Would You Rather Tag

Hey all! My home internet has been on the fritz, so I haven't been able to put up any of my planned posts this week. I took some photos of items from my NARS junkie box set, plus my new NARS Petite Monstre lippie, so once my internet issues have been solved, I'll hopefully get those up soon.

In the meantime, I'm doing this fun tag questionnaire from GYC's blog.

So would you rather...

1.Be extremely beautiful or extremely intelligent?
Well, as much as I'd like to answer the politically correct way, I've noticed through observation how much better those in the extremely beautiful category get treated compared to us plain janes. So for once, I would love to know what it's like to be extremely beautiful!

2. Go without brushing your teeth for a year or go without washing your hair for a year?
Oh yuck, this is a hard one! I'll say teeth, because I guess I could chew lots of gum and floss. My hair is super fine, and if I don't wash it every day, it's not a pretty sight!

3. Be Rich or Famous?
Rich. Rich and happily anonymous

4. Have an amazing shoe collection or an amazing makeup collection?
Well that's obvious, given the theme of my blog. Makeup all the way!

5. Be able to sing or be able to dance?
I'll say dance, specifically ballet. I admire the grace and litheness that is inherent in all ballet dancers. And once I see the new movie Black Swan, I know I'm going to want to enroll in a ballet class pronto (especially if I have a teacher as hot as Vincent Cassel) On a random note, here is the awesome trailer:

6. Be stranded on a Desert Island or in the Desert?
Well thanks to my boyfriend, I've watched enough Discovery Channel survivor shows to deduce that island living is a bit easier when you're stranded.

7. Have a Computer or a TV?
Computer, since you can still watch TV on the computer (provided of course your internet isn't jacked up like mine!)

8. Wear spots or stripes for the rest of your life?
Easiest question to answer by far, as I am a stripes devotee! I must have 10 striped shirts alone. I like how French they look :-)

9. Drink out of a Teacup or a Mug?
Teacup! So much more romantic! I actually used to collect teacups for awhile.

10. Receive a bunch of Flowers or a box of chocolates?
Though I love flowers, I'll go with chocolate since I have a sweet tooth and need a nightly truffle before bedtime.

11. Have a hug or a Kiss from someone you love?
A nice bear hug! My favorite are when you are close enough to smell the fragrant detergent of their clothes (weird, I know)

12. Wear Converse or Stilettos?
Converse, I went through a high-heel stiletto phase in college, and I'm over it, save for special occasions.

13. Meet Johnny Depp or Robert Pattinson?
Dude, seriously? If you don't pick Johnny, something is wrong with you! I don't have a huge crush on him, but he has got to be the coolest actor around. I want to thank him for Edward Scisscorhands, Benny & Joon, Gilbert Grape and countless other movies!

14. Be a Fairy or a Mermaid?
Fairy, I actually hate the ocean. Plus I want wings!

15. A Coffee or a Cup of Tea?
Strong Vietnamese coffee with condensed milk

16. Pink nails or Blue nails
Either, I love both

17. Live somewhere sunny or somwhere cold?
Sunny. As much as I find cloud cover romantic, I can't live in it if I have to drive to work everyday in rain and snow.

18. Have an amazing house or an amazing car?
House...who seriously answers car?

19. Be kind or funny?
Eh, I'd have to flip a coin on that one

20. Eat Sweets or Cake?
They're not the same thing?

21. Hold a Tarantula or a Snake?
Snake, they feel so cool!

22. Wear a necklace or a ring?
Necklace, rings actually end up annoying me, especially if I'm typing a lot.

23. If you had to choose, lose your sight or your hearing? else would I be able to oogle upcoming makeup collections!


  1. Fun quiz! I think I agree on most points... maybe not the cake vs. sweets though. Definitely cake. I'm excited about the NARS junkie pics---- I didn't get it myself, partially because there aren't that many good pics of it online. Oh, and of matryoshkas--- have you seen the LUSH matryoshka bath bomb / soap?

  2. Unfortunately not yet! When I saw the list of Lush's holiday goodies, my little heart was set on getting that Matryoshka soap! I didn't see it online initially, but I'm going to check their website to see if they finally put it up. I did hint to my mom though that it would make an awesome stocking stuffer gift :-)

    Hopefully I'll get the junkie set up by tonight or tomorrow - the e/s palette is really awesome!

  3. oh! what a fun tag! I hope to see your NARS photo soon!
