The Makeup and Beauty Blog Monday Poll for September 22, 2014

The Makeup and Beauty Blog Monday Poll for September 22, 2014

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.

  1. If you could dye your hair any color for exactly one month and then instantly go back to your current hair color without any damage/time spent growing it out, what color would you choose?
    Hmm… I’ve always LOVED the idea of pastel pink hair, but I haven’t realistically thought I could pull it off, since pale colors tend to make me look tired.

    But I’d still probably go with something bright and striking that you could see from a mile away.

    Maybe a lapis lazuli blue, or a bright pink like MAC’s Impassioned Lipstick.

  2. How do you like your pancakes? — plain, or with gobs of butter, fruit on top, syrup and/or other toppings?
    I like mine with bananas mixed into the batter, a tiny pat of butter on top, and lots of (room temperature) maple syrup.

    Yup, room temp. Me no likey cold syrup.

  3. A Bath & Body Works scent that always triggers fond memories for you?
    I was all about Country Apple back in the day (the ’90s), and whenever I’d be over at my friend Jen’s house, I’d steal a spritz of Juniper Breeze.
  4. I’m so over ____________.
    Super sharp and defined, sculpted brows. I still like the look on other people…but I’m totally over it on myself.

    It just takes too long, and I can’t be bothered with using six different products to fill in my brows.

    I’ll take a Tom Ford Brow Pencil any day.

  5. Do you have any weird rituals/habits you do when you’re in your car (or someone else’s)?
    I’m sure I have a few, but I can only think of one right now.

    Whenever I’m a passenger in someone’s car, and this is assuming I’m comfortable with the driver and haven’t just met them two seconds ago, I usually take off my shoes, because I just don’t see any point in wearing shoes unless you absolutely have to (they oppress the feet). 🙂

    But if I’m the one driving, of course, I keep my shoes on.

    Oh, boy… My dad used to give these long (and somewhat odd, now that I think about it) lectures about the perils about driving barefoot.

Le List

Your turn. 🙂 Just copy and paste the following questions into a comment with your answers. I look forward to reading ’em!


1. If you could dye your hair any color for exactly one month and then instantly go back to your current hair color without any damage/time spent growing it out, what color would you choose?
2. How do you like your pancakes? — plain, or with gobs of butter, fruit on top, syrup and/or other toppings?
3. A Bath & Body Works scent that always triggers fond memories for you?
4. I’m so over _________.
5. Do you have any weird rituals/habits you do when you’re in your car (or someone else’s)?

The more I think about it, the more I’m convinced that Karl Lagerfeld and I could be BFFs, as is “Best Frenemies Forever,” haha!

We’d be bound by our common love of beauty and our high maintenance diva cats…but we’d never be able to make it through afternoon tea without wanting to kill each other.

Your Karl quote for the week:

“Music gives color to the air of the moment.”

— Karl Lagerfeld

In related news, here are the songs currently coloring my air. I’m making a list of music for the Nike Women’s Half Marathon, and these are some recent additions…

    1. If you could dye your hair any color for exactly one month and then instantly go back to your current hair color without any damage/time spent growing it out, what color would you choose?
    Brown! I really want to try it and I have been seriously debating. I have a hair appointment on Wed and I still don’t know what to do, whether I should keep it blonde or go brown with caramel highlights…Any advice?

    2. How do you like your pancakes? — plain, or with gobs of butter, fruit on top, syrup and/or other toppings?
    I like plain with maple syrup or banana pancakes.

    3. A Bath & Body Works scent that always triggers fond memories for you?
    Warm Sugar Vanilla. When I was a student coming to the US I always bought this fragrance as a gift for my grandma and it always reminds me of her and how much I miss her.

    4. I’m so over _________.
    My current job…Sadly, not much I can do about it.

    5. Do you have any weird rituals/habits you do when you’re in your car (or someone else’s)?
    Not really…I don’t drive so I am always a passenger. I always keep my purse in my lap but I don’t know if that’s weird…

    Happy Monday, Karen. Hope you have a great week!

    2. How do you like your pancakes? — plain, or with gobs of butter, fruit on top, syrup and/or other toppings?- with syrup!

    4. I’m so over _________.-“traveling and living in hotel for work”… I travel for work and as much exciting I may sound, I am sooo over it!

    Happy Monday everyone!

