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?

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…
