Halloween Tag.

I'm back with a fun Halloween tag I found online. I've spent my evening carving a pumpkin for a competition at work tomorrow and eating sweets so felt this is totally appropriate.

1. What is your favorite Halloween movie?
I love Practical Magic. I'm not a huge fan of scary films but do have a fondness for the Scary Movie films even if everyone else hates them.

2. 1-10, how much do you enjoy Halloween?
10. It's the only day adults get to play dress up. Please it means 2 days until my birthday!

3. What is your fondest Halloween memory?
Trick and treating with my sister when we were kids. We used to go out all dressed up then get back and bargain with each other to swap the sweets we didn't like. 

4. Have you always been a Halloween lover?
Yes, my parents aren't all that into it but they always took us out until we were old enough to go on our own.

5. How do you get into the Halloween spirit? 
I think a good party always gets me ready and seeing toffee apples in the shops!

6. Favorite Halloween decorations?
Pumpkins are the best!

7. Favorite halloween/fall scent?
I love the smell of caramel around this time of year.

8. Favorite candy?
Toffee Apples or Honeycomb at this time of year.

9. Vampires or zombies?

10. What is your weird/odd fear?
I'm very scared of crabs and have a fear of pure cotton wool touching me. It makes my skin crawl.

11. Last but not least, do you believe in ghosts?
Yes and I believe I've seen one too. 

If anyone wants to take part in this let me know as I would love to read your answers! I'm being very boring as I have lots of plans this weekend so am actually just getting my nails done on Halloween. Sorry how old am I?

Beauty Blogger Tag

I've seen this tag float around and definitely wanted to put my stamp on it. I hope you enjoy it!

1. Is your hair naturally curly or straight?
Up until 16 it was messy ball of fluff. Then I got it relaxed so it blow dries straight but after nearly 7 it is a bit of frizzy mess still. 

2. What is your natural hair colour?

3. Do you dye it yourself or go to a salon?
When I went blonder I went to the salon as I wanted it done properly and carried this on until about July but now Autumn is here I grabbed a DIY jobby and dyed it dark brown at home.

4. How often do you wash your hair?
My hair never goes greasy so twice a week. 

5. Do you wear the same style every day or change it?
I wear it up in bun a lot as I am trying to not put heat on it lately. I only really wear it down on the days it's washed. 

6. Do you do your own mai/pedi or go to a salon?
I always do my own toes as I have extremely ticklish feet so couldn't stand someone else doing them. I do my nails myself unless I go away or have a special occasion; then I go for a gel polish.

7. How often do you change your nail polish?

At least weekly. I love redoing my nails and chipped nail polish is a crime in my books.

8. Do you polish your toes in the winter, or just in the summer?
I don't think my toes have been without polish in over 2 years. I hate my feet without polish. 

9. How long does it take you to put your make up on?

If I have work in the morning, 5 minutes. For a night out or at the weekend about 10. I stick to what I'm good at so it's a breeze.

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

11. Do you "collect" makeup or just buy what you need when you need it?
I will only get the majority of things when I did them, e.g. mascara and concealer but lipstick is my weakness and I have more than I need.

12. How often do you wear false eyelashes?
Just on nights out and even then it's not all the time.

13. Do you do a full face of make up everyday?
I do love make up but as long as my eyebrows are done I'm happy. 

14. Do you wear makeup when you are home alone (or with family)?
I take my makeup off as soon as I get in and only put it on when I have somewhere to go.

15. Will you leave the house without makeup?
Yup, I do it whenever I go to the gym! If I had to pop to the shop I would too!

16. How many high end products do you own?
A couple but not as many as I wish I could have.

17. How often do you wash your makeup brushes?
I have a cleaner spritz but I don't always use it daily. I deeply wash them every 2 weeks. 

18. Do you plan your OOTD every night or decide when you are getting dressed?
When I get dressed I think if you plan your outfits everyday you can look like you're trying too hard and I prefer throwing my looks together on a whim!

19. How often do you change your handbag?
Every season, I usually go for a nice black one from October-April and find a lighter more fun one for the summer. 

20. What time do you get up & go to sleep?
In the week I try to be in bed with the lights, TV and phone off by 11pm and I usually get up between 7-7:30am. I'm really strict with this as a lack of sleep shows instantly on my skin. Weekends I'm not so bothered as I know I can sleep in but I still try to get 8 hours.

21. How often & when do you work out?
I go through phases of being exercise crazy and a complete lazy cow. When I get into the swing of things I usually work out about 5 times a week (even if it's just a quick 20 minute row)!

22. Left handed or right handed?

I'm right handed.

23. How tall are you?
5"10 and apart from loving the long legs, it's the bane of my life. 

24. Do you speak a foreign language?
I can speak enough French to get by ;)

25. How many pets do you have?
None at the moment but I used to have a cat & a hamster.

26. How often are you on Blogger?
Everyday. If I'm not writing, I'm checking out my favourite blogs.

27. Do you read the comments posted on blogs?
I read all my comments and reply to 99% of them. 

28. Do you keep a list of products to try as you see other posts?
I think I keep a mental one but if I actually wrote them down I would probably end up buying more and would then be broke.

29. How did you come up with your blog name?
Well it's my first name and I like to talk about crap.

30. What kind of camera do you use for your photographs?
A mixture between a Canon 600ed, my iPhone 4S and a Fujifilm 6900 DSLR.

31. How often do you clean your house?

Well Mum does the majority but I clean my own room and help out when I can. 

32. What is your favorite color?
Blue is my absolute favourite colour, closely followed by deep pink.

33. What is your favorite beauty/fashion magazine?
Glamour, Cosmopolitan and Company. Sorry but I buy all three and love them all.

34. Do you swear?
I wish I didn't but I do. I don't swear at people but yeah I do.

35. What are you doing with the rest of your day?
In bed nursing a horrible cold and reading a few of my favourite blogs.
