Makeup and Beauty Blog Monday Poll, Dec. 20

Published in: Just For Fun

  • You might be wondering, “So what the heck is this Monday Poll thing anyway?”
    Well, it isn’t much of a poll. It’s more just a constantly evolving (devolving?), somewhat random list of questions I’ve been putting out to readers every Monday morning for the past three years, which I guess makes this somewhere around Vol. 150. I’ve always enjoyed reading your answers in the comments, and I hope you enjoy reading mine.
  1. Mood:
  2. Feeling positively great because I’m finally done with Christmas shopping. All that’s left to do is wrap, which I can get done in the blink of an eye (I honed my skills as a gift wrap girl at Emporium-Capwell when I was a teenager).

  3. What’s your favorite winter comfort food?
  4. Soup. It’s warm, easy and filling. Lately split pea’s been my jam, with butternut squash a close second.

  5. One small thing that always makes you happy?
  6. When Tabs crawls onto my chest first thing in the morning, tucks his head beneath my chin and fires up his purr machine. I call it “The Tabby Alarm Clock.”

  7. Three beauty products that changed your life?
  8. Philosophy Purity Made Simple One-Step Facial Cleanser because it thoroughly takes everything off without stripping my skin; Clarins HydraQuench Cream because it moisturizes my hella dry face; and the Shu Uemura Lash Curler because it creates perfectly curled lashes without pinching.

  9. Khaki cargo pants: fashionable or faux pas?
  10. Hmm. I’m not crazy about how they look, but I’ll wear them when I’m traveling or covering an event. Having accessible extra pockets comes in REALLY handy.

  11. Favorite lip balm?
  12. MAC Naked Honey Skin Salve. I’m gonna cry some serious tears when I run out of the stuff!

  13. How do you sign off on your emails?
  14. I generally rotate between kind regards, best, warmly, take care and talk to you soon. Really close friends and family get the crazy sign offs — peace and chicken grease, word to Big Bird, haaay…

  15. Your purse: messy or organized?
  16. Depends on the purse. My big “photography purse” (a Kipling bag I’ve modified to store my camera equipment) and wristlet (where I keep keys, cards and all the important stuff) are immaculate. Everything else is another story, LOL!

  17. Today’s outfit?
  18. Right now I’m looking quite un-stylish, but festive, in a white pair of sweatpants, a red sweatshirt with a faux fur hood and a pair of beige knitted, knee-high boots.

  19. Weekly goals:
  20. Enjoy every minute of the run up to Christmas, spend at least 30 minutes every day on the treadmill (damn those macarons!) and be in bed by 10 every night.

Five more days till Christmas, merry makers! Will you be taking any time off this week? Since I work for Tabs full time, I’ll be lucky to get one day off, LOL! If you’re on break this week (or if things are slow at work), how about stopping by for a second to fill out the Monday poll? I’d love to hear from ya. :)

    2. What’s your favorite winter comfort food? Soup! I rotate between fish soup, chicken noodle ( <3 Panera's), broccoli & cheddar, and goathead soup (a Caribbean soup)

    3. One small thing that always makes you happy? My iPod. I can't live without music in my life and I always carry my iPod and like two pairs of headphones with me. I'm super excited becuz I just installed a iPod connector into my car and now I'll probably never listen to another radio commercial again :-)

    4. Three beauty products that changed your life? Oh man…One N Only Argan Oil has helped tame the frizz and made my kinky curly Afro puff I call my hair soft and smooth especially when I flat iron it. The InStyler works the heck outta my ends when I flat iron my hair which is great. And I can't think of a third one…

    5. Khaki cargo pants: fashionable or faux pas? Ehh I don't have a pair…but I guess as you said they would be handy with the pockets. I'm a sucker for pockets…especially on dresses.

    6. Favorite lip balm? My Palmers Swivel Stick….thing is huge and looks like a jumbo size glue stick. It cost me less than $5 and I'm probably never going to run out.

    7. How do you sign off on your emails? Depends…less personal people will get Sincerely or Always, while family will get Loves, Love, Laterz, love peace and hair grease or just my name.

    8. Your purse: messy or organized? Uhhh right now it's semi-organized. I need a bigger purse. My cosmetics case, sunglasses case and wallet are dominating the space.

    9. Today’s outfit? Haven't decided yet but I'm pretty sure it's going to include my boots and a sweater for this cold front Florida is having.

    10. Weekly goals – Clean & Organize my room, finish my Christmas shopping, do the etchings for outside family & friends and try to ship them off.

