Rewind || Beauty Blogger Tag

Wow can you believe I did this very tag 4 years ago, when I was first starting out. That is crazy and I feel I owe you guys a more updated version. I have grown so much over these past 4 years and so has my blog. The imagery is far better and so is the blog layout, gone are the days of unfocused images and poorly tags posts. I don't regret starting my blog, in fact I love it and even though last year was a little tough for me. I found the light and the passion I had when I first started. So, without further ado my updated Beauty Blogger Tag!

Is your hair naturally curly or straight?
Naturally wavy. It is nice when my hair is mid length, but when I have short or long hair it tends to look a bit of a mess.

Do you dye your hair yourself or go to a salon?
All by myself. From bleach blonde to black and all the colours in between. I love changing my hair colour, its my personality and it makes a statement. I even cut my hair myself, currently loving the short bob.

Do you wear the same hair style everyday, or do you change it?
Sometimes, I am a creature of habit. It can be just so easy to keep the same style for a few days, especially if you just can't be bothered to actually brush your hair, haha. 

Do you do your own mani/pedi or go to a salon?
Do it all myself. This past Christmas, I received a nail light to set gel polish and since then I have had different nails every week. I love it! plus who wants to spend money when you can DIY.

How often do you change your nail polish?
Well I wear tips usually so generally speaking I change every week. Though, I did have the same polish on for 2 weeks which for me was a record and no chipping or flaking. I tell ya, gel has changed my life.

Do you polish your toes in winter or just in summer?
Every day of the year. I feel my toes look very strange with bare naked nails, like I don't have any. Plus you can do so many fun polish looks on your toes to perfect the ones on your hands.

How long does it take to put on your makeup?
Well this is a very vague question. It breaks down to this, if its for an even I like to take my time and it usually takes 2 hours, if I'm in a rush I can be done in 30 mins and if I am really strapped for time, then its out the door as is. Over the years, I have become more comfortable in my skin and have the confidence to walk out with nothing on (my face that is).

What do you do first (Face or eyes)?
It depends on the eye look and the time I have. If I have plenty of time then eyes first as I can go all messy and clean up later. But if I'm doing a simple look or have no time then the eyes get left till last. In this case I'll swipe a shimmer on my lid or just put on mascara.

Do you collect makeup or just buy what you need when you need it?
Haha, I would say buy it when I need it but that would inevitably be a down right lie. I have a problem but at least I can admit that and embrace it, makeup is my passion and love. I love the way you can transform yourself, cover your anxiety, boost your personality and be whoever you want to be. Makeup is my life and if I could I would do it as a full time profession.

How often do you wear false lashes?
Girl falsies are sooo last year!, Haha no really I love falsies and I have plenty of them, its just I am really into lash extensions as they look natural and you don't need to do a lot of work to get a beautiful basic eye look. But, if I don't have those extensions then I gonna grab those falsies. Oh and yes I do those myself as well, save money where I can.

Do you do a full face of makeup everyday?
No! I wish I could but some days are lazy days dedicated to catching up on work and some days I have to be up and out way to early that makeup is out the question. As I love sleep, I just have to deal with the face I have for the day. Though the only exception is when I have presentations to do, as I know everyone will be staring at me.

Do you wear makeup when your home alone or with family?
Yeah, sometimes I do. It's not to please anyone its just because I love makeup. Plus that feeling when you wipe it all off is heavenly.

Will you leave the house without any makeup on?
Yeah! Like I said before, I have embraced the skin I'm in. I love myself weird to say but I do. Yeah some days I feel like I look gross, but then the next I will feel amazing. As long as I'm happy with or without makeup, the rest of the world will just have to deal.

How many high-end products do you have?
Oh God, this question again. Well, its way more than the last time I answered this question. I can't say how many as too some I have too many, my friends cannot believe the amount of makeup I have and have spent. So I'll break it down to a few key area, Most of my expensive makeup is in my SFX kit (its a pricey kit), The next most expensive area is my eye shadows as I have both Huda Beauty palette just to name a few and my ever expanding collection of liquid lipsticks and highlight. If you really want to see my beauty makeup collection click here. Yes I have way more than is necessary but can you put a price and number on your hobbies.

Do you plan your OOTD every night or decide when you're getting dressed?
This depends on the day really. Big events I plan well in advance and I will always have several options, in case I don't feel right in it. If its a family/social event then yeah I will plan the outfit the day before. But in general on an everyday basis no. As sometimes life just requires you to get up and not leave your pjs.

How often do you change your handbag?
Every month usually. Not because I must, it's just the way it happens. It is usually because I need a different bag for something and then it just sticks.

What time do you wake up and go to bed?
I go to bed anywhere from 10-12, its the wake up that changes. Usually when I'm at my dads I can sleep as long as a bear in hibernation. But in general, I usually get up about 8.

How often do you workout?
Errrrr, next! 

Left handed or right handed?
I'm right handed.

How tall are you?
I am 5f 6"

Do you speak any foreign languages?
No not really, I know a little bit of French, a little bit of Spanish, a little bit of German and a few phrases in Italian.

How many pets do you have?
Personally I only have 2 guinea pigs, Marmite and Marmalade, but there are pets I call my own (generally my partners pets and my dads). So to-date we have 2 guinea pigs, 3 cats, 1 dog, 2 lizards and 1 snake. They are all different and all have their own personalities, which make them perfect and fit well with the family. Hopefully in the not to distant future, there will be a few more pets in the family.

How often are you on Blogger?
I try to be on it at least once a day. Just to see how everything is going and read comments. I try to post at least 3 times a week, with the occasional laps when I end up being busy.

Do you read comments posted on blogs?
Yeah all the time. I love reading comments on my posts, I am part of a blog pod where we share our posts and everyone has a read and comments. The girls are wonderful and I love the fact I get to read new posts and see what everyone else has been loving. It gives me inspiration whether that is future posts or purchases.

Do you keep a list of products to try as you see other posts?
Oh yeah! I try to keep the list on my blog up to date. But I do try to keep a mental list as I have seen a lot of things to pick up.

How did you come up with your blog name?
So originally my blog name was SparkleBarbie1000. A mouthful and not very inspirational. I used it as that was the name of my Youtube channel. Well I started becoming involved more with my blog and its followers. I wanted to be more professional and assertive so I changed the name and became The World According to Jess. I got a domain and now 2 and this is my world, my pride and joy and I feel the name is perfect for what my blog has become. From the bottom and now we're here!

What kind of camera do you use for your photography?
I really want a proper camera, the Sony A5000 but  I just haven't got the money to get it just yet. So I have been using my trusty phone camera, the Samsung Galaxy S8 Plus.

How often do you clean your house?
Once a week and it's only one room. But I think when I have my own place it will probably be the same.

What's your favourite colour?
My favourite colour is lilac, its summer and spring and just reminds me of happy times.

Do you swear?
Yeah I do! Such a potty mouth, usually when I'm annoyed. But, I try not to swear while filming.

What are you doing with the rest of your day?
I'll be catching up on some Youtube videos and I will probably head to be.

Wow, I feel like I have opened up a little more and updated you on me. I would love to know a little more about you guys, send me your fun facts I'd love to read them.

Stay Gorgeous
