Makeup and Beauty Blog Monday Poll, Vol. 308

Published in: Just For Fun

Hourglass Ambient Blush

I took the new Hourglass Ambient Blushes out for a spin last weekend… Review coming soon!

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. Do you sing in the shower?
    Sometimes, when the rhythm moves me and I have a song stuck in my head. Aren’t showers the *best* places for improv American Idol auditions? I can definitely hit higher notes in the shower than I can in real life.
  2. Gold or silver jewelry?
    How about both? That way I don’t have to choose. :)
  3. If you were competing in the Winter Olympics, in what event would you compete?
    Snowboarding! Not that I do it very often. At all. But I think it’s probably the event I’d have the most aptitude for (which isn’t saying much).

    Too bad I can’t stand the cold or being in the snow! Yup, there’s that.

  4. Would you rather plan a party, or go to a party?
    Ya know, I like the idea of being one of those gals who effortlessly organizes fun and interesting dinner parties, but, to be honest, I’d rather just go as a guest, relax and enjoy myself.
  5. Ketchup or mustard?
    Ketchup, all the way. And a grilled cheese sandwich to dip into it.
  6. What are you most stressed out about this week?
    Well…at the moment, everything, LOL! I’m overwhelmed. I just don’t know how I’m going to finish everything I need to finish, but what’s new? It seems like that comes with the territory on Mondays, doesn’t it?
  7. Would you characterize your weekdays as structured or flexible (or something else)?
    Both. I do have tasks, like responding to emails; taking pictures at certain times of day (to chase the sunlight); setting up camera equipment, flashes and light reflectors; keeping batteries recharged; and producing series posts like the Monday Poll and Sundays With Tabs. But I also have a great deal of flexibility over how I choose to handle my posts, like whether I tell a poem or a story, or focus on the pictures, or something else.
  8. I’m at my silliest when…
    I’m chillin’ with my boys, El Hub and Tabs.
  9. What did you have for breakfast this morning?
    A smoothie made with almond milk, frozen blueberries, a banana, spinach (sounds gross, but I couldn’t really taste when it was all blended in) and vanilla protein powder. It was very fibrous and filling, LOL!
  10. What are three things you always have with you?
    My love for cats (and other animals), my wedding ring and a makeup bag filled with lipsticks and glosses. :)

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. Do you sing in the shower?
2. Gold or silver jewelry?
3. If you were competing in the Winter Olympics, in what event would you compete?
4. Would you rather plan a party or go to a party?
5. Ketchup or mustard?
6. What are you most stressed out about this week?
7. Would you characterize your weekdays as structured or flexible (or something else)?
8. I’m at my silliest when…
9. What did you have for breakfast this morning?
10. What are three things you always have with you?

A grungy hair and sweat pants greeting to you on this lovely Monday morning! :)

Please forgive the coffee breath, and yes, I do still have to shower, so you might want to remain an arm’s length away… (Sorry!)

Ever have one of those Monday mornings? Yup, I’m havin’ one.

The neurons aren’t firing the way they’re supposed to, and I’m not sure what to do. Doopdado…

I think this is where a second cup of coffee comes in. Can I get you one? A hot cup of Kona blend? It’s pretty yum.

Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,

Karen

    5. Ketchup or mustard? Ketchup.
    6. What are you most stressed out about this week? Nothing, yet. That’s the Universe’s invitation to drop a bunch of stressful things on my desk immediately.

    9. What did you have for breakfast this morning? Fiber One bar.
    10. What are three things you always have with you? Oh, boy. Right now I feel like it’s hangnails, dry skin and an extra 30 lbs! HAHA!

  10. Sylirael says:

    1. Do you sing in the shower?
    Not usually – my husband and I tend to shower together, so it’s more talking. TMI? We do it for very prosaic reasons – to save on the water and electricity bills! :-P

    Probably silver, or white gold, as they look nicer on my skin tone, I think!

    3. If you were competing in the Winter Olympics, in what event would you compete?
    Downhill skiing, biathlon or ice skating. I’m only really even remotely qualified for the first two but the third is so colourful and impressive!

    I don!t have a preference, really, but I guess going is less stressful than planning!

