Makeup and Beauty Blog Monday Poll, March 14

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. 161. I’ve always enjoyed reading your answers in the comments, and I hope you enjoy reading mine.
  1. Mood:
  2. Pretty darn great for a Monday.

  3. My friends always make fun of me for ____.
  4. Being late, my footwear choices (I wear a lot of high heels), and for being a CCL.

  5. My ultimate dream is to ____.
  6. Win the lottery and travel the world, or figure out the meaning of life.

  7. I’m terrified of ____.
  8. Worms, hospitals, and small spaces (in no particular order).

  9. What makeup/beauty product are you dying to try?
  10. I’m majorly lusting over everything in the Becca Halcyon Days Collection. Oh, and I just picked up a few goodies from a new line called Bite Beauty that I can’t wait to test drive.

  11. Words to live by?
  12. You’re capable of much more than you think you are. :)

  13. Outfit?
  14. I look pretty ‘tow up right now… I’m in my workout attire — dark gray sweat pants, a pink t-shirt and pink hoodie. And I’m also wearing socks with the purple shoes pictured up top, LOL! Not to exercise in, of course. I found the shoes on sale at Marshalls, and I’m just breaking them in around the house.

  15. Favorite fruit?
  16. Ruby red grapefruit! I love everything about ‘em — the color, and the combination of sweet and tart flavors.

  17. Something you’ve been meaning to do but keep putting off?
  18. Finally get a dining room table. I’ve been eating meals sitting on the couch in front of the telly or standing at the kitchen counter since we moved in more than a year ago, and I’m rather sick of it.

  19. Weekly goals:
  20. Read at least an hour every day, run a total of 13 miles this week, stretch after every workout, and hit the haaay by 10 every night.

Hey, friend. Howzit going this morning? Tabs and I haven’t adjusted to the DST time change yet. He’s slept even more than usual yesterday and today, like it’s been his sole mission in life. Apparently, life as a spoiled, slightly chunky tabby cat is hard work.

    • Karen says:

      Worms freak me out… especially earthworms. I hate their little turtleneck thingys and how they look so slimy. BLECH!!

      So tell me about this boy! Where did you meet him?

      • steph b says:

        I dealt with tiny worms but they were bizarre — some had jaws and all kinds of stinging hair-like things. Total sci-fi flick monster models.

        Met the boy on the job. We’re both looking for other jobs so I’m not too worried about the whole don’t date at the office thing. He is funny, smart, and calls me on my crap. Gotta love that.

        • Karen says:

          Seriously… just reading that made my skin crawl. BLAH!

          Sounds like a cool guy. He better say yes when you ask him out for drinks. ;)

          BTW, a sense of humor = super important. Have you ever dated someone who doesn’t get your jokes? So painful.

          • steph b says:

            Sense of humor is critical. I have dated someone who just didn’t get that I was sometimes silly, sometimes sarcastic, and little things crack me up. There were many awkward pauses in our conversations.

          • Karen says:

            It really is high up there on the compatibility list. It’s just that much more fun to spend time with someone when you get the same jokes, right?

            Oh, I know what you mean about the awkward pauses. They’re worse when you actually have to explain why something’s funny…

    • Karen says:

      Hi Heidi!

      Nice to see you. :) How are you today?

      Tabs is sitting on the windowsill chirping away at the birds as I type this… he says to send Missy his love. ;)

      • Heidi says:

        Missy just meowed something that I think translates to “back at ya, Tabs, babe!”

        That’s funny, Missy has been spending much of the day looking outside at birds, too. I can always tell which birds are out there by the sounds she makes. Mellow, happy chirping noises (yes, she makes a chirping noise) means little birds like finches are out there. A cooing sound means the doves are here. Frantic screeching: must be the obnoxious, aggressive blue jays!

        So, I’m just chilling in front of the computer, sipping on Zhena’s Gypsy Tea in Firelight Chai. Sooo good.

        Did some birthday gift card spending yesterday. Makeup, of course! Got the nail polishes from MAC’s Jeanious collection, The blushing bronzer from Estee Lauder, and a blush and a couple of 24/7 shadow pencils from Urban Decay.

        • Karen says:

          Oh, how are you liking the blushing bronzer from Estee Lauder? Isn’t it so pretty? I could stare at it all day long.

          Haha, now that I think about it, Tabs does have various bird chirps. Small birds get a raspy “Ah-ah-ah-ah-ah.” Crows, vultures (we live on a hill so the swoop around the trees sometimes) and turkeys get breathy, excited clucks along with a furious tail whip.

          Speaking of tea, I’m about to make a cup of Mighty Leaf Ginger. It’s my new favorite herbal blend.

          • Heidi says:

            Mmmm…. I love ginger tea!

            Yesterday was soo funny! I ended up testing blush at the MAC, Urban Decay, and Estee Lauder counters! So I had three different looks going without even leaving the store! I don’t even remember which one was applied last (yes, we did use makeup wipes in between, they weren’t just piled up on top of eachother!). The Estee Lauder is gorgeous! Bronzers don’t usually work for my pale skin, but this one is lovely applied lightly with the blush added on the apples for a pop of color.

          • Karen says:

            I’m usually not a big ginger fan but this one I really like. It’s more fruity, and it doesn’t have the sharp bite that ginger usually has.

            It sounds like you had a LOT of fun trying stuff on (that’s the best part) at the counter. :) My motto is a girl can never have enough blushes. Yay for birthday shopping!

    Any arachnid, bugs (except the rolly poly and the butterfly), small spaces.
