Okay…yes…”tags” are technically a YouTube thing. (Although I remember way back before YouTube even existed, back in the MySpace days, where “quizzes” were HUGE. They’re the original tag!)
I saw this original one created by Essiebutton (watch below) and thought I’d participate because…let’s be honest….I love me time!
What do you watch or read during me-time?
Embarssingly enough I LOVE to watch cooking shows but since I don’t have TV service or any video subscription services I’m a slave to Food Network full-episodes on demand and YouTube. I’m also a sucker for TLC (if they have any full episodes online I want to watch) and just general lifestlye/beauty/fashion YouTube channels. I also love to read the news via Twitter, Feedly, Pocket (things I’ve saved) and other blogs.
What do you wear during me-time?
As Estee hilariously put it “home is where the bra is not.” So true. For me, my “home” uniform is usually a soft, large t-shirt (#nobra) and underwear. No pants necessary.
What are your me-time beauty products?
Thursday is usually my “pamper” night which includes a clay face mask and Love Etc. body wash (I can’t remember the really good shampoo I occasionally bust out because it smells so good). I’m not too huge on keeping tons of beauty products around (okay, I kind of am and need to purge before I move) so I can’t list 90000 products.
Current favourite nail polish?
CoverGirl Outlast Stay Brilliant Nail Gloss in Sapphire Flare…..I’ve been on the hunt for a dark, almost black, navy nail varnish that I could matte out. Haven’t found it yet! But I did buy this navy one and I’m a fan. Navy is just my all-year color anyway but I’m in love with it this fall instead of the regular muted gem tones that are usually in during this season.
What do you eat/drink during me-time?
Tea and more tea although these days I’ve just been boiling water and drinking hot water. Plus chips…or anything salty. My weakness.
Current favourite candle?
I’m a big fan of Bath and Body Works Mahogany Teakwood candle. And also this random one I found at Marshalls.
Do you ever have outdoor me-time?
In the spring and summers I like to take walks in the park or take my camera and go on adventures but in the late fall (like now…meh) and winter, I prefer to stay snuggled in bed.
Would you ever go see a movie alone?
Oh, I have! Just once. Last November The Fifth Estate (the Benedict Cumberbatch as Julian Assange movie) came out. I was ridiculously sick (like…drinking bottles of liquid cold medicine) and had to go by the cinema anyway for something so I went “eff it, I want to see this movie and no one wants to go with me” so I saw it by myself!
Favourite online shop?
I’ve actually sworn myself off online shopping because I used to do it a little toooo much but I’m a big fan of New York & Co. as a whole. I find their clothing of decent quality in classic, made for the office, styles. Plus I frequented the stores so often I finally learned my size in all of their clothes and could start to order offline! (What a problem…)
Anything to add? What else do you do during me-time?
Sometimes I literally sit in silence and Google pictures of kittens. Welcome to my life.
