Getting to know me tag


with my blog being in the very early stages and already receiving a lovely following from you guys I thought it might be nice to tell you a bit more about me.

  1. Is your hair naturally curly or straight? curly and I spend hours straightening it most days. Us ladies are never satisfied with what we have!
  2. Do you dye it yourself or go to a salon? I Visit the salon every 6-8 weekd to have my highlights done.
  3. Do you wear the same style everyday, or do you change it?I change my style all the time from pretty dresses and styled hair to trackies, t-shirts and hair tided up.
  4. Do you do your own mani/pedi or go to a salon? I LOVE getting my nails done, but I don’t get them done very often.
  5. How often do you change your nail polish?I usually have paint free nails unless there is a special occasion or a holiday.
  6. Do you polish your toes in the winter or just the summer? Nope, just in summer.
  7. How long does it take for you to put on makeup?I can manage my day to day makeup in about 10 minutes, that what happens when you have children! I do spend more time if I can or if I am going out.
  8. What do you do first? Face or eyes?  face, always my face first.
  9. Do you collect makeup or just buy what you need when you need it?  As a beauty reviewer I have a real collection of make-up, a girl can never have too many lip sticks.
  10. How often do you wear false eyelashes? Never.
  11. Do you do a full face of makeup everyday? most days I do, but if I am having a chill out day with my boys at home then no.
  12. Do you wear makeup when you’re home alone or with family?  not always, I like to give my skin time to breath so it’s usually just a swipe of mascara.
  13. Will you leave the house without makeup? Yeah if I need to. Although I always have it handy so I can apply it in record time if I need to.
  1. How many high-end products do you have? I am very lucky that I work with some high end brands for my blog and the magazines I write for so at the moment I have a lot.
  2. Do you plan your OOTD every night or decide when you’re getting dressed? I like to plan the night before so I have more time to sped with my children at breakfast instead of planning the days outfit.
  3. How often do you change your handbag?  oooo I love handbags and have a mini collection going on so I can change my bag to suit my outfit or my mood.
  4. What time do you wake up and go to sleep?  I usually work late into the evening and go to bed att 11-12 and then I am up with the children between 6:30-7. I would love more sleep!
  5. How often or when do you workout? I go through phases where I will work out every day for a while and then not work out at all for months. Not the best way to do it.
  6. Left handed or right handed?right
  7. How tall are you? 5,2
  8. Do you speak any foreign languages? I can speak a tiny bit of german.
  9. How many pets do you have? none
  10. How often are you on WordPress?  every other day, at least.
  11. Do you read comments posted on blogs? always
  12. Do you keep a list of products to try as you see other posts?no but I really should.
  13. How did you come up with your blog name? it took ages as my first couple of choices were already gone. strawberrys are my favourite fruit and I liked the idea of a strawberry fountain, so it just stuck.
  14. What kind of camera do you use for your photographs? at the moment I use the camera on my I phone but I am researching good cameras as I really want a new one.
  15. What’s your favourite colour? pink or purple or maybe baby blue. hmm tough question.
  16. Do you swear?As a teacher and a mother I try not to, but it usually comes out when I am drunk.
  17. What are you doing with the rest of your day?Taking my baby swimming and then waiting for his brother to come home from a trip out with his nanny and for my husband to return from his lads weekend so we can have a family movie night.

    From reading this we’ve got a few things in common like a love of strawberries and height (though you’re an inch taller than me). I enjoyed getting to know you better 🙂
