The Beauty Blogger Tag ✰ 2016

The Beauty Blogger TAG 2016 Ingrid

Summer months are ideal to finally do the TAGS I’ve been wanting to do for such a long time. With the Olympics on every channel and the Orange dude crying and shooting everywhere on TV, I think a simple TAG is the perfect way to just take a breath and stay on my planet MakeUp…

With no further ado, let’s answer The Beauty Blogger Tag …

1. Name a beauty routine you barely do.
I do them all but one, so this one is easy! The only routine I don’t do is apply false eyelashes; simple, I never learned to properly apply them. This was part of my beauty goals 2016, I guess I should start practicing.

2. Is washing your brushes something that you regularly do?
Before, I would have answered that I was neglecting this task but now, I wash my most used ones once a week religiously!

3. How long do you last with chipped nail varnish?
I don’t that’s why I always wear clear nail polish on my hands and bright colors on my feet (I don’t tolerate chipped nail varnishes on my feet either !).

4. How often do you put off buying/replacing a beauty item or nail polish, even if you need it?
I never put off buying products since I always have backups of my Holy Grail items! In fact, I always find some needs to buy some more… Have you seen my stash lately? This question probably makes you smile.

5. What is your worst beauty habit?
Is buying too much stuff and throwing half of it in the garbage a bad habit??? I think so … Overspending is my worst beauty habit.

6. Name something non-beauty related that you tend to put off all the time.
Hummm! I hardly never make my bed, I know it’s bad but oh!so true … No one can see it since I live mostly alone, with BeardMan always traveling for work, or taking care of our small house up north.

7. When going out somewhere do you leave getting ready until the last-minute or not?
I’m not a last-minute girl on anything in my life. I love putting on makeup so much that I love taking time to do it properly even if it means getting up earlier than I should be!

8. Can you commit to spending bans?
Bans? Hell no … In theory, I’m on a low-buy right now and it’s challenging to say the least but I’m happy to report that so far I’ve spent half the amount of the previous year.

9. How organized is your make up and nail polish collection?
I’m the Martha Stewart of makeup organization: meticulousness about my collection is an understatement! Every category of products have their own section … BeardMan has even join the bandwagon and build me a new space just to make sure that I could set up my clothes, makeup, shoes and all my girly stuff nicely.

10. What is the longest time you have gone without writing a blog post?
I don’t really know but if I’m guessing I would say a month and this was last February when I got sick and wasn’t feeling like writing.

Valentine’s Day Tag ❥ 2016

Valentine's Day1

valentine's day tag

♥ I love Tags and this one was just so fun to answer ♥

1.  What is your favorite Valentine’s Day treat?

Capture d’écran 2016-02-09 à 10.00.26

Just put some heart-shaped chocolates on a cake and there you go! As they say in “How I met your Mother”, my sweet tooth is LEGENDARY!!!

2.  Sweethearts or chocolate covered strawberries?

Hands down chocolate… preferably white chocolate-covered strawberries. I’m not really a fan of Sweethearts.

3.  What was your favorite Valentine’s day memory?


The romantic weekend I bought for BeardMan and I for our first Valentine’s day together. I ended up with food poisoning, and this supposed 5 star hotel was barely a cheap 2**. Romance is the last thing on your mind when your boyfriend is holding your hair while you are crazy sick… But, in a way, it was REALLY a night to remember! 🙊

4.  What movie would you rather watch on Valentine’s Day: Pretty Woman or You’ve Got Mail?

Capture d’écran 2016-02-09 à 10.07.48

None of the above! I’m an action kind of girl … and these are too romantic for me. But wait, we are watching Outlander at the moment, a TV series based on Diana Gabaldon books and it’s pretty romantic, even a bit 50 shades of Grey-ish 😳!!!

5.  Which restaurant would you prefer to go to for a Valentine’s Day date?

No restaurant for us! I prefer a nice home cooked meal.

6.  What would you do on your perfect Valentine’s date?

A date???? I need to think about it since I didn’t have one in such a long time 🙊.

7.  Red or pink lips on Valentines Day?

Screaming loud and clear: PINK !!! No reds are touching my lips EVER.

