Makeup and Beauty Blog Monday Poll, July 18

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. 177. I’ve always enjoyed reading your answers in the comments, and I hope you enjoy reading mine.
  1. Mood:
  2. Pretty good, but it was touch and go there until I cranked out an “At least…” list. It’s a trick I use to improve my outlook and snap myself out of funks, like those that seem to accompany many Monday mornings.

    What I do is give myself 10 minutes to finish as many sentences as I can that start with the words, “At least…” like, “At least my cat is only a partial psycho, and not a total and complete psycho bent on making my life a living hell,” and, “At least I have opposable thumbs.”

    Usually helps. :)

  3. Speaking of which, “At least…”
  4. At least I’m not on a reality TV show and having Orange County housewives throw drinks in my face. At least I’m not in a hot tub with Flava Flav and a bunch of hoochies wearing butt floss. At least my teeth aren’t shaped like vampire fangs. At least I have my health.

  5. Hoops or studs?
  6. Studs for work; hoops for play.

  7. Snakeskin prints: yea or nay?
  8. Yea, but only on shoes and bags (and not both at the same time).

  9. When was the last time you wore teal eyeshadow?
  10. Last week! It’s one of my current favorite colors to play with.

  11. One day I’m going to…
  12. Figure it all out. Everything. But until then, I’m just gonna do my best and try to enjoy being a work in progress.

  13. Your favorite product to conceal pimples (but not necessarily under-eye circles)?
  14. I haven’t found one I’m really happy with for pimples. Got any recs?

  15. Today’s accessories?
  16. My wedding ring, a pair of bow-shaped Kate Spade studs and Tiffany silver bangles.

  17. Three things I love about myself:
  18. 1) That I don’t take myself (“Allow myself to introduce…myself.” -Austin Powers) too seriously, 2) that I’m sensitive, and 3) my blueberry/peach cobbler (I make a mean one, boo!).

  19. Weekly goals:
  20. Not much. Just to stay positive and focused on good thoughts. Oh, and to make an appointment to get my hair did. It’s the roots… They’re taking over, and it’s not pretty.

So…please, please tell me you watched the new True Blood last night because I’m dying to dish! I promise, no spoilers (except in the comments, where it’s fair game), but I think it’s safe to mention that I was quite pleased with the amount of shirtless-ness in the episode. Yes, that was most appreciated. :D

In music news, I’ve been listening to Pat Benetar’s (or Pat Nebetar, for the Beavis and Butthead fans among us) Love Is a Battlefield for two straight days, and I WILL NOT BE SATISFIED until it’s stuck in your head, too.

Now, on to the Monday Poll (Love Is a Battlefield)!

        • Nina says:

          omg yeah. Marnie/Marny — irritating!

          Debbie is certifiably insane. i have a feeling she will go B.A.N.A.N.A.S pretty soon!

          ps Jason & Jessica – cute or not? :D

          • Karen says:

            Wow, I didn’t even really think of Jason and Jessica, but after that last scene, I can see it happening.

            I wonder when he’s gonna turn into a were-panther… btw, kind of random, but I keep calling Tabs the “Ghost Tabby,” haha!

          • Nina says:

            Ghost Tabby FTW! :D

            and im so sad abt Pam. how can i not root for a hot, makeup loving, fashionista of a vamp? :/

          • Karen says:

            Oh, I know. Pam is one of my favorites (she wears the best outfits). I was NOT happy about that scene. :(

            Did you catch Mona from Who’s the Boss?

          • Nina says:

            i hope Pam goes back to her own gorgeous self soon!

    • Karen says:

      I volunteer to be your official taster once you get into pastry school. :) Every student needs a guinea pig…

      • Nina says:

        it seems like pastry school is beckoning me! the Art Institute moved from its old location to a building thats pretty close to our house!

        • Karen says:

          That’s a sign! Maybe you can start with one class? Do they have night courses?

          • Nina says:

            they have a diploma and an associates program. im thinking of the diploma program, mostly bec of the time frame and the cost.

            we shall see. :-)

          • Karen says:

            That’s great. I think it’s always important to keep moving toward a goal, you know?

