The Makeup and Beauty Blog Monday Poll: July 28, 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.
- What’s one thing about yourself that a lot of people don’t know?
My favorite roller coaster is the Demon at Great America, and whenever we’d go, I’d ride it over and over and over, like, 10 times every trip.
- Have you ever been in a commercial, or know someone who’s been in a commercial?
Oh, wait! — I change my answer. In elementary school, one of my classmates played a “hip skateboard kid” in a Sony Walkman commercial, I think, and all the kids thought he was so cool because he was on TV.
- Do you ever use those roll-on fragrance thing-a-ma-bobbers?
Ya know, I pick one up on occasion from Sephora or Nordstrom because I think they’re really cute and convenient, but I never end up actually using them. They just sit in a drawer all sad and neglected…
I guess I prefer my perfumes in regular ol’ bottles.
And then when I go on trips, I usually bring those little fragrance samples you get for free at a counter, because they’re so tiny and don’t take up much room in my fragrance/lotion/miscellaneous beauty product Ziploc bag.
- Great things come from ____.
…getting a good night’s sleep. LOL! Or, alternately, pushing yourself out of your comfort zone.
- Doughnuts or croissants?
I feel that being forced to choose between the two constitutes cruel and unusual punishment.
But, if I were literally forced to choose, I’d choose doughnuts.
More variety, ya know? Cake, glazed, jelly, chocolate…
Your turn. Just copy and paste the following questions into a comment with your answers. I look forward to reading ‘em!
1. What’s one thing about yourself that a lot of people don’t know?
2. Have you ever been in a commercial, or know someone who’s been in a commercial?
3. Do you ever use those roll-on fragrance thing-a-ma-bobbers?
4. Great things come from ____.
5. Doughnuts or croissants?
In productivity news (OK, not really), how do you feel about overthinking things — you know, where you’re thinking about something, like an important date on the calendar, or something you have to do for some reason, and you just keep thinking about it and thinking about it, and because you’re thinking about it so much, nothing ever really gets done?
Yeah, I do that sometimes…
Here’s an interesting article on the subject: How to Stop Overthinking Everything and Find Peace of Mind.
I like the “stop talking about it” idea. I can see that helping because, you know, the power of internal dialogues. Like, when I say that something is a problem for me, and I say it over and over and over, I think it sort of reinforces the problem.
Sometimes, it’s good to just change the convo, you know, even when it’s with yourself.
Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,
P.S. Have a wonderful week, babe. I hope it’s a good one for you.
