Monday Questionnaire: January 31st, 2011

Sorry this is going up so late today! Things have been pretty hectic lately. I've decided to do a little blog challenge for myself for February... post every day! This is going to be a big one for me because I rarely do more than 2 posts a week, so I need to come up with 28 posts for this next month. Expect a lot of product swatches, NOTD's, and more! Wish me luck! Now on to the questions...

The MAC Wonder Woman collection released on the MAC website today... a week and a half earlier than it's official release date! Are you planning on getting anything? http://www.maccosmetics.com

1.) Mood:
Exhausted. I haven't been able to sleep the last few nights.

2.) How was your weekend?
Low key. I've been sick with some kind of cold thing that really isn't fun. My university did have a rivalry basketball game that I went to though, and that was a lot of fun!

3.) Current nail polish:
OPI The One That Got Away with Teenage Dream on my ring finger... an idea I got from a comment left on this blog! I love it!

4.) Do you tend to be too hot, too cold, or just right?

I'm definitely an always cold person. 80 degrees is a perfect day for me!

5.) What is your favorite genre of books?

Probably thriller/mystery types. I love Dan Brown, and anything that involves government conspiracies or legends. After that would be chick lit, of course :)

6.) Current outfit:
American Eagle skinny black pants, Urban Outfitters flowery tank, black cardigan, brown leather Coach boots

7.) Are you a die-hard fan of any sports teams?
Not really. I enjoy going to my university's events and getting really into it, but as far as any pro sports or anything goes, no. I love the Olympics though!

8.) Are you more of an in-store or online shopper?
Probably 50/50. I love online shopping, especially because I don't have a lot of shopping options in my city, but if I can get it in store, I will.

9.) Do you go by a nickname/something other than your given birth name?
Not really. My name is Allison, but a few friends call me Alli sometimes. And now I kind of go by Amarixe, because a lot of people assume that is my name. I never really correct anyone anymore!

10.) Weekly goals:

Blog every day, upload a certain special video to my beauty channel, and do well on my first psych exam of the semester. And make time to take more photos with my camera!

Have a great week everyone!
xx, Allison

  10. Hello girls!

    1.) Mood: I'm quite happy today for no reason it seems. I think I'll do my Spring clean on my wardrobe after eating lunch.

    2.) How was your weekend? It was very nice actually. My boyfriend and I took some people out to lunch on Saturday to celebrate our first ever paycheck. Other than that, it was spent at home recovering from an annoying cold, reading and playing video games.

    3.) Current nail polish: I've broken a nail last week and it is still noticeable so I haven't nothing on my nails at the moment.

    4.) Do you tend to be too hot, too cold, or just right? Usually my inner thermostat is just right.

    5.) What is your favorite genre of books? Fantasy books. Like Tolkien or, at the moment, I can't get enough of Robert Jordan's Wheel of Time. Thus far it's a fantastic series of books that I would recommend to anyone who enjoys the genre.

    6.) Current outfit: Skinny jeans, brown turtleneck and camel long coat with brown-ish boots.

    7.) Are you a die-hard fan of any sports teams? Not so much. Well, when I played volleyball sure, I was a die-hard fan for our team =P But that doesn't really count.

    8.) Are you more of an in-store or online shopper? I'm transitioning. I was an in-store shopper all my life but this last year I've discovered the perks of on-line shopping and this far I have been very happy with the online service from several companies.

    9.) Do you go by a nickname/something other than your given birth name? Nope.

    10.) Weekly goals: sort out my wardrobe and figure out the clothes I'm giving away. Go shopping for curtains. Read tons!

    8.) Are you more of an in-store or online shopper? I would love to be an in store shopper because then, I wouldn't have to pay shipping for everything. Unfortunately, I prefer online shopping because there is more selection available online and a better chance of finding your size.

    10.) Weekly goals: Get all my work done, stay out of the snow as much as possible.

Its my last semester so I need to get it done so I can graduate and begin to enjoy my life before I go to grad school :(.

  20. Support your February Challenge!!! I'm starting my blog too!! =) In fact, your weekly questionnaire is my inspiration to start this blog! Do you mind if I use some of your questions in my blog?? I will definitely reference you and post a comment here to let you know if I ever do so!

    ReplyDelete
  21. 1.) Mood: Eh. It's neutral. I'm just in a relaxed mood I suppose.

    2.) How was your weekend?: I don't really have a weekend...had to work. But that's how it normally is, so it's alright.

    3.) Current nail polish: I'm going natural for a while since I had to get stitches on my finger! (Opps!)

    4.) Do you tend to be too hot, too cold, or just right?: I'm like you. I'm a really cold person! I love summers in Kentucky. It feels just right!

    5.) What is your favorite genre of books?: Is woman's studies considered a genre!? Whatever it is, that's the section I go to, and I have like 200 books from it :)

    6.) Current outfit: Pajamas! Walmart had a huge sale after Valentines Day (if you're lucky they still might have a few things there - I work there in apparel). I seriously got 8 different pajama outfits for $3!! Yeah, we seriously slashed prices on the V-Day stuff! :)

    7.) Are you a die-hard fan of any sports teams?: Eh. No...kinda. I love the Bears, but I don't keep up with them enough to call myself a real fan. I also like my old high school football team! Oh, and the Colts...kinda.

    8.) Are you more of an in-store or online shopper?: I'm more in-store since I like to see in person what I'm buying, but since where I moved to doesn't have a Sephora, I do some shopping online now.

    9.) Do you go by a nickname/something other than your given birth name?: Cassie. I'd rather be called Cassie then have someone botch the pronunciation of my name. You would think pronouncing Cassandra would be easy! (Ca-son-dra...not SAND-ra)

    10.) Weekly goals: Clean my living room, and possibly my bedroom. A little help from my boyfriend would be nice! Haha.

    Have a great weekend Allison!
