Makeup and Beauty Blog Monday Poll, Vol. 212

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 four years. I’ve always enjoyed reading your answers in the comments, and I hope you enjoy reading mine.
  1. Mood:
  2. Steady, and surprisingly calm, which is a welcome change from last week, which was unusually rough for me. I’d been feeling a little run down and mentally drained, but I was able to squeeze in a whole lot of nothing last weekend, and it really helped. I slept in, did some reading, worked out a couple times, stared out the window…

    Sure, the house is a mess because I didn’t do any cleaning, but today, in the greater scheme of things, I’ll take that.

  3. Pastel eye makeup: your thoughts?
  4. Ya know, I like it. Sometimes I’ll do a swish of pastel liner along my lash lines or a slice of pastel eyeshadow on my lids — usually something more like that than an uninterrupted block of pastel color from lid to lash line, which, I don’t know, can seem a little bit much, especially if all I’ve got going on is a trip to Petco.

  5. When was the last time you played on a trampoline?
  6. Um…never? But I’ve heard it’s fun.

  7. Your favorite cereal?
  8. Does oatmeal count? I think it does. :)

  9. Tell me something about your morning:
  10. Tabs somehow shut himself in the hallway closet downstairs and must have been in there for gawd knows how long.

    I hadn’t seen him in a while and just assumed he was ignoring me. I was upstairs listening to music in my office, so I couldn’t hear the meows he was undoubtedly making until I went downstairs to freshen my tea.

    That’s when I heard a very upset tabby cat. “MROWWW! MEEEOW! MROWWW! DAMNIT!”

    He must have zipped in there when El Hub opened the door to grab his jacket before leaving for work. Knowing Tabs, he probably assumed he’d have in-and-out closet privileges.

  11. Okay, this one’s a little weird…but if you had to pick up and leave tomorrow to spend a year living in a different country, which country would it be?
  12. With no time to plan, I’d pick a place where the language would be less of a hurdle for me, like Australia, Canada or England. I’m all for adventure and learning new things, but a year is a long time. I’d want to be able to do things like buy car insurance and talk to a doctor without too much hassle.

    Now, instead of leaving tomorrow, if I had a few months to prepare, I’d choose France or Spain (the food!).

  13. Peter Pan shirt collars: yay or nay?
  14. Well…they looked good on Peter, and I like them on other people, but nay on me.

  15. Last time you washed your makeup brushes?
  16. About an hour ago with Burt’s Bees soap (try it; it’s life changing!).

  17. A beauty trend that freaks you out?
  18. I saw some press-on French manicure toenails at the drugstore the other day and felt a little queasy.

  19. Weekly goals:
  20. Just to be kinder to myself than I was last week, and to try to have a little fun each and every day.

Missed you last weekend, on account of my head, which was buried in Hunger Games books. :) If you have a moment and feel like checking in this morning, please do. I could use a friendly hello in today’s Monday Poll.

  4. Suzi says:

    I bought the Burt bees soap after seeing your review to clean my Mac brushes. It works so well! I usually use my Mac cleaner. I’m only a little concerned that it leaves a waxy residue on my brushes and I’m afraid it might dry them out. Have you noticed that or anything else?

  5. Stèphanie says:

  6. Fieran says:

    1. Mood: Pretty okay :) I’m so glad it’s kind of Spring here.

    2. Pastel eye makeup: your thoughts? I don’t think it’ll suit my skin tone. Might be a bit garish.

    3. When was the last time you played on a trampoline? Maybe when I was 3? I remember my Mom’s friend having a trampoline years ago. But not since then.

    4. Your favorite cereal? Quaker Belgian Dark Chocolate Cruesli. It’s kind of packed with calories so I only have it as a treat, like once every two months or so.

    5. Tell me something about your morning: I was pretty happy with my smoky eye today :) I wore MAC’s Nebula pigment on top of the Greasepaint stick in black. Lined with YSL’s black waterproof eyeliner and some mascara. I also used MAC’s Patina for my inner corner highlight.

