Makeup and Beauty Blog Monday Poll, Oct. 24

Published in: Just For Fun


Totally lovin’ Warby Parker

  • 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. 191. I’ve always enjoyed reading your answers in the comments, and I hope you enjoy reading mine.
  1. Mood:
  2. Happy but still pretty tired. I got in late last night from Santa Monica, and as much as I enjoy traveling, the actual traveling part of it really wears me out. This pumpkin chai latte from Starbucks should help, though.

  3. If you could dine (for free) anywhere in the world tonight, where would it be?
  4. Tonight, more than New Orleans, Barcelona, Tuscany, Buenos Aires, Paris, Vancouver or Hong Kong, I’d choose my parents’ house in Union City, California, the sinigang capital of my world. :)

    Sinigang is a filipino sour tamarind stew made with rice, vegetables and fish, or another meat, and I couldn’t imagine anything better than having a big bowl of it for dinner tonight before curling up on the coach in front of the TV.

  5. Do you have any siblings?
  6. I do. I’m the eldest of two. My baby brother, who isn’t much of a baby anymore, turned 30 this year.

  7. If your pets could talk, what would they say about you?
  8. Probably, “B*tch, where’s my gravy?”

  9. Which one do you follow most often, your heart or your head?
  10. My heart. I’m a firm believer in going with your gut.

  11. What are three songs on your road trip playlist?
  12. Roam by the B52s, Interstate Love Song by Stone Temple Pilots and Michael Jackson’s Wanna Be Starting Something.

  13. Would you consider yourself renowned or famous for anything in particular?
  14. Well, folks do like my blueberry peach cobbler. Oh, and I’m pretty famous among my friends and family for being able to go from breezy to bratty in 10 seconds or less.

  15. Your favorite place for dessert?
  16. Without a doubt, Pinkberry! I miss it already…

  17. Scariest movie you’ve ever seen?
  18. GOOD GRIEF! I wish I could go back in time to when I was four years old and un-see Salem’s Lot. Never having seen that movie would have saved me many a sleepless night.

  19. Weekly goals:
  20. Get back into my exercise routine before I fall out of the habit entirely, get back into the habit of eating salads a few times per week, make some headway on my reading list, and smile! :)

Hey, friend. I’m glad to be typing this from my desk at home and not from my laptop in a hotel room. Things were kind of hectic over the weekend with The Beauty Social stuff, and I’m still getting back on track.



I think the beauty blogging panel went well yesterday, and I’m happy to report that I did NOT fall walking up to the stage, so that’s one recurring nightmare that has yet to transpire in real life. I’m afraid, though, that my bangs looked a little too Lloyd Christmassy… More on that in a few.

If you have a minute, stop by and say hi in this week’s Monday Poll. I feel like we haven’t talked in ages.

  • To complete the Monday Poll, just copy the following list, and paste it with your answers in the comments.



1. Mood:
2. If you could dine (for free) anywhere in the world tonight, where would it be?

If you’re having a tough Monday so far, hang in there, love! We’ll get through it, I swear.

Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,

    2. If you could dine (for free) anywhere in the world tonight, where would it be? Oh gosh, probably American Flatbread which is an organic pizza restaurant in several locations in New England.

    3. Do you have any siblings?
    I have one younger brother.
    4. If your pets could talk, what would they say about you?

    10. Weekly goals:
    Too many to list. I have lots of meetings and studying to do. Super frazzled.

  7. Heidi says:

    Tired. Just got back from a Whole Foods run and it seemed like everyone decided to spend their Monday morning there.

    2. If you could dine (for free) anywhere in the world tonight, where would it be?

    Nope, I’m an only child.

    “why does this woman not realize that she should be focused on me and my needs every minute of the day and night?”

    5. Which one do you follow most often, your heart or your head?

    I’ve unfortunately developed a habit of not trusting my heart so I over think things and follow my head too much.

    6. What are three songs on your road trip playlist?

    Bob Marley’s Could You Be Love, Lady Gaga’s Born this Way, and The Knack’s My Sharona.

    7. Would you consider yourself renowned or famous for anything in particular?

    8. Your favorite place for dessert?

    Crepevine — Nutella crepes, baby!

    9. Scariest movie you’ve ever seen?

    I try to avoid them at all costs but a date insisted that we go to see Gothika. I had to take several ladies room breaks to get away from all that disturbing stuff!

    Get some financial things figured out, lots of cooking lined up, and some miscellaneous errands.

  8. Adrienne says:

    1. Mood
    Tired but mellow, and a little disappointed. I wanted to have a productive day of cleaning, and some errands, but I ended up sleeping in by a loooot. I needed it though.
    2. If you could dine (for free) anywhere in the world tonight, where would it be?
    PARIS. I miss Paris so much, I don’t even care what I would eat, as long as I’m in Paris!

