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.

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…
