Makeup and Beauty Blog Monday Poll, Vol. 213

Published in: Just For Fun

the makeup and beauty blog monday poll

  • 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:
    Hyper! I just downed a huge cup of coffee and my brain feels like it’s moving at light speed and I can’t use punctuation because it’ll slow me down and I just hope I can stay focused enough to take advantage of this huge surge of energy!
  2. A piece of clothing in your closet that you’ve kept, even though it doesn’t fit?
    A cute pair of pinstriped gray-and-white Bebe pants that I’ve had since around 1999 because I think, “If I had a pound of Crisco, four hours and a miracle, maybe, just maybe…”

    I think they’ve gone out and come back into style at least twice over that time.

  3. Do you sleep on your back, tummy or side?
    Yes. :)

    LOL! But mostly my back, which is both comfortable for me and convenient for Tabs. It lets him fall asleep on my chest, and then spring off my exposed belly at 5 in the morning.

    Ah, the things we do for our pets…

  4. Game of Thrones moment! If your house had an official sigil/seal, what would it be?
    A chunky gray tabby with a low-hanging belly.
  5. Did you ever have a sticker (or other kind of) collection? If you did, do you remember what happened to it?
    I had a sticker collection, but I have no idea what happened to it. I remember seeing it at my parents’ house about 10 years ago, but then it disappeared.

    I think they may have thrown it out and just don’t want to admit it… I had some really great stickers in there, too! My scratch-and-sniff and Lisa Frank collections were epic. EPIC!

  6. What’s your commute like?
    Now? It’s not bad (about 40 feet), but I’ve had some doozies involving boats, buses and even trains that took me more than an hour to get to work.

    One of the drawbacks of my current commute is that it’s tough to maintain boundaries, since I live and work (and share a room with my kitty employer) in the same building. I often snap pictures and sit at the computer at all hours of the day and night.

  7. One small thing that brings you joy?
    Pulling up to a parking meter and finding leftover time on the clock… Love that!
  8. What’s your favorite month and why?
    June, because it’s when my brother and I have our birthdays. Plus, it’s the summer gateway month.
  9. Last drugstore beauty product that you really, really loved?
    Sonia Kashuk’s A Powerful Punch Nail Kit. I loved (and still do) the summery colors and tiny bottles. That green shade? Making Waves? That one’s my favorite.
  10. Weekly goals:
    To make appointments to see a dentist and an optometrist, to run five miles on the treadmill twice, to eat more fruit than I did last week (because I’ve been slacking on the fiber front lately), to go through the piles of paperwork on my desk (and the surrounding floor), and to try to stay on task.

Hey, hey, Monday! :) So. Game of Thrones. Did you watch…? I quite enjoyed the season premiere, although I had to keep telling myself not to get attached to any of the characters. I keep hoping/wanting good things for Arya Stark and Jon Snow.

And speaking of GOT, I asked Tabs last night how he felt about us adopting a dire wolf. Unsurprisingly, he hated the idea.

    1. Mood:
    Relaxed. It’s spring break, and even though I’m working, it’s nice that the pace can drop down a notch!
    2. A piece of clothing in your closet that you’ve kept, even though it doesn’t fit?
    I have a pair of pants or two that are too big. I should really just toss them.
    3. Do you sleep on your back, tummy or side?
    All three! I think my back and side get equal usage – my tummy is an occasional occurrence.
    4. Game of Thrones moment! If your house had an official sigil/seal, what would it be?
    A bard, I think… or a troubadour… Someone who makes music. :) And they would be holding something that looks like a lyre.
    5. Did you ever have a sticker (or other kind of) collection?
    No. I always wanted to get into collecting things, but I was really bad at it, lol. I’d get like, 2 rocks and then lose interest.
    6. What’s your commute like?
    Not bad! I have about a 25 minute walk to work. It’s a nice morning wake-up. Maybe not as exciting in the snow, but oh well.
    7. A small thing that brings you joy?
    Seeing the trees start to bud…. love it!
    8. What’s your favorite month and why?
    Geez, I don’t know if I could pick a favorite. Maybe July or August? I love those hot months. But every month has some small charm. Except February. I’m pretty sure February just sucks.
    9. Last drugstore beauty product that you loved?
    My Sonia Kashuk medium fluffy eyeshadow brush. That thing is the BOMB. Now I need to go back and look for a blush brush… the one I have now works, but I want one that kicks a little more @ss.
    10. Weekly goals:
    To relax a bit, enjoy the sun when it’s out, and to practice a little more piano…

