Girls Night Idea: Hallmark Movies and Wine (12/4/2019)

Hey everybody! I wanted to do a girls night idea but before I get started of course I have to mention that the “girls night” can be for anyone of any gender I just called it a girls night because I host a girls night with my girlfriends at my house almost weekly.

So to get started I just want to say that I truly appreciate my friends because we always have a great time together regardless of where we are. So with this girls night, this was one of the cheaper girls nights we had and it was so much fun. 

Basically all you need is a big bottle of wine (or a favorite nonalcoholic drink if you are under age), some snacks and the hallmark movie channel. My friends and I are obsessed with the Hallmark movie channel we get sucked in to all the stories and they are so much fun to watch so this is definitely some thing that I suggest everyone try out because it is a ton of fun for us!

Hallmark has some amazing but also pleasantly cheesy romance movies for Christmas time ! So we figured the best way to celebrate the holiday season is to curl up next to one another on the couch with a cheap glass of wine and some snacks and just watch Hallmark movies together it was a ton of fun. Even though some of them are cheesy and predictable it was funny to be able to predict what we thought was going to happen and talk about the movies themselves.

Date Night Idea: Aquarium With The Kids (11/25/2019)

Hey everyone! I hope this post finds you well and that you enjoy reading date night posts! This is actually a category that I have been thinking about getting rid of to fit more categories that will be a more well rounded lifestyle posting style. Make sure to leave your comment below if you like these posts or if you would like to see something different!

Anyway, I wanted to do a date night that was family centric because sometimes whether you have kids, cousins, Sisters or brothersor nieces and nephews sometimes you want to involve the kiddies.

My date night idea is to bring your kids to the aquarium for a fun day filled with looking at exotic fish and animals that will be both interesting for you and the children you bring along.

As you know if you have been reading my blog for quite some time I always try every date night that I suggest so I can personally make sure and see if it is a fun time. I, of course would not suggest anything that I, myself, wouldn’t consider to be a good time and that goes for basically everything.  

Ryan and I have tried to do this date night ourselves by bringing our niece with us to the aquarium to have some family fun and spend quality time with our niece. We actually had such an amazing time with our niece at the aquarium and it was great to see how interested she was in everything the aquarium had to offer.

I definitely recommend you try this date idea. I hope you enjoyed today’s post and remember to comment down below what you think of this date idea and make sure to subscribe for email notifications for when I post new content.

Girls Night Idea: Quick Bite And A Drink (11/19/2019)

Hey y’all! Before I get into it of course I have to start off with my message: These girls nights are not specific to one gender! Anyone can participate if they want to! I only call them Girls Night Ideas because I host what my friends and I call a “girls night” where my girlfriends and I get together to do something or to just hangout! Feel free to try these ideas with anyone of any gender of course.

So, to get into the “Girls Night” idea I thought it would be cool to hangout with my girlfriends tonight! We all have pretty busy lives and schedules so it is sometimes really hard to get together. I try to at least see my friends twice a week! My gal pal time is very important to me.

So, instead of doing something extravagant, expensive or that would require a ton of planning or scheduling we decided to do something simple. We went to the closest chain restaurant (Applebees), we got half price appetizers to share, and dollar drinks! It was amazing!

Afterwards we all agreed that we would meet up at Target which is right near out hometown Applebees and go shopping! To make this even more fun you can all decide on where to go shopping afterwards and see who found the best deal at said store.

I hope you enjoyed today’s post and remember to comment down below what you’d do with your friends for a quick get together! Make sure you subscribe for emails to be notified when I post new content.

Date Idea For A Sunday (11/2/2019)

Hey everyone! I wanted to pop on here really quick to give you all an awesome and fun date idea that you can do on any given Sunday. A plus? This date idea could possibly be a super affordable date idea for those that want to save their money (I love inexpensive dates personally because they’re usually super creative, fun and sometimes give you and your significant other a cute or funny story to tell)! Whether you choose to go all out to a fancy place or stay in and have a personal one-on-one experience this date idea will surely be fun.

