Tag! You're It.


Thank you to Mel from Mirror on the Wall for tagging me to be "it"! I found it really interesting to read the answers in her tag and as it seems like a great way to get to know other bloggers a bit more, I thought I would give this a go.

The rules are:
1. Answer the 11 questions set.
2. Set 11 questions for the people you tag.
3. Mention the blog who tagged you.

Here are my answers to Mel's questions!

1. What  are your morning and evening skincare routines?
In the morning I give my skin a very quick cleanse using Dermalogica Dermal Clay Cleanser. I then apply Dermalogica Special Clearing Booster to existing spots and moisturise with Dermalogica Active Moist. I also apply an eye cream, at the moment I'm using a sample of Origins GinZing, which has a brightening effect. At night I double cleanse with the same cleanser- the first time removes surface makeup/dirt and so the second cleanse really gets into your skin and pores. I then apply Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair serum and let this sink in for two or three minutes. I've only been using it a few weeks but I really like it so far - it's hydrating yet seems great at reducing and healing spots! I use the Advanced Night Repair eye cream too. I then finish by moisturising.

2. What's your favourite skincare product and why?
 This is a hard one, as I've started using quite a few different products recently and am still making a judgement on them. Out of the rest, I think I would have to say either the Dermalogica Dermal Clay Cleanser as it's great at cleansing and balancing out my oily skin, or the Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair Eye as it's the only eye cream that's really made a noticeable difference to the texture, hydration and darkness under my eyes.

3. Name three products you just couldn't live without.
Makeup wise, I couldn't live without foundation, concealer and mascara. Oh and lip balm. But that's four... Oops!

4. What do you enjoy doing besides blogging?
I love spending time with my family, friends and boyfriend and taking my puppy Daisy for long walks. I tend to drive everywhere, so it's nice to get out in the fresh air and go somewhere quiet. I like a good shopping session too when I can afford it!!

5. What are your ambitions in life?
 Ultimately to be happy. I'd love to find my dream job (I'm still trying to work out what this is!) and not have to worry financially. I'm not very well travelled, but I'd love to get out and see more of the world - Italy, Mexico, New York, Australia... and more! I would like to get married to my boyfriend and maybe children. I'm definitely not feeling broody yet!

6. What do you hope 2013 will bring?
I hope that in 2013 I'll work out what to do career wise! I'm considering studying again part time in something beauty related, so we'll see!

7. What's on your wishlist at the moment?
Where do I start!! The Real Techniques Stippling Brush, Topshop Highlighter in Crescent Moon, Urban Decay Naked Palette, some MAC lippies and eyeshadows (I really want to start one of those pro palettes) and some American products such as Wet n Wild eyeshadows, Maybelline Baby Lips and Covergirl Lash Blast mascara.

8. What is your favourite high-street shop?
Boots is a great all rounder for makeup, skincare, bath and hair products! I could spend a lot of money in Boots! Plus they always have offers on, like 3 for 2 on makeup or No7 vouchers. Clothes wise, I like H&M, Primark and Republic. I think they're all really good value for money and I always find something I like. I just can't afford to spend £45.00 on a jumper from River Island anymore!!

10. What nail polish are you wearing at present?
Nails Inc Bluebell with some snow themed nail art using the Models Own Nail Art Pen in white (see my last post for the NOTD!).

11. What do you do for a living?
I work in an accounts and administration role. It was a role I sort of "fell" into after deciding that university wasn't for me. It's a career/industry with opportunity and a good salary range though.

 The questions I'm setting are:

1. What beauty resolutions have you set yourself for 2013?
2. If you could click your fingers and make one beauty product appear to be yours, what would it be?
3. Tell me one of your favourite makeup tips.
4. If you could raid anyone's makeup bag, famous or not, whose would it be?
5. What's your current favourite skincare brand?
6. Why did you decide to start blogging?
7. Who is your celebrity style crush?
8. If you could eat just one food forever, what would it be?
9. What is your dream job?
10.  What is your favourite film?
11. Tell me one random fact about you - it can be anything!
