Questions & what I've learned from blogging!

Hey guys! I'm bored and don't want to go to sleep yet, so I thought I'd do some of the little survey things I've been tagged in. For anyone who gives me blog awards, I really appreciate it but I am far too lazy to retag people and all that stuff. >:D But here's some questions I've been tagged in! This first set is from Nicole. 1. What is your favorite brand of makeup and why? Could there be a more difficult question? haha. I guess I'd have to say Hi Fi cosmetics, I've placed more orders (big ones, too) from there than any other company, the eyeshadows are just the best. But I do love Urban Decay and Too Faced as well! Milani is a great drugstore brand. 2. What is the most you've ever paid for one single item of makeup or other beauty related product? Does my Benefit Confessions of a Concealaholic count, since it's a set? If not, I think UDPP. Seriously. $17. I like my bargains. 3. Hot rollers or curling iron? Neither... I just have to put my hair up most days because of work. If I have the day off, I straighten it. 4. How long does it take you to get ready in the mornings? If I get to take my time and do things how I like, a good hour. I really like to actually get to do fun makeup on my days off, plus the extra few minutes for my hair. 5. Do you have a "beauty budget" each month? HAHAHA as if such a thing exists... my paycheck is my beauty budget. 6. What skincare line can't you live without? I'm not big on skincare products. I pretty much keep it to the basics. 7. Who is your all time beauty icon? This is gonna sound cheesy, but all you beauty bloggers! I don't have any kind of celebrity or model beauty icon, I get inspiration from you guys :) 8. Do you wear makeup and fix your hair even when you aren't going out? Sometimes! I don't need to look pretty for other people, it's fun to look nice for myself. This set is non-beauty related, just 10 things that I like, from Michelle. 1. Feminism. I can't wait for the only course I'm taking this semester: Women in Arts, Culture, and Society. 2. The new show Haven on Syfy. I want to live in Haven. It's so crazy and cozy. 3. The movie Saw. I just watched it for the first time tonight (I know, how has someone so movie obsessed, especially with horror films, never seen it?), and it was pretty cool. 4. Nail polish, which I can't wear because of work. I have around 30 untried bottles that will just have to wait until I eventually leave Arby's. 5. My favorite of the many Asian grocery stores in town, where they will sell me their sushi dirt cheap if I come in late at night to buy it... sushi cravings, man. 6. Buying socks & panties... the cheap thrill of spending money without the sadness of emptying your wallet. Almost every pair of socks I own is argyle. 7. Days off... I don't get enough of them. One a week, typically. 8. My Hello Kitty fleece blanket I'm using right now :) 9. Cool weather, and soon I hope! Pleeeeeeeease. 10. The fact that Shiro Cosmetics just released 8 new colors... shewt. And of course, Charlotte posted today some things she's learned from beauty blogging (I'm sure a lot of you have already seen her post). I thought I'd add a few of my own! .Drugstore makeup in the UK is awesome. .Different types of shadow brushes really do make a difference! .All lipstick does not smell like old ladies! .Face primer is a must. .Amazing websites like Beauty Ticket or Haute Look (when it has good sales) have pricey brand products at good prices. See how oblivious I was before I started blogging in November? :P What are some things you've learned since you started blogging?


  1. LOL @ the lipstick old ladies comment. Back when we were in high school my bff told everybody that lipstick was for old ladies and lipgloss was for young people, and now she's eating her words XD

  2. Hahahaha, I buy knickers when I don't want to spend loads of money but I have to buy something, too!

  3. OMG girl you've so go to watch the other 5 Saws, it gets better sicker and more twisted ever time ! But you have to watch them in the right order, because they're all inter-linked, which I think is fab in a way. No Jaws like you get the 1, then the 2 is the same story different setting, same for Jaws 3 then Jaws 4 (although I like the shark attacks - give me blood any time !), although you still have the game, you do have a story all through the movies.

  4. I loved this post and UK drugstore make up is pretty awesome.
    Just ordered the new Shiro colors this morning, super excited!

  5. hahahha paycheques is beauty budget. So true. I just got paid and I'm trying to figure out what goes the who, not bills wise lol. AND KYOOT LAST PICTURE!!

  6. Woo I love argyle socks too! XD

  7. Thanks for participating in the tag! Great answers!! I don't really like horror flicks, but for some reason, LOVE the Saw movies! Pretty sick and twisted stuff! But very entertaining!

  8. "Drugstore makeup in the UK is awesome."

    Um, right? Wtf America.

  9. @SilhouetteScreams: I always used to say that, too... I think it was the powdery smell of my mom's old lipsticks... gross.

    @Robyn: It's a win win situation :D

    @MartianDelights: With each one up until 6, the star ratings on IMDB get lower and lower, lol. But I still want to see at least 2, and I'll keep going if it's any good. They're making a 3D one now :O

    @Erline: I'm trying to narrow it down, there's so many beautiful choices!

    @KittenMittens: The only non-beauty money I've spent since payday was for chinchilla food :P We have a problem.

    @Simone: YES! A fellow argyle lover!

    @Nicole: I'm surprised at how popular they are, now having actually seen one. To me it was more of a psychological thriller, but I bet the others are more standard horror. I guess I'll see!

    @Julissa: I knowwww, they're all like "Here you go, have some awesome colorful and glittery things!" and American stuff is like "If you want a non-pigmented brown, we've got you covered!"
