Hey there! Since I relaunched my blog, I haven’t taken the time to re-introduce myself to you all! My name is Genevieve and this is my creative space. I started Blue Augustine about three years ago, but back then, I was still in college and unsure about what I wanted to talk about in my blog. Something things never changed though; my love for Fashion, Beauty, Makeup, Travel and Photography have been constant.
1. What is your favorite color?
My favorite color is blue. I’m also a sucker for teal.
4. Cats or Dogs?
Dogs, I love dogs. I do like cats, but I am just more of a dog person.
5. Funniest moment throughout School?
Well, I don’t have one moment that stands out, but when I was in Middle School, I started getting into make-up. At that time, I would ‘borrow’ my mom’s foundation and use that on my face. Mind you, my mom is Filipino and has olive skin. I’m half Filipino and half English/Irish and take after my dad, so I am as pale as it gets. My face was pretty orange when I looked in the mirror, but back then I thought that it was just a healthy glow. Ha! Thinking back on it now, I wish I could go back and tell myself not to go through that Oompa-Loompa phase.
6. What is your Favorite drink?
That’s hard to say. I’m not a big alcohol fan, although I do enjoy Riesling Wine. My favorite non-alcoholic drink is French Lavendar Lemonade.
7. What is your favorite animal?
I love wolves, but Lions are really cool too!
8. What is your favorite perfume?
Coco Chanel Mademoiselle.
9. Favorite Makeup Brand?
Right now, it’s a toss-up between Tarte and Nars.
10. What Sports do you play/Have you played?
I ran track in middle school and high school until I got injured.
11. What is your favorite book?
The Great Gatsby
I have been following Anna Akana, Claire Marshall and Nicol Concilio since they started on Youtube. I absolutely love them!
13. What is your favorite movie?
Moonstruck, starring Cher and Nicholas Cage, is my favorite movie of all time. Some Like It Hot is a close second.
A nice dinner (nothing fancy), followed by ice cream, a walk in the park, and a genuine conversation.
15. Favorite memory from childhood?
Dancing around the house with my sister just being silly.
16. Do you speak any different languages and how well?
I wish I did. My mom speaks Visayan, Tagalog and English, but she wasn’t sure which Filipino language to teach me so she just taught me English. I took a lot of French too, so I can understand basics, but all I can speak is English.
17. Do you have any siblings?
I have one younger sister.
18. How would you describe your fashion sense?
When it comes to fashion, I really like a lot of things. I’d like to think I my fashion sense is unique. I love neutral colors, metallics, but will wear pastels and other colors. I love flowy dresses that still cling to my body in just the right way. But I also don’t dress up all the time. When I am home, I wear lounge clothes. As far as seasons for fashion goes, I really love the Fall and Spring seasons because the weather really allows me to dress to my full potential.
19. What is your favorite restaurant?
Pho Real in Charlotte, NC – University Area
Friends! Ally McBeal! (But I also love watching crime shows like, CSI, Law and Order SVU, Criminal Minds, NCIS.)
21. PC or mac?
23. Tell us one of your bad habits!
I used to be really bad about washing my face at night when I was tired or feeling lazy, but I purchased Banila Co.’s Clean It Zero deep makeup cleanser and it’s been so much fun to clean my face now. I never forget to remove my makeup!
Let me know if there are other questions you want me to answer!
