Get to know me: The beauty blogger tag

1. Is your hair naturally curly or straight?
This is a tough question because I honestly can’t give a straight answer. When I was younger it was super curly but from all the heat and colour damage it is no longer, BUT it is also not straight now either. I would say it is kind of like a beachy wave look now.
2. Do you dye it yourself or go to a salon?
I typically dye my hair myself, however if I have the extra money I will go to my hairdresser and get her to do it for me. The last time I went to a salon was about a year ago when I went red for the first time and I was too afraid to do it myself, but after the first time I was able to do all my touchups from home. My hair now is currently my natural colour with the ends a bit darker as I am pregnant and can’t do it now, but I am also trying to grow it out and make it healthy again.
3. Do you wear the same style everyday, or do you change it?
I rotate through about 4 hairstyles…  my hair is so long so it takes forever to actually do stuff with it so my go to is usually a bun, but I also straighten it, curl it, or throw it up in a ponytail sometimes too.
4. Do you do your own mani/pedi or go to a salon?
Definitely do my own 95% of the time. I hate how expensive it is to get them done at a salon, and I have so many nail polishes it just makes more sense for me to do them myself.
5. How often do you change your nail polish?
I honestly don’t even wear nail polish that often anymore, but when I get into my phase of doing it all the time I usually change it every couple days because I get sick of a colour, or it doesn’t match what I’m wearing.
6. Do you polish your toes in the winter or just the summer?

I try to, but with wearing socks all the time I usually forget to paint them. If they are polished in the winter the colour stays the same for a lot longer than they do in the summer.

7. How long does it take for you to put on makeup?
It ranges on how much time I actually give myself to do my makeup. If i have a 9 am class I usually don’t wake up until like 45 minutes before, so I go for an easy no makeup look just to look alive. If I am going out somewhere or just feel like doing my makeup it can take anywhere from 20 minutes or longer. Longer for sure if I am trying out something new or just experimenting though.
8. What do you do first? Face or eyes?
Face, I know sometimes depending on the shadow I am using I should probably do my eyes first to avoid fallout, especially if I’m using a glitter one. But even with the fallout I feel so weird doing my eyes first. I also usually put foundation on my eyelids too so it’s just easier to do it all first and not risk ruining my eyes.
9. Do you collect makeup or just buy what you need when you need it?
You can ask my bank account and anyone who knows me… I am 100% a collector. I spend waaay too much money on makeup, and my collection shows it. With my son on the way though I have stopped purchasing so much as I began to share my makeup addiction with cute things for him. However holidays make the perfect excuse for my collection to grow!
10. How often do you wear false eyelashes?
Not often enough. I also only have like 1 pair currently and I suck at putting them on. I absolutely love the way they look but I usually fail at putting them on… I tend to leave them for special occasions… but I do LOVE the way they look and should wear them more often. Practice makes perfect!!
11. Do you do a full face of makeup everyday?
50/50. I used to do it everyday but this pregnancy has taken every ounce of energy that I have out of me and I found out that I’m now low on iron as well. So now I usually just do a basic face, or if I’m feeling up to it I will go all out.
12. Do you wear makeup when you’re home alone or with family?
^^ look at the above answer. With the low iron I have zero energy so I have stopped wearing makeup most of the time.
13. Will you leave the house without makeup?
If you would have asked me this question 6 months ago before I was pregnant and the answer would have been no way! but as you can tell from the previous 2 answers the answer is 100% yes now, although I prefer to have atleast a basic face on.
14. How many high-end products do you have?
Quite a bit, however they are mostly palettes and gift sets as I can’t bring myself to spend the prices of single high-end products (minus my couple that are my go to products.) I have high end minis of primers and lip sticks and drug store foundation, bb cream and liquid eyeliner, but I would say the rest is all high end.
15. Do you plan your OOTD every night or decide when you’re getting dressed?
Typically when I’m getting dressed, unless it is for a special event or I’m packing to go somewhere.
16. How often do you change your handbag?
Not very often, I have 3 bags that I alternate through.. My large cheetah print Coach cross body, my pink Guess crossbody, and my small classic Coach crossbody, which I would say is my go-to unless I need a larger one, in that case I choose one of the other 2.
17. What time do you wake up and go to sleep?
Oh my… my sleep schedule is beyond crazy thanks to my pregnancy… I usually fall asleep anywhere from 2:3-5 am and then I sleep until 1-4pm, then have another nap somewhere in there. I’m trying to get it back on schedule before the baby comes, but it’s so difficult!
18. How often or when do you workout?
Not often enough, with the complicated pregnancy I’ve been having I haven’t been able to. But before I was in the groove of going to the gym a few times a week.
19. Left handed or right handed?
Right.
20. How tall are you?
5’6″
21. Do you speak any foreign languages?
A LITTLE bit of french, just from high school, but no where near enough to be fluent or understand conversations in it.
22. How many pets do you have?
I have 2 pets, my boston terrier/pug mix Roxy, and my kitten London.
23. How often are you on Blogger?
Well…. this is my first post.. so not often. But I am going to try and post as often as I can.
24. Do you read comments posted on blogs?
^^ see above. I will read the comments posted on mine, not too sure about others tho.
25. Do you keep a list of products to try as you see other posts?
Yes, I have a large list of products I want to try.. however getting them is more difficult now with a son on the way.
26. How did you come up with your blog name?
It’s just my name with an xo at the end.. not super creative. I guess I’ll thank my mom
27. What kind of camera do you use for your photographs?
Iphone usually, but I also a Canon Rebel XS that I should use more often than I do.
28. How often do you clean your house?
I live with my papa, and don’t usually leave my room unless I am not at home, so I guess I just clean my room… (and by that I mean my boyfriend cleans it because I can’t currently bend over to pick things up without getting on all fours.. oops) but I try and keep it tidy, but clean I would say every few weeks to a month probably.
29. What’s your favorite color?
Pink or Tiffany Blue!!
30. Do you swear?
Should probably work on that.. especially with a baby due in February.

31. What are you doing with the rest of your day?

It’s 7pm and I’m currently on a trip to visit my friends and for an appointment for my son, but the friend I’m staying with is going out.. so I’ll probably just snack on something, watch Youtube videos, and maybe make a couple more posts before I pass out.
