Lipstick Tag

8 May

1. When you were a child, did you use your mother’s lipsticks?

My mom didn’t wear lipstick, but any play makeup I had I would always use.

2. How old were you when you bought your first lipstick?

I was 18, I bought a L’Oreal lipstick as part of an 80’s halloween costume.

3. Pink or red lipstick?

Pink, I only own a few reds and rarely muster up the courage to wear them.

4. The most expensive lipstick you have ever bought?

MAC lipsticks.

5. And the cheapest?

Wet ‘n Wild, ELF, or NYC lipstick.  They’re around $1, I believe.
6. What’s the most bizarre thing you have ever done with a lipstick?

I’ve only ever worn lipstick on my lips.

7. If you had to recommend a lipstick, which brand would you recommend and why?

I don’t own any lipstick other than MAC and drugstores.  I really like MAC and Revlon lipsticks.  Although I don’t own any, I also always have my eye on YSL and  Chanel lipsticks.

I want you to do the tag as well! Either do it in the comments below or in a blog post and post the link below so I can read your answers as well!

Furry Friend Tag

2 Apr

I saw someone on youtube do this tag, and because I am obsessed with my dogs I had to do this tag.  I have no shame when I say that my 2 dogs are my best friends :), they’re my boys.  I usually don’t talk much about my life on this blog, because I want to keep it mainly to fashion and beauty, but every now and again if something special happens, or my dogs are being especially awesome that day I would love to come blog about it and share it with you all!

1)What is your pets name? How did you name them?
Boo & Kicks.  When Brian got Boo from the shelter he was already named that.  Kicks we named because of his obsession with shoes and we thought it was cute!

2) What kind of pet is it and what breed?
They’re both dogs.  Boo is a Golden Retriver and Kicks is a Yorkshire Terrier.
3) How long have you had your pet friend?
Boo is Brian’s dog and he has had him since he was 2, so about 6 or 7 years.  Brian and I have lived together for almost year, so I’ve had Boo for almost a year too.   I’ve had kicks for 3 months now.
4) How did you get your pet?
Brian got Boo from a non-profit, animal organization, like a shelter.  We got Kicks from a breeder.
5) How old is your pet?
Boo is 7 or 8 (he will be 8 or 9 on April 1st) and Kicks is 5 months old.
6) What are some quirky things about your pets personality?
Boo is a huge goof, he is older but has the personality and activity of a puppy.  He is the most loving dog you will ever meet and will play tug o’ war for hours with you.  As far as being quirky, Boo loves humping (probably TMI, I know), he also has the ability to smile (and does so frequently!), and is a world-champ at chasing his tail.   Kicks loves cuddling up against shoes and sleeping on them, cuddling is probably is favorite activity, he loves wearing little t-shirts, and thinks he is King of the world (I’ve tried correcting him, but he refuses to listen!).  Other than that he is your typical puppy!
7) What does your relationship with your pet mean to you?
It means everything, I have already stated that they are my BFF’s;  I also call them my PICs (Partners-in-Crime).  However, they’re more to me than that I spend most of my day playing with them, cuddling them, and just taking care of them.  They really are like my kids, especially since I don’t think I want actual children.
8) What are some of your favorite past times with your pet?
I’ve only had Kicks for 3 months so we haven’t had time to travel the world, yet.  However, we’ve taken him to a few dog parks and to a river, which is always fun.  At our house he is very dominant and barks at anyone he sees, letting them know he owns the place.  However, at dog parks he is often right in between my legs, scared out of his mind, but he loves running around with Boo.  We’ve also taken him to all of our parents house.  My favorite activity with Kicks  though is cuddling because no matter what he always has to fall asleep on top of me, which melts my heart to pieces.  I love taking Boo to parks the most because he is so social that he loves running around with all the dogs, playing fetch, rolling around on the ground, running in the water, and chasing geese.  It can make even the most depressed person happy to watch Boo at  a park because that is when he is his happiest.
9) What are nicknames that you call your pet?
I call Boo, Boo-Boo almost all of the time.  I usually call Kicks my Love Bug.  Other than that I’ll call them both monsters (they love causing trouble!) and other random names I come up with spur of the moment!

Do you have any pets?  I would love for you to do this tag, either in the comments below, or on your blog, and link it so I can see your cute pets!
