Makeup and Beauty Blog Monday Poll - April 18, 2011
I’m taking some break from studying for finals. So, I thought what better things to do than answer the Monday Poll. Anyway, here we go!
Mood: Not that bad. Aside from lots of studying which gets a little tiring after a while.
Do you like wearing white in the spring/summer months? Not really. I mean I wear white all year round. It doesn’t really have anything to do with the seasons.
How do you get yourself out of a bad mood? Normally I just go to bed. If that’s not an option, I try watching some comedy TV series, such as Cheers, Wizards of Waverly Place, etc.
Do you remember the last time you used a hula hoop? Way back when. I think it was when I was in elementary school or something.
What’s your favorite place to buy makeup? MAC at Robson or Sephora at Pacific Centre or online.
Did someone teach you how to shave your legs, or was it something you figured out on your own? It was something I figure out on my own since things like shaving wasn’t exactly things that you talk about with other people publicly.
A fictional TV character you’d like to hang out with? Blair Waldorf from Gossip Girl. She’s a very well-developed character with a lot of dimensions. Aside from that, I mean all the shoes, clothes, makeup, not to mention networks that she has. It’s mind blowing.
Solid perfumes: yea or nay? Why not? I mean they’re easier to travel with in comparison to the liquid ones.
An article of clothing in your closet that you NEVER wear? I think I’ve worn everything in my closet at least once…so…nothing?
Weekly goals: Finish all my finals and start cleaning up my room/packing up my things.
“You can kiss your family good-bye and put miles between you, but at the same time you carry them with you in your heart, your mind, your stomach, because you do not just live in a world but a world lives in you.”—Frederick Buechner
It’s been a while since my last tag post. I’ve been quite busy with college/university. But, I’m really looking forward to some down time. Anyway, have fun reading the tag!
What do you order at Starbucks? Depending on the weather. When it’s hot, I would go for a tall Double Chocolaty Chip Frappuccino with raspberry syrup and no whipped cream. When it’s cold and it’s near Christmas, I like to get the tall Peppermint Mocha and, again, no whipped cream.
What’s one thing in your closet that you cannot live without? Dark blue skinny jeans and, if I can cheat and add another one, a black blazer. You can definitely dress up or dress down with just those two items.
What’s one thing that most people probably wouldn’t know about you? I am much younger than you think. Wait, that doesn’t count. I guess it would be the fact that I have never own a pet in my entire life. Yeah, my parents don’t like them so they don’t allow me to own any pet which is why I have a gazillion stuffed animals (the fluffy kinds that you can hug) at home.
Name one thing that you want to do before you die There are lots of things I want to do before I die. But, one thing that really stands out is definitely traveling around the world. I’ve been to Europe a couple of times but there are some places that I didn’t get the chance to visit that I would’ve liked to. I would also like to travel to Korea, Japan and Australia.
What’s one food that you cannot live without? None that I can think of. I eat just about anything. I’m not that picky with food.
What quote/phrase do you live your life by? I live by lots of different quotes/phrases. I guess the most recent addition to my quote book is by Robert Herjavec. It goes like this: “work hard, have fun, be nice, play fair, dream big!” Another one that stands out at the moment is “take things with a grain of salt.” Don’t just blindly trust everything you see or hear.
What do you like and dislike about the YT community? I like the fact that on YouTube you can share just about anything you want. However, sometimes, I find people who may not agree with other people’s opinion tend to attack those people’s opinions and saying that they’re not nice people or they’re ugly, etc. It’s just an opinion. It’s their choice to say whatever they want. So, just like people let you write whatever you want, leave them alone. If you want to say something, say something constructive.
What’s your number one most listened to song on iTunes? Let me check…It’s by Ahmir (from YouTube) called Come Back. Wow, that’s a surprise. However, I do like that song.
What kind of style would you define yourself as having? Classic, chic and sophisticated.
Favorite number: Don’t have one either. But, if I am forced to pick it’ll be either 7 or 8.
Two hobbies: Reading books and singing/playing musical instruments (i.e., piano or violin).
Two pet peeves: When people don’t show up on time and when people talk behind your back.
Guilty Pleasure: First of all, why is something a guilty pleasure? If you like to do or eat something, why do you have to feel guilty about it? As long as it doesn’t hurt anyone, why should you feel bad about it? So, I’m not going to answer that question.
You may know him from Dragon’s Den or Sharks Tank or you may not. I had the pleasure of meeting him for a seminar and I have put together a list of things that I think everyone could learn something from. So, without further ado, let’s get started with the list!
"If you can be the boss of yourself, that’s when you have true wealth." It means don’t owe anyone any money. It doesn’t mean you can’t borrow money from other people. If you do borrow, pay it off as fast as you can.
Everybody lies. Now, I don’t want to sound like Dr. House but it’s true. People lie because of a million different reasons. There will always be information asymmetry. BUT, it doesn’t mean you have to be mean about it. Remember that people want to be led NOT managed.
Believe in yourself.
Find something you’re great at and become world-class at it. When you have something you’re great at, the money will come to you. Love what you do and continually want to be better at things you do. It’s all about what have you done in the next 24 hours that’s better than the person next to you?
"Humble-Arrogance" Stand up for yourself and communicate your thoughts, visions, and values. There is a fine line between confidence and arrogance and it’s called humility.
Be committed. It’s not about your failure, but how long it takes for you to get back up again. When you’re young, there is one thing you have that’s called time and you have lots of it. So, keep going!
Think long-term. In this world, there will always be uncertainty. Especially in business. You don’t control anything in life except your reaction. Be proactive because things changes all the time.
Know where you’re going. Bring a compass. You should always know what your end goal is even though it will constantly change. People often overestimate what you can do in one year but they tend to underestimate what they can achieve in ten years.
Always have multiple plans. "Yesterday was a million years ago, tomorrow is a promise, all you have is right now."
"Work hard, have fun, be nice, play fair and dream big!" said Robert Herjavec.
