Monday Questionnaire!

I am an avid reader of Makeup and Beauty Blog, a fantastic beauty blog by the lovely Karen, that you should all check out if you haven't already! She is always doing these fun weekly polls, which consist of a set of questions that she answers, and then asks readers to answer in the comments. Instead of answering the questions in her comments, I thought I would answer them on my blog for all of you!

I really like the idea of weekly random questions/lists... I'm trying to think up a way I could do that for this blog. Ideas? Suggestions?

On to the poll! (Click here to read Karen's original poll post for this week)

1. Mood:
Stressed. A little anxious. It's coming to that point in the semester where the workload is starting to pile on and I have a lot of things to balance on my plate. Additionally, there are a few things on my "to-do" list this week that have me a little nervous. I'm crossing my fingers that all goes well.

2. Did you look as stylish as these Gap kids when you were a kid?
This refers to a photo Karen put in her original post (linked above). And no, I was nowhere near as stylish as those Gap kids. My outfit at that age consisted of bright purple stirrup leggings and a multicolor striped t-shirt.

3. Do you feel your workplace is well organized right now?
I do in fact! I have recently made it a rule for myself that I must spend 5 minutes every night cleaning/tidying up before I go to bed. In theory, this should make my room spotless all the time, because I shouldn't be doing more than 5 minutes worth of room destruction per day. So far, it's working!

4. What’s one of your simplest pleasures?
Hallmark Channel original movies :)

5. Would you spend $125 on the NARS Bento Box?
Well right now I'm on a Project X Pan, which means I wouldn't spend $1 on that box, but even if I wasn't Project Panning at the moment, I still don't think it's worth $125. I'm just not that big of a lipstick girl. Maybe, MAYBE, if it was really cool eyeshadows. (Click here to check out the box if you haven't seen it already!)

6. Cold season’s coming. Do you have any tips/tricks to stay healthy?
Exercise and eat right! I swear that fends off illness better than anything. And obviously, wash your hands and don't makeout with everyone and their mom. But that's a given, right?

7. Are you loving any accessories at the moment?

My Charlotte Russe bangle/pearl bracelet set. It's the perfect feminine touch to virtually any outfit!
8. Do you make snap decisions, or do you always think things through?
I usually think things through. I hate the feeling of regretting a decision, you know?

9. Today’s outfit?
Forever 21 skinny jeans, American Apparel Tri-Indigo Deep V-Neck Tee, flip flops.

10. Weekly goals:
Go to all of my classes (this hasn't happened for a while now)! Film several videos, including a vlog video. Keep dragging myself to the gym before class in the morning, Hollaween is only 2 weeks away... no time for slacking in the physical department right now!

That's all of the questions! Feel free to answers these in a comment below or over on Karen's blog. And if you have any ideas for a way to have my own weekly questionnaire on this blog, let me know!

xx, Allison

  1. Hi Allison! Questionnaires are fun! Here I go!
    1. Mood: Very, very, couldn't be more stressed! I have this huge, (literally) life-changing exam around mid-November and I already feel that I won't have time to go over everything I want.
    2. Gap kids: Nowhere near... More like the complete opposite!
    3. Workplace: Nope. Everything is messy because I feel like I'm losing time tidying up when I should be studying although I'm sure I'd study better if everything was organised (sigh...) =P
    4. Pleasures: Burning a candle and reading a good book in Winter time
    5. Nars Bento Box: Doesn't float my boat.
    6. Healthy during Winter: Nothing fancy. Mostly getting to the gym and having the tiniest of portions of high calorie treats.
    7. Accessories. A ring I wear all the time. It was a gift and I love it to pieces.
    8. Decisions. Over-thinker all the way through.
    9. Outfit. Sweatpants, t-shirt, hoodie, socks =P Staying in today!
    10. Weekly goals. Get all of my planned studying done. And after answering this, getting some time aside to tidy up stuff =)

    As for ideas on the polls: 10 questions = 10 sections, 5 should be constant and 5 random ones each week what do you say? The first 5 maybe include 1. outfit (it's fun to read what people are wearing) 2. best/worst moment of the week 3. product (any kind) you're obsessed about 4. name something that caught your eye this week =)
    Maybe the random ones should go around books, tv series, anything you like really =)
    Hope you like some of these ideas!
    'Til next time!

  5. 1. Mood:
    Super anxious. Car is in the shop, apparently it's done for. But the big thing is that a bunch of my schoolwork is in it and I have to loose some points on a project :(

    2. Did you look as stylish as these Gap kids when you were a kid?
    Hell no. I wore those matching floral shirt and legging combos. And big white sneakers. I was a hot mess.

