Makeup and Beauty Blog Monday Poll, March 7

Published in: Just For Fun

makeup and beauty blog monday poll

  • 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. 160. I’ve always enjoyed reading your answers in the comments, and I hope you enjoy reading mine.
  1. Mood:
  2. A little out of it today (my tea hasn’t kicked in yet), but otherwise good.

  3. What’s your biggest hair concern?
  4. Finding stylists able to cut my wavy hair well. I’ve had some awful haircuts over the years that have left me looking like bad topiary.

  5. Orange lipstick?
  6. Heck, yeah! Can I wear some cat eye liner with it?

  7. What’s the wackiest piece of clothing you own?
  8. It’s a tossup between the cropped black-and-white faux fur jacket I got at Bebe back in the early two-thousands, or my shiny, button-down Felix the Cat shirt.

  9. When things get crazy in your life, how do you keep your sanity?
  10. I make lists. LOTS of lists. Because the act of crossing things off of them helps me feel like I’m doing something to restore order to the chaos.

  11. What’s your preferred brow maintenance method?
  12. I pluck mine with square-tip tweezers, usually right after I get out of the shower. I find the square-tip ones easier to use than the slanted or pointy ones. And I also like to stay on top of it by doing a little bit of plucking every day, as opposed to waiting and doing a massive hair removal session at one time.

  13. Salty or sweet?
  14. Mostly sweet, but I like both (like salted caramels, or regular popcorn with some kettle corn on top).

  15. Three desert island essentials?
  16. Bottled water, a satellite phone and Benjamin McKenzie…or sunscreen (I can’t decide!).

  17. Favorite ’90s music?
  18. En Vogue’s Funky Divas, the Counting Crows’ August & Everything After, Lil’ Kim’s Crush on You, Biggie’s Ready to Die. Seriously, I could go on forever.

  19. Weekly goals:
  20. To start every day by updating my to-do list, to focus on just one thing at a time (I’ve been so easily distracted lately), and to run a total of 12 miles before Saturday.

Hey, buddy. :) How was your weekend? Please tell me it was good (but you can tell me if it wasn’t). Things on my side of the keyboard aren’t bad. No complaints. I had a relaxing girl’s spa day with a few friends on Saturday (more on that in a few) and found out that one of my BFF’s is going to be a mom, so that’s pretty great.



Right now I’m here drinking some green tea and writing my to-do list for the day. I’m trying to figure out if there’s any way I can squeeze in a few minutes to visit the Benefit counter today. I’m going through (another) serious Creaseless Cream Shadow phase, and I want to pick up Strut (a shimmery charcoal). Maybe on my lunch hour…

If you get a break this morning, please take a minute to check in. You know how we do it. Just copy/paste the poll in the comments, or drop in to let me know how you’re doing.

  • To complete the Monday Poll, just copy the following list, and paste it with your answers in the comments.

  3. Gina says:

    1. Mood:
    Stressed! My story is being critiqued today in my fiction writing class. I always get so nervous!

    2. What’s your biggest hair concern?
    Definitely split ends. My hair can get so dry sometimes, that in no time at all, I’ve got a head full of ‘em.

    3. Orange lipstickl?
    Absolutely! On my next trip to MAC, I’m grabbing myself a tube of Vegas Volt.

    4. What’s the wackiest piece of clothing you own?
    Probably my fishnet stockings.

    5. When things get crazy in your life, how do you keep your sanity?
    Laying back in bed with some mindless TV and my chubby cat by my side =]

    6. What’s your preferred brow maintenance method?
    Tweezing, and filling in with powder.

    7. Salty or sweet?
    Both! I have a little bag of honey roasted peanuts in my purse that’s calling my name.

    8.Three desert island essentials?
    My favorite mascara, my kitty, and a box of cannoli’s from my local Italian bakery. Mmm…

    9. Favorite ’90s music?
    Nine Inch Nails!

    10. Weekly goals:
    Study for all of my upcoming midterms!

  4. Trisha says:

    My weekend was pretty darn relaxing. Got lots of stuff for almost free with coupons. So that’s always good.

    1. Mood: Secondary. What I mean is, I don’t feel like doing things I HAVE to do, so I’m busy doing things I don’t. Umm, what?

