Snowy Adventure

Hey guys!
Today me and my friends were all home (well I'm not, but my college is a half hour from home so I'm close enough) so we decided to catch up over a Starbucks date. 
It started out typical, us four girls having conversations with each other, talking over each other, just trying to catch up. We talked about what new mascaras to try and the best drinks and pastries at Starbucks (although I could only stare and drink my coffee since I gave up sweets for Lent). An hour into our little catch up, it started to snow. You never know with the weather, so we knew we had to leave as soon as possible. Around the same time, we decided that my friend Nicole was going to get her ear pierced and we needed to be on our way that second. 
Half way there, the snow really started to stick and get slippery, right when we hit the busiest part of the drive. Slightly scared for our lives, we drove as safely as possible, trying to navigate our way there as none of us had been to this mall before (or at least often enough to remember the way). 
Some how we made it to the mall but then we had to tackle the next hurdle, where on Earth the Piercing Pagoda was. And after looking at the map, and circling the first floor twice, we went back to the map and realized that it was on the second floor. During the same time, some sort of alarm was going off but everyone acted normal, so we ignored it, but it startled us every minute. 
Then we finally find Piercing Pagoda, but it was an actual store instead of the kiosk that we are used to, so we nearly missed it and would have spent another 10 minutes trying to find it. We quickly found the best earrings for my friend to wear and the whole thing was done in a matter of minutes. 
Then as we got back into the car, we had to figure out where to get gas and how to get back to my place to drop me off. 
The whole thing was definitely an adventure that took up most of the morning and midday (10-2). I had such a great time, and it's always the best when you have adventures with your best friends. We also figured out that not only do we switch conversation topics really easily, but that we managed to stay on the topic of names for the entire half hour journey back home. Truly a day I will always remember. 
What's the craziest adventure you had in the winter?

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…