    1. Hair color for one month: Hmmm well for many years I had a pixie cut that I dyed various colors, then snipped off when it grew out. Bright purple was my fave. So in a way I’ve already lived this experiment!! But it would be twice as fun and very impractical with long hair, which I have now. I’ll go with multicolor ombré gradations in reds and blonds with a few purple wisps and undertones.

    2. Pancakes: Swedish pancakes w Nutella. Butter would be redundant on that delish breakfast confection, though I’ve probably tried it 🙂

    3. Bath & Body Works: None. Missed that whole trend!!

    4. I’m so over _________: Wasting time.

    5. weird rituals/habits in the car: As a driver, I’m pretty much all business. As a passenger, I love to recline the seat and put my feet on the dash. Sans shoes, of course! I agree, shoes are so unlovable half the time. 🙂

    Have a wonderful week Karen!

  5. Stephanie A. says:

    1. If you could dye your hair any color for exactly one month and then instantly go back to your current hair color without any damage/time spent growing it out, what color would you choose? I would totally go red–a super-rich, gorgeous auburn-red. I have always wanted to try, but am totally not down with the maintenance involved in red hair!
    2. How do you like your pancakes? — plain, or with gobs of butter, fruit on top, syrup and/or other toppings? Chocolate chip with whipped cream!
    3. A Bath & Body Works scent that always triggers fond memories for you? Sun-Ripened Raspberry reminds me of my high-school years, in a really good way. A few years ago, they re-released it, and I bought it immediately. I DOUSED myself with the stuff for about a week, until a male friend remarked that I smelled like a stripper…
    4. I’m so over _________. Contouring! At some point, I became convinced that I needed to do a full contour when putting on my makeup–I have managed to wean myself now. Its exhausting, and frankly (unless I find myself in a position in the future where I am constantly photographed by paparazzi!) unnecessary!
    5. Do you have any weird rituals/habits you do when you’re in your car (or someone else’s)? This is awful. I apologize. I keep a pair of tweezers in my center console, and I search for/pluck gray hairs while sitting at stoplights. There’s something about the angle/lighting of the rearview mirror that makes them so noticeable. I’m ashamed that I do this…

  6. Dominique says:

    1. If you could dye your hair any color for exactly one month and then instantly go back to your current hair color without any damage/time spent growing it out, what color would you choose? Red ! 🙂

    2. How do you like your pancakes? — plain, or with gobs of butter, fruit on top, syrup and/or other toppings? I never eat pancakes but if I did, syrup

    3. A Bath & Body Works scent that always triggers fond memories for you? I never tried those products in fact

    4. I’m so over ___the Naked or Vice ( 1,2,3 ) enough is enough, generally speaking lack of artistic work on a collection______.

    5. Do you have any weird rituals/habits you do when you’re in your car (or someone else’s)? Oh yes I keep checking my keys all the time.

  7. Remi says:

    1. If you could dye your hair any color for exactly one month and then instantly go back to your current hair color without any damage/time spent growing it out, what color would you choose?

    I have pastel purple/pink hair, which I love. I have been every crazy color between blue-black and white-blonde (and all the ‘normal’ ones too).. So I wouldn’t do anything?

    2. How do you like your pancakes? — plain, or with gobs of butter, fruit on top, syrup and/or other toppings?

    When I eat pancakes (maybe once a year) I like Grade B syrup on them.

    3. A Bath & Body Works scent that always triggers fond memories for you?

    I have not been in a B&BW in over a decade. I have no idea how any of their things smell.

    4. I’m so over _________.

    Peplum tops. Ugh.

    5. Do you have any weird rituals/habits you do when you’re in your car (or someone else’s)?

    Shoes off. Feet on the dash. Music required. (doesn’t matter if I am driving or riding, all are necessary.)