    3. Do you have any siblings?
    Nope, only, somewhat spoiled, child right here :P

    4. If your pets could talk, what would they say about you?
    “she never feeds me! She only feeds me twice a day and sometimes extra snacks, and treats when I’m good, but what about second breakfast, and lunch, and midnight second dinner?” and “why the eff are you making noise, its the middle of the day, I’m TRYING to SLEEP”
    Such a diva sometimes :)

    5. Which one do you follow most often, your heart or your head?
    I’d say it’s about 50/50, I follow my heart sometimes, but I’m an overthinker and sometimes end up taking a practical easy way out. 

    6. What are three songs on your road trip playlist?
    It depends who is going with me. But me and a good friend Kayla like ridiculous songs we can sing along to. That “colt 45″ song by afroman, Destiny’s Child or TLC, you know, fun stuff to keep us going, interested, and awake!

    7. Would you consider yourself renowned or famous for anything in particular?
    Meh, not really. Not yet :)

    8. Your favorite place for dessert?
    I loooove dessert, so I have a few. One that’s nearby is this place in Philly called Chocolate by the Bald Man. Though it’s so rich and chocolatey I seriously fear I will instantly develop diabetes. But now that I mentioned Paris above, I’m craving Crèpes flambés. Nom.

    9. Scariest movie you’ve ever seen?
    I actually have no idea….lol. I don’t watch a lot of scary movies

    Find a laundromat. The laundry room in my basement is creepy, and I’m sick of driving 20 minutes to a friends house and being a mooch.

    4. If your pets could talk, what would they say about you? My dog would say, “I love her, I love her, I love her, I’m gonna kiss her and lick her and jump on her, I love her, I love her, I love her!” My cats would say, “Ummm Helloooooo, we’ve looked at your cutely, now put food in us!”
    5. Which one do you follow most often, your heart or your head? Heart, always. I wanna use my head, but I lead with feelings.
    6. What are three songs on your road trip playlist? “We will rock you” by Queen, “Holiday” by Madonna, and “Forget you” by Cee-Lo!
    7. Would you consider yourself renowned or famous for anything in particular? I make a killer pecan pie at Thanksgiving and X-mas! Killer!!!
    8. Your favorite place for dessert? While I make a killer pecan pie, I don’t eat it. I have a slight allergy to sugar, so I don’t eat dessert.
    9. Scariest movie you’ve ever seen? ha ha ha Yeah, like I watch scary movies! The one that killed it for me, “Ringu” the original “The Ring.” The Japanese one. TERRIFYING!!!

    DITTO

    4. If your pets could talk, what would they say about you? I don’t have pets!

    6. What are three songs on your road trip playlist? No specifics – anything my the Beatles, Rolling Stones…just rock music to get me in the mood.

    7. Would you consider yourself renowned or famous for anything in particular? My butt. LOL, no joke! Everyone on both sides of my family agrees I have a nice butt!

    8. Your favorite place for dessert? Any of the ice cream shops in Solvang, CA!

    9. Scariest movie you’ve ever seen? I can’t think of one on the top of my head! I was always scared of them as a kid, so I rarely watched them. I no longer am, so I’m going to up my horror film viewings.

    10. Weekly goals: Study for a big exam happening next week, get some researching done for a project, then celebrate my 20th birthday on Friday with my folks who are coming to my school! Yay!

    Karen! Walking Dead time! Some things:
    1) I was in near TEARS the first time Herschel tries to pry the fragments out of Carl, and the poor thing is in so much f-ing pain!
    2) I am liking Daryl’s character more and more each episode.
    3) Wasn’t Lori acting like such a b*tch toward Herschel? I mean, I understand, woman, but you should be grateful he’s some type of doctor at all!
    4) How in the world are Shane & Otis going to get out of there?! I have a love/hate thing for the suspense Walking Dead brings to each episode.

    • Kimberly says:

      Oh man, I’m glad you brought up The Walking Dead!

      1. I literally started sobbing during that moment, and pretty much continued crying in every seen Carl was in (especially when Lori first saw him)! It’s so heartbreaking that this had to happen to him during the only good moment he could have in such a crazy world. :(
      2. I’m in love with Daryl this season! His character has grown so much, and is actually turning in to a “good” guy. Who would’ve thought? I’m really excited to see where his character is going.
      3. Where do you think Sophia is??! It’s been driving me crazy wondering!

      • Katie says:

        Hey Kimberly!

        1) I don’t think that Daryl was “bad” in the first place, just flawed, you know? He also had every right to be furious and act out when he lost his brother (even if said brother is horrible). Being a part of the group is forcing him to stay rational while everyone is slowly going insane!
        2) I have the feeling Sophia is alive, but I am so with you on the curiosity! Like I said, the suspense is what I love and hate about this show.

  13. Ruchita says:

    1. Mood:
    Kinda bummed. I had a missed opportunity today that I regret not taking. Oh well, just gotta move on.

    2. If you could dine (for free) anywhere in the world tonight, where would it be?
    Probably also my parent’s house. I love my mom’s Indian cooking.

    3. Do you have any siblings?
    Yep, I have a brother who’s 9 years younger than me.

    4. If your pets could talk, what would they say about you?
    Mingus is already quite a talker and has all sorts of funny meows – he would probably complain about us not letting him outside more often.
    Ella is a sweetheart and would (hopefully) tell us how awesome we are for all the cuddles we give her.

