Confessions Of A Beauty Addict Tag

Hello friends, I thought  I'd do a 'Confessions Of A Beauty Addict Tag' today. This tag is the sames as the confessions of a beauty blogger tag. I first learned of this tag from the very lovely Natalie. I've combined questions from Emma's and Chel's blog. So without further ado here are the tag questions and my answers.

3 Beauty Things I suck at

  1. Hair styling.
    As far as hair styling goes, I can place my hair in a 'sock bun' and make a fierce pony tail  but anything beyond that I'll leave to the professionals 
  2. Sticking to a skin care regime. 
    The very reason why I love the Clinique 3 Step System. It's super easy and doesn't require much effort. I know I should be more diligent with applying all the lotions and potions I've bought but by the end of the day when I'm tired I want to spend less than 5 minutes on an evening routine.
  3. Applying blush.
    I'm attending a Chanel masterclass so I'll finally be able to perfect this fundamental skill! haha!

Qs & As

  • Why Did You Start Blogging & How Long Have You Been Blogging For?
    I wanted a space in the big www. to share what I know. I don't work in the beauty industry but my mum ran her own salon when I was younger so I've always been surrounded by beauty and cosmetics. It's always been a passion of mine and I wanted an outlet to express my interest.

  • What Makes Being A Beauty Blogger So Much Fun?Interacting with and learning from other beauty bloggers.

  • What Have You Learnt From Becoming A Beauty Blogger?
    I've learnt about new products and tried some things I wouldn't have ever considered.

  • Have You Changed Anything Since Being A Beauty Blogger?
    I've become a lot more adventurous in my selection of cosmetics. I used to only stick to certain brands but I'm so glad that through reading other blogs I've been introduced to so many new things!

  • What Advice Would You Give To A Beauty Blogger Just Starting Out?
    I guess I'm just starting out myself, but something I always think about before posting is asking myself "Why am I posting this?". Having a clear goal before posting really helps me. Also, stay true to yourself and the reason(s) on why you started blogging in the first place. Whatever motivated you to write is your own business, you don't ever have to justify yourself to other people as long as you're not hurting anyone and you enjoy what you do, keep doing it =)

  • What Do You Wear While Blogging?
    Most likely trackies or I'm in my PJs haha! It takes me a while to write a post so I enjoy being comfy.

  • Most Awkward Blogging Moment.
    I use blogger to upload my posts and I always press publish instead of save, so I end up publishing drafts sometimes haha.

  • Are You A Spender Or A Saver?
    Spender for sure. I always say I'm a marketers dream! I get sucked into campaigns even though I know what they're trying to do and all the marketing strategies they use to get customers. What can I say? I love shiny new things =)

    But having said that (^) I do still have my proud thrifty moments. There are things out there that you have to spend a bit more on if you want the results, but there are also things you can choose to save rather than splurge on. For example nail polish, I have $2 nail polishes that put my $20 OPI's to shame.

  • Who's your favourite blogger?
    There are sooooo many awesome bloggers out there but my favourite would have to be the Raeviewer. She's more of a youtube-guru but her blog is pretty awesome too. Her content is primarily luxury and designer brands, so If you're wondering about whether or not you should invest in that expensive makeup, chances are Rae's done an honest review on it on her blog.
