Valentine’s Day signals Date Night (or day) for most couples. I have found that my husband and I have better Date Night‘s when I feel beautiful before the date, throughout the date, and after the date as well. To do this I usually have a pamper day which involves doing my nails, taking a bubble bath while using a face mask, and making sure my makeup looks flawless for our date. Whether we’re going out for a movie during the day or we’re going out for dinner.
For my nail look I decided to do a Reverse French Manicure. Essentially, I use a white polish over most of my nails and then I use a pale pink for the tips. I make sure to put a base coat on before I start painting my nails and a top coat over the top when I finish.
This is the finished look. You can do whatever nail art design, or non-design, you want to do. Just as long as you think your nails look gorgeous.
Once my nails dry I run a warm bubble bath, making sure to light a candle while it is running. I soak in the tub for a bit letting the warm water wash away any worries I might have for our date. Towards the end of my bath I put on my face mask and relax a bit more before finally getting out of the tub.
To be honest, I also want the items to be fairly affordable (especially if they’re ones that might not get used that often) and that I can swing by my local Wal-Mart to pick up. All of the items in the picture, and most of what was used in the video, were purchased at my local Wal-Mart store.
For our date I’m planning on wearing something comfortable yet stylish. The reason that I’m gong to do this is because if I’m wearing something that makes me uncomfortable then ultimately I won’t feel beautiful for our date, which isn’t a good sign for later. A pair of cute but comfy dressy jeans, a nice cute top, and a cute pair of shoes are all I need to feel beautiful.
Knowing my husband we’ll probably go out to dinner somewhere local, although I would LOVE to be able to talk him into trying a service like Plated for special occasions like this. After dinner we’ll probably either go to a movie, or in a more likely scenario we’ll stop by the same local Wal-Mart and pick up a bag of popcorn kernels and butter along with some other snacks and head back to the house. Once we’re back at the house we’ll probably pop some popcorn to share with Lila and watch some movies on Vudu before heading to bed.
After the Date
Like I said before feeling beautiful doesn’t just stop at the start of the date. It continues throughout the date…and after too. On Valentine’s Day, or any special occasion, to keep feeling beautiful I make sure to have a comfy but cute pair of pajamas that are new for that holiday, a candle for the bedroom, good music, and a few extras like rose petals and some K-Y (let’s be real here, we have seen it in the store and after the commercials we’ve been itching to give it a try).
