Lunch in Town

Hey guys!
On Tuesday, my friends and I had our usual PLL night gathering. The tradition started over the summer and we each would cook dinner and eat before or during the show. Once school started, the weekly gatherings were postponed as we all go to different schools and sort of started up in the winter. Now it's more of a catch up and try to make dessert while we try to understand what's going on in the show. Nevertheless, Tuesday was a special gathering as we made birthday cupcakes for our friend who was turning 21. 
These cupcakes are pink velvet and tasted delicious! everything was store bought and we just had to make the cake and decorate them, but we had fun trying to figure out who had the neatest handwriting to write on the cupcakes (some were bound to be mess ups). I was very proud of my R as it was the neatest letter at that point. 
These cupcakes were a surprise to our friend Kate and then on Wednesday after lunch, we gave them to her (all jumbled up since we didn't plan out how they would be transported and ended up using several containers). 

But, for lunch, we decided to try out The Side Bar in West Chester. My family had raved about the burgers, and although it sounded appetizing, I went to look at the menu before hand and first saw a picture of their Southwest Shrimp salad and my mind was made that I had to try it. 
It was spice galore, but in an amazing way. The salad is a mix of spicy shrimp, red onions, cheese, tomatoes, and black beans with a spicy dressing that I forget the name of. Avacados were on the side and the combination of it all was delicious. It may just be the new to-go spot for lunch or dinner gatherings.

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…

#ProjectPan June 2017

This month has been fairly tame with finishing things. I'm finding that I'm finally reaching the end of some of my powders and foundations. I'm also doing great with decluttering the lip collection. There's also a bit of face things in there, so hopefully a little something for everyone. 
Products I've Used Up: Dermalogica Pre-Cleanse (30 mL): This is truly life changing. Well, not really, but it took off my makeup exceptionally well and I would happily repurchase this again.  Charlotte Tilbury Magic Night Cream (1.5 mL): I liked how it made my skin feel, but if you over do it, it can still feel tacky in the morning, which wasn't fun. I'm gonna stick with my samples of serums and creams for now.  Maybelline Dream Pure BB: I'm not too fussed with foundations, so I got on with this fairly well. It's a light coverage, but with the right brush, it could be a medium coverage. It lasts a good while. My only complaint is that towards the end, it separated a bi…
