Makeup and Beauty Blog Monday Poll, Vol. 367

Published in: Just For Fun

makeup and beauty blog monday poll

You might be wondering, “So what in tarnation is this Monday Poll thing anyway!?”

Well, it isn’t exactly a poll. It’s more of a constantly evolving (devolving?), somewhat random list of questions I’ve been putting out to readers every Monday morning for the past seven years. (It’s like a kickstart for your brain.) I’ve always enjoyed reading your answers in the comments, and I hope you enjoy reading mine.

  1. What are three pieces of advice you would give to a younger woman?
    1. Definitely drink a ton of water, she said holding up her Bkr. When I don’t drink enough water, everything is a little more difficult. My skin gives me a hard time, my brain doesn’t work as quickly…

      See, it’s not firing right now because I haven’t had enough water.

    2. Choose the people around you carefully (that’s one of those things I learned the hard way). Positive people with a good outlook will lift you up, and every spirit needs lifting sometimes.
    3. You don’t have to do everything yourself (again, another lesson learned the hard way). For many, many years I felt like I was the only one in the proverbial boat, like everything was entirely up to me to figure out and do, but it’s OK to ask for help. It’s OK to need help (everyone does), and everything doesn’t have to be hard.
  2. Nail charms (dangly or otherwise) — yes or no?
    Oh, hell no. Tabs would go insane. He’d never leave my nails alone.

    Plus, I don’t keep my claws long enough to have cute little charms. They’d always be rattling all over the place, and even if I did keep my nails long enough, the charms would click and clack on my keyboard.

    I can’t even think about it… It would drive me nuts!

  3. Are you looking forward to anything this week?
    I’m looking forward to going out on another mid-week movie date. El Hub and I did that last week. We went to see a new horror movie called It Follows, and it was kind of nice (the date, not the movie; THE MOVIE WAS SCARY!).

    I think it was last Tuesday or Wednesday night. It was just us, and three other dudes on a bromance date, in the entire movie theater. It was cool.

  4. Ripped jeans or boyfriend jeans?
    Ripped jeans.
  5. What do your sunglasses look like?
    Mine are a beige pair of oversized cat eye sunglasses by Tory Burch.

    Got them last year on sale, and I love ’em, but I’m thinking about switching to a pair of super cute Kate Spade aviators that I tried on at Nordstrom last week.

    Yup, major life dilemmas…

  6. Last weird dream you had?
    It was this past weekend. I dreamed that El Hub and I broke up! — and then I married Prince.

    And he was so weird!

    It was really weird being married to Prince…and I was completely heartbroken. I just wanted to go back to El Hub.

    Dang, it was the weirdest dream…

1. What are three pieces of advice you would give to a younger woman?
2. Nail charms (dangly or otherwise) — yes or no?
3. Are you looking forward to anything this week?

5. What do your sunglasses look like?
6. Last weird dream you had?

I’ve been trying to think of a few words of wisdom this morning, but I have no wisdom at all, LOL!

OK, I might have something here… Here’s a tidbit that may or may not help you this week (probably not), but if you slice potatoes for a scalloped potato dish and plan on storing the slices in your refrigerator overnight, you gotta stick those freaking potato slices in a bowl of water, because they’ll turn brown if you don’t. This I learned last weekend when I made scalloped potatoes for Easter.

Happy Monday, my friend! I hope that your jeans make your butt look great and that you have a wonderful, stress-free week. πŸ™‚

Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,

Karen

    So. Strange.

    6. Last weird dream you had?
    I can’t remember dreaming for quite some time now. Must be the lack of sleep… Little Bean is constantly teething or sick. Or both.

  14. Agata says:

    Your words of wisdom are very practical! Lol, I will remember that!

    1. What are three pieces of advice you would give to a younger woman?
    Don’t start wearing makeup too early, enjoy the beautiful young skin you have. Don’t wish to grow up too soon, being an adult is tough! Don’t pretend to be someone else just to fit in, be yourself!

    2. Nail charms (dangly or otherwise) β€” yes or no?
    Definitely not, they would drive me insane!

    3. Are you looking forward to anything this week?
    I can’t think of anything right now.

  15. Rachel R. says:

    1. What are three pieces of advice you would give to a younger woman?
    1) Don’t keep users and hateful people in your life.
    2) Don’t try to please everyone: It’s impossible.
    3) Wear sunscreen. Lots and lots of sunscreen.

    2. Nail charms (dangly or otherwise) β€” yes or no?

    Yes, but dangly only for special occasions for me. They’d be too hard to manage when doing typing, housework, etc. But I do love bling of all kinds.

    3. Are you looking forward to anything this week?
    Not yet

    4. Ripped jeans or boyfriend jeans?
    Ripped jeans

    5. What do your sunglasses look like?

    My glasses have transitions lenses, so usually those. They have purple metal frames, and the temples are openwork vines with pearly green accents. My proper sunglasses are slightly oversized, slightly cateyed black frames with gold scrolls on the upper corners.

    6. Last weird dream you had?

    I was in a Harry Potter movie, only nothing interesting was going on.

