Questions


1. why did you start your blog?
I'd been watching beauty gurus on youtube for years and then more recently i found the world of fashion/beauty bloggers and feel even more in love with everything to do with it. I started my blog because i had a thought that maybe journalism, even specifically fashion journalism could be what i wanted to do as a career, i absolutely love it and right now, that is what i want to pursue. I'd always loved writing but got frustrated with trying to write a books, I love song writing but i realise now that this is what i was searching for.


2. what is your goal in life?
My goal in life is to be truly happy and successful in what i do. I have high expectations for myself which scare me a little but i'm sure most people do. The thought of the future being unknown is unnerving when you really think about it.

3. what are the 3 most important things in your life right now?
Right now i'd say my education and upcoming exams, my physical and mental health and my family and friends.

4. what do you consider to be your greatest talent?
I don't want to sound vain because i'm honestly not but I consider my singing voice to be my greatest talent. I've been singing literally all my life and i don't know what i'd do if i didn't feel as attached to music; singing is so therapeutic for me. I used to post covers on youtube but stopped around a year ago, i might start again but who knows. They're here: Jayneemmasings they are old so i look different now and i would say my voice has progressed. 

5. what do you consider to be your greatest achievement?
I'd say my gcse results that i have got so far, I got an A overall in Science Unit 1 (chemistry, Biology and Physics) and also i achieved A's in some other exams but i have yet to take the other  units in those subjects so therefore there is not a definite grade yet.

6. what your favourite 3 things about yourself?
I really like my eyes and my legs and my hair,  i don't know whether this question is purely appearance based but oh well!

7. what is your biggest fear?
I have a few fears but one over powers them all. I suffer quite badly from anxiety and it is really, really horrible. It's gotten a bit better now but it's up and down and i hate it. It stops me from feeling comfortable in school and even around my friends. I think i have specifically social anxiety and it is awful, it controls me.  

8. what do you think you’ll be doing in 3 years time?
Hopefully in university if i think rightly studying Journalism, or at least that's where i want to see myself now.

9. do you believe in love at first sight?
Hmm, i'm not too sure about this one. I believe that when you see someone that person can intrigue you in a deeper sense and you feel drawn to them but I'm not too sure that i believe that love is a feeling that happens by sight, to me love is much more deeper than that. I think that love comes with knowing the person and falling in love with who they are.


10. what do you think the best bargain you've ever bought is?
I actually can't think of a best bargain... i'd probably say a topshop crop top that was in my collective haul; I bought it in the sale for just £5, an amazing price for topshop!


11. if you could travel to anywhere in the world and do any one thing in that place, what would you do and where?
I would travel to Paris and rent or stay in the most gorgeous flat and buy books and clothes and go out seeing the sights, it sounds really boring but it sounds so beautiful and inspiring. I would also love to go to London or just go partying and be wild. Opposite ends of the spectrum i know haha.

11 Facts about me

1) I am quite closed off and secretive nowadays, i keep most things to myself but about a year and a half ago i never used to be.
2) I don't completely trust any of my friends in my life right now, this ties in with fact number 1 but it's more than that.
3) I am not a judgmental person, i feel that i am very open minded, therefore i strongly dislike people who try and tell others who they are and judge them for things they've done and not for themselves.
4) I am starting sixth form in September and even though I feel old enough in myself, It's scary how quickly it's all gone as I am leaving normal school in less than 2 months.
5) Up until somewhere around Summer last year i'd always wanted to live in America but now i'm really glad i'm English and I love being from England.
6) I am short sighted and have needed glasses since year 1, i mostly wear contacts now though.
7) I have a cat named Fizz who i've had since year 3 if i'm remembering correctly, I love her.
8) As i mentioned in question 7, I suffer really badly from anxiety and have done since this time last year, it's been horrible and it still is. This has caused me to become depressed so i was a really unhappy person for awhile and while i'm at a good point right now i still always feel on edge and it's always there, controlling me.
9) I am around 5ft 4 and i'm told i'm quite small even though i'm okay with my height, i'd like to grow tiny bit taller though, maybe an inch or two.
10) I love reading and Harry Potter is my favourite and i also adore John Green's books, he is an amazing author, although there are many books which i've read that are amazing.
11) Finally, I am a gemini and i believe in horoscopes as for me, they seem to be true and what is said about my sign, most of it describes me in some way or another.

