Hannah at Midnight Violets (one of my favourite blogs!) tagged me a while back now but I've been very lazy with my blog lately. Shame on me. I've got some time on my hands today though, before I start work again tomorrow, so I thought I'd finally get around to doing it!  

1. Why did you start your blog? 
I started my blog initially when I was at uni. I think I have may have been on my little break then, in between leaving teacher training and starting my new Childhood Studies course.  I went as far as giving it a name then I seemed to have given up. I then picked it up again  properly last year as a distraction from my shitty relationship and shitty job hunting. 
2. What's your favourite lipstick? 
Hmm tricky as I have loads of lippies! At the moment though it is Elf's Nicely Nude. More often than not paired with MUA Intense Kisses gloss in Sealed With a Kiss. 
3. Where do you see yourself in 3 years time?
In 3 years I will be 27 and that scares me! I hope to be in a better, more stable job and living in my own place. I also hope I have won the lottery by then but I reckon that is wishful thinking. 
4. What's your favourite meal?
Again this is hard as I'm a bit food obsessed. That doesn't mean I have sophisticated tastes though so I'd probs say curry or pizza! I love a takeaway chicken tikka masala and Dominoes Texas BBQ.
5. How did you come up with the name for your blog? 
It was initially going to be a food blog, mostly based on junk and snack food and I'm very grub-ish on a lazy day- hence The Lardy Grub. 
6. Do you favour drugstore or highend products? 
Drugstore definitely. I don't have the funds for highend stuffs! 
7. What's your favourite film? 
Sad possibly but I'll always love the first 2 'Mummy' movies.
8. Who is your biggest beauty idol? 
I don't really have any idols in any area!
9. What's your current favourite skincare product?
Probably The Body Shop Seaweed Mattifying Day Cream 
10. If you could only drink one drink for the rest of your life, what would it be? 
Boring but it would have to be water. Love fizzy drinks but that wouldn't be sensible!
11. And finally, name a few bloggers you're loving - share the love!
Cherry Gumdrops
Just Me, Leah
Miss Makeup Magpie 
Maliberry Makeup
Hope, freedom & love 

I read so many great blogs though, I could be writing this list all day! 

The Questions I'm setting...
  1. What 3 makeup items could you not be without? 
  2. Bath or showers?
  3. What is the worst beauty item you have ever tried?
  4. What is your signature dish?
  5. What is your favourite way to de-stress after a rubbish day? 
  6. What would be your dream holiday destination? 
  7. What is your favourite perfume? 
  8. What was your first ever makeup item? (I do believe mine was a lilac Rimmel eyeshadow!)
  9. What spa treatment would you love to have? 
  10. What song never fails to lift your spirits? 
  11. Beauty wise what are you lusting after most right now? 
And I tag...
Anyone who wants to do it! :-D
