For those who stand firmly behind the "old-fashioned" way of meeting people and for those who care more about the quality of their interactions vs. the quantity, Tinder can come off a bit, um ... aggressive. That's one way to put it. Well, coming from someone who was never into online dating, I'm here to tell you that there are "other" ways to use Tinder, because I'm a part of one of the few real success stories that have[...]

When my boyfriend and I decided we were traveling to Malta for NYE, I was determined to find a dress that would match the neutral nude/beige colors and textures of the European island. While Malta isn't really colorful like so many other European countries, I find its primarily monochromatic aesthetic to be incredibly beautiful. You'll find hints of Italian, British, and even a little French influence, but it's this natural limestone-induced architecture that is the authentic and traditional Maltese feel that is indica[...]
