Tagging's illegal, kids. And messy.

What's this? What's this? There's tags everywhere!
I'll never be good at manipulating Nightmare Before Christmas lyrics, my apologies.

This is one hell of a good tag, great for getting to know your fellow bloggers more than you normally would through their posts. Mia tagged me in this and I'm so grateful she wrote some really good questions I haven't actually had the chance to answer on my blog before, so here goes!

1. What's your favourite trend at the moment?
I'm absolutely loving that studs are finally back in! Not that I haven't worn them most of my life anyway, but it's nice to see I can get hold of beautiful studded things on the high street!

2. What is your favourite shade of lipstick?
Has to be red. A gorgeous red will keep me happy forever, just like the Revlon lip butter in Candy Apple, which I'm using obsessively at the moment.

3. What beauty product do you regret purchasing most?
Probably blusher. I'm afraid I just don't use it. Cardinal sin of blogging, I'm sure, but I just don't like looking embarrassed on purpose.

4. Can you tell us your biggest fashion faux pas?
Wearing bright blue flared jeans for the majority of my teenage years. Oh lordy, what was I thinking? My fashion sense is always 30 years behind - I wore 70s flares in the 2000s and now I'm into the 80s punk in the 2010s...

5. What is your poison?
Yeah, you should've expected me to quote Alice Cooper there...
My poison's Dr Pepper. I'm not really an alcohol drinker unless I'm forced down the SU bar with friends, in which case my poison is a vodka and coke. If I'm rolling in the money, then it's Disaronno and coke. If I'm in the pub in my area that does amazing cocktails, then it's an Electric Smurf for me.

6. How long on average does it take you to get ready?
Too bloody long. Let's just say I take 2 hours for both my hair and makeup, leaving me approximately 10 seconds to choose an outfit and leave the house. It makes 9am lectures pretty traumatic, as I get up at half 5.

7. Tea or coffee?
Neither, I'm not a hot drink drinker! Although Starbucks' frappuccinos are divine. So it's a grande coffee frappuccino with whipped cream for me, thanks :)
And no, they can't spell my name in Starbucks.

Even when I gave the name Voldemort, they couldn't spell it. I fear for humanity.

8. What are your opinions on surgery?
I'm deathly afraid of needles so it's not for me personally. I've got nothing against anyone who has surgery to a reasonable extent, I just get a bit jealous that they look better than me!

9. Do you have/want tattoos?
Oh I'd love so many tattoos but I'm so scared of needles. I have to brave it this year though, as one of my resolutions was to finally get my tattoo of Ryan Dunn.

10. Do you prefer statement shoes or a statement bag?
Definitely statement bag. I feel so much better when I have a gorgeous bag on my shoulder. I could live in plain black wedges and not feel like I'm missing out on anything!

11. Do you have a favourite part of 2012?
I'd have to say Download festival. Best weekend of my life, seeing my lifelong idol Ozzy Osbourne a few feet away from me. I was in absolute heaven.

See the big screen on the left? I was just by the barrier in front of it. I'm sure you can see me from here.

Now the question - who do I tag? Well, I tag everyone! I love these questions so if you do this tag, please drop me a little link!

  1. I must say those people from Starbucks and in my case, Coffee Bean has serious hearing troubles. I go by the nickname "DNA" so I wanted them to write it on my drink, instead, I get "CMA" oh dear.. nice post!