    9. What did you have for breakfast this morning?
    A homemade lemon muffin, natural yoghurt and a white-flesh nectarine :-)

    10. What are three things you always have with you?
    My wedding/engagement ring, thoughts about my thesis, and my thesis. Seriously, people, theses take over your life!

  11. StrayCat says:

    1. Do you sing in the shower?
    Nope. But I do sing when I’m alone in the car.
    2. Gold or silver jewelry?
    95% of the time gold jewelry. You can do the math on silver.
    3. If you were competing in the Winter Olympics, in what event would you compete?
    I’d be doing commentary on the athlete’s attire. From the bar. With a hot toddy. I don’t do winter….or winter sports.
    4. Would you rather plan a party or go to a party?
    Plan. Definitely love putting together a party. It’s much more fun than the actual event.
    5. Ketchup or mustard?
    Doesn’t one always go with the other?
    6. What are you most stressed out about this week?
    Packing, planning with house/critter sitter for next week departure to annual winter Hawaii holiday. Maui here I come!
    7. Would you characterize your weekdays as structured or flexible (or something else)?
    Flexible. I live my life as free of appointments and such as possible. I’m a very “as the spirit moves me” type of person.
    8. I’m at my silliest when…
    Talking “girl” talk with my friends.
    9. What did you have for breakfast this morning?
    Blueberries (I grew myself) on some kind of healthy fiber natural type cereal topped with unsweetened almond milk and a cup of Earl Grey tea.
    10. What are three things you always have with you?
    Humm….I often forget my phone, but if I want back in the house I try to remember my keys. I have allergies so I always have a Kleenex or two on me. So keys, Kleenex…oh and some kind of chapstick or balm.

  12. Shannon says:

    1. Do you sing in the shower?
    It depends on the time, actually! I’m a singer, and a year or two ago I was trying warm-ups in the shower – but my poor snoozing husband did NOT appreciate early-morning high notes streaming out of the bathroom! So, I tend to keep it pretty chill if I’m showering in the morning. :)
    2. Gold or silver jewelry?
    I’m with you, Karen – both, please!
    3. If you were competing in the Winter Olympics, in what event would you compete?
    Hmmm… How about ice skating?
    4. Would you rather plan a party or go to a party?
    I really enjoy both, actually. I *love* hosting – it has an energy all its own – but I also like just chilling at a friend’s place.
    5. Ketchup or mustard?
    Both, please!
    6. What are you most stressed out about this week?
    The fact that I need/want to do SO MUCH, maybe? It’s a little overwhelming right at this moment, but hopefully it’ll all shake out and I’ll actually get *some* things done instead of getting *nothing* done. :)
    7. Would you characterize your weekdays as structured or flexible (or something else)?
    Fairly structured, I’d say. I mean, I have to be at work 8-5 every day. My evenings are a little less structured, but trending towards being a bit more rigidly planned out… so goes the life!
    8. I’m at my silliest when…
    I’m with my family. My sister and mom, especially.
    9. What did you have for breakfast this morning?
    I rolled out to the train with my husband this morning, and he ordered me his “usual:” egg/bacon/cheese on a roll. Typical NY bodega-breakfast! Can’t say it’s very healthy though, lol.
    10. What are three things you always have with you?
    1) my metro card, 2) my ID, and 3) my incurable & insatiable hug-impulse.

    7. Would you characterize your weekdays as structured or flexible (or something else)?

    Part structure, part play time. I get everything done that I need to during the day, and then night time is for relaxing. Catching up on tv, reading a book, or watching youtube beauty videos!

    I’m with my friend, Bad Stacy! She’s called “Bad” Stacy for a reason! ;)

      I’m at my silliest when …
      I get together with long-time pals Kim and Felecia!
      It’s like some sort of solar flare when the three of us meet. We always have lunch at the same restaurant, and while we’re there we can usually count on at least one other fellow diner coming by our table, and remarking something like, “You seem to be having a good time!”
      And we’re stone sober, too. :)

    4. Would you rather plan a party or go to a party?: Go to a party.

    5. Ketchup or mustard?: Depends. Ketchup for french fries, mustard for a hot dog.

I work in the service industry, so my days off might occur in the middle of the week, and my shifts are never the same. I wish my week was a bit more structured, to tell the truth.
    8. I’m at my silliest when…I’m hanging out with my husband or my best friends.
