Makeup and Beauty Blog Monday Poll, June 1

Published in: Just For Fun

  1. Mood:
  2. A little frazzled and disheveled. I’m trying to juggle a couple of freelance projects along with house hunting so I’m doing ten things at once and feeling overwhelmed.

  3. What was one thing that made you happy this weekend?
  4. Going to the movies to watch Drag Me to Hell on Friday night. I love how a good flick allows me to get lost in the story and check out of reality for a few hours.

  5. Outfit and shoes:
  6. Dark jeans, white t-shirt, red hoodie, black Locals flip-flops.

  7. Current lipstick or lipgloss crush?
  8. NARS Supervixen! I’ve been wearing it 24/7 for the last three days.

  9. What are your nicknames?
  10. Bratasaur, Kate, Katie, Karonie, K-Money, Abs…

  11. Song that always tugs at your heart?
  12. I have a few: Blackbird (The Beatles), End of the Innocence (Don Henley) and A Change is Gonna Come (Sam Cooke).

  13. How do you feel about 80s fashion?
  14. There are some things I like, but overall I’m not too crazy about that decade of fashion since I lived through it the first time around and have the awful pictures to prove it. If acid washed jeans, chunky shoulder pads and big hair with side wings come back in style I might just die…

  15. Favorite movie?
  16. The Sound of Music.

  17. Weekly goals:
  18. Go to bed early, continue with my visualization exercises (hey, if it’s good enough for Olympic Athletes…), get back into the habit of running, call up a few friends who I haven’t spoken to in a while.

Heya, ladies. How’s your Monday so far? Mine started off kinda rough — I got sucked into a black hole of admin tasks all morning, but now I’m slowly starting to crawl out so things are looking up.

    Mood:
    So tired! Zena went a bit batty last night during the thunderstorm.

    What was one thing that made you happy this weekend?
    Zena gave me a face wash. I wonder if her face-washes help keep my skin clear. Hmmmmmm. Also, I finally got to order all that nail polish. We had to delay it for two weeks! The shipping is a bitch though!

    Outfit and shoes:
    Slippers and pajamas.

    Current lipstick or lipgloss crush?
    None at the moment. My brain isn’t quite working yet.

    What are your nicknames?
    Kate (used rarely), Katie, Grant by certain teachers as they like calling me by my last name. I allow nothing else. You have to earn the right to call me Kate, unless there’s more than one Katie. I’m picky.

    Song that always tugs at your heart?
    “My Heart Will GO On.” It’s cheesy, yes, but that song was the song of 1998-1999 and that’s the year my dad went to Panmunjom for a year. It was a hard year and I cried every single time I heard it.

    How do you feel about 80s fashion?
    Berk (French for yuck). I grew up during the 90s (I’m a wee 20-year-old) and that decade was pretty bad too although I do like leggings (not stirrups, leggings. Stirrups bring back memories of my rigorous PT regimen).

    Oh God, there’s too many. Wall-E, Monsters Inc., Pride & Prejudice (the one with Keira Knightley), King Arthur, Atonement, Breakfast at Tiffany’s, Roman Holiday, Sleeping Beauty, 101 Dalmatians (both live-action and cartoon), Disney Classics, Pan’s Labyrinth, Funny Face, Sabrina (Audrey Hepburn version, thank you), Ratatouille, the list goes on…

    How do you feel about 80s fashion? So-so. It was funky and colorful but for the most part I feel people in the 80s didn’t really dress the way 80′s fashion is hyped up to be. There’s a definitely many things that became popular from that decade I absolutely LOVE, but as a cohesive style decade it fizzles for me.
    Favorite movie? Ferris Bueller’s Day Off
    Weekly goals: Get through work!! Don’t take the angry calls too personally, study up about everything I learned in training and what I’ve been learning on the phones for the past few days to help me get through calls faster.

    • Karen says:

      Hi Stephie,

      I used to work a phone job years ago (I did sales and telemarketing), and even though it had its ups and downs I learned a lot of good skills from it. Hopefully you’ll be able to gain some really great skills that will help you in the future. :)

      Oh — and a paycheck is always good. Holla, indeed!