    2. A piece of clothing in your closet that you’ve kept, even though it doesn’t fit? A light green dress, backless but ties aross the back (perfect bra coverage)… Hoping that one day I may find myself in it, although its been 15years.. lol
    3. Do you sleep on your back, tummy or side? I start on my tummy, role to my side but wake up on my back… 1 cat at my feet (she takes her chances of not being kicked in the head) and 1 cat to my right, snuggled into my neck..
    4. Game of Thrones moment! If your house had an official sigil/seal, what would it be? Something carved out of wood – maybe a set of cat eyes.
    5. Did you ever have a sticker (or other kind of) collection? I think I collected collections.. lol – There were the sticker albums, stamp collections, coin collections, eraser collections, etc…
    6. What’s your commute like? I miss the days of being 10minutes away from my office, now my jobsite is downtown which is 30-45minutes on a good day commute..
    7. A small thing that brings you joy? cat naps.
    8. What’s your favorite month and why? July – its summer, the cottage is open and everything is green …

    2. A piece of clothing in your closet that you’ve kept, even though it doesn’t fit?

    A navy blue blazer that’s really structured and doesn’t allow me to move around much. I keep thinking I’ll use it someday for an interview or something and then realize that I actually have to be able to wheel myself around.

    I alternate throughout the night between side and tummy.

    When Missy jumps on my lap and starts purring.

    10. Weekly goals:

    All I’m asking of myself these days is to keep breathing, take things one day at a time, and to continue to accept support from people around me (I’m much more comfortable being the one giving the support).

The sigili would be a rising sun, and the motto will be “The sun will always give light, even in the darkest of times.” Uhmm yeah. Ive thought about this, and yes, im such a nerd.

    5. Did you ever have a sticker (or other kind of) collection? I collect teacups and coffee mugs.

    6. What’s your commute like? Quick, takes about 10-15 minutes from the house to the office. Not always easy though since I pass by several schools on the way and its always busy that time of the day.

    3. Do you sleep on your back, tummy or side? Usually side, sometimes back.

    • Karen says:

      Hi Fieran,

      I love your latte idea. I think might have to do that with a soy chai this afternoon. :) You’re so right — getting out of the office even for just a few minutes really helps.

      Oh, your sigil idea is too cute! :)

      • Fieran says:

        It does help to “step away from the scene” sometimes. Helps me keep my cool. The thing I have learned over the years is that the person who is always calm is the person whom everyone kind of gravitates towards, you know?

        Hehehe I couldn’t think of any other sigil that would best represent the two of us ;)

    2. A piece of clothing in your closet that you’ve kept, even though it doesn’t fit?

    1. Mood: In desperate need of a mocha coconut frappuccino! Starbucks, I’m on my way! It’s the first day of Easter vacation for my kids, and they’re already bored out of their minds.

    2. A piece of clothing in your closet that you’ve kept, even though it doesn’t fit? I have a ruffly red dress that is so sexy but it’s just a wee bit on the too tight side. But I’ll keep it forever!

    4. Game of Thrones moment! If your house had an official sigil/seal, what would it be? I don’t watch that show, so I have no idea what a sigil is! We have a family cheer, it’s mostly to embarrass our 9 year old daughter when she doesn’t want to give a bye-bye kiss or acknowledge our existence!

    5. Did you ever have a sticker (or other kind of) collection? I had a fantastic sticker collection! And an awesome unicorn collection (I still sleep with a stuffed unicorn I got when I was 8, I’m 36 now!). Loved them both!

    7. A small thing that brings you joy? Mocha Coconut Frappuccinos from Starbucks! Quite possibly heaven in a cup! And always, new fingernail polish!

