Tag: This or That

  I was tagged by both Jessie from Jessie's LalaLand  and Des from Simple Charm Beauty to do this tag. Seeing as I currently have major writers' block it couldn't have come at a better time.


Blush or bronzer?
I'm super pale so I need blush to make me look alive.  I rarely wear bronzer.

Lip gloss or lipstick?
Lipstick!  It's rare for me to even find a lipgloss that looks good without a lipstick underneath.

Eye liner or mascara?
This is very hard since I love my liner but you can't wear eyeliner without mascara; so mascara it is.

Foundation or concealer?
This is really hard too.  Concealer I guess.

Neutral or coloured eye shadow?
Neutral.  I very rarely wear colours on my eyelids.

Pressed or loose eye shadows?
I really have no preference.  I guess pressed since they're less messy.

Brushes or sponges?
Brushes!  I hate applying makeup with sponges and they just hold onto bacteria which is gross.
OPI or china glaze?
I can't tell the difference qualitfy wise so I guess China Glaze since they're cheaper than OPI polishes.

Long or short?
I prefer medium length but if I have to choose, short.

Acrylic or natural?
I've never had acrylic nails in my life, so natural.

Brights or darks?
This is hard but I guess darks as they're more neutral.

Flowers or no flowers? 
I don't really do nail art so no flowers.
Perfume or body spray?
Perfume.  Body spray doesn't last long enough and I haven't worn it in years.

Lotion or body butter? Body butter!  I have very dry skin so I need something thick.

Body wash or soap?

Body wash is easier to use.

Lush or another bath company?
I'm not a huge Lush fan.  I prefer The Body Shop.

Jeans or sweat pants?
I would have to be deathly ill to leave the house in sweat pants.  I do prefer dresses, skirts, and leggings but I'd choose jeans.

Long sleeve of short?
I prefer short sleeves and then wearing a cardigan if it's cold.

Dresses or skirts?
Dresses as they're the comfiest piece of clothing and are easy to wear.

Stripes or plaid?
Plaid.  I don't have many striped things.

Flip flops or sandals?
Sandals.  Flip flops are meant for the beach.

Scarves or hats?
I have to wear hats in the winter but I prefer not wearing one so scarves.

Studs or dangly earrings?
Studs.  Dangly earrings hurt my ears and I'm paranoid of getting them caught on something.

Necklaces or bracelets?
I suppose I wear bracelets more.

Heels or flats?
I'm 5'1" so I wear heels whenever I can get away with it.

Cowboy boots or riding boots?
I wouldn't be caught dead in cowboy boots and I'm not a huge fan of high boots in general, but if I have to choose I'd pick riding boots.

Jacket or hoodie?
Jacket.  I only wear hoodies at home.

Forever 21 or Charlotte Russe?
I have boycotted Forever 21 and we have no Charlotte Russe in Canada.  Charlotte Russe isn't really my style but I'd pick it over F21.

Abercombie or Hollister?
I've never shopped at either and have no desire to.  Are they even any different?

Saks 5th or Nordstrom?
I've only been to Nordstrom once and it seemed really expensive.  Out of the Canadian department stores The Bay is my favourite.
I tag anyone who wants to do this!


  1. I feel like all of my answers to these questions would be the exact same as yours! May I ask why the F21 ban? I can't say that I've ever heard of anyone not liking them! I wish they had one in Italy, but I guess H&M will have to do.


    1. Forever 21 double charged me on a $70 online order and gave me the run around when I tried to get a refund. I had to file a complaint through my bank and fill out a few forms. It took 2 months to get a refund and they ended up ignoring my last few emails. Their clothing is pretty dated if you ask me anyways, you always have to pick through a pile of junk to find something nice. H&M is A LOT better!

  2. Oooh I love body butters too, I want one in every scent!

    1. I am on a mission to try every single scent haha.

  3. Great post! These are lots of fun to read. I'm almost opposite on many of the things with you haha! Thank you so much for your recommendation to get a tarte or illamasqua blush because I ended up getting a tarte blush that I absolutely love! I'll be doing a haul post soon, but I just thought I'd thank you for your lovely recommendation! :)

    1. Yay I'm glad you love your new blush! Looking forward to see which one you picked :)

  4. I watched NikkieTutorials on Youtube do this tag and thought it was so cute! Now I wanna do it! I'm so with you on basically everything! I'm a huge dress person as well, their just easiest, haha!

    1. Yeah, do it! I want to see your answers. I'm so jealous of the dresses you post on Instagram :)

  5. I love reading these tags! Would You Rather is one of my favourite dinner table games!

    1. Haha I don't think I've ever played it!

  6. Wow, those earrings look stunning! I remember doing this tag some times ago too, so fun!

    1. Thank you, they're just cheap ones from ASOS :)

  7. Such a great tag, love reading these! <3

  8. Well, this Mama loves bronzer and body lotion and owns and wears several pairs of cowboy boots, but I enjoyed your refreshing and honest answers. You always looks so put together. How about a blog about what makes your "down time" enjoyable? For me, it's my fat girls clothes, where everything I wear is oversized (read comfortable). Tell us yours Christine!

    1. Lol I should have known it was you when you mentioned cowboy boots. Sorry mummy xxxx
