This or That TAG

I know that I haven't really done any posts that are more of a personal nature to tell you a little bit about me, and I will start to do that if you think it would be fun to read - but I can tell you that I am a very logical and decisive person, with views and opinions about most things. So when my friend Jannat (from Artical and Fashion Knowledge) tagged me for the This or That? post that's been doing the rounds lately I thought - that should be easy to do. Well I have news for you my friends - IT WASN'T! I guess it just shows that we all have many sides to our characters, and while I may be decisive at work and practical things - I'm definitely on the proverbial fence when it comes to lifestyle. However, being an optimist I prefer to see that as a result of my natural curiosity and openness to new things, and in many cases I don't want to limit myself in any way shape or form. As Him indoors always says: "- I used to be indecisive, but now I'm not so sure..." Anyway that's a small insight into my character, and now let's move quickly on to the questions in the tag, starting with makeup.
1. Blush or Browns - I'm not sure what's meant by browns, so I'll assume that it's bronzer which I'll use for both sculpting and to add some color.
2. Lip gloss or lip stick - Lip gloss
3. Eyeliner or mascara - Mascara (ha - this was an easy one)
4. Foundation or concealer - If I had to go for just one it would be concealer since I don't use full coverage foundation or foundation all over my face anyway
5. Natural or colored eyeshadow - Depends on what look I go for, but the majority of the time it's more natural
6. Pressed or loose eyeshadow - Pressed, loose eyeshadow and powder just goes everywhere and you end up wasting a lot of it
7. Brush or sponge - Definitely brushes, sponges are just messy and again you risk wasting a lot of product

1. Opi or China Glaze - OPI, love love love OPI, they have amazing formulas and shades
2. Long or short - Long
3. Acrylic or catural - Natural
4. Bright or dark - Dark
5. Flower or no flower - No flower, but I am very partial to a little or a LOT of sparkle!
1. Perfume or body splash - Definitely perfume
2. Lotion or body butter - Definitely body butter
3. Body wash or soap - Definitely wash since I avoid soap as much as possible
4. Lush or Other - Lush does have amazing things, but I couldn't limit myself to just using products from one brand and there's just too many other nice things to choose, so this would be both
1. Jeans or sweat pants - Jeans, can be dressed up or down - great for any occasion
2. Long sleeves or short sleeves - Compromise: 3/4 length (how creative am I...)
3. Dress or skirt - I love dresses, but also wear a lot of skirts so for me it's definitely both
4. Scarves or hat - Scarves, but not to wear around the head
5. Studs or dangling earrings - Studs
6. Necklace or bracelet - Necklace, there's nothing like a gorgeous statement necklace
7. Heels or flats - Heels, but I have started to be a little bit more practical and love a great pair of flats too
8. Cowboy boots or riding boots - Riding boots
9. Jackets or hoodies - Jackets
10. Forever 21 or Charlotte Russe - Forever 21

1. Curly or straight - Well I wouldn't go as far as to say curly, but definitely wavy
2. Bun or ponytail - Bun, although I wear ponytails at some point almost every single day
3. Bobby pin or butterfly clips - Bobby pin
4. Hairspray or gel - Hairspray
5. Long or short - Long, long, loooooooooong
6. Dark or light, Light
7. Side swept bangs or full bangs - Side swept for me, but full bangs look great on others
8. Up or down - Depends on my mood, outfit and occasion. Since I have long hair I find it quite boring to just leave it down, although that is what Him indoors prefers...

1. Rain or shine - Shine - the more the merrier and the bronzier
2. Summer or winter - I love all the seasons because they're each beautiful in their own way, but I have to go with winter since I prefer to be more dressed up - a lovely coat, stylish boots, leather... aaaaaaah nice
3. Fall or spring - Again they are both lovely but I guess I would need to go for fall because of the beautiful colors (but hate the rain).
4. Chocolate or vanilla - Neither, I'm not a chocolate lover and vanilla is too plain, so if those were the only options on a dessert menu, I'd rather pass. If I decide to go for something naughty it'll be in a flavour that I will really enjoy and it will always be something with a fruity taste, e.g. mango, passion fruit or raspberry. 

So now you know a little bit more about me, and I TAG the following beauties to share a little bit about themselves:
