Does the Size of Your Ring Matter to You?

Does the Size of Your Ring Matter to You?

I came across an article online the other day that really made me think. The topic at hand was engagement rings and whether or not the size of the ring should matter. Being a very glamourous, girly girl, I, of course, love all things shiny, but when it comes to love, I can't help but wonder what the two things have in common?

What to Wear to Meet His Family

So, the holidays are upon us, which means you may be preparing to meet your boyfriend’s family for the very first time.

No, I Do Not Want to Get Coffee Sometime

No, I Do Not Want to Get Coffee Sometime

Ahh, the good old fashioned “we should grab coffee” invitation. I swear, I get asked out on coffee dates several times a week and honestly, I’m not sure why? I would rather poke my own eyes out than sit in a cramped Starbucks, in the middle of the day, with some guy I barely know and probably don’t even want to know. Guys, as women, we know what this approach means by now. It means…

No wonder guys think I'm too much, texting means absolutely nothing to me. I actually think…

To the Guys That Text Self Pictures…

I think one of my favorite part's of being a girl is the funny stories us girls exchange about the guys we're dating. I swear... some of you guys kill me with the things you do. My girlfriend has been seeing this guy casually for the past month and I about died when she sent me a screen shot of the picture he just sent her this morning. The picture was of his face only,…
