I’ve mentioned this before, but I’m pretty low key when it comes to planning dates. It’s usually centered around “I’VE GOT A FIVE DOLLAR OFF COUPON!” And so then we go. Kyle will change out of his gym shorts and I may or may not change out of my sweatshirt. We also live together, so the excitement of going out together isn’t what it was last fall when I’d nervously apply 8 layers of deoderant and kept up on my manicures and pedicures.
Since I now work out 6 days a week, it’s more important to me to be taking care of my hair and skin rather than get dolled up with all the extra make up products. CO Bigelow sent me a package of products including the Rose Salve and Mentha Lip Shine that I’ve already been using for years (hello soft lips and minty breath!) along with their lemon body lotion and Not Your Ordinary Daily Shampoo and Conditioner and Lemon Sugar Body Scrub. So, I’d rather not smell like an armpit on a dinner date, but also not have to worry about reapplying eyeliner and all that jazz.
For this particular date night, when I tried out all the products at once like a mini spa morning, we packed our bags, got dressed in this exact outfit posted on the blog last summer and headed to the little tourist German town in Michigan called Frankenmuth, where Kyle grew up. I’d never been there so we visited all the candy shops, general stores and ate dinner at his favorite hometown restaurant, Tiffany’s, and took James to the dog park to test his agility skills and let him run like a crazy little man.
CO Bigelow supplied me with the items above!
