Makeup and Beauty Blog Monday Poll, Oct. 19

Published in: Just For Fun

101909-mbb-monday-poll

  1. Mood:
  2. Hyper-organized and hopeful — I’m surrounded by seven Post-It notes filled with lists, and dag-nabbit, all this stuff is gonna get done some how, some way.

  3. List three things currently inspiring you.
  4. 1) The weird, quirky writing on Woot!. 2) Projects like Operation Beautiful that use the interwebz to spread a positive message. 3) Piet Mondrian.

  5. MAC or PC?
  6. MAC attack!

  7. Gladiator sandals: yay or nay?
  8. Nay (I have long monkey toes).

  9. Lips and cheeks:
  10. Stuff from Chanel Holiday: Aqualumiere Lipstick in Maldives, Aqualumiere Gloss in Canari and Les Tissages Lames de Chanel.

  11. What’s one quality you like about yourself?
  12. I’m not afraid of what the beefy gym rats refer to as “the heavy lifting.” Even if something seems intimidating, I’ll jump in and find a way to get it done.

  13. Fragrance?
  14. D&G Rose the One (LOVE!) Eau de Parfum.

  15. Name three ways you’ve changed in the last 10 years.
  16. Hmm, 10 years ago I was 24, and since then I’ve changed in both positive and not-so-positive ways. Nowadays, I’m less afraid to tell people “No.” I also feel emotionally steadier and less volatile than I did back then. On the flip side, I’ve become more set in my ways — it’s definitely more of a challenge for me to deal with change now than it used to be.

  17. Outfit?
  18. Diva Bootcut Jeans from Old Navy (sooo comfy and affordable), brown cardigan sweater, dark purple tank top and brown peep-toe heels.

  19. Weekly goals:
  20. Keep my work life organized, deal with at least one moving box a day, avoid the temptation to cover my desk in clutter and exercise at least twice.

Hey, bootcut divas! 🙂 Happy Monday! It’s raining out here in Marin County, and even though it’s gray and gloomy outside, I’m feeling sunshiny on the inside.

I think a big part of it is this article I read yesterday on how to overcome burnout and stay motivated.

If you’ve been feeling run down or find yourself struggling with school/work, maybe give it a read.

Last night I took some time to process and really think about the tips and tricks from the article, and today I’m feeling very hopeful about the week to come.

Well, it looks like there’s a break in the storm, so I’m heading outside for a quick walk.

If you’ve got a little time to spare, can you take a moment to check in? I’d love to hear what’s going on in your neck of the woods.

Copy the list below, and paste it in the comments with your answers. Talk to you soon!

  18. Ann says:

    I saw that you listed D&G Rose The One and I’m definitely interested in it. Light Blue is my HG; I pretty much wear it every day. I absolutely hate perfumes that are too overpowering or overwhelmingly sweet. I know it sounds a little weird but do you think I’d like Rose The One? I’m interested in getting it in the Sephora F&F sale so I’d have to get it blind (or the blind version for smell) and I can’t seem to find any useful reviews online. Here are a few other perfumes I like for reference: Chanel Chance Eau Fraiche, MAC Naked Honey, Lancome Benghal (was a limited ed release). Thanks in advance for any advice you can give me. I’d really appreciate it!

    • Karen says:

      Hi Ann,

      It sounds like we have very similar perfume tastes. I actually wore D&G Light Blue on my wedding day, and I LOVE Chance Eau Fraiche and Naked Honey.

      As for Rose The One, I have a feeling you’ll like it. The scent is very light and not overwhelming at all. You know how some rose scents can be heavy? This one isn’t. It also has crisp notes (I smell apple) that keep it fresh. Let me know if you have any other questions!

  19. Stef says:

    1. Mood: Excited, finally bought a flat screen TV!

    2. List three things currently inspiring you. Ali Landry’s abs, this magnificent weather, and Splenda!

    5. Lips and cheeks: Finally got my chubby butt to the gym today, so no makeup, just Aveeno daily moisturizer in SPF 30!

    6. What’s one quality you like about yourself? I am loyal to an extreme when it comes to friends and family!

    7. Fragrance? None today, but I’m really liking coconut and vanilla essential oils.

    8. Name three ways you’ve changed in the last 10 years. I became a mother, twice. I’ve calmed down a whole heck of a lot. I’m not as scared as I was when I was 24, I’m not afraid of the consequences if I make a mistake like I was 10 years ago.

    9. Outfit? Again, I went to the gym. Pink yoga pants, black tank, socks and sneaks. I’m hoping that if I stay dressed this way, it will remind me to do some walking this afternoon.

    10. Weekly goals: Gym every day! Try to be a little more patient with the kids, find some tasty recipes to make that won’t break the bank and won’t make my butt grow!

    • Karen says:

      Hi Stef,

      If you find any tasty, non-butt growing recipes please share. I’m looking to get back into fighting shape and would love a few new dishes. If I find any I’ll post ’em up, too. 🙂

      Hi Ann,

      YAY! I was wondering if you were gonna get it. I’m so glad you love it. Wait — I gotta spray some on me right now!

      What other scents do you like? Oh, and if you like D&G you might dig their new fragrance anthology… La Lune is my fave out of the bunch.

    Oooh I’ll definitely have to look at La Lune. Another one of my favorites is Michael Kors Michael, which doesn’t really fit with the others (I don’t think) but I like it.
