Get to Know Me: The Beauty Blogger Tag

Hey everyone!  So since I'm fairly new to the whole beauty blogging community I thought I would do the Get to Know Me Tag!  I know that no one tagged me but lets pretend that someone did.

1. Is your hair naturally curly or straight?
My hair is super curly!

2. Do you dye it yourself or go to a salon?
I go to a salon because I don't trust myself to dye my own hair.

3. Do you wear the same style everyday, or do you change it?
My hair is so long, curly, and thick that its hard to do anything with it that I can make look good so I pretty much wear it in a bun everyday.

4. Do you do your own mani/pedi or go to a salon?
Most of the time I do my own, but if there is a special occasion coming up where I will be wearing open toed shoes/sandals I sometimes get a pedicure at a salon. 

5. How often do you change your nail polish?
Well lately I haven't been wearing any nail polish on my nails but when I do I usually change it about every week or every two weeks depending how long it lasts.  For my toes I wait until most of it's chipped off before repainting them.

6. Do you polish your toes in the winter or just the summer?
I tend to have my toes painted all year round but that's only because in the winter my polish tends to last longer.

7. How long does it take for you to put on makeup?
Well since I'm newer to makeup and I like to take my time, it takes me about 30 minutes.

8. What do you do first? Face or eyes?
That depends, if I'm wearing a BB cream or foundation I do that first then my eyes.  But if I'm not wearing a BB cream or foundation, I do my eyes then my cheeks.

9. Do you collect makeup or just buy what you need when you need it?
Umm....I guess you could say I collect makeup.  I have a pretty small collection but a lot of the time I like to try new looks and new colors so I do have a bit more then I need.  But I use pretty much use all of the makeup I buy, so it's not like I buy something and just have it for my collection and never get to using it because I have so much other stuff.  So you could say I collect makeup but I use everything I buy.

10. How often do you wear false eyelashes?
I have actually never worn false eyelashes before.  I have never really felt the need to wear them before.  My lashes are pretty long which can be quite annoying at times.  But I would love to try false eyelashes sometime in the future.

11. Do you wear a full face of makeup everyday?
Not really, I don't wear a full face of makeup a lot.  Especially since it's summer and I haven't really left the house much.

12. Do you wear makeup when you're home alone or with family?
Not always, but sometimes when I'm home alone I will try out new looks and products so I can review it for my blog.

13. Will you leave the house without makeup?
Yes I will, most off the time I do leave the house without makeup on.

14. How many high-end products do you have?
Well not many, I have only bought a Tarte concealer and the Urban Decay Naked Basics palette.  But I do have some high-end makeup that my mom has given me because she doesn't use it.

15. Do you plan your OOTD every night or decide when you're getting dressed?
I decide when I'm getting dressed.  I have left out clothes from the night before that I wanted to wear, but then I always change my mind in the morning.

16. How often do you change your handbag?
I don't actually carry a handbag with me everywhere.  I prefer to carry something smaller like wristlets.  I don't change my wristlet often, currently I have been using one from Vera Bradley.

17. What time do you wake up and go to sleep?
That's kind of a hard question because I have trouble sleeping and usually never go to sleep before 11:30-12ish.  As far as when I wake up, lately I have been waking up around 10.

18. How often or when do you workout?
I'm ashamed to say that I haven't been working out lately but I'm going to start trying to get in the habit of at least doing 30 minutes of cardio every other day, then slowly work it to 30 minutes of cardio everyday.  Even if it's just something simple like walking my dog.

19. Left handed or right handed?

20. How tall are you?
I'm not a hundred percent sure but I think I'm about 5 feet tall.

21. Do you speak any foreign languages?
I currently take Spanish but I am not really that good at it.

22. How many pets do you have?
I have one, a dog named Toby.

23. How often are you on Blogger?
I try to be on everyday but sometimes that doesn't always work out, so I would say about every other day.

24.  Do you usually read comments posted on blogs?
On other people's blogs, not really but on mine I do.  So if you have any thing you want to say you can post it in the comments and I will read it.

25. Do you keep a list of products to try as you see other posts?
Most of the time I keep a mental list, but if I really don't want to forget it I will put it on my phone.

26. How did you come up with your blog name?
I can't exactly remember but I think it's because my name is Alex and I blog, or something like that.  I added the 52 at the end because Alex Blogs wasn't available.  52 is just a random number I typed in.

27. What kind of camera do you use for your photographs?
I use some kind of Cannon camera, which is actually my Mom's but she never really uses it.  I don't currently have enough money saved up for a camera.  I don't know the specific name of the camera but all I know is that it's red and from Cannon.  But a lot of the time I will just use my iPhone 5 for pictures.

28. How often do you clean your house?
Not as often as I would like, but most of the times I clean it on the weekend.

29. What's your favorite color?

30. Do you swear?

31. What are you doing with the rest of your day?
I am going to be drawing(I go to school for art and I have some summer work to do) then probably watch YouTube videos on my iPad.  If I have time I am hoping to start another blog post.

Well that was quite a long tag!  I hope you guys enjoyed it and maybe learned something new about me.  I want to take a quick minute to say that I have been trying to change my blog's appearance but I am having trouble with blogger, it keeps saying that there is some type of error.  So if you have that same problem or know how to fix it, I would really appreciate if you put it in the comments.  Also if you have any requests or ideas on a blog post you want to see you can put it in the comments and I will try to do it.

Have a great day!
