Makeup and Beauty Blog Monday Poll, Sept. 26

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. 187. I’ve always enjoyed reading your answers in the comments, and I hope you enjoy reading mine.
  1. Mood:
  2. Not too shabby, tabby. I sawed logs last night and actually feel like I’m firing on all cylinders (for once!).

  3. What are a few of your least favorite things?
  4. The smell of new plastic toys, vomiting in front of other people (ugh…), high-waisted pants, pretentious films, and chewy seafood (abalone, etc.).

  5. Today I’d love…
  6. …a pint of pistachio gelato and to get extra lurvies from Tabs.

  7. Outfit?
  8. My J. Brand 811 Jeans (they’re grafted to my body!), a black button-down sweater, a pair of yellow Seychelles wedge sandals, and a green, yellow, black and beige scarf.

  9. Exactly where are you right now?
  10. I’m sitting on the left side of my living room couch with a laptop on my lap. Degrees Minutes Seconds: N 38° 6′ 26.6652″, W 122° 34′ 11.0136″, or thereabouts.

  11. Describe your favorite jacket to wear in the fall:
  12. The Guess Metallic Faux Leather Scuba Jacket I picked up last year during the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale. It’s in basic black, so it goes with everything. Plus, it has a high neckline that keeps out the chill when there’s a breeze.

  13. When was the last time you bounced on a pogo stick?
  14. Hmm… Really? Well, maybe 1984? I know I had one growing up, although honestly, I have no idea why my parents let me have one. Those things are dangerous!

  15. Your two cents (beauty related)?
  16. A dentist friend of mine (Mary Anne) advised me to always drink coffee, tea or red wine (highly pigmented/acidic beverages) through a straw to avoid staining your teeth. Yes, it looks goofy, especially when you’re drinking wine.

  17. Your two cents (non-beauty related)?
  18. Podcasts help pass the time when you’re working out. Lately I’ve learned about the history of casinos, genetic diversity as it pertains to bananas, baseball and songwriting.

  19. Weekly goals:
  20. To dance every single day, even if it’s just to the Chipmunk’s version of 50 Cent’s Go Shorty, It’s Your Birthday in my living room.

WARNING: The following song may prompt you to throw something.


All sorts of wrong…but strangely satisfying!

I hope your week got off to a good start. No complaints on my end of the keyboard. I just finished a quick run, so I’m jacked up on endorphins right now.

Would you care for a delicious smoothie (frozen berries, vanilla yogurt and a dash of apple juice)? Have a seat, take a moment to fill out the Monday Poll, and I’ll make you one. :)

      Hi Jessi,

      I’m sorry to hear that you’re having a rough day. I know how it feels.

      I’m sure you’ll be able to get what you need to get done, but also take some time today to be extra kind to yourself. Even if it’s just five minutes with a cup of tea.

      Tabs sends you big kitty hugs and purrs.

      • Jessi says:

        Thank you Miss Karen. You, your blog, and Tabs always make me feel better. You’re one of those kinds of people that bring every one else around you up. That’s pretty rare. :)

    1. Mood: Mildly frustrated because I’m having a hard time with one of my supplemental application essay prompts. I know it seems like an easy question, but I have no idea how to talk about one of my personal traits and how it makes me *unique* XD

    2. What are a few of your least favorite things? Biting into a peppercorn, having expectations that aren’t met, and not being visited by your muse.

    3. Today I’d love… a gigantic hug from one of my besties. Today doesn’t feel like a bad day, but it does feel like the day for some friend snuggles.

    4. Outfit? I’m wearing a long, dark floral dress, funky knee socks, and a black cardigan. I have organic chemistry lab today so I needed a cute outfit that would cover my legs.

    5. Exactly where are you right now? I’m laptopping away in the Revelle College area of the UCSD campus. My approximate latitude and longitude in degrees, minutes, and seconds respectively are 32, 52, 31.9974 and -117, 14, 9.6612. :)

    6. Describe your favorite jacket to wear in the fall. I love me some cardigans. But my *dream* jacket would be a cool, chic leather jacket.

