Would You Rather?

Hey guys! I haven’t done a tag in a while, so today I was looking for a new and fun one to do, and found this “Would You Rather” beauty one, so without further adieu, here we go with the questions!

1.Would you rather go out with messy hair and nice make-up or Nice hair and no make-up?

Messy hair and nice makeup is like my go-to on the daily.

2.Would you rather shave your eyebrows or have your eyelashes fall out?

I would rather have to wear falsies everyday than draw my eyebrows on!

3.Would you rather be forced to shop at only MAC or Sephora for the rest of your life?

Sephora I guess because there is much more choice and I could shop around.

4.Would you rather wear lipgloss/lipliner look or 80’s perm?

I think that the lipgloss/lipliner look can work with the right colours and blending, so I’d go for that one.

5.Would you rather leave the house with an obvious foundation line or overdone blush?

I would rather neither or these, come on now!

6.Would you rather wear MC Hammer pants or biker shorts in public?

MC Hammer pants, for sure.

7.Would you rather have a bad orange-y spray tan or really weird tan lines that can’t be covered?

Weird tan lines, it’d make for an interesting story.

8.Would you rather have a bad haircut or bad hair colour?

Aaaaaaaaaaaah, a bad hair colour I guess.

9.Would you rather have YouTube or Twitter taken away forever?

Twitter, because there is so much amazing content on YouTube that I like to watch daily.

10. Would you rather give up using makeup brushes or mascara?

Mascara because that wand can’t flawlessly blend for me!

That’s it for this tag, it’s quite fun and different from other tags that I’ve done, so if you enjoyed it, be sure to give it a go yourself!

Let me know how you would’ve answered some of these questions in the comments!

Around The World In Barely A Minute Tag

Hey guys! I was tagged by the ever so lovely Egypt from AGirlNamedEgypt to do the ‘Around The World In Barely A Minute’ Tag, where you share where all of your readers are from!

I thought like this sounded like fun, but I wanted to add my own little twist on it, so I’ve added 20 travel-related questions to make this tag a little bit more fun.

So here’s my map, showcasing all of the places that my blog has readership. I’m quite proud, because this year I’ve already got new readers in countries that I hadn’t reached last year, like India and Brazil! (Shoutout to the readers from there!)

ertyuio
All places places coloured in are places my blog has readership! (Red is a higher readership, and yellow is smaller)

1. Where are you from in the world?

I’m from the UK

2. Do you prefer summer or winter? Why?

I prefer summer for sunbathing and not having to wear a coat, and winter for snow and having to wear a coat.

The only seasonal change to my wardrobe is tights, scarf and a coat, so I have no preference.

Tokyo

Sunscreen, it’s the only essential, people.

Some kind of superstore that sells clothes, rilakkuma and makeup.

I don’t really have a favourite, I tend to rely on my fellow blogging buddies for beauty advice, and they are based all over the world!

10. What accent in the world is your favourite to hear?

I don’t really have a general ‘favourite’ accent, but I do like Welsh and Irish accents.

17. Do you read up on your destination for culture, history or safety or do you wing it?

I usually just wing it

18. You’re leaving tomorrow, money is no option, where are you going?

Tokyo, no question

19. Beach holiday or travel/explore holiday?

I’m definitely more up for travelling/exploring holidays, I can visit a beach every summer but I can’t soak up the culture of another city every year.

“Make a journey, typically of some length.”


That’s it for my own take on the ‘Around The World In Barely A Minute Tag’, I hope you guys enjoyed it!

BLOGMAS Day 6 // The Christmas Tag

backgrounderHey guys, and welcome to the 6th day of Blogmas! I can’t believe how fast the days are going by this month! So since the whole reason I’m taking part in these festivities, is Christmas, I thought today I’d go through The Christmas Tag with you, hope you enjoy!

What is your favourite thing about Christmas?
Cue cheesy answer-time, but I just really enjoy people coming together and spreading happiness. I’m a sucker for kindness and anything that involves fairy lights and decorating.
What is your favourite Christmas movie/s?
The Grinch. Everything about it, nothing can top it for me.
Real tree or fake tree?
I’m quite open to both, we have both each year, and I can see where they both have their pros and cons. Fake trees are more practical and easy, but a real tree means you get the full Christmas experience, going to pick it, and the smell!
Giving presents or receiving them?
I am not going to pretend like I don’t like getting gifts, but I love knowing I’ve got something that someone will love for them, I almost can’t wait to just tell them!
Do you open your presents Christmas morning or evening?
Morning! But also throughout the day, as we see different family members through the day.
What tops your tree?
An angel in the living room, a star in my Christmas Wonderland, and a snowflake in my room.
 As a kid what was the one (crazy, wild, extravagant) gift you always asked for but never received?
A pony. Probably every year until I was 12.
Handmade Christmas cards or bought?
Handmade. I don’t have the time to make them, but I’d definitely prefer a handmade card instead of a bought one. But I appreciate the thought, regardless of who made it!
What’s your favourite Christmas food?
Honey roasted vegetables and roast potatoes.
Do you have any Christmas Eve traditions?
Putting snacks out for Santa and the reindeer.  Then failing to fall asleep because I’m far too excited even though I’m not even a teen any more.

