Tag | The beauty blogger

Hey everyone! Hope you all had a lovely week!
I've been loving tags at the moment; tags are always a great way to learn more about the blogger! Im planning to do non-tag post next week, if there's anything you'd like to see, let me know in the comments!

1. Is your hair naturally curly or straight?
My hair are naturally curly. 

2. What is your natural hair colour?
I'm a brunette

3. Do you dye it yourself or go to a salon?
Go to a salon.

4. How often do you wash your hair?
Normally, every 2-3 days.

5. Do you wear the same style every day or change it?
Most days, I wear the same styles... but I need to try new things. Pinterest has too many pretty style to have the same look everyday!

6. Do you do your own mani/pedi or go to a salon?
Most of the times, I paint my nails. But I like to go to a salon from time to time :)

7. How often do you change your nail polish?
Sometimes, I change it after 3 days. Other times, after 2 weeks... there's no inbetween ahah!

8. Do you polish your toes in the winter, too or just in the summer?
Sometimes I do it in the winter too. But most of the time, I do it mostly in the Summer!

9. How long does it take to put on your makeup?
It depends, when I'm working I don't have that much time, so probably 10-15 minutes. But when I have the chance I like to try new things, and when I'm going out it takes longer as well.

10. What do you do first? Face or eyes?

11. Do you "collect" makeup or just buy what you need when you need it?
When you're a beauty blogger it's hard to just buy what you need. Some things (mascara, foundation, face powder), most of the time I will buy them only when I need them. So I would say its a mix haha!

12. How often do you wear false eyelashes?
Not often, most of times it's just for nights out or events.

13. Do you do a full face of makeup every day?
Not when I have no where to go.

14. Do you wear makeup when you are home alone (or with family)?
Unless I'm going somewhere.

15. Will you leave the house without makeup?
Probably not.

16. How many high end products do you have?
A lot haha!

17. How often do you wash your makeup brushes?
Not enough.

18. Do you plan your OOTD every night or decide when you are getting dressed?
Sometimes I plan. Sometimes I don't.

19. How often do you change your handbag?
I have a few everyday bags that I change from time to time. I have smaller ones for when I go out or travelling.

20. What time do you get up & go to sleep?
It's never the same. Most of the time it depends on if I'm working or not, or have early plans. If I don't have to be up early, I'll go to bed late, probably.

21. How often & when do you workout?
Not often as I should. I would like to workout like 4-5 times a week. Life gets in the way and most of the time I only get to workout 1-2 a weeks... oh well, it's a start, right?

22. Left-handed or Right-handed?

23. How tall are you?

24. Do you speak a foreign language?

25. How many pets do you have?
A dog.

26. How often are you on Blogger?
Probably like 3-4 days a week to read & write. But I check it everyday for my stats, comments and stuff like that :)

27. Do you read the comments posted on blogs?

28. Do you keep a list of products to try as you see other posts?

29. How did you come up with your blog name?
It's lyrics from a song. Mason Musso - A girl like you. I had the lyrics ''Sparkle This City'' on my bedroom wall throughout my teen years haha (3 years ago - what? haha)

30. What kind of camera do you use for photographs?
My iPhone or my Canon

31. How often do you clean your house? (Daily, weekly, other)
A few times a week.

Being inspired = Being happy

To me, being inspired = being happy. Why you may ask?! Well, if you're inspired in your daily life, you will be more organized, more inspired to work, you'll have more free time to do things you love, inspired to exercise & feel better, cook & eat healthy food, discover new things you like & that can lead to meeting new people, etc...

In life, to be more productive, you have to do something everyday your future self will thank you for later. When you're inspired it will be way easier to make those small step and stay positive in life.

Us, bloggers, as being creatives, our mind is always thinking of something new, need to know new things constantly & always creating content. But if you're not inspired it can be hard to be happy doing so...

With social media it is easy to be easily inspired or easily overwhelmed. You can be inspired just by staying at home... Here's a few tips and tricks for you people...

Music. A big one for me, music is something that will put me in a good mood, which I will feel inspired afterward. I'm pretty much listening to music all time: working on the blog (right now), driving, travelling, getting ready, cleaning, cooking, tanning... the list goes on. There is so much music left to be discovered which makes me happy and kinda scared.

Discovering. As I said theres so many new songs you have never heard which is kinda overwhelming right? But what also makes me happy is when I re-listen to old bands I used to adore and they made new songs. (like The Sheepdogs)

  Also, discovering new things: new restaurants, trying new things, finding a tv show you like, a new blog, a cool Instagram...
  Trying new hair styles (lately I've tried the half bun, which I actually really like on me), trying new makeup looks and having people complimenting you on it.

Meeting new people. Meeting new people is great, but when you have similar interests and feel like you could easily become best friend with someone, it's the best feeling.

Social media. In this day and age, social media is a big part of our life. In general, it is very inspiring to look through an amazing Instagram & get inspired from it... Learn new things on Twitter... Wanting to do a recipe on Pinterest...

Going outside. The nature is a beautiful place to be inspired. Take daily walks in the nature and see how much better you'll feel after a few days.

Read. Read, read, read. Learn new things. Learn about things that's even out of your interest. Read to learn new things.

Creating. Write, paint, draw, do that DIY on Pinterest. Take time to create something.

Hope you enjoyed this somewhat different kind of post. Let me know what makes you inspired & happy! X

Current Essentials

Hi everyone! Hope you're all having a great summer! Today I will be talking to you about the products I feel like I NEED in my life! haha!

First off, Urban Decay Naked Basics / I adore this multi tasking palette. I'm a big fan of Urban Decay's Naked line. I can use this palette for a daily eye (& night) makeup look, for my eyebrows I use faint, for my under eye I can use foxy and as a liner I can use crave. Need I say more why it's an essential?!

NYX butter gloss / Those two colors are super natural and easy to apply on the go. I love the soft non-sticky texture of these. It feels more like a balm, but looks glossy like lipgloss. They are pigmented enough while remaining natural. They have a great smell as well.

Maybelline Color tattoo in Bad to the bronze / I love this long-lasting bronzey cream shadow. I love using this as an everyday eyeshadow. Whenever you're in a rush, you just need to use this and it will look as if you spent alot of time on your eyeshadow look.

Rimmel Stay Matte Pressed Powder / I use this powder everyday - it works wonder. For the low price, I can't complain. Specially for the summer, it controls shine.

MAC pro longwear paintpot in Bare Study / This a staple for many people, a pretty beige champagne eyeshadow cream. Easy to work with, just apply it all over your lid and a light brown in the crease and you're ready to go.

MAC blush in Gingerly / This blush is great for the summer - it can act as a blush and a bronzer. Super easy and quick to use.

Benefit Gimme Brow fiber gel / This brow fiber gel is great. Helps your brows stay in place and look more volumised.

Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer Potion / This product is one of my all time must have product. Whenever I wear eyeshadow I need my primer potion, otherwise my eyeshadow will crease. This will make your eyeshadow creaseless and make the color appear more vibrant!
