Happy Monday

So..what is the Monday Poll?

Well, it isn’t exactly a poll. It’s more of a constantly evolving (devolving?), somewhat random list of questions I’ve been putting out to readers every Monday morning for the past NINE (!) years. (It’s like a kickstart for your brain.) I’ve always enjoyed reading your answers in the comments, and I hope you enjoy reading mine. 🙂

1. On a scale of 1-10, with 1 being super chill and 10 being full-on meltdown, how much does the thought of cutting your hair freak you out?

It freaks me out a little…so about a 3. Like, I couldn’t handle a pixie cut right now. There’s just no way I’m emotionally prepared for that, but a spur-of-the-moment bob or a-line wouldn’t cause me too much undue stress.

2. Scroll through your pics, and tell me who was the last person you took a selfie with.

Hmm, let’s see… It was Connor Claire Bear a few nights ago (I sent a picture of her in her PJ’s to my mom and brother).

Before that, I took a pic with Tabs in my bed. He’s taken to sleeping next to me again at night… I think he’s getting a little more jealous of the baby.

3. While we’re on the subject of selfies, do you know what a “belfie” is, and have you ever taken one (no judgement!)?

LOL! Yes, I know what a belfie is, and no, I haven’t taken one. 🙂 But if I were 21, unattached and on the manhunt, it would totally be a different story, hahaha!

4. What would you like for lunch today? And for dinner?

I’d love a tostada salad from Blue Barn in Corte Madera. It’s my favorite salad in the world. Romaine, chicory chop, toasted corn, black beans, cherry tomatoes, jicama, scallions, herbs, pumpkin seeds, tortilla strips, white cheddar and chipotle-agave vinaigrette, OHHHHH!

And for dinner, a bowl of homemade tomato soup and a grilled cheese sandwich.

5. What are some beauty trends you’d like to see less of, and more of, in 2017?

Less: Contouring (so over it), and super sharp brow tails (although I’ll be the first person to admit I’ve rocked the look before).

More: Diversity, on so many levels. Like, I’d love to see a wider variety of makeup styles in glossy magazines and big brand social media accounts (is it just me…or is everyone on Instagram starting to look like the same drag queen?). I’d also love to see more women in their ’40s, ’50s, ’60s, ’70s and up represented. I mean…there’s no cutoff age for having fun with makeup, right? There’s no rulebook that says, “Oops! Sorry! You’re 60 now so you can’t play with blush.” It’s just makeup! And, of course, women with different skin tones and facial features.

We’re all so different and beautiful, and we should celebrate that sh*t. Often.

Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,

Karen
