Makeup and Beauty Blog Monday Poll, June 7

Published in: Just For Fun


The entrance to Castello di Amorosa Winery in Calistoga, California

  1. Mood:
  2. Organized and ready to handle some bidness! I spent yesterday afternoon straightening out my workspace because clutter kills!

  3. What’s been the most inspirational makeup collection for you?
  4. I’d been using the same brown, pink and taupe palette for most of my life until the Barbie Loves MAC release a few years ago. That collection was like the match that lit my makeup fire! It was a gateway drug to a full-blown beauty addiction.

  5. What are your favorite three cities in the world?
  6. Honolulu, New York City and Please-Don’t-Call-It-Frisco

  7. Describe your sense of beauty and style.
  8. Classic with a pinch of eclectic (code word for strange), edgier colors thrown in for good measure.

  9. If you wrote a memoir, what would it be titled?
  10. The Life and Times of a Cat Lady, or maybe Karen: The Girl Who Couldn’t Spell Freedom, LOL!

  11. What’s the last “coolest” thing you’ve bought?
  12. A pair of dangly shell chandelier earrings from H&M; they were hella cheap and go with everything. I don’t expect to have them long, though, because I’m bad about losing jewelry.

  13. The most played song on your iPod?
  14. I have no idea how it happened, but I’ve played Sheryl Crow’s Always On Your Side 851 times.

  15. Where do you go to get your staple makeup/beauty items?
  16. Mostly MAC counters and MAC Pro stores, Target and Sephora.

  17. Outfit:
  18. A gray sundress and flip flops. It’s supposed to be in the ’80s here today, so, yay/yea, summer!

  19. Weekly goals:
  20. To not let all of the time I spent organizing my workspace go to waste, to do more stretching, to run at least three times, to plan another fun day out with my girlfriends for some time in July and to go shopping for some new treats and toys for Tabs (he likes scratching posts and Pounce! treats).

Hello, and happy manic Monday, friends!

Here’s a seemingly random question, but if you have pets, do they go through phases where they’re more lovey than usual? After ignoring me for days like a petulant teenager, Tabs has again deemed me worthy of his affections.

While I slept on my side last night, he balanced precariously on my hip, adoring me with his eyes (kinda awkward when said cat’s 15 pounds and clumsy). And then this morning before I got out of bed he plopped down on my chest and blew stinky gravy breath in my face.

I know his newfound adoration won’t last long, so I plan to enjoy it while it lasts.

How’s your Monday coming along? Hope things got off to a fab start. Do you have a minute for the Monday Poll?

If you do, just copy the following list, and paste it with your answers in the comments.

My kitten Tommy is usually glued to my side, but this past week he wouldn’t sleep with me in bed like he usually does every night. Then yesterday morning I woke up and he was curled into my hip. My other cat Mittens will act aloof some days and others she will need to be on my lap 24-7.

    Ahhh, I’m super late, but I haven’t gone to sleep yet so it’s kind of still Monday? LOL.

    1. Mood: Optimistic. I’ve been suffering from a muscle spasm for 9 days BUT, I have one (group) paper left, packing, moving, my mom & brother get here this week, may go dress shopping & birthday dinner with friends, and I graduate Friday/Saturday/Sunday! Plus, I found awesome summer housing (on-campus grad housing means I have NO COMMUTE!) for really cheap today, finalized that, and SO and I are leaving for Germany and Greece next week! It’ll be a jam-packed week and weekend, but I’m suuuuuper excited!

    2. What’s been the most inspirational makeup collection for you? Hmmmm. That’s a toughie. Recently? MAC To The Beach for sure, for getting me out of my makeup rut, but overall, probably MAC Holiday ’08 as it’s when I decided I would finally conquer eyeshadow.

    3. What are your favorite three cities in the world? San Francisco, Taipei aaaaand… San Diego?

    4. Describe your sense of beauty and style: I try to be classic and polished with a fun edge. I’m not sure I achieve that all the time lol… I really, really, really try not to be cute since my size and facial structure exude cute to begin with.

    5. If you wrote a memoir, what would it be titled? Another tough question! I honestly have no idea… LOL. I honestly doubt I would ever write a memoir. It would be too depressing.

    6. What’s the last “coolest” thing you’ve bought? Er, I don’t know if my UCSD Bioengineering sweatshirt counts. Other than that, I can’t decide whether NARS Taj Mahal or the MAC Pink Rebel Lustre Drops is cooler… hehe.

    7. The most played song on your iPod? You know, honestly, I don’t really play music on my iPod. I just use it for accessing the internet on campus when I don’t have my laptop (read: almost never). And I rarely listen to music on my laptop either. iTunes says my most played song is Beethoven’s Moonlight Sonata though, followed fairly closely by Disney’s Mulan’s I’ll Make a Man Out of You (which you know you HAVE to sing along to!).

    8. Where do you go to get your staple makeup/beauty items? Sephora/Nordstroms/Ulta/CVS. I have things that are exclusive to each store, sadly lol.

    9. Outfit: A red/orange/blue watercolor floral print sundress with black boyfriend blazer. I decided I would wear dresses every single day this week! Because I’ve accumulated 5 since my birthday, lol. Sadly, the weather is not cooperating. I was freezing today! June gloom. =/

    10. Your weekly goals: … not die? And have fun in the process! LOL… I would like to be fully packed by Thursday night, finish selling off all furniture by Saturday, go dress shopping with my friends, arrange dinner to celebrate someone’s birthday, and finish our last group paper on time. And so… that means laundry done by tomorrow… D:
