Makeup and Beauty Blog Monday Poll, March 21

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. 162. I’ve always enjoyed reading your answers in the comments, and I hope you enjoy reading mine.
  1. Mood:
  2. A little sleepy, Zzzz… I was tossing and turning a lot last night, but otherwise I’m great. I feel really hopeful and organized today.

  3. What do you use to clean your makeup brushes?
  4. For years I used MAC Brush Cleanser ($12), which always worked well, breaking up product buildup while being easy to rinse. I’d go through about a bottle a month, though, and that was adding up fast, so to save a few bucks I switched to Aussie Opposites Attract Shampoo. Just the regular shampoo. It takes a little longer to rinse, but it works well and only costs about $3.

  5. Wide-legged jeans — yea or nay?
  6. Yea! Within reason, of course. When they’re too wide, I think they make me look even shorter than I am, as if that’s possible, ha!

  7. The last book that made you cry?
  8. Mockingjay, the third book in The Hunger Games trilogy. I finished it in bed early one morning, emotionally exhausted. I think it was about 2, and I didn’t want to wake El Hub, so I went into the bathroom to quietly sob for about 10 minutes.

  9. Do you wear bracelets?
  10. Yes, as long as they have some kind of elastic to keep them snug against my wrist or forearm. Cuffs are cool too. But bangles that tend to movie up and down my arm get on my nerves (and in my way when I’m typing).

  11. Have you ever cut your own bangs?
  12. Yup. Back in my high school hair bear days I’d cut them unevenly on purpose, so that when I pumped them up with hairspray they’d looked layered. Eek, I must have looked like a HOT MESS!

  13. Are you a procrastinator?
  14. I’ll answer this one later, LOL! :) Well, it’s a habit I’m trying to break.

  15. Favorite cookie?
  16. Chewy semi-sweet chocolate chip, please.

  17. I always knew I’d…
  18. Have a job working with animals (or, in my case, working for one).

  19. Weekly goals:
  20. Track how much time I spend fooling around throughout the work day, reward myself for completing important tasks, run at least three times by Saturday, and prepare a real dinner four times this week (real meaning not something squeezed out of a package or a can).

Did that picture at the top of the post make you drool a little bit? If it did, may I introduce you to my delicious new obsession, the avena (aka oatmeal) shake. It’s made with oatmeal, milk, sugar and cinnamon, all blended together. I read that it’s popular in Latin American countries, and I can see why. YUM!



I got the recipe from skinnytaste.com. Gina, who runs the site, recommends adding ice before blending and drinking it cold for breakfast, but since it’s been chilly here in the morning, I skip the ice and drink it lukewarm.

I’ve been having it for/with breakfast for the past couple of days. SIDE NOTE: This is probably TMI, but if you’re trying to get more fiber in your diet, one glass of this stuff will clean your pipes (sorry)!

    1. Mood:
    Frustrated. My work laptop died yesterday so I can’t get much done today.

    2. What do you use to clean your makeup brushes?
    I’ve been using a gentle hand soap.

    3. Wide-legged jeans — yea or nay?
    Yea, but like you, they have to be the right width, otherwise they look silly on my 5ft frame. :-)

    4. The last book that made you cry?
    Hm, I can’t remember. But I do know I was quite moved when reading the Hunger Games books as well.

    5. Do you wear bracelets?
    Rarely. I’m at my computer all day and they sometimes get in the way of typing.

    6. Have you ever cut your own bangs?
    Yep, but mostly I just trim them in between haircuts.

    7. Are you a procrastinator?
    Most definitely, although I’m trying to be better at this.

    8. Favorite cookie?
    Warm chocolate chip cookies right out of the oven.

    9. I always knew I’d…
    Go to college. There was no other option from my Indian parents. :-)

    10. Weekly goals:
    Stick to my meal plan for dinner this week. Do some research on the Ipad 2 – trying to decide between the AT&T or Verizon version. Give myself a pedicure – it’s finally spring!

    Have a great Monday!

    1. Mood:
    Tired of studying but not really tired – it’s 1:27 AM and I’m just bored of reading about Metternich, Nationalism, and the Congress of Vienna (WOOT AP EURO!)

