Maintaining The Best Relationship

Whilst its the best feeling having a relationship it can become so easily for it all to go wrong. So here are my best tips on maintaining a relationship. Ive been with my current partner for 5years, so i have a fair idea of how to keep things healthy.

Things to remember;

  • ‘Distance makes the heart grow founder’  This is one i swear by, i dont mean that you have to move ten miles away but its all about having your own time to make you miss the other person and to keep there cute habits from becoming annoying. Weather its working separate jobs or going out in different friend groups every so often. You can even be in the same house and have your own time for example you can take yourself off to pamper yourself and do your own thing whilst your partner is in a separate part of the house. As much as you may want its not healthy spending every second of your day together.
  • Talk – Communication is key in any friendship or relationship. Be real talk about your thoughts your woes, this can also make your bond even stronger.
  • Keep a designated night to go all out – Have a date night once a week where you can glam up and go out just like when you used to date. This works best for couples that live together!
  • Comprimise – For any relationship to work there needs to be a level of give and take. For instance weather it comes down to what to have for dinner or what to watch on tv. Sometimes you have to meet in the middle.
  • Don’t try to change your partner – Theres no person that is perfect everyone has there flaws. Your partner you should love for there flaws n’ all!
  • Complements – Keep the relationship positive, say them soppy things give them complements.
  • Give what you expect to get – You can’t be not giving your partner a second of your time and expect a massive gift in return. Your equal and both deserve what makes each other happy.

Your Favourite Love Story

As cheesy as it sounds i honestly find my grandparents little love story the best, it shows true love and there just so cute.

For the purpose of this post i did ask them some little questions to fill in there love story. 

So they first started seeing each other when my Grandma was 19 and my Grandad was 23.
There first date involved going to there local pub to have a drink with there friends.
A few years passed then my grandad proposed standing on a fence gate in the woods,
They married on 7th of July 1962. [55Years this year]. I always remember being told how Grandad left the sticker on his new shoes on the day of the wedding.
To this day they’re still together soldering through every day, there main priority in life is each other and helping one another grow old together.

There love story contains nothing high and glamorous but the main feature in there love story that is the most inspirational is the fact that they believe in the ‘Marry Once’ rule and the vows you make at your wedding day are a life commitment. Dont get me wrong i can understand why some marriages can break down but i dont think people understand the true meaning of marriage any more and my grandparents just show case how it should be. They’ve stuck together through everything, to be the best husband and wife they can and even to this day through any struggles of old age they are never far apart from one another. They raised two children, took two grandchildren on like there own and love all there grandchildren and great grandchildren like there own and would go without just to help some one else. Honestly i could never imagine them apart they are like a fish without water, a world with no sun, a plane without wings.
I honestly adore my grandparents and i look at them in awe, and what they have together is what i dream i could only ever have.

here are my beautiful grandparents.

Whats your favourite love story?

Date Night Ideas

Date Night;an arranged occasion on which an established couple go for a night out together.
Take one night a week for just you and your loved one and watch your relationship blossom. 

Date nights dont have to be the most expensive lavish night filled with a 4 course meal including champagne. A date night it what you and your loved one enjoy, take it as a open card to do whatever you want for the night. It doesn’t have to be a cinematic experience just something personal between the pair of you. You’ll find yourself memorising the dates more if they’re what you love then if your more concentrating on ‘oh Sally from work does this and everyone in the office loved it’

Dinner & Cinema
The classic idea when anyone says ‘date night‘ this idea is bound to be one of the first that pop into your head.
Start by going for a meal somewhere of your choice from a 5 star restaurant, your favourite cafe or even a cheeky mc Donald’s. Some of my date nights have ended up in Subway simply because its mine and my partners favourite convent food and it works for us!
Followed by a movie, now its a rare chance that you’re actually both going to agree on a movie so you will either be dragged into a chick flick or a manly action film which can be a downside to this date idea and also for the duration of the film you can’t talk so if you want your night to be filled with long deep chats this might not be the best idea..

