Get Ready for Date Night #PGMom {Giveaway}

When was the last time you had a date night with your partner? I think our last date night was in early December, when Swiffer sent Hubs and me to a Raptors game. That was a fun night, but weather and traffic meant we didn't get downtown early enough for the dinner we had planned to start our evening. The ACC has Hero Burgers though, and we had in-seat service for drinks and sushi, so it turned out great.

We are notoriously bad at date night, though we have managed a few in the last year. Like our overnight date to attend the Starlight Children's Gala last spring. That was date night done right - complete with getting all dolled up, a curling iron, lipstick, and everything! Booking the hotel room gave us extra time together and allowed us to fully enjoy a much needed late night of fun and laughter and dancing.

Tomorrow is Valentine's Day, and I know plenty of folks will be planning a romantic night on the town, or a cozy dinner at home. Whether you're heading out or staying in, why not make the night feel extra special by giving yourself a pampering style treatment? As moms we often don't take the time to do special things for ourselves. That can mean different things for different people, but for me, styling my hair, giving myself a manicure, or just taking the time to put on lipstick before heading out the door goes a long way to putting a smile on my face. As a P&G Mom, Pantene Pro-VCOVERGIRL and Crest have sent me some products and tips to help me feel my best for our next date night (or any time!), and I want to share them with you!

These Pantene Pro-V products are designed to build body in your style and strength in your hair, featuring damage-defying anti-oxidant technology. I just washed and conditioned with this for the first time, so I can't speak to long-term effects, but my hair feels and smells great. White chocolate is what came to mind in the shower. It's got some nice bounce as well, even without the Booster Spray.

Stylist Tip: Pantene Consulting Stylist, Justin German, recommends using the whole collection in order to maintain the full-haired look every day. When using the PowerFull Body Booster Spray, he suggests separating your hair to apply at the root, pulling the product through the ends. Follow these directions and you will look like you’ve just stepped out of the salon in time for date night!
My tip for great body and fullness? Be sure to use a big, round brush to section off pieces and blow dry on a cooler setting.

COVERGIRL's new Colorlicious Lipstick comes in 36 shades and is enriched with shea, avocado and aloe butter, so not only are you sure to find the right shade for you, but your lips will feel soft and conditioned too. I'm giving #335 Tantalize a test run. Nice and creamy going on and it's got just enough brown to tone down the pink to a great shade for me.

Pro Tip: COVERGIRL Makeup Pro, Veronica Chu suggests creating a defined lip shape by using the pointed tip of the lipstick in an “X” motion at the Cupid’s bow for enhanced precision. After this, fill in the rest of your lip with your Colorlicious shade for a bold pout!

Finally, to make your new lip shade of choice pop, brighten up your pearly whites with the newest edition to the Crest Whitestrips collection, Crest 3D White Whitestrips Luxe Supreme FlexFit. These Whitestrips are sure to do the trick with their advanced FlexFit technology for the perfect fit.
