Searching for "get to know me"

Get to Know Me: The Beauty Blogger Tag!

I haven’t posted in such a long time so I thought – why not do another tag? This one was inspired by my friend, Natasha, who recently did an introduction/get to know me post! Since I’m too lazy to create my own questions, I did a quick google search which resulted in numerous bloggers answering the questions below.

1. Is your hair naturally curly or straight?

Curly – not the pretty type, my hair turns into a complete frizz ball if I don’t use a dozen products to tame it!

2. Do you dye it yourself or go to a salon?

Gray hair began to grow when I was 16 so since then I’ve done henna rinses at home. Henna gives a nice burgundy shade to my hair and lessens the frizz!

3. Do you wear the same style everyday or switch it up?

I tend to wear it the same 70% of the time but like to straighten my hair every now and then.

4. How often do you change your nail polish?

If you asked me anytime prior to last year, the answer would be weekly but recently I’ve been picking my nails so much, there’s no point in painting them. Hopefully, I get my act together soon and this anxiety in my diminishes – I miss my long nails and playing with different shades!

5. Do you do your own mani/pedi or go to a salon?

I tend to do my own nails and only head to the salon for big events such as weddings!


6. Do you polish your toes in the winter or just the summer?

Usually during the summer – I rarely wear open toed shoes during any other season so I tend to just use a clear polish/strong nail on my toes.

7. How long does it take to do your makeup?

If it’s for daily work, about 10 minutes since I only use primer, foundation/BB cream, highlighter, and lipstick. If I’m going out for fun I usually take about half an hour, and for big events it’s usually a lot longer!

8. What do you do first – face or eyes?

Always my face unless I’m using an eyeshadow that has a ton of fallout! I’m always paranoid I’ll mess up my eye makeup if I apply foundation last.


9. Do you collect makeup or just buy when you need it?

If you follow me on Instagram or know me in real life you know I collect an unnecessary amount of makeup! I love to try the latest things and have swatchfests on Instagram and Snapchat (omgitsprii)!

10. How often do you wear false eyelashes?

Never! I’ve never felt the need to wear them and have never been drawn to trying them out because my lashes are naturally long and I wear glasses on a daily basis.

11. Do you do a full face of makeup everyday?

No, I have an administrative career so my daily makeup is very basic – but that’s completely okay with me, I can’t imagine spending so much time and effort on makeup on a daily basis! I’d be exhausted.

12. Do you wear makeup when you’re home or with your family?

Most times I’ll throw on a BB or CC cream, lipstick, and highlighter if I’m with family but I typically don’t apply makeup when I’m home alone or with my mom.


13. Will you leave the house without makeup?

It depends – if it’s small errands I have to do around town then no but other than that, I do usually put makeup on even if it’s just some foundation + highlight.


14. How many high end products do you have?

Too many to keep track of! I’m horrible and go to Sephora and Ulta almost every week and stalk their website often to see if there are any new products out/deals! Also, I’m not sure if it’s because I’m more aware of sales or if all the brands are providing discounts more often, but I usually buy new products – high end/drugstore/indie cosmetics a few times a month. I can’t say no to great deals!

15. Do you plan your OOTD every night or when you’re getting dressed?

Rarely! I’m too lazy to plan outfits ahead of time.

16. How often do you change your handbag?

Ooooh..I’d say every few weeks! I love switching up my handbag based on what size or color I’m feeling to carry!

17. What time do you wake up and go to sleep?

I’m usually in bed by 11 but it takes me an hour or two to actually fall asleep and I wake up anywhere from 6-9AM depending on the day!

18. How often do you work out?

NEVER. I’m so bad about this but I can never get myself to go to the gym or go for walks. I even live right next door to the gym!! You’d think that would be a sign but nope.

19. Left handed or right?

Right!

20. How tall are you?

5’3”

21. What languages do you speak?

English, Gujarati, a bit of Spanish and some Hindi.

22. How many pets do you have?

Zero 🙁

23. Do you read comments posted on your blog?

Always! I love interacting with my readers!

24. How often do you blog?

Right now I seem to be publishing a post once a month but I am hoping to change that. I’d really love to get into the habit of posting once a week, even 2-4 times a week!


25. Do you keep a list of products to try as you see other bloggers’ posts?

Yes! I have a list on my phone that has products/brands to for me to check out! I’m really into indie cosmetics at the moment so I have a huge list of companies I want to try out!


26. How did you come up with your blog name?

I was playing with words and wanted to come up with something that wasn’t only relative to beauty since I like incorporating lifestyle posts here as well. Plus, I had a couple of friends who helped me out!


27. What kind of camera do you use for your photographs?

I use my iphone 6! I really want to purchase a camera in the near future but I have tons of research to do before I commit to anything pricey like that!

28. How often do you clean your house?

Weekly!


29. What’s your favorite color?

Pink but burgundy is a close second!


30. Do you swear?

Yes, I have quite the potty mouth 😛

31. What are you doing with the rest of your day?

I have this scheduled to publish on Friday night so I will probably be watching some NCIS and playing around with some new makeup!

I hope you all enjoyed this and learned something new about me! I have some first impressions, reviews, and other types of posts coming up (soon hopefully)!

Easy Homemade Vegetarian Pizza

Pizza is one of my all time favorite foods, especially homemade pizza! And let me tell you, it is one of the EASIEST things I’ve made. If you follow me on Instagram or Twitter, you know we make pizza nearly twice a month, sometimes even more often,  so I thought it was finally time to share a recipe with you all!

Easy Homemade Vegetarian Pizza

This pizza is perfect for that weekend pick me up, parties and get togethers! One thing we like to do when we’re making pizza for group settings is make the crusts the morning of or the night before so all we need to do is add the sauce, cheese and toppings and stick it in the oven! If you do this, be sure to cover all the crusts in a bag or foil. I like storing them in pillow cases to keep them fresh!
