6 Year Blogiversary Update

Ask Me Anything

Last month I mentioned in my 6 Year Blogiversary post that if I got enough questions I’d follow up with the answers. I know I mentioned the possibility of a video follow up, but that isn’t going to happen. I must have made a dozen videos and cringed through every single one of them. I thought weeding through hundreds of selfies was tough to do. Well, watching myself on video was tougher. In the end I just couldn’t do it. I’m sorry. Maybe one day I’ll have one too many margaritas and give it another go. Until then here are the answers to your questions!

Do you like “the dong”?
Hahaha! I know who asked this. Yes. Yes I do.

Why don’t you try YouTube out.
You know, I get asked this a lot! From family and friends. At some point I actually considered it because I thought it was what the people wanted. But you know what? It’s not what I want. I’m a blogger. I love to write. It’s who I am.

What’s your favorite and your least favorite makeup brand??
I would have to say ColourPop. They’re easily both my favorite and least favorite brand. They have so many great products and offer them at such an affordable price. They aren’t afraid of color. They do some pretty interesting collabs. I feel like they’re always keeping things interesting with the new product launches. The downside? They’ve hurt me on numerous occasions. I can’t even tell you how many times I’ve received broken products and have had to reach out to customer service only to be be given the run around. Thankfully I haven’t had any issues lately. But you never forget the ones who have hurt you.

What are your top 3 favorite lip products?
It Cosmetics Je Ne Sais Quoi Lip Treatment

Besides your makeup blog, what other hobbies do you have?
Besides my blog I love to cook. Baking specifically. I would bake every single day if I wasn’t so tempted to eat the stuff I bake. I also love walking. I know it sounds lame, but I have a lot of fun going for walks. Sometimes I’ll talk and vent my way through it and other times I’ll just walk quietly admiring the scenery. There are also a few games I like to play on my phone.

If you could go shopping with anyone, dead or alive, who would it be?
This is a really good question! I would have to say my husband. Probably not the most exciting answer, but he’s my number one choice. Sometimes I like to venture off on my own and will call him to meet up when I’m done. And he doesn’t get offended that I’d rather be alone. On the times I could use a little help he’s always there to help me weigh out the pros and cons. And he’ll convince me to get the thing I’m eying.

If I had to choose another person it would have to be my best friend. We’ve never even met in person, but we’ve been friends for well over a decade! We do have a lot of fun online shopping together. So I just know we’d have a blast shopping together in person.

What’s your favorite beverages?
Coffee! Margaritas. COFFEE! Tea.

Tell me something I might be surprised to know about you.
I’m not really sure what would be surprising to you. I do have quite the potty mouth. I suppose that might be surprising to people who don’t know me personally. I try to keep things clean around here.

You have 2 chins!
Not really a question, but ok. Yes I do. I believe I mentioned that a few posts back.

I’m actually surprised that there was only one negative comment/remark. I was warned not to do this because it would attract the trolls, but I thought it would be a fun way for you to get to know me a little better. Well, I hope you learned something new!
