The Christmas Tag

I saw this tag on Allthingslaquer‘s blog and although I wasn’t tagged, I decided to do it anyway!

1. When do you start getting excited for Christmas?

My birthday is 26 november and I’ve always held to the fact that christmas should not start until after that! I’m always super excited for my birthday, so I don’t have time to get excited for christmas that before anyways. Continue reading

Blog Tour Award

I was nominated by Claire to do this Blog Tour Award Tag: You should definitely check out her and her blog – it’s really worth a read! The tag is all about telling others about the creative process that you go through.

The Award Rules:

  • Pass the tour on to at least four other bloggers.
  • Give your nominees the rules and specify the Monday in which they should post their nomination answers.
  • Answer the four questions about your creative processes, which allows other bloggers and visitors to understand what inspires you to do what you do.
  • Compose this one-time post on a specific Monday (date TBC by your nominator).

Questions:

1. How does your work differ from others in your genre?

I’m not sure that it does. I mean, beauty-blogs are not very unique in the blogging world. I do try to vary my content so that you can’t anticipate my next post, otherwise I think it would get boring to read if it was just the same content over and over again. That is why I also throw in some post regarding other aspects of my life – to keep it fresh. Also, I think it is important to be honest in your reviews. That way other people will find you more reliable and come back for your other reviews.

2. How does your writing/creative process work?

If I want to write about lifestyle or movies or music or whatever the inspiration usually comes in my everyday life. Posts like that are often personal, so it’s natural to have the inspiration come to you as you go about your day. If I want to write about beauty, the content is usually determined by which products I’ve bought or tested out. Overall, I spend a lot of time in the blogging world, on YouTube, Pinterest etc. and I find that I often get my ideas through there.

3. Why do you write or create what you do?

To show people. A lot of my content, at least when I first started out, is nail art related and there are only so many times that my boyfriend can find it interesting to see my new creations, so it is nice to have an outlet where people express their opinion about what I’ve come up with. I’ve recently noticed that there is a much bigger interest in my beauty related posts than in anything else I write about, which is great since my the majority of my posts are about that, but the blog is still also an outlet to me, a place where I share my thoughts and though it’s a little demotivating not to have your posts received as positively as you’d hoped, I still want the blog to show other aspects of my personality.

4. What are you working on at the moment?

I have a collab coming up in July that I’m preparing for now because once I start working I won’t have that much time or energy. Apart from that I don’t really have anything “cooking”. I usually just write about what I feel like on a particular day. That is also why I don’t want to have a posting schedule – some weeks I have tons of ideas for posts and others I can hardly think of one, and I think, for me, it would be too forced if I had to produce an amount of posts each week.

Nominations:

The Twilight Tag

As I’ve mentioned before, I’ve just been re-reading the Twilight saga after the last two films where on TV – and then I found this tag – what great timing! If you’re totally against Twilight, now is the time to stop reading, but if you’re like me and you’re not afraid to indulge your teenage/need-for-cheesy-romance-side, then you’ve probably read the books as well and is nominated to do this as well.  Here are my thoughts!

THE QUESTIONS:
1. Which book in the series is your favorite?
The first one – mostly the first half. I’m a big sucker for romance and I thought the story of them falling in love is very sweet. 
2. How long did it take you to read the books?

Ultimate book-tag

My friend, Camilla, tagged me to do this Ultimate book-tag. Here is a link to hers, if you want to read that as well. I don’t usually do posts about books, but I’m actually a big reader and I thought this would be fun to do!

Would you rather – tag

Would you rather walk around all day with you skirt tucked in your underwear or be seen wearing a really see through dress?
Shirt tucked in. Ugh, the thought of people seeing my underwear unintentionally.

Would you rather go to a party and not realize until the end of the night that you have lipstick on your teeth or that your fake lashes are coming unglued?

Hm. Fake eyelashes unglued. It’s something you see quite often at the end of the night, and I smile a lot at parties, so it would be too noticeable.

Would you rather forget to put mascara on one eye or forget blush on one side of your face?

Forget blush. Hot weather, cold weather, embarrassing moments, alcohol, whatever, and my cheeks are burning red.