    2. What do you use to clean your makeup brushes?
    MAC Brush cleanser – completely agree, it’s awesome.

    3. Wide-legged jeans — yea or nay?
    A bit in the middle I guess. They look great… on other people. I definetly can’t pull them off; especially since I don’t wear hells. Wide legged jeans and flats just look awful – on me anyways. I’m only 5’4″. But I love how Chloe styled them in her spring 2011 (I THINK) show & on other people.

    4. The last book that made you cry?
    The only book I can remember that made me cry was stone fox by john reynold gardiner. That was in 2nd grade. I’m sure other books have made me cry but for now.. I just can’t seem to remember.

    5. Do you wear bracelets?
    Love them! I have a couple of gold bracelets that make me look instantly more chic when I’m just wearing denim shorts, a tee, and oxfords. More casual bracelets (like rope ones) are great for dressing down an outfit. I especially love something thats a bit vintage – adds some interest to the outfit.

    6. Have you ever cut your own bangs?
    Nope, and don’t think I ever will… but who knows. Never say never!

    7. Are you a procrastinator?
    Judging by how late I’m up.. I think it’s obvious that I am. But! I’m only up this late because I want to do well on my test (A+ HERE I COME – I hope).

    8. Favorite cookie?
    Love sugar cookies / pepperidge farm sausalito milk chocolate cookies / OREOS.

    9. I always knew I’d…
    Well, since I’m only in high school, I haven’t accomplished much yet.
    I guess, I always knew I’d study as much as possible every single day – parent pressure!

    10. Weekly goals:
    Tomorrow (or today) is the last day I’ll have school – VACATION! So, it’s to get through the today and then sleep as much as possible.

  6. Tracy says:

    1. Mood: Tired! Mondays suck.

    2. What do you use to clean your makeup brushes? MAC Brush Cleaner diluted for daily cleaning, Dr. Bonner’s Lavender Soap for a good cleaning

    4. The last book that made you cry? My Sister’s Keeper

    5. Do you wear bracelets? Yes! Love them.

    6. Have you ever cut your own bangs? Yup, when I had bangs. I don’t do bangs anymore.

    8. Favorite cookie? Chocolate chip!

    9. I always knew I’d…love being a mom because I love playing with playdough!

    4. The last book that made you cry?: Haruki Murakami’s Norwegian Wood. Too close to home!

    Nay. They make my legs look ginormous.

    Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows is the first one that comes to mind. *spoiler* When Dobby died, I felt like that was the moment my childhood ended *endspoiler*

    5. Do you wear bracelets?
    Sometimes. Mostly I wear hair elastics on my wrists just in case I need one.

    6. Have you ever cut your own bangs?
    I always cut my own bangs. Hairdressers always cut them too short!

    7. Are you a procrastinator?

    Finish the documentary for English class. I think it’s gonna rock.

    1. Mood: Pretty good. My birthday is in a week and a half. I’m getting excited about it.

    2. What do you use to clean your makeup brushes? I use anti-bacterial hand soap. Just a bit. And tap water. Works wonders!

    3. Wide-legged jeans — yea or nay? Yea. It can look good, whether or not you’re trying to make a ‘statement’.

    4. The last book that made you cry? The Hunger Games. Boy, did I cry. I still have to read the other two books. Hopefully I get them for my birthday!

    5. Do you wear bracelets? Rarely. I always MEAN to wear jewelry, but it almost never happens.

    6. Have you ever cut your own bangs? Yep. I think I first cut them in elementary school. But now I’m the only one who does. I don’t go to a stylist. I’ve been cutting my own hear for the last 12 years. I’m pretty darn good at it! And I’ve had a lot of different styles in that time.

    7. Are you a procrastinator? I’ll tell you tomorrow. ;)

    8. Favorite cookie? Orange cookies. Family recipe. They’re soft and cake-y with thin frosting and multi-colored sprinkles.

    1. Mood: Pretty good–my one-year-old just cracked me up by dancing to trance music…while taking a bath. He was making his little bath toy lobster dance with him. Hilarious!

