Discover the Ideal Meal to Make Your Man

By guest blogger Natasha Burton

We all know that the way to man’s heart is through his stomach—or at least, that’s what the oft-quoted phrase tells us. If you’re wanting to make your guy feel extra special (hey, why not pamper him for a change, right?), you may want to consider making him an unforgettable meal.

To help you get started on deciding what to whip up, here are some questions that will assist you in determining what dish(es) would be ideal for your man. Happy cooking!

1. Does he appreciate home cooking or would he be completely happy with take-out?
2. Is he more of a steak-and-potatoes sort of man or is he okay with eating vegetarian?
3. Does he prefer variety (an assortment of foods for dinner) or consistency (one thing to dine on)?
4. Is he more of a savory or sweet guy?
5. Does he like dessert or would he prefer a more filling meal?
6. Are there any must-haves he likes at dinner (salad, bread, or some kind of carb)?
7. What’s his favorite place to travel to or country he’s visited?
8. Does he have a favorite dish at a restaurant you go to often that you could recreate at home?
9. Does he have a favorite general cuisine?
10. Does his family have a special recipe from his childhood you could make for him?

Now that your creative culinary juices are flowing, check out some popular cooking pinners on Pinterest like What’s Gabby Cooking and 101 Cooking for Two—they’ll help you narrow down exactly what menu to serve.

What’s Her Engagement Ring Style?

By guest blogger Natasha Burton

When you’re ready to pop the question, you’ve likely already talked to your girlfriend about marriage. But you may not have had a conversation about her taste in jewelry—in fact, you may even want the ring you present her to be a complete surprise.

But, given that she’s going to wear her ring ’til death do you part, you’re going to want to get her some bling she’ll like—or, even better, love.

Is she inspired by wedding day fashion & the most famous tiaras worn by royalty? Then consider the Royal Tiara by Peter Lam Luxury collection–sku 0387988 at www.RobbinsBrothers.com

Ask yourself these questions to help guide you on your ring search, from determining the metal the ring should be made of, to the style that would speak most to your girlfriend.

1. Does she normally wear white or yellow gold jewelry?

2. Is her apartment or home filled with antiques, traditional furnishings, or modern details?

3. Which famous classic actress do you think she’d identify with most, Audrey Hepburn, Katherine Hepburn, or Marilyn Monroe?

4. What does her favorite pair of jeans look like? (Worn and vintage? Pristine and crisp? Basic blue?)

5. If she were to order a drink at a bar, would it be a martini, a glass of wine or a craft beer?

6. Does she prefer outdoor activities like hiking or indoor activities like watching movies?

7. Is she a DIY, baking and crafty type or more of a store-bought kind of woman?

8. Is there another piece of jewelry she wears everyday with which you might need to coordinate her engagement ring?

Need a little more guidance? No problem, we got you covered! Check out Find Out Your Engagement Ring Style to see various ring designs.
