Get to Know Me - Beauty Blogger Tag

Hi! 

I felt like doing a tag (first one I've done, actually) that I saw a little while ago by Emily of Beauty Broadcast.

1. Is your hair naturally curly or straight?
~ Wavy, but I straighten it if I'm planning on going somewhere.

2. Do you dye it yourself or go to a salon?
~ Go to a salon.  Like I'm going to attempt to dye it red plus put chunky highlights in? Umm, No.

3. Do you wear the same style everyday, or do you change it?
~ Unless I use a headband or hair clip, it only does one thing.  No such thing as ponytails or braids with my hair length and style.  See picture for example:
This is my current style (fresh out of the salon) - just a shorter version of it, which I think I might go back to for my next cut.

4. Do you do your own mani/pedi or go to a salon?
~ I do my own, of course (massive polish addiction here).  Not to mention the one time someone at a salon did do my mani, it peeled off that night.  So not worth it.

5. How often do you change your nail polish?
~ Soon after it chips, so at least 3-4 times a week.

6. Do you polish your toes in the winter or just the summer?
Spring, summer, and fall.

7. How long does it take for you to put on makeup?
~ Depends on what I'm doing - 5 minutes on a quick day, up to 30 when I really get into it.

8. What do you do first? Face or eyes?
~ Face.  If I'm running short on time after doing the face, I can just put mascara on the lashes, grab a brighter lippie and then look pulled together.

9. Do you collect makeup or just buy what you need when you need it?
~ I buy makeup quite often, so I suppose you could say I collect it, unless it's powder, foundation, or mascara in which case I try to only buy when I need it.

10. How often do you wear false eyelashes?
~ Pretty much never - I have pretty nice natural lashes.

11. Do you do a full face of makeup everyday?
~ Not everyday (happy homemaker here), but I do on most days that I go out - especially if I'm looking particularly blotchy/tired.  And I figure, since I've got it all I had better use it!

12. Do you wear makeup when you're home alone or with family?
~ Unless I feel like playing/trying to recreate a tutorial, I'm bare-faced (just skin care is on) at home.

13. Will you leave the house without makeup?
~ I have to have at least a little powder foundation on (gotta control the shininess and even out the skin tone a touch)...concealer if I have an extra minute or 2.

14. How many high-end products do you have?
~ I'm guessing probably around 20 (the Balm, Laura Geller, Urban Decay, MAC, Sephora Cinderella palette).

15. Do you plan your OOTD every night or decide when you're getting dressed?
~ Depends on if I have to get up earlier than my "regular" time.  If so, then I try to pick the night before.

16. How often do you change your handbag?
~ When it's time to get a new bag because the edges of the straps frayed.

17. What time do you wake up and go to sleep?
~ I'm bad - I go to bed around 2 a.m. (go actually to sleep is another story) and wake up between 10 and 11 a.m. (or when I naturally wake up). No alarm for me unless I have to be somewhere.

18. How often or when do you workout?
~ Not nearly enough; when I do, it's in the afternoon.

19. Left handed or right handed?
~ Left!

20. How tall are you?
~ 5 foot 3.

21. Do you speak any foreign languages?
~ Bits and pieces of 3 (Spanish, Arabic, Urdu - the Mister's native language).

22. How many pets do you have?
~ 3 - one kitty and 2 bunnies:
23. How often are you on Blogger?
~ Every day.

24. Do you read comments posted on blogs?
~  I read all the comments on my blog, and most on blogs I subscribe to.

25. Do you keep a list of products to try as you see other posts?
~ Yep - it's either in a notebook or in my phone.

26. How did you come up with your blog name?
~ Well, it's mine, so I used my name.  Minnie Mouse is a favorite of mine so I did a play on words and used "Minnie" (like the mouse) instead of Mini (for the size of my space).  And I liked the idea of calling my office room a "Studio" like I'm an artsy person.  So, Sarah's "Minnie" Studio was born.  This also left it open enough that my content wasn't restricted to one thing because of the name - I do crafts, make jewelry, sew, do my manicures, etc all in my Studio, and those are all things I've shared.

27. What kind of camera do you use for your photographs?
~ Motorola Android smartphone (macro setting please, plus I have a macro lens for it).

28. How often do you clean your house?
~ Not nearly enough for the said 3 pets running around.  So much fur!!

29. What's your favorite color?
~ Pink (and purple, blue...).

30. Do you swear?
~ Yep, just not around certain people.

31. What are you doing with the rest of your day?
~ Read blogs I'm subscribed to, catch up on Twitter and sort pictures for future posts.  I should do a load of laundry, too (but that will probably wait until tomorrow).

Hope you liked getting to know me a little bit more (other than I shop a lot).  Any other tag you would like me to try to do at some point?  This one was fun!
