Hello friendly people! I was tagged by the lovely Nicole Rae to take part in the ‘Me-Time’ tag! If there’s anyone who needs a (un)healthy dose of me-time to function, it’s this girl. So, what do I do for me-time? Let’s learn together!
What do you watch or read during me-time?
Is it cheating to say I read whatever is happening on Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram at the time? Because that’s a fact. I also love reading memoirs – Brain on Fire, Unbearable Lightness, and Eat, Pray, Love are three of my favourites. You can also find me reading articles on Jezebel or Cracked, and the occasional Onion or Digg article that my boyfriend forwards to me. As far as ‘watching’.. I’m currently obsessed with Pretty Little Liars – I’m marathoning it on Netflix.
What do you wear during me-time? #nobra
Ususally my pajamas, but it really depends on where I am. If not my pajamas, I’m usually sitting in a baggy t-shirt or over-sized sweater and my underwear. Cute, right?
What are your me-time beauty products?
Is it taboo to say my me-time beauty products MAYBE include moisturizer and that’s it? If I’m lounging around the house and have no where to be and nobody to see (except for the usual suspects), chances are I’m rocking a clean face.
Current favourite nail polish?
I’m currently obsessed with Sally Hansen Miracle Gel. If you haven’t seen me rave about it here, you really should and you’ll immediately understand why. I currently own three shades from this line (Birthday Suit, Wine Stock, and Dig Fig), though several others are at the top of my Christmas wishlist.
What do you eat/drink during me-time?
If it’s not a beer or a ceasar, it’s not me-time. As far as eating is concerned, I’m a huge sucker for snack food, so probably Kettle Chips (sea salt and vinegar all the way).
Current favourite candle?
I’m really not a huge user of candles – I much prefer wax warmers. With that being said, anything seasonal is an automatic favourite, no matter what time of year.
Do you ever have outdoor me-time?
Absolutely! I am an avid equestrian, so any time I can get in the saddle, I’m totally there. As someone who grew up in the country, it’s important to me to spend time in nature in order to feel re-energized and grounded.
Would you ever go see a movie alone?
I never have gone to see a movie alone, but I absolutely would.
Favourite online shop?
Hmmm. I pretty much do all of my shopping online, whether I’m ordering from Etsy, Forever21, Charlotte Russe, or Bed, Bath & Beyond. So I don’t know that I have a favourite. I pretty much love shopping no matter what I’m shopping for (it’s a bit of a problem).
Anything to add? What else do you do during me-time?
I’m a planner. I’m always planning my next project, goals for the future, or an event. If I’m not lounging and watching Netflix in my underwear for hours at a time, I’m lounging and in hardcore planning mode in my underwear for hours at a time. I’m also big into DIY projects, and am moving in the spring, so scouring Kijiji for someone else’s trash (and my soon to be treasure) is what I’m about right now.
