Makeup and Beauty Blog Monday Poll, Vol. 562

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. Glittery brows or purple lipstick?

Glittery brows! They’re surprisingly fun.

2. What’s something makeup-related that you have in your purse/bag at the moment?

Thankfully, I cleaned out my purse before we left for Hawaii because I’ve been walking around with five pounds of lipstick on me, ha ha! One thing that made the cut was a twist-up tube of Nuxe Reve de Miel Lip Balm, which was a gift from a friend (thanks, Kim!).

3. Do you like having background noise when you need to really concentrate?

It depends on what’s happening around me. Like, if it’s the crack of dawn at 5 in the morning, and the house is quiet, then no, I don’t need anything. Silence is golden! But if there’s activity in the house, and it’s noisy (like if my parents are visiting, or if Connor’s playing with El Hub in the living room), then I’ll have to turn something to drown out conversations; otherwise, I can’t think. In that case, I either turn on a background YouTube video or use our white noise machine.

4. A ’90s sitcom you used to watch?

The original Beverly Hills 90210 was a fave (“Donna Martin graduates!”). I also loved Melrose Place.

5. What about eyeliner is difficult for you?

Getting the wings of my winged liner even is a challenge, because I always want to pull the right wing up higher than the left.

Aloha!

Aloha from the other side of the Pacific. I hope all is well. Currently, I have sand between my toes and in various other crevasses, LOL. TMI? Probably. But that’s beach life. 🙂

My friends here all told me it would be cold, and I packed exactly one sweatshirt. Haven’t had to use it yet because, uh…yeah, not cold really. But you know how it is with weather. It’s relative. People always think it’s too cold or hot wherever they are.

It’s been a chill trip so far. Connor has gotten to hang out with both sets of her grandparents, and I’ve done some relaxing at the beach. Papaya in the mornings, coffee, sleeping in… Ah… My low-carb life has flitted out the window for now, though. You try eating low-carb with Filipinos in Hawaii. #missionimpossible.

Mmm, chocolate haupia pie…

Holy smokes! Those are some expensive strawberries. Clutch my pearls!

Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,

Karen
