Makeup and Beauty Blog Monday Poll, Vol. 645

good vibes only mug
Yes, please!

So…what is the Monday Poll?

Excellent question! It isn’t, contrary to its name, an actual poll, like with little clicky buttons. It’s just a list of five more or less random questions I’ve been posting on this blog every Monday morning for the past quadrillion years (since 2007). I love reading your answers, and it helps me get my week off to a good start. 🌻

    1. Dark chocolate, milk chocolate or white chocolate?

    Dark chocolate tastes like punishment to me…and white chocolate doesn’t really taste like much at all, so I’ll take some really good milk chocolate for the win, please! See’s preferably! 🍫😁

    2. Would you like winged liner with a matte finish, or a shiny finish today?

    I’ll go for shiny today. ✨

    3. Something you’re putting off at the moment?

    Cleaning my bathroom… I’ve got to do it soon (hopefully this week) because it’s on the brink of true grossness! Not quite full-on disgusting yet, but it’s getting there.

    4. A weird beauty-related pet peeve of yours?

    I absolutely cannot stand when my hair smells like barbecue. YUCK! Also, when my toenails or fingernails are even just a tad too long, I’m basically non-functional. I can’t think about anything other than cutting my nails when they get like that, and I’ll obsess over it until it’s done.

    5. Who’s your dream travel partner?

    Besides Keanu Reeves? El Hub, I guess. LOL! He’s very detail oriented, so I know that even if I’m completely out of it (like if it’s 3 a.m.
    and I’m delirious from lack of sleep), and there’s a train or a connecting flight we absolutely cannot miss, I know we’ll get to where we need to go with all the paperwork and everything ready to go.

    Plus, homeboy’s pretty funny. He’s always available for a hug if I need one and is always up for an adventure… And I’m also going to have to include my childhood friends Jen and Cindy, who I still hang out with. I’ve traveled extensively with them over the years, and we haven’t killed each other yet, haha! They’re both super easygoing, which is yin to my yang.

    6. Who’s always on your playlist?

    Honestly, these days it’s always one of the Disney princesses, hahaha! Connor loves Disney movies and music, so I like to have Disney princess tunes available to play at a moment’s notice in case she feels the need to bust out into song.

    7. What’s something you learned about makeup in the last few years that really surprised you?

    That brown eyeliner is your BFF!

    8. What does your afternoon look like today?

    Got a few errands to run and a couple things to write, but otherwise not terribly busy if I’m mindful of the time and stay on task.

    9. What’s the name you put on your Starbucks order?

    I use ‘Karen’ most of the time, but there are those rare days when I can’t deal with someone writing ‘Kelvin’ or ‘Kerran’ or ‘Kiera,’ so I end up giving my nickname, which is Kate.

    Nobody seems to mess up Kate for some reason!

    Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,

    Karen
