Makeup and Beauty Blog Monday Poll, Jan. 24

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. 154. I’ve always enjoyed reading your answers in the comments, and I hope you enjoy reading mine.
  1. Mood:
  2. A bit overwhelmed by a couple of big projects (stay tuned!), but they’re almost ready. Just have to remember to breathe. 🙂

  3. Are you a red lipstick kinda girl?
  4. Most definitely. I love red lipstick in all its incarnations (blueish reds, brick reds, orangey reds, pinkish reds, I’ll take ’em all), but my favorites are deep, rich mattes, a la MAC Russian Red. Throw in thick, black cat eyeliner and a pretty blush, and I feel ready for (almost) anything.

  5. Do you wear a watch?
  6. Yup, but it sho’ ain’t fancy. It’s a gray/black Timex Ironman… I know, not exactly fashion forward, but it’s easy to read, waterproof, has a timer and glows in the dark!

  7. What was the most cringe-worthy beauty moment of your teenage years?
  8. Where do I begin? Well, perhaps at the peak of my big hair phase, circa 1989. My bangs were beyond high, and I had side wings so wide that I probably looked like I was about to take to the air, LOL! I must have looked like a lion…with braces and acid-washed overalls.

  9. Have you ever purchased a beauty product from a vending machine?
  10. I actually have! There’s a ProActive machine at the mall by my house. I’ve picked up bottles of their Repairing Lotion many a time.

  11. Do you like where you live?
  12. Yes. Truthfully, I didn’t think I’d end up in the suburbs (I’ve always been more of a city girl), but the burbs have perks. It’s so much easier to do “life” things out here, like go grocery shopping, visit the Target (always a struggle when I lived in San Francisco), and here I rarely have to deal with bumper-to-bumper traffic. Plus, I have a garage now, which is a luxury I would have never been able to afford living in the city.

  13. Is there a movie you’ve been wanting to see?
  14. Yup. That cheesy-looking romcom with Ashton Kutcher and Natalie Portman, No Strings Attached. Predictable? Yeah, probably, but sometimes I just don’t want to have to think too hard, ya know?

  15. Where would you like to visit?
  16. I would love to go back to Kauai for a solo vacation. I went once back in 1999 and hiked all over the island, but I felt like I didn’t have the chance to really see and do everything I wanted to. I would love to be able to spend half the trip doing outdoorsy things, and the other half doing nothing but hanging out at the beach/pool/spa. Ah, someday, someday…

  17. What’s one thing you love about yourself?
  18. When the chips are down, I think I’m able to get things done. Mind you, I’ll have a breakdown or two, and tears will be spilled along the way, but the important stuff still seems to work itself out.

  19. Weekly goals:
  20. Stay calm, focus, and remember to take breaks throughout the day. Do the 30 Day Shred at least four times, and try not to freak out! 🙂

Hey, cutie pie. I think I’m gonna need your help this week! Can you spare any words of encouragement? I know you’re really busy, too, but how about taking a moment to touch base in the Monday Poll? Maybe we can momentarily distract each other with some chit-chat.

    1. Mood: I’m ok, but everyone else seems kinda grumpy today! Our pipes froze, so that’s put a kink in everyone’s schedule.

    2. Are you a red lipstick kinda girl? Not really much a lipstick girl period. I always like it on other people, but never on myself. And I don’t really like the way lipstick feels on my lips, I much prefer a gloss or balm.

    3. Do you wear a watch? Not usually.

    4. What was the most cringe-worthy beauty moment of your teenage years? Ha, definately my apparent aversion to tweezers and hair products. I always cringe when I see my mammoth brows from my early teenage days lol. You could say I was a beauty late bloomer for sure, I didn’t start getting into that stuff until college.

    5. Have you ever purchased a beauty product from a vending machine? Nope, but I would if the opportunity presented itself, that’s quite novel!

    6. Do you like where you live? Yes. I love New England.

    7. Is there a movie you’ve been wanting to see? Ehhhhh, a few.

    8. Where would you like to visit? Anywhere in Europe, I love it there and there are still so many countries I want to see. And actually I’ve really been wanting to check out Hawaii for the past few years. I used to look for jobs there and threatened my hubs that if I got one we’d be moving lol.

    9. What’s one thing you love about yourself? I’m playful, and funny (well I think so anyway!)

    10. Weekly goals: Stay on top of my reading for my Social and Cultural Foundation class (won’t be hard because I’m enjoying it) and organize all my papers, folders and whatnots from last week. I still realllllllllllllllly need to look up HR stuff for my Dad too, I’ve been meaning to do that for weeks and keep forgetting 😛

  13. Ruchita says:

    Mood:
    Doing pretty good. Busy with work, but it’s not too crazy and overwhelming right now.

    Are you a red lipstick kinda girl?
    I love the look on others, but I have not tried it myself. It’s seems a bit to dressy for my every day look.

    Do you wear a watch?
    I used to – I had a Swatch back in the day – but I’m in front of my PC for most of the day or just check my cell phone.

    What was the most cringe-worthy beauty moment of your teenage years?
    Definitely wearing the wrong shade of foundation. In some pictures from that time, my face is a completely different color than my neck. Yikes!

    Have you ever purchased a beauty product from a vending machine?
    Nope. I don’t think I’ve seen any beauty product vending machines, but I would give it a try.

    Do you like where you live?
    Mostly – I’m about 30 minutes away from work, and my friends and family are close. We met with a realtor to see if it’s feasible to move to a bigger place that’s a bit closer to work. Weather wise, it’s not the greatest – I don’t like winter, but I can’t imagine pulling up roots and just moving somewhere else – especially in this economy.

