Do you ever find yourself scrambling to get ready for a date night? Last week, my husband and I decided to have a date day while the kids were in school and we planned it two days out! Of course, I wanted to plan a special place for us to go, an outfit I would look attractive in, the jewelry and makeup I'd wear... but, I also wanted my breath to be fresh, too! It was a lot to figure out in two days and I didn't have a lot of time to devote to it. I decided I wanted to be a "fresh go-getter", because I know LISTERINE® boosts my confidence and makes me want to Bring out the Bold in my life! I wanted this date day to be a special day we'd remember, so I am sharing the tips I used to plan this special day in a moments notice!
Tips for Planning an Impromptu Date Day
1. Pencil in a date.
It seems whenever my husband and I plan a date day, one of the kids get sick and then we have to reschedule it. So, you may even want to plan a 'back-up' day, just in case the first day doesn't work out!
2. Pick a place or decide what you want to do
My husband and I usually do two date days a year and we switch it up a little each year, but we always come back to some of our favorite places. For this particular date day, we decided on a crepe place for breakfast and a little outlet shopping before the winery opened! Before lunch at the winery, my husband was kind enough to take some outfit photos for me, so I could show off my outfit I selected for our date. Then, we ate lunch and had enough time to sit and talk for awhile to enjoy the view, nice day and conversation.
3. Decide what you want to wear
The night before, I planned out my outfit and hung it up outside my closet door. I put my shoes, clutch, jewelry and LISTERINE® POCKETPAKS® on the floor, so I wouldn't forget anything.
I wanted to look nice and a little dressed up, but I also wanted to be comfortable still. I knew it was going to be in the 70's that day and we'd be outside for the majority of it, so I didn't do layers and selected a breathable blush top and a flowy chambray skirt. I decided to add pops of color with my accessories and added a colorful necklace, earrings and clutch.
4. Shop for any little extras you may need.
Sometimes you need to run out for something for your date day, such as a new lip color, sunscreen or LISTERINE® COOL MINT® Antiseptic Mouthwash and POCKETPAKS®.
I found the LISTERINE® COOL MINT® Antiseptic Mouthwash and POCKETPAKS® at Walmart in their Mouthwash aisle.

In the morning, I take out my Invisalign and wash it, brush my teeth, floss and then I rinse out my mouth with LISTERINE® COOL MINT® Antiseptic Mouthwash.
5. Enjoy your date day!
How to 'Freshen' Up
Once we got to the winery, I knew I wanted my breath to be fresh after drinking two (eek!) cups of cappuccino mochas at the crepe place. I didn't want my husband to smell my coffee breath while we had conversation at a small table outside at the winery. I had packed along a LISTERINE® POCKETPAKS® in my clutch, because the size is so conveniently small.
Just pull a piece out and stick it on your tongue and it melts! And, say bye-bye to bad breath and hello to good breath!
My husband and I took a nice little stroll around the pond (and there was even a swan!), after lunch. It was the perfect day!
I have been using LISTERINE® COOL MINT® Antiseptic Mouthwash for awhile, because my dentist has recommended it to me and I need to take better care of my teeth since I am currently going through Invisalign. The LISTERINE® COOL MINT® Antiseptic Mouthwash kills 99.9% of bad breath germs and germs that lead to gum disease (in lab studies), 24-hour germ protection (with twice daily use) and reduces 52% more plaque than brushing and flossing alone.
The LISTERINE® POCKETPAKS® Cool Mint are also great in that they also kill 99.9% of bad breath germs and germs that lead to gum disease (in lab studies), freshens breath on the go, kills 99% of odor-causing bacteria in 30 seconds and they dissolve instantly!