That’s it for The Christmas Tag, it was really fun to answer these questions, so I definitely recommend this tag to anyone who is blogging/taking part in Blogmas this year!

//YESTERDAYS POST//

Sweater Weather Tag

Fotor01011221215I’ve been nominated by the lovely Rebecca from Waves Of Thought to do the Sweater Weather tag, so today I’m sharing my answers with you guys!


Favourite Candle Scent?

My favourite year-round scent is definitely Fresh Linen, it can’t be beaten! But particularly for fall, I love cosy scents, ironically like Bath & Body Works’ ‘Sweater Weather’!

Coffee, Tea or Hot Chocolate?

I love all three, but for this time of year, hot chocolate all the way!

What’s the best fall memory that you have?

Everything. Every memory. Every year oh my word. From Christmas, to Fireworks night, Halloween and Thanksgiving. But if I had to pick just one I’d say my Halloween when I was 8, because that’s when I got Tabs and Ginge.

Which make-up trend do you prefer: dark lips or winged eyeliner?

Winged eyeliner all of the way. Though I do adore dark lips, I wear winged eyeliner with almost every makeup look I do.

Best Fragrance for fall?

I like fruity and floral fragrances all year long, so anything like Katy Perry’s Meow or Ari by Ariana Grande.

Favourite Thanksgiving food?

Honey. Roasted. Vegetables.

What is autumn weather like where you live?

Autumn weather where I live is mostly perfect, and quite picturesque really. Crispy orange leaves on the floor, bright mornings and beautiful sunsets. But I can’t hide the fact that it does rain, both heavily and annoyingly drizzly.

Most worn sweater?

I don’t really wear a lot of sweaters, but I do like wearing oversized ones for lounging about the house.

Football games or jumping in leaf piles?

Jumping in a pile of leaves, for sure!

Favourite type of pie?

I know this question is intended to be a fruity/autumnal pie, but all I can think of is chicken pie, so we’re going with that.

What song really gets you into the fall spirit?

Since Katy Perry’s Prism came out this time last year, I guess I really associate that album with this time of year especially. But I’m a sucker for Christmas music, I’ll probably start blasting that on Nov 1st…

Is pumpkin spice worth the hype?

This year is actually the first year I’ve experienced pumpkin spice, and I can safely say, yes it is. It takes a little getting used to, but it is perfect for fall.

I nominate:

Karen from Confetti & Curves

Egypt from A Girl Named Egypt

Jessica from Miss Influential


And that’s it! I hope you guys enjoyed this post, I certainly did because I’m obsessed with his time of year!

Meet My Boys: Sawyer & Milo

A few years ago, well, precisely 3, I had what I can only ever explain as, a need. I have always been so happy with my pets, and I adore every single one of them. But 4 years ago I felt like I was ready for a bigger responsibility. I had a need for a kitten. Like all kids, I approached my parents, gave an outstanding speech about how lucky they are to have me as a child, and therefore the most fitting reward would be a kitten.

I was told no.

But being as tenacious as I am, I gradually began my plot to both prove myself, and annoy my parents. So began the year of non-stop-kitten talk.

Eventually my father gave in and told my mum to ‘just let her have a kitten already.’ And so the search began. By search, I mean one day of browsing the classifieds and Internet. Heck, I’d been waiting a year already, I wasn’t planning on waiting any longer. My mum even told me of a friend of hers, who had a newly pregnant cat, and I could have pick of the litter. But I would not wait long enough for her to give birth. Instead, I found a handsome black and white kitten, and I begged to go and pick him up immediately, but was told I’d have to wait until the next day. I couldn’t sleep a wink.

The next day FINALLY rolled around, my father told us he’d see us with our 2 kittens later on. I argued back, insisting I only wanted 1. 3 cats was more than enough for me, 4 was just silly. We went on the journey to pick him up. Sawyer Scott. He’d been called that since before I knew I was getting him. We got there, I fell in love. My mums friend texted me, jokingly telling me I could only get a kitten if I named him Milo. So naturally, I told my mum we needed to get another one, because Sawyer was already firmly named.

We left with 2.

DSCN0867

Sawyer Scott Bygrave | 2 | Black and white

Ragamuffin. Prince. Sawyer is the embodiment of a handsome, cheeky, loveable boy. He IS his uncle Tyler. Everything Uncle Ty does, so does Soy. And what Soy doesn’t copy, he watches intently and demands to be a part of any activity.

Hobbies Include: Fly Hunting, Being persuasive, emulating uncle Tyler, sitting on laptops, rolling in soot, counting with his tail, picking fights he is not big enough for, being gorgeous and chasing Ginger.


DSCN0857

Milo Taloola Bygrave | 2 | Golden as the sun

Lion-in-the-making. Refuses to wear a collar because he knows he is destined to be a wild one. Milo is much more a relaxed bystander. Observing everything. Silent until absolutely necessary. Trusting of a select few. You’re the most honoured in the room if he chooses to seat himself on your lap. I also like to describe My to people who don’t know him, as someone who likes to go everywhere either ass, or claws first.

Hobbies Include: Judging people while they sneeze, biting his nails (specifically on my bed, despite rule #3, no clipping nails on my bed), sleeping on pillows (despite rule number #2, no sleeping on pillows), obsessing over anything horse-scented and sighing.
