A Small Survey

I've been tagged by Bubblistyle to complete this little survey so here it goes...
blusher or bronzer - blush! I'm already pretty tan on my own so no bronzer for this gal.
lip gloss or lip stick - None really. A red lip if I'm feeling sassy ;)
 eye liner or mascara - eye liner, still working on perfecting that cat eye.
foudation or concealer - concealer thank you very much! My skin marks really easily so I feel like I am endlessly trying to cover up disaster areas on my face. Hrmph.
neutral or colour eye shadow - None. Although I did have a brief flirtation with sparkly purple eye shadow in middle school D:
pressed or loose eye shadow - None. I guess pressed, though.
brushes or sponges - Fingers.

opi or china glaze - I'm not really a naipolish purist, out of the two I've only tried OPI so I guess I pick that.
long or short - Very short! Long nails make me feel uncomfortable (even just looking at them on other people).
acrylic or natural - Barf @ acrylic
brights or darks - Don't matter, more often than not I don't wear nail polish.

perfume or body splash - Hmmm...tricky. My favorite scent is a roll on mix of essential oils called Egyptian Goddess (I know). But the new Chloe perfum and D&G L'Imperatrice (which is a very light, eau de toilette) are up there for me.
lotion or body butter - Aveeno body lotion or Nivea.
body wash or soap - Body wash, especially those that smell like brown sugar.
lush or other bath company - Lush is pretty good, can't deny. Their buffy bar will leave you with the softest skin ever. Not even a lie.

jeans or sweat pants - Jeans. Levi's. Skinny.
long sleeve or short - Short sleeve, although it doesn't really matter.
dresses or skirts - Dresses are the easiest way to look put together without thinking very much about what you're going to wear.
stripes or plaid - Can't choose. Won't choose.
flip flops or sandals - I guess sandals although I don't own any!
scarves or hats - I wear hats more than scarves although I have quite the scarf collection.
studs or dangly earrings - Chandeliers but I rarely wear earrings.
necklaces or bracelets - I have very thin wrists so bracelets slide ride off. I'd wear them more if I could find some in smaller sizes, I think they're an underrated accessory.
heels or flats - FLATS FOREVER. I've never been one to wear heels.
cowboy boots or riding boots - Riding boots I guess, ankle length is superior though. Or combat.
jacket or hoodie - Both serve their functions. Hoodies for not caring and jackets for when you do.

curly or straight - Wavey.
bun or ponytail - High bun on top of my head.
bobby pins or butterfly clips - bobby pins, perfect for getting the milk maid braid down pat!
hair spray or gel- ugh at any hair products, I guess hair spray when it's really necessary.
long or short - Long but i'm getting the itch to cut my hair again :X
light or dark - Dark
side sweep bangs or full bangs - If you do full bangs, you can easily sweep them to the side--best of both worlds!
up or down - Both!

rain or shine - Shine, I'm from southern California after all!
summer or winter- Summer, although winter here can also feel summer like.
fall or spring - Fall! Every year I romanticize fall and hey, my birthday is technically in the fall (September 22!)
chocolate or vanilla- Chocolate, extra dark.

All photos by my talented (and insanely cute) boyfriend, Grant! Check out his BLOG for more ;)

    Embracing Style

  2. I have really small wrists too. You should look for antique bracelets... they seem to fit me the best.

  3. these pics of you are gorgeous, that first one is stunning!

  4. your boyfriend is a very talented photographer! love the ones you've chosen (:


  5. You are so stunning! Love this post!

  6. I have to say... as I was reading I agreed with just about everything! I do like a low-fuss approach to life. And isn't it annoying about the size of bracelets? They always fly off the second I raise my hand...

    We were actually dreaming of driving our beetle from Mexico to Vancouver last year, but everything was so chaotic at the end we just sold it and left. I think it would have been one uncomfortable journey anyway!

  7. very very cool photos. nice survey and i use concealer too, coz i think using foundation is way too much of a hassle. :D


  8. Great photos! I would like to have my own Grant. :)
    "This or that" - it is nice idea. I will "steal" and try it with my polish blog friends. :) May I? :)

What's up?

*Had to turn word verification on (even though I personally hate it). I've been getting too many weird spambot comments lately :(
