Makeup and Beauty Blog Monday Poll, Aug. 30

Published in: Just For Fun

  1. Mood:
  2. Oddly alert for having gotten up at the butt crack of dawn. I set the alarm for 6:15, but a weird dream (see below) pulled me awake at 4:57.

  3. The last dream you remember having?
  4. It was last weekend. I dreamt I was back in high school, and Paul Walker was my boyfriend, which is strange because, while cute, he’s not really my style (I like ‘em nerdy). In the dream he was a real gentleman, too, walking me to class and carrying my books. We even shared lockers, ha ha!

  5. Ankle boots — yay or nay?
  6. It took me a while to get on board, but now I say YAY!

  7. A skincare product you’ve been wanting to try?
  8. Two things from Chanel, both for sensitive, dry skin: Mousse Confort Rinse-Off Rinse-Off Rich Foaming Cream Cleanser ($45) and Hydramax + Active Moisture Mask ($50)

  9. Do you have a twin?
  10. I don’t, but I always thought it would be really cool to have one.

  11. What do you like most about your best friend?
  12. Her sense of humor. No one makes me laugh like she can!

  13. How long does it take you to get ready in the morning?
  14. Anywhere between 30 minutes and an hour, depending on how much time I have and how adventurous I feel with my clothes, hair and makeup.

  15. Last time you changed your hair?
  16. July. I went lighter with my highlights.

  17. Have you ever lied about your age?
  18. No, but I’m tempted to start! :)

  19. Weekly goals:
  20. You know how I watched Gattaca last weekend, right? Well, it was great food for thought (NOTE: Highly recommended! Beautifully filmed with a provocative story, particularly if you like traditional sci-fi (Ray Bradbury, Isaac Asimov, Orson Scott Card). Plus — HELLO! — Ethan Hawke in a tailored suit = super hawt!). A theme in the movie has to do with pushing through perceived boundaries, and that’s what I’d like to work on this week, ya know, just putting everything on the table and seeing what happens.

What up, cutie? How’s it going on this lovely Monday? I hope you’re well. I’m actually doing…alright, considering I’ve been awake since 4:57. I may need a nap later this afternoon.

But not for a while. Right now I’m rearing to go!

Do you have a minute to say hi by filling out the Monday Poll?

    Did you watch TB? :D

    • Karen says:

      I did! What did you think?

      I liked it, but I feel like the writers are doing some things that seem way out of character for Sam and Jesus.

      • Nina says:

        It was better than the one before it. Youre right about the out of character stuff … I mean with Jesus, the very name implies goodness and light; and Sam has always been pretty steady.

        I actually like Russell and the way his role is acted; and of course, Eric = hawt! :D

    • Karen says:

      No, but I’ve been meaning to (it’s on my “to watch” list).

      Did you see last night’s TB? What did you think?

      • Lexi says:

        of course I did :)
        freaky – I’m curious to see how this Jesus thing turns out. All of a sudden there are all of these things that will need some type of resolution in one episode.

      • Steph B says:

        Wait, what??? You didn’t watch Gilmore Girls? You seriously need to fix that. My favorite tv show ever.

    2. The last dream you remember having? The other night I had a dream that someone was trying to break into my house and “get” me. My house was totally modern with all these windows though, not like it is now. Anyway Mr. VV had a friend named “Juan” who was some expert in protecting people so he did a perimeter check and secured the house for me. So random and bizarre! I think “Juan” was really Ranger from Janet Evanovich’s Stephanie Plum series that I have been reading. :)

      Ha ha, I’ve actually forgotten about my age once or twice too. I had to actually calculate it using my birth year… lame, I know.

      My mom did Jenny Craig years ago and lost a lot of weight. Seems like it works for a lot of people!

  14. Lucia says:

    1. Mood: Ok, a little cranky because of my allergies and the heat today.

    2. The last dream you remember having?
    I can’t remember what it was about, but it must have been intense because I was crying in the dream and woke up sobbing.

