Project 200 Pan: Intro

I have so many posts to write and share that I feel like I won’t be caught up until March. I haven’t posted a product review in FOREVER and my blog used to be all about the reviews. I want to get back to that, but for right now, I have so many posts to write for the new year. Once everything calms down, get ready for a storm of reviews. LOL. I’m going to try to sprinkle some in when I can, but gosh, inspiration can be a bad thing as well. I was feeling so uninspired in 2017 and now, I am full of ideas and projects.

My Project 200 Pan is to hit pan and use up 200 assorted beauty products including but not limited to makeup, body, skin, and hair care. Basically anything beauty related and I will count foil packets and perfume samples. 5 of them will be counted as 1 item. I am counting full size and deluxe as well in this project. I am counting every time I hit pan in a powder product as 1 as well. So, if I pan an eye shadow, blush, bronzer, highlighter, etc it will count and if I finish it, I will be counting it again.

I will be doing my empty posts as well. These Project Pan posts will be more about counting the items and adding up the monetary amount and keep me accountable every month. I hope you all enjoy these posts this year.

With Love,

Selena

December Empties

Instead of saying another month gone, I’ll say another year gone this time around. I believe the older you are, the faster time seems to go by. Time never went by this fast when I was in high school. It only ever went fast when I was actually enjoying my life. Now, days that drag and days that fly, all seem to go at the same pace. Sounds cliche and maybe it is but it is also the truth. I would never go back in time. I want to always be moving forward, never going back. For the new year empties, I am going to be trying a new style of empty posts. Stay tuned until Feb to see the new empties.

December was a light month for me and January is already looking better. I have been decluttering some makeup products here and there that are just not good anymore. As I go throughout the year, I plan on decluttering anything that I don’t like that I know are recent products to friends and anything else can and will be thrown away. It’s time for a new me that doesn’t keep products around just to have them.

With Love,

Selena

$200 Before 2018 Update #8

We are on the second to last update for this series on my blog. Looking at what I used up, it really isn’t much, but I remember that I don’t have much of this challenge left. Maybe I used enough to call it completed? My total used up is 19 out of 20 totaling $157.69 out of $200. I only needed to use up $21.15 X2 to call it quits. I wonder if I used up that much. Looking at what I have, I think I have $10 to $5 more to use up in December, but we shall see. I am super excited to see the totals of what I used up.

empties

I used up a perfume sample, so let’s call that $1. $158.69 is the new total. I used up a mini Mark lip gloss that costs $2.49. $161.18 so far. Now, I want to add up the little benefit tubes that I have. I have wrote about them both before on my blog, so I am just going to look up the amounts that I said that they were. The gray tube is worth $8 and the shiny tube is worth $8. Apparently, they both hold 1 gram of product. I throw these away when I got pink eye and the report that these are toxic. I think it’s the reason that I got pink eye in the first place. Now, we are up to $177.18. I don’t think that the mascara will take us there, but it will take us pretty close I think. $12 for the mascara mini, so dadada!!!!! My new total is $189.18, so all I need to use up is $10.82 worth of makeup. I’ve already used up over 20 items, so now I just want to use up the rest of the $200.

I am so ready for my 250 items use up project in 2018 of all beauty related items.

What projects are you starting in the new year?

November Empties

Hey guys! Another month gone and Christmas and Dean’s birthday are right around the corner. I had quite a few empties this month, so I was very impressed. I have a ton of reviews to write now in my spare time. I’ve been building the furniture I bought on Black Friday this weekend and I’ll be able to show them soon. I just want to buy some super glue to glue back some broken pieces on my nick knacks so they look good in the pictures that I’ll be taking. I’ll be having two VS hauls coming up soon. So, stay tuned!

I finished off quite a few minis, but also some full sizes as well. I’m very proud of what I have been able to accomplish. I am looking forward to seeing what I can finish off before it is time for my January inventory to start off the new year with. I will be busy inventorying my whole collection and making plans for my 2018 year project pan where I want to use up 250 beauty related items next year. There will  be plenty of fun posts in the new year. I’m happy that I’m only doing one project next year. Simplified.

With Love,

October Empties

Another month, another empties post. I went through surprising a lot this month. I wasn’t expecting to use up so much, but it seems like a lot of my products are on their last legs. I expect November and December to be heavy months as well. I am grateful that I never lost power in the storm that terrorized New England this week and I pray for the lives lost in the terrorist attack in New York City. That city has gone through way too much. My car was damaged in the storm, but at least, no one got hurt. I hope everyone is having a nice weekend. I’ll be outside playing with my son today.

I am super impressed with what I was able to move out this month. I’m running low on product reviews, so I might disappear during the week with no new posts once in a while. On those weeks, I will be writing product reviews for my blog. I like to hand write them first before typing them up on my blog. Next week will probably be an empty week. I’m going to try to write as many reviews as I can. Maybe I can empty out my review basket. I’m hoping to write ten reviews, because lets face it, there are like 50 products in my review basket right now. lol. If I do 5 reviews a day this weekend, I’ll be happy.

With Love,

Selena

$200 Before 2018: Update #6

I managed to use up a few more makeup items in September, but not that many. I really need to move myself into high gear if I want to finish 7 more products and use up the rest of that $200 that is remaining in this challenge. If I reach both goals before 2018, I will end the challenge on that month otherwise it will end with the last update in January for December.

Let’s recap, I have finished 13 out of 20 products with the total being $123.20 out of $200. Let’s see if I can raise that total to $140.

1 Perfume Sample = $1

IMG_2887

Temptu Highlighter = $4

highlighter

MUFE ULTRA HD Loose Microfinishing Powder = $5

My total now is 15 out of 20 products used up to the tune of $133.20. That isn’t so bad. I still have October, November, and December left. So, that is three months left for this project. In order to make it, I need to finish at least almost 2 products every month. I will also need a minimum value of $22.27 used up every month. This is going to be so challenging and I really need to move my butt on this. Even if I “fail” this challenge, I will see it as a win, because I started this in June or something I almost have already reached my goal. I’ll be keeping this challenge going next year with a 200 items project pan challenge that I will include more categories than just makeup.

Are you doing a project pan?

With Love,

Selena

September Empties

I have not counted my empties beforehand so it will be a complete surprise to see how many products I have used up this month. I am happy to have finish at least one full sized item this month that I can remember and I am really proud of myself. It was a big 2 oz night time face cream that I didn’t particularly enjoy. So, even if I only finished up like 20 things, I feel like I have accomplished so much more. Let’s get into seeing what I used up this month instead of continuing this long intro.

24 products empty isn’t a bad number to end the month with. I already have four or five empties in my basket right now and I’m sure I’ll have more soon. It seems like some things are running out all at once, but I have backups. I’m hoping that October brings a solid 20 product month as well. I’m usually very happy with using up 20 products a month. I know that may seem like a lot to other people, but I have a ton of deluxe and sample sizes that need to be used up. I’m forever adding to the collection with my Sephora and Walmart beauty boxes. I’m getting there though. I don’t have quite as big of a stash as I used to.

With Love,

Selena
