HomeFashionBeautyMakeup and Beauty Blog Monday Poll, Vol. 489

Makeup and Beauty Blog Monday Poll, Vol. 489 always makes me feel like I can conquer the world! ?

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. Describe your outfit!

Girl, OK. I feel like I’m on repeating Groundhog Day loop, because right now I’m in stinky, sweaty post-workout clothes…and it feels like I am ALWAYS in stinky, sweaty post-workout clothes, LOL!

This could be due to the fact that I just finished a short run on the treadmill. Before I sit down to write, especially in the mornings, I like to get my wiggles out, and the easiest way to do that is with a quick HIIT class on YouTube or a mile or two on the treadmill.

Sweating also helps me wake up and clears my head…

Anyway! That was my long-winded way of saying that I’m all Senita’d out today. Thank you, Abbey in the comments, for introducing me to the line. Their clothes are SO cute and affordable. I’m wearing the Sarah Bra in the Bahamas Print, the matching Bahamas Swift Shorts and the black Boyfriend Tank.

2. Do you know who you are?

WOW! — that’s a serious question for a Monday eclipse morning, but yes, I feel like I know who I am. But I also feel like I’m still growing and changing as a person.

I know the girl deep, down inside, and I love her, but sometimes she drives me crazy!

3. How long did it take you to truly figure out who you are?

I don’t think we’re ever done fully figuring ourselves out, because life and the things that happen along the way change things, but for me, really, I started to feel like I was finally becoming the person I was meant to be in my late 30s, so it took a while.

I admire those people who know themselves from the get-go. El Hub is like that. But it wasn’t that way for me. I’ve changed so much over the years, which reminds me — I’m so thankful that I didn’t grow up in the era of social media and online personas, because social media can be a perception trap.

I dunno… What are your thoughts on this?

4. What do you do when you don’t know what to do about something?

I freakin’ stall! Seriously, I stall as long as I can, and I use the time to calm down and clear my head.

When I react to something right away, I’m more likely to make unwise decisions… It took me a long time to figure that one out. Anyway, I stall for as long as I can, and in that process I take several deep breaths. If I have the time, I’ll also call El Hub and my parents, or one of my friends, and ask for advice.

5. Should you stay or should you go now?

So, of course I have to sing that song now. ? “Should I stay or should I go now?”

While I think there’s value in sitting still, you should just GO! Go out and see the world. See everything.

I gotta get out of these clothes now, man! Although I do have to say that they dry pretty quickly. The sweat just wicks away into the ether.

Before I jump in the shower, can I just say that I think you’re great? ? YOU ARE GREAT!

Be careful watching the eclipse today. Have a wonderful week.

Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,
