Makeup and Beauty Blog Monday Poll, Vol. 247

Published in: Just For Fun

the makeup and beauty blog monday poll for november 26, 2012

Currently obsessed with bunnies…

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:
    Excellent! :) I love the holidays, even though it’s technically not even December yet.
  2. Do you wear workout clothing when you’re aren’t working out?
    I didn’t used to, but then I found Zella, which is like Nordstrom’s in-house, less expensive version of Lululemon.

    They make some pretty fashionable stretchy pants and shirts. I mean, they still look like workout clothes, sure, but their little design details and colors make it look like you’re at least trying and haven’t completely given up, LOL!

  3. If you were a pilot, what would be your call sign (like Starbuck, Boomer and Apollo from Battlestar Galactica)?
    I’d be 9 Lives, and Tabs would be Big Boy. :)

    Can you imagine Tabs in the cockpit of a fighter jet with his little helmet on?? It would need cutouts for his ears.

    Gawd, I’m such a cat lady…

  4. Are you doing any shopping for Cyber Monday?
    I haven’t yet, but if a tube of NARS Pure Radiant Tinted Moisturizer accidentally falls into my cart during the NARS Friends and Family sale (through Tuesday, get 20% off all orders at narscosmetics.com with code NARSFF2012 at checkout), I wouldn’t take it out.

  5. What are three things you’re loving in your makeup bag now?
    Chanel Le Volume Mascara (life changing, babe!), Laura Mercier Creme
    Metallic Eye Colour in Gold
    and Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector in Moonstone.

    I’ve been into that wide-eyed, glowing, dewy skin look lately, and these three have been helping me get there.

  6. Have you done any decorating around the house for the holidays yet?
    Not yet, but I can’t wait! I want to get the tree and window lights up by next weekend.
  7. Do you like it when it snows?
    It doesn’t snow here in the Bay Area, but I live within driving distance of places that get a lot of snow every winter and don’t feel the urge to visit those places because of the white stuff…

    I’m not really big on being cold and wet.

  8. Did you Skype anyone over Thanksgiving?
    Nope, not this time. I’ve had to in the past because we’d spend the day with either El Hub’s family in Hawaii or my family here. This time, though, both sets of parents came to our house to celebrate. It was nice having everyone under one roof.
  9. Any plans to go ice skating over the holidays?
    Heck, yeah! I may not be into snow, but get me on a pair of skates, and I’m happy as a clam (on skates).

    I think I’m that one one annoying person who likes to zip around everyone else at top speed! — because I still haven’t figured out how to stop without running into people or walls.

  10. Weekly goals:
    Be mindful of the time I spend on different tasks (seriously, this is one of my biggest challenges week after week), keep the living room from falling into disarray again after it was all straightened out for Thanksgiving, start my Christmas shopping, and try to not be so fearful of change (I’m going to try getting up earlier in the morning to help with my schedule).

Hello, my friend. Happy Monday! :)

Okay, kinda random, but you know how I’m a fan of Battlestar Galactica, right? Well, they’ve got this new series of 10-minute webisodes on Youtube right now called Blood & Chrome, which follows a young William Adama, fresh out of flight school, on his first mission in the Cylon War.

I think you’ll like it if you enjoyed the Sci-Fi Channel version of the series that was on a few years ago.

Sorry! Sidetrack over. Let’s get back to the Monday Poll, shall we? :)

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

Karen

    Work’s been so busy today that I don’t have time to fill in the whole poll but I have been trying to order Nars Luster blush and every time I submit the order it says “an unexpected error has occurred” :-/ bummer.

    2. What’s your stance on wearing workout clothes in public when you’re not working out?
    depends what they are… I believe that sweatpants to a movie or after a workout is fine, or a hoodie and stuff. Plus yoga pants are pretty much just pants now, anyway. Do i do it? not that often, no.

    3. If you were a pilot and got to have a call sign (like Helo, Starbuck, Boomer or Apollo from Battlestar Galactica), what would it be?

    2. What’s your stance on wearing workout clothes in public when you’re not working out? Actually I don’t !

    3. If you were a pilot and got to have a call sign (like Helo, Starbuck, Boomer or Apollo from Battlestar Galactica), what would it be? Bipo, bipo ( me )

    4. Are you buying anything online today for Cyber Monday? Oh no I am going for a big haul on Wednesday ! I need those 6 quads from Kiko ( 12,90 € each ) and the palette as well, their eyeshadows are so great I can’t miss that !

