Make your own romantic candleholder #ChickfilamomsDIY

I was a mom on a mission. I really wanted to do something a little special for Valentine's Day. We always go out a day or two after a Valentine's Day to avoid the mobs so we make a special dinner at home every year. My daughter is a tween now so I really needed some creative ideas to step up my game and make it fun for all of usl. The timing was perfect and I realized I had the secret weapons to create a romantic table setting with a candle holder. What were my secret weapons, I know you are eager to know. Well, I had some ideas about a soup container and some tissue roses.

I had been thinking, thinking, thinking for a few weeks now about how I could upcycle a soup container from my Chick-fil-A Chicken Tortilla Soup. The soup was perfect for a busy day when I was rushing to get from client to client but I had a little task at hand. As a Chick-fil-A mom, I wanted to be a creative mama and come up with a way to reuse and re-purpose my Chick-fil-A soup container. 

This was super easy and as you can see the project came out so pretty. You can make it in minutes and this pretty candle holder is perfect for any romantic date night at home. It is a great project even if you have small tots because the fabric rose petals are easy for adults or kids to handle. You could use different colors like pink, purple or red or mix and match to create the decor look you desire. All you need is a simple or sparkly battery powered tealight candle, a clean Chick-fil-A soup container and fabric rose petals from the craft or dollar store. Arrange the candle in the center and add the rose petals in your desired pattern. Turn on your tea light when you are ready for romance and enjoy!

Beauty Box 5 February 2017 Put Your Best Kiss Forward @beautybox5 #sosusancosmetics #jeanpierrecosmetics #tintbeauty #styleessentials #beautybox5

Disclosure: I was not financially compensated for this post. I received the products for review purposes. The opinions are my own, based on my personal experience with the products.



I love it....Beauty Box five has the fun beauty ideas for every day of the year whether it is spring, summer, fall or winter.  My little blue box from BB5 helps me manage to keep it all together at work and at home to freshen up my glam look no matter what the day holds for me.  BB5 shows you how you can squeeze in quality beauty time into even the days you gotta speed things along with a few little special products.  Check out all the trendiest of autumn fashions now that the long, hot days of summer are starting to fade! Don't forget to share your fave finds and share with friends too. Take a peek at a few beauty goodies to go along with your pretty fashions and maybe grab a few extra for friends. A BB5 subscription makes a great gift any friend would appreciate all year long.



Everyone loves getting the inside scoop. I like trying new beauty products from sunscreens to lipsticks and find that I often find new faves.  That is one of the great things about BB5.  You can try lots of new things and sub in new favorites without being stuck with a huge bottle of this or that. I happens to the best of us even with green intentions. Sometimes I look at a product in the store but I worry it might not be for me and I don't want to spend all that money if I don't know that I really like it.  Who needs something else to sit on the bathroom shelf or take up more room in a drawer? I would always feel guilty. Every once in a while you get lucky and the store has a sample or perhaps a beauty company sends you a sample and you get to try it first.  That is the premise behind BB5.

The ideal solution for all of us is brought to you by Beauty Box 5. They understand and created their great beauty sampling box program. Beauty Box 5 is an amazing subscription beauty box sampler that is delivered right to your doorstep (or mailbox) filled with a combination of 5 brand new cosmetic samples monthly, quarterly or annually. You can start out at just $12 a month or save more by getting a longer subscription. 

Signing up to receive Beauty Box 5 each month is a great new way for anyone from teens to moms and even a savvy fashionista Gramma to sample new cosmetic products and see what works for you. Good skin care and the joy of beauty has no age limit!  Each month they include tips and tricks for the products on the back of this little card below to help you get the most out of your beauty samples each month.



Beauty Box 5 is always on the lookout for the latest new items to make the best matches for your own personal taste and lifestyle.  The prices are reasonable too. You can get a Beauty Box 5 monthly for $12, quarterly for $30 or annually for just $99.  Shipping is always free.  A fun way to check out lots  of the new beauty stuff out there without a whole lot of $$ investment. The great part is that if you like something, you can just up and buy the full size item, right?  Much better than buying a full size you-know-what-beauty-item and paying a fortune and then it sits in the makeup bag gathering dust because it doesn't work for you.

