Makeup and Beauty Blog Monday Poll, February 28

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 three years, which I guess makes this somewhere around Vol. 159. I’ve always enjoyed reading your answers in the comments, and I hope you enjoy reading mine.
  1. Mood:
  2. Just peachy. :)

  3. Did you watch the Oscars last night? If you did, what did you think?
  4. I caught the last half of the show with the big categories. I thought Ann looked beautiful in every one of her outfits, and James looked quite dapper, but most of the jokes I saw fell rather flat. My favorite part was probably Billy Crystal’s short segment.

  5. Have you ever dated someone you met online?
  6. Before I met El Hub, I went on a few dates with guys I’d met on Craigslist. They were all nice dudes, but no sparks. This was over 10 years ago, mind you, when the site wasn’t as scary/seedy, and WAY before Lifetime movies like The Craigslist Killer.

  7. Button-down denim skirts, yea or nay?
  8. Yea when I rocked that look in sixth grade (with my high-top Reeboks); now, not so much.

  9. Favorite drugstore body lotion?
  10. CeraVe. Budget beauty babes, that stuff’s great for dealing with ashy skin.

  11. Your default work outfit?
  12. When I’m just working from home, my default look is rather unglamorous, but when I have a meeting or an event to go to, I’ll usually reach for my J. Brand 811 skinny jeans, a blazer and heels.

  13. A country you’d love to visit?
  14. Where to begin? For starters, Italy. I’d love to eat my way through Tuscany…

  15. Something you wish you had more time for?
  16. Dance classes!

  17. What are you wearing on your lips today?
  18. MAC Cremesheen Glass in Deelight from the MAC Packed to Go Girl About Town set. It’s been my go-to gloss as of late.

  19. Weekly goals:
  20. I’m keeping it simple this week. I plan treat myself kindly and with love. :) Oh, and I need to drink more water throughout the day.

I drink a redonkulous amount of tea, and one of my favorite brands lately has been Yogi. They have an almost hippie-dippy vibe, and sell the regular flavors along with various blends to address different issues like stress, joint health and “regularity” (hey, it’s an issue).

Anywho, all of their teabags have a corny little quote on the label (which I love). Some of them really get me thinking, like this morning’s: “Whatever you are, you are. Be proud of it.”

What am I? Well, I’m a slightly out-of-shape, Nutella-loving cat lady with a penchant for pink lipgloss. I also have a bunch of traits many people would consider faults. I wear my heart on my sleeve (NO poker face whatsoever), I’m not very competitive, and I’m probably too sensitive for my own good.

I’m always trying to improve in these areas, you know, to get tougher and all, but at my core, I know this is who I am.

Gotta hand it to those Yogi tea folks for their great tea and good food for thought. Whatever you are, you are. Be proud of it, my friend. :)

Anywho, back to the Monday Poll. Will you come by and say hi? I always like hearing from ya.

    3. Have you ever dated someone you met online?: Yup! I think there’s a stigma against people my age (I’m 22) going on dating websites, but it’s a way for me to meet people I never would otherwise. As long as you’re safe about it, you can meet some great people.

    Le List…

    1. Mood:
    Tired. Seems like I say that every Monday. :-) Up too late and then there was crazy wind and rain that kept me up.

    2. Did you watch the Oscars last night? If you did, what did you think?
    Yep, watched the red carpet coverage and the entire show. It was okay. I agree that some of the jokes fell flat and there weren’t really any surprises in any of the categories. I did like the Oscar fashions much better than the Golden Globes.

    3. Have you ever dated someone you met online?
    Nope. I’ve never tried online dating.

    4. Button-down denim skirts, yea or nay?
    Definitely nay!

    5. Favorite drugstore body lotion?
    Eucerin.

    6. Your default work outfit?
    Usually a pair of dress pants, knit shirt and cardigan. In warmer weather, I wear dresses b/c they are just one piece of clothing I have to worry about!

    7. A country you’d love to visit?
    Tahiti/Bora Bora/Moorea and Switzerland.

    8. Something you wish you had more time for?
    I’d like to try to do more baking – like decorating cupcakes and cookies.

