The Procrasinating Beauty Blogger Tag

A big thank you to the lovely Ali from Zombies Wear Eyeliner who tagged me in this! It has been a long time since I did a tag post so I thought I'd give it a whirl. This tag was created by this blogger.

1. Name a beauty regime that you rarely do.

Skincare. I am so lazy when it comes to taking care of my skin, and I know how bad that is...I keep saying that I'll start and get into a routine but I never do. Finding the right products for me is hassle, and I'd rather spend the extra five minutes it would take in the morning sleeping. The only product that I use on my skin right now is my Fade Out cream. It's so bad!

2. Is washing your make-up brushes something you do regularly?

Yes, actually! I wash them once a week. I use a lot of dark shadow and some cream products so I have to. Plus I quite enjoy washing them, which is a bit weird...

3. How long will you last with chipped nail polish?

Not very long. It drives me insane. Once one chips it has to come off. Having messy nails makes me feel dirty somehow and painting them makes me feel clean again. I don't know why!

4. How long do you put off buying/replacing a beauty or nail polish product even if you need it (i.e. purchasing a new top coat, foundation etc)?

Depends on what I have to replace, and how much is costs. If it's something like foundation/concealer/powder, then not very long. Anything else it'll take a week, or longer if it's something expensive. It took me months to replace my mascara for instance!

5. What is your worst beauty habit?

Probably my lack of skincare! Does over straightening my hair count? I straighten it twice a day sometimes. I have the craziest hair in the world and there's just no way I could ever go out without fixing it unless I wanted to look like I'd stuck my fingers in a plug socket. Unfortunately this means that my hair is incredibly dry at the ends and I'm sure it's also why it won't grow past shoulder length!

6. Name something non-beauty related that you put off doing all the time?

Everything? Right now I'm putting off research for my essay. Wittgenstein is ruining my Easter break. I'm also putting off organising my books because I know I'll want to 'do it properly' and get them all down, dust them, and put them back in alphabetical order. It takes me a whole day! I'm also putting off thinking about my dissertation next year. I'm currently in denial that I've nearly finished university and that I'm getting old.

7. When going out somewhere, do you leave getting ready until the last minute or not?

Never. If I left it until the last minute, I'd never go anywhere. I always get ready at least an hour and a half before. I have a problem with being late. I have to always be at least fifteen minutes early or I get panicky, even for lectures. I spend a lot of my time waiting around...

8. Can you commit to spending bans? 

No. If I stopped buying cosmetics, I'd buy jewellery  If I stopped buying jewellery I'd buy books. I have no self restraint at all.

9. How organised is your makeup and nail collection?

My nail collection isn't organised at all. It's in a bag and they're all upside down and all over the place. I will find a box for them at some point. My make-up is all in the top drawer of my desk. I have three boxes, one for face products, one for eyes and one for lip products. I keep all my pencils/mascaras/liners in a pen pot. I've been sorting out my room and adding a few things so I might take some photos of it at some point.

10. What is the longest amount of time you have gone without writing a blog post?

I'm not sure. Maybe a couple of weeks? When I have something that I'm really excited about I get the urge to blog about it nearly straight away so it's never very long between posts. Plus I have to do a lot of formal writing for university so blogging is a nice break!

I'm not going to tag anyone in this, so I tag all of you! Comment below if you've also done this tag, and send me a link! I will *hopefully* manage to get a few actual reviews up this week, but this essay is really draining my time. I'm going to my aunts for a few days next week so I'm trying to get as much work done as possible.

I hope you're all having a great week!


  1. I would love to see a photo of your big hair! I have poker straight hair which is fine for my bangs but I have a fascination with big wild manes. I would never straighten it if I had some volume to play with. Hehe im with you on the chipped nail polish thing. It just feels a bit trampy

    1. It's funny how we always want the opposite to what we have, isn't it? If I had naturally straight hair I'd probably want curly hair! My hair is huge normally, I'd happily swap with you!

  2. I'm the same way as you with spending bans, hah! Unfortunately I'm really bad about the chipped nail polish - I'm super lazy with my nails, and I don't paint them very often because of that! It's too bad because I love vampy dark red, purple, and black nail polish.

    1. I have no self restraint whatsoever! It's so bad.

      The only bad thing about me repainting my nails constantly is I go through polish really fast! I hate having bare nails!