            I also think it would be awesome if you took a class solely devoted to cupcakes. :D

          • Nina says:

            there are some short term courses around here and i remember reading one about cupcakes!

      Have you ever noticed that you can tell what stage Star Trek: TNG is in by Ryker’s uniform? In the earlier seasons when he’s slim and trim he wears a one-piece, but in the later seasons he wears a two piece with an elastic waistband!

  6. Saffron says:

    That song reminds me of karaoke and legwarmers and makes my day all the brighter.

    1. Mood:
    Manic and feline – I blame the sudden rush of vitamin D to my system and I’m glad that I don’t know anyone sexy and/or trouble cause I’d likely end up fired and/or in prison with the way I’d relate to that set of stimuli at the moment.

    2. At least…
    I’m old enough to know better, even the data argues to the contrary.

    3. Hoops or studs?
    I wore a set of magenta titanium hoops permanently until my stroke (they were piercing studio and not normal small post earrings) – I had to take them out for all the brain scans and never put them back.

    4. Snakeskin prints: yea or nay?
    Oh hell yes – I like over the top stuff, at least on people who unlike me, don’t look ridiculous in it.

    5. When was the last time you wore teal eyeshadow?
    Yesterday in the corners of a brown smokey eye and blue glitter. WHY THE HELL NOT?!

    6. One day I’m going to….
    Command Mars from my gold plated space station, while wearing a sequined evening gown and batting my eyes at my hot alien assassin prisoner. Or so I tell myself.

    7. Your favorite product to conceal pimples?
    Whatever I have on hand, usually bobbi brown concealor cause it’s a very good match for me, even tho the wear isn’t the best. If you’re gonna smash a lot of product onto the middle of your face, match is important.

    8. Today’s accessories?
    I’m not an accessorizor, so you know, sandals, a hot pink snakeskin belt, a ratty backpack, and Bertrand Russel, who looks good with everything.

    9. Three things I love about myself:
    This is a difficult question, it definitely shines a light on the fact that I think of myself much more in terms of my flaws. My empathy, my drive, and my willingness to be my own damn self even if that means having to admit to being a huge nerd.

    10. Weekly goals:
    Focus more on work, I have not been captain productive. Keep up with the diet, I’ve got a long way to go but it’s getting to be a habit now. Do a small painting every day.

    3. Hoops or studs? Hoops
    4. Snakeskin prints: yea or nay? Yah for shoes, bag nay at least for me for everything else
    5. When was the last time you wore teal eyeshadow? I have never worn teal eyeshadow unfort.
    6. One day I’m going to….go on safari in kenya. i will do it!
    7. Your favorite product to conceal pimples? I don’t have any. The more I try to conceal it the more it becomes obvious on me
    8. Today’s accessories? my eyeglasses. they make me look intelligent…haha
    9. Three things I love about myself: my sense of humor, my ability to move forward despite good or bad situations, my friends and family

    2. Speaking of which, “At least…”
    At least I have a job I like. At least I have two cute kitties to greet me at home. At least I have air conditioning in this 90+ degree weather!

    3. Hoops or studs?
    Both.

    4. Snakeskin prints: yea or nay?
    Yea, but in small amounts.

    5. When was the last time you wore teal eyeshadow?
    I don’t think I’ve ever worn teal. I should try to remedy that b/c it’s such a pretty color!

    6. One day I’m going to…

    Happy Monday! I haven’t watched True Blood yet, so I’m not going to read any comments today. Can’t wait to see it!

