Why Mini Golf Makes The Ultimate First Date

July 9th, 2018

First dates can really put your emotions through the wringer, and it’s important to be prepared for anything and everything. Okay, chances are you’ll feel excited, nervous, stressed out and exhilarated; but in today’s world thinking of where to go or what to eat can seem almost as daunting as getting asked out on a date, which is why I had to pipe in and ease those first date jitters. Dating can be nerve-wracking, but finding the perfect date night activity doesn’t have to be, which brings me to this post and why mini golf makes the ultimate…

Why Good Relationships Aren’t Always Convenient

May 12th, 2018

Matt and I have had one heck of a week, and as we gear up for summer and some upcoming changes Matt decided to help out by sitting down and ‘writing’ this blog post for me’. I say ”writing’ with quotation marks because Matt’s idea of writing consists of walking around with his apple earbuds in saying he has writer’s block, and trying to flatter me into writing the post for him, which I guess worked out in his favor because here I am Friday night having to write the post for him because half of this post…

How To Improve Your Boyfriends Style, This Spring

April 4th, 2018

If I’m being honest with you all, which I always strive to do, then I have to tell you that this is one of my favorite videos we’ve filmed to date. Today Matt and I are sitting down to share our style evolution, how I improved Matt’s style, and how you can improve your boyfriend’s style this spring. I would much rather style guys than gals because as a whole I think their style is more malleable. Basically, they are easier to ‘influence’ when it comes to testing out new looks, trying new styles and investing in new…

7 Holiday Traditions to Start with Your Fella

December 17th, 2017

MATT’S OUTFIT:  Corduroy Pants || Wool-Blend Sweater   || Flannel Sports Shirt   AUBREY’s OUTFIT:  Pleated Tartan Wool Twill Dress  || Double-Faced Wool Coat || Shoes    I think we can all agree that traditions are the backbone and the truly magical element that brings this season to life. Each of us, finds ourselves doing out of the ordinary things in public and instead of feeling odd, we feel a sense of comradery from other festive souls. For instance, my siblings and I, year after year, go to the mall dressed in matching outfits to see Santa, for my family’s holiday Christmas card. Now while going to…

Girlfriend’s Guide to Football Sunday

October 8th, 2017

Believe it or not, we are just about halfway through fall, and knee deep in one of fall’s many seasonal amenities…football season. Whether you’re watching football curled up on your couch all Sunday long, or getting dressed up in the appropriate colors to cheer on your local college team (Go UConn Huskies); football seems to be an underlining theme of this season. In the past, I would have complained about the volume of games I’ve recently been pressured to watch, but after moving in with Matt just over a year ago, I’d say my love for football and…

Don’t Overthink Dating

September 29th, 2017

Okay, so every week I check my google analytics to see what posts you guys are currently loving on the blog and every week I see this post from 2014 in the top ten. It was probably one of my first ever blog posts, and I almost regret linking it as the images are eh, the poses are horrid and my grammar is less than up to par, but everyone has to start somewhere right. Anyway, I felt it was time to update this post almost four years later. After re-reading the 2014 post, I realize not much…

Shirt || Skirt || Shoes || Necklace || Matt’s Sweater || Pants     Hey I’ve recently gotten a lot of readers reaching out about one topic specifically, how to make long distance work…in college. & oh have I been there, and done that. For anyone that doesn’t know, Matt (my long term boyfriend) and I have held a relationship for 8 years, HOWEVER, four of those years were via a long distance relationship. I actually attended college in San Diego while Matt attended college in New York, so I’m talking about cross-country long distance, OH BOY.    Before…

Why Fenway Is My Ideal Date Night

August 18th, 2017

Dress (under $100!) || Shoes || Belt (similar listed) || ’47 Brand Hat || Earrings   Matt & I have been quite transparent with you all, when it comes to our love of New England sports. It’s an activity both Matt and I love embracing, and unlike many preppy lifestyle blogs, I’m not talking about polo matches or croquet; no Matt and I are fans of the All American sports aka baseball and football.      The reason why we love these two All American sports so much is plain and simple. There is just something SO inspiring about the cornerstones…

Tee Time Together: Why Sharing a Hobby is Essential

July 9th, 2017

Matt’s Pants c/o || Matt’s Shirt c/o || Dress || Shoes || Scarf I’ve always been a huge fan of the all-American game of, golf. Actually, let me specify, I’m a fan of playing and dressing the part, but NOT a fan of watching it. Anyway, it’s a classic game, the color pallet is ‘je ne sais quoi ‘, and who doesn’t like a sport that includes a cart! Win, win & a win.  While I’ve always been a huge admirer of the sport, I never really took a swing at it (no pun intended) until this past year. Once Matt and…
