A-Z Playlist

A-ZPlaylist

Hello there on this lovely Saturday morning, or afternoon, or really just lovely day depending on what day you’re reading this. At least, I hope the day is lovely. Anyway, today I have decided to do something a little different and something that I saw a little ways back over on bookish wanderer, I saw this and just knew I had to do this because I really love music. This also has especially great timing because I am going on a really fun and long road trip in just a few days here, which I will probably talk more about in upcoming posts, so I won’t bore you with the details now. Let’s get into this playlist.

30 Questions No One Asks

It feels like it has been forever since I have done a fun tag or anything that really focuses on getting to know me, so I figured I’d do something fun and a little more personal today. I saw this post over on Simply Stella and knew it was something that I had to do, it just seemed really fun and interesting even though I have technically not been tagged directly, but that’s fine, let’s just get into the questions.

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?
