The #BBLOGGER Tag :) aka SHAME.

This should actually be known as the 'SHAME' tag.
Because all I fear I'm about to do is shame myself fully, and look like an even worse beauty blogger than I did the other week...
I should be stripped of such a title and thrown to the lions.
(Or leopards, they're prettier)

If I hadn't already used it, I'd believe now to be an appropriate place to link the Princess Superstar 'Bad Babysitter' video.

Instead however, given that I'm about to reveal details covered in filth, shame, and most likely more black mould than my Dettol BFF spray can handle, I'll link you this one:

Because she's 'a scumbag don't you know'...

Welcome to...

Before I begin creating you an image of myself you'd rather not know about, I'd like to thank Kate from 'Pretty Little Us', for doing this tag and thus making me giggle more than I have in a while.
She's a doll she is.
A good and gorgeous Geordie doll.

1. Name a beauty routine you barely do:
Tempted to ask where to start here...
I believe I should exfoliate more; particularly in the Summer months when I become vain and shallow to the extent that I seem to think that tan prolongage is more important than removing dead skin cells.
Totes is.
I believe I should also probably paint my nails more, I've had nails of the nekkid variety for at least a month now, and I'd be kidding myself if I told you it was to give my nails a break in the hope that they will grow...
I mean it would be an awesome bonus if they did actually grow.
But they haven't.
Not even a bit.
In reality I just can't be bothered to do them knowing that they will be chipped after a single days wear.

2. Is washing your make-up brushes something you do regularly?
See here's the thing, I use one single eyeshadow brush, one single bronzer brush, (defo not even a bronzer brush, it's shape and use is unknown, and in fact it's good for nothing) and a skinnier brush I use to apply my highlight, purely because my highlight is the only product it picks up.
They get washed about once every six weeks, if that...and err all three are on their last legs.
One more wash and there won't be enough fluff left on them to warrant usage.
In desperation I may turn to my toothbrush or something, I mean it's about the right size for my eyes at least?
And definitely cleaner.

3. How long will you last with chipped nail varnish?
An hour.
Maybe less.
And sadly it doesn't come off via the safe and healthy 'nail-polish-remover-and-cotton-wool-pad' method...
More likely the 'pick-it-off-along-with-at-least-one-layer-of-your-nail-for-good-luck' method.
You know the one.

4. How long do you put off buying/replacing a beauty or nail polish product even if you need it?
(i.e topcoat, foundation and so on)
Allow me to direct you to my Instagram. I've been documenting the demise of my products on a regular basis...

I'm currently in need of a replacement bronzer, highlight, powder, brown and black eyeliner, top coat, nail polish remover, eye gel, toner, and leave in conditioner.
They all lived full and happy lives, but are soon to earn their wings and start their new life in the bin.

5. What is your worst beauty habit?
You want more?
Haven't I shamed myself enough?
Okay, so aside from the lack of nail painting, dead skin congregating, non-brush washing and general bad beauty bloggingness, you want more?

Aw mannn.
Okay so it's not that I nicked this one off Kate, but I am purely the same in that I can not leave well alone!
My skin is luckily relatively clear and constant, but you can mark my words that not only do I have to pick and squeeze every teeny tiny blemish until it becomes huge and unsightly, but I also pick and squeeze my clear skin and create marks when they're not there!
Needless to say I then regret it and have to re-do my skin routine in a bid to repair the damage.
It works, sometimes.

6. Name something non-beauty related that you put off doing all the time.
Well as of this morning I've become aware that a very nasty and sneaky black mould problem has returned and is lurking nastily upstairs, behind and most probably on my wardrobe...
Of course I SHOULD be spending yet another evening emptying, moving, and de-moulding said wardrobe, along with the walls and windows - then having all the windows open in order to avoid inhaling 'Dettol Mould and Mildew Remover', therefore hallucinating that the mould was growing on my head instead of hair.

Nahh...blogging is much more fun.

7. When going out somewhere, do you leave getting ready until the last minute or not?
No, I am awesome.
I take ages, but I'm awesome...

...and still always late

8. Can you commit to spending bans?
Again, I am awesome.

9. How organised are your make-up and nail polish collections? make-up is all in one bag contained on a shelf which also houses my MAC and Naked palettes, and my nail polish is all in one collections are large but not extensive enough to group or order in any way, so that's enough for me. :)

10. What's the longest time you've gone without writing a blog post?
Ufffff well, about nine days.
Maybe ten.
And that was only a couple of weeks not too bad if I'm honest considering I generally only do one post a week.

See this here, this is spoiling you this is.
Two posts in under a week.

Don't say I don't treat you ;)


Now then, in other things I am avoiding at the minute, one is my Jillian Michaels DVD. Once again I can hear her bellowing my name and threatening to remove the houmous from my fridge if I don't leg it up them stairs soon...
I cannot risk this you guys.
My houmous is my world and my everything.
It's also tomorrows dinner, and if it goes then my belly will make noises I'm really not so keen on.
I swear one day you'll pop onto my little blog right here and see the name is now 'Houmous Mixtures' or something equally questionable.

I'm off, in fear of Jillian, and to save my beloved houmous.
See she too changes when the sun goes down.

I can see it in her eyes yeah that she's got a nasty plan,
And I really don't want* to be involved at all...

*my houmous


  1. I couldn't even read all of this, I go to 'an hour' and had to stop. I was laughing too much xx
