Tuesday question?

First time trying my hand at this, lol. Happy Tuesday, hope it's going well so far? Just curious:

 

1. When you are sleep deprived, which one is more important: 15min more sleep or makeup as usual?

2. How do you wake up in the morning: tea, coffee, exercise, others?

3. How often do you check BeautyTalk? weekly, daily, hourly, havetabopenatalltime?

4. Favorite/go-to dish, and recipe?

5. What's your quick cheer me up? a food item, makeup item, perfume or?

 

1. I ditch makeup for sleep.

2. I need hot tea on cold mornings, or else I'm permanently attached to my bed.

3. Ha, I have a tab open all the time so.....yeah.......

4. Granola, less sugar than storebrought and quick enough to throw together for friends gatherings when I don't have time to go out buy stuff (oats + seeds + dried fruits + honey + butter. 10-15min in the oven at 325F). For bdays, chocolate rum cake's always a safe bet.

5. A spritz of perfume or nice smelling facial spray always cheer me up....and desserts also helps.

Re: Tuesday question?

yes, not very good & high in sugar too

Re: Tuesday question?

1. When you are sleep deprived, which one is more important: 15min more sleep or makeup as usual? Haha, that was my situation this morning. Definitely 15 minutes of sleep. I just end up doing bare minimum makeup -- foundation, eye liner and lip gloss

2. How do you wake up in the morning: tea, coffee, exercise, others?
Usually nothing, but sometimes a cup of tea if I need a little bit of a jump start. I switch to coffee drinks only if I'm super sleep deprived!

3. How often do you check BeautyTalk? weekly, daily, hourly, havetabopenatalltime?
Almost daily!

4. Favorite/go-to dish, and recipe?
quesadillas with a side of pico de gallo, guacamole and sour cream. I *never* get tired of this!

5. What's your quick cheer me up? a food item, makeup item, perfume or? perfume!

Re: Tuesday question?

2. How do you wake up in the morning: tea, coffee, exercise, others?  Coffee

3. How often do you check BeautyTalk? weekly, daily, hourly, havetabopenatalltime? frequently during the day

4. Favorite/go-to dish, and recipe?  Chicken Milinase and chopped salad

5. What's your quick cheer me up? a food item, makeup item, perfume or?  Looking at pictures of my nieces that they took of themselves on my cell phone.

Re: Tuesday question?

1) Makeup as usual

 

2) coffeeeeeeeee

 

3) Every day

 

4) Spaghetti

 

5) Just smiling Smiley Happy

Re: Tuesday question?

1. Makeup & coffee & water. 15 more minutes usually ends badly for me, either I fall back into deep sleep or it makes me more groggy. I'm one of those people who can't take a cat nap. I need a good 2 hr nap to recharge. 

2. I wish I could roll out of bed & exercise, but I can't. After I take care of my teeth & skin I drink a nice LARGE, STRONG cup of coffee

3. All the time during the day. I multi task while doing work. In the evenings I only check once or twice. I hate going on the phone, so I stay away on the weekends. Catching up sucks, one day is ok, but more than 2 days & I feel like I missed os much

4. Sooooo many! Ukrainain food, Mexican, Italian, Asian. My friends call me the casserole queen because I can make one out of anything & make it taste good. Great for leftovers after a party. I like to expiriment when going to someones house, but it depends on what they need; baked pastry roll ups for apps, side salads, lemon squares with salt (even though I hate baking, this one's easy), mixed drinks- I make a mean white sangria! 

5. Alcohol! A nice glass of red or a Magners Cider usually do the trick. A hot bath, a run, seeing my parents dog, my honey... Depends on what's bugging me 

 

These were fun, engaging questions! 

Re: Tuesday question?

I agree, definitely great questions!

 

Another random #5...just bought some basil from the farmers market for pesto...my desk smells great now because of it!

Re: Tuesday question?

Yum I love the smell of fresh basil!

Whimsically yours,
Janine

Re: Tuesday question?

Come on by if you need a pick-me-up!

Re: Tuesday question?

What about lemon basil... mmmmm that smells sooooo gooooood

Re: Tuesday question?

1. When you are sleep deprived, which one is more important: 15min more sleep or makeup as usual?

realistically....sleep lol but I usually will sleep an extra 30 minutes since 15 minutes wont cut it for me

2. How do you wake up in the morning: tea, coffee, exercise, others?

Shower, coffee, makeup, second cup of coffee, hair, clothes, out the door

3. How often do you check BeautyTalk? weekly, daily, hourly, havetabopenatalltime?

daily!

4. Favorite/go-to dish, and recipe?

I recently discovered a new recie for buffalo wing cauliflower....YUM

5. What's your quick cheer me up? a food item, makeup item, perfume or?

All of the above...if I'm stressed I usually go for naughty food lol but if I am sad, beauty items make me feel better

Re: Tuesday question?

buffalo wing cauliflower? o.m.g. That sounds absolutely fantastic. I just searched for recipes and bookmarked. Totally making this next trip to grocery store *ignores my pimples*

Re: Tuesday question?

1. Ha! Sleep is the reason I don't put on makeup lol.

2. My radio wakes me up ;_; I HATE waking up arrrg
3. havetabopenatalltime Smiley Very Happy...
4. Err... take out! LOL
5. BLUSH =DDDDDDDDDDD

Re: Tuesday question?

Shocker on the Blush! I never would have guessed Smiley Tongue

Re: Tuesday question?

@beautytester (sorry I can't reply direct) there are seriously so good and easy! I made a huge batch and am going through it fast!!! Did you get the skinnytaste recipe as well?

Re: Tuesday question?

