Hello everyone. Today I’ve got a rather fun tag post for you. The Not Another Tag Tag.This was created by Hayley at Tea Party Beauty and I was tagged by the lovely Kelly at Adventures in Tea and Cake. The rules are to answer the questions, tag 5 people and give props to the creator and whoever tagged you (props Hayley and Kelly). Apparently if you don’t do it you’ll get 68.5 years bad luck. Well, after discovering last week that they only way into my office was to walk under ladders (which I did approximately 102 times) I ain’t risking any more bad luck so here we go.
You’ve made it BIG and bagged some VIP Fashion Week tickets. You lucky devil you.But in your rush to get there and get yourself noticed you forgot your VIP passes. The guy on the door says he will cut you a deal, you can go in only if you sacrifice either your front row seat, backstage privileges or goody bag. What’s it gonna be?
Guess I’ll be in the b-row then! As long as I’d still get a seat to the show somewhere it’d be the front row seats that will go. I think it’d be super awkward sitting in the front row anyway. All these fashiony types would be all like “Who is she!!??” Plus the booze is kept backstage. And the goody bags have goodies in them. Often booze related goodies.
You’re making a new subscription box, what 4 items and which dreaded perfume sample would you include in it?
So I’d make a ‘FBL’ box (Fashion, Beauty, Lifestyle), so there would be a bit of everything. My first box would have: Notebook from OHNORachio; Orly Bonder Rubberised Basecoat; some midi rings maybe; some gourmet marshmallows from The Marshmallow Lady; and for the perfume sample I’d pick Marc Jacobs Oh! Lola. I reckon that’s a pretty good box. I’d hook people in for the first one then it’d be downhill all the way. Brownish lipstick, fake tan sachets, Beiber perfume, tea! Good lord, how I hate tea! I think I’m the only blogger that does.
What’s your biggest blogging bug bear? The one thing guaranteed to make your blood boil and have you screaming/eye rolling at your laptop.
People having better ideas/lives than me – argh green-eyed monster exploding! Haha not really, happy for you guys… I guess the real answer would be trolls with blogs. Y’know, the people who are deliberately offensive just to provoke a reaction and get listed in Buzzfeed’s 37 Assholes of the Internet 2014 (is that a thing?). The Katie Hopkins of the blogging world if you will. My motto in life is “Don’t be a dick”, so, like, don’t be a dick on the internet either.
No more joining in on Twitter chats only slightly relevant to your blog. You can only join in one blogger chat a week for the rest of your blogging days, which one’s it gonna be and why?
I don’t make it often but I think #mybchat (Tuesday at 7pm) always has interesting topics so I’ll say that. No, I’ll change my answer to one that I’ll actually be able to do most weeks – #lbloggers on a Sunday at 7pm. Phew, that was stressful!
‘Fess up, do you actually own any MAC? If so, what don’t you like about the product?
Only one in my current stash – the cremesheen lipstick ‘Creme Cup’. Theres nothing I don’t like about it actually, it’s pretty good. I have had a MAC nail polish in the past that I hated if you’re really just after some MAC hate? Skinny brush, awkward lid, rubbish formula. Stick to the lippies.
The Blogging Gods ban arm swatching, which body part will you swatch on now?
Oh my god, will I have to learn to apply makeup to my face?! What about when you’re just in the shop looking at colours? Apparently your jawline has the most consistent colouring for testing makeup so I suppose it’ll have to be there. If I’m ever after a new eyeshadow I’ll be walking out of Boots with a pretty interesting looking drawn-on beard.
You can no longer have Yankee Candles and perfume bottles in the background of your shots, what other inanimate object will you choose?
Why are the Blogging Gods being so mean? Random knick knacks most probably – like an inappropriate lego figure (Darth Vader and Luke Skywalker embroiled in a lightsaber battle maybe) or some plastic dinosaurs. Or maybe this guy:
Your blog’s Instagram; is it for cats or meal shots?
It’s for allll of the Instagram cliches. Cats, meals, awkwardly posed manicure shots, pugs, cakes, selfies, you name it. Check it – @AlleyHope
