Makeup and Beauty Blog Monday Poll, Vol. 818

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 more or less random questions I’ve been posting on this blog every Monday morning for the past quadrillion years (since 2007).

1. Violet blush or violet lip gloss?

Violet lip gloss! I think it’s surprisingly flattering.

2. Something beauty-related that makes you nostalgic?

The scents of the ‘80s and ‘90s that you could find at the drugstore, like Jean Nate and Revlon Charlie. My mom was a no-frills kind of person and even things like drugstore perfume seemed glamorous to me.

3. Fastest car you’ve ever driven?

Honestly, I don’t even know. I’m not a car person at all, and I drive like a grandma. LOL!

4. An eyeshadow palette or quad that you want?

There’s a new Chanel one that I would love to add to my collection, Les 4 Ombres Eclat De Nuit. It has beige, khaki, brown and taupe, aka all the colors that make me weak in the knees.

5. If you could go anywhere for a picnic today, where would you go?

I’d go to Marin French Cheese with Connor and El Hub on a warm, sunny day. I’d bring a fresh baguette, brie, sliced apples, a tray of snacky veggies, a couple dips, bubbly water and cold juice. Maybe a bottle of wine if we planned to be there for a while. We’d hang out by the pond, read, watch birds and look at clouds. It would be nice to be outside for a few hours without any hurry to be anywhere.

Have a gorgeous Monday, my sweet friend. The storm that poured buckets over our little town seems to have subsided. Whew! When we were driving Connor to and from dance yesterday, we saw many of the creeks in our neighborhood at full capacity and close overflowing. It’s been a crazy, wet weekend.

Hopefully things will stay dry today. Anywho, I hope you have a wonderful Monday and that it sets the tone for a great week ahead.

Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,

Karen