    1. Mood:
    2. A piece of clothing in your closet that you’ve kept, even though it doesn’t fit? A pair of Banana Republic skinny jeans that, when having a good diet day, I can JUST squeeze into. When I bought them they were originally $110 on sale for $15! How could I resist?
    3. Do you sleep on your back, tummy or side? Side…but I’m a restless sleeper so during the night I flop around a lot :P
    4. Game of Thrones moment! If your house had an official sigil/seal, what would it be? Hmmm…probably a bottle of Nutella because if we were to ever go without there would for sure be an epic war ;)
    5. Did you ever have a sticker (or other kind of) collection? I had a key chain collection for a while. It got pretty epic.
    6. What’s your commute like? 40 minutes to school, 50 minutes back.
    7. A small thing that brings you joy? Buying a new magazine, lipgloss and Mars bar at the drugstore. It’s pretty much a sure-fire way to get me in a good mood, if coffee isn’t in sight :)
    8. What’s your favorite month and why? December. Why? In a word: Christmas.
    9. Last drugstore beauty product that you loved? Revlon nail polish in Gold Coin. I now incorporate it into every manicure! Sometimes I’ll even paint it onto one finger just to look at how pretty it is in the light :P Is that weird?

    5. Did you ever have a sticker (or other kind of) collection? I used to. I had to go to the doctor a lot growing up.

    6. What’s your commute like? Not bad, but come fall I have a 30 to 40 minute drive to the main branch of University. But that then puts me close to my twin at his school so I can crash at his place if the snow gets too bad.

    7. A small thing that brings you joy? The cat jumping up onto my lap when I have a bad day.

    2. A piece of clothing in your closet that you’ve kept, even though it doesn’t fit? I have a tank top a friend made for me when I was in HS. Three of us from work were dubbed the Gummi Bear Commandos, and my friend painted tank tops for us with a gummy bear on them. Mine’s green.
    3. Do you sleep on your back, tummy or side? Usually my back, but it switches around to accommodate Enzo hogging the bed.

    1. Mood – Meh. Pretty tired. Definitely did not catch up on sleep over spring break. If anything, I made my off sleeping habits worse!
    2. A t-shirt from a Sugarland concert, the first actual concert I ever went to. It still kind of fits…
    3. I almost always start out on my right side and end up on my left. When I’m really really tired I will fall asleep on my stomach.
    4. A microscope with a fingerprint. I am very into forensic science, and intend to pursue it as a career. Plus, it’s just cool.
    5. I had a collection of smiley face stickers from Wal-Mart on my door when I was about 6. Then my mom made me take them off.
    6. I am my own transportation. I can usually get a ride to school from my mom in the morning, but then I have to walk home, which takes almost exactly 30 minutes in perfect weather if I get to take my shortcut. I can’t wait to get my driver’s license!
    7. Not getting homework in a class. Not getting homework in any class on a weekend would be ideal, but I don’t think that will ever happen.
    8. June – it’s summer and my birthday and school is done.
    9. I so far have only used drugstore brands, though I am trying to save up for some Urban Decay, but the best drugstore thing I have found so far is Maybelline Master Drama Eyeliner. It literally stays on forever, especially the black.

  24. Marian says:

  25. Melissa says:

    1. Mood: Meh, I think I’m getting sick!

    2. A piece of clothing in your closet that you’ve kept, even though it doesn’t fit?: A cute blazer from H&M that’s lots of years old. It’s probably not wearable any more, I just haven’t gotten around to getting rid of it.

    3. Do you sleep on your back, tummy or side?: My side and my back. And when I sleep on my back I keep my knees bent and crossed like Mister Rogers. Weirdest comment I’ve ever received regarding sleeping position.

    4. Game of Thrones moment! If your house had an official sigil/seal, what would it be?: No idea!

    5. Did you ever have a sticker (or other kind of) collection?: Um. Spice Girls. Like the kind you got with the lollipops. I was in middle school at the time!

    6. What’s your commute like?: A nightmare, to say the least. I never learned how to drive, and my new university is some place where you need to drive. I take a bus to the train station, then a train upstate, then another bus. Takes about 2.5-3 hours. Each way.

    7. A small thing that brings you joy?: Diptyque candles.

    8. What’s your favorite month and why?: October. It’s all autumn-y and my mom’s birthday.

    10. Weekly goals: Study. I feel like that’s always my weekly goals.

    2. A piece of clothing in your closet that you’ve kept, even though it doesn’t fit?
    Ask me next week. I’m in the process of cleaning out my closets this week. Already have 15 pairs of shoes to donate.

    3. Do you sleep on your back, tummy or side?
    Side mostly, followed by back.

    4. Game of Thrones moment! If your house had an official sigil/seal, what would it be?
    Hands together like in the prayer or namaste position. Since I’m Thai, that’s how we say, “Hello.” I consider it more of a welcome than a religious symbol.

