10 Questions with Polish Insomniac

Continuing with my blogger interview series, today I've got a fun interview with the lovely Jess (or as many of us lovingly refer to her: jbrobs) from Polish Insomniac. Jess and I have known each other for a while now and I'm just absolutely obsessed with her blog. Not only are her swatches amazing, but she's one of the sweetest people you will ever meet. Kind, funny, generous and thoughtful, she's one of those online friends that I wish I could hang out with in person!

1) Why did you start your blog?
I found out I had more to say than could fit into 140 characters!
2) What are your favorite high end brands?
Chanel and Illamasqua
3) What are your favorite mass market/drugstore brands?

Definitely Rimmel and WnW.  Revlon is up there too!
4) Name three of your Holy Grail products.
Urban Decay Primer Potion (I ran out and I have been using TFSI - It's just not the same!!!)
Kiss Me Heroine Make Volume & Curl Mascara
True Blue Spa Grin & Bare It Body Lotion
5) How would you classify your personal style?
Laid back chic. Example (NOT MY POLYVORE!)

6) What's your favorite thing about having a blog?
When I find out that people are just excited about what I post as I am!  I used to answer every single comment, but lately can't keep up!  But I do read them all - they mean so much to me!

7) What non-beauty-related websites do you visit on a regular basis?
I am hooked on Pinterest.  It's an addiction.  I like to browse every night around the same time.  Right around the time I discovered Pinterest I was also planning how to set up my office/nail polish room in our new condo.  I found so many great new blogs because of it!  My favorites are and

8) What's your favorite television program?
Um, one?  I am a television whore!  I love, in no particular order
Pretty Little Liars
The Secret Lives of Chloe King
Monday Night Football
Sunday Morning Countdown (ESPN)

9) Who is your celebrity crush?
Ohmigawd Josh Dumel, especially in any of the Transformers movies!!!

10) If you didn't have a blog, how would you use that extra time?
Watching more football, reading more books and following more blogs!  I used to be a real bookworm, but since I discovered nail polish  I would rather spend my money on that than books!  And I just can't focus during football games anymore, I am always checking my phone!  I have my Google Reader, StumbleUpon, Twitter, and Facebook at my fingertips the whole time.

Thanks so much, Jess! And good to know I'm not the only one who multitasks on the phone while watching TV. :)


  1. I love Jess! Pittsburgh misses you, girl ;)

  2. I am such a fan of Jess. She is so talented and one of those beauty bloggers that inspire me to keep going and try to improve myself.

  3. Thanks for all your kind words, G! xoxo

  4. BlushingNoir: Me too. :)

    Kimmi: I totally agree!

    Jess: It was my pleasure, girlie.

  5. I love her blog! I don't think I've ever met someone who loved both Pretty Little Liars AND football, haaaaa! That one made me giggle, she's a well rounded gal :)
