Blogmas Intro + Ho Ho Ho-liday Tag

Welcome toBlogmas 2017

Hello and welcome to day one of Blogmas! Just like last year, this year during Blogmas I will be here for the entire month, even though I know you are only supposed to blog through Christmas, I have some end of year things that I’m just going to wrap up instead of doing them in the new year. I have a lot planned for Blogmas, even a couple of days with a couple of posts, so I’m very excited even though I know this is going to take a lot of work, but it will be fun and completely worth it. And this year, to kick off Blogmas, I have decided to create my own tag of sorts, so if your interested stay tuned to the post below.

The Disney Tag

The Disney Tag

I’m back with another Disney tag, I did one a few months ago that I completely forgot about so I’m back doing another one because I can, this one seems to have different questions so that for sure makes it okay, right? Right. Let’s jump in and talk about some Disney.

  1. Favourite scene in a princess movie? Oh gosh, this one is hard, this whole tag might be a little bit hard. I think my favorite scene in a Disney movie has to be the entire scene in the snuggly duck during Tangled, it’s just fun and I really enjoy it.
  2. Last Disney movie you watched? I think the last one I saw in full was Moana, I really need to watch more soon because it’s been a while.
  3. Is your family Disney obsessed? I don’t think I would say they are obsessed, I think they like Disney fine but I not as much as me!
  4. How many times have you visited the Parks? I’ve only ever been to Disney World and I have been more times than I can count probably, which I completely blame on being from Orlando, it’s not that weird to go to Disney a ton when you live in Orlando.
  5. Which Park is your favourite? I guess I would have to say Disney World ’cause that’s the only park I’ve ever been to.
  6. Cinderella’s Castle or Sleeping Beauty’s Castle? Cinderella’s
  7. Favourite animal-themed movie? This one is super simple for me, The Aristocats is my all time favorite animal themed movie.
  8. Would you get married/have your honeymoon in the Parks? I would not want to get married at the parks, it seems a little bit weird to me and I just don’t like it. Now, honeymoon maybe, I don’t think it would be my first choice but I wouldn’t be mad about it either.
  9. If you could date one of the characters, who would it be and why? Flynn Rider, 100%
  10. Favourite villain? Probably Maleficent, I think she’s just a really huge villain, and while I do love Sleeping Beauty, Maleficent is a pretty bad ass villain.
  11. If you could have two characters from two different movies meet, who would they be and why? There are a ton of pairings that I could see coming together for various different reasons, but if I had to pick one I think it would be Rapunzel and Ariel because I think they would enjoy each other and it would be entertaining to see the two interact.
  12. Have you ever met any of the characters at the Parks? Yes, I’ve met all kinds of characters at the parks before, the last time I went I met Starlord and Groot, which was a really fun and cool experience.
  13. Favourite live-action Disney movie? I haven’t seen any of the newer live action fairytales yet and I don’t think I’m brushed up enough on other live action movies to really comment.
  14. Mickey or Minnie? That’s so hard and feels like an unfair question, it’s like picking my left or right leg. If I had to chose I think I would pick Mickey, he’s just really classic and screams Disney.
  15. Which Disney movie is overrated? Frozen. I love Frozen but I think it is over hyped and overrated, it’s a good movie but it’s not the best thing that Disney has ever made.
  16. Favourite Pixar movie? Probably Up, Monster’s Inc. or The Incredibles. I can’t pick!
  17. Favourite sidekick? This one is hard, there are so many options, but probably Pascal.
  18. Favourite Disney movie and why? I think I have to pick Tangled, it’s my favorite princess film hands down but I also think it’s just my favorite Disney movie. I feel like I identify with Rapunzel a little bit, plus this movie is stunning and the soundtrack is so good!

I just want to say that I tag everyone who wants to do this! If you do this you should tag me in it so I can read all about you guys’s Disney preferences. I think this was really fun and something a little bit different.

Do you love Disney?

