Makeup and Beauty Blog Monday Poll, Vol. 307

The Makeup and  Beauty Blog Monday Poll for January 20, 2014

May you always see rainbows…

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 seven years. I’ve always enjoyed reading your answers in the comments, and I hope you enjoy reading mine.

  1. Have you ever owned a Caboodle?
    YES, and I still have it, LOL! My grandma bought it for me many moons ago. It’s mint green and pink, and I keep old costume jewelry in it from my teen years that I don’t wear anymore but can’t part with.

    Funny thing is…I don’t think I ever kept makeup in it. I’ve always used it for jewelry and knick-knacks.

  2. What’s the first thing you do when you get to work?
    Well, the workday here at Tabs the Cat Industries, LLC, starts early. First, I make a pot of coffee, and then clean off my desk, which is usually always a mess from the day before.
  3. What’s the bravest thing you’ve ever done?
    Hmm… Well, the first thing that comes to mind was when I left a secure job working in the legal department for a big company to pursue freelance writing some years ago.

    Thank goodness for El Hub…because without his encouragement, I don’t think I would’ve done that on my own.

  4. How often do you entertain?
    Rarely, but not because I don’t want to. I just don’t ever feel like I have enough time to get it together to invite people over, plan a meal, then clean and cook.
  5. What’s one of your mottos?
    “Please leave your crazy at the door.”
  6. How many hours of sleep do you get a night?
    Around 7-8, which is enough for me to function, but not enough to be my best. I think I do my best when I get — no kidding — 10-12 hours of sleep.
  7. We’re rollin’ up to In-N-Out for lunch! What would you like?
    A grilled cheese with grilled onions, tomato and lettuce (cut in half please). Also, fries and a vanilla shake.

    I’ll run it all off later (I hope).

  8. What three things never fail to make you smile?
    When men hold and coo at babies, watching kittens (especially tabbies) play, seeing something I’ve been wanting to buy go on sale (YES!).
  9. What mascara are you wearing today?
    MAC Extended Play Gigablack Lash. We fell out of love for a while, but we’re back together again.
  10. When was the last time you saw a rainbow?
    It has been a while, but then we haven’t seen much rain here in California this year…

    May 2012, I think?

Le List

Now it’s your turn. Just copy and paste the following questions into a comment with your answers. I look forward to reading ‘em! :)

1. Have you ever owned a Caboodle?
2. What’s the first thing you do when you first get to work?
3. What’s the bravest thing you’ve ever done?
4. How often do you entertain?
5. What’s one of your mottos?
6. How many hours of sleep do you get a night?
7. We’re rollin’ up to In-N-Out for lunch! What would you like to order?
8. What three things never fail to make you smile?
9. What mascara are you wearing today?
10. When was the last time you saw a rainbow?

Happy Martin Luther King Jr. Day, everyone. Are you taking the day off? Things are proceeding as usual here at Tabs the Cat Industries, LLC. Tabs figures that jumping right back into the regular work schedule will help distract us from the heartbreak of the 49ers losing the game yesterday (he doesn’t want to talk about it).



Hope you’re having a nice day so far. I’m about to make a second cup of coffee. Would you like one, too?

Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,

Karen

  1. Ruchita says:

    1. Have you ever owned a Caboodle?
    Yes! I had the exact same mint green and pink one. I’m not sure what happened to it. I hope it’s still in my parent’s basement somewhere.

    2. What’s the first thing you do when you first get to work?
    Get a cup of hot chocolate or tea.

    3. What’s the bravest thing you’ve ever done?
    Get married. There was some family tension about my decision, but things are good now.

    4. How often do you entertain?
    We don’t formally entertain, but we’ll have people over a couple of times a month. It’s very casual. Everyone brings food and my husband mixes drinks.

    5. What’s one of your mottos?
    This too shall pass.

    6. How many hours of sleep do you get a night?
    I get about 5-6. I want more like 8-10. Seriously, I love to sleep. Saturday mornings are the best.

    7. We’re rollin’ up to In-N-Out for lunch! What would you like to order?
    I have never been to In-N-Out. I’ve heard it’s awesome!

    8. What three things never fail to make you smile?
    1. Fluffy kitty belly – especially when it’s Mingy sleeping flat on his back.
    2. Pretty much any scene from Bridesmaids, which was just on TV last night.
    3. Freshly frosted cupcakes that I’ve just finished baking.

    9. What mascara are you wearing today?
    Maybelline Mega Plush

    10. When was the last time you saw a rainbow?
    I think it was last year – maybe late summer or fall.

    Happy Monday!

