The Makeup and Beauty Blog Monday Poll for June 24, 2013

Meow, Monday! The Makeup and Beauty Blog Monday Poll for June 24, 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. Do you have to dress up for work (like wear a suit)?
    Nope. The dress code here at the home office of Tabs the Cat Industries, LLC, where I work as a part-time beauty blogger and full-time professional pet assistant to world-famous plus-size kitty supermodel Tabs the Cat, is business casual. ;) In fact, I’m even allowed to wear stretchy pants.
  2. Do you ever rub elbows with royalty?
    Uh, no. But I do know some royal pains in the @ss, hahaha!
  3. Do you do water parks?
    I love playing around in the water, and water slides are a blast, but I’m going to vote “no” on this one. The few times I’ve visited water parks, I’ve gotten really sick afterward. Not sure why.
  4. Did you do any beauty shopping last weekend?
    Lil’ bit. I picked up some razor refills and shave cream at Target Friday night, and yesterday I hit up Space.NK in Larkspur to get a new bottle of Sunday Riley’s Good Genes Treatment, since I was running low.

    While I was there, though, the SA hooked me up with a bunch of sweet Sunday Riley and Tata Harper samples. I thought that was very nice.

  5. What was the first thing you saw when you opened your eyes this morning?
    My lavender duvet and the back of El Hub’s head.
  6. Curly or straight hair?
    Um, wavy?
  7. Are there any glosses in your makeup bag right now?
    Absolutely. MAC’s Big Baby Plushglass, which I could, and often do, wear every single day.
  8. When you’re not feeling well, do you like to be taken care of or left alone?

    I like to be babied… I’m like a certain tabby cat in that way. I need a lot of attention!
  9. Twinkies are making a comeback! Are you stoked?
    Eh, I guess. I haven’t had a Twinkie in years, so it’s not like I missed them when they left, but ya know, sure. You never know when you’ll get a craving.
  10. Do like your weather warm or cool?
    Warm, for sure! A lot of people love the Bay Area because it’s so temperate and usually cooler than the rest of the Central Valley. I like it, too, especially when “temperate” means sunny and warm. :)

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

  1. Yay, poll day :-)

    1. Do you have to dress up for work? I am currently job hunting, and working from home, so nope.

    2. Do you ever rub elbows with royalty? No.

    3. Waterparks: yes or no? Nah. I don’t like to swim.

    4. Did you do any beauty shopping last weekend? Nope, I’ve been a good girl! I did get mattifying powder from the drugstore though, but I don’t think that counts as actual beauty shopping. I’m flexible with the rules ;-)

    5. What was the first thing you saw when you opened up your eyes this morning? My boyfriend’s is-it-morning-already face. Priceless.

    6. Curly or straight hair? I have naturally straight hair, but I like to make it curly!

    7. Are there any glosses in your makeup bag right now? I’m in a lipstick phase right now, so no, not really. Or at least none that I frequently use.

    8. When you’re not feeling well, do you like to be taken care of or left alone? Left alone. Or I will bite your head off. ;-)

    9. Twinkies are making a comeback! Are you stoked? I’m not sure what twinkies are… Is that bad?

    10. Warm or cool weather? Warm! I am so glad summer is finally here!

    1. Do you have to dress up for work?
    ~I have to wear scrubs (which are essentially like PJ’s, especially after a few times through the wash), and in my future job I will have a uniform.

    2. Do you ever rub elbows with royalty?
    ~Not really. In my volunteer job, I work with a lot of upper level supervisors/ranks, so I guess they could count as royalty as some of them are in the public eye of sorts.

    3. Waterparks: yes or no?
    ~Love them, but don’t love how they get crowded. I’ve also gotten sick from a few, but I’d still do them regardless.

    4. Did you do any beauty shopping last weekend?
    ~I did some last week, bought the Cover Girl Flamed Out mascara (it’s a good one), Olay eye cream/lash serum combo, and razor blades for my Olay/Venus 5 blade razor.

    5. What was the first thing you saw when you opened up your eyes this morning?
    ~The sheets, my phone. Hubby had woken up early and was downstairs.

    6. Curly or straight hair?
    ~My hair has been described by stylists as straight/wavy with body. I like it in its natural wavy state when it behaves and random layers aren’t sticking out, but otherwise I like it pin straight. I don’t straighten it a lot though because I don’t want to get any damage.

    7. Are there any glosses in your makeup bag right now?
    ~I think I have L’Oreal’s Le Gloss in this mystic purple shade. It was a limited edition shade for the artist collection or something. It’s one of my running faves. Gives my lips a subtle shimmery iridescent purple finish.

