It’s Friiiiday *happy dance*
Have you’s all had a fab week? I sure hope so! It’s been a busy one here with Em’s back to school, hubby off to work and little ole me back to the writing grindstone. Not that I’m complaining of course, being able to do what I love is such a blessing but it’s nice to switch off come the weekend, we all need a little time to recharge the batteries, spend time with the clan and just generally pamper ourselves right?
Oooh, talking of pampering oneself… hugggeee thanks to the lovely Melissa over at www.melissaclaireleslie.com for thoughtfully nominating moi to take part in the fun filled This Or That? Beauty Edition Tag.
So without further ado, time to roll up my sleeves and jump right in…
Blush or Bronzer?
Okay, already I’m stumped and it’s only the first question *rolls eyes* I’ve always loved a little light pink glow but recently I’ve been uping my contouring game so I’d have to say bronzer. It seems to be suiting my skin tone much better this weather!
Lipgloss or Lipstick?
Arrrgh. Erm. Lipstick. Nooo – gloss. Wait!! Hmm. Okay, stick with gloss…
Eyeliner or Mascara?
Oh for heavens sake, that’s not even fair. Even though I adore my liquid liner I’d have to go with Mascara, it just adds that finished look.
Foundation or Concealer?
Hands down foundation.
Neutral or Colour Eyeshadow?
Even though I love a pop of colour I’m instantly drawn to soft neutral shades for everyday wear so I’d have to go with neutral!
Brushes or Sponges?
Brushes. Sponges just don’t do it for me – sorry Beauty Blender lovers!
OPI or China Glaze?
I’ve yet to try China Glaze so I’m sticking with good old OPI.
Long or Short?
Definitely short. I’ve never actually been a fan of long nails, I think short is much more elegant and practically – I couldn’t write all day with a set of talons… well I could but most of it would be unreadable.
Acrylic or Natural?
Natural. Any acrylic nail extensions I’ve worn in the past has always ended up damaging my nail bed. Last time it took months to repair *sigh*
Brights or Darks?
Brights, I love baby pinks, bright corals, fuschia, lilac. Pretty much anything girly and sweet will catch my eye and tends to suit my skin tone so much better.
Perfume or Body Spray?
Perfume – and before you ask Miss Dior thank you very much *swwwoooon*
Lotion or Body Butter?
Lotion, every time.
Body Wash or Soap?
I’d have to go with a highly moisturising body wash, soap leaves my skin really tight, blotchy and feeling like it’s on fire.
Lush or Other Bath Store?
Considering I haven’t yet tried Lush *gasps of shock* I’d have to go with other bath store… namely The Body Shop, I adore their range of yummy products that smell good enough to eat. NOM!
Jeans or Sweatpants?
Jeans Dahhhling. Having said that Friday night is sweatpants night 😉
Long Sleeved or Short?
Oh heck long – really not a fan of exposing my pale and portly arms thank you very much!
Dresses or Skirts?
Hmmm, I’d probably say skirts. I’ve had quite a few really long denim skirts in the past that have look amazing with boots in the winter and equally gorgeous with sandals in the summer.
Stripes or Plaid?
Stripes, so pretty!
Flip Flops or Sandals?
Although I wear both I’d have to say there’s nothing comfier than a really good pair pf pretty little sandals.
Scarves or Hats?
SCARVESSSS!!! I’m rarely spotted without one!
Studs or Dangly Earrings?
Oooh, my fav pair of owl earrings are dangly but I love studs *hmmm* Lets go with studs, just because.
Necklaces or Bracelets?
Braclets. I actually own very few necklaces however I never take my Pandora charm off my wrist… sleeping, showering, swimming… it’s always there. I know, the people at Pandora wouldn’t be impressed with my continuous wear but I just don’t see the point of having such a beautiful piece of sentimental jewellery and keeping it stashed away. Life’s too short & all that!
Curly or Straight?
I’m rocking my natural curls this weather, so definitely curly!
Bun or Ponytail?
I’ve always thought a little messy bun was quite cute. Yep, bun.
Long or Short?
Light or Dark?
I’ll stick with my natural colour and go with Dark.
Side Swept or Full Bangs?
Side swept, it’s a classic.
Up or Down?
Always down, very rarely up.
