Beauty Blogger Tag - Tag Post!


My thanks to the beautiful Lisa from Améliorer la Vie for tagging me! If you haven't seen her blog yet, you should definitely check it out, it is BEYOND darling with so much more than just beauty! The way Lisa explains her blog name says it all...

"In French, "améliorer" means "to improve" or "to make better." This will be a humble attempt at a blog about the things that make my life better such as time spent with family and friends, inspiring ideas, beauty products, travel, and great deals."

 Is that not just divine? I love it! Here are the tag rules:

      • Tag some more beauty bloggers
      • Title this as I've done to show what the tag is about

::Ahem::.....This tag was created by The Beau Bow! Well that was easy enough! ::grins::

I've definitely titled this blog as for the tagged beauty bloggers, well you just have to read on to find out who they are!....

1) Name a beauty routine you rarely do.

I RARELY straighten my hair. Come to think of it, I NEVER straighten my hair lol. Ever...seriously. I like my wild mane! Give me volume or give me..!..well you get the idea.

 2) Is washing your makeup brushes something you do regularly?

::le sigh:: Didn't I just admit to this in my last tag? ::blushes:: SHOULD be, and I have gotten more and more lax over time. Ladies....DO NOT DO THIS. I do wash my main eyeshadow brushes, powder brush and concealer brush at least twice a week, however, I really should be doing it more as well as washing all the others more often. ::slaps wrist again::

3) How long will you last with chipped nail varnish?

Depends on the chip! If it's fixable I'll touch it up with polish (especially if I know I won't have time to do a whole mani), but if more than one chips or if it's a big chip....haha....about 5 seconds. I'd rather have no polish on at all than a chipped mani. Does that make me sound snotty? ::turns up nose at chips::

4) How long do you put off buying/replacing a beauty or nail polish product even if you need it (i.e. - top coat, foundation, etc.)?

I never let it get that far, haha! If I see that I have about 1/4 of the product left I panic and order a new one literally right away. Then I have a few days of anxiety where I feel absolutely SURE that I'm going to run out (magically) and not have the new one yet. It has yet to happen...but I have a vivid imagine. Oh hush you.

5) What is your worst beauty habit?

You know what's funny...I'm going to go with Lisa on this one. I totally wash my hair every day which most people say is a no-no. My hair is just so thin and oily, I really have to. I've tried going long periods of time without washing since everyone says that your scalp will eventually adjust and stop producing so much oil, but alas, that was not the case with me. I have to go 4 days without washing my hair right after I dye it and it is TORTURE ::dramatic pose:: 

6) Name something non-beauty related that you put off all the time.

Folding laundry. I wash that laundry like it's nobodies business. I don't wait until a certain "laundry day", if I have enough to wash, I wash them, but then into the basket they go afterwards and somehow someway they never seem to make it up the stairs to the bedroom. I'm just going to tell myself that I thoroughly enjoy watching my cat Marie carry my husband's clean socks around (She's 12 years old, about 7lbs and about a foot long...the sock is bigger than her I think). Obviously if the socks were put away in the drawers then she couldn't get to them. Obviously. Sheesh.

     7) When going out somewhere, do you leave getting ready until the last minute or not?

Absolutely. If I get ready earlier then my hair will look less lively, or my makeup my not look as fresh. I usually give myself a 2 hour window in which I know I need start getting ready. Doesn't mean I don't run into that window as late as can be though! However, I come out looking FANTASTIC. 

8) Can you commit to spending bans?

Hahahahahhaahahahhaa.......oh that a serious question? ::hides face::

9) How organized is your makep and nail polish collections?

About as organized as they can be right now with the cases being too small to contain everything I have. I have an OPI polish case that is too full, so I also stuck some polishes in a couple of Glossybox boxes. I also keep some out on my sofa table that I need to review or try. As far as my makeup, I have a Caboodles case for my eyeshadow palettes that just hit it's full point, then another Caboodles case for my lip products, then ANOTHER Caboodles fold-out case for the rest of my makeup. I've already done my cleaning for the Summer, throwing out old/expired makeup, but I'm still running out of room, eep!

10) What is the longest time you've gone without writing a blog post?

It appears to be six days! My sincere apologies! I am worried that this upcoming week may prove to be my longest though. Crazy work week!

Such a fun tag post! My thanks again to Lisa from Améliorer la Vie for tagging me, and if you want to check out HER tag post, here's the link:
