Thursday Poll


Darthypie will be Turning 4 next week. It's amazing how fast time has gone. Oh and Yes. I have seen that Volkswagon commercial with the kid in the Vader suit and Yes it does remind me of Darthypie a whole lot. I love it. So Birthday parties for kid where I live are very different from when I was growing up. First of all, most parties past the age of 1 are held at places like Chuck E Cheese, Moon Bounce Arenas, Karate Studios, or Fire Stations. Rarely if ever does a kid under the age of 5 have a party at their home. I don't know about you, but when I was a kid it was pin the tail on the donkey, musical chairs, a pinata (if you were lucky) and cake. Now it's Pizza and Cake and some sort of activity. Oh and what is also new. Kids were usually dropped off at my house and the parents came back for them later. Now the parents HAVE TO attend the party for the duration. That means enduring over an hour of top 40 music, or what is supposed to be music, screaming kids and making small talk with other parents. This is not what I signed up for. OK. I didn't sign up for anything, but still. It's insane.  Oh, and the oddest part is that kids don't open presents in front of other kids.  All the presents are corralled on a table then put into big plastic bags and loaded into the car of the birthday child. Really?  I just spent $15 on a present for your kid. could you at least afford me the opportunity to see his reaction when he unwraps it?  Nope.  Now I could be a rebel. I could go against the status quo and have a party at home, have pin the tail on the donkey and open presents in front of everyone, but that would all be for me. And this party isn't about me. it's about Darthypie. If that's the style where we live and we can afford it, then I say let's do it.  all my childhood memories don't have to be relived through my child.  However, having talked with parents of kid who have older siblings, the "event" party usually goes away by age 5 or 6 and then only a select few are taken out to celebrate.  Thanks goodness. Maybe I can even drop Darthypie off at a birthday party for an hour or so and get some retail therapy. That would be nice.  But in the mean time. I'm in no hurry to have him grow up. Right now he still runs to greet me when I come home, tells me he loves me and wants to play with me. I'll enjoy it while I can, because I'm sure as soon as I can say teenager Darthypie will be 13 and embarrassed to be seen with me. (which is my goal in life anyway).
On To The Poll!

1.  Blush Of The Day? - I'm wearing the blush from the Chantecaille Tiger In The Wild Palette. It's amazing how much pigment you can pick up by softly taping the blush brush on the pan. The color reminds me of a lighter Chanel JC In Love and a Darker Nars Orgasm Blush.

2.  Were the bulk of your birthday celebrations as a child celebrated outside of the home? Did you open presents in front of everyone or save it until later? - Well as you ca see above mine were celebrated at home and presents were opened in front of everyone. And I liked it that way.

3.  Do you consider the color of your clothes when choosing what makeup to wear? - I definitely do. I usually choose a cool or warm blush based on the outfit and that will dictate the kind of eye makeup I do as well. But since I wear mostly black and grey I can do whatever I like.

4.  When is your birthday (Month and Day only)? And is there anything special you want this year fro your birthday? - Mine is July 2nd.  I have a long list of stuff I want but it's all too expensive.  If I had my druthers I would like a Cartier LOVE bracelet in platinum. I would even take one in 14K gold, but even the gold one is 6 thousand or something crazy like that.  So I'll settle for a long weekend in NYC and a bottle of Cereus Pour Femme #3 perfume from Barney's.

5.  What kind of HOOR are you (Lipstick, Eyeshadow, Foundation, Blush, Specific Color) and what was your most recent purchase in your HOOR category? - I'm definitely a taupe eyeshadow HOOR. But you  knew that. My most recent purchase was a Wet n Wild Eyeshadow in Silent Treatment. After Reading Amy's review on Cafe Makeup I was sold!

  1. 1. Blush Of The Day? - Mac Stereo Rose MSF. Yes, I'm THAT pale, it shows up enough on me to be a blush.

    2. Were the bulk of your birthday celebrations as a child celebrated outside of the home? Did you open presents in front of everyone or save it until later? At home, with only my friends (and not the damn whole class) and I did open the presents while people were there.

    3. Do you consider the color of your clothes when choosing what makeup to wear? I never play matchy matchy but I make sure nothing clashes. My nailpolish is more of a problem since I light all kind of colors there but change it every 3-4 days only.

    4. When is your birthday (Month and Day only)? And is there anything special you want this year fro your birthday? - July 27. I always try to be off from work on my birthday's week so I can do whatever I want at that moment.

    5. What kind of HOOR are you (Lipstick, Eyeshadow, Foundation, Blush, Specific Color) and what was your most recent purchase in your HOOR category? - I'm a makeup hoor, end of the story LOL. Ok if anything, I'd say foundation, because you can keep e/s or blush (which I also buy in bulk) for a long time but owning 15 foundations is pointless, yet I still do and keep buying. Last purchase was yesterday, Chanel Vitalumiere Aqua. Liking it on me today :)

  2. 1. Blush Of The Day? Fyrinnae Charm

    2. Were the bulk of your birthday celebrations as a child celebrated outside of the home? Did you open presents in front of everyone or save it until later? ALL of them were family affairs, since a cousin and I had such close birthdays (well, we did get to have bigger parties too). We always opened the presents in front of everyone!

    3. Do you consider the color of your clothes when choosing what makeup to wear? Always! Or, the other way around, actually ...

    4. When is your birthday (Month and Day only)? And is there anything special you want this year for your birthday? August 24 - I want Prada Infusion d'Iris!!!!

    5. What kind of HOOR are you (Lipstick, Eyeshadow, Foundation, Blush, Specific Color) and what was your most recent purchase in your HOOR category? Ohhh .... "all"? Ok, I'll say perfume. Most recently I bought some samples from ZOMG Smells. They're definitely unique scents, and I'm thinking I may be more of a traditional girl after all :O

  3. 1)Blush of the day is Bobbi Brown Maui.
    2)Birthday parties were at home and you got the equivilant number of guests as you were years old.. A 4 year old would have 4 friends over. There was play time, organized games, some prizes for all , we opened the gifts, and then cake and ice cream served just about the time the parents could come to pick up. The moms would always have some coffee and cake while we ran around outside some more playing with the new toys!
    3)I never match clothes and makeup- only Occasions and makeup. There is work makeup, cocktail makeup, weekend makeup.. etc.
    4) my birthday is April 28 and I would LOVE a gift of landscaping - a spring clean up and some hardscaping spruce ups!
    5) Eye shadow hoor here. With eyeliners running a close 2nd!

  4. 1. Blush Of The Day? None. I have a natural blush today.

    2. Were the bulk of your birthday celebrations as a child celebrated outside of the home? Did you open presents in front of everyone or save it until later? I don't remember most of them, but I remember not wanting to celebrate most of them, so I suppose I was home, presents probably in front of family.

    3. Do you consider the color of your clothes when choosing what makeup to wear? I consider in this order:what is happening at work-what clothes-then makeup.

    4. When is your birthday (Month and Day only)? And is there anything special you want this year for your birthday? Sept. 8. Special gift? All my gifts are special, so I'll interpret special as "never gonna happen" $150.00 gift certificate to Fyrinnae or a Technivorm Moccamaster coffee maker.

    5. What kind of HOOR are you (Lipstick, Eyeshadow, Foundation, Blush, Specific Color) and what was your most recent purchase in your HOOR category? Definitely shadows. Most recent purchase was an insane amount of Sugarpill shadows during the sale on Monday.

  5. 1. Blush Of The Day? - Guerlain Divinora Rose pluie d'or, my go-to blush.

    2. Were the bulk of your birthday celebrations as a child celebrated outside of the home? Did you open presents in front of everyone or save it until later? - Most of them at home and presents were opened in front of everybody.

    3. Do you consider the color of your clothes when choosing what makeup to wear? - Yes, I think so.

    4. When is your birthday (Month and Day only)? And is there anything special you want this year fro your birthday? - My birthday was this week, Valentine's day! No special requests but I did get a nice watch from my parents.

    5. What kind of HOOR are you (Lipstick, Eyeshadow, Foundation, Blush, Specific Color) and what was your most recent purchase in your HOOR category? - Lipstick and nail polish. I recently bought a lovely Rimmel polish in Pulsating (some sort of purplish fucsia).

  6. 1. Blush of the day: Tarte bronzer. Hotel Heiress? That one, I think.

