comments posted on blogs?
Yeah of course, I love finding new blogs to follow and I always read the comments I get and end up checking out their blogs.

28. Do you keep a list of products to try as you see other posts?
All the time! I either google the products and bookmark it on my laptop or keep it in my little while blogging notebook.

29. How did you come up with your blog name?
It's my first and middle name with an extra 'e' on the end. I wanted something that sounded really lovely and personal that some people had and I just couldn't think so I just stuck with my name :)

30. What kind of camera do you use for your photographs?
I tend to use my iPhone a lot because it's always with me but from time to time for OOTD's or shopping haul photographs I use my Fujifilm S1900, I am hoping to save up for a newer, much smaller one.

31. How often do you clean your house?
I live with my mum so she does it, however she is always nagging for me to tidy my room.

32. What is your favorite color?

33. What is your favorite beauty/fashion magazine?
I tend to buy whatever I like the look of. But recently I've been buying Cosmo, Company and Glamour. 

34. Do you swear?
All the time! I have such a bad potty mouth, people are always telling me off for it.

35. What are you doing with the rest of your day?
I'm going to write up a few more posts on here for this week, hopefully see my boyfriend and then head off to work at 4pm for a 4 hours :)

As you all know  love these types of challenges and this one was a biggie. I know I've been doing a lot of these recently but hopefully this week I will be back into the swing of things so expect some outfit and beauty related posts!
