Finish 8 By Summer

So the next project to try is Finish 8 By Summer.

The following are returning from Spring, so if you want more info on the products, check out that post:
  • Calgon Morning Glory Body Mist
  • Always Loved by My Daughter Fragrances
  • Glam Naturals Mascara in Black
  • Cynthia Rowley Eyeliner in Black
  • Clinique's Dramatically Different Moisturizing Gel
The new products are:

How 'Bout Them Apples? Cheek & Lip Cream in Pie by theBalm - A deep pink, great on the lips. I'm still figuring out how to use cream products on my cheeks, but I figured with the weather getting warmer, this might be a good time to try it out. This little sample is about half full.

Benetint by Benefit - I have so much of this stuff. There's a tiny little bit left in this jar. I will have it gone by summer.

Gimme Brown by Benefit in Medium/Deep - I figure I can use this in place of my brow gel for a little bit. It's a tiny jar; I hope it doesn't go forever.

 Like before, there will be a picture on Instagram! Follow me there.

Finish 7 By Spring Finale

So in the coming days, you will see a picture on Instagram of the final results, but in the mean time, here's the results of this project.

Calgon Morning Glory Body Mist - This is the body mist that just won't die! I barely used any, but I feel I sprayed it so much. It'll be continued in the projects to come *Not finished*

Always Loved by My Daughter Fragrances - I finished about half of it, which I'm pretty proud of. I work in a scent free zone, so I don't get much opportunity to wear perfume, so that progress is not bad. It will also continue. *Not finished*

Angel By MAC Cosmetics - I used quite a bit of it, but I hate it. It's really old so I used what I could, but I'm going to Back-To-MAC it. *Decluttered*

Suburbia Mineral Eyeshadow in Brazen - Another product that I feel like I should have made more progress on 'cause I used it a lot. It will not be in the Finish 8 By Summer project, just 'cause I'm tired of it. It'll probably be back later in the year though. *Not finished*

Glam Naturals Mascara - This just keeps going as well. It hasn't dried out any, so it'll continue. *Not finished*

Cynthia Rowley Eye Liner in Black - I made some progress and it will continue. *Not finished*

Clinique's Dramatically Different Moisturizing Gel - This is the product I made the most progress on. I finished about 2/3's of it. It will continue and I hope (finger's crossed) it'll be done at the end of the Summer project. *Not finished*

Total fail project really. I didn't finish anything. This is disappointing. Hopefully the next project will be more productive.

I finished one nail polish already!

UPDATE ON #365daysofempties
I'm on #67 - the above lipstick.

Finish 7 By Spring

I am going to do this project again, but a bit differently. I don't think I'll do any updates, just the final results. If I'm making great progress, maybe I'll do an update, or maybe half way through. What do you guys think?

So here we go!

(Insert Picture Here) <- Pretend there's a picture. I've been doing this project for a month now and so if I took a new picture, since the one I was going to post is crap, it wouldn't be right. BUT watch for the updates and you'll see the products.

A returning item from the last project I did in the fall of 2015 (OMG seriously, I didn't project pan at all in 2016? Oops.):

Calgon Morning Glory Body Mist - it's back! It just will not die! This is going this round.

The new things:

Always Loved by My Daughter Fragrances - I'm still working on the never ending perfume samples. As I can't wear this at work, I only put one in this time. Notes are: Bulgarian rose oil, Turkish rose absolute, Bitter cocoa absolute, Patchouli, Vetiver, and Cedar.

Angel by MAC Cosmetics - This was a bad decision when I bought it. I wanted a nude, I got a washed out baby pink that makes me look like Barbie. I'm going to use it up and add it to the Back to MAC pile I've started.

Suburbia Mineral Eyeshadow by Brazen - A loose chocolate brown shadow. It has sparkles in it in the pot and as soon as you pack it on the lid, but as soon as you start blending, they all fall out. I've been using it with UD's Naked Palette.

Glam Naturals Mascara - Again, the never ending black mascara samples. I'm probably going to have one in each project.

Cynthia Rowley Eye Liner in Black - This is another thing that will probably be in every project. I have enough black pencil liners to last me 10 years.

Clinique's Dramatically Different Moisturizing Gel - I bought this a long time ago when I had oily skin. Now I'm just trying to use it up. My dry skin drinks it, so it shouldn't take long.

So let's see how I do this time. Hopefully, I do better than I have in the past.

PS I'm also doing a Project Polish and #365daysofempties but I'm only posting them on my Instagram. Come follow me!

Good Morning 2017 ☀️!

Hello world! It's time for another year and for me to make goals that I never seem to finish.

I'm getting married this year and I want to look my best, feel my best, and be my best me.

My goals this year are:

Project pan like crazy and get rid of a ton of makeup, skincare and haircare. I have tons of all three and I don't need or use it all. I barely wear makeup as it is, what's the point of having twenty different shades of red lipstick.

Build a capsule wardrobe. I have lots of clothes I never wear, but I find myself saying "I have nothing to wear!"  I want to have about 25 pieces per season that I love and that's it. 100 pieces I can just pull out of the closet and throw on and feel awesome. I'm going to start by finding a great pair of black dress pants. I already have a black blazer, so I'm half way to a great suit, right?

Gain the last 5 pounds and build muscle. Increase my upper body strength. I'm wearing a strapless dress. The guns gotta look good!

I'll start with that and see how I do in the first month or so. Wish me luck!

Happy New Year!

Happy New Year from my little family to yours!

Hopefully, you'll see more from me this year than you did last. 
I'm going to be doing a few new things and not doing most of what I tried to do last year.

Stay Tuned!
<3 Max

Lifestyle Revival

Today was Day One of trying to get my life back. It was a rocky start as I had to cut my workout short, to make supper, to get back to work after being off for four hours. I didn't get time to eat my morning snack either. I'm hoping tomorrow will go better. 

I really hope tomorrow isn't another workout with lots of leg stuff. I could barely walk after today's.

Long time no chat

I wish I had some awesome news or anything new to talk about but I don't really. I've been working so much I haven't had time to do any posts.

I'm going to cancel ipsy in December, you won't see anymore of those posts. I'm going to do empties seasonally from now on. I just don't have enough to do it monthly.

The wedding planning is almost complete. Just a few little things left to do.

Hopefully you'll hear from me again before Christmas.
