So Roselyn tagged me to share six quirky facts about myself, and here goes!

  • I love doing jigsaw puzzles, like insanely large ones. The largest I’ve ever done was 12,000 pieces, and it was of the New York City skyline pre-9/11. I actually have it framed in three chunks. Someday I’ll have a house where I have a wall long enough that I can hang it on!
  • You know logic puzzles? The ones where you have to figure out who did what and when they did it with what vehicle or something like that. I was so excited to take the LSAT just because you got to practice logic games, LOL.
  • I used to edit ten online magazines when I was age 13 to 18 (yes, seriously, ten!). They were “zines” that I distributed via email on AOL. I think the most subscribers I ever had for one individual magazine was around 5,000.
  • I graduated with 300 units from my undergraduate institution, where the minimum amount to graduate was 180, in three years. (Too bad my GPA wasn’t particularly outstanding, above a 3, but yeah — don’t rush through college!)
  • I’m terribly allergic to rodents (including guinea pigs, which I’ve always loved) and cats, and I’m even a bit allergic to dogs (!).
  • I hate law school with a passion!

Six quirky BEAUTY-related facts…

  • I hate the way upper lash liner looks and feels on me… I swear, it makes my lids feel so heavy and droopy.
  • I’m utterly confounded by the vast amount of ingredients in products, not to mention all of the products available.
  • Beauty blogging has opened up an entire realm of brands, products, and knowledge I never knew before.
  • I am addicted to chapstick, and I prefer all my lip balm to be in stick form.
  • I’ve put vaseline on my lips everyday night since I was five.
  • I am an utter dunce when it comes to applying false eyelashes! I either will get it done SUPER quick or it’ll take me an hour to get one side done.

I could tag other bloggers, but why can’t I just keep tagging… YOU! Share six quirky facts about you ;) Oh, and if you like a challenge, share six quirky BEAUTY-related facts about yourself, too!

    My Facts:
    1. I think nuts ruin all desserts!
    2. I can roll my tongue upside down and into 1, 2, and 3 curls.
    3. I can twirl my pen around my thumb forward and backward.
    4. I don’t like to travel… at all.
    5. You know those pictures that you have to stare “through” to see the picture, and it’s supposed to jump out at you in 3D? Well, I can’t do those. I’ve really tried, and I just can’t.
    6. I teach 7th and 8th graders because I really love kids that age, and I loved middle school when I was in it!

    Beauty Quirks…
    1. I sleep with my makeup on almost every night, and I’ve never had any problems with it.
    2. I don’t really use lip liner very often.
    3. I’m a hoarder and love collecting things – so I often buy makeup just to have as a part of my collection, but don’t intend on wearing much.
    4. I’m a total sucker for LE stuff.
    5. I don’t set money limits when I buy make-up. And if I like two things, I always get both. :-)
    6. I always carry at least 5-10 different lip glosses and lipsticks with me…just so I can have options hehe :-)

    • Nuts ruin all desserts?! OMG, I’m terrible at thsoe 3D things, too.

      Wow, you sleep with make on nearly every night? You are craz, girl! I’m glad it doesn’t break you out! Your skin is a tough sonofagun ;)

      As a teacher, do you wear fun makeup to school or do you keep it “professional”?

      • Avatar of Heather Heather

        I wear all kinds of fun and crazy make-up to school. The kids love it – I’ve even had some boys compliment me on how I “paint my eyes” hehe. Some girls take pictures of my eyes and collect the colors: “Oh Miss, you have green today! Lemme take a picture!” It’s fun :-)

        And yes, nuts ruin ALL desserts!

    Six quirky facts about me:

    1) I hate Cilantro (Corriander in the U.K). Especially when it’s piled on top of food to garnish it. Why would you do that? Why?
    2) Whenever somebody I know passes away, I dream about it happening the night before and wake up totally freaked out. It happened just four days back actually…
    3) I’m allergic to anything small enough to get up my nasal passages…dust, pollen, powdery deodourant and especially Lilies!!
    4) I can fall asleep anytime, anywhere. In the car, train, planes, standing up on the underground…just give me 5 minutes and I’m gone.
    5) I can never listen to a song all the way through on my iPod. I get bored a minute in and switch, and then go back to the previous song and do the same again!