    7. When was the last time you bounced on a pogo stick? I don’t think I’ve ever bounced on a pogo stick :O I’m so accident prone that I’d probably have the most epic fail accident on it.

    8. Your two cents (beauty related)? It is extremely important to make sure your skin care routine is customized to your skin type to maximize the result of your products!

    9. Your two cents (non-beauty related)? No one should ever get between you and your dreams.

    10. Weekly goals: Stay on top of school work so that I don’t get behind so quickly in the quarter. And also to finish my supplemental prompts so that I can turn in my application ASAP!

    • Karen says:

      Hi Christina,

      Ahh, I know what you mean re: getting stumped. Have you tried doing a “throwaway” draft? It’s basically when you write as fast as you can about all the ideas percolating in your mind. Then you print it out, grab a red pen (yes, it has to be red, LOL!) and start cutting. You’ll end up throwing away 90%, but within all that stuff you’ll find some gems that you can use to answer your essay prompt.

    • Karen says:

      Hi Nina,

      I remember you mentioning having trubs sleeping on Sundays. Is it because you stay up late on Friday and Saturday nights?

      I’m so jealous that it’s still hot out there. It rained here yesterday! It’s supposed to be warmer later on in the week (mid ’80s, and I’m crossing my fingers!) so I’m looking forward to that.

      Are you still reading the same book?

      • Nina says:

        i think it is because i stay up really really late fridays and saturdays. plus i drink a bunch of coffee on the weekend too!

    1. Mood: tired but great! Today was great but I registered for an interpreting course (weekend stuff, looks exciting!) and quit my second, non-paid job. It’s a huge wait off my shoulders!

    2. What are a few of your least favorite things? TV series withdrawal symptoms (when you watch 3 seasons in two weeks and don’t know what to do with yourself after the last episode – hit that point yesterday), homesickness, snakes, slurpy eaters, bad grammar and people treating me like I’m 12.

    3. Today I’d love to see my family so I could hug them all real tight.

    4. Outfit? PJs! I got home and hopped straight in the shower, I feel all relaxed. :)

    5. Exactly where are you right now? Sitting crossed legged at the end of my bed, with my laptop on a chair in front of me.

    6. Describe your favorite jacket to wear in the fall. That H&M jacket (http://4.bp.blogspot.com/_VX-8kWxT7qk/Sx3AaEfYShI/AAAAAAAAATY/1ejaorf0B9k/s320/plaid.jpg it’s actually navy and red) with jeans and flats.

    7. When was the last time you bounced on a pogo stick? Never did!

    8. Your two cents (beauty related)? As my mum once taught me, 1)take care of your neck like it’s a part of your face and 2)beautiful skin is a lot more attractive than features. So take care of your skin instead of piling on the cakey foundation!

    9. Your two cents (non-beauty related)? Fake it until you make it, then keep faking it some more. Everybody’s freaking out about life, jobs etc. so don’t panic because you think you’re the only one.

    10. Weekly goals: make it a good week! And try to speak to my boss about adding more to my job (probably won’t go anywhere, but guess I have to try anyway..).

    5. Exactly where are you right now? Sitting in front of my computer at my desk here at work O_o

    8. Your two cents (beauty related)? Please curl your lashes…it goes a long way!

    2. What are a few of your least favorite things?
    squid (eating it), the smell of microwaved fish (usually), and… not being with my family.

