Putting Priorities in Order

Hey guys! Today did not turn out like I had anticipated it would. Firstly, I planned to upload a video that I had planned to go up last week. Then, I had to go out at some point and finish one of my 4 (5?) clearances that I need for my education classes. That's it. Just those two things needed to be done at one point in the day. Oh and maybe watch an episode of Game of Thrones (currently in the middle of season 3). And of course, cleaning up my room and catching up on my YouTube subscriptions and reading blog posts are always on the agenda. 
Well, two of those things happened. Before I even got out of bed, I read quite a bit of a fanfic I had started about a week ago. Then, I watched an episode of GoT, as planned. After the show, I had to feed the dog, then suddenly decided I had to continue reading, at least until my kindle died. But then it almost died when I was nearly 3 chapters before the end. So I told myself it was okay to finish the book. Before I knew it, it was nearly 1, and I was sorting out my plans for the rest of the day (which included a good 3 hours of me sorting out which UPS store I needed to head to and how I was going to get there). Losing track of time again, I had to quickly get ready and go out before the store closed, then went to my friends house to watch PLL. And here I am, home at 11, trying to explain my day before the clock strikes midnight. 
The theme of the day would definitely be learning how to stick to my priorities. Every once in a while, days like today, the do something but not really do anything days, are needed. But I feel as if my entire winter break has been like this. I need better will power to keep myself focused. The fact that most of my friends have already started their spring semester is making that point even more essential. But, after helping my friend with her speech, I'm feeling a bit more motivated and starting to snap out of the funk that is winter break. 
At the moment I'm feeling motivated and inspired to get on top of things. Let's hope this motivation stays when I wake up. 
Anyone else feeling like they are in a similar funk? Or any suggestions on how to stay focused?

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…