    6. Have you started decorating your house for the holidays yet? Not yet it’s really to early to start and here it’s mild and rainy ( 14 celsius which is astonishingly warm, normally it’s 9 but I think the weather is changing somehow )

    8. Did you Skype anyone during Thanksgiving? I don’t have any Skype account !

    2. What’s your stance on wearing workout clothes in public when you’re not working out? I don’t care either way. I think only wearing yoga pants when you’re not working out can look sloppy if you do it all the time, but once in a while? NBD.

    Surprisingly, I am not in a shopping mood!

    Currently obsessed with MAC Pink Plaid lipstick, MAC Pressed Blot Powder and Kiehls Lip Balm #1.

    6. Have you done any decorating around the house for the holidays yet?

    I dont normally.

    7. Do you like it when it snows?

    Yes because it is very rare that it happens here!

    8. Did you Skype anyone over Thanksgiving?

    Nope.

    9. Any plans to go ice skating over the holidays?

    I am scared but I might give it a shot? :D

    10. Weekly goals:

    To not let my co worker and his lack of time management and planning get to me.

  9. Christine says:

    Can I just say I am jealous of your lack of snow? We haven’t gotten any yet, but I am dreading it.

    1. Mood: Very tired, but pretty good otherwise.

    2. What’s your stance on wearing workout clothes in public when you’re not working out? It’s okay sometimes. Like walking to/from gym. Or walking to the corner market because I forgot sundried tomatoes. My butt looks good in yoga pants, so I’ll show it off. But sports bras are never worn outside the gym. EVER. They are torture.

    3. If you were a pilot and got to have a call sign (like Helo, Starbuck, Boomer or Apollo from Battlestar Galactica), what would it be? Cupcake! (and Ilsa (cat) would be McCatpants).

    4. Are you buying anything online today for Cyber Monday? I wish. pay day is Friday. My car insurance was taken out of my bank account today…does that count?

    5. Three things in your makeup bag that you’re loving now? My Tarte blush in Blissful, Sonia Kashuk mascara, and my Neutrogena concealer.

    6. Have you started decorating your house for the holidays yet? Nope. My apartment may never get decorated, but my bff and I are attacking my mom’s house with Christmas cheer sometime next week.

    7. Are you excited for the snowy season? NO. I hate snow. :( I’m already imagining trudging through snow in the dark on my way home…and cringing about it.

    8. Did you Skype anyone during Thanksgiving? Nope.

    9. Any plans to go ice skating over the holidays? I wish. I am “forbidden” (by doctors, Mom, BF) to ice skate or ski because if/when I fall, I can really eff up my back again. All the fun winter things…I can’t do (maybe this is where my bitterness for snow comes from?). I don’t zip around a top speeds, but like you, I also can’t stop without running into people or walls…or landing on my butt.

    10. Weekly goals: Make Christmas lists for my mom and BF’s mom. Work on re-working my budget (ugh). Knit more than I have been.

    If you learn the secret to keeping your living room from falling into disarray…please share. I’m in desperate need of help!

    • Karen says:

      Hi Christine,

      It’s one of the perks of living in Nor Cal. Our weather’s generally pretty mild, although we do get a few months of rain by March/April the worst is over.

      So, my plan for the living room is to tackle it for 15 minutes every day for the next week. Whether or not it works remains to be seen. :)

    1. Mood: Meh. Took an extra day off to try to get over whatever mutation of the flu and strep I have. Hasn’t been too helpful :(

    2. Do you wear workout clothing when you’re aren’t working out?: Not really, no.

    3. If you were a pilot, what would be your call sign (like Starbuck, Boomer and Apollo from Battlestar Galactica)?: Not sure!

    6. Have you done any decorating around the house for the holidays yet?: I’ve put up a couple wreaths, but that’s about it.

    8. Did you Skype anyone over Thanksgiving?: Nope.

    9. Any plans to go ice skating over the holidays?: Noooo. I’m horrible at it.

    10. Weekly goals: Try to get an internship for next semester.

    Have a great week, everyone!

    • Karen says:

      Hi Melissa,

      Internships are great. I did quite a few in college and looking back I wish I did more.

      What type of internship are you looking into?

      • Melissa says:

        Hi Karen!
        My internships are actually speech-language pathology graduate practicums. I’m doing one now and only have one more semester left to complete my final one. We have to decided what type of population and disorders we want to work with, and attempt to find a place that’s willing to take on a student. It’s a stressful process!

        • Karen says:

          Sounds like a challenging but satisfying journey. :) Think of all the people you’ll be able to help along the way! Very cool. Are you close to figuring out what you want to specialize in?

  12. Chelsea says:

    You should be obsessed with bunnies, Quincy would be happy with that.

    1. Mood: Procrastinative, if that’s a word. Ready for the semester to be over! I should be doing homework right now…

    2. Do you wear workout clothing when you’re aren’t working out? I work out in pajamas at home most of the time :p And I spend too much time in my jammies.