  8. Shannon says:

    1. If you could dye your hair any color for exactly one month and then instantly go back to your current hair color without any damage/time spent growing it out, what color would you choose?
    hrrm. I think I’d either go with pastel pink or a red/yellow/orange firey look. Super fun, but nooot really something I’m willing to commit to! 🙂
    2. How do you like your pancakes? — plain, or with gobs of butter, fruit on top, syrup and/or other toppings?
    butter, please! And syrup for dipping. (my dad likes peanut butter… but it gets a little too glue-y for me, bleh.)
    3. A Bath & Body Works scent that always triggers fond memories for you?
    Sweet Pea! I was all about it back in Junior High. Ooh, and Warm Vanilla Sugar. My friend’s mom had that soap in all her bathrooms, and I loooved it. 🙂
    4. I’m so over _________.
    the rigid structures of the work day that I must conform to. I’m a creative! Let me be creative about my time and workflow, oh world! *struggle struggle*
    sigh. the need for me to keep a 9-to-5 day job is the bane of my existence. (sometimes.)
    5. Do you have any weird rituals/habits you do when you’re in your car (or someone else’s)?
    If I’m the passenger, and especially if it’s a long trip, I’ll take off my shoes and sit cross-legged in my seat. I also tend to fall asleep in cars VERY easily. Like 4-month-old kind of easy. I *literally* fell asleep mid-sentence once when I was being driven in a car!
    (In my defense, it was after a very strenuous hike, and I was hella tired. 🙂 but still. I didn’t know I had it in me, lol!)

  9. Trude says:

    1. If you could dye your hair any color for exactly one month and then instantly go back to your current hair color without any damage/time spent growing it out, what color would you choose?
    A deep Christina Henricks red. I used to do that during and for a while after college, but the upkeep is too much! And when I stopped dying it, turned out my natural strawberry blonde had deepened quite a bit (especially since I really don’t go in the sun). Now I get bits of darker red woven into the lower half of my hair but every so often I still get the itch to go full-out red. 🙂

    2. How do you like your pancakes? — plain, or with gobs of butter, fruit on top, syrup and/or other toppings?
    Just a bit of syrup – and none of the sugar-free stuff! Go big or go home!

    3. A Bath & Body Works scent that always triggers fond memories for you?
    I used to wear Sweet Pea, still kinda love it in small doses!

    4. I’m so over _________.
    Sweating the small stuff. I’m more into being as prepared as possible in order to not have as much to stress about.

    5. Do you have any weird rituals/habits you do when you’re in your car (or someone else’s)?
    Not too much, except blasting the good sing-along songs!

  10. Ashley says:

    1. If you could dye your hair any color for exactly one month and then instantly go back to your current hair color without any damage/time spent growing it out, what color would you choose?

    Turquoise. I could never pull it off but I’m in awe of the people who can.

    2. How do you like your pancakes? — plain, or with gobs of butter, fruit on top, syrup and/or other toppings?

    I love chocolate chip pancakes with lots and lots of chocolate chips.

    3. A Bath & Body Works scent that always triggers fond memories for you?

    Cucumber Melon.

    4. I’m so over _________.

    Having anxiety. It takes too much effort and time.

    5. Do you have any weird rituals/habits you do when you’re in your car (or someone else’s)?

    I love taking my flats off as I drive. I have a tendency to leave them there…

    • Karen says:

      Hi Ashley,

      I love chocolate chip pancakes too. Do you end up putting maple syrup on top of them?

      Also, I have bouts where I get super anxious. It comes and goes. I have to work on it, too, and it’s not always easy. I feel for you!

  11. Rachel R. says:

    1. If you could dye your hair any color for exactly one month and then instantly go back to your current hair color without any damage/time spent growing it out, what color would you choose? Cobalt blue or bright purple.

    2. How do you like your pancakes? — plain, or with gobs of butter, fruit on top, syrup and/or other toppings? With blueberries or bananas in them, and butter and warm maple syrup on top.

    3. A Bath & Body Works scent that always triggers fond memories for you? Anything pumpkin reminds me of my son, because he’s always loved pumpkins. Pumpkins themselves, pumpkin foods, pumpkin drinks, pumpkin scents. He started when he was a baby, and is still that way at 19.

    4. I’m so over _________. Trying to please everyone

    5. Do you have any weird rituals/habits you do when you’re in your car (or someone else’s)? Not in the driver’s seat. When I’m a passenger for long car rides, I fall asleep. Not on purpose, but something about car rides cures my insomnia.

  12. Kim says:

    Happy Monday! (Oh my, I just typed Friday instead of Monday – it’s going to be a long week!)

    1. If you could dye your hair any color for exactly one month and then instantly go back to your current hair color without any damage/time spent growing it out, what color would you choose? I’d pick strawberry blonde. In real life I don’t think I could get the right color because I’d pull too much orange (and hate it), but in this fictional scenario, it would be perfect.

