Tag Time: 15 Weird Questions Tag

This was actually a request from a friend of mine (yayayayayay (that was me being excited to get a request)) and the main purpose of me doing this post is to display how strange I am, so here we go.

OH! and before I forget, PLEASE leave in the comments below any request of anything that you’d like to see me do a review/tutorial/etc on 🙂

#1. What’s a nickname only your family calls you?
Hahaha. Well actually, my family doesn’t really have an English nickname for me but in chinese, my nickname that I’ve had ever since I was a baby was the chinese for “soft” because I was really soft and squishy when I was a baby and it’s like a standard endearing name so my family basically all call me that.

#2. What’s a weird habit of yours?
I touch my neck and my necklace, a lot, when I talk. I used to tug on my hair. OH! I get distracted so easily, so when I’m talking, I’ll literally stop in the middle of my sentence and then talk about something else and when I finish talking about that, I then literally finish that original sentence EXACTLY where I left off.

#3. Do you have any weird phobias?
I’m horrified of going on Ferris Wheels. Well actually, the truth is, I’m not always scared but 3 out of 5 times, I will absolutely FREAK THE HELL OUT when I’m on one.

(Well, actually, the truth is I have quite bad anxiety and it’s usually rather under control but I do get into situations where I’m just not able to control it sufficiently and I just go into from mild to serious panic attacks and I guess being in a tiny contraption, floating in air just seriously triggers those panic attacks.)

#4. What’s a song you secretly LOVE to blast and belt out when you’re alone?
Um, all songs? I love the belt out so many. OH! A great one would be Stacy’s Mom by Fountains of Wayne.

#5. What’s one of your biggest pet peeves?
Flakey people, I just HATE flakey people, and with that comes the lateness peeve. I get so so SO annoyed at late people. I don’t mind if you’re late once or twice for like a few minutes but once it gets too much, NO. I get so so frustrated. I hate it when people make really loud noises when they eat. That just sends shivers up my back. And thirdly, I hate people who just don’t understand limits. Like there is so far you can go with a joke or something. Don’t go past that.

#6. What’s one of your nervous habits?
I talk. A lot. My mouth goes faster than I can think when I’m nervous. Like in an interview where I’m really nervous, I just talk non stop. And the really funny thing is, I come off as really confident when I’m really now.

#7. What side of the bed do you sleep on?
Always the right side.

#8. What was your first stuffed animal and it’s name?
Honestly speaking, I don’t give my stuffed animal names. I’ve never had. I have TONS of stuffed animals, all of which don’t have names. And I honestly don’t remember my first one.

#9. What’s the drink you ALWAYS order at starbucks?
Usually hot chocolate if I’m in a rush and just grabbing something. But other than that, I just choose something that looks interesting because I’m very adventurous when it comes to drinks.

#10. What’s the beauty rule you preach.. but never ACTUALLY practice?
This is a hard one generally because I don’t preach many “beauty rules” and the ones I do preach, I follow otherwise that would make me rather hypocritical wouldn’t it? Um, I guess something to do with makeup because I’m not that vigilant with makeup.

#11. Which way do you face in the shower?
Towards the water if I’m not washing my hair and away from the water if I am. I guess I’m a weird one.

#12. Do you have any ‘weird’ body ‘skills’?
Oh I don’t know. My joints hyperextend? I actually don’t have any body skills haha.

#13. What’s your favorite ‘comfort food’/food thats ‘bad’ but you love to eat it anyways?
Ice cream. Always the ice-cream. And home made cookies. But my mom doesn’t make them and she doesn’t let me cook in her kitchen so it’s not really an issue.

#14. What’s a phrase or exclamation you always say?
I say “haha” so much when I type but honestly, it’s mainly because I laugh so much in real life. I say “i’m crazy” a lot. I say “shizzle” a lot too. I do swear quite a bit but I’ve gotten a lot better now. I just say stuff like shizzle, f*ck, b*tchass, etc. Nothing really rude like the c word, or the other worse f and d and g words because those are really rude. They’re not even swearing, they’re just unnecessary.

