Because why not?

Getting To Know Me Tag.

9 September 2013
The wonderful Lady S over at ladysapphireblog has so kindly tagged me in the 'Getting to know me' tag and I'll so happily oblige because I want my readers to get to know me too, so without further rambling lets get in to it!

Lady S asks...

What's your favourite way to style your hair?
I always wear my hair down, I have image issues with my ears (they stick out and not evenly, one more than the other! Idiot ears), I tend to go for straight or if i have time up my sleeve I love me some curls!

What's the one movie you could re-watch over and over again?
This is a tough one because I love to re-watch movies all the time, if I had to choose one it would probably be Step Brothers, never fails to make me laugh out loud.

Do you have any pets? I wanna hear all about them!
Yes, many pets! I have a cat, her name is Little, she's a tortoiseshell/white mix. She's demanding, likes to come in and out all night long and will meow at the door for hours until you do as she tells you.
I also have 2 Rainbow Lorikeets, Max and Jessie (we assume Max is a boy and Jessie is a girl but to be sure they have to be DNA sexed and we don't have the heart to pluck feathers to find out). Max has been with us for almost a year and Jessie is still a baby, we've not even had her for 2 weeks. I believe it was love at first sight for these two, Max won't let anyone near her when we allow them to be together and he runs around all puffed up and throws his toys around to show off. Jessie is just lovely compared to Max who loves to bite and terrorise people, while we are still hand training Jessie it's so nice to know that you won't leave the encounter with holes in your skin. Max is a big talker, his current favourite phrases are 'hello', 'give me a cuddle', 'stop it', 'want some food?' and 'give me a kiss' followed by a kissing noise but that's not the limit of his vocabulary.
Finally I have Drew, a chocolate Labrador, he's HUGE! Currently in the hospital after having a seriously unfortunate accident which threatened his life, he's making a good recovery but not out of the woods yet. Silly boy likes to jump and we believe he caught his boy bit on a cast iron chair outside and has done some very serious damage. He will survive it, but may lose some/all of his..willy (for want of a better word).
Oh and I should add that the cat and birds get along fantastically.

What's on your nails right now? Nothing.. What polish is due to be applied next?
They look so horrendously disgusting right now. I applied a Sally Hanson polish about a week ago and with all the stress of the dog and working more hours to pay for his care I have neglected them. The polish started to chip and lift so I would pick at it when I was tense and some of my nails broke because I've been working outdoors with my hands a lot... Anyway, a picture tells a thousand word and since I'm trying to be open here I think you just need to see the state I've allowed them to become.

I'll be doing my nails... at some stage lol, I'll be going for Rimmel Brit Manicure in English Rose because the longevity is fantastic and I won't have to worry about them looking so shabby.

What's your favourite thing about blogging?
Blogging is my escape from the daily grind, people who are around me on a regular basis have seen how important blogging is to me and in turn have given me peace and quite while I'm doing it, I cherish the space that I get when I'm blogging and it helps me to really open up about how I feel about products, companies and the industry. Not only do I get to forget about the drama of life but I also get to play with and write about beauty products, what isn't there to love!?!

Since it is almost midnight and I'd really like to get this up before bed I'm not going to tag anyone specifically but if you are reading this and you are a blogger please consider yourself tagged, even if you've done it before! If you aren't a blogger but you're in a sharing mood, feel free to answer my questions down in the comments!

What I'd like to know..
Are you in love? Tell me the story of how you met.
What is the first thing you notice about new people you meet?
What is your favourite smell?
What is your favourite place in the whole wide world? (Apart from home, because we all know that's where the heart really is)
Do you have any special talents?
