Makeup and Beauty Blog Monday Poll, Jan. 17

Published in: Just For Fun


Observe the low-hanging belly!

  • 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. 153. I’ve always enjoyed reading your answers in the comments, and I hope you enjoy reading mine.
  1. Mood:
  2. Pretty darn great. I had awful insomnia last week, but I was finally able to catch up on some sleep. It’s amazing how getting enough shut-eye changes everything. I feel like a whole new girl!

  3. Did you do anything fun over the weekend?
  4. Apart from sleeping so well last night (GLORIOUS!), I saw a couple of movies I really enjoyed: Charlie St. Cloud (stars Zac Efron; sad and touching with beautiful shots of the Pacific Northwest) and Knight and Day (Tom Cruise and Cameron Diaz; surprisingly funny and filmed almost like a comic book). I also spent some time at the mall with El Hub (he needed new jeans) and just happened to make my way over to the Kate Spade store…which I left with a new pair of shoes. Whoops!

  5. The new season of Jersey Shore: Love it or leave it?
  6. Leave it. I actually enjoyed the first season (my secret shame!). I found the cast oddly charming, ya know, in their special way. 🙂 But this third season just isn’t doing it for me anymore. I think reality TV fame has taken its toll on the cast members…

  7. What’s the last beauty-related thing you’ve done for yourself?
  8. I just partook of Burt’s Bees Almond Milk Beeswax Hand Creme. Have you tried it before? My dry hands just love the stuff.

  9. Do you do any arts/crafts like knitting, drawing, etc.?
  10. Yes! I enjoy knitting, although I’m not very good at it. And I also enjoy photography and drawing.

  11. Favorite spring makeup collection so far?
  12. Right now I’m lovin’ on Laura Mercier’s Silk Road, but I’m sure something else will come along to distract me (I’m fickle that way!).

  13. Have you been sticking to your New Year’s resolutions?
  14. Well, not exactly. I wanted to eat healthier and exercise more this year, but truthfully last week was a TOTAL bust (the combination of PMS and insomnia made for several poor food/exercise decisions). But this week is an opportunity to start over, and I’m looking forward to getting back on track.

  15. What makeup do you reach for when you only have 5 minutes to get ready?
  16. Chanel Mat Lumiere Soft Matte Makeup Foundation, MAC Pro Longwear Concealer, Urban Decay Afterglow Glide-On Cheek Tint, Benefit Instant Brow, the Shu Uemura Lash Curler, Ultraflesh Pathera Mascara and Chanel Rouge Allure Gloss in Imaginaire

  17. Outfit?
  18. I plan to go for a run over my lunch break, so I’m wearing my gray workout capris, a multi-colored t-shirt I found on sale for $8 at Lucky Jeans (says “Rolling Thunder Salt Flats Speedway 1957” on the front) and a red button-down shirt.

  19. Weekly goals:
  20. Drink two extra glasses of water each day (haven’t been very good about staying hydrated), take Tabs out for walks if it gets warm enough, practice my deep breathing exercises, and look for the positives in everything.

Today’s Martin Luther King, Jr. Day here in the U.S. 🙂 If you have the day off from work I hope you’re enjoying yourself. Because Tabs never gives me any time off (that cat is a taskmaster!), I’ll be at the computer today, so I’d love some company. Can you stop by to say hi in the Monday Poll?

  5. Beth says:

    Happy Monday Karen! I’m glad you got some sleep, there’s nothing worse than trying to function like a normal member of society when you’re exhausted. I finally got to bed at 12:30am last night and had to get up at 5:30am…ouch! Needless to say I’ve been on caffeine and sugar all day and I’m going to crash in a couple of hours.

    1. Mood: Tired but very happy. Work started off stressful but I got a new laptop today (and its turquoise!!!!) so it ended better.

    2. Did you do anything fun over the weekend? It was my birthday last Wednesday so I had belated birthday dinner and drinks with my friends. Other than that, I slept!

    3. The new season of Jersey Shore: Love it or leave it? Love it. Totally love it. I’m never usually a big fan of reality TV but I’m addicted to the Shore. Mostly because I feel like those people are SO different to me, or anyone I know that Its sorta like a trip to the zoo! 🙂

    4. Last beauty-related thing you did for yourself? This will sound weird, but the last thing I did was to not do anything. I’ve had a weird reaction to Bare Minerals foundation which I bought last week so I’m giving my skin a breather until the bumps go down. That means no makeup for a few days.

    5. Do you do any arts/crafts like knitting, drawing, etc.? No, I’m not great at that sort of thing. I’m wordy rather than arty if that makes sense.