    6. You’re leaving tomorrow to spend a year in which country? France. I’d love to learn French and eat French cuisine..and maybe learn the reason behind French women always being so thin and slender. *Jealous* :)

    7. Peter Pan shirt collars: yay or nay? Yay, if I could find one that suited me.

    8. Last time you washed your makeup brushes? Yesterday. Sunday is my clean-the-brushes day. Usually I only wash the ones I need for the next day but on Sundays I wash almost every brush I own (about 20 brushes I think).

    9. A beauty trend that freaks you out? Vajazzling. Enough said.

    10. Weekly goals: Survive the week. Be positive. Be productive. Eat healthy and work out at least three times.

  7. Shannon says:

    Groggy! I had a late night last night and my body is craving sleep right now.
    2. Pastel eye makeup: your thoughts?
    Not for me, thanks.
    3. When was the last time you played on a trampoline?
    Oh gosh. It’s been years. Probably early high school?
    4. Your favorite cereal?
    Cheerios are pretty high up there.
    5. Tell me something about your morning:
    I got to have a quick breakfast at a cafe with my hubby this morning! That doesn’t happen too often.
    6. You’re leaving tomorrow to spend a year in which country?
    France, please. I don’t know any French, but I’m sure I could figure it out pretty quick :)
    7. Peter Pan shirt collars: yay or nay?
    Not a big fan, but I’m not opposed to them.
    8. Last time you washed your makeup brushes?
    …I don’t want to talk about it. (At least a month ago. ugh.)
    9. A beauty trend that freaks you out?
    Nothing readily comes to mind.
    10. Weekly goals:
    To get a LOT more sleep than I did last week and to practice more diligently.

    3. When was the last time you played on a trampoline? years and years ago.

    4. Your favorite cereal? currently, cheerios dulce de leche.

    5. Tell me something about your morning: stressful.

    6. You’re leaving tomorrow to spend a year in which country? Italy.

    7. Peter Pan shirt collars: yay or nay? very yay!

    8. Last time you washed your makeup brushes? Sunday afternoon!

    9. A beauty trend that freaks you out? I saw pictures of crystal eyebrows. No. Just no.

    10. Weekly goals: Get over these allergies!!! The change from Winter to Spring always gets me bad!

  9. Stephanie says:

    1. Mood:
    Owie! I did something to my neck getting out of the shower yesterday and it’s been traveling down the rest of my upper back ever since. Thank goodness I have an appointment w/ my chiropractor tonight!

    2. Pastel eye makeup: your thoughts?
    I’ve seen it done “right” so I’m not against it per se…but I’ve also seen it go horribly wrong (think disco Easter egg >.15 years ago now? Wow that made me feel old! They are indeed fun especially when they aren’t child-proofed w/o the netting or bars to hold on to for balance, LOL.

    4. Your favorite cereal?
    If oatmeal counts, then I vote steal cut oats w/ a little bit of milk, raisins and a dash of brown sugar and cinnamon. Yum!

    5. Tell me something about your morning:
    Today was definitely a bad clothes day. It’s waaaay warmer than it should be for March (not complaining), but I haven’t busted out any of my warmer weather work clothes yet.

    6. You’re leaving tomorrow to spend a year in which country?
    Sweden!!! I agree w/ you on the whole wanting to be somewhere where they speak English so as to enable day to day activities such as insurance purchasing and medical visits, but I spent some time there a few years ago and it’s super easy to navigate and communicate. Plus, proximity to Europe proper is REALLY convenient. ;-)

    7. Peter Pan shirt collars: yay or nay?
    Nay. I don’t get them.

    8. Last time you washed your makeup brushes?
    I’m too embarrassed to answer…

    9. A beauty trend that freaks you out?
    Under shave haircut. I’m intrigued and freaked all at the same time. I think it would be pretty nifty for summer though. I *may* try it out yet since hair grows back, right???

