Make-up and Magnificence Weblog Monday Ballot, Vol. 798

So…what is the Monday Poll?

Excellent question! It isn’t, contrary to its name, an actual poll, like with little clicky buttons. It’s just a list of more or less random questions I’ve been posting on this blog every Monday morning for the past quadrillion years (since 2007).

1. Where were you on September 11?

I was living in San Francisco with a roommate. It was early in the morning, and we were getting ready to go to our jobs when we heard about the Twin Towers in New York. We had very little information other than what we saw on the news, so I decided to not go into the downtown office that day because I was too afraid of taking public transportation. I stayed home, called my mom, who was already at work in downtown SF, and had her come out to my place in the Outer Richmond because I didn’t want her getting onto BART until we knew more of what was going on.

2. One nice thing that happened to you this morning?

I walked Connor to school and we talked about crafts we could make as Halloween decorations.

3. What’s the oldest car you’ve ever ridden in?

My friend Alex in high school and I took a swing dance class together our senior year. He would pick me up for class in his Dodge Dart from 1972, LOL. I wonder if that car is still running!

4. Pick one — a sweet or savory treat?

I’ll go with the sweet treat, so I can balance it out with a cup of coffee!

5. What are some of your makeup heavy hitters?

Anastasia Brow Wiz pencil, Chanel Les Beiges Bronzing Cream, MAC Mineralize Skinfinish Natural Powder, Laura Mercier Corsica Tinted Moisturizer Blush, Hourglass Veil Retouching Fluid and Dior Backstage Concealer. When I find things I love, I tend to stick to them!

Good morning, sweet girl. How are you? I’m OK so far. This morning, I thought it might be a good time to explain what happened on September 11 to Connor in case she heard about it in school today. I used the simplest of terms and tried to focus mostly on how it felt the world as we knew it had shifted. Anyway, it feels so far away, yet there are so many details about that day that are so clear to me still.

I hope your day is has been peaceful so far and that you’re feeling safe and loved.

Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,

Karen