    Is there a movie you’ve been wanting to see?
    A few – Blue Valentine, Buried, Despicable Me.

    Where would you like to visit?
    I too would love to go back to Kauai. It is my favorite Hawaiian island. I’d also like to see the Big Island. My absolute dream vacation is Tahiti, especially Bora Bora with those over the water bungalows.

    What’s one thing you love about yourself?
    I like to think that I’m pretty patient and laid back. I’m not too high maintenance, which I think my husband likes. 🙂

    Weekly goals:
    Try to clean as I go so I’m not too overwhelmed with housework at the end of the week. Drink plenty of water and eat a couple of fruits and vegetables each day.

    Have a great Monday and good luck with your projects!

    P.S. Thanks for posting a picture of a cute kitty. That always makes Monday better. 🙂

    2. Are you a red lipstick kinda girl?

    My short, coarse, wavy hair, which I was constantly desperately trying to straighten but couldn’t.

    Only if beauty products were sold in vending machines here first! But then again, it would have to depend on the brand too haha!

    6. Do you like where you live?
    I do. Apart from the traffic jam during peak hours (Then again, not as bad as most areas around where I stay), it’s quite a good and convenient place with a lot of amenities and facilities within reach, and not to mention security here is really good too!

    How I’m still able to get things done whenever there are obstacles, just like you Karen! Same, I might rant and rave and erupt and break down for a while, but in the end it’ll be all right.

    10. Weekly goals:
    Finish up spring cleaning, get my hair done, get my pedicure, finish up shopping and stocking up on important things and rest more so that I don’t fall ill for Lunar New Year/Chinese New Year next week!

    3. Do you wear a watch? – I just got a watch a few weeks ago! It’s a cheapo, very sparkly white watch. Unfortunately the band is plastic and my new jeans turned it kind of blue 🙁 Sad. So now I’m back on the hunt for a new one!

    No… wish I did, though.

    Alice In Wonderland!! It’s on my Netflix instant queue. I just haven’t had time to watch it.

    How (relatively) easygoing I am. I tend to be really good at letting inconsequential issues roll off my back. 🙂

    1. Mood:
    – Excited! It’s mine and Fiance’s 2 year anniversary =)

    2. Are you a red lipstick kinda girl?
    – Well, this winter I tried to be, but I don’t think I succeeded. I rocked Buxom’s Barcelona and KVD’s Underage Red a couple times, but I couldn’t seem to get it right. Practice makes perfect I guess!

    3. Do you wear a watch?
    – No, not anymore! I always seem to break my watches.

    4. What was the most cringe-worthy beauty moment of your teenage years?
    – Foundation! I could never find the right match. I may have overdone the glitter a tad though now that I think of it lol.

    5. Have you ever purchased a beauty product from a vending machine?
    – I didn’t even know they had that! I totally would though, depending on what it is.

    6. Do you like where you live?
    – No =( I moved to this small crappy town because this is the place to be for what fiance and I do (he’s a parole officer and I’m a probation officer). No one can seem to find anything to do but get arrested, and there’s a max security prison as well as two transfer facilities in this town. So the work experience is fantastic! But the people here are not so great. I also just got a letter in the mail saying that if you’ve been drinking the water, you should go to the doctor because apparently increased consumption will cause kidney or liver failure, damages to your central nervous system, and could potentially increase your risk for cancer! I miss home lol.

    7. Is there a movie you’ve been wanting to see?
    – None that I can think of at the moment. I’d been wanting to see Despicable Me forever and finally got to see it last weekend! =)

    8. Where would you like to visit?
    – I’d like to go back to Hawaii. Honolulu was amazing!

    9. What’s one thing you love about yourself?
    – I love that I put my family first. At the end of the day, they’re all you’ve got!

    – To run at least 30 minutes every day
    – To clean my kitchen like new
    – To give Fiance a little bit of slack and realize that he’s human just like me
    – To look at the bright side
    – And as always, to have fun!

  29. 1. Mood:
    – optimistic 🙂

    2. Are you a red lipstick kinda girl?
    – i just started wearing red lipstick late last year and now i’m really getting into it!

    3. Do you wear a watch?
    – no, though i do like big, masculine watches. i just don’t see the point since i always have my phone with me.

    4. What was the most cringe-worthy beauty moment of your teenage years?
    – probably when i insisted on parting my big hair down the center… ALWAYS. ugh. i looked like a mushroom.

    5. Have you ever purchased a beauty product from a vending machine?
    – no, but i did want to when i saw a mark. vending machine in california a few years ago!

    6. Do you like where you live?
    – hmmm. yes and no. i love vancouver; it’s beautiful, the weather is great, the people are nice. but as a performer, there aren’t a lot of good opportunities available. i’m a new york kind of girl so if i could live anywhere else it would be there… i’ll take london, too :p.

    7. Is there a movie you’ve been wanting to see?
    – tangled! i heard it was really good. i’ve been wanting to watch inception again, too.

    8. Where would you like to visit?
    – oh goodness. here goes the list: london, paris, tokyo, anywhere in greece, anywhere in italy, south africa, australia… i just want to TRAVEL!

    9. What’s one thing you love about yourself?
    – i’m a hard worker 🙂

      GURL! How was your birthday?!?