    8. When you’re not feeling well, do you like to be taken care of or left alone?
    ~Both, I love to sleep when I am sick or under the weather, but I don’t like being totally left alone. I like having my hubby there to take care of me when I am sick.

    9. Twinkies are making a comeback! Are you stoked?
    ~I could live with or without them, I actually don’t eat a lot of dessert or candy.

    10. Warm or cool weather?
    ~Warm weather when I am at the pool or out and about so I don’t have to carry jackets and sweatshirts around, but I love cool weather (60 degrees and below) for running.

      Hi Katherine,

      Ooh, I’ve been eyeing that new Covergirl mascara! What color did you get?

      I’ve been stuck on two drugstore mascaras lately, Covergirl Clump Crushes and Maybelline Full ‘N’ Soft Waterproof.

      • Katherine M says:

        I got the Very Black shade (my typical, though I may try the brown/black or brown shade because a makeup artist I read about in a magazine said that wearing black on the top lashes and brown on the lower lashes is the most natural look if you can’t go totally bare lashed). I will also mention that while I already have pretty long lashes (to the point that when I put on mascara and I blink I get a mascara imprint on my browbone), the Olay eye cream/serum combo has done wonders for thickening and lengthening my lashes. Highly recommend it and it is also a great primer for mascara. I am also a contact lense wearer and can be picky about mascara these days since I have had mascara flake off and get on my contact. This mascara is a good buy and doesn’t flake.

  3. Megan says:

    1. Do you have to dress up for work? Business casual at most.
    2. Do you ever rub elbows with royalty? Nope.
    3. Waterparks: yes or no? Yes.

    6. Curly or straight hair? I have curly.

    10. Warm or cool weather? Cool.

  4. Lorraine says:

    1. Do you have to dress up for work? Nope lucky me.

    2. Do you ever rub elbows with royalty? depends on what you consider Royalty. Artists, to me, are royalty. So, yes.

    3. Waterparks: yes or no? Swimsuits and screaming? no, thank you.

    4. Did you do any beauty shopping last weekend? Only window shopping and internet stalking. Looking for a good bday gift for my sister. Thinking of YSL Jade Imperial, Chanel Azure or Clarins Splendors palette. She has gorgeous olive toned brown skin, green eyes and jet hair. Suggestions?

    5. What was the first thing you saw when you opened up your eyes this morning? Too sleepy to remember. Prolly my daughter’s stuffed monkey

    6. Curly or straight hair? Wish I had…straight hair

    7. Are there any glosses in your makeup bag right now? Revlon Super Lustrous Pearl Plum. I am bummed they revamped these Chanel-esque glosses. I liked the old compact packaging!

    8. When you’re not feeling well, do you like to be taken care of or left alone? No choice, I am usually left alone. But I’d love to have someone take care of me. just never happens.

    9. Twinkies are making a comeback! Are you stoked? YES! My son wants a twinkie cake for his bday. Personally I am hoping for Dingdongs and snoballs to make a comeback.

    10. Warm or cool weather? Cool. Not cold.

  5. Rica says:

    1. Do you have to dress up for work?
    Not really. I tried to look more proper in the Winter… In the Summer, I just wing it.
    2. Do you ever rub elbows with royalty?
    What?
    3. Waterparks: yes or no?
    Yes!
    4. Did you do any beauty shopping last weekend?
    No… I guess that’s a good thing! Need to tame my collection and my shopaholic personality
    5. What was the first thing you saw when you opened up your eyes this morning?
    I forgot… Probably the ceiling!?
    6. Curly or straight hair?
    Straight for every day, curly for special occasion
    7. Are there any glosses in your makeup bag right now?
    Nope… I don’t have my makeup bag with me today haha
    8. When you’re not feeling well, do you like to be taken care of or left alone?
    I like both. So I like when someone is there when I ask for it and be left alone if I’m looking to rest… Of course it doesn’t always work that way
    9. Twinkies are making a comeback! Are you stoked?
    Oh gosh… Fat and calories packed with preservatives… Doesn’t sound very appealing, does it?
    10. Warm or cool weather?
    Hmmm if we’re talking about 20 degree Celsius (yes I’m from Canada)… Then I’m good whichever way you classify this :)

    x Rica

  6. Ru says:

    1. Do you have to dress up for work?
    Not suits anymore thank goodness it’s too humid in DC for suits! But business casual, and our office lets us wear jeans on Fri. I feel comfortable in business casual, allows me to be creative with my clothes but also conservative mostly which is how I dress anyways.

