Guest Post: L' Esthetique // Bobbins and Bits Giveaway Winner

We hope everyone had a fabulous weekend!

We spent our weekend roadtripping to California and spending time with our families!
As you might've guessed, blogging can get a little difficult when we aren't together.
So, instead of going on a blogging hiatus, we set up some guest posts for you!

While we're livin' it up, enjoy our awesome guest posts and check in to see our 1,000 Follower Giveaway Week winners!

Stay sweet.


Well hello, Awkward Girls readers! I'm Tiana and I am so thrilled to be filling in for Lauren and Madison while they're away. I blog over at l'esthetique, and like to consider it my home away from home. While many of my posts are ootd's and my random babbling about life, I wanted to bring you all something a lil'bit special and a lil'bit different - what I think are the fundamentals to a great summer date night! 

1/ a fun, yet stylish outfit (sans uncomfortable walking shoes!)

My personal outfit: dress | similar sunglasses | sandals | camera bag | watch | local earrings

2/ exciting and unconventional restaurant selections

Try somewhere you've never been before! Explore new places! It'll be an adventure for both you and your date.

3/ a good attitude and an open mind!

Date nights are all about surrounding yourself with good people and doing things you both enjoy. Be positive and keep a carefree mentality. What you end up doing could be way more fun than what you had originally planned.

4/ a good listening ear

Take this time to learn something about your date that you didn't know before (and vise versa!). Regardless of if you've been dating 5 years or 5 minutes, there's always something new to be learned and something personal to be shared.

5/ a back-up plan

For those times when you finish eating early or have no idea what to do next, have a few activities in the back of your mind to suggest so that there are no awkward pauses or long bouts of silence. It could be anything from that movie you've been dying to see to your favorite dessert bar.

These are simply the things that I find essential to a summer date night. They make be quirky, and they may be a bit old-fashioned, but they've never steered me wrong!

What are some of your summer date night fundamentals?