  16. Lulle says:

    1. What are three pieces of advice you would give to a younger woman?
    – wherever you go, whatever you do and whoever you meet, don’t forget your core values. Those values make you who you are, and if you compromise to be accepted/be cool/hang out with the cool kids, you’re giving up who your really are. It’s NEVER worth it.
    – believe in yourself, you can do anything you want. Don’t let the labels that people put on you define you. Be who you want to be, do what feels right, but don’t forget to get out of your comfort zone from time to time to try new things.
    – I don’t care what society tries to have us believe, your 20s are not the best time of your life. They’re a time to learn and find your way, but trust me, you’ll feel better in your own skin as you grow older. So don’t be distressed if you’re not having as much fun as you think you should, or meeting all you life’s goals by the age of 29. There’s a lot of time, and the best thing you can do for now is experience more so you learn what makes you thrive. It may not be what you thought as a kid, but it may be a lot more exciting.

    2. Nail charms (dangly or otherwise) β€” yes or no? Nay! I really don’t like how it looks, and I don’t see how I could keep using my hands with bulky stuff coming out of my nails.

    3. Are you looking forward to anything this week? Not really. No plans, but maybe I’ll be able to schedule that floating session?

    4. Ripped jeans or boyfriend jeans? Boyfriend jeans. Relaxed through the hips and thighs plus high waist is good for my body shape.

    5. What do your sunglasses look like? I have several pairs, one kind of “classier”, the others bought at the drugstore when they have a BOGO event, lol! I lose/break sunglasses a lot, and I need a very covering, sturdy pair for running.

    6. Last weird dream you had? It was a nightmare and I don’t really want to talk about it, but it was super weird. People chasing me and torture chambers involved. I was freaking out when I woke up.

  17. Christine says:

    1. What are three pieces of advice you would give to a younger woman?
    Well, I’d consider myself a young woman, so I’ll aim my advice to the 15-25 year set:
    1) I’m pretty sure no one really knows what the heck they want to do with themselves. Don’t like your major? Change it. Don’t like your career field? It’s okay to go in a completely different direction. You’re young, you’ve got time.
    2) Spoil yourself every once in awhile. Get that too-few-and-far-between pedicure, or take that dance class. You’ll thank yourself later.
    3) But hey, pay those pesky bills before heading out to the bar.

    2. Nail charms (dangly or otherwise) β€” yes or no?
    GAH no. I’m lucky I keep my nails done for nearly a week. I’m terribly clumsy and hit my hands on everything and my nails break when they feel like it. Charms would maybe last a day (also, I think I’d get annoyed by them).

    3. Are you looking forward to anything this week?
    Friday!

    4. Ripped jeans or boyfriend jeans?
    Ripped…sometimes boyfriend jeans make me look dumpy.

    5. What do your sunglasses look like?
    I think they are Ray Ban-esque. I need new ones, but I might be getting contacts soon so I’m holding off on buying new Rx sunglasses.

    6. Last weird dream you had?
    Last night’s…I’ve had these awful knots in my shoulders lately and it finally made its way into my dreams.
    I was at some flea market and my mom showed up, gave me a hug, and I winced because it hurt. So she kept poking my shoulder blades to find the knot, then said the only way to fix it was to slap it really, really hard. I turned away so she could and she counted down, then started laughing because I believed her.
    …I mean, really? To be fair, that IS my mom’s sense of humor, but what a weird thing to dream about.

  18. Judy H says:

    1. What are three pieces of advice you would give to a younger woman?

    1) wash your face even if you don’t feel like it
    2) moisturizing is important (inside and out) don’t think that you can skip it (or sunscreen)
    3) be kind to everyone around you, even if they’re not. you don’t know who’s watching….or what kind of day that person is having

    2. Nail charms (dangly or otherwise) β€” yes or no?

    ha. no. I have a hard enough time keeping polish on my hands, I can’t even imagine how long those would last.

    3. Are you looking forward to anything this week?

    (maybe) getting my house in order. I just moved from VA to WA with like three weeks notice. (the life of a Navy wife)
    4. Ripped jeans or boyfriend jeans?

    Ripped. I don’t need to look shorter than I am compared to my husband lol

    5. What do your sunglasses look like?

    I have super old Chanel sunglasses with adorable little bows on the sides. My mom bought them for me for a birthday and I have yet to get new ones.

    6. Last weird dream you had?

    Last nights was AWFUL. I dreamed about roaches all over my house. (this is the last time Husband convinces me to watch Dirty Jobs EVER again)

  19. Trude says:

    1. What are three pieces of advice you would give to a younger woman?
    Communication is everything (which includes signaling when driving); don’t get too caught up in gender differences – we’re all people, we all deserve to be treated equally (this applies to demanding to be treated like a princess – if you do, be prepared to treat your man like a prince); family is everything – the one you’re born to or the one you create.

    2. Nail charms (dangly or otherwise) β€” yes or no?
    Could never understand how anybody can handle them!

    3. Are you looking forward to anything this week?
    We’re hosting a bourbon tasting party on Saturday – everybody brings a bottle, I provide a bunch of food and we possibly all wind up playing Cards Against Humanity. πŸ™‚

    4. Ripped jeans or boyfriend jeans?
    Ripped! My hips and thighs don’t lend themselves to boyfriend.

    5. What do your sunglasses look like?
    My prescription ones are from Warby Parker, they’re the perfect classic Ray Ban-ish shape in tortoiseshell.