Beauty Box 5 mixes it up with their brands and keeps things adventurous. They source from a mix of niche, luxe, regular drugstore, vegan and eco-conscious brands.  One month you might get hair care, nail care, makeup, skin care, fragrances or even beauty accessories or a mix of any of the above.  I love the suspense!  You will get a carefully curated blend of travel, full-size and deluxe samples from their most current collection.



I just received the February Put Your Best Kiss Forward box this week.  The February theme is all about the lips.  Don't forget to squeeze in just a little touch of pampering for those lips especially with Valentine's Day almost here. Beauty Box 5 always has all the tools and tricks to help you look pretty from your head to your toes.  Okay, but just how do you get your hair, lips, eyes and nails looking just so? Let BB5 help you out! The team at Beauty Box 5 wants to remember you are it is all about taking care of yourself.  They show you just how to style your hair and eliminate the frizzies. They give you the tools to freshen up your nails super fast and glam them up with hot winter colors.  Just as often they tuck in moisturizers and even a gentle wash for the face or body. This month the focus is on the skin and hair. Beauty Box 5 is here with a ton of special treats to help you along the way.  Here is the scoop on the amazing treats that were in this month's sweet sea blue box:

As always, my box was filled with of lovely goodies that I could not wait to try. There were treats for my hands, face and body tucked in there this month.  There were several special items to keep me looking fresh and alluring wherever I go-or even if I stay home.  Even if I am home or staying local, I will still be looking good with all my goodies stashed in my bag.



The first item in this box is So Susan Colour Hybrid. I am always looking for a pop of color for my cheeks and something bright for my lips and this one does it all. Yes, it works as a lip color and as a cheek color or blush. If you love a bit of a flirty flush, you are going to enjoy this dual cream-mousse pigment that works just as well for your lips as it does for your cheeks. What could be better than a double duty cosmetic like this one in a bright compact tube? It is a space saver in my makeup bag and is ideal for travel or on the go. This pretty color looks great on pretty much any skin tone and adds a bit of fullness to the lips too.  You only need a little bit to add some color to your cheeks or you can dot a bit on the center of your lips and blend outward to brighten up your day. This product is easy to use too.  Retail $17.50



Style Essentials Pur-Lisse Pur-Lip Glow is the perfect way to add a bit of lightly tinted shine to your lips. I need something to keep my lips moisturized but I need color so this is a winner for me especially in the winter. I tend towards dry lips especially in the cold weather so it can be challenging because I also need some color on my lips. This moisturizing balm is great for those times when I just want a bit of color. Some days I am just not looking for anything bright but I love that I can swipe on moisture and a bit of natural looking color and shine. Another option for this moisturizing balm is to layer it on top of a matte color to add a bit more shine. Either way it feels great on my lips and looks pretty even by itself.  Retail $4.00.


Tint Beauty Unicorn Liner is a great match to the Unicorn Lip below! These come in tons of beautiful colors that run the rainbow from brights to muted neutrals. This slim liner makes it easy to outline and define your lips with the creamy formula. It glides across your lips smoothly and makes a great base for the Tint Beauty Unicorn Lippie. Use this as your base and add the ultra-pigmented color from Tint Beauty and your beautiful color will stay on all night long.  Retail $7.00.
  


Tint Beauty Unicorn Lippie is a great match to the Unicorn Liner shown above! The liner and ultra-pigmented, matte liquid lippie comes in oodles of gorgeous colors that are perfect for any occasion. You can go super bright or keep in low key with muted neutrals. The Unicorn Lippie Collection glides on easily over your lined or even unlined lips. It was formulated to last for hours and it really does. You can eat, drink and enjoy your day or evening. This smooth gloss glides across your lips smoothly and stays even better when you pair it with the Unicorn Liner. Retail $9.00.



The final product is the Jean Pierre Cosmetics Pink Moisturizing Lip Mask. Now you can splurge just a tiny little bit and feel like a real celebrity without breaking the bank. These adorable lip masks come in a set of 5 and let you prep like star for your next big date or event. These moisturizing masks are filled with collagen, vitamins and minerals to help prep your pretty pout. They are super easy to use too. You just place on clean and dry lips then smooth onto the skin. You can relax for 15 minutes while your lips absorb all that goodness. Once your remove them, you can gently rub in the remaining moisture.   Retail $5.00
