Get to Know me Beauty Tag


1. Is your hair naturally curly or straight?
My hair is Naturally straight, very straight. which I love now but when I was at school I wanted curly hair so much I got a perm! It was terrible because my hair is so straight it never really took! Take it from me it was very bad.

2. Do you dye it yourself or go to a salon?
I go to the hair dressers/salon to have my hair coloured, I don't trust myself to do it I'm way too scared it would come out green or something.

3. Do you wear the same style everyday, or do you change it?
I nearly always wear my hair down as I don't like the way I look with it up, and because of the straight-ness I don't have to do anything to it. Nights out or special occasions or when I can be bothered I will curl it with a curling wand which is how I like it to look, it just takes an age to do it.

4. Do you do your own mani/pedi or go to a salon?
I have only been to have my nails down once for my Sisters wedding, I love painting my nails If I decide I don't like the colour I can change it straight away without it costing me money.

5. How often do you change your nail polish?
I change them at least twice a week unless I'm really loving a colour then I just touch up. Or if it's glitter I will put it off for as long as possible because it's a bitch to get off!

6. Do you polish your toes in the winter or just the summer?
Yes I always keep my toenails painted, but I don't re-do it very often in the winter It tends to be just for me so I sometimes put a really bright colour you would usually wear in the summer for fun or a heavy Glitter that will last ages.

7. How long does it take for you to put on makeup?
It really depends if I'm pushed I can get it done in about 10 mins, but I enjoy putting it on so I like to take my time so in that case I can take 40/45 min from start to finish.
 My every day for work 20 min.

8. What do you do first? Face or eyes?
I always do my face first because for me it's the most important that way if I'm running out of time I can do a very simple eye. I feel like it gives me more options.

9. Do you collect makeup or just buy what you need when you need it?
I am most definitely a collector, and that's due to watching You Tube videos and reading blogs when people like Sprinkle of Glitter, Zoella and Tanya Burr recommend make-up I have to have it. It's an illness LOL.
  
10. How often do you wear false eyelashes?
Never, I can't do them!!! :(

11. Do you do a full face of makeup everyday?
Yes most of the time in fact the only day I don't is Sunday, unless I'm going out.

12. Do you wear makeup when you're home alone or with family?
Not if I'm at home alone unless I'm trying something new out, but if I'm with the Family I do most of the time, there the people I love the most so I want to look good for them even if they don't think its necessary.

13. Will you leave the house without makeup?
I will but I don't like to and I do feel a little uncomfortable I would prefer to have at least a little concealer or BB Cream on.

14. How many high-end products do you have?
I'm not sure, more than I should but less than I want. I have to hear very very good things about high end product before I buy it for example Chanel Tan de Chanel I have wanted it for ages, heard loads of great stuff about it, then Bourjois bought the their Bronzing primer loads of people said it was just as good at the 3rd of the price and they are right it's great. So I'm glad I waited saved myself £20.

15. Do you plan your OOTD every night or decide when you're getting dressed?
Most of the time it is when I get dressed but if I'm doing something special I plan. I wish I planned more it would make the morning panic so much easier to take.

16. How often do you change your handbag?
Fairly often I have a large one for when I'm working I will probably change it once a month. if I'm shopping I like a small cross body bag the changes depending on my outfit! Nights out I like a clutch which again depends on what I'm wearing.

17. What time do you wake up and go to sleep?
I wake up at around 6.45. I try to be in bed no later than 12am week days I try hard for 11pm because I feel better in the morning for that extra hour.

18. How often or when do you workout?
I try to work out at least 3 times a week but I would like to do it 5 times. I can't always be arsed though if I'm honest.

19. Left handed or right handed?
Right.

20. How tall are you?
5,4" / 5,5" 

21. Do you speak any foreign languages?
No apart from the stuff everyone knows I don't. I really wish I could though it's a big regret  that I didn't try harder at school.

22. How many pets do you have?
None

23. How often are you on Blogger?
I am on blogger everyday, mostly reading blogs but I do try to post at least 3 times a week. 

24. Do you read comments posted on blogs?
I do if it is a post I have commented on otherwise I don't really. One of may aims for the future is to comment more I sometimes think they won't read it so whats the point but I love it when people comment on my blog I love there opinions and ideas even if it's different to my own. Plus it gives me great feedback on how I'm doing.

25. Do you keep a list of products to try as you see other posts?
Yes, this is why I have no money!!

26. How did you come up with your blog name?
Well It used to be called 'Love Your Lumps'  and was a plus size fashion blog but because my content changed so much I decided I needed a revamp and at the end of February 2013 it decided to change it, that part was all planned. The name however was inspired by the birth of my Cousins baby girl Henrietta. They asked me to be her Godmother, which I was over the moon about, and when I think of godmothers I think of the Fairy Godmother and she has wings! So it felt like they were giving me my fairy wings. So that's where Given me Wings - Musings of a Fairy Godmother came from. I love it! since then I have been asked to be Godmother a second time by my other cousin for their gorgeous little man called Benjamin so seems even more fitting!

27. What kind of camera do you use for your photographs?
I used my iPad mostly but I also have a Olympus VG-170 which I have started to use a little more.

28. How often do you clean your house?
I tidy up most days because I'm very messy I think I should do it once a week but that rarely happens!

29. What's your favorite color?
Depends what it's for Black to wear otherwise this question is too hard!

30. Do you swear?
Yes too often mostly when I'm alone though!

31. What are you doing with the rest of your day?
Working, I'll probably fit in a little more blogging looking forward to getting home putting my feet up in front of the TV with a glass of Red Wine.