Love The Skin Your In Tag

Love The Skin Your In Tag

I saw this tag over at ellamaygarrett’s blog and I just loved everything about it, so I decided that I wanted to do it and that is why we are here today. I guess I technically wasn’t tagged to do this but at the same time, I wasn’t not, the post I read ended in her tagging everyone and I think I could as everyone. I’m not going to give this any more of an introduction but instead just jump right on into this.

Rules

  • Thank the person who nominated you and include a link to their blog in your post
  •  Display the “love the skin you’re in” image.
  • Be truthful when answering the questions and don’t judge what other people have answered in their posts.
  • If you want to add any questions to this tag related to body positivity feel free to.
  • Try to nominate as many people as you can, if not everyone.

Questions

One feature you love about yourself? I’m probably going to choose the most cliche of answers but I think my eyes, while I can’t see very well out of them without glasses, they are somewhat interesting and I like that. They switch between darker shades of blue and lighter shades of gray, and I like that.

One feature you wish/wished you could change that you are trying to accept or have accepted? This is probably the biggest thing I avoid talking about, but I’m trying to be open and very honest in answering this tag, my answer would have to be my teeth. I have always had messed up teeth and add in a few years of not the best care and it’s just a feature I wish I could change. I’m trying to accept it but at the same time I’m also trying to change it, I’m just not sure how much changing I can really do.

Have you ever thought of getting surgery to change your imperfections? Honestly, no. It’s never really crossed my mind because I am terrified of the idea of surgery in general, so I probably wouldn’t want to put myself through that for something cosmetic.

One of your main role models for body positivity? Julie at getfitjules on Instagram, I dunno what it is entirely but she just really inspires me and it makes me happy to see her post on Instagram.

Has a family member or friend ever put you down about your physical appearance? If so what for? Oh, for sure, but I try not to hold on to those types of things. It’s been for my weight, me dressing slightly more risque sometimes, my teeth and probably a couple of other things that I just can’t think of. Sometimes my family can be brutal.

Something you love about your fashion sense or style? I love that I’ve come to a point in my life with my style that I am happy wearing whatever it is that I like, whether it be all black, really frilly, a little bit weird or maybe something that ‘shouldn’t’ be worn on my body type, but whatever it is if I like it and think it looks good I’m going to wear it.

Why is your body a great place to be? One reason would be that without it I would be here and that would just really be terrible, I do quiet enjoying being here. I may struggle with it sometimes, I may see things that I don’t like always, but it works and it’s a great body.

Before I finish this tag up, I just wanted to add a photo that I took recently where I was really feeling myself, it’s just a mirror selfie, wearing a dress that I love and freshly showered but I was really happy with how I felt and looked that day so I just wanted to share it. I’ve been holding on to this picture for a few weeks now and was waiting for the perfect time to share it.

20170721_081459

I Tag!

I just want to tag everyone who is reading this right now, I’d love to see all of you do this tag!

I really enjoyed this tag, I loved the questions and I’m really happy that I decided to do it. I think that’s really all I have to say about this one.

How are you feeling about your body today? It’s okay, to be honest, there is no judgment here.

Liebster Award 2017

Liebster Award

It’s time to do the Liebster Award I was tagged in a couple of weeks ago, it didn’t take me nearly as long to get to it as I thought it was going to, which I am super happy about that. I am also really happy to have been tagged, it feels really good and reminds me that I’m not just shouting into the internet, someone is there listening, which is always a good feeling. I knew that but like I said, sometimes it’s good to be reminded. So thank you, Kat, at thisisbeautyweb for nominating me.


