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…)
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…)
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…)
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. (more…)
The past few weeks Elaina Watley, beautiful fiancee of football star Victor Cruz, has been in the media for sending a group text to several other women believed to have sexual relationships with the football star. Watley’s message is here:
There have been mixed reviews from both men and women dying to chime in their two cents. Some have ripped Watley to shreds claiming that she was wrong for contacting these women and she should have taken this up with her fiance. Others have sent words of encouragement to Watley. Reading these comments really got me thinking. How could these everyday Joes and Janes possibly weigh in on this situation? Let’s take a closer look… (more…)