    2. Do you ever rub elbows with royalty?
    Haha no but I have rubbed elbows with people high up in the govt if that’s considered our royalty. I’ve meet a few secretaries from the prez’s cabinet, a few congressmen, saw the Mayor of DC, and some other high ups that don’t get press but run our country!

    3. Waterparks: yes or no?
    Yes, but something about them grosses me out a bit. The constantly wet bathing suit and some of the surfaces just don’t seem clean. I don’t know.

    4. Did you do any beauty shopping last weekend?
    Negative. I’m overdue to buy some stuff including a cleansing oil which I’m afraid is going to break me out but I feel like I need it!

    5. What was the first thing you saw when you opened up your eyes this morning?
    Sun shining in through the bedroom window

    6. Curly or straight hair?
    Love curly hair- long loose big curls. But my hair is straight as a board

    7. Are there any glosses in your makeup bag right now?
    Nope! I cleared them up from my purse finally! I only have Korres Lip Butter in there now!

    8. When you’re not feeling well, do you like to be taken care of or left alone?
    I can take care of myself from many years of doing so, but it’s SO nice when someone else takes care of you.

    9. Twinkies are making a comeback! Are you stoked?
    nah, don’t really eat that stuff. I’m a HoHos girl lol

    10. Warm or cool weather?
    Used to be cool. I’ve always appreciated a little cool weather (boots!). I can now appreciate warm weather. But I don’t like hot or cold (no extremes please).

  7. sweeks1980 says:

    1. Do you have to dress up for work? I work for a college, so even though there doesn’t seem to be a mandated dress code, I usually opt to dress up. Part of this is because I have to tell students to look professional when they go to their field placements, and part of this is because I’m the youngest person in my department and need to look like a grown up :)

    2. Do you ever rub elbows with royalty? No (thank goodness)!

    3. Waterparks: yes or no? No

    4. Did you do any beauty shopping last weekend? I had to buy new brakes for my car this month, so I’m trying to curb my nonessential spending :(

    5. What was the first thing you saw when you opened up your eyes this morning? My ceiling fan.

    6. Curly or straight hair? Straight

    7. Are there any glosses in your makeup bag right now? I have a Lorac GlossStick as well as some glosses from free-gift-with-purchase events at Clinique and Benefit.

    8. When you’re not feeling well, do you like to be taken care of or left alone? I like to be left alone for the most part. That said, I love it when someone cooks/brings me food when I’m sick.

    9. Twinkies are making a comeback! Are you stoked? I’m decidedly “meh” on this.

    10. Warm or cool weather? Cool weather all the way!

  8. Ruchita says:

    1. Do you have to dress up for work?
    No, my workplace is very casual, but I tend to dress up a bit more than others. However, if I wore anything resembling a suit, people would think I was going for an interview!

    2. Do you ever rub elbows with royalty?
    The closest I got was seeing Buckingham Palace.

    3. Waterparks: yes or no?
    Yes. When I was younger, I loved the wave pool and water slides. It might be fun to take a day off work and go back.

    4. Did you do any beauty shopping last weekend?
    Nada.

    5. What was the first thing you saw when you opened up your eyes this morning?
    My phone b/c the alarm was going off. Then Nina came over to cuddle and purr in the crook of my arm. She’s such a sweetheart. :-)

    6. Curly or straight hair?
    Slightly wavy if I let it air dry. I mostly straighten it with a flat iron.

    7. Are there any glosses in your makeup bag right now?
    Yes, a couple from L’Oreal.

    8. When you’re not feeling well, do you like to be taken care of or left alone?
    Left alone. I just want to lay on the couch and nap.

    9. Twinkies are making a comeback! Are you stoked?
    Nah. I haven’t had a Twinkie in years. I’m kind of scared to look at the list of ingredients.

    10. Warm or cool weather?
    Warm. I was born in India during the summer, so I think it’s in my genes!

    Have a great day!

  9. Karen4 says:

    1. Do you have to dress up for work? Only when I have to leave the house. I work out of my home, so it’s actually not uncommon for me to be in my pj’s until late morning. I’m an early riser and usually start working around 6 a.m. after I’ve had my first cup of coffee.
    2. Do you ever rub elbows with royalty? I dined with an Italian duke earlier this month, so I guess that counts:0)
    3. Waterparks: yes or no? No
    4. Did you do any beauty shopping last weekend? Not this past weekend. I just stocked up for summer beauty a few weeks ago, so don’t really need anything.
    5. What was the first thing you saw when you opened up your eyes this morning? Darkness. I keep my room like a cave, and my blackout shades are awesome. The room is really dark, even if it’s light outside.
    6. Curly or straight hair? My hair tends to curl, especially in humidity.
    7. Are there any glosses in your makeup bag right now? Several–all by Buxom.
    8. When you’re not feeling well, do you like to be taken care of or left alone? I like to know that someone cares, but I like to be left alone for the most part.
    9. Twinkies are making a comeback! Are you stoked? Ick. No.
    10. Warm or cool weather? Warm weather–60′s and 70′s is my favorite.

