Q & A!

Hey everyone!

I’ve been tagged so many times, by so many brilliant bloggers in all these different posts where you answer questions about yourself, your likes/dislikes and just general things about your life so people can get to know you better. I’m going to be honest, I’ve never even done ONE of them, I’m so sorry. 

I really do genuinely appreciate being tagged but I have been so inspired to write and upload the kind of content that I have planned to do that I haven’t really had the time to focus on these kinds of posts. Also some of the questions I really just didn’t know how to answer. But hey, I thought instead I’d open an anonymous online inbox where you guys could ask me what you wanted to know instead of me answering a load of random questions about whether I prefer dogs over cats which I’m sure everyone already knows anyway if they read my blog.

Here is a picture of Nacho just incase you didn’t know, you can see more fabulous pictures of her here.

So, onto the questions you guys have asked on Curious Cat!…

If you were a rock star, who would you be and why?

Still my beloved Hayley Williams since I was like 12, I think she’s so under rated vocal ability-wise and she’s super cute, always stands up for what she believes in and is just awesome in general.

What’s one makeup product that you couldn’t live without?

Concealer, I have the worst dark circles under my eyes so I don’t know how I’d live without it without looking like some weird animal.

Why did you start your blog in the first place?

For a few reasons really, I used to get asked quite a lot for advice on makeup, skincare and just general beauty related things as I worked for The Body Shop and thought it’d be fun to start putting it out there and see what happens and here we are. I also basically only had one friend who knew anything about makeup and brands etc to talk about it and get excited about it with so I hoped it’d get me in with some more people that I could share my passion with… and it has!

I love how funny your makeup post is with your boyfriend! How long have you guys been together and will you do more posts with him?

Haha thank you! That’s actually one of my most viewed posts! It will have been 4 years next week and yes there’ll be plenty more with him, come visit the blog on Sunday 😉

Who is your style inspiration? Makeup or fashion-wise.

I’m really sorry but I don’t actually really have one… I’m quite an odd one with style as some days I’m in leggings and a fluffy jumper and others I’m in double soled DMs and fishnet, I mean there are quite a few people who I admire but I could never wear what they do. If I was a lot skinnier I’d be dressing like Abigail Halliday, sort of like gothic-chique? Leather trousers and whatnot. Makeup-wise I love Tina Halada but I’m nowhere near talented enough to re-create her looks!

Are you vegan or not?

Nooo I’m not vegan but I eat a lot of vegan food as I can’t eat dairy or gluten but I still eat meat.

Please can you put up more posts with your dog in!!

Yes!! She’s almost always on my story on Instagram so follow me there @blacktulipbeauty 🙂

Favourite thing about yourself?

Oh god errr my emotional strength and how empathetic I am. And my hair, ha.

When are you going to sing again?

Hopefully very soon! It hasn’t been at the forefront of my mind as my life’s a bit hectic at the moment but I’ll be back eventually when I’m well enough.

What blogger would you love to meet and why?

Obviously all of the girls from the Blogger Babes chat and Andi!! She’s so cute, I love reading her posts and I think we’d get on so well from what I know of her!

This was actually a pretty fun post to write so thank you guys for your questions! I’ve just given away what my post on Sunday is going to be so keep your eyes peeled for that 🙂

’Til next time,
BTB Xx

    Love this! Some great questions and I definitely love your answers. I didn’t even know this was a thing. It’s a good way of getting to know a blogger, especially with questions like this, they’re a little different than standard questions.

    I used to listen to Paramore all the time back in the day! I love your photo that goes with this post, you look so beautiful! I’ve been tagged in so many posts but I haven’t done them all either, I’m trying to keep my content focused on what it’s meant to be more than upload loads of tags about me. This is a great idea for a post!

  20. Emma says:

    Ah I’m totally with you on the concealer! With the 3 kids I’m constantly tired! This was a really interesting post 🙂 x

      She still totally is for me! X

  23. Yasmin says:

  26. Anu says:

    I don’t what I would do without concealer! And mascara as well. Usually if I can’t be too bothered with makeup but still want to make an effort I just pop on some concealer, mascara and do my brows and it makes such a huge difference :)x

      Yeah I feel you there, concealer, powder and mascara were my lifesavers back in college haha! X

  27. Joyce Lau says:

    My must have product would be a eyebrow pencil. I just can’t function without brows 😂

  28. This post was so fun & I loved getting to know you better on it! Xx

    Ohhh i love get to know me posts! I definitely couldn’t survive without concealer either, I think it’s because we’re so pale it makes dark circles look so bad! Your dog is the cutest and I really loved the makeup post with your boyfriend!

    I can’t wait to meet all of you Blogger Babes – it need to happen ASAP!!
    I love reading these kind of posts and getting to know everyone more. So glad you started blogging otherwise the Blogger Babes might not even be a thing!!

  33. Julia says:

    Sometimes I get embarrassed about how empathetic I am, so it’s refreshing to hear how that’s something you value about yourself!

      It’s definitely a huge setback sometimes as I get so invested in some peoples feelings without wanting to! But I like it as it means I care a lot more x
