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.
- Do you like to plan your makeup looks beforehand, or do you just wing it?
A bit of both. When I have a party or something to go to and an outfit already picked out, I’ll usually have an idea for the makeup I want to wear with it, so I’ll do a little planning…
Or if I know that I want to try a new look or take a new palette out for a test run, I’ll plan around doing it on a certain day, and I’ll just have a general idea of my game plan.
But on an average, random weekday when I don’t really have anything going on, I’ll wing it.
- Wide-legged trouser pants: a do or a don’t?
Even though I’ve had skinny jeans practically plastered on my lower half for years now, I think wide-legged pants are super cute, so yeah, I think they’re a do, especially if you have cute shoes that peek out the front.
But the thing is, you’ve gotta have a hem that falls juuuuuuust right; otherwise, it can look a little weird. And yes, I know this from personal experience…
Girl, I could write VOLUMES about all of my fashion faux pas!
- When you text, do you use punctuation?
Most of the time yeah I figure why would you skip it it’s even more confusing if you leave it out and if you’re going to take the time to text someone something you might as well add a few commas and a period or two so the person you’re texting doesn’t have to read the same sentence over and over again until they can understand what you’re trying to say although I do have to admit there are moments when speed trumps clarity like when you’re sending one-liners to your brother or correcting a mistake so I’ll skip a period here and there please don’t tell the grammar police 🙂
- How old were you when you discovered that Santa isn’t real?
Aw, mom! Why you gotta be a party pooper?
My mom told me when I was pretty young. I think I must have been in kindergarten…or maybe it was first grade.
Whenever it was, I was young, but since I was also stubborn, I absolutely refused to accept Mom’s blasphemy, so when she told me, I told her that she was making the whole thing up and that I was still going to believe in Santa anyway. So I wrote him letters and left out a plate of cookies and a glass of milk every Christmas Eve until I was in the fourth grade.
At that point, I guess I accepted it/figured it out…
- What’s a makeup tool in your arsenal that you currently need to replace?
There are a couple currently on Ye Olde Wish List, like a lash curler (the Shu Uemura curler I’ve had for ages finally sailed off into the sunset) and a Beautyblender, because, WAH! — I lost the black one I recently bought. 🙁
I suspect that Tabs had something to do with the disappearance…
Your turn. 🙂 Just copy and paste the following questions into a comment with your answers. I look forward to reading ’em!
1. Do you like to plan your makeup looks beforehand, or do you just wing it?
2. Wide-legged trouser pants: a do or a don’t?
3. When you text, do you use punctuation?
4. How old were you when you discovered that Santa isn’t real?
5. What’s a makeup tool in your arsenal that you currently need to replace?
Great Caesar’s ghost, I can’t even believe it’s December 14th already! I still have so much Christmas-sy stuff to do, but I’ve been hella distracted lately.
I just have to keep reminding myself to take one step at a time (baby steps!). I’m in one of those phases where the sheer size of my to-do list is completely overwhelming me. When I get like this, I basically have to accept that there’s no way I’m gonna finish everything, but that sort of frees me to focus on one task at a time.
Hopefully. LOL! We’ll see how it goes.
You have a great day today, my friend. I hope to see you in the comments.
Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,
