Music Monday: Lauren Alaina

Music is a huge part of my life, so I thought why not make Monday a day where I talk about the artists and songs I love or have been stuck in my head. First up is Lauren Alaina!
A few years ago, when American Idol was still good, I happened to start to watch the season that Lauren was on. I loved her straight away. She has a killer voice! And she was versatile too! And gorgeous! And my age! I wanted her to win, but sadly, she came in a close second!! So obviously she just HAS to have a great voice if she made it that far!
Firstly, she's a country singer. I love all genres equally but I think at that time I was mostly in a country mood. 
I keep up with all artists that I love, so I followed her journey with posting an album and patiently waiting for the next, which is still in progress. I believe it was either in September or October when her EP : LA was released and it's such a tune! Her single is called Next Boyfriend, and it's supposed to make fun of pickup lines, but it's the perfect mix of country- upbeat and yet able to sing your heart out. The rest of the EP is supposed to be a taste of what the album will be like and all the songs are more pop-country, sort of like Taylor Swift in her Speak Now stage. Her first album was definitely more country and had a huge Carrie Underwood influence, as Carrie is one of her inspirations, so it's fitting. 
I know Lauren Alaina at least helps co-write all of her songs, which is always a plus. She obviously has the vocal talent, which is the most important thing to me. Maybe it's because we are the same age, but she's just really relate-able and down to earth and funny and so so so talented. She's definitely under-appreciated and definitely an artist to listen to!

What's your favorite Lauren Alaina song?

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…