I did! Bookmarked! They look so delicious. It will have to wait a couple weeks tho, cuz my recent mooncake binge brought my weight up, I need it back to normal before I binge again on buffalo cauliflower. =P

Re: Tuesday question?

1. When you are sleep deprived, which one is more important: 15min more sleep or makeup as usual?

 - Definitely sleep!


2. How do you wake up in the morning: tea, coffee, exercise, others?

 - Ice cold water, then coffee

 

3. How often do you check BeautyTalk? weekly, daily, hourly, havetabopenatalltime?

 - Daily (at least)


4. Favorite/go-to dish, and recipe?

 - I'm known for fall-off-the-bone ribs (a real crowd pleaser and easy to do), but I find making mandu (Korean version of dumplings) therapeutic.


5. What's your quick cheer me up? a food item, makeup item, perfume or?

 - A new purse is nice retail therapy.  Anything dark chocolate is always a pick-me-up, and videos of really cute puppies and kittens bring a smile to my face.  I usually have an episode or two of Animal Planet's "too cute!" kept on Tivo.

Re: Tuesday question?

1) It kind of depends what I'm waking up for.  If it's the first day of something or I have a particularly important event then I'll do the makeup but almost always I pick sleep.

 

2) Coffee.  Though I recently had a bad experience with coffee (I drank a whole pot in about 10 minutes on an empty stomach and then spent the rest of the day throwing up) and so have been getting my caffeine from cherry coke zero.

 

3) If I'm going to work or class, usually once or twice a day.  On days that I'm home doing reading it can be 10million times a day depending on how well I'm concentrating.

 

4) tacos with veggie crumble instead of meat.  it's a people pleaser (even meat-eaters) and it comes together in like 8 minutes.  

 

5) looking at pictures of my cat or cats on the internet always gives me a quick pick me up.  so does changing my lipstick shade (unless i'm deeply in love with what i'm already wearing)

Re: Tuesday question?

1. Makeup as usual.  Those extra 15 mins are only going to make me want even more!  Better to just get up and deal.

 

2. Coffee, water, allergy pill.

 

3. Daily, not as much as usual lately.

 

4. Calling my mom and asking her to make chocolate chip cookies.  That is my favorite recipe and try as I might mine just don't taste the same as her's.

 

5. Buying something makeup related.  Bad habit.

Re: Tuesday question?

1. When you are sleep deprived, which one is more important: 15min more sleep or makeup as usual?

I've been sleep deprived for the past 30 years; I don't have an issue with getting up since I'm already awake.

2. How do you wake up in the morning: tea, coffee, exercise, others?

I'm awake when I get up.

3. How often do you check BeautyTalk? weekly, daily, hourly, havetabopenatalltime?

Daily.

4. Favorite/go-to dish, and recipe?

I prefer to fix a variety of dishes.

5. What's your quick cheer me up? a food item, makeup item, perfume or?

Crying.

Re: Tuesday question?

1. I rarely get more than 5 hours of sleep, I have a weird circadian rhythm; any extra sleep I can get I'll take.
2. Cuban coffee! 
3. When I'm home BT is open.
4. So many, but you can never go wrong with picadillo.
5. Perfume, definitely.

Re: Tuesday question?

1. When you are sleep deprived, which one is more important: 15min more sleep or makeup as usual?

I work two jobs, sing in two choirs and do martial arts, so sleep deprived is my normal state of existence.  That's why I hardly ever wore makeup until very recently--I needed to start wearing makeup to rationalize the sudden explosion of eye shadow palettes in my makeup drawer.  So the answer now is usually the makeup
2. How do you wake up in the morning: tea, coffee, exercise, others?

Depends- I try to start the day with a trip to the gym at least a few days each week, otherwise it's a hot shower and a glass of water before I go to work.  I've been scaling back on coffee, so I'm down to only 1-2 cups per week.
3. How often do you check BeautyTalk? weekly, daily, hourly, havetabopenatalltime? 

Since I found BT about a month ago, I probably check the site pretty close to hourly.  Unfortunately I have issues trying to actually respond from my cell phone, so I can't actually post anything until I get home (um that thread a while back about a cell phone app--yes, please!!)
4. Favorite/go-to dish, and recipe?

Lately it's been quinoa tabouleh salad.  Quinoa, cuccumber, tomato, onion (I use red), parsley, lemon juice, olive oil (I also add some fresh garlic)
5. What's your quick cheer me up? a food item, makeup item, perfume or?

chocolate

more sleep for sure and then i do my makeup on the go or just do the bare minimum

Daily and several times a day. I usually have the tab open all day and keep going back to it when i have a chance.
4. Favorite/go-to dish, and recipe?

I have no recipes because I am not a kitchen person unless I am eating in the kitchen. But my favorite go to dish is steak and rice. Its even easy enough for someone like me to make (sometimes lol)
5. What's your quick cheer me up? a food item, makeup item, perfume or?

A nice birght lip, clean hair or playtime with my beast (the last one is usually the best cheer me up!)

BTW by beast I mean my dog NOT a hot fireman! And playtime I mean tug of war not the other fun playtime (unfortunately) lol Smiley Wink

Re: Tuesday question?

1. Definitely 15 minutes more sleep! I am such a night owl that it's such a pain to get up in the morning...

 

2. With the most annoying phone alarm ever, and a cup of ice cold water, haha!

 

3. Daily! Sometimes more than once a day. It's become so addicting!

 

4. Mmmm I love shrimp fried rice, or a combo breakfast (bacon, eggs, hash browns, and pancakes...yumm!)

 

5. Swatching my eyeshadow palettes and my eyeliners!
