Simple but Mauve-olous Valentine

So how did your Valentine's day celebration peeps?  Hubby and I  just stayed home because both of our children  was feeling under the weather.  We didn't even go to church for the same reason.  The kids were fevered for two nights and they are still recuperating from it.  Although the fever is gone, the coughing is still bad.  I am just glad that they are  off today from school, it gives them an extra day to  get well and hopefully get back to their own selves and go to school tomorrow.  
A year ago today
We only exchanged cards and I cooked for  our family date at home.  For me, the best celebration of love is  with your family.  You don't need extravagant gifts to show  your  feelings for them. Just being there and showing them how much you care  is enough.
 Glad to have this  month's Beauty Box 5 to play with.  Staying at home doesn't mean you have to be looking dull, a little sparkle on and lathering up  can brighten up your mood.  Included in this month's box  is Manna Kadar Beauty's 3 in 1 shadow - highlight and blush fantasy, Elizabeth Taylor's Thank Me Later eye shadow primer, Starlooks custom lip liner in sultry sangria, Epic Blend's premium lip balm, and Hemp Nation's kiwi mango body wash.
I love this  custom lip liner in sultry sangria.  A perfect tool to have if you want to create  a trendy shade and  look mauve-olous!
This 3-in-1 shadow  highlight and blush in fantasy  is perfect  in creating a rose gold pigment look.  A great way to accent your eyes and cheek with a soft glow.  I don't use make up very often but for special occasion, a simple  touch up is great.
This eye shadow primer is what you need if you want to get the best  color payoff and prevent creasin.  You can smooth this lifesaver  onto your lid before applying your favorite shadow.
I love this body wash infused with exotic kiwi and mango.  I used it when I showered and the fruity smell makes you feel relaxed.  My daughter even tried it in her  hot bath.
This Epic BLend  premium lip balm is my favorite   this month because the weather here is  terrible that it makes opur lips so dry and cracking.  The root beer flavor is so addicting that if you put it on your lips  before bed, you'll have a very soft lips when you wake up.
So that's the round up for this months Beauty Box 5.  
A simple celebration with a mauve-olous look made for a perfect Valentine's date at home.  Hubby's birthday is three days agter the Valentine's day so we don't normally celebrate for the heart's day.  It's Valentine's  day almost everyday in our home anyway.

  1. We don't typically do a lot for Valentine's Day because my husband's birthday is today's before this. But if we do we try to find something small just to give each other like maybe a dessert that I make and then sit at home and watched maybe a romantic movie.
