Another interesting tag by my lovely blogger friend from Playing with Fashion called the ‘Get to Know Me’ tag. I have done a lot of tag posts before and this one is definitely a favorite as I get to tell my readers a lot about my personal self. So read on and let me know if you enjoyed knowing a bit more about me and my life πŸ™‚

Is your hair naturally curly or straight?

I have naturally straight and fine hair which needs a lot of regular TLC. Read my post My Hair Care Essentials to know how I take care of my fine and limp hair!

Do you wear the same style every day, or do you change it?

Definitely not! I would get bored if I had to wear the same style everyday! Fashion is all about having fun to me and I have fun trying out new ways of everything every other day. My choice of outfits also depends on my mood, the occasion and the weather.

How often do you change your nail polish?

I change my nail polish every 3rd day or when they start chipping off πŸ™‚

How long does it take for you to put on make-up?

I do not put too much of make up on a regular basis. It’s just a bit of concealer, eye liner and lip balm and I am set to go! This take me less then 5 minutes. But on special occasions when I putΒ  heavy make up on, it takes me anywhere between 30 minutes to 1 hour.

What do you do first? Face or eyes?

First the face then the eyes and finally the lips, definitely in that order.

Do you collect make-up or just buy what you need when you need it?

I do have a tendency of collecting make up but it’s mostly things that actually use. I rarely splurge on things I don’t need. I am a sensible shopper! πŸ˜‰

How often do you wear false eyelashes?

I tried false eye lashes once and it was one of my major faux pass’. I coat my lashes with dollops of mascara and avoid false eyelashes.

Do you do a full face of make-up every day?

Nah, I keep it all natural and reserve the full face make up for special occasions.

Do you wear make-up when you’re home alone or with family?

I might put a bit of eye liner and tinted lip balm, that’s about it. I like to let my skin breathe as much as possible.

How many high-end products do you have?

Well, none. I am still sticking to the high street make up brands like Revlon and Loreal but do hope to invest in the Diors and MACs some day πŸ™‚

How often do you change your handbag?

I have a bag fetish so I do own quite a few handbags and love to change them with outfits.

What time do you wake up and go to sleep?

I follow a pretty hectic routine and do not have fixed times of going to bed and waking up. I know it’s terrible for my skin and health in general, but can’t help with the kind of work I do.

Left handed or right handed?

Right handed

Β How tall are you?

I am 5′ 4″ tall πŸ™‚

How many pets do you have?

I have a two dogs called Casper(English Cocker Spaniel) and Cody(Dalmatian) and an Indian cat called Poos-poos! As me and my husband moved to a new city our pets continued staying with my husband’s parents. I miss them terribly! πŸ™

How do you blog?

I post 1-3 posts per week which are all fashion related. I have mix of personal style, fashion trend and shopping posts with an occasional tag post like this one from time to time. I still consider my blog to be a hobby and do not follow a strict routine of posting but I do strive for quality and consistency.

Do you read comments posted on blogs?

I read each and every comment on my blog and reply to them. Comments and likes on my posts keep my blog going and I am really thankful to all my readers for taking time out to read my blog πŸ™‚

How did you come up with your blog name?

I wanted my blog name to reflect me and things that I love. Since my blog is majorly about my personal style and I am quite a coffee addict,Β I thought of possible combination and finally came up with ‘Style Over Coffee’

What kind of camera do you use for your photographs?

We have a Nikon D3200 and my husband helps me with all my blog photography.

What’s your favourite colour?

If you are a regular reader of my blog you have probably noticed by now that I am a huge color freak. I love bright and vibrant colors. But I also love the basic black and whites and wear a lot of them.

That’s the end of my ‘Get To Know Me’ tag and I hope you found my answers interesting! I am not going to tag any bog as I have too many favorites and it would be unfair to just pick a few. So if you like this tag feel free to do a post on it. It’s more fun that you have realized πŸ™‚

Thanks for reading and before you leave don’t forget to extend you support by following me in my social networking sites as well πŸ™‚

    I really enjoy your blog…(kats have great fashion sense. if you don’t believe it, I’ll send a picture of my fur that I added to human #2’s work uniform. gray fur looks pawsome on black pants)…..I may borrow your idea of a “get to know me” tag. Everybody needs to know the kat (especially me). Shrimp
