If you have never been in a long distance relationship here is some advice–avoid them at all costs.
If you are currently in one here is some advice–just because your significant other is thousands of miles away that is no excuse to let yourself wallow in self deprivation.
From a girl that is currently in a long distance relationship it can be easy to wake up in the morning turn on some Say Yes to the Dress with a big bag of chocolate and start dreaming about one day actually trying on a white dress of one of your own. (Hey lets not get ahead of ourselves your significant other is a thousand miles away here).
It’s important to remember to take care of yourself and keep busy while apart. I have created a summer goal of losing weight, classic I know, but having a goal keeps me motivated and doesn’t hurt to pass the time either. A good dose of Say Yes to the Dress is healthy for any girl, but substitute some yummy fruit for the chocolate just to stay on target.
Now that your beau is away take some time to catch up with the girls (Magic Mike did just come out in theaters ladies). This is a great excuse to get dolled up, because if your anything like me my shorts and tank tops, no makeup and ponytail regiment has taken over my life. So bust out that curling iron and mascara and rock a hot look for the night. Skip the LBD and go bold in pastels or and killer wedges.
Bonus: Set up a skype date with your man post movie and he won’t know what hit him.
The point is we all know long distance relationships suck, but make a goal to stay motivated and don’t forget to adore the small things in life!
