Wednesday Questions!

i feel like we haven't had these in a couple days, so here they are for Wednesday Smiley Happy

 

1.) what is the most ridiculous amount of money you've spent on any one thing, that you felt was not worth it?

2.) since today is 9/11, do you remember where you were when you heard about the attack?

3.) whats one beauty product you love, and you are surprised when other people say they don't like?

4.) Do you have a pandora bracelet? if so, what's your favorite charm?

5.) Best kind of bubblegum?

6.) Pick one! Fall or winter!

 

1.) Over the weekend i went to teavana and i found a teapot that i loved, the guy went to tell me it was 85.00 plus tax, i ended up buying it...as i was walking to my car i thought what a bad purchase it was an returned it right away lol 

2.) i feel like i'm much younger then everyone else on here, but i was in 3rd grade in class, everyone was really scared but i didnt really know what was going on.

3.) Purity Facewash Gel, its the only thing i can find strong enough to remove my eye makeup in one step. i've been using it for years and then i recently heard a bunch of you day you wernt a fan, i was surprised

4.) Yes, i have the wrap around leather one, and i have a charm my dad gave me with a crown that says my princess on it Smiley Happy

5.) I liked big red when it was around, i can never find it anywhere anymore.

6.) Winter! 

Re: Wednesday Questions!

1.) I tend to be careful with spending but I'm sure there was a pair or two of shoes along the way.

 

2.) I was home and then calling my boyfriend (now husband) but the phones in the newsroom were slammed and I couldn't get through for hours.  Didn't see him for a couple days because of the non-stop coverage.

 

3.) Vaseline/petrolatum.  It gets a bad rap.

 

4.) No.

 

5.) None.

 

6.) Fall, pretty colors, little snow.

Re: Wednesday Questions!

1. i can honestly say i have never spent a ridiculous amount of money on anything, i've always been a bargain hunter.

 

2. yeah i remember, i hate reliving it every year though, i'd rather focus on the healing.

 

3. Hope in  Jar moisturizer

 

4. i don't

 

5. Trident

 

6. Fall because its not too cold and its easy to put a very chic outfit together.

Re: Wednesday Questions!

1. The Urban Decay BoS 4. I was super excited for it and I've only used 1 color out of it. Smiley Sad

 

2. I was in the 1st grade and I was saying the pledge when the first plane hit the first tower. My dad was supposed to be on the plane that hit the North tower but he overslept and missed the flight. My mom couldn't get a hold of him until a few days later and was in hysterics.  My friend's dad was also supposed to be on the plane that hit the Pentagon (he was a flight attendant back then) but he was moved to the flight that was the day before.

 

3. Any of the Clarisonics. I love my Mia. It helps keep my cystic acne down and greatly improved the texture and reduced the hyperpigmentation of my skin.

 

4. I do not have a Pandora bracelet.

 

5. I love Trident. It's the only gum I chew.

 

6. Fall!! I love seeing all the upcoming trends and fashions from Fashion Week. I would love to go to both the Spring and Fall weeks just once.

Re: Wednesday Questions!

I am so thankful for you that your Dad overslept- that must have been so terrifying for your family, I can't even imagine.

Re: Wednesday Questions!

1.) what is the most ridiculous amount of money you've spent on any one thing, that you felt was not worth it?

Hmm, nothing stands out in my mind, although I seem to having a reaction to something in my recent skincare purchases--I'm so over this sensitive skin/weird allergies thing.  Not really ready to overhaul YET AGAIN
2.) since today is 9/11, do you remember where you were when you heard about the attack?

Yep.  Retail days (after college, while I was trying to figure out what to do with my life).  Opening manager at Limited Too at the Danbury Fair Mall in CT.  Didn't find out about it until almost 10 because my shift started at 8am and there was no radio in the store.
3.) whats one beauty product you love, and you are surprised when other people say they don't like?

So far, I've been impressed with Purity Made Simple, but a recent flare up of something is making me reconsider
4.) Do you have a pandora bracelet? if so, what's your favorite charm? 

I'm not really a huge jewelry person in general, so no.
5.) Best kind of bubblegum?

Was never into bubblegum
6.) Pick one! Fall or winter!

Fall.  I love the smell in the air, the colors of the leaves and the slight chill in the air without it being ridiculously cold

Re: Wednesday Questions!

1.) what is the most ridiculous amount of money you've spent on any one thing, that you felt was not worth it?  I've never spent anything significant on items that weren't worth it.  Like tashalicious, I am a total bargin hunter.  So if it is questionable, I'll wait. 


2.) since today is 9/11, do you remember where you were when you heard about the attack?  I was at work & got a news update from CNN.  I called my house to see what was going on.  We spent the rest of the day praying for a friend's (who is from NYC) family & friends in NYC.


3.) whats one beauty product you love, and you are surprised when other people say they don't like?  I can't think of anything off the top of my head.


4.) Do you have a pandora bracelet? if so, what's your favorite charm? Nope, I have a James Avery charm bracelet that my BFF and her daughters bought me after the youngest was born.  My 2 fav charm on it are my "Precious Aunt" & TX with a heart cut out. 


