3 Reasons You Need a Best Friend at Work and How to Find One

I’m a firm believer that friendships develop in the most unlikely of places. Most people don’t go to work to make friends, but if they are fortunate enough to connect with someone the relationship may not get too deep since after all you know one another professionally. However, I’ve been blessed not just to find someone I kind of like at my job, but someone that I actually want to spend time with outside of work and in the short time that we’ve been closer probably knows me as well as my college friends. Now while some of you may think I’m crazy for letting a co-worker into my inner circle, I’m here to tell you that it has made me realize we all need to have a best friend at work! (more…)

3 Halloween Ideas for Adults Without Kids + Thursday 3 Link Up

When most people think of Halloween, they think of children dressed in super cute costumes. I remember when I was little what you were going to be and who you were dressing up with was a REALLY big deal. Even through college, my friends and I made dressing up a top priority. Now that college is over and I’m trying real hard to be a real life adult, I’m struggling to figure out how adults do Halloween. I mean, I clearly won’t be knocking on doors asking for candy and I won’t be headed to any frat parties, so how am I supposed to celebrate Halloween?! (more…)

Introducing “Dear Roxy C” – Your Virtual Best Friend

During my undergrad days at the University of Miami, one of my favorite things to do was read the “Dear V” column of the school’s news paper. This special column featured anonymous letters to V, an unknown member of the writing staff I assume. Students were able to write to V about any problems they were facing be it at home, at school, or at work and V would provide unbiased friendly advice. I loved the thrill of seeing what was going on in my peers lives, but what really resonated with me was the manner in which V offered advice.  V was always compassionate and spoke to her writer’s like she knew them personally and they were her best friend. I want to be that virtual best friend for all of my Royals in reality. (more…)

How to Throw the Perfect Summer Bash

Summer time is the ideal time for gathering friends and family. The days last longer and the warm weather lets you party inside AND outside. Especially last summer, we spent a lot of time hanging out at friends’ houses and even hosted a few gatherings of our own. I eventually learned what I liked (and what I didn’t) and I think I’ve honed in on how to throw the perfect summer bash. Now what kind of blogger would I be if I didn’t share my tips on how to host a party guest will rave about with my royal family? (more…)

3 Signs She’s Just Not That Into You

Last week I was cruising some of my favorite blogs and came across a post about 10 Signs He’s Just Not Into You. I really wish I could remember where I saw it, but in looking at all the comments it seemed that a lot of women could sympathize with the author and reported experiencing numerous of these signs. What I found kind of funny is that as I read the signs, I found myself mentally testifying that I had done them to many guys. We live in a society where it’s assumed that women are always seeking relationships and that when things go south it’s because the man did something wrong or he somehow held all the cards that determined how the relationship was going to go. The way I see it women are just as capable of controlling how the game goes and frankly we’re sometimes just not that into a guy. So ladies, sit back and prepare to laugh and guys take close notes as I reveal three clear signs that she’s just not that into you. (more…)