Rules

  • Answer the 11 questions you were asked
  • Tag 11 new bloggers with less than 200 followers on Twitter, Facebook, or by email subscriptions
  • Create 11 new questions for your nominees
  • Recognize the blogger who tagged you

Q&A

  1. What words would you use to best describe yourself? Oh gosh, I’m really not sure. quiet yet never stops talking? Does that make any sense? I think that’s it.
  2. How did you get into blogging? Originally I was on Tumblr but eventually wanted to branch out, and over the years I’ve settled into this little place on the internet, blogging mostly about makeup.
  3. What is something you do daily/daily routine? Wake up, I try to do that every single day. But yeah, something I do every day? Pet the cats, they need all the pets and love.
  4. If it could only be one season all year, which would you pick and why? Probably fall, as much as I love the summer I lived in Florida for 22 years and summer all the time is just not as fun as I would think Fall all the time would be, the weather would just be much more enjoyable I think.
  5. What is an experience you’ve had that you’ll never forget? Does moving four states and ten hours away from my home count? Cause I don’t think I’ll ever forget that and I’m okay with that.
  6. Which quote do you find yourself using a lot? Oh, I’m not sure about that one. Maybe something like ‘You just gotta keep going’, does that count? I feel like I’m answering these questions terribly.
  7. Trends that you’ve most liked and most hated? Highlighting is something that I’ve grown to love so much! A trend I hate would probably have to be overly done eyebrows, whether that be overly plucked or filled in, I just don’t like the look of too much in either direction.
  8. What are your other hobbies besides blogging? Does shopping count? ‘Cause I’m serious. Beyond that, I like to read, watch shows with my fiance and spend time playing with makeup.
  9. Do you have any hidden talents? I can do this weird thing with my eye, but I don’t think it really counts as a hidden talent.
  10. Who are your YouTube inspirations? In my head, this is the same thing as favorite YouTubers so I’d have to say Learning ToBeFearless, leighannsays and Rhiannon Ashlee to name a few. These are all people I can’t miss a video from.
  11. If a movie was made about you, who would you want to play your character? This is easily the hardest question on here and I’m not really sure, so I’m going to have to put some thought into this one.

My Questions For You

  1.  Favorite blogger(s)?
  2. If you had three wishes, strictly three, what would you wish for?
  3. What are five books you’d bring with you on a desert island?

Ride or Die Tag

Ride or Die Tag

I’m super excited about this tag, I haven’t been tagged as usual but I did see someone else do this and decided that I also wanted to, I even added a couple of items to the list that the one I saw didn’t have. Basically, this tag is all about Holy Grail products, I don’t have an item for every catagory that’s on the list, but I did share the ones that I do have and though it would be fun to share with you guys.

20170722_110819

Primer – Benefit Porefessional – I haven’t used this primer for a little while now, I’m trying to work through another primer in my project pan, but that has got to be the all time best primer that I have ever tried. I’ve not tried an overwhelming amount of primers but at the point, I think it is safe to say that I have tried enough to crown this one the best that I’ve tried. It doesn’t feel heavy, doesn’t break me out and it really minimizes the look of my pores for a more flawless finish, so overall it’s just a really good product.

Concealer – Tarte Shape Tape – This is already a cult favorite product and I can tell why, which I know I’ve said in the past but it still remains true. This is a very thick and heavy duty concealer but that’s what I like about it, a little bit of it goes a long way and it just ends up doing everything I want in a concealer.

Foundation – Too Faced Born This Way – This was the first high-end foundation I bought and really the first foundation that started the little collection I have growing, I never really wore foundation but I find myself wearing it a lot more and liking the look of it on my skin. This is my favorite because it feels really quite light on the skin, almost like a second skin, but it has amazing coverage so it’s kind of like the best of both worlds.

Bronzer – I’m not big into bronzer and have just a few of them, I could have named my favorite out of the ones that I own and have tried but I didn’t want to do that because none of them are really something I am committed to.

Highlighter – Urban Decay Afterglow Highlighter in Sin – I love highlighter and while this isn’t the only one I use, this one is my favorite because when I just don’t know what I want to wear or how I’m feeling this is the one I pick up, it’s just so easy to use, goes with tons of look and is a fantastic formula.

Blush – Too Faced Love Flush in Baby Love – I have tried other shades of this blush and the other ones are good, but I settled on sharing this color with you guys because for me this is such an easy and effortless kind of blush to wear, it goes with most looks, is really easy to build up to how much ever color payoff you want and is all around just pretty.

