7 things about me

01. I'm imposing a spending ban on make up until IMATS. 26 days to go. EXCITED!!
02. I am ridiculously impatient when it comes to impending arrival of parcels
03. I have run out of storage for my nail polish. What's a girl with a polish addiction to do about that?
04. I have started a new year skin care routine - let's hope I can stick to it!
05. I'm going to use up all of my hair/skin/body products before buying any more - I could open a small branch of Boots!
06. I have a new positivity vibe going on. And it's working!
07. I tried something new make up wise today and I absolutely love it

There are also 10 questions to answer and Daniela has asked me to answer the following ones. Enjoy :)

1. Why did you create this blog?
I wanted my own little space of t'internet to ramble about things I loved. And here we are one and a half years later!

2. What kind of blog do you follow?
Predominantly make up related blogs, but I follow a fair amount of fashion and nail polish blogs too. I like blogs that are well written (I'm a bit of a grammar nazi!), blogs that flow well, blogs with clear, crisp photos, blogs that inspire me, and of course those with features that interest me.

3. Favorite Makeup Brand
You can't make me choose one! It's not fair :P How about I cheat and have a favourite internet only brand - e.l.f.; a favourite high street brand - Gosh; and a favourite high end brand - MAC.

4. Favorite Clothing Brand
I'm a sucker for Primark - if it's cheap, cheerful and bang on trend nost of the time so that suits me just fine :D

5. Your Indispensable Makeup Product
Yikes. Foundation as it hides all manner of imperfections!

6. Your Favorite Color
Right now, I'm into blue

7. Your Perfume
I've got quite a few on the go, but I'm wearing Boss Orange today.

8. Your Favorite Film
Pretty Woman

9. What country would you like to visit and why?
I'd love to visit the USA just because there are so many places there that I'd like to visit - New York, Chicago, San Francisco, Las Vegas, LA, Florida etc etc. Oh and of course because the make up is cheaper over there ;)

10. Make the last question yourself and answer:- What's you favorite thing about makeup?
Make up can make you feel good about yourself - if I look good, I feel good, and make up helps me achieve that as well as expressing myself :)

Tag time!