      • snoopysteph says:

        My birthday weekend was fun! I went out to dinner with some friends Saturday night (1/15) and they were kind enough to treat me. I had one LARGE margarita, let me tell you! On Sunday 1/16 (my actual birthday) I went to a minor league hockey game with my family & some friends which was really fun, although my 3 year old did not appreciate the loud noises. We were 3 rows from the ice so it was pretty noisy. On Monday I treated myself to a spa day (massage, facial, mani/pedi) and that was probably the best part of the whole birthday weekend. 🙂 Onward & upward in my 31st year! 😀

  34. Fabienne says:

    Too pooped to fill out the whole survey right now, but will definitely say: GO SEE no strings attached! love Ashton Kutcher and he so does not disappoint in this movie! Natalie Portman is fabulous as always in this flick, too. Lovely, lovely.

    8. Where would you like to visit? Somewhere warm and sandy..
    9. What’s one thing you love about yourself? My twisted sense of humor.
    10. Weekly goals: Survive! Might be comin down with a cold, gotta make it through to Saturday night for a big event Im attending with friends. The Mens Chorus does a Ladies Night Out where we rent a party bus and do a bar crawl all dressed in drag. So hysterical. Just gotta make it this year!!
    Wishin you some extra LURVE, Karen. You can do it!!! –B

    • Karen says:

      I haven’t tried Russian Red with Brick… putting it on my “to try” list right now!

      And I’m really happy to hear you’re loving Phoenix now. It’s always good to feel that “at home” feeling in a new town.

      • Brian McD says:

        FOr the first year I was WAY south of Phoenix, and then for the next year+ I was in Tempe, which is only 20 minutes southwest of Phoenix, but what a world of difference. Nothing to do there unless you are 21y/o. It wasn’t until I moved downtown and joined the choir that I really started to make friends and gain my social life back again.

        You will love Russian Red and Brick together. It is JUST a shade deeper and warmer and gives your lips great dimension while still being nice and bright in the center of the lips and still very attention getting. It also helps get rid of the -smidge- of blue that can make it look pinkish and ‘smear-y’ around the edges on us golden toned folks. It is my classic go-to pin-up girl look and the brick liner trick also works wonders on red-heads!!

  36. Kayann says:

    1. Mood: ehhh, a little tired. I tossed and turned all night.

    2. Are you a red lipstick kinda girl? I’m actually a red lipstick virgin!

    3. Do you wear a watch? I did.. then I lost it.. 🙁

    4. What was the most cringe-worthy beauty moment of your teenage years? The “Medusa” style curls… Dear God, what was I thinking?!

    5. Have you ever purchased a beauty product from a vending machine? No. I’ve always wanted to!

    6. Do you like where you live? Hmm.. I like being closer to our families but I don’t like being closer to our families. 🙂

    7. Is there a movie you’ve been wanting to see? I still haven’t seen Black Swan. I’ll probably watch it on demand.

    8. Where would you like to visit? Italy, Greece and, of course, the Phillippines.

    9. What’s one thing you love about yourself? I love my sense of humor. I can always make myself laugh. 🙂

    10. Weekly goals: LAUNDRY, read “Catching Fire”. I’m addicted! I finished “The Hunger Games” in one day!!

  37. Kim says:

    1. Mood: A little tired but VERY happy. We won a raffle yesterday for 2 tix to a Canadiens hockey game on the boys’ b’day. One was crying with happiness (Habs fan), the other with disappointment (not fair HE can’t go too, even though he doesn’t care about either team). Today one of my bffs scored me 2 more tix so we can all go. Love him and am so grateful – and can’t wait to tell the kids!
    2. Are you a red lipstick kinda girl? No. Maybe in a situation where no one knew me. Otherwise I’d feel self-conscious. You know I’m a sweats/sneakers kind of gal! 🙂
    3. Do you wear a watch? Yes, it really bothers me if I forget it, which I’ve done maybe 3 times in my adult life. Like you, not too fancy – a gold and silver, all metal, Citizen Eco Drive. My good dress watch needed to be sent away every time the battery died and I was without a watch for weeks. I got this one so that would never be an issue again.
    4. What was the most cringe-worthy beauty moment of your teenage years? Um, yeah, ditto on the 80s. I’d almost forgotten the side wing action. Thanks for that stroll back down memory lane!
    5. Have you ever purchased a beauty product from a vending machine? No, it’s not really an option here.
    6. Do you like where you live? I really do. Every place has its good and bad points, but I’m really happy here.
    7. Is there a movie you’ve been wanting to see? I guess the next “big” thing for me will be the Hobbit. Though, of course I’ll be interested to see the US version of The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, and the Hunger Games when they’re released.
    8. Where would you like to visit? Hawaii. Someday. 🙂
    9. What’s one thing you love about yourself? I’m blessed. I’m sure I don’t deserve it, but everything comes pretty easily and I have the best family and friends in the world.
    10. Weekly goals: Seriously, seriously step up the workout. I can’t remember a time in the last 15 years when I’ve felt so lazy.

