Makeup and Beauty Blog Monday Poll, Jan. 10

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. 152. I’ve always enjoyed reading your answers in the comments, and I hope you enjoy reading mine.
  1. Mood:
  2. A little groggy, but after a few cups (or perhaps maybe a vat) of caffeine ye olde mental motor will be cranking at full speed. Right now I’m drinking a mug of Green Tea Tropical, by Mighty Leaf. Have you ever had it? It’s so good!

  3. Pressing beauty issue o’ the moment?
  4. The skin on my body’s itchy, dry and uncomfortable right now. 🙁 I think it’s because it’s been so darn cold here in Nor Cal (FYI, chilly for the Bay Area means 40s and lower 50s), and the combo of brisk air on the outside and dry central heat on the inside’s sucking all the moisture out of my skin.

  5. Pajama Jeans: yea or nay?
  6. Don’t hate, but I keep seeing commercials for these stretchy pseudo-denims (“Where style meets comfort!”) and have come very close to ordering a pair. Hey, you also get a free gray crew neck tee with each purchase!

  7. Things you always seem to be doing:
  8. Washing makeup brushes, searching for the lint roller, microwaving frozen veggie burritos, carrying laundry up and down the stairs, slathering on lotion, writing lists…

  9. One positive thing you’re doing today to make your life a little better?
  10. Come hell or high water, my @ss is getting on the treadmill and running four miles. IT IS DECIDED.

  11. Something on your shopping lust list?
  12. Some over-the-knee boots. I’ve been resisting because I’ve been afraid of looking like a short, brown Jack Sparrow, but I saw a petite gal rockin’ them at the mall yesterday and she looked really cute. I’d like a pair in black suede, with a 2-inch heel. Got any suggestions for me?

  13. Last movie you watched?
  14. Camille with James Franco and Sienna Miller. He’s a parolee and unwilling groom forced to marry a woman he doesn’t love. On their honeymoon trip to Niagra Falls there’s an accident, and Sienna’s character, Camille, ends up “kinda” dead — of course she doesn’t realize it, and mayhem ensues. Also in the film: several brightly painted carnival ponies, an oddly touching scene involving a formaldehyde sponge bath and breathtaking shots of the waterfalls. If the plot and pacing were tighter it might’ve been cool, but the flick falls flat.

  15. Last person you smiled at?
  16. El Hub, right before he walked out the door for work.

  17. Outfit?
  18. I’m dressed purely for warmth right now: stretchy black pants (Pajama Jeans would certainly spice things up!), a pink long-sleeve thermal and gray zip up hoodie.

  19. Weekly goals:
  20. Continue the organizational kick I’m currently on, find an ab workout DVD I don’t hate (situps = blah!), eat plenty of fruit/veggies with every meal.

Heya, ladies. It’s been a little slow going this morning (this tea needs to hurry up and kick in already!), but otherwise it’s been a good on this end. If we worked together, I’d pop by your cubicle and drag you out for a cuppa joe so we could catch up. Since we’re separated by a computer screen, the Monday Poll will have to do for now. Take a moment to let me know what’s up, will ya? 🙂

  19. Kerry says:

    1. Mood: Excited/nervous. I have a HUGE interview for the position of my dreams (cheesy, but true) tomorrow afternoon.
    2. Pressing beauty issue o’ the moment? My brows. Luckily, I have a natural soft shape that looks only slightly unkempt if they’re fully grown out, but I’m spending the day tweezing them. I hate having them waxed because everyone makes them too thin. However, I’m such a baby that I can only tweeze a fraction of underneath my brows before I have to take a break. :/
    3. Pajama Jeans: yea or nay? YEA! I hate that there’s no button (they have brass rivets on the back, why not a fake button) because it makes them look like Pajama Jeans. But I bet they’re great for traveling.
    4. Things you always seem to be doing: Laundry, cleaning, organizing, planning my wedding (!!!) reading beauty blogs/watching beauty vids on YT.
    5. One positive thing you’re doing today to make your life a little better? Getting my closet organized. I know I’m an As Seen on TV junkie, but I swear by these Wonder Hangers.

    9. Outfit: HAHA. Laundry/cleaning day. I’m literally in a cami, granny panties, and bathrobe. No lie.
    10. Weekly goals: Nail this interview, get the bathroom organized, help my fiance rearrange his mancave.

    1. Mood: I too am finding it a bit difficult to get my head on straight this morning! I got into the office at 7:30am (and am now taking a quick break!) and I am not firing on all cylinders! I had a new hire orientation this morning and kept mixing up my words! Eek!

    2. Pressing beauty issue o’ the moment? Since my NorCal skin cannot handle these super cold (for us!) temps, my facial skin is dry and FLAKY! It’s like no matter how much I exfoliate and moisturize my foundation looks gross! I even resorted to buying Dermalogica’s SUPER RICH REPAIR cream yesterday, so we’ll see how that goes. Does anyone use it and love it?

    3. Pajama Jeans: yea or nay? Ha! Nay…those are right up there with the Snuggie (which I actually have and love so maybe I shouldn’t talk…) and the Shake Weight…which…OK…I won’t say it.

