Music Monday: Know-It-All (Deluxe)

So I've been in an Alessia Cara, Ariana Grande and Daya kick lately and decided to give my first reaction to Alessia Cara's album! I know it's been out for a while but oh well...

Seventeen: Remember when I said that Ulta plays songs that I think are from an artist I know but I'm not completely sure? This is one of those songs. It's a great tune that instantly wakes me up. It's not a super upbeat song, but it's enough with the oh's to put me in a great mood. 

Here: I've loved this song since it first came out. It's my anthem. I relate to this song so much. Besides the lyrics being on point, I'm just blown away by Alessia's ability to sing that much in a single breath! I struggle to keep up when I sing along!

Outlaws: I think this is actually another song I've heard at work. I like it! It almost has that do wop feel to it!

I'm Yours: Have I heard all these songs at work? It's possible..either that or all her songs sound the same (which I'm not complaining, but they do). I want a slow song...

Four Pink Walls: She sounds more like in Here and the beat reminds me of another song that I can't think of but I like it! it's more chill of a song. 

Wild Things: I love this song. It inspired me to review this album to begin with. It's a very chill vibe but also a subtle anthem like Here was. 

Stone: Ohhh this is a bit different! Much slower and showcases her voice. I like it!

Overdose: If Here and Seventeen had a baby it would be this song! Slow on the verses and upbeat for the chorus, a mix that is one of my favorites. 

Stars: Another slow one. It's a cute love song!

Scars To Your Beautiful: A song of self love. One of those that I probably won't appreciate until I'm feeling down, but a great pick me up!

Here( 2:00 AM version): A stripped down version of Here and it's so beautiful!

River of Tears: A sad song lyrically. But the music is slightly more upbeat. It seems to be a song that speaks of crying it out and starting a new. I like it!

My Song: I looove the message of this song! It's like a "I'm gonna do what I want, don't want to follow the Hollywood norms" kinda song. It's perf!

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 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…
