Get To Know Me: The Beauty Blogger Tag

I’ve seen this tag done by many bloggers, so with a small nudge from Chicandpolished, who recently did it herself, I give you my version!

1. Is your hair naturally curly or straight?
Straight, for the most part, and stubborn.
2. Do you dye it yourself or go to a salon?
It’s naturally black, and I like it natural! Of course, I have no white hairs yet…
3. Do you wear the same style everyday, or do you change it?
I’m currently a SAHM so I usually do a twist or a ponytail, otherwise it’s getting yanked! I have gotten baby puke in my hair once when it wasn’t pulled back. I didn’t realize, it dried there, and it was just gross all-round! Generally, though, I like it down or in a half-pony.
4. Do you do your own mani/pedi or go to a salon?
I do them myself. I don’t like strangers touching me, so even haircuts and dental work are kind of trying for me. I am neglectful of my pedi in winter, but will give myself one this weekend to kick off the nice summer weather we’re finally getting.

5. How often do you change your nail polish?
When I’m not swatching, 1-2x a week for a mani. For pedis, rarely in winter and maybe 1-2x a month in summer.
6. Do you polish your toes in the winter or just the summer?
I usually do in winter (haven’t the last two, though).
7. How long does it take for you to put on makeup?
10–15 minutes. Depends on whether my skin is being cooperative, and whether I’ve decided to curl lashes and wear mascara.
8. What do you do first? Face or eyes?
Face by habit, though I think it probably makes more sense to do eyes first!
9. Do you collect makeup or just buy what you need when you need it?

10. How often do you wear false eyelashes?
11. Do you do a full face of makeup everyday?
Yes, but only if I’m going out, or expecting anyone apart from family to see me. I used to suffer from cystic acne, so my skin is still getting over that.
12. Do you wear makeup when you’re home alone or with family?
Maybe some concealer for a zit, but no, I don’t feel the need to put on makeup with family.
13. Will you leave the house without makeup?
I will if I need to, but that hasn’t happened yet.
14. How many high-end products do you have?
Some, but I have more mid-end stuff. With nail polish, it’s mostly salon brands (Essie, OPI, China Glaze, Zoya—which I class as mid-end).
15. Do you plan your OOTD every night or decide when you’re getting dressed?
I wear almost the same thing every day. Hahahaha! No, I’m not a planner for my outfits, unless it’s for an event.
16. How often do you change your handbag?
Quite often! I have a lot of bags, so I like to get around to as many as possible. I keep two makeup bags so I can just swap that in and out along with my keys, wallet, and phone. Shoulder/crossbody bags are my favorite style.Rachel Nasvik Phoebe handbag
17. What time do you wake up and go to sleep?
All over the place. I try to go for sleeping and waking early (with a baby, you don’t usually have a choice!), though I am by nature a night owl.
18. How often or when do you workout?
I don’t and that’s so bad! I do try to walk as much as I can, but the work I do requires a lot of sitting at a desk. It’s definitely something I need to work on.
19. Left handed or right handed?
So right-handed that I can’t eat Continental-style, for fear of jabbing my eye out with a fork. American-style FTW.American- vs Continental-Style Dining
20. How tall are you?
5’0″. Get it?! *wink wink*
21. Do you speak any foreign languages?
Not fluently. I know a smattering of a couple other languages, like Spanish. Enough to not get lost in an airport and to order food at a restaurant. Not enough to converse with a five year old!
22. How many pets do you have?
I have a tank of tropical fish. Freshwater. Cherry barbs, neon tetras (by DH’s request) and corydoras. I also have a mini tank with some Endlers. I want some more otocinclus and sparkling gourami (used to have them), but haven’t had the chance to hunt them down in the city.

Albino corydoras.
23. How often are you on WordPress?
Just about every day since I started back into blogging.
24. Do you read comments posted on blogs?
Yes! I love to and often do. Definitely on my own blog, and I respond to all.
25. Do you keep a list of products to try as you see other posts?
Yes. It’s terrible for my fun budget!
26. How did you come up with your blog name?
It’s just my handle, which is derived from my height.
27. What kind of camera do you use for your photographs?
Usually a Samsung that my dad gave me.
28. How often do you clean your house?
I try to do little bits here and there. I’m terrible at housekeeping, though.
29. What’s your favorite color?
It used to be red, but I have found myself gravitating to blues and teals in the last few years. I really enjoy most colors, though. I think just about any color can be lovely in the right setting. Even beige.
30. Do you swear?
More than I should. Definitely when watching soccer or reading the news. I am trying my best not to do it around the little peanut, though.
31. What are you doing with the rest of your day?
Cleaning and organizing! Expecting a houseguest next week. Must not dally.

31 questions? That’s weird.

Please let me know if you decide to do this tag! I’d love to read it! Have a great weekend, everyone!

  1. I’m scared of the day when I get grey hairs. Against my dark hair, they’ll be really visible!
    EW baby puke in hair. Oh whey did I read this right after I ate lunch?
    I can’t un-know the knowledge that you don’t polish your toes! So shattered…
    HAHAHA love the picture of the Collector!
    As a kid we had a fish tank – I was quite traumatized by the big fish eating the little fish.
    Yay, I get the 5’0″ reference! Hey, no hating on beige!
    Just wait until the little peanut becomes a little parrot! I’ve had to watch my potty mouth around other people’s babies lol…
