Beauty Blogger Tag

So it's a Sunday morning and I am writing this sat in my comfies, eating pancakes while reading blog posts and twittering. This was inspired by the lovely Miss Chelsea of Life of a Shoeaholic who has recently published this tag and well it looked like fun as well as a good way to tell you guys a bit more about me!



1 ~ Is your hair naturally curly or straight?
My hair is naturally straight, although it does have a slight wave to it especially if I go to bed with wet hair!

2 ~ What is your natural hair colour?
I am naturally as blonde as I am in my pictures but due to years of swimming and being lazy with washing my hair at the pool, it has darkened my hair to a dirty blonde colour now.

3 ~ Do you dye your hair yourself or go to a salon?
I always go to the Regis salons to get my hair dyed as I am terrified I am going to turn it green or something, plus I love the way my hair looks after my hairdressers done it!

4 ~ How often do you wash your hair?
Every couple of days. I try and avoid washing it everyday as due to me dying my hair is naturally dryer now that I dye it.

5 ~ Do you wear the same style everyday or change it?
I pretty much wear my hair natural 90% of the time, if I have an event or if I fancy a change I will style it differently.

6 ~ Do you do your own mani/pedi or go to a salon?
I'm a student so I do my own, much much cheaper. Plus I work in healthcare so I whenever I am in work I have to have clean nails, I do buy higher end nail polish though so that when I do my nails it feels more luxurious.  

7 ~ How often do you change your nail polish?
Depending if I'm working or not, I often try to keep one colour on my nails for a week if I'm not in work.

8 ~ Do you polish your toes in the winter or just in the summer?
50% of the time I do, if I'm having pamper night I will do them especially.

9 ~ How long does it take to put on your makeup?
My everyday face takes about 25 minutes, but it takes a bit longer depending on things like eye and lip makeup. This includes doing my full skincare routine as well, so the makeup part probably only takes about 15 minutes!

10 ~ What do you do first, face or eyes?
I've always done face first, I'm not skilled enough to not get my face makeup on my eyes if I do it the other way round.

11 ~ Do you 'collect' makeup or just buy what you need when you need it?
I kind of do a bit of both, when I first started getting into makeup I got things because they were popular and I liked them. Now I tend to 'collect' makeup when I have the spare money.

12 ~ How often do you wear false eyelashes?
I very rarely wear false eyelashes, only very occasionally when I go out to events.

13 ~ Do you do a full face of makeup everyday?
If I'm going out I tend to wear makeup, it all depends on what I am doing that day.

14 ~ Do you wear makeup when your home alone or with your family?
When I'm at home I tend to go makeup free as I like that it gives my skin a chance to breathe!

15~ Will you leave home without makeup?
I do several days a week mainly because I don't wear makeup to the gym. 

16~ How many high end products do you own?
I've never actually counted, however the high end products I own are mostly eye and lip products with the odd cheek product.

17 ~ How often do you wash your makeup brushes? 
I try to wash them every week, but it all depends on how often I have done my makeup that week!

18 ~ Do you plan your OOTD every night or just decide when you are getting dressed?
If I have a event or a special day then I will tend to plan it the night before, but it is often my case that whenever I plan my outfit the weather completely flips on its head and I have to re-pick it anyway!

19 ~ How often do you change your handbag?
Depends on what I'm wearing as well as if I find a new bag I fall in love with, I tend to change it up quite a lot as I have bags of various sizes.

20 ~ What time do get up and go to sleep?
It all varies, I try to at least be in bed by midnight especially if I'm up early the next morning. I try to get up before 9am otherwise I feel like I get in a lazy funk and don't want to do anything for the rest of the day.

21 ~ How often and when do you work out?
I have recently got back into the gym, I try to stick to a schedule of going the gym every second day but on the days when I don't go to the gym I go out on long walks with my dog.

22 ~ Left or right handed?
Right handed

23 ~ How tall are you?
I'm 5ft 3", tiny I know!

24 ~ Do you speak a foreign language?
I speak a small bit of french. I am learning sign language as well if that counts, its not foreign but its a language!

25 ~ How many pets do you have?
I've got two, a cat called Blacky and a dog named Star.

26 ~ How often are you on blogger?
While I may not post every single day on my blog, I still log on to blogger nearly every day checking on things like comments from you guys as well as working on posts.

27 ~ Do you read the comments posted on your blog?
Yes I read and reply to all the comments on my blog.

28 ~ Do you keep a list of products to try as you see other posts?
I actually don't but that's a really good idea that I might start doing in the back of the book I use to write down my blog ideas.

29 ~ How did you come up with your blog name?
Well my blog is all about my journey through my nursing degree from a student nurse to a staff nurse, so the name came naturally!

30 ~ What kind of camera do you use for your photographs?
I use the Nikon L810 to take my pictures (which I'm still getting use to, so bear with!)

31 ~ How often do you clean your house?
I live at home at the moment so the chores are split between all of us, however I try to keep my room tidy and then I hoover my floor every weekend.

32 ~ What is your favourite colour?
My favourite colour tends to flit at different times of year, but I always tend to go back to coral and salmon-y pinks.

33 ~ What is your favourite beauty/fashion magazine?
I very rarely read magazines anymore, but when I do get chance to read them I tend to reach for Glamour and Look the most!

34 ~ Do you swear?
I will admit I do swear, however not massively and I think the swear word that I ever use the most is shite!

35 ~ What are you doing with the rest of your day? 
I'm having a nice relaxed Sunday working on blog posts with the TV on in the background.

I love doing these types of posts and I think I might sprinkle them in from time to time, feel free to do this tag if you want to and let me know if you do!
