GUEST POST: So You’re Finally Ready to Date?

With Valentine’s Day just days away and The Boy and I celebrating our four year anniversary yesterday, I have been all caught up in being in love with him. While in my blissful stupor, and probably doodling “R <3 J” all over the place, I began to realize not everyone is floating around on cloud nine because of their relationship. That realization then made me decide that another Valentine’s Day post surrounding this idea that you have a man/woman was totally ignoring my Royals who are still looking/waiting for love. I know that I’m too far out the game to really be making recommendations to single people (I legit still don’t really know what Tinder is) so I thought I’d leave it to my expert single friend.  She’s an entrepreneur, amazingly beautiful, is literally the most generous person I know, and any man would be lucky to call her his, but for reasons I can’t understand she’s still single. Lucky for me, she graciously agreed to share her guidelines for anyone who is ready to step into the crazy world that is dating.  (more…)

His & Hers Valentine’s Day Gift Guide

Valentine’s Day is just a little over two weeks away and if you’re planning to shop for a special someone, now is the time to start (if you haven’t already). If your bank account is still recovering from the holidays and/or annual bills that come up in January, this Valentine’s Day gift guide filled with gifts under $100 is perfect for you!

Valentine’s Day is typically marketed to men for women and men are frequently neglected. Most guys aren’t looking to receive flowers, chocolates, or some romantic gesture for Valentine’s Day. In my opinion, this makes shopping for men for this holiday really hard, but don’t worry Royals, y’all know I got you and I’m going to be sure your bank account isn’t empty! (more…)

10 Inexpensive Winter Date Ideas

It seems as though majority of America is experiencing a pretty warm winter. Here in St. Louis, Missouri we are still seeing temps as high as 65 during the day but as low as mid 20’s at night. Even though we haven’t had any snow, we have had an abundance of rain and everything is dead and dreary. With the weather being so rainy, I feel even more restricted when trying to think of date ideas than when it’s simply cold and/or snowing. I can bundle up and brave the cold, but y’all know rain/humidity and being a naturalista just don’t mix. (more…)

The Royal Travel Guide to Cancun

Last week, we started The Boy’s birthday celebrations with a surprise dinner at Kobe’s Steakhouse with our family and friends in St. Louis. Ever since our first trip out of the country together to Punta Cana, we’ve both been excited to explore new countries and cultures together. A huge milestone, like turning 30, seemed like the perfect opportunity to add another stamp to our passports…plus who wouldn’t love to be on the beach in December? (more…)

Liebster Award

First things first, a HUGE thank you to Rachel over at Her Happy Home for my nomination for the Liebster Award! Rachel is a lifestyle blogger on a journey to create a happy atmosphere for her family (her daughter is ADORABLE). She shares health & wellness tips, book recommendations, and tasty recipes on her blog! (You guys really should check her out)

So for those of you outside of the blogging community, the Liebster Award is an award by bloggers, for bloggers. It is passed from one person to the next to encourage networking and support within the blogging community. The cool thing about the award is that it’s a nomination from a new blogger for another newbie, and by “new” I mean fewer than 200 subscribers. I was beyond thrilled and honored when I found out that Rachel had nominated me.  When I started blogging, I had no clue I’d enjoy it as much as I do and it feels amazing to know that people other than The Boy and my mom are reading Royalty in Reality.