Face Powder – This is one of those things that I just don’t get, what makes one powder better than others? I honestly can’t really tell a difference and buy around in terms of face powder, a little bit because I figure it doesn’t matter and a little bit because I am curious if I find the right one will it make my feelings on face powder change? But either way, I don’t have one to share.

Setting Powder – Does this mean like loose setting powder? Because if not what is the difference between setting powder and face powder? Either way I don’t really have a pick for this on either, clearly, I don’t understand powder at all.

Setting Spray – Mac Prep + Primer Fix + – I feel like such a broken record mentioning this product yet again, I feel like I’m always using this or talking about this now, but I guess that’s what makes it a Holy Grail, right? I assume so. This is just a fantastic product, I feel like it extends the wear of my makeup, smells enjoyable and really just finishes off the look that I have on my face. I always thought setting sprays were dumb and basically water, but apparently, I was wrong and some actually do things.

20170722_111512

Eyeshadow Palette – Anastasia Beverly Hills Modern Renaissance – Yup, this is the palette that I’ve chosen, mostly because I feel like choosing my own Z Palette is cheating because I put it all together myself and isn’t something that you can just pick up. I just really enjoy this palette, I feel like it’s good for all seasons, has crazy pigmented shadows and is just super easy to work with overall. It’s just a really fantastic product.

Lashes – I don’t wear lashes like ever, so I don’t have even the faintest of a clue as to what to put for this one.

Mascara – Bobbi Brown Smokey Eye Mascara – This is a newer thing in my life but it is something that I am starting to realize I might not be able to live without, it just a really great mascara and I’m not sure why it took me so long to realize how much I enjoy this as I’ve had it for a little while now.

Eyeliner – Physicians Formula 2 in 1 Lash Boosting Eyeliner + Serum in Ultra Black – This is supposed to be a dupe for the Kat Von D liner, which was probably the best eyeliner pen that I have ever used so I was super excited to try this out. While I don’t think they are exactly the same, I think that they are close enough for me to want to use this one instead of the other, especially with the price difference. This is a very black eyeliner, it doesn’t dry out quickly and I find it to be the easiest eyeliner I’ve ever tried to work with.

Eyebrows – Essence Make Me Brow – This is one of the categories that I added, mostly because I feel like brows are very important now and something that shouldn’t be left out of a tag about Holy Grails. This stuff is so cheap, but it’s a really fantastic dupe of the Benefit one but for way less, which is one of the many reasons I love this. I also love this because it makes doing my brows super easy, it’s got just the right amount of pigmentation and makes my brows look fantastic with no effort.

20170722_111912

Lip Liner – I own like four lip liners and rarely ever use them, I mostly own them from sets and gifts, but that’s alright. Since I rarely use them I don’t have anything that sticks for this one, so onto the next we go.

Liquid Lipstick – Beauty Bakerie Lip Whip – The one that is pictured here is Salted Caramel Mocha but really all of their Lip Whips are my favorite. I love these so much because they are fairly comfortable for liquid lipsticks but they have crazy lasting power, I find that most liquid lipsticks that last don’t really feel extremely comfortable but these ones aren’t too bad and only dry my lips out a little. These also come in a bunch of colors, both neutrals, classics and fun colors.

Lipstick – Lipstick Queen Hello Sailor – I almost regret listing this one as my favorite lipstick but at the same time I don’t, the other lipstick that I’m thinking about is the Nars Lipstick in Dolce Vita, but these two are fairly similar for me and I’m okay with this choice. This lipstick is something that I’ve been eyeing for a little while and I’m super glad to have this, this feels amazing on the lips and just looks so good, I’m a big fan of it. I also love that it’s blue but doesn’t apply that way, it’s just really interesting.

Lipgloss – Nyx Butter Gloss – I’m not a huge lip gloss person and I only own a few of them, but this is something that I would consider one of the best that I’ve ever tried, I personally only own a couple of them but I’m a huge fan of the ones that I do own.

