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?

#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…