    Six beauty quirks:

    1) No matter what colour, shade or tone of foundation I use, my face looks like Casper in photographs…and I’m Indian (NC35)!! Even if I wear a darker shade with no SPF and no reflective base etc, I still come out white as a sheet!
    2) I have trillions of lipsticks & lipglosses and all the expensive ones, like Dior, YSL etc are the ones that don’t really suit me much. The cheapo ones I have however that cost me a couple of bucks are the ones I used for my graduation, engagement and will probably also wear on my wedding day!
    3) I still haven’t found the perfect styling product for my curly/wavy hair…so I just don’t wash out my conditioner and it makes my curls look great!
    4) Right now I have 4 different mascaras in my bag…none of which I have used in months! They just have to be there….
    5) I knew I had SERIOUS make up obsession issues when I was en route to see my b/f after he had a car accident (it wasn’t serious,he was just freaked out but not hurt at all) and I stopped off at MAC to buy a lipstick…I was repulsed at myself and swear I am not selfish…I really think it was retail therapy!!!

    • Hey Peri!

      You know, I hate it when they garnish food with it, too — I don’t mind the taste when it’s already mixed in or whatever, but I don’t like the texture of it when it’s all by itself. Don’t allergies suck? Grr. When spring started bloomin’, I thought I was giong to die!! I admire your sleeping abilities ;)

      Do you have a bad photographer!?! LOL. Maybe it’s not you, it’s the camera/flash they’re using!

      Oh wow, four mascaras?! Which ones are they?

      • Peri

        Hey Christine!

        The four mascaras are MAC Plushlash, L’Oreal Telescopic, Bourjois Extreme Clubbing and Sephora Curling Mascara which was a total waste of money!!!

        I do love Plushlash and also Telescopic because of the teeny tiny comb but I think I’ll be going for Diorshow on my wedding day for it’s waterproof and non-flaking qualities – what do you think??

    • Saira

  5. Sanayhs

    1. I’m allergic to a bunch of things, but, most peculiar of them all is a steroid called pulmicort. On its own, pulmicort has the opposite of the desired effect and makes me stop breathing. However, when combined with other things in a drug called symbicort, it helps my breathing immensely! (I’m rather asthmatic, by the way).

    2. My hair has been pretty much every colour you can think of, at least in streaks, if not full head. Exceptions: yellow or gray/silver/platinum.

    3. My room can be a total mess, but I’m absolutely fanatical about having collections (dvd, books, cds, makeup, etc) organized. Makeup is divided into categories and other things are alphabetized. I alphabetize because then I know other people can figure out the system, too, and put things back properly. :D

    4. I can rarely find women’s sneakers to fit my feet, so I’ve been buying men’s sneakers for years. The plus? They’re a better made product and last longer!

    5. I used to be such a fiend for cheese that people would give me large blocks of cheese as presents. I’ve settled down some on that front.

    6. My room is my cave. The only other person permitted entrance other than myself is my boyfriend. I get very upset if people go in without explicit permission – I feel invaded then.

    Round two!

    1. I pretty much never curl my lashes. They’re long and I’m quite content with how they frame my eyes as is. They are also rather bad at holding any added curl. :D

    2. Eyelash curlers remind me of torture tools.

    3. I very, very rarely use pencil eyeliners – I just don’t find I get enough precision (I’m all about the fluidline with a brush). I also almost never use anything on my waterline.

    4. I can’t deal with navy mascara. It reminds me of my mother’s spidery lashes. No thanks.

    5. For years and years I never bothered with makeup because I had only tried drugstore and found it useless – there was no real colour payoff and it just came off anyway, so why bother?

    6. My friends make fun of me for my makeup addiction, but admit that mine is healthier/takes up less space than theirs, and whenever they have a makeup/beauty question they come to me!

    • Morning, Sanayhs :D How do you pronounce your name, btw? You don’t even want to know how I’m pronouncing it in my head, LOL.

