Beauty Confessions!

Hi lovelies!

I have to confess this wasn't the post I was intending on doing today, but I simply couldn't resist when I saw it over at two of my favourite beauty bloggers (check out Beauty in a Bottle's post here and Glossy Beauty's post here)! Perhaps we'll start a chain?

(Taken from Beauty.ic)

Confession #1

I never wash my make up brushes as often as I intend to. I know I go on about how you should wash them frequently to remove bacteria and product build up (which is totally true, by the way), but somehow it's just really easy for time to fly by! I'm actually feeling a bit stressed out now about the fact that I haven't washed them for a bit!

Confession #2

I never give my nails a 'break' from polish. They're always painted. Period. I do, however, pay special attention to make sure there are no discolourations or growths etc. which might be an indication of a health problem (that's the main reasoning behind giving your nails a break from polish, as paint might cover some problem indicators).

Confession #3

Okay, it's not strictly beauty related, but I don't get enough sleep. I never go to bed on time, and when I do, I find I can't drop off to sleep! I'm a night owl so I find going to bed early very difficult, plus sleeping late just once throws my routine off for the entire week! So I'm pretty much always sleep deprived, and always tired.

Confession #4

I always say you should file your nails in one direction to avoid splitting, but I don't always follow my own advice. I'm quite fortunate in that my nails are quite strong so they can take it!

Confession #5

I don't drink enough water. I do try but drinking 8 glasses is a bit difficult sometimes. I try to drink hot water and hot green tea while at work, which helps a bit.

Confession #6

Again, not strictly beauty related, but I haven't exercised properly (on a regular basis, that is) for about...oh, ten years now. I used to be very fit and played tennis five to six times a week, and then I went the other route and became a complete sloth! It's definitely in the plan for this year though, I just need to find some time amongst my daily routine to fit some in!

Confession #7

I'm hopeless with accessories when it comes to a daily basis. I somehow just don't have time to add cute accessories/handbags/shoes to my routine, it's usually just whatever is handy at the time! I do make more of an effort on weekends but that's something else I'm trying to change this year. I have so many cute things that I miss wearing!

Confession #8

I love all things make up. I'm trying to stop myself from buying more until I've used up some of what I already have, but somehow things seem to my name! I often forget I have certain things, and then I find them in my stash and fall in love all over again!

Confession #9

I haven't let my hair dry naturally in a very long time. It's quite thick so it would take ages to air dry naturally..and even then the inner layers remain damp. So it's just much easier to blast it with a hair dryer and go on with my life.

Confession #10

I'm not as good with home pampering treatments as I'd like. It's been far too long since I last popped a deep conditioning mask on my hair, or put a clay mask on my face! Somehow I always plan to do it later and then forget.

Confession #11

Similar to Beauty in a Bottle, I refuse to frequent stores where I have been given bad customer service. I don't care how wonderful your products are but if you can't spare a smile or even just answer my questions, I'm out of there. That sums up why I haven't bought MAC products for the past ten years.

Confession #12

I don't eat enough fruit and veggies. I always mean to and then somehow, I end up skipping it! It's something else I've been making a concerted effort to improve on this year, though!

There you have it, lovelies! My top twelve confessions!

They do say that confessions are good for the soul, so have you got any confessions you'd like to share with me?

Much love,


  1. omg, other than number 9, im the exact same!!!

    i finally washed my brushes today because yesterday, i was setting my eyeliner with an angled brush and i accidently brushed it along my ey eball, straight away i had this image of the brush spreading bacteria onto my eye and then getting some grose infection.

    1. I think it's something many of us share! Oh dear, that sounds painful!

      I really wanted to wash my brushes today but I'm struggling to get to bed early and that will take another 30 minutes so I might have to postpone it till tomorrow...hmm.

  2. Great confessional! We need to improve our water drinking:)

  3. I always mean to wash my brushes more often, but its just so damn boring! Luckily I am a brush whore and have lots, so I can get away with leaving them for a week or two.

    I'm bad with the nail filing too. I try to remember to do it one way, but after years of filing incorrectly it can be hard!

  4. I particularly love number 8, as that is me at the moment! I see something and it calls to me so I have to look and as they say the rest is history! :D

  5. oh yes I am guilty of #1, 3, 6 and 7 esp #1!! and yes Beauty in a bottle it is just too boring!

  6. DD, do you think we have a problem? ;)

    1skin, it's just so hard finding time for everything, isn't it?!
