Pink & Lace Look for a Non-Traditional Valentine’s Day

Valentine’s Day has always been my favorite holiday. I’m such a die-hard romantic where all things lovey dovey, cute, sweet, and couple related makes me extra happy!

Even though every day spent with your significant other should be just as important as Vday, it is still fun to have a day solely dedicated to being over the top romantic!

With Valentine’s Day comes lots of pinks, reds, and whites. I’ve always seen Vday as a day to wear a dress and heels.

To prepare for the holiday this year I tried to go for a non-traditional look that is still romantic, but also a tad bit edgy.

I decided to pair a white, lace crop top from Forever 21, with a light pink poncho from Kerisma. Throughout the day numerous people asked was the top and poncho one piece and complimented my look for styling it as such! 🙂

With my top and poncho combo, I also wore brown Hudson jeans and black, military-style heeled boots from Nordstrom. I feel like this look was a perfect balance of chic, modern, and romantic.

Thank You Good Samaritan

This won’t be an average post and you will soon see why ❤

Dear Umbrella Lady,

I called you by that name because you gave my boyfriend and I an umbrella in the pouring down rain, a few days ago, after we came from our IHOP date.IMG_20160721_093852

You didn’t have to stop your car in traffic and shout out the window that you have an umbrella for us, but you did.

And I think more people should be as considerate and gracious as you are. I am thankful that there are still people in this world who truly care about others. You made our day.

Love,
A Not Rain-Soaked Couple ^-^

P.S. The flowers are from my job and they look beautiful and this is a beautiful post…hence the flowers lol.

Stay positive and lovely everyone!!! 

What to do for Date Night?

Every couple goes on dates, whether it’s to the movies, the zoo, for a walk in the park, wherever you go, it will definitely be a fun time spent with your significant other. The problem occurs when you don’t know what to do or where to go for your date night and you get in a rut. This list will help you get out of that rut and jump into a whole new era of date night ideas.

1) Cook your favorite meal together

If you love to eat shrimp scampi and your husband loves pasta and steak, why not set aside a few hours and cook both of your favorite meal. The two of you will have fun helping each other cook and you will definitely enjoy the meal! There will probably be food left over and that can be saved for a cute at home dinner date later in the week.

2) Have a spa day

You both have been working hard at work all week and you two really could use some rest and relaxation. Setting aside a Friday or Saturday night for back massages, foot rubs, and facials, could really be beneficial for you. You will feel happier, less stressed, and much more relaxed.

3) Stargaze/Cloud watch

Depending on if it is night or day, stargazing or cloud watching can be a perfect calming date idea. Grab a blanket or two and lay in the grass and just look up at the sky. Tell each other the pictures you see in the clouds or the constellations you can name or just relax and talk about how your day went.

4)  See a comedy/improv show

Who doesn’t love a good laugh? Laughter is great for a healthy relationship and going to a comedy or improve show will add a lot of joy to your relationship. Sit back, relax, and be entertained for an evening and just forget about work, the kids, and any stresses you have.

5) Play Truth or Dare

Yes, this may seem a little childish to some people, but who says adults can’t have fun as well. Playing truth or dare with your partner can spice up your relationship and get the two of you sharing secrets and doing fun and silly activities. Whenever you two get bored just start asking the other to do some dares or reveal a secret. This is an easy way to have fun right in your home.

6) Go to a drive-in movie theatre

Put a spin on the traditional movie going date. Why not hop in the car and go to a drive in theatre where the two of you can relax and cuddle in the car and watch great movies. It’s a way to get out of the house and be entertained, while still being able to be comfortable and have some privacy.

7) Take a dance class together

Consider taking an upbeat salsa dancing class or a slow paced and romantic waltz class. The two of you will be learning a new skill together, getting a workout, and having fun! Once you learn the dances, you can have mini dance sessions around the house. Twirling and dancing around can make you feel youthful, vibrant, and bring the two of you closer together as a couple.