    4. Things you always seem to be doing: LAUNDRY, cooking, cleaning, organizing. It’s like there is never enough time to get it all done. 🙂

    5. One positive thing you’re doing today to make your life a little better? Eating a healthy lunch. 🙂

    6. Something on your shopping lust list? Oh man…lots of stuff. Maybe some Chanel make-up since I can’t bring myself to actually spend that kind of money for make-up!

    7. Last movie you watched? Easy A. Amazing.

    8. Last person you smiled at? My co-worker and she said “hi.”

    9. Outfit: Gray slacks, black cowl neck sweater (blech…boring!) and my red puffer jacket. I’m SOOO cold in my office!

    10. Weekly goals: I have a super busy week ahead of me including a bach party in SF this weekend. So much to do before then, including my very first spray tan (I’m doing a test run before the actual wedding at the end of January.) Thoughts or tips on spray tans?? So I guess my goal is to stay sane and kind. 🙂

    • Karen says:

      I’ve never done a spray tan, but I’ve read that exfoliating pre-spray is very important.

      I haven’t tried Super Rich Repair; you’ll have to let me know if it’s any good. I’m a Clarins Hydraquench kinda girl; it works great for my uber dry/combo skin.

  23. Christy says:

    1. Mood:
    motivated! Mostly thanks to this awesome work-out/diet tracker my mom got me (called Diet & Exercise Diary by Hinkler Books – only $3.99 at Barnes & Noble). It’s an amazing tool to meet my goals AND it’s written by our friends over the ocean because it’s ‘yoghurt’ & ‘colour’ which makes it more fun to read IMO 🙂
    2. Pressing beauty issue o’ the moment?
    dry lips! One big downfall of this weather 🙁

    I would like to go to Nordsrtom and get some premium denim jeans. Also, a couple of pairs of good quality, weather-proof knee-high boots. I have been looking at some from La Canadienne on Zappos. If I get a bonus at work, I’ll be doing some shopping. 🙂

    I was thinking about some OTK boots as well, but I’m only 5′ tall so I would be concerned about looking too short. I don’t have any recs, but I like Zappos, Endless and Piperlime for online shoe shopping.

    7. Last movie you watched?
    True Grit. A young girl recruits two marshalls to avenge her father’s murder. I know it’s gotten a lot of buzz, and it was a good movie, but not “OMG awesome”. 🙂

    • Karen says:

      I’m 5’2” and appearing stumpy is always something I have to think about. The girl I saw was wearing black from head to toe — I think that’s why the boots worked on her.

      Hope you get that work bonus! I need someone to help enable me, haha!

    1. Mood:
    Frazzled. BIG TIME. So many deadlines, so little time!

    Okay, I’m not going to do the whole list, but I did want to say that Victoria’s Secret’s boots are all clearanced right now and they do have some super cute choices! So that’s where I’d look first, just because I love to bargain shop. I’m also voting nay on pajama jeans. I could never take someone seriously if they were wearing pajama jeans!!!

    Stressed and angry, My teacher mailed me today that I have a test tomorrow.. I have a lot to learn and to do but I don’t want to study because I know I’m going to fail because I know studying one day for a test is not enough for me!

  52. Kate & Zena says:

    It’s the freaking out week since school starts next week. AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!

    1. Mood:
    Veeeeeeeeeeeeeeeery sleepy and very unmotivated to comment (and I like commenting!). The writing bunny protested by going to Sydney, Australia the day after finals (it had had enough after 2 6-page papers and a massive 12-page paper). It’s finally state-side, but vacationing in the Texan heat. What’s worse is that the bunny didn’t take me to either place.

    2. Pressing beauty issue o’ the moment?
    Two dry patches on my face. It’s annoying as the rest of my body is nice and moisturized (even in the chilly 21 w/wind chill temperature and 8 mph winds), but I have TWO little dry patches on my face. ARGH!!!!!

    3. Pajama Jeans: yea or nay?
    Um, no. Pajamas are meant to be slept in…and I prefer them with the Grinch or Snoopy stamped all over the bottom, if they’re made in fleece. I do not go out in public with my jammies on…unless it’s A) to the mailbox (which is down the driveway for me) or B) to the ER for a migraine shot. There’s no use in changing into jeans if the medicine I’m getting is going to make me go to sleep. Give me my regular ol’ denim!

    4. Things you always seem to be doing:
    Occupying Zena, sleeping, going to the dentist, going to the root canal dentist (ugh), doing dishes, doing laundry, being on the computer….I seem to do a lot a lot

    Calling the root canal dentist….again. Did I mention I need six root canals? This is going to be a fun year for me…..not to mention I need teeth pulled. I just love going to the dentist (not).

    6. Something on your shopping lust list?
    The new House of Night book. I want, I want, I want I want I want! And about five thousand other things. My list never seems to end…..

    7. Last movie you watched?
    The Swan Princess I tend to watch a different movie every night. It helps me wind down. What’s really funny is that I only have 50-something movies so I repeat movies a lot. I know most of the dialogue to most of my movies. I also Netflix a lot.

