Makeup and Beauty Blog Monday Poll, Vol. 255

Published in: Just For Fun

The Makeup and Beauty Blog Poll for Monday January 21, 2013

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. How do you feel right now?
    Optimistic. Lots to do today (secret bloggy stuff…).
  2. A color or colors you feel you wear well?
    Jewel tones. Rich purples, emerald greens and sapphire blues. :)
  3. One of your favorite TV shows from the ’80s/’90s?
    My So Called Life. I dreamt of Jordan Catalano writing a song for me…
  4. Have you ever given yourself a haircut?
    I used to cut my bangs in high school (and they looked terrible, big surprise, LOL!)
  5. Strawberry, vanilla or chocolate milkshakes?
    Vanilla. Chocolate if I’m desperate, but never, ever strawberry.
  6. What hits the spot?
    Sleeping in on the weekends. A husky tabby on my lap while I’m writing. Stretchy pants after a long day at work.
  7. A job you think you’d be pretty good at?
    Veterinarian, or maybe a makeup artist.
  8. A single strand of pearls: yes or no?
    Yes, but they have to be smallish white or pink pearls.
  9. When was the last time you wore a tiara (if you’ve ever worn a tiara)?
    My 30th birthday party that my parents threw for me at a Filipino drag queen karaoke bar.
  10. Weekly goals?
    Exercise every day this week. Find a new book to read (any recommendations?). Get to bed by 9:30 every night (yeah, right!). Test a bunch of new spring makeup (whee!). Be a good cat mommy to Tabs. :)

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

Happy holiday, friend! Today is Marin Luther King, Jr. Day here in the States. Hope you have the day off to celebrate, or just plain relax. Tabs has me working, of course.



I’m taking lots of pictures of some of his favorite new spring products. Tabs never takes a day off from fabulousness (his words), which translates to his assistant never getting any days off at all. Ha.

I’m also working on a top secret blog project to be announced later this week… Can’t share any details with you yet, but I can say this much: I was not meant to be a blonde. :)

Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,

Karen

  15. Katherine G says:

    1. How do you feel right now?
    ~Optimistic also. Have my 2nd jiu jitsu class tonight and I’m excited to go and apply what I learned last week. Hoping to make more classes this week and get the Muay Thai kickboxing started.

    2. A color or colors you feel you wear well?
    ~I look good in brights, or neutrals like heather gray. One of my suits is a heather gray and I always get lots of compliments on it.

    3. One of your favorite TV shows from the ’80s/’90s?
    ~21 Jump Street and Full House.

    4. Have you ever given yourself a haircut?
    ~I also did the bangs thing, but in middle school. I did a tiny, tiny section of short little fringe (the section was literally a few centimeters wide), and then I thought it looked bad so I actually plucked the hairs out. There is still a spot on my hairline today that won’t grow properly because I plucked those hairs.

    5. Strawberry, vanilla or chocolate milkshakes?
    ~I always loved strawberry!

    6. What hits the spot?
    ~Lately I’ve loved a good taco or fajita or this Thai peanut stir fry with rice noodles that we love.

    7. A job you think you’d be pretty good at?
    ~What I’m in now and what I’m applying for (with training). I could do anything I set my mind to but it takes a lot of hard work – I don’t do things naturally well until I’m comfortable in the work setting with my skills. I work very hard though and I do whatever training it takes to be good at something naturally (or with practice).

    8. A single strand of pearls: yes or no?
    ~I think it’s classy, so yes.

    9. Last time you wore a tiara?
    ~Not since I was a kid playing dress-up. I’m not really a total girly girl so I probably wouldn’t wear one ever.

    10. What are your weekly goals?
    ~Attend as many jiu jitsu and Muay Thai kickboxing classes as I can.
    ~Fill out paperwork for one department.
    ~Run every day, and work on more CrossFit style workouts.
    ~Do push-ups every morning and night, and during the day when there’s free time. Pull-ups too. Getting back into the habit of those is making me a lot stronger.
    ~Do some form of yoga every day, whether it’s 15 minutes or for an hour.
    ~Stay positive and work on little things to make me happy every day.