    2. What’s your biggest hair concern? “Day Two Hair.” My hair is a complete, greasy, tangled rat’s nest the day after I wash it. If I wanted to look cute every day, I’d need to wash it every day, and that’s bad for your hair. I still haven’t figured out how to get past this…

    3. Orange lipstickl? It looks good on some. I don’t think it would look good on me. But I’d try it.

    4. What’s the wackiest piece of clothing you own? …Tee hee. I have these jeans I got in high school. This was during the wide-legged jeans fad, but–of course–I had to take it several steps further. The jeans are called “69ers” because the cuff size of EACH pant leg is 69 inches wide. Each! I could fit a family of four in those pants! They were great. I don’t wear them anymore, but I’m never getting rid of them.

    5. When things get crazy in your life, how do you keep your sanity? I go be by myself. I read or watch TV or play video games, and then eventually feel better.

    6. What’s your preferred brow maintenance method? Tweezing. It’s easier for me. Though I would like to get my brows threaded some day just to see how it looks.

    7. Salty or sweet? Both. I like and crave both, but I generally like to end on a salty note.

    8.Three desert island essentials? Lip balm, sun screen, and Adrien Brody.

    9. Favorite ’90s music? I loved the hip hop/pop/dance party music from the 90s. I used to tape the radio during the non-stop Friday night dance parties. “Boom boom boom, let me hear you say ‘wayo’!”

    10. Weekly goals: Win a million dollars. Somehow.

  5. 1. Mood:
    Excited! My dad’s coming down and bringing along my new iPhone 4 (I’m currently using a HTC Hero, which I also love) on Wednesday so I’m really excited about it!

    2. What’s your biggest hair concern?
    My sensitive scalp, mainly. If I use unsuitable products my scalp will flake :\

    3. Orange lipstick?
    Ooooh wouldn’t mind it :D

    4. What’s the wackiest piece of clothing you own?
    That would be a long, thick, wool coat (Very posh, and vintage, really. Bought as a thrift shop ages ago) with fur trimmings on the collar and cuffs. Thing is, there’s no where I can wear it to because I live in a tropical country, and that’s why it’s crazy!

    5. When things get crazy in your life, how do you keep your sanity?
    Like you Karen, I make lists. Lists bring order and I am able to keep a focused mind about what needs to be done when.

    6. What’s your preferred brow maintenance method?
    A mix between tweezing and the little brow shaver. The ones that are shaped like a conventional shaver but really small and only one blade.

    7. Salty or sweet?
    Sweet, mostly. But things like Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups won’t be the same if they weren’t salty-ish :P

    8.Three desert island essentials?
    Sunscreen, iced drinks, satellite phone haha!

    9. Favorite ’90s music?
    Gosh, this would be a long list :P I was a boyband fan, though.

    10. Weekly goals:
    Enjoy my iPhone 4 when it arrives, relax (I’ve really been stressing out and worrying too much) and enjoy my life basically :)

  6. Lesley Jean says:

    1.Mood:
    Downward spiral. Coffee and donuts have worn off. Caffeine and sugar high has gone bye bye. Still optimistic and looking forward to some down time at home tonight!

    2.What’s your biggest hair concern?
    How (or if I will have any left) to style my hair after a surgical procedure to remove a tumor from my scalp. Super comb over? Pony tail? Go bald? Decisions, decisions. I’m having separation anxiety about my hair already.

    3.Orange lipstick?
    Not for me. Sephora has been pushing it but I’m not ready yet. I’m also concerned how it would look on my off white teeth.

    4.What’s the wackiest piece of clothing you own?
    I call them “Queen of Hearts”… peep toes with red sequins, black and white striped high heels, and a red bow.

    5.When things get crazy in your life, how do you keep your sanity?
    Hold on and attempt to be still. Not act impulsively. Unplug from technology. Count blessings.

    6.What’s your preferred brow maintenance method?
    Waxing with plucking in between. I need to learn to wax at home. I have a unibrow to keep at bay.

    7.Salty or sweet?
    Sweet tooth for days.

    8.Three desert island essentials?
    I am crashing. Can’t even think of a witty answer!

    9.Favorite ’90s music?
    Goodie Mob, Wu Tang Clan, Outkast, Nas, Pharcyde, Jay Z. I was heavy into hip hop.

    10.Weekly goals:
    Don’t procrastinate so much. That helps me get things taken care of. Even a little at a time. This week’s super special goals: order vegetable seeds, finish some crafts, clean bathroom, whiten teeth.