    9. What are you wearing on your lips today?
    My usual Sally Hansen Diamond 12 hour gloss. It’s been my go-to gloss for a while.

    10. Weekly goals:
    I’m setting a fun goal of shopping for some shoes. I’ve been keeping watch on some good sales online.

    Thanks for the quote about being who you are. That’s nice to hear b/c I definitely get hard on myself sometimes about all the things that I’m not. I’ll try and remember that during the week. :-)

  9. Lucie says:

    Mood:
    Nice and lazy feelin’. It’s a snowday so I’ve been catching up on some z’s!

    Did you watch the Oscars last night? If you did, what did you think?
    I live in the boonies; we don’t have a tv. :D But I probably wouldn’t have even if we did.

    Have you ever dated someone you met online?
    Nope.

    Button-down denim skirts, yea or nay?
    Nay nay nay nay.

    Favorite drugstore body lotion?
    None of it seems to do anything for my skin, I’m too lazy to deal with body lotion anyway!

    Your default work outfit?
    I work at a dog kennel, so my outfit is pretty unglamorous as well. A pair of sturdy boyfriend jeans, a thermal shirt, and some very manly work boots do the job-can only wear things I don’t mind getting dog poop and vomit on!

    A country you’d love to visit?
    Turkey! I’d love to visit the Blue Mosque.

    Something you wish you had more time for?
    Reading glossy fashion magazines on rainy days.

    What are you wearing on your lips today?
    My new Cle de Peau extra rich lipstick in Red Abundance. Every man woman and child needs a tube of this lipstick. I can’t stop pimping it to everyone I know!

    Weekly goals:
    Keep up in french class! I won’t be spouting lines from Les Miserables anytime soon, but I’ll be damned if I don’t get that language credit!

  10. Megan says:

    Happy Monday, Karen! Your Monday posts help make the beginning of my week go a bit happier. :)

    1. Mood: Weary, but optimistic. I have a runny-nosed one-year-old who hates tissues, and I’m feeling a bit cold-ish myself. All that being said, the idea of being proud of what I am has lifted my spirits quite a bit.

    2. Did you watch the Oscars last night? If you did, what did you think? I caught the last hour or so. I think there’s never been a more perfect body for couture than Anne Hathaway’s, and even though she and Franco had no chemistry, she still came across as someone you could take a road trip with and still be friends with at the end. Oh–and the PS 22 kids had me teary-eyed!

    3. Have you ever dated someone you met online? Nope. Not that I’m against it; it’s more that i wasn’t exactly rolling in the dates before I met my husband. :)

    4. Button-down denim skirts, yea or nay? Oh no. I can’t think of one appropriate time or place, even if you’re Amish or extremely conservative.

    5. Favorite drugstore body lotion? Cetaphil Heavy Moisturizing Cream. One application makes it look like sure, you took great care of your legs all winter!

    6. Your default work outfit? Up in the air. I’m a stay at home mom, trying to avoid the whole mom-outfit deal. I definitely have hoodie and sweatpants days, but usually, I’d guess jeans, a simple long-sleeve shirt (Target has the best basics!) and some cute flats. And makeup, nearly always!

    7. A country you’d love to visit? I could eat my way through Italy, too, but I think Ireland would be somewhere I’d never want to leave.

    8. Something you wish you had more time for? Volunteering at the animal shelter I adopted my Pepper kitty from. I’m there every other week, but before I had Tommy, it was three times a week–and I love my baby, but I miss my kitties!

    9. What are you wearing on your lips today? Comfort stuff–Lip Smackers in strawberry. Holds up to nose-blowing and sneezing. :(

    10. Weekly goals: Cook four healthy dinners, play well at my new Wednesday volleyball league, and remember that the world won’t end if I don’t vacuum the family room.

    • Karen says:

      Happy Monday (and almost Tuesday), Megan! You have a great week, and have fun at your volleyball games. I always wished I could play the sport… I think it’s exciting to watch. It’s rough when you have no hand/eye coordination, though LOL!

      • Megan says:

        I (actually) hear you on the whole hand-eye coordination thing. I’m naturally the opposite of athletic, and I’m also only 5 foot 2, so it’s not like I can spike with authority or anything. I’ve just been trying to play for almost 15 years now, and I think I’m finally catching on. :) So I think you should try it anyway!

