Makeup and Beauty Blog Monday Poll, Sept. 5

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. 184. I’ve always enjoyed reading your answers in the comments, and I hope you enjoy reading mine.
  1. Mood:
  2. I’m A-OK for Labor Day. :) El Hub has the day off from work today, and that always puts me (and Tabs) in a good mood.

  3. Which lip colors do you wear least often and why?
  4. As much as I love the dramatic statements they make, I rarely wear dark burgundies and purples (like MAC Me Over’s Lipstick Price Noir up there at the top) because they’re just so high maintenance! Whenever I wear one there’s about a 93% chance it’ll be smeared across my cheek within 10 minutes.

  5. What’s one thing you do to simplify your morning routine?
  6. I don’t do it every day, but when I have a big meeting where I want to look sharp, I’ll set aside my outfit and accessories the night before and iron anything that looks wrinkly.

  7. When was the last time you groomed your brows?
  8. Yesterday! Sundays are my beauty catch-up days. I’ll pluck and trim my brows, de-fuzz my upper lip, shave my big toes (hey, gotta keep it real), exfoliate my bod (my current favorite scrub: Burt’s Bees Honey & Shea Sugar Scrub), and paint my nails/toes.

  9. The last thing you treated yourself to?
  10. A pair of shoes and earrings from the Kate Spade Sample Sale last week.

  11. Something that recently surprised you about yourself?
  12. Wow, a list like this could takes days! I guess the most surprising thing I’ve figured out about myself lately has been that I’m tougher than I used to give myself credit for being.

  13. S’mores?
  14. Yes, please! I haven’t had ‘em for years (or been around any campfires, for that matter), but from what I can remember, s’mores get a big fat YEA!

  15. What’s one good thing that happened to you this weekend?
  16. I got nine hours of shut-eye on Saturday night — probably the best sleep I’ve gotten over the past month.

  17. If you could star on a reality TV show, which one would would it be?
  18. Definitely no shows involving deserted islands, outdoor plumbing and/or physical challenges. :) Oh, and no hot tubs… I’ve seen enough reality TV to know that.

    So maybe one of those home decorating shows on HGTV? Lawd knows I need the help. Been here in this condo for two years and still have beige walls, a beige carpet and a dining room without furniture. I’m a home decorator’s nightmare!

  19. Weekly goals:
  20. I’m determined to work out for at least an hour every day, to try out some new eye makeup colors, and I want to find a really great ab workout DVD (any suggestions)?

Hey, friend. I know that some folks here in the U.S. have today off, but if you’re holding down the fort at work, this virtual cup of coffee , and this video of a cat playing with a dolphin, are for you.

Isn’t the video just about the cutest thing!? Even El Hub said, “awwww.”

I know you have places to go and sites to see, but if you have a minute, let me know how you’re doing in today’s Monday Poll.

P.S. Hi, ladies. This is one of the posts for which I lost your comments after yesterday’s (Sept. 8, 2011) server glitch. I’m very sorry I wasn’t able to recover them, but I was able to read them back before the problem with the server occurred.
