Ready for Date Night!

After 27 years of marriage, Mr. B and I strive to make dating a priority.  We agree with all of those who say it is important for our relationship.  The short time of our empty nest life was really fun…but now children are in house and living nearby, so we are busier and just have to make sure that dates are added in!
Friday night is the best night to catch some time alone, but it poses a few “challenges” for me…beauty wise, that is!  By Friday, I am weary and worn.  If you add that with my seasonal allergies (peaking right now with Mountain Cedar) then my eyes often reflect the fatigue I am feeling.  But, with not much time in between work and going out...what can I do?
This is why when Le Metier de Beaute sent me a new product…The Ultra Hydration Eye Mask Duo designed to restore, revive, and refresh my tired eyes…I thought perfect to prepare me for date night!  When the package first arrived, I noticed the cooling factor could be enhanced by placing the eye mask in the refrigerator…so I did that immediately…in San Antonio, TX, we can use as much cooling as possible.
Place in the refrigerator for extra cooling!!
This is a translucent, seaweed-based eye mask which delivers intense hydration for 15 minutes.  So, I rushed home after school, opened the refrigerator (looked past the tempting food) and reached for the mask.  I applied it for the 15 minutes while deciding what I would wear for our date out.  I was excited to think that the redness from my allergy-eyes would be gone and my puffiness from tired eyes would be gone…so Mr. B could look longingly into these eyes!  The cooling effect also helped to put me at ease and place my busy school day behind me.

The results??  Well decide for yourself…here is what I wore to join my husband for a casual meal out…

This is a fabulous product which made a huge difference in how I looked for my date.  I also wore Le Metier de Beaute eye shadow, lip color and nail polish.  (I loved it when a friend told me I looked so much younger than my husband….in reality, I am five years older!!)  For those of you in San Antonio interested in trying these products, just stop by Saks Fifth Avenue at North Star Mall and ask for Carol or call for an appointment at 210-341-4111.
Please tell her that over50feeling40 sent you.  
The man who does my pedicures commented on the quality of this polish...how smooth
and beautifully it goes on.
Then, on Tuesday, go visit the other date night fashions at either JILL or ADRIENNE'S blogs.
Have a wonderful Tuesday and why not plan a date for this weekend!
