Project 10 Pan Update!

While I did not exactly stick to "Project 10 Pan" in its entirety, I am still using the products that I chose. Unfortunately, I DID buy NEW makeup products.

I have been successful in using up a few chosen products...

  • Clean & Clear toner
  • Estee Lauder Advance Night Repair Serum
  • Estee Lauder Idealist (pore minimizer)
  • Christian Dior face serum
I am very proud of myself for using up almost 1/2 of the products I set out to finish. I am also happy to say that I am using the Estee Lauder toner everyday, as well as the Estee Lauder Eye makeup remover. It feels so good to know that I am not wasting my money, or products. After this first round of Project 10 Pan is completed I will go ahead and choose 10 new products to finish...

I encourage everyone to try this at least once!

My Garden--BEFORE

So, I am soooo very happy that warmer weather is finally here! It is now time to get outside and work in the garden! These are pictures of my yard before any planting has been done this year! I am hoping to take pictures as the garden progresses!

This is the first part of the garden where I currently have a rhubarb plant.

Overhead look at rhubarb plant (needs water!)

Overhead view of the first part of the garden.
This first part is where I am planning on planting cucumbers and different types of peppers!

This is the second part of the garden!

Overhead look at the second part (ugh! my shadow!)
In this area I am planning on planting greenbeans (bush beans and polebeans)

This is the third part of the garden!
I am planning on planting tomatoes here! Many, many, many varieties!
oh, and onions all around!

This is still the third part, but this shows the recently added raised garden bed!

In here i am planning on planting many hers, lettuce, and onions

this is the fourth part of the garden (overhead long view)
There are many perennials planted here!
sometimes, i fill empty areas with veggies, such as a tomato plant or pepper plant!

The next couple pictures are head-on segments of the fourth part!

**notice the upside down strawberry planter! ( this is the first time i am using this planter AND the first time growing strawberries!)
In the planter i have basil, strawberries, and two different types of parsley