  38. Kayann says:

    1. Mood: Irked (sp?). I accidently pushed the back button!

    2. Are you a red lipstick kinda girl? I’m a red lipstick virgin!

    Mood:
    Pretty good! Got up early to learn how to milk a cow, then came home and took a long nap.
    Are you a red lipstick kinda girl?
    Ohhh yes. My favourites are MAC Ruby Woo and Illamasqua Maneater, but when my lips are too damaged from cold and wind for those ultra-matte textures I love the buxom Big & Healthy lipstick in ‘Barcelona’ for an ultra-hydrating red kick!
    Do you wear a watch?
    I used to wear a pocket watch, but my friend borrowed it to use as a stage prop in a play and never returned it. :/
    What was the most cringe-worthy beauty moment of your teenage years?
    In eight grade I dyed my hair jet black and tried to cut it myself…the results were straight across bangs, blotchy colour, and a cropped bottom right at my chin that made my face look huge. My mother made me live with it as punishment, took about seven months to look even slightly better. At the same time I was discovering make up and wore garrish red lipstick every day with thick black eyeliner on my waterline. The plus side was all the dragqueens at the local LGBT teen club took me in to their fold and instilled in me a love of drag shows and crazy make up. xD
    Have you ever purchased a beauty product from a vending machine?
    Beauty product vending machines? Wuhhhh?? Sounds intriguing!
    Do you like where you live?
    No way. I live in rural new england currently and long to see city lights again!
    Is there a movie you’ve been wanting to see?
    I’ve been wanting to see The Runaways, going to pop down to the movie store later and see if it’s on dvd yet!
    Where would you like to visit?
    I have always wanted to backpack through India and Nepal, buying samosas from street venders!
    What’s one thing you love about yourself?
    I think I have life experiences that bring something different to my small community of people who have lived in the same place all their lives.
    Weekly goals:
    I’m starting school again Wednesday after dropping out for a semester, and I’m hoping I can keep up with the work and maintain a positive outlook!

    6. Do you like where you live?

      • Brian McD says:

        Is it that good? A friend popped by a bit ago and said The Kings Speech was amazing. I need to see it, but Black Swan is also on my list. I’m so behind…I finally saw The Social Network last weekend and mmmm…great screenplay, ok movie. I don’t think its best picture material like everyone is saying.

      • Sandy says:

        No its my first MAC red…. I usually dont buy high end lipsticks but i just couldnt resist when i saw the venomous villians collection heartless and violetta were an ultimate splurge…

  42. laurels says:

    1. Mood: Mixed. Happy to be back at work but missing my husband terribly.
    2. Are you a red lipstick kinda girl? Only when it’s MAC’s Ruby Woo and I’m in a fierce mood.
    3. Do you wear a watch? I used to be a watch girl. I think I’m going to have to start up again because I hate asking people for the time.
    4. What was the most cringe-worthy beauty moment of your teenage years? When I overplucked the front part of one of my eyebrows. Not a good look trying to cover that up with brow pencil.
    5. Have you ever purchased a beauty product from a vending machine? Oh goodness, no.
    6. Do you like where you live? I like it but I just wish it were cooler sometimes.

  43. Kristi says:

    1. Mood:
    Excited! Good friend found out she’s having a baby GIRL today and I’m heading out after work to meet another good friend’s new baby! It’s a good Monday.

    2. Are you a red lipstick kinda girl?
    I’m not a lipstick girl at all. Can’t stand it. I’ve never been able to find that *perfect* shade of lipstick. I think the closest thing to perfect would be Guerlain’s KissKiss Gloss in color 866.

    3. Do you wear a watch?
    I don’t. Wish I did. Then maybe I’d put my smartphone down every once in a while!

    4. What was the most cringe-worthy beauty moment of your teenage years?
    I had a spiral perm in 12th grade. Which was 98-99. Clearly NOT in style back then. I also had it rolled with boomerang rods, and the stylist rolled so tightly my hair broke off. Not awesome. No more spiral perms. Bad.

    5. Have you ever purchased a beauty product from a vending machine?
    I have not but I remember being fascinated by the Sephora machine in Houston’s airport!

    6. Do you like where you live?
    Normally yes, but these subzero temperature days are grating on my very last nerve. I’d move to Hawaii in a second. Pretty sure. 🙂

    7. Is there a movie you’ve been wanting to see?
    I want to see No Strings Attached too. Pretty sure it will be predictable, but maybe it’s worth a Sunday matinee showing with a friend.

    8. Where would you like to visit?
    I would love to go back to Hawaii. I’d like to get to Maui and the Big Island. I’ve only been to Oahu. Which I love love love.

    9. What’s one thing you love about yourself?
    I think I’m pretty open minded. There’s not a lot that shocks me/riles me up. I’m a good person to drop a bomb on because I don’t get all bent out of shape. I take it all in before I comment. 🙂

    10. Weekly goals:
    Have dinner with a good friend, clean the kitchen, spend at least 2 hours of quality time with the hubs, sleep in Saturday morning (thanks to a friend who took my saturday shift!)

  44. Kate & Zena says:

    1. Mood:
    Waiting for the caffeine to kick in.

    2. Are you a red lipstick kinda girl?
    Yes, when I want to be, I definitely find myself in pinks more often than not.

    3. Do you wear a watch?
    Everyday. It’s a security object! I need my watch! Mine’s not a Chanel or anything, but it was expensive for me (it’s a Fossil)!

    4. What was the most cringe-worthy beauty moment of your teenage years?
    Um, what wasn’t? Full coverage foundation applied heavily, eyeliner applied heavily, LOTS OF POWDER, lots of eyeshadow….I had a lot of excess and not enough control. I found control when I was 17, thankfully.

    5. Have you ever purchased a beauty product from a vending machine?
    No.

    6. Do you like where you live?
    No. It’s too cold in winter and too miserable from the humidity in summer and there’s no mountains. I love the ‘burbs, yes, but not my state. Transplant me back to Arizona! Hot in summer and mildly coat (read: 40) in summer with nice, mountain views. A desert with mountains. Yep, just what the doctor ordered.