  10. Megan says:

    Le List
    1. Do you have to dress up for work?
    It’s officially labled “business casual”, which was really confusing to me when I first started, haha.

    2. Do you ever rub elbows with royalty? Nope!

    3. Waterparks: yes or no? Yes! I love waterparks.Some of the slides scare me though, such as the Kamikaze one I went on that went almost straight down.

    4. Did you do any beauty shopping last weekend? Yeah, some new Burts Bees Sensitive Eye Cream (which has terrible packaging, by the way. I couldn’t get the product to come out, and then over half of the tube went everywhere! So frustrating! :[) Also,Revlon Pink Pop lip gloss, and Raspberry Pie lip butter.

    5. What was the first thing you saw when you opened up your eyes this morning? My Kindle, which was playing music to wake me up.

    6. Curly or straight hair? Curly AND wavy, in different parts of my hair.

    7. Are there any glosses in your makeup bag right now? I've stopped carrying a makeup bag around in my purse because I tend to throw too much in there and it starts weighing it down, but I hoard lip glosses/lipstick in the pocket of my purse. My favorite right now is Revlon's Super Lustrous Lip Gloss in the shade Pango Peach!

    8. When you’re not feeling well, do you like to be taken care of or left alone? I like both. I usually don't want to get anyone sick, but I like it when people check on me every once in a while :]

    9. Twinkies are making a comeback! Are you stoked? Yes, just because it seemed wrong that they wouldn’t be available anymore!

    10. Warm or cool weather? I LOVE fall and cooler weather, but then again, I live in the South, where there isn’t really a Spring, just cool and then “HOLY CRAP, IT’S SO HOT” :D

  12. camille says:

    1. Do you have to dress up for work?
    *sigh* no. but i’d like to. i bought business clothes a few years back, and i haven’t really had the chance to wear them. i have so many pretty pumps, but nowhere to wear them! hopefully i kick myself into gear and get moving with this resume make over.

    2. Do you ever rub elbows with royalty?
    like royalty royalty, or famous people? no, not really. hung out with some famous people this weekend. they’re family friends, and it was nice to see their home. really pretty. :) i get nervous around big deal people. nakakahiya.

    3. Waterparks: yes or no?

    4. Did you do any beauty shopping last weekend?
    no. i have to head to ulta, one of these days, to make an exchange. i’d love to splurge at the sephora at town square, because they carry bobbi brown in store! <3 soon…soon.

    5. What was the first thing you saw when you opened up your eyes this morning?
    The Man getting up for work. i'm still in bed when he's ready to head out the door, so he usually comes into our room, boots on (grrrr!) to give me a kiss bye.

    i have straight hair, but i'd love curly hair!

    8. When you’re not feeling well, do you like to be taken care of or left alone?

    9. Twinkies are making a comeback! Are you stoked?
    yes! well, i haven't had a twinkie in so long! when hostess dropped off, i craved a twinkie, but they were no longer in stores. so, of course, since they're not available i crave it more. LoL! i might have one, when they come back. they're so bad for you. :/

    10. Warm or cool weather?
    oh, in between? i miss the bay area. and, can you believe it, but i miss the valley! desert heat is so different than valley heat. :( i hope the weather is lovely this week, for you all. triple digits await me! hahah.

  13. Katie F says:

    1. Do you have to dress up for work?

    2. Do you ever rub elbows with royalty?
    Not that I’m aware of.

    3. Waterparks: yes or no?

    Nope.

    5. What was the first thing you saw when you opened up your eyes this morning?

  14. Amanda says:

    1. Do you have to dress up for work?
    Not during the week, but when I attend my events, I need to look presentable. Usually all black, nothing TOO fancy.

    2. Do you ever rub elbows with royalty?
    Living in LA you see a lot of celebs, but I can’t say I’m in anyone’s inner circle (yet!)

    3. Waterparks: yes or no?
    Yes!!!!

    4. Did you do any beauty shopping last weekend?

    My gluten allergy says no, but my heart says yes!