    9. Have you ever lied about your age?
    Lots of times – like when I was 18-19 and had a fake ID! The goal wasn’t to booze so much as it was just to get into where my friends were getting into since they were all 3-5 years older than me.

    10. Weekly goals:
    Well, do homework. It’s husband’s birthday on Sunday, so I need to figure out something interesting to do. Or I could just buy a pound of bacon and let him have at it! Side note – I don’t eat any oprk products, so this would be an interesting shopping trip.

    • Karen says:

      LOL… I bet he would LOVE a pound of bacon. Or maybe some sort of dried, salted meat? I got El Hub some been jerky one year for Christmas and it made him beyond happy.

    2. The last dream you remember having? I remembered every dream I had last night. And there were many. One of the last had Bobby Brown starring in a “funny” viral video. Another had me floating down a not-real river that’s often in my dreams. Another had me using a fountain pen. Another had me running from a huge mechanical monster inside the Mall of America.

    Happy Monday Ladies!

    Cranky. Second week of school and I’m draaaaaaaaained.

    2. The last dream you remember having?
    I was 5’10″ and everyone was 2′ tall. It was really bizarre. I would kill to be that tall, but not if everyone is that short!

    3. Ankle boots — yay or nay?
    Depends on the outfit and the person. They’re sort of a nay for me as that would mean trying to find a pair that weren’t huge in the ankles. I have UBER tiny ankles for someone who wears an 8-8 1/2 shoe.

    4. A skincare product you’ve been wanting to try?
    Um, nothing at the moment. I just got my face cleared up from the last time I tried swithcing skin care products. NOT PRETTY.

    6. What do you like most about your best friend?
    She has unconditional love and can’t make fun of me because she can’t talk.

    8. Last time you changed your hair?
    As in cut? Last year. I decided to grow the layers out.

    9. Have you ever lied about your age?
    : snorts : No. People don’t believe me when I say I’m 21 and not 15/16. I apparently look 6 years younger than I actually am. I HATE it.

    10. Weekly goals:
    Go see the neurologist (yippee…)
    Do my tennis ball exercise twice a day
    Stay on top of my homework, especially math homework. I’m horrible at math.

  31. Kim says:

    1. Mood: Pretty good since it’s almost the end of the work day (but honestly, a little bloated).
    2. The last dream you remember having? That I was driving around the nearest “city” with my dad and his friend. We were going from bar to bar (and finding hidden back streets with beautiful houses – that’s a recurring theme for me) to ask them to donate their empties to a bottle drive. In real life, I spent all Sat AM with my family volunteering for a bottle drive for my kids’ hockey club, which is what inspired this. I remember all my dreams.. this one was last night.
    3. Ankle boots — yay or nay? Nay, but not with any real conviction. Should be “meh”.
    4. A skincare product you’ve been wanting to try? Hope in a Jar (so many people rave).
    5. Do you have a twin? I have twin sons… does that count?
    6. What do you like most about your best friend? I’m lucky enough to have a group of best friends, all from grade school. We’ll all drop everything for each other if one of us is in need.

