Makeup and Beauty Blog Monday Poll, Vol. 511

So…what is the Monday Poll?

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 11 (!) 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.

1. Pick one: microbladed brows or lash extensions?

Lash extensions, for sure, and I’d go with the most conservative option available. Nothing too long or voluminous, so, basically, the most natural-looking option.

I’ve never had lash extensions done, but I know that when I wear falsies, I get headaches when the lashes feel too heavy (I also hate when I can see the lashes out of the corner of my eye), so I couldn’t deal with cray-cray long or curly extensions.

2. How would you do if you tried to paint your nails with 100 layers of nail polish?

I’d give it an earnest try and would probably get through four or five layers before quitting to go eat some string cheese instead!

3. Speaking of nail polish, what are you wearing on your nails?

Smith & Cult Dark Like Me on my fingers and Kulandini Hustle on my toes.

Oh! — back to #2 for a sec. I’m also 100% sure that one of the little animals I live with would need something at some point during the 100-layer challenge, and I’d have to stop early anyway. Tabs would demand a slice of turkey or cheek scritches, or Connor would need someone to share a pretend slice of blueberry cake with.

You know, the usual!

4. Think back to your early 20s… Where would you have normally been on a Friday night?

Chances are I would have been doing antiquated things that kids today will never experience, like wandering around a Tower Records for CDs (and only buying something once in a blue moon!), or searching for a movie to rent at Blockbuster.

Once in a while, I’d go clubbing in SF with a friend.

5. Biscotti or scones?

Biscotti, ideally with a ☕ latte.

Scones do nothing for me… Too dry.

Happy Monday

If you’re having a case of the Mondays right now, so am I, friend. 🙁 It’s been one of those “I feel overwhelmed” days so far, but I’ll do my best, and I hope you do, too.

In other news, guess who got a wreath at HomeGoods yesterday. Yup, that was the highlight of my Sunday… It’s a springy green wreath with what I believe are dried eucalyptus leaves on it, and I like that it doesn’t look fake or plastic.

Sigh… I wish I could just live in HomeGoods today. Doesn’t that sound like a nice little vacation? LOL.

Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,
