Confessions of a Beauty Blogger Tag

I've seen this tag a lot over the last few weeks and I've finally been tagged by the lovely Lucille. So here we go!

1. How many hours a week do you spend writing/ editing posts?
I spend a couple of hours writing/editing post. I don't have a lot of spare time during the week as I've got school and dance  but after school on Fridays or Saturdays when I'm free is usually when I create my posts.

2. Are you a spender or saver?
I think this varies depending on my mood or where I am. I tend to be a little bit of a spender when online shopping or in Boots. But just general shopping in town I tend to be a saver and stick to the sales.

3. When is it easier for you to blog?
When a great idea pops into my head. When I know exactly what I want to talk about and what I want to write, blogging is easy and comes really naturally. If I'm struggling for an idea, I like to think of it as blogger block, I read other blogs or look on Pinterest for some inspiration.

4. What makes writing behind a computer comfortable for you?
That I can sit on my sofa with my headphones in and just type away.

5. What is your worst makeup/ hair habit?
My worst makeup habit is that I don't use makeup brushes. I don't even own any. I know that's really bad but I really want to invest in some RealTechniques brushes as I've heard they are the best. My worst hit habit is probably the fact I do barely anything to it. In the morning all I do is brush it and then leave for school. I just haven't found anything that works for my hair and I've sort if given up.

6. What is one quote you wish the world lived by?
Gosh, there are so many. My personal favourite is 'A day without laughter is a day wasted'- Charlie Chaplin. I think if everyone can find a reason to smile and forget all the bad in life for just a moment, then the world would be a happier place. 

7. How long do you spend getting ready everyday?
Not very long, half an hour to 45 minutes max. And it probably shows, I'm never happy with how I look.

8. Who's your favourite blogger?
I know this is probably the same for everyone, but my favourite blogger is Zoella. She is one of the sweetest, nicest people on the Internet. She truly deserves all the success she has got.

9. Who is a blogger that you think deserves more subscribers than they have?
This may be a little biased as she is a friend if mine and she tagged me for this tag, but I genuinely think that the wonderful Lucille of Pink Leopard Lipstick deserves way more followers then she currently has. Lucille is a fab blogger and honestly the nicest girl in the world, seriously go check her blog out now.

10. What is one thing that you are excited about in the upcoming year?
Just getting to know everyone at school better. I'm quite shy so haven't really talked to all that many people and this is something I really want to change.

11. What is your most awkward blogging moment?
When I'm out and about for #ootdfridays, I've had people on bikes or just walk by and often stare at me like 'what are you doing?' It can get really awkward sometimes...

12.How long does it take you to prepare a post?
Preparation depends on the type of post. If I'm doing an outfit post, it can take awhile. But if its a tag, there isn't a lot to prepare.

13. Are you wearing trousers right now or jogging pants/ PJ bottoms?
I'm wearing blue skinny jeans from Miss Guided and they are so comfy and flattering.

14. What are you most proud of in life?
Competing in the Dance World Cup in 2009. I think I've mentioned this before in previous posts. It a completely amateur event that was held in Jersey (the Channel Island, not the American State) that year. I got to compete against dancers from all over the world in a group with my friends from my dance school. It was an amazing experience, and even though I know I'm not a gifted dancer and we didn't do all that well, I felt proud to be representing my island.