My Questions
1) What made you call your blog what it is?
2) When did you start becoming interested in fashion blogs/beauty gurus?
3) Do you have any interesting talents or hobbies?
4)Who is your favourite artist/band?
5)Where would you go tomorrow if you had to start fresh somewhere new?
6) Who is your style icon?
7) Do you have any fears?
8) What do you want to do when you are older?
9) What three beauty items could you not live without?
10) Favourite thing to do in your spare time?
11) Describe your favourite outfit/piece of clothing to wear

Bloglovin/Youtube/Twitter etc

I've recently heard that google reader is shutting down on July 1st. I don't know exactly what this means for google friend connect or blogger as i've only just recently created my blog on here but i know it will affect followers, or so i've heard.
I don't have many followers at all on here yet and that's understandable of course but it would be quite sad for them to disappear all of a sudden, I don't know how i'd feel about the current situation if i had a large amount of followers as many blogs do.
So the aim of this post is to inform you of where you can follow me on Youtube, Twitter and most importantly Bloglovin. I have a personal twitter which i would link on here but i won't be posting any information about my blog on there as I would like it if people from school didn't know about this blog, at least for the time being, although i do follow beauty bloggers on there. So instead of using my personal twitter which may cause issues, I decided to create a new twitter focused on my blog.

Here are all my links:

The Procrastinating Beauty Blogger TAG



Hi everyone, Megan from Thebeautypier tagged me and this tag was created by Thebeaubow.

Rules:
1. You must copy and paste these 'rules' onto your post when you write it, it doesn't take long!.
2. You must state that this tag was created by 'The Beau Bow' and link www.thebeaubow.blogspot.com
3. You must thank the person who tagged you at the start of your post (link their blog as well) -follow them if you're feeling nice!, and then at the end of your post state who you tag, and then comment on their blog on their latest post to let them know you tagged them, and link your post so they can see what to do.
4. Title this post 'The Procrastinating Beauty Blogger TAG' so everyone knows what it is about.
5. Have fun! :)

And on with the questions...

1.Name a beauty regime that you rarely do?
I don't use a cleanser on my face as much as i should do, i'd say i cleanse my face with my nivea cleanse and toner about once every two weeks, i just forget. I really need to get into a routine of doing it because i'm sure my skin will benefit from it a lot.

2. Is washing your makeup brushes something you do regularly?
No, this sounds bad but i haven't even got round to buying a brush cleanser yet. I really should but i'd probably always forget to do this too. To me it sounds like such a mundane task. I usually just wipe and scrub at my brushes with a makeup wipe or run them under running water which is probably bad for the brushes. 

3. How long will you last with chipped nail polish?
If it's on my nails not too long, i usually will reapply it after a few days but if it's on my toe nails i will usually wait until it's all chipped off unless it's summer and i'm wearing sandals of course!

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.)
Not long at all, especially if it's something i use everyday like foundation or concealer, i will repurchase it almost immediately.

5. What is your worst beauty habit?
Probably hardly ever moisturising or cleansing my face, I really need to get into a routine.

6. Name something non-beauty related that you put off doing all the time?
This took me a minute to think about, I'm sure there are lots of things that i put off but i would say the two things i put off the most are homework and tidying my wardrobe  I am usually quite good when it comes down to tidying my room, not that it is always tidy because it certainly isn't but i think i am lazy with my wardrobe because it is shut away and covered by a door so no it doesn't affect the tidiness of my room. Also, it's so hard when you're yanking clothes out of shelves every two minutes!

7. When going out somewhere, do you leave getting ready until the last minute or not?
I usually get ready quite a lot before or I at least start getting ready in enough time that i'll be ready with time to spare, i quite dislike feeling rushed. I don't take too much time to get ready but i sometimes leave getting my bag together and other little things to last minute though.

