Makeup and Beauty Blog Monday Poll, Vol. 574

Today is a good day to have 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. Bath or shower?

    I take showers our of sheer necessity because they’re so much quicker than long, luxurious (heavenly) baths, but if I were a lady of leisure, and perhaps also had a gloriously deep old-fashioned clawfoot tub, I’d be taking baths all day, every day, for sure.

    With lots of bubbles… Can never have too many bubbles. And music!

    2. A skin care step you won’t skip?

    Removing my makeup every night before bed. I never skip it, even when I was shaking my groove thang and going out a lot back in the day and came home at an obnoxious hour (by which time I’m usually in my fourth or fifth REM cycle now), I would always take off my makeup.

    I used to keep makeup remover wipes on my nightstand next to my bed so I could just collapse onto my comforter, start wiping my makeup away while I was horizontal, and then drift off to sleep right then and there…

    3. What’s the last product you finished?

    Body cream. I go through A LOT of that stuff. This time it was H2O Plus Coconut Lemon Verbena (smells tropical but not “sun-screeny”).

    4. What’s the last dance you learned?

    Um…that one that all the kids are doing, or may have been doing a few years ago? I think it’s called the floss?

    It’s the one where you stand with your feet shoulder length apart and rock your arms back and forth (or something).

    Previous to that, I also learned a six-step because I was learning how to break dance, but this was a while ago…

    5. Your first beauty product obsession?

    It was back in high school: Revlon Toast of New York lipstick!

    All the girls wore it. (In case you’re wondering, yes, it’s still around.)

The thing I love most about cats

That you can never quite tell whether they’re about to swat you in the face, or give you a head boop.

They’ve got that whole mystery thing down pat! Even after all these years of assisting Tabs, I still can’t predict when he’s going to go full-on Naomi Campbell and throw a phone at me, or if he’s going to nuzzle me with purrs and lovies.

It’s one of his many talents…

He 🐱 and I want to remind you to make the most of this beautiful Monday. And in case you haven’t heard it yet today, you are 🌺 cherished, and you are loved. ❤️

Your friendly neighborhood beauty addicts,

Karen and Tabs