    2. Were the bulk of your birthday celebrations as a child celebrated outside of the home?
    It wasn't always the same; sometimes they were at home, sometimes out (kid-friendly restaurants, etc). I think when I was really little, I opened presents in front of everyone...but I distinctly remember stopping that practice as I got older (late elementary school?) because it was awkward. I think parents encourage their kid to wait until everyone goes home so that other kids and parents don't get a chance to compare and judge and what not, or feel bad if their present isn't as expensive/well-received as someone else's. I would say that I hope my parents did a good enough job of raising me that I didn't visibly make faces at less popular gifts when I was little, but...kids will be kids. So I actually agree with this practice.

    3. Do you consider the color of your clothes when choosing what makeup to wear?
    Yep.

    4. When is your birthday (month and day only)? And is there anything special you want this year for your birthday?
    Nov. 22. Much too far away to think about ;) It was just here!

    5. What kind of HOOR are you (Lipstick, Eyeshadow, Foundation, Blush, Specific Color) and what was your most recent purchase in your HOOR category?
    Without a doubt, eye shadow.

  7. 1. No blush today, my natural flush is out in full force today. :(

    2. I have a twin who has always been way more interested in birthdays than I am, so usually she came up with party ideas and I just asked my friends to show up wherever she chose!

    3. I do a neutral look most of the time and I don't often wear colour, so no, not really!

    4. February 7th, so it just happened! I turned 21 so I guess next year I want to take a fun trip to Vegas or something!

    5. First and foremost, I'm a total lacquerhead but mascara runs a close second. I have a separate drawer for my mascaras!

  8. 1. Blush Of The Day? -
    Nyx's powder blush in Angel

    2. Were the bulk of your birthday celebrations as a child celebrated outside of the home? Did you open presents in front of everyone or save it until later? -
    Most of mine were at home, but I can remember a couple at the YMCA pool (hardly anyone came, it always snowed) and one at the skating ring (coolest party ever! Too bad hardly anyone showed, lol.) I always opened mine at the party... I always thought that was the normal thing to do...

    3. Do you consider the color of your clothes when choosing what makeup to wear? - Yup! Unless I'm picking up on an accent color, I won't match my clothes with my eyeshadow.

    4. When is your birthday (Month and Day only)? And is there anything special you want this year fro your birthday? -
    December 19. And not anything in particular. I'm turning 20, so hopefully I'll come up with something good :) I would want to take a road trip, but in the middle of December, it's just too hard to do.

    5. What kind of HOOR are you (Lipstick, Eyeshadow, Foundation, Blush, Specific Color) and what was your most recent purchase in your HOOR category? -
    Lip balm/ lip gloss. I got in a package yesterday from Tokyo Milk and oh my lawd, their lip elixers are phenomenal. The bon- bon lip balms are great, too, and the packaging is adorable beyond belief.

  9. 1. BOTD: cream blush from fresh memoirs of a geisha palette, but its mostly gone now since I just got back from a fitness class

    2. I had a mixture of at home birthdays and chuck e cheese type birthdays, but they were always themed. We opened presents in front of everyone still, but my little brothers partys didnt include that (he is now 14).

    3. Sometimes I take into account the color of my clothes but mostly just to make sure that I'm not clashing.

    4. My birthday is Oct 24. I dont have a list yet but I asked my parents for new snowboard boots since mine broke on my last trip (RIP first boots I owned).

    5. I am a lipgloss hoor but have lately been including lipsticks in that category. My latest acquisition was chante lip chic in heirloom.

  10. 1. Blush Of The Day? - NARS Sin

    2. Were the bulk of your birthday celebrations as a child celebrated outside of the home? Um... my last birthday party was when I was 6, and it was at home, and I don't remember any others. My parents do have a home video of my 1st birthday party though, that was also at home. A friend of mine did throw me a surprise party at her house when I was 16, though.

    3. Do you consider the color of your clothes when choosing what makeup to wear? - Most definitely. Warms with warms and cools with cools. I'm actually pretty anal about that. I refuse to wear grey and brown together. Grey/navy/black or brown/beige. Navy can go with brown/beige sometimes and I love blush pink because it can go either way. (No, my wardrobe is not very colorful.) And, thus, taupe/grey/purples/pinks/plums or gold/brown/taupe/coral/warm pink/peach/orange. I even coordinate my eyeliner. Even if I'm wearing the same neutral taupe eye, it's Bourbon on warm days and Underground on cool days lol.

