Snake plants: this is the perfect plant for someone who is rarely home. The snake plant can survive in the near dark, requires little water, and purifies the air.

Ponytail palm: this plant needs consistent light but very little water. You can place it on a window sill and watch it thrive with little care.

Iron plant: this plant was given its name because of its capacity for neglect. The plant has Chinese origins and needs little water or light.

Take charge. doesn’t matter if you are male or female, take charge and plan the entire weekend without asking for permission. Going on a trip that is entirely planned can be a lot of fun and your partner will appreciate it.

 

Don’t plan everything. sure, go ahead and plan a few things, but don’t plan everything. The best romance can come from spontaneity, so leave room for something special to happen.

 

Be cheesy. its ok to be cheesy and over romantic during a weekend trip. Buy candles, roses to spread on the bed, and make a romantic play list.

BBQ Tips: How to Grill A Great Burger

photo-1463183427169-5df5a06d5447-640x427

Grilling a great burger is an art. However, you don’t have to be an expert chef or grill master to do so. All you need is a grill, some meat, and a little bit of patience. Here are a few tips for grilling a perfect burger this summer in your apartment.

Cook beef on high: cooking on medium to low heat will only dry out your piece of meat. Burgers were meant to be flash cooked with high heat in order to trap the juicy goodness inside.

Buy lean, use EVOO: buy lean meats and then mix the beef with extra virgin olive oil in order to keep it moist during the cooking process.

Always toast your bun: if you put a dry bun on a juicy burger, it will fall apart the second you bit into it. So be sure to always toast your bun.

Let him know why is he great: compliments are always amazing and welcomed, but try giving dad specific praise. Tell him in detail why you love him and why he has been a great father.

 

No pressure: dads come in all shapes and sizes with different desires and personalities. So keep the day low pressure and do what dad might want to do. If you have an active dad, get up and go for a morning hike, or if dad would prefer to stay in, have breakfast on the couch and watch something on Netflix.

 

Stay in and cook: restaurants are typically busy on a Sunday and get even more packed on a special occasion. So just skip the lines and eat in. Dad will be sure to enjoy it.

Flowers: the first tip to getting your kitchen table ready is to get your flowery centerpieces ready. Use a mason jar or old wine glass as a vase and pick up some flowers from your local shops. The centerpiece can easily cost less than $10 and still look great.

 

Table runners: Add in a table runner with a flowery pattern or bold pop of color like a neon blue or green. Table runners are cheap and you can change them out every other week.