      I used to buy mens sneakers, too, but only because I liked the style better! I hate sneakers for the most part, though. I have some white and pink Nike Shocks, and that’s about it. I know what you mean about your room! When I had to share a dorm with another person, I was sooo creeped out when someone would sit on my bed or something. I was like umm, invaded!

      What’s your brush of choice with fluidline? And lol@the navy mascara. How funny!

      • Sanayhs

        suh-NAY-iss. :) I hear a lot of pronunciations of it, it’s always fun. My last name is pretty straight forward, but people mess that up, too. They often try to make it more French than it is. Hey, doesn’t bother me, I just sit back and giggle.

        I generally use the 208 with fluidline. Occasionally I’ll break out the 266 or the 210, but I usually stick to my 208.

        I wear sneakers to work, or occasionally some fun printed canvas vans for on the run. I have a pair with swirls and skulls and whatnot on them, and they amuse me.

        I had a roommate in my dorm room for about a month. I was delighted when she moved to a single room and no one else moved in with me. :D

    • Charlotte

      3. My room can be a total mess, but I’m absolutely fanatical about having collections (dvd, books, cds, makeup, etc) organized. Makeup is divided into categories and other things are alphabetized. I alphabetize because then I know other people can figure out the system, too, and put things back properly. :D

      I am the exact same way!!!

  6. 6 Facts about me:
    1. I don’t really like chocolate EXCEPT for white chocolate (strange, I know)
    2. My favorite comfort food is jalapeno flavored potato chips…I can scarf down a whole bag, yikes!
    3. I find it hard to sleep without my cat sleeping right next to me, kinda like my security blanket, and hello, I am 35!
    4. I can listen to the same song over and over and not get tired of it.
    5. I am a total “Law and Order” show junkie, and love all of their variations…
    6. I HATE clowns! They totally freak me out!

    6 Beauty Quirks:
    1. I always have the same “get ready” routine every morning, shower, cleanse face, brush teeth, do hair, do make up, get dressed. If I change it, I am off track ALL day!
    2. I always put on Carmex lip balm before I go to sleep at night…I think I am addicted!
    3. I use Milk of Magnesia as my face primer…helps with oil control.
    4. I ALWAYS curl my lashes. I have typical asian lashes, sparse and straight!
    5.I only wash my hair every other day, otherwise it will dry my hair out, plus that means every other day I can sleep in a little longer, lol
    6. I always use a lip liner, even with gloss!

    • traca

      shutup…milk of magnesia..i have a terribly oily t-zone. do you think it will help?

      • I have told everyone about it! I just use it on my T-zone, and it helps my mineral foundation powder go on soooo smooth! Plus, it helps fight oil ALL day. Just be sure to get the “unscented” version. Also, look at the ingredients and make sure to get the kind with water NOT oil. I just get the store brand and pour some in a smaller container…Oh, and don’t use too much or you will get a chalky residue, if that happens, you can just buff it off…good luck!

    • Hey Tammy! I am ALL about Law & Order: Criminal Intent ;) I love Goren!! I used to like SVU, too. I can do the song thing, too – depends on the song, though!

      OMG, the routine, I know, right? I have to do things in a certain order otherwise I’ll totally space and forget and be upset that I missed a crucial step all day.

    • claudia m.

    • Ohh, what kind of boutique do you own, Raven? Is it tribal fusion related? :)

      I love how we can be soo anal about our makeup vanities! What’s your favorite MAC dream?

    • I can pick up things with my toes. And pinch with them- really really hard.
    • I dont remember ppl’s name.

    • Hey Michelle! I hate tingling on my lips, especially DuWop Lip Venom tingling!!

      LOL, how much diet coke do you drink in a day?

      I LOVE when I meet readers who are new addicts :) The beginning of the addiction is so much fun!

      • Avatar of Michelle michelle

        I by a 12 pack every other day for home. That doesnt count for work. But really, prolly a six pack a day. Its kinda embarrasing. But I make myself drink I big water-32 ounce- every day.
        And I’m having so much fun with the makeup thing. Total mac addict for eyeshadow. But not for foundation and concealor. Although, I put my base on like u showed in your “dewy” tutorial- 182 brush. Love it.

