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?

Monthly Empties | April 2018

This month I'm trying hard to just let things go, especially if I've had it for a long time. I feel like I went through a lot of skin care, which is typical, but I also feel like I went through my fair share of makeup bits as well! I always feel like I don't use things up, until it's the last week of the month and suddenly I'm running out of everything. Here's the things I've used up over the past month...

Lush Lip Scrub: I am not really a lip scrub person, only because I feel that lip balm is just fine. Plus, I'm super lazy/forgetful with extra steps, so I definitely neglected trying to use this lip scrub. Technically a lot is still there, but it's expired and solid as a rock at this point. I've never used a lip scrub before, but this was nice! It exfoliated and tasted great and that's all I really care about. I probably won't repurchase this as I won't use it enough in time.

#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 October 2017

Of course as soon as I barely run out of anything last month, this month I'm running out of everything!
Products I've Used Up:

Zoella Beauty Ginger Cream: I got this during my winter vacation in London, where I went on a Superdrug hunt for any Zoella Beauty product I could get my hands on. This lotion is part of the winter collection, and was part of a set. I am not the pickiest with lotions, but I compare all to my holy grail, Bath & Body Works lotions. With this, a little went a long way. It wasn't a thick formula, and yet it was a crazy amount of moisturizing goodness in such a small amount. Super impressed. The scent itself was a bit too sweet at times, but the smell is definitely just like a gingerbread cookie. 

Batiste Original Dry Shampoo: LOVE the original! Probably my holy grail dry shampoo, even better than the Not Your Mother's one. Sucks up all the oil. No white residue. All good things, all good things...
Living Proof Restore Perfecting Spray (0.5 oz): I p…