    7. Is there a movie you’ve been wanting to see?
    Tangled, Tron, the newest Narnia and HP 7: Part 1. I’m waiting very (im)patiently for them to come to DVD since I don’t do the whole cinema thing well.

    8. Where would you like to visit?
    Go back to Europe.

    9. What’s one thing you love about yourself?
    The fact that I can remember exactly where I put something. If it’s not there, I know somebody’s moved it. I’m not so nice when I know someone’s moved something of mine, so don’t try moving something!

    10. Weekly goals:
    Try to be zen that my book hasn’t come yet. Try to be veeeeeeeeeeeeeeeery zen.
    Get root canal on Wednesday. Ew!

    • Karen says:

      Fossil makes some cute watches. I have one with a thick black band and flower embroidery that I love.

      Good luck with the root canal! I hope it goes smoothly.

      • Kate & Zena says:

        Mine’s plain; it’s silver with a blue face. I think it’s a Multifunction Blue Dial watch (mine looks a little different from the site one though); I don’t remember. My version isn’t on the site anymore. It’s basic, it’s not fussy and it goes with everything.

        The root canal doctor that I’m going to has a swively TV thingy so I can watch a movie whilst getting worked on. I don’t wear the headphones (too many noises at once) so I tend to watch a Disney movie that I know the dialogue to. Well, not always. If it’s a cartoon, I can make up my own dialogue. I’m rather good that way. Ha ha ha! I watched An American Tail and made up all the words since I hadn’t seen the movie since I was 8.

  45. Megan says:

    1. Mood: Anxious. A bit stressed. Tired of Cleveland snow…but oo, kitty just climbed into my lap. Doing a bit better now!
    2. Are you a red lipstick kinda girl? No! I know it’s a travesty. I haaaate the texture of lipstick, so I am much more likely to go for a purply-tinted gloss a la NARS Bougainville.
    3. Do you wear a watch? If I did, I would probably be a lot less late.
    4. What was the most cringe-worthy beauty moment of your teenage years? Where do I start? The mushroom haircut? The attempts at eyebrow filling…with a carbon-black pencil? The time I attempted to remove 6 months’ worth of black hair dye solo, and ended up with hair ranging from still-black to rust to tangerine? All noteworthy.
    5. Have you ever purchased a beauty product from a vending machine? There are times when consuming a candy bar has made me a much more beautiful person to be around. So, yes. 🙂
    6. Do you like where you live? Most of the time. Cleveland is really beautiful despite what you hear about it…the winters are a bit too long, and the summers can get a bit too humid, but it’s generally lovely.
    7. Is there a movie you’ve been wanting to see? Black Swan. I have a hard time sitting still and staring at a screen for hours, but I hear that one’s worth it.
    8. Where would you like to visit? Somewhere with a beach like the one I have on my screen saver. Ireland. The moon. Italy, to eat my weight in pasta.
    9. What’s one thing you love about yourself? I don’t know how to dislike someone. There are people I find a bit annoying, but that’s about as far as it goes. I have no idea what it would feel like to not be able to stand someone.
    10. Weekly goals: 1) Laundry done before Friday. 2) Write another newspaper article for the animal shelter I volunteer with. 3) Spend more time with foster kitty living upstairs.

  46. Kelly says:

    2. Are you a red lipstick kinda girl? Oh yes, I’m with you, I love a matte red

    3. Do you wear a watch? Been wearing one every single day since around age 8 or 9. If I am not wearing one I panic, haha. I have at least 6 working ones and 10 dead ones 🙂

    4. What was the most cringe-worthy beauty moment of your teenage years? That would be my perm for my 16th birthday. First and last

    5. Have you ever purchased a beauty product from a vending machine? Nope

    6. Do you like where you live? Yes and no. I am surrounded by hills, protected watershed and walking trails so that’s nice, but I have to drive 20-25 minutes in either direction to get to anywhere decent

    7. Is there a movie you’ve been wanting to see? The Fighter

    8. Where would you like to visit? Italy and eat my way through the country

    9. What’s one thing you love about yourself? Much better at asserting myself than I was in my 20’s

    Hang in there, Karen! You are an amazingly capable and accomplished woman!

    Tired, but good. Had a great weekend.

    2. Are you a red lipstick kinda girl?

    Not red, red, but a more warm wine red works well for me.

    3. Do you wear a watch?

    No. I get tired of changing the battery. I just check the time on my cell phone.

    4. What was the most cringe-worthy beauty moment of your teenage years?

    I went through a rather unfortunate neon-colored eye shadow phase.

    5. Have you ever purchased a beauty product from a vending machine?

    Not that I remember.

    6. Do you like where you live?

    Yes, it’s not too far from a big city but far enough away to be spread out and not so congested.

    7. Is there a movie you’ve been wanting to see?

    I’d like to go see Black Swan

    8. Where would you like to visit?

    Anywhere in Europe.

    9. What’s one thing you love about yourself?

    I get very passionate about things I enjoy.

    10. Weekly goals:

    Job hunting and some general errands. I might color my hair if the spirit moves me.

  48. Advah says:

    1. Mood: happy because Monday is over and I don’t have to be at work until Friday (woop!) but exhausted because today was one of those nightmare days

    2. Are you a red lipstick kinda girl? I do have a red Chanel lipstick I adore, but don’t have many opportunities (or courage!) to wear it. One of my 2011 resolutions. 🙂

    3. Do you wear a watch? Sometimes, yes. A cheap plain golden Urban Outfitters one. I’d rather wear bracelets, but it can be useful when I’m in meetings.

