No naming names, but a very important boy in my life recently told me what his perfect day with a girl would be - I had asked of course.
The idea was that I would write about the products id use, makeup, hair care, clothes... you know... that id use if it was me going on that 'date day', truth is, when I read what the day/evening would be, I didn't think about what id be wearing or what makeup id have on - I was too busy trying to settle my tummy full of butterflies and imagining actually being there. Turns out boys can be just as lovely about these things as we always wish they'd be.
I had to really think about all this because to be honest, if the day's as perfect as it should be, you shouldn't be worried about over dolling up. But here goes :)
If you're waking up next to someone it should mean you really like each other, if not love... so chances are you're going to want to look slightly less like you've just woken up and more like they do in the movies...
I really love bareMinerals Pure Transformation night treatment to help stay looking flawless while you sleep and just as you wake up :)
I'm afraid there's not much you can do to keep your hair looking lovely for when you wake up, but a little talc can work wonders if you have slightly greasy hair :)
My 'day date' is spending the day out and about, little bit of shopping, nice walks, having a giggle, doing anything we fancy so id keep makeup simple, but as you don't want to be topping up, id still stick to my Estee Lauder DoubleWear foundation and waterproof Benefit eye makeup :)
I'd also recommend ELF's makeup mist and set.Once you have your base, a teeny bit of blush OR bronzer should be enough and then a sleek line/winged liner with a light coat of mascara to make your eyes stand out.
I'm presuming this would be a day out in the summer so for clothes id go pretty but relaxed, maybe something like...
I don't remember how much I paid for these but any wedges are cute in my opinion for a date day :)
Cute dress or jeans and a pretty top - sorted!
Evening would be a nice meal, some drinks and lots of conversation :)
Id go for heavier/darker eye makeup as there should be lots of looking into each others eyes, but don't forget, this is a date, not a night out clubbing, so avoid all out black smokey eyes and be more adventurous with the smokey look, purples, golds, greens...
Light contouring with a matte bronzer and lip balm instead of a colour.
Outfit could really be anything, think about where you are going and the mood. Keep the outfit simple but make an effort, make sure you don't forget that you are not on the pull, you are with someone special, so switch the revealing clothes for some sexy underwear and keep the outfit elegant.

Hey babba's! This post is literally just about me... getting to know me, the girl behind all the chatter.
You may or may not find it interesting, either way is fine of course :)
So the obvious - My name is Kerri, unless we're being honest, in which case my name is Kerrie~leigh. I'd tell you my middle and last name but to avoid any possible snooping, I'll keep it to myself!
I'm a Pisces and fall for my horoscope on a daily basis.
I am a natural blonde with blue eyes and could do with growing a few inches. I've got my ears, nose, lip, Monroe, belly and tongue pierced, I'm actually terrified of needles so I'm yet to figure out how I ended up with any of them.
I get the giggles a lot and fall asleep if someone plays with my hair. I get hiccups when i'm nervous, that's not cool. I'm a size
4 shoe and couldn't tell you what size I am in clothes because shop's are inconsistent these days :')
Like many girls, I have things id like to change and things I don't mind so much about myself.
I'm a little all over the place but generally tend to know what I want in life.
My parents split when I was little my 'family story' is nothing anyone needs to know. I have been through a hell of a lot in my life so far, this isn't a sob story so i'll spare the details, but I grew up fast and have become a very independent, level headed young woman - or so id like to think.
I love going out on the Harley and admiring custom choppers, OCC can keep me amused for hours. A girl can dream.
I grew up with bikes and fast cars, one day i'll have my own American muscle car and Harley and be one very happy girl!
I write, blog, sing, play guitar, dance, i'm a makeup artist and beautician... and work in childcare.
If I could live every other day cruising 'round Phoenix listening to Blake Shelton and the other days shopping my socks off in the big city, well that would make me super happy too!
The other side of me likes makeup, shoes, magazines, blah blah blah! You know the typical girl stereotype.
I have a thing for Disney, I want to spend Christmas there one year <3
I also want to take one whole day to show someone all my favourite things and places... someone special.
I used to be mega unsociable but have recently got my backside into gear and realised that life is worth living!
I'm certainly no role model, I'm not overly intelligent or pretty, I don't exercise or eat healthily, i've made some rubbish choices in my life but i'm happy :)
I'm not taken but my heart is, maybe it'll be both if my luck picks up!
I have the best friends a girl could ask for and a bestfriend id kill for.
And if you want to know a little more, just ask!
