Makeup and Beauty Blog Monday Poll, Feb. 14

Published in: Just For Fun

the makeup and beauty blog monday poll

  • 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. 157. I’ve always enjoyed reading your answers in the comments, and I hope you enjoy reading mine.
  1. Mood:
  2. A little sleepy but otherwise not too shabby, tabby.

  3. Outfit:
  4. I’m about to let Jillian Michaels hand me a beat down, so I’m dressed for impending sweaty misery: cropped heather gray yoga pants, a pink t-shirt and a brown zip-up sweatshirt (it’s cold today!).

  5. Your favorite sweet treat?
  6. Ice cream when it’s warm and cupcakes when it’s cold.

  7. One thing that always cheers you up?
  8. Pulling up to a metered parking space and finding time left on the clock. It’s the small things, ya know? :)

  9. Your favorite kind of weather?
  10. Sunshine, mid-70s with a light breeze. Ideally, it would also be around late May/early June, which is when my spring allergies subside.

  11. Did you enjoy high school?
  12. I did. I felt safe, protected, and I didn’t worry about too much.

  13. A pet peeve?
  14. At restaurants when I find leftover lipstick stains on my glass. YUCK!

  15. Something about yourself that surprises people:
  16. That I have a pretty good sense of humor. I guess people don’t expect me to be funny (do I ever look serious??).

  17. Eyes/lips/cheeks:
  18. Nothing yet (gonna work out in a few), but I’m thinking about wearing the MAC Look in a Box: Girl Next Door set.

  19. Weekly goals:
  20. To put one foot in front of the other and keep moving forward. :) Oh, and eat less crap!

Heya, Valentine. :) I’m sitting here at my desk, looking out the windows and watching the rain come in sideways. It’s crazy stormy out here today!

It blew in earlier this morning at around three, and I know this because the wind was howling and woke me up. Since I couldn’t go back to sleep (seriously, I’m thinking about renaming the site Makeup, Beauty and Insomnia Blog), I started thinking about a bunch of things, including something I want to focus on this week — letting go of the past and moving forward.

Sometimes I feel like I get caught up obsessing over my many mistakes. Do you ever do that? This week I really want to try focusing on putting one foot in front of the other.

Anywho, enough of my late night deep thoughts. If you have a few minutes, come say hi. I love to hear from you.

    1. Mood:
    Excited! Tomorrow I leave for a birthday vacation to sunny, warm Miami.

    2. Outfit:
    Cashmere dark-green sweater, pleated black wool skirt, knee-high black boots.

    3. Your favorite sweet treat?
    Not really a sweets person, but I love fresh pineapple, and sorbet made from pureed fresh pineapple.

    4. What always cheers you up?
    Re-reading one of my favorite books — it sounds strange but it’s almost like comfort food.

    5. Your favorite type of weather?
    Low 80′s, no humidity.

    6. Did you enjoy high school?
    It was okay. I studied a lot and did many extracurricular activities. It wasn’t horrifying or anything, but I was basically a nerd and math/science geek, so I sure wasn’t the most popular. I’m happier now, let’s say :).

    7. A pet peeve?
    People talking on their cell phones at restaurants, and people cracking their knuckles – both drive me craaaazy for some reason.

    8. Something about yourself that surprises people:
    I’m a black belt in karate and a pretty good marksman (or markswoman) — most people are surprise if they find out since I seem fairly quiet and “ladylike” at first blush.

    9. Eyes/lips/cheeks:
    Eyes – Lancome shadow in Erika F with a neutral Benefit cream shadow base (can’t remember the name); lips – Dior Creme de Gloss in 741; Cheeks – Illamasqua blush in Katie.

    10. Weekly goals:
    Have fun and do some shopping! I’ll be on vacation and for once will be content to accomplish nothing more than that :).

    5. Your favorite type of weather?
    - sunny but with the crisp air of fall <3.

    6. Did you enjoy high school?
    - i did! but i was ready to leave by the time i was a senior :p.

    7. A pet peeve?
    - people who have no manners. i'm seeing less and less from the future generations and it really disappoints me.

    8. Something about yourself that surprises people:
    - that i'm not as b*tchy as i look. haha!

    9. Eyes/lips/cheeks:
    - nothing on my face but josie maran argan oil at the moment. this is my favourite beauty product right now.

    1. Mood: Relaxed. Everyone is at our annual conference so I’m looking forward to the low stress week.
    2. Outfit: Jeans and loose button shirt.

    5. Your favorite type of weather? Overcase or sunny with very chilly winds.

    8. Something about yourself that surprises people: The amount and frequency of cursing. I am small and soft spoken but I sure weave a colorful tapestry of profanity. I don’t do it too often fortunately.

    8. Something about yourself that surprises people:

    Too Faced Neutral Eye – day look, L’Oreal True Match blush, Sally Hansel Diamond Lip Gloss

    10. Weekly goals:

  7. Heidi says:

    Ooh, honey, do I know what you’re talking about. I am the queen of obsessing about things. I’m really working on that, but it’s tough!