8.  What is your ideal Valentine’s Day date outfit?

A very loose flannel pyjama. As a mentioned a few times, I prefer the comfort of my home  over a night on the town or a big restaurant! Maybe it would be different if we lived in New York or Paris… So, comfy warm clothes over a black skinny dress anytime (for now)!!

9. Homemade or store-bought gifts?

Nothing … but if he insists, he can refer to this list (link)

10.  Would you wear your hair up or hair down for a date night?

For the first time in my life, I have bangs (what on earth possessed me to ask for bangs in the first place, we’ll never know!?!). With my very curly hair, I need some practice to master the art of styling bangs. Since I already burned my forehead trying to do something with my curling iron, I’ll stick with Bobby pins.

11. Choose a celebrity to be your Valentine.

Totally Ricky Whittle from The 100 TV series and of course, my beautiful and dog lover Tom Hardy as his backup.

12. Do you consider Valentine’s Day a Big Deal?  

Heck no! I’m teasing my BF a lot though. The reality is that we don’t celebrate any special occasions that much.

13. What’s your favorite kind of chocolate?  


I’ve always been a Kit-Kat girl, and Caramilk … and Aero… and Crunchy … and Cherry Blossoms 🍫. Well, I like them all except dark chocolate.

14. Stuffed bears! They’re cute, they’re cuddly, they keep you safe from nighttime monsters. If your significant other got you one for Valentines, would you think it was ridiculous, funny, or cute?

See the picture below 😉 Totally cute since it was a present from my late favorite uncle.😇

15. Favorite romantic-type book?

I used to read romantic cheezy books like crazy when I was younger! Believe it or not, I could easily read 3 per week but now they don’t interest me at all. I guess I have all the romanticism I need with BeardMan 😘😘

Truth be told … This tag was answered by the least romantic girl ever (sad but oh! so true)

 Happy Wednesday

Christmas Tag “Xmas” Blog |December 12


The Christmas TAG



1. Favorite Christmas Movie?

Any Hallmark’s Hall of Fame Christmas special  movie of the week.


2. Are you on the Naughty list or the Nice list?

I wish I would be naughtier sometimes but what can I say, I always end up on the nice list 😉


3. Have you ever had a White Christmas?

That’s a good one! The question should be if I ever had a Green Christmas, and the answer would have been Nooooooo. From a country who brought you snowmobile and snowshoes, White Christmases are the norm!


4. Do you start your Christmas shopping on Black Friday or wait until the last minute?

I do my shopping all year long. I’m not at all a last minute kind of girl. I’m  always on the prowl for good bargains so, it’s Christmas all year from my wallet’s point of view!!! In Canada, the Black Friday shopping frenzy started a few years ago as large US companies applied their deals on this side of the border. Our Thanksgiving is usually in October.


5. If you could be in any Christmas movie what would it be?

A cheesy romantic Hallmark Hall Of Fame movie of the week with Tom Hardy and a couple of dogs 🙂


6. Name all of Santa’s reindeer.

OMG!!! Except for Rudolph, I don’t know any other.


7. Is your Christmas tree real or fake?

Always a real one. I love the smell of a natural fresh cut tree.


8. Peeking at gifts or be surprised?

I want to be surprised but I’m a peeker. Younger, I was searching everywhere to find my gifts, and I even played with one of my Christmas gift for a few weeks before the big night.


9. Does your family have a special holiday recipe you like to help make?

I’m a very big helper in the licking & eating department . No one seems to need my help. I guess they all think I’m a bad cook.


10. Have you ever gone Christmas caroling?

I was in a choir for 10 years for Pete’s sake 😂


11. What tops your tree?

Always an angel but a few years back, it was a star.


12. Do you make New Years Resolutions? Do you stick to them?

I try to make resolutions that I can keep. Last year I fulfilled all of them except the weight-loss part (of course like 99% of the population).

13. You have been granted one Christmas wish…what will it be?

Peace on earth (Yes, but not really)… To see the ones I lost one more time.


Thanks for stopping by my beauties