  2. Ashley H. says:

    1. Have you ever owned a Caboodle?

    No, I usually go for train cases and bags made of fabric. Mine are all leopard print.

    2. What’s the first thing you do when you first get to work?

    I like to set up my desk for the day, look at what needs to be done, organize, etc. I am also OCD about checking email, so I do that too.

    3. What’s the bravest thing you’ve ever done?

    Nothing serious, I love rollercoasters. The steeper and faster the better. I am not usually a risk taker.

    4. How often do you entertain?

    Every once in a while, not as often as I’d like. I just finished school so it took up most of my time.

    5. What’s one of your mottos?

    Where there’s a will, there’s a way.

    6. How many hours of sleep do you get a night?

    About 6-9 (hopefully), but sometimes that number can drop to 3 or 4.

    7. We’re rollin’ up to In-N-Out for lunch! What would you like to order?

    There are no In-N-Outs where I live, so I’ll pretend its McDonald’s. When I’m hungry I go for Premium Chicken and Ranch Wrap with Fries and a Coke.

    8. What three things never fail to make you smile?

    Happy babies playing or laughing. Getting a deal on something I want. Anything funny like videos, jokes, etc.

    9. What mascara are you wearing today?

    MAC In Extreme Dimension

    10. When was the last time you saw a rainbow?

    A long time ago, perhaps elementary school. I remember the rainbow not when I saw it if that makes sense.

  3. Donna N says:

    1. Have you ever owned a Caboodle?
    –yes, and we still have it, although my husband repurposed it to store little bits and pieces of computer parts, so it’s in his workroom area of our basement–it’s bright blue and green with a neon pink handle and closure—VERY MANLY–LOL!!!

    2. What’s the first thing you do when you first get to work?
    –ditch my coat, hat and gloves, turn on my computer and then go make a big cup of tea!!

    3. What’s the bravest thing you’ve ever done?
    –when I was younger (and QUITE naive of the dangers of the world), I chased after a shoplifting duo that I had witnessed in a United Colors of Benetton store that doesn’t even exist anymore. Needless to say, in today’s violent climate, I would not do the same…..

    4. How often do you entertain?
    –rarely ever….we’re QUITE the homebodies and rarely go out—I think it’s because of the toddler in our midst—she occupies most of our free time!

    5. What’s one of your mottos?
    –”easy-peasy lemon squeezy”….my daughter giggles when I say it :)

    6. How many hours of sleep do you get a night?
    –I try for a minimum of at least 6hours—during the work week I have to get up by 5am so I can get myself ready PLUS the munchkin, so we can be out the door and in the car by 7:25am at the latest!!

    7. We’re rollin’ up to In-N-Out for lunch! What would you like to order?
    –well, a cheeseburger (NO lettuce or onion, please) and a root beer–thanks for offering! ;)

    8. What three things never fail to make you smile?
    –my daughter’s giggle, hugs from my husband and a good cup of tea!

    9. What mascara are you wearing today?
    –based on your review, I’m trying the dual-ended CoverGirl BOMBSHELL VOLUME by LashBlast mascara in Very Black…I’ve been wearing it now for about a week and while the first day was a bit brutal (my eyes itched to HOLY HECK!), I’ve since gotten used to the formula and love that it wears and doesn’t rub off—I even accidently slept in it one night and didn’t have my usually RACCOON eyes the following morning, like with other brands—so far so good!

    10. When was the last time you saw a rainbow?
    –I would have to say October, just before it started to get really cold here on the east coast.

  8. Julia Alkaseltzer says:

    Happy Martin Luther King, Jr. Day, Karen! I’m actually home sick so I had to use a sick day today. :( But I am convincing myself that I can use this day to relax and not be so stressed. I’ll start by filling out this poll! :)

    1. Have you ever owned a Caboodle?
    I haven’t actually. I’ve had other sorts of makeup cases, given to me when I was younger. I don’t remember brands.. but I loved them!
    2. What’s the first thing you do when you first get to work?
    I head to the break room and put my lunch in the fridge, and I fill up my water bottle, while checking to see if there is anything new and exciting in the vending machines.

    A tie between studying/living in England for a year and moving to Arizona. Both involves me living without family and friends and being completely out of my comfort zone.
    4. How often do you entertain?
    I’ve never actually done that. The closest I’ve entertained was with my parents who held family get togethers. I do dream of it whenever I’m at BevMo, buying all the nifty party favors and holding a cocktail party.. oh the dream. XD

    Go where the wind takes you.

    A rainbow I remember was last March or April? I believe it was a double rainbow, it was a dreary Sunday and upon entering the mall, I saw people scattered around the parking lot and staring toward one direction. Oh, those rainbows..

