Monday Questionnaire

Soooo this has been a long blog hiatus! I’m back at school for the year and classes and assignments have meant many sleepless nights which unfortunately leads to a lack of blogging. But excuses aside, I’m back and although I haven’t made nearly as many posts as I would have hoped (how have I still not made a post on my trip to Alberta!? Is it too late for that now?) I want to get back into the swing of things. And what better way than to start off the week with a Monday Questionnaire! Questions provided by one of my favourite bloggers Amarixe


1.) Mood:
Anxious for the week ahead. The semester is quickly drawing to a close meaning the second round of midterms and term paper deadlines are right around the corner. I’m also slightly worried how bad Hurricane Sandy will hit both my University city and my parents house. There are some pretty large trees near both my homes so I’m hoping the winds won’t be enough to blow them over.
2.) On the topic of Hurricane Sandy, are any natural disasters common where you live?
I live in Ontario, Canada which is inland and away from many natural disasters. However Southern Ontario is going to feel some of the affects of Hurricane Sandy with heavy rains and winds supposed to reach up to 100km/hr! Hmmm but what are the chances of the University closing because of the winds? 
3.) What is your favorite song at the moment?
Some nights by Fun. Some might consider it overplayed but whenever its on I can’t help but let it play.
4.) Current nail polish:
Essence – Modern Romance
I took my grad pictures last week (have some beautiful outdoor pictures in the Autumn leaves!) and thought this would be a great pinky nude that isn’t overtly distracting but at the same time isn’t a trend colour.
5.) If you could only use one makeup product, what would it be? 
Concealor. I have some redness and some discolouration. I think a nice even skin tone is the perfect canvas. After that I would probably choose blush and eyeliner
6.) Current outfit:
Just took a shower after coming back from the gym so I’ve got on my oversized residence t-shirt from first year and some PINK flannel pyjama bottoms.
7.) Are you good at keeping in touch with friends and family?
I’d like to think I am. It’s hard to stay as close when you go from seeing people everyday to once every couple weeks but good friends are worth the effort.
8.) Are you excited about any holiday collections this year?
I’ve been intrigued by a couple of the holiday nailpolish collections but they’re all kind of jumbled in my head so I can’t pick any stand out favourites. I’m in love with the dark black based shimmery green polishes a number of companies have come out with.
9.) The world’s most wonderful chef is at your home ready to fix any meal you desire– what do you order?
I think a great chef can really show their skill with soup, salad and pasta. However I would have to add some of my all-time favourites to round out the meal (although with all of these courses this is looking more like a feast!), you can’t go wrong with crispy fritters and pecan pie!
10.) Weekly goals:
Basically school, school, school. I’ve got a heavily weighted midterm next week that I need to start studying for, but I’ve also got a stack of journal articles I need to get through so I can start my term papers. In other words it looks like its a long week ahead.

Monday Questionnaire

I was always a HUGE fan of surveys and personality quizzes growing up so I love these things. This poll was taken from one of my favorite blogs (check out the link to see her answers)

1.) Mood: anxious for all the work I have ahead of me for the next 2 weeks but relaxed since my body is just getting out of ‘vacation mode’. I also just finished marathon-ing ABC family’s Greek (you can tell my brain is still on vacation), a show with some cliches but a lot of heart. I was a bit annoyed how a lot of the law school components of the 4th season seemed very legally blonde -esque
2.) Can you say the ABC’s backwards without stumbling?: Nope, not at all! I can only get through a couple letters before hesitating
3.) What is the closest green object to you?: a striped green face towel sitting on my desk
4.) Current nail polish: Joe Fresh – Wave. A light sky/robin’s egg blue shade (and a recent purchase!) expect a nail of the day post soon!
5.) What is your favorite song at the moment? Gotye – Somebody that I used to know (listen here) yes this one gets a LOT of radio love (I swear radio stations go on a continuous rotation of about 10 songs now) and the video is…strange but I can never seem to change the station or skip over this song whenever it plays
6.) Current outfit: red and brown moose shorts I bought in Banff with a simple white tank top. Just relaxing in bed so changed into some sleep/pajama friendly clothes
7.) What coverage of foundation do you prefer most: light, medium, full, or none at all? Light. I hate the feeling of makeup on my skin and I never want to look like I’m wearing a mask.
8.) What color are the walls of your bedroom? A sunny pastel yellow. Re-painted my room last summer (used to be a soft sky blue) and love how much instant brightness the yellow brings.
9.) What is your zodiac sign?  Do you think its characteristics represent you? I’m a Libra so my sign is the scale (aka balance). I think some traits really suit me but some are completely off. I can be very indecisive when making a decision but once I’m confident in my decisions I never stray from them. I’ve heard from a lot of people that I always appear pretty calm (balanced?) even when I’m completely stressed out on the inside which can be both good and bad.
10.) Weekly goals: Organization. Organization. Organization. I have some big deadlines coming up so I really need to get back into the swing of things (quickly!) to make up for my lost vacation time.

Monday Questionnaire

Always fun to switch things up once in a while! This weekly poll is one of my favorite staples over at If anyone else wants to do this poll I’d love to read some of your answers 🙂

Mood: pretty mellow but I’ve got quite a bit on my to-do list

2. Your favorite frozen treat? A tricky one but I love my ice cream in the summertime. In terms of a particular flavour, I’m definitely craving some Polar Paws

3. What energizes you?Too many to name! A workout, listening to dance tracks in the car and getting into the juicy bits in a good book are just a few

4. Last time you went to the beach?Made a weekend trip about 2ish weeks ago. Nothing better than the sea breeze and sandy toes to instantly put the mind in relaxation mode

5. What makeup or beauty products do you use to fight shine?I’ve got dry skin so shine has never really been an issue for me but you can never go wrong with some blot sheets!

6. What would you do if you had one extra hour of free time today? Go for a walk near the park or around the lake. Mind you this would only happen once the sun starts to set (hello humidity and dry heat!) but its the simple things that mean the most.

7. Have you ever bought anything after watching an infomercial?Personally no, but my parents have bought quite a few (graty, handy stitch, space bags). As a kid I used to be OBSESSED with the magic bullet commercial, seriously I used to watch that thing like it was a tv show!

8. Can you count how many times you’ve watched Dirty Dancing?Not a ridiculous amount of times probably 2 or 3. Now ask me about Clueless, The Wedding Singer or A Night at the Roxbury and its definitely a different story!

9. Heroes or villains?I love a good underdog story but there’s nothing better than a complex well written villain to move the plot along.

10. Weekly goals: Quite a bit, mostly house keeping things (getting notes together, writing some reports) but I have an aunt coming in town for a couple days so I’ll probably go on a bit of a cleaning spree in anticipation of her arrival