    3. Waterparks: yes or no? No, again.

    6. Curly or straight hair? After the blowdry straight, usually wavy or frizzy.
    7. Are there any glosses in your makeup bag right now? Yes Bobby Brown Brightening Lip Gloss in Pink Lilac, neutral but with a twist.
    8. When you’re not feeling well, do you like to be taken care of or left alone? Depends on who wants to take care of me.
    9. Twinkies are making a comeback! Are you stoked? ??? No

  16. Kim says:

    Happy Monday, my friend! We’ve officially put last week behind us and this week is looking grand! :)

    1. Do you have to dress up for work? No, thank goodness. Our offices and manufacturing facilities are all in one location so pretty much anything (not obscene) goes. When I have to dress for a client meeting, people nearly keel over from shock. :)
    2. Do you ever rub elbows with royalty? Do you mean aside from my weekly polo matches with Wills and Harry? HAHA!
    3. Waterparks: yes or no? Totally yes! Love them!! Though, I do understand what you’re saying about feeling sick. Something about the heavily chlorinated water, long hours in the sun and the tummy flipping of the rides can leave you feeling a little “off”.
    4. Did you do any beauty shopping last weekend? No, I actually didn’t do any shopping at all last weekend.
    5. What was the first thing you saw when you opened up your eyes this morning? The bright, horrible numbers of my screeching alarm clock. :)
    6. Curly or straight hair? Mostly curly, particularly in this humidity!
    7. Are there any glosses in your makeup bag right now? Yes, an Avon Apple Cinnamon (best freebie ever) and Ev Rev! So I guess I have a bag of MBB gloss in my purse!
    8. When you’re not feeling well, do you like to be taken care of or left alone? Pretty much left alone because I want to sleep.
    9. Twinkies are making a comeback! Are you stoked? Yeah, I’m with you. I don’t think I’ve had a Twinkie (or any snack cake) in, seriously, 25 years or so.
    10. Warm or cool weather? I’m going to go with 75 degrees and sunny with low humidity and a very light breeze. I think that would be considered warm. :)

  17. Tennyoceres says:

    1. Do you have to dress up for work?
    Usually I dress business casual. I try to restrict jeans to Fridays or when it’s laundry day.

    2. Do you ever rub elbows with royalty?
    Sometimes I wish I did.

    3. Waterparks: yes or no?
    No. I like the idea of a water park but I’m more of a swim at a normal pool kind of girl.

    4. Did you do any beauty shopping last weekend?
    I grabbed a stick of deodorant and a pack of Pacifica Perfume Coconut wipes. I’m holding back for the Sephora Ariel eyeshadow set and compact next month.

    5. What was the first thing you saw when you opened up your eyes this morning?
    My cell phone screen. My alarm is crazy annoying (but wakes me up)!

    6. Curly or straight hair?
    Curly. I got waves that sometimes curl if I sleep on them funny.

    7. Are there any glosses in your makeup bag right now?
    Inglot 543, Bath & Body Works Liplicious in Mango Tango, and Nyx Butter Gloss in Creme Brulee. My husband finds Mango Tango tasty.

    8. When you’re not feeling well, do you like to be taken care of or left alone?
    I like being taken care of. Being tucked in like a baby makes me feel loved =3

    9. Twinkies are making a comeback! Are you stoked?
    I’m not huge on Twinkies, but I know what I’m grabbing as my sugar fix during the Zombie Apocalypse.

    10. Warm or cool weather?
    Warm, please! Any excuse to jump into the pool or run to the beach for a day.

  18. NeenaJ says:

    1. Do you have to dress up for work? No, it’s business casual. But, we were recently informed that there “no such thing as Casual Fridays.” If the Dowager Countess had told me this news, I might be OK but, as it stands, I miss my jeans on Friday!

    2. Do you ever rub elbows with royalty? Nope. A few distant relations in the mob is all I’ve got.

    3. Waterparks: yes or no? E.coli with a side of sunburn? No thanks.

    4. Did you do any beauty shopping last weekend? Unfortunately, no. But, I’m hopeful for this weekend.

    5. What was the first thing you saw when you opened up your eyes this morning? Daylight seeping around my not-dark-enough curtains. Fortunately, this was followed by the sweet face of a sleepy three year old waking up in his own bed.

    6. Curly or straight hair? Wavy.

    7. Are there any glosses in your makeup bag right now? No. Too sticky for me. I hate the feeling of my hair getting cught in it – which happens within one minute of my applying any lip gloss.