    4. What was the most cringe-worthy beauty moment of your teenage years? Hmm probably thinking my hair looked better LONG (like, really long). It just made my face very long.

    5. Have you ever purchased a beauty product from a vending machine? Nope!

    6. Do you like where you live? I love it. Love the area, love the city. 🙂

    7. Is there a movie you’ve been wanting to see? Still haven’t seen the new Harry Potter!

    8. Where would you like to visit? I’m going to Chicago and Austin in March (no San Fran sadly), and I just-can’t-wait. I’ve been to Austin before, and it’s one of my favourite places on earth. It feels like an oasis.

    9. What’s one thing you love about yourself? I can be very strict about some things, ie if I decide not to speak to one person I’ll never speak to them. It can often be a difficult part of my character to deal with (and a lot of the times I shouldn’t be that stubborn!), but it’s helped me get things done. Guess it goes back and forth between stubborn and determination..

    10. Weekly goals: I’ve done the 30 Days Shred just 10 mins ago! So more of this, eating healthy (jeans still tight since the hols). I’m also taking 3 days off work including 1.5 to do an internship, so I want to be productive, actively learn things and cross things off my to-do list.
    I’m also getting some laser hair removal sessions in a few days, bad for my budget but stupidly it makes me feel in control of things!

    Karen – let’s all motivate each other this week! I’ve great things I want to do but I’m scared I’ll just get lazy half way through; knowing you’ll most likely get more things done than me is pushing me to be efficient so I don’t feel like a bum hah.

  49. Suri says:

    1. Mood: pretty good I must say. I had a relatively calm day.

    2. Are you a red lipstick kinda girl? I love it but I rarely wear it! usually for a special night on the town.

    3. Do you wear a watch? Yup I have 2. A silver Kenneth Cole for when I wear silver and a gold Guess watch for when I wear gold. Yeah I’m weird like that.

    4. What was the most cringe-worthy beauty moment of your teenage years? Ugh I had bangs too. They looked like a big sausage on my head lmao

    5. Have you ever purchased a beauty product from a vending machine? No but I would do it if I had the chance.
    6. Do you like where you live? The neighborhood is ok but I rent and I don’t like my landlord. He’s made it really uncomfortable for my husband and I to be here. I’d like to be out by this Summer.

    7. Is there a movie you’ve been wanting to see? I just saw The Green Hornet and I’m looking forward to some of the action movies this summer.

    8. Where would you like to visit? Malaysia where my dad is from, England and Cali, among many other places.

    Good luck with your projects you will be amazing I am sure 🙂

    2. Are you a red lipstick kinda girl? I really really want to be. But I’ve actually never worn red lipstick out of the house. I can’t get used to the way it looks.

    3. Do you wear a watch? Nope

    4. What was the most cringe-worthy beauty moment of your teenage years? SOOO many to pick from. Well let’s see, there was the mullet in 8th grade (that was not my fault. The woman described how she wanted to cut my hair, I said no, and she did it anyway. It was BAAAAD.) There was also the bowl cut in 6th grade or so on my naturally curly hair. Bowl cut + naturally curly hair = triangle head

    5. Have you ever purchased a beauty product from a vending machine? I don’t think so but I’m not fundamentally against it or anything.

    6. Do you like where you live? I love the town I live in. I would like to live in a bigger house. The four of us are tripping over each other in our townhome yo!

    7. Is there a movie you’ve been wanting to see? That movie Easy A looks kind of funny.

    8. Where would you like to visit? Lots of places! Right now, in the middle of the winter in freezing cold Kansas, I’m going to go for somewhere warm and beachy like Hawaii.

    9. What’s one thing you love about yourself? I love that I am a happy person. I don’t dwell in the negative, I’m not a worrier, and I tend to be upbeat about stuff.

    10. Weekly goals: Every week I try to carve out time to spend one-on-one time with both of my kiddos and my hubby. It doesn’t always happen but it’s on my list every week. I have to get some work done on a website I’m creating, work with some members of my team and get them up speed on some technology we’re now using, and find time to finish knitting the pair of socks I’m currently knitting.

    1. Mood: I’m ok. Seems like a Murphy day.. Everything that can go wrong, is going wrong(but hopefully only in my computers.. They seem to just not want to do ANYTHING right today.)
    2. Are you a red lipstick kinda girl? I’m getting to be one! But I have red hair, so its a bit of a battle finding the right shade.
    3. Do you wear a watch? no. I like the idea of a watch(and for that matter, bracelets), but everytime I try to wear one, my wrists aren’t happy.
    4. What was the most cringe-worthy beauty moment of your teenage years? I went through a lot of no make up stages, as well as just akward bang moments.
    5. Have you ever purchased a beauty product from a vending machine? No I haven’t! I wish!
    6. Do you like where you live? Yes. It gets really cold sometimes, and the snow isn’t great, but I like the people, the attitude of my city, and living near my family.

    3. Do you wear a watch? Not at the moment, need to get a new battery put in!

    4. What was the most cringe-worthy beauty moment of your teenage years? The one that comes to mind first is when I started using a brow pencil…but it was before I started getting my eyebrows done. They’re naturally white-blonde, so you can imagine how weird that looked!