  39. Gracie says:

    Mood: tired….but happy :)
    What is one good thing that happened this weekend (or made you happy or whatever)?
    Spending time w/ one of my good friends and going shopping

    Outfit and shoes: well, right now I’m currently wearing pjs, but today I was wearing a babydoll tank top that’s blue and brown checkered sorta, some pin striped shorts, navy and white, and some super cute new strappy silver sandals I got on Sunday.

    Current lipstick or lipgloss crush:
    Hmm, I’m kinda digging the NYX frosted flakes lipstick and NYX kiss lipgloss paired together. It gives the pink lipgloss som cool iradecince or however you spell that.

    nicknames?
    Um well my real name is Grace, but I go by Gracie if that counts

    Any songs that tug your heart?
    I’m crazy for this girl by lifehouse, almost lover by a fine frenzy, and ashes and wine by a fine frenzy

    80′s fashion:
    Well I wasn’t born in the 80′s so I wouldn’t know personally, but from what I’ve seen I would never want to live in the 80′s. I like 80′s inspired pieces, but not straight up shoulder pads and waist high flood water acid wash jeans.

    Favorite movie?

    Dirty dancing, spirited away, taken, wanted, ect…there are too many I love to remember them all!

  40. Gracie says:

    Oh and weekly goals are:
    Enjoying the last full week of school (HELL YEAH!!!), stop procrastinating, and pass all my tests this week :)

  42. Shana T says:

    Hi Karen!
    Mood: Tired, it’s actually Tuesday night here and it was stinking hot today!!

    What was one thing that made you happy this weekend? I went to dinner with my hubby and then we went to see Night at the Museum 2. I thought it was really funny, I pretty much laughed through the whole thing.

    Outfit and shoes: Right now bare-foot, and wearing a teal mini dress over navy blue shorts.

    Current lipstick or lipgloss crush? Hmmmmm… I’ve been wearing a random peachy lipgloss that I found in my drawer. I honestly don’t know the brand because the label is worn off.

    What are your nicknames? Shanabanana, Ducky, Gozui, Stix..

    Song that always tugs at your heart? Lightning Crashes by Live

    How do you feel about 80s fashion? NASTY! The only thing I like from that era are the rubber bracelets that all the punk girls wore! I was pretty young in the 80′s.

    Favorite movie? An obscure little known Australian movie called Strictly Ballroom. It’s the only movie that I’ve watched through once and then watched again directly after.

    Weekly goals: Exercise, finish first draft of script for my 6th grade class’s play, buy Korean money now while it’s cheap for our Korea trip in August.

    • Karen says:

      Hi Shana T,

      I had a big stack of those rubber bracelets in the 80s. Mine were colorful, although I really wanted black ones just like Madonna’s.

      What’s your class’s play about? Are you almost done with the first draft (that’s usually the hardest)?

  43. Rachel says:

    Mood: A little tired, some pain/sore
    What was one thing that made you happy this weekend? hanging out with Fate and Frankie, the fam in general.
    Outfit and shoes: slippers, sweatshirt and pjs.
    Current lipstick or lipgloss crush? I just saw this Chanel lipstick on MakeupBag that I really liked. I’m pretty sure the lipstick was Naive.
    What are your nicknames? Rae, Rigs and Rigoletto. We get creative up in this piece.
    Song that always tugs at your heart? All by Myself by anyone (Air Supply, Celine Dion, etc.) and Cats in the Cradle by Harry Chapin
    How do you feel about 80s fashion? I don’t like 80s fashion. I immediately think obscenely BIG HAIR, acid wash jeans, shoulder pads, Member’s Only jackets, NEON, etc. I do think that bringing back *skinny jeans* is because of an 80s influence, though, and in a way I can appreciate that. I think skinny jeans are an interpretation of the tapered styles of the 80s and really straight styles of yore. I still continue to wear my bootcuts… but that’s neither here nor there.
    Favorite movie? Some faves ~ Old Boy, Milk and Shortbus.
    Weekly goals: Keep up with all the to-do lists I write on scrap paper lol.

    • Karen says:

      Hi Rachel,

      Oh, I saw that on Erika’s site, too. It’s from the new Chanel collection. I can’t wait to see it.

      BTW, I have a ton of to-do lists laying around, too. I started using Evernote and it’s helped a lot in keeping all of them straight.
