Morning Blog Buddies…
Hope you’ve all had a super-awesome week and looking forward to the weekend as much as I am… that Friday feeling has well and truly kicked in already and it’s only 8am.
So, hot of the Confetti & Curves press this morning I have a fun filled TAG as nominated by the lovely Katie over at Plus+ Beauty… it’s The 15 (rather random) Questions Tag. If you haven’t visited Katie’s wonder-blog on all things beautiful then get yourself over & check it out. You’ll love it & her!
I actually had a review for you all this morning but seeing as it’s the weekend, why not let the hair down and have a little fun instead, right?! Are you sitting comfy? Then let’s begin…
1) What do you think you can do but can’t?
As disgracefully vain as it may sound, going a day without make-up is absolute torment for me. I usually try to remind myself ‘I’m not going anywhere, no make-up is required!!’ However I never feel fully functional and ready for the day ahead unless I have my foundation, mascara & a skimming of lippy on at the very least!
2) What’s a difficult word for you to pronounce?
Particularly – I sound like I have a mouth full of marbles every time I attempt to say it. It’s just one of those awkward blundering words that never rolls of my tongue with any hint of grace. Worse still, the more I try to rectify myself verbally the worse it gets… I’m completely over thinking it.
3) What are your favourite TV shows from your childhood?
Without a second thought: Button Moon, HE Man & Rainbow. I’ll even admit to having a bit of a crush on Zippy in my youngster years… I was clearly into the cheeky chappies 😉
(Ooh, what a puppet!)
4) What are your virtues and vices?
I’d say my biggest virtue is compassion for others. If I can help someone out I’ll do everything I can to go the extra mile and make it happen. On the other hand my biggest vice would be impatience… I don’t do waiting. At all. If something needs doing I prefer it done yesterday, otherwise I get seriously grumpy! *Grrrrr*
5) What’s more important: love, fame, power, or money?
Has anyone ever answered this question with anything other than ‘Love’?! Most definitely LOVE.
6) If you could live in any era/time period, when would it be and why?
Without a shadow of a doubt I’d be rockin’ round the clock in the 1950’s… the hairstyles, the clothes the huuuuuuge American cars. In my opinion women looked incredible. So beautifully feminine and classically curvy. Makes me wanna whip out a multi-layered petticoat, Grease soundtrack, pink lippy & hairspray! Amazing.
7) If you had to redo your entire wardrobe with 2 stores, what would they be and why?
Hmm, well being a plus size girl I’m pretty limited to choice here… however I am rather taken by the selection of threads available from Simply Be and ASOS. I’m sure I could do some retail damage given the chance and a cheque book 😉
8) Can you recall what you were doing a year ago on this day?
Huni, I can’t recall what I was doing yesterday let alone a year ago… given a guess I’d say the same as today: writing, writing and more writing.
9) Do you have reoccurring dreams? If so, explain?
A few years ago I had a horrid recurring dream that always involved me standing on a random shoreline as a huge Tsunami came rushing towards me from the horizon. I felt so small standing there just waiting on the wall of water to hit, I knew there was no point running from it – it was like facing death over and over again. However, at the time I was studying for a qualification in Counselling so I firmly believe it helped me face a few things that were completely overwhelming me in real life… once those ‘real life’ fears were put to rest my recurring dream stopped as quickly as it started.
10) What’s your horoscope?
Cancer… I’m a nippy little water lover who adores living beside the sea.
11) What does your dream bedroom look like?
Warm! I cannot abide cold, stark, minimalistic rooms – I will never feel warm and at ease in a bedroom that is decorated in cool tones. I’m all about soft fluffy carpets, heavy drapes, warm ivory walls with rich raspberry accents and a scattering of metallic mocha shades… now that would make my homely little heart flutter with delight. There’s nothing as inviting as a huge puffy bed with masses of pillows to sink down, a dressing table neatly arranged with my favourite lotions and potions, and of course an exquisite bedside table proudly displaying a fully charged kindle. Oh, and candles… as far as the eye could see. Sheer bliss.
12) What position do you sleep in?
In the most bizarre of shapes imaginable. I’ve always been a bit of an oddity when it comes to sleeping habits. Hmm, not even sure if I can describe my slumber-style but here goes:
On my tummy, one leg up and out of the duvet whilst hugging a pillow that’s doubled over – otherwise I literally feel like I’m slowly suffocating. *grasps neck of jumper at the mere thought*
Okay, I’m predicting you’re screwing your pretty little face up thinking ‘what a frickin weirdo’ –and you’d be right. Apologies for melting your mind with such a disturbing vision *face palm*
13) What are your all time favorite films?
I’m so relieved this is a plural question otherwise it would have been impossible… okay, get comfy for a weird mixture of tastes… GoodFella’s, SATC, The Notebook, Snatch, Working Girl, Pretty Woman, Forrest Gump, Dead Man Walking, Planes Trains & Automobiles, Philadelphia, 10 Things I Hate About You, You’ve Got Mail, The Passion, BIG, The Vow, The Aristocats, Despicable Me (had to have a few kiddies ones – they’re timeless)
Ps: The list goes on and on and on…
14) What makeup are you currently wearing?
Rimmel Stay Matte Primer
Rimmel Lasting Finish 25 HR Foundation
Rimmel Wake Me Up Concealer
Rimmel Pop of Pink Crème blush
Urban Decay Primer
Urband Decay Naked 3 Eyeshadow
Rimmel Scandaleyes Mascara
W3 Naked Brow Shadow
Maybelline Baby Lips Lip Balm – Cherry

15) Do you have neat handwriting? Show us!
If I really try it’s not too bad, however most of the time it looks like hieroglyphics.
Here it is in the flesh…