    5. Which one do you follow most often, your heart or your head?
    Hm, probably my heart.

    6. What are three songs on your road trip playlist?
    This is a hard one to narrow to three songs – I’d have to pick the entire Joshua Tree album from U2.

    7. Would you consider yourself renowned or famous for anything in particular?
    I make some pretty good cupcakes.

    8. Your favorite place for dessert?
    Graeter’s Ice Cream – I think it’s regional to the midwest area.

    9. Scariest movie you’ve ever seen?
    The Exorcist. That crab-walking scene freaks me out every time.

    10. Weekly goals:
    Stick with the Jillian Michaels DVD and try to work out 3-4 times this week – refer to items 7 & 8. :-)

    Have a great Monday!

  14. Trude says:

    2. If you could dine (for free) anywhere in the world tonight, where would it be? In my dad’s hometown, Stavanger, Norway. Open faced shrimp sandwiches and crab right out of the shell, baby!

    3. Do you have any siblings? Yup, two younger brothers who got taller than me a long time ago.

    4. If your pets could talk, what would they say about you? My mom kisses the top of my head a LOT.

    5. Which one do you follow most often, your heart or your head? Head. I too am a big believer in listening to my gut!

    6. What are three songs on your road trip playlist? Til We Run Out of Road by Jewel, 1234 by Feist, Home by Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros

    7. Would you consider yourself renowned or famous for anything in particular? Being the Crazy Planning Girl on trips or for events. :)

    8. Your favorite place for dessert? My mom’s kitchen.

    9. Scariest movie you’ve ever seen? Amityville (the remake). Ryan Reynolds was amazing, but there’s a reason I don’t see scary movies, and it doesn’t matter how old I get!

    10. Weekly goals: Process shelter dog photos, and pack for my day job’s conference!
    Trude recently posted … One Year Ago :: Super Dogs!

  15. Megan says:

    1. Mood: Great! I just found a limited-edition eyeshadow set that “sold out” awhile ago…luckily a friend of mine chanced on a counter that had one!
    2. If you could dine (for free) anywhere in the world tonight, where would it be? Ooh. I’m gonna go with Michael Symon’s Lola…I don’t feel like traveling far. :)
    3. Do you have any siblings? My little bro just turned 27 today!
    4. If your pets could talk, what would they say about you? Probably along the lines of “Get this toddler out of my face, would you? Oh, and you’re behind on the daily snuggle quotient. Get on it.”
    5. Which one do you follow most often, your heart or your head? Working on head!
    6. What are three songs on your road trip playlist? Tool’s “Sober,” Evanescence’s “Bring Me to Life,” and Paul McCartney’s “Live and Let Die.”
    7. Would you consider yourself renowned or famous for anything in particular? Among the fam and shelter colleagues, I’m a Cat Whisperer. Which, I suppose, is better than Crazy Cat Lady.
    8. Your favorite place for dessert? Mitchell’s Homemade Ice Cream shop! The ice cream in my freezer is homemade caramel apple cider with toasted almonds and Jack Daniels.
    9. Scariest movie you’ve ever seen? Well, I know after I see a scary movie I’m sleeping with lights on for at least a week. So I avoid them. Except that time in college my RA friends made me watch the new “Texas Chainsaw Massacre.” I spent the whole time crying from fear and when I went back to my dorm, I fell asleep to “Sesame Street,” because it was the least scary thing I could think of.
    10. Weekly goals: Stop thinking of “Texas Chainsaw Massacre.” Finish re-reading “Game of Thrones” and get on to the next one!

  16. Catherine says:

    1. Mood: A little tired but overall not bad for a Monday morning – especially one where I only got 4-5 hrs of sleep because of a migraine.

    2. If you could dine (for free) anywhere in the world tonight, where would it be? Oh man. Taipei, Taiwan. I can’t even spell the thing I want, but oyster noodle soup at this little stand in the West Gate district with a line down the street.

    3. Do you have any siblings? Oldest of two, my brother’s 17 months younger than I am.

    4. If your pets could talk, what would they say about you? I don’t have any at the moment, but the other ones were almost all hamsters, so I doubt they’d have much to say except “feed me” or “let me out!!!!!!”

    5. Which one do you follow most often, your heart or your head? Head. I’m a very logical person. And even when I’m following my heart my head’s going “WTH IS WRONG WITH YOU?”

    6. What are three songs on your road trip playlist? Katy Perry’s Teenage Dream, Kansas’s Carry on my Wayward Son and Journey’s Don’t Stop Believin’

    2. If you could dine (for free) anywhere in the world tonight, where would it be? I’m thinking Taco Cabana or Sonic.

    7. Would you consider yourself renowned or famous for anything in particular? I was legend in college for the mantra I would repeat through finals: “It doesn’t have to be good, it just has to be.” At some point when you’re under the gun, you just get it done and quality is secondary. 15 years later people still quote it.

    8. Your favorite place for dessert? in Houston, Dessert Gallery. In Cape Town, Charly’s Bakery. In Boston, Sweet (a cupcake place). In Istanbul, every shop that sells baklava. I’m big into desserts.
