Makeup and Beauty Blog Tag: Getting To Know You, Revisited

Published in: Just For Fun

I was rifling through the MBB archives yesterday when I came across this old game of blog tag.



Blog tag is where one blogger tags another blogger with a list of questions and conversation starters for a sort of “getting to know you” blog.

This morning I thought it might be fun do it again with more answers to the same questions, except this time I’m tagging YOU! :)

Things I’m passionate about

Sleep
Travel
Nutella
Running
Succinct writing
Low-fat cooking
Rescue animal adoption
Apples (as in Macintosh)
Excess body hair removal
Sales and beauty bargains

Things I’d like to do before I die

Live somewhere I can surf in warm water on a daily basis
Spend a full month traveling through Europe
Come to peace with all of my faults
Learn how to play the cello
Develop abs of steel!
Own a Chanel purse
See U2 in concert

Things I say often

You’re so strange
Show me your tum!
Crap, my 217 is dirty
Let’s do the dishes tomorrow
What time do you want me to set the alarm?
Please, no talking until I’ve had more caffeine


Books I’ve recently read

Lauren Conrad’s L.A. Candy
Sara Gruen’s Water for Elephants

Songs I could listen to over and over

I Like It, Debarge
Burning Up, Madonna
Number One, Goldfrapp
With or Without You, U2
Not That Kind of Girl, Jojo
Sweetest Decline, Beth Orton
Love Like This, Natasha Bedingfield

Traits I’m attracted to in my best friends
