Makeup and Beauty Blog Monday Poll, Vol. 201

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. I’ve always enjoyed reading your answers in the comments, and I hope you enjoy reading mine.
  1. Mood:
  2. Mellow.

  3. Do you have any habits you’d like to break?
  4. Perfectionism. I actually had to look up that word in my dictionary because I was only 99 percent sure of the spelling. See, why do I care about things like that? It’s exhausting, and I’m so over it…

  5. What will you remember most about 2011?
  6. Traveling. I did a little more of it than usual last year and got to discover some neat places like Toronto and Vancouver.

  7. How do you feel about colorful jeans?
  8. I feel good about them, but only if they’re skinny jeans, because for some reason colorful wide-leg or flared jeans make me feel extra short.

  9. One of the most important lessons you learned last year?
  10. That asking for help isn’t a sign of weakness. It’s a sign of wisdom, and it takes true grit (Ha! I’ve been dying to say that).

  11. Are you craving anything at this very moment?
  12. A big, steaming bowl of Vietnamese pho noodle soup and a piping hot Krispy Kreme doughnut for dessert.

  13. What’s going to be different in 2012?
  14. I’m gonna jump on that horse and take the reins! For years now I’ve felt like a passenger on a raft being swept down a river. I haven’t felt fully in control of my time, my finances or my house (after two years here, I still have an unfurnished dining room!), so that’s one of my big goals for 2012, to get control of the raft again.

  15. Sunrise or sunset?
  16. Sunset.

  17. Three of your favorite eye liners?
  18. Laura Mercier Stormy Grey, MAC Powersurge and LORAC Front of the Line Pro.

  19. Weekly goals:
  20. To be extra kind to myself, to attend two yoga classes, and to get to bed before midnight every day this week.

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

Our first official Monday Poll of 2012! Before you know it, we’ll be doing our last one of the year… LOL! I guess I’m getting a little ahead of myself, but time does fly when you’re having fun. :)

Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,

Karen

    Two things: we welcomed Littlefoot in our home, and I got a job at uni.

    3. 2011 memory: Being the officiant of my close friends’ wedding
    4. Colorful jeans: I love color on everything, and I love colorful jeans. However, they don’t look so fabulous on me, so I’ll stick to my typical dark wash jeans
    5. Important lesson: Don’t gossip at work. Even when I know all sorts of crazy juicy stuff, I need to keep it quiet or tell someone who is unrelated to work if I really can’t keep it in. I didn’t have a huge problem with this myself, but I mostly learned from observing others.

    On a side night…I too struggle with perfectionism & I agree it is exhausting & unhealthy.

    3. What will you remember most about 2011?

    Taking a risk & getting a new job instead of staying in a job that I hated just b/c it was safe to stay. I’m not sure I like this job much better, LOL, but at least it’s “different”!

    4. How do you feel about colorful jeans?

    The ones’ I’ve seen are skinny fit so I’d say they are really cute if you are 20 something & on the thin side!

    5. One of the most important lessons you learned last year?

    I’m just continually reminded that life is short & to make the most of each day & to treat family/friends well so that you have no regrets.

    6. Are you craving anything at this very moment?

    Nachos in fact I’m eating them right now, but am annoyed that I accidentally bought salted blue chips instead of the no salt ones.

    7. What’s going to be different in 2012?

    Everything!

    8. Sunrise or sunset?

    I like both. Don’t have a preference.

    I think they look sexy and fun if they’re skinny jeans w/ heels.

    Sometimes an unexpected break is a good thing and that there is no need to be upset about making a mistake or mistakes that have been made, since you cannot change them.

  11. Katie says:

    1. Mood: Calm (except for some, ya know, cramping down there)
    2. Do you have any habits you’d like to break? I would like to stop eating too fast (and instead, take some minutes between bites) and gorging junk food just “because” or “to treat myself.”
    3. What will you remember most about 2011? It was a really tough year, but I’ve learned a lot that I hope to keep in mind for 2012.
    4. How do you feel about colorful jeans? I don’t hate ‘em. I don’t any colorful jeans and I’m not actively looking for any, but I’d like to own a pair of red skinny jeans. Red is punchy, but versatile!
    5. One of the most important lessons you learned last year? Similar to the first comment above, you don’t have to be a Superwoman. This is tough for me, as getting rid of perfectionism is something I’ve continuously worked on. Being less than perfect and not meeting others’ expectations is OK.
    6. Are you craving anything at this very moment? Nope!
    7. What’s going to be different in 2012? My skincare routine! I want nice(r) skin!

    10. Weekly goals: My break ends Saturday, so I need to get some DIY projects done today, grab some foundation samples (and buy some foundation), play some piano, and think about what I would like to accomplish for the coming semester!

    What are your guys’ resolutions? Happy new year, everyone!

  12. Kate & Zena says:

    1. Mood:
    Really tired!

    2. Do you have any habits you’d like to break?
    Going to bed so late at night! Oh, and my perfectionism habit.

    3. What will you remember most about 2011?
    That it definitely was NOT a good year!

    4. How do you feel about colorful jeans?
    They most definitely do not look good on me. Well, people say they do, but I just feel really uncomfortable in jeans in that aren’t black, white or some shade of blue!