    3. If you were a pilot, what would be your call sign (like Starbuck, Boomer and Apollo from Battlestar Galactica)? Big Red.

    4. Are you doing any shopping for Cyber Monday? Nope, but I am getting a HauteLook package today, and I have some ideeli returns to make… I also picked up le Volume de Chanel yesterday.

    5. What are three things you’re loving in your makeup bag now? Holika Holika Peach Girl BB Cream in Shade 1, L’Oreal Colour Riche Balm in Caring Coral, and Make Up Forever Aqua Brow in 15.

    6. Have you done any decorating around the house for the holidays yet? Nope, and I probably won’t to be honest. I might take some stuff into my office though.

    7. Do you like it when it snows? Not particularly, but it doesn’t bug me too much, having grown up in Northern Michigan (especially since I don’t tolerate extreme heat well)

    8. Did you Skype anyone over Thanksgiving? Nope!

    9. Any plans to go ice skating over the holidays? I’ve never been ice skating, actually. I’m quite the klutz (it’s genetic), so it’s probably a bad idea.

    10. Weekly goals: Try to actually do homework instead of spending all my time watching The Vampire Diaries… Also, get some grading done!

    • Karen says:

      Hi Chelsea,

      I kept seeing bunnies all over Anthropologie when I went last weekend and they’re just so darn cute. Once again I’m entertaining the thought of getting Tabs one…

      Tell Quincy hi for me. :D And good luck with the grading!

      • Chelsea says:

        Jiji loves having a bunny brother… Quincy tolerates the cat, haha. Since QB (short for Quincy Bunny) is a little breed, we got Jiji as a kitten so he’d be a bit scared of the bun. Quincy’s about 4 lbs, and he’s on the plus-size side for a dwarf/dutch mix.

        Ugh, grading is relatively easy, but I just don’t want to do it…

        • Karen says:

          Smart idea! Unfortunately, the only way I could get Tabs to fear a bun is if it was the size of a miniature horse, LOL! Le sigh…I’ve always wanted a multi-pet household but under Tabs’ dictatorship it’s just not gonna happen. I guess I’ll have to live through you. :)

          I vote that you bribe yourself with a treat to get all that grading done.

  13. Natasha says:

    1. Mood: Excellent! Mom’s visit went well and we have tons of turkey leftovers… nom, nom.

    2. What’s your stance on wearing workout clothes in public when you’re not working out?
    I tend not to wear form-fitting stuff in public, but have no problem with folks wearing work-out gear… pajamas in public, is another story… pajamas, really?!

    3. If you were a pilot and got to have a call sign (like Helo, Starbuck, Boomer or Apollo from Battlestar Galactica), what would it be?
    No clue.

    4. Are you buying anything online today for Cyber Monday?
    Wasn’t planning on it… already bought stuff from Sephora online on Friday…

    5. Three things in your makeup bag that you’re loving now?
    Skin79 Diamond BB Cream, ELF neutral palette, eyeshadow brushes from ELF that I got on discount for $0.75 each at Target!

    6. Have you started decorating your house for the holidays yet?
    We don’t decorate for X-Mas because we’re always at the in-laws and don’t get home until New YEar’s… which is why I am so zealous about Thanksgiving; it’s the only major holiday that’s at OUR house.

    7. Are you excited for the snowy season?
    Not really. I actually hope that we totally avoid snow this season… it really messes up travel plans…

    8. Did you Skype anyone during Thanksgiving?
    No. We used the old-fashioned cellphones to keep in touch.

    9. Any plans to go ice skating over the holidays?
    No. I grew up in Tennessee and never skated as a kid, and now I think I’m just too old and fat to try skating in a public area…it would not be a pretty sight…

    10. Weekly goals: Coordinate with catsitter for December. Finish November with daily blog posts for NaBloPoMo. Create holiday budget.

    • Karen says:

      Hi Natash,

      Sounds like you had an excellent Thanksgiving. Do you plan on making anything with your turkey leftovers (soup, pot pie, etc.)?

      BTW, I’m totally with you on wearing pajamas in public.

      • Natasha says:

        Tonight it’s turkey mole (premade sauce with added garlic, chocolate and peppers), and tomorrow I’ll do the whole soup thing and make a good crusty bread (perk of having a Tuesday off). Then I’ll freeze the rest so we have something ready to go after the holidays. We’re already finished with the gravy, potatoes, sweet taters, and green beans… just turkey and stuffing right now. Love the whole T-day feast!

    3. If you were a pilot, what would be your call sign (like Starbuck, Boomer and Apollo from Battlestar Galactica)?
    Queen Jen?