    1. Mood:

    Exhausted. Super busy weekend. I worked a ticket booth at a fund raising event on Saturday, after grocery shopping. Yesterday I spent the whole day at the annual Cat Show at the fairgrounds. Really fun, but I’m tired!

    2. Outfit:

    Navy blue sweats. I’m NOT going out in this rain!

    3. Your favorite sweet treat?

    Anything lemon flavored

    4. What always cheers you up?

    Fun 80s music and playing with Missy

    5. Your favorite type of weather?

    Sunny and warm, but not hot. Nothing over low 80s

    6. Did you enjoy high school?

    Hated it! Being different i.e., disabled, in high school is horrible. There were a few people I befriended who accepted me, but for the most part teenagers are pretty darn cruel.

    7. A pet peeve?

    People who will not commit to a plan, and then you’re left hanging not knowing if you’re doing something with them or not. It just seems rude — like I’ll just sit around and wait for you to decide if you want to meet for lunch, movie, whatever. Then I feel like I can’t get involved in anything while waiting for a call.

    8. Something about yourself that surprises people:

    My very eclectic music taste. I have everything from classical to heavy metal.

    9. Eyes/lips/cheeks:

    Bare at the moment. Not planning to go out.

    10. Weekly goals:

    Job hunting and getting my desk organized. It’s a bit of a disaster zone at the moment.

    • Karen says:

      How was the cat show? :) Inquiring cat lady minds want to know, LOL!

      • Heidi says:

        It was so much fun! Lots of exotic looking cats on display, some I’d never even knew existed. There was a section of cats up for adoption, but I tried to avoid that area… Missy would never forgive me if I came home with a surprise…

        I entered a raffle and won a bag of cat toys, so Missy is having fun with that today.

  8. larie says:

    7. A pet peeve? people who press the walk signal button over and over! you only need to hit it once! :P

      • Kerry says:

I actually just got a call that he’s not doing well, so I’m not driving down there now, since my parents left in the middle of the night (it’s a 10-hour drive for them, 14 for me).

    4. What always cheers you up? Email or a call from my friends.
    5. Your favorite type of weather? I’m torn. Sunny, in the 60s is perfect for fall hiking. I do enjoy a high 70s summer day too where you can be outside without sweating to death. I’m just going to hedge all bets and say that I also love a crisp, sunny winter day with lots of sparkling snow. I really like being in an area with 4 seasons, I guess. :)
    6. Did you enjoy high school? LOVED IT!
    7. A pet peeve? This might sound mean, but people who constantly use the phrase “take and (insert other verb/object)”. Like “I’m going to take and move this vase onto the mantle”. I was reminded of it this weekend when the Hubs was watching some DVDs and the instructor said it 1000 times. Sometimes it’s hard having an English degree. :)
    8. Something about yourself that surprises people: Oh, gosh. I’m pretty much a what you see is what you get kind of girl. Some new male work acquaintances have been surprised I play hockey with the hockey dads (before they get to know me). That’s about it.

    10. Weekly goals: Clean a little every night so it’s not piling up on the weekends when I have even less time than during the week. Of course, you know I can’t really be serious about a goal.
    PS Definitely let any past mistakes go. If I thought about all mine, I wouldn’t have time for anything else. You’re great the way you are now, and you couldn’t have gotten here without every good thing and every bad thing in your past. Be happy about your blessings and to heck with all that other junk! You rock! :)

    • Karen says:

      Are you okay, Fieran? Foot injuries take a long time to heal… I hope it isn’t too bad.

      • Fieran says:

        Aww, thanks for the concern, Karen *HUG*. I’m alright. I’m on anti-inflammatory medication that does seem to help – it should heal within a week otherwise I will need an x-ray but the doctor was quite convinced the inflammation will go away.

        The only problem is that I won’t get my 9 stars for the gym challenge thing – but oh well, we can’t have everything can we? My 4 Peacocky eyeshadow + the Prep & Prime Transparent Finishing Powder that I picked up in Berlin will have to soothe my wounded ego :)

        • Karen says:

          That’s good to hear. I’m sure you already know this but don’t overextend yourself… gotta give that foot some time to heal!

          As for the gym challenge thing, could you possibly do like an upper body boxing workout? Or maybe pushups (you could always do the ones where you’re on your knees)? That way you could get your gym on without having to mess with your foot…

          And yes, makeup has healing powers, LOL!

    1. Mood:
    - Excited for V-day festivities! Fiance sent flowers to my office today :) After a really REALLY bad few days in all aspects of life, it definitely made my day!

    2. Outfit:
    - Green BCBG top, black cardigan, black pants, black Nine West peep toe ankle strap 4″ heels. I knew everyone would wear red or pink today, so I opted for green.

