Thursday Poll



I have been getting next to no sleep lately and it is all Mr. Sith's fault. No. He’s not snoring or hogging the covers. He gave me a Sudoku book and a Crossword puzzle book. For our trip to Las Vegas he picked up those 2 books as well as Running with Scissors. I decided to jut read the book instead of playing games. (By The Way, that book is freakin tragic!) Well when we got home I unpacked and put the Sudoku book by my nightstand. One night recently, while getting ready for bed, I crack open the book and started on the easy puzzles in the book. The next thing I know it's 11PM and my alarm is set for 5AM. That's 6 hours of sleep, if I'm lucky. Ugh. I proceed to do the same thing each night for the entire week. Thank goodness crossword puzzles are a bit more challenging and I can put them down and come back to them later. There is just something about leaving a blank space on a Sudoku puzzle that drives me batty! Finally, today the lack of sleep catches up with me. Sure, I've been sleepy all week and wanting to nap when I get home, but I finally realized that I'm not 25 anymore and I just cannot function on 6 hours of sleep. I also realized that Sudoku is addicting. I'm seriously so tired that I feel as if I've been on the verge of tears all week. It sucks getting old. I'll tell you that right now. For you readers in your early to mid 20's. Enjoy it while you can. (Of course you won't. I know I didn't realize how good I had it until it was gone!) Sleep 4 hours, 2 hours not at all. You can do it and function, and for that I am deeply jealous and admire you. *donning a walker and shawl and a chin hair the length of a small rodent* You whippersnappers better get off my lawn before I call the police on you! Walking around in your miniskirts and jeans with the holes in them. Why I oughtta... Whoa! I think I just turned into an 80 year old wretched cat lady. Sorry you had to see that. Just a glimpse of the future I have waiting for me!
On To The Poll!

1. Blush Of The Day - Chanel JC in Rose Temptation. OMG this is a pigmented blush. It's a little powdery in the pan but I have to apply it with a skunk brush so I don't overwhelm myself with color. It's a deep warm toned rose. Perfection!

2. Do you play any puzzle games like crossword, Sudoku, jumble, etc? - Well Yes. Sudoku because I suck at math but this game doesn't require math skills so it makes me feel smart because I'm insecure. I just love puzzles in general. I love the challenge and the satisfaction once it is solved.

3. Any or recent beauty purchase you regretted? - Ugh. That LORAC palette. I really want to love it, but the softness of the shadows just kills it for me, plus the useless brush and average eye primer annoy me. I can't find my receipt either so that sucks as well.

4. Do you have a vision of what you will look like when you are 80, 90, 100? - Yes. I think I'll have long grey hair and wrinkles. I'll probably still have acne (FML) and I'll be sporting bright red lipstick because I can. The chin hair will be nonexistent because Mr. Sith promised to pluck it for me if I ever get too old or infirmed to do it myself!

5. Current beauty obsession? - Right now, my skin is clear and smooth and acne free. It has been for an entire week. If you knew me you would know how awesome that is. I think it's because I started using this new Estee Lauder stuff but I can't be sure. I need to give it a month for my stupid hormones to kick in and try to ruin my skin again. Hopefully my skin will remain clear. So my obsession is making sure I don't do anything to disturb my skin right now.

  1. No sleep and clear skin? You're definitely younger than me!

    1. Blush Of The Day

    Milani Luminous. Can you believe I've almost hit pan on this? I've used it for 6 months, I think...

    2. Do you play any puzzle games like crossword, Sudoku, jumble, etc?

    I love puzzles! I love sudoku - surprisingly it has a different name in Japan, even though "sudoku" is technically Japanese. Sudoku = numbers (su) + read (doku)
    In Japan, we call it Nankuro = Nan (from Numbers) + kuro (from "kurosuwa-do" = crossword). Funny how the English word comes from Japanese and the Japanese word comes from English!

    3. Any or recent beauty purchase you regretted?

    Not really, but someone recently sent me a mascara that I actually hate. Not sure what I'll do with it.

    4. Do you have a vision of what you will look like when you are 80, 90, 100?

    Absolutely not. I'm still freaking out that I'm almost 30 and still stuck in Japan.

    5. Current beauty obsession?

    I just want to get through summer without too much sun damage and too many breakouts. I always used to get breakouts in the summer when I was in school. I thought I had grown out of that!

