Another Tag, You Say?

Yes, indeed, dear readers,

Today's post is another tag! I found this one on the ever-popular Elle and Blair website. This is the 32 Question Tag. Well, strictly speaking, it has 33 questions, so whoever titled it hopefully doesn't have a day job as an accountant or banker. 

Here goes:

  • Is it cute when guys kiss you on your forehead? I suppose it's cute. Personally, though, I feel like I might get annoyed. That's just me, though.

  • A big poofy dress or a short party dress? Well I don't like wearing super short dresses, but I would definitely have more occasions to wear a short party dress than a big poofy dress.
  • Are diamonds a girl's best friend? Not to the extent that they replace friends, but yes, they are indeed a girl's best friend. This isn't to say that I wear them routinely. I'm not even sure I own any.
  • Is your hair up or down today? It's down. The only time it's not down is generally when I'm having a horrible hair day or when I'm working out.
  • Do you straighten your hair? Very rarely. I'll straighten it probably a few times a year, five or six at the most, I'd guess.
  • Favorite mascara? If you've read my blog before, you'll know that mascara is hardly a necessity in my life. It darkens my lashes a bit, but I haven't found one that actually makes it look like I'm wearing mascara. Nothing really makes a difference, but right now I have a sample of Clinique High Impact Mascara in black. Honestly, no mascara is my favorite at this point.
  • Do you get your nails done? I've only gotten my nails done once, and I really prefer doing it myself. Something about someone else cutting and filing my nails and painting them just really doesn't appeal to me at all. My polish always lasts longer when I paint it myself, anyway.
  • Small or large purses? I love all sizes, but personally I need a large one for all the junk I carry!
  • Jeans or sweats? Jeans. Sweats make me feel sloppy but are much more comfortable, so I only wear them when working out or going on a grocery run. Jeans make me feel much more put together.
  • Do you wear clothes/shoes/jewelry that's uncomfortable? Not generally. I mean my shoes are never comfortable after walking in them for a while, but they're comfy until then. So I suppose I do wear cute, uncomfortable shoes when it comes to actually walking long distances in them.
  • Do you text message a lot? I actually don't have texting [SHOCKER] I always call.
  • Whats your favorite color? Aqua is my main favorite, but also blues, greens, and pink. 
  • Heels or flats? I love ballet flats. They just look so classy and are appropriate for more occasions, in my opinion. However, I do love the way heels make my legs look.
  • Would you ever leave the house without makeup on? Only if I'm going outside to work out or if I'm going on a trip to the grocery store. Otherwise, I have to wear at least some concealer and lipstick. And chances are I always go out with undereye concealer even if I wear nothing else, in order to avoid the crater look.
  • Walmart or Target? Target. Without a doubt. My best friend and I will actually go there as a destination and spend hours searching the store. We're exciting people.
  • Do you think lip gloss is the best!? I'm not as into wearing gloss as I used to be, so I actually think lipstick is the best, but lip gloss still holds a special place in my heart.
  • Do you own any big sunglasses? One really cheap and junky Coach imitation that I never wear. My good sunglasses are medium sized. 
  • How long does it take you to get ready in the morning? Usually somewhere around an hour, but that's including the fact that it takes me 15 minutes to get out of bed, and I generally don't pick out my clothes the night before. If I do pick them out, it's just in my head and they aren't prepared. I also shower at night. Not surprising that I'm always running late.
  • Gold or silver? I really like both. Silver probably suits my skin tone better, but I'm so white that I can pull off both relatively well.
  • Do you like to wear dresses? Yes! I used to never wear them, and now I want to wear them all the time. Too bad I only own a few.
  • In the last 48 hours have you hung out with a guy? My brother!
  • Do you like to hold hands? Sure!
  • What do you notice when you first meet a guy? His eyes and smile, I suppose. I mean I obviously notice body type as well, but as far as things that attract my attention, that would be it on the immediate impression.
  • Do you like making eye contact? I love it! It's actually an inside joke with one of my best friends. I'm not going to bother explaining it. I do apologize.
  • Would you kill for chocolate? Not literally.
  • On a scale from 1-10 how fun is shopping? When I'm shopping for jeans or bras, or work pants it's a negative 10. If it's for fun, then a 10.
  • Do you yell a lot? Only to the elderly customers who can't hear me at work. Generally I just yell when I'm angry or to avoid being interrupted when I'm trying to prove a point.
  • Do you wear sweatpants/pajamas to school/work? Never.
  • Have you ever dressed unlike yourself to impress a guy? Nope.
  • What makeup could you not live without? Undereye concealer and lipstick.
  • Do you fall in love easily? Not at all.
  • Do you have cramps? Not right now. I don't get them too often.
  • Do you think you have the bestest friend ever? Yes indeed. I have a fabulous group of friends, and my best friends are the best!

  • Hope you enjoyed this little tag! I'd love to see any of you do it.

    1. I am super jealous that you don't need to use mascara!!!! I could never get away with it :(

    2. I'm sure there's some miracle mascara out there that will actually do something for me one day! And I'm jealous of your ability to pull off red hair. x

    3. It's because I'm very fair naturally LOL. My natural hair color is dark blonde, and I have no (visible) eyebrows and eyelashes. On the bright side, I can do flapper look pretty easily, don't have to conceal my eyebrows.

    4. It's probably the combination of hair and skin color. I'm just as pale, but because my hair's so dark I could never pull off that kind of red. I embrace the darkness though. lol