    4. Outfit?
    black tank + vintage black polyester cardigan with white lining (haha), a plummy purple tea-length skirt, my rockin’ Terra Plana black heels, and a purple/white/pink stripey scarf. I’m feeling slightly french. :)

    At my desk, sitting in my office chair.
    6. Describe your favorite jacket to wear in the fall.
    a super cute, Jackie O-esque longish jacket… it’s like a light peacoat, it’s off white, has a mandarin collar, and it’s just AWESOME.
    7. When was the last time you bounced on a pogo stick?
    oh goodness. I don’t even know. Probably in the 90′s sometime.
    8. Your two cents (beauty related)?
    do whatever you like to make yourself look your best. If you feel like you’re at your best, you will be! To that end, though, always experiment with new things (makeup, hair, fashion, etc) to make sure you’re not boxing yourself in.
    9. Your two cents (non-beauty related)?
    Be honest. Honesty is so so so important in just about every relationship you ever had (maybe besides work-related stuff, haha).
    10. Weekly goals:
    To survive. School + work + home life has been kicking my patooty.

    7. When was the last time you bounced on a pogo stick? Never! I’ve always wanted to though…
    8. Your two cents (beauty related)? Eyebrows are key to a face! And, watch the hair on your upper lip… it can really change how your makeup goes on.
    9. Your two cents (non-beauty related)? Smile everyday! And tell people you love them. I think those are important, because you never, ever know. Plus, if you smile, someone else is bound to!
    10. Weekly goals: Get in as many hours at work as possible, write a good post for the blog I contribute to, and get a haircut. Short hair needs to be trimmed much more often than I do it…

    • Karen says:

      Happy birthday, Bronwyn! How are you celebrating this year?

      P.S. Great advice to smile everyday and to tell people you love them. Both are important.

      • Bronwyn says:

        Thank you Karen! I’m going to my family’s pub for a beer with a few close friends. Nothing exciting, it’s a Monday after all. It’ll just be nice to go out and enjoy something refreshing after a huge dinner with my family. Haha.

    6. Describe your favorite jacket to wear in the fall. My Calvin Klein black neoprene-ish, hooded jacket. It’s the perfect weight, very flattering and water resistant.
    7. When was the last time you bounced on a pogo stick? It’s been many years, but I jumped around on moon shoes a couple of years ago. That was fun and dangerous. HAHA!
    8. Your two cents (beauty related)? Embrace and play up your good features; forget about the stuff you don’t like.
    9. Your two cents (non-beauty related)? Enjoy life (responsibly and with respect for yourself and others). Don’t deprive yourself of food or drinks you love because you’re afraid of an extra pound or two. And don’t assume you know what other people prioritize or do in their free time, or worse, judge them based on your assumptions.
    10. Weekly goals: Winterize the pool; keep on keeping on with the Insanity workouts; spend quality time with the Hubs (who’s been out of town for 2.5 weeks) and the boys. Oh, and make time to check my favorite blog every day! :)

    • Karen says:

      Hi Kim!

      The North Bay had the final summer hurrah last week. It was in the mid-90s… Man, I’m gonna miss walking around at night with just a t-shirt and shorts on.

      How was your weekend? Did you have any soccer games?

      • Kim says:

        I’m so glad you guys had a burst of warm weather, too. It’s making the transition to fall a little easier for us! :)

        Yes, we had a tournament all day on Saturday. It was long and tiring (and the mosquitoes were relentless) but the boys had a great time playing and hanging out with their friends. All the proceeds benefit cancer research (it’s an annual memorial tournament for 2 local sisters who passed away several years ago), so it’s for a great cause too. :) Only 2 more weeks and soccer will be done. Then we move into hockey!

    2. What are a few of your least favorite things? Rambling (I honestly can’t stand it especially if I’m in a rush), grammar/spelling mistakes from college students/grads, people who are mean just to be mean (saying something without thinking about others’ feelings – its the Pisces in me)

    3. Today I’d love…to re-do the test i took :-(

    4. Outfit? Comfy, roomy, black knit Vivienne Tam top with those wide butterfly-style sleeves, white Hollister shorts, and black & white Converses! My hair is looking good today, too. Always a bonus, LOL.