Perfume – Pacifica Sugared Amber Dreams – I had to include this, this isn’t the fanciest perfume ever but it is my all time favorite, it smells amazing and just makes me happy. The smells sweet like vanilla but it’s something that’s not overly sweet, it’s got a warm scent to it, has unicorns on the packaging and I really just love it!

And those are all of my ride or die products, a pretty good mix of products and brands I think. This tag was really fun and I’m going to be annoying and tag anyone and everyone who reads this post and wants to do it, it was really fun. If you do this tag you should tag me in it so I can see what answers you guys have ’cause I would really love to read them all.

What are some of your Holy Grails products?

The Palette Tag!

The Palette Tag

It’s time for another tag! I decided to do this tag after seeing it over on Quite Simply Stella‘s blog. I wasn’t exactly tagged to do this one but I wasn’t really not tagged either, meaning that post seemed like an open invite to tag yourself, which I love because I like doing tags and I’m probably going to do them anyway, but it’s nice feeling like you’ve been invited to do it. Anyway, enough rambling and into the tag.

1. What Was Your First Palette? Was the Urban Decay Book of Shadows III, I don’t think it was the original release of this palette but it was still the third one. I drooled over it ’cause I was like 16 and had no money, then my sister got it for me for Christmas and I was so excited. This was the first palette I ever used up an eyeshadow in and the palette that started my love of all things Sin.

2. Your Most Recent Purchase? I do not have either in my possession quite yet but I recently ordered two palettes. The first one is the Jeffree Star Androgyny Eyeshadow Palette, I still have mixed feelings about purchasing from the brand but I did cave and pick up three items because I just really wanted to try the products. The other is the BH Cosmetics Take Me Back To Brazil Eyeshadow Palette, I need no more makeup but I can’t help myself sometimes, I am a hoarder and have problems but I am excited to get my hands on so many fun shades of eyeshadow!

3. One That You Regret Missing Out On? The Anastasia Artist Palette , I feel like I would have had so much fun playing with this one but at the time I really didn’t know anything about the brand, so I missed out on this one.

4. One That Makes You Happy To Look At? This one was a weird one to me but I settled on the Tarte Swamp Queen Eye & Cheek Palette, mostly because I just really like looking at it, I like the overall design and I like Bunny so it makes me happy, even though I don’t use it quite as much anymore.

5. One That You’ve Changed Your Mind About? This one is a tough one, I feel like it’s for sure the Lorac Pro 3 though, I was obsessed with this one when I got it and I don’t think I hate it now but it’s just not something that excites me anymore, it’s kind of really eh.

6. One That Surprised you? We’re gonna talk about a highlight powder, the Sleek Solstice Highlighting Palette, everyone talks about it and seems to love it but for some reason, I was expecting it to be really awful and it wasn’t, I’ve only used it a few times thus far but I am really into it.

7. One That Inspires You Most? Is it cheating if I pick my own Z Palette? If so then I think the NYX Brights Ultimate Shadow Palette is probably my most inspiring, it has so many colors for be such a little palette but it’s so colorful and I always have a fun time playing with it.

8. One On Your Wishlist? A bunch of things are my wishlist, I’m a makeup hoarder and lover, but I am trying to keep myself contained. Anyway, I think at the top of my list is the Pretty Vulgar Pretty Birdie Eyeshadow Palette.

9. Your No Fail Palette? This has to be the Anastasia Modern Renaissance Eyeshadow Palette, I just find this one so easy to work with and if I’m in a hurry but want to do eyeshadow it’s just such a quick palette for me to put together a look with. Everyone seems to be a big fan of this palette and I can see why I am also a huge fan of it.

10. One You Regret Purchasing? I recently bought a fair amount of new products from new brands at Ulta, which you will see an upcoming post about, but one of the things I kind of regret and that’s the Lottie London The Rusts Eyeshadow Palette. It’s not super expensive or anything but it was just so disappointing, I’ve only used it a couple of times though so I guess I’m going to try it out a little bit more and see if I can make it work before passing it along or chucking it.