    3. Orange lipstickl? I think I can rock it!

    4. What’s the wackiest piece of clothing you own? This brightly printed cardigan! .. Used to hate it, now I love it!

    5. When things get crazy in your life, how do you keep your sanity? I eat candy ..and lots of it!

    6. What’s your preferred brow maintenance method? I pluck them! ..that’s about it!

    Le List:

    1. Mood:
    Sucky. My cat, Mingus, ripped up a part of my husband’s Very Expensive Speakers. He got in trouble this morning and is spending the day outside. Luckily the part is replaceable. We love the kitty, but we’re not sure if we can keep him alone in the house anymore.

    2. What’s your biggest hair concern?
    Trying to add volume to my fine hair.

    3. Orange lipstick?
    Maybe – I’d have to experiment to find the right color.

    4. What’s the wackiest piece of clothing you own?
    My fuzzy light blue leopard print pajama pants. They look strange, but they’re super comfy. :-)

    5. When things get crazy in your life, how do you keep your sanity?
    I’m a list person too.

    6. What’s your preferred brow maintenance method?
    Threading. I found a place in the local mall that does a great job. I go about once a month and then tweeze inbetween.

    7. Salty or sweet?
    Definitely sweet – mainly of the chocolate variety.

    8. Three desert island essentials?
    Water, sunscreen and some good books.

    9. Favorite ’90s music?
    Nirvana, Hole, Smashing Pumpkins, Pearl Jam – grunge all the way!

    10, Weekly goals:
    Nothing specific – just need to try and make it through the week.

    Hope your Monday is going well!

  9. Fieran says:

    1. Mood: I’m alright – quite excited that I managed to get a friend to pick up the 6 Cool Smoky Shadows from MAC Packed to Go for me.
    2. What’s your biggest hair concern? Big, frizzy hair. I have wavy hair that has been straightened with Japanese hair relaxing technique, but now that it is halfway grown out it looks a bit odd – wavy and straight – so I have to iron or blowdry it out every two – three days or just wear it in a ponytail to not look weird. Urgh. So not straightening my hair ever again.
    3. Orange lipstickl? Probably not. I don’t have the guts for bright lips.
    4. What’s the wackiest piece of clothing you own? My Desigual jacket – it’s like a patchwork design, kind of crazy but I love it. Can’t wait for Spring so I can wear it.
    5. When things get crazy in your life, how do you keep your sanity? Talk to the bf about everything that’s on my mind – he’s my rock – he always knows what to say and how to analyze stuff in a good way.
    6. What’s your preferred brow maintenance method? I have a lot of eyebrow so I tweeze and then trim the length of the hair with a facial hair trimmer by Panasonic. It’s as good as I can get here in Norway. Back home I used to go for threading but man that is painful.
    7. Salty or sweet? I’m quite sweet tooth which is really bad for my tummy. I wish I could be reprogrammed to hate sugar :) Now that would be good.
    8.Three desert island essentials? iPhone, deodorant, cleanser, moisturizer and sunscreen.
    9. Favorite ’90s music? This is cheesy but I kind of liked 98 Degrees – actually got to watch them live once. Ahh those were the days.
    10. Weekly goals: Slowly start packing for my vacation, get a lot of work done (at work) so that I can leave in peace, with no guilty conscience, go to the gym at least twice, and eat healthy.

  10. Katy says:

    1. Mood: Could be better. I am having one of those days where I ponder all my mistakes and all the “woulda, coulda, shouldas”.
    2. What’s your biggest hair concern? Breaking the habit of coloring my hair… I have a lovely natural color and my wallet needs a break haha
    3. Orange lipstickl? My mom! My mom loves orange lipstick and her favorite is volcanic by loreal. She rocks it like no one else! (she can also rock fuchsia!) She’s got a lot of sass!
    4. What’s the wackiest piece of clothing you own? Hello Kitty PJs haha
    5. When things get crazy in your life, how do you keep your sanity? To be honest I’m not sure. I just keep moving forward until things settle down again.
    6. What’s your preferred brow maintenance method? plucking after washing my face
    7. Salty or sweet? BOTH! I love to put peanut M&Ms in my popcorn
    8.Three desert island essentials? the boyfran, sunblock, & chapstick
    9. Favorite ’90s music? toad and the wet sprocket
    10. Weekly goals: Stay positive and have a good week! I turn 24 on Friday so this is my birthday week and I need to enjoy it :)

  11. kali says:

    LOL! I make lists too. These past few months have been crazy so being able to cross things off makes me feel SO GOOD. This past Tuesday, I made a list of things that needed to be done by this coming Tuesday (tomorrow) and there were 50+ things on the list. I’ve completed nearly everything but tonight I’ll have to make a new list of another 50 things. =O

    I even add things like “eating” because sometimes with the heavy load, I forget to. Also, it’s one of the easier things to be able to cross off. At the end of tomorrow, I’ll have a huge list with everything crossed out in rainbow colors -I feel that using different colored pens makes the whole “list” thing a little more fun. =P

  12. 1. Mood: Frazzled…my finals start on Friday and I have about 8000 pages of readings along with projects to complete before then!

