Early Bird

Hey guys! Not much exciting things happened today. 
I woke up early (6ish) and wasn't dead tired, so that's a little victory for changing my body clock to the time I want it to be, which in a perfect world, I go to bed at 9 and wake up at 5, but for now, I want to get into the habit of going to bed at 10 and waking up at 6. Half of my friends think I'm crazy, and the other half are trying to get on the same schedule. 
I would like to call myself both an early bird and a night owl (but more of an early bird). As a kid, my body clock woke me up around 5 every day (woke up with the birds), but as I got older, it went a bit later till like 7. I would fall asleep when my parents told me to (which was around 9) but now it's a bit closer to 11 on average. 
I also have the potential to be a night owl, which is much easier when I'm with others and talking. At a sleepover, I'll be wide awake at 3am while everyone else is falling asleep. Always the last to fall asleep and first to wake up...
Up until college, waking up early was no problem and if I needed to, I could stay up late on the weekends and still wake up around the same time everyday. But when college happened, my body was just like "what are you doing?". My roommate and friends down the hall were all night owls. Basically, hanging around a bunch of night owls turned me into one. One morning I woke up at noon! I picked classes that were later so I wouldn't feel so tired, but by the end of my spring semester last year, I had the idea that I wanted my body clock to go back on track to what it used to be. It was hard. Going back home it got a bit back to schedule since my family go to bed early but once classes started in the fall, it was back to being surrounded to night owls. Over winter break, I put my foot down and had it in my head a definite schedule that I would stick to and I think it's working pretty well (so far).
I think the reason why I wanted to wake up earlier is that I like the quiet of the morning. I also feel as if I get more done in the morning. Breakfast is also my favorite meal and the fact that I've been slacking in that department is making me upset. I think it also makes me feel more awake and eager to be productive and all that good stuff. Sleeping till late makes me always want to sleep, and as much as I love sleeping, I don't like to feel sleepy 24/7. 
I know this is a whole big ramble, but sleep is very important, and having a consistent sleep schedule is even more important. So, the big question is, are you an early bird or a night owl?

#ProjectPan September 2017

This past month, I've said goodbye to my red hair and reintroduced to the blonde life. I've also been surprised by using up various face products...
Joico Color Infuse Red Conditioner: THIS IS THE SOLE REASON MY HAIR HAD SUCH A NICE COPPERY RED HUE. Sorry for the caps locks but this stuff is the best ever if you have dyed your hair any shade of red. Even though towards the end of the month, the orangey bits shone through in the light, my hair had an overall redness to it that had everyone is awe. I swear it makes the red last longer or at least tone it beautifully. If I ever go red again, this will be the first thing I buy.
Living Proof Perfect Hair Day Conditioner ( .33 oz): I'm obsessed with this conditioner as well. Total splurge if I ever bought the full size but oh my I feel like my hair was thanking me for treating it with this conditioner. I truly had a perfect hair day after using this. My hair felt oh so soft and I couldn't have been happier!

#ProjectPan May 2017

Me oh my am I determined to get my lip products under control. It's basically me decluttering at this point rather than actually using, but these lip products I've had for a while, so I don't feel as bad. Also, to sum up the lip products, unless they stand out to me as not wearing well (fading unevenly, clumping oddly, etc), or the color doesn't suit me, I generally love/make the color work. 
I've also used up quite a few skin care products that I wasn't expecting to finish.
Things I've Used Up:
Joico Color Infuse Red Shampoo: I bloody love this stuff. I claim this is the thing that makes my hair stay red as long as it does. Not only does it have color-lasting powers, but it cleans your hair and actually makes it feel clean. Huge plus in my book. I'm still undecided how long I want to keep my red hair, but if I ever decide to keep it, or go back to red, this is the first thing I'm gonna pick up.
Cetaphil Moisturizing Cream: This was a sample that I foun…

#ProjectPan July 2017

As my stash somehow is larger than ever, despite my makeup ban efforts, I still only buy when I get those Ulta "free gift with any purchase" emails that sucker me in each time. I'm going to promise myself that unless I need a spare necessary product that I'm nearly out of, when I get those emails, I'll stick to racking up my lip balm collection.
What I've used up over the past month: Joico Color Extend Shampoo: At first, I didn't mind this shampoo. But after the glaze on my hair washed out, I started to hate this shampoo. It just doesn't feel like my hair is clean at the roots. Apparently this is a common problem with color friendly shampoo, so I'm not mad about it, but now that it's done, I'm excited to try other shampoos that will make my hair feel like I got it done at the salon after each wash. Living Proof Perfect Hair Day Shampoo (Sample): OH EM GEE. My hair finally felt like my hair again. I see people buy any and all Living Proof prod…