And that was my palette tag, I always really enjoy doing tags and if you enjoy doing tags you should do this one too! And tag me in it so I can see your answers.

What is your all time favorite palette?

Summer Tag!

Summer Tag!

It’s officially summer time! As some of you may be aware and I have been waiting so long for this, I’m not used to normal falls, springs, and winters so this past year has been a little bit rough, but summer is something I know, love and am excited about! And because of that, I’ve decided to do a few summer posts in celebration! And today I’ve decided to do a really fun tag, the summer tag, the slight catch is that I couldn’t find one that I liked all of the questions so I just kind of made my own, I picked a few questions here and there and combined them into this tag. So, a little bit of cheating was involved. Anyway, let’s jump right on into the questions.

Are you a summer person?

Yes, 100% I love the summer!

Your dream summer vacation?

Oh, somewhere fun and on the beach. I’d really love to go to Key West because I’ve always wanted to go, but I’m not limited to there. Anywhere that’s pretty, is a beach and I’m not at work.

Favorite summer drink?

Probably lemonade or water, really boring but really great drink choices I think.

Fireworks or Fireflies?

Fireworks, however, I am enjoying the fireflies, I never had them growing up.

S’mores or ice cream?

Ice cream! Hands down!

Watermelon or Strawberries?

This one is super easy, Watermelon. It’s my favorite fruit and possibly my favorite food ever.

What is the weather like where you live in the summer?

I am from Florida, so summers for me used to be super hot and humid, but I moved to Virginia and this is my second summer here, it’s a lot different. It’s hot and humid here but it hasn’t been consistent, there have even been some days where it was in the 70’s and that is not something I’m used to.

Pool or Beach?

 Both? This is hard, pools are fun on those days that you don’t want to travel or the water is all churned up, or if you want to just swim casually but beaches are fantastic and beautiful. So both.

What is your favorite lip color this summer?

Probably Hello Sailor by Lipstick Queen

Would you rather spend a summer day outside in the pool or inside watching Netflix?

It really depends on when you catch me, right now inside watching Netflix.

Favorite summer nail polish?

Probably Essie’s Mojito Madness, it’s a really gorgeous green shade and the formula is amazing!

 Favorite summer scent?

The smell of watermelon count?

Bikinis, tankinis, or one piece?

Either bikinis or on pieces.

What is your favorite summer candle?

Sugared Lemon from Bath & Body Works

What is your favorite thing about the summer?

The beach.

Are you excited about the summer?

My First Time Tag!

My First Time Tag

I had something else planned for today, but it just didn’t turn out the way that I wanted it to so that is something that I will have to save for a later date I think, so I’ve decided to do something that I saw recently on The Bookish Wanderer Blog, that is the My First Time Tag. This seemed really fun and like something that I wanted to do! So let’s just get right on into the questions!

My First Language?

English and it is still the only language that I speak, I really want to learn another language but I just haven’t gotten around to it.

My First Toy?

I’m pretty sure it was a stuffed rattle that played you are my sunshine when you squeezed it, which I still have, I’m just not completely sure that it was my first toy but close enough.

First Person You Subscribed To On Youtube?

I’m not really sure but probably someone like Shane Dawson.

Where Was Your First Sleepover?

Probably sometime when I was six or seven and at my best friend at the times house, however, it was no successful as her house was nasty and I couldn’t stay there, I won’t go into detail but I will say that. My first successful sleepover was probably a few years later.

First Book I Remember Reading?

Mr. Rabbit and the Lovely Gift, one hundred percent is the first book that I ever read, my grandma bought it for me at a yard sale and I still have it sitting on my bookshelf, it’s something that I’ve kept for so long and am really glad that I did.

First Movie You Remember Seeing?

I think it was the Little Mermaid.

My First Ever Cell Phone?