    2. What’s your biggest hair concern? I’m terrified of damaging or frying it. I have never colored it or had a chemical treatment. As a consequence it is very smooth and healthy but also very limp and bodyless!

    3. Orange lipstick? Sure, why not? I don’t own one now but I’m open to it especially with a tan in the summer!

    4. What’s the wackiest piece of clothing you own? Hmm I’m not really sure that I own anything wacky that I would actually wear out of the house but I have a couple of my Grandma’s old fur coats and lace hats in storage in my closet.

    5. When things get crazy in your life how do you keep your sanity? I also make lists…I’m actually going to make a list right after this! Bubble baths also help, as well as any little thing to relax or feel pretty like a nice candle or a face mask. Also shopping helps but I really shouldn’t use shopping as stress relief!

    6. What’s your preferred brow maintenance method? I pluck the hairs every few days with slant tip tweezers and then thread them every couple of days because my brow hairs are very fine and its hard to grab those little “invisible hairs” with just tweezers…but as my friend asked me “Why do you care about getting rid of them if they are invisible?”…boys just don’t understand :P

    7. Salty or sweet? Both please, but not at the same time.

    8. Three desert island essentials? Lipbalm, toothpaste and a satellite phone as well

    9. Favorite 90s music? Spice Girls and Aqua :P

    10. Weekly goals: To not fail school (i.e. study and read the 8 million readings I have to do), eat healthy(ish), and try not to go insane

    Have a great week Karen! Your Monday polls always put a smile on my face!

  13. Laurina says:

    1. Mood: sleepy
    2. What’s your biggest hair concern? frizz!!! My hair LOVES to frizz up all the time and I always have to fight with my hair!
    3. Orange lipstick? Done right, it can look really flattering
    4. What’s the wackiest piece of clothing you own? My hippie tie dye skirt I got from the Mile High Music Festival one year
    5. When things get crazy in your life, how do you keep your sanity? put what I need to do in my calendar and hope it all gets done

  14. kali says:

    1. Mood: Tired but ready to tackle all the things that I need to do today.
    2. What’s your biggest hair concern? Dandruff. The last 2 or 3 shampoos/conditioners that I’ve used have given me dandruff. I’m using a new L’Oreal one and luckily, things have been good so far. But the conditioner still leaves my hair a bit tangled. =\
    3. Orange lipstickl? Yes!
    4. What’s the wackiest piece of clothing you own? Maybe a t-shirt I made with dancing vegetables complete with googly eyes -made it for class in hs and it’s become one of my staple pj sets. Not very attractive but comfy.
    5. When things get crazy in your life, how do you keep your sanity? I got to sleep! But that never fixes anything. I write lists like you and try to get everything done before I sleep (at least what needs to be done for that day.)
    6. What’s your preferred brow maintenance method? It’s a mix of tweezing, shaving (inbetween the brows with a razor), and trimming with scissors.
    7. Salty or sweet? Both. I love sweet things but overly sweet can be too much. I love salt too.
    8.Three desert island essentials? Cold beverages, sunscreen, and my bf or one of my friends.
    9. Favorite ’90s music? Agh! Too many to name. Probably anything Jodeci.
    10. Weekly goals: Get everything done! Stay alive until Thursday night.. then it’s all about resting on Friday.

  17. Heidi says:

    Hey, Karen. Guess what I had the other day? My Mom took me out for a birthday lunch. We went to Crepevine (I think you have one of those in San Rafael, too). Anyhoo when it came time for dessert — Crepes with Strawberries, Bananas, and….. NUTELLA!!!!!!!!!! Oh, it was amazing!

    On to the poll:

    1. Mood: Tired, but excited. I have lots of birthday plans this week. I like to spread it out as long as possible!

    4. What’s the wackiest piece of clothing you own?

    I was in Morro Bay, CA a few years back and got a bright yellow t-shirt with Tweety on it wearing swimming trunks, sunglasses, and sporting a sunburn. I don’t wear this out of the house, mind you, but it does make me smile when I wear it to putter around.