    3. Your favorite sweet treat?
    - ANYTHING! I have a mayjah sweet tooth. But right now I’m going through a Nutella phase…so that haha

    4. What always cheers you up?
    - My pets. They have such unconditional love and are so funny. No matter what’s going on, cuddling with them always cheers me up. Oh, and a nice cold martini!

    5. Your favorite type of weather?
    - South Texas doesn’t really have specified “seasons” because the weather is so crazy, but I love March-May when the weather starts to get warm during the day but cool at night, and October-December when the time changes and it starts to get cold but the sun is out.

    6. Did you enjoy high school?
    - I don’t think I enjoyed it enough. I was always 16 going on 26. I worked hard at everything, had a job, and was so concerned with graduating and going to college and starting my career that life passed me by and I didn’t really get to enjoy being a kid.

      I heard you guys were having awesome weather! Um, JEALOUS!

      And yay, you’re wearing one of my fave NARS glosses. :) What kind of food did you and the hubs have for lunch?

      • Nina says:

        it was in the low 70s and windy – so lovely! :)

        ive fallen in <3 w/ NARS lipglosses. Turkish Delight is just so lovely, and the texture is awesome!

        we went to a place called Kenny & Ziggy's which serves deli food – think liver and onions, pastrami on rye and the biggest, yummiest chocolate eclair i have ever had! :)

        • Karen says:

          Oh, that’s good to hear! I know a lot of ladies are on the fence because of the plasticy smell… for me it seems to depend on the tube.

          Anywho, that deli sounds om nom nom! I’m now craving a turkey sandwich. :)

          Last night we went to an Italian place that’s kinda like our town’s Olive Garden… the food was just eh. But it was nice to spend time with my Valentine!

  34. kalcedon says:

    1. Mood: depressed, kind of hopeless (every once in a while I get into this “where is my life heading?/ “have I chosen the right major at university?”-phase…)
    2. Outfit: black yoga pants and a dark brown-turquoise-light grey, folwery patterned 3/4-sleeve top… kind of a chilling out-type of outfit
    3. Your favourite sweet treat? I have lots. Gummy candy, twirly hard candy (which look like twirly mints but in a fruity-milky flavour), slushies, white chocolate
    4. What always cheers you up? When I’m walking in the city and I see blooming flowers :).
    5. Your favourite type of weather? Breezy and kind of warm-when I could walk around in a short-sleeved top and a pair of jeans without being cold or sweating my ass off…
    6. Did you enjoy high school? Not really. I didn’t have any great FRIENDS (with capital letters) in my class, my parents were overly achievement-oriented, and I wanted to live up to everyone’s expectations, so I was studying day and night for classes I didn’t even understand well, and that resulted in me being anxious and neurotic all the time…
    7. A pet peeve? People not behaving appropriately at a formal occasion or at the theatre (not dressing up properly, making noise with candy packages, talking on the cell phone, not sitting appropriately-I saw someone in the theatre putting their feet on the seat in front of them :O-, bringing little kids to theatre plays who don’t even understand what’s going on and who are weary and are screaming and making noise all the time… I mean, I like children, but I paid for that ticket to actually hear and enjoy that play or concert)
    8. Something about yourself that surprises people: That I can stand up for myself and defend myself… lots of people think that because I’m shy, reserved and sometimes quiet, they can mock me, because I’m not gonna do anything or I’m gonna say ‘No problem, nevermind’… and they are surprised when they see I actually shout if I get angry, and if I’m molested, I’m one to kick and hit back.
    9. Eyes/lips/cheeks. Eyes: the golden brown and the dark purple shade from Essence’s Sun Club kit in 1/California dream (brown: all over the lid, purple: outer corner, smoked to lower lashline a bit) and some random black mascara. Cheeks: Essence silky touch blush in 30/Secret It-Girl. Lips: Labello Hydro Care chaptick/lipbalm.
    10. Weekly goals: start learning French again (it’s gonna be hard, because I started learning it 2 times, but the two complete moron teachers I got to know made me feel like a complete failure, and I stopped it because of it…)… if not in a school, just revise the basics through the net…

  35. Leah says:

    5. Your favorite type of weather? see above. I also love fall in New England.

    6. Did you enjoy high school? No, but I met some great people through work and I’m still friends with them today (from those HS years). I also started dating my husband in HS!

    • Karen says:

      That workout sounds intense. Is it a DVD?

      • l33n3r says:

        Yes! It’s a DVD by the Firm. It took me a few times through because the cueing was hard for me to follow at first. Overall it’s a great workout–cardio and weights, lots of lunges and not too much floor work. I think Jillian Michael’s No More Trouble Zones is still tougher, muscle-toning wise, but I like that 500 Calorie Workout is longer and has more cardio. I found it at Target for like $9. Enjoy!

You can’t reclaim ANY part of the bed as she’ll lie down horizontally and stick straight. It really ticks me off. Don’t let her somewhat tiny size deceive you.