    5. Exactly where are you right now? In my dorm room, at my desk, taking a lunch break.

    6. Describe your favorite jacket to wear in the fall. I LOVE black peacoats. Does that need any further description?

    7. When was the last time you bounced on a pogo stick? Never! I don’t know if I’d want to try, either.

    8. Your two cents (beauty related)? Feel comfortable with what you put on your face. Also, great brows make a HUGE difference!

    9. Your two cents (non-beauty related)? Work your schedule around having a full night’s sleep. Sleep shouldn’t be put off!

    10. Weekly goals: Work hard during the weekdays (homework, more midterm preparation/studying, exercise at least 3 times), then have a blast at the county fair & Getty Museum this weekend!

  30. Linnea says:

    1. Mood: Good! Looking forward to the end of the workday!
    2. What are a few of your least favorite things? the sound of teeth contacting with metal. At any time. Tinfoil, a fork(sliding your fork out of your mouth with your teeth closed *shudder*), etc. Waiting for things to buffer. When my ipod just decides not to work :(.

    10. Weekly goals: to refrain from beating the heck out of my kids (just kidding….sort of)

  33. Kimberly says:

    1. Mood:
    Very, VERY tired. My weekend was quite hectic/stressful.

    2. What are a few of your least favorite things?
    My internet connection at the moment, which is too slow to function and the fact that my hair absolutely refuses to cooperate now that the weather has changed.

    3. Today I’d love…
    to spend some much-needed time with my boyfriend! Or just hang out with my furbabies–little Nero seems to have an interest in all of my makeup. Perhaps an internship with Tabs is in order? :)

    4. Outfit?
    A cream cardigan with ruffles, a colorful flower dress with yellow, blue, green, red, and white, and leggings!

    5. Exactly where are you right now?
    Sitting behind the desk at work (I work in a bookstore and it’s very slow at the moment!).

    6. Describe your favorite jacket to wear in the fall.
    Hmmm. I don’t think I have a favorite jacket at the moment! It used to be an old maroon jacket a friend gave me, but that one is too loved and tattered to wear!

    7. When was the last time you bounced on a pogo stick?
    I honestly don’t think I’ve ever done that, I was probably too afraid I would fall off and make a fool of myself as a kid (I still would).

    8. Your two cents (beauty related)?
    Go bold, or go home. Wearing makeup should always be a fun experience, and not a hassle, so if it ever gets to that point with you you need to switch things up!

    9. Your two cents (non-beauty related)?
    You should talk to one new person a day. You should always remain positive, because what else is there?

    10. Weekly goals:
    Do well on my Italian quiz tomorrow! Sleep more! Finish decorating/cleaning my apartment!

  34. Katherine G says:

    1. Mood: content. Had a great “princess” shift at work today, even though it was really busy.

    2. What are a few of your least favorite things?: Rudeness (I can’t stand when people are rude and there are better ways of handling things!), when people drive dangerously, and when people are fake and do not act like a real person.

    3. Today I’d love…: if it actually was a little cooler outside. Not loving this muggy weather.

    4. Outfit?: Currently sweats and a t-shirt, just changed out of my scrubs.

    5. Exactly where are you right now?: at my parents’ house on my bed (haven’t officially moved out to live with the fiance yet).

    6. Describe your favorite jacket to wear in the fall.: That’s a tough one. I love my London Fog trenchcoat cuz it’s sexy, but I also love my Victoria’s Secret corset leather jacket.

    7. When was the last time you bounced on a pogo stick?: Not in a loooongg time.

    8. Your two cents (beauty related)?: Drink lots of water, use body lotion after the shower (it keeps skin moist and prevents it from aging faster), self-tan DON’T tan in the sun or at a tanning salon, olive oil makes for a great deep conditioner (old Italian trick from my grandmother), and work out as much as you can. Working out not only makes you feel healthy and keeps you healthy, but it actually helps fight zits because you are sweating out toxins and other bad things for your body.