    8. When you’re not feeling well, do you like to be taken care of or left alone? Leave me alooooone!

    9. Twinkies are making a comeback! Are you stoked? Totally! Would miss them deep fried at the State Fair.

    10. Warm or cool weather? Cool all the way.

  19. 1. Do you have to dress up for work? Not really super dressy, but business casual Mon-Thurs and jeans day on Fridays. But we can’t wear casual shoes with the jeans, which I think is kind of strange. What’s the point of “casual Fridays” if you still have to wear fancy shoes? I anxiously await Flip Flop Fridays, but I doubt they’re coming!
    2. Do you ever rub elbows with royalty? No, but I do love watching Downton Abbey, and they’re close to royalty, right?!
    3. Waterparks: yes or no? Eh, used to be bout it bout it, but not so much now that I’m in my 30′s and the idea of my top flying off at the end of a slide isn’t something I’d want anyone to endure!
    4. Did you do any beauty shopping last weekend? I did! I finally ordered a foundation dark enough to match my summer skin (Tarte Amazonian Clay 12-Hour Full Coverage Foundation SPF 15) and a Too Faced La Creme lippie in Honey Bear. Can’t wait for it to arrive!
    5. What was the first thing you saw when you opened up your eyes this morning? My fiance straight snoozin’. He was snoozin’ so hard last night I had to put in my ear plugs!
    6. Curly or straight hair? Mine is pretty straight.
    7. Are there any glosses in your makeup bag right now? No – all balms and lipsticks!
    8. When you’re not feeling well, do you like to be taken care of or left alone? I like to be taken care of as far as being offered Gatorade, Tylenol, and heating pads, but other than that, I’m great just resting in bed quietly.
    9. Twinkies are making a comeback! Are you stoked? I do love them but I try to only indulge once or twice a year.
    10. Warm or cool weather? Warm, but not ridiculously hot unless I’m at a beach! I do love cool weather too, though!

    Have a great week, Karen! :D

  20. Sheilla says:

    1. Do you have to dress up for work?
    Yes! I work at a school though so I don’t have to be super fancy or anything.
    2. Do you ever rub elbows with royalty?
    My life is unfortunately not that fabulous.
    3. Waterparks: yes or no?
    Yeah they can be fun. I can’t swim though -_-
    4. Did you do any beauty shopping last weekend?
    Yes, got a few goodies from Ulta and CVS.
    5. What was the first thing you saw when you opened up your eyes this morning?
    My wonderful boyfriend :3 (Super cheesy?)
    6. Curly or straight hair?
    I like both. I have wavy hair so I can only really achieve vague representations of both.
    7. Are there any glosses in your makeup bag right now?
    Yes. My favorite right now is Rimmel Stay Glossy in Fuchsia Fever, Revlon Super Lustrous Lip Gloss in Pink Whisper, and Soap & Glory Sexy Mother Pucker XL Extreme-Plump.
    8. When you’re not feeling well, do you like to be taken care of or left alone?
    I’m unpredictable so a little of both sometimes.
    9. Twinkies are making a comeback! Are you stoked?
    Not really. I have no idea why people were freaking out when they were getting discontinued.
    10. Warm or cool weather?
    Cool weather!

    1. Do you have to dress up for work?
    Nah. But sometimes I like to, just because.

    2. Do you ever rub elbows with royalty?
    Never.

    3. Waterparks: yes or no?
    Nope. Chlorine makes me sniffle and sneeze big time!

    4. Did you do any beauty shopping last weekend?
    None whatsoever. Weird, I know.

    5. What was the first thing you saw when you opened up your eyes this morning?
    The wall.

    I like a bit of help, but not 24h/day fussing.

    9. Twinkies are making a comeback! Are you stoked?
    Ugh.

    10. Warm or cool weather?
    Warm! I think I’d love it in California. Alas, I live in a so-called temperate zone, where weather goes from ridiculously-below-freezing in winter to scorching in summer.

  22. Phyrra says:

    1. Do you have to dress up for work?
    No :) Working from home means I can wear whatever I want.

    2. Do you ever rub elbows with royalty?
    No.

    3. Waterparks: yes or no?
    Yes! Love them.

    4. Did you do any beauty shopping last weekend?
    No. I stayed in.

    5. What was the first thing you saw when you opened up your eyes this morning?
    A poodle laying on her back with her feet up in the air.

