Q+A tag

I was tagged by the super lovely Holly to do this questions and answers tag, so i thought i might as well :).  You can read her answers here!  I do enjoy doing & reading these tags, so if you do this one, link it in a comment!  Hope you enjoy my answers as well as the irrelevant (but pretty :) photos haha ♥

1. What's your dream job?
I would love to do something art-related, whether it's making music, being a photographer, working in fashion, etc.  I can't see myself being happy if i don't have art in my life!  Although i would love working in a artsy-type of job, realistically i suppose it can't really happen.  But yeah, if i could choose it would be something along those lines.

2. What is your favorite fragrance for winter?
I admittedly don't have a single fragrance suitable for winter!  I would love something a bit warmer or spicier, but i can't be bothered to go out & search for a new perfume, haha.  Any recommendations? :)

3. How do you take your tea/coffee?
At the moment, i actually prefer hot chocolate ♥.  I like any fruity or minty tea, and don't drink coffee - wish i could say i do!  Then i could be like one of those hipsters who always have a Starbucks cup in their hand ;)

4. What is your most important beauty secret?
Take care of your skin.  Remove your makeup, wash your face, moisturize, drink plenty of water, etc!  Can't emphasize this enough.  I slip up on this all the time, but it's definitely important!

5. If you had an all expenses paid vacation anywhere, where would you go?
Hmm, this is such a tough choice!  Maybe space?  Haha :).  There's an insane amount of places i want to go, so i'd probably pick the most expensive one!  (Laura's lame).

6. If a genie popped in your lap right now and offered you three wishes, what would they be?
-Megan Fox's or Katy Perry's figure!  Been feeling really crap about my body lately.
-A sexy boyfriend.  Nuff said?
-For my family to be happy & healthy.

7. If you could only have breakfast, lunch, dinner, or dessert foods for the rest of your life, which one would you pick?
In an ideal world, desserts would be healthy & i would choose that.  Or breakfast food, i LOVE breakfast food!  Waffles, mmmm.  But i suppose all those carbs would be bad for you after a while haha.  I think i would choose dinner as that has the biggest variety of food & would probably be the healthiest.

8. If you had to pick a famous person for your other half to meet, who would you choose for them?
Yo no tengo un amor :/.

9. What is your biggest makeup pet peeve?
I would have to say when really gorgeous girls pack on their makeup - they're naturally pretty, they don't need makeup!  Of course they're the drawn on eyebrows and visible foundation line, but those have all been said before.

10. If you could only wear one piece of jewelry for the rest of your life, what would it be?
If i ever get married, probably my wedding ring - haha.  But right now, i would probably pick something understated & delicate - something like this.  Just a tad bit of sparkle, dainty & timeless!

11. What one talent do you wish you had?
I think if i had to choose, it would be being funny or speaking well - if those are talents!  I wish i could just charm people, you know?  Like, being funny & making people laugh - sure i can do that, but it doesn't come naturally like it does for others!  Charisma would be lovely :)

12. The product you will continue to purchase?
Tresemme Tres Two Hold hairspray!  Love this hairspray, i'm probably on my third or fourth bottle of it already.  Holy grail product for sure :)

13. If you could look into the future, would you?  What would you want to know?
I honestly wouldn't.  I think if i knew something about my future, i'd constantly be anxious about it & worried about possibly changing it.  Maybe i'm looking to far into this haha.  I guess uncertainty is what makes life exciting?

14. Who is your biggest celebrity crush?  (Include pictures)
Oh lord, too many gorgeous men on this planet to just choose one!  Well, i guess i'll TRY to narrow it down... ;)
top L-R: Cillian Murphy, Mumford & Sons, Adam Levine
bottom L-R: Johnny Depp, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Andrew VanWyngarden

15. What made you start a blog?
Well, nothing/no one made me start a blog, i started it because i wanted to!  I discovered beauty videos on Youtube, then discovered the blogging community through that, and was inspired to start my own.  I guess i just wanted to have my own bit of the beauty blogging community, so that's when 'Big City Dreams' emerged.  And that's that really :).
