Project Pan 12 Collab: The END

What an epic journey! When I first agreed to do Project Pan, I thought it was be FUN. Oh how wrong I was. This is the song that went through my head (sang to the tune of “The Song That Never Ends“):

This is the Collab that never ends
It just goes on and on my friends
I agree to doing it, not knowing what it was
And I’m wearing the same makeup for 3 months because…
{repeat from top}

😆 I’m teasing. I did enjoy doing Project Pan, especially doing it alongside my collab buddies! 😀

And I’m really proud of myself for sticking to these products and diligently using them 5 out of 7 days, at minimum.

This is the final summary post of the Project Focus 10 collaboration! Firstly, I want to thank the awesome collab crew of Ingrid, Joy and Jodi! It has been so much fun doing this project with you! 😀
focus10_final_2
So, how did I do in the Project Focus? If I was to grade myself in terms of sticking to using the items I chose, I’d give myself a B. It’s a solid grade but it isn’t going to get me on the Honour Roll. 😛 Unlike some of my collab buddies, I did not finish any of the 10 items up during this project, but I intend to continue working on them! Here’s a recap and current state of things.

Happy Leap Year Day! 😀

So in November, I redeemed some Optimum Points for it:

It normally costs $37 for 116ml bottle.
