Get to Know Me!

I figured I should add more content than just about Avon. This is something I have meaning to do. I will admit, at the time I am writing this, that I am a noob blogger and should have planned out blogs a lot better. Now that I know more about blogs. Eventually I plan on writing a series on starting a blog. Yes, this is something can can be found in so many places on the internet but now that I look at it, many bloggers do this so they don’t leave anyone wondering how that did it. I want to note ahead of time that the links provided I am not an affiliate for and so I will not make any commission if you click on them.

Now, on to the subject of this post. Me. I am not one to go on about herself. At least I try not to. I feel if I do that it will be figuratively similar to the scene in The Breakfast Club where the Basket-case dumped out her purse in front of everyone. And the others were speechless and sort of picked at her things. Still, I found a list of questions asked of bloggers for their audience about who they are as a person. And since this is a beauty blog, most of the questions are about that general topic. On wards!

Let’s Play 20, No Wait, Thirty Questions

  • Is your hair naturally curly or straight?

It’s slightly wavy but mostly straight. It’s also fine and I have a lot of it.

  • Do you dye your hair at home or go to a salon?

I haven’t dyed my hair at home for a while. Not sure when the last time I did it was but I noticed I was starting to collect a lot of very fine silver hair. The real kind. Not those thick stiff white hairs. So, it’s really happening. Not many can see it but there is a pic of me where you can see it very well. I’ll have to share it some time. Other than that I have always done it at home and started when I was 15.

  • Do you have the same style everyday or switch it up?

Sigh. Well I am just a natural go-to kind of girl for a true messy bun. I don’t even brush right away in the morning and just pile it up and continue on with my morning. But if I have to go somewhere, it’s either down or in a high pony tail. The only time I really do my hair now is for pictures for the blog or for my videos on my Facebook business page.

  • How often do you change your nail polish?

I don’t wear nail polish. My nails are naturally oily and so it comes off far too easy. I do do them once in a while and am thinking of starting to do them on the regular. I noticed in my videos that my fingers are sorely plain.

  • Do you do at-home mani-pedi’s or go to the salon?

The last time I had a mani was back in high school. LOL And my mom did it. I got French tips.

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

Last time I wear polish on my toes was over a year ago. I didn’t even attempt to take it off months later. I just let my toes nails grow out and I trimmed them. They have bumps and so it’s hard to really get them to look nice. Maybe I should invest in some nice acrylic toenails.

  • How long does it take for you to do your face?

That is a loaded question, my friend. It depends on if I planned it or not. Most of the time I do just eyeliner. I don’t like being seen without it since I have trichotillomania. Which is a hair pulling disorder. Luckily it’s just with the eyelashes. Though TBH I used to do it on my legs but that was 20 years ago. So, 3 mins there. Now if I have to go out and it’s not a big deal. I will do my eyebrows, eyeliner, sometimes my Avon Magix Tinted Moisturizer in Light/Med and use a translucent powder to seal. 5 mins for that. But for videos and pictures, I never times it but maybe 45 minutes to an hour because I tend to look up eye-shadow looks and follow steps to get that look.

  • Which do you do first, face or your eyes?


  • Do you collect makeup or just buy when you need it?

Used to be I bought it when I need it but I have now started to collect.

  • How often do you wear falsies?

Not as often as I would like. I buy mine at RedCherry. The ones I have are Penny 501 in Black.

  • Do you do a full face of makeup everyday?

Gosh no. LOL I have a very busy life so when I do I full face it’s planned out ahead of time.

  • Do you wear makeup at home and/or around family?

At home, only for the blog and videos. Around family, sometimes but mostly eyeliner.

  • Will you leave the house without makeup?

I have. But I prefer to wear at least eyeliner and sometimes I use my Brow Mascara because it’s quick and looks most natural than filling them in.

  • How many high end products do you own?

Oh, gosh. I was thinking about this last night. I would say 2. One is the Trophy Skin RejuvedermMD Microdermabrasion On-The-Go. Now I didn’t buy it, it was given to me. And also NeriumAD Age-Defying Treatment. Also, given to me. I don’t really use either of them bus sometimes I do.

  • Do you plan your OOTD every night or when you get dressed?

Every once in a while I plan. If there’s something big coming up. Though recently I have decided to start doing it because my middle child goes through clothes really fast and I do so much laundry because of that. I’m hoping to get a system going for everyone in the house. If it helps to decrease laundry and make clothes last longer between washes then I am call for it.

  • How often do you change your handbag?

Generally twice a year. I have one for summer and one for winter. I do have several bags and recently donated most of them. Sometimes I will pull out one that suits what might be going on on a particular day.

  • What is your wake up time and bedtime?

I have a mixed form of insomnia. Sometimes I can’t control it. The whole issue started about two or three years ago. But I am actively trying to make my bed time 8 PM and wake-up time 5 Am because this fall I will be returning to college after many many years and considering how transportation will be I have to plan accordingly.

  • Do you work out? If so, how often?

I need to get back into it as I do have back issues that cause severe spasms that leave me unable to breath deeply. I do recommend, as I will be starting it again soon, Ashley Conrad’s 21-Day Clutch Cut . The videos can be found in full on YouTube. The program will make you so sore and very few weights are required so it’s something you can do at home.

  • Left-handed or right-handed?

Left-handed for writing and right-handed for everything else.

  • What languages do you speak?

American English though I know a tiny bit of Spanish and am learning French. I am hoping to become a polyglot.

  • Do you have any pets? If so, how many?

One pet for now. He is a black cat named Ulysses Bynx. Named after the former Civil War General/Former President of the US and the cat from Hocus Pocus.

  • How often do you blog?

Not as often as I should but recently I have really gotten into updating this whole website. I hope to be more proactive.

  • Do you keep a list of products to try?


  • How did you come up with your blog name?

I really don’t know. LOL

  • What camera do you use for your pictures?

My Android. It’s an LG but I forget what model.

  • How often do you clean?

My house? I have a daily, weekly, monthly, quarterly, semi-annually, once a year (for the landlord inspections), and annually cleaning list. So… a lot.

  • Do you swear?

Yes. I try not to. And It’s not as bad as it could be.

  • What was your favorite subject in school?

English, art, and history.

  • What’s your sign?


  • What does your day look like?

Well, I hope to add more to the website. I did some cleaning today. I am waiting on a phone call but I am not banking on it just in case. I also need to get a hold of the college, pick up meds, attend an Avon meeting that’s held every two weeks and maybe I’ll get to put in some time to crochet and later watch more Supernatural so I can be caught up.

  • Why Did you start Avon?

I started Avon, again, because I am a stay at home single mom who takes care of two of my youngest. One is disabled and is 24/7 care. I missed having a paycheck and interacting with people.

  • Why did you start a blog/website?

I started because I figured it was a good way to get out to more people. The way Avon reps now market to people has changed a lot since the last time I was a rep. I am used to D2D and P2P. I still do P2P but people are wary of D2D because now it’s possible it’s not legit. I live in Idaho and now in order to do D2D you have to have an issues card and I am not sure how that would work for an Avon Rep.

That was a lot of questions. If you have any others, please leave them in the comments below!