        Have a lovely week–all your pictures of that Tarte neutrals palette are really tempting me to go to Sephora 0:-)

        • Karen says:

          You should definitely swatch the palette! Who knows, maybe it’ll be love at first sight. Oh, and if you haven’t already, try the new Tarte blushes. They’re fantastic.

          As for volleyball… in a parallel universe somewhere I’m bumping, setting and spiking, but not in this one, LOL! I have a really hard time with projectile sports in general. If something flies through the air with a good amount of speed my first instinct is to run away. :)

  11. 1. Mood:
    A little excited, a little agitated.

    2. Did you watch the Oscars last night? If you did, what did you think?
    I didn’t watch it because I was in class at the time (Time zones :P), but I think the Social Network movie was over-rated D:

    3. Have you ever dated someone you met online?
    Yes, but we drifted apart due to my moving and all at that time. We’ve never seen each other physically, though, but through web cams and phone calls.

    4. Button-down denim skirts, yea or nay?
    Depends. For me it’d be a nay haha :P

    5. Favorite drugstore body lotion?
    Eubos Sensitive Skin lotion works a charm for me.

    6. Your default work outfit?
    Since I’m a student, my ensemble usually consists of a mixture of jeans, sleeveless tops, hoodies, scarves, dresses, shirts, shorts and shirt-dresses. Only the occasional suit or blazer for formal presentations.

    7. A country you’d love to visit?
    The U.K. :D

    8. Something you wish you had more time for?
    Myself- I’ve always been there for my Mum and boyfriend and always on call for them (Even if they don’t need me to, I feel the need to be on standby in case they do), that I’m neglecting myself- my health mainly. Need to recuperate!

    9. What are you wearing on your lips today?
    Dermalogica Climate Control Lip Treatment. My lips have been chapped lately for some reason :\

    10. Weekly goals:
    This week, I’m going to live in the moment as much as I can, and worry less. I’ve been worried intensely the whole of last week and it’s wrecking havoc on my health because of my Masters application, and although it’s not anywhere near done yet, I plan to just take things as they are and go with the flow :)

  12. stacie says:

    1. Mood: Glad, that I’ve finished work!
    2. Did you watch the Oscars last night? If you did, what did you think? I watched the carpet and am just catching up on the highlights.
    3. Have you ever dated someone you met online? No
    4. Button-down denim skirts, yea or nay? Not for me
    5. Favorite drugstore body lotion? Aveeno
    6. Your default work outfit? Jeans boots and sweater
    7. A country you’d love to visit? Japan

    – research and purchase good running shoes
    (YAY FOR THE HEALTH KICK – i hope it lasts longer than 2 weeks. lol)

    • Melissa says:

      I did my running shoe research/purchase a couple weeks ago. http://www.runningshoeswizard.com/
      I ended up with Asics Cumulus because I’m a underpronator. LOVE THEM! Like I’m running on Care Bears – they care alot! Good luck!

    • Karen says:

      I highly suggests going to a specialty running store. Years ago (1995?) I found my running shoes via one in my college town.

      One of the sales associates analyzed my running pattern (they had me run up and down a street) and then suggested a few different styles. I tried them all out by running around in the store and then eventually ended up with Saucony Grids. I’ve been wearing the same style of shoe ever since and can’t even begin to count how many pairs I’ve gone through!

  14. Fieran says:

    1. Mood: Alright – had a strange day at work (bad strange) so its going to be a tough week.
    2. Did you watch the Oscars last night? If you did, what did you think? No, I don’t have a TV :) In Norway you have to pay a license to own a TV and I figured I don’t really need one. So I buy a lot of DVDs and go to the cinemas often instead.
    3. Have you ever dated someone you met online? Nope. The bf is the only person I have ever dated.
    4. Button-down denim skirts, yea or nay? I think I had one as a teenager but it never looked that great on me.
    5. Favorite drugstore body lotion? Neutrogena Norwegian Formula – you can’t get it in Norway so I usually haul a few bottles when I travel to Germany. Lately I’ve been using other stuff to rotate.
    6. Your default work outfit? Jeans and a sweater with snow shoes – then switch to black low heeled boots when I reach work.
    7. A country you’d love to visit? Spain.
    8. Something you wish you had more time for? Working out. I wish I could go to the gym 5 days a week so I will look hot and be belly-free.
    9. What are you wearing on your lips today? MAC’s clear lip conditioner. It’s one of the very few lip balms that kind of work for me.
    10. Weekly goals: Survive Norwegian language courses this week – we have a test on Thursday. Survive PMS and try to go to the gym at least twice this week.
    Fieran recently posted … A Good Weekend Yet Another Reason Why I Like Norway

