sporty and cheap date ideas
Take advantage of this great Spring weather and plan an active and adventurous date with your honey. 1. Go for a romantic bike ride & picnic Dust off your bike, pack a light picnic and hit the road with your honey for a few hours. After riding for a few hours step off your bikes, take out your picnic of light sandwiches, fruits and maybe a little vino, and relax. After lunch take a nap, relax and when you're ready ride home. This is a fun date idea that can be as short or as long as you want it, so make it your own and enjoy! 2. Go boating Most cities and towns have a nearby lake, ocean or river, so take advantage of it! Rent a canoe or kayak and spend a few hours slowly paddling and enjoying the peace of the water. 3. Try out rock climbing This activity is sure to get your blood rushing, whether it's an indoor gym or outdoor area! The thrill of climbing high will get your blood rushing and when you have to lean back to get down you are sure to skip a few heartbeats! Rock climbing is a great trust builder, and for some thrill seekers the excitement can be super sexy! 4. Take a hike! Hiking is a fun way to see the outdoors and to get fit! You can go to the countryside, mountains, or even in your own city - so find your fancy and spend a few hours walking and talking...maybe even ending up at a cute cafe for a little lunch or afternoon tea.

Spring is a time of change, renewed energy, and best of all wonderful fashion after months of drab and dark winter clothes! To help you out we’ve made a list of what you need for the new season and how much you should spend to get it. But be warned, this is not your typical list - this doesn't show a list of over priced and super trendy one season only fashions. These shopping essentials are meant to last for seasons and be reasonably priced - helping you look great, and invest in items that you can get maximum wear out of!

neutral heels with fun details
Neutral Coloured Heels With Fun Details – approx $150 These are a good staple because they can go with pretty much anything, can last several seasons and are super versatile for work and for fun. These also go really well with the military inspired clothes that are popular now, in case you want to mix some trendy items in your wardrobe.
