First Post and a Few Random Q’s

Welcome to Lipstick ‘n Lashes’ inaugural blog post! How frequently will I be posting? Not sure. What will the posts be about? Well, beauty mostly. But since I’m the webmaster {that word sounds super official, so I’m keeping that title}, there will be some random-ness thrown in here and there. Who likes to read the same things all the time anyway? Not this girl!

I’m a big fan of and frequent lurker over on Karen’s blog, with the fitting title of Makeup and Beauty Blog. If you haven’t checked her out, do it, NOW! She’s also got a sweet YouTube channel to supplement her blog posts.   This week she posted a list of questions, which she answered, and asked her readers to do the same. So…true to form, I’ll bite and do what I’m told. Besides, how better to get to know me than with a rando Q&A? Here goes:

  1. Describe your perfect hair day.

Big. Hair. No, not frizzy, fried, humidity hair. I mean big, voluminous Texas hair. The higher the hair the closer to God y’all! I realize I’m not from Texas, nor can I really pull off a y’all. However, I LOVE big hair – when I have the time {and the weather permits} I do my hair in big voluminous curls. I think it looks better with my face shape and has the added bonus of generally lasting and looking great for a day or two.

  1. What’s your stance on duck-face selfies?

I’m not a huge fan and am of the belief that there’s a time and place for them. If you’re all being silly, by all means, rock a duck face. But if you legitimately pose like this {especially for a selfie}, I will not hesitate to laugh.

  1. When was the last time you tried some nail art, and how did it turn out?

I get my nails done, so never really myself. I think the last time I did was when I was a young teen. I’ve not got much patience for finicky things and it takes years of practice and perfection to make nail art look great. I leave that to the pros at my nail salon.

  1. 3 things you’d never, ever wear?

Socks and sandals as a combo, most things orange {not knocking people who do, it just looks terrible on me and it’s not my fave colour}, and orthodic shoes {for the next 30 years, at least!}.

  1. Today I’m feeling __________.

Excited and a little tired. It was a busy day, but I’m excited to be coming home and blogging on LnL for the VERY. FIRST. TIME.


That’s a little about me, and the conclusion of my very first blog post. Feel free to answer the questions for yourself in the comments below. I’d love to get to know you! Don’t forget to check out Karen’s blog post and see her answers.