5.) Best kind of bubblegum?  Grape Bubblicious for bubble gum & big red for regular gum.


6.) Pick one! Fall or winter!  Fall - Halloween is my favorite holiday!

Re: Wednesday Questions!

1. I'm not sure... I carefully consider every big purchase before I make it; car, clothes, furniture, home appliances, makeup, skin care... maybe some of my designer shoes that I don't wear (Jimmy Choos, Loubs, Fendi, YSL...) since I hate heels. They are o pretty though Smiley Sad 

2. Yes, already mentioned it in the 9/11 thread... I was a freshman in college and I was driving to work when I heard it on the radio. My school was close to the city & we were quarantined for a few days due to air quality. 

3. NARS Orgasm, La Mer, UD primer potion in Eden

4. Nope, I tend to not fall into mass market trend traps

5. I don't chew gum... gum causes more germs to crawl in your mouth, but I always have mints on me. 

6. Winters can be brutal in NJ, so I guess fall. Although I tend to get sick more in the fall due to the constant change in weather and pressure. It was chilly the past few days & now it's in the high 80's & really humid. My sinuses are on full attack mode & it's not fun.

Re: Wednesday Questions!

1.) what is the most ridiculous amount of money you've spent on any one thing, that you felt was not worth it?

I'm not quite sure... I always make sure before buying something that I wont regret it. Maybe the total amount of money I've spent on drugstore makeup in all that I regret. Because literally almost everything I've tried from the drugstore I did not like. There are maybe 2 or 3 products but other than that, big waste of money cause I kept buying and buying from the drugstore and never got to test it out before buying them.


2.) since today is 9/11, do you remember where you were when you heard about the attack?

Yes, elementary school.


3.) whats one beauty product you love, and you are surprised when other people say they don't like?

NARS turkish delight gloss, many people have said they dont like the consistency or payoff.


4.) Do you have a pandora bracelet? if so, what's your favorite charm?

Nope.


5.) Best kind of bubblegum?

Any.


6.) Pick one! Fall or winter!

Fall, defiantly.

Re: Wednesday Questions!

1.) what is the most ridiculous amount of money you've spent on any one thing, that you felt was not worth it?

Well now that I know I can return regrets Ive been doing just that but I do feel a little weird returning stuff to Sephora :/

2.) since today is 9/11, do you remember where you were when you heard about the attack?

I was working at a Nursing Home I was 18 and I honestly thought it was the end of the world! So sad!

3.) whats one beauty product you love, and you are surprised when other people say they don't like?

Amazing Cosmetics Concelear and Hourglass Immaculate Foundation

4.) Do you have a pandora bracelet? if so, what's your favorite charm?

No pandora for me

5.) Best kind of bubblegum?

Orbit's Sweet Mint Smiley Happy

6.) Pick one! Fall or winter!

Fall!

Re: Wednesday Questions!

1. I can't think of anything. With something that is ridiculously expensive, I do an extreme amount of research before I buy it. Actually, I usually end up missing out on an item because I didn't just "throw caution to the wind" and buy it.

 

2. I was in the 4th grade. The TV was on in the classroom and I just remember being in shock while watching it.

 

3. Benefit Boo Boo Zap. It's a good spot treatment, but not a miracle worker. I guess some people just expect it to do more. I think if it did, it'd be way more that $16.

 

4. I don't own a pandora bracelet.

 

5. FRUIT STRIPE! This gum is a big part of my childhood. It's the first thing at comes to mind when I see the word "bubblegum."

6. Fall! I think fall has the best weather. It's not too hot and it isn't too cold. Winter is my least favorite season. I just don't like the cold or the snow and definitely not the ice!

Re: Wednesday Questions!

Yipes!  Stripes!

 

Loved that stuff when I was a kid!  Too bad it only tasted good for 2 minutes though.

Re: Wednesday Questions!

I loved Fruit Stripes gum.  It doesn't taste the same not though. Smiley Sad

Re: Wednesday Questions!

1. A dress (about $80) never wore it anywhere and don't think I will.

 

2. At work. It was on the televisions and all the radios.

 

3. I love Marc Jacobs Honey - but the reviews are mixed on BT

 

4.Hardly know what that is. Those things are expensive right?

 

5. Extra Desert Delights

 

6. Winter

Re: Wednesday Questions!

Theyre pretty expensive, i never buy my own charms i always receive them as gifts from my family. 

Re: Wednesday Questions!

1.) what is the most ridiculous amount of money you've spent on any one thing, that you felt was not worth it?  Right now, Clinique CC cream and Purity cleanser.

 

2.) since today is 9/11, do you remember where you were when you heard about the attack?  I was 19 and sophomore year wasn't starting for another two weeks, so I was home and asleep when the first plane hit.  My dad woke me up and I went into his room to watch the news...I was just in time to see the second plane coming in.  Then there was the news for the Pentagon and I distinctly remember Dad saying that the first plane wasn't an accident and there's likely another heading for the White House (after the Pentagon hit). Sure enough, there was the one that went down in the field.  We spent most of the day just watching the coverage.