    5. Have you ever purchased a beauty product from a vending machine? Not that I can remember…unless you count tampons! 😉

    6. Do you like where you live? I do, most of the time. I’m in Orange County, and my boy lives in LA, so sometimes I hate it and have to get away for the day/weekend, but for the most part I feel pretty lucky to live here.

    7. Is there a movie you’ve been wanting to see? True Grit – I just can’t seem to get to the theater!

    8. Where would you like to visit? Portland…it’s been calling my name!

  57. lo says:

    1. Mood: Tired. I had classes today, and the afternoon ones always seems to leave me burnt out (even if they’re shorter than some of my earlier ones).
    2. Are you a red lipstick kinda girl? Not really, but I’d like to be. I kinda have to ease into it.
    3. Do you wear a watch? Nope. I do like the look of them, though… I think I’d need a really nice, expensive watch (like a Rolex) to actually commit to wearing one. The idea of all that money sitting in a drawer unused would be my motivation haha.
    4. What was the most cringe-worthy beauty moment of your teenage years? Frosty lilac lipstick.
    5. Have you ever purchased a beauty product from a vending machine? Nope. I’ve never even come across a beauty product vending machine!
    6. Do you like where you live? It’s pretty, so in that respect, yes. But it’s also extremely snobby and superficial (which I’m not in the least), so it definitely spoils things a lot.
    7. Is there a movie you’ve been wanting to see? No. I never have time now.
    8. Where would you like to visit? Melbourne, AU. And I’d love to go back to Seattle, but that’s more of a “moving” type thing instead of just visiting haha.
    9. What’s one thing you love about yourself? I have a really memory. It’s not fail-safe, but I do remember a lot. I’d love to cultivate it into a photographic memory haha.
    10. Weekly goals: STUDY. I have to do well on my first exam on Friday… it’s in College Algebra, which isn’t a hard subject except for the fact that I’m not very good at math and haven’t taken a math class in over 4 years. So I have a lot of re-learning/re-remembering to do… hopefully my good memory will kick in!

  58. steph b says:

    1. Mood: Somber. I came out fine, but there was a round of layoffs at my office today.

    2. Are you a red lipstick kinda girl? Nope. I’m just too pale for red. Makes me feel like my lips are walking into the room before the rest of me.

    3. Do you wear a watch? Oh yeah. I have no sense of time and would be lost without it. Its pretty basic, don’t even know what brand.

    4. What was the most cringe-worthy beauty moment of your teenage years? Had to be the layers of concealer and powder that called more attention to blemishes. But the bright blue, thick bottom liner with no other eye makeup comes in at a close second.

    5. Have you ever purchased a beauty product from a vending machine? Nope.

    6. Do you like where you live? I really do. It would be better if I could be at the beach whenever I felt the need to wiggle my toes in the sand. But I like the city, my friends, the cultural opportunities, the ease of getting other places.

    7. Is there a movie you’ve been wanting to see? Nope.

    8. Where would you like to visit? Where wouldn’t I like to visit? I’d love to travel more often so I could do more focused trips — one week in a small villa on the Amalfi coast vs. feeling like I have to cram all of Italy into a single trip.

    9. What’s one thing you love about yourself? My smartassishness. As long as it isn’t mean spirited, I love a good sassy comment.

    10. Weekly goals: Not let the pall at work drag me too far down and start getting my resume out there just in case.

  59. Rachael says:

    1. Mood: Excited! As of midnight (Ohio time) I’ll be 21!

    2. Are you a red lipstick kinda girl? Not really, but I do wear a plummy-berry look all the time.

    3. Do you wear a watch? No, I have really tiny wrists and no watch will fit without drilling extra holes in the garage with my dad’s tools.

    4. What was the most cringe-worthy beauty moment of your teenage years? Really bleached out hair, like Gwen’s. It totally fried my hair and I completely lost the wave/curl in my hair until recently.

    5. Have you ever purchased a beauty product from a vending machine? No but the one in my dorm at OU had toothpaste and condoms…

    6. Do you like where you live? For the most part. It’s not where I wanna live for the rest of my life but for now it’s pretty good.

    7. Is there a movie you’ve been wanting to see? The last installment of Harry Potter, but I have to wait until the summer.

  60. Lauren says:

    1. Mood: So so so so stressed and nervous. I start working in our onsite lab school in the kindergarten tomorrow. It is practicum (lab) work so it counts as credits for my child development major. I work twice a week and get critiqued by the heads of the child development department. Terrifying…
    2. Are you a red lipstick kinda girl? Oh yes! I may just do a red lip tomorrow to help boost my confidence for my practicum work!
    3. Do you wear a watch? I used to but it fell off one night and I believe it is now a resident of the black hole under my bed…
    4. What was the most cringe-worthy beauty moment of your teenage years? Oh gosh, foundation that was way too dark for me, frosty white eyeshadow, frosty purple eyeshadow, sparkly lipgloss…
    5. Have you ever purchased a beauty product from a vending machine? No, not yet but I probably will at some point!
    6. Do you like where you live? I do not like where my college is. I thought I would like the rural life for college but it is so not for me. Our nearest movie theater is 40 minutes away, the closest Sephora is an hour away! I can’t wait till I graduate, then I am moving back to the Boston area!
    7. Is there a movie you’ve been wanting to see? Blue Valentine looks interesting, I may have to check that one out.
    8. Where would you like to visit? I would love to go back to europe, maybe spend some more time in London.

  63. Jennifer says:

    1. Mood:
    eh, somewhat bored. feeling down, but i’m trying to deal.

    2. Are you a red lipstick kinda girl?
    it depends. i like red lipstick, but i don’t like it to be too bold. i like the sheerer colors.

