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.

#ProjectPan May 2017

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…