    • Karen says:

      I wish I could go 5 days a week too. While I’m at it I’d love a personal trainer and a nutritionist too!

      • Fieran says:

        I have a coupon for 2 free personal trainer sessions – it’s part of the deal I signed up for at gym. I’m terrified of scheduling the sessions as I have seen the personal trainer nonchalantly step around a lady who was on the ground trying really hard to do core training with a kettlebell. She was tormented and the personal trainer’s reaction kind of scared me a little bit; OK maybe a lot. So I keep putting off the sessions.. I will probably regret it later. Sigh :)

        • Karen says:

          Do it, girl! Those personal training sessions aren’t cheap. Make them give you some tough love! That’s what I’d do (glutton for punishment and all).

  15. Jen in VA says:

  16. Stacey F. says:

    Regarding your “faults” Karen, In business school- and life- I have learned that you will not make much headway by punishing a person for their “shortcomings”, or trying to improve them in those areas. If you want to maximize a person’s potential you play to their strengths- that’s a WINNING STRATEGY!!!

  17. Christy says:

    1. Mood: rested & happy :)
    2. Did you watch the Oscars last night? If you did, what did you think? I watched the first part. I thought the wins were so predictable, an Oscars almost wasn’t necessary & regarding the younger duo hosts, I think an article I read summed it up perfectly: “Mr. Cooler-Than-Thou and Miss Eager-to-Please never really synched.”
    3. Have you ever dated someone you met online? Actually, I met my current boyfriend of 2 1/2 years on Craigslist (again I’d like to re-iterate, before the Craigslist killer, etc.) :) We live together and are super happy!
    4. Button-down denim skirts, yea or nay? As long as the buttons aren’t gaping apart (eww) then yay!
    5. Favorite drugstore body lotion? that Vaseline Sheer Infusion (I remember I bought it after your review!) Too bad it’s no longer on sale!
    6. Your default work outfit? gray dress pants, black top & black flats. Simple & easy!
    7. A country you’d love to visit? you said it, Italy!
    8. Something you wish you had more time for? working out & seeing friends
    9. What are you wearing on your lips today? just lip balm
    10. Weekly goals: umm to survive the week! lol I guess get a few workouts in

        Amen to that! I usually try to get petites but sometimes I find a really good deal on Express dress pants at Marshalls but they are always long so, I’ve perfected the process of hemming my own pants ;-) Gotta love a good deal!

        • Karen says:

    3. Have you ever dated someone you met online?

I haven’t scheduled it because I don’t want to leave him over night at the vet, but they’re the best in town and I know it’s for his own good!

    Happy Monday everyone!

  29. lexi says:

    Thanks for that crunch, hippie bit of wisdom! HAHAHA – seriously though, I constantly fight who I am because I keep thinking I can be a much better version of myself. I will try to accept myself: a hopeless dreamer, a procrastinator, a size 12 trying to chase my old size 6 body, just to name a few…I am and will always be a good friend, loving wife and devoted mother, hopeless dreamer, I truly believe that there is good in all (or most people) and devoted cosmetic customer!!

    1. Mood: less bloated…this is a GOOD thing!

    2. Did you watch the Oscars last night? If you did, what did you think? I did and my favorite acceptance speech was from the guy that won for best short – “I’d like to thank my Mom that did craft services…” so cute and spoken like a new filmmaker – a trait I hope he doesn’t lose like the rest of the jaded Hollywood set!

    3. Have you ever dated someone you met online? That’s how I met my husband – not on a dating site but a regular old chat board!