    8. Last time you changed your hair? I’ve been growing it out since the winter and I did get highlights in the spring.

    10. Weekly goals: Focus on eating better (and less!); get my Mite soccer team to SPREAD OUT, darn it!!! :)

  32. Shannon says:

    1. Mood:
    ca-RAAAZY! I can’t even believe how allovertheplace I’ve been today. First day of school ftw!
    2. The last dream you remember having?
    it was last night – some really weird dream tha involved sliding endlessly down this curved slope.. in a white building… it was just a spiral downward on this really smooth, polished floor. There were other important details, too, but I don’t remember them at all.
    3. Ankle boots — yay or nay?
    Heeeeeell yeah! I’m wearing some at the moment :) hehe.
    4. A skincare product you’ve been wanting to try?
    the Boots Organics facial scrub. I’m using sugar at the moment (cuz I am oh-so-cheap) but am thinking about trying that stuff out.
    5. Do you have a twin?
    No. But my sister and I are “Irish twins” – i.e., we were born in the same year. Until we were in like Junior High/High School, people totally thought we were twins.
    6. What do you like most about your best friend?
    I have more than one. And I like different things about all of them. I think a unifying factor is that they’re all pretty darn smart people (in totally different ways, but still).
    7. How long does it take you to get ready in the morning?
    hm. Well. that depends. If I shower the night before, like… 20-30 minutes. If I shower in the morning, it takes about an hour or a little over.
    8. Last time you changed your hair?
    last summer, when i went from super long to super short pixi cut. it’s basically been growing out since then (with strategic trimmings), but I’m tempted to change it up and cut myself some bangs.
    9. Have you ever lied about your age?
    Not intentionally. I think I’ve accidentally told someone that I was younger than I was because I forgot I’d had a birthday.
    10. Weekly goals:
    To stay relaxed and happy in this first week of classes! And to make dinner at least once instead of foisting all the cooking on my poor hubby.

  37. Jellytea says:

    1. Mood: Apprehensive. My mom is in the hospital and I am trying not to worry.

    2. The last dream you remember having? This morning. This 16 year old girl (whom I’ve never met,) was in my living room and the tv’s were bolted to the ceiling. (I think this might be a hospital reference.) She was telling me about how she thought twitter was beneath her and kinda trying to put me down for not wearing a bra while I cleaned up the house. My daughter was going behind the dresser, playing with some bad little girl. (WTF!)

    3. Ankle boots — yay or nay? Yes, way yay. But I’ve only started wearing them with skirts about a year ago. I couldn’t see it, then finally I was like, “yeah, this is cute!”

    4. A skincare product you’ve been wanting to try? Cle de Peau body cream. I have wanted this body cream for like 5 years. But I cannot bring myself to buy it at 150.00! Plus, Ima big girl, that’s a whole lot of skin to cover with a little amount of creamness! I’m afraid I’ll become addicted and have a product like a new car payment each month. Oh yeah and a professional Chemical Peel. No one but me can see the age old acne scars, but to have no pores or spots, would be heavenly!

    5. Do you have a twin? I have a twin cousin. We look more like sisters than my sister. We even sound the same

    6. What do you like most about your best friend? She loves me, weirdness and all!

    9. Have you ever lied about your age? No, but people lie for me all the time! They say, NOOO, you aren’t! You are (insert age here.) I just say ok. I figure, I didn’t answer, they gave me an age, I’m ok with that.

    10. Weekly goals: Help my mom get healthy. Get my little one back to a regular sleep schedule.

  38. Julie says:

    6. What do you like most about your best friend? That he’s also my boyfriend. Sometimes I forget that he’s a guy so when I start rambling about a beauty product he just looks at me like I’ve got two heads lol. But he still listens…I think.

    7. How long does it take you to get ready in the morning? Shower, makeup, hair and getting dressed takes me less than 30 minutes most days of the week. On the weekends, I have the time to take my time so I’m a bit slower lol.

    3. Ankle boots — yay or nay?: Yay!

    4. A skincare product you’ve been wanting to try?: Nope, I’m 42 but I don’t have any wrinkles so what I’ve been doing has been working out great so far.

    5. Do you have a twin?: As a matter of fact, I am an identical twin! She is 10 minutes older than me. If any of you have any twin questions that you would like to ask, feel free!

    6. What do you like most about your best friend?: I like that she looks exactly like me!

    7. How long does it take you to get ready in the morning?: 1 hour & 15 minutes, I don’t like rushing.

    9. Have you ever lied about your age? Not that I can think of! I was never one of those girls who tried to get into bars/clubs before I was 21. And I’m not old enough to want to lie yet! ;)