  12. Melissa says:

    1. Mood: Pretty happy. Just had an fruit bar and feeling good that I didn’t just eat my weight in chocolate after lunch.
    2. At least…I’m in an air conditioned building. HOT DAMN it’s 104 heat index in S. Texas today!
    3. Hoops or studs? Both, depends on my mood.
    4. Snakeskin prints: yea or nay? Funny you ask, I have a pair of wedges with a snakeskin print on the side (it’s cute really, not ridiculous)
    5. When was the last time you wore teal eyeshadow? Today! (but not like IN YO FACE, just subtle)
    6. One day I’m going to….go to Zumba with my tummy exposed due to my abs finally looking like Shakira’s :-)
    7. Your favorite product to conceal pimples? Nothing really works, seriously. Pimples hurt and they even look bad concealed. I did find a new treatment that actually attacks them pretty quick….and it’s only $1. ELF cosmetics Zit Zapper.
    8. Today’s accessories? wedding ring, gold hoop earrings.
    9. Three things I love about myself: I can alway seem to make people laugh; I’m a damn good (self-taught) cake decorator; when I want to learn about something – I absorb myself in it. I’m a good researcher (which is why I thought I would be a good paralegal – but didn’t like it). School is never wasted though.
    10. Weekly goals: Organize my nailpolish! Drink more water, and find a pair of summer dress pants for the office that AREN’T CAPRI PANTS!! (*Dear Fashion Industry, I’m 5’3 and capri pants just make me look shorter. WTF? Lose this fashion trend please. Love, Short Peeps)

    So….hubby fell asleep and I finished True Blood by myself. Can we talk about how there is no way I could just ‘hug” Alcide. A topless (at least) picture of him should be hanging in every gym in America with a sign that says “Yes guys, this is what we want” UHHH…..I don’t smoke but I needed a cigarette when he stripped down. I wouldn’t turn away either Sookie!!! Don’t be ashamed girl!!!
    Uhh….and Bill’s evening visit with his lawyer friend was….um…revealing. Eh. Nice one True Blood!

  13. Solangel says:

    1. Mood: Hungry for some Panera Bread :O But mostly relaxed :)
    2. At least…at least my whole family is alive and well, even if we don’t get along most of the time.

    4. Snakeskin prints: yea or nay? Naaaaay
    5. When was the last time you wore teal eyeshadow? Um wow, never! But I really do feel like buying a drugstore one to see how the color will work on me…
    6. One day I’m going to… realize that hard work *does* amount to something.
    7. Your favorite product to conceal pimples? None, as I luckily don’t get too many pimples. When I do, I pop em…bad habits die hard :(
    8. Today’s accessories? None. Lazy day :D
    9. Three things I love about myself: Ok this one’s difficult, there’s not much I love or even like about myself, cough cough…1) my vanilla cupcakes, 2) my love for my kitty Yeyo, the only one who has really stolen my heart!, and 3), my hair…today :D
    10. Weekly goals: Get some new clothes for the semester and try not to make a mess in my sister’s house.

    OK TRUE BLOOD TIME: Just how hot was that episode? And what is that witch’s deal with vampires? As far as we’ve seen, she was killed by humans, not vampires. Hate her for doing that to Pam’s beautiful face >_< I also feel so so bad for Jason…let's just hope he didn't get any diseases from those hicks :/

    • Karen says:

      I certainly was very fond of the lack of shirts, LOL!

      So, I take it the witch either knows the vamps or maybe she’s got a serious chip on her shoulder? I love, LOVE Pam, and was pretty cranky about that scene, too.

      Also, did you catch it when that one lady said that Jason was better than her “brother husband”?!? ZOMG!

  14. gio says:

    1. Mood: ok

    2. At least… I am healthy.

    3. Hoops or studs? hoops

    4. Snakeskin prints: yea or nay? nay

    6. One day I’m going to… travel the world.

  15. Kim says:

    1. Mood: It’s Monday, so that means TIRED! :)
    2. At least… OMG, at least I don’t snort when reading every line you write… only about 80%. At least I’m not orange and on TV (Sorry, Suze Orman, just saw ya while flipping through the other night). At least we have air conditioning in the office since it’s like the Serengeti outside. :)
    3. Hoops or studs? Only studs and only diamond. And I only have one pair. HAHA!
    4. Snakeskin prints: yea or nay? Nay for me; heaven forbid I wear a print!
    5. When was the last time you wore teal eyeshadow? 1989ish? :)
    6. One day I’m going to…. be less tired and have more patience.
    7. Your favorite product to conceal pimples? I usually just dab on a bit of loose powder and hope for the best.
    8. Today’s accessories? The usual: engagement ring/wedding band (Tiffany); watch (Citizen EcoDrive), diamond studs.
    9. Three things I love about myself: Just 3? No way; couldn’t possibly limit it to just three. :) How about this? I love everything except these 3 things: I’m too impatient, I am only ambitious in spurts and I like to eat and drink a bit too much.
    10. Weekly goals: Recover from last week. What a doozy! The boys had a blast at hockey camp; our pool is up and running and the Hubs will be home tomorrow (after being gone for almost 2 weeks). Yay!

