Thursday Poll



Louise over at the Get Lippie blog is having a little giveaway. She is giving away some incredibly awesome stuff. Chanel nail polish, Guerlain Kohl, Chanel lipstick. Pretty nice for such an old woman (I joke, she's only a year older than me). The rules of her contest are that you either blog about what makes you happy OR, if you don't have a blog, you send an e-mail to her at contest@getlippie.com about something that makes you happy. I have linked her contest post under the word "giveaway" at the beginning of this post so that you all can enter too. It's not like one person's happy thing will win over another, she's using a random number generator to pick a winner from the qualified entries. So I decided to write about what makes me happy for this weeks Thursday poll. First and foremost my Husband, Mr. Sith and my son, Darthypie make me the most happy. Darthypie is 3 years old now and can identify Emperor Palpatine AND Grand Moff Tarkin by sight. That makes me happy. He squeals. "PINK DARTH VADER!" every time he sees the blog on the computer or my facebook page. He says "Mommy you're AWESOME!" like DJ Lance Rock from Yo Gabba Gabba. (If you have no idea what this is you don't have children under 5...be thankful. YGG is fun but not what I call stimulating entertainment for those over the age of 6). Aside from the 2 men in my life making me happy, my friends make me happy too. You know who you are. Some I have known for years and some I have never met in person but your friendship makes me happy. My pets make me happy...for the most part, except when HLB the cat pees outside of his litter box. Material things make me happy. I won't deny it. I like money and the things that money can buy. But other mundane things make me happy too. Fresh cut roses from out garden, peaches from our peach tree, naps in the middle of the day, fresh bed linens, jeans that fit perfectly, taupe eyeshadow. All of that makes me happy. Now here is a chance to talk about some stuff that makes you happy...and a chance for me to list some more stuff that makes me happy all at the same time. It's a win=win...and by WIN I mean LOUISE at Get Lippie. I want to WIN. LOL Actually I should be shouting the the random number generator...RNG! I WANT TO WIN! Winning would make me HAPPY! on to the poll.

1. Blush Of The Day? - BECCA PSP in Princess with MAC Alpha Girl BP from the Heatherette collection on top. It makes a nice warm glow on my cheeks.

2. What 1 mundane thing makes you happy? - Brand New Lipstick. I love the simplicity of a brand new lipstick. The potential it holds. The smooth, virgin lines of the product. And that feeling of first using it. So smooth (hopefully), so creamy (Hopefully), so perfect.

3. What is the last makeup purchase that made you happy? - For sure the BECCA Tuberose Lip & Cheek Creme and the BECCA Tatiana Lipstick. They are both such wonderful colors. I feel happy just looking at them and wearing them.

4. What Song, Movie, Book, and/or TV Show makes you happy? - Well not one specific song, but a lot of early 1980's top 40 songs sung in the car with Mr. Sith make me happy. They will make me even more happy when Darthypie is a teenager and I embarrass him doing so. A movie that makes me happy is Defending Your Life. It stars Albert Brook and Meryl Streep. It's such a funny and fun take on the afterlife and a lovely romance.

5. Is there a perfume, scent, and/or specific smell that makes you happy? - Believe it or not Clinique Happy Heart perfume makes me happy. (I wrote about it HERE). The smell of salt water and coconut tanning oil makes me happy too...because it reminds me of the beach and the ocean, and the scent of peach pie in the oven makes me happy too...because I love pie. It's my favorite dessert.

  4. I feel kind of embarrassed now, I've watched Yo Gabba Gabba on several occasions and I'm nineteen years old. Hahaha. (Basically for Biz's beat of the day.. esp. the Halloween one.)

    1. Blush Of The Day? - I'm contemplating NARS orgasm or the one in the ELF set that looks like NARS Orgasm.

    2. What 1 mundane thing makes you happy? - I absolutely love it when Sephora releases new 'favorites' or boxed sets. I get instantly happy when I see a new one. :)

    3. What is the last makeup purchase that made you happy? - Finally getting my hands on the Benefit Sampler thing.. It wasn't in stock the first time I tried to buy it.

    4. What Song, Movie, Book, and/or TV Show makes you happy? - Any Jodi Picoult books, Desperate Housewives, any old-school rap songs. I'm not much of a movie person.

