I've got some great news, I'm back in Melbourne! Did you miss me? This means that regular beauty blogging will now resume! To kick things off, I'm going to begin with this cute tag that the lovely Samileen from A Beauty Detour tagged me on. Do check our her blog, it's full of well written posts, great blogging advice and beautiful photos (her account is one of my favourite Insta accounts, too)! Let's hop to this, shall we?
Oh, and if you happen to like the photo above, it's one of my amateur attempts at photography! I've opened a new account on Instagram (called @thepixtress) which you can follow me on for more of the same!
Keep reading after the jump!
1. It's 2 am, what are you up to?
I'm a night owl, so I'm always either browsing online, watching a favourite tv show or reading a good book.
2. Are you all time partier or home-body?
Hmm, I have my moments where I enjoy both, so it really just depends on my mood. Lately, I'm more of a home-body, especially since the weather is quite cold! It makes you want to curl up on the couch in warm PJs.
3.What's your phones lock screen background?
I actually shared this on Instagram a few months ago. It's part of a photo of a beautiful lake I took in Europe last year. I have this thing about taking photos of water for some crazy reason...
4. Your dream vacation?
A warm beach somewhere! There's nothing I love more than sun, sand and sea. I recently spent a weekend in Krabi, Thailand, and it was amazing. I would love to go back there for a bit longer. I also wouldn't say no to visiting the Greek Islands, Mauritius, Fiji or Boracay, if it came down to that.
5. What was your first make-up product?
I think it was a jumbo eye pencil which my cousin gave me to play with as a child!
6. Five products on your wishlist?
|My current wishlist!|
a) NARS Dual-Intensity Blush in Panic - these are so pretty, I NEED!
b) Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector in Blushed Copper - these have been blowing up Instagram, and I have such a weakness for Copper! Plus, it's limited edition!
c) MAC Cosmetics Wash & Dry Collection Highlighting Powder - look at the photo, enough said!
d) YSL Black Opium Perfume - this perfume smells gorgeous, and has such great longevity!
e) A wood watch by JORD - yes, you read that right, the watches are made of wood! Definitely a little different but these watches are stunning. I love the look of the Sidney series.
7. Worst Social Media site in your-point-of-view?
Pinterest. I just can't seem to get the hang of using it properly!
8. What freaks you out the most?
Bugs, but like Samileen, it's spiders I hate the most, followed by cockroaches and grasshoppers. Ick.
9. How would you react if all your make-up got stolen?
Oh heavens, this is the worst question. I'd be devastated! I honestly don't know what I would do, but it definitely wouldn't be pretty! Some items in my collection are limited editions so I'd never be able to get them back!
10. Pet Peeves?
People who can't be bothered to respond to phone calls or text messages. In this day and age where communication is just so easy (and often free), I think it's really rude not to respond! I also get annoyed when people get too loud in restaurants so you can't hear the people you're with.
There you have it, lovelies, my answers to the tag! I hope you enjoyed it! I'm not going to tag anyone in particular, but I would love to read your answers if you choose to share! Leave them in the comments or just leave a link to your blog! What products are you currently lusting after?
