Makeup and Beauty Blog Monday Poll, Vol. 436

Published in: Just For Fun

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 NINE (!) 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. Whom would you like to kiss at this very second?
    I’d like to give my mom a kiss on the cheek and a big hug, too, while I’m at it.
  2. What blush do you have in your makeup bag?
    MAC Gingerly, which I put in my bag before I left for the hospital when Connor was born, and it’s been in there ever since. It’s a natural-looking matte peachy brown, and whenever I wear it, I feel like I look like I’ve been prancing through a field with some deer and sh*t.

    It’s my mission in life to not look like I have two painted little circles on the apples of my cheeks…although I’m not always successful at that, LOL!

    Yes, I have gone outside looking ridiculous, I admit it.

  3. What are you smelling right now?
    The best scent in the whole entire world: baby hair. I’m baby greedy, and I’m not ashamed to admit it.
  4. Are you looking forward to the new Gilmore Girls episodes?
    Hell, yeah! I’m about to put it on the calendar today, and I don’t think it comes out till November.

    I even plan to get a bottle of wine from TJ’s that I’ll crack open on that very special occasion.

  5. Can you do a push-up or a pull-up?
    Once upon a time, I could do both.

    Not at the same time, mind you, because this is not American Ninja Warrior or anything, and I’m not about to go up the salmon ladder…but I did have decent upper body strength at one time.

What’s up, my friend? Monday morning! I feel like doughnuts…and croissants…and cake.

Remember the way you used to feel when you and your friends would nail your homemade choreography to the Spice Girls? — like you’d just conquered the freakin’ planet? I hope this week feels like that for you. πŸ™‚

If this was old-school, I’d leave you a note in your locker to tell you to “Have a good week!”

Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,

Karen

    4. I have never watched Gilmore Girls, I don’t watch much T.V. lately anyway, usually CNN and some Sports.

  11. Suzanne C says:

    Connor Claire looks like she’s staging an intervention: “Mom, we need to talk about your blush usage”.

    1. Whom would you like to kiss at this very second?
    My 10 year old niece. She had to miss her brother’s law enforcement school graduation today. I’m hoping she didn’t cry at school- that would’ve embarassed her so much.

    2. What blush do you have in your makeup bag?
    Nars Orgasm. Tacky name, fabulous blush.

    3. What are you smelling right now?
    That weird taste/smell antibiotics have. I was just taking one for a sinus infection.

    4. Are you looking forward to the new Gilmore Girls episodes?
    So. Darn. Much. Mom and I have Thanksgiving Saturday set aside for watching together. There will be takeout and wine involved. I’m trying to think up a GG-watching bingo card to surprise her with.

    5. Can you do a push-up or a pull-up?
    Bahahahahaha! No.

  12. Amy says:

    Kiss: Hubs. No contest.

    Blush: Nada. In my makeup drawer in the bathroom, my fave these days is a peach gel that’s super summery, but I forget the brand!

    Smell: The sweet smell of dog breath. πŸ˜‰ I’m in the car and my pooch likes putting his head on my shoulder from the back seat and drooling, etc. Good thing he’s so darn cute. πŸ™‚

    TV show: Hardly know what it is!?

    Arm ups: Not very effectively. πŸ™‚

    Adorbs pic of you and the little lady!! Super sweet. Thanks for sharing!!

  13. Erin says:

    1. Whom would you like to kiss at this very second?

    That’s a three way tie between my pets and my hubby. Though probably my hubby since he’s very far away!

    2. What blush do you have in your makeup bag?

    Right now the only one in a bag is the Clinique Cheek Pop in Berry.

    3. What are you smelling right now?

    Clean sheets , a scented candle on my bedside, and a bit of pup smell. Though he doesn’t smell like other dogs. He smells like a combo of trees and greens. Which is good since he doesn’t like bathtime!

    4. Are you looking forward to the new Gilmore Girls episodes?

    You know I only saw the first few episodes of the show so I’d need to watch the rest to know how I feel.

    5. Can you do a push-up or a pull-up?

    I can do a pushup but I can’t do an unassisted pull up.

    1. Whom would you like to kiss at this very second?
    My hubby! I don’t always appreciate how patient and supportive he is!

    2. What blush do you have in your makeup bag?
    Does bronzer count? I have a Guerlain Terracotta that I bought a couple months ago, I’ve been wearing it a lot this summer!

    3. What are you smelling right now?
    My earl grey tea. I could swim in early grey tea. I want to be buried in earl grey tea.

    4. Are you looking forward to the new Gilmore Girls episodes?
    Nope, never watched that show!

    5. Can you do a push-up or a pull-up?
    Neither. I’ve been building my upper body strength since I started yoga about 5 years ago, but I started from far enough that I still can’t do a push-up. At least I can do it on my knees now!

    Hope you have a great week Karen! Scratch Connor Claire’s head and give a kiss to Tabs for me. Or wait, vice versa!