    4. Button-down denim skirts, yea or nay? If I’m trying to look like my 6th grade band teacher in ’86 then yes.

    5. Favorite drugstore body lotion? Curel – for dry/sensitive skin. This is a god send to my eczema riddled skin – it feels like I have a soothing powder on my skin and it absorbs nicely.

    6. Your default work outfit? Something that’s not wrinkled and doesn’t make me look too fat.

    7. A country you’d love to visit? I really want to make it to Italy someday. I want to start in Florence and work my way down to the island of Sicily.

    8. Something you wish you had more time for? Just more time in general for my daughter and husband. Oh and I would like to stay for a full Spin class during the work week.

    1. Mood: On the road to good. Just OK for now, but I’m having some faith this week!
    2. Did you watch the Oscars last night? If you did, what did you think? I did not. I meant to, but then fell asleep around 5:30. Later on when I got up, all I wanted to watch was ANTM, which was PVRed from last wednesday..
    3. Have you ever dated someone you met online? I guess. It wasn’t a match.com thing or anything.. just a friend of a friend that I started talking to online..
    4. Button-down denim skirts, yea or nay? Nay. Just. Nay. Especially if their floor length. i can forgive you for minis, but past the knee is gross.
    5. Favorite drugstore body lotion? Good old vaseline. Love that stuff. Have a bottle basically everywhere I am–> work, boys house, home.
    6. Your default work outfit? We’re pretty slack here, which makes me sad, but relieved. So usually jeans, shirt, (hopefully) nice cardy/sweater.. but sometimes I hoody it up (ITS COLD HERE!)

    8. Something you wish you had more time for? Exercise/clean living. I really want to be neat and tidy, but I just don’t have time. I have a bunch of fitness crazy friends and they make me feel so guilty with their spin classes.. I need to enroll in SOMETHING.. I was thinking pole dancing to shake it up a bit :D
    9. What are you wearing on your lips today? oo some Jack Black’s lip therapy, some revlon’s Blushed with a bit of Rimmel’s Paris Rose on top since it’s WAY to bright on its own.
    10. Weekly goals: Exercise!!! Jillian Micheals is going to kick my ass tonight. Also, figure out what is wrong with my cat.. she’s been acting quite strange lately, and usually there is a reason. Unpack and do some laundry!!

  31. Stef Smith says:

    1. Mood: Sleepy.

    2. Did you watch the Oscars last night? If you did, what did you think? I sure did! It seemed a little boring, it wasn’t the “young and hip” Oscars that it was reported to be. Everyone looked amazing though.

    3. Have you ever dated someone you met online? Ha! Nope, I’ve been married for 15 years, together 17, they didn’t have the internet back then! LOL!

    Thank you for the ending to your poll today in reference to the Yogi tea box quote. I try to be as self aware as possible and to keep it positive. But the last week has been wearing me down. After I read the quote “whatever you are, is what you are”, I did as my client always tells me to do, “take inventory” . It is a good reminder of all the positive things about myself. And as for the things I need to work on, well, that’s just called being human, and frankly, they don’t call it work for nothin! Thank you for uplifting my spirits :) It’s always nice to know you’ve helped someone in their day.

  50. Elle says:

    Mood:
    Pretty happy.

    Did you watch the Oscars last night? If you did, what did you think?
    I did – could have done without the hosts (seriously, either ask Stephen Colbert to do it or bring back someone else like Jon Stewart or Steve Martin) but I was so thrilled to FINALLY see C-Bale get recognized for his work.

    Have you ever dated someone you met online?
    Nope.

    Button-down denim skirts, yea or nay?
    Nay. I’m kind of discriminatory when it comes to denim. I only like actual jeans or denim jackets. That’s it.

    Favorite drugstore body lotion?
    Hmm, don’t know if I have one. Vaseline, probably. Or Nivea.

    Your default work outfit?
    Usually just jeans and a nice shirt or sweater. If I’m feeling saucy, a pencil skirt and nice shoes.

    A country you’d love to visit?
    I have been dying to go to Australia.

    Something you wish you had more time for?
    Reading. I go through phases where I’ll tear through 4 books in a month, then go 2 months without reading.

