Foodie Friday: Tea or Coffee?

So I'm not as adventurous with food and have gone yet another week without trying anything new or loving anything new. BUT something that I've always loved is tea and coffee. But when is the right time to drink it?

Let's break down tea first. I love it hot or cold. I'm actually an iced tea snob and only like the powdered Lipton Iced Tea. But I can have this any time of the day any time of the year. Hot tea is a different story. I grew up on Lipton Tea the way my mom makes it with her unique blend of milk and sugar. Me trying to replicate that blend was impossible and I decided I hated that tea but found mint tea. That was my new bae and I was obsessed with peppermint tea for the longest time. I had a cup a day. I go to Chamomile when I'm sick and recently I found I love Earl Grey and now I want to explore black teas. But hot tea is only a winter thing. 

Coffee is my best friend. I have about 5 cups a day. I say that, but really I havent had a single cup today... But growing up my dad loved coffee, my mommom loved espresso and my poppop made a mean cappuccino and my mom only had a latte every once in a while. I was trained to love them all and now I can never make up my mind. (another lie, I always make coffee's unless I try to be different at Starbucks. I'm growing out of the frappuccino stage and I've been getting iced coffee or a latte if it's that cold out.) My coffee of choice just depends on the time of day. Daytime I'm all about iced coffees and frappuccinos but once it's night or early in the morning, I go for the typical cup of Joe. I have found out that my favorite combination is hazelnut coffee with irish cream...

What are your thoughts on the hot (or cold) drinks?

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 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…

#ProjectPan November 2017

I have gone through way too many skin care items this month, and actually starting to lack some replacements for once! Of course I made a shopper's envy order 5 minutes before I realized I needed a backup of something I actually could have bought... gotta love karma...
Neutrogena Deep Clean Gentle Scrub: This was a very citrusy scent. It surprised me. I felt the exfoliators to be more prominent than a micro exfoliator, but less so that others that I've tried. Basically, yes it was gentle. It didn't break me out, which is all I care about. My only complaint is that the exfoliating beads or whatever they were, got stuck in my hair all. the. time. 
H20 Oasis Hydrating Treatment: This was the first gel moisturizer I ever used. I became obsessed very quickly. I'm confused as to what my skin type has turned into, but I think it's safe to say it's on the combo side. Either way, I've learned that my skin lovesssss everything and anything that promised hydrating. It d…
