Confessions of a Beauty Blogger Tag

1. How many hours a week do you spend writing/editing posts?
It really varies, depending what I'm posting that week. Sometimes I'll reel of a post in a matter of minutes if the mood takes me, but if I'm writing a thorough review or a post that requires some research then I'll put a fair bit of time and effort into it.

2. Are you a spender or a saver?
I seem to have spent my life alternating between the two. As a child I was a sensible saver, and as a teen and when I first hit my twenties I spent every last bit. For the past few years though, I've been quite a good girl and saved up again, but saying that, I've definitely let things slip in the last year or so (since I started blogging, funnily enough). I'm now trying to get back to putting my pennies away carefully, as we are going to be needing them for our move in the summer.

3. When is it easiest for you to blog?
I tend to get more done at the weekends. I much prefer putting posts together when I've got some time to myself, as having the other half around means getting distracted is inevitable. I tend to take most of my pictures on Fridays, and then I'll edit them all and upload them to blank posts ready for me to write them later in the week,

4. What's your worst makeup/hair habit?
Until fairly recently I was awful for brushing my hair too vigorously when wet, and not washing my makeup brushes often enough. However, I've now rectified both of those, so I'd probably say not using base and top coats when I paint my nails (literally going to change that this weekend too though) and bombarding my skin with too many different products, as I can't resist trying out new skincare!

5. What's the one quote that you wish the world could live by?
Treat others as you would like to be treated yourself.

6. How long do you spend getting ready every day?
It depends if I'm washing my hair or not - about half an hour if I'm not (although that includes a quick shower), and about an hour and a half if I am (including drying and straightening my hair). If Im not going anywhere though, I tend to let my hair dry naturally, as it's gota natural wave and is a good chance to avoid heat damage.

7. What's your favourite video on Youtube?
Well these two are pretty hilarious:

But mainly, I really like watching other beauty and fashion bloggers' channels.

8.  Which blogger of whom you are a reader do you think deserves more subscribers than they 
Oh, there are too many to mention, but someone who definitely deserves more followers is WY, who runs Raves 'nd Ramblings. She is such a lovely lady, and really knows her stuff, particularly when it comes to skincare. If you haven't already, do go over and have a read of her blog. You can also find her on Twitter at @wy_hu

9.  Which one thing are you most excited about in the upcoming year?
MOVING HOME!!! Excited is an understatement.

10. What's your most awkward blogging moment?
I can't think of any, but uploading my first Youtube video was definitely a bit of a cringefest! Thankfully I got over that, and now really enjoy it, although the worry is still there as you never know who might be watching!

11. Are you wearing jeans, trousers, pyjamas or a skirt right now?
I'm wearing jeans, as I'm about to go to work and the dress-code is pretty casual but we have to be covered up, and tights in this heat are actually worse than jeans!

12. What are you most proud of in your life right now?
Probably, to be honest, my little blog! I'm also proud of how far my husband and I have come together and what we have achieved.

So there you go! If any of you lovelies fancy doing this tag then consider yourselves tagged!
Thank goodness it's Friday tomorrow!
