Beautiful Chaos

Hey guys!
Just the other day, I spent the majority of the read reading Beautiful Chaos, the third book in the Beautiful Creatures series. My kindle told me that when I first picked up the book to read in the morning, I was already about 20% through. This was just me slowly reading a chapter or two a night for a few weeks. The beginning of books always are a bit boring to me as it's just a set up of what's going on and what the problem is. 
I tend to go through books relatively quickly and I need to learn how to pace myself so that I don't go broke from reading so many books. This book was no exception. I didn't realize how quickly I would get lost in this book. Usually I don't stay glued to a book before the climax, but this book had me glued 20% through, and when I go through a book that fast, I need to talk about it. 
If you haven't read the first two books in the series, or seen the movie of the first book, the series is your standard YA fantasy book. As typical as it is, I get glued every time. Along with the mortal world, the Beautiful Creatures world includes Casters, which I can only describe simply as witches. They each have a certain power, and for this one particular family, on the girl's 16th birthday, they find out if they are a Light or Dark caster. Lena turns out to be an exception in many ways. Ethan, Amma, and Link, are all seeminly normal mortals who end up tangled in Lena's world and the series is based around her 16th birthday and the aftermath. 
I think I liked this book the most so far, as I read it the quickest, because you learn even more about the Caster world. It was just very intriguing and gripping. Not necessarily a lot of cliff hangers, but more of a curiosity of how things will end. The book itself sort of ended in a cliff hanger, which I have mixed feelings about, but overall, it was a very good book. 4/5 stars for me!

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…
