Not another tag

Hi everyone, my lovely friend Catherine from beauty is in the eye of the beholder tagged me in Hayley from tea party beautys tag. 

The Rules

You must include both Hayley & the person who tagged you (which is Catherine) in your post (and the rules too). 
Once you've answered all your questions you need to tag 5 people.
Also if you tweet Hayley (@teapartybeauty) and myself (@maccers26) the link to your post, we will RT. 
If you are tagged & don't do the post you will have bad luck for 68.5 years. FACT. 

You've made it BIG & bagged some VIP Fashion Week tickets. You lucky devil you. But in your rush to get there & get yourself noticed you forgot your VIP Passes. The guy on the door says he will cut you a deal, you can go in only if you sacrifice either your Front Row seat, backstage privileges or goody bag. What's it gonna be? 

Hmm it depends whether I knew what was in the goody bag in advance! Since I've mad it big I may not even need/want it! If the goody bag is good then I'd give up my front row seat, but if I can't find out about it then I'd sacrifice the goody bag! 

You're making a new Subscription box, what 4 items & which dreaded perfume sample would you include in it? 

I have actually thought about making a box, but it wouldn't be subscription and you would KNOW what you are buying! Instead maybe this or maybe that! Anyway I think it'd be more make up based, I'd like to have different themed ones if it was a subscription box! I'd include an eye shadow, a lip stick/gloss, an eye liner and a blusher, a nice mix of everything. As for the sample, it'd be Hugo Boss woman, it's my favourite perfume so I'd steal a couple! :p

What's your biggest blogging bug bear? The one thing guaranteed to make your blood boil & have you screaming/eye rolling at your laptop?

Actually this happened the other day! There was a debate about how to blog on a budget, during the #BBloggers chat. There was many great suggestions. One of my suggestions was to buy online. Unfortunately I was inundated with angry replies saying everything online is fake etc. I was linked an article where someone had an allergic reaction to fake MAC products. This is because they bought a £25 product for under £10 new, if that doesn't ring alarm bells of fake then well you get what you pay for! I only make 50p-£1 savings and official branded websites, they can have online only deals, the Body shop being one I use often! I was really annoyed how people reacted to a genuine good way of saving money/blogging on a budget as a result of stupidity, if you're going to buy from dodgy websites, buying from abroad, buying a product that is ridiculously under priced then in my opinion and sorry if it offends but you deserve to get fake products! You don't get something for nothing! Also those who are against PR samples! I would be annoyed if people didn't mark PR sample blog posts, but everyone I follow clearly marks them. If you really don't like PR samples then don't read those blog posts! Anyway rant over...!
No more joining in Twitter chats only slightly relevant to your blog. You can only join in one blogger chat a week for the rest of your blogging days, which one's it gonna be & why? 
It would be the #BBlogger chats, I've met some nice people as a result of them and I feel it's one of the biggest chats out there for beauty bloggers!
'Fess up, do you actually own any MAC? If so what don't you like about the product?
Nope! I blog on a budget, as a uni student MAC is way out of my price range! One MAC product could be a week's worth of food for a uni student! 
The blogging Gods ban arm swatching, which body part will you swatch on now?
Oh I usually swatch on my hand! I only swatch on my arm if I'm reviewing a palette as I only have small hands!
You can no longer have Yankee Candles & Perfume Bottles in the background of your shots, what other inanimate object will you choose?
I never do this, as much as they make beautiful pictures, I think they are too distracting from the actual thing you are reviewing! I personally like a white background as I am boring! 
Your blogs Instagram is it for cats or meal shots?
It's mainly for selfies and anything I buy or is bought for me, I need to use it more! My instagram can be found here!

I am tagging
