If Christmas And Hanukkah Were People We All Knew

I found this video fitting for this time of year. It demonstrates how under appreciated Hanukkah truly is, in such a hilarious way! Enjoy and Happy Holidays!

 

Even though this clip is found on YouTube, I originally discovered this of Huff Post. Here’s the link:

Love is in the Air!

If you want a change from the stereotypical flowers, chocolate, and expensive dinner, here’s my top 10 ideas that will be enjoyable and different from your everyday cliché date. 

1. Cooking together

Don’t want to go out? Then stay at home! Especially out on the East Coast, the snowstorm isn’t giving us many options. When you can’t go out for dinner, stay at home and cook together! By doing this, you spend less money and get to know each other better. To end the dinner, bake a delicious Valentine’s day themed dessert!

2. Picnic

If cooking is not your forte, create a simple picnic! This is a very cheap idea that can go a long way! If it is too cold outside or live where there is snow, this is still possible. Just create an indoor picnic (maybe near the fireplace!) and enjoy each other’s company. 

3. Recreate your first date

If you two have been together for a while, this idea shows a lot of thought. By recreating your first date, you remember amazing first memories and strengthen your bond for new ones to come!

4. Brunch

If you are looking to go out somewhere, but don’t have a ton of money to spend, brunch is a great way of showing your love, but not breaking the bank! Enjoy a nice omelette (or whatever suites you) and start off your day with an amazing brunch.

5. Mini golfing

If you live in an area with warm weather, a little friendly competition while mini golfing is the perfect date idea! Mini golfing allows for a casual date for ones who haven’t been together for long, but also is perfect for couples who have been dating for a while.

6. Ice skating

For couples who live around cold weather, ice skating is the way to go. Holding hands while enjoying this winter activity can strengthen your bond!

7. Spell it out

“Spell it out” is a little sort of game that is an effective way to show your affection for someone. Just put a clue somewhere for your girl/boyfriend that leads to a wonderful surprise!

8. Rent a movie

Still stuck inside? Then rent a movie and cuddle at someone’s house enjoying the blizzard. Try out a new movie that both of you haven’t seen, or surprise your girl/boyfriend with their favorite movie. 

9. Museum 

Strolling around an art museum can be as much fun as anything else sometimes. By doing this, you can even learn a few new things about each other. 🙂

10. Take a long walk together

Lastly, pick your favorite hangout area or a new park to take a romantic long walk. This way you two can just talk about anything and simply enjoy each other’s company. 

Remember to dig deep into what the one that you love likes and try to please him/ her.  Be spontaneous! Valentine’s Day isn’t ALL about the flowers and chocolates, but is also about showing how much you love one another.

Happy Valentine’s Day everyone!

My New Years Eve look!

Happy New Year!

Appreciate 2014 and celebrate 2015! 

Going to a NYE party and I have to look my best! Obviously sparkles is a must for New Year’s Eve, so I chose a navy dress to show a wintry side that has silver sparkles on it! 

Due to the silver sparkles, I went with all silver jewelry and a silver (and sparkly 🙂 ) headband. As for shoes, I wore my silver flats that are topped off with a silver (of course) buckle. 

What I love most about this dress are the little details. The shoulder and back is lacy, which balances out the sparkles. 

Since it’s cold outside, I have to prepare for the worst weather, so I added an off-white scarf and a navy jacket! The scarf compliments the dress perfectly and the jacket matches the dress while giving me a warm and cozy look.

Hope everyone has a NYE filled with friends and family!

The articles above inspired my resolution. 

BE. HAPPY.

 I don’t want to decide now what I want to accomplish for the year because from experience, life changes in a split second. I want to reduce my anxiety and to accomplish this, I am going to take this year step by step. Every month, I am going to write down in a notebook a list of what I want to accomplish for that month and do everything needed to accomplish those goals. This way, I will become happier everyday because I will constantly feel successful by accomplishing little goals, but more of them. The key is that after the month ends, I will continue the goal throughout the whole year. By doing this, I will accomplish my New Years resolution and finally

BE. HAPPY.
