Watch It Wednesday: Gilmore Girls

Image result for gilmore girls

It's a classic, but in case you never heard of it (or seen it), Gilmore Girls is a great show. I know it recently was put on Netflix so it's easier to get a hold of to watch (or binge watch). I grew up watching reruns on ABC Family after school and then I actually tried to watch it while it was still running but then that was the confusing year where no one was sure if it was being cancelled so I missed the last season. 

Regardless, Gilmore Girls is about the life of Lorelai Gilmore and her daughter Rory who live in the small town of Starshallow in Connecticut. It starts out with Rory trying to get into a private high school for her Junior year (or senior year..it's been a while since I saw the first episode). It's mainly focused on Rory and her life and her ups and downs and then Lorelai's life is in the background. Rory has a few love interests and Lorelai has quite a few herself.

Lorelai is more of a free spirit and Rory is a bookworm and although they sound like opposite personalities. they are best friends. I always felt like I was more like Rory so I always rooted for her and mostly cared about her story.

There are other characters that I love dearly. Luke owns the diner and is one of Lorelai's good friends. Lane is Rory's best friend. Kirk is one of the townspeople and has nearly every job imaginable but is a great character and so funny. Taylor is another one of those type of characters but he is the ringleader among a lot of the town events. Sookie is Lorelai's best friend and the cook in the inn that Lorelai works at (and later owns). Michel is my favorite. He works at the inn too. Emily and Richard Gilmore are Lorelai's parents and they are just both equally special characters of their own. Emily is very outspoken and Richard is more soft-spoken and the pair is never boring.

Basically, it's a drama show filled with lively characters and you get sucked in by the chemistry between the characters and the story line. It's one to watch.

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…
