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.
- Shower gel or bar soap?
LOL! Sorry. My mouth is full of banana right now. I’m trying to be better about eating a little something right after I exercise so I don’t crash.
Anyway! Lately, bar soap, because my skin’s been weirdly, unusually sensitive. I can’t even handle exfoliating gloves or washcloths or anything else that feels scratchy, so I’ve been using bar soaps a lot.
- I’m currently a big fan of _____.
Bright lips, bold lashes, soft brows, and otherwise very little on my skin.
Why? Because it’s been hella hot the past few days here in Northern California, and to be honest, I haven’t been wanting to wear much makeup.
I’ve been lovin’ on basic looks with super bright lips like I’m wearing in the pic at the top (I actually wore that on Saturday — creamy, orangey red Dolce & Gabbana Classic Cream Lipstick in Fire).
That, with just a bit of MAC Strobe Liquid in Golden Elixir (OMG, they need to reissue that ASAP!), with my brows done, mascara and under-eye concealer.
- Sometimes, the best thing you can do is ______.
Keep your mouth shut, take a deep breath and walk away. Then try it (whatever it is) again in 10 minutes.
- Are you the kind of gal/guy who can pull off wearing a white outfit and not get it dirty throughout the day?
Hell to the no! I love wearing white, especially in summer (it’s so crisp and cool), as long as I have a Tide Pen with me.
- What makeup are you wearing right now?
Your turn. 🙂 Just copy and paste the following questions into a comment with your answers. I look forward to reading ’em!
1. Shower gel or bar soap?
2. I’m currently a big fan of _____.
3. Sometimes, the best thing you can do is ______.
4. Are you the kind of gal/guy who can pull off wearing a white outfit and not get it dirty throughout the day?

Good morning, sweet girl! (Or sweet boy, if you’re one of the five dudes who reads MBB.)
It’s a new week, and you know how I like to get a little cheesy at the start of the week, right? Well, today I’m thinking about magic. 🙂
Like, I’m looking at my to-do list, and I’m already feeling on edge. But before I started to spiral, I reminded myself that life is kind of magical. Thing is, sometimes you have to look for it (the magic). That’s why I’m a big fan of the 5-minute walk.
It’s good to get up and walk around, maybe see a flower or two, put on a pretty lipstick or spritz some perfume — just as long as you get up from your computer, because as much as I love computers, they are not usually where the magic hides.
OK, that’s enough corniness for now (sorry). Have a great day, and may the magic find you (get up from that computer!).