8. Can you commit to spending bans?
I've never really had to commit to one so i wouldn't know. i should probably try though, there are times when it'd feel more rewarding if i saved my money instead of spending. I do usually spend most of my money though but i wouldn't say i'm too bad, i'd like to think i'm quite good with my money as i don't tend to spend it on stupid things, only mostly clothes and make up. I don't really see the point on saving money if you're not saving to buy anything, especially at this age, if you see something you want you should be able to treat yourself without feeling guilty.

9. How organised is your makeup and nail polish collection?
Not that organised at the moment, i need to buy more acrylic storage. I use the mini acrylic storage stack of draws to store my make up but it's not that organised really. I also keep most of the make up which i use everyday in a make up bag as it's easier to access and i know i won't forget anything when i go out if it's kept together. I'd say my make up brushes are pretty organised though  I just have my nail polishes in an overflowing square mirrored pot at the moment which could be more organised.

10. What is the longest amount of time you have gone without writing a blog post?
I'd say generally about a week. On my old blog back on wordpress i think it was about a month but i like posting once a week now and now i'm more attached to my blog.

So that's all of the questions answered! Part of the rules of this tag and the general rule of the tag is to tag other people so there are the people who i am tagging:

You don't have to have been tagged to do the tag, if you want to go ahead and do it!



February Favourites


I know it's a bit late but i wanted to film a video yesterday so i thought it would be a good idea to film a monthly favourites video. Please excuse the amount of times i say 'like' i don't even realise it, oh well!

Wishlist #2 | Yayer.co.uk

// 1. ♡ Click ♡ £20.00 // 2. ♡ Click ♡ £28.00 // 3. ♡ Click ♡ £22.00 // 4. ♡ Click ♡ £150 // 5. ♡ Click ♡ £25.00 //

I came across the website yayer.co.uk through sunbeamsjess on youtube, as soon as i browsed through their website i was in love. Their prices are reasonable and the clothes that they stock are amazing, they're mostly inspired by the 90s grunge gothic trend which is of course the trend which i am most fond of and like to think that i follow the most. I haven't purchased anything from yayer as of yet but i'm sure that i will in the near future. So, instead of endlessly browsing through their entire website, wishing for money to magically appear, I decided to make a wishlist that would purely consist of items from yayer.co.uk to satisfy my lust. 

The first item is actually just the meshed crop top without the black under top although obviously you would need to wear something underneath. I am a big fan of meshed up tops and while i wouldn't really wear this during the day, I could see myself wearing it for a party with high-wasted distressed shorts or a brightly coloured skirt. I would love to wear this to add a layering of grunge to a simple crop top. 
The second piece of clothing is one which i fell in love with as soon as i saw it. As you have probably noticed i am instantly drawn to tops which are cropped, i love the cut of them. I don't own many jumpers and i love how the lilac tie dye isn't too overpowering but is enough to give it that gothic look. I nearly bought this the other day but it's currently sold out in a size small, sadly.
The price of this maxi skirt is partly the reason why i included it in this wishlist, it's quite a good price in my opinion at £22. I have to say my obsession with velvet has died down since Christmas has come and gone but I do love a bit of black velvet. Again i don't own a maxi skirt so i think it is needed that i buy one for summer as i love the look of them.
In my last wishlist i also included a pair of Jeffrey Campbell's, this time it's the Coltrane Boot. These are currently sold out on yayer's website but it's not as if i would have jumped at the chance to buy them anyway because of their price - it is a wishlist after all! The gothic grunge look of this boot is so entrancing, i love a big boot and the cut out effect adds to it's perfection. If i had to buy a pair of Jeffrey Campbell's it would definitely be this pair.
The last item on my wishlist caught my eye last minute, again it's a crop top (surprise surprise). I really do love the wet look of this top and I could definitely see myself wearing it to a party, it appears to me as one of those tops that you wouldn't wear out on a day to day basis. 

What do you think about these items? Ever ordered anything from yayer.co.uk?
