I saw this tag while searching for beauty related tags I could do. I really like the range of questions so if you have already done this tag or are planning on doing it. Please leave me a comment below so I can go and check it out!
1.How many times do you wash your face?
At least twice. Once in the morning and again at night. I might do it more especially if my eyes are playing me up.
2.What skin type do you have? (combination, dry, oily).
I have combination skin. My cheeks are usually dry and I get a bit oily on my nose and forehead.
3.What is your current facial wash?
I use Soap and Glory Peaches and Clean. I love the smell of it and it leaves my skin tingley clean!
4.Do you exfoliate?
I do sometimes. Not often as my skin can be sensitive, but I use superdrugs botanical microdermabrasion exfoliator.
5.What moisturiser do you use?
I try to keep it simple really. I do use Simple's facial moisturiser either the normal one or the anti aging one. It just depends what I grab!
6.Do you have freckles?
Yes just across my nose. They don't bother me at all. I know most people either love or hate their freckles! They are a very marmite topic!
7.Do you use eye cream?
Yepp I do. Right now again it is simple's eye cream. I did have clinique all about the eyes but I ran out a few days ago, and can't afford to replace it!

I don't wear foundation daily but right now my favorites are rimmel match perfection and Revlon colourstay.
11.How about concealer?
Yes I love benefit fake up and also healthy mix.
12.Do you know your undertone color?
I think it is pink toned whenever I use something that looks obviously yellow I look a bit grey and sick!

I think they look beautiful on other people but just not me! I have quite long lashes anyway so I an lucky!
14.Did you know that you are supposed to change your mascara every 3 months?

My fingers for foundation and concealer and lots of brushes for everything else!

24. How often do you poke your eyes with an eyeliner pencil?Never and if you do maybe you should step away from the pencil liner!

26.Do you use mineral makeup? I do have a mineral foundation but I do not really use it.

29. What is your favorite blush to use? Right now it is seventeen plum something or another! I an pretty sure it is their only plum shade!
30.Do you buy your makeup on ebay?No there are too many fakes! I remember buying mac brushes for not much less then you got in store and what I got was some cheap knock offs! Never again!
31.Do you like drugstore makeup? Yes most of my collection is high street/drugstore. Most of it is filtered down from the more expensive brands and it is all just br good in my opinion. Although I do have a weakness for benefit cosmetics!
32.Do you go to CCO’s? (cosmetic company outlets)I don't think we have any of those where I live but I will get some more expensive stuff from QVC if they are selling it, you can get some pretty good deals Ames even offer interest free payment options at time!
33. Did you ever consider taking make-up classes? At a time yes. I wanted to go back to college and learn makeup and hairdressing because it was what I was interested in at the time. But now I have found my makeup style I don't really want to anymore!
33.Are you clumsy in putting on makeup? Not clumsy but for some reason when doing my eyes I can never get the second side I do to look the same. Does anyone else have that problem?
34.Name a makeup crime that you hate!
There's so many. Lets start with the wrong foundation colour I spotted an assistant trying to sell the completely wrong colour to a girl in superdrug the other day. Its terrible. Or unblended blush. It is not war stripes blend that shit it! And caked on makeup, need I say more.
35. Do you like colorful shades of makeup (lipstick,eyeshadow) or neutral ones? I like neutral eyes right now and bright lips. I do experiment and my favorite lip colour right now is orange!
35.Which celebrity always has great make up?
I like the classic beauty and any pin up kind of makeup. I like to follow and try a lot of things. I think Mila Kunis always looks great though!
36.If you could leave the house using just ONE make up item,what would you use?
Mascara if I only put one makeup item on it is mascara!
37. Could you ever leave the house without any makeup on?
Yes I do quite a lot really. I go to work without it and I don't really feel like I need it. I just use it when I feel like feeling a bit girly!
38. Do you think you look good even without any makeup on?
I am not going to say I am the best looking girl in the world but as I am happy in my own skin I don't need makeup to make of feel better about myself!
39. In your opinion, what is the BEST makeup line?
I love benefit and Revlon I think they both offer great products that everyone needs. I know people may be shocked I have not picked mac but I feel that is more for professionals not your everyday girl like me!
40.What do you think of Makeup?
I love it for how it makes me feel when I wear it. I don't need it for confidence but theres no feeling quite like a nicely applied face of makeup. Especially if you rock a bright lip. Makeup is an expression of who you are.

When I am surrounded with uncertainty in my life I always stop and try to enjoy all the little things I sometimes take for granted. 1. Chill Time. Taking an hour out of life and enjoying a book and hot chocolate, or running a steaming hot bath and tv catch up. Its really important in life to make time for yourself. Whether that is 10mins or an hour it is nice to either forget the world or stop and think your next step.
Sometimes in your life you just have to stop and say 'Is this really what I want?' It gets scary when you say no and decide to make changes. Me and Pawl are going through this right now. Actually me and Pawl went to a uni open day. He wants to study drama or musical theater. He's been in bands and on stage for around 15 years and really wants to explore what he can do. I am all for it. I went to uni and I hated it because I wasn't there because I wanted to be rather just people told me I had to go to uni! But he will be there for the right reasons (considering he gets accepted) and it makes a huge difference if you want to be learning. I never got my degree because I left in my third year! However I have every confidence Pawl will take advantage of the opportunity!
He is so nervous about it all because it means a lot to him. I can't wait for him to get a degree and start making positive a positive change in his life.
For me I really want to start looking into running my own business. I've been chatting to a friend that wants to do this too and we pretty much came up with a business idea and plan within an afternoon. All I've been thinking since is how I want to do it for real. I hate working for other people,well big corporations, and my current job may be putting me into a degree of danger I am not happy with. Especially considering the other things I want in my life! I may be required to work at night in a betting shop and where peoples money is concerned I consider it to be a dangerous thing to do. I've seen people react badly and there are multiple robberies in the industry and sadly even deaths and being by myself is not something I want to do. Especially as I have a family. I have my partner and my stepson and maybe in a year or two my own little one. I know I want my own baby one day but the timing will have to be right. At the moment it is all wrong!
And while I am mumbling and dreaming of what I want with my life a house I actually own would be nice!
What are some of your life dreams?

Models Own are a rather new brand to me. I only owned two, both are neon shades, up until there was a 50% off the entire Models Own website. I decided to try and get a good selection of their offerings, and the velvet goth collection stood out to me. Specifically this purple offering!

I decided that I needed to get some new books in my life. I have stopped reading so much because I didn't have the time. I have been so busy and stressed out that I have not made the time, which has made me a little sad really. I love to read as it relaxes me and calms me down. I defiantly need that calming stage in my life right now! So I took advantage of Asda's 2 for £6 offer and got,
1. Karin Slaughter - Criminal.
I love the Karin Slaughter books. I may have missed one in the series but I do know the characters in this book already so I feel like I will be able to read it and not be too lost with what's going on! I think the books unfold in a great Wayne her writing is easy to follow. This is one of the crime book series I love to follow. The other being by Richard Montinari.
2. Sophie Kinsella - Got Your Number.
The first girly book I read was by Sophie. It was twenties girl and to this day it remains one of my favorite books. So I love to read her books every so often.
3. Lydsey Kelk - I Heart New York.
This is a completely new author to me. I had heard a lot about these books and really wanted to see how I would get on with them. When I saw that this was just £1 I couldn't leave it on the shelf. Its not a huge book and If I like how the story is going I doubt it will take me more then two days to read.
What are your favorite books to read?
Lots of Love