#15. Time to sleep- what are you ACTUALLY wearing?
I wear my underwear (or panties as people call them), a t-shirt and a crop top/tube bra underneath it.

That is it for this tag. I tag all of you who want to do it to do it.

Thanks for hanging out with me, doing this tag. I had fun. See you tomorrow.

Tag Again!: 10 Little Secrets

Hey guys! I know, another tag! I’m sorry but I’ve been so busy these past few days, especially with just getting back from my vacation so yeah. I’ll hopefully be back into the swing of things tomorrow 🙂

1. What is one product that makes you feel like a million dollars?

Mascara, mascara, mascara!!! I absolutely love it. Because my eyes aren’t very big and tend to be a little droopy if I don’t “lift” it with something, I love to wear mascara. It just makes me looks so much more awake and just improves my confidence by so so much. I can wear no makeup but mascara and I won’t feel naked!

Right now I’m using: Bad Girl Mascara by Benefit

2. What is your skincare secret? / A passed down skin care tip

Oh god, I am NOT someone to be passing down skin care tips, God just look at my skin! But my mom tells me this AGAIN AND AGAIN: after washing your face with a cleanser or whatever you use, make sure to use a toner, especially at night, to remove any excess grease or dirt from the day. You don’t that lingering on your face overnight!

3. Share your hair care secret?

Conditioner!!! Need I say more?!

4. What is your biggest diet rule?

On my little list of posts to do, this one was actually planned for tomorrow because I’ve been on a “get healthy” diet since february this year, and it’s been working out for me so amazingly. So basically, a few quick tips before tomorrow:

– Don’t go on a calorie restriction or fad diet. Those don’t work out because they don’t last and you’ll lose the pounds but then gain them right back. And they’re so bad for you.

– Everyone’s heard this before: DON’T SKIP BREAKFAST!

– and most importantly, I’ve found this to be a really helpful tip. You know when you see something, and you’re not really hungry but you see it and crave it and you just have to eat it. Well, don’t give in straight away. Like if you just had lunch half an hour ago and you’re not that hungry and you know you shouldn’t eat that choc-chip muffin sitting there but you want it. Take a deep breath and walk turn away. Distract yourself. BUT! If you still want it 5-10 minutes later, then buy it and eat it and be done with it! The worst idea is to restrict yourself because when you turn away from the craving then you’re more likely to make a “mistake”and binge/eat something unhealthy at your next meal.

5. Any workout tips?

Have a sustainable schedule. Workout for 30-60 minutes. And do it consistently. Maybe do it with a friend or do a class, that way you can’t talk yourself out of it because you’re being lazy!

6. Which perfume is your secret weapon?

This one is so so hard because I absolutely ADORE perfume! My best friend and I have this thing where for Christmas every single year, we’d get each other perfume. Every year! Haha. But I have to say I adore the Miss Dior Cherie Blooming Bouquet for a spring/summer day, the Black XS by Paco Rabanne  for spring/summer evening, Freak by Illamasqua for winter. But sometimes I like to just wear a body spray (Coconut Passion Body Mist by Victoria’s Secret) and I’ve gotten so many compliments on this. I go to hug a friend or whatever and they’re like “oh my god! you smell amazing! what is that?” and this has been more than one person. And guys LOVE this smell because it’s so subtle and you just smell like cookies or something. Its amazing!

7. Show us a clothing item of yours which always turns heads

I don’t have one clothing item but I love off the shoulder tops. They’re not revealing in that you don’t see the chest area or whatever but they’re really sexy in that you see some skin but not enough to seem like you’re showing too much, you know.

8. What is your most treasured piece of jewellery?

I have a ring that my mother got for me for christmas I think 2 yrs ago now. And its this Tiffany & Co. Hearts ring and I just love it to bits!

My mother and I actually have a thing where she gets me a really really lovely piece of jewellery once and year and I really treasure them and I just wear them all the time. Like last year, for my birthday she got me a tiny emerald necklace from Hardy Brothers Jewellers and I’ve basically worn it every day since.

