Beauty Blogger Tag!

Hello Dahlings!
I've been tagged a few times in recent months, but was too busy with work stuff to do them at da time. So I'm taking a break today from Does It Stamp? to get a lil caught up. Today's tag:
The Beauty Blogger Tag!
My beloved Mistress of Nail Art, Mimi from Mimi Manicures tagged me for this one. 
1) Is your hair naturally curly or straight?
Both! Da hair around my face & nape has some curl to it, but da rest is straight.
So straight that peeps ask if I use a flat iron on it.
2) What is your natural hair color?
Um...let me think...some of it is still medium brown, some of it is silvery white.
Think cinnamon & sugar like you put on your toast.
3) Do you dye it yourself or go to a salon?
I'm a DIY gal! I bleach da browner areas & color it wildly (pinks/purples/blues)
with some help from Mr. Inky. It's a bit of a challenge to do da back by myself.
4) Do you wear the same hair style every day or change it?
While I have a simple blunt bangs & back, my hair might be up, down or
somewhere in between on any given day.
5) Do you do your own mani/pedi or do you go to a salon?
I do my own manis cuz frankly I do a better job than any salon mani I've ever had. I do get pro spa pedis tho' cuz I'm chubby enuf that reaching my feet means I can't breath.
I only do my own feet if I want nail art on them for a special occasion.
6) How often do you change your nail polish?
Usually every other day tho' I do skip a mani or 2 on weeks that I have camp prep to do.
7) Do you polish your toes in winter or just in summer?
I keep my toes polished year round tho' nobody but me, Mr. Inky
& my pedi pro get to see them.
8) How long does it take for you to put on your make-up?
Maybe 5 minutes & usually less than that. My skin doesn't like face make-up
& my allergies make wearing eye make up awkward, so unless its a really special occasion, I don't bother. I do wear lip stick &/or colored gloss maybe once a week.
9) What do you do first, face or eyes?
If I'm bothering at all, I do my eyes first.
10) Do you collect make-up or just buy what you need when you need it?
I have to admit to stock piling lip stick & gloss. I'm a total ho when it comes to fuchsia lip color! As for my collection of polish...let's just say that when da zombie apocalypse starts, I won't have to worry about having nekkid nails...ever.
11) How often do you wear false eyelashes?
Never. My own are rather long tho' invisible without mascara.
12) Do you do a full face of make-up every day?
Oh hell no!
13) Do you wear make-up when you're home alone or with family?
Double hell no!
14) Will you leave the house without make-up?
Yep! If I made wearing make-up a condition of going outside, I'd never leave da house.
15) How many high-end products do you have?
Not many. I can't see da point on spending big bucks
on something I will rarely, if ever, use.
16) Do you plan your OOTD every night or decide when you're getting dressed?
If I have to get up early, I'll plan my clothes out da night before,
otherwise I do it when I get dressed.
17) How often do you change your handbag?
At least seasonally, but whenever da mood takes me.
18) What time do you get up & go to sleep?
I do like my 8 hours of snooze time tho' I don't generally use da same hours of
da clock most peeps use. Bedtime is rarely before 1am & may be as late as 4am.
If I don't have to set my alarm, I'll sleep my 8 hours. 
19) Do you work out? How often?
Nope. Why do you think I can't easily reach my feet?
20) Left-handed or right-handed?
I'm a lefty tho' I can do many things with my right hand,
like do nail art on my left hand.
21) How tall are you?
22) Do you speak a foreign language?
Nope. I've tried several times & just can't wrap my tongue around it.
23) How many pets do you have?
4 cats & Mr. Inky
24) How often are you on Blogger?
At least 4 times a week to post, more if I get comments.
25) Do you read comments on blogs?
26) Do you keep a list of products to try as you see other posts?
Yes, tho' it isn't very long.
27) How did you come up with your blog name?
I've gone by Inky Whiskers for many years & I'm prone to pondering about stuff...
musing, if you will.
28) What kind of camera do you use for photographs?
I have a digital camera, but getting da pics off it is such a pita that I use da camera on my phone 99% of da time. Mr. Inky set me up with Dropbox, so getting my pics off my phone & onto my 'puter is easy. 
29) How often to you clean your house?
Ideally, every week. Realistically, as needed.
Nobody gets to da end of their life & wish they spent more time cleaning house.
30) What is your favorite color?
Violet! No, black! Oh, but what about fuchsia? I can't live without fuchsia!
All of the above?
31) Do you swear?
Like a sailor when da moment calls for it,
tho' if there are kids around I just say 'BAD WORD!"
32) What are you doing with the rest of your day?
Call my mom, tidy a few things & tonight...paint my nails!
I'm not going to tag anyone, but if you do this tag on your own,
let me know in da comments, please?
I'll do another Does it Stamp? post next Sunday. Thanks for stopping by!

  1. LOL, you're nuts!! I enjoyed reading this, I might have to do it too.

    But I have a question, what's dropbox? I mainly use my phone too, but can't get the pics off!

    1. Yeah, pretty much! LOL

      Dropbox is a file syncing service that let's you share files. I use it to 'share' my pics from my phone to a folder on my desktop. Here's da scoop:|e&_net=s&_ad=30609251382|1t1&_camp=Search%3A%20Brand%20%22Dropbox%22%20-%20US&gclid=CKjAq9T6tLcCFeU5QgodXSwAgw

      You could also try emailing your pics to yourself & save/edit/upload them from your computer.

    2. I edited that question to include da link so y'all won't have to copy/paste that humongous addy. LOL

  2. Lol at number 29 - LOVE IT! :-D
