Makeup and Beauty Blog Monday Poll, Vol. 481It’s feeling like a Chanel day

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 10 (!) 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. Are you a cool girl?

Most certainly not!

2. What’s the most you’ve ever spent on a hair styling tool?

I threw down 200 bucks on a T3 back in the day. It was around the time they first came out, and I was blow-drying my hair almost daily at the time. That thing dramatically cut down on the time I spent in the bathroom.

It’s been about a decade since I bought it, and it’s still going strong. It was a good value.

3. How well do you think you could pull off red hair?

Pretty well, I think! I did bright Kool-Aid red streaks a few times years ago, and it was fun. It was hard to keep up with, though, because the color basically wanted to drain outta my hair every time I washed it.

4. You have a pimple on your face. Do you pop it or leave it alone?

I leave it alone as long as I can. Then, when it’s ripe, I secretly pop it in the bathroom in the middle of the night…

5. If you had to choose someone to cut your hair in complete darkness, who would you choose?

My friend Alis, of course. It would be terrifying, but if anyone could pull it off, it would be her.

6. Would you rather be on The Bachelor or in The Hunger Games?

Sh*t. I think I’d have a better chance of surviving The Hunger Games, to be honest.

7. It’s 1997. What’s in your little black backpack?

My UC Davis student ID (which also doubled as my bus pass), the keys to the apartment I shared with roommates who I never talked to again after graduation, a bottle of Estée Lauder Pleasures perfume, a tube of MAC Paramount Lipstick, my CD player (complete with Missy Elliott CD), my wallet (which probably had paycheck stubs from the three jobs I held simultaneously at the time — foreign language teaching assistant, on-campus receptionist, human guinea pig for psychology experiments) and a mint green Sakura Gelly Roll Pen.

You know what my mantra has been lately? For every problem, there’s always a solution. Remember that you can handle whatever comes your way!

Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,

Karen