    5. When things get crazy in your life, how do you keep your sanity?

    Put on some great music and remember to take deep breaths!

    6. What’s your preferred brow maintenance method?

    7. Salty or sweet?

    8.Three desert island essentials?

    Music, sunscreen, and some good books

    9. Favorite ’90s music?

    Nirvana, Pearl Jam, and too many R&B/Hip Hop tunes to even list.

    10. Weekly goals:

    I signed up to work on a fund-raising committee for some local non-profits, so I’ll be busy with that. Otherwise, to just enjoy spending time with friends this week.

    2. What’s your biggest hair concern? Frizz (I have curly hair)
    3. Orange lipstickl? Hmm I haven’t tried it but I’m curious.
    4. What’s the wackiest piece of clothing you own? Now..I probably just own some wacky pj pants but back in the early 90s I went through that whole Cross Colors and Kriss Kross look and had overalls (and always had 1 strap hanging) and purple pants.
    5. When things get crazy in your life, how do you keep your sanity? Gym. I wish I had time to get back into boxing because that was the best stress reliever ever!
    6. What’s your preferred brow maintenance method? I wax them myself.
    7. Salty or sweet? SWEET! Preferably chocolate!
    8.Three desert island essentials? Bottled water, cell phone with Internet acess, and sun screen (so boring but if you want to throw in Paul Walker or Jay Hernandez…I wouldn’t complain)
    9. Favorite ’90s music? Anytime I think of 90s music I think of Grove is in the Heart by Dee-lite. That song just gets me in a good mood.

  30. Liz! says:

    1. Mood: Good. Went to the gym for the first time after being crazy sick/super busy for the last 2 weeks. I hurt a little, but in a good way!

    2. What’s your biggest hair concern? Frizz, always frizz. And I share the same woes regarding finding a good stylist to deal with wavy hair as you Karen. I think I may have found a good one, I liked my last cut and color but I really think my next appointment will really tell.

    3. Orange lipstickl? I love the idea, but I’m just not a lipstick gal. I will probably like it on others though.

    4. What’s the wackiest piece of clothing you own? A fur vest. When I wear it, I tell people I’m “Viking Princess Barbie” :D

    5. When things get crazy in your life, how do you keep your sanity? Vent to my husband, pray, and really make sure I eat right, sleep right and exercise.

    6. What’s your preferred brow maintenance method? I prefer plucking though I’ll occasionally buy wax strips to get my brow bone. I usually find that to be too much of a hassle though. And I’ve always hated how they’ve come out when I’ve got them done in a salon, I just don’t look good with pencil thin brows.

    7. Salty or sweet? SWEET! But sometimes I like salty AND sweet :D

    8.Three desert island essentials? Sunscreen, mascara and lipbalm.

    9. Favorite ’90s music? I loved the whole grunge/alternative thing. Actually still do :)

    10. Weekly goals: Work on my midterms, get through this week so I can enjoy spring break next week! Oh, and rock out at the concert I’m seeing Friday!

  31. Adria says:

    1. Mood: Optimistic. I am almost half way done with my final semester of college!

    2. What’s your biggest hair concern? Like you, Karen, I have wavy hair, so it is a challenge to find someone who knows how to deal with it. But my main hair concern is how schizo it is! If i live in the desert, it goes limp and has no life (and doesn’t hold waves or curl as well), but if I live back on the East Coast, it’s frizz city! Make up your mind, hair!

    3. Orange lipstickl? I don’t think it’s for me.

    4. What’s the wackiest piece of clothing you own? Um, nothing that I can think of, really…

    5. When things get crazy in your life, how do you keep your sanity? Yoga, the Hubinator, and the wacky antics of my dog…

    6. What’s your preferred brow maintenance method? Sunday is Beauty Maintenance Day- they get plucked that day and that day only.

    7. Salty or sweet? Both please!

    8.Three desert island essentials? Water is pretty important. Internet access to get me off the island, and James Joyce’s Finnegan’s Wake. It will take you forever to figure out what he is writing, and before you know it- BAM!- your rescuers are there to save you.