    2. How do you like your pancakes? — plain, or with gobs of butter, fruit on top, syrup and/or other toppings? I’m not super pancakey but I like gobs of real butter and FAKE maple syrup. Growing up in real maple syrup country made me crave the thick, sweet fake stuff that we never got.

    3. A Bath & Body Works scent that always triggers fond memories for you? Sugar Plum!
    4. I’m so over _________. Nothing is coming to mind; I guess that’s a good thing!
    5. Do you have any weird rituals/habits you do when you’re in your car (or someone else’s)? Singing out loud to the radio. I can’t help it. Even with virtual strangers, I find myself doing it. And my singing voice is only passable so it’s not like they’re being treated to some fabulous vocal stylings. The boys do it now, too. The Hubs loves road trips. HAHA!

    • Karen says:

      Hi Kim!

      Happy Monday to you too. Oh, I bet you guys have so much fun in the car! I love singing out loud, too. Do you guys have certain CDs that you always play?

      • Kim says:

        We usually listen to my iPhone with a kazillion songs on it. We got a new car a couple of years ago with one of the USB things that connect to the radio (I was actually really excited about that) so I take requests from the back seat. Lately, it’s been A LOT of the Guardians of the Galaxy soundtrack. I don’t complain because I like that the boys appreciate more than the current Top 40. How about you guys? Do you have a road trip soundtrack? Does El Hub grin and bear your signing or does he join in? I’ve been trying to get the Hubs to do the “boy part” of Paradise by the Dashboard Light for about 16 years. No dice. 🙂

  13. Allison C says:

    1. If you could dye your hair any color for exactly one month and then instantly go back to your current hair color without any damage/time spent growing it out, what color would you choose? turquoise
    2. How do you like your pancakes? — plain, or with gobs of butter, fruit on top, syrup and/or other toppings? blueberry pancakes with maple syrup!!
    3. A Bath & Body Works scent that always triggers fond memories for you? none, I’m not a BBW fan
    4. I’m so over cold weather and it hasn’t even started for real.
    5. Do you have any weird rituals/habits you do when you’re in your car (or someone else’s)? ah no. I never thought about that before, lol. Creative question though!

    1. If you could dye your hair any color for exactly one month and then instantly go back to your current hair color without any damage/time spent growing it out, what color would you choose?
    I’ve had purple highlights, but to actually color my whole head a dark purple would be so sick. That would be amazing.

    2. How do you like your pancakes? — plain, or with gobs of butter, fruit on top, syrup and/or other toppings?
    With Nutella smothered on top OR with 100% natural maple syrup drizzled all over it. None of that synthetic crap. Blech.

    3. A Bath & Body Works scent that always triggers fond memories for you?
    I never liked Bath & Body Works scents?

    4. I’m so over _________.
    Ombre hair color!

    5. Do you have any weird rituals/habits you do when you’re in your car (or someone else’s)?
    Fixing the car seat so it’s not reclining. I hate reclining seats; they need to be straight or my back hurts! Oh, I am known for singing.

    • Karen says:

      Hi Kate,

      Well, you’re blowing my mind right now. I’ve never thought to put Nutella on pancakes. Now I know what I’m going to try next! Thank you!

      • Kate & Zena says:

        WHAT?! You’ve never experienced the Nirvana of homemade buttermilk pancakes with Nutella on top?! NEVER??? And you call yourself a Nutella addict? Oh no no no, that is like, like, *paints heaven on earth* It’s godliness.

        Just be a wee careful if you are spreading it on piping hot pancakes. The Nutella can peel off the top of the pancake, but it totally does not affect flavor.

  15. M says:

    1. If you could dye your hair any color for exactly one month and then instantly go back to your current hair color without any damage/time spent growing it out, what color would you choose?

    I think about this a lot, actually! I’ve been rocking my natural color, light brown with lots of subtle red and blonde highlights, for at least five years. I always want to color my hair but get too lazy, nervous, or both to do it. I think my “anything goes” color would be red (natural, not a bright red), but my real-life choice would probably be a dark chocolate brown.