    10. Weekly goals:
    Finish out this insanely long to-do list for work! It never ends!!!

  10. 1. Mood: Amazingly good for any day, particularly for a Monday! I didn’t sleep all that much last night (read Hunger Games till the wee hours), but at 7 this morning I woke up and felt pretty good! The sun was shining so I took the opportunity to swatch 5 nail polishes lol

    2. Pastel eye makeup: your thoughts? I think it could really work, but I can’t make it work on myself. For some reason most matte shadows look a bit muddy on me, but maybe it’s because I haven’t found the right ones to try.

    3. When was the last time you played on a trampoline? A LONG time ago! The neighbors from across the street when I was living in Brussels had a trampoline. Their kids hop on that thing literally ALL THE TIME when the weather is good. I was always so tempted to go over and ask if I could play with them, but that’d be TOO awkward…

    4. Your favorite cereal? Muesli with pieces of REAL DARK CHOCOLATE! It’s a guilty pleasure in disguise.

    5. Tell me something about your morning: This morning I was woken up by Tango. He wasn’t even hungry, but he heard the neighbors upstairs so he decided I had also had enough sleep. The minute I woke up and opened the door to the living room, he zoomed in (with Muffin) and began taking a nap. How nice is it to be a cat right?

    6. You’re leaving tomorrow to spend a year in which country? Whoa, I could literally go anywhere for that! I think I’ll survive in any big city with a lot of expats, but I speak enough Mandarin Chinese, English, and French to go anywhere these languages are spoken. Preferably somewhere the weather is nicer and warmer though :p

    7. Peter Pan shirt collars: yay or nay? Nay on myself… Most collars make me look weird!

    8. Last time you washed your makeup brushes? Yesterday (Sunday is usually my brush cleaning day)! I used L’Occitane International Women’s Day soap. It’s super effective but with the 52% of shea butter it doesn’t strip the brushes of their moisture either. It’s a great find!

    9. A beauty trend that freaks you out? Not really… I guess it’s a lil weird to wear a blush as eyeshadow, but it doesn’t really freak me out!

    10. Weekly goals: Keep early hours, finish Mockingjay (possibly going to the movies too but I don’t know if I’ll have the time), and blog on!

    Have a great week Karen (and Tabs. Don’t sneak into the closet anymore lol)!

    Le List

    1. Mood:
    Good! The highs are going to be in the 70s-80s this week and I have a new pedicure. It’s the little things that make me happy. :-)

    2. Pastel eye makeup: your thoughts?
    I like it, but I need to find the right shades to work with my darker skin tone.

    3. When was the last time you played on a trampoline?
    It’s been over 20 years. I used one when when I took gymnastics lessons in middle school.

    4. Your favorite cereal?
    Honey Nut Cherrios with extra honey on top.

    5. Tell me something about your morning:
    We had the windows open in the bedroom b/c the weather has been mild. This morning both kitties were sharing the cat perch by the window sniffing the air and enjoying the breeze. This is rare b/c they don’t always like to share. :-)

    6. You’re leaving tomorrow to spend a year in which country?
    Maybe India because I’d have family there to help me out. There’s so much to see in that country and a year would plenty of time to travel. I’d also love to try somewhere tropical like Costa Rica.

    7. Peter Pan shirt collars: yay or nay?
    Nay. I’ll pass on this trend.

    8. Last time you washed your makeup brushes?
    Yikes – too long to admit. I bought the Burts Bees soap, but I haven’t gotten around to using it yet.

    9. A beauty trend that freaks you out?
    Getting permanent makeup tattooed on your face.

    10. Weekly goals:
    Start researching things to see and do in Boston. I’m going there with my family in May for my brother’s graduation.

    Also, I need to take Mingus for a walk a couple of times this week. He loves being outside when the weather is nice.

    Happy Monday!

    3. When was the last time you played on a trampoline? Probably in high school!

    4. Your favorite cereal? Quaker Oatmeal Squares, hands down. Corn Pops are a close second, but not exactly diet-friendly :)

    5. Tell me something about your morning: I had planned on getting up extra early to hit the gym before work… But hit the snooze button instead ;)

    6. You’re leaving tomorrow to spend a year in which country? England! I’m obsessed with the place, plus they speak English so it’s perfect for a long-term visit.

