You might be wondering, “So what in tarnation is this Monday Poll thing anyway!?”
Well, it isn’t exactly a poll. It’s more of a constantly evolving (devolving?), somewhat random list of questions I’ve been putting out to readers every Monday morning for the past seven years. (It’s like a kickstart for your brain.) I’ve always enjoyed reading your answers in the comments, and I hope you enjoy reading mine.
- Describe your typical weekend makeup look.
Well, it has gotten progressively less fussy over the past few months. It used to involve some combination of brows, lashes, foundation (or tinted moisturizer), concealer, blush AND gloss, but I’ve been keeping it simpler lately.
Like, last Sunday morning El Hub and I ran out to grab a croissant and coffee from our favorite bakery, and I just wore a little tinted balm — that’s it — and even that was only because my lips were hella dry.
I still like getting gussied up and wearing more complicated weekend makeup sometimes, but lately, not so much. I’ve been more into going bare faced.
- Have you ever trimmed your nose hair (be honest!)?
LOL! Yeah. Totally. Just my left nostril though. The hairs on the right aren’t as jungly.
- Mascara primer: totally necessary or totally overrated?
Totally necessary, but if and only if we’re talking about Estee Lauder’s Little Black Primer.
GURL, one time and you’ll be hooked. It’ll take your favorite mascara to the next level.
- Gladiator shoes or espadrilles? (P.S. “Neither” is not an option. You have to choose one.)
Bah! No to the espadrilles, because I had a pair once that totally hurt my feet, so gladiator shoes it is (ideally in a nude shade)! — even though I’ll probably end up with a weird tan on my legs.
- 5 random things you’re loving right now?
- Hearing the sound of baby birds chirping outside (there’s a nest in the hanging plant off my deck!)
- Watermelon (been eating a TON of it lately)
- Charli XCX’s Sucker album (good running music)
- These Denco Stainless Steel Nail Clippers. (They have a plastic catcher to catch the nail clippings so they don’t just fly all over the place! Why I derive so much joy from this, I have no idea.)
- My Roxy leopard-print slip-ons
Your turn. Just copy and paste the following questions into a comment with your answers. I look forward to reading ’em!

Top o’ the morning to you, kitty cat! My mind’s kind of going in 10 million directions today, but it’s all good. Once the tea kicks in, all will be right with the world.
How are you doin’? Do you have a minute to touch base in today’s Monday Poll? It’s a time-tested, highly effective way to get into your mental groove.