    6. Curly or straight hair?
    Straight.

    7. Are there any glosses in your makeup bag right now?
    No.

    8. When you’re not feeling well, do you like to be taken care of or left alone?

  23. Alice Ann says:

    1. Do you have to dress up for work? No,it’s actually better if I don’t.
    2. Do you ever rub elbows with royalty? No. I used to work in a very creative field when I lived in NYC and met/have known people who are well known.
    3. Waterparks: yes or no? I’ve never been. I don’t love crowds,so it doesn’t sound very appealing.
    4. Did you do any beauty shopping last weekend? I picked up another Josie Maran cheek gelee and a Sephora lipstick. Oh, and a couple of Milani lipsticks,great colors but formula is a little disappointng.
    5. What was the first thing you saw when you opened up your eyes this morning? My dog’s face inches from mine, staring at me.
    6. Curly or straight hair? Curly.
    7. Are there any glosses in your makeup bag right now? A couple of mini Bite Beauty ones, a couple of Tom Ford ones, and a new one from Boots I picked up at Target recently. Clearly I need to thin the herd a little.
    8. When you’re not feeling well, do you like to be taken care of or left alone? It depends on the kind of not feeling well. If it’s a cold or flu, I love a bowl of soup or tea, and then be left alone. If it’s an anxiety/panic attack, it’s nice to have someone there.
    9. Twinkies are making a comeback! Are you stoked? God,no. They’re poison.
    10. Warm or cool weather? I like cold or cool weather for the most part, with a few warm or hot days interspersed. The Bay Area is great for that.

  24. Heidi says:

    1. Do you have to dress up for work?

    Since work currently consists of part-time working with kids and full time attending to the demands of a fussy cat, dressing up would be a very bad idea!

    2. Do you ever rub elbows with royalty?

    Well, Missy can be quite the princess — does that count?

    3. Waterparks: yes or no?

    Crowded, noisy, getting splashed with water? No thanks!

    4. Did you do any beauty shopping last weekend?

    Bought a vitamin C serum at Ross Dress for Less the other day and yesterday picked up some concealer and body spray at ULTA. It’s very dangerous having ULTA in the same shopping center as Trader Joe’s. I always end up just “popping in for a quick look” before heading over to do grocery shopping.

    5. What was the first thing you saw when you opened up your eyes this morning?

    a large black and white cat was in my face.

    6. Curly or straight hair?

    Mine is slightly wavy, and I’d love it to be a tad bit more wavy.

    7. Are there any glosses in your makeup bag right now?

    Too Faced summer glosses are all in there — Watermelon Ice, which I wore all weekend, Papaya Slushie, and Mocha Freeze.

    8. When you’re not feeling well, do you like to be taken care of or left alone?

    That depends. I like to be pampered, but I can’t handle someone around me if they’re really hyper/high energy.

    9. Twinkies are making a comeback! Are you stoked?

    Not sure I’ll be indulging in one anytime soon, but for nostalgia purposes, sure. Twinkies should exist in the world.

    10. Warm or cool weather?

    Warm, please!

  25. Kate & Zena says:

    1. Do you have to dress up for work?
    I don’t work, so nope. I wear lots of fit-and-flare dresses in summer though, so if that’s dressing up, yep.

    2. Do you ever rub elbows with royalty?
    I’ve met a few celebrities, but other than that, nope. I do know some royal pain in the rears, though!

    3. Waterparks: yes or no?
    YEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEES, especially those with waterslides. I LOVE waterslides. I can get drunk on waterslides.

    4. Did you do any beauty shopping last weekend?
    Nope, just fashion shopping!

    5. What was the first thing you saw when you opened up your eyes this morning?
    My pillow.

    6. Curly or straight hair?
    My hair is straight, but I love it when curls actually stay in my hair!

    7. Are there any glosses in your makeup bag right now?
    Um, I have a whole bag of glosses and three in my bag. <-not feeling guilty.

    8. When you’re not feeling well, do you like to be taken care of or left alone?
    Both. It's weird.

    9. Twinkies are making a comeback! Are you stoked?
    No, I loathe Twinkies, but I can't wait for Wonder Bread to come back! I've been crying over not having Wonder Bread. There's is nothing better than Wonder Bread. Okay, Mother's Bread is close, but I WANT MY WONDER BREAD BACK.

    10. Warm or cool weather?
    Warm weather, as long as it's dry warm weather. It's so humid right now! I hate humid hot weather!

  26. Steph says:

    1. Do you have to dress up for work?
    Being funemployed (unless you count sporadic blogging as my job) means I can wear what I want. Yay.

    2. Do you ever rub elbows with royalty?
    Hmm, no. Will & Kate visited here a couple years ago, but I was actually working then so I didn’t see them. My mom met the Queen when she was 8!