 

3.) whats one beauty product you love, and you are surprised when other people say they don't like?  A lot of Clinique products, actually.  The skin care line specifically...it works well for my sensitive skin, so I don't generally mess with my skin care.

 

4.) Do you have a pandora bracelet? if so, what's your favorite charm?

 

I don't.  They're very pretty, but I can't justify that kind of money.  Not to mention the fact that the jewelry I *do* have is expensive, because I'm allergic to nickel.  I'd much rather spend that kind of money toward another trip to Hawaii or an eternity ring for our 10th anniversary in a few years.

 

5.) Best kind of bubblegum?  Most gum makes me sick, but Doublemint and Spearmint do not.  One of the sugars in the others is what does it, so if I do get gum (which is rarely) I have to read the ingredient label very carefully.

 

6.) Pick one! Fall or winter!  Fall, hands down.  Ashley's birthday, my birthday, Alyssa's birthday, Thanksgiving, and beautiful fall colors.  It's also not as cold as winter...just wet and rainy!

Re: Wednesday Questions!

1) I bought a designer purse in Paris, and realized when I got home that I could've bought so much makeup with the money that I spent on the purse

 

2) I was age 2 when we were attacked, so I don't remember at all. But I hear stories all the time about how my dad was at the airport in San Francisco that day, and his flight was cancelled. He came home and told my mom, who hadn't heard about it yet. She started freaking out, and yeah.

 

3) A lot of people like Naked 2 better than Naked, but I prefer Naked.

 

4) I don't Smiley Sad I do have a charm bracelet from a better brand though, and my favorite charm is a pink flower.

 

5) Double Bubble

 

6) Fall! Gets so cold here in PA in the winter.

Re: Wednesday Questions!

did your charm bracelet come in a little robin's egg blue box with a white bow? - i have one of those also, but all of my enamel charms are the blue and silver - then i have a gold one with just one charm, a heart-from my parents after i found out i had breast cancer - eight years clean and clear Smiley Happy

Spoiler
 

Re: Wednesday Questions!

i honestly don't know what box it came in, I got it as a gift 5 years ago and lost the box.

Re: Wednesday Questions!

1 - I spent 250 on a bag I cant even stand looking at right now >.< I have made many wrong purcheses in my day.

 

2 - I was in school, just got in to school actually & it was crazy, I think I was in 1st grade & I just remember we had to leave early. As soon as I came home, my older brother & me ran to our bedroom & we had these two huge windows in our room & we just stood there watching the smoke spread all over new york, (I lived in brooklyn at that time) it was very scary.

 

3 - Hmmm, havnt really crossed anything yet Smiley Tongue

 

4 - I do not actually! There not really my taste, Im not into charm bracelets actually.

 

5 - The hubba Bubba or whatever it was called, I literally stuff my cheeks with it till my jaw hurt Smiley Tongue

 

6 - Definitely fall!

Re: Wednesday Questions!

where is teavana?

1. 600+ on a pair of Manolos that i only wore once because i had to hold onto my sweetie's arm to walk; the heels are too high for my small feet-toe shoes would have been more comfortable

2. i was having coffee with my mother in my living room - she had come to visit for a week and was to leave that day - the gas lines were miles long and the interstate was closed, so i got to spend some more time with her

3. clinique anything - its not my favorite brand but they have a couple of things i really like

4. no Pandora bracelet, but several old school charm bracelets including the one while growing up with a charm for every event and trip-it is heavy

5.Extra Berrymint

6.FALL

Re: Wednesday Questions!

i don't know if they have them where you are, im in south florida, but its basically a gaint tea store and they have like beautiful tea pots and like hand blended tea that you can buy by the pound its really good

Re: Wednesday Questions!

1.) Hard to say...I've been ripped off so many times. For the sake of argument, I once bought a $40 electronic hair removal device that didn't work at all.

2.) Kind of. I know I was in my first apartment and found out when I turned on the radio or the TV that morning...I can't remember which. I remember seeing footage on TV of one of the planes crashing and my husband walking through the front door right then. His work let him out for the day. Most of his company's clientele were based in NY so they lost a lot of business.

3.) Can't really think of any.

4.) No, I find them extremely tacky.

5.) Bubblicious grape, hands down! lol

6.) Winter 

Re: Wednesday Questions!

1.) A membership to NutriSystem. I don't handle soy very well, what a catastrophe that was.
2.) I was 24, and on 9/11/2001 my now-husband and I set up our first big date around 1 am. 8 hours later the world turned upside down, but we kept our date or else the terrorists would have won.
3.) Some perfumes, but then I like things most thers find too strong and I dislike things others love because they're too fruity or floral.
4.) Nope.
5.) Big League Chew.
6.) Don't really get either in SoFla, but I like the Fall due to so many awesome b-days and fun holidays. Although I'll take winter in Paris any day!

Re: Wednesday Questions!

I agree with you on the south florida thing, we have hot half the year and hot and rainy the other half! our winter is a couple weeks long and thats at like 70!
