Can I just start by saying I spelt 'Procrastinating' right first time without copy and pasting it. Little bit proud of that. Anyway, I was tagged to do this post by the gorgeous Aly from Wonderland Beauty and I absolutely loved reading her answers and this tag seemed like a lot of fun, so here we are!

1. Name a beauty regime that you rarely do.
Fake tan. I'll use it once or twice and love it and promise myself I'll keep up with it and be lovely and bronzed forevermore, but no. I'm a total flake. In the meantime, I'll just pretend I'm embracing the pale look.

2. Is washing your makeup brushes something you do regularly? 
When was the last lunar eclipse again...? Not really, I'm not that bad. But seriously my brushes are lucky to be washed once a month. But do you ever look at your brushes and think ahh they're fine they can go another day, then whoops! A day becomes two weeks. I've not got any dirty brush related skin diseases just yet though so I can't be that bad, right?

3. How long will you last with chipped nail polish?
I just won't. I rarely wear regular nail polish because it gets in the way when I do clients nails, I usually have gels, but when I do, the minute it chips, it comes off. I hate chipped nails.

4. How long do you put off buying/replacing a beauty or nail polish product even if you need it? (i.e purchasing a new topcoat, or a new foundation etc.)
I repurchase before it runs out if it's something I absolutely can't be without - i.e. foundation, eyeliner. But if it's something I have several of like a blush or lipstick, I'll only replace it if I really start to miss the specific product. To be honest though, I'm fickle with most things (bar a few holy grail items), so I don't always replace, I'll try something new. All for the sake of blogging and reviews, of course ;)

5. What is your worst beauty habit?
I don't have any bad habits as such, but I'm stuck in the cat eyeliner rut, which is sort of a habit and one I wish I could break! I love the winged eyeliner look, but I do wish I didn't feel so naked without it. Going out without black winged liner is just unthinkable. You know those dreams when you're naked in front of everyone you know? Yeah, that.

6. Name something non-beauty related that you put off doing all the time?
This is weird, but getting ready for bed. Not in a childish way, but everything I need to do before bed, like take off my make up, moisturise my whole body, put hair oil in, brush my teeth etc etc etc, gets left to the last minute when I'm so tired that I'm brushing my teeth with one eye closed. The problem is, I cannot fall asleep without doing all of these things first. I will never learn.

7. When going out somewhere, do you leave getting ready until the last minute or not?
If it's work, or something else that's pretty important, then no. If it's just shopping, a night out, seeing friends/ family, basically anything where I'll be forgiven for being late then absolutely yes. It drives my boyfriend mad, just yesterday we were going out for dinner and instead of getting ready to leave I was trying to get him to play a 'guess the song by the intro' game. It was a fun game mind you.

8. Can you commit to spending bans?
I've never tried but maybe. I think if I was working a lot and had distractions then sure. I'd also have to be banned from reading blogs, you guys are such a bad influence! ;)

9. How organized is your makeup and nail polish collection?
So so, I have my everyday makeup bag, which is a bit of a shambles but it has everything I need (and then some), so I know what I'm looking for and its sort of easy to find. The rest of my makeup is better though, all my face products, lip products, eye products and nail polishes are in separate boxes so I know exactly where to look when I want to find something.

10. What is the longest amount of time you have gone without writing a blog post?
I'm not too sure, maybe a week or so. I'll generally write a little something if I'm feeling uninspired, just so no one sends out a search party, which would absolutely completely happen. It wouldn't. What I actually did last time was posted a picture of a sad dog apologizing for my absence.
