10 Date Ideas For The Holiday Season

For those weekends with your significant other where you want to do a little something extra rather than just watch Netflix at home.

Basic or extravagant, make these dates count this holiday season.

1. Go to Disney!

Whether you go for Halloween Horror Nights or during the Christmas time, Disney is a great weekend getaway for you and your significant other. Halloween Horror Nights gives you an excuse to cuddle up to your boy/girl, and Christmas time sets the scene for some amazing pictures with all the seasonal lights and decorations around the park.

2. Go to a pumpkin patch.

This is such a traditional fall date for couples. You go dressed all cute, take some cute pumpkin pictures, you each pick out your own pumpkin, and then you go home and carve them together! Messy, but fun.

3. Try a seasonal coffee/tea/drink from a local coffee shop.

For my fellow coffee lovers out there, this is an exciting date. It isn't super fancy, but it would be fun for you both, and you'd get to try a new drink and feel festive at the same time! It's a win win. Oh yea, and it's cheap, which is always welcome.

4. Go to the movies.

This date is really year-round, but hey, you have to include movie night in a listicle of date ideas, no matter what. The traditional date amongst young couples, where most teenage love stories begin, embrace your inner teenager and go to the movies with your boo this holiday season.

5. Have a movie night in. 

Picture this: you and your man/woman, all cuddled up on the couch, your favorite snacks, your dog, fuzzy blankets, warm drinks, and an amazing movie. What sounds better than that?

6. Bake together.

If there is any time of the year to indulge in your sweet tooth, it's the holiday season. That being said, take advantage of this gluttonous, guilt-free season and plan a night to bake all your favorite sweet treats with your significant other!

7. Go ice-skating.

A classic winter activity that promotes hand holding and mild embarrassment? Count me in. Nothing sounds better than having my boyfriend watch me bust my butt hundreds of times because then he'll feel bad for me and buy me a nice, hot latte. :) Scheme where you can ladies.

8. Take a trip. 

Of course, this applies to those who have the funds to do so, but holiday trips are always super romantic and fun. Some of the best trips to take during this time are either skiing in Colorado/The Swiss Alps/Utah/etc or going to New York for the lights and Christmas festivities.

9. Decorate your home.

If you're like me, decorating during the holidays is your favorite part about the season. Whether it's Halloween, Thanksgiving, or Christmas, plan a day and/or night to spend decorating your home with your partner. It'll be fun for the both of you, and then you get to enjoy the decorations for the entire season!

10. Have a picnic in a nearby park. 

Now that summer is over and the blazing, unbearable heat is starting to calm down a little, take advantage of the cooler weather and have a picnic date! Whether it is lunch, dinner, or just a snack, this date gets you both outside enjoying the beautiful weather that comes with the season.

Epic Activewear Deals Every Leggings-Lover Needs To Know About From Nordstrom's Biggest Sale

Wearing my pleather Alo leggings till someone physically removes them from my body.

I'll be the first to admit I'm not an athletic person, at all. Since junior high school, I've been happily cheering my friends on at their football games and soccer matches from the sidelines as long as I could go home to my yoga mat and spend Sunday mornings at Pilates with my mom's friends.

Weekends are often spent in my casual wear, from the second I throw them on for morning meditation through running errands and evening walks. No, I won't be running a marathon or joining my friend's volleyball league anytime soon.

Disney

I've always been a huge Disney villain fan — whether it was for their cryptic one-liners, enviable outfits, or sidekick banter. Some of the most iconic lines from cinematic history have been said by the characters we love to hate and occasionally dress up as once a year.

The fear-mongering Gaston I now find hilariously cringe-worthy is now charming and oftentimes considered by fans as rightfully justified in his actions. Die-hard fans of the Disney villain fan club claim alternate egos in their favorite evil characters, adopting their hilarious witticisms into everyday life.

TikTok was banned by the president, but Instagram is here with its newest feature called Reel. Many of us are still wondering why TikTok was being banned in the first place. Was it all the dangerous TikTok trends? It was because of a security concern, but not in the way you might think.

TikTok is owned by Dancebyte, which is a China-owned company. Basically, just like any other app, TikTok collects the user's data. The main question to ask yourself when investing in any app or marketing tools who will be owning my data? So yes, China currently owns all the TikTok user's data worldwide.

I Asked My Boyfriend His Opinion On Liking Other Girls’ Pictures, And, Spoiler Alert, It's Cheating

"When you get into a relationship and you're in love, you have to realize that liking photos is for the single lifestyle."

Ladies, listen up. If you are in a relationship with a guy and he is liking other girls' pictures on social media, then it's a red flag. A man who can look at someone else and show interest by liking it means he doesn't care about your feelings AT ALL.

I've been an athlete my entire life. I love movement and I've been jumping, kicking, swimming, dancing, throwing, you name it since I was in diapers. I'm also pretty competitive and probably went through a few sore loser phases. What can I say? I like to win, and losing can sometimes feel like I've failed. Especially, when your competitor is your best friend or someone that you worked all year long to defeat.

11 Reasons Why Getting A Cat Is The Best Thing You Can Do For Your Mental Health

Cats may mess up your puzzles but they'll always love you unconditionally — as long as you have some catnip, that is.

Scout Guarino

Alright, everyone, it's time to stop spreading the rumor that all cats are mean, aloof, and hate everyone. Like dogs, each cat has its own personality and tendencies. Some like a lot of attention, some like less — each person has to find the right cat for them. As for me, my cats Bienfu and Reptar have seen me at my worst, but they've also helped pull me out of it. They're a constant in my life and they give me the strength to get through the day in spite of my depression, and there's even scientific evidence to support it!

- I have extremely sensitive skin, which is why I have always resorted to a plant-based organic beauty line such as Radha Beauty.

- Radha Beauty won me over years ago when I was looking for organic skincare brands.

- I was so excited to see they launched a new line incorporating USDA organic rosehip oil, so when their PR team sent me some, I could not have been more thrilled.

- After a week of using the products, my face felt as smooth as a baby's, looked more glowy than ever, and even cured some of my summer sunburn.

Radha Beauty isn't just a best-selling beauty brand on Amazon — it's a USDA-certified organic beauty brand I live by, and anyone who knows me knows I am all about holistic wellness.

Typically, it only takes three days for me to tell if a skin product is working or not because I have extremely sensitive skin. It's also why I have always stuck by plant-based organic beauty lines such as Radha Beauty.

I have definitely had my fair share of breakups. I broke up with my high school sweetheart my second semester of college (he was cheating on me), I had a breakup with another guy I thought I was going to marry, and others in between. Regardless of whether you're the one doing the dumping or being dumped, breakups can HURT.

Social media is something many of us have been addicted to (whether we want to believe it or not) since the moment we got it. I remember getting Facebook at 10. Instantly I was hooked. I loved being able to share my life with people, a little too much in my opinion, and I loved being able to see how/what other people were doing all the time.