Ryan decided to take me on a cute little date to get brunch on a random Sunday. It was perfect because we went out to brunch to a beautiful restaurant and then walked around the town for an hour! Honestly a perfect day. I totally recommend going on a date like this with your significant other!

The thing that is really nice about brunch is that you can make any random Sunday where you have nothing to do, into a date night. You’re probably wondering, where is the affordable part of all of this? Well, Ryan and I have also done brunch a few weeks ago but instead of it being at a place we did it at home and it was so romantic making our own pancakes and being all cute and cuddly afterwards!

I recommend this date idea and please remember to comment below if you tried or will try this and how it went. Also, make sure you subscribe for email notifications to be notified when I post new content.

Cute Fall Date Night Idea (10/25/2019)

Hey everyone! I realized something when I was at my sisters pumpkin picking and going on the hayrides. There are not many date nights for fall that actually have to do with NIGHTTIME. Most of the date ideas (other than scary walk-throughs) are during the day/afternoon. What about the people that get home late from work/school and can’t go pumpkin picking at 9PM?! Well, I wanted to break that and write a post about date nights that can actually happen AT NIGHT for all of us!

  1. Carving Pumpkins (Doing this at my sisters house is what sparked this idea)
  2. Bonfire It Out
  3. Make Homemade Apple Cider
  4. Go See/ Rent A (Scary) Movie
  5. Haunted Attraction
  6. Do Some Halloween Decorating
  7. Plan Your Halloween Costumes (Unless you’re me and plan them in August, whoops)
  8. Do Some Fall DIY Projects
  9. Host A Costume Party Together
  10. Go Axe Throwing

I hope you like these date ideas and let me know in the comments below if you decided to try any of them and tell me how it went. Also, remember to subscribe for email notifications to be notified when I post new content.

Helicopter Ride Date, Experience and Outfit (10/7/2019)

Hi everyone! I hope your week is going well, this passed weekend was definitely a busy one for me but it was also extremely fun and unforgettable. I was able to go on a helicopter ride around Manhattan! It was absolutely amazing and honestly breathtaking. It was definitely a different perspective of the city and I was in awe the whole time!

If you are looking for an over-the-top date idea this is definitely it. Bring your significant other on a helicopter ride and then end the day with going to a fancy restaurant in Manhattan. It is so romantic and it gives you such a rush of adrenaline.

It’s also really cool because before you go on the helicopter they ask for the weight of each rider so they can balance out the copter. The ride itself was astonishing because one second you are on the ground and the next you are taking off. It’s also really interesting seeing how helicopters operate up close and hearing the pilot talk to the air traffic control. There are so many emotions going on all at once. At first I wasn’t sure what to expect but then I was nervous because the air traffic around Manhattan is insane, and then I was pretty calm because of the stunning views you get of the city.

For my outfit I figured I would dress a little more of the casual side because I didn’t necessarily know what to expect. So I wore a white tank top, a pair of ripped jeans, a chunky oversize knit yellow sweater and an Adidas baseball cap. My makeup was pretty natural as well.

I loved riding on the helicopter and I really suggest everyone do it! I hope you all enjoyed this post and remember to subscribe for email notifications for when I post new content, Make sure to comment down below what you think of helicopter rides! Would you ever do one?

Date Night Idea: Sojo Spa (10/5/2019)

Hey everyone! I wanted to share a date night that Ryan and I had just recently because I am actually super happy about it and it was such an amazing experience to share together. Ryan and I went to a place called Sojo Spa in Edgewater, New Jersey. The experience was pure bliss and I definitely recommend trying it out.

Together we had booked a couples massage with hot salt stones– when I tell you this is the best massage I’ve ever had I am not kidding. I mean it better be a good massage for the amount they charge for them (lol)! Anyways, we got there and we immediately were instructed to take off our shoes, we were given robes, and we had to put our items into a locker.

After our heavenly massage we went to their multiple spas. We first went into a plain sauna, then we went into the clay room sauna, then the salt room sauna, then the cooling room and that room literally had ice on the walls.