    I liked last night’s TB, too! I think about 50 more minutes of Eric would have made it a bit better. hee hee! I might take back what I said about Marney – I think the new spell-spitting evil witch taking over her body could be an interesting addition. And I was definitely laughing at Pam’s rant. She’s just such a b*tch. I like her, but didn’t mind her being knocked down a couple of pegs. Have to keep these vamps on their toes. Of course, my first thought was “thank goodness Eric wasn’t there; I wouldn’t want to see his pretty face deformed!”. Sad. :)

  16. Melissa says:

    6. One day I’m going to… Visit Spain, hopefully sooner rather than later but I will get there

    4. Nay, it just screams old lady to me.
    5. It has been too long since I have worn teal eyeshadow..putting that on my makeup to do list.

    10. Oooo to get in at least 3 exercise sessions, to stick to my diet 100%…to clean up a little area each day…(If I keep on this track in a few years I could audition for Hoarders)

    TGIM! And I can talk about True Blood with some fellow followers! :) Sookie makes me so mad! I don’t know how she can be so angry and afraid of Eric. In the past he has done some wrong, but really, he has never intentionally hurt her or tried to cause her pain..I feel like the writers are going to make it happen between them but then take it away when he gets his memory back or something..bittersweet.
    How is Eric connected to the thing with Marnie/old witch lady? Eric said before when he was talking to Sookie about what happened that “it was HER and it wasn’t HER,”…but she was killed by humans? Also what is up with that creepy doll?

    • Karen says:

      Here, here on it not being winter.

      I’ll have to look into some Select Coverup next time I hit up the MAC store. Have you tried the Pro Longwear Concealer yet? It’s the bomb.com for dark circles.

      • Allison says:

        I haven’t tried it yet, but I will! I have to place a MAC order today. It’s too dangerous for me to go into a store, because given my profession, I feel that I can justify buying everything. I somehow have more control when I purchase online…

        Have a good weekend!

  31. Shannon says:

    1. Mood:

    my glasses & my wedding ring. Pretty simple!
    9. Three things I love about myself:
    1) I smile easily, 2) I love that I like to do different things with my hair, 3) I love that I love to learn.

    6. One day I’m going to…bare my stomach in Zumba class after my abs catch up to Shakira’s!
    7. Your favorite product to conceal pimples? None. I don’t think any pimple is ever really concealed. I think trying to cover them makes them look worse. I have found a new treatment that I like though. ELF Cosmetics $1 Zit Zapper :-) Smells like camphor and medicine

    9. Three things I love about myself: My determination, my sense of organization, and

    1. Mood: A bit anxious but I’m feeling a lot more like myself. I had a pretty discouraging moment last Thursday but after seeing the new Harry Potter movie and realizing that my friends and family are there for me no matter what… well, it made me feel a whole lot better :)

    2. At least…I have a fan in my apartment because my complex doesn’t have AC :P

    3. Hoops or studs? I used to be more of a studs girl but I am finding the appeal in hoops. I have a double lobe and cartilage piercing on my right ear and think it would be cool to have all hoops in them (I just have one lobe piercing in my left ear). My right ear piercings were my “I’m in college and I’m awesome” sort of declaration XP I’m actually really shy and conservative X)

    4. Snakeskin prints: yea or nay? Sure! Snakeskin shoes are pretty awesome but I’m still really shy when it comes to bold prints X)

    5. When was the last time you wore teal eyeshadow? I wore MAC Surf USA to a Hawaiian themed birthday party last week!

    6. One day I’m going to… travel around Asia (Japan, Korea, China, Philippines, Vietnam, etc.) I haven’t been able to travel much and I am in love with Asian culture (with a, of course, biased love of the Filipino culture :P)

    7. Your favorite product to conceal pimples? I use Bare Escentual’s Multi-Tasking Powder in Honey Bisque (I think that’s what it’s called) to tone down pimples. It works pretty well for me but I love trying to find new concealer products!

