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.
- If there’s one thing I can do in this life, it’s __________
…befriend stray cats.
They can sense the cat lady-ness radiating off me in waves… Either that, or they smell the treats in my pocket, haha!
Also, I’m like a shoe-shopping savant. I’m the girl to call when you want/need a shoe enabler.
- What product in your makeup bag/toolkit do you wear more than any other?
Over the past few months, it’s been Laura Mercier Flawless Fluide Foundation, but more immediately, over the past few weeks, the Hourglass Ambient Blush palette, and the past few days, NARS Pure Radiant Concealer.
- How has your life changed this year?
Definitely for the better with my daily working workflow, thanks to a couple of tweaks.
I used to start my days at the behind-crack of dawn and have my butt glued to my computer for, literally, 12-14 hours, often without breaks.
Now, I force myself, hook or crook, to get out of my chair by 4 p.m. (and I usually start working at 7:30 a.m.)
Sometimes it’s hard. Very hard. Because I don’t nave a naturally super fine-tuned concept of time (read: I’m always running late), and I’m the kind of person who always like to do a little extra, sneak in a little extra something into her work.
But now I’m a much happier person overall, so I guess that would be the biggest change for me this year.
- One of your greatest indulgences?
Ooh… Sleeping in on Saturday mornings and just waking up when my body feels like it, instead of waking up with an alarm, and then just having a leisurely day.
I like to prep the Saturday morning giveaway over coffee (as you know), and either watch some (hopefully brainless) TV or read and nom on something that, ideally, I didn’t have to make, like a croissant from a local bakery.
- What beauty products are on your nightstand right now?
A tube of Hourglass No. 28 Lip Oil, which I put on every night before bed.
And a big bottle of Amlactin lotion, which I got at Costco.
Your turn. Just copy and paste the following questions into a comment with your answers. I look forward to reading ‘em!

Happy Monday to ya, sweetpea. How was your weekend?
Mine was nice. El Hub and I drove up to Redding to visit his parents and see their new house, while Tabs held down Fort MBB with his favorite sergeant/petsitter.
Just a laid back weekend, really, but I’m a BIG fan of those.
