Tag | The Procrastinating Beauty Blogger

Hi, my name's Jo and I'm a serial procrastinator.
Cue reams of excuses as to why I deserve a break from writing my dissertation and how I have done so much work my word document will burst if I don't have a breather.
No. My word document will not burst.
My words will not fall off the end of the page.
My work will not do itself.
But I am going to do this tag because I want to, ok?
And because the beautiful Chloe from Chloe's Way tagged me and it would just be plain rude not to participate, right?
Glad that's settled. So moving swiftly on...

1. Copy and paste these 'rules' into your post when you write it!
2. You must state that this tag was created by Laura from The Beau Bow.
3. You must thank the person who tagged you at the start of your post, follow them if you're feeling nice and at the end of your post state who you tag, and comment on their blog to let them know you tagged them.
4. Title this post 'The Procrastinating Beauty Blogger TAG' .
5. Have fun!
1. Name a beauty regime that you rarely do.
Moisturise my body. Don't get me wrong, I'm amazing at moisturising my face but my body? I just cannot be bothered, particularly in the winter when it's so cold and I just want my bed!
2. Is washing your makeup brushes something you do regularly? 
Seriously? Never. It's actually appalling, I think the last time I washed them must have been a minimum of six months ago. I can always find something better to do!

3. How long will you last with chipped nail polish?
Once they start to chip, I could probably last an absolute maximum of three days before they become too vile to look at and I have no choice but to take it off.

4. How long do you put off buying/replacing a beauty or nail polish product even if you need it? (i.e. purchasing a new topcoat, or a new foundation etc.)
I'm actually pretty good at replacing products, only because I only tend to use up the stuff I use religiously. So things like cleansers, moisturisers, foundations and mascaras which I have my ultimate favourites of, I will stock up on before I run out.
Other things like lipsticks, eye shadows etc. I always have a huge selection of, so if I run out of one it's extremely rare that I will repurchase when I have a million and one alternatives.
5. What is your worst beauty habit?
Probably not being able to bring myself to stray away from doing neutral coloured smoky eyes. A couple of years or so ago I used to be a lot more willing to experiment with different colours. I need to get back to that habit and quit running back to my trusty brown eye shadows.
6. Name something non-beauty related that you put off doing all the time?
Healthy eating. I always say to myself "right, as of tomorrow no more snacking", then tomorrow comes and I'll be like, "as of tomorrow no more snacking", and so on and so forth. I need to kick myself into gear before my good metabolism decides it's not playing any more.
7. When going out somewhere, do you leave getting ready until the last minute or not?
If it's a night out I'm usually quite good at starting to get ready early enough, otherwise I'd be there all night. If it's anything like getting up to get ready for work then yes I really will push it time-wise. I'll snooze the alarm for half an hour, just so I can lie there and wish and wish that I didn't have to get out of bed.
8. Can you commit to spending bans?
I've never tried, but I'm usually quite good with my money and won't be ridiculous if I know full well I can't afford it or don't need it (unless of course, it's an absolute bargain). If I really tried I definitely think I could do it.
9. How organized is your makeup and nail polish collection?
I'd say it's all pretty organised to be honest! I know where everything is, as all my makeup is kept in a cute cake stand which separates my face, eye and lip products in different tiers, and my nail varnishes are all kept in the same box so yeah I'd say I'm doing alright on that front.
10. What is the longest amount of time you have gone without writing a blog post?
I think it was actually a couple of weeks ago that I went a whole week without blogging. Naughty Jo.