    7. Peter Pan shirt collars: yay or nay? Again, I don’t hate it, but it’s not for me.

    8. Last time you washed your makeup brushes? Oh boy… January? Haha!

    9. A beauty trend that freaks you out? Anything tattoo-related.

    10. Weekly goals: Make time to hang out with my Godson, it’s been way too long.

  27. Katherine G says:

    I agree, we should all be kind to ourselves this week….we are all probably too hard on ourselves in general!
    1. Mood:
    ~Tired. I don’t know why but I’ve been feeling really run down and a little stressed, despite working out and doing yoga.

    2. Pastel eye makeup: your thoughts?
    ~I like it sometimes. I mainly stick to pastel pinks and blues, though.

    3. When was the last time you played on a trampoline?
    ~Ooooohhh, not in a while. It is a lot of fun and great exercise though!

    4. Your favorite cereal?
    ~Lucky Charms. I’m such a kid at heart!

    5. Tell me something about your morning:
    ~Slept in, read some new magazines, and watched some thunderstorms up here in the mountains of MD.

    6. You’re leaving tomorrow to spend a year in which country?
    ~I like time to plan, too, but I would pick England or Ireland and go there to ride and train horses. Irish horses are some of the best around! I also couldn’t just get up and go somewhere that I don’t speak the language.

    7. Peter Pan shirt collars: yay or nay?
    ~I guess nay, since I don’t wear them much or at all.

    8. Last time you washed your makeup brushes?
    ~A week ago, but I will have to try that Burt’s Bees soap trick!

    9. A beauty trend that freaks you out?
    ~Fake toenails. People don’t realize that fake fingernails and toenails harbor a lot of bacteria (which is why we are not allowed to have fake fingernails in the healthcare world). There are so many nail strengtheners and nail growers out there, and if people get fake toenails to cover up brittle toenails or toenail fungus, there are remedies for that, too. In fact, the fake toenails would make either of those issues a lot worse.

    10. Weekly goals:
    ~Go running, work out to some new videos, cook more this week even if I’m bored with what we have in the house, and work on getting signed up for various forms of continuing education now that I am finally done with my bachelor’s :)

    3. When was the last time you played on a trampoline? Probably about 5 years.. I’m kind of a scaredy cat so I was never the one who wanted to bounce the highest or anything!

    5. Tell me something about your morning: Had a dental appointment which was painful. It was only a cleaning but my gums have been swollen from flossing so I wasn’t particularly comfortable. Nothing very exciting happened this morning.
    6. You’re leaving tomorrow to spend a year in which country? Ooooh! That would be so exciting! I’d probably pick Spain or something.. I love Spain and speak Spanish pretty well.
    7. Peter Pan shirt collars: yay or nay? I think they can look really cute, but can end up looking like a disaster sometimes! Yaynay?

  31. TrippyPixie says:

    1. Mood: Very tired. Even though I went to bed early last night, I only got 2 hours of sleep. I tossed and turned for 5 hours straight, and during that time I did not have a single moment of unconsciousness. I won’t let myself take a nap today, otherwise I’ll end up going to bed late tonight.

    2. Pastel eye makeup: your thoughts?: Never, since pastels look terrible on me. I personally think that pastels are nasty colors that very few people look good in.

    3. When was the last time you played on a trampoline?: About 5 years ago.

    4. Your favorite cereal?: Trix.

    5. Tell me something about your morning: My morning felt like the beginning of “Fight Club”. Specifically the part where The Narrator’s day at work is all wacky and unfocused since he’s suffering from insomnia.

    6. You’re leaving tomorrow to spend a year in which country?: Probably Austria, since I have family there. With its location, I’d also be able to visit other European countries easily.

    7. Peter Pan shirt collars: yay or nay?: Nay. I’ve never been a fan of them.

    8. Last time you washed your makeup brushes?: …Quite a while ago. Must clean them tonight.

    9. A beauty trend that freaks you out?: Long, fake nails horrify me. Last week, a girl in my one class was trying to eat a bag of Cheetos with her 1.5 inch fake nails. It was disgusting.