    This is my first time commenting but I've been reading your blog for a few days now (or maybe a week – I don't keep track of the days well lol) but I love your writing style and how informative you are and how fun you keep every post. Keep up the AWESOME work and have a happy (and safe!) holiday!!!

    1. Mood: meh, it’s Monday. The good news is that it’s a short week! Hooray!

    4. Three beauty products that changed your life? Proactiv, Benefit High Beam, Hope in a Jar

    5. Khaki cargo pants: fashionable or faux pas? I can’t wear them because my hips don’t need anymore attention, but they’re fine.

    6. Favorite lip balm? Dr. Smith’s Rosebud Salve…thank goodness they put it in a tube.

    7. How do you sign off on your emails? “Best”

    10. Weekly goals: Finish Christmas shopping (just two more to go), get some rest, eat my weight in my dad’s peanut butter fudge.

  5. Liz! says:

    1. Mood: Pretty darn good. The semester is over and I finally finished my Christmas shopping this weekend!

    2. What’s your favorite winter comfort food? Soup and tea. There is this tuscan white bean soup I found that I can’t get enough of lately, and I have a couple cups of tea a day :)

    3. One small thing that always makes you happy? I have a lot of little happies in my life, but lately I’m loving snuggles from the dog.

    4. Three beauty products that changed your life? I feel like in my early makeup years, figuring out eyelash curlers, how to apply blush and using a straightening iron really changed my life lol.

    5. Khaki cargo pants: fashionable or faux pas? faux pas. I feel like they’re pretty dated, and not very flattering on people other than Jennifer Aniston in the late 90s/early 00s lol

    6. Favorite lip balm? For an spf I really like “Favorite Lip Balm” by the Gap, they have so many yummy flavors, are moisturizing and stay put on my lips for quite a while. For a night time one (or one without spf) I like Smith’s Rosebud Salve, and also Bath&Bodyworks has a Lemon lip treatment that’s really yummy, I think it’s from the C.O. Bigelow’s line but I’m not sure off the top of my head.

    7. How do you sign off on your emails? Well since I don’t have a professional e-mail anymore I don’t do a signature, I just end it with something like “Thanks” or “Love” or whatever is appropriate depending upon who I’m e-mailing.

    8. Your purse: messy or organized? Ugh, despite the fact that I love organizing it, my purse tends to get messy really fast! I just seem to collect random stuff in it. But I do keep my products within my purse pretty organized in little zippered beauty bags or whatever.

    9. Today’s outfit? Grey sweats and a black sweatshirt. Pretty stylin!

    10. Weekly goals: Start reading my prep books for the standardized tests I have to take next semester and enjoy Christmas!!!

    8. Your purse: messy or organized? Messy. Everything falls to the bottom and I can never find anything. Plus, I am a compulsive shredder, so I never throw out any receipts until I can put them through the shredder. Guess where they live until then?

    10. Weekly goals: Wrap gifts, clean out the various small piles of papers throughout my house, and try this new threading place that just opened up on the island called “The Threading Lounge.” I also want to go through my books again and find more to donate. Make room for the new Kindle!

    You should try Kiss my Face lipbalms – They’re fabulous. I’ve tried two in a row so far (Strawberry-Lemon and Pina Colada), which says alot because I usually change my lipbalms every time. Pina Colada smells amazing, but you can smell the beeswax in the so I didn’t like the smell as much, though the latter is just perfect. (: I love pretty everything I’ve tried by this brand, so I recommend it as a whole too. (: P.S. I’d do the tag but it’s 2 AM, so even though I don’t have school tomorrow it would be nice to not have raccoon eyes for once, lol.

  50. Diane says:

    2. What’s your favorite winter comfort food? Soups.

    3. One small thing that always makes you happy? My dog. He’s one of the best additions tp my life. And, he’s small.

    4. Three beauty products that changed your life? Natural hand-made soaps have completely changed my skin. Cherry Chapstick brand lip balm, because I’m an addict. Makeup primers save me time in retouching, and I appreciate that.

    5. Khaki cargo pants: fashionable or faux pas? They can be cute on the right person. I personally don’t wear them as they draw attention to my legs, which I don’t love.

    6. Favorite lip balm? Classic Cherry Chapstick brand lip balm (as mentioned above.)

    7. How do you sign off on your emails? Hugs and kisses, Courtney. Even at work. Just kidding.

    8. Your purse: messy or organized? It’s got a lot of pockets so I can’t help but be organized. The longer I use a purse, the less organized it gets.

    9. Today’s outfit? Tres Chic black pinstripe pants with a super-soft black turtleneck sweater. I’m trying to stay warm in Minnesota but still looking professional.
