Get to Know Me: The Beauty Blogger Tag!

So I was recently tagged to do the Leibster award again by these two lovely bloggers The Beauty Feature and Mazzle . But since I've already done the tag I thought I would do another different one! So this is the Get to Know Me: The Beauty Blogger Tag which I believe was initially started by Love, Lacy. You can expect some new content soon, I just can't find my camera charger and my iPhone is currently being fixed (so I am phoneless and feel very out of the loop). Enjoy this little tag and I tag all of my beautiful readers to do it as well! If you do it then please leave your link in the comments below so I can learn more about ya'll!!!!

1. Is your hair naturally curly or straight?
Curly, very curly... See right below

2. Do you dye it yourself or go to a salon?
Ages ago I used to dye my hair a dark brown but then I realized it looked terrible with my pale skin and went back to my natural blonde. Now I definitely always go to the salon to get it coloured. Don't want to mess with bleach or anything at home.

3. Do you wear the same style everyday, or do you change it?
Hair wise? It depends. If it's the summer it's pretty much always up in a bun (see my Harper Beckham top knot post here). But I try to wear it down the first day after I wash it as it normally looks decent. I never ever straighten it anymore because I don't have 2 hours to waste on my hair, especially when it's just going to poof out anyways.

4. Do you do your own mani/pedi or go to a salon?
A mix of both. I like to keep my natural nails looking good by filing and using cuticle oil every week. But I also really enjoy going out and getting them done. 

5. How often do you change your nail polish?
I am constantly changing my nail polish, I'd say at least twice a week when I have time. I have a saying, if I don't have enough time to just sit down and do my nails once a week, I'm too busy and I need to start taking more time for myself.

6. Do you polish your toes in the winter or just the summer?
Honestly, mostly just in the summer, but if I'm wearing peep toes or going on vacation I will do them in the winter!

7. How long does it take for you to put on makeup?
A very very long time. But really, I'm trying to condense it but it usually takes around 30-40 minutes depending on how much I'm wearing. If it's a full face, definitely more towards the longer end, but if it's just a little mascara, eyeliner and foundation probably around 20 minutes. 

8. What do you do first? Face or eyes?
Eyes. Eyes. Eyes. Too much fallout and crap to do face first. I do however wait to do my mascara and eyeliner till my face is done, don't know why. 

9. Do you collect makeup or just buy what you need when you need it?
I think everyone here knows the answer to this question. I have way too much makeup than I actually need. But I try to use everything I already have regularly and I was on a pretty long spending limit before my last few shopping trips. 

10. How often do you wear false eyelashes?
Never really, I'm still learning on which ones work best and how to put them on properly. I know for some people it's as easy as breathing, but finding the right fit and position is harder than trigonometry for me.

11. Do you do a full face of makeup everyday?
No I definitely have my no-makeup days and days where I only put on foundation and mascara. However, usually when I put on makeup I go all the way and do a full face. I'm a go big or go home kinda gal. 

12. Do you wear makeup when you're home alone or with family?
Yeah sometimes! I just feel more productive when I'm wearing makeup which sounds crazy but I'm sure some of you understand. I don't do it all the time, but I will put on makeup even if I don't think I'm going out. I like trying out new looks and products and sometimes they don't turn out the way I like so if it's just family who cares!

13. Will you leave the house without makeup?
Yes! A lot of people think I won't, or don't like to because of how much I love wearing makeup. But sometimes I just don't have time to put on makeup. It's all about loving yourself with or without makeup!

14. How many high-end products do you have?
I think it's probably a pretty even 50/50 split. 

15. Do you plan your OOTD every night or decide when you're getting dressed?
During the school months I definitely mentally plan out what I'm wearing the night before, but when it's summer or just plain vacation I just kinda go with the flow and chose something/ anything thats clean. 

16. How often do you change your handbag?
Probably like once a month. I used to use the same bag until I bought a new one, but I've been trying to reduce, reuse and recycle so I've been going through my old bags fairly often these days... That is when my best friend isn't borrowing like 6 of them at a time. 

17. What time do you wake up and go to sleep?
I usually go to bed around 2-3am during the summer nights because I am a night owl. But during the school months/ when I'm working, some nights I go to bed at 8pm! As for waking up... this is extremely accurate for everyday of the year. 

18. How often or when do you workout?
Hah. Does twice a year count? I really want to join a gym but there really isn't any good ones around that aren't filled with juice heads or a billion dollars a month.

19. Left handed or right handed?

20. How tall are you?
5'1 1/2 but I say 5'2

21. Do you speak any foreign languages?
Unfortunately I don't. I speak a tiny bit of Italian, and I can understand it pretty well but I haven't been able to actually learn it all yet.

22. How many pets do you have?
I have an adorable Chocolate Lab named Angel, and two beautiful guinea pigs named Penny & Fiona. 

23. How often are you on Blogger?
That depends, I usually try to get a couple of posts up per week. But my phone is currently being fixed and I can't find the charger to my camera so I'm in a bit of a predicament! 

24. Do you read comments posted on blogs?
For sure! On both my own and other peoples! I think that's one of the best ways to find new and awesome blogs! 

25. Do you keep a list of products to try as you see other posts?
Not really a physical list, but if someone blogs about a product that I think I would really like then I'll jot it down in my phone. 

26. How did you come up with your blog name?
I actually don't really remember! I mean obviously it is a nod to Snow White and the whole "Mirror Mirror on the wall whose the fairest of them all?" but I don't know what made me think of that when I was starting up my blog. 

27. What kind of camera do you use for your photographs?
I have a Nikon (don't remember the specs, it's nothing fancy though) or my iPhone.

28. How often do you clean your house?
Honestly, not as often as I should. I've been putting off cleaning my room for days (maybe even weeks). But today I cleaned my entire house from top to bottom and it makes me so happy!

29. What's your favorite color?
Pink, pink pink! 

30. Do you swear?
Yes, but when I'm out in public or family I try to tone it down/ turn it off. 

31. What are you doing with the rest of your day?
Well considering it's already 10pm not much! I tend to do more productive things at night, which is so weird.
