Makeup and Beauty Blog Monday Poll, Vol. 742

Let’s do it, Monday!

So… what is a Monday poll?

Great question! Contrary to its name, it is not an actual poll, as with a button with a small click. This is a list of more or less random questions posted on this blog every Monday morning for the last quadrillion years (since 2007),

Monday Poll Back-to-School Fall 2022 Edition

1. Name one scent (or fragrance) that you wore during your school days.

In high school I was all about cover girl Navy and YSL Paris. I really like Exclamations and Debbie Gibson’s Electric Youth (wow, loopholes!), but I knew a lot of people who wore them so I didn’t go there even though I really wanted to. In college I wore Estee Lauder Pleasure, Clinique Happy and Juniper Breeze Body Lotion from Bath & Body Works. The funny thing I remember about Bath & Body Works “Flavor”. There was an unwritten rule that if your roommate wore a certain scent, you couldn’t, so even if you liked Country Apple, if your roommate claimed that first, you’d have to find something else.

2. Were you decorating your school locker?

I vaguely remember doing it in middle school and for freshman year in high school. I remember cutting pictures out of magazines and putting them on tape and thinking how cool I was, lol! I wonder if kids still do this.

3. What school activities did you do?

I geeked out in the band SO HARD, you don’t even know. Laugh out loud! I was on the high school paper even during my senior year; Honestly, it was nothing that no one took seriously. Nobody really cared about having a byline. You joined the newspaper because you got an extra lunch period!

4. How often did you go to school by bus?

I took the bus during my first few years in high school, and man, that was some scary sh*t. Public school transportation will teach you things a lot faster. It was like “Lord of the Flies”, no joke. I was quiet and shy and insecure, but luckily I had friends you didn’t mess with, which helped me get through that era without any major incidents.

5. Did you go to your high school reunion?

Nah. Didn’t feel the need. My friend Cindy still keeps in touch with a bunch of people from that era, so if there’s any news, she’ll let me know what’s going on.

6. Describe your high school hairstyle in five words.

Big, curly, hard, time consuming.

7. Your High School Makeup Essentials?

Corn Silk Pressed Powder (remember?), Coty Airspun Loose Powder, All Liquid Foundation that was too beige and turned my skin gray, Revlon Toast of New York Lipstick and Cherry in Snow Lipstick, Wet ‘n’ Wild 666 Lip liner, Clinique lipstick and blush…

8. How worried were you about pictures on picture day?

Probably too worried. Laugh out loud! I remember paying attention to potential “looks” for weeks.

9. Some advice for school goers this fall?

When you’re taking school photos, remember to apply some powder to remove shiny spots. Plus, your school years go by faster than you think! Try to enjoy this season in your life as much as you can. It won’t last forever.
