Weekly Catch Up: 8/13/16

Here's the things I've been watching, reading, and listening to over the past week!

Watching: I've caught up with Tanya Burr, and have moved on to ThatcherJoe aka Joe Sugg. Currently on his vlogs as I've caught up with his main channel videos. His main channel videos always make me laugh, and his vlogs are just as good!

Reading: So remember that book rut/hangover I was going through? Well I decided enough was enough, deleted all the books I decided I had to read on GoodReads, went back to my personal, handwritten list of series I was still in the middle of, and picked the series I was closer to finishing and just bought in on my kindle. I intended it to be for those times where I was stuck waiting and it would be a better alternative than wasting my data. Literally the next day, I had a hard time falling asleep, and turned to my kindle and started to read the book I had just bought, Beautiful Redemption (4th book in the Beautiful Creatures series). I quickly got back into the caster world and became more awake than intended. Somehow I fell asleep and then spent that next day doing nothing but finishing that book, it was that good. If you've gotten that far in the series, then you won't have a problem getting through it. My only complaint was that it could have gone a teensy bit faster with the pace, but overall, I found myself very hooked and it was a nice way to tie up loose ends and I felt complete with the series. 

Listening: So I just heard The Chain Smokers and Halsey's song, Closer, and I LOVE it! Still loving Daya and Ariana and Meghan Trainor's songs, so not too much exploring on the music front.

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…
