Makeup and Beauty Blog Monday Poll, Aug. 9

Published in: Just For Fun

  1. Mood:
  2. I’m still waiting for my tea to kick in, but other than heavy eyelids I’m doing just fab. :)

  3. Do you ever fall asleep on public transportation?
  4. I haven’t lately because out here in the burbs I rely on my car to get around, but I did it often when I lived in San Francisco and spent half of my time on buses and trains. Zzzz…

  5. If you could wave a magic wand and instantly change one thing about your hair this morning, what would it be?
  6. I’d “disappear” the gray roots peeking through.

  7. Fragrance?
  8. For now, just Pacifica Malibu Lemon Blossom lotion on my hands.

  9. Your favorite childhood toy?
  10. My Strawberry Shortcake roller skates. They were white with red wheels and laces, and I loved ‘em to pieces. I remember the day when I realized that they no longer fit my feet, and what a sad day it was…

  11. What’s the last thing that made you really, REALLY happy?
  12. The nap I took yesterday on the couch. MAN, it felt great! I swear, I could write sonnets about how much I love naps, ha ha!

  13. Do you wear a watch?
  14. Yes, but I’m not sure why. It’s not like it ever helps me get where I need to go on time. :)

  15. I’m loving…
  16. The salad bar at Whole Foods (aka Whole Paycheck), getting to bed early, my stretchy dark gray yoga pants, having a clean kitchen floor, and green tea.

  17. Outfit:
  18. Said stretchy gray yoga pants, a white tank top and a coral pink wrap sweater.

  19. Weekly goals:
  20. Write a list of positive affirmations every day, and post them someplace visible; read a few articles on time management; be kind whenever I critique myself; and use small treats as rewards whenever I’ve met a goal.

I usually cling to the last vestiges of every weekend, but last night I decided to just bite the bullet and look forward to Monday. To set the right tone for the week, I wrote brief lists of positive affirmations (I’m having a great day, I’m creative in my own way, I’m a good friend, etc.) on Post-It notes and put them around the house — on the mirrors, in my daily planner and on my computer screen (see above).

Speaking of kicking weeks off to good starts, do you have a minute to take the Monday Poll? If you’re new to MBB, the poll is just a quick way to touch base and to tune our mental motors.

All you do is copy the list below, and paste it with your answers in the comments. Easy, peasy. :)

    I haven’t posted a comment for so long… I was just too busy! But now I’m back! Hello Karen!
    And I totally agree with the watch thing. I mean I have a clock but it’s not like it’ll speed me up with my morning routine. Rather, it makes me nervous and slow me down!

    2. Do you ever fall asleep on public transportation?

      • Aparnaa says:

        Oh no. There are chunks of delicious jelly donut. Also strawberry preserves, vanilla custard, and cinnamon sugar. I tried to use a straw to slow myself down, but I still felt ill about 1/3 of the way through. YUM.

    1. Mood:
    Very tired. I had to wake up early to go to a meeting with the Office for Students with Disabilities. I really hate saying my quirks are “disabilities.” Makes me cringe.

    2. Do you ever fall asleep on public transportation?
    Uh, no.

    3. If you could wave a magic wand and instantly change one thing about your hair this morning, what would it be?
    For it to be less oily. My hair’s been on a super oily streak lately.

    4. Fragrance?
    None. Too allergic to them.

    5. One of your favorite childhood toys?
    It’s a tie between Barbies and Paper Dolls. I played with both equally.

    6. Last thing that made you really, REALLY happy?
    Zena, of course. She’s a goofball. She’s 99% of the time funny.

    7. Do you wear a watch?
    Yes, constantly. It’s my public security blanket. I feel very exposed without my watch.

    Dresses at the moment. It’s hot AND humid here in Chicagoland.

    9. Outfit:
    A Target dress, watch and earrings.

    10. Weekly goals:
    Brush out Zena!
    Go to the doctor for a physical and checking on this rash/bruise/whatever this thing is on my upper right arm. It itches AND hurts.
    Get sunscreen. I’m running low AGAIN.
    Get back to my exercise videos. I’ve been slacking due to the heat and humidity.

