I've Been Tagged

One of the fringe benefits of writing a beauty blog is having opportunities to "meet" some really sweet, wonderful people, with similar interests, from all over the world, whom you'd otherwise never have a chance to befriend. "Tagging" each other has become a fun way of recognizing one another as well as getting to know some things about each other that aren't necessarily revealed through blogging content.

My adorable friend Leeann at Join the Gossip has tagged me. This is my first tag and I can't wait to join in the fun. Here's how it works:

* Post rules at the beginning of the post.
* Answer all the questions.
* Tag six (6) people, and go to their blog and leave a comment to inform them that they’ve been tagged and ask them to read your blog.
* Let the person who tagged you know when you’ve posted your answer


What were you doing ten years ago?
Well, ten years ago I had just turned 30 and had graduated my second turn at college so I could work in the field of mental health, which was a huge passion of mine - still is. I hadn't discovered my obesession for "beauty-ful" things yet as I was busy being newly divorced, raising two young children and getting into the workforce. I jumped in with both feet and haven't looked back since. It's really just been over the past five years or so that I've discovered my girly side and love for beauty, and I'm adoring every second of it!

What are five things on your to-do list today?
Hmmm ... my answer won't seem quite fair probably as I'm answering these at nearly 11:00 at night. That having been said, not much time left to do things today.

1) Take a quick bath to relax (will probably use a LUSH Avobath Bath Bomb)
2) Use my newly found facial skincare regimen that I'm simply loving, Organic Apoteke - their rejuvenating line (review upcoming)
3) Kiss the cheeks of my babies (well, though 16 and 14 now, they are still babes to me)
4) Read a bit
5) Imagine I'm kissing the cheek of my other babe, my guy, who is out of the country at the moment - xx, and fall fast alseep

Snacks you enjoy?
Currently, I'm just ape over lightly salted almonds and those Fruit and Walnut Salads from McDonalds. They come with slices of apples, grapes, walnuts and vanilla yogurt - crazy about 'em.

Places you've lived?
In this life or in lives past? Oh, ok, just kidding. Born and raised in New Orleans, Louisiana, and with the exception of a short stint in Alabama I've pretty much been here all my life.

What are 5 things you would do if you were a billionaire?

1) Setup trust funds for my two children
2) Buy a home on the beach and a home in the mountains
3) Travel (but then come back to work, yes siree, I sure would)
4) Share millions with my siblings and close friends
5) Give large sums of cash to unsuspecting people at random - maybe a sweet looking lady in the grocery store, someone frustrated in traffic on a hot summer afternoon, drop a bundle on the doorstep of a stranger with a little note saying, "Enjoy! This is for you" ... I don't know, I find joy out of doing little things to bring happiness to people, surprises they'd never expect. Can you just imagine if someone did that for you? If I was a billionaire I could do this more frequently and on a much larger scale. I'd love that!

People you want to know more about?
Gosh, this is hard! Does God count? Geez, I'm a sociologist with a psycho-analytical disposition for goodness' sake, I want to know more about everyone, it's my nature.

Now please allow me this little extra as I'm adding a question with the selfish motive of wanting to know these little gems from my fellow bloggers.

What are five makeup and/or skincare products you've been using reguarly and are really into at the moment?

1) Perianne Gentle Foaming Cleanser from the Spring/Summer Collection
2) Perianne Light Facial Lotion in the morning
3) Hourglass Veil Mineral Primer
4) Erth Minerals Moth Veil Finishing Powder
5) Prescriptives Colorscope Plush Blush Stick in Voodoo

That was so much fun! My turn; I'm tagging - Tammy at A Mom in Red High Heels, Lily at Beauty Maverick, Kristen at Sugarshock, Annie at Blogdorf Goodman, my Carine Roitfeld wannabe at Fashionologie, and darling PJ at A Touch of Blusher
