How to nail your first date with a girl who is successful

So you’ve finally convinced the super banging girl of your dreams to go on a date with you, maybe she’s not even the girl of your dreams yet but top 10 in your 60 matches on Tinder. So how do you nail that first date? Read on…

1. Have a list of restaurants/ cafes/ places to take her. If she says she’s not picky, it means she wants you to make the decision. There’s something sexy about a guy who can make decisions because this girl is probably making decisions all day in her own life and her job. It’s nice for someone to take the weight off once in a while.

2. Don’t be late - If you’re prone to being late to things then aim to be early. If you think it’ll come off as cool and nonchalant rocking up late, it’s not. This girl has taken time out of her busy schedule to meet you so don’t waste it, she’s organised and she’ll feel respected if you arrive early/ on time. First impressions count!

3. She’ll like it more if you book a table instead of just rocking up to a venue and hoping they have a spot & waiting around for 30 minutes. It shows you’re organised & thoughtful. Obviously coffee or lunch would be a different situation.

4. Don’t mention how much you’ve stalked her on social - you might think it’s cute and endearing and she’ll love the attention but it kind of just comes across as creepy. (Even though she’s probably done the same to you.)

5. Stay off your phone - There’s nothing more rude than someone texting or checking their phone while at dinner. Not even on a first date but any date, even friend dates.

6. Eye contact and lots of questions – I know how hard it must be not to let your eyes slip and go south of the lips “but she’s wearing that low cut top, obviously she wants me to look?!” No, she doesn’t. You look like a creep.

7. Pay – Maybe I’m old school but there’s something chivalrous about a guy who doesn’t expect you to pay for half the meal… unless of course the date sucked! Girls love guys who are generous.

8. Walk or drive her home - this shows you want to end the date on a good note, that you care if she gets home safely and you want to spend those extra few minutes with her.

9. Don’t ask to go back to her place – that’s also just creepy, unless she suggests it, then do not bring it up.

10. Kiss her – Don’t be a pussy. This is where the fireworks happen! Unless the date was a failure and there was no chemistry, then don’t kiss her, or unless you met up for coffee and its midday then yeah don’t kiss her in broad daylight – that will be awkward and there will be people around. No to PDA!

11. Text her by lunchtime the next day - if you text her that night you run the risk of looking too keen and desperate, keep her interested, but five days or even 24 hours is too long. She wants to know you really like her and that you’ve been thinking about her.

Good luck, guys and happy dating!

In my last post I spoke about what I did day to day and vaguely what I’ve done to get to where I am today. I got a huge response via comments and emails and I’m really stoked I shared it. This is honestly why I got into this industry in the first place, to help out those around me – build them up and build the community. I love the blogosphere and the friends I’ve made along the way.

In addition to my last post another way I believe you’ll gain traction through your blog or to get into the industry is by networking. You need to engage with your audience, other bloggers and with those around you. The honest truth is that likes are free - why are people holding onto them like they’re currency? I don’t see the point in being stingy when it comes to liking a pic, it can make someone’s day and I mentioned before that it shouldn’t be about competing with one another but building each other up. This is a simple but necessary mentality I hope that this generation can grasp a hold of.

Even better is that it’s the middle of winter and I’m wearing a romper on the beach – didn’t even have to photoshop goosebumps out because it was actually warm. I love Sydney. <insert grateful hands emoji>

I’m a pretty big advocate for online shopping – there’s nothing better than comparing prices, seeing product on models, not having to wear pants while you click away and getting things sent to you than shopping online. I know it’s not for everyone but to those people I say – clearly you’re doing life wrong (joking, kind of, not really). So when I saw Beginning Boutique had this gorgeous playsuit well you know where it goes from there.

I love the new take on summer nautical stripes so of course I had to shoot it next to the wavy waves of the ocean. I also love teaming navy and tan, nothing against the navy/ black combo but I’d prefer to leave it to the cooler months.

Hope your week is killing it so far.

Today and everyday until it’s Christmas day I’m going to be freaking out about Christmas. I love Christmas but I am not a gifty person whatsoever, I blame my parents. My mum’s the type that would buy herself a present way before Christmas and just ask for money. I don’t let my dad buy me presents without me specifically tell him what it is to be, and even then it always comes in the form of cash, joint with my mum. Not to say that my family isn’t above board in the love each other department, I’m just saying, I was never conditioned to love giving or getting presents. This can also do with the fact that I hate surprises. I can’t act, I hate pretending that I love the present that I don’t like. And if you’re buying me a present you’re close enough to me for me to say I don’t actually like or need it. So it’s awkward for everyone.

I’d rather spend my days out of the shopping centres or not shopping online and in the sun like I am here in my Keepsake shorts & Kim Kardashian knit tank, (in one of my previous posts I might have gone OTT for my love of KK and this is the closest I can get to the megababe) I like the knit tank because I love texture in outfits mixed with prints.

Happy shopping lol

An easy way to wear a crop without showing your midriff is by layering, even a tee or longer tank can be layered underneath because there are definitely days I’m not feeling particularly keen to out the belly out. Amirite?

I’m also wearing my Daniel Wellington watch, as mentioned before, the guys at DW were so generous they’ve given all of you a 15% discount code* if you wish you pick up your own watch (or a Christmas gift for someone special??) just punch in ‘fashionandsounds’ in the checkout. I actually really love the simplicity of their styles & quality of the leather.

That’s all from me, I’m quite exhausted!

One of the best parts of hiring a car while travelling is getting to stop at natural wooden playgrounds like this. I thought I’d wear an outfit that really blends into the surroundings (like camo) with sharks and floral and what not. Totally joking but I love mixing prints. Keepin’ it freshhh, keepin’ it real.

Looking at these photos we took on the perfectly sunny and hot weekend while hearing the most intense thunder storm outside. Surreal. There’s nothing much in the way of outfit in this look except for this playsuit. A stunningly gorgeous white, delicate number from Keepsake the Label. Inspired by Studded Hearts and Wolf Cub Chronicles (two of my favourite blogs) I felt like taking a different approach to your standard standing up and down blogging. Not trying to be a model by any means but just trying to push my own boundaries as far as art and photography. More to come but I hope you guys can get on board.

I was getting seriously swept off my feet while shooting these hence the OTT happiness & LOLs. I do love a good windy shot though. I’m sporting a 2 piece set from Mink Pink to add to that double happiness value, paired back with classic black booties, blazer and hat to tone down the cheesiness. Ok, I’m so lame, and I’m so tired from being in the sun all day. Until next time!

Hi All, hope you’ve had a really amazing weekend! I spent half my weekend out with friends, seeing the sunrise over the harbour bridge, went to the movies and met new friends out and about. I spent the other half home alone, churning through Prison Break. I know I’m a little slow to that one but I love prison tv shows and never watched this one back in the day! It’s stressful. So so stressful. But I spent half the time watching it on the treadmill so maybe that amped me up a little more. Being an introvert I definitely appreciate my time alone – I have alot of energy now even though I’m about to head to sleep. But I’m feeling goooood.

In this look which I am wearing trusty Cameo shorts (also styled here and here) and the cutest ever bikini top with chunky plastic zipper and diamond quilting detail under a zip-off trench I designed (available AW15) with my fave ever LOC hat which I get a lot of love for every time I wear it, I really need to invest in more!
