July Empties

Like I predicted back in my very light June Empties post, July is a heavy month. As in it didn't even fit in the box I normally use to store my empties during the month. There's also a good mix of products here, some skincare, some hygiene, some coffee, a whole assortment of stuff. Let's … Continue reading July Empties

June Empties

After a few months of really hefty empties posts it feels very nice to have a slightly more normal level of empties this month. I also am slightly annoyed with myself because three of these empties are because I can't resist samples/trial sizes, particularly the Ouai samples because I requested them, whereas I didn't even … Continue reading June Empties

May Empties

I've been on a bit more of a buying moment lately than a use up moment, and I have been using what I buy so I have no guilt about it, but I need to put a freeze on the buying and really lean back into the Project Pan and get some stuff used up. … Continue reading May Empties

Friday Favorites: Short Week, Long Days

This week has gone so quickly and so slowly at the same time. Monday was the second day of driving back that started in a hilly, twisty portion of the Trans-Canada Highway in a snowstorm, then Tuesday began with an email inbox that began at 16 unread emails and slowly updated over 10 minutes to … Continue reading Friday Favorites: Short Week, Long Days

Wednesday Wants: Beauty

So this is slightly different, not only is this things I want, it's also things I have an order placed on it. But I have run out of a ton of makeup and skincare items, which is great from the perspective of my Project Pan, but of course I'm out of the things I'm actually … Continue reading Wednesday Wants: Beauty

July Empties

This was a big month for using stuff up. Some of it makes sense, a few things I have been using since last November and some were purchases I had to make because I haven't yet got used to having to be prepared and planning ahead to avoid using plastic/packaged products. This is a great … Continue reading July Empties

June Empties

I am feeling slightly derailed as my blog post schedule is being impacted by my real life. We were supposed to be moving back into the office today, but then there was a government announcement that it was still recommended that non-essential employees still work from home until September 7. I have very mixed feelings … Continue reading June Empties

Indigenous People’s Day

Today is National Indigenous People's Day in Canada! Today is a celebration of the cultures, traditions, languages, and peoples that have lived on Turtle Island since time immemorial. It falls in June, Indigenous History Month, and I feel that this year's Day falling on the Summer Solstice is probably particularly auspicious, as Indigenous people's tell … Continue reading Indigenous People’s Day

May Empties

It's that time again! Time to check in on what I used up in the month of May. This is part of me tracking what I use up for Project Pan, actually learn what I like versus what is trendy/ if I am being influenced by social media, and keep track of my plastic waste … Continue reading May Empties

Obsessions: April 10

I can't remember if I said it on here last week, but I was starting to feel a little useless at work, like I wasn't doing enough or that I had gotten through the intro/transition work a bit too quickly and that they didn't have anything for me to do. However, this week I am … Continue reading Obsessions: April 10