    9. Your two cents (non-beauty related)?: If you notice something wrong (unusual swelling, lumps, numbness, tingling, pain) PLEASE go to your doctor or local ER. I have seen too many patients not get somewhere soon enough and it has devastating results (especially if they let it go on for a long time). It’s better to go and find out that it’s “nothing” then not go at all and let something potentially serious become irreversible. Also, as hard as it is to exercise, it’s something that will make you feel good, stay healthy, and look good.

    10. Weekly goals: Start writing my term papers for 2 classes and get work education out of the way.

  35. 1. Mood: Not to bad for a Monday

    5. Exactly where are you right now? Home
    6. Describe your favorite jacket to wear in the fall. Sweater jacket
    7. When was the last time you bounced on a pogo stick? Have to say I have never done this. Will have to try it.
    8. Your two cents (beauty related)? Use your hair dryer to heat your eyelash curler for a few seconds right before curling your lashes to help give a little extra curl.
    9. Your two cents (non-beauty related)? Love yourself.
    10. Weekly goals: Finish a book.

  36. Suri says:

    1. Mood:
    Sort of sad. My friend has turned to self-harm recently and I have no idea how to help her out.
    2. What are a few of your least favorite things?
    “Fake” people, people who make fun of either mentally unstable people or people who are fat, or acne-prone or some other way considered “ugly”. Also the fact that society has made cutting acceptable.
    3. Today I’d love…
    to have all my homework finished, and my friend back to normal.
    4. Outfit?
    Pair of purple soffees and a school t-shirt. Have to be comfy for homework! I was wearing a pair of dark wash jeans, grey boots, and a black t-shirt with purple belt to school today though.
    5. Exactly where are you right now?
    Sitting on the couch in my living room.
    6. Describe your favorite jacket to wear in the fall.
    A hoodie? It doesn’t get cold enough to wear much more than that in the fall in Texas.
    7. When was the last time you bounced on a pogo stick?
    I don’t think I ever have….
    8. Your two cents (beauty related)?
    Makeup really isn’t essential to be pretty. Proper skin care, will make a better difference then pounds of foundation.
    9. Your two cents (non-beauty related)?
    Get off your lazy butt and get what you need done before midnight. That way you have time for “me” time before you go to sleep.
    10. Weekly goals:
    Work-out more often, and stop eating so many darn cookies !

    • Karen says:

      Hey Marina,

      I’m sorry to hear about your friend. It really sucks to feel helpless. :( Is there a counselor or someone you can talk to who can help brainstorm ways to get through to your friend?

  38. Melissa says:

    1. Mood: Agitated. My supervisor was an hour and half late to a meeting we had (after she yelled at me for being “unprofessional” by not scheduling a meeting with her.. ironic, no?), making me late for my bus then I missed my train and it was just a whole mess.

    2. What are a few of your least favorite things?: As if you couldn’t tell, people being late to things, loud talkers, nail biting.

    3. Today I’d love…: my chipping nail polish to automatically fix itself!

    4. Outfit?: Black oxford wedges, black tights, black skirt, light pink button up.

    5. Exactly where are you right now?: My bedroom (finally!) eating some soup and watching a baseball game.

    6. Describe your favorite jacket to wear in the fall.: Haven’t quite found the perfect autumn jacket yet.

    7. When was the last time you bounced on a pogo stick?: Never.

    8. Your two cents (beauty related)?: Moisturize. And it’s better/easier to prevent damage than it is to undo.

    9. Your two cents (non-beauty related)?: Be kind and work hard.

    10. Weekly goals: to have an AMAZING weekend.

  39. Em says:

    1. Mood: Restless. Waiting for How I Met Your Mother to come on, anyone?
    2. What are a few of your least favorite things? Mmmmm…my hair, which is a wierd combination of oily/dry, curly/straight, long/sort. But at least it’s got a nice natural blonde color!