    2. How do you like your pancakes? — plain, or with gobs of butter, fruit on top, syrup and/or other toppings?

    I love pancakes! Every Saturday, I make them from scratch, and it’s always the same recipe, fluffy vegan pancakes with pure maple syrup. But I like just about every fancy addition you can think of, too. I’ve been meaning to try out some other recipes. Maybe now is the time.

    3. A Bath & Body Works scent that always triggers fond memories for you?

    Warm Vanilla Sugar. I’m crazy about vanilla fragrances, and this is pretty close to the long-since-discontinued Vanilla Bean, which was my first-ever BBW product set. I’m unabashedly obsessed with BBW, though. I was a seasonal employee there a few years ago, which made the obsession worse, not better!

    4. I’m so over _________.

    I’ll second super-sculpted brows and add Radiant Orchid-esque lipsticks and glosses. I’m so ready for vampy red fall lips.

    5. Do you have any weird rituals/habits you do when you’re in your car (or someone else’s)?

    I don’t do this all the time, mind you, but I do occasionally eat candy while driving. My dad has been doing this for decades, and my brother and I now joke that it must be hereditary because we catch ourselves doing it as adults. I’ll never forget the time my husband found a paper bag full of candy wrappers in my car, held it up, and asked, “M, what is this?” And I had to admit that I’d been hoarding Halloween candy in the car to snack on while driving. This is my life, guys.

  16. Stephanie Smith says:

    1. If you could dye your hair any color for exactly one month and then instantly go back to your current hair color without any damage/time spent growing it out, what color would you choose? Right now I have the underside of my hair dyed bright blue, so I’d go full blue.
    2. How do you like your pancakes? — plain, or with gobs of butter, fruit on top, syrup and/or other toppings? I like chocolate chips in the pancakes, tons of butter, and just a drizzle of syrup, Mrs. Buttersworth, not authentic maple syrup.
    3. A Bath & Body Works scent that always triggers fond memories for you? None, I’ve never worn any scents from there. They all have a strong alcohol scent to me.
    4. I’m so over _________. Leggings with tall socks and tall boots. Last year when I was dropping my kids off at school, it was the uniform of the Mom. I love the look, but it gets uniformy when everyone is wearing it.
    5. Do you have any weird rituals/habits you do when you’re in your car (or someone else’s)? I have to put my arm on the window opening and I always make sure I know where the door handle is.

  17. Casey says:

    1. If you could dye your hair any color for exactly one month and then instantly go back to your current hair color without any damage/time spent growing it out, what color would you choose? Lavender

    2. How do you like your pancakes? — plain, or with gobs of butter, fruit on top, syrup and/or other toppings? I know this sounds random, but I love preserves on my pancakes…no syrup for me!

    3. A Bath & Body Works scent that always triggers fond memories for you?
    Pearberry, it reminds me of college.

    4. I’m so over _________. People saying “hastag” in conversations. Really?

    5. Do you have any weird rituals/habits you do when you’re in your car (or someone else’s)? I always turn off the radio before I get out of the car.

    • Karen says:

      Hi Casey,

      Re: pancakes. That doesn’t sound weird at all! Sometimes I love mine with butter and strawberry preserves, yum yum.

      I hope that your Monday is off to a great start. Anything exciting happening this week?

  18. Donna N says:

    1. If you could dye your hair any color for exactly one month and then instantly go back to your current hair color without any damage/time spent growing it out, what color would you choose? Funny that you would ask this….I’ve been toying with the idea of doing hair chalking on my dark brown hair—at 46yrs old, my DH thinks I’m too old for this trend, but most of my female friends say to go for it! If I could do one SOLID color, I’d want something VIBRANT, like I922 Electric Purple (MUFE shadow) or Gravity from UD!!

    2. How do you like your pancakes? — plain, or with gobs of butter, fruit on top, syrup and/or other toppings? I like a bit of toppings, but my absolute FAVORITE pancakes on the planet are the Lemon Ricotta Pancakes from The Cheesecake Factory—YUMM!! I could eat them right now, for dinner!!!

    3. A Bath & Body Works scent that always triggers fond memories for you? Hands down–COCONUT LIME VERBENA! It was the bath & body products I used during my honeymoon in Maui/Oahu, so when I smell it now, I’m instantly back in the Islands again!!!

