Tuesday Poll

Posted by Lipglossiping On July - 27 - 2010

From the lovely Karen’s Makeup and Beauty Blog!  Should *really* have been done on a Monday, but I’m rubbish.

1. Mood:

A little defeated, a little homesick, a little flat and a little under siege but ultimately optimistic.

2. Finish this sentence: Without makeup I would…

Have a lot more space and money. (but a lot less fun!)

3. What are some staple pieces in your wardrobe?

1). My ASOS Curve black cropped sleeve tops.  I bought 5 of them when they were in the sale at £3 each and they’re soooo soft and stretchy, true staples!

2). My indigo kickflare jeans…. I’m still in 2002, and I’ll probably die wearing my indigo kickflares.

3). BONDS underwear…. they’re an Aussie brand and not so easy to get hold of over here but I love them!

4. Three things you’d (probably) never guess about me:

I have Dermatographic Urticaria (painless), I’ve had one of my photographs displayed in the Tate Modern and I’m a freakishly strong believer in karma (but not organised religion).

5. What would you like to get done today?

Find 30 mins to change my nail polish, buy some makeup (I’m having withdrawal symptoms) and bite my tongue.

6. What were your favorite TV shows when you were a kid?

Knightmare, Willo The Whisp, The Trap Door and Round The Twist!

7. Can you skateboard?

I can stand still on one?

8. I really want…

A cup of tea and a ginger snap.

9. Do you like horror movies?

No, I hate ’em.  I get too affected by gory stuff… my imagination is vivid enough thank you!  I guess I like suspense type horror… but I can’t remember the last time I watched a great horror film built more on suspense than shock.

10. Weekly goals:

Travel home safely, build Leila’s confidence in taking her first steps and make the most of the rest of my holiday.

Would love to hear your answers to 1 or 2 of the questions (esp. #2 & #4).  Have a great week ladies xxx

  1. 2. Finish this sentence: Without makeup I would…
    Get more sleep!

    4. Three things you’d (probably) never guess about me:
    I was super duper religious for a period of time (Orthodox Jew), I broke my middle finger playing football (though I generally dislike sports)… and hmmm… this is hard!

  2. Jenni says:

    Dermatographic urticaria? Is that the one where you have a chronic rash? Without known cause?

    I am badly allergic to nettle-stings and that DOES swell up and itch. But that’s just the standard urticaria.

  3. Sophie says:

    you’ve got urticaria?! me too! Finally someone else with it! I’ve had mine for about a year and a half now so it’s moved into a different stage, chronic I think but it hurts like a bitch! xxx

  4. Rebecca says:

    I loved Round the Twist!!!

    Without makeup I would…be just fine because despite owning loads of it I rarely wear it! (I like nail polish though)

    I also hate horror movies!