  9. Kellie says:

    1. Have you ever owned a Caboodle? Yes!!! I had a sparkly blue one during my teen years. I actually miss that thing.
    2. What’s the first thing you do when you first get to work? Boot up my computer, check my email, check voicemails and make a list of any clients I need to call. Usually a Starbucks run soon after :)
    3. What’s the bravest thing you’ve ever done? Fall in love!

    5. What’s one of your mottos? Everything happens for a reason.
    6. How many hours of sleep do you get a night? 6-9. I do my best with 9-12, same as you Karen! I need lots of sleep to feel normal.

    No, but I’ve always wanted one! Though nowadays I want a train – it just looks so cool to have your makeup in one.

    2. What’s the first thing you do when you first get to work?
    Sip coffee. I need coffee in order to function.

    3. What’s the bravest thing you’ve ever done?
    I think quitting my job and moving to NYC was and still is the bravest thing I’ve ever done. But not only do I have the support and encouragement of family and friends, so many people in this loving beauty industry are uber supportive, too.

    4. How often do you entertain?
    I haven’t since moving to NYC. I need to furnish my apartment before I can really have guests over. The last time I had a friend over we just watched YouTube videos and took a nap.

    5. What’s one of your mottos?
    Stop trying and just do it. My sister instilled that motto in me when I was 13 and whining about trying.

    Cheeseburger with whole grilled onions and chopped onions, animal style fries and a lemon-up.

    Puppies, kitties and Scott Eastwood shirtless (sorry Ryan, you’re just not doing it for me anymore).

    9. What mascara are you wearing today?
    Covergirl Lash Blast Clump Crusher. It’s the ish.

    10. When was the last time you saw a rainbow?
    A few months ago I believe. Hmmm…

  11. Katherine M says:

    1. Have you ever owned a Caboodle?
    ~Can’t say I have.

    2. What’s the first thing you do when you first get to work?
    ~I’ve had about 2 totally different jobs now, but in the ER I used to like to get there early and check out what was going on. I also had a routine down for the mornings (usually stocking needed to be done, or else we wouldn’t have what we needed for the day). In my other job, we had PT (physical training) first thing in the morning on the day schedule.

    3. What’s the bravest thing you’ve ever done?
    ~For me, maintaining a positive attitude and being self-motivated when all the odds have been against me. It helps when you have support at home when you are taking a big leap from a “safe” job to one where you aren’t sure what will happen. It’s hard to be positive when there are some people in this world who are determined to make you feel horrible about things beyond your control. It’s hard to help others when you aren’t sure about things yourself, but I’ve done it.

    4. How often do you entertain?
    ~Not very often…like you, I feel like there isn’t enough time to plan, cook, and clean. I think I like it in theory more than I actually like doing it.

    5. What’s one of your mottos?
    ~one of my mottos is now one of husband’s “you are in charge of how you feel.” I love that one because it reminds me that someone can try to make me feel bad, but only I can decide if it will get to me. I’m human, I want to be liked and get along with everyone just like the rest of us, but I also realize that there are just some people out there that can’t play nice no matter what.

    6. How many hours of sleep do you get a night?
    ~5 to 8, but also like you I need about 10 to 12 to feel well rested.

    7. We’re rollin’ up to In-N-Out for lunch! What would you like to order?
    ~Hmmmmm….what all is at In N Out? We don’t have any of those around here. We do have a Steak N Shake in Virginia that has some awesome shakes and burgers. I like the Salted Caramel Pretzel Shake with the Wisconsin Butter Burger.

    8. What three things never fail to make you smile?
    ~puppies, a good run/workout, and getting things organized.

    9. What mascara are you wearing today?
    ~None, because I will be going for a run in the balmy 50 degree weather we are having here today. And yet tomorrow we are supposed to be in another “polar vortex” and have 5 to 8 inches of snow. Go figure, this is life in MD lately.

    10. When was the last time you saw a rainbow?
    ~Not since some of the thunderstorms we had last summer.

  12. Yogirl says:

    9. What mascara are you wearing today? None. Hiking day and I just baked a lemon cake and I have dinner in the crockpot. Heading out to see American Hustle in a few so might put on lip gloss… :) Today is a no makeup day…it’s a lazy Monday holiday off (to honor the great MLK of course!)

    10. When was the last time you saw a rainbow? I think last week? The last show of lots of rainbows was heading on a trip north a few months ago. :)

    Snorkelling in the open ocean after having a panic attack. I was fine when I could see the shore, but as soon as we took a boat to our snorkel destination, I started having trouble breathing and really had to face my fears. In the end, as soon as I put my face in the water, I forgot about being far away from land and had a great time.
