Favorite Store: AEO

So, I wanted to start a favorite store series. American Eagle is probably perfect to start out with since the majority of my clothes are from here... 

First, there literally isn't a thing you can't find in that store. AE has it all: tops, bottoms, skirts, dresses, jackets, shoes, jewelry, belts, undergarments..I could go on for ages! I think I own at least one thing from every possibly category at that store (or at least I did). My friends still joke with me about one day in middle school when we were comparing where we bought our clothes that we had on. I kid you not, except for my socks, everything else was from American Eagle and my friends got such a kick out of it. (And as I write this now, I'm all decked out in AE once again...)

Let's talk their top selection. When I first was introduced to AE, I was not too crazy about their shirts. I always felt like their tops and dresses were always hit or miss. But as I find my own fashion sense and find a happy medium with things and learn what shapes look best to flatter my figure, their tops are becoming one of my staples. AE recently came out with a new range of shirts (which the name escapes me right's along the lines of soft & sexy, maybe... or maybe they just did a new look with their basics, who knows...) and oh my do I love them! Definitely one of the softest shirts I own and like basics do, they can be fancied up or dressed down. Soft and practical? What more can you want..?
Their cardigans and jackets are just to die for! AE is where it's at for oversized cardigans. And the cardigans are in many styles and textures and there are so many color options I go a bit crazy when it's the end of fall..

I can't forget to mention their pants! This is what made me fall in love with this store. I just find that their jeans fit so perfectly, and they can be so stretchy and it's no wonder why I prefer my jeans over anything else. There is also a huge selection between the kind of fit and the wash (I prefer anything that includes "stretch", "extra stretch", and their favorite boyfriend jeans are my absolute favorite! Don't get me started on how much I love their jeggings...)

Skirts and dresses are something I'm still testing out. I know the skater style looks best and I can't believe how many different dresses and skirts are in that style. Of course that's not all that they offer, but it's what I look for. 

And I cant leave out all the other wonderful bits! The jewelry is always so cute! I have a ring from here that I got about 9ish years ago and there isn't a day that goes by where I'm not wearing it. I also love their necklaces and earrings! AE's shoes are always adorable! I love their flip flops so much that I end up wearing them out within a year, so that't my one little warning. Basically, the accessories are awesome! I could also go on about Aerie, but that could be another post to talk about that magical place...

What is your favorite kind of item to get at AE?

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.
L'Oreal True Match Foundation: This was given to me as …

#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…