    10. Weekly goals: Actually get homework done. I also need to clean my room and go through my closet, so I can give clothes I no longer wear to charity.

    4. Your favorite cereal? Nestle Fitness with dark chocolate.

    5. Tell me something about your morning: I usually spend at least 15 minutes looking out of the window with a cup of coffee. I love looking at the street below coming to life and getting busy.

    6. You’re leaving tomorrow to spend a year in which country? This actually happened to me when I was a kid. It wasn’t exactly tomorrow, but at a two-week notice. My mom got a great job opportunity in Cyprus so we just packed the essentials and left and stayed for 18 months.
    But if I could pick one, it would probably be France or Italy. Anywhere in Europe would do since that’s where I live anyway, so I wouldn’t be far from home. Outside of Europe, the US, preferably Boston.

    7. Peter Pan shirt collars: yay or nay? Yay. I think they can look quite chic if done properly.

    8. Last time you washed your makeup brushes? Last week.

    9. A beauty trend that freaks you out? Those diamond-encrusted teeth that Kanye West sported a few years back.

    10. Weekly goals: Sightseeing, dining and shopping in Barcelona. Yay for holidays!

  33. Maria says:

    1. Mood:Tired of being sick

    10. Weekly goals:Get through this week at work.

  34. Katie says:

    1. Mood: Out of it and a bit cranky. Today was the first day of school after a (very short) Spring Break. Bleh. I’m going to weasel back into my bed soon.

    2. Pastel eye makeup: your thoughts? Nay! I rarely see pastels working on clothing, let alone makeup. I just don’t find them flattering.

    3. When was the last time you played on a trampoline? Good question…I don’t know!

    4. Your favorite cereal? I love those Quaker Oatmeal Squares or the Special K cereals.

    5. Tell me something about your morning: It was difficult getting up, and I missed breakfast because of it.

    6. You’re leaving tomorrow to spend a year in which country? First thought was Canada, too. I actually think there’s a lot you can explore in such a large country like that.

    7. Peter Pan shirt collars: yay or nay? Yay (or yea?) I think they’re youthful, and this trend I can see working on most people.

    8. Last time you washed your makeup brushes? Last night. WIth MAC Brush Cleanser.

    9. A beauty trend that freaks you out? Agreed with the talon nails trend (you could hurt someone or yourself with those daggers!). I don’t mind so much tattooed eyebrows because I’ve seen some that don’t look too artificial, but I can’t understand why one would be compelled to shave off her hairs, then create new ones with a totally unflattering shape. Wouldn’t you at least want shape and structure?

    10. Weekly goals: Honestly – just to get through the week (I’m hormonal). Start homework & reading I procrastinated on during break.

    Karen, what did you think of that Walking Dead season finale?!
    1) AMAZING ZOMBIE OUTBREAK! The burning barn! The blood! Yesss.
    2) Lori. Go away. Your reaction to Rick’s confession was selfish. She egged him on earlier in the season.
    3) Rick caught the Crazy really quickly. It was gonna come at some point, but I didn’t imagine him losing it so suddenly.
    4) Andrea is a BAMF. I can’t believe she held off into the morning!
    5) WHOA, KATANA LADY. You’re a BAMF, too.
    I’m kinda bummed that this entire season was just a setup to the predictably-more-thrilling events next season. I hope the group is done bickering so much.