    What are you wearing on your lips today?
    Burberry liner in Sepia topped with Chanel gloss in…Praline I think?

    Weekly goals:
    Laundry, reading, cleaning my closet, and starting on my taxes.

    • Karen says:

      Me too! Wasn’t it kind of funny when he gave Dicky’s website a shout out? Now if only he’d mention MBB, haha!

      How have you been? Have you started boxing lessons yet?

    2. Did you watch the Oscars last night? If you did, what did you think? No, I didn’t, even though I love me some Colin Firth.

    3. Have you ever dated someone you met online? Yes. It sucked.

    4. Button-down denim skirts, yea or nay? Oh, no. Big time nay.

    5. Favorite drugstore body lotion? Burt’s Bees Aloe and Buttermilk lotion. It’s smaller than I would like, but I like that it is mostly natural. Just call me EcoChick.

    6. Your default work outfit? Even though I am in my 30s, I am a full time college student, so I wear whatever I want!

    7. A country you’d love to visit? SPAIN! I didn’t get a chance to when I was stationed in Germany :(

    • Karen says:

      I have to try that lotion, Adria. I’m a huge Burt’s Fan!

      When were you stationed in Germany and how long were you there?

      • Adria says:

        I was stationed there for 3 years, way way back in 2002-2005. I was based in a small city two hours east of Frankfurt. Germany is wonderful. Trying to convince Hubinator to get stationed there…well, after I go to law school, that is!

        A friend and I drove through Italy one four day weekend. It. Was. Awesome. That place is just too beautiful, and the food is too good. If I lived there I would weigh 500 lbs. in 2 months.

        • Karen says:

          How cool. If I ever make it out there you’ll have to tell me the fun things to do/places to eat!

          Right now I’m toying with the idea of going to Italy in May… if I go then the stretchy pants are coming with, for sure. ;)

  52. Leona says:

    1. Mood: Tired.

    2. Did you watch the Oscars last night? If you did, what did you think? No, I didn’t watch them. I checked out some of the photos online (to drool over pretty dresses) but none of them really did it for me.

    3. Have you ever dated someone you met online? Sort of. I once had an internet “boyfriend” but he lived in Wales and I’m in New Zealand, so it obviously didn’t work out, haha. It really depends what you’d consider dating – I don’t think it counts because we never met IRL.

    4. Button-down denim skirts, yea or nay? No. I don’t like button down skirts in any fabric.

    5. Favorite drugstore body lotion? There’s a brand in NZ (and Australia I think too) called Enya. They make olive oil lotion, emu oil lotion, vitamin E cream… a whole range of stuff. It’s reasonably priced and works amazingly.

    6. Your default work outfit? Uniform. Ugh.

    7. A country you’d love to visit? France. I studied French for five years and it would be nice to put it to use.

    8. Something you wish you had more time for? I have too much time on my hands I don’t know what to do with it. I guess I’m lucky in that respect.

    9. What are you wearing on your lips today? L’Oreal colour juice stick in Island Punch. It smells so good I want to eat it!

    10. Weekly goals: Attend all university lectures!

    1. Mood: Hopeful

    2. Did you watch the Oscars last night? If you did, what did you think? Not watched it yet, hoping Foxtel (Australia’s cable provider) will do repeats of it. I have seen the dresses though and thought that both Cate Blanchett and Michelle Williams are best dressed!

    3. Have you ever dated someone you met online? Nope.

    4. Button-down denim skirts, yea or nay? Nay. I have never been to a prairie and will never go, so don’t feel the need to wear one.

    5. Favorite drugstore body lotion? Don’t really have one. I am at the moment using a body oil by Aurora Spa Ritual (am) and a body moisturiser by Kiehl’s (pm).

    6. Your default work outfit? Jersey dress in either black, grey or blue. I don’t like to iron.

    7. A country you’d love to visit? At the moment, given that the Australian dollar is on parity with the US dollar, I’d like to shop my brains out in the US. But I’d also like to visit the Netherlands also, to visit my younger sister. I miss her!

    9. What are you wearing on your lips today? Burberry Hibiscus lippie

    10. Weekly goals: just get through (work) month end with my sanity in tact. Get through this week’s readings and start next week’s. Start thinking about assignment due in a month or so. Have fun and laugh more!