    Josie Maran Argan Lip Quench… OMG, moist lips like POW!

    7. Do you like it when it snows? YES YES YES! Hot cocoa, cuddling under a blanket, perfection!

    8. Did you Skype anyone over Thanksgiving? Nope.

    9. Any plans to go ice skating over the holidays? Maybe… I have knee surgery coming up so we’ll see how fast I recover!

    10. Weekly goals:
    EAT LESS to make up for Thanksgiving! BOO YA!

    • Karen says:

      Hi Jennifer,

      Good luck with your knee. When’s the surgery?

      • Natasha says:

        What kind of knee surgery? My sis-in-law just had a meniscus repair –in and out of the surgeon’s office with just a local — and after a few days of rest, she’s doing much better and should be back to running in a couple weeks. My Mom is having her knee totally replaced in two weeks… it’s just a “kneedy” season for our family! (bad pun)

        • Karen says:

          Haha, I love bad puns! Hope everyone recovers quickly!

          I half-joke that I’ll be needing some robot knees soon. I’ve been running since I was 16 and I know I can’t do it forever…

          • Natasha says:

            Actually, you might be able to… my father-in-law has been an avid runner since he was a teen and at 86 isn’t slowing down one bit. He had the meniscus clean-up a couple years ago and is on chemo for a type of multiple myeloma, but still keeps running…but the actual knee joints are just fine.

          • Karen says:

            Oh, that’s awesome! I hope to be 86 someday and shuffling slowly down the street…45-minute mile, here I come!

  16. Katherine G says:

    1. Mood:
    ~Tired, but happy. Had a great day at the range with my fiance and future brother-in-law. My skills are getting better each time I go!

    2. Do you wear workout clothing when you’re aren’t working out?
    ~Not workout clothing per say, but I’m a huge fan of sweats and a t-shirt. I will wear that out to run errands and I don’t really care what people think.

    3. If you were a pilot, what would be your call sign (like Starbuck, Boomer and Apollo from Battlestar Galactica)?
    ~LOL probably Poison Oakley or Calamity Jane.

    4. Are you doing any shopping for Cyber Monday?
    ~Nope, not really. Went to the range, relaxing now…my coworker got me into Pinterest, so I’ve been spending time on that. I may check out the Laura Mercier website since you have gotten me interested in the eyeliners and shadows by her!

    5. What are three things you’re loving in your makeup bag now?
    ~Maybelline Full N’ Soft mascara (really does what the name says..), Rimmel Lasting Finish Blush in Autumn Catwalk, and UD 24/7 liner in Bourbon.

    6. Have you done any decorating around the house for the holidays yet?
    ~Nope, planning on getting a real tree soon, though. It still feels too early to start decorating, I probably don’t get into it until mid-December.

    7. Do you like it when it snows?
    ~Love it. It doesn’t mean snow days at all in my type of job (I still have to go into work even if it’s a blizzard), but when I do get those days off, I love it. Shoveling snow is good cardio, snowboarding and tubing is a blast, and thawing out indoors with a cup of hot chocolate and warm soup is my favorite :).

    8. Did you Skype anyone over Thanksgiving?
    ~Nope, was at work (where my coworker got me hooked on Pinterest), and I don’t have Skype.

    9. Any plans to go ice skating over the holidays?
    ~Maybe. I used to skate some back when I was younger but I don’t like it much. I always seem to get hit by kids who are much better on the skates than I am, and I get more bruises and sore spots than I actually have fun…

    10. Weekly goals:
    ~Keep doing hard workouts and increase the intensity.
    ~Keep looking at MMA studios and get a class started as soon as possible.
    ~Make a trip to the yoga studio nearby to get instruction and ideas for workouts.
    ~Clean up around the house, start organizing some of my stuff.
    ~Stay positive and don’t worry!

    • Karen says:

      Hi Katherine,

      You go with your MMA classes! I’ve looked into them but have been way too terrified to try. I’ve got a thing about people getting up in my space… I should probably get over that, LOL.

      Anywho, Pinterest is amazing, isn’t it? I could easily spend all day on it. My fave things to pin are makeup (of course) and food.

    7. Do you like it when it snows? Only if I’m not outside or if I don’t have to go out. It’s pretty from the warm cozy comfort of my couch! Haha.
    8. Did you Skype anyone over Thanksgiving? No. I probably should call my parents at some point, haha.
    9. Any plans to go ice skating over the holidays? No, but I want to make it out to try snowboarding this winter!

    8. Did you Skype anyone over Thanksgiving? No, I’ve actually never Skyped.
    9. Any plans to go ice skating over the holidays? I’m sure. I haven’t been on skates at all this year, which is pretty unbelievable. I can’t hold out much longer. :)