  2. I have a sudoko game on my phone and it is totally addictive. I want to complete each of the 50 games on the four levels. I'm only 3 genius puzzles away :D

  3. I have Sudoku on my iPod AND phone. And yeah, I play it at night. Thing is, I don't know if it's genetic or what, but my mother and I seriously hardly need sleep. Sure, if we CAN we easily sleep for 10+ hours, but I can function on 2-4 hours of sleep without problems. Eheheh. ENVY ME (US).

  4. 1. Blush Of The Day - Lacome Mandarin Sky Shimmer blush - it's what I wanted Orgasm to look like on me - peachy pink w/ gold shimmah!

    2. Do you play any puzzle games like crossword, Sudoku, jumble, etc? I was in a sudoku phase - now I just read books about tortured people/sad stories that keep me up at night (btw, I was up at 5am too - DS was hungry :< blarg.)

    3. Any or recent beauty purchase you regretted? - MAC Flurry of Fun l/g - I wanted a sheer coral and I got clear with blue frost. FAIL.

    4. Do you have a vision of what you will look like when you are 80, 90, 100? No because I look just like my mother and she passed away at age 54. I have NO IDEA what I'm gonna look like. I'll be feisty though (aka: a little PITA.)

    5. Current beauty obsession? - Plowing my way through drugstore mascaras with a lot of hype. I'm wearing Colossal lately - it's pretty good!

  5. 1. Blush Of The Day - Oh sh!! I forgot the blush. As always my oversleeping self had to put on foundation concealer in powder in the car today while waiting on my McD breakfast order.. its almost required for me to have that for my grannie when I drop my son off on the days I don't take him to the babysitter. So i had enough time for foundation, concealer, powder. Then it was my time to order, and my ADHD brain clicked on another circuit and my makeup was no more. Maybe I will put on some blush before the rest of the world sees me and it will be Style blush (MAC) as that is the one I have in my purse/shoulder makeup bag... but I do love it. It really works for my complexion.

    2. Do you play any puzzle games like crossword, Sudoku, jumble, etc? - I do like crosswords, but whenever the word I pick for the solution doesn't fit, I get all pissy.I have a tendency to look at the solution in the back of the book and wonder, "Why is CYAN the answer for Color of Blue staring with C... why not CERULEAN?? WTF... who WRITES these puzzles anyway!! Cerulean was the prettiest blue.... That was my favorite color crayon from the crayon box.... aww... what a beautiful color...." and then officially any attention i had been paying to the puzzle is lost at that point.
    Sudoku i just can't wrap my brain around it. I haven't even ever been able to fill out one whole line correctly. I suck. I do like word searches though. I am more visual i guess!

    3. Any or recent beauty purchase you regretted? - Hmmm... not really. but I do regret not buyings MUFE HD foundation that my sister bought at sephora in tulsa. She was smart and tried it out there with the salesgirls help because we had been looking at it for a while (the search for a perfect foundation never ends for us paley girls). Then when we came home she tried it on me and I loved it. So now i've got to buy it. Bah!

    4. Do you have a vision of what you will look like when you are 80, 90, 100? - No, I don't. If i look as happy and radiant and jovial as my grandmother looks though then I will be OK. She is only 64 so she isn't THAT old but she always seems to have a smile on her face and her eyes are full of life. I love her!!

    5. Current beauty obsession? - I love that your skin is clear! That is awesome! I am obsessing over a foundation. Finding one, that is. I did manage to get my hands on my HG from prescriptives as their last-stock type of thing and I STILL love it as much as ever, but for some reason I have lightened in skintone because it is a half shade too dark.
    Since prescriptives is closing its doors, The search continues! But it is wearable with a translucent powder, which seems to lighten it up and it doesn't really oxidize any so thats good.
    I wish I had clearer skin, but since I don't have to take BCP anymore (yay mirena!!!) my skin is much clearer than the past years. birth control pills mean major wreckage to my skin and my mind, since they make me nuttier than a christmas fruit cake.

  7. 1. Blush Of The Day - None yet. It's going to be pink though, I can guarantee.

    2. Do you play any puzzle games like crossword, Sudoku, jumble, etc? - Not at all, I'm horrible at them and get bored easily. The closest thing I play to a puzzle is Pixelated on my droid.. the goal is basically to fill the whole screen with one color and slowly eliminate the other colors.

    3. Any or recent beauty purchase you regretted? - It wasn't very recent, but my entire order from beautyticket. everything just seemed old and all.. not pleasant. I don't know why I didn't send it back, honestly.

