Whether you are locked in with your other half or unfortunately locked apart, we are all in need of a romance glow up.
Cue this series we like to call: Stay in Date Ideas
It’s important to stay connected. It’s equally as important to feel like there is something special in life to look forward to. This week, make it a point to set up a timeframe for a “date night.” Here, you and your partner can put in the effort to look and feel your best. Our idea for this week is a modernized twist on the “Netflix & chill” phenomenon. We call it “Wine & Face Masks.” So let’s cuddle up in bed, slap on a face mask, and pour ourselves a big bowl–I mean glass– of our favorite wine. Or honestly just skip the dishes altogether and snuggle up with the whole dang bottle. What can we say? It’s quarantine.
Stay in & Face Mask
There are some amazing stay in beauty mask options out there. Especially some that won’t make you dump your whole piggy bank just to buy one night’s use. While on your grocery run this week, choose your local Target instead. Take a quick face mask adorned stroll down the beauty aisle for a relaxing non-covid-required, hydrating face mask that I’m pretty sure you’d prefer to wear. Target has tons of mask options, many that sell for just a few dollars. Whether you prefer clay, mud, sheet, peel, or cream, Target’s got ya covered.
Que Bella is just one of the many brands that they carry which offers “single” use face mask packs for just $1.99. The best part is–there’s definitely more than one use per pack. Massage on half or a quarter of the packet, then toss the rest in a Stasher bag for safekeeping and later use. Still not looking to leave the house at all? Target, as well as many other online stores such as Amazon, Walmart, CVS, Walgreens, Rite Aid, and Ulta, have all of these mask options and more available for online delivery right to your doorstep.
Stay In & Wine
Once you’ve slathered yourself up with some moisturizing bliss, you can’t forget about the wine! Many of your local grocery stores offer decent wine at very low prices, some as low as 2.99! While I cannot speak for the tastiness of every single cheap bottle, here are a few that we’ve tried and liked in my household. Trader Joe’s currently carries Purple Moon wines, which are each under $5 a bottle, as well as their own brand of various grape varieties that range from $3.99 a bottle to $12.99. We’ve personally tried the Purple Moon Shiraz and Trader Joes Coastal Cabernet Sauvignon which are both rich and delightful companions for your quarantine binge-watching snuggle in bed. Another one of our favorites has been California Roots, which is a 1.5L option at a solid $9.99. Can we say, “what a bang for your buck?”
Now that you’ve got the goods all in place, snuggle into bed and team up with your partner for an uber relaxing Netflix binge & chat.
The mask will bring out your skins best, the wine will bring out your most honest conversation, and the beauty of your relationship will reap the benefits.
I’ll be doing this date night idea too, so let me know how it works out for you!
