Thursday Poll

Burnt out.
That's how I feel right now.
Burnt out on makeup, burnt out at work, burnt out on the holidays. It's all too much. Christmas decorations went up after Halloween, Stores have been playing Holiday tunes since the beginning of November, the office Holiday Party has been scheduled for THIS weekend, December 6th. Really? Yes. It's so early! Ugh...and all the freakin Makeup sales, friends and family sales, free shipping, 20% off, code for this code for that Sephora, Sephora, Sephora....Calgon take me away. (apologies to those born after 1980...you just won't get that reference.) So, take my mind off of the mundane holiday crap. Participate in my Poll and share your innermost thoughts and blush of the day.


1) Blush of the day? - Chanel Mocha

2) Did you buy anything from the recent on-line Sephora Friends & Family, Shu Uemura, Bobbi Brown, or any other 20+% off incentive sale?
- Yes


2 a) If your answer is no. Please stop reading this poll a.s.a.p. You are a better woman (or man) than I.


3) If your answer is Yes, do you feel like you over spent, did just right or wish you had gotten more?
- I felt like did really well and bought just the right amount except for some perfume, which was definitely an impulse buy and I regret the purchase. mostly because I can't return it and because I really didn't NEED it. At least it was just one item. I guess.


4) Last Movie you Saw in the Theater and the next you want to see in the theater? - James Bond Quantum of Solace just saw and L-O-V-E-D it. Next movie I want to see is "Punisher- War Zone" Ray Stevenson is THE MAN. I loved him in HBO's Rome. (Still pissed it ended) and I'm so happy to see The Punisher FINALLY told the right way.

5) Favorite Celebrity gossip website? - Dlisted.com I'm so ashamed to admit it. But it's like a bad car wreck. you just can't look away even though you really are horrified.

6) Lipstick you are really loving right now? - Besame Dusty Rose. It really is a perfect rose color for me. I never would have bought it for myself. I'm so thankful to have received it as a gift from a very generous petagirl.

5 comments:

  1. I totally feel you on the burnt-out-ness. And I totally agree that the 6th is too early for Christmas parties.

    1) Paula Dorf Aria

    2) Yes

    3) Wish I had gotten more, because I ended up buying some Smashbox eyeshadow like 2 days after the sale. Doh! No biggie though... unless you are doing a major haul (which I was not), 20% is not that much moolah saved. Also what gives with Shu taking weeks/months to deliver! I wish I had known that prior to ordering...I think I have gotten away from the question here.

    4) Last movie I saw was Rachel Getting Married (of which I was skeptical, but ended up liking), and do not have plans for the next movie. I get the feeling that I am not Hollywood's target audience...

    5) I don't have one, but I do sometimes watch the E! channel news.

    6) I recently rediscovered my Clinique LE color Black Raisin, great sheer browny-berry-plum color.

  2. I'm a '87 baby and I got the Calgon reference =P I LOVED Calgon when I was a pre-teen!!

    1) Blush of the day? - I'm still in bed. Get back to me on that later.

    2) Did you buy anything from the recent on-line Sephora Friends & Family, Shu Uemura, Bobbi Brown, or any other 20+% off incentive sale? - Sadly, yes, and quite a bit...I got EVERY Sephora code email: The $20 off $15, the F&F one, the instore F&F one, and that stupid $15 off $35 gift card one. And I used them all...still haven't even TRIED everything I got yet!

    2 a) If your answer is no. Please stop reading this poll a.s.a.p. You are a better woman (or man) than I.

    3) If your answer is Yes, do you feel like you over spent, did just right or wish you had gotten more? - I bought a bunch of long-time lemmings and all of my purchases were well-researched and not very expensive. I wish I could have gotten a few more things but there was a decent amount of MAC stuff I wanted so I knew I couldn't overspend.

    4) Last Movie you Saw in the Theater and the next you want to see in the theater? - Saw V, I think...The Spirit! and Revolutionary Road =D

    5) Favorite Celebrity gossip website? - Dlisted.com and Perez Hilton and The YBF =)

    6) Lipstick you are really loving right now? - my Lancome Aaron's Red =D

  3. 1. Becca Gypsy
    2. Yes, but only from Sephora and beauty.com. I didn't do any of the brand-specific F&Fs
    3. I don't think I overspent, but had I known Sephora was going to send the $15 GCs, I would have waited. Instead, I made two orders over $50 just to get free ship *hangs head*
    4. Four Christmases, Zach and Miri make a Porno and Religulous. I go to the movies too much, I think.
    5. What Would Tyler Durden Do, www.wwtdd.com
    6. Chantecaille Lotus. Do love.

  4. 1) Blush of the day? - E.L.F. Color Stick in Pink Lemonade. Very pretty even though it smells like children's aspirin

    2) Did you buy anything from the recent on-line Sephora Friends & Family, Shu Uemura, Bobbi Brown, or any other 20+% off incentive sale? - Sort of. I gave my $15 off $35 coupon to someone on MUA and asked her to get me a nailpolish I'm too cheap to buy full price (Sephora OPI Metro Chic)

    2 a) If your answer is no. Please stop reading this poll a.s.a.p. You are a better woman (or man) than I.

    3) If your answer is Yes, do you feel like you over spent, did just right or wish you had gotten more? - Just right because at first I was going to try to get more stuff just to get the dammed $9 nail polish and decided that I needed NOTHING and I helped someone else out.


    4) Last Movie you Saw in the Theater and the next you want to see in the theater? - Well, not really a movie but the San Francisco Opera cinemacast of Don Giovanni with Mariusz Kwiecien singing and sexing it up. Last REAL movie I saw in the movie theater was Festival Express in 2005 or something! Next "movie" will be the Met Opera theatercast of Lucia di Lammermoor with Kwiecien. Next REAL movie is ???

    5) Favorite Celebrity gossip website? - Dlisted.com. I also love Towleroad, which is a gay gossip/political blog.


    6) Lipstick you are really loving right now? - Red :)

  5. 1) Mark. bronze pro.

    2) Can you believe that I have not shopped at Sephora in more than three months. I totally forgot about F&F. I will say that one of my students in an operations manager at the distribution center near me, and he said that they are having record numbers of shipments. He is constantly working. You ladies are working him to the bone.

    4) I saw Role Models, and it was really funny.

    5) I actually really enjoy dlisted. He has snark, but isn't as annoying as perez.

    BTW, I am having a little boy. yay!