    5. Is there a perfume, scent, and/or specific smell that makes you happy? - It was Armani d'Idole, but that was my go-to scent when I was in college, so now it reminds me of loneliness and lots of trouble. :) hahaa. I really like Escada's Marine Groove at the moment.

  5. Happiness is a warm puppy.

    1. Blush Of The Day?

    NYC pink mosaic blush from when it was LE. I felt pinkish today and it was the only pink blush in the bathroom.

    2. What 1 mundane thing makes you happy?

    An easy subway ride. Not too crowded or smelly, no crazies, getting a "good" seat and be able to knit during my commute.

    3. What is the last makeup purchase that made you happy?

    Probably the two Lacura lippies I bought at Aldis. Not so much because of the colors which are 'meh' (though I love the texture -- light, smooth, creamy . . .), but because there is an ALDIS down the street from my NEW HOUSE!

    4. What Song, Movie, Book, and/or TV Show makes you happy?

    Movie: Gigi ALWAYS makes me happy. It is so romantic too.

    TV show: Charlie and Lola, even though I don't have kids, nor cable TV and so I watch it on Youtube or DVD.

    Books: My collection of fashion/costume history books. I have about 750, the first of which I got as a birthday present when I was 7 years old.

    Song: Probably the entire Mozart opera The Marriage of Figaro. It is perfect and very funny.

    5. Is there a perfume, scent, and/or specific smell that makes you happy?

    Lilacs, Linden trees (aka "sex trees"), the attic in our NEW HOUSE, DH, springtime.

  6. 1. Blush Of The Day? - MUFE eyeshadow #136. It's an eyeshadow but it's a corally-pink-rose with gold shimmer that looks great on my cheekies. I do need to try it on my eyes though.

    2. What 1 mundane thing makes you happy? - I'm not sure if this is mundane, but having dinner with a friend is literally the one of the greatest joys of my life. I love the intimacy of talking and sharing food. If I can pick another thing, it'd be going to the movies. I always meet fun people at the movies! Or if I go with a friend, I cuddle with them.

    3. What is the last makeup purchase that made you happy? - I asked Amy (@TheBeautyChick3 on Twitter) to pick me up the three MUFE eyeshadows I was dying to get at TMS because MUFE was 40% off. She got them for me! I'm seeing her for dinner next week, and I'm so thrilled.

    4. What Song, Movie, Book, and/or TV Show makes you happy? - Ok, song: "Amerimacka" by Thievery Corporation. Movie: "Jurassic Park". Book: "The Chosen". TV Show: "Six Feet Under"

    5. Is there a perfume, scent, and/or specific smell that makes you happy? - Powdery musk smells make me unbelievably happy. So does the smell of my boss' Hermes perfume. I forget which one she wears but it makes my heart happy.

  7. 1. Blush Of The Day?
    NARS Orgasm. Just got it and I now understand what the hype is all about!

    2. What 1 mundane thing makes you happy?
    Falling asleep on the sofa in the middle of the day when watching a matine! Oh, how I love that! But sadly I can't these days as I no longer have a tv.

    MAC lipstick Dressmaker, dressmaker. It made me do a happy dance and funny faces :P


    4. What Song, Movie, Book, and/or TV Show makes you happy?
    Song? 90s pop hits!
    Book: Harry Potter!
    TV show: Anything b and cheesy, but not American cheesy, but b sci fi, cartoons or such :D Anything b and geeky?

    5. Is there a perfume, scent, and/or specific smell that makes you happy? Yes, but I don't know what it is. Sometimes I smell it and I stop and go "ah" and get calm, relaxed, nostalgic and happy. I think it's a scent I remember from being a kid but I have no idea what the smell is!

    Also the smell of apartment building cellars and laundry rooms <3

  10. 1. Estee Lauder Peach Nuance- I have no idea if this is really a dupe for the infamous MAC Ripe Peach, but it's a gorgeous blush in its own right
    2. Lucky Cats. I love them. Just seeing one makes me smile.
    3. Hrmm...probably the Estee Lauder Peach Nuance blush. I haven't bought much makeup lately.
    4. GLEE!! And Gossip Girl. And the Glee soundtracks. And the Harry Potter, Dresden Files, and Sookie Stackhouse series of books.
    5. It's embarassing, but the original Ed Hardy. I love it.