    3. Wide-legged jeans — yea or nay? Oh yea. YEA, even. Low-rise with cute flip flops and a surfer t-shirt. Or a vintage concert t-shirt.
    4. The last book that made you cry? I can’t remember! So I’ll tell you that every time I see the video for Pink’s “F****** Perfect” I sob my eyes out.
    5. Do you wear bracelets? Rarely. I have tiny 5 1/4 inch wrists, and it’s tough to find bracelets that don’t scooch all over. If I find a snug band, sure.
    6. Have you ever cut your own bangs? I am pretty sure I did in college, and I am also pretty sure I’ve blocked the results out of my memory.
    7. Are you a procrastinator? Am I doing the MBB Monday Poll instead of my laundry?
    8. Favorite cookie? A vegan bakery that no longer exists made “everything” cookies the size of a pancake with dark chocolate, golden raisins, oats, brown sugar, dried cranberries, coconut, dates, and dried blueberries. Those cookies were healthy and heavenly. I once told my husband he had to try one, and I’d save him some of mine…but then I ate it all, with no regrets.

    Hi Karen,
    do you mind sharing the recipe for the avena? I’m highly intrigued but the website doesn’t seem to be working. Thank you!!

    • Karen says:

      Hi Burcin,

      Here’s the recipe:

      1/2 cup quick oats
      2 cups water
      1 cup fat free milk
      1 cup ice
      3 tbsp sugar
      2 tsp ground cinammon

      Cook oats and water in a small pot for about a minute or two, stirring often until it becomes thick and bubbly. Remove from heat and let it cool a few minutes.

      In a blender add milk, sugar, cinammon. Add oats and ice. Blend on high until very smooth. Chill in refrigerator or pour in a glass over ice. Enjoy!! Makes 4 cups.

  42. kalcedon says:

    1. Mood: energetic, glad and proud (well, for a hile now I’ve been taking part in a surveying capmaign in one of most favourite theaters here… it’s a bit like internship, we get to see the plays for free if we are ordered in and work well… and we’re doing surveys, so it helps me dealing with my issues with talking to strangers, and I’m doing quite well… also, the actors I’ve been admiring for years now greet us and encourage us to enjoy our working and we get to use the secret routes and passages and doors in the theatre, so it’s pretty cool :D it was the third time I did this, and I cannot wait for more :D)
    2. What do you use for cleaning your brushes? Some kind of shampoo, usually.
    3. Wide-legged jeans? When they’re not too wide and made out of some dark blue denim, they’re OK, otherwise no
    4. The last book that made you cry? I don’t easily cry because of books, but I cried on Flowers for Algernon last time. Such a moving story.
    5. Do you wear bracelets? Only when the weather is good, because when I’m wearing long-sleeved shirts and cardigans, it’s no use of them, and I hate the feeling of something bulging under my shirt, and I’m not gonna wear them over clothes, either. Otherwise, I LOVE them, but my wrists are pretty thin, too… so if it’s not an elastic one, I usually try to make it narrower myself (like charm bracelets). I love bangles, but I have to be careful when I buy one, for the same reasons… most of them fall off of my wrist if I do a quick movement :S.
    6. Have you ever cut your own bangs? My bangs, not. But when I was bored, I used to cut some strands of hair (to have the same length).
    7. Are you a procrastinator? Unfortunately, yes.
    8. Fave cookie? Macarons, old school chocolate chip cookies, muffins (if that’s considered a cookie, I have a huge problem with this word as a Hungarian, especially because they have alternative meanings in UK and US English, if I remember well…)
    9. I always knew I’d… never stop writing, Ir’s like therapy for me :).

    1. Mood:
    -Sick, I have the flu so I’m stuck in bed, pumping myself full of vitamins, Green tea, Water, and my Boyfriend’s mother just sent him over with some vegetable soup (The sweetheart).

    2. What do you use to clean your makeup brushes? I tried everything – brush cleaner, face wash, wipes – but nothing cleaned better than good ol’ shampoo.

    3. Wide-legged jeans — yea or nay? Depends on a case-by-case basis. (Sorry, I’ve been typing this phrase all day!)

    4. The last book that made you cry? Could have been one of the picks from my old book club; it was either The History of Love (Nicola Krauss) or The Thirteenth Tale (Diane Setterfield).

    7. Are you a procrastinator? Yeah, I guess.

    8. Favorite cookie? Now that chocolate is temporarily out of my life, I’ll call this one for Filipino-style ladyfingers. Deceptively light and simple, but so good.

    9. I always knew I’d… go very, very far with my life.

    10. Weekly goals: Finish grading my papers AGAIN, FOR THE LAST TIME… and hopefully without getting too angry ;) Also: water and exercise.
