Sorry for the weeks hiatus, I had to reacclimatise myself to work and what have you. I also had a mild case of jetlag, which left me pretty tired evenings, but now I'm back to my three posts a week!
The lovely Sakuranko nominated me for the BBlogger Tag. I was going to do it before I went to Korea, but as you can see, that never happened... ^^;;
How this tag works:
1. Share 3 facts about yourself
2. Answer the questions
3 Random Facts About Myself
1. I love to read
2. I like baking, but not cooking...
3. Drinking tea, accompanied by a piece of cake and a good book is one of my favourite pastimes.
My Answers to the Questions
Which country do you live in?
What's the meaning behind the name of your blog?
It's Japanese and means shooting star. ^__^
Why did you start blogging?
I love to write and communicate with others, and I thought blogging would be an excellent platform to do this. Unfortunately in my early days (I started in 2011) I had no idea what to blog or how to go about it... Now I think I'm getting the hang of it, or at least I hope so! ^^
Which product have you repurchased the most?
Uh.... Beauty product? Hmm... Coconut oil - I use it on my hair and on my skin.
Smokey & Sexy? Girl Next Door or Bright & Bold?
I'm not sure... Bright & Bold sometimes Smokey & Sexy???
Biggest blogger/youtuber inspiration?
I don't have any one that stands out in particular, though there are a few that I enjoy reading and watching. ^^
Drugstore or high end?
Depends on the product.
Bronzer or blush?
How many times a day do you wash your face?
Biggest skin struggle?
I have sensitive skin, so if I use some random products I'll probably break out...
What's your favourite way to pamper your skin?
What's your skincare routine?
Just the usual? Key for me is to use natural products.
Are you confident to go out without make-up?
YES!!! Years ago I would have been horrified to leave the house without make-up. Somehow it didn't feel right, like I wasn't dressed. Now, I realise that in the end, your natural face is the most beautiful. Of course I still enjoy wearing make-up, but I don't wear as much as I used to, and I rarely wear powder (I don't wear foundation, irritates my skin). And there will be many a time you can spot me without make-up of any kind. ^^ I really don't care.
This is the reason I also take care of my face, invest in good products, have facials, etc, so that I don't need to cover it up. ^__^
Favourite hair product?
First hair day or second hair day?
That... Depends on many things... Sometimes the first, sometimes the second...
How many times have you dyed your hair?
Oh, there was a time I dyed it often, was even blond for a while (hard to imagine, huh?). Now I rarely dye my hair, and if I do, it's usually just my natural colour anyway (got to cover up certain hairs, you now? *cough* *cough*). I was thinking of getting some blue highlights, but I don't know anymore...
Neutrals or bight colours?
Is black neutral? Red is bright though. A combination maybe, depending. But I mostly wear black.
Winter or summer fashion?
Jeans, shorts, skirt or dresses?
Shorts, I will always wear shorts, even in winter. I also like skirts and dresses. These days I often wear jeans, but only because wearing shorts or skirts (well actually skirts and dressed are allowed, but all of mine are mini so yeah...) would be deemed inappropriate... What kind of world do we live in???
Lot's of beauty questions! Normally I don't really discuss this on my blog. Hopefully you found it interesting anyway. ^^
Thanks for participating!!!
