Get To Know Me Tag

Who doesn't love a good tag! I was very kindly nominated by Hannah ( to do this tag, I definitely think you should take the time to go and check out her blog. I'm sure both me and her would appreciate it.
On with the tag!

1. Is your hair naturally straight or curly? 
Thankfully my hair has a natural wave so I'm quite lucky that I don't have to do anything to it for it to look ok. Although brushing it makes it super frizzy so I avoid that.

2. Do you dye it yourself or go to a salon? 
Well I went to a salon and look how it turned out!!
Yep, I ended up with bright orange hair and the worse ombre ever! Definitely not £150 worth! I have since done it at home and made it look 100% better! And for a fraction of the price. 

3. Do you wear the same style everyday or do you change it? 
A lot of the time I just wear my hair down and wild. It depends what I do really, as my hair is long it gets in the way so I might put it in a ponytail, plait or bun. I can't be bothered to style my hair everyday. 

4. How long does it take for you to put your makeup on?
Probably 5 minutes, if that! I am literally so bad(and lazy) when it comes to makeup. Can I just get someone to do it for me? If I'm going out somewhere nice it'll probably take 10 minutes but thats all. 

5. What do you do first eyes or face? 
Well I don't usually put anything on my face because I'm super lucky that my skin is quite good. I also have a skeleton face so contouring isn't for me. So I would say eyes because that's all I do. 

6. Do you collect makeup or just buy as and when you need it? 
I buy it as and when because I would much rather buy clothes and food than makeup that I don't need. Having said that, I never bin makeup, even when they're empty I struggle to let go. 

7. How often do you wear false eyelashes? 
When I go on a night out, I absolutely LOVE wearing them, they just look so pretty. I wish I could be bothered to wear them everyday, although I'm really not that fake. 

8. What are your current everyday staples? 
Um.. Makeup wise, mascara and fake tan. That's it really, I can't live without my phone, can I count that? 

9. Do you wear makeup with you're home alone or with family? 
No way unless it's leftover from the day before. Who can be bothered with that?! 

10. How many high end products do you have? 
I have a few, only because I want to try them and I don't buy makeup and stuff all the time. I don't tend to use them an awful lot though, I know it's a waste. 

11. Do you plan your OOTD the night before or decide when you're getting ready? 
I try to do it the night before when I'm in bed so that I don't waste any time in the morning because sleep is precious! 

12. How often do you change your handbag? 
I probably do this every 6 months I would say. Which I think is an acceptable time, unless they break of course. 

13. How often or when do you workout? 
I used to workout around 3 times a week which felt amazing, sadly I have become so rubbish at the moment. I will start right after I've finished this post! 

14. Left or right handed?
Left, which means I have horrible handwriting. 

15. How tall are you? 
I am 5ft 10in pretty tall for a girl apparently. Here's some pictures of me being tall. 

16. Do you speak any foreign languages? 
Sadly not anymore, I used to speak Czech and French but I sadly let myself forget :( 

17. Sweet or savoury? 
Sweet all day, chocolate is my favourite!!! 

18. What's your favourite perfume? 
I literally could not say my favourite, I think I like nearly every perfume ever. Yep I am so good to buy perfume for. 

19. How many pets do you have?
I have a rabbit - Polly, 2 guinea pigs - Percy and George and a horse - Pipin. Does he count as a pet? 
This is my old mini shetland, he was just too cute not to share! 
20. Do you read comments on blogs?
Yep, I love it so much! 

21. Do you keep a list of products to try when you see other posts? 
No, I tend to only buy products that I have heard loads of good reviews from, I tend to follow the companies on Instagram so that I don't forget about them. 

22. How did you come up with your blog name? 
Well it's my name with an xo on the end. My name is spelt differently because I used to get called Gale so I discovered I could get loads more usernames if I spelt it like that. 

23. What kind of camera do you use for your photos? 
I'm such a bad blogger when it comes to photos! I only use my iPhone 5S, I just find it so convenient to use my phone. It's not until I go to write the blog post that I realise how bad the quality is!

24. What's your favourite colour? 
Wine red at the moment I think or mint green. 

25. Do you swear? 
F**k yes! Haha, no I don't swear a great deal unless I'm annoyed. 

26. What are you doing with the rest of your day? 
I'll probably blog a little more, go on Twitter and watch crap TV. Oh and exercise! Yes I'll do that. 

Well done if you managed to get to the end! There were loads of questions, I need a nap.