    5. One of the most important lessons you learned last year?
    This too shall pass.

    6. Are you craving anything at this very moment?
    A nap, if you can crave a nap, that is.

    7. What’s going to be different in 2012?
    It’s going to be a better year!

    8. Sunrise or sunset?
    SUNSET!!!!!! I’d rather be asleep through the sunrise.

    Figure out what classes I’m going to take this semester.
    Get a 2012 wall calender.

    Take more photos.
    Make more buttermilk biscuits. They’re rather addicting.
    Give Zena cuddles.

  13. Katherine G says:

    By the way, I am a perfectionist, too :) I have a feeling 2012 will be a wonderful year :)
    1. Mood:
    ~Content. Today is the first day in a long time where I haven’t had anything pressing to do for work or school. First day in months.

    2. Do you have any habits you’d like to break?
    ~I am a perfectionist, and I need to learn to go with the flow on certain things. It’s been a proven fact many times that when I relax, certain skills are performed so much better, and without even thinking about it. The key is to get my brain to relax. I am also a chronic nail biter (have been since I was little, and have tried every method humanly possible to stop to no avail), and I would like to grow my nails at least a little bit. I can’t do fake nails because of my career, so that is not an option to help me stop biting them.

    3. What will you remember most about 2011?
    ~Being engaged, and starting the journey on my new career path.

    4. How do you feel about colorful jeans?
    ~I like them but I probably wouldn’t wear them.

    5. One of the most important lessons you learned last year?
    ~To keep going no matter what. Especially with running and exercise. And realizing that bad people in life will always be bad people and I can’t do anything to change them or get rid of them.

    6. Are you craving anything at this very moment?
    ~Soup and a sammich.

    7. What’s going to be different in 2012?
    ~I will finally have my bachelor’s in Psych/Bio, and I will get married. I will also be taking a lot of different types of classes and picking up different skills.

    8. Sunrise or sunset?
    ~I like both, but I think sunsets are the prettiest. Sunrises tend to wake me up a bit early.

    9. Three of your favorite eye liners?
    ~L’Oreal eye liner similar to Urban Decay in Carbon Black, any Urban Decay 24/7 liner, and the Milani 24/7 liquid liners.
    10. Weekly goals:
    ~Sign up for the next and last semester.
    ~Get out running and meet exercise goals.
    ~Enjoy the time off and just do some things for myself.

  14. Megan says:

    1. Mood: Productive! Taking down all the Christmas stuff today; this poll is my break from the pine tree needles.
    2. Do you have any habits you’d like to break? Procrastination. I’m the best person ever at wanting to learn things and never getting past thinking, “Man, how great would it be to know (x).”
    3. What will you remember most about 2011? My son’s first words: “Kitty,” “Mama,” and “Tank oo.”
    4. How do you feel about colorful jeans? I don’t go out of my way to find them, but if I could get a pair that fit without too much searching, I’d be game.
    5. One of the most important lessons you learned last year? It’s much more important to snuggle baby and kitty than have a clean house.
    6. Are you craving anything at this very moment? The roasted red pepper sauce I made last night over some rotini…I can’t wait for dinner!
    7. What’s going to be different in 2012? I’m going to create more goals and outline how I’ll achieve them. No more “Someday, I’ll get (x) done.”
    8. Sunrise or sunset? Sunset. I don’t appreciate being awake for sunrise.
    9. Three of your favorite eye liners? Le Metier de Beaute Precision Eyeliner in Noir, Le Metier de Beaute Dualistic Eyeliner in Tamarack, Urban Decay 24/7 liner in Stray Dog.
    10. Weekly goals: My husband heads back to work tomorrow after 2 weeks off, so my main goal is to just get back in the swing of things: Plan healthy meals for the week, get my son back on a sleeping schedule, get laundry done before Friday, vacuum up every single last pine needle.

  15. Karen B says:

    1. Mood:
    Relaxed (two days of lounging about have that effect on me… hehe)

    2. Do you have any habits you’d like to break?
    Eating when I’m bored. Most definitely.

    3. What will you remember most about 2011?

    Awesome! I want a cobalt pair.

    5. One of the most important lessons you learned last year?
    Trust yourself and your instincts.

    1. Mood: hard to tell… definitely unsettled, nervous, but than again, not too bad
    2. Do you have any habits you’d like to break? I really should eat less sugar and other junk to comfort myself, it really doesn’t help anybody or anything and only makes life worse and change more difficult
    3. What will you remember most about 2011? It has been a year I’d rather forget, although I loved the way we said goodbye to it! I am sure I have more good memories of 2011, but at the moment they escape me.
    4. How do you feel about colorful jeans? I like them, I love color, but they would not look good on me.
    5. One of the most important lessons you learned last year? If you want a change you have to make it happen. And still be proud of every step even if you fail in the end. Shame and despair are not helpful emotions.

    7. What’s going to be different in 2012? Me, I hope, although technically I aim at becoming more true to my self, which would mean not being different than what I am.
    8. Sunrise or sunset? sunrise, I love the quiet world before the break of dawn, life also seems much clearer when I just wake up. That is: as long as I have time to enjoy a sunrise and all ;)
    9. Three of your favorite eye liners? UD 24/7, Essence gel liner, Dr Hauschka Eyeliner liquid
