This, That or T'Other?

First off can I just say THANK GODDDDDD the lovely Libby from CherryTruth2 has tagged me to do this post, because I have been in some serious blogging hot water this last week.
Honestly, I've been sat at home on my todd, itching to blog and finding myself with absolutely naff all to write about.

I had an OOTE to write up, but looking at the pictures and remembering what outfit it actually was, I think the less said the better.
Those pictures will never make it off my phone.
Apart from via deletion.
That blog post will forever be an illusion.

...and I have been STUCK!

Now as you will know, I have an uncanny and sometimes rather annoying ability to ramble, and write long, loooong blog posts, so right now THIS SECOND, I am going to shut up, and get on with it...

Very old photo which I deemed random enough to include...because no-one likes a blog post with no piccies.

The Beauty 'This or That TAG':

Make Up:
Blush or Bronzer? 
Bronzer all day every day! 
I frequently get asked by my not very make-up aware other half , 'err what's that orange stuff on your cheeks?'.
I think he'd die if I had both orange and pink.

Lipgloss or Lipstick?
Lipstick! I have the odd lipgloss but it can definitely only be worn on hair-up days...sticky icky eugh.

Liner or Mascara? 
Mascaraaaaa!!!!!!!!! This is me we're talking about, the more lashes, the better.

Foundation or Concealer? 
Concealer. I err, don't actually own a foundation - yes, yes I know, like how?
My skin is far from perfect, but I just never really started wearing it, I just put extra concealer on my cheeks and the odd blemish to cover the redness, and then add a transparent powder to mattify me :)

Neutral Eyeshadow or Colour? 

Pressed or loose eyeshadow?
Oooh I'm not daredevil enough to get a loose one, I mean imagine the potential mess right there?! 

Nails and Body:
OPI or China Glaze? 
Ermmmm...Barry M?

Long or Short Nails?
Long, but not in the freakish/gross sense, just long enough for the 'Oh are you wearing acrylics?', 'No, they're all mine' conversation. 
I'm still waiting for this conversation to happen by the way.
One day...

Acrylic or Natural? 
Natural! I once had an encounter with gel nails, it ended badly.

Brights or Darks? 
It depends on the time of year, I love a good, glossy dark red or purple all through Autumn and Winter, but then I love brights and pastels in Spring and Summer.

Flower or No Flower?
*girl off McDonalds advert voice*
'What does that even mean?'
Haha yeah, you know the one ;)

Perfume or Body Splash? 
Perfumeeeeee. The stronger the better. 
I potentially smell like a baby prostitute on a daily basis, but seriously, if I buy perfume, I'm not buying it to use one tiny spray and make it last.
I want to smelllllll!!!!
haha, sounds weird...

Lotion or Body Butter? 
Ooooh can I have both?
Seriously, I love both. 
Although right now I'm using my amazing £1 M&S body lotion and there's probably no way I could get a body butter for that price.
Body lotion it is.

Body Wash or Soap?
Body wash :) don't think I've used soap to wash since I was a tiny tot.

Lush or other bath company? 
I've never been to Lush.

Jeans or Sweat Pants?
Depends if I'm leaving the house or not...there's no way I'll sit around the house in jeans.

Long Sleeve or Short Sleeve? 
I once left the house in September wearing short sleeves, thinking it was still warm and I was hardcore enough...
I was wrong.
Long sleeves win.

Dresses or skirts? 
Both, as long as they're not skater style. 

Stripes or Plaid? 
Stripes, but I dislike both if I'm honest. I only like a few striped things.

Flip Flops or Sandals? 
Okay they're very similar...I'll say sandals because they're like flip flops but usually prettier haha...

Scarves or Hats? 
Scarves, my head is too big for the 'cool' hats haha!

Studs or Dangly Earrings? 
DANGLYYYY!! I have had an earring obsession since I was about three, and would wear my mums dangly earrings at every opportunity.
In my younger and less OTT aware days, it wasn't unusual for me to wear three sets of various sized hoops at a time.
Thankfully, I've seen the light and am no longer a human jewellery stand.
But still, the bigger and longer the better.

Heels or Flats? 
Flats, I love heels don't get me wrong, but man they huuuuuuurt.

Cowboy Boots or Riding Boots? 
Neither lol. Regular boots.

Jacket or Hoodie? 
Jacket. I love a good hoodie, but only in the house.
When I say a good hoodie, I also only mean my boyfriend's hoodies, they're just better, non?

Forever 21 or Charlotte Russe?
Forever 21, because I've never heard of Charlotte Russe....

Abercrombie or Hollister? 
Hollister, because I've never been in Abercrombie, although if you can enter it without a torch I'm tempted to choose it anyway haha...
Seriously Hollister, why so dark? 
You're trying to sell me clothes but I can't see them!

Curly or Straight? 

Bun or Ponytail?
Bun, a ponytail only if it's massive and more voluminous than a lions mane.

Bobby Pins or Butterfly Clips? 
Bobby pins!! Ask me aged seven and I would have answered that differently...

Hair Spray or Gel? 
Do any of you ladies out there actually wear gel? 
Hair spray. Despite the damage it did to my poor hair...

Long or Short? 

Light or Dark? 
Darkkkk...since I saw the light and crossed to the dark side, I've never looked back.

Side Sweep or Full Bangs? 
Side fringe!! Tons of times I see people with full fringes and think 'wowwww', but on me I'd end up looking all nose and teeth. 
Naaaat good.

Up or Down? 
Down. Even though I've worn my hair up every day for the last year... 
Hmm, contradictory little so-and-so I am.

Rain or Shine? 
Haha just kidding...
Come on now, what kind of stupid question is that?

Summer or Winter? 
See above. ^^^

Fall or Spring? 
As mad as it sounds, I'm tempted to say Autumn, because a lot of the time, Autumn is still warm(ish), and it's the exciting run up to Christmas, whereas a good portion of Spring is just plain disappointing, (a la NOW!) and doesn't even TRY and tease you that Summer is on its way.
Nah, who am I kidding, I still say Spring.

Chocolate or Vanilla?
 Chocolate. Always chocolate.

East Coast or West Coast? 
Wellll...I'm in England, and there's not much between the two if I'm honest. 
Cold, damp, dingy, and full of penny arcades.
If I had to pick an American coast it would be the East, because they have both New York for shopping, and Florida for a bit of sunshine.
Seriously, why are the English coasts so poor in comparison?!
What did we do to deserve this?!

Another old photo I deemed random enough to include.
This time not as random, because I'm demonstrating my preference for long, dark and curly hair, bright nails, Summer, the dangliest earrings known to human kind, chocolate, (I was awaiting pudding mmm) neutral eyes, mascara, and copious amounts of bronzer.
Also, I can assure you I was wearing sandals of the gold and sparkly variety.

Going to end there, before the tan I have in that last photo reduces me to actual tears.

Before I go I would like to tag...

I'm off to drown my sorrows in a bowl of melted chocolate houmous, (because I'm a healthy mo-fo) and think of Summer.
