Dress Up Your Date Night with a Pretty Jeweled Headband #BeHealthyForEveryPartOfLife #ad #cbias

#BeHealthyForEveryPartOfLife #CollectiveBias

As a mom of nine, I'm always packing a huge bag or two everywhere I go. On date nights, it's nice to take a small, pretty purse. It's a way of telling myself that this night is about me and my husband---no diapers or sippy cups needed! I take along just a few essentials---and never money. Even though it all comes out of the same account, my husband wants to treat me so I've got to keep my cards and cash at home! A few things I do take include, Advil, ChapStick Total Hydration, and Emergen-C. I definitely don't want a headache ruining my evening and I can use Advil tablets for headaches, minor arthritis and other joint pain, muscle aches and pains of the common cold. ChapStick has always been a favorite and the ChapStick Total Hydration line visibly renews lips for a healthier, more youthful look. Finally, it's always a good idea to carry Emergen-C when I'm going out---especially during this season of colds and flu. With over 20 varieties of vitamin supplement drink mixes, Emergen-C offers the formula, flavor, fix, and FUN you’re looking for! When I order water at dinner and add some Emergen-C, I'm boosting my immune system while saving my cash and calories for the delicious meal.

I found all of these items at Walmart in the pharmaceuticals section. The Advil was in the travel items bins, the ChapStick Total Hydration was on an end cap, and then Emergen-C was near the cold and flu medicine. I like that all of these products are compact so they fit discretely in my purse. What kinds of things do you do to prepare for a great night out? Here's a fun and simple idea to dress up your date night---a jeweled headband!

I have a lot of vintage jewelry that was given to me after my great grandma passed away. Rather than let it just sit in boxes, I like to use it to dress up things I'll use regularly. This pretty headband took minutes and looks super cute dressed up or down.

I started with an old fabric-covered headband that wasn't my style. (Actually, I may have stolen this from my daughter...shhh...) I pulled off the fabric down to the clear plastic.

Next, I used an extra strength glue stick to tack down this piece of thick lace and added a ribbon on top. I found a vintage ribbon with some pretty metallic thread in it to catch the light.

Finally, I used a hot glue gun to attach vintage earrings and buttons. I used wire cutters and pliers to pull the backs from the earrings so they'd lay flat against the headband.

Voila! A gorgeous head piece done in minutes!