  35. Becky says:

    1. Mood: Tired! Can’t get my act together vis-a-vis going to bed at a non-ridiculous hour lately. And also tense, I have a lot of things going on this week/past week including a job interview! NERVOUS!
    2. Pastel eye makeup: your thoughts?: Hmm, not for me I think. Although who knows? I’ll try it out!
    3. When was the last time you played on a trampoline? Probably a couple of years ago. Although I used to compete in trampolining! I can do a mean back somersault :)

    5. Tell me something about your morning: A couple of my friends back home from uni for the weekend came over and we had pancakes and bacon! Yum :)
    6. You’re leaving tomorrow to spend a year in which country? USA! I want to go to Seattle so bad. It’s my dream to move to America…hopefully one day in the future.
    7. Peter Pan shirt collars: yay or nay? Nay, I hate having high collars, I feel like I’m being choked!
    8. Last time you washed your makeup brushes? Last Tuesday I think. I was going to do it yesterday but I got distracted watching Homeland :) and then today, but then pancakes! I will definitely do it tomorrow…
    9. A beauty trend that freaks you out? Anything related to tanning basically. Fake bottle tan, spray tan, tanning beds…people should accept the colour they are and love it! Plus I find it strange that some people go to so much effort to get skin the colour of mine, when us “minorities” (ugh, hate that word!) still face prejudice because of it. What a strange world…
    10. Weekly goals: Oh man, eat at least one piece of fruit this week! Nail the interview :) Do some writing work. Have fun!

  36. jen. says:

    Ewww! Press on fingernails are bad enough- press on toenails sound extra creepy!

    2. Pastel eye makeup: your thoughts? It looks good on other people. I feel like I’m already too pasty and pale to pull it off.
    3. When was the last time you played on a trampoline? Around junior high age? My best friend in elementary school and junior high had one. It was fun!
    4. Your favorite cereal? Honey Nut Cheerios (to eat like cereal) and Cinnamon Toast Crunch (as a snack)

    7. Peter Pan shirt collars: yay or nay? nay nay nay.

    8. Last time you washed your makeup brushes? a week or two ago?

    9. A beauty trend that freaks you out? fake nails in any way, shape, or form. tacky, and gross! I had a boss at a restaurant who wore talons, and I’m like… that is NOT SANITARY for a waitress.

    10. Weekly goals: 3 cardio workouts, study for my Managerial Accounting exam (on Wednesday)

  38. Kate & Zena says:

    When I was 14.

    4. Your favorite cereal?
    Cinnamon Toast Crunch and Lucky Charms.

    5. Tell me something about your morning:
    It was awful! I woke up to my tooth screaming in pain! I was like, “This is going to be a LONG three days.” I have no idea how I’m going to survive. The good thing was Zena knew and pretty much coddled me!

    6. You’re leaving tomorrow to spend a year in which country?
    France. I need a place to fully immerse myself to fully learn the language, and what better place than France? Plus, I love most French food.

    A big YAY for me. They look really good on me!

    Last week Sunday. I should probably wash them. Ha ha ha ha ha.

    -Transfer all my polishes to my new and bigger bins!

  39. Stef Smith says:

    1. Mood: Surprisingly perky for a Monday!
    2. Pastel eye makeup: your thoughts? Not for me, it’s too precious of a look for me.
    3. When was the last time you played on a trampoline? Three weeks ago! We had one, but unfortunately the house we’ve moved to doesn’t have enough room for a trampoline. They are the BEST!
    4. Your favorite cereal? My homemade coconut almond granola!

  40. Raven says:

    It’s a good one! I’m mostly just excited that we’ve rounded the final lap in our much anticipated race for the Hunger Games movie night.
    2. Pastel eye makeup: your thoughts?
    Not a fan. I find it looks a little like you have some kind of skin irritation or kidney failure because it’s just a wash. If I’m wearing makeup, I want people to see it, not ask if I’m an afternoon drinker.

    Last summer at my (now) Ex boyfriend’s house. gotta take em down for those cold Canadian winters, though.

    No idea what those are!!

    8. Last time you washed your makeup brushes?
    Oooooh. Rather not answer that. Excuse me for a minute….

    9. A beauty trend that freaks you out?
    Besides plastic surgery?… I’d say acrylic/gel nails. I think long nails are grosses it is, but to fake em, and to use chemicals and stuff freaks me right out!!

