10 qualities your boyfriend should have

josh murrary andi dorfman

1. He should be handy. You'd be surprised how many guys I know that can't change a tire, fix the TV, put together a dresser, or carry heavy things.

2. He knows the types of gifts to get you. He knows not to get you the kind of jewelry you will never wear, but knows you can never have too many bags or gift certificates to Lululemon.

3. He has your back to other people- even when you're completely wrong. (But of course yells at you later)

4. He stays calm when you're not. After all, a girl can't be in a relationship with someone who gets just as crazy as her.

5. He knows how to wear a hoodie, basketball shorts, and nikes on a Saturday. My biggest pet peeve is a guy who is always in questionably tight jeans, a button down, and rocking the perfect amount of hair product.

6. He will fight you on it, but somehow always sits through all 120 minutes of The Bachelor every Monday night.

7. He's terrified of losing you.

8. He's athletic, active, and can talk sports with the best of them.

9. He's not skinnier than you are.

10. He's not cheating on you, he would never cheat on you, and the thought of him cheating on you would never cross your mind because he's made you that secure.

Trend Alert: High Slit

trend alert: maxi dress with high slit

I think there are a few things that are very appealing about this new,huge trend. First of all, it is an overall classy look, but does add a hint of sex appeal. Second, it allows you to wear something tight while having the fabric "give" (aka the slit). And third, it forces you to keep it classy on the top, and then depending on the dress you show as little or as much leg as you want. The high slit on a maxi also allows you to wear a long dress without feeling the commitment of a long dress (being too conservative, too much material, not showing off your figure, etc.) Which ones do you like? My favorite is the Helmut Lang maxi! xx

DIY: Wine Popsicles

When entertaining, I always like to have creative desserts, appetizers and drinks. Wine popsicles are one of my favorite ways to supply my guests with alcohol. They are really fun and easy to make. I suggest doing half red wine and half white wine so that people have their choice of drink/treat. Be sure to keep them in the freezer for at least 6 hours before serving them. It's also super cute to place them in the respective pre-filled red and wine glasses. Cheers!