Was a flip phone that I could only make calls on and I stuck choco cat stickers on, it wasn’t fancy at all but I was so excited to have it so I could call my friends.

My First Fear?

Raccoons, I never really understood why either and they still really creep me out, I think I can handle them a little bit better now but I don’t think it’s at the top of my list any longer.

First Makeup Item?

Probably some sort of lip gloss from LipSmackers.

First Time I Ever Got In Trouble At School?

Honestly, I’m not sure that I ever got in trouble at school.

My First Job?

I mowed grass for a little while.

The First Thing I Do Ever Morning?

Probably either grab for my glasses or my phone.

My First Thought Today?

I honestly have no idea what my first thought was today.

The First Text I Sent Today?

First Broken Bone?

I’ve actually never broken a bone before, but I have sprained my ankle really badly twice so far, I’m kind of waiting to break that ankle because of how many times I’ve sprained it.

Were my ears when I was 16, my mom never wanted me to get my ears pierced but I finally talked her into it, now I have two holes in each ear.

I do not have any.

The First Concert I Ever Attended?

Was a Van Halen concert, my dad one four tickets and a trip off the radio station, so he brought me, my sister and mom along.

It really depends on what happened, but most of the time I would say my fiance is the first person I text about exciting things, if I’m not with him of course.

This or That Tag!

This or That Tag

It is time to do something a little bit fun today, which means it is time to do a tag post, today’s tag post is the This or That Tag. I saw this tag over on Southern Lights, Atlanta Lights blog and it seemed fun and like something that might be kind of interesting, so instead of explaining any more, I’m just going to jump right on into the questions.

Makeup!

  1. Blush or Bronzer: Blush, I’ve just recently gotten into trying out bronzer and I’m not completely sold on it.
  2. Lip Gloss or Lipstick: As of recently I think I would go with lip gloss, which I never thought I would say.
  3. Eyeliner or Mascara: Mascara, eyeliner by itself with no mascara just looks weird, but mascara without eyeliner is fine. Also, just can’t live without mascara.
  4. Foundation or Concealer: Concealer, I think I can get away without foundation but I really like having concealer to spot cover or to deal with darkness under my eyes, so concealer for sure.
  5. Neutral Eyeshadow or Colorful Eyeshadow: This is a hard one! I think I’ll have to go with neutral eyeshadows, mostly because neutral shadows can be worn for an occasion and colorful is a little bit harder to pull off.
  6. Pressed Eyeshadow or Loose Eyeshadow: Pressed, I used both but pressed are just way easier to use.
  7. Brushes or Sponges: This one is so hard, for foundation or everything? I’m just going to assume it’s for applying everything and with that in mind I have to go with brushes, sponges just wouldn’t work as well for applying eyeliner, eyeshadow and things like that. I don’t want to give up my sponges though!

Nails!

  1. Long or Short: I have had both, kind of, well what is long for me because I grew my nails out at one point, but anyway I think I prefer them on the shorter side but compared to what I have right now I would like them to be a tiny bit longer.
  2. Acrylic or Natural: Natural. I’ve never had acrylic nails but I don’t think I would like them and don’t have any plans of ever trying them, so 100% natural.
  3. Bright Colors or Dark Colors: Bright colors, I like dark colors but I love bright colors. Why isn’t light included in this? I would probably pick light over bright, but it’s not so bright.
  4. Flower or No Flower:  I’m assuming that this is talking about floral designs on the nail and I think I’m going to have to pass, I usually just wear solid color nails because I am super boring like that.

Body!

  1. Perfume or Body Splash: This really depends on how I’m feeling and where I am going, but I own way more body splashes so I guess I’m going to go with body splashes?
  2. Lotion or Body Butter: I think this really depends on the season for me, meaning in the summer time I may go for something a little bit lighter which means lotion to me, but in the winter time I go for body butter, so can I say both? No? Well then, I think I’m still going to choose body butter.
  3. Body Wash or Soap: I feel like my answer is the answer that most people would say and that is body wash, does anyone even use bar soap anymore? I don’t know anyone that does.
  4. Lush or Another Company: This is a kind of hard one for me because I do not solely use Lush products but I really love them, so I can’t really decide. I love Lush for bath products and I love a lot of their showers gels and jellies, but I get a lot of my skincare and hair care from else where, although I am trying to try out more Lush products. In conclusion, I don’t know, I really love a lot of brands when it comes to body care and I really love Lush. I refuse to chose.