Would you rather wear lipstick/lipliner combo or frosty blue eyeshadow?

The lips. I’m not too much into eyeshadow anymore actually..

Would you rather wear foundation that is two shades too light or go way overboard on bronzer?

Too light. If that’s even possible to buy 😀 My skin is quite fair already.

Would you rather drink an entire bottle of ketchup or run into the guy who broke your heart on a bad hair day when your skin is freaking out?

Uuuuh, tough one. Run in to the guy who broke my heart. He dumped when I looked my best, so I can’t really please him anyway, right?

Would you rather be able to date any celeb you wanted or wake up with perfect red carpet-worthy hair?

Had I been single I would have gone with the celeb, but I’m not, so I’ll have to choose the hair.

Would you rather your armpits smell musky or like delicious lasagna?

Lasagna. It would be weird, but delicious 😀

Would you rather give up your makeup or cell phone for one year?

My make-up. I’m not really a phone addict, but it’s nice to have. And you would just get used to the no-makeup-look.

Would you rather run into a cute guy you like with food all in your grill or no makeup at all?

No make-up. At least that shows intentionality.

20 random questions – tag

1.Thing you cannot leave the house without?

My iPod! How else would I entertain myself on the go?

2.Favorite brand of makeup?

Hm. I don’t really have an all-time favorite, but I really like L’Oréal’s mascaras and Body Shop’s eyeliner.

3.Favorite Flowers?

Which ever I’m lucky enough to get 😀

4.Favorite clothing stores?

H&M. Cheap, but pretty. And they have a big selection and something for every taste.

5.Favorite perfume?

Right now it’s Christina Aguilera – Red Sin.

6.Heels or flats?

I have an obsession with very high heels and I own too many pairs! But since my ex-boyfriend was only a couple of centimeters taller than me, he didn’t like it when I wore 10 cm heels, so I stopped. My boyfriend is 2.04 m, so I’ve been wanting to get into it again, but it has just been too long. My feet hurt after 10 seconds and I just end up in flats 😦

7.Do you make good grades?

Decent. I’m sort of an average-person (maybe a little above). I do pretty well overall, but I don’t have a subject where I excel.

8.Favorite colors?

Bordeaux. And Teal. It changes often, sometimes even day-to-day. But these two are always pretty!

9.Do you drink energy drinks?

No. They do anything for me, and frankly they just taste like nothing but sugar.
10.Do you drink juice?

Sometimes apple juice. Pineapple juice when on holiday because I have yet to find a good pineapple juice in Denmark. I only drink orange juice without pulp. And only if nothing else is available.

11.Do you like swimming?

I used to. When I was younger my parents couldn’t get me out of the water when on holiday. Now I’ve gotten afraid of sea weed, so only in the pool and only to cool off from the sun.

12.Do you eat fries with a fork?

No. Too hard.

13.Whats your favorite moisturizer?

The one I have in my cupboard. Which is probably the cheapest.

14.Do you want to get married later on in life?

YES! Maybe I’m old-fashioned, but marriage before kids (unless they are accidental).

15.Do you get mad easily?

hm.. no?.. not at al….. Okay, yes. My boyfriend takes all the hits. But often it quickly surpasses and I’m pretty good at apologizing later if the anger wasn’t justified.

16.Are you into ghost hunting?

I’m too scared. Yes, I watched all five seasons of Ghost Whisperer, and I’m still afraid of passing mirrors at night…

17.Any phobias?

Drowning. I haven’t watched Titanic and probably never will. Why I thought I could would ‘Life of Pi’ I’ll never know. “What, a movie about a boy stranded on a boat, how could that possibly be about water?”. I always look away when there’s something with people almost-drowning on TV. Once I was playing a game on PS3 and my boyfriend had to take over in a part about escaping water while I sat in the next room.

18.Do you bite your nails?

Nope.

19.Have you ever had a near death experience?

Some that have felt like it, but looking back I was never even close. Drama queen, much?

20.Do you drink coffee?

If I have to. But it don’t clap my hands in joy when someone asks if I want some coffee.