    6. Favorite spring makeup collection so far? I’m liking the look of the Nars collection, but thats really all.

    7. Have you been sticking to your New Year’s resolutions? I didn’t make any because I knew I wouldn’t stick to them! 🙂

    8. What makeup do you reach for when you only have 5 minutes to get ready? YSL Singulier Mascara, MAC Painterly or Bare Study paint pot, Smashbox Halo Powder, MAC Syrup lipstick.

    9. Outfit: Right now? Leopard print satin PJs! lol Today, it was a grey suit with a cream turtle neck top.

    10. Weekly goals: Stay calm. Work is stressful (or should I say people at work are stressful) and I’m not coping well with it so I need to try harder. Try to eat better and also have a pre-spring clean. I’m getting slobby in my old age!

    Have a great week! x

    1. Mood: Surprisingly chipper for a rainy Monday here in “sunny” South FLA…maybe cuz it’s my mom’s birthday today – Happy Birthday Mummy!!

    2. Did you do anything fun over the weekend? Yup…I shopped…a lot more than I should’ve but Bath & Body Works is getting rid of my 2nd favorite scent so I HAD to go stock up 😉 and the Coach store made some money off me as well

    3. The new season of Jersey Shore: Love it or leave it? -_- never watched it…fully. I’ve only seen a few episodes here and there from the 1st, 2nd and now this season and I can’t get into it…between that and Jerseylicious I’m not looking forward to ever traveling to the ‘Garden State’

    No, just the urgent care. See above re: torn rotator cuff.

  17. Kerry says:

    I’m glad you finally got some sleep, Karen! I know how awfully frustrating it is to not be able to fall asleep. I was diagnosed with chronic insomnia in high school, though I’ve had it since elementary school. 🙁

    1. Mood: I’ve been better. I have an inner and outer ear infection in both ears, which is causing some major vertigo, pain, and nausea. 🙁

    3. The new season of Jersey Shore: Love it or leave it? Love it. I’m a trash TV junkie. The trashier, the better…though I am really tired of The Situation, Ronnie, and Sammi. If I see Sammi make her “bitch face” one more time…Grr

    6. Favorite spring makeup collection so far? So far, I’m not excited about anything.

    7. Have you been sticking to your New Year’s resolutions? I was, until this double-double ear infection thing. The nausea makes me want to eat nothing but Jell-O, and the vertigo is putting off my half-marathon training and weight training sessions.

    8. What makeup do you reach for when you only have 5 minutes to get ready? Lacura foundation ($3.49 at Aldi!), E.L.F. HD powder, E.L.F.

  20. Summer Gray says:

    1. Mood: Started off slow, but working towards productive.
    2. Did you do anything fun over the weekend?
    I worked this weekend. I have several celebrity clients and one is prepping for a world tour, so while I don’t normally have to work on weekends, this weekend was an exception. On a more fun note, I bought two great tops! In desperate need of new clothes that are not ‘work out’ related!

    3. The new season of Jersey Shore: Love it or leave it?
    Leave it I guess. I have never watched it, not really interested by it. But I will admit two of my guilty pleasures are Desperate Housewives of New York and Gossip Girl. I just can’t help myself!

    4. Last beauty-related thing you did for yourself?
    Took a bath with this awesome grape seed oil (soooo good for you!) from L’Occitane. One of my favorite stores for all body products. Everything smells so good and natural. And it is truly yummy on the skin!

    5. Do you do any arts/crafts like knitting, drawing, etc.?
    I’m a massage therapist and a makeup artist, so I feel like I’m doing art all the time. It’s so awesome to have work that constantly allows you (and sometimes forces you) to be creative.

    6. Favorite spring makeup collection so far?
    Having a favorite means having to choose. I’m an equal opportunist. I love MAC & Stila shadows. Also Benefit’s cream shadows they go on so nicely, stay all day, and don’t crease!

    7. Have you been sticking to your New Year’s resolutions?
    Yes. My resolution this year was to make it the year of YES. Say yes to all opportunities if I have the time. Weather they are work related, friend related, or otherwise. I am seizing the day, every day.

    8. What makeup do you reach for when you only have 5 minutes to get ready?
    I reach for Pinch O peach blush by MAC, Maybelline Colossal Volume Express Mascara, Benefit’s creme shadow in Birthday Suit, and any pink MAC gloss that’s handy!

    9. Outfit:
    workout clothes: Black running pants and a black tank top. I fully intend on working out before I go to work…although you know what they say about the best laid plans!

    10. Weekly goals:

    3. The new season of Jersey Shore: Love it or leave it?
    – as with all other seasons, LEAVE IT.

    – i just slathered some josie maran argan oil all over my face. it feels so lovely :).

    5. Do you do any arts/crafts like knitting, drawing, etc.?
    – not a lot but the last one i did was a frame from ikea that i wrapped in a graphic fabric (also from ikea). voila! instant art 🙂

    6. Favorite spring makeup collection so far?
    – estée lauder wild violet, for sure. purple’s my fave colour.