    9. Three things I love about myself: a) My compassion b) My loyalty to friends and family c) My sheer determination

    10. Weekly goals: Finally get started on my PharmCAS personal statement! XD I love writing like crazy but it’s so hard to just sit down and write a personal statement! I technically did have a midterm last week and my class has been really reading intensive up till now but I don’t have much more excuses for procrastination! I will sit myself down with a Starbucks treat and type away!

      Hi Suri,

      Amen to all of your “at leasts.”

      Also, what meals are you making this week? Are you a meal planner or do you just wing it? I’m not a good enough cook to improvise so I have to plan everything out beforehand.

  39. Suri says:

    Oh yeah True Blood was yumtastic last night. Eric, Jason and Alcide shirtless? Swoon.

  40. Christina says:

    (I thought this went through before… XD)

    1. Mood: A bit anxious but I’m feeling a lot more like myself. I had a pretty discouraging moment last Thursday but after seeing the new Harry Potter movie and realizing that my friends and family are there for me no matter what… well, it made me feel a whole lot better :)

    2. At least…I have a fan in my apartment because my complex doesn’t have AC :P

    3. Hoops or studs? I used to be more of a studs girl but I am finding the appeal in hoops. I have a double lobe and cartilage piercing on my right ear and think it would be cool to have all hoops in them (I just have one lobe piercing in my left ear). My right ear piercings were my “I’m in college and I’m awesome” sort of declaration XP I’m actually really shy and conservative X)

    4. Snakeskin prints: yea or nay? Sure! Snakeskin shoes are pretty awesome but I’m still really shy when it comes to bold prints X)

    5. When was the last time you wore teal eyeshadow? I wore MAC Surf USA to a Hawaiian themed birthday party last week! I decided to have fun with the Surf, Baby collection :D Everyone complimented me on the make-up X3 (My make-up look was totally inspired by all your posts on the collection, Karen! :D)

    6. One day I’m going to… travel around Asia (Japan, Korea, China, Philippines, Vietnam, etc.) I haven’t been able to travel much and I am in love with Asian culture (with a, of course, biased love of the Filipino culture :P)

  41. Kate & Zena says:

    Tired and hot. We’re having a heat wave here! It’s 91 here, but it feels like 98 with the humidity! I’m going to die!

    3. Hoops or studs?
    Studs.

    5. When was the last time you wore teal eyeshadow?
    A month ago.

    6. One day I’m going to…
    Go back to Bamberg, Germany, where I was born. Did you know it’s only the walled city in Germany (and pretty much the rest of Europe) that escaped bombing in the World Wars? There were firefights that went over Bamberg and with Bamberg in the middle, but Bamberg only has a few tiny bullet holes saying, “Hey, I was there! See?” Bamberg is pretty interesting as it has a much, much, much MUCH darker side too. Much worse than I think True Blood can ever think up of.

    7. Your favorite product to conceal pimples?
    I don’t conceal them. I let get as much air as possible!

    8. Today’s accessories?
    Studs so far. But knowing me, my watch is coming with me!

      Hey, at least it’s not cold!

      • Kate & Zena says:

        Karen,

        I don’t know. I’m not sure whether I want the cold or the heat. It’s really the humidity that’s killing it all! It’s like breathing sticky paper here!

        P.S. Apparently, my e-mail has been hacked. If you get any e-mails from me with weird links that don’t say “Hi, Karen,” first and have my name signed (or just say “Re:” in the subject line), just delete them. I’m a bit proper with my letter writing! I’m working on changing my password and everything, but I kinda locked myself from changing my password from being a bit upset. Grrrrrr. I’ve had that e-mail for over 10 years and it’s never been hacked so it’s kind of upsetting!

      PS – True Blood

      I have loved Eric since the show first started and I am still loving him. He is so freaking cute. Was never into Bill and really not liking him at all this season, although the hair is better.

      I would love to see Jason and Jessica together. They’d be adorable together.

      Alcide has definitely got the hottest body on that show. That man is pure sex appeal and gorgeousness.

      I agree with Marnie being annoying and I hope Pam heals up soon. I love her. She’s so funny.