        • WOW! I am impressed, lol. I don’t think I can even get that much liquid in me. Soda makes my nose feel funny so I neverr drink it.

          I’m glad you love the foundation technique I use!

    • Terry

      What does this mean? I can pick up things with my toes. And pinch with them- really really hard.

    6. I can get away with skipping mascara – which is great because it’s something I forget to do most of the time!

    • Morning, Tonee! :)

      Can you cook food, too, or are you just desserts? I’m okay with that, because you can bake me a dessert any time! How many animals do you have now?

      I’m so amazed by your ability to use three shadows or less! That sounds like a nightmare to me, lol!

      I just picked up avocado oil, jojoba oil, and tea tree oil! I don’t know what to do with them for the most part, but at least I managed to get them without spending a fortune!

      • Tonee

        Yes, I can cook too but only if I really have to. Desserts are my favorite :)

        I now have five cats (one died in February and I found two abandoned kittens in March) and two dogs.

        Jojoba oil is really good for removing make up and moisturizing dry skin. Tea tree oil works really well on spots and reduces the dark spots left by acne.

  14. Lara

    Yes, law school sucks. Just wait until you have to take the bar, it is even worse. Luckily there is solace in makeup!

  15. Romy

    Hi, I am pretty new to your website but I’m already addicted. Here are some facts about me:
    1) I’m currently studying for my LSAT and I HATE the logic games, though I love the logical reasoning questions. The logic games questions take me like 10 minutes for each question, and I usually get them wrong anyways.
    2) I am scared of anime (yes, Japanese animation). Something about it just freaks me out.
    3) I have a wicked sweet tooth.
    4) I collect coffee table books. Mostly they are about beauty (I have 3 more being shipped to me), but I have some on fashion, lots on art, cooking styles, and jewellery.
    5) Movies are a big passion of mine, I like all genres. I almost always have seen all the movies nominated for Oscars. One of my favourite places is a little independent theatre in my city that can get some of the weirdest and most interesting films.
    6) I get the hiccups really bad when I laugh too hard. Then the people around me laugh when I hiccup, then I laugh more, then I hiccup more…..It’s a vicious cycle

    Beauty Facts:
    1) I like strong, well groomed eyebrows on women. I think it makes me (and other women in general) look important and decisive.
    2) I use “bag balm” on my lips every morning. The tin it comes in is probably at least 30 years old. It is actually made to sooth chapped cow’s utters. Yes, cow’s utters!
    3) For years I searched for a mascara that wouldn’t give me “racoon eyes” after a few hours. I’d almost given up hope until I found Kiss Me Mascara by Blinc. It actually makes little tubes around you’re eyelashes and it will last all day and night.
    4) When I’m bored in meetings at work, I will give the other women in the room makeovers in my head. It’s in a nice way though; I’ll think “wouldn’t she look great with some blush and coloured gloss”.
    5) The best beauty decision I ever made was to start using oil-free foundation; my breakouts reduced greatly.
    6) I have worn bangs (sometimes blunt, sometimes long) for years, and get a lot of compliments on them. For years magazines have said that bangs are the new trend for the season.

    • Peri

      Oh wow I do mental makeovers too – they’re great fun!

      Which oil free foundation do you recommend?

    • Hey Romy!

      Good luck on the LSAT!! Aww, it’s too bad logic games aren’t your thing. I’m sure you’ll get it so you figure it out in a snap!

  20. Charlotte

    -I don’t know to swim, skate, or drive.
    -I am terrified of all amusement park/carnival rides.
    -I don’t like having guests. I also can’t stand anyone else being in my room.
    -I loathe and despise camping! I just don’t understand the appeal.
    -I love luxury stockings! I have over 100 pairs all in great condition in their original packaging. My mother-in-law started the obsession. She’s one classy lady. Most of my stockings have never been worn. I have a few pairs I’ve paid 50-80 Euro for; I’m saving them for VERY special occasions.
    -I haven’t spoken Spanish since I was child, yet I speak French with a rather thick (Mexican) Spanish accent. However, this accent is not present when I speak German.

