Makeup and Beauty Blog Monday Poll, Nov. 16

Published in: Just For Fun

kindness-is-everything

  1. Mood:
  2. Still a little out of it this morning, but I feel pretty good. I didn’t sleep well last night, so the old mental motor’s taking a while to warm up.

  3. Do you make your bed?
  4. Yup, every morning. It’s an easy way to start the day with a minor sense of accomplishment.

  5. Have you started holiday shopping?
  6. No! I need to start soon, though.

  7. Favorite fruit?
  8. I heart all kinds, but persimmons are really floating my boat right now, yum!

  9. Eyes/lips/cheeks:
  10. It’s a Clinique Black Tie Violets day for me.

  11. In what ways are you like your mother?
  12. We have very different personalities, but my mom and I are both total clean freaks.

  13. Do you like to dance?
  14. LOVE IT!

  15. Long or short nails?
  16. Long nails look so pretty to me, but I think shorter nails are just more practical. It’s a little harder to type with long nails.

  17. Outfit:
  18. I’m squeezing in a quick morning workout, so I’m covered in stretchy stuff that wicks — black Lululemon workout pants, a white tank top and black sweatshirt.

  19. Weekly goals:
  20. Eat sensibly (that means no more dark chocolate stars), work on managing my time better than last week, start a new filing system, research window treatments and do some planning for the holidays.

Good morning, ladies! Happy Monday.

I feel like I’ve been up forever… This morning around 4:30 Tabs went to work trying to open the cabinets under the sink, pawing and scratching at it for reasons unknown. I think he’s looking for CS Lewis’ magic wardrobe as a means to escape.

After I shouted at him to knock it off, he jumped on the bed, plopped on top of my head and started purring, completely ignoring the fact that I was mad. Typical.

Hope you have a great day today. While you tackle that first (or second) cup of coffee, take a second to check in with the Monday Poll. Just copy the list below, and paste it in the comments with your answers. :)

    2. Do you make your bed? Yup. It makes the whole room look cleaner to me.
    3. Have you started holiday shopping? I kind of forgot it’s November already… better get on that!
    4. Favorite fruit? Mangoes! Or maybe cherries.
    5. Eyes/lips/cheeks: UD Sin, chapstick, Everyday Minerals Soft Touch

    1. Mood: relieved, I think. Finally sent in my doctoral application. It’s done… until the interview.

    2. Do you make your bed? Eep. No.

    3. Have you started holiday shopping? Yes!

    4. Favorite fruit? Honeycrisp apples are really doing it for me right now, but generally I like fresh cherries, strawberries, watermelon… summer fruit. ;-)

    5. Eyes/lips/cheeks: I swiped my eyelashes with Maybelline Volume mascara before I ran out the door, but that was it today. That’s what I get for staying in bed so late!

    6. In what ways are you like your mom? I can laugh about nearly anything.

    7. Do you like to dance? Yep. If I’m dancing, it means I’m happy.

    8. Long or short nails? Somewhere in-between. My fingers are kind of short and stubby, so slightly longer nails make them look normal.

    9. Outfit: Gap 1969 jeans, green sweater with a gray cardigan, moccasins, and some teal stone earrings

    10. Weekly goals: Give myself a deadline for some big choices that HAVE to be made ASAP.

      Hi Toni,

      Oh, that’s smart! I might do some online shopping then…

      That’s so cute that you and your mom love watching football. Do you guys watch games together?

    Major aye! Could use a great week.

    9. Outfit: Again, see answer 1 – yoga pants and a t shirt
    10. Weekly goals: Find a new career!

    You can’t really blame Tabs. I mean, isn’t the whole reason people get cats because they purr and snuggle?

  7. nai says:

  13. Jacks says:

    Hey Karen,

    My midterm’s for Inorganic Chem…yippee!

    You know, I’ve never really tried out Vitamin C tablets. I usually chug orange juice and hot tea. Do you find that the Vitamin C helps a lot?
    .-= Jacks’s last blog post… Review: YSL Parisienne =-.

