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
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
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!

  1. You are radiant, dear Pam. Mr. B. will certainly appreciate!!! It's good to hear that some couples are still in love after so many years.
    DH and I have been married for 22 years and we are still in love too… It's a privilege to be able to say that.
