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.
- What’s the first thing you do at the sink every morning?
I wash my hands…because the very first thing I do when I get up is use the loo, LOL!
Oh, did I tell you yet that I found the absolute best hand soap?? Yeah, it’s the Foaming Hand Soap by Michel Design Works, and my mother-in-law got me hooked on their stuff a while ago.
They come in a great selection of interesting scents like Green Meadow and Hyacinth Iris, and they’re SUPER foamy. They also don’t make the skin on my hands dry.
I’ve seen them on Amazon for about $10, but I get mine at Marshalls for $5.99. When I see them in the beauty section I stock up.
No joke, last time I bought, like, six of them in one fell swoop. A lady standing next to me in line asked if they were any good, and I was like, “Honey! Let me tell you about these soaps…” and I talked her ear off.
- A type of junk food you’ll do almost anything to keep from having to give up?
There is absolutely no way I’ll ever give up ice cream…without a fight, because a world without ice cream would be like a world without kittens.
It would be a very sad and depressing place. 🙁
- Just generally speaking, what kind of beauty products do you like?
Um…all of them? But seriously, I like products that make my life easier somehow, whether that’s a no-brainer lipstick that I know will go with every eye and cheek color under the sun, or a tool or accessory that saves me time when I’m getting ready.
I also like products that make me feel like I’m indulging myself or being pampered, even if it’s just an otherwise ordinary day, like perfumes, body lotions, face masks or scrubs.
Oh, and products that help me look less tired are primo! Really, I could talk about that forever…
- Fill in the blanks: “If you want _____ you have to _____.”
If you want to succeed you have to work your @ss off. If you want cats you have to carry cat treats (not really, but they help). If you want pizza you have to call me because I want some too. 🙂
- What’s the best sweat-proof makeup?
I have to go with good ol’ MAC Blot.
- Do you have a lucky charm?
Does my cat count?
Your turn. 🙂 Just copy and paste the following questions into a comment with your answers. I look forward to reading ’em!

OK…how is it Monday already? And the end of August? Wow, how’d that happen?
Rise and shine, babe! How was your weekend? Mine was busy but good. I was finishing up that secret squirrel project (which reminds me, guess what) so I didn’t really do anything, but that gives me an excuse to treat myself to Starbucks this morning (hello, pink drink!).
How are you doing? I hope there’s a smile on your face. 🙂 You’re gonna have a great week, BTW. I just know it.
Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,
