Get To Know Me Tag

It was lovely to see that I had been tagged to do this post by one of my favourite bloggers – Izzie

It’s a nice post to do to bring the beauty/fashion blogging community closer together and I look forward to reading everyone else’s answers too :).


Is your hair naturally curly or straight?
My hair is naturally curly, which looks dreadful when it’s short and when I first wake up in the morning! However, now it’s grown out really long I have learnt to embrace my curls and have stopped straightening them to death.

Do you dye it yourself or go to a salon?
Because I have naturally dry and curly hair, I am a bit against dying it as I am scared of damaging it! For this reason I have never dyed it, even though I am so tempted to ombre the ends.

Do you wear the same style everyday or do you change it?
I have a few outfit combinations that I wear all the time that I feel good in and are still really comfy. When I go on a night out or out with my friends I tend to switch it up a bit more as I love experimenting with make-up and dressing up more.

Do you do your own mani/pedi or go to a salon?
For someone who has such a vast nail polish collection, I really should spend more time on my nails. I have long nails so have never gone to the salon to get mine done. When I can be bothered I do my nails myself – looking at my chipped ones now I’m probably due a re-paint.

How often do you change your nail polish?
Reading the question above you’ve probably guessed that I’m a bit rubbish doing my nails. I probably paint them about once a week.

Do you polish your toes in winter or just in summer?
I paint my toenails every week or so too, as I still like to pamper myself in the Winter time.

How long does it take you to put on your make up?
It depends where I’m going! If I’m doing my everyday make-up it probably takes around ten minutes. If I’m going on a night out I’ll spend a lot longer debating on what I want to put on my face and changing it repeatedly because I’m never happy with it.

What do you do first, face or eyes?
I always do my face first, and tend to re-top up the concealer under my eyes after I do my eye make-up.

Do you collect make-up or do you just buy what you need and when you need it?
As a student, I don’t have a lot of money to spend on make-up. Although I have more products than I need, I wouldn’t say I have a very vast collection.

How often do you wear false eyelashes?
I love false eyelashes! They are not something that I would wear on a day-to-day basis but I think they really bring your eyes to life on a night out.

Do you do a full-face of makeup every day?
No – sometimes I wear no make-up, and usually I just whack on some foundation and mascara.

Do you wear make-up when youโ€™re home alone or with your family?
I don’t do my make-up if I’m home alone unless I’m really bored and fancy an experiment. I’ll only really wear make-up when I’m with my family if we are going out somewhere.

Would you leave the house without make-up on?
For those of us at university, a 9am lecture or seminar feels like it’s about 5am. For this reason, I’ll usually be running out of our house at 8:30 without any make-up on! So yeah, I probably go out without make-up fairly often – sadly this is always when I run into people.

How many high-end products do you own?
I don’t have very much high-end make-up at all – mainly because I think the highstreet does it so well! I own a Clinique Chubby Stick gift-set so I have 5 of those, I got some Benefit mascara for Christmas and have some MAC concealer. Apart from that, I stick to my trusty Rimmel, The Body Shop or Maybelline products!

Do you plan your OOTD every night or when youโ€™re getting dressed?
I wish I was organised enough to plan what I am going to wear! I usually try the entire contents of my wardrobe on and then it all ends up in a heap on my floor before I go out.

How often do you change your handbag?
I’m more of a shoes girl than a bag girl – so not very often at all.

What time do you wake up and go to sleep?
My sleeping pattern is very messed up, so there’s not really any set sleeping times for me.

Left-handed or right-handed?
Iโ€™m a leftie!

How tall are you?
I haven’t been measured in ages, so I’m guessing I’m around 5”4-5”5

How many pets do you own?
This question breaks my heart because I want pets so much and have never been able to have any! When I leave home I am going to get a cat and spoil it so much ๐Ÿ™‚

How do you blog?
If I know I’m going to be away I put my posts in a queue and let them post automatically. I try to post every couple of days.

Do you read comments posted on blogs?
I love snooping through people’s blog posts and the comments on them as I am a bit nosey.

Do you keep a list of products you see on other blogs?
I don’t, but if it is a product everyone raves about then I keep a mental note to try it out.

How did you come up with your blog name?
My boyfriend came up with it as he is the creative one!

Whatโ€™s your favorite color?

Do you swear?
I’d like to lie and say no, but yes I am guilty of swearing on a daily basis.

What are you doing with the rest of your day?
I just got back from Holiday, so I need to do some unpacking. I’m really sleepy to so I might have a cheeky nap too!

I’d like to tag these other great bloggers to do this post! It was a lot of fun ๐Ÿ™‚ Let me know if you do answer because I’d love to read the responses. If I haven’t tagged you but you want to do the same post, then post a comment and I’ll go and check yours out ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. I did this tag too, so much fun ; )
    I looove your long curly hair, so pretty!
    Haha, I know what you mean by classes in the morning, when I have classes at uni at 8am it LITERALLY feels like the middle of the night, such an ungodly hour.
    But I also have a screwed up sleeping schedule (nonexistent), so it doesn’t help.
    Love your answers and happy new year!
