Rainy Days Love To Test My Patience

Hey guys!
As you can probably tell from the title, it was a rainy day today. More specifically, an icy rainy day. Walking carefully through slush is always fun. It's even more fun when it's freezing and windy as well and none of your classes are cancelled. 
Something that I always struggle with on a rainy day is how to manage my hair. I'm a self proclaimed hair expert. I'm the go-to person in my entire family (cousins included) for when someone wants their hair done. I have a knack for it and I love trying out new styles (but sometimes my hands don't quite understand how to do some hairstyles on myself). 
Rainy days always test me with my hair. It's naturally curly-ish . Hair, I have learned, is hard to put into a simple category. Basically, I have a ton of thin hair (or probably normal type hair, I thought someone told me I had thin hair and that's why it tangles so easily...I could be completely wrong). My hair when i was little was definitely curly, but over the years, has had more of a mind of it's own. One side (the one with more hair) loves to be more curly than the other, but I never get those perfect curls that you normally associate with curly hair. I have that weird wave-curl in between hair. To put it simply, my hair does not cooperate with rain, or any humidity. It frizzes right up and all my hard work curling it vanishes. Think of Anne Hathaway in Princess Diaries before the makeover type hair. 
So what do I do with my hair when it rains? It's an ongoing trial and error because it always depends on the day. Most often, like today, I'll attempt to curl it, or some pieces, to give an illusion that I tried to tame my hair. Then, by the time I have walked outside and into shelter from the rain, I immediately regret my attempt at curling, and throw it up into a bun or pony tail. If I feel like it, and my hair is long enough, I will do some sort of braid and hope none of my other hair attempts fall out. 
Today's choice was a nice pairing of my "bunny eared" headband with a carefully crafted messy bun. 
What's your go-to rainy day hairstyle?

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…
