Makeup and Beauty Blog Monday Poll, March 9

Published in: Just For Fun


  1. Mood:
  2. Tired. My body’s all twisted from the time change. I couldn’t fall asleep and stayed up late reading Shake Your Beauty. Now I’m paying for it.

  3. Sippin’ on:
  4. Private stock! My bad — spontaneous Notorious B.I.G lyrical moment (he’s on heavy iPod rotation).

    I’m really sipping on a cup of borderline gross coffee. Due to the no-sleep thing I accidentally poured about half a cup of powdered creamer into my cup. Belch!

  5. Eyes:
  6. I don’t have anything on ’em yet, but I’ll probably end up going with Benefit Creaseless Cream Shadow in Samba-dy Loves Me to perk up my tired eyes.

  7. Fragrance:
  8. Taking it back to the old school — uh, 1999 — with J’adore Dior!

  9. Current obsessions:
  10. Tevin Campbell (why, oh why?), 30 Rock, the daily Jumble, Girl Scout Thin Mint cookies

  11. Best moment o’ the weekend:
  12. Waiting at the movies to buy tickets for Watchmen and having George Lucas, who lives in the area, saunter up and stand right behind me in line. Sci-fi nerds that we are, both El Hub and were so star struck that neither of us could say anything. I felt so Six Degrees of Yoda.

    Is it too much to hope that some of G. Lucas’ creativity was transferred through proximity?

  13. Outfit:
  14. Currently rocking the suburbs in a fetching outfit of white shorts, a pink long-sleeved top and black zip-up fleece, aka my jammies

  15. Mascara:
  16. Clinique High Impact Curling Mascara

  17. _____ makes me happy:
  18. Kind people, sunny late afternoons and lavender-scented body products

  19. Weekly goals:
  20. Resist the temptation of junk food, do stomach crunches at least three times this week, catch up on my endless stack of things to read

Girls, you know how we roll on Mondays! Let me know what you’re up to by coping the empty list and pasting it with your answers in the comments.

It’s not the waterproof formula (which is a pain to get off) but the non-waterproof formula is practically waterproof as I’ve watched three chich flicks that ended in tears and cried a bit when I found an old photo of my previous dog on my phone and that mascara doesn’t budge. I highly recommend it.

    Mood: Ugh. I’ve been a little sick and my allergies have been acting up all weekend. On top of that, I’ve got a canker sore back far in my throat again which is bad enough by itself, but the nasal drip is killing me this time. Also… I woke up around 10 minutes ago even though I meant to wake up at 10:30am… so I’m a bit annoyed and disappointed.
    Sippin’ on: Nothing yet, (eating porridge) but it will be copious amounts of peppermint tea.
    Eyes: Nothing yet, but I’m going to try out my new EDM pressed spring shadow trio today. I think I’m more excited to try out my new flat top buffer though, lol.
    Fragrance: Will be TBS Moroccan Rose edt.
    Current obsessions: NAIL POLISH. OMG. I always sort of knew of Essie and Zoya, but finding Essie minis at Sally’s for $3.25 and Zoya’s polish exchange have got me totally obsessed lol.
    Best moment o’ the weekend: I made an excellent Chinese seafood porridge over the weekend with mushrooms, Japanese sweet potato, scallops, fried tofu and green onions. SO and I added surf clams, pickled squid, spicy pollack roe and barbequed eel on top. It was pretty amazing. Even more amazing was realizing I’d made enough food for the next 3 days lol.
    Outfit: Ha ha ha… that reminds me, I need to do laundry. I’ll probably just wear jeans and a T today.
    Mascara: Will be Maybelline Full and Soft.
    _____ makes me happy: Hot tea, bright colors, good ice cream make me happy.
