Does she have an all-time favorite book or series? Get her a matching candle to serve as a constant reminder of it. If she has multiple favorites, then get her a book-scented candle so she can always be reminded of the joy to be had when cracking open a new book.

Bookish mugs.

Get her favorite book quote on a large cozy mug. She will love sipping coffee as it rains, with a good book in her hand.

Take her to the bookstore.

Go on a date to the bookstore! Take her to a cute second-hand shop and each choose a book for the other. Then, after your done, sit down with coffee and food, and read!

Prior to seeing her, get one of her favorite books and read it. As you do so, highlight and circle and underline favorite parts, quotes, and things that remind you of her in it. When you give it to her, she will not only be touched by the fact that you read one of her favorite books, but that she will get to re-read it and see it through your eyes.

Take her on a date from a book.

Find a cute date idea from one of her favorite books! Whether it's stargazing in a field, or doing an extravagant series of things, she will love the fact that you took the time to research and reenact scenes from her books.

Go bookshop hopping.

Figure out where all the bookstores in your town are and visit each one. Make a game out of it and try to find the prettiest cover, ugliest cover, funniest title, etc. End the night with dessert and coffee.

Take her to Goodwill or a second-hand bookshop and each pick out a book. Then, go to a fun coffee shop, back home to a cute dinner, or a picnic. With two pencils and sharpies, use the words on the pages to make a funny story or beautiful poetry. Blackout all the words you didn't circle with the pencil, leaving a creative poem. Have fun with it and write each other love letters, inside jokes, etc.

Book chair.

Reading isn't the most comfortable thing to do. Get your girl a nice little chair where she can keep her coffee beside her, her favorite books in the holders, and read comfortably.

Have a fun game night at home and battle it out over this fun twist to a classic game! Keep it interesting and have books you can "buy" with the remaining money at the end.

I was never really big on cocktails. Tequila soda is always a go-to drink for me because of its simplicity and, to be honest, lack of extra calories from mixers chock-full of sugar, chemicals, and other unknown ingredients. I like tequila, and like to be able to really savor it.

This all changed when, a couple of years ago, a friend of mine made me a margarita from scratch — no funky mixers involved — and it tasted incredible. It was light, refreshing, and complemented the tequila without overpowering it.

I was blessed with thick, full hair up until my late teens. At the time, I cursed my hairiness — this was before full eyebrows became trendy or cool, and were instead a point of bullying many of my fellow full-browed teens can relate to.

Later in my 20s, hormonal stability was something I was thankful for, though a major side effect ended up being hair loss — on my head, lashes, and brows. I now find my filling in my brows on an almost daily basis. As much as I enjoy toying with and testing out different brow-filling products, it'll never be quite the same as being able to have "I woke up like this" full, Gigi Hadid-esque brows.

May Is Mental Health Awareness Month, A Reminder We Need Even More In Quarantine

You're going through something brand new — that's worth talking about.

May is Mental Health Awareness Month. This isn't new to 2020, but oh man, if we ever needed a reminder about the importance of mental health, now is the time. With different states all over the place in regard to stay-at-home orders, phased reopenings, and a "new normal," we're experiencing conflict, fear, changes, and unknowns that can easily trigger mental struggles we already have or spark feelings we've never had before. Yes, May is always Mental Health Awareness Month, but in quarantine, that need for positive mental health is taken to a whole new level.

These 11 Face Masks On Etsy Support Small Businesses While Fighting The Spread Of Coronavirus

We're staying safe as states start lifting lockdown guidelines.

I, like most people who have had the luxury of being able to stay at home during this time, haven't spent much time outdoors at all. But when I do brave the great outdoors for a walk or to get to the grocery store, you won't find me without a mask.

My family and I were lucky enough to have family friends who were sewing some and had extras to give to us, but most of my friends and loved ones outside my immediate family have had to order some (or make a makeshift one out of scarves or bandanas).

13 Reasons We're Using Quarantine As The Ultimate Excuse For Online Shopping This Month

The one thing we haven't distanced from is our bank account.

Throughout quarantine, I've been FaceTiming most of my friends in a full turtleneck or the go-to cozy sweater I keep wrapped around the chair in my room. Either way, I always have tea in my hands to keep myself warm — till this past week.

For most of the country who hasn't had the luck of quarantining in 90-degree weather on their family's lake house or with a backyard pool, things began to change this month. Our favorite shows came out with summer seasons, the sun came out, and we started spending more time outside.