    6. Last weird dream you had?
    I have them almost every night, so I can’t remember a particular one offhand.

    1. What are three pieces of advice you would give to a younger woman?

    It might seem boring, but you will love yourself if you do financial planning. Pay off credit card purchases every month. If you can’t afford it, don’t buy it. If that bothers you, get a new job. No debt, ever, except possibly school (but even better if you can pay your way). There is always a way to be stylish on a budget!

    Stay sweet. Don’t be naive, but cherish your inner innocence. If you’re in a situation that makes you even slightly uncomfortable inside, just leave. Reflect on why, and find a new path.

    Don’t get tied up in knots because things are working out immediately in the way you thought they should. There’s always a way forward, and very often it’s unexpected and unplanned.

    2. Nail charms (dangly or otherwise) β€” yes or no?

    No, but I could see doing it in my 20s! At least once, just for the fun of it. I might want to overdo it and make it into a performance piece – like multiple charms on every nail.

    3. Are you looking forward to anything this week?

    Dinner with my family in an hour!

    4. Ripped jeans or boyfriend jeans?

    Neither. I find jeans tight! Can’t remember last time I wore them.

    5. What do your sunglasses look like?

    Old and falling apart! New Rx sunnies are on the list for this spring. Can’t happen soon enough!

    6. Last weird dream you had?

    I’ve had a few, but not recently that I remember! Now that you’ve asked, maybe I’ll have one tonight. πŸ™‚

    I’m so impressed with the great questions you come up with every week, Karen. I think you have a gift for it!

  21. Kwmechelle says:

    Happy Monday everyone! I had a stressful workday and got a not so nice surprise about something I had hopes for, so not the greatest Monday…but you live, you learn, and you move on with a positive attitude!

    1. What are three pieces of advice you would give to a younger woman?
    1) Your work ethic will speak for itself. If you are a hard worker, it WILL get noticed, and it WILL matter when you need it to.

    2) Don’t worry about “having it all” at a certain time period in your life. At 27, I am not where I want to be just yet career wise, and I’ve met many bumps in the road…but as a good friend just told me, the bumps in the road will make sense at the finish line of where you are meant to be. And if the finish line takes a while, enjoy the ride!

    3) Prepare for things and be as organized as you can. That said, you can still make mistakes (my Type A self has missed things before), but learn from them and grow gracefully. Sometimes it takes time to grow gracefully. It’s hard to stay positive when life throws curveballs, but that part gets a little easier with experience and age.

    2. Nail charms (dangly or otherwise) β€” yes or no?
    ~Not a fan – could get caught on so many things!

    3. Are you looking forward to anything this week?
    ~Much needed time off with the hubby.

    4. Ripped jeans or boyfriend jeans?
    ~I’m a fan of ripped – they look so rocker badass.

    5. What do your sunglasses look like?
    ~Currently sporting either bright pink framed aviators, or silver-framed aviators with iridescent blue/purple lenses.

    6. Last weird dream you had?
    ~Hmmm, haven’t had any dreams lately….

    -Sunscreen! Sunscreeeeeeeen!
    -figure out some ways to de-stress that don’t involve food or retail therapy (says the woman who just uh, bought two bkr bottles because I couldn’t decide on a color. Do as I say, not as I do)
    -find your signature _____ (lipstick, nail polish color, perfume, etc)

    2. Nail charms (dangly or otherwise) β€” yes or no? Ew. I didn’t know that was really a thing, but no. Uncomfortable and unsanitary.

    3. Are you looking forward to anything this week? I’m giving a talk on Saturday! I’m anxious/ sorta excited.

    4. Ripped jeans or boyfriend jeans? Boyfriend jeans.

    5. What do your sunglasses look like? Black cat eye frames, the only kind I think I can pull off. All other sunglasses look weird on me.

    6. Last weird dream you had? Hmm. I have ’em allllll the time, but I can’t think of any at the moment. Usually they’re work-related, blech.

    1.
    (1)Put your well being and health first! The right tools for that might be: Mindfulness against stress and overwhelming feelings, exercise for strength and confidence.
    (2) Don’t worry so much! The future: You’ll be fine and when you look back you’d probably not change a thing. What other people think: Who cares! I’ts you life, live it!
    (3)Take care of your skin! Use SPF and never wash your face with a foaming cleanser! It will damage your skin and make it dehydrated.

    2. No, I use ny nails to much to make that work.

    3. Game of thrones season 5!!! πŸ˜‰

    4. Both! separate and together (ripped boyfriend jeans).

    5. I’ve been rocking a pair of Ray Ban Clubmaster for the last 6 years. Bought them when they were really hip and still love them!

    6. Hahaha, I dreamt about my fake tan going all sorts of wrong! (It was the first time I tried an over night tan, and I guess I was nervous about the result)

  27. This – “Choose the people around you carefully (that’s one of those things I learned the hard way)” is SO true! I guess most of us learned that the hard way…
