Ooh, the glorious anticipation of that hot date, and the wonderful excitement. The way your heart beats faster, and the feeling of a million butterflies in your tummy.

When you look forward to your hot date, it’s just totally awesome, and nothing can dampen your exhilaration. The best thing about it is that when you lie in your bed at night, and you fall asleep, you have sweet dreams about your hot date. That’s just incredibly wonderful.

You may also worry a little about how to get yourself ready, but you can forget about your worries with a smile, because I have just the right kind of advice for you.

Two hours before your hot date knocks on the door, immerse yourself in a lovely warm bath. Add some marvelously fragrant bubble bath, and also 3 drops of patchouli essential oil, 3 drops of ylang-ylang essential oil, 3 drops of lavender essential oil, and 6 drops of almond oil to your bath water, or you can tie two or three chamomile teabags around the tap and let it hang directly in the stream of running water. Chamomile is so relaxing. If you prefer something else, you may want to boil 150g lavender herbal flowers, 150g rosemary herbal leaves, and 150g mint leaves in three litres of water. Infuse for about 20 minutes, and then strain. You can add it to your bath water for an extra special pampering treat. It will make your bath-time a blissful experience. Now lay back, relax, and think happy thoughts…aah…so far so good. Okay, now you can wash your hair with the shampoo of your choice, and leave it in your hair for at least two minutes, so that your hair can get all the benefits of the shampoo. Once the two minutes is up, you can rinse your hair, and apply the conditioner of your choice. The conditioner should stay in your hair for at least five minutes, and once the five minutes is up, you can rinse your hair. Next, if you feel that it’s necessary, you can apply a hair mask of your choice to your hair, and leave it in for about five minutes. Rinse your hair once the five minutes is up.

Inhale the lovely fragrance of the bubble bath, and let your thoughts drift. Okay, now it’s time to shave your armpits and your legs, and anywhere else you may want to shave. The werewolf look is so out! That done, you can wash your face with your favorite facial wash, and after you’ve rinsed your face, you might want to apply an exfoliator, and work the beads gently into your skin with your fingertips. Take your own sweet time, and work it, baby, work it. Good. Now you can rinse your face, and enjoy your soft and glowing complexion, and while you’re at it, you can lather up a loofah, or any other sponge, or even a face cloth with your favorite body wash or some lovely scented soap, and wash your whole body. Now you can rinse your body, and lay back in the warm fragrant bubble bath, and start thinking about your hot date. Let all your thoughts circle around, and around him…aah…fabulous!

Okay, now you can get out of the bath, and be very careful not to slip. You don’t want to slip now, right before your hot date. That would just be downright catastrophic. Dry your hair with a towel, and then keep the towel tightly wrapped around your head. Dry your body with a second towel, and after that, you can grab some tweezers, and go and stand in front of a mirror. Pluck out all the stray hairs from your eyebrows, but be careful. Don’t pluck out too many. That would just be way too awful. Phew! Can you imagine? Okay, now it’s time for the next step. If you want a dazzling smile, you need to brush your teeth, and for good measure, you can gargle with a good mouthwash, while thinking of that first incredible kiss that will sweep you off your feet, if he’s in the mood to kiss you, of course. Make sure that your lips are flake- free by buffing them ever so gently with a lip exfoliator, a clean toothbrush, or add some sugar to a bit of Vaseline, and scrub your lips gently with that concoction. Next, apply some lip balm onto your lips. Your lips will thank you for it. Your skin may feel dry and tight after cleansing, so apply some soothing toner to help to restore the balance of your skin, and also to smoothe your skin. Toner also helps to prepare your skin for the moisturizer. Always use an alcohol-free toner on your skin, since alcohol can really dry out your complexion. Use a toner that contains pro-vitamin B5. It will nourish your skin beautifully. After doing that, you can apply a good moisturizer to your face, and wait about five minutes for your skin to fully absorb the moisturizer. Ooh, your skin will feel so nice and soft.

Finally! Make-up time! Apply your make-up skillfully. You don’t want the guy of your dreams to turn on his heels and run from you. No sirree! So don’t overdo your make-up. You can use black eyeliner for a bit of drama, but not a lot though, because you don’t want to end up looking like a panda. Navy blue is also a great color to try, but come to think of it, any color is fine, as long as you’re happy with it. Also remember to enhance your eyelashes by applying at least two coats of mascara, so that you can flutter your eyelashes seductively at your hot date. You can create a very kissable pout with the lipstick color of your choice, and then drench your lips with some lip gloss. Choose the color of your eyeshadow with great care, because the right color eyeshadow will enhance your eyes beautifully, and your hot date will feel so awestruck that he will gaze deeply into your eyes all night long. That would really make you feel so pleased! Once you’ve applied your eyeshadow, your foundation, powder, blusher and lip liner, you can remove the towel from around your body, and apply some luxurious body lotion all over your body. Body lotion that has a fantastic floral fragrance would be a great choice. Your skin will feel like velvet to the touch. Also choose a body lotion with a subtle iridescent sheen, which is absolutely wonderful for a night out. Wait five minutes for your skin to absorb the body lotion, and while you wait, you can quickly paint your fingernails and your toenails, in the same color as your lipstick, or as close to the same color as your lipstick.

Now you can remove the towel from your hair, and blow-dry your hair with your hairdryer. Once it’s nice and dry, you can brush your hair, and style it in the exact way that you want it. You may want to do your hair up in an elegant chignon, or you may want to pull your hair back into a sophisticated bun, or maybe you feel like plaiting your hair beautifully. You may even feel like adding a flower to your hair, for some awesome va va voom, or you can leave it hanging loosely around your face for a more romantic look. Whatever you choose to do with your hair, you will look totally glamorous. Once you’ve styled your hair, it’s time to spray on some hairspray to keep your style in place.

Remember that you want to look like the ultimate Femme Fatale, or like Aphrodite, the Greek Goddess of love, pleasure, beauty and procreation. Whichever tickles your fancy. So, without further ado, and after all that luxurious pampering, it’s time to slip into some incredibly sexy lingerie, and remember that if your bra fits perfectly, you’ll feel so much sexier. After that you can dress like the star that you are. How about a pair of jeans with a sexy top, or a miniskirt with a very pretty blouse, or a lovely minidress. Take your time in choosing the right outfit. You know the old saying, “First impressions count.” Well, it’s totally true, so take your time. After getting dressed, you can put on some sexy high heeled shoes, and then you can put on some jewellery. Some beautiful earrings, a stunning necklace, and a nice bracelet will do just fine. After all that, you can spritz on some perfume. Choose a perfume with an irresistible and oh, so sensual fragrance. A perfume that’s utterly romantic and totally captivating, and spritz on just enough. If you go overboard, and spritz almost half a bottle of perfume on yourself, then you might just scare your hot date off for good. Okay, after that you can apply some totally fragrant hand lotion to your hands, and voila, you’re ready to knock his socks right off, and while you’re at it, remember to be yourself, and to have loads of wonderful fun. Good luck with your hot date!