    4. When is your birthday (Month and Day only)? And is there anything special you want this year fro your birthday? - April 5th. And um... well last year's birthday was actually pretty awesome. This year, I think I would just like it to be sunny and warm so I can have a little picnic in the park. =)

    5. What kind of HOOR are you (Lipstick, Eyeshadow, Foundation, Blush, Specific Color) and what was your most recent purchase in your HOOR category? - I am definitely a blush hoor. Powder blush, mostly peachy-pinks and corals.

  11. 1. Blush Of The Day? - I think it's going to be Smashbox Blush Rush in Chiffon. I didn't put on makeup earlier because I'm going to a party and I want it to be freshly applied.

    2. Were the bulk of your birthday celebrations as a child celebrated outside of the home? Did you open presents in front of everyone or save it until later? - I had some at home and I had a few out. As I got older I had ones at home that had themes like the 50s, hollywood, and Hawaii/Tropical beach. I had a Chuck E. Cheese one and one at a bowling alley. I don't even like bowling, but in the advertisement it said that kids who had birthdays there would get a trophy! I really wanted that trophy, so I suffered through the bowling. I always opened presents in front of everyone; that's how it should be!

    3. Do you consider the color of your clothes when choosing what makeup to wear? - I consider whether the outfit is warm or cool and then I look at the vibe. If I am wearing a leather jacket and motorcycle boots, I might go with a smokey eye. If I am wearing a 60's style dress (I wear those a lot) I will do a cat eye. It's more about vibe than color though.

    4. When is your birthday (Month and Day only)? And is there anything special you want this year fro your birthday? - Mine is September 16th. I would love an HD camera to take better pictures on my bog and film youtube videos. I could also film any performances I have or ones my boyfriend has. I probably won't get it because my mom gave me her ancient digital camera that can't handle filming longer than a minute. She has given up on technology. At lest I'm not taking pictures with my macbook anymore!

    5. What kind of HOOR are you (Lipstick, Eyeshadow, Foundation, Blush, Specific Color) and what was your most recent purchase in your HOOR category? - I'm a lipstick whore, especially light peach-y pinks. Lately I've been stocking up on the recently discontinued Maybelline Color Sensational Lipstick in Pink Please because it's my favorite of all time. I found one at a Rite Aid that's a bit of a walk from my house, but I can't find it in store anywhere else. I actually ordered 10 backups from Target's website. I'm thinking that might have been too much...

    3. Do you consider the color of your clothes when choosing what makeup to wear?

    4. When is your birthday (Month and Day only)? And is there anything special you want this year fro your birthday?
    - October 27.. There isin't much I'd like.. (Of course, cause I want to sound modest, right?) Sooo umm.. Is a new (clean)couch considered something special? What about a pony? But really, anything Urban Decay is always nice.


    5. What kind of HOOR are you (Lipstick, Eyeshadow, Foundation, Blush, Specific Color) and what was your most recent purchase in your HOOR category?
    -I'm a MLBB HOOR. I'm also a taupe e/s HOOR, and a blush/highlighter HOOR. How much HOORING can one do? Not enough I think.

  17. Late to the party (grumble grumble) but here're my two cents:

    1- BOTD: nothing yet, i'm working from home today. i'll probably just fling some tinted moisturizer on later to go get groceries.

    2- we generally had parties at home and opened gifts in front of people. i am forever putting my foot in my mouth, but my mum and dad taught me to treat everyone (and their gifts) equally, and think of at least one nice response, which has stuck with me ever since. i do see the possible issues with present-opening, but i think it's a good way to teach graciousness, so i think when we have kids we'll do it that way.

    as i got older, i made the birthday cake myself, and i planned some of my parties as a teen, which ended around age 16 i think. that's about when i stopped having parties and started "hanging out".

    3. i almost always choose my clothes first, and then make my makeup compliment them, though i also sometimes choose clothes to compliment (not match) a look i have in mind for that day. when it comes to Occasions, i typically do a beautiful shaded neutral or a bronze smoky eye, while for parties, weekends, and the like i indulge my bright colours more.

    4. March 14. Last year i had my best friend visiting and my other bestie whom i never see came unexpectedly too, so it was the best day ever. this year i don't really know what i want or might do...

    5. Shadows, for sure, and also I love liner! I'm a SUCKER for gold shimmers and shadows, and plummy liners.