    Beauty Quirks:
    -I don’t use styling tools or products ever, including blow dryers, hair spray, and hair dye. A brush is all I need (and shampoo/conditioner of course!).
    -I don’t go to salons or spas because I hate being touched by strangers. I do an awesome job on my own nails! I’ve been wearing the same polish for 10 days with no chipping :D
    -I clean the makeup off my face in the evening, but wait until the very last minute before I go to bed to remove my eye makeup. It’s just so pretty; I hate ruining it!
    -I will pay ridiculous prices for long discontinued items I really want, yet refuse to buy MAC in Europe, because it’s too expensive.
    -I buy lots of coral makeup because I love the color, even though I kind of hate how it looks on me (eyeshadow in particular).
    -I only swap makeup if I have multiples of the same item. I am quite determined to make every shade work for me somehow!

    • Wow! Do you plan to ever learn how to swim, skate, or drive?

      I never used to use styling tools either, but I’ve since adopted the blow dryer, lol. Only because of the T3.

      • Charlotte

        I have terribly weak ankles so skating is really out of the question. I tried to learn how to swim in 5th grade but failed the most basic class (for really little kids). I know, how horribly embarrassing. I never intended to learn how to drive, but now that I’m moving to the US I’ll probably have to. My boyfriend doesn’t know how to swim or drive either. Very unusual things to have in common!

  21. Meesh

    6 quirky things about me:
    - Nursing school turned me into a health conscious germaphobe. That and I’m always on top of well-health checkups. It drives my fiance crazy, I get fussy when we eat out…and now he knows better than to just touch my face without washing his hands!
    - I don’t have a favorite color. I think I like every single color that probably exists, and THIS is why I’m having such an issue with picking a motif for my wedding.
    - I get weak for hazelnut/chocolate ANYTHING.
    - I don’t know how many pairs of jeans I own anymore, but I do know that I spend way too much on them.
    - I get grossed out by feet, probably because I work in the health care field. I try to take care of mine real well, and I don’t even like mine! The only feet I am not grossed out by are my fiance’s (the nicest, softest feet I’ve ever seen, probably why I am marrying him)…and of course, babies.
    - I always have something to read in my bag. A magazine, nursing literature, a book for leisure, or an NCLEX-RN book…I have to have something to read in case I get a free hour or two in my schedule at work or if I’m out and about.

    6 beauty-related quirks:
    - I’ve tried homemade beauty treatments (egg whites wash for brighter skin, aspirin honey masks, olive oil hair treatments) and I end up liking them, but they become way too time-consuming for me.
    - I’ve procured a large amount of “skin-whitening” products from Asia, compliments of my mom. I’ve got a light olive complexion, but the products helped make my pores smaller and they also give me little extra glow.
    - In 1995, I discovered MAC for the first time (I was 15) and from that point I told myself that one day I’d own all those eyeshadows. Well, I managed to collect way BEYOND what I initially told myself, and when I discovered the PRO line…well let’s just say my collection has always been “out of control”.
    - Other than MAC, I’m addicted to Creme de La Mer products as well. I think if you’re over 25 and you haven’t tried one of their products at least once, you should stop by a counter and ask for samples.
    - I do my own nails, too! I find my own manicuring and pedicuring therapeutic, and for me it’s a relief to know that I’m using my own tools. I love when people ask me where I got my nails done at LOL.
    - The papaya is my wonderfruit. I have to have it a couple times a week. Does wonders for my skin, and makes me feel good LOL. Supposedly there are anti-aging benefits but heck, I just love having it for breakfast!

    • Hey Caroline!

      How interesting that you live in a haunted village and have not witnessed anything!

      What’s your favorite hair brand?

  31. Candice

    - I like things that are classified as “redneck” like Nascar and country music, but I’m actually the high class type of girl.

    - I’ve tried everything to stop biting my nails but when they grow they are very thin and they bend and tear easily, so I feel like it’s useless to try to stop.

    - The only foods I don’t like are raisons and peas. I’m not a big fan of bacon either. My favorite food is hamburgers.

    - I believe in my heart I was born to be a race car driver, I can’t see myself doing anything else.

