VV Friday Poll: The Flower Edition

TGIF!

Welcome to the flower edition of my Friday poll! The photo above was taken with my iPhone, then I used my new favorite app called PicFX on it to create this peeling paint effect.

Flowers seemed appropriate this week since I got some yesterday, which I am SURE will be dead by next week. Oh also, April showers bring May flowers. :)

  1. How was your week?
  2. Up and down, but ended decently with me taking today off (to watch the Royal Wedding).

  3. Are you allergic to flowers?
  4. I have seasonal allergies in the spring, but don’t have any particular flower I know that I am allergic to.

  5. What’s on your nails today?
  6. China Glaze For Audrey

  7. What is your favorite flower?
  8. Peonies! A very close second are Tulips.

  9. What flower do you loathe the smell of?
  10. Not a fan of lavender unless it’s very light or mixed with something else.

  11. Do you wear flower scented perfume?
  12. Yes, flowery scents are my favorite. I love rose and gardenia in particular.

  13. What is your birth month flower?
  14. Rose.

  15. Are you good at planting (and keeping alive) flowers?
  16. Not so much. My mom has 12 million Rhododendrons and other plants, veggies and fruit and has “the green thumb”. I kill pretty much everything I plant by over-watering.

  17. Have I said the word “flower” enough here? :D
  18. Um, yes!

  19. Any fun weekend plans?
  20. Going to check out Hearst Castle Tours because we are taking a trip there soon, but not much else planned yet!

    1. How was your week? My week was pretty nice. My thesis advisor said some very supportive things to me, I got to spend time reading in Fort Tryon Park, and it’s finally not winter anymore!

    Are you allergic to flowers? No, thank goodness.

    What’s on your nails today? Brucci Bert’s Blue, which is a really pale, silvery-blue shimmer, almost a pearl. Very pretty and springy.

    What is your favorite flower? I love lilacs, peonies, and bird of paradise.

    What flower do you loathe the smell of? White lilies to me smell of nothing but funeral home.

    Do you wear flower scented perfume? Sometimes, but I’m a bigger fan of musks.

    What is your birth month flower? Apparently it’s carnation, which pleases me, because I always thought that carnations were terribly underrated.

    Are you good at planting (and keeping alive) flowers? No, I kills them. But I know how to make flowers out of glass beads that last forever!

    Have I said the word “flower” enough here? Impossible.

    Any fun weekend plans? Going for a pot-luck picnic on the Great Hill in Central Park on Sunday! Eating daal in the great outdoors…

  • April 29, 2011

    How was your week? It has its ups and downs, some sad news, some good news … you know.

    Are you allergic to flowers? Nope, thank god, I love flowers.

    What’s on your nails today? Seche New Orleans, which was just too boring for me so I put Jesse’s Girl Conffetti on top and it’s magic all over again.

    What is your favorite flower? Tulip, no doubt, all colours. Close second is Black Cala, that is actually dark purple and really gorgeous.

    What flower do you loathe the smell of? Hmm … I can’t think of any specific … but some do have a rather strong smell. I don’t hate any though.

    Do you wear flower scented perfume? I prefer the “fresh” ones.

    What is your birth month flower? Google says it’s Daffodil, I didn’t know there is such a thing as birth month flower. I find the coincidence quite incredible, since my grandma always planted daffodils in our garden, old and new appartment, so they are in my life since I can remember …

    Are you good at planting (and keeping alive) flowers? No, poor little things.

    Have I said the word “flower” enough here? Hehe, I haven’t even noticed until this question came up. Happens to me all the times. You shoudl’ve seen some of my blog entries before the edition. How many “nail polish”, “colour” and “application” words can I fit in one paragraph, it’s quite amazing.

    Any fun weekend plans? No. Well, I should say yes as a feeble attempt to make studying a lil’ bit more fun than it is. ;) Have a great one!

    What is your favorite flower? Lilacs – they looks so pretty and smell divine!
    What flower do you loathe the smell of? Lilies – they’re beautiful to look at, but the smell is stale and gross
    Do you wear flower scented perfume? Not really. I stick to a lot of sugary, sweet, and gourmand fragrances. I guess I like to smell edible…
    What is your birth month flower? I didn’t know this, so I had to look it up. Apparently it’s the violet.
    Are you good at planting (and keeping alive) flowers? Yes. I usually never have any trouble keeping plants and flowers alive. Even when I forget to water them regularly, they still survive. Very weird.
    Have I said the word “flower” enough here? No. Please say it again! :P
    Any fun weekend plans? No fun. All work. :( But I’m hoping it’ll pay off.

    1.How was your week? It was good I suppose, the weather here has been spotty but I’m lucky enough to live somewhere warm so even when it’s pouring rain it’s still gorgeous out!

    2.Are you allergic to flowers? Not that I’m aware of.

    3.What’s on your nails today? A franken my husband requested I make :P It’s a bright spring green base with gold glitter and flakes in it :)

    4.What is your favorite flower? Orchids and lillies!

    5.What flower do you loathe the smell of? I have to go with lavender too, I think lavender scented air fresheners ruined it for me…

    6.Do you wear flower scented perfume? I like a hint of floral in my perfume though apparently I prefer fruity overtones. I always thought I liked musky scents but I’m realizing now that’s not entirely true.

    7.What is your birth month flower? Crysanthemum

    8.Are you good at planting (and keeping alive) flowers? Not at all! If I don’t kill them my cat eats them. Between the two of us greenery doesn’t last long in this house :P

    9.Have I said the word “flower” enough here? Haha probably XD

    10.Any fun weekend plans? Don’t think so, just relaxing at home with my husband. We might be going to check out one of the castle ruins upisland with our neighbors but that’s not for sure.

