The Ultimate #couplegoals of 2017

Can we all develop a Michelle and Barack Obama relationship?

Obsessed with Michelle and Barack? Aren't we all! Their love seems to be real and timeless, hence the reason why they are at the top of everyone's #couplegoals. From the way Barack looks at Michelle to the words he uses to compliment her, all make our hearts melt. Why do they melt our hearts you may ask yourself. The answer is as simple as wanting a beautiful relationship like theirs. One we can be proud of, one that seems more fun than work and full of positive experiences.

However it may seem, relationships take time especially to get to a point such as theirs. I'm sure they have had their ups and downs in the beginning and the ups were higher and the downs were lower. They somehow still found a way to work through it all, taking each quarrel not as a negative experience, but as a lesson. They took the time to slowly understand each other's wants, needs, and personality. Each day learning something new and different. Teaching each other how to comprise on the way situations are handled ideally from each other's perspectives. With each day getting easier and easier!

Now I don't t think their relationship is perfect all the time and neither should you. Don't hold you or your loved one to that type of standard. Even when some things get easier, others may get harder. Relationships are something that you will consistently be working on depending on what life throws at the two of you.

With that said, we can make our own kind of perfect by always speaking highly of our loved ones. Regardless of the fight they started last week or the look you gave them yesterday. Try to start each day with openness, love, and kindness. Offer to help them with a chore or get something done on their to do list that they haven't got to yet. You may be surprised with the effects your effort will make.

Why Girls Love The Dad Bod

If your man can rock the dad bod, he's a keeper.


In case you haven't noticed lately, girls are all about that dad bod.

Girls have been dealing with body image issues since the beginning of time until recent (for those of you who consider yourselves to be "Thick thin") I hadn't heard about this body type until my roommate mentioned it. She used to be crazy over guys she claimed had the dad bod.

After observing the guys she found attractive, I came to understand this body type well and was able to identify it. The dad bod is a nice balance between a beer gut and working out. The dad bod says, "I go to the gym occasionally, but I also drink heavily on the weekends and enjoy eating eight slices of pizza at a time." It's not an overweight guy, but it isn't one with washboard abs, either.

The dad bod is a new trend and fraternity boys everywhere seem to be rejoicing. Turns out skipping the gym for a few brews last Thursday after class turned out to be in their favor. While we all love a sculpted guy, there is just something about the dad bod that makes boys seem more human, natural, and attractive. Here are a few reasons that girls are crazy about the dad bod.

It doesn't intimidate us.
Few things are worse than taking a picture in a bathing suit, one being taking a picture in a bathing suit with a guy who is crazy fit. We don't want a guy that makes us feel insecure about our body. We are insecure enough as it is. We don't need a perfectly sculpted guy standing next to us to make us feel worse.

We like being the pretty one.
We love people saying "they look cute together." But we still like being the center of attention. We want to look skinny and the bigger the guy, the smaller we feel and the better we look next to you in a picture.

Better cuddling.
No one wants to cuddle with a rock. Or Edward Cullen. The end.

Good eats.
The dad bod says he doesn't meal prep every Sunday night so if you want to go to Taco Tuesday or $4 pitcher Wednesday, he'd be totally down. He's not scared of a cheat meal because he eats just about anything and everything.

You know what you're getting.
Girls tend to picture their future together with their guys early on. Therefore, if he already has the dad bod going on, we can get used to it before we date him, marry him, have three kids. We know what we are getting into when he's got the same exact body type at the age of 22 that he's going to have at 45.

So there you go. A simple break down of why girls everywhere are going nuts over this body type on males. We like it. We love it. We want some more of it. So here's to you dad bods, keep it up. Men, confidently strut that gut on the beach because while you stare at us in our bikinis we will be staring just as hard.

6 Reasons To Love A Capricorn

Capricorns are the best, what is there not to love?!


I am not one of those girls who eats, breathes, and sleeps all things zodiac. However, I do enjoy reading up on my own sign every once in a while. My birthday is December 27, which makes me a Capricorn, AKA the sea-goat. I honestly love being a Capricorn and feel I am one through and through. I love my fellow Capricorns and find there is a special bond between us, after all, we share a lot of similar qualities! There a ton of reasons to love Capricorns because we are the best, but I will save you some time by highlighting the top six.

1. We are super cautious

We proceed with caution in every situation. Dark parking lots at night? Huge no thank you. Reckless behavior? I'll pass. We may play it safe most of the time, but if you are looking for someone who will always have your back and keep your best interest at heart, you came to the right place.

2. We are intellectuals and DO NOT put up with ignorance

There is nothing we hate more than ignorant people. If you are not an intelligent human, do not cross our path. So if you are down for an intellectual partner who can actually hold a thought-provoking conversation for an extended period of time, Capricorn is the way to go.

3. We are very calm and like to keep the peace

There is nothing worse than high maintenance people. We are all about the chill vibes and if that is disrupted, we are not happy campers. We are pretty easy to please which is huge a plus. Keep the water still and we will love you.

4. We are very honest, too much at times

People hate liars. People hate dishonest people, so with a Capricorn, there is nothing to worry about. We pride ourselves on honesty, and to be quite frank, we can really do some damage when we speak our truth. Other than that, it is something to love about us for sure!

5. We are very independent and love to do our own thing

This can be both good and bad, but if you are someone who likes space and little miss independent, Capricorn is your girl. We can be really stubborn if our independence is being compromised, but if you can respect our free-will, we will love and respect you right back.

6. We are very down to earth and grounded

Capricorn is an earth sign, so it only makes sense we are the most down to earth and grounded people! This is my favorite quality about us and it is quite charming. We are super easy to be around and our presence is a blessing.
