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?

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

Re: Tuesday question?

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


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

French toast


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

Re: Tuesday question?

more sleep for sure and then i do my makeup on the go or just do the bare minimum 
2. How do you wake up in the morning: tea, coffee, exercise, others?

Green Machine Naked Juice and a good breakfast
3. How often do you check BeautyTalk? weekly, daily, hourly, havetabopenatalltime?

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!

Re: Tuesday question?

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

ohh man, as a parent, SLEEP is always the most important to me.  Sounds absolutely insane, but makeup isnt as important after little to no sleep!!
2. How do you wake up in the morning: tea, coffee, exercise, others?

My morning coffee or tea is necessary.  Even though I dont start work until the afternoon, I'm up bright & early to shuffle my kids to school, so a little bit of caffeine is definitely my friend!
3. How often do you check BeautyTalk? weekly, daily, hourly, havetabopenatalltime?

I only check BT when I'm working.  Its important for me to have balance in my life & since BT is work, I try not to fiddle with it on my days off Smiley Wink
4. Favorite/go-to dish, and recipe?

Pasta, fried/breaded chicken & a mushroom alfredo.  LOOOOOVE <3
5. What's your quick cheer me up? a food item, makeup item, perfume or?

Lipstick.  More specifically, my new YSL Lip Stains.  Instant happiness in a gold tube.

 

xo, Mia