    3. Waterparks: yes or no?
    No. I can’t swim :x

    4. Did you do any beauty shopping last weekend?
    None!

    5. What was the first thing you saw when you opened up your eyes this morning?
    My husband.

    6. Curly or straight hair?
    It really depends on the person. On me, wavy or straight.

    7. Are there any glosses in your makeup bag right now?
    Benefit Dandelion and Youngblood Mighty Shiny Lip Gel in Confessed.

    8. When you’re not feeling well, do you like to be taken care of or left alone?
    Taken care of — especially by providing me with junk food. ;)

    9. Twinkies are making a comeback! Are you stoked?
    Nope. I don’t even think they sell them here (Canada). I think they used to because I can remember trying them, but I’m not a big fan.

    10. Warm or cool weather?
    Warm but not hot. We get a lot of humidity instead of nice, dry heat so summer is hit or miss temperature-wise.

  27. Suri says:

    1. Do you have to dress up for work? I don’t have to but I try to. I don’t have to wear a suit but I try to wear slacks or dress pants a few days a week. If I wear jeans I usually dress them up with cute shoes, shirts & accessories.
    2. Do you ever rub elbows with royalty? Nope.
    3. Waterparks: yes or no? Yes I like them.
    4. Did you do any beauty shopping last weekend? No. A no buy weekend.

    6. Curly or straight hair? Curly.
    7. Are there any glosses in your makeup bag right now? Like a million. But I am obsessed with L’oreal Color Riche in Nude. I wear it everyday.
    8. When you’re not feeling well, do you like to be taken care of or left alone? I’m such a baby I totally need to be taken care of.
    9. Twinkies are making a comeback! Are you stoked? Doesn’t bother me either way.
    10. Warm or cool weather? I love both. Just depends on my mood. I love warm without all the humidity and I love cool weather but not too cold.

  28. Stephanie Smith says:

    1. Do you have to dress up for work? I’m a stay at home Mom, so I wear what I wanna wear!

    3. Waterparks: yes or no? Yes! I have kids, it goes with the job!
    4. Did you do any beauty shopping last weekend? I was in the hospital all weekend with my 7 year old that had her appendix out.
    5. What was the first thing you saw when you opened up your eyes this morning? My daughter, saying she needed to go pee, and I had to help her get out of bed and haul all the IV stuff with her.
    6. Curly or straight hair? Wavy!
    7. Are there any glosses in your makeup bag right now? Yes, my favorite is Urban Decay Naked! I don’t wear a lot of gloss, my hair gets stuck in it, but I like this one.
    8. When you’re not feeling well, do you like to be taken care of or left alone? Left alone! I like it quiet and calm.
    9. Twinkies are making a comeback! Are you stoked? Not even a tiny bit. I find Twinkies to be God-awful!
    10. Warm or cool weather? Warm, Summer is my favorite!

  29. Jace says:

    1. Do you have to dress up for work?

    Well – I just graduated high school and my part time job as a TA just requires me to look somewhat decent, so nope!

    2. Do you ever rub elbows with royalty?

    My dad is a diplomat, so it’s mostly him, but occasionally I join in the fun.

    3. Waterparks: yes or no?

    I’m a water baby :)

    4. Did you do any beauty shopping last weekend?

    Wavy, usually.

    Taken care of :) A few days ago I had a 104 fever, actually, and my mum was the best.

    9. Twinkies are making a comeback! Are you stoked?

    I found out about Twinkies after the were discontinued (is that a word they use for food, too? ha) but my friend magically stocked up on some so I tried one – it was alright.

    10. Warm or cool weather?

    I love warm weather, but I also adore Winter. So it’s either gotta be freezing (snow!) or not. Cool is not cool.

    7. Are there any glosses in your makeup bag right now? nope but a Buxom lipstick

    10. Warm or cool weather? warm but not hot.

  31. Lizzy says:

    Fun!

    1. Do you have to dress up for work? Depends. I’m on maternity leave right now, which is definitely “comfy clothes” time LOL! But when I’m at work it’s mostly business casual unless I’m scheduled for court or some other similarly formal event.

    2. Do you ever rub elbows with royalty? In a manner of speaking–though she wouldnt say it herself (it was another person familiar with her geneology who pointed it out) my Loea Hula (hula master) is descended from the kings and queens of Old Hawaii, and three other members of our hula school are related to the Tongan royal family.

    3. Waterparks: I was all over this as a kid–it gets HOT here in Sac Town in the summer! But now that I have a house with a pool, no need ;)

    4. Did you do any beauty shopping last weekend? Yes, I picked up some fragrance samples and a trio of my favorite deodorants (Lavanila) online.