    8. Last person you smiled at?
    Does Zena count?

    9. Outfit:
    “I Love Snoopy” pajamas that are red on top (with Snoopy and the yellow bird) and light blue fuzzy bottoms with Snoopy and the yellow bird in all different directions; I’ve had them for three years and they’re my favorite pajamas.
    New white with mulit-colored polka dots Tommy Hilfiger fuzzy robe that I got for Christmas (bought from TJ Max on sale for $19.99. Original price: $50.00. Ha ha ha ha ha!).
    Light blue, heather grey and dark grey striped slipper socks that probably need to be replaced because they’re starting to develop holes.
    Dark blue Dreamform fuzzy slippers. I match so well! Ha ha ha.

    10. Weekly goals:
    Go to Office for Students with Disabilities (my favorite place…not)
    Call the root canal dentist
    Go to the neurologist
    Go to the psychiatrist
    Prepare for the hell that is school starting the 18th

    4. Things you always seem to be doing: Dishes! Ugh.
    5. One positive thing you’re doing today to make your life a little better? Cutting class to catch up on sleep. Is that positive? I think putting my health and sanity before a lecture is alright just this once.

    10. Weekly goals: Complete my assignment that’s due this coming Monday.

  58. Andrea says:

    Karen! Have you tried Buffy from Lush before? I feel like it would really help with your dry skin! Use it like a soap in the shower, it’s cocoa and shea butter based as well as exfoliating so it moisturises too. I am an SA at Lush, but it’s really a great product that I’d recommend regardless 🙂
    I am interested in over-the-knee boots as well but really haven’t seen any I love enough to buy 🙁

    2. Pressing beauty issue o’ the moment? i have a crack in the corner of my mouth (bleh angular cheilitis)..and its not due to dry skin, but instead a lack of B vitamins. which is weird because i take a multi vitamin every damn day! oh well. so that’s healing, but not fast enough.

  66. Catherine says:

    1. Mood: If cold could be a mood, I would be cold. I totally agree with you that it’s been CHILLY in the Bay Area recently. It’s not even that cold but it feels freezing!

    2. Pressing beauty issue o’ the moment? I have this mark right above my right jawline that kind of looks like a hickey. It’s actually the hyperpigmentation left over from a massive mosquito bite. Not cute. T_T;

    3. Pajama Jeans: yea or nay? So, I gotta be honest, at first I was like o_____O ehhhh? But I watched the infomercial and I’m kinda tempted too. I basically don’t wear jeans throughout the winter and drier months since I have dermatographia and even leggings that aren’t soft enough can cause enough rubbing to make me itchy…so, those actually look kinda awesome.

    4. Things you always seem to be doing: Procrastinating, trying to clear my desk and dresser top of stuff, cleaning my floor, laundry, wondering what to make for dinner, running out the door just late enough to just miss the shuttle/bus.

      Hi Alice!

      How’s your forehead since you’ve gone off the toner? Is it better?

      Oh, and if you just have one or two pimples, I’ll give you the best procedure I’ve ever gotten from my mom, if you want to get rid of them; you’ll need a clean washcloth, warm water, a pimple extractor and either benzoyl peroxide or salicylic acid (I think you’re the one that uses Retin-A. You can use your Retin-A if you want to).

      1. Wet your washcloth with warm water and wring.
      2. Place warm washcloth on pimple for about thirty seconds to a minute. This will bring your pimple to a ” head.” If it is at a head, it will help bring all that nasty stuff in your pimple up to the surface.
      3. Take the washcloth off and grab your clean extractor (use rubbing alcohol to clean your extractor!). Make sure you put the pimple in the center of the hole in the extractor and press firmly (but not too firmly) down; do not make a back and forth motion! You want to get all the gunk out of your pore, so you want to push down until you see a tiny bit of blood come out of your pore. That means everything is out.
      4. Once you wipe off the gunk, rub in a tiny bit of the acne gel you chose with clean hands. You can put on an ice cube to reduce the redness if you wish.

      P.S. It is better to do this at night as the area will be red for awhile. That and I don’t like the idea of putting makeup on a newly extracted spot. It just doesn’t seem right.

    Mood: tranquil and content :).

    Pressing beauty issue at the moment: facial hair… ugh.

    Pajama jeans: nay… I prefer my super soft lousy “kill me before I go out in this” pants.

    Things you always seem to be doing: studying, applying lipbalm, procrastinating, overanalyzing everything (and the fun stuff: writing, daydreaming)

    One positive thing you’re doing today to make your life better: I actually posted a poem of mine on my blog (I mean, I’ve been writing for ages, but now I was brave enough to show it to the public… well, in my book, that was a really nice challenge for me… maybe I’m gonna be more confident and braver if it comes to other decisions and challenges in my life)

    Someting on your shopping list? Way too many things (I picked up a few today, but still, there are way too many). I need an eye primer, a Manhattan Intense Moisture&Gloss lipstick (I still don’t know which shade I’d like… I mean, if I could I would buy ALL!) and a dark blue eyeshadow are leading the list :).

    Outfit: black pants, a black-grey-black-red top with swirl pattern and a red cardigan over it.