    • Karen says:

      Hi Jacks,

      Sounds like fun… okay, not really. :)

      I think Vitamin C helps. I drink Emergen-C (the tangerine or raspberry flavor… yum!) every day during the cold/flu season. And the moment I start feeling sick I also take Ester C pills and start sucking on Cold-EEZE zinc lozenges, which I think helps too. I’ve heard that raw garlic is also good to fight emerging colds, but have yet to try it.

      I’m kind of a workaholic so I don’t like getting sick at ALL and do everything I can to prevent it!

We also have a love affair for shoes & purses. Both of our closets are packed with them. ;)

    Figure out how and when I’m going home for Thanksgiving, eventually starting my grad school application process, usual school stuff.

  24. Catherine says:

    1. Mood Apprehensive. I wasn’t feeling very well this morning and had to go back to bed missing a class and a meeting… now I’m up and feeling better but I have two large homework assignments due tomorrow morning that I really don’t want to work on.

    9. Outfit: Professional looking brown/green/turquoise plaid Roxy pants, brown tank top, dark fuschia babydoll style sweater.

    10. Weekly goals: Survive! I didn’t quite make 8hrs of sleep a night last week… and I know it’s not quite realistic for this week. I’d like to make close to 8hrs a night though, get all my work done, and start organizing my studying for finals!

    I can’t believe the year is almost over! I’ve been frazzled at work, but just got back from a great 2 weeks in Mexico. All is well with the world! How’s the new condo?

    • Karen says:

      Hi Karen4,

      It’s good! I still have a lot to get done though. I’m still partially living out of boxes (sucks) and I need to get blinds/curtains.

      Two weeks in Mexico? I’m so jealous! Where did you go?

  41. Kate & Zena says:

    Karen,

    Well, I had two choices really–biology with lab or geography for this semester. I can’t do bio w/lab because I’m hideously, hideously allergic to formaldehyde (aka the preservative in dissection animals) so I chose geography. I took a geo class my senior year of hs and liked it but PHYSICAL geography is soooo boring. Normally, I can bribe myself into staying interested (ie. self-fulfilling prophecy. I enjoy this class, I enjoy this class) but today I just couldn’t do it for some reason. I totally spaced out after about an hour and started making cranes and frogs out of sticky notes!

    No, Queen Z isn’t in a sweater at the moment. She’s relaxing/napping on the couch after apparently having a bad day. Mom cleaned the carpets today to finally rid of skunk smell and poor Z is terrified of carpet cleaners and vacuums. It’s the noise more than the actual machines.

    4. Favorite fruit? I’m like you, I love all kinds of fruit, but my current favorite is grapefruit. It’s weird, I saw them at the store, and I picked some up, and they’re really good!

    5. Eyes/lips/cheeks: Eyes: Some Rubenesque paint pot with a little Sin eyeshadow from UD on top, a smidge of black eyeliner, mascara. Lips: Some random pineapple lipgloss from Bath & Body Works. Cheeks: NARS Orgasm? Lol, can’t remember

    6. In what ways are you like your mom? We are both people who like to interact with other people, we have the same social skills and sense of humor. We’re pretty alike :)

    7. Do you like to dance? Yes I do! I just had a dance at school and it was really fun dancing with my friends. I used to do like jazz and tap and stuff but I stopped that once I got to high school…hopefully I’ll start again.

    8. Long or short nails? Long in theory, but I always bite them. I know, bad me! I just can’t help myself. But my nail bed is long so it doesn’t look weird.

    Hi Karen! No. :( My dad said he couldn’t bring it after all so he is mailing me a check so we can buy a used one. I feel bad taking money from my dad but I’ll pay him back eventually. He’s got enough to spare, but at my age it just feels wrong, you know? We felt confident about moving because Daniel had some jobs lined up and they all fell through (he does contract work, IT stuff) so we’re stressing the money thing right now. He’s got something more permanent coming up starting in 2010, but December is going to be rough…