    • Karen says:

      Hmm, maybe your hair’s extra oily because of the humidity?

      A dry shampoo might help!

      • Kate & Zena says:

        I don’t know! It could be that I have a mosquito bite near the back of the crown of my head. It’s usually not this kind of oily when it’s humid. It’s truly bizarre. Just like the bruise/rash thing on my upper right arm. Both weird phenomena this summer.

      • Karen says:

        It might be because you’re getting older, too. I’ve noticed that my hair/scalp has changed throughout the years.

        Give Zena a snuggle for me. :)

      Hi Trude,

      So happy to hear about you and your BF. :) It’s an amazing thing to give and receive love!

      BTW, what’s a White Gummi Bear Jamba Juice? Do they actually put Gummi Bears in the smoothie?

      • Trude says:

        It really is! :)

        They actually make a smoothie that tastes just like a white gummi bear – its amazing! Part of the employee-created “secret” menu. If you order it at any location, they’ll know how to make it! See also: Pink Starburst. Yummmm. :D

  45. jen. says:

    1. Mood: tired. I’ve been moving and driving back and forth between my new place and old place for the past week.
    2. Do you ever fall asleep on public transportation? I haven’t taken public transportation recently (just now moving back to a place with a bus system…. though the drivers are on strike right now). If I had to, though, I’m sure I would, and that seems like a really bad idea.
    3. If you could wave a magic wand and instantly change one thing about your hair this morning, what would it be? It would magically straighten itself, as I did not have the energy to do it this morning.
    4. Fragrance? I’m wearing one of the many samples I’ve gotten from Sephora, but I have no idea what it is! I like it though.
    5. One of your favorite childhood toys? Legos. LOVED Legos. I liked to build stuff, and my brother liked to wreck it. It was one of the few things we could actually do without fighting. :)
    6. Last thing that made you really, REALLY happy? My mom surprised me and pulled all the weeds in my front yard (no small feat) while I was gone the other day.
    7. Do you wear a watch? Nope. I stopped wearing one at work because a lot of kids on the Autism spectrum are super time-oriented and it is too distracting.
    8. I’m loving… the blueberry muffins I made last night.
    9. Outfit: purple tank layered over a light yellow tank, brown pants, brown-ish purple flower print shoes.
    10. Weekly goals: something related to work… I start for real on Wednesday, but I have no clue what’s going on yet to even formulate a specific goal! This weekend, I want to get the rest of my stuff boxed up at the old place, even if I can’t move it anywhere yet.

    I’m loving the affirmations idea. I was thinking of doing something similar today when I was bored in a new teacher orientation thing. Haha. Gotta keep my mind occupied somehow.

    • Karen says:

      I think the affirmations idea totally helps. It reminds me to look at the world through fresh eyes, you now?

      Are you done moving? Get all those boxes unpacked, STAT!

      • jen. says:

        I’m not done yet. I’ve moved as much as I can in my handy dandy Corolla (during the 10 or so back and forth trips I’ve made), but all my furniture is still at my old place. It is a sad situation over here for sure. Hahaha.

  46. Denise says:

    2. Do you ever fall asleep on public transportation? Oh gosh! I did once (in a taxi…if that counts.) This happened years ago so I have obviously become a bit wiser. It was really late and I was coming back from a birthday party in the city. I told the driver where I lived and somehow I drifted off to sleepn the ride there. The next thing I know, he’s waking me up and telling me that he’s been sitting in front of my house for ten minutes waiting for me to wake up .I felt so awful!

    3. If you could wave a magic wand and instantly change one thing about your hair this morning, what would it be? That it was longer. I have shoulder length hair and have been trying to grow it out for a while, but this is the longest it has ever been (which is not very long at all!)

    10. Weekly goals: To not go crazy over and buy all the new fall make-up and or nail polish collections. Oh!
