The 'This or That' Tag

This is a tag I've seen on a few blogs lately, and I was tagged by Sally from The Makeup Directory and  Sammi from MaterialGurl88 (who also changed some questions to be more Australian friendly!)

Blush or Bronzer? Blush for sure! I have a hard time making bronzer work for my pale skin so I just stick to blush.

Lip Gloss or Lipstick? Lipstick is my favourite kind of makeup!

Eyeliner or Mascara? Mascara is something that I always use, no matter what look I'm going for or how much time I spend

Foundation or Concealer? I rarely use concealer, just under eye concealer whenever I haven't gotten enough sleep or when I'm going out at night. I almost always use foundation though.

Neutral or Colour Eyeshadow? Neutral! I find it hard to wear coloured eyeshadow without looking too 'done up'. Neutrals are always

Pressed or Loose Eyeshadow? Pressed. Loose shadows scare me.

Brushes or Sponges? Brushes. I've never used a sponge to apply my foundation before.

Opi or China Glaze? I've never actually tried China Glaze! I never got around to making an order for some, so I'll have to say OPI because I have a little collection, even though I'd rather stick to cheaper polish like Ulta3.

Long or Short? I'd really like to have long healthy nails, but my nails are in a horrible condition so it's hard to grow them.

Acrylic or Natural? Natural. I do love the length strength acrylic nails give you, but then when you take them off your natural nails are destroyed.

Brights or Darks? I love bright colours!

Flower or No Flower? I should try doing a flower. But I think that would be lame. I prefer to use nail guide stickers and doing polka dots.

Perfume or Body Splash? Perfume. Always smells nicer.

Lotion or Body Butter? I have really dry skin so I love using body butters.

Body wash or Soap? Body wash and scrub.

Lush or other Bath Company? I can't choose between Lush and The Body Shop! Please don't make me.

Jeans or Sweat Pants? Jeans. I'm not a big fan of wearing trackies, even around the house.

Long Sleeve or Short? Short. I only own a handful of long sleeved tops/dresses and they're all 3/4 sleeve and I usually push them up above my elbow anyway.

Dresses or Skirts? I'm definitely a dress girl. I own a few skirts, but I don't really own any nice tops to wear them with.

Stripes or Plaid?
I love stripes.

Flip Flops or Sandals? Sandals. I only ever wear Flip Flops to the beach.

Scarves or Hats? I like wearing scarves, but only when it's cold.

Studs or Dangly Earrings? Studs. I had my ears stretched to 8mm, and even though I took them out over a year ago, they haven't quite shrunk back down, so wearing anything other than studs looks weird.

Necklaces or Bracelets? Necklaces. I don't like wearing bacelets much because I get eczema on my wrists a lot.

Heels or Flats? Flats! Even though I'm tiny, I prefer to be able to walk properly. I don't mind wearing heels on the odd occasion when I go out drinking or to dinner, but I even wore flats to my uni graduation!

Cowboy Boots or Riding Boots? I like a good pair of ankle boots. I wouldn't mind a pair of cowboy boots (for the novelty, mostly) but otherwise neither!

Jacket or Hoodie? I'm a cardigan girl. I wear hoodies more when I'm being lazy and it's cold.

Cotton On or Valley Girl? (original question - Forever 21 or Charlotte Rousse?) I work at Cotton On so I should choose that, but I've always preferred the dresses at Valley Girl. Although, I haven't stepped foot in Valley Girl in a very long time (being poor and not being able to wear their clothes at work), and I kind of want to buy everything in Cotton On at the moment.

Forever New or Portmans? (original question - Abercrombie or Hollister?) 
I really don't f

David Jones or Myer? (original question - Saks 5th Avenue or Nordstroms?) I prefer Myer, I don't really feel like I fit in at David Jones, so I much prefer Myer.

Curly or Straight? I like to wear my hair curly. It's naturally curly so it's a lot easier than spending 15 minutes straightening it.

Bun or Ponytail? Ponytail

Bobby Pins or Butterfly Clips? I only really use a bobby pin to put my fringe back when I'm doing my make up or washing my face.

Hair Spray or Gel? I don't use either!

Long or Short? Long Hair! I had to cut my hair really short (I had a Ramona Flowers hair cut!) the year before last because I bleached the crap out of it and it was all falling out. 18 months later and my hair still isn't as long as I want it :(

Light or Dark? I suit darker hair, and it's so much easier to maintain.

Side Sweep Bangs or Full Bangs? I prefer my hair with a fringe. Since high school I've alternated with side fringe and full fringe every few months. I've had a side fringe for a while now and I'm thinking of getting it cut to a full fringe before I go to England.

Up or Down? I prefer to have my hair up. It gets in my way too much down!

Rain or Shine? I love the rain, it smells pretty and it makes it not so hot.

Summer or Winter? I definitely prefer winter! I'd rather be rugged up and toasty than hot and sweaty!

Autumn or Spring? I would prefer spring, but I'm terrified of swooping magpies, so I'll have to go autumn. Lucky, because I get 2 autumns this year!

Chocolate or Vanilla? Is this even a question? Chocolate, duh!

East or West coast? I don't really care? I went to Perth for a holiday and it was really nice seeing the sun set over the water.


  1. I loved this tag, I need to do it! I agree with you on most of these answers haha, I love your skirt too.

    1. I'd love to read your answers! The skirt is a dress from allie that I decided to get even though its a size too small, so I've only been able to wear it handful of times when I don't feel like breathing, haha.

  2. My answers are pretty similar to yours :)
    I prefer blush, lipstick and foundation too :)

  3. I really like this tag! I love dresses too. They're so much easier than skirts!

    1. Dresses you just put on and don't have to worry about whether the top goes with the bottom.

  4. I LOVE the hair photo with the crimped hair! Excellent!
    How can you love the rain?? Are you mad?!! Come to Ireland and you'll never like the rain again hahaha
    Loved the post. Really great answers

    1. I probably like the rain so much because of how long Australia was in drought. I'll hopefully be heading over to Ireland sometime during my stay in England! But I doubt it'll sway my opinion :p

  5. We almost have the same answers for everything! Oh and I also work at cotton on/rubi shoes! haha x

  6. Thats so cool that you work at cotton on. I absolutely lovelovelove that place. This was such a fun tag :)