    9. Favorite ’90s music? All of it. Seriously, some incredible music. Jagged Little Pill, anyone?

    10. Weekly goals: To get all my schoolwork done. Spring break cannot come fast enough….

  32. lolamd says:

    1. Mood: Okay. Did not get to sleep till 1 in the morning and had to be up by 6…So sleepy
    2. What’s your biggest hair concern? My hair is fine and limp so it doesn’t want to do anything unless I put product in it. So my biggest concern is trying to find products that will give my hair volume without overall stickiness.
    3. Orange lipstickl? Not for me
    4. What’s the wackiest piece of clothing you own? Sequin mini skirt..is that considered wacky?
    5. When things get crazy in your life, how do you keep your sanity? Watch bad movies ie 3 weekends ago so much crap was going on in my life that I watched Step Up 1, 2 and 3. Corny I know but I love the dancing.
    6. What’s your preferred brow maintenance method? Threading. Although the woman i go to normally just butchered my left brow so now I have to fill in with a pencil.
    7. Salty or sweet? sweet
    8.Three desert island essentials? Water, sunscreen and my itouch
    9. Favorite ’90s music? I would say all of it
    10. Weekly goals: Eat healthy, no candy for the week and hit the gym

  33. Emily says:

    No joke, have had Lil’ Kim’s Crush on You in my head for over a week now, no clue where it came from. “So I look slick, in my six, with my Christian LaCroix”

    1. Mood: Antsy, just want this day to be ovah!
    2. What’s your biggest hair concern? Frizz & I’m paranoid that I’m losing my hair
    3. Orange lipstick? No way
    4. What’s the wackiest piece of clothing you own?
    5. When things get crazy in your life, how do you keep your sanity? I don’t do a very good job at this, guess I should look into something
    6. What’s your preferred brow maintenance method? Plucking
    7. Salty or sweet? Definitely sweet, although reese’s pieces in popcorn is pretty amazing
    8. Three desert island essentials? Water, my nook and sunscreen
    9. Favorite ’90s music? Admitting you have a problem is the first step, right? Backstreet Boys & NSync. Now what’s step 2?
    10. Weekly goals: Stick to my healthy eating plan for a whole week!

  34. Kate & Zena says:

    1. Mood:
    Waiting for the Coca-Cola to kick in,

    2. What’s your biggest hair concern?
    I would say trying to get my hair model worthy shininess back because it’s gone down the drain (literally). It’s really finding products that can deal with fine super oily hair and not leave it unshiny or split my hair (ha! I found a way to work the first one in!). I think Aussie is calling my name again!

    3. Orange lipstickl?
    On this cool-toned skin? NO.

    4. What’s the wackiest piece of clothing you own?
    My super loose crop top that has an artistic-like face on it that came with like a skin tight semi-sheer racerback tanktop that I wear that shirt. I never wear that shirt alone. It’s too freakin’ sheer!

    5. When things get crazy in your life, how do you keep your sanity?
    I don’t. I break down and cry. Literally, I don’t handle craziness very well!

    6. What’s your preferred brow maintenance method?
    Brow Bar! I’m forbidden tweezers (I have trichitillomania) and wax rips off three layers of skin. I guess for me it’s spending the money to have the under hair maintained that way!

    7. Salty or sweet?
    Depends how I’m feeling. I generally love both!

    8.Three desert island essentials?
    A) My dad’s huge camping backpack (includes sunscreen, food, water, tent, sleeping bag, fire starting materials, bug fighting junk, water purification thingie, cell phone, GPS unit, books…y’know, survival stuff)
    B) Makeup bag (includes Katie’s makeup essentials so I can look good when the rescuers come get me)
    C) One of Dad’s Hunting Hunting Knives (to cut down down brush to start fire so survival people can get me. I’m not living on that island for long, dude.)
    Hey, you said THREE things, I gave you three things. You never said three individual items.

    9. Favorite ’90s music?
    Spice Girls! They fueled my life.

    10. Weekly goals:
    Finish International Women’s Literature Project
    Sleeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeep.

