Internet Friends are Awesome

Hey guys!
Today was a little catch up and cleaning day. I am not participating in any Super Bowl activities because I'm not a big football fan and I honestly don't even know who is playing. Besides that, today I received a little New Years/Old Christmas card from my friend Rena. It made me so happy that I'm going to explain my internet friend journey and how they are so awesome. 
First off, I'm a very lucky girl for finding such amazing friends through the internet. A little website that I have been obsessed with for almost 4 years is Tumblr. If you don't know what Tumblr is, it's basically a social media site where you blog about the things you like and don't like (my blog on there mostly consists of pictures, videos, and audio posts, with the occasional motivational phrase, quote, or little rants here and there)
Tumblr, like almost every social media platform, has this messaging system. One day I decided to be the nosy person I am, and ask one of my favorite bloggers about 20 questions based off of a mass question post. She answered me right away, and since it was probably my 50th time asking her a question, she must have noticed me enough (as if I hadn't reblogged and liked nearly every single one of her One Direction posts) to ask me questions from the same post and then followed me back. This was the start of a mutual asking friendship whenever one of these posts came up. A few months later, we started to talk about things in our everyday lives and she soon became an internet friend as we talked nearly everyday. 
Following her long enough made me nosy enough to follow her internet friend from Sweden (always referred to as the Swedish Bestie). So as you expect, me and this girl from Sweden quickly became friends and we dubbed ourselves the "power trio" on Tumblr since we all bonded on liking One Direction (especially Louis). 
Sometime in between talking to both of them, one of my friends from home decided to show me the wonderful world of YouTube and vlogging and blogging and the YouTubers that I call the "Brit Crew", which is basically Zoe Sugg  (Zoella) and all of her friends. This then lead me to creating a fan account on Twitter for this wonderful group (which is no longer a thing as I switched it into a general account for the internet). Through this account, I made friends with Rena. 
All three friendships are just as strong as my friendships from people in my hometown. They were both created in the same way, a bond over something in common. When you find the right people, then tend to stick around no matter what, in real life, or the internet. 
One pro of internet friends is also a con (probably the only con) and that is time zones. They suck. But also come in handy when you can't sleep because they are most likely still up as it's either morning or afternoon for them. Okay I lied, another con, is that because of time zones, you never see them, like in real life. But one day I would like to meet all of my internet friends. 
Basically this is all a rambly post about how I found a great experience with internet friends being close enough as my real life friends and how I'm thankful for all of them being in my life and knowing I can always count on them. They are also so supportive of me, which means the world. 
Mushy rant over. Have you ever made an internet friend? I'd love to hear your stories!

#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…
