The Beauty Blogger Tag

I thought it was time for a tag post, just in case any of you fancy learning a little something extra about me than what I think about all things beauty.

1. Is your hair naturally curly or straight?
Straight and narrow.

2. What is your natural hair colour?
Dark brown, but it does get lighter when I've been in the sun to be a more mousy-brown.

3. Do you dye it yourself or go to a salon?
I've never dyed it, too scared to take the plunge!

4. How often do you wash your hair?
Every other day, I've been trying to not wash it so often but I am definitely struggling!

5. Do you wear the same style every day or change it?
I work full-time in an office so of course my attire is mostly officewear but I usually wear completely different things when it gets to the weekend. I usually tend to stick to a girly smart/casual kind of style.

6. Do you do your own mani/pedi or go to a salon?
I went to a salon once and they ruined my fingernails and filed them down way too much so I always do my own now.

7. How often to you change your nail polish?
Quite regularly, I chip it like all the time. I really need to stop wearing it though as I need to get my nails in a much better condition.

8. Do you polish your toes in the winter, too or just in the summer?
My toes are always painted but I change the colour more often in the summer.

9. How long does it take to put on your makeup?
If I'm going to work it takes me five minutes but it can take up to 45 minutes if I'm taking my time.

10. What do you do first? Face or eyes?
Face, to me it just makes sense to start off on the base.

11. Do you "collect" makeup or just buy what you need when you need it?
I used to collect it and I had a huge collection until recently, now I just buy what I need.

12. How often do you wear false eyelashes?
I never wear them, mine are quite long on their own.

13. Do you do a full face of makeup every day?
No, I do if I'm going to work but it's just the basics really. I sometimes just away with a bit of concealer otherwise.

14. Do you wear makeup when you are home alone (or with family)?
Sometimes, but if I'm doing absolutely nothing then no.

15. Will you leave the house without makeup?
This is something I'm having to work through, I've managed to go out with only concealer but that's it so far.

16. How many high end products do you have?
I'm currently not at home so I couldn't tell you, but I mainly have high street products.

17. How often do you wash your makeup brushes?
Usually a deep cleanse every two weeks with a gentle clean every week.

18. Do you plan your OOTD every night or decide when you are getting dressed?
If it's the weekend or I'm going out then I will decide previous to the occasion, if not I'll just decide there and then.

19. How often do you change your handbag?
Usually every few months I buy a new one, but I always go back and use the old ones every other week or so.

20. What time do you get up & go to sleep?
I get up at 7:00am and go to bed any time between 10:00pm and 12:00am.

21. How often & when do you workout?
At the moment - not much.

22. Left-handed or Right-handed?

23. How tall are you?

24. Do you speak a foreign language?
It's been a while but my GCSE French was off the chain..

25. How many pets do you have?
Just one, Reginald the gerbil.

26. How often are you on Blogger?
Daily, I write up posts every day but other things get in the way and taking photographs takes up a lot of time.

27. Do you read the comments posted on your blog?
I do, I love reading them.

28. Do you keep a list of products to try as you see other posts?
Not really, I just make a little mental note.

29. How did you come up with your blog name?
I have no idea, I've always liked the idea of keeping a scrapbook and I love all things beauty related so it just came to me.

30. What kind of camera do you use for photographs?
Embarrassingly, I just use my phone for now.

31. How often do you clean your house? (Daily, weekly, other)
I give it a thorough clean once a week, Saturday is cleaning day.

32. What is your favourite colour?

33. What is your favourite beauty/fashion magazine?
Vogue and Allure.

34. Do you swear?

35. What are you doing with the rest of your day?
Working and shopping after that, woo!
