Makeup and Beauty Blog Monday Poll, July 13

Published in: Just For Fun

071309-monday-poll

  1. Mood:
  2. Relaxed and optimistic.

  3. Describe yourself in five words:
  4. Creative, funny, sensitive, fickle, fun.

  5. What did you do last weekend?
  6. Apart from the regular boring life stuff like groceries, cleaning and laundry, I watched Public Enemies (maybe wait for the DVD) and started reading Living Dead in Dallas by Charlaine Harris, the second book in the Sookie Stackhouse series. Oh! El Hub and I went house hunting yesterday and found a potential place, a condo in a town called Novato. I’m crossing my fingers and hoping it works out.

  7. Do you ever permanently “borrow” magazines from the gym or doctor’s office?
  8. I’m sooo guilty of this! I totally “borrow” magazines from the gym. I don’t really feel bad about doing it, though, because I donate magazines back all the time.

  9. Eyes/lips/cheeks:
  10. Nothing yet because I woke up late this morning. I’ll probably end up doing a look with some bits from MAC Colour Craft or Chanel Venice.

  11. When was the last time you went window shopping for makeup?
  12. Yesterday. I popped by the Macy’s Chanel counter in Corte Madera (about 10 minutes north of San Francisco) to pick up an Eye Gloss and to check out some brushes. By the way, if you’re going to be in the Bay Area this coming weekend, the Corte Madera Macy’s is hosting a Chanel Master Class on July 18th. The first class starts at 11 a.m. and second at 3 p.m., and it’s free to attend. For full deets, call (415) 927-3333 (extension 2362) and ask for Masooma. Don’t forget to tell her I referred you!

  13. Who’s the first person you call when you’re upset?
  14. El Hub.

  15. What’s your favorite way to relax?
  16. Going for a long run with lots of good music pumping through my iPod or curling up on the couch with a good book.

  17. Outfit:
  18. Khaki green sun dress, tan linen blazer and brown wedge sandals.

  19. Weekly goals:
  20. Do visualization exercises, run at least four times, start going for walks during the day.

I just finished guzzling my first cup of green tea (with honey, yum!), and I’m getting ready to go out for a quick 10 minute walk break. I haven’t been very good about giving myself breaks during the work day, so I figure there’s no time like the present to start a new, good habit.



How’s your Monday been so far? Before things start picking up on your end, let me know what’s going on. Just copy the empty list below, and paste it with your answers in the comments. I can’t wait to hear from you. :)

  8. well since i buy so many private lessons (200 hours a year) groups and supervised practice (aka friday dance party) is free for me. the dances change from week to week, this week is slow foxtrot and the samba… will be going to the silver level (yes there are diploma levels in ballroom dancing, bronze, silver, and you guessed it, gold) and above, plus a beginner class to learn the men’s steps as well as technique & styling classes.

    since i compete, i don’t usually bother with the diploma stuff except 2-3 months before the annual exams, which is september this year. i just pass them in case i want to teach later!

    Mood:
    Still a bit tired. I just woke up.

    Describe yourself in five words:
    Sensitive, stubborn, shy, polite and picky

    What did you do last weekend?
    Let’s see, I walked Zena, slept with Zena, woke up because Zena was digging her back paws into my ribs, played with Zena, walked Zena and Ally together, went to Target for more socks, tranquilized Zena at 3:48 AM due to a freak thunderstorm, yelled at my little brother for waking me up at 5:17 IN THE MORNING because he was playing his guitar (light sleeper here) and couldn’t fall back asleep for another two hours, went a little stir crazy as I’m out of books to read, frolicked in the sunshine, crocheted a few more rows of Zena’s new blanket, surfed etsy….in other words, pretty normal weekend.

    Do you ever permanently “borrow” magazines from the gym or doctor’s office?
    Yes, particularly if it’s a Better Homes & Gardens magazine. Love the interior design stuff in there.

    Eyes/lips/cheeks:
    None as I’m still waiting for my morning Coke to take effect.

    When was the last time you went window shopping for makeup?
    Uh, yesterday, except it was more “Sephora Internet Shopping.”

    Who is the first person you call when you’re upset?
    I call somebody when I’m upset? I just go to my mommy and Zena!

    What’s your favorite way to relax?
    Singing, reading, listening to Adiemus, watch movies, crochet, do something crafty. nap, walk or pet Zena, I don’t have a favorite really.

    Pajamas, obviously.

    Weekly goals:
    See the dentist on Wednesday (ugh), see the psychiatrist Thursday (double ugh), walk Zena daily, walk Zena and BFF Ally possibly, repair my favorite black fall/spring waist trench coat (it’s missing a button. I have an order of 10 of said buttons coming to my house sometime this week), make an appointment with my college counselor for classes, learn to stop peeling off my nail polish, get to bed before 4 am. Those last two cannot be good habits.

    Wow, I guess I have a really long to-do list this week. I didn’t think it would be that long.

    I am glad that you found something in Novato. That’s my hometown so if you have any questions about the area let me know. I lived there for about 17 years. Actually, my mom and sister still live there. it is a great town for couples who want to raise children there or to retire. There really isn’t much for teenagers & young adults to do there. They recently renovated Grant Street and there are now a lot of cute shops & restaurants.