    3. Do you feel your workplace is well organized right now?
    Actually yes! I just cleaned it the other day. Not the drawers though. We don't go in there.

    4. What’s one of your simplest pleasures?
    My fuzzy pink throw blanket.

    5. Would you spend $125 on the NARS Bento Box?
    Absolutely not. I find lip products generally too high-maintenance so it's just not worth it for me. MAYBE if it was eyeshadow or a full makeup kit.

    6. Cold season’s coming. Do you have any tips/tricks to stay healthy?
    Chicken broth. It's high in sodium, sure. But if you have it a couple days a week its DELICIOUS and warm and yummy, and you aren't really eating a big "comfort food" meal.

    7. Are you loving any accessories at the moment?
    This cool layered necklace I got from H&M that's mixed with gold and pearls and really cute cameos. I got matching earrings too.

    8. Do you make snap decisions, or do you always think things through?
    I try and think everything through but if something is stressing me out too much I just make a snap decision.

    9. Today’s outfit?
    Charlotte Russe jeans, long tunic tank top, black AE v-neck hoodie and my uggs.

    10. Weekly goals:
    Figure out this car business, don't miss any classes, and make a good impression at my new job.

  6. 1.Mood:
    Lol, looks like everyone is super stressed right now--including me. SO MUCH school work/projects due and I procrastinate entirely too much..huge problem. (and doing this is furthering it!) :)

    2. Did you look as stylish as these Gap kids when you were a kid?
    No, not in the least bit. Mom dressed me in those neon-like stirrup pants too. And I wasn't seen without my saddle shoes..I even had them in different colors. Apparently Mom thought they were the coolest things ever.

    3. Do you feel your workplace is well organized right now?
    Okay, so I mostly decided to fill this out after I read your response..I just recently started doing that 'tidying up' my room thing too! & it has made such a difference! :)

    4. What’s one of your simplest pleasures?
    Taking the longest and hottest showers I possibly can without worrying about the water bill. Lol-I go to a university where I pay $45,000 a year; it can't hurt to waste a little water, right? :)

    5. Would you spend $125 on the NARS Bento Box?
    No way..Although I'm beauty-obsessed, this would never happen. I don't even own anything from MAC :( I just don't have the means to do so. Settling with drugstore products will have to do for now!

    6. Cold season’s coming. Do you have any tips/tricks to stay healthy?
    I've recently became obsessed with drinking water w/ lemon. I even put little slices into my bottled water--it's said to have many benefits, keeps me vitamin C-packed, and tastes yummy! :)And of course, exercise!

    7. Are you loving any accessories at the moment?
    I'm really not an accessories-type of girl. I love the whole look, but I guess I just don't think I can pull most pieces off. I do, though, always have some kind of studs in my ears; never take off my infinity heart necklace my boyfriend got me, and my diamond & tanzanite ring I designed 4 years ago-& I'm still in love with it! :)

    8. Do you make snap decisions, or do you always think things through?
    Ahh! Both? lol Sometimes I can never make a decision, while other times I'm super impulsive and just snap off at random.

    9. Today's outfit?
    Simple skinnies, and a loose-fitting gray AE tee with a little pocket on the top-left side, & my Candies padova sandals :)

    10.Weekly Goals: Finish off this week SANE! lol Getting through Wednesday is just my main goal right now--so much is due on ONE day!

    Have a great week Allison! :)

  7. 1.Mood: A little bit stressed I guess (but over moving not school).

    2. Did you look as stylish as these Gap kids when you were a kid? I wish. Lol. I grew up in the early 80's so it was neon pants and wild patterns all around.

    3. Do you feel your workplace is well organized right now? It usually is but with the move I have no idea where anything is anymore! I've never felt so disorganized.

    4. What’s one of your simplest pleasures? Dancing with the Stars...or is that a guilty pleasure?!

    5. Would you spend $125 on the NARS Bento Box? Seriously, no.

    6. Cold season’s coming. Do you have any tips/tricks to stay healthy? I do, but I won't say. However most illness is in your head. Seriously try telling yourself you're not sick next time :)

    7. Are you loving any accessories at the moment? My wedding ring is always on. Other than that I'm rockin' a long chained owl necklace.

    8. Do you make snap decisions, or do you always think things through? It depends, but if you ask my husband it's a snap decision. :)

    9. Today's outfit? Hubby's old white tee, Ann Taylor Loft Modern Slims, and bare feet (it's still surprisingly that warm here).

    10.Weekly Goals: Finish painting my master bath and then get a little re-organized! *crosses fingers* :)

    Have a good week and get to class! Lol :)
