Makeup and Beauty Blog Monday Poll, May 9

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. 169. I’ve always enjoyed reading your answers in the comments, and I hope you enjoy reading mine.
  1. Mood:
  2. Peachy keen! I slept 10 hours last night and feel like a whole new girl.

  3. One great thing about getting older?
  4. After you experience a couple of life challenges, you start figuring sh*z out. Eventually, you’re not so green anymore. Like, when I was younger, I had a really hard time handling unexpected things (both in work and life), but now I feel like I can handle the curve balls much better than I could then.

  5. What color do you use most in your eye makeup and why?
  6. Warm orangey browns like MAC Soft Brown, for sure. I wear them practically every day in the crease to create depth and to add contrast.

  7. What’s one thing your mom was right about?
  8. Sometimes, it’s better to just keep it to yourself.

  9. What’s your favorite book series?
  10. The last one I really loved was The Hunger Games, but when I was a kid I was all about Sweet Valley High.

  11. Your last sweet treat?
  12. Yesterday at brunch I had a whole wheat pumpkin bar with cream cheese frosting, and MAN, it was so good!

  13. Do you collect anything?
  14. Besides makeup, shoes and the pounds of tabby cat hair on my clothes, not much. If I had more time and room, I’d like to collect vintage maps (love them) and old books.

  15. Seersucker clothing — yea or nay?
  16. A definite yea!

  17. Your go-to eye cream?
  18. Korres Quercetin & Oak Eye Cream. I’m already on my fourth bottle! It’s hydrating, absorbs quickly and layers well beneath makeup.

  19. Weekly goals:
  20. To focus on ONE thing at a time (I’m trying not to multitask so much), eat a salad every day and run at least four times before Saturday.

Hey, cutie. Happy Monday! If you have a moment, will you stop by and let me know what’s going on in your neck of the woods in today’s Monday Poll?

    7. Do you collect anything? Well, other than cat hair…nope. I am a big declutterer, and I collected a ton of things (mouse figurines, tea sets, dolls) when I was a girl. Now I am the one who gives/donates/throws all that stuff away and keeps it to things I use.

  35. kalcedon says:

    1. Mood: It was quite sunny-happy in the afternoon, but now, I’m kind of sad (family soap opera in the background…)
    2. One great thing about getting older?Collecting experiences, getting to know lots of people as years go by, learning about their stories… their conditions (may it be their family background, their financial status, their psychological status etc.), their lives, their decisions… and learning that not everything is purely black and white… and not to judge other people when you don’t know enough about them.
    3. What color do you use most in your eye makeup and why? Beige/champaigne, different kinds of browns (mostly chocolate-ish colors or bronzy ones) and warmer greens.
    4. What’s one thing your mom was right about? There are lots. For example, that we have to be ready for everything in life, and be awware of everything can happen. Also, that you should be really careful and thorough when you give a name to your child (and that’s soooo true).
    5. What’s your favorite book series? I’m not a fan of book series as I’m getting older… I like my books as complex wholes… when I was a teen, I was a huuuuuge fan of The Princess Diaries, though :D.
    6. Your last sweet treat? The normal ice-cream at Burger King (it was really hot today, and it’s on bargain now :D)
    7. Do you collect anything? Ooooooh, I’m really much a collector type. I collect stamps and card calendars-those two are my biggest collections. I used to collect telephone cards, too, but now, as everyone and their mother have a cell phone, it’s kind of useless. And I collect little souvenir clay mugs from every journey, and postcards and a certain type of sightseeing pin (but those collections are not that big due to my few oppportunities to travel)… oh, and I collect every kind of paper memorabilia… brochures, tickets (theatre, exhibition, public transport), pictures… so… you name it… :D.
    8. Seersucker clothing-yea or nay? Nay for me. I don’t like the material.
    9. Your go-to eye cream: I don’t use eye-cream yet.
    10 Weekly goals: It’s Eurovision weeeeeeeeeeek! (for those of you who don’t know: it’s an annual event in Europe, every country which wants to participate-mostly from Europe, but the only criteria is that the country has to be a part of EBU, aka European Broadcast Union, so that’s why per se Israel can take part-sends a song and a performer, and they have a battle… and all countries’ residents vote… I’m a Eurovision FREAK, I’m sorry… I follow the events from the first song chosen :D. Then, I prepare some Avon hauling (I just became a rep, and I need to compile my first order) and some dollar store hauling (I’ve seen beautiful lipsticks there… in boxes, which isn’t so common for cheap stuff o_O). Oh, and a cinema on Friday… I’ve won a ticket for an art film (as a part of a film week or what) :D.

I’m going skydiving a few hours after my graduation ceremony, so I’m doing little airplanes, parachutes, and screaming faces on my nails. :)

  38. Nina says:

    1. Mood: Happy! Besides a little headache and seriously parched lips, I feel good.

    4. What’s one thing your mom was right about? Actually, I never got to meet my mom. She died when I was little and my grandma raised me. So she was my mom, I never saw it any other way. And she was the sweetest, nicest, most caring woman on earth for me. She always approached me with a loving and understanding attitude and taught me that such a behavior could make all the difference in the world. And that’s the best thing she ever taught me, it never failed. I’m sorry it’s a bit too long, but I guess I’m a little sentimental about this because I miss her so much.

  39. Vijaya says:

    1. Mood: I just finished crying and feel like I’m going to try. One of my dermatologists’ assistants was really rude to me for literally no reason (I hadn’t even said anything to her). I don’t want to repeat what she said, but when I told one of the other assistants, she told her boss, so hopefully it gets handled appropriately.

    it’s bedtime, so i’m ebullient :) it’s been a nice day

    you like yourself better & you don’t wait around
    for other people to make you happy.

    3. What color do you use most in your eye makeup and why?
    browns, because that’s such a safe color for my olive skin
    & brown eyes. because if i wear any colors other than brown
    or neutrals i feel too “done” and therefore fake. some people
    look so good with lots of eye stuff on, but i don’t feel comfortable
    with what that looks like on me. i’m pretty introverted (and i like it!)
    and i’m really liking champagne peaches, too. very glam, and
    fuss-free.

    i really loved the anne rice vampire books when i was a

    this new crop of vampire stuff came out, i was secretly resentful
    because i thought she did a much better job of it.

    i had chocolate moose tracks ice cream today & loved
    every bite.

    7. Do you collect anything?
    i used to, but i’m too busy wiping things now. i’m the mom
    of a very active 3 yr old boy & it seems i spend my days wiping.
    i’m into very “plain” as a decor now because i know whatever
    i have will get stuff spilled on it or otherwise wrecked. motherhood
    can turn you into a minimalist!

    8. Seersucker clothing — yea or nay?
    i love the feel of a seersucker nightgown—taking a bubble bath
    in the summer & then going outside on the porch at dusk in
    your seersucker nightgown….very blissful~!!!

    i don’t have one. i’d like a lifting one, so i’m still researching.
