Weekly Catch-Up: 6/4/16

It's the part of the week where I catch you up on things I've been watching, reading, and listening to...

Watching: So guess who's back on track and catching up on her sub box? Yup, this girl! But it's still fairly recent but it feels good to get back into the groove of things. Also before I fall asleep I've gotten into the horrible habit of watching Jimmy Fallon's channel. Only horrible because I'm peeing myself laughing out loud at 1 in the morning...sorry mom!

Also GIRL MEETS WORLD IS BACK! I'm writing this before the season 3 premiere but I'm assuming I'm gonna love it as this is one of my favorite shows. Riley and the gang are in high school and it's gonna be loads more drama in the totally but not love triangle of Rucas vs Lucaya. (BTW I'm totes team Lucaya and my friend Rena is a Rucas die-hard.)

Reading: Remember when I got all those library books? Well I ended up finishing the Nora Roberts book, Chesapeake Blue. I'm a sucker for every Nora Roberts book I read. I always say the the series I just finished is my favorite. Well I did a little browsing the internet and turns out that the Chesapeake Bay series is one of the most popular Nora Roberts series, so I'm not that bias... A quick summary of this series is 3 adopted brothers come back home to raise ten year old Seth and treat him like his brother. It's the last wish from their father Ray Quinn. The Quinn brothers make a new life for themselves with Seth and find love in the process. Seth's book (Chesapeake Blue) is an add-on that gives a glimpse of what life is like for the Quinn brothers 20 years later. I was hooked since page 1. Definitely give it a read if you love romance novels. I'm currently in a book hangover but plan to start reading The Picture of Dorian Gray. 

Listening: Funnily enough, I've not been listening to new music recently. It's whatever plays at Ulta or shuffle on my Spotify. I have been listening to throwbacks from Backstreet Boys, Nsync, and Akon, JoJo and Michael Buble.

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…