We relaxed on marble heated beds, lounge chairs and even went into a few other interesting rooms they had like the volcanic sand bath. This place also allows you to use their heated rooftop spa pool that overlooks Manhattan. It was definitely well worth the trip! We both had such a good time and it was such a cool place– it felt very exclusive and luxurious.

I hope you enjoyed this post and remember to subscribe for email notifications for when I post new content. Make sure you comment below if you’d want to come to this place!

Best Spooky Date Night Ideas (10/2/2019)

Hey everyone! I am here with your ultimate spooky date night idea list, only if you like spooky stuff– if not then this might be a list of all of your worst fears. I love spooky stuff but sadly Ryan does not so I could never get him to do this stuff with me but I do it with my best friends instead. But if you both love spooky then these date ideas will be right up your ally!

  1. Go see a scary movie- A lot of scary movies come out during spooky season so figure out which one you’d both like to see and go! Make sure you hold on tight to that popcorn though.
  2. Haunted Hayride- I just experienced a haunted hay ride recently and it was actually the scariest thing ever. There is no where to run and you cant turn back, you just have to sit there and take the scares as they come.
  3. Corn Maze Walk Through- Yeah, corn mazes are scary just in general, but walk through one at night while people are trying to purposely scare you and chase you. It’s like something out of a horror movie I swear.
  4. Have A Scaring Contest- For the whole month of October have a scaring contest and at any chance that you can scare your significant other–do it. Even just knowing that they’re trying to scare you will put you on edge.
  5. Go Through a Famous Local Scary Walk Though- My friends and I went to Eastern State Penitentiary last year and it was so scary! If you have a famous walk through by you, definitely do it.
  6. Stay Home and Watch Scary Movies- Sometimes the movies you are most scared of are old they’re on video streaming services now! I know the movie I’m most afraid of came out in 2008 The Strangers!
  7. Take A Haunted City Tour- We recently took a ghost tour in Cape May, New Jersey where they drove us around the town and showed us the most haunted spots.
  8. Host Your Own Spooky Walk Through- We have a family member who has a huge spooky walk through in her backyard that her neighbors and community goes to each year. So, gather some decorations and friends and scare people in the comfort of your own house!
  9. Go To An Amusement Park With Scary Events- I know that Six Flags has Fright Fest where zombies, clowns, mummies and other spooky creatures roam around the park and scare you as you also go on rides! Also, Universal has a Stranger Things scary theme after dark!
  10. Have A Full Night Of Fright- Go to your local psychics, tarot card readers, and even a medium and have your future told, and speak with the dead! You can even end the night with playing Ouija Board (only if you seriously want to psyche yourself out and also don’t mind doing it either.

I hope you enjoyed these date ideas, make sure to comment below your favorite spooky date and remember to subscribe for email notifications for when I post new content.

Best Fall Girls Night In (9/28/2019)

Hey y’all, like I say with every girls night post– it isn’t only exclusive to that gender so feel free to just do this idea with any and all friends. The only reason I call it girls night is because I throw a girls night at my house or out places once a week if we can get together with my girlfriends and these are the things we do when we hangout! So, obviously you can do a spa night or pizza and wine night with any and all of your friends regardless of gender.

The other night my friends and I had a girls night and we thought it would be a great idea to have a fall themed night in. We didn’t really feel like going anywhere and we figured a night in would suffice for all of us. But what to do on a night in, in the fall? Together we found out a perfect idea! Each of us cam with a couple of food entrees and we pigged out on some food and snacks together while also watching the Halloweentown movies!

It was so fun and we all made amazing foods, I made Halloween themed chocolate covered Oreos (with Halloween Oreos with the orange filling), I also brought Cool Ranch Doritos and the flaming Takis. My one friend brought the Halloween character sugar cookies, and some Halloween candies and my other friend had chips and salsa as well as some cupcakes! We ate and watched Halloweentown and we loved every second of it! Such a throw back and an amazing time with some close friends!

I hope you enjoyed this friends night idea and make sure to let me know in the comments if you tried it out and how it went! Remember to subscribe for email notifications for when I post new content.
