Makeup and Beauty Blog Monday Poll, Nov. 28

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. 196. I’ve always enjoyed reading your answers in the comments, and I hope you enjoy reading mine.
  1. Mood:
  2. Quietly overjoyed. :) The last four days have been hectic, so I’m relishing the sound of silence right now.

  3. What do you miss?
  4. Having long stretches of downtime, like I had back when I was in school. I also miss not having any/many responsibilities. Now it’s always go-go-go! And it seems like there’s always something to worry about, ya know?

  5. Which makeup counters do you visit first when you swing by a Nordstrom or other department store?
  6. MAC, Chanel and NARS, usually in that order.

  7. Which would you choose if you could have all of the eyeshadows you could ever want, lipsticks or blushes?
  8. OOH! Tough question…but I think I’d go with the blushes. Blush is a makeup must for me. Without it I look exhausted, no matter how much sleep I’ve had.

  9. What would you like to do on your next birthday?
  10. Sleep in, and then spend the afternoon surfing in a tropical ocean. Then, a big meal that night with all of my friends and family, and an ice cream cake from Baskin-Robbins for dessert.

  11. Are you a Mac or a PC?
  12. Mac all the way! I'm a Mac

  13. Have you ever seen a ghost?
  14. I think I have… It was about 10 years ago at my parents’ house, and it was terrifying!

  15. List three good things about your life right now:
  16. 1) I enjoy my job, 2) I like where I live, and 3) I just realized that I can fit into a pair of pants again that have been too tight for the past three years.

  17. What’s something that you think tastes better fried?
  18. Potatoes. And they’re not simply better. They’re epic!

  19. Weekly goals:
  20. To tidy up my desk, which has gotten so out-of-control messy that I can’t see any of the desk’s actual surface area anymore; to write in my journal each and every morning; and to pay some extra attention to Tabs. He’s been acting up lately…

Back again after a long weekend, friend. :) How’s it going out there? Anyone else suffering from a holiday food hangover? I think I’m still digesting my dinner from Thursday, LOL! Oh, so much stuffing, mashed potatoes and pecan pie…



What was your favorite dish on Thanksgiving? Do tell!

If you feel a little out of it this morning, you’re not alone. Sometimes it helps to ease your way back into the grind with something fun like the Monday Poll.

Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,

Karen

You know, I had SO much to ask/comment on last week, but I only have one thing to say about last night’s mid-season finale – I had some very minor quibbles with this episode, but I overlooked them because this ep was so. f’ing. amazing. Best episode of this weak season by far. Those last 15-20 minutes made me howl.

    • Karen says:

      Hi Katie,

      It got totally Lord of the Flies at the end, didn’t it? Did you scream when you saw Sophia walk out of the barn? OH MY!

      • Kimberly says:

        A co-worker of mine ruined the ending of the episode for me, but I still was shocked to see poor little Sophia. :( I can honestly say I never saw that one coming, I always thought they’d find her! I agree with you Katie, best episode yet!

    • Karen says:

      Hi DalaLuz,

    10. Weekly goals: probably assembling the Ikea sofa that has been sitting around for a few weeks and finishing projects that are due next week

    • Karen says:

      Oh Let, I feel you on the Ikea. I have two sets of drawers that’ve been sitting around for a YEAR and I still have yet to put them together. Supposedly Ikea offers a service where they go out to your house and put stuff together for you. I might have to break down because there’s no way I’m going to spend an afternoon sifting through the 300 different screws. WAH!

      • Let says:

        Ikea outsources the assembling service. I tried contacting the assembling company (I’m in Seattle btw), but they wanted to charge me more than half the price of the sofa itself. No way I’m gonna pay that much…

        Hopefully the assembly fee is cheaper in California. :-) Ikea’s wooden furniture is tricky to assembly. I swear the size of the holes on my bookcase are very small compared to the size of the screws…

    2. What do you miss? Curling up with my dog and spending time with my extended family. I miss my dog dearly on super sunny days cold wintery days when we get to go for a nice walk long walk. He gots to eat any snow he finds while I get to sip my coffee and rub his head along the way.
    3. Which makeup counters do you visit first when you swing by a Nordstrom or other department store? We have Holt Renfrew and The Bay up here, so I usually stop at MAC, Chanel, Dior and NARS. If at Holt’s, I stop by Armani, Bobbi Brown and Shu Uemura.
    4. Which would you choose if you could have all of the eyeshadows you could ever want, lipsticks or blushes? Probably blush because it would last longer. Then mixed with a bit of chapstick, it becomes an instant lip stain.
    5. What would you like to do on your next birthday? Funny you should ask, mine is next week ;) I am thankfully off, so I will sleep in and probably go for an easy run in the morning. I am thinking of going to the Chocoholic buffet at the Sutton Place Hotel, or the seafood appetizer buffet and dessert buffet at the Hotel Vancouver. Followed by a movie and perhaps a hot chocolate to end the day.
    6. Are you a Mac or a PC? PC. I’m used to it! I do have plans to put Ubuntu on it shortly. Just depends on timing.
    7. Have you ever seen a ghost? When my Lola passed away, the nightlight in the hallway between her old room and the bathroom became extremely bright. She hadn’t lived with us for several years, but I think she came back to watch me until my mom came back from Manila. When my mom came back, the nightlight went back to its normal brightness. While I didn’t see her, I felt her presence.
    8. List three good things about your life right now: My cousin had her babies, so I have two new angels in my life: Sophia & Seraphina. I have a savings to draw from if I need to use it. I have quite a bit of muscle definition now! Including my abs :D I used to be such a chubster when I was younger.
    9. What’s something that you think tastes better fried? As much as I like fried food, I don’t tend to want to eat it since I know it isn’t good for me. I don’t mind yam fries, but I prefer them baked because of the calories

  44. 1. Mood:
    Hot. As in weather-wise. The weather’s boiling where I am right now haha!

    2. What do you miss?
    Right now I am missing shopping. It’s a really small island where I am right now (Where I grew up) and there’s a serious lack of shopping that I could do here. It doesn’t matter what type- window shopping or actual shopping, I miss it! :P

    3. Which makeup counters do you visit first when you swing by a Nordstrom or other department store?
    I try to check them all out, but the usual is Dior, Chanel, Estee Lauder, Clarins.

    4. Which would you choose if you could have all of the eyeshadows you could ever want, lipsticks or blushes?
    I think I’d take lipsticks. I’m still really new (And bad) at applying eyeshadows, and my face is always flushed so I think I’ll pass the blushers.

    5. What would you like to do on your next birthday?
    Hmm I don’t know yet :) Probably go on a holiday? But by my next birthday I would’ve moved to Singapore for my Masters degree, so I’d probably still be settling in. Maybe a nice touristy jaunt around the island?

    6. Are you a Mac or a PC?
    While I do like both in their own ways (They have their pros and cons, come on) I’ve been using PC all my life haha!

    7. Have you ever seen a ghost?
    If you believe in the third eye, then I do see them pretty often. But it’s not “always on” or as vivid as you see in movies. I have to “tune in” and usually it’s more of a shadowy figure, but you can “feel” how it’s like.

    8. List three good things about your life right now:
    a. My family
    b. My boyfriend
    c. My pets

    9. What’s something that you think tastes better fried?

    10. Weekly goals:
    Pretty much survive! It’s going to be a rather hectic week here :)