    10. Weekly goals:
    Run in between rugby practises, make lunches everyday, find wallet, enjoy movie :)

  41. Adrienne says:

    1. Mood:
    Pretty good, looking very much forward to me and the gf’s 2 year anniversary on Wednesday :)

    2. Pastel eye makeup: your thoughts?
    Don’t do it much, but have played with pinks recently an liked them. I guess I’m just very drawn to darker shades. 

    3. When was the last time you played on a trampoline?
    Haha, oh man, yeeeears ago!

    France, France, France, in a heartbeat. If you had 2 tickets and a magic kitty transporter to give me, (maybe a magic stuff transporter too!),  I’d leave tomorrow!

    7. Peter Pan shirt collars: yay or nay?
    Had to google this one lol, they look like they’d be cute in a retro way!

    8. Last time you washed your makeup brushes?
    A few days ago I washed a few, will wash my foundation brush tonight. With my new foundation I find I have to wash my brush pretty often, it gets kinda stiff, but it’s totally worth it because it’s HG on an epic level. The new Lancôme Teint Idole 24HR = absolute love!!!! 
    (I have oily very acne prone skin with big angry red bumps, large pores, and some dry areas around treated pimples, and in a rush i can even toss this on without concealer and leave the house feeling perfectly confident!! )

    9. A beauty trend that freaks you out?
    Arent there luxury products with caviar in them? Yech!! Dead fish eggs on my face, no thanks!!! (also note that I’m a vegetarian, so double no way)

    10. Weekly goals:
    Too many to list, ugh. But at least my Wednesday will be amazing :)

    1.) Mood: Happy :) My bf of 5 years just got accepted into Paramedic school on Friday!!

    5.) Tell me something about your morning: I slept in (rare on a Monday)…and then I ate some frosted toast crunch! haha
    6.) You’re leaving tomorrow to spend a year in which country? Japan! Looooove the culture annnd the Japanese makeup brands are amazzzzing! I would be coming home with like 5 suitcases full!! Korea would be cool too for the same reason.
    7.) Peter Pan shirt collars: yay or nay? I’m not a fan of the peter pan collars when they are really tight and high up on the neck…however, I do like tops that have the peter pan collar type fabric flaps, but that are a little lower cut a more flowy (if that makes any sense to you..)
    8.) Last time you washed your makeup brushes? I have a sad confession for a beauty junkie…I hardly ever use makeup brushes. I know, it’s crazy… I usually either use my fingers or 1 or 2 of the multitasking or dual-ended brushes I do have. I try to wash them every 2 weeks or so since I don’t use them every day. But I wipe them with a face wipe after each use. I am secretly coveting a Mac 188 Brush though! (I think thats the one, it’s the smaller 187)
    9.) A beauty trend that freaks you out? There are a few…really long fingernails, feather extensions (I just wonder if they really clean those feathers all that well), bad self-tan jobs, really thick eyebrows, women having bones in their feet removed so they can fit into Jimmy Choos..ya know, the usual
    10.) Weekly Goals: I agree with you on this one Karen :) I think that being kinder to yourself is an amazing goal any day !

    1. Mood:
    Stressed! Heaps of tests and exams coming up TT TT

    2. Pastel eye makeup: your thoughts?
    Love it! It’s very feminine and always fresh.

    3. When was the last time you played on a trampoline?
    …Maybe 3 years ago. When I was still in junior high.

    4. Your favorite cereal?
    I like me some oats. Actually no. I STRONGLY dislike all cereals!

    5. Tell me something about your morning:
    Every morning I stay in bed till the last minute and then rush like crazy without doing my makeup.

    6. You’re leaving tomorrow to spend a year in which country?
    JAPAN! I love the customer service, the MAKEUP (of course) and the people! I never feel like an outsider there <3

    7. Peter Pan shirt collars: yay or nay?
    Big YAY! They are the cutest things… but maybe because it's because I'm still in my teens.

    8. Last time you washed your makeup brushes?
    Maybe a week ago…?

    9. A beauty trend that freaks you out?
    Hmm there aren't really much that freaks me out, per se, but I'd probably run away from anyone with one-hair's-width eyebrows @_@

    10. Weekly goals:
    Lose 2kg! Then stick to it until my formal (prom?) so I can look pretty <3 Also try to stay away from department stores until school finishes.