9. Who is your style crush?

I don’t have one person who I just copy and paste off but one of my friends who like so artsy and she does art and textiles and stuff, she’s really inspirational. I love watching people on youtube and I get ideas there. Bloggers as well like Passions for Fashion, Cheyenne meets Chanel, Le Blog de Betty etc. They’re all real people with amazing fashion sense! I also look up to Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen and Nicole Richie. 🙂

10. Tell us something we don’t know about you

Hmm… I don’t know actually… Although I’m an extremely extroverted person and I love people and I make friends really easily, I often become close friends with people who aren’t “good” for me and therefore a lot of my friendships don’t last. But I love to meet new people and I’m always open to hear people out.

So that is all for this tag. Thank you for reading.

A Little Bit Obsessed: Nail Polish Tag

Anyone who knows me would know that far far before I got into makeup, I was into nail polish. I adore it!!! So hear is a Nail Polish Tag and I TAG ALL OF YOU TO DO IT 🙂

1. What’s your favourite nail polish company?

OPI. haha! maybe a little over popularised but i love it all the same! I can trust it to be good quality and a lovely color payoff.

2. Glitter or no glitter?


Even though there is a hassle to remove glitter nail polish, I still love it. But I love to lay glitter polishes over coloured ones a lot of the time to give it more substance and that way, it feels weighted enough to wear it in winter as well.

Check out this tutorial for Cotton Candy Nails.

3. OPI, China Glaze, or Essie?

Look at the first question. haha Definitely OPI.

4. When do you change your nail polish?


Usually once a week but when I’m feeling flashy, less than that. But sometimes i have a really nice colour, i keep it on for as long as possible before it starts chipping to a stage where it doesnt look good.

5. What’s your favourite colour on your nails?


Honestly speaking, i dont have a favorite. I love color so i really dont mind whichever on my nails. I do like to go for something out of the ordinary: like a strange orangey pink or a blue with purple reflects, or the “petrol” polishes… etc!

6. Darks or brights?


Both! ahah. Darks in autumn/winter, brights in spring/summer!

7. What are you wearing on your nails right this moment?


I have on Gargantuan Green Grape by OPI which is this really nice minty green color. I ADORE it!!!

8. Matte nails in or out?

Matte nails dont last! which just kills me but I LOVE the look of them on a really bright color because it makes it less loud.

9. French Manicure?

I’ve actually never had one. I’m not the biggest fan. I dont know, i just dont like them.

10.  Favourite summer colours? 

Are we there yet? and Fly by OPI. Really lovely orange and green colours. I also love pastels too but they’re better for spring! Summer is the perfect time to do brights so go for it.

Like, Comment, and Follow!!! 🙂

 

Seven Deadly Sins of Beauty Tag

1. GREED: What is your most inexpensive beauty item? What is your most expensive?

Most inexpensive: Maybelline Dream Creme Mousse in Soft plum

Most expensive: Chanel Vitalumiere Aqua in B30

2. WRATH: What beauty products do you have a love/hate relationship with? What product has been the hardest to get?

Love/hate relationship: Mac select cover up concealer: this concealer just does not work for me. It doesn’t bend well on me, it just is not nice at all.

Hardest to get: Napoleon Perdis Loose Dust in 37: I absolutely LOVE LOVE LOVE this eye shadow dust but it’s not discontinued/changed so I can’t repurchase after I use it all 😦

3. GLUTTONY: What are your most delicious beauty products?

Latte Lip Tint by LUSH

4. SLOTH: What beauty product do you neglect, due to laziness?

Eye liner, I just don’t use eye liner much because most of the time I just can’t be bothered.

5. PRIDE: What beauty product gives you the most self confidence?

Mascara. I LOVE my mascara. It opens my eyes so much and I feel so much less… squinty when I have it on. I also love my bronzer because it thins out my face and redefines my cheekbone.

6. LUST: What attributes do you find most attractive in the opposite sex?

Eyes. Mostly eyes. Having nice eyes is so important (looks wise). A nice facial structure is good. He HAS to be tall. Characteristic-wise, I like a guy who is witty and can make me laugh. He has to be knowledgeable.

7. ENVY: What items would you most like to receive as a gift?

MAC!!! I LOVE LOVE LOVE Mac! And you just can’t have too much of it.