  35. Rachel says:

    1. Mood: OK…I’m still pretty out of it and it’s after lunch! I need to wake-up!
    2. What’s your biggest hair concern? Lately it’s been that my hair is breaking off, or falling out all together. I’m trying to up my protein intake and take vitamins. ugh.
    3. Orange lipstickl? No way…anything with orange it in doesn’t work with my skin tone at all.
    4. What’s the wackiest piece of clothing you own? Hmmm…probably my big dolman sleeved sweater. It makes me feel so glamorous, but I’m too embarassed to wear it because it looks like I’m trying too hard!
    5. When things get crazy in your life, how do you keep your sanity? lists for sure. It really puts things in perspective and makes me realize that I really can make things happen and get things done.
    6. What’s your preferred brow maintenance method? Plucking. No waxing for me!
    7. Salty or sweet? Salty for sure. A big vat of chips and salsa sounds good about now…or wait, melted cheddar on a sourdough…yum. Stop me!
    8.Three desert island essentials? Lip balm, PJs and my iPhone (please tell me I’ll get 3G connection on this said desert island?!)
    9. Favorite ’90s music? En Vogue for sure. Ah, memories. Bel Biv DeVoe, Brandy, Green Day etc. etc.
    10. Weekly goals: I have a busy week ahead…I’m moderating 9 interview panels, doing my taxes, eye doctor appointment and my night class. All good things, but busy busy. I need to stay focused and if I can actually get one good night’s sleep (I haven’t slept through the night in a while) I’d be a super happy girl!

  36. Lorena says:

    1. Mood:
    - Not so great, but I’m hangin’ in there. Big life changing decision ahead, and it’s one I wish I really didn’t have to make =/

    2. What’s your biggest hair concern?
    - I have very long kinda wavy frizzy hair. I typically part it down the middle but sometimes I’ll do a little side part to change it up. My biggest concern is that when I don’t straighten or style my hair that I’ll end up looking like a chick from the Manson family. Yikes!

    3. Orange lipstickl?
    - Never! I just don’t think I have the lip shape to do a bold lip. I did a red lip once and I looked like the Joker. When I smile my top lip practically disappears. Not cute. But I do a mean neutral pink lip though!

    4. What’s the wackiest piece of clothing you own?
    - Hmmmm, with clothing I usually like to play it safe. I end up doing a lot of black, but I have a ton of band shirts that have all kinds of stuff on it. But I do like to mix it up with my shoes. I just bought an amazing pair of black patent leather Mary Jane pumps with spikes all over the back of the heel and the strap. I wish I could wear them every day!

    5. When things get crazy in your life, how do you keep your sanity?
    - Depends on where I’m at. Usually if it’s at home, a good run followed by a great shower and a glass of wine can calm me down and all that time usually helps me sort things out. If it’s at work, then I either come here :) or go to various funny sites while drinking a nice cup of hot coffee or tea and I close my door to get away from whatever is driving me nuts (usually my supervisor!). Oh, and a calendar usually helps me keep everything organized. I have three hehehe

    6. What’s your preferred brow maintenance method?
    - I’ll pluck whenever it starts to look like I’ve got two angry catapillars growing on my face and I usually get ‘em waxed about once every few months. I would normally go monthly but my salon is an hour away! Stupid small town I live in =/

    7. Salty or sweet?
    - Depends on the mood, and (tmi alert!) whatever I’m craving during PMS time. It’s always one or the other though…or sometimes both!

    8.Three desert island essentials?
    - iPhone, bottled water, and a hair elastic because if it’s hot, I know I won’t be able to stand my hair in my face!

    9. Favorite ’90s music?
    - Oh girl! This is my area! Pearl Jam, Offsping, Alice in Chains, Social Distortion, Gin Blossoms, Pantera, Lit, Corrosion of Conformity, Pennywise, BAD RELIGION (fav band ever!), Bush, No Doubt, Soundgarden, The Ataris, Rancid, NIN, Tool, Strung Out, Face to Face, Staind, and the list goes on and on! Man the 90′s was the best.

    10. Weekly goals:
    - To survive this week
    - To work hard at my relationship
    - To suck it up and move to week 3 of the C25K. I don’t know why but running for 3 minutes straight just seems scary!

  37. Chris25 says:

    1. Mood: A little drained. I’ve got 3 papers to write, each one about 6 pages long.
    2. What’s your biggest hair concern?: Frizzies. When it gets too oily or exposed to humidity it becomes a problem.
    3. Orange lipstick?: I’m easing into it. I may not ever wear neon orange, though.
    4. What’s the wackiest piece of clothing you own?: A strapless dress with black and white stripes on the top and a poofy white skirt. My friend persuaded me to buy it. I was in an impulsive mood. I have never worn the damn thing. It doesn’t feel like me and I should have known better.
    5. When things get crazy in your life, how do you keep your sanity?: Music and makeup!
    6. What’s your preferred brow maintenance method?: Threading once a month, plucking in between.
    7. Salty or sweet?: A lot of both! Seriously, I would say salty.
    8.Three desert island essentials?: Sunblock, water, and Buffy comics.
    9. Favorite ’90s music?: Too many to list! Alice in Chains, “Freedom ’90″ by George Michael, Roxette, Michael Jackson, and many others.
    10. Weekly goals: get through school this week and plan my birthday party! (on Saturday)

