With Thanksgiving tomorrow (I'm celebrating with family but will be back here Friday) I thought I would share 3 of my favorite cranberry beauty DIY tricks

Cranberry is a natural preservative and an excellent exfoliant for skin. So before you make your Aunt Bea's famous cranberry sauce, save a few of them for these super fast (I know y'all are busy!) DIY ideas. You're going to love them. Tell me your faves!

Get ready for your skin glow and feel refreshed.

  • This cold scrub will wake you up and your skin, too. Perfect for when you're up early.

  • Save this for after you've survived Thanksgiving and Black Friday.  All you need is 15 minutes.

  • 2 ingredients and perfect for acne-prone skin.

Which one of these interested you the most?

I asked my sister to describe me in one word. I was expecting awesome, funny, intelligent, loving, or maybe happy.

She chose prepared. Prepared! I wanted something cool, like, well, cool. But she's right--I've accepted my fate. I'm admittedly the person you call when you need something, if you're in a crisis, or possibly a zombie attack. 

I carry this sense of being prepared for any situation into what I literally carry, like in my bag. Recently I took my prepared self to Walmart to stock up on essentials: 

What essentials? Date night essentials, that is! Here's what I picked up:

But that's just a sneak peek of what I use, so let's check out the 10 Date Night Essentials You Need.

1-Emergen-C Chewables
  • Y'all, these are the BEST. I'm not just prepared, I'm a germaphobe, too. Yay! Who else is? Confess! I love that these come in chewable form. More Healthy Days, More Healthy Nights!

2-Mints or Gum
  • I think for a date night, this goes without saying. Everyone needs these. All the time.

3-Advil Tablet Vial

  • I get these in the travel section and prefer this small container. Use Advil tablets for headaches, minor arthritis and other joint pain, muscle aches and pains of the common cold. 

4-Phone Battery
  • Because every single blind date I've ever been on has been awful, I make sure my phone is charged and has a back up, so I can arrange to cut the night short. #sorrynotsorry
  • Soft hydrated lips are a part of my daily life, so date night is no exception! 
  • This one is 100% natural so lips are always kissable.

6-Artificial Sweetner
  • I might be prepared, but being graceful is definitely not me. I use this when I notice a grease spot from a food accident on my shirt or pants. Pour it on and allow it to set and it will soak up the oil. Wipe away.
  • I also will use this to make a quick sugar scrub on my hands with a little soap.
  • Because heartburn happens, y'all. May take 1 to 4 days for full effect. Use as directed.

8-Lip Liner
  • This one is surprising, right? The color lasts longer than a gloss or some lipstick finishes, and won't melt, should I accidentally leave it in the car. I add the ChapStick Total Hydration on top of it. I keep it in a neutral color that goes with everything.
  • Be sure to fill in the entire lip.
9-Hand Sanitizer
  • Did I mention that I'm a germaphobe?
10-A Cute Clutch
  • Throw these items in, along with my wallet, phone and keys, and I'm set for date night! Red is my COLOR, y'all.
What are your date night essentials?

Extra Elle:
  • Getting my hair done today--one of my fave things ever.
  • I'm trying to get exactly 1.5 million (slight exaggeration) things done before I leave for my trip back home. Wish me luck that I get them done! #stressed