    5. Did you ever have a sticker (or other kind of) collection?
    I used to collect rocks and sticks when walking. When I picked up a leaf, stick, or rock, I was feeling gratitude and joy from simply being. I wanted to honor the moment with something small and tangible from nature. I have no idea what happened to all of debris. I think my mom threw them away when cleaning the house.

    6. What’s your commute like?
    Long, but not rushed. I take back roads to get to my office; cutting through state game lands and farms. For clients located closer to the city, I schedule them when there isn’t any rush traffic.

    7. A small thing that brings you joy?
    Valentine heart shaped Altoid tins. I LOVE them. I was so taken by the design that I went to every CVS in my area to buy them all. I gave most of them away and kept about 10 for myself.

    8. What’s your favorite month and why?
    August. There’s a birthday every week in my immediate family. Lots of celebrating life.

    9. Last drugstore beauty product that you loved?
    Revlon’s Photo Ready Foundation. Love the finish more than… gasp … Chanel Perfection Lumiere.

    10. Weekly goals: Purchase a birthday present for my niece. Clean and organize my closets. Donate tons of clothes, shoes, and household goods to the Goodwill.

  27. Nikki B. says:

  28. Bronwyn says:

    1. Mood:
    Can exhausted be a mood?
    2. A piece of clothing in your closet that you’ve kept, even though it doesn’t fit?
    I have a couple of uniform skirts that… well they fit. but they were issued a size to big and it would be incredibly unflattering to wear them… but they hang there… can’t be throwing uniforms out.
    3. Do you sleep on your back, tummy or side?
    Either my tummy or my back… which means i do a fair bit of the washing machine before I get comfortable some nights.
    4. Game of Thrones moment! If your house had an official sigil/seal, what would it be?
    No idea what you are talking about here ;)
    5. Did you ever have a sticker (or other kind of) collection?
    I didn’t collect stickers so much as I didn’t ever use the stickers I was given and they accumulated (I couldn’t handle the thought of using a sticker in case I had something better to use it for later.) I did (and still do) collect in circulation coins and at one point collected notebook paper. ((does this make me a hoarder? I think so))
    6. What’s your commute like?
    I live at work (not to be confused with I work at home).
    7. A small thing that brings you joy?
    Opening Draw Something and having a game in which it is my turn.
    8. What’s your favorite month and why?
    September when the Spring breezes come through.
    9. Last drugstore beauty product that you loved?
    Essence Stay With Me Lipgloss in I Like Cotton Candy. I was totally surprised by how much I enjoy the heavily blue-based pink and its lasting power. For $3 in Australia that is totally ridiculous.
    10. Weekly goals:
    Not embarrass myself at my thesis meeting.
    Hand in my lab report on time.
    Avoid eating chocolate until Easter Sunday.

    1. Mood: Chipper. Spring is FINALLY here to stay in the Great North.

    2. A piece of clothing in your closet that you’ve kept, even though it doesn’t fit? The dress I wore to the first high school formal. I was about 5 inches shorter and a whole lot skinnier/smaller, so I’d have to grease myself up with crisco to squeeze/slide into the dress, but I kept it because I remembered how grown up and posh I felt in my first “fancy” dress.

    3. Do you sleep on your back, tummy or side? Side or back, but I roll around a lot.

    4. Game of Thrones moment! If your house had an official sigil/seal, what would it be? A cat! CCL in the hausssss!

    5. Did you ever have a sticker (or other kind of) collection? Stamp collection (my dad used to travel a lot for work and he’d send me a postcard from every country he was in)!

    6. What’s your commute like? On days that I drive… about 30-40 minutes in normal traffic with the local classic rock station, on days that I take the commuter train or bus… about 45 minutes to 1 hour while I read on my Kobo app.

    7. A small thing that brings you joy? Getting a good morning text from the boyfriend (he starts working at 7am so he leaves much earlier than I do) around the time I leave for work.

    8. What’s your favorite month and why? July – summer is in full swing!

    9. Last drugstore beauty product that you loved? This is a French “pharmacie” product (not traditionally “drugstore” like Revlon or Maybelline) Nuxe Reve de Miel Lip Balm and Burt’s Bees Tinted Lip Balm in Hibiscus.

    10. Weekly goals: Take a walk outside when it’s sunny :)
