Makeup and Beauty Blog Monday Poll, Dec. 13

Published in: Just For Fun

  1. Mood:
  2. I was a little agitated earlier (the Christmas tree fell over this morning so there were broken ornaments and pine needles all over the living room floor, plus the carpet was soaked, ugh), but now I’m feeling pretty good. It’s amazing how a quick run and some endorphins can change everything.

  3. Three winter beauty essentials you can’t live without?
  4. Clarins HydraQuench Cream for my hella dry face, Burt’s Bees Coconut Foot Creme for my gnarly feet and Burt’s Bees Lemon Butter Cuticle Cream for my shredded carrot cuticles, LOL!

  5. Red lips: matte or glossy?
  6. Both. :)

  7. One of your life goals?
  8. To visit the pyramids in Egypt.

  9. When it comes to holiday entertaining, would you rather be the host or the guest?
  10. The guest, for sure.

  11. If you were a dessert, what would you be?
  12. A mini cupcake, because it’s small and sweet.

  13. Have you finished your holiday shopping?
  14. No, and I still have a long way to go. :(

  15. Your favorite meal of the day?
  16. Hmm, probably breakfast. French toast, banana pancakes, hash browns, omelettes… man, I’m hungry right now.

  17. What sounds do you hear right at this very moment?
  18. Cars driving by in the distance, my fingers typing on the keyboard and Tabs purring up a storm (he’s making biscuits on my lap).

  19. Weekly goals:
  20. Drink three big bottles of water every day (been dehydrated lately), log in 10 hours of reading and eat plenty of veggies at dinner every night.

There’s nothing like a portly tabby cat sitting on your lap and tearing the crap out of your clothes to start your week off right, LOL! Other than this morning’s Christmas Tree Incident (I still don’t know how it fell over), things have been just dandy on this end.

      The weird thing is I don’t even remember hearing it fall over! It’s like it just suddenly ended up on the floor!

      How’s the thesis going? Are you anywhere near done?

      • Tiffany says:

        Oops sorry for my double post – I’m on my iPhone!

        I wonder if the tree incident was tabs related?

        I am really hoping to finish by Feb. I finally have my data, which is what held me up for over a year :(

        • Karen says:

          No worries! I can barely type on my iPhone so I’m sorta amazed you can fill out the entire poll so easily.

          I was thinking that Tabs could be the culprit because he likes to hide beneath the branches (I think it reminds him of his time as an outdoor kitty). I must’ve been REALLY out of it this morning if I didn’t hear it crashing down…

          Okay, when you’re done in Feb we’ll have to celebrate with a mini “congrats you’re DONE!!” party. I’ll bring the cupcakes. :D

          • Tiffany says:

    I hate to burst your kitteh-lovin’ bubble of denial, but I feel with GREAT CERTAINTY that Tabs was the guilty party with the tree cat-tastrophe, lol. Something about the piney smell gets my cats so worked up that we ended up going with a fake tree. During our 1st Christmas together (both were tiny kittens), I heard an ornament smash and went in to check things out. There was no guilty cat anywhere in sight. Mystified, I was sweeping up the shards when another ornament came down, out of nowhere. I looked up and right there near the top of the 8-foot tree was a fuzzy black face peeking out from the branches. It was a semi-epic struggle to extricate her from deep inside the scratchy branches. We ended up using clear fishing line (tied around 2 tiny nails in the wall, one on either side of the tree) to keep them from knocking it over, which actually worked really well.

    1. Mood: Not too bad since I went to the gym this afternoon. I’ve been pretty ick lately due to a family emergency and lack of sleep for the last week.
    2. Three winter beauty essentials you can’t live without? Lip balm of some sort (liking Korres Lip Balm at the moment), MAC Moisturelush Cream and Mustela Cold Cream for really cold days.
    3. Red lips: matte or glossy? I love the look of glossy, but my liplines make it too hard to maintain. So I’ll wear it matte, without lipgloss or sheer lipgloss. Lipstick and lipgloss worn together is not an option for me.
    4. One of your life goals? Stay in good health! My family is rampant with diabetes, heart disease and high blood pressure. One of my cousins has juvenile arthritis, another has type 2 diabetes (& had cataract surgery as a result) and another had high blood pressure AND gestational diabetes while she was pregnant. Btw, all 3 of those are under 35! So some co-related goals are to run a 10 minute mile without stopping, eat clean (with occasional treats ;), and reduce my body fat by 5%.
    5. When it comes to holiday entertaining, would you rather be the host or the guest? I prefer being a guest, although I don’t mind hosting. I love cooking delicious healthy meals.