    - I’ve never been happy with my hair. When I get it done, they never cut it the way I wanted it, even if I came in with a picture. And when I get it dyed it never turns out. For example, I wanted my hair black with blue and purple streaks, and it turned out purple/black with dark blonde streaks (?). One time I wanted to get my hair dyed blonde, and I ended up with yellow hair that was orangey in spots and a blistered scalp, I actually bawled in the salon because it hurt so badly. When I get it cut they always cut it way too short, or it ends up looking the same as it did when I walked in.

    - I look awful in pictures. Before I leave the house, I look in the mirror, and I think ‘I look okay, I shouldn’t be so hard on myself’. And then when we go out, and someone takes a picture of me, I look awful in it! It totally kills my self esteem. I think ‘wow I don’t really look like that do I?’ It makes me want to cry everytime, and it ruins my night.

    Beauty Facts:

    - Whenever I line my bottom lash line, I can never get it to look right, but it doesn’t look right without it, either.

    - I usually focus on my makeup more than my hair. I will straighten it at the most.

    - I have a tons of freckles on my arms, and a few faded ones on my face. I hate them but my bf loves them. I also have one freckle on both the palms of my hands, in the same spot. I don’t get them anywhere else. I can’t find a foundation that will cover them entirely.

    - I don’t like shimmer on my face, besides my eyes and lips.

    - I’ve never needed to use lotion

    - I always buy eyeshadows over anything else. Even though I need foundation, brushes, or lipstick/gloss (I only have one of each), I’ll buy shadows instead.

    Hey Christine

    I own about 29 rubber duckies I haven’t been collecting them my entire life though I have no idea when I started deciding I should collect them. My favorite one is a black devil duck with a skull and crossbones on the chest part and a white eye patch and he is known as Chuck the Pirate duck LOL (no I did not name him that btw) My other favorite duck isn’t a rubber one, it’s a soft stuffed one that is supposed to kinda look like an angry duck and it quacks when you squeeze it. I got that as a present from a friend when I was upset about something because for some reason the way it quacks makes me bust up laughing. The UD eyeshadow is Graffiti. It’s like a bright green that either can be like an acid green or close to a bright teal almost depending on how it’s done.

    HEHEH I just stumbled upon this and even though it’s a year late, these were really fun to read and made me remember all my weird quirks:
    Beauty:
    -I paint my nails every two days. When two days is up, I remove the old polish and apply a new color. IT TAKES FOREVER!
    -During winter, I use (on average) 5-6 facial products every day. During summer I use 2.
    -I cannot use pencil eyeliners because I can’t draw a straight line
    -In a minor earthquake a couple years ago, my makeup collection in its drawers fell off my desk (not a great place to keep makeup i know) and every single pressed powder product cracked
    -I’ve never finished a product (besides a mascara) before deciding that it was expired and had to be tossed.

    Personal:
    -When I’m shopping in stores with marble floors, I don’t like to step on the cracks between the tiles. A childhood habit, I guess.
    -When I buy salads at a store, I go to a special deli where they chop your salad for you afterwards. I have to pay for the extra seven miles of gas and the five dollar chop charge. All for a salad with smaller pieces of lettuce.
    -I have a lot of boxes and containers around my house, but 70% of them have no contents
    -When I was younger I wanted to be a dolphin trainer really badly. For some reason, I thought that dolphins knew sign language (I wasn’t very bright, I guess. NO FINGERS. JUST FLIPPERS. hahah) so I learned it. Little did I know…….
    -One time someone stole a bar of wrapped up Lush soap from my bathroom and I didn’t know which guest it was. Now, I don’t let guests use the bathroom.

    Nice quirks everyone, fun stuff to read. In theory dolphins do know sign language as they learn to read the signs trainers use to make them do tricks but obviously no they can’t sign back to you but animals do have noises and gestures they use to communicate back to us instead. The dolphins and whales will come back to the trainers because they like to be petted or scratched in reward for doing what they did right or they may make a happy squeeling noise or something. Sorry didn’t mean to get so into that explanation….was doing bio homework with book in front of me as I read that LOL
