I can’t believe it’s already time for my first Project Pan update! I have to say, this experiment has been a little more difficult than I thought it would be, but I think I definitely made some great progress! I finished up/hit pan on many items on my list, so I’d say this first quarter has been quite successful. I’m having a bit of a hard time getting through some products, but I’m just trying to stay optimistic. This post is going to be long enough, so I’ll cut the rambling and just get on with it!

I’m happy to say that I’m starting off my first “empties” post of 2017 with a bang. I used up several skincare and makeup items which I’ve been dying to part with for some time now. Unfortunately, using up a good chunk of my skincare products in the dead of winter hasn’t been ideal, but that just gives me an excuse to try some other new and exciting things. If you’d like to learn more about the products I finished this past month, please keep reading!

Happy New Year everybody! I hope you all had some wonderful celebrations this past weekend. Just like many other people around the world, I decided that now is a better time than ever to get myself started on something I’ve been wanting to do for quite some time: finish some old products. I got way too caught up in trying out so many different things over the years, which I don’t entirely regret doing, however doing so made me lose sight of what my original wants and needs were when I first decided to build up my collection. I actually want to enjoy the stuff that I have, and in order to do that, I need to make an effort to use them on a regular basis.
So how am I going to do this? Enter: Project Pan. Project Pan is essentially a project to use up products in my makeup collection. The goal of my specific project is to “pan” (i.e. to literally see the bottom of the pan or finish up) 17 products by the end of 2017. It also helps to track progress in order to stay motivated. If a product is finished before the end of the year, it is replaced with another product from my collection which I would like to use up.
Sounds simple enough, right? For me, it will definitely be a challenge because I need variety in my routine, otherwise I’ll go crazy. I’m going to try very hard to use the products I’ve chosen to pan, however if I’m really bored, I’m not going to deny myself of using another product. My makeup, after all, is supposed to make me feel happy. There’s no point in making this a miserable journey – I just want the satisfaction of actually using things up and knowing that I got my money’s worth.

2016 has definitely been a whirlwind of a year for many of us. Some of us are more than ready to get it over and done with, and others may have the best year of their lives. Regardless, I think it’s very important to reflect on everything that has happened as the year comes to a close; both the good and the ugly.
I certainly have had a mix of both high and low points this year, but in terms of my blogging life, I’ve had wonderful experiences this year. I’ve attracted a larger audience which motivated me to discover more products in order to deliver better content. In turn, I collected so many great products this year that made it to the most elite ranking: my yearly favourites. If you’d like to know what made the cut this year, please keep reading.
