Tag: Beauty Blogger

So today I've been nominated to take park in the Beauty Blogger Tag by the lovely Melodie Benson so here goes, here's a little insight into being me...

1. Is your hair naturally curly, wavy or straight?
Wavy, I straighten it most days though.

2. Do you dye it yourself or go to a salon?
Dye it myself – I’m trying to keep it as natural as possible though so I haven’t actually dyed it for ages!

3. Do you wear the same style everyday, or do you change it?
Nah – I like to change things up a bit, I wouldn’t say I was too wild, but it’s nice to do something different.
4. Do you do your own mani/pedi or go to a salon?
I polish my own nails – I usually use Perfectly Polished but I’m desperately trying to save money at the moment.
5. How often do you change your nail polish?
Each week – I get bored otherwise. I always use Essie too!

6. Do you polish your toes in the winter or just the summer?
Just summer.

7. How long does it take for you to put on makeup?
Not long – I can usually do my full make up routine within about ten minutes. I've been practicing for a while, ha!

8. What do you do first? Face or eyes?
Foundation & bases first – I always leave my eyes till last.

9. Do you collect makeup or just buy what you need when you need it?
I only buy when I need it

10. How often do you wear false eyelashes?
Not very often at all – Only on special occasions really. I used to wear them all the time really but now I;m not as fussed - Just extra hassle!

11. Do you do a full face of makeup every day?
No.. I think you need to have ‘off days’ so you can let your skin breathe - Wearing too much make up can give me blemishes and spots so I try to only wear small amounts.

12. Do you wear makeup when you’re home alone or with family?
Nope – These are my ‘off days’ ha!. Bra off - Make up off - Sweatpants on. 

13. Will you leave the house without makeup?
Yupp, the older I’m getting, the less bothered I’m getting about being seen in public with a naked face.

14. How many high-end products do you have?
Only a couple – When it comes to make up I’m not particularly into the high end stuff.

15. Do you plan your OOTD every night or decide when you’re getting dressed?
Not every night, sometimes though I’ll find myself just before I’m going to sleep thinking up possible outfits for the next day. Then when the next day comes round I always change my mind!

16. How often do you change your handbag?
Maybe every couple of days, I love accessorising with different handbags, but transporting everything you have in one bag to another can feel like a bit of a chore!

17. What time do you wake up and go to sleep?
Usually I go to bed about 11 and wake up at 7.30 during the week. I’m not very good at sleeping in anymore unfortunately so even on weekends I don’t wake up much later than this.
18. How often or when do you workout?
I’ve gotten really lazy recently with regards to exercise! Like I’ve literally done nothing for weeks! Must get my butt in gear!

19. Left handed or right handed?
Right handed.

20. How tall are you?
I'm not too sure to be honest, around 5 foot 4 I'd say. Not too tall - Not too small.

21. Do you speak any foreign languages?
I studied French & Spanish while at school so I’d say I know the basics – Weather I’d be able to remember much else mind I’m not sure.

22. How many pets do you have?
Three fish. Stashy, Mr Kipper & Tiddles. Ha - My boyfriend named them honest!

23. How often are you on WordPress?
Only to read other peoples blogs – I use blogger & I’m on that pretty much every day.

24. Do you read comments posted on blogs?
Yupp – I love hearing from people who have taken time to read my blog. I always reply too!

25. Do you keep a list of products to try as you see other posts?
Yepp. I’ve got a really bad memory so I make a list of loads of clothes & beauty products I’d like to try.

26. How did you come up with your blog name?
My name is Claire but one of my close friends calls me Claireabella. Pretty simple really!

27. What kind of camera do you use for your photographs?
Fujifilm Digital SLR

28. How often do you clean your house?
I’ve recently just moved out from my parents and in with my boyfriend and am feeling very house proud, so I’d say all the time ha! For now anyway - Lets see how long it lasts!

29. What’s your favorite color?
Burnt orange.

30. What is your favorite drugstore/high end makeup brand?
I use quite a lot of Maybeline products & MAC as my high end product so both those two.

31. What are you doing with the rest of your day?
Editing some pictured from today’s shoot! Ready for another post tomorrow

Hope this gave you a better insight into being me, to carry the chain on I'd like to nominate...

Thanks for taking a look. Lots of love.



  1. Great answers! I don't have many high end products either. I just can't justify the price most of the time! I'm looking forward to doing this myself :) x

  2. Me too! I'm more into fashion really rather than beauty products. I don't really wear enough make up to justify spending loads of money. Awesome - Let me know when you've done yours & i'll have a read! X

  3. What a lovely post. When I am at home with the family I am defiantly bra off sweat pants on no make up too. Much to my mothers despair. S x #spreadthelove
