TAG: Beauty Blogger

The Questions...

1. Is your hair naturally curly or straight?
My hair is curly. :)
2. What it your natural hair colour?
I was born with blonde hair, that progressively got darker as I aged.
It's a fairly light - medium brown on it's own nowadays.
3. Do you dye it yourself or do you go to a salon?
I do it myself, generally. It's the perks of living around the corner from a Sally's beauty supply shop.
4. How often do you wash your hair?
Every few days. It gets frizzy if I wash it every day or every other. So, I will wash it say Sunday night, style it Monday morning, then use a shower cap when I shower the other days, but not wash it til Wednesday or Thursday. I'm blessed with hair that stays pretty un-greasy. (I use Got2B Rocking it Dry Shampoo when needed, also!)
5. Do you wear the same hair style everyday or do you change it up?
No. Sometimes it's just too hard to work in the morning and it ends up just getting thrown into a top knot. Other days it's perfectly agreeable, and does whatever I want. Haha.
6. Do you do your own nails or do you go to a salon?
I've never had my nails done at a salon before. So, yes, I do it.
7. How often do you change your nail varnish?
Typically whenever it starts to chip. I always have a color in my purse, and sometimes when I'm outside on campus & bored, I'll just paint my nails out of boredom.
8. Do you always wear nail varnish on your toes?
I like painting my toes because it stays on forever, y'know, way longer than finger nails. I've had this plum color on my toes for two months now and no chips.
9. How long does it take you to put on your makeup?
Depends. Like if I have extra time in the morning, you bet I will use it all, but if I wake up late, I know how to move through things fairly quickly when needed.
10. What do you do first, your face or your eyes?
11. Do you collect makeup or just buy it when your need to?
I collect, mostly. I think I've been collecting my whole life really. My mom has been selling Avon for the past 20 years, so basically when she was pregnant with me.. So, I've always really been into makeup and the application.. and REALLLLLY into having it.
12. How often do you wear false eyelashes?
I used to wear false lashes every single day because when I was younger I burnt my eye lashes and they basically look like shit now. They never quite grew back and it makes me really sad. But, I've found a couple mascaras that work for me right now, so I don't need to keep buying falsies. I'm looking to investing in the Too Faced Better Than False Lashes kit this Christmas. Hopefully it works as good as everyone on YouTube has said.
13. Do you wear a full face of makeup everyday?
Not every single day, no. If my skin looks good, I'm fine without wearing foundation. And if it's a lazy day, I won't wear foundation or eyeshadow.. I'll generally fill in my brows and put on mascara.
14. Do you wear makeup just around the house?
If I've come home from somewhere, I don't just take it off cos I'm home. But, if I wake up in the morning and I know I'm not going anywhere, then I won't put anything on.
15. Will you leave the house without makeup on?
Yes. I'm okay with going somewhere without any on. But, I'd still want to fill in my eyebrows and put on mascara. Haha. If I couldn't, then yes, I'd still be fine with it.
16. How many high end products do you have? 
I don't know. A few, I guess? I like drugstore, obviously because it's cheaper, but there are a few things I've splurged on. Plus, a lot of Avon products, which can end up kind of pricey so I'm thankful for the family discount.
17. How often do you wash your makeup brushes?
Once a week, sometimes more if they look like they need it. I also use the Mac spot cleaner when needed between washes.
18. Do you plan what you will wear the next day, or when you are getting dressed? I generally consider my options as I'm getting ready for bed, and sometimes I'll dig through my closet to find a particular item I know I want to wear but know I won't have time to dig through and find in the morning. But, that's about it.

19. How often do you change your handbag?
I just mentioned this in a video I filmed today, haha. I have a white tribal print bag that I use for more seasons, but once winter and mid fall come into play I switch it out for a dark dark dark navy bag. I dunno.. it just goes with my wardrobe better, I think.
20. What time do you get up and go to sleep?
I get up at 6:15AM on Tuesdays & Thursdays for school.
Any other day I'll sleep as late as 9, 10, 0r 11 sometimes.
When I go to bed is kind of crazy, haha. On school nights I try to get to bed before 12am, that's always the goal. On days when I know I don't have to be up & I can go out with my friends, I typically won't get to bed until like 5/6am. Haha.
21. How often and when do you workout?
I do yoga 4-5 days a week, and then I have an elliptical in my garage that I try to do total of an hour on a week. After finals are over I'll bump that up, probably.
22. Left or Right handed?
Right and left.
23. How tall are you?
I'm 5'5 ish.

24. Do you speak a foreign language?
I took Spanish all through high school but I really remember nothing. 
I know a bunch of songs in latin, german, and french though from being in choir my whole life.
25. How many pets do you have?
I have two dogs, Penny & Jake.
I have one cat, he's orange, Max.
I have three black moor goldfish, Crabman, Joy, & Earl jr.
I have four female rats, Reggie, Maeby, George, & one that needs a name, haha.
26. How often are you on blogger?
I get on daily, even if I don't post, I'm always try to respond to stuff and keep up with other people. It's been a really stressful semester.
27. Do you read the comments posted?
Of course.
28. Do you keep a list of products to try as you see other posts?
Yessss. I have one of those eStickyNotes on my home screen with a list of various things.

29. How did you come up with your blog name?
It's from an Elliott Smith song. Which I know isn't beauty related, but it means a lot to me, and it's something I knew I wouldn't get sick of.
30. What sort of camera do you use to take your photographs?
I use a Sony a200k
31. How often do you clean your room?
I generally keep it tidy-ish, but the more stressed I become over time the more crazy it gets. So, it's pretty bad right now, but I've decided that once this semester is over with I'm redoing my whole room.
32. What is your favourite colour?
I like black, pastel purple, maroon, gray, stuff like that.

33. What is your favourite magazine?
I really love Nylon. I need to renew that sub soon, haha.
34. Do you swear?
Often, yeah.

35. What are you going to do today?
Well, it's about 5PM right now, so I'm going to schedule this to post tomorrow while I'm at finals and probably get back to studying. ;p
Love, Noralee
