Makeup and Beauty Blog Monday Poll, Vol. 257

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. How do you feel today?
    When I worked at my old law gig, there were Monday mornings when I’d walk into my cube, and the first thing I wanted to do was roll myself into a cocoon under my desk behind a pile of boxes and stay there all day. Truth be told, I feel that way this morning, but I’m working through it. And talking to you always makes me feel better. :)
  2. What was the highlight of your weekend?
    Seeing my friend Cindy on Friday night. We went to dinner and watched Warm Bodies together.

    About the movie, thumbs up! Who’d a thunk it? A zombie romance… It’s a little campy, of course, but great screenplay. They cut out parts of the book that didn’t need to be in the movie.

  3. What’s the most adventurous thing you’ve ever done?
    Flying out to Milan by myself for Fashion Week was probably the most adventurous I’ve been in years.

    Which reminds me — I need a new adventure!

  4. Favorite new makeup/beauty product this winter and why?
    I’m lovin’ the new Dim Light Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powder. I swear it takes 10 years off me — POOF! — like that.
  5. If you were a car, what kind would you be?
    A souped up, light blue Mini Cooper. Small, spunky, stylish.
  6. If you could be any character from fiction, whom would you be?
    Harriet the spy. And now, would someone please fix me a tomato sandwich? And if you need me, I’ll be hiding in the dumbwaiter. :)
  7. In one sentence, how would you describe your outlook on makeup?
    Classic with a twist.
  8. What’s one piece of clothing, or an accessory, you wish you could add to your wardrobe?
    UGH! PANTS. I desperately need pants. All of the non-stretchy pairs I have keep falling off my butt. And I’m over it.
  9. What are you wearing on your face, lips, eyes and nails today?
    Nothing yet, but I’ve got Guerlain, MAC and Dior spring products on my mind (and waiting on my desk to test).
  10. What are your weekly goals?
    To get either some wall shelves for my office or some gigantic cabinetry, to have fun writing, and to treat myself kindly. NO negative or critical self talk. That annoying voice needs to pipe down.

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

    1. How do you feel today? Tired. Worn out. Determined not to let my kids’ crazy behavior ruin my week.

    2. What was the highlight of your weekend? Yesterday we went to a state park and checked out some historical sites. It was fun to see my kids enjoying the beautiful weather. There were some rather memorable quotes from my 3 1/2 year old daughter like, “Hey, aminals! Come eat me!” and “This is the dessert where I was born and my great-grandma came to see me.” We do NOT live in the dessert, we were NOT in a dessert, and her great-grandma has never come to visit her. Love that imagination!

    3. What’s the most adventurous thing you’ve ever done? I left Wisconsin to move to Florida, met my (now) husband, and got married all in less than a year.

    4. Favorite new makeup/beauty product this winter and why? Phew, this is tough. Probably NARS And God Created Woman. But in about 5 minutes I’ll change my mind and tell you it’s NARS Light Reflecting Setting Powder.

    5. If you were a car, what kind would you be? Probably a 2005 Scion Xb. So practical, so cute, and analysts expect it to be a popularly restored classic in a few decades. Hopefully, I won’t need the restoration ;)

    6. If you could be any character from fiction, whom would you be?

    7. In one sentence, how would you describe your outlook on makeup? It’s an easy way to express myself and whatever mood I’m in for the day.

    9. What are you wearing on your face, lips, eyes and nails today? Too Faced shadows and liner (Neutral worked into a daytime navy cat eye), an Indian Summer blush, and a spiced gloss. My nails are turquoise and chipped, about to be removed.

    Le List

    1. How do you feel today?
    ~Tired but like I got enough rest because I finally got to sleep in today. Went for a run this morning, gonna do jiu jitsu this evening. Had to miss last week because of the crazy work schedule so hoping tonight goes fairly well.

    2. What was the highlight of your weekend?
    ~Making it through a very stressful week and getting through 2 steps for a department, and getting to talk with some of the recruiting people.

    3. What’s the most adventurous thing you’ve ever done?
    ~Probably go on my cruise, considering before I went I was afraid of flying and had a worry that my luggage would get lost. I like to try new things so it’s hard to pick one thing – I would say this and run my first marathon 4 years ago. This year is going to be the year for my second one.

    4. Favorite new makeup/beauty product this winter and why?
    ~I like Garnier’s new BB cream for oily/combo skin because it cuts down on oil production and helps mattify my skin but also moisturizes. Garnier’s BB cream was listed as the most moisturizing one in Allure magazine, and it works well. The regular one worked just fine but I work on keeping my skin as zit-free as possible and that means using oil-free stuff whenever possible.

    5. If you were a car, what kind would you be?
    ~Probably a big Dodge Ram 2500 or 3500 with a Cummins diesel, a Ford F-350 King Ranch truck, or if Chrysler came out with a version of the Hemi Cuda like I’ve seen at auto shows. 1971 Cuda with a 426 supercharged hemi is my favorite muscle car of all-time.

    6. If you could be any character from fiction, whom would you be?
    ~Anita Blake, Vampire Hunter; Catherine Chandler from the show Beauty and the Beast (Kristin Kreuk plays her, I love Kristin); or Detective Calleigh Duquesne from CSI Miami.

    7. In one sentence, how would you describe your outlook on makeup?
    ~Classic (and professional/neutral when needed) with the ability to make wild eye looks accessible and fun.

    8. What’s one piece of clothing, or an accessory, you wish you could add to your wardrobe?
    ~I can never have enough sports bras or exercise shirts. Especially now that I’m amping up my workouts to twice a day again with martial arts.

    9. What are you wearing on your face, lips, eyes and nails today?
    ~Currently nothing because I went for a mile run this morning and I will be going to jiu jitsu tonight.

    10. What are your weekly goals?
    ~Make martial arts classes as much as I can – the more I go the better I will get.
    ~Not stress over a test I have tomorrow.
    ~Enjoy some time off, especially after last week, work on organizing the house and getting household chores done.
    ~Stay positive and be happy.

    10. What are your weekly goals? Exercise every other day (I’m in so much pain from starting Saturday, but I strive to exercise more this year); get reading done; tie up some loose ends on some work projects.

    And to answer your question from last week, Karen — my brother and I are also 6 years apart!

    I MARVEL at your creativity & the effort you must put into keeping things fresh & witty. I look nothing like you & some of the looks you post wouldn’t flatter me. But they INSPIRE me! I love seeing the looks you choose & you introduce me to products I might never even consider because I think of them as being really high end & most SA’s are intimidating to me.

    I enjoy the spirit that you breathe into the blog and I love that you aren’t afraid to be silly. If I had a blog, I’d want it to be like yours.

    Some bloggers I read are just lovely, but pics are posted of FOTD or EOTD are the exact same angle with the same smile each time & it makes me think of Posh Beckham & how she never smiles in public yet how utterly adorable I thought she was when I saw a rare pic of her laughing & how endearing I found it.

    (I’m not picking on any other bloggers at all. I never really though of it too much until recently when the contrast between your pics & other started to really stand out to me each day.)
    But like Posh, I’d far rather see your inner light come thru than see a “Pro” or “Model with a Capital M” type pic. When you shine, you make me think maybe I can too!

    People can suck sometimes & its easy to hear their echo in our inner voice. I just hope you realize how much you have accomplished & inspired others. Give your self a break & a hug.
    (and say hi to Tabs for me! I too am a human minion to a saucy flame point Himalayan)
