7 Deadly Sins Beauty Tag

Hey guys! I wanted to share a tag with you today, but I wasn’t sure which one to do. So I spent some time searching through the Internet, and I found this one. I thought it seemed quite unheard of and unique, so I’m going to give it a go! Hope you enjoy!

GREED: What is your most inexpensive beauty item? What is your most expensive?

Most inexpensive would be my Collection Extreme 24 hour Felt Liner (my favourite) and my most expensive item would be my Alice in Wonderland Urban Decay Palette.

WRATH: What beauty products do you have a love/hate relationship with? 

My most love/hate relationship with any makeup item is just attempting to put any eyeliner in my waterline. No matter how good the product is, it just never seems to stay, yet I would love to wear it. (BONUS: Matte lipsticks. They are gorgeous but why do they have to be so drying? I mean, I know why, but still.)

GLUTTONY: What are your most delicious beauty products?

My eyeshadow palettes smell good enough to eat, but MAC lipsticks are deceptively delicious smelling and tasty on the lips…

SLOTH: What beauty product do you neglect, due to laziness?

Lipsticks, if I could put it on once and it’d stay all day I would, but reapplying is such a pain.

PRIDE: What beauty product gives you the most self-confidence?

Just about any felt liner, because I live for WINGED EYELINER.

LUST: What attributes do you find most attractive in the opposite sex?

Sense of humour, kindness

ENVY: What items would you most like to receive as a gift?

I just always like trying out new things, so literally anything I don’t already have, ha!


That’s it for the 7 Deadly Sin Beauty Sins Tag, I hope you guys enjoyed it!

BLOGMAS Day 6 // The Christmas Tag

backgrounderHey guys, and welcome to the 6th day of Blogmas! I can’t believe how fast the days are going by this month! So since the whole reason I’m taking part in these festivities, is Christmas, I thought today I’d go through The Christmas Tag with you, hope you enjoy!

What is your favourite thing about Christmas?
Cue cheesy answer-time, but I just really enjoy people coming together and spreading happiness. I’m a sucker for kindness and anything that involves fairy lights and decorating.
What is your favourite Christmas movie/s?
The Grinch. Everything about it, nothing can top it for me.
Real tree or fake tree?
I’m quite open to both, we have both each year, and I can see where they both have their pros and cons. Fake trees are more practical and easy, but a real tree means you get the full Christmas experience, going to pick it, and the smell!
Giving presents or receiving them?
I am not going to pretend like I don’t like getting gifts, but I love knowing I’ve got something that someone will love for them, I almost can’t wait to just tell them!
Do you open your presents Christmas morning or evening?
Morning! But also throughout the day, as we see different family members through the day.
What tops your tree?
An angel in the living room, a star in my Christmas Wonderland, and a snowflake in my room.
 As a kid what was the one (crazy, wild, extravagant) gift you always asked for but never received?
A pony. Probably every year until I was 12.
Handmade Christmas cards or bought?
Handmade. I don’t have the time to make them, but I’d definitely prefer a handmade card instead of a bought one. But I appreciate the thought, regardless of who made it!
What’s your favourite Christmas food?
Honey roasted vegetables and roast potatoes.
Do you have any Christmas Eve traditions?
Putting snacks out for Santa and the reindeer.  Then failing to fall asleep because I’m far too excited even though I’m not even a teen any more.

That’s it for The Christmas Tag, it was really fun to answer these questions, so I definitely recommend this tag to anyone who is blogging/taking part in Blogmas this year!

Sweater Weather Tag

Fotor01011221215I’ve been nominated by the lovely Rebecca from Waves Of Thought to do the Sweater Weather tag, so today I’m sharing my answers with you guys!


Favourite Candle Scent?

My favourite year-round scent is definitely Fresh Linen, it can’t be beaten! But particularly for fall, I love cosy scents, ironically like Bath & Body Works’ ‘Sweater Weather’!

Coffee, Tea or Hot Chocolate?

I love all three, but for this time of year, hot chocolate all the way!

What’s the best fall memory that you have?

Everything. Every memory. Every year oh my word. From Christmas, to Fireworks night, Halloween and Thanksgiving. But if I had to pick just one I’d say my Halloween when I was 8, because that’s when I got Tabs and Ginge.

Which make-up trend do you prefer: dark lips or winged eyeliner?

Winged eyeliner all of the way. Though I do adore dark lips, I wear winged eyeliner with almost every makeup look I do.

Best Fragrance for fall?

I like fruity and floral fragrances all year long, so anything like Katy Perry’s Meow or Ari by Ariana Grande.

