You’ve booked your babysitter for a night on the town with your Valentine. The day’s leading up can be full of anxiety because for us busy mothers of little kids Date Night Happens or it Doesn’t. Since date nights comes so few and far between they do deserve a new outfit, shoes or at least some new make-up and a bubble bath, right?
Tis’ Night before Date Night
- Nothing is more important to looking your best than eating a well-balanced meal free of any food sensitivities you may have. Since I have personally cut my food sensitivities out of my diet my bloat is gone and my glow is in full force. Did you know milk, eggs, peanuts, tree nuts, fish, soy, wheat and shellfish – cause 90 percent of all food allergies?
- Drinking plenty of water. Lack of water can lead to dehydration, a condition that occurs when you don’t have enough water in your body to carry out normal functions. Even mild dehydration can drain your energy and make you tired. Recently I have tripled my water intake and my headaches have disappeared and I finally have a new Love of my Health.
- Reduce your stress. Magnesium is a natural stress reliever and energy booster. It helps produce a chemical in the brain called serotonin, which works to elevate your mood and increases your ability to make it through the day by directing energy production in the cells. By lowering both adrenaline levels and blood pressure, magnesium also reduces irritability and fosters relaxation. As a result, your concentration sharpens, and you can finally get the good night’s sleep your body craves! For me when I need a “mommy moment” I take a long warm bath filled with Epsom Salts. Dr Teal’s Epsom Salts are the perfect addition to your bath the night before your big date. (Do not use it the day of – I hit my bed and never woke up after my long peaceful bath.)
- Get a good night’s sleep. I cannot stress enough about the importance of having a good night’s sleep. In our house it is extremely important to me that everyone has dark rooms and all alarm clock lights are taped off with electrical tape. Ever since watching “Lights Out” on the Natural of Things I have come to respect the importance of sleep. Plus adding Dr Teal’s Epsom Salts to your bath, trust me you will be sleeping like a baby in no time.
Day of your Date Night Out
The day has arrived and you’re fresh because you implemented my tips above and you’re ready to get ready for your night on the town with your Valentine. Your lips are kissable because you have moisturized and soothes any chapped lips with Lypsyl. Your perfect outfit is picked and ready to go you’ve had a peaceful kid free shower with some wonderful products like Calgon take me away line. I love the scent and fresh feeling I get after using the ultra-moisturizing Morning Glory body wash and body cream.
Your hair is blown out and full of volume sure to skip a beat in your Valentine’s chest. Next up is make-up…. the problem is you’re an ah’ natural girl and besides applying mascara you’re lost when it comes to eye shadow and lipstick. Recently, I was introduced to Wet n’Wild all over again. Wet n’Wild’s Color Icon™ Eyeshadow Trio takes the guess work out of where your eye shadow goes on your eye lid. The “How To” palette embossed with “eyelid,” “crease,” and “browbone” for easy application is absolutely brilliant. Plus it is enriched with macadamia oil to provide continuous moisture and improve the appearance of skin. In combination with a jet-milled base and silicone technology deliver hours of crease-resistant wear. With shades like “Sweet As Candy” and “Don’t Steal My Thunder” you’re sure to get your Sass on for the big night. If you’re like me you don’t use too much lipstick you want something that doesn’t require much upkeep. Wet n’Wild MegaLast® Lip Color lasts for 4-hours with a semi-matte cream finish that will give you confidence when you walk into the room.
After your night on the town with your Valentine a quick spray with Body Fantasies – twilight Mist is sure to mesmerizing your Valentine behind closed doors.
