Getting Ready for Date Night Featuring Lipsense



Date night is highly coveted in our house. While official dates aren’t consistent, they are an eagerly anticipated break from the chaos that is three children. So you can imagine that when this special night comes around, I want to look my best! I mean we are to the point where my husband compliments me every time I wear makeup, which isn’t a lot #momlife #sorryhunny.  I am not one for lipgloss or lipstick (I drink and eat too much which smudges or fades it). I am no makeup guru, but I recently discovered how much I could elevate my look by adding a little lip color. But what does one do when lipstick just isn’t a good fit?

Enter Lipsense by SeneGence. I was sent a sample by my friend Tori and while I was hesitant (lips aren’t my thing!), I was interested to try it out.  Lipsense’s claim to fame is that the color lasts 18 hours and won’t smudge, budge, or kiss off. Let me tell you- with no exaggeration, this stuff LASTS and the claims are true! From getting ready, to kissing the kids on our way out, to a glass of wine and through dinner, I was so impressed! The color stayed on my lips and looked great. My husband couldn’t stop complimenting me! The color was very flattering and I felt great!

Unconventional Valentine’s Day Outfit

If I am being completely honest, my husband and I have never been huge Valentine’s Day celebrators. Not that there is anything wrong with the holiday, we just never have gone out of our way to make a big deal out of it. I always see people posting these super cute Valentine’s Day outfit options, but they are totally fancier than I would need. So I decided to do a little dress up with a medium-dressy option, something that would be more suited to what we would do.

 Going with the traditional red, because it is Valentine’s Day after all!

I added a little pop of leopard for some fun!

With all the snow and cold winter temps, pants are really a more viable option in New England in February for me!

I had to include this picture: for those of you who don’t know, we are currently rooming with my parents who have a barn filled with horses. This is Zuko, and yes he is taller than me when he stands up. He protects the horses since my parents live in a more rural area. I had no idea he was behind me until my mom showed me after she took the pictures!

How cute are these shoes? Oh, and another dog photobomb.

My husband got me this pearl necklace for our six year anniversary. I thought it was fitting to wear for Valentine’s Day!

Black pants keep the look a little fancier than wearing just jeans.
