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.
- Did you get any beauty loot for the holidays this year?
Nope, not this year because Baby Girl got most of the gifts, which is exactly what I wanted for Christmas.
I did get a Nordstrom gift card from El Hub (YAY!), which isn’t technically beauty related, but I’m gonna use part of it at the Chanel counter because I just finished my stick of 88 Noir Intense Eyeliner, and I’m lost without it…
- What are three things you do every morning without fail?
I am NOT a morning person, so everything I do is pretty much dedicated to the pursuit of waking my @ss up, LOL! After 1) splashing some water on my face and 2) cleansing it, I amble/zombie shuffle downstairs to the kitchen to make something 3) to eat and drink, which, these days, is usually a piece of multigrain toast with peanut butter and a cup of decaf green tea.
I always wake up RAVENOUS… I’m basically an angry bear until I put something in my tum.
- How do you feel about wearing white liner on the water line?
I like it, but I haven’t been doing it lately because I’m too lazy.
But when I do bother to do it, I think it definitely makes my eyes look bigger, which is always a good thing IMO.
- What’s something that helps you concentrate?
Well, coffee, for sure. A cup or two and I’m focused like a laser! Unfortunately, I haven’t had any real coffee since Baby Girl set up shop in my tum…
Also, silence helps too. When I have to do any heavy mental lifting, I can’t have the radio playing or other people chatting around me in the room (unless that can’t be helped).
- Mascara or false lashes?
Mascara, homie! Gimme a great mascara — one that lifts, curls and adds mega-volume — any day of the week.
False lashes are fun and fab, especially for special occasions, and I think they look great in pics. I also think that I have the application mostly down to a science, but I prefer mascara for everyday makeup. They’re more natural looking, and I’m really into the natural look these days.
Your turn. 🙂 Just copy and paste the following questions into a comment with your answers. I look forward to reading ’em!

Wow, this is the last Monday of 2016… Can you believe it? Let’s make it a good one, OK?
Are you working this week? I’ll be around, purr usual, through Thursday or so, but then I’m taking one or two days off for the new year (if, of course, Tabs is OK with that).
