After a series of beauty product related posts over the last few weeks I wanted to do something a little different. Actually, a lot different since I don’t often talk about my husband on this blog. So, in order to bring him in a little I decided to do something along the lines of the husband tag/interview. The questions I decided on were a mix from a google search and this post by Katie at KatieElizabeth.com.
When I asked my husband if he would be willing to do a little interview for the blog he said he would gladly be my celebrity guest. Cue eye roll haha. Little did he know that the questions weren’t about him at all 😉
The answers below are exactly what he responded with minimal editing (some of his responses were in Spanish so obviously I had to translate). My commentary is in parenthesis. So, without further a-do, my husband Fernando.
Me: What do I typically blog about?
Fernando: Favorites, product reviews & weekend recaps
Me: Why did I start blogging?
Fernando: As a way to share your passions for beauty products with the world
(wow, with the world huh?)
Me: What’s a popular fashion item for women right now?
Fernando: (Silence) Like make up wise? The eye brow shit…the… eye brow comb.
(At this point I explained that fashion usually refers to something you wear… NOT an eye brow comb. Regardless, I don’t think this is a particularly popular time for eye brow combs)
Fernando: Like a dress? Ok, I guess big dresses at award shows. Look at Rihanna! she looked like a piñata in the VMA’s.
Me: What’s the best place to shop for women?
Fernando: Sephora, never seen a sad woman inside Sephora
Me: How about for clothing?
Fernando: The department store? The Porch?
(Mind you The Porch is a restaurant in Dallas)
Me: What is my favorite beauty product?
Fernando: The turnip
Me: Explain what the turnip is for readers.
Fernando: The spongy thing that you use to put on creams.
(He means my Beauty Blender. I’m glad he thinks I use it to put on “creams” plural)
Me: What’s a Hunter wellie?
Fernando: A hunter wellie? (Silence…then repeats the question to himself) What is a wellie? Is it an eyeliner?
Me: What is contouring?
Fernando: Oh..oh..oh..oh…I know this! (Excited wave of hands) “It’s giving your face a certain shape with blushes”
(Umm, he thinks I can give my face a new shape with blush?)
Me: What do you and I like to do together?
(There was no hesitation with this response. But since he saw my eyes bulge that this would be the only thing he could think of, he proceeded to give a few more responses)
Watch the Walking Dead. Give weird nicknames to our dog. (uhhh, what?) And we like going out for walks while I catch Pokémon’s. We also like going out on walks and looking at houses… while I catch Pokémon’s.
Me: Am I good at staying on a budget?
Fernando: For the most part. Except when you go to Target… then you lose control.
Me: What’s the Pantone color of the year for 2016?
Fernando: I don’t know what a pantone is. I guess “Lila”.
(This is when I had to tell him “lila” is not a color. Pretty sure he meant “Lilac”)
Me: What do women keep in their purse?
Fernando: Lip-gloss or chapstick. Money or credit cards. Bubble gum. Old receipts. Some sort of cream. An earring that they lost. And a wallet.
(I don’t even know where to start with this. First off, why must we choose between lip-gloss and chapstick? And the earring that was lost? I can’t even explain)
M: What do I do when I’m home alone?
Fernando: Work. Eat popcorn. Put make up on and off.
(I need to clarify that I do not put makeup on and off when I am home alone)
Me: What’s my favorite accessory?
Fernando: The crab purse.
Me: What’s an acceptable amount to spend on a makeup item?
Fernando: $35 (silence) yeah $35 sounds right.
(I’ve trained him well ladies)
Me: What makeup product do I wear everyday?
Fernando: You don’t wear make up every day. But when you do, foundation and eye shadows
(Totally wrong but at least he came up with actual makeup items. I usually wear eye brow gel every day)
Me: What’s my favorite TV show?
Fernando: Jane the Virgin cause I’ve never heard you laugh so hard.
(Love that show, but not favorite. My all-time favorite is probably Homeland, or The Tudors)
Me: What is a Foreo Luna?
Fernando: Say again…. It has nothing to do with makeup because I’ve never heard you say those words before. So my guess is brand of accessories like necklaces and earrings.
Me: In what order do you apply makeup?
Fernando: Wash your face, foundation, then you put the eye shadow? No wait, then eye stuff, mascara, and then you put blushes and the contouring. Then fake lashes and lipstick.
(It all started so good with wash your face)
That’s my husband for you! Have a great day!
