This Or That

I saw this tag over on the wonderful Amanda's blog, Amandalandish, and I thought it might be fun to give it a try myself. So here we go!


Blush or bronzer?
Gotta go with blush. I'm pretty pale so although I do own some bronzer, I don't use it much since it tends to look unnatural on me.

Lipgloss or lipstick?
I love them both! I don't like lipgloss that doesn't have a lot of pigmentation though. I need color on my lips.

Eyeliner or mascara?
Mascara. I wear eyeliner only on days when I have a lot of time to get ready, which is pretty much never. I'm a late sleeper, what can I say?

Foundation or concealer?
Foundation, so long as it offers good coverage.

Neutral or color eye shadow?
I dunno, I don't wear very much eyeshadow since I have hooded eyelids. Yeah, it sucks. But when I do, I have an Urban Decay Naked pallete and a more colorful Urban Decay palette that I use pretty equally.

Pressed or loose eyeshadow?
Pressed, loose makes too much of a mess.

Brushes or sponges?
Brushes all the way. I feel like sponges don't apply as well on my skin and I think they are just germ traps.


China Glaze or OPI?
Probably OPI, but I really, really love China Glaze too! It's such a difficult choice that I would say it's almost a tie.

Long or short?
I don't like super long nails but I also don't like stubbies on me. So somewhere in between is how I usually try to keep mine.

Acrylic or natural?

Brights or darks?
Brights. I do wear vamps but nothing makes me happier than a nice shot of color!

Flower or no flower?
Err, like...nail art? Is that what we're talking about? If so, then I have to say nail art is a no-go for me. I really like seeing it on other people but I have zero artistic talent so I don't attempt it on my own nails much.


Perfume or body splash?
Perfume! I wear several different perfumes but recently I've fallen in love with Rihanna's. I was wary because of the celeb association but it really is a fantastic scent.

Lotion or body butter?
Body butter is my favorite! I love the Burt's Bees ones, they're nice and thick.

Body wash or soap?
I prefer body wash. I have one that smells like cake. :)

Lush or other bath company?
I've actually never shopped at Lush. I'm not very into the whole body lotions, cremes, etc. to be honest.


Jeans or sweat pants?
Jeans, jeans, jeans. I always tell my friends that I will never, ever leave the house in sweat pants; it's one of my pet peeves. Even when we used to have 4 AM fire alarms in my old dorm and I had to go stand out in the snow while I was half-asleep, I would put on actual pants. I also put on jeans to go get the mail. I'm weird, I know.

Long sleeve or short?
Short, although I don't like sleeveless.

Dresses or skirts?
I wear both but dresses are my favorite article of clothing. I wear them all the time and really don't like wearing pants all that much.

Stripes or plaid?
Stripes I guess, but I'm not a fan of either on me.

Flip flops or sandals?
Definitely sandals. I only wear flip flops to the beach.

Studs or dangly earrings?
I used to wear big doorknocker earrings in high school all the time. Now I don't really wear earrings all that much, but I guess I'd still go with dangly.

Necklaces or bracelets?
Necklaces, but it depends on the outfit. I really like statement necklaces though; I tend to shy away from understated jewelry.

Scarves or hats?
Scarves, but I don't wear much of either.

Heels or flats?
I like heels more but I wear flats a lot because I have a permanently torn tendon in my right ankle that makes it difficult for me to wear heels for long periods of time. I still rock six-inch platform stilettos when I feel up to it though. I am obsessed with shoes!

Cowboy boots or riding boots?
Riding boots. I have a black pair I wear a lot during the fall and winter months.

Jackets or hoodies?
Jackets. I don't usually like things with hoods.

Forever 21 or Charlotte Russe?
Forever 21, but is it just me or are they getting more expensive lately?

Abercrombie or Hollister?
Death. The overpowering smell from those places alone is enough to keep me out.

Saks 5th or Nordstroms?
Since I work at a department store but it's not either of these, I am going to have to be a good employee and say neither. :)


Curly or straight?
My hair refuses to hold a curl or really respond to any type of styling, so I wear it straight almost 100% of the time.

Bun or ponytail?
Ponytail. I don't wear a ponytail much during the day but I usually sleep in one at night.

Bobby pins or butterfly clips?
Bobby pins, but I don't use either too often.

Hair spray or gel?
Hair spray. Gel usually feels too gunky for my tastes.

Long or short?
Long. I had short hair as a little kid and I hated it.

Light or dark?
I'm a natural brunette but I've been dying my hair blonde for about two years now and I love being a blonde! I like my men with dark hair though. ;)

Side swept bangs or full bangs?
I like both styles but I typically wear mine full.

Up or down?
Down. I suck at hairstyling so I'm not very adventurous about it.

Summer or winter?
Summer. The winters where I go to school are so grey and blah.

Fall or spring?
Spring, although I'm allergic to pollen pretty badly.

Chocolate or vanilla?
Chocolate, but I won't turn down either! I have more of a salt tooth than a sweet tooth though I think.

East coast or west coast?
East coast! I live in the midwest though.

  1. We're like twins, I swear...I put on jeans to take the dog out in the morning! I only wore sweatpants ONCE last year to midterms, lol. I just can't bring myself to bum it!

  3. I died reading your jeans/sweatpant and Abercrombie parts. Too funny! I'm glad you did this too!

  4. I'm glad I'm not the only one who REFUSES to wear sweatpants or shop at Abercrombie/Hollister haha. Thanks for posting this, Amanda! I had a lot of fun with it.
