Green Beauty Characters Tag

I saw this on Amber's Beauty Talk a couple of weeks ago and decided that I would give it a whirl.The tag was created by Sonja over at Life in Blush and you can read Amber's answers to the tag here.

On my nightstand you’ll find: Lip balm, hand cream, a book, music, glass of water and tablets. See my post here. Essentials for an end of the day/easy wake up routine.

The literary character I'm most like is:  According to this quiz I'm Hermione from Harry Potter. I am smart, witty and love a challenge. This made me chuckle a bit - mostly because I have mad hair like Hermione did at the beginning.

I'm currently obsessed with: SoukSouk boxes. I joined up in July and every month I get a box of goodies to my front door for a really reasonable price. I've been able to sample so many different brands, brands that I have not even heard of. It's a great scheme and one I will be part of for a very long time.

My favourite superhero is: Hmmm - Batman or Iron Man. Men with money rather than radioactive spiders or super powers.

Favourite beauty product of 2013: I've tried so many amazing things this year but I think I have to say NYR Wild Rose Beauty Balm. It has made a real difference to my skin and is such a good multitasker.

If I could have dinner with anyone dead or alive it would be: All the people I have lost - either from falling out of touch or those important people who have passed on. My Grandma passed away earlier this year and I feel like I only ever knew her as "Grandma" rather than as a individual and a woman.

Winter is coming – how do you prep your skin for battle? Balms and oils. My evening skincare routine is taking longer as I really want to be able to give my skin back what it has lost during the day with cold winds and central heating. Its a really soothing process.

My perfect date night makeup consists of: I'm not a big makeup wearer so I usually just exaggerate my day time look. This means a shimmery neutral eye shadow with a bit of shading, thick black cats eyes, a couple of coats of mascara, a bit of blusher and a slick of lipstick. Ready to go!

My go-to skin-beautifying snack/drink is: Water water water. 

My TV boyfriend is: 

Jonny Lee Miller - in anything! He is a fantastic actor and a total babe; currently in Elementary as Sherlock Homles but my favourite as Mr Knightly from Jane Austen's Emma. 

If my evening clutch could only hold one beauty item it would be: Some kind of lip colour - tint, stain, gloss, stick, balm - something to keep those lips looking good all night.

One beauty tip I would pass on to my fictional daughter is: Drink plenty of water. It will flush out a lot of those nasties and keep your brain focused. 

The most nostalgic item from my childhood is: It's been great putting the Christmas tree up as I get out all my old ornaments from when I was a child. My favourites are an egg that my Mum decorated when I was about 7 and a little tubby angle. The bring back so many good memories.

My favourite TV show of the moment is: Elementary on Sky Atlantic. The Tunnel, also on SA, is a very close second. I'm a total dork really, but Doctor Who is a Big Deal in my family so we always watch it and I can't wait for the Christmas Day episode. Bye Bye Matt Smith.

My favourite quote is: "Experience is merely the name men gave to their mistakes" Oscar Wilde, The Picture of Dorian Gray

    1. Oooh thanks! I'll have a look at your link now :D x

  2. Loved reading your answers! Thanks for tagging mine :) Jonny Lee Miller is in Dexter as a sex abuser so when I saw him in Elementary when my family were watching it, it was so weird because hes a happy British man in that hah!

    1. I know - I remember thinking at the time that I shouldn't be attracted to him in Dexter! x

  3. Hello fellow "Hermione" ;-) I also liked doing this tag. I really enjoyed reading your answers and your tv boyfriend is looking good ;) x

    1. Thanks Liz! I'm glad you liked reading mine :) It's always a bit weird writing about yourself rather than a product, isn't it?! x