    Um, I’m officially renaming this the Tuesday Poll for me. I can never seem to get here on Monday! :)

    1. Mood: Today, much better. Had a touch of the flu for the last few days and, despite yesterday being my b’day, I was stuck in meetings all day long.
    2. Pastel eye makeup: your thoughts? Pink and peach are OK on me. Blues and greens, not so much.
    3. When was the last time you played on a trampoline? Oh, gosh, I had my friends’ mini tramp and used to bounce around on my nephew’s moon shoes but that was before the knee surgery. So, maybe 4 years ago? I’ve never been on a giant, backyard one, sadly.
    4. Your favorite cereal? Well, I’m not really a cereal person. Maybe I’d pick Cinnamon Life.
    5. Tell me something about your morning: I bounded out of the house for work in shorts today (it’s supposed to be in the high 70s) and got hit with a cloud of my own breath because it was only 40 degrees. Happily, it’s warmed up to the 70s now, but that was quite a shocker!
    6. You’re leaving tomorrow to spend a year in which country? Definitely Canada – it’s about 1/4 of a mile from me so it would be almost like living at home so I’d see my friends and family every day. Like you, if I had some prep time (and could bring all my people with me!), I’d choose Italy, Germany or Switzerland.
    7. Peter Pan shirt collars: yay or nay? Nay for me – I try to stick to v-neck only.
    8. Last time you washed your makeup brushes? You’re supposed to wash your makeup brushes??? :)
    9. A beauty trend that freaks you out? I don’t know if this counts as either beauty or a trend, but I’m a little freaked out by seeing huge gauges in people’s earlobes. I mean, to each his own, but it kind of creeps me out to be able to see through someone’s ear.
    10. Weekly goals: Feed my family a healthy dinner every night this week. No take out!

  45. Em says:

    1. Mood: Meh. I just got back from NYC, and although it was great, travelling makes me crazy tired.
    2. Pastel eye makeup: your thoughts? I suppose if executed correctly…and even still, I think it looks best on dark skin tones or models. I am neither.
    3. When was the last time you played on a trampoline? A year ago! My best friend has a huge one in her backyard.
    4. Your favorite cereal? Just Right. Isn’t that just the most boring answer of all time? Oh well, I love it.
    5. Tell me something about your morning: I woke up, got in the car and drove for four hours from New York!
    6. You’re leaving tomorrow to spend a year in which country? France, because I can speak fluent French and, um…THE FOOD. Need I say more?
    7. Peter Pan shirt collars: yay or nay? YAY. Love them.
    8. Last time you washed your makeup brushes? About three weeks ago…bad, I know.
    9. A beauty trend that freaks you out? Far-out nails…like, the fake ones. Fake nails freak me out.
    10. Weekly goals: Have more energy.

  46. Bronwyn says:

    1. Mood: Can tired be a mood?
    2. Pastel eye makeup: your thoughts? Personally I don’t say no to any coloured eye make-up. Of all the make-up locations I sort of figure it to be a free for all. On me personally? Once or twice but not really.
    3. When was the last time you played on a trampoline? Last year when I went to gymnastics with a friend for a matter of weeks – we are talking a proper trampolining tramp as well – soo much fun
    4. Your favorite cereal? Just Right. Seriously the catch cry ‘not to heavy, not to light – its just right’ is exactly how it is for me.
    5. Tell me something about your morning:
    I woke up to the first heavy fog of the Canberra winter (and its only Autumn :( )
    6. You’re leaving tomorrow to spend a year in which country?
    UK. – seriously though anywhere. a life ambition to live overseas somewhere.

    8. Last time you washed your makeup brushes? Sunday – at least the powder brush and blush brush i use regularly i did.
    9. A beauty trend that freaks you out?
    Dermal piercing – this is just asking for trouble. and personally a nice piece of proper jewellery is much prettier
    10. Weekly goals:
    Do something (anything) for my thesis.
    Go to the gym.
