Ask Lauren #3

Hey everyone, I hope you're all having a brilliant week- I think it seems to be dragging but hey it'll be Friday before we know it. I'm completely lacking in blogpost ideas at the minute so I've had to resort to a good old Q&A, I apologise if you find them boring. If you just so happen to like getting to know me a little better then this ones for you... 

1. Which drugstore products would you recommend? 
As I'm sure you all know by now I'm a massive MAC Cosmetics devotee so I haven't really tried that many different drugstore products. I absolutely love Brow Satin by Maybelline though- it really is the best brow product I've ever used, and one I'd 100% recommend. 

2. What do you do to your eyebrows? Like threading, waxing or just plucking them yourself? 
Believe it or not I've never actually had my eyebrows done professionally which is probably quite obvious as I don't have the best brows in the world. I feel like I'm the only girl that doesn't get the whole 'brows on point' obsession?! So yeah, to answer the question- I simply just pluck them myself. 

3. What's your favourite high-street store?
I tend to go through phases of loving a certain shop but the main ones I shop in are River Island, New Look, Miss Selfridge and Topshop. I've picked up quite a few things in New Look recently so I suppose you could say I'm lovin' NL right now. 

4. What's your fave go-to makeup/beauty product? 
Oooh, that's such a hard decision to make because my whole life is in my makeup bag. It'd have to be mascara though, I look ill without it- the no lash look deffo isn't for me! 

5. What's your 'lazy day' natural makeup look if you can't be bothered to do your whole face? 
Myself and natural have never been in the same sentence, I don't mind admitting I'm no natural beauty. I can guarantee my 'lazy day' makeup is some peoples going out look! If I'm going out only if it be to the supermarket a full face of slap will be applied. 

6. If you're petite what would you suggest to make yourself look taller if you're not really a stiletto heel kinda gal? 
This is a really good question as I'm only 4'11, you could say I need a bit of a helping hand in the height department- although I don't actually mind being so small. If you don't like to wear heels maybe go for a ever so slightly heeled boot? Also bare legs and nude shoes always work wonders for the pins! 

7. What's your favourite treat food? 
Now, this is a hard question. Can I choose a sweet and savoury option? I will anyway... My fave sweet treat would probably be strawberry and Nutella pancakes and then for savoury I'd pick chicken katsu curry. 

8. What's it been like since you started blogging and what would you say to someone who would like to start? 
I absolutely love blogging and I'm so glad I decided to start as I feel I've gained loads from it such as making new friends and improving my writing skills. To anybody toying with the idea of starting then I'd say, GO FOR IT- you've got nothing to lose. 

9. What's your favourite thing to do when you're unwell/chilling to stop boredom?
Blogging is a brill boredom curer, as is watching a series on Netflix/catching up on your fave tv shows. I also love painting my nails as that kills loads of time and then you're left with perfect nails at the end of it- win, win situation right there. 

10. What's your favourite smoothie? 
I always make a smoothie called 'Banana Berry' which includes strawberries, banana, kiwi, blueberries, raspberries and ice- my all time fave! 

11. What do you look for from shops that could go with any outfit? 
A nice pair of black or blue jeans will go with literally anything so I guess a good pair of jeans is my answer. 

12. What's your favourite foundation and powder brush? 
I use the Real Techniques stippling brush to apply my foundation and then another Real Techniques brush to apply powder (can't remember which one it is). 

13. What's your favourite cupcake to make? 
Erm... anything chocolate of course. Chocolate cake wins hands down every time, I'm such a chocoholic. 

14. How do you stay positive? 
I think the key to keeping positive is to allow yourself time to be upset if something really rubbish is thrown your way and then try to overcome it after you've spent a couple of days feeling sorry for yourself. That way you'll remain positive at least 90% of the time! 

15. What are your aims for the future? 
I tend not to plan too much as you know what it's like when you do, things never happen at the age you planned and then you end up panicking. I'd ideally like to be doing a job I love and just being extremely content and happy with life in general. 

16. How do you stay slim whilst being inactive? 
Majority of the time I'll eat healthy and I've never really been a snacker so I guess that helps. I don't do anything in-particular though, I suppose I'm just lucky!

17. Do you miss school and would you go back if you could?
I can't even believe I'm saying this but yes, I do miss times. As much as I miss it I would never ever sign up to do it all again though, you've got to be joking. 

18. What did you want to do (job wise) when you was younger? 
The first thing I wanted to be was a beautician but then I changed my mind as every girl wanted to be one and then it changed to a doctor- why I ever thought I'd be intelligent enough I don't know?!-  and then a nurse when I realised I wasn't quite cut out to be a doctor. 

19. Is your hair naturally curly or straight? 
My hair is naturally curly. I used to absolutely hate it and I'd straighten it everyday but now I've embraced the curls! 

20. Do you prefer the summer or winter? 
The summer, I'm such a sun worshipper. I love nothing more than sunbathing whilst listening to music, oh and I love having BBQ's so that's another reason why summer is my fave. 

I hope you've all enjoyed getting to know me a bit better and thank you if you asked me a question. Do you like these kind of blogposts?
