If you’ve been in a long-term relationship it’s common for couples to retreat into a pattern of distance and disconnection. Wanna know what goes first? Intimacy. The reason is simple, as time goes on, life responsibilities take priority. You are more concerned about your career, your kids and yourself to worry about someone who pledged their life to be by yourself. And while it’s true that your partner may not be going anywhere, you can be a much better wife, husband, parent or general human being when you are in a happy home where you feel connected and supported. For that, you need intimacy.
I know what you are thinking and no… it’s more than that. True intimacy is the sense of fully knowing another person loving them as they truly are. It’s a deep honesty that requires you to be your most vulnerable self and connect with your partner both in and out of bed. Intimacy is a way to deepen your bond with your partner, and emotional intimacy can be the key to that. Here are 7 ways to boost intimacy in your relationship…View Post
One of the most overwhelming things is to figure out where to shop online. I vividly remember the first time that I placed an order years ago, and I had so many concerns: How long will it take to arrive? Will the clothes even fit me? How expensive will it be to return these items? Will it even be worth it? I first employed the principle that I would only shop from places that allowed me to return in store. Figured if I was going to go to the store to buy something, I might as well get the item delivered to my home, try it on in the comfort of my bedroom, and then make that trip anyways in case it didn’t work out.
Years later, I almost exclusively shop online and find it stressful to shop in stores! I don’t even know how to rummage through racks and want to know very clearly if my preferred item is in stock and whether or not it is available in my size. However, I understand that finding new places to shop can be tricky so I wanted to share some of my favorite spots with you guys and detail a few pieces I’ve gotten from them, what shipping and returns are like, etc. Here we go…View Post
My sister and brother in law were actually the masterminds behind this impromptu trip to Mexico City. They planned a much-needed family vacation for our side of the family. Both my sister and I travel more often with our in-laws so it was nice to do this one trip with our mom! They are both travel gurus and go to the most incredible places and always find the best insider tips. Sahir and I knew that this trip would be one that we would have to do little to no planning and everything would be perfect because those two are amazing when it comes to this kinda thing…View Post