    4. I’m so over _________. The Kardashians!! Why are these people famous again?!?!

    5. Do you have any weird rituals/habits you do when you’re in your car (or someone else’s)? I get really obsessive about the seat position and the temperature settings. I’ve gotten better about it since I haven’t owned a car for the past 3+ years, but since we’re planning to buy one in the next couple of weeks, we’ll see how much I’ve grown on that front

  19. Erin says:

    1. If you could dye your hair any color for exactly one month and then instantly go back to your current hair color without any damage/time spent growing it out, what color would you choose?

    Probably platinum blonde or a pastel shade.

    2. How do you like your pancakes? — plain, or with gobs of butter, fruit on top, syrup and/or other toppings?

    I like real maple and butter. I also like fruit. Just not together.

    3. A Bath & Body Works scent that always triggers fond memories for you?

    I don’t have any good memories or it but Coconut Lime Verbena makes me happy when I smell it.

    4. I’m so over being broke.

    5. Do you have any weird rituals/habits you do when you’re in your car (or someone else’s)?

    Not really but my dog does. At every stop light or stop sign he comes up for a head scratch or kiss.

  20. 1. If you could dye your hair any color for exactly one month and then instantly go back to your current hair color without any damage/time spent growing it out, what color would you choose? The bronde I was aiming for originally when I ended up with goldilocks blonde hair that looked super unnatural.
    2. How do you like your pancakes? — plain, or with gobs of butter, fruit on top, syrup and/or other toppings? Butter & sizzurp!
    3. A Bath & Body Works scent that always triggers fond memories for you? Hmm, none from B&BW but Victoria’s Secret Pear Glace takes me back to 9th and 10th grade!
    4. I’m so over _________. Crop tops.
    5. Do you have any weird rituals/habits you do when you’re in your car (or someone else’s)? I like to crank my music, but it’s always awkward when someone else is riding with me and I’m trying to decide whether they want to chat or belt out Tom Petty + The Heartbreakers hits! Also, I second the barefoot thing while riding with others. Down with foot oppression! 🙂
    Enjoy your week, Karen! ❤

    1. If you could dye your hair any color for exactly one month and then instantly go back to your current hair color without any damage/time spent growing it out, what color would you choose? Purple. Definitely purple. And some blue low lights. In fact, since I have coily/kinky hair, I’m thinking of using some manic panic to make it happen. Non-permanent, of course.

    2. How do you like your pancakes? — plain, or with gobs of butter, fruit on top, syrup and/or other toppings? With strawberries & whip cream on top. And lightly drizzled in strawberry syrup. Totally craving breakfast for dinner now 🙂

    3. A Bath & Body Works scent that always triggers fond memories for you? My favorite B&B scent by far is Warm Brown Sugar. I love to keep this scent in stock

    4. I’m so over the nude lippie that Kylie Jenner supposedly brought back. Really?! Women that I know have been rocking a similar nude for a while bc it’s always flattered WOC

    5. Do you have any weird rituals/habits you do when you’re in your car (or someone else’s)? Shoes off! Even when driving 🙂

    Karen, you and I have very similar coloring.. I’m medium skin with olive undertones and I recently dyed my hair magenta and it’s fading to a pastel pink.. I absolutely LOVE it! My husband hates it because he’s very traditional whereas I’m more of a risk taker and adventurous with new things.. You gotta go pink at least once in your life!!

    Hi Karen!
    Try mixing one RIPE banana (the sweeter, the better) with two eggs and make small pancakes out of this. So yummy!

    1. If you could dye your hair any color for exactly one month and then instantly go back to your current hair color without any damage/time spent growing it out, what color would you choose?

    I have always wanted to dye my hair purple. Can’t decide if it would be bright or a darker shade of purple.

    2. How do you like your pancakes? — plain, or with gobs of butter, fruit on top, syrup and/or other toppings?

    Fresh Fruit or plain.

    3. A Bath & Body Works scent that always triggers fond memories for you?
    That would have to be Sparkling Green Apple, Country Apple and Cucumber Melon.

    The summer heat in Vegas. Bring on the pretty fall makeup and clothing shades !!

