Paint Night: A Groupon Favorite

Groupon is a great place to get deals deals deals and also to find things to do near you at a reasonable price. As we leave the dreariness of winter behind like an expired ex and look forward to everything spring and summer has to offer, I’ve found that the deals on Groupon are very appealing to me and my wallet. One such deal is the ever popular Paint Nite.

Created by Dan Hermann and Sean McGrail, paint nite‘s mission is to “encourage creativity, empower communities, and inspire connections (away from the screen), all while offering a new way to go out and have fun”.

Paint at your own pace with others on paint nite

Recently my unicorn (boyfriend) and I decided to give one of these paint nights a try. I’ve tried one of these before with my bestie but why not? Even if you’ve done one of these before, with the variety in pictures you  can choose from, you can learn how to paint different landscapes/pictures every time. So go as often and as much as you want.

Did I mention these events are usually for those 21+ because of the BYOB factor. Getting drunk with friends or a partner/ significant other while painting seems like the perfect adult getaway. Events usually take place at local pubs and bars where drinks can be purchased throughout the night.

The image we chose is titled “Indigo Beach” by local artist Lisa Berger.

It is worth mentioning that a similar event called “Plant Night” is available with the same premise however it caters more to those who don’t feel they’re artistically gifted (you don’t need to be to enjoy yourself). Instead of painting, guests can create a mini terrarium or table top garden while learning about succulents, flower arranging easy gardening with a drink! All of this at your favorite local bar.

Paint Nite is certainly invading local bars and restaurants across the US and Canada with a new way to go out, have fun, and feel good. It’s everything a great nite should be—friends, drinks, and laughter. Plus, you’ll create a one-of-a-kind painting along with the memory of a unique nite out.

The popular event also offers Private Parties, Corporate Events, and Fundraisers helping to raise over $4,000,000! So no matter how you want to get creative, they’ve got just the thing.

As an added bonus to communities, this event helps local artists and Creative Entrepreneurs in over 1700 cities, who own and run the business in their area. This helps them to be able to make a living doing what they love.

So if you’re looking for a fun date idea for Friday night or the weekend, book one of these fun events in your area at Groupon or paint nite’s website.

Being a 90’s kid was the best mainly because of all the cool cartoons that aired on Disney, Nickelodeon and CartoonNetwork. I still remember waking up early on Saturday mornings or coming home after school to catch all the newest episodes.

There are so many good ones to pick from but I’ve highlighted 42 cartoons that 90’s kids watched growing up, some of which are favorites I remember watching as a kid.

What to Watch: The End of the F**king World ( A Netflix Original)

Cue one thrill seeking teenager, a self-confessed wannabe psychopathic murderer and a series of absurd experiences building up to an existential crisis and you have Netflix’s original series THE END OF THE F**KING WORLD. Weird right? Well not really, at the core of it, this dark comedy series is a bildungsroman in all its carpe-diem glory or in other words, YOLO!

Bruno Mars’ Finesse ft Cardi B Gives Us 90’s Nostalgic Vibes

Diving right in, this fun upbeat single and music video sends me right back to my childhood in the 90s.

What to Watch: Dark: Season One (A Netflix Original)

Arguably, Netflix originals are some of the best content to watch. For me, not having the same stories retold over and over with different actors like the Hollywood reboot machine likes to churn out is a refreshing breeze.DARK Netflix original - The Millennial Exclusive

 

Unashamedly, over the last week one series that gripped me was, DARK. This time traveling existential series had me glued to my bed (I watch in bed) reaching for the endless array of snacks set out before me. The series can only be described as a mindf**k  as story lines from the present, past and future seamlessly intertwine leaving you guessing about the true origins of the characters and what the number 33 means in your own personal life.

What I’ve Learned: 1 month after starting my blog (Advice Welcome)

It’s been about a month since starting my blog. It’s been a bit of a learning curve since the whole process seemed intimidating. So far, I’ve learned that blogging can become a passion when you focus on topics and content you care about and your initial reasons for starting. In a previous post I talked about  some goals for my blog and my aspirations for it going forward. You can read more about it  by clicking the link/ image below.

MY GOALS FOR MY BLOG

The Millennial Exclusive: Why I blog and what I want for my blog in the future

On the technical side, I’ve learned quite a few things about optimization (SEO) and marketing, trackbacks/pingbacks, increasing traffic to my site, creating engaging content that will resonate with an audience and viewing blogging as more than just a hobby. I’ll most likely do a blog post in the future on these individual elements when I feel more well versed in them.

However, key takeaways are that in blogging, consistency and time management is key. It’s important to have quality and a genuine voice.  I try to be unique on my site and in my blog posts by mixing educational content with entertainment. It’s also important to take the time to learn the technical aspects of blogging; to give yourself an edge in the void that is the internet. Also engage in others, read their blogs, comment on topics that resonate and interest you and get yourself and your blog out there in front of others.

If anyone has anymore advice on improving my site, please feel free to let me know in the comments. You can also provide feedback from the poll below:

My Goals for my Blog

My Reality TV Guilty Pleasures

Reality TV is entertaining, passes the time and is often times juicy and funny as hell. Now the kind that I like are laced with drama, bursting with life-ruining mayhem and lots and lots of betrayals (yes I know I’m sick but [Tyra voice] you don’t know me!) Anyways, these 3 shows are essential to my late night wind-down and each episode cannot be missed. Don’t judge me. Continue reading My Reality TV Guilty Pleasures

How To: Stay Fit during the Holiday Season

The end of the year doesn’t only bring changing leaves and the first snow fall. First comes October and the Halloween parties, then November and the Thanksgiving induced comas. Next is December’s Christmas parties and festivities, concluding with New Year’s in the biggest blow out yet.

What do all these seasonal events have in common? They involve, in many instances, unhealthy, gluttonous eating and drinking (at least in my life). If you’re like me, you can probably name 100 other things you can be doing rather than working out (I mean working out hurts right?) So, to save us all from the same New Year’s resolution of “getting in shape”, here’s how I stay fit during the holiday season (and all year long really) Continue reading How To: Stay Fit during the Holiday Season

Here’s How I Knew I Wanted Out Of My Relationship

We met online on a popular dating app, the same way many millennials now date. It was in February when we had our first date. I remember the snow fall had created the perfect winter wonderland. We had sushi at a nearby Hibachi restaurant with endless conversation and shared interests. There weren’t any awkward pauses or inappropriate comments/behavior. We ended up staying until the restaurant was closing. Against my general rule of not kissing on the first date, I kissed him goodnight.
