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?

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…

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…