    3. Have you ever dated someone you met online? No, but my cousin did and eventually found her hubby that way.
    4. Button-down denim skirts, yea or nay? Hmm, depends on the skirt and length. Long denim skirts are a big fat no for me, I’m too short to pull it of. Knee length or shorter will depend on the style.
    5. Favorite drugstore body lotion? Nivea Firming Lotion. I know it probably doesn’t work, but I gotta hope!
    6. Your default work outfit? Jeans, t-shirt and a cardigan. We’re pretty relaxed :)
    7. A country you’d love to visit? Brazil
    8. Something you wish you had more time for? The gym and sleep. To make time for the gym, I have to cut down on sleep. For more sleep I end up cutting out my gym time.

    10. Weekly goals: Enjoy a small chunky almond brownie everyday :)

    6. Your default work outfit? Jeans + tee + cardigan + flats

  57. Cranky McCrankpants says:

    1. Mood:
    Peeved. I’m so hateful mad about my job I’m posting this without my usual name so I can sit here and vent about work to the internet at large (thank you, internet) – my company got bought out, my fabulous manager fired, and now I report to the epic douchebag CEO because he’s too arrogant to realize he isn’t qualified to manage a group of engineers. Today in a meeting he told me not to talk unless I had something productive to say. It’s the first time in memory I’ve ever trembled with rage.

    2. Did you watch the Oscars last night? If you did, what did you think?
    No but I watched the highlights today online. Blanchett’s dress was off the hook brilliant!

    3. Have you ever dated someone you met online?
    A couple times, I’m kinda a dork (by which I mean really a dork) so it’s easier to meet like minded nerds online. I’ve also had a billion agonizing dates with dudes I met online.

    4. Button-down denim skirts, yea or nay?
    Hooboy not for me!

    5. Favorite drugstore body lotion?
    I’m all about fragrance free so I use aveeno.

    6. Your default work outfit?
    I’m very athletic and have massive thighs and a huge butt compared to my waist, AND I’m 6 feet tall – buying clothes in not one but two specialty sizes, tall and curvy, blows! Also the tall + bootylicious combination makes me need much higher rises for pants to get the intended amount of coverage, which can also be hard to find. I work around it by wearing lots of flowy stretchy stuff that accomodates bodacious curves, or that drapey geometic crumpled linen type of style that cool old ladies wear. It’s not sexy, but it’s sooo comfortable! A friend once told me that I had pulled off a great trick with how I was able to wear pajamas every day yet look professional.

    7. A country you’d love to visit?
    Iceland – I love volcanoes and scandanavian people, and it’s got both!

    8. Something you wish you had more time for?
    Painting, setup and clean up take so long that it’s a hard hobby for the employed.

    9. What are you wearing on your lips today?
    Sparkly lipglass (“date night”) and likely an odd strand of cat hair.

    3. Have you ever dated someone you met online? Yes, unfortunately.
    4. Button-down denim skirts, yea or nay? No denim skirts!
    5. Favorite drugstore body lotion? I don’t really use them.
    6. Your default work outfit? T-shirt, cardigan, trousers.
    7. A country you’d love to visit? Japan!
    8. Something you wish you had more time for? Travelling would be one of them, but that requires money, too.
    9. What are you wearing on your lips today? Mac Red Full Stop! And I hope I can get me some supreme sheens today.

    I’m a bit late (Tuesday here) but my excuse is I spent Monday night playing darts at my friends’ :P My arm is still shaky!)

    Just wanted to chime re the Yogi Tea: I LOVE the Sweet Chili one! I discovered it about 4 years ago, and it’s SO helpful to get rid of bloating or feeling too full! Whenever I drink it at night, I wake up with a flat stomach. :) Actually drinking some at my desk right now.
    Their positive message always makes me very angry though… I remember a few years ago trying to get over a masters dissertation and bad breakup at the same time, and dreading those ‘happiness comes from the inside!’ chirpy lines hehe.

      I’m such a loser! I thought that said “default work out outfit,” not “work outfit.” My go-to work outfit is a pencil skirt and nice top, occasionally with a blazer.
