I'm Back

With a vengeance! Francine just tagged me. This girl wanted to know how vain I am and contrary to what I thought I am, I still have a shy of vanity on my bones. I thought I was close to negative. Well.

You Are 19% Vain

You don't have a vain bone in your body - almost as a matter of principal.
You demand to be judged on who you are, not what you look like.

Francine, summarizing that supposed-to-be 19% of vanity gave me a real hard time. Here's my list:

1. I have 4 different shades of eye shadows that I rarely use.
2. I have 3 eyeliners which I used once. They're now collecting dusts on my dresser.
3. I use mascara everyday since probably a year now. Not that I'd like to have that Betty Boop look. Wala lang.
4. I normally wear shirts and jeans. The very rare time that I wear skirts and high-heeled shoes at work, I have all the eyes focused on me, men and women alike - ready to blame me if it rains!
5. But honestly, I love to see myself dressed with a lot of taste and feminity. Ang hirap lang i-assume hehe. It's just not me.
6. I just had what it feels like a one-year-shopping-spree with my recent trips to the US and Asia. Not that I'm vain, mas mura kasi dun hehe.
7. I normally wear those clothes being displayed on shop windows. Not because they're the latest trend, it's simply because I hate shopping and the easiest way to finish shopping is to ask the saleslady if they have my size.
8. I was driving an old pawis-steering car before we changed to our car now. And honestly, who cares.
9. Ok, this is vain. I sometimes buy trendy clothes for me and Louna but I make sure I don't pay that much. There's being vain and being practical at the same time, right?
10. I hate to see my bulgy tummy so I do belly exercises, like once a month hehe. Sorry, you have business with a lazy gurl here. And me thinks being vain and lazy at the same time are simply not compatible.

Oh by the way, I'd like to know your honest opinion. Do I look/sound vain? I find that 19% vain description of me so cute hehe.

Updates coming next..

ANA, thanks for replying my tag.its really great to get to know you thru this tag. you are vain but in a normal way which i find cute ;-)

Analyse said...

Francine, thanks for tagging me ;). Now I know that vanity is a golden rule. Everybody has it, it just depends at which level.. if i tell that im 19% vain to those who know me personally, they might have the shock of their life too hehe...

Francesca said...

19%vain si ana is correct.
81%humble to complete 100%
pero pag dating ke Louna, aba eh, all pride and glory na yan.
Sino ba hindi!
like you ana, di rin ako gano nag memek ap.
Gastos lang yun. Simple is best!

aba, once a year lang ako kung nag paparlor, sa Pinas pa, kung uuwi, haha

JO said...

hi analyse,

i got the same result as you did.

Makis said...

Mon Dieu, you are not at all vain, Ana. And I totally agree with you on being vain & being lazy to be beautiful doesn't go together - I have a belly I'm too lazy to lose :) Buti ka pa nga you get to choose on shop windows, when I like one shirt, I buy like 3 colors!

haze said...

Now here's my resul, I am 27% Vain !

Accdg to them "Okay, so you're slightly vain from time to time, but you're not superficial at all.
You are realistic. You know that looks matter. You just try to make them matter less."

I go for natural beauty! The simplier the better di ba !

gracita said...

coming from a person who is 74% vain, for me you are not vain at all!

parang bigla naman akong nanliit, gosh, ganun pala ako kaarte. lahat ng tao have lower scores than i did. pero i answered the quiz honestly, so eto talaga ako. hindi naman ako mahilig sa makeup but i like creams, lotions, perfumes, etc. and i LOVE clothes, so siguro kahit na anong defend ko sa sarili ko, maarte nga talaga ako, hehe.

SexyMom said...

19% i guess is very low (maybe about 40%% would be more suitable, but of course, i am not a specialist on that). though for practicality i can give you a score of 80%.

i wonder what my score will be!

analyse said...

Francesca, in fact, I even had no time to pamper myself in the Philippines.. next time, I'll put that on my priority list hehe.

Jo, magkakasundo pala tayo ;)

Makis, you're not alone.. I forgot to mention that when I like the style and it fits me well, I buy different colors din hehe..

Haze, o di ba, mas vain ka sa kin hehehe..

Gracita, so you've bag the first place for being vain? galeng! well, i do use creams and lotions din naman, but just because I need them. air here is very dry. in the phils, i dont use any talaga. and the perfumes! i could finish a 30ml perfume for like 2-3 years siguro.. panis na hahaha.. and by the way, i dont consider vanidosa as maarte.. masipag lang, ako kasi tamad e hehe..

Sexy Mom, it would be interesting to know your score ;)

and by the way, the 19% score doesnt mean i'm losyang ha (defensive ba?).

Hey, I recently added a news widget from www.widgetmate.com to my blog. It shows the latest news, and just took a copy and paste to implement. Might interest you too.

pareho tayo. I rarely wear make up. I want to sometimes but it's too time consuming & I find it hassle, then with itchy eyes due to hayfever, I can't even wear eye make up hehe

mitsuru said...

hey, good to see you're back.
how's the old country? :)

Heart of Rachel said...

I'm glad to see you back. I don't care much about make-up but I have a kit filled with stuff from family and friends that I rarely use. Same here, I'm also a jeans and shirt kind of girl. I love comfortable clothes.

Enjoy the rest of the weekend!
