Makeup and Beauty Blog Monday Poll, Vol. 654

hello monday november 30 2020
It’s a good day!

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. Best thing about my day so far: ________.

    Frankly, the best thing about my day so far has been the coffee! I bought a bag of Trader Joe’s Light Roast coffee for the first time in ages and forgot how good it is.

    Mmm… It’s mellow, very little bite, which is perfect for me because I’m a coffee wimp. I don’t need to be challenged by my morning beverages, but I digress… I’m drinking it with a splash of half and half, and it’s absolutely delightful. 😋

    2. Pick one — I [LOVE/LOATHE] surprises.

    LOVE

    3. In my spare time, I ________.

    …wonder why I don’t have more spare time. LOL!

    4. I’m very picky about ________.

    …eye makeup brushes, Thanksgiving side dishes (I can’t do stuffing or mashed potatoes out of a box, or gelatinous cranberry sauce out of a can), liquid foundation, oranges, underwear, socks, jeans, dental floss, pasta, hair ties, face lotion and writing utensils.

    Seriously, this could go on FOR DAYS.

    5. I’m not picky about ________.

    …plastic sandwich bags, dryer sheets and canned beans.

    6. The first three places I’d like to visit when all of this is over are ________.

    1) My mom and dad’s house
    2) Kauai
    3) The Rotunda at Neiman Marcus in San Francisco for high tea (it’s temporarily closed, so hopefully they will eventually open up again)

    7. Baggy sweat pants or the Reeboks with the straps?

    Baggy sweat pants!

    8. My current hair essentials include ________.

    …scrunchies and anything by Odele!

    9. My current makeup essentials include ________.

    …ALL OF TEH EYE PRODUCTS, but especially brow pencil and mascara.

    Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,
