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?

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…

#ProjectPan June 2017

This month has been fairly tame with finishing things. I'm finding that I'm finally reaching the end of some of my powders and foundations. I'm also doing great with decluttering the lip collection. There's also a bit of face things in there, so hopefully a little something for everyone. 
Products I've Used Up: Dermalogica Pre-Cleanse (30 mL): This is truly life changing. Well, not really, but it took off my makeup exceptionally well and I would happily repurchase this again.  Charlotte Tilbury Magic Night Cream (1.5 mL): I liked how it made my skin feel, but if you over do it, it can still feel tacky in the morning, which wasn't fun. I'm gonna stick with my samples of serums and creams for now.  Maybelline Dream Pure BB: I'm not too fussed with foundations, so I got on with this fairly well. It's a light coverage, but with the right brush, it could be a medium coverage. It lasts a good while. My only complaint is that towards the end, it separated a bi…