Fashion!

  1. Jeans or Sweats: At home: Sweats. In public: Jeans.
  2. Long Sleeve or Short Sleeve: I guess this really depends on the season, but if I had to chose short sleeve because I’ll just put a jacket or six on.
  3. Long Dresses or Skirts: Long skirts probably, but I love long dresses, short dresses, long skirts and short skirts. What I am saying is I like not wearing pants.
  4. Stripes or Plaid: Stripes, no questions asked.
  5. Flip Flops or Sandals: Sandals, they are comfier and a lot cuter!
  6. Scarves or Hats: I don’t wear either ever hardly, but probably scarves.
  7. Studs or Dangly Earrings: I have two holes in each ear and I forget to wear earrings all the time, but I go for studs more frequently I believe.
  8. Necklace or Bracelet: Necklaces, I never wear bracelets.
  9. Heels or Flats: Flats. I don’t even own a pair of heels.
  10. Cowboy Boots or Riding Boots: Riding boots, I do not own a pair of cowboy boots and I’m not a huge fan of the look.
  11. Jackets or Hoodies: Jackets, I own one hoodie and I workout in it in the winter, that is all.

Hair!

  1. Curly or Straight: Curly, but I never do my hair so from day to day my hair is natural which is wavy.
  2. Bun or Ponytail: I do both but ponytail, it’s just easier for me to pull off quickly.
  3. Bobby Pins or Butterfly Clips: Bobby Pins.
  4. Hair Spray or Gel: Neither, but if I had to pick hair spray.
  5. Long or Short: Long.
  6. Light or Dark: Dark
  7. Side Swept Bangs or Full Bangs: Sideswept, I don’t like full on bangs.
  8. Up or Down: I think I wear it up more just because it’s gotten so long and I’m trying to keep it out of my way, it gets in everything.

Random!

  1. Rain or Shine: Shine, I don’t do well in the rain.
  2. Summer or Winter: Summer, always summer.
  3. Spring or Fall: I’m indifferent to these two, I love both equally.
  4. Chocolate or Vanilla: Vanilla, maybe I’m boring or maybe I like that it’s the most versatile.
  5. Backstreet Boys or *NSYNC: *NSYNC forever!
  6. Coca-Cola or Pepsi: Coke, I don’t like Pepsi itself.
  7. Cake or Pie: Probably pie, that doesn’t mean that I don’t like cake though, I just really like a good slice of pie.
  8. Sephora or ULTA: I’ve been getting more into Sephora recently but if I had to pick one I would 100% chose Ulta, I love Ulta so much and there is now one right up the road from me which I am so excited about!
  9. Being Hot or Cold: I’d rather be hot than cold.
  10. Apple or Android: Android.
  11. East Coast or West Coast: East Coast all the way!
  12. North or South: South.
  13. Books or Magazines: Books, I’m always reading some book.
  14. Hot Fudge or Caramel: Hot fudge, especially on top of ice cream.
  15. Sunrise or Sunset: Sunset, sunrise is so early.
  16. Apples or Bananas: Bananas, I like apples too but I prefer bananas.
  17. Baseball or Basketball: Neither, I don’t care.
  18. Football or Hockey: See answer above.

And those are all of the questions, I had a lot of fun answering these and I feel like the random questions are where my Floridian kind of shines out, meaning I prefer being warm and I’m from the southeast, so these are things that I pick. But anyway, I am not going to tag anyone, instead, I am going to tag everyone who wants to do this! If you do this you should link me in the comments and I’ll go check it out because I’m really interested in seeing what other people’s answers are.