    Does Tabs have an alibi at the time of the “tree incident”?

    • Karen says:

      No, he can’t seem to account for his whereabouts at that time! LOL… he is UNUSUALLY obsessed with this tree, I have to say. We’ve had trees in the past and he’s mostly left them alone, but he’s really into this one. He spends a lot of time hiding under it and drinking the water from the stand.

  32. Saffron says:

    1. Mood: frenetic! I have a huge project due this friday and most but not all of the pieces are in place. Sadly, the last few pieces are essential and tricky bastards, it’s gonna be a lot of late nights this week.
    2. Three winter beauty essentials you can’t live without? This is gross, but Vaseline keeps my poor nose from being one giant blister after my colds and allergies do their dirty business. If someone knows of a good hippy alternative that doesn’t smell (I gotta wear it all day on my nose!) I’d love to hear about it. Also: invertible spraybottle full of neutrogena sesame oil lets my moisturize everywhere without sustaining a shoulder injury.
    3. Red lips: matte or glossy? I like glossy, but I have carrot red hair and look bad in red lipstick. I got this one, Laura Mercier’s “Mistress” cause of Joan on Mad Men who is said to wear it (we have the same coloring and build, tho somehow I like like a redheaded lumberjack with a big rack and she looks hella cute.) anyways the name of the lipstick is so absurd the sales folks at Nordstrom made fun of me when I bought it, but it doesn’t look half bad on redheads. Nonetheless I like to go purple for drama.
    4. One of your life goals? get over thinking of myself as damaged goods. freals.
    5. When it comes to holiday entertaining, would you rather be the host or the guest? 3 cats + 500 square foot apartment means I get to be the guest!
    6. If you were a dessert, what would you be? lol oh *this* sort of question. I’m sure more than one friend would say, “A tart.”.
    7. Have you finished your holiday shopping? I finished in october, that mild shopping addiction has its benefits.
    8. Your favorite meal of the day? breakfast pile o’ protein really gets me going.
    9. What sounds do you hear right at this very moment? office noise, can’t wait til everyone leaves and I can focus again. ><

    (I know it’s not Monday, but I could only get to filling out the poll today)

    Mood: Uhm… moody. I mean, my mood’s been swinging and changing rapidly and a lot during the week. I’ve been and am happy, hyper, depressed, sad, hurt, disappointed, angry, tired and relieved, too… in 4 days.
    Three winter beauty essentials: Labello Hydro Care chapstick (I guess they’re called Nivea in the US), mauvy lipstick (Look at me! from Essence)… and my blow-dryer, I guess.
    Red lips: well, out of these, I’d go for glossy (not on me, though, I’m clearly not a red lips type of girl), but the best is a satin or creamy finish, I guess.
    One life goal: Work in a theatre!!!
    Host or guest? Both options are fine for me, but I’d rather be a guest, I think. I mean, I would HATE running around in the last minute to see whether everything’s ready and not having enough time and peace to eat because of my duties :D.
    Holiday shopping: I’ve almost finished it. I just need to buy a flashlight for my dad, but otherwise, I’ve done all the things I planned (oh, and I need to fetch the lipstick I’ve oredered for my mum from Avon)
    Fave meal of the day: Dinner… because I can have it calmly… all my mornings and noons are pretty hectic.
    Sounds I hear right now: me typing, music tv from the background (Pink’s Raise your glass, if I wanna be more exact :D)
    Weekly goals: taking pics for my freshly started blog :D and having a rest… all the other goals I set up on Monday I’ve done ’til now (Christmas shopping, getting bargain theatre tickets-for last dates-, writing an essay for university)
