Rocky Horror Picture Show Project Finale

As some of you know, last April I began a project based on the soundtrack to one of my favorite movies, Rocky Horror Picture Show.

I chose 5 songs and products to go along with the theme.

  1. Over at the Frankenstein Place – Mac Trolls Play it Proper highlighter ~ I wanted to hit pan and I did! I made a whole post about it because I was so excited! I expanded the pan on my highlighter since hitting pan a couple of weeks ago. (See photo below)
  2. I can Make you a Man – Elf daily hydration moisturizer ~ I did not finish this but Im so close! Had I not used a different night time moisturizer, this product would have been finished. I will continue to use it until its finished.
  3. TouchA TouchA Touch Me –  travel size Origins Checks and Balances frothy face wash. ~ I finished this as well as another travel sized cleanser.
  4. Rose Tint my World / Wild and Untamed Thing –  Stila Glitter and Glow in Smoldering Satin. ~ I almost finished this but it dried out and its being decluttered.
  5. Im Going Home –  Boscia luminizing black mask ~ I finished this mask and ended up finishing other masks since.

These are the products I have left:

Did you do a Halloween project? How did you do?

October 2019 Empties

It was a pretty slow month for empties, but I managed to finish a shampoo!

I love the ion shampoo but after using it for almost 3 years – IM DONE! This shampoo does nothing for my hair anymore so I am glad to be done with it. I worked thru my backups so there are no more. We still use the conditioner – and have two more full sized bottles left. I use the ion conditioner when I color my hair fun colors.

I also wanted to talk about the Givenchy Volume Disturbia mascara. I received this back in June from Influenster and fell in love with this! I kept it a month more than I should have because I loved it so much. Its $27 at Sephora and after I finish off what I have on hand I will purchase.

This months empties total is $68.07!!

Did you finish a lot of products in October?

25 to the 25th Christmas Project Pan

Edit: This post was supposed to go up last Thursday but we had some connectivity issues and it wouldnt publish. I lost a large bit of this post so thats why its not as detailed as many of my other project introductions.

I decided to do one last project before the end of the year. I wanted to make sure I finished off a lot of samples I had hanging around and use up some older skin care products before the end of the year.

Most of these products will be easy to finish because they are either foil samples or I just have a small amount left.

final push

Will you be doing one last push to finish anything?

I hit pan on a full size highlighter!!!

Back in April, I began a RHPS Project Pan that will end on Halloween.

One of the products I put into this project is the Mac Cosmetics Play it Proper highlighter. I had barely used this product prior to this project so I just wanted to hit pan. At the time, I didnt even think I would hit pan – but guys…..I HIT PAN!!!!

Yes, this is a spoiler to the RHPS Project Pan, but Im so excited about this. I have never hit pan on a full size highlighter.

My full update on this project will be posted after Halloween but I just could not wait!

Have you ever hit pan or finished a full size highlighter?

 

Whats in my bag tag – Coach Cassie edition

Its been awhile since Ive done a Whats in my Bag post and Ive been absolutely in love with my Coach Cassie Crossbody bag! (The bag in the link is not my bag just a very close version)

fullsizeoutput_1780.jpeg

Ive been using this bag almost non stop since I purchased her a little over a month ago. Ive always wanted a Louis Vuitton Pochette Metis but I cannot justify spending that much money on a purse. The Cassie is so similar and Im a huge fan of Coach and $350 is a LOT less money than $2,230!

Despite its ‘small’ footprint, this bag can hold quite a bit! There are three compartments with the center compartment featuring a slip pocket and zippered pocket. In the photo above, you will see how I have maximized my space with several small goods.

You can see how much I can get away with carrying! I have my sunglasses (I have Vera Bradley prescription sunglasses), my Altoids, Skittles, Lorna Doone cookies, and an energy bar (I love snacks), Kleenex, L’Occitane hand lotion, Ulta blotting sheets, a Coach mirror, Louis Vuitton 4 ring key holder, my favorite Tarte lipstick (Festival), wet wipes, lens cleaners and several small goods.

In the black coin purse I carry my earbuds and adaptor and in the larger vanilla coin purse I carry cards that I dont want in my card holder. There are coins in the smaller coin purse and the Chanel VIP wallet holds my drivers license, insurance card, and paper money.

What do you have in your bag? Have you recently splurged on a new one?

August 2019 Empties

Somehow time is passing by and I realized I am WAY behind on posting. Again, we are nearly at the end of September and I havent even posted my empties for August.

It was another light month for empties.

This month I finished 6 perfume samples!

I finished my favorite cleanser as well as a Bobbi Brown eyeshadow stick -which were both in a recent project and a Lush soap bar.

This months empties total is $36.64!!
