Another one of these 'get to know me' tags for you this evening! Enjoy.

1. Is your hair naturally curly or straight?
My hair used to be naturally sort of curly, but now it's much longer it's got heavier, and so its more on the straight side now - which I'm so happy about! 

2. Do you dye it yourself or go to a salon?
In the past, I dyed my hair quite a lot. The first few times I dyed it myself, but then it all went tits up so I had to go to a salon! That was back in the days when I thought blondey/orange hair suited me (oh god), but now my hair is 100% its natural colour and I haven't dyed it in about 3 years. So to actually answer the question, I don't dye my hair anymore! 

3. Do you wear the same style everyday, or do you change it?

I'm pretty unadventurous when it comes to my hairstyle. On the day I've washed and blow dried it, I tend to just leave it as it is because it's pretty much straight, but on second day hair I'll straighten it to tame the beast! Goes slightly out of control!

4. Do you do your own mani/pedi or go to a salon?
I do my own nails. I'm not much of a nail kind of girl, I just find a colour I like and slap it on!

5. How often do you change your nail polish?
Probably once a week

6. Do you polish your toes in the winter or just the summer?
I don't do my toes often, but I just do it whenever I feel like some colour down there (sounds dodgy...), which isn't too often!

7. How long does it take for you to put on makeup?
It depends! I usually try and give myself about 30-40 minutes to do it. But if I'm going on a night out, it's a completely different story!! 

8. What do you do first? Face or eyes?
I do my face first and then my eyes, don't know why, I just prefer it that way!

9. Do you collect makeup or just buy what you need when you need it?
 I'd like to say I collect it, but I really can't afford to be doing that! Mostly, I'll just get what I need but it is sometimes nice to go a bit mental and spend some pennies on some goodies. Not too often though.

10. How often do you wear false eyelashes?
Never for just everyday. I've only started wearing false lashes within the past year on nights out! Although the reason I started wearing them when I went out was because I thought they made me look older when I was 17 and trying to get into clubs - haha. But now I wear them pretty much every time I go on a night out.

11. Do you do a full face of makeup everyday?
No. If I'm doing completely nothing in a day but chilling in my pjs I won't wear any makeup. If I'm going to be nipping out a couple of times in the day I'll just use my Bobbi Brown Gel Liner, L'Oreal Mascara and MUA Brow kit. However, if I'm going out in the evening or I'm out somewhere all day I'll go the full monty (foundation, blush, eyeliner, mascara, brows and possibly eyeshadow)

12. Do you wear makeup when you're home alone or with family?
I never wear makeup when I'm home alone!

13. Will you leave the house without makeup?
 Yes - if I'm just popping out to the shop and I'm feeling lazy I won't put any makeup on.

14. How many high-end products do you have?
I have quite a few I think, it's a mixture of NARS, MAC, Bobbi Brown, YSL, Lancome and Urban Decay (is UD classed as high-end?!), but I do love my good old drugstore products too!

15. Do you plan your OOTD every night or decide when you're getting dressed?
Rarely, I just throw on whatever I want on the day, I'm not much of a planner.

16. How often do you change your handbag?
Not often. I probably should invest in a new one soon.

17. What time do you wake up and go to sleep?
Recently, I've been sleeping at about 2-3am and then waking up whenever! Oh the joys of summer holidays.

18. How often or when do you workout?
I try to do it about 2-3 times a week, although I haven't done it in a while I am hoping to get back at it tomorrow!

19. Left handed or right handed?

20. How tall are you?

21. Do you speak any foreign languages?
None at all - I'm so boring!

22. How many pets do you have?
None anymore, I used to have a cat and a budgie but they died, and my sisters fish recently died so our house is officially petless! 

23. How often are you on Blogger?
I think I check it a few times a day, I'm on Bloglovin' much more though because that's where I follow the most people, I like to check the most recent posts.

24. Do you read comments posted on blogs?
Yup - I like to see other people's opinions on a specific post or product, you really do learn a lot from it.

25. Do you keep a list of products to try as you see other posts?
Not a physical list, a mental one!

26. How did you come up with your blog name?
Probably the most unimaginative name ever! It's just my first name shortened (Emily - Em), my middle name (Georgia) and then the first letter of my last name.

27. What kind of camera do you use for your photographs?
I know it's a Canon but that is all I know! I don't currently have it with me as I'm not at home for the rest of the week - Sorry!

28. How often do you clean your house?
I try to keep my room tidy, it doesn't last too long though.

29. What's your favorite color?
I don't really have a favourite colour! Black probably (roll on the 'black is a shade not a colour' comments...haha).

30. Do you swear?
Yes - not really something I feel proud to admit but it's just become part of my daily vocabulary. But I'm not the kind of person to throw in an F-Bomb at the end of every sentence, I ain't that kind of a swearer! 

31. What are you doing with the rest of your day?
I'm going to be watching 10 Years Younger (love that show) and then going to pick my boyfriend up from work at about 12am - oh the joys of being the only one in the relationship with a driving licence!