    Have a great weekend!

    Ah, the flower edition, how fun!
    1. How was your week?
    Pretty uneventful, just waiting for this darn Escrow to close already.
    2. Are you allergic to flowers?
    Not that I’m aware of, I do get a bit of the ‘seasonal allergies’ as well, but I don’t know of any specific item that I’m necessarily allergic to.
    3. What’s on your nails today?
    Getting ready to put butter London’s ‘All Hail the Queen’ on my tips, haven’t decided on a toe color yet, maybe something bright pink for Spring.
    4. What is your favorite flower?
    Tulips, hands down. Although I have an appreciation for almost all flowers in bloom at any given time.
    5. What flower do you loathe the smell of?
    Hmm…. nothing really. I don’t like how roses have lost all of their smell so they generally don’t smell like roses anymore (although I wouldn’t wear a rose perfume or anything). And although it’s not a flower, I really don’t love the smell of eucalyptus…. nope, not a fav.
    6. Do you wear flower scented perfume?
    Generally no, I’m more of a citrus-y girl. Although I did recently pick up Coach’s new ‘Poppy’ scent, which I love and it doesn’t go super-flower on me. Funny that you mention gardenia, I can’t wear anything with even a tiny bit of Gardenia in it, it turns sickeningly sweet-flowery on me, which is too bad, as I like many perfumes which have it. My friend and I will try the same perfume on, and it will smell perfectly fine on her, and I smell like a flower shop exploded on me.
    7. What is your birth month flower?
    Had no clue, had to look it up: November = Chrysanthemum
    8. Are you good at planting (and keeping alive) flowers?
    Nope, I have a black thumb (except when it comes to aloe vera or Little Shop of Horrors plant, I mean bouganvilla, the one outside my front door grows like a weed, even though I neglect it like mad, and it then proceeds to block my doorway and attack all visitors. Pretty, but evil plant, I say).
    9. Have I said the word “flower” enough here?
    Nope, I flowerly believe that you could flower all over the flowery place and have a flowery good time with all of the flowers on your flower. (I truly have no idea what that would translate to)
    10. Any fun weekend plans?
    Not really, probably more packing and picking up a few polishes, because frankly… I just don’t have enough ;-)

    1.How was your week? Jet-lagged, humid, and boring.
    2.Are you allergic to flowers? No. I worked in a flower shop when I was 15.
    3.What’s on your nails today? BB Couture Ashes.
    4.What is your favorite flower? Probably Sterling roses.
    5.What flower do you loathe the smell of? Hmmm…I think gardenias.
    6.Do you wear flower scented perfume? Sometimes. I’m not a huge floral person for scents, but am certainly not anti-floral, either.
    7.What is your birth month flower? Googling…gladiolus or poppy. I learned something!
    8.Are you good at planting (and keeping alive) flowers? OMG, no! I am OK at keeping flowers in a vase (hence prior flower shop experience), but plants…no way. Me buying or being given a plant is just unfair to the plant.
    9.Have I said the word “flower” enough here? You can say it more!
    10.Any fun weekend plans? Nope. Just killing time tomorrow and then flying to my next destination on Sunday.

    1. How was your week?

    busy busy busy :)

    2. Are you allergic to flowers?

    Just their pollen.

    3. What’s on your nails today?

    Nothing, see below :)

    4. What is your favorite flower?

    Lilacs and violets. I have never been able to pick between the two.

    5. What flower do you loathe the smell of?

    Roses. That’s because my freshman year of college, my roomie used to wear Tea Rose perfume, and broke a bottle all over the floor. The scent seeped into the floor tiles and hung around, smelling staler by the week, pretty much until the end of the year. That was enough for me.

    6. Do you wear flower scented perfume?

    Yes. I’ve worn Lilac (if I can find one that actually smells like real lilacs) and Lily of the Valley. I have Amethyste right now which they say is made from the scents of purple flowers.

    7. What is your birth month flower?

    Jonquil. Ptui. I don’t like them.

    8. Are you good at planting (and keeping alive) flowers?

    Yes. I have grown African violets since I was in my mid 20s, so I have some experience with getting them to thrive and bloom. I have way too many now and am working on thinning the collection.

    9. Have I said the word “flower” enough here? icon biggrin VV Friday Poll: The Flower Edition

    Perhaps :) But it’s your blog, so you can say it as much as you like.

    10. Any fun weekend plans?

    Yes! I’m on vacation now, we’re going hiking in Zion National Park this weekend, so I haven’t bothered with my nails because I always get dirty and yucky when I hike. I’ll do them after we’re done, either in Essence Fairy Berry or my new Jesse’s Girl Confetti. Of course I brought nail polish along on my vacation!

    5. What flower do you loathe the smell of? *flowers that are neglected and smell, which can be any variety, carnations were once used to remove the smell in funerals so some lillies have an awful odor*
    6. Do you wear flower scented perfume? *no, LOL*

    8. Are you good at planting (and keeping alive) flowers? *I deal with floral design, so the flowers I have are either in floral foam or water, you have to make sure if you have flowers in floral foam to keep the foam wet, or the foam will suck out the water from the flower and die*

    10. Any fun weekend plans? *well I saw the Royal Wedding, what did you think of her bridal gown and designer Steve Madden (who passed away last year,) and the second balcony kiss?
