Lifestyle || The Girl Behind The Blog

Thought it was time for more of a personal post, get to know me a bit more with these questions which I have tried my best to answer. I was going to do a facts about me, but it turns out I can't think of that many facts...

1. What is your natural hair colour? 
Dark brown, I have only every dyed the ends of my hair so the majority of my hair is my natural colour.
2. Is your hair naturally curly or straight?
 Curly or wavy, it changes daily but mainly turns into a massive ball of frizz.
3. Do you colour it yourself or get it done at a salon? 
I've only dyed it once, and I did it myself at school so my mum couldn't stop me. not recommended.
4. Do you style your hair the same everyday or do you change it? 
Change it up, mostly but it depends what mood my hair is in. normally I go for a half up half down kinda style but let me know if you want some posts on hair styling.
5. Do you do your own mani/pedi or go to a salon? 
I literally have no nails, I am trying to grow them and over Christmas I did so well but since then I seem to have bitten them off so I would do it myself but its not something that happens very often.
6. How often do you change your nail polish? 
If I do have them painted I like to change it all the time, if I keep it looking perfect then it stops me biting them but I do tend to pick at nail polish so I often ending up painting them all the time.
7. Do you polish your toes in the winter or just summer? 
Whenever I can be bothered, I tend to paint them and then just forget about them but I think they look so much nicer with polish on them.
8. How long does it take you to apply your makeup?
 Around half hour to an hour, depending on where I'm going I can cut this down though depends on the situation. I love to take loads of time over it if I can because I really enjoy doing it.
9. What do you do first eyes or face? 
Normally face, but if I'm doing a dark look my eyes
10. Do you collect makeup or just buy what you need when you need it?
Collect with a capital C, I own so much more than I need but I love my makeup and wouldn't want to spend my money on anything else.
11. How often do you wear false lashes?
Not that often but I really wish I wore them more often.
12. Do you do a full face of makeup everyday? 
Most days, but sometimes on the weekend I just can't be bothered and its nice to have a break.

Yes, I don't have to wear it. I just like to wear it.

I don't know an exact number but I own more drugstore than highend even though I do love to splurge on makeup.

When I'm getting dressed, there is no way I am that organised.