Head Out On A Road Trip
Pick a destination and have a drive, take in the scenes and just explore. This is brilliant as you’re in each others company the whole time where you can play some cheesy music, have some conversations where you discus everything you’ve ever wanted. It can be done in rain or sunshine because your in the warmth and comfort of your own car with heaters and window wipers. Grab a souvenir of a key chain or pin badge to remember your night. You can pull over to grab some restaurant food, or hit up the drive thru whatever takes your fancy.
To make it extra cheesy you could always take a drive down memory lane and re-vist some places you met, or show each other where you grew up.

Vist A Local Landmark
Weather its a massive park to go on a walk, a museum or a cool attraction go act like tourists in your hometown. Do all the things any new comer to the landmark would do, take a bunch of pictures and admire the view and take some time to be grateful for what you have.

Go to an adventure park
Ride a ferris wheel, roller coaster or play a round a mini golf. Play the arcades and win some fluffy bears.

Eat a desert only dinner
Indulge on dessert for dinner at a ice cream parlour.

Take a night off
Put on your comfy clothes, take your make up off put your hair up.Jump in a bubble bath together. Phones away grab a pizza and binge watch netflix or a tv series. Light some candles and chill.

Dine at home
One of you or the pair of you together re create your favourite dish that you enjoy at the resultant or something similar. Set the table nicely like if you were dinning out. Maybe even go the whole way and make a desert.

Re-Create your first date
Remember the fist time you had a date? or hung out? Re create that, rent the dvd you saw at the cinema. Go back to that restaurant or attraction. Even if the date ended in a fail its what started you love story so go re live that moment.

Book an event.
A Comedian, a gig a tour of somewhere. An event that you can attend together and enjoy.

Go for a long walk 
On the beach, in the forrest or somewhere picture perfect.

Book a night away
Perfect for more rare date nights, book a night away in the city or somewhere on the coast.

These are just some ideas that i can think of its what suits you is best.

Where was your worst date place you’ve ever been..

LED Cinema Light Box Thoughts

LED Cinema boxes are becoming more and more popular there a little light box with letters where you can write your own phrase upon it and then light it up, its really simple but so effective.

After wanting one for months, but just not willing to pay £25 for one and they all looked to big for my dressing table and it would mean i would have to re arrange it all again i finally found a box within my budget and the perfect size for my needs.

Screen Shot 2017-01-08 at 20.18.26.png

About the box;
A5 Sized – 210 x 148mm
85 Characters Included
Runs off AAA Batteries Or DC Plug.
£8 From the works. ** These are currently out of stock so i found an amazon alternative if you want to check it out; – http://amzn.to/2iSv2Ja

Setting Up;
I was chuffed with the light i couldn’t wait to get home and start putting it to use. When i took the light box out of the packaging i was confused to where the characters where but once i turned the box around i noticed theres a little compartment on the back to keep all the characters which i thought was such a good idea because one thing i always thought was I’m going to loose letters but this way its practically impossible. They also supply about 10 blank squares to write your own letters or use them as spaces or whatever your imagination allows you.. It was as simple unscrewing two screws popping the batteries in closing it up, choosing your phrase and turning the switch on.  So easy.

Thoughts; 
I am honestly chuffed with this, its the perfect size for what i need and its sturdy and its so easy to swap and change the characters. It lights up all really well and can be a really nice feature to any room.

Key Points; 
I love the letter storage on the back.
The changing of the letters are really easy, the only thing to bear in mind is to keep the box upright if not the letters will move around.
It lights up so well and can be used for so many different purposes.
The fact that its battery powered is amazing because it can be put anywhere and easily moved.

Here are some examples of the times i’ve used it; 

I love this it makes a beautiful additional feature to my dressing table. I really wish i got this sooner as it would have been really nice to have some festive ideas on here.

Rating;
Packaging 4/5
Setting Up 5/5
Overall 5/5

I love this, its something i would honestly recommend to anyone there so multipurpose its amazing.
