11 Things You Didn't Know About Me (Tag)

Thank you so much to Kimberly from The Colour Chronicles who kindly tagged me to answer these great questions!

Rules of the tag:

- Answer 11 questions from the blogger who tagged you.
- Create 11 new questions. 
- Tag up to 10 other bloggers to answer your questions.

Here are Kimberly's questions, along with my answers:

1: If you could only use one item of makeup for the rest of your life, what would it be? 
I really want to say eyeliner, because I always like to wear a lot of eyeliner. I'm also known not to leave the house without a dark red/plum lipstick. But I feel that said eyeliner or lipstick will look pretty bad without an even skin tone! So I'm going to have to go with my L.A Girl Pro Concealer. The dark circles just have to go!

2: Do you have any tattoos? 
No, I don't have any. Though I have had a long battle with myself regarding if I should get one or not. Years ago I believe I even had a Pinterest board dedicated to tattoo ideas. But honestly, I feel that I'm too fickle to get a tattoo, as I imagine I'll decide I don't like the tattoo anymore soon after getting it. The fact that I'm not sure itself probably means I shouldn't get one!

3: What was the first film you ever watched?
I had no clue so I asked my mum. She thinks it was Dumbo. I do remember watching it a lot as I child, but I can't remember any of it now!

4: What was your favourite subject at school? 
I think this changed a lot depending on how old I was/what school I was at. Though I remember generally getting very exciting when we would have ICT, as it just involved messing around online for a whole period. It was especially great in the days before I had internet at home!

5: Do you like video games? 
I do, but I don't really play them anymore (unless on my phone). It's something I really want to get more into in the future though, when I have more time. I generally like old school N64 type games!

6: What is your favourite type of exercise? 
I like to do Yoga, as it's something that's really easy to do at home and it has many benefits. At the gym I really enjoy the treadmill (and I generally like walking).

7: If you could travel anywhere in the world, where would you go?
If I could go anywhere I would go to Nashville, Tennessee. I've been there before and it's the best place I've been, and I'm desperate to go again! If we're talking places I haven't already been, then I'd love to see Amsterdam and explore the West Coast of America. 

8: Have you ever dyed your hair? 
Yes! My hair has been various shades of red. It's current orangey-red and I dye it with Henna.

9: Would you rather have bright pink eyebrows or bright blue leg hair (that you couldn’t get rid of) for the rest of your life? 
I would have to go with the pink eyebrows! Just because people dying their eyebrows bright colours is a thing now, and people would assume I'm just one of those people. Dying leg hair on the other hand is not a thing (yet), and I actually really like showing my legs and I feel I'd have a huge complex if I had blue leg hair, and would probably never leave the house!

10: Who are some of your favourite bloggers? 
This is so hard as I follow sooo many bloggers, all of whom I really enjoy. Though I really like Sprinkle of Glitter, who was the main inspiration for my own blog. And It's Le Cafe Noir is a great new blog!

11: What is your favourite bath product?
I'm going to have to be really boring and say that I rarely take baths, so I don't really have one! I've never even been inside Lush (I should probably just go ahead and nominate myself for the 'Worst Blogger of the Year' award right now). Does anyone have any recommendations for me?
