Weekly Catch-Up: 5/28/16

Here are the non-beauty things that have been grabbing my attention over the past week...

TV: I've recently started to binge watch Gilmore Girls. I grew up watching the show after school but I always planned to rewatch it start to finish and now I've had the time to do just that. Currently I'm in the middle of season 3 and there no longer is a Jess vs Dean debate for me, I'm convinced Dean is stalker like and I much prefer Jess. Which is ironic as when I was younger I hated Jess for breaking up Dean and Rory and now I see that they should have broken up sooner. 

Music: I am an album kinda gal, I mostly listen to albums on repeat until I get sick of them. Meghan Trainor's new album is out and I've had definitely made some favorites already. I love Me Too, Watch Me Do, I Love Me, and Friends. But I've seen that Ariana Grande's new album is out and I kind of need to listen to it asap...

Books: So little story time, When I was like 10 my aunt took me and my cousins along to get a library card cause I've been a book worm for as long as I can remember. Well after like the first book, I ended up losing the card, to years later try to create a new one at the same library, but they wouldn't let me as I already had a card in the system and they told me to find it. I then swore off libraries because they never usually carry the books I want to read anyway. Then, earlier this week, my friend went to the library to go and get a new book and since it was a different library, and I've been in a book rut, I decided to give library card another go and then before I knew it, I was grabbing 4 huge books to read... I picked up The picture of Dorian Gray by Oscar Wilde, Billy & Me by Giovanna Fletcher, Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell, and Chesapeake Blue by Nora Roberts. Dorian Gray was suggested by my friend. Chesapeake Blue is the last book in the series that I had started a while ago and I've been waiting to read it as I fall in love with every single character Nora Roberts creates. The other books were ones that I've kept in mind to read over the years. I gave each book a chance and read the first chapter, and to no surprise, Chesapeake Blue is the one I can't stop thinking about so I'm gonna read that first.

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…