    3. Do you wear a watch?
    not constantly. i do ocassionally. when i worked for target, i wore a watch all the time.

    4. What was the most cringe-worthy beauty moment of your teenage years?
    i’m still technically a teen, but i used to wear neon eyeshadows over my whole eyelid, both top and bottom! and then i added thick black liquid eyeliner and tons of mascara. i usually used purple and emerald green. the look wasn’t too horrific, and people said i could pull it off, but now that i’ve grown a bit older and have gotten more into makeup, i think it was the biggest beauty mistake ever!

    5. Have you ever purchased a beauty product from a vending machine?
    i don’t think vending machines even give out beauty products anymore. i’m sure i’ve gotten some lip balm or something from one when i was much much younger though.

    6. Do you like where you live?
    eh, it’s alright. it’s beautiful california, so that’s a plus. a couple hours away from the beach, from disneyland, from magic mountain, from LA/hollywood. the city i live in is an oil producing city, so it’s got the worst air quality. other than that and the weather (it’s either too hot or too cold .. there’s rarely any days where the weather is perfect), i do like it here.

    7. Is there a movie you’ve been wanting to see?
    yes! there’s so many actually. right now i have a netflix queue of like 20 movies, and then there’s also many i would like to see that are in theaters currently. no strings attached, true grit, the delimma, and the green hornet are the ones i want to see right now. luckily i work at a movie theater! hooray for free movies 😉

    8. Where would you like to visit?
    oh my gosh, don’t even get me started. haha. i would love to travel europe and the US. although i live here in the US, there is still SO much to see and do here. once i do all that i would like to travel europe and see all the wonders there. and i would love to visit austraila! i really want to go to japan too. in europe i’d love to see italy, greece, and rome. here in the US i really really want to go to new york and new orleans! 🙂

    9. What’s one thing you love about yourself?
    my ability to help people. there has never been a time where i was at a loss of advice for a friend. i have always been able to reach out to people and help them when they feel like they are completely alone. i have always been the friend people turn to, and i have always been their shoulder to cry on. it makes me feel wonderful knowing i can be that person for them, knowing that i can help them with some kind words or some advice.

    10. Weekly goals:
    Hm. Get all my homework finished for school, stop eating so much fast food (while that’s not completely a weekly goal, i know i need to take it one week/day at a time!), get through watching my shows (i skimp during the week so i have to catch up online), try to be happier and to not let my current stressful situations get me down as much.

    2. Are you a red lipstick kinda girl? Yes! I don’t wear it often, but it is my favorite.

    4. What was the most cringe-worthy beauty moment of your teenage years? Braces. And then braces again. Also, big hair (unintentionally).
    5. Have you ever purchased a beauty product from a vending machine? I don’t think I’ve ever even encountered a beauty product in a vending machine.

    2. Are you a red lipstick kinda girl? Always. Anything that’s considered a brick red/ brownish red/ slightly plummy red is definitely my color. Though I’m going through a phase right now with red lip gloss…

    8. Where would you like to visit? Right now I’m planning an overseas trip – it’s one of those “if I don’t go, I’m gonna DIE” deals, since I can’t wait to get away right now. If all goes to plan, it’s going to be a cold May for me… and that’s all I’ll say about it.

    9. What’s one thing you love about yourself? My optimism.

    10. Weekly goals: Stop freaking out over anything grade-related for my students. Start taking more long walks to clear my head. Laugh in the face of adversity.

    2. Are you a red lipstick kinda girl?
    I’m not really a lipstick kind of girl at all. I am one of those annoying people who have a full face of make-up then wear lip balm. Something I’m hoping to change in the future – but I don’t think I’d suit red lips!

    3. Do you wear a watch?
    No, I have OCD and I don’t want to embarrass myself wearing two.

    4. What was the most cringe-worthy beauty moment of your teenage years?

    (I do know it’s not Monday, but hey, I love these polls :D)

    1. mood: way too hyper 😀
    2. Are you a red lipstick kinda girl? I’m more of a neutral/light lipstick kinda girl, although I do like certain shades of red… just not blood red, that looks awful on me.
    3. Do you wear a watch? No, I don’t. I know I should, but I’d rather wear bracelets (on the left side, on my right arm, I don’t wear anything, because all kinds of things disturb me whilst writing :D)
    4. What was the most cringe-worthy beauty moment of your teenage years? Well, my mum wasn’t letting me wear what I wanted for some years (I guess I was about 13 or 14 when I stood up for my taste), and she was always caring about comfort and saving money, so I was wearing loose and boyish thermo sweaters and stuff like that for the first years of my teenage life, that was horrible. After I chose my clothes for myself, I don’t really remember too cringe-worthy moments… eept for when applied tinted lipbalm/chapstick without a mirror, and it went around my lips :D.
    5. Have you ever purchased a beauty product from a vending machine? I haven’t even seen a vending machine with beauty products. I would try, definitely :D.
    6. Do you like where you live? Apart from some things, yes… well, I wouldn’t mind if the environment wasn’t so dangerous and shady… it’s not the most elite place, you see… but I like that I’m in the city and really near to a public transport center, and everything I need is really close.
    7. Is there a movie you’ve been wanting to see? Black Swan.
    8. Where would you like to visit? Ohhhhhhh… it’s a neverending list… Paris (but other French cities, too), Mexico, Krakow, Prague, any Scandinavic countries, Salzburg, New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, London, India, Tokyo…