Favourite Thanksgiving food?

Honey. Roasted. Vegetables.

What is autumn weather like where you live?

Autumn weather where I live is mostly perfect, and quite picturesque really. Crispy orange leaves on the floor, bright mornings and beautiful sunsets. But I can’t hide the fact that it does rain, both heavily and annoyingly drizzly.

Most worn sweater?

I don’t really wear a lot of sweaters, but I do like wearing oversized ones for lounging about the house.

Football games or jumping in leaf piles?

Jumping in a pile of leaves, for sure!

Favourite type of pie?

I know this question is intended to be a fruity/autumnal pie, but all I can think of is chicken pie, so we’re going with that.

What song really gets you into the fall spirit?

Since Katy Perry’s Prism came out this time last year, I guess I really associate that album with this time of year especially. But I’m a sucker for Christmas music, I’ll probably start blasting that on Nov 1st…

Is pumpkin spice worth the hype?

This year is actually the first year I’ve experienced pumpkin spice, and I can safely say, yes it is. It takes a little getting used to, but it is perfect for fall.

I nominate:

Karen from Confetti & Curves

Egypt from A Girl Named Egypt

Jessica from Miss Influential


And that’s it! I hope you guys enjoyed this post, I certainly did because I’m obsessed with his time of year!

Q&A: Blogging, Life, Etc

I always like connecting with you guys, and getting to know more about you, so today I thought it was about time I answered any questions you guys might have about me, my life, or this blog! So in order to collect your questions, I gathered questions from Twitter and Tumblr, and I’m answering them today! I’ve organised all of the questions into categories below.

Fotor0708162643


Blogging:

Which of your posts is your favourite?

I have different favourites for different reasons. Such as I prefer how some look over others, but I enjoyed writing other ones more. But I think an all-rounder for me is The Truth Behind Being A Journalism Student. 

What are your personal favourite methods/platforms for gaining and keeping a loyal blog following?

I obviously signed up for Bloglovin’ shortly after creating my blog, but I don’t really have any particular methods for this. I share my content on Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr and occasionally Instagram. For me, discovering new blogs means I simply scroll through the WordPress tags from time to time and comment on and ‘like’ new blogs, so I’m consistently meeting new blogs and bloggers.

What do you find toughest about blogging?

Like all creative things, you go through bouts of seemingly unending inspiration and motivation, only to then be stopped in your tracks by a lack of inspiration. I do really enjoy every aspect of it, but that can leave me feeling a bit down on occasion. I also sometimes struggle with my personal life affecting how I feel, and therefore what I spend my time doing, but lately this blog has been a nice escape and has given me purpose.

What is your blogging set up?

Luckily, I have an entire post showing you my writing set up! My camera set up varies from post to post though, depending on the style of post, I may need a tripod, and even an extra pair of hands. Most of the time it is just me and the camera, repeatedly taking pictures from slightly differing angles.


Life:

If you could re-live a memory as many times as you wanted at the touch of a button, what memory would you choose?

I’m so lucky to have so many memories that I would absolutely love to relive, but if I had to choose just one, it would be tied between either my 18th birthday, or the day we went to go and get Sawyer and Milo.

What has been your favourite dyed hair colour?

Dark brown with purple ends. I adored that style, length and colour! It’s just a big commitment because it requires re-dyeing roughly every 3-4 weeks so it’s not very practical or economic.

Have you ever read a book/seen a film that changed how you see things in life?

Bee Movie. I mean seriously. But also About Time. It just made me realise that sometimes during the day you need to step back and appreciate even the smallest things that might normally annoy you, because without them, we wouldn’t be living. We’d just be rushing through life, existing.


Random:

Favourite flavour ice cream?

Mint Choc-Chip.

If you could be any celebrity for one day, who would you be?

Be.Yonce.

If you could invite 4 famous people to a dinner party, dead or alive, who would it be and why?

Michael Jackson, Derren Brown, Katy Perry and the creator of the chicken nugget. MJ just to share my appreciation and love for him. DB because I could talk for hours about literally anything with him. KP because she’s a gem and an all around lovely gal, and the creator of the chicken nugget to thank them, duh.

What super power would you have and what would you do with it?

I would have the superpower to be able to actually read minds. It’d take a lot of the challenge and time out of it currently.


And that’s it for this Q&A! Thank you to those of you that sent me questions, I really enjoyed answering these and putting this post together, so if you guys have any other questions for me, you can send them to me at any time either via Twitter, or my Tumblr.