    1. If you could dye your hair any color for exactly one month and then instantly go back to your current hair color without any damage/time spent growing it out, what color would you choose?
    I’d like to have red hair for a month, the really really red kind like the girl on Suits.
    2. How do you like your pancakes? — plain, or with gobs of butter, fruit on top, syrup and/or other toppings?
    With lots of butter, Nutella, and syrup. I want to turn it into a cake and eat it for dessert.
    3. A Bath & Body Works scent that always triggers fond memories for you? I don’t have much experience with Bath & Body Works products so they don’t make me nostalgic. The scent that does take me back to my good old carefree college days is CK Be, I used that perfume to death. I still have a bottle that I use every once in a while.
    4. I’m so over _________.
    The no-makeup makeup look. There are still a ton of beauty trends I haven’t had the courage to try and I just want to rock the extremes! I want to learn how to do a winged eyeliner and wear false eyelashes, extend my upper lip line and use bright screaming colors, use crazy emerald green and yellow eyeshadow, with glitter!
    5. Do you have any weird rituals/habits you do when you’re in your car (or someone else’s)?
    When I’m alone in the car I talk to myself, rehearse speeches, and make up conversations with imaginary friends and celebrities, does that count as weird? I think everybody does that 😉

    1. If you could dye your hair any color for exactly one month and then instantly go back to your current hair color without any damage/time spent growing it out, what color would you choose? A warm cinnamon-y brown. It’s not all that far off my natural color, but I’m currently lightened to a golden blonde, and don’t want to give that up long term, but ooh fall has me thinking about dark shades!
    2. How do you like your pancakes? — A single pecan pancake with a buttermilk syrup, and a bit of whip cream.
    3. A Bath & Body Works scent that always triggers fond memories for you? Apple Cinnamon (I think that’s the name) my aunt always bought me that scent for every holiday because she knew my mom didn’t react to it.
    4. I’m so over- nothing is coming to mind!
    5. Do you have any weird rituals/habits you do when you’re in your car (or someone else’s)? Applying lip product of some sort as soon as I get in and right before I get out, in the visor mirror. I almost never put on lipstick until I get in the car, it’s just so easy sitting there with that mirror.

    Hi Karen, try mixing two eggs and 1 ripe banana, and make pancakes out of that. Very good!

    1. If you could dye your hair any color for exactly one month and then instantly go back to your current hair color without any damage/time spent growing it out, what color would you choose?
    I would dye my hair a mint green. I love it but have super super dark hair, so to do that I’d have to bleach the hell out of it, which scares me.

    2. How do you like your pancakes? — plain, or with gobs of butter, fruit on top, syrup and/or other toppings?
    With a little condensed milk, syrup, and some almonds or walnuts!

    3. A Bath & Body Works scent that always triggers fond memories for you?
    My first serious crush! I used to wear the Japanese blossom scent all the time back then, so it takes me back 🙂

    4. I’m so over _________.
    Contouring/highlighting. Looks awesome, but ain’t nobody got time for that.

    5. Do you have any weird rituals/habits you do when you’re in your car (or someone else’s)?
    I always check my teeth for lipstick when I hop in and out of the car, and I always make sure that the volume is on an even setting (OCD). The dial goes up in little pairs of bars, so I always make sure the pairs are complete!

    1. If you could dye your hair any color for exactly one month and then instantly go back to your current hair color without any damage/time spent growing it out, what color would you choose? – White! Like Daenaerys Targaryen white-blonde, but pretty much straight white!! I want to do this so bad, but even if I had all the money in the world for maintenance and touch-ups, my roots come in so so dark that I’d spend way more hours in a salon chair than I could possibly tolerate.
    2. How do you like your pancakes? — plain, or with gobs of butter, fruit on top, syrup and/or other toppings? – Some butter and then syrup! Hot pure maple syrup if possible, but I’ll guzzle pretty much any type of syrup. Also… coffee!
    3. A Bath & Body Works scent that always triggers fond memories for you? – I was so so so obsessed with Cucumber Melon for years and years and years. Was my signature scent in middle and high school (well, me and millions of other teenage girls, haha!) I still have some old bottles of that stuff sitting around- need to toss em!
    4. I’m so over _________. – My hair! There isn’t one trend that’s totally irking me right now, but I am sick to death of my hair. So ready for a change, just haven’t decided what… a fresh cut? A daring color? Both? Raaahhhh!!!
    5. Do you have any weird rituals/habits you do when you’re in your car (or someone else’s)? – Can’t even consider getting going without some music playing, and it has to be the RIGHT music- although that’s just in my car! If someone else has no music playing, I’ll usually ask them if we could have the radio on, or something!
