20 Questions Tag

So I wasn't tagged, but this seemed fun!

1. Things you cannot leave the house without:
Oh gosh, theres about three things. But the number 1 thing would be money for sure. I have this weird idea that incase I get stranded and I need to get home by a taxi, I would need money to call for one. Next would be my purse because well, it holds my life in it! Seriously!

2. Favourite brand of Make Up:
I used to not have a favourite, but lately it's been all about MAC. I'm trying to focus on MAC instead of other brands because i'm kind of OCD like that. I love the packaging in my collection to look the same.. weird right?

3. Favourite flower:
I absolutely hate roses. They remind me of old people and funerals. I adore happy flowers, like daisies, but when my dad gets me flowers, he always gets me lillies, so thats a special flower for me :)

4. Favourite clothing store:
I love American Apparel because the clothes are so plain, but they look so chic when you combine them with other pieces of your wardrobe to create your perfect look. I love H&M too, great clothes at great prices. And American Eagle has great jean shorts, I love them!

5. Favourite perfume:
I go through phases. I love my Mrs. Dior Cherie, currently.

6. Heels or Flats:
Flats, sadly. I love heels in the house, but if I wear them out, people would think i'm nuts.

7. Do you make good grades:
Yes, especially in the classes I enjoy! The only class I have ever failed in high school is math. I hate math with a passion. It's annoying! I just can't stand it, seriously. It's so hard for me. I just don't like how it can always be different.

8. Favourite colours:
I love pink, lavender, taupes, beiges.

9. Do you drink energy drinks:
I drink Red Bull on occasion, but I don't make it a habit.

10. Do you drink juice:
Yes! I love juice. Apple juice is great, and i only drink freshly squeezed orange juice. I hate the concentrated taste if it's not freshly squeezed.

11. Do you like swimming:
I love swimming. I feel so peaceful under the water, like you cant hear anything. And when you look up from under the water and you see the sun, is one of the best feelings in the world.

12. Do you eat fries with a fork:
Oddly enough, sometimes I do!

13. Favourite moisturiser:
I love the Nivea one. I don't know the name.

14. Do you want to get married later on in life:
Yes, I do! I am a hopeless romantic and I just want to get swept off my feet.. Im single now though, and i'm not worried, i have time!

15. Do you get mad easily:
It depends with whom. I have no patience for stupidity. AT ALL.

16. Are you into ghost hunting:
But of course~ No, im kidding. Im scared of ghosts.

17. Any phobias -
Apparently, Im scared of 72 common phobias. Im petrified of spiders, all insects, anything unknown, death, and the list goes on!

18. Do you bite your nails:
YES :( Im trying to stop real hard now, since I saw the new China Glaze Collection.

19. Have you ever had a near death experience:
Not really , I was chased by a donkey in Greece?

20. Do you drink coffee -
I looooove coffee.

My Birthday Wishlist

Hey Dolls,

So my birthday is August 4th, which is in 38 days and I am so excited. In my house it seems that when it's someone's birthday, they rule the roost. We basically do whatever they want, or whatever I want, which is great for me. Being a Leo, I adore control and power, so being the queen every year on August 4th, is probably why I loooove birthdays. I've said this before, but I think that I live for birthdays. I especially love other peoples birthdays, I love sending cards (Lorraine, yours will be sent soon!) and giving presents, just as much as I love recieving them. So following in Lorraine's (TheCurrentCustom) footsteps, I have decided to do my birthday wishlist. Now keep in mind, this is a wishlist and I can guarantee you that I will not be getting everything, for sure.

1. I'm absolutely dying for a new Juicy Couture purse. I realize that Juicy isn't the most prestigous brand out there, but I have this weird thought (maybe obsession?) that people who saw me carrying a higher brand would assume it's fake. I hate when people assume things about me, because honestly, they really dont know me, or what I carry. That being said, I dont want to spend a lot on a purse, because I still want other things,right?

So I saw this amazing Juicy Couture Leather Purse. It's amazing and totally my style it's girly but tough at the same time. I can't find it online, but I love it, and since it's number 1, im about 96% sure i'll be getting it!

2. MAC Brushes

Mommy & Daddy I only want two (max three) brushes from you.. the 134 and the 227

^ The 134 is the big powder brush, and the 227 is the brush that is under the silver handle ^

And this just came to mind, the 182. Yes, the Kabuki. Because I actually don't have one :/

For some reason, I really want to make all of my brushes MAC. I know this will cost me a lot, but if each month I make it a mission to purchase at least 1 or 2 brushes, I should get there soon! I just love the quality and they make my makeup SO much better!

3. GHD Straightener: Basically my Bella straightener broke because it's ceramic and I drop it SO much. So yeah.

That's pretty much all the objects I want, and from my extended family I know I'll get money since they don't really know what to get me, and I don't really want them choosing my makeup, thank you very much..

Thanks for reading, what's on your birthday lists?

Love always,

Share the Love -- Blog Edition

Hi Dolls,

So I decided that instead of doing a "Share the Love" video on my youtube channel for other beauty video makers, i'll be doing a "Share the Love" for my favorite beauty bloggers! So lets get started! I don't think that the wonderful and beautiful beauty bloggers get enough attention, so I think that everyone who was a blog should do this , and share the love!

I love this blog! Laura updates her blog so often and has amazing topics. She has swatches, tutorials and great tips!

Ashley does an amazing job of updating her blog with great hauls, pictures, swatches and just plain updates! I love reading her blog because she makes it interesting. It's not just another blog post, it's FUN to read! And isn't she gorgeous?!

This is such a fun blog! Chelsea incorporates her life into her blogs and her haul posts and her beauty regrets are my favorite posts! I also love how she takes pictures of everything , so we're never left guessing what the product looks like!

I love Kelly! She's so sweet and peppy in all of her videos and her blog totally showcases her personality! She updates her blog frequently, and it's so fun to read! She also takes pictures of the products, which for some reason, I seem to really like on blogs!

Before she was hacked (I hate that company) she was one of my favorite YouTubers! She is still one of my favorite YouTubers but she doesn't have any videos up! We miss you Court! Her blog is great and she definetley deserves to have some love shared with her! She had blog contests and overall she has a wonderful blog!

I love Ashley's videos and blogs! She's one of my favorite YouTubers and she's so sweet! She doesn't update her blog that often but when she does, she does it so good! Everyone , go follow her!

I just love her blog! She posts so many great pictures of her tutorials and she is so talented! I love her fish tutorial! Everyone needs to go check the fish tutorial out, it's breathtaking!

I think i'll do this more often :)

Thanks for reading!

love, Allie
