Music Monday: 25

I finally got my hands on the Target exclusive version of 25 on the last day of 2015! This week will be more of a first listen as I've only heard the first few songs on Adele's 25 album but I'm in love with what I've heard so far.

1. Hello- This song never gets old. I believe it was out since felt like a while. It's her comeback song and it's beautiful and I try to sing along as the belt-y songs are always my favorite but I just sound like a screeching cat. If you haven't heard it yet, you must be living under a rock because it's played everywhere (and rightfully so!) This song also has a sorry message of the heart-breaker's point of view which is usually the other way around and I like that.

2. Send My Love (To Your New Lover): OH MY GOD. Who is this??? This isn't the Adele music I'm used to! It's more upbeat and the beat is funky and sounds more like festival music..I can't put a genre to it, but it's really cool. Really different. I like. I wanna know the string instrument that is used because it's not the usual guitar...Also the message is a little lost to me at the moment only because I'm so obsessed with the beat but I think it's the generic treat the new girl right kinda thing. 

3.I Miss You: Same festival like music with the beat but slower. I love the drums. Not a song I'd think would be stuck in my head but I can't stop singing it!

Okay we all know Adele slays on every song so each song from now on will be beat focused and any part that sticks out the most. 

4. When We Were Young: AKA my current favorite on the album. Like I said, I have a soft spot for slow belt-y songs. I love how you can hear how much emotion she has when she sings. I especially love the raspy-scratchy bits. The choir part at the end is nice. The key change is very nice. 

5. Remedy: This sounds like another song I love but I just can't put my finger on's amazing regardless. I think the message is that she's convincing someone to go back to her...or to pick her cause she will cure all. I really like the little melody changes at the end.

6. Water Under the Bridge: Ohhhhhh I like this already. First time hearing this song (and the rest of the songs from now on). More up tempo. New Adele vibe is very nice. She's saying to just be upfront with her about your feelings but to be nice about it. Similar to Send Your Love with the echo-y harmonizing on the pre-chorus. It's a very cool sound. Woah a capella part at the end gave me chills.

7. River Lea: Interesting start. I expected that the chorus will be more of a build up and up beat and i was right and I really like it! More soulful. 

8. Love In the Dark: Ooh starting with orchestra sounds. The lyrics sound like the reason for why she's apologizing in Hello. Listening to those two one after the other might make you cry. I like the chorus.

9. Million Years Ago: Another different sound. Almost like a Italian or Spanish ballad. At least that's what it sounds like to me. The lyrics are very sad.

10. All I Ask: I like the piano part. Am I crying? Maybe. I thought it would be a standard slow song but oh my word it's so much more somehow. Her emotion is heard through her voice and it's making it much more sad. Another song where she knows she's gonna have a break up because of the other not feeling the same. But the bridge oh my. She just has the voice of an angel. 

11. Sweetest Devotion: What would be the last song of the album. Has that vibe that the other songs of the album do (the funky beat vibe) but another slower one. Still has a nice beat that gets kicked up in the chorus. I really love all the echo-y bits. What a way to end an album, especially after listening to All I Ask. Nothing sad. Pure love. I like a lot. 

12. Can't Let Go: The beginning sounds like River Lea. Not much of a build up in the chorus. I don't know how to feel about it. Not a bad song, fairly standard. The bridge sorta saves the song. 

13. Lay Me Down: Very old-school sounding. I can't put an era on it just yet. I really like it. 

14. Why Do You Love Me: I hear a cow bell! I like this right away! (Sorry I love up beat ones best). It's a gospel choir sound in the chorus and I really like that. She's saying don't get me wrong I love you and I want you to love me but I just don't know why. I think it's all positive lyrics? Everything about this is funky and different and cool. 

Overall an amazing album, just wish it was on Spotify for the world to hear...

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…
