14 Date Night Ideas For Fall and Winter

14 Date Ideas For When The Weather Falls Below 65

It's that time that everyone starts getting coupled up, so here are some things to keep in mind when hanging out with that "special someone" in the fall and winter season.



1. Go to a pumpkin patch 

Fall is pretty notorious for being everyone's favorite season. Cooler weather, cute clothes, and cuddle weather! Going to a pumpkin patch is the best kick off date for fall. Pick out the perfect pumpkin for your "pumpkin." Okay, yeah that was pretty cheesy...

2. Drive-in movie 

Not many of these are still around, but if you come across one - DON'T pass up that opportunity. These are so fun, who doesn't love watching a good movie, in the tailgate of a truck?!

3. Now that you have a pumpkin, carve the pumpkins

After going to a pumpkin patch, you can always make another date (second date material) to carve those pumpkins you picked. This would be a great group date activity too.

4. Scary movie marathon

Everyone loves a good scary movie, and you know that's an opportunity to really have a good cuddle session and pull that move of yawning and getting that arm around your girl, guys. This also really shows how "tough" of a man you have, ladies.

5. Haunted house/corn maze 

This is just fun, plain and simple. Get a group together, double dates, whatever it may be and go through a haunted house. Wear a go-pro to go back and watch everyone's reactions.

6. Go to a bonfire 

Bonfires are very popular - your hair might smell for days after many washes, but it's so worth it. So much fun just hanging out and getting to know one another a little better! Group setting, or not. You're always warm and you can make smores - that's the best part!

7. Now for the winter time activities: Go iceskating!!

Me personally, I am probably one of the clumsiest people out there, but ice skating is always fun. Maybe get lucky, and hold hands. Whoa - big step.

8. Watch Elf 

Not to be biased, but this is the best Christmas movie ever - EVER. I love Elf, I watch many times a year so definitely making the suggestion to watch this movie during the Christmas season, if not once a month.

9. Make and decorate Christmas cookies 

This is something to do on one of those nights you're just hanging out or with the fam, make some Christmas cookies then let everyone decorate their own however they like! Santa is a BIG fan of this, so I've heard.

10. Play in the snow

Snow is not a common thing, down here in the South. So when we have the chance - we build that snowman like Ana wanted Elsa to and we have snowball fights. So why not do it with your boyfriend/girlfriend?!

11. Go look at Christmas lights 

I don't know about you, but Christmas lights and decorations always put me in a good mood. So after you go to dinner one night, drive around and look at Christmas lights listening to Christmas music!!!

12. Volunteer at the Salvation Army 

This is something that I love doing every year. The Salvation Army in my hometown takes volunteers to give out gifts the day before Christmas Eve to families in need. Doing this with a "special someone" has got to be a great experience and so dang heartwarming.

13. See the Rockettes 

This is someting that would probably cost a little more money than the rest, but this is a show that's definitely worth it. And if you see it in Nashville, TN, you need to go ahead and see the lights at the Opry Land Hotel while you're at it. Date weekend, maybe? I think so!

14. Christmas movie marathon

Just like with scary movies, everyone likes a good Christmas movie marathon. Elf (again), Grinch, Home Alone, Polar Express, these aren't hard to find. So get a cup of hot chocolate, those cookies you made and decorated, and cuddle up to watch all these movies and wait for Santa to come!

For a long time, Goya has been a staple in some Latino households. People carry around jars of Adobo when they eat at friend's houses and packets of Sazón Goya can be found in almost everyone's pantry. Many BuzzFeed lists, videos, and memes aimed at Latinos reference Goya somewhere.

But in a year that just keeps hitting us with bad news, Goya Foods CEO Robert Unanue said that Trump was an "incredible builder" and that the US was "blessed" to have him as president at a White House event on Thursday.

Raven Baxter Was Our Favorite Teen Fashion Icon And We're Still Recreating Her Best Looks, Here

We take a look at Disney's most fashion-forward show to recreate some iconic looks.

Disney Plus

I grew up in the early 2000s. And, like any child at the time, I was hooked on Disney Channel shows. My favorite was and is "That's So Raven."

Raven is a teenage psychic navigating life in hopes of not revealing her powers. Only her family and close friends know she has them. Her powers oftentimes get her in trouble, which is where the comedy comes in. But, they also teach her and her friends sentimental life lessons.

Sobriety is so underrated, even when it comes to healthcare. The instant gratification of a substance or drink isn't exactly as gratifying as some people may think. For those of you who've never been hungover, consider yourself lucky — a hangover is biologically horrifying. A hangover is not instant gratification, so who are we kidding when people say "it just feels good." Being healthy actually feels good and won't hurt you or your bank account in the morning. The best way to be healthy is to choose sobriety.

Ah, yes. The juice cleanse. Yet another popular diet trend that promises to magically solve all of your health, nutrition, and weight issues.

When you take a close look, juice cleanses aren't as magical as they are made out to be, and in fact, they might do more harm than good.

Unauthorized Plastic Surgery Is Totally Unethical, And Happening WAY More Often Than We Know ‬

Plastic surgery for cosmetic enhancements has you looking more botched than beautiful and it’s painful to see.

Coming from someone who could afford numerous cosmetic enhancing procedures I would never in a million years cut up my face or my body. I'm pretty emphatic and when I watch these brainwashed victims with bandages and chronic inflammation (swollen lips) I literally feel their pain.

I've never been big on casual wear or athleisure. Most people who know me have never seen me in sweats. But, I do have those two or three pairs of sweats I can't resist climbing into the second I get home, the newest addition of which is the extra cozy Odyssey crewneck sweatshirt I got in an XL size to feel as close to being wrapped in a blanket at all times as possible.

In the past several months, I've started to expand my horizons, considering the ways in which I can bring my small wardrobe of comfortable bedroom clothing into the public. I've experimented with topping leggings and a sports bra with a denim jacket to the park, and an oversized sweatshirt worn as a dress, cinched at the waist with a belt when I'm out wearing leggings.

How To Dress Like Your Favorite 'Insecure' Characters — Without Spending $2,000

We take a look at the fashion of Insecure season 4, and how you can create these looks yourself.


Insecure is one of my favorite shows ever. It really encapsulates what it's like being a Black 20-something, trying to navigate the many ups and downs of life. Issa, Molly, Kelli, and Tiffany are living their best lives in California while dealing with the twists and turns that come with that.

From life to relationships to careers, this show truly captures everything that runs through my mind on a daily basis. The show has a sense of realness and a strong frankness that makes you gravitate toward the characters and root for their success.

Making A Food Instagram Was The Greatest Silver Lining To Come Out Of My COVID-19 Experience

With the crazy and scary times that 2020 has brought, find comfort in the one thing everyone loves: food.

The waiter briskly moves towards us and stops just a foot away table, balancing the black serving tray stacked high with the ceramic plates that make-up our dinner. From memorization, he beings gently, but purposely, sliding everyone's orders in front of them and within seconds I'm am starring my meal.