    4. Do you have a vision of what you will look like when you are 80, 90, 100? - I fear that I'll still be wearing bright colored eyeshadow. And 6" heels.

    5. Current beauty obsession? -
    Lipstick. Well, shopping my stash for lipstick since I've decided to do a shopping ban. My best friend has finally caved and let me sort of re-do her entire stash.. so I'll be living vicariously through her for one day in the future. :)

  9. i'm thinking you better review this estee lauder stuff stat. I just tried avene diacneal and it ruined my skin. cystic crap on my chin :(

    1. Blush Of the Day- none yet but I will probably use this bright orangey coral mouse blush from smashbox. I think its called heat

    2. Do you play any puzzle games?- I love a good game of sudoku for sure. Also, one of the roommates just brought home a roll of zoo animal coloring sheets so we have been coloring recently. Yep, i'm 5 i know.

    3. Any recent beauty purchases you regretted?- well i didnt purchase it I swapped for it but avene diacneal. I would just like to say a big thank you to that product for the nice cystic acne that i have never had before.

    4. Do you have a vision of what you will look like when you are 80, 90, 100?- Well my grandma just turned 80 and since i look most like her i'm hoping i will look similar. She sure doesnt look 80 at all.

    5. Current beauty obsession?- trying to get my skin back to normal. I'm taking a whole lotta zinc right now hoping it will help it all heal faster. Dont worry i approved it with my mom who is a nurse so i'm not poisoning myself.

    2. Do you play any puzzle games like crossword, Sudoku, jumble, etc? - yes, but video ones like Tetris or Bejeweled (my fave)

    3. Any or recent beauty purchase you regretted? 2 mascaras: Helena Rubinstein Lash Queen and some Collistar one. I guess I'm stuck with Faux-Cils even if it dries out after 8 weeks, nothing else works as good for me.

    4. Do you have a vision of what you will look like when you are 80, 90, 100? - Considering my genes, I'll probably have white hair (I already have some) but no wrinkles. You can't have it all, I guess.

  13. 1. Blush Of The Day - I was wearing NARS Sin, but then realized that it's really not a good choice when I have even minor blemishes because it's pretty much the same color as the redness I get thus my blush looks patchy no matter what. So, I blended it out a bit and then put R&R Spank on top.

    2. Do you play any puzzle games like crossword, Sudoku, jumble, etc? - Um, Cubis? Or that gem drop game, but I actually try to avoid playing those so I don't get sucked in LOL.

    3. Any or recent beauty purchase you regretted? - That Korres set I recently reviewed. I only like one thing in it and it's not even the right color for me. And I bought it in GREECE so I have no hope of returning. T_T;

    4. Do you have a vision of what you will look like when you are 80, 90, 100? - Um... I imagine I'll look like my grandma.

    5. Current beauty obsession? - Ugh - sleep!!! I can't remember the last time I slept through the night and it's showing horribly on my face. I haven't had to put on this many layers of concealer since I was applying to grad school 9 months ago. Not to mention bad sleep makes me more stressed out leading to acne and cold sores etc. ;_;

  14. 1. Blush Of The Day

    MAC Springsheen. I did a gold and turquoise/teal eye, so I felt like a peachy cheek and nude lip with a hint (and I mean a *hint) of peach/orange

    2. Do you play any puzzle games like crossword, Sudoku, jumble, etc?

    Mum buys these women's magazines that have a tonne of puzzles in them, so I usually try to attempt the ones she leaves - which is almost all of them since she only likes crosswords :P I always try the sudoku in these ones but I fail epically at it.

    3. Any or recent beauty purchase you regretted?

    None recently, mostly just lipsticks I've had for months and havent used because they dont suit me =/ that and my 88 shimmer palette, which doesnt get much love because I always stare at how chunky it is and get grossed out.

    4. Do you have a vision of what you will look like when you are 80, 90, 100?

    I'll probably still be wearing bright pink eyeshadow :D

    5. Current beauty obsession?

    Drugstore lipsticks. Actually, drugstore products in general! And I've gotten my friends obsessed too! Whenever we go out I manage to drag them to a drugstore and we swatch the exact same lipsticks in each one. And I usually force one particular friend to buy pink lipsticks, even though now she has like 10 that all look the same :D

    I'm really digging Revlon lipsticks right now, and their cream shadow quads. I've kind of gotten into a Pokemon 'catch em all' mentality XD