  38. lo says:

    1. Mood: Mostly relaxed. I’m on spring break, even though I’m stuck studying all the time haha.
    2. What’s your biggest hair concern? Same as yours, Karen! Mine is wavy and really unruly, so the wrong cut makes me look like a brillo-y triangle. Luckily, I’ve had the same stylist for almost 10 years, and she knows my hair (and my tendency to want something new every time!).
    3. Orange lipstickl? Maybe a juicy orange gloss, but nothing opaque.
    4. What’s the wackiest piece of clothing you own? I’ve bought some pretty silly stuff for costumes and whatnot, but the wackiest has got to by my old show choir (before Glee made it cool) dress… silver, a-line, square neck (ew) and COVERED in those holographic sequin-like dot things. If I still fit in it, I’d totally try to work it into every “theme” party ever. It’s horrific.
    5. When things get crazy in your life, how do you keep your sanity? I find time to be alone.
    6. What’s your preferred brow maintenance method? Plucking… I luckily don’t need too much maintenance besides tweezing the occasional stray.
    7. Salty or sweet? Either one… I love snacks!
    8.Three desert island essentials? Endless fresh water supply, SPF lip balm, a great-fitting swim suit. I mean, seriously, if I have to do all that survival stuff, I do NOT want to have to keep hiking my top up!
    9. Favorite ’90s music? ‘N Sync, Spice Girls, Destiny’s Child.
    10. Weekly goals: STUDY like a fool. I have a chem exam the Monday night I come back from break, and a bio exam the following Tuesday morning. So I basically have to be an expert at everything by Monday.

  39. Stef Smith says:

    1. Mood: Currently a little sleepy, but it’ll go away soon.
    2. What’s your biggest hair concern? Shine! I want shiny hair! I used a gloss on it, and it’s not as shiny as I want and it’s ticking me off!
    3. Orange lipstickl? Not for me, I’m fair skinned.

    1. Mood: Doing ok. Had a crazy hour and a half morning, but now its mellowing down. Got a lot of things to pull together, so making a killer playlist and going to rock it!
    2. What’s your biggest hair concern? Haircuts, forsure! Everyone that looks at me thinks “hey, thin white girl hair”. NOT SO. I have thick thick thick hair and if cut badly, its just terrible. I found one great stylist.. and then she moved 12 hours away. :( so I think I found one finally(after 3 years of searching!) that can do an acceptable job.
    3. Orange lipstickl? I wish! I have super pale, freckly skin, and I just don’t like the look of orange on me. Clothes wise, makeup wise, hair wise. But I love it on warmer skin tones!
    4. What’s the wackiest piece of clothing you own? hmm probably this black summer dress that has dragonflies all over it.
    5. When things get crazy in your life, how do you keep your sanity? Same. Lists! I make lists like you would not believe. And Music.
    6. What’s your preferred brow maintenance method? Plucking. I feel like I have more control plucking than waxing. I do it probably once a week when I get out of the shower.
    7. Salty or sweet? I’m more of a salty person, but I love mixing peanut M&M’s with popcorn.
    8.Three desert island essentials? Sunscreen, Drinking Water, and a good book. Maybe a helicopter as well :)

    2. Biggest hair concern: there are too many… but I think I’m gonna say thinning hair… eek.
    3. Orange lipstick?!: If we are talking about orange orange (so no undertones), only when I’m tan. When I’m pale, it looks as if it was drawn on my lips by Paint…

But I have my eyebrows waxed by a ‘pro’ regularly (they are really-really thick naturally, they don’t even have an arch… waxing is the only way to get rid of those annoying little hairs above and under the desired arch quickly :D)
    7. Salty or sweet? I have a really sweet tooth, so I think I’d go with sweet… but that doesn’t mean I don’t crave salty stuff every now and then…

I love You get what you give from The Radicals, Lemon Tree from Fool’s Garden… and Nirvana and R.E.M. and Oasis and Whitney and… a bunch of Eurovision songs and abunch of random Hungarian songs :P. Oh, and Spice Girls and BSB for nostalgic reasons, I loved them so much when I was little!
