Looking for activities you and your dog can do together? Check out these 10 things that'll get you and your pooch out of the house.

10 Things To Do With Your Dog So You Don't Have To Leave Them At Home

Our dogs are too often left at home for hours and hours with nothing to do. As I am sure you all have heard hundreds of time, we are their entire lives. We are all they know, so we need to start trying to bring them along whenever and wherever we can.

1. Take them to Starbucks.

Yes, I realize this sounds ridiculous, but Starbucks has a drink for you and your little pal. All you have to do is ask for a puppuccino at the register if you're inside or at the drive-thru window if you're in the drive-thru. A puppuccino is a little espresso shot cup of whip-cream, and trust me, your dog will absolutely love it.

2. Take them to the beach.

There is nothing more adorable than seeing your dog see the beach for the first time. They can run around in the sand, jump in the water, and flash their perfect smile all day long. This is the perfect activity for you and your pooch on a nice day.

3. Take them to Target.

Who doesn't love Target? You get to browse through the seemingly never-ending aisles of one of America's favorite stores AND hang out with your best friend. What beats that?

4. Take them on your errands.

Busy day full of errands? Take your dog for some company! Many places not only welcome your furry friends but have treats waiting for them! Whether it be the bank, post-office, or grocery store, take your dog!

5. Take them to the park.

If it is a super nice day and you find yourself at a loss of what to do, grab your dog, a blanket, a good book, and head to a nearby park to spend a nice day outside! Wouldn't hurt to also take a ball to throw around for your little guy.

6. Take them for a drive.

Ever just get the urge to drive around and listen to music? Next time take your dog along for that ride! Roll the windows down to they can stick their head out of the window and I guarantee they will have an amazing time.

7. Take them for a walk.

If you're not really feeling a chill day in the park, try taking them for a walk. Both of you will benefit from the exercise, and it's just one more thing you can do with your best friend. Plus, you get to show off your dog to the neighborhood, and who doesn't love that?

8. Take them to the pet store.

Taking your dog to the pet store to pick out toys and treats will most certainly ensure that they have an extraordinary day. Most stores sell both items on the cheaper side so it won't break the bank either.

9. Take them to the dog park.

Chances are there are many dog parks near your home. If you find yourself bored and wanting to get out of the house, grab your dog and take them to the dog park! They will get to run around and play with other dogs which will make for a great day and improve their social skills.

10. Take them to breakfast, lunch, or dinner.

Most restaurants do not mind if you bring your dog to eat with you as long as you get a table outside. You will have a date that won't stand you up and your dog will get to spend time with you outside of the house!

No matter where you take your dog, they will just be happy to be spending time with you.

"I haven't been able to get out of the 'talking phase' with anyone."

The reality is, there's no part of life the pandemic hasn't affected. Whether it's your work life, your home life, your social life, or your love life, coronavirus (COVID-19) is wreaking havoc on just about everything — not to mention people's health.

So, some of Swoon's creators sought out to hear from various individuals on how exactly their love lives have been affected since quarantine began.

Rihanna is known for many things: her music, fashion, makeup, and now skincare. As a makeup artist myself, I can confidently say that she rocked the makeup world when she released her makeup line in 2017 and has been influencing the beauty world ever since.

Trying some of her makeup products myself, I know that she doesn't skimp on quality, and even though some of her products may be a little pricey, trust me, you get what you pay for.

Friends, no one needs to be reminded that the COVID-19 pandemic rages on in the U.S. Frankly, this is because we have all collectively decided not to do the one simple thing that was asked of us and wear a mask.

I could make this a very boring article, and berate you with facts and statistics and the importance of wearing a mask, but I have opted against that for both of our sakes. Instead, I will attempt to reach you in another way. You might not care about a disapproving look from me, but from Nick Miller? Maybe that will be enough to change your mind.

I don't want to point fingers or call anyone out, but it seems as though since the school year came to a close and summer officially started, more and more people began to care less and less about coronavirus (COVID-19).

I understand that eventually you have to get on with your life and cannot live in isolation forever, but people are still dying, cases are still increasing, and COVID is clearly not going anywhere for the time being.

Preview These Top Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2020 Picks — From Luxury Purses To Skincare

Currently 3 million people viewing the Stella McCartney purse I absolutely must have.

Online shopping has been a guilty pleasure of ours for years, but now more than ever it's been a shopping lover's outlet for all our home redecorating projects and resort wear we're purchasing for that trip we had to cancel.

One of my favorite places to (virtually) window shop has always been Nordstrom. I admittedly can't afford to go on sprees there often, but I still get a high off of adding things to my cart I know I'll never actually end up buying. But sometimes, that's not enough — that's when I, like the masses of luxury-, beauty-, fashion-, and decor-lovers around the world count the days down to the annual Nordstrom Anniversary Sale.

5 Things That 'Shameless' Got Wrong About Bipolar Disorder

There is so much more than Ian and Monica lead viewers to believe.

"Shameless" is a hit television series that airs across the world, for my own personal viewing on Netflix. While the show is a major hit, people aren't talking about the issues in the portrayal in the "mental health" category. Ian and Monica are both pretty important characters with bipolar disorder (BD). There are, however, five major flaws with what their bipolar looks like.

Dear Grandma,

I wish my words could adequately explain how much I miss seeing your smile and hearing your laugh. You were such a bright ray of sunshine in my life and now that you're gone, I can't help but remember all the times we had together.

- Though as a little girl, I had the silkiest, softest hair that would get compliments everywhere I went, since I turned about thirteen I've since had coarse, dry hair no amount of deep conditioning masks or sulfate-free shampoo could fix.

- I started using the Raincry's Condition Boar Bristle Brush several months ago, and while I noticed that my hair had been softer, silkier, and shinier than it had ever been, I didn't make the connection because I never thought a simple hairbrush could make any difference in my hair texture.

- I will be the first to admit that I thought it was ridiculous to spend nearly a hundred dollars on a hairbrush, but this one eliminates the need for me to use any heat tools or styling products on it.

- I put some oil or a serum in my hair when it's wet, brush my hair with the boar bristle brush once it's dry, and end up with the lowest maintenance, shiniest hair I've had since I was 8 years old.
