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.
- Describe your perfect hair day.
Long and loose barely-there beach waves with a good amount of volume, especially around the roots, and very little frizz (and no grays showing). 😉 My bangs must also lie perfectly to the side without any weird bumps or stray fly-aways.
Ah, bangs… I love ’em, but sometimes they seem like straight-up punishment.
Oh, and if/when a breeze comes along, the hair has to just keep getting better and better. That would be a bomb-@ss hair day right there.
- What’s your stance on duck-face selfies?
I treat ’em like red pepper flakes (in that a little goes a long way). I think they can be cute every once in a great while, like once every three or four months, but when every other pic is a duck face, I think that’s a bit much for me. But it’s just a personal preference.
- When was the last time you tried some nail art, and how did it turn out?
Hmm… I think it was around last January, and I don’t remember exactly what I did, but I remember it being a mess.
Basically, I’m not the hippest homegirl on the block when it comes to nail art. I think some people are amazing at it, and I’m blown away by what they do, but I barely have the patience these days to paint my paws a single color, much less add an accent nail!
- 3 things you’d never, ever wear?
1. A bowl cut
2. A cropped white leather jacket with extra long fringe
3. Capri pants that aren’t workout pants (don’t get me started on this)
- Today I’m feeling __________.
Really good about the week, even though it’s going to be crazy busy. I have quite a few appointments planned (a doctor’s appointment tomorrow, a big blogging project later this week, a work lunch one day, and a few other things), but I did some planning over the weekend, and so I feel well prepared.
I haven’t been this organized in a really long time, and it feels great.
Your turn. 🙂 Just copy and paste the following questions into a comment with your answers. I look forward to reading ’em!
1. Describe your perfect hair day.

5. Today I’m feeling __________.
Hello and good morning, sweetpea. I’m sitting here at my desk, constantly refreshing the Sephora website because I’m waiting for their VIB Rouge Epic Rewards program to start. 🙂
The store’s doing a promotion where you can cash in your VIB points for some cool gift sets, and I’ve been hoarding my points for years! Literally, years. So I’ve got my eye on this YSL set with a whole bunch of eyeshadow palettes and mascaras in it. Everything’s first come, first serve, and Cave Girl Karen is hovering around the campfire waiting to pounce…
How’s your Monday coming along? Peaceful, easy and filled with kitties, I hope.
Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,
