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 have a favorite mug?
Yup, I’m drinking from it right meow. I’ve had it since the ’90s, and I swear — if El Hub ever breaks this mug, there will be HELL to pay.
It’s huge and beige with wine-colored painted stripes and some mint green touches, and I can barely wrap my hand around it. My mom got it for me (I think it was from Costco).
- Can you concentrate with music playing in the background?
Well…actually, I take that back. It depends on the task. If it’s something where I have to be very mindful of my time, or something that requires a lot of creativity or heavy mental lifting, then no. No music. None.
Or, if I’m lost. Like, if I’m driving someplace and I’m lost, I’m that one annoying person who says, “Shh! Shut it down!” and I’ll turn off the radio.
But if I’m doing something involving numbers or math, like, if I’m balancing my checkbook or paying bills, then I’m fine with background music.
- Do you like scented powder products, and if you do, what’s your favorite one?
Girl, I die over Guerlain Terracotta bronzer every single time I open the compact.
It doesn’t matter if it’s freezing cold and I’m feeling frumpy in my office, suddenly it’s like I’m wearing a designer bikini and hanging out at a five-star resort.
I love that tropical, beachy gardenia, tiare flower smell…
- Are you a hot pink lipstick kinda girl/guy?
Well, hello! — yes. 🙂 I haven’t always been though. Before I started the blog, I would have never even thought to go there, but now it’s like, “Oh, it’s Tuesday morning? Let’s put on a hot pink matte lip and walk around the block…”
- How’s your hair today?
Freshly washed but in need of styling, and it’s currently up in a messy bun.
I know, BIG surprise.
I think I’m gonna do some loose curls in a little while…
Your turn. 🙂 Just copy and paste the following questions into a comment with your answers. I look forward to reading ’em!

Good morning, glory, and happy Monday! How’s it going today so far? I’m still on a post-weekend high out here… The baby shower on Saturday was so much fun! I hadn’t seen some of the people who made it there in so many years, and it was really nice. I even cheated a little on my diet and had a piece of sugary cake. Of course it was ridiculously delicious, as is often the case when you have something that you aren’t allowed to have/haven’t had in a long time… Man, why is that?
How’s everything out yonder way? What are you up to this week?
Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,
