It's Possible For Him To Fall Back In Love With You

You wouldn’t think that you would need advice on how to make your man fall in love with you once he’s already been, but as we know, relationships can be unpredictable. Maybe the trust was broken somewhere down the line, or things began to grow stale – whatever it is, you’re at the point in your so-called “relationship” where you’re holding onto something that’s changed. Something that feels foreign and strange.

Even when you look at your boyfriend, your best friend, you feel different. There’s a distance there, and distances like these often go both ways. If you were the one who screwed things up, then you feel like the whole relationship is weighing on your shoulders and it’s now your turn to ensure that you do whatever you can to fix it. Because being without him is no life at all. And so, you try and try, but the more you try, the more distant you feel.

It’s strange, but you shouldn’t have to try so hard. If it was this hard to fall in love in the first place, then it never would have happened at all. And so, take a step back, and remember who you used to be. Remember the girl he fell in love with. The girl he couldn’t get enough of as he texted you whenever he could, kept you awake at night when you should have been sleeping, and kept a smile on your face even when he wasn’t around.

And remember, it goes both ways. Even if it was just you who managed to bring the relationship into the gutter, he should still try to salvage it. Because you would be gone by now if this was a relationship not worth fighting for. So think back to how natural it was to fall in love, before the days where you let mistrust, anger, jealousy or boredom get in the way of something great. You would think before you spoke, always respected them and did whatever you could to make them happy.

You were you. Carefree and wonderful and not weighed down by our own insecurities. Laidback, easygoing. You made him fall in love with you because you were being you. So remember that as you move forward and try to bring some normality back into the swing of things. You may soon find that not only do you get the love back, but you get it back deeper. More intimidate. More full of passion. More full of the willingness to never let it get to this point ever again.

You got this.

Get Ready For Summertime with COIN's Latest Release, "Talk Too Much"

Via: atwoodmagazine.com

When I first discovered the Nashville-based band, COIN, last year, I knew it was fate. One listen of their incredibly catchy and feel-good song, "Run," and I was hookedcome to think of it, I think all it took was 10 seconds of listening to know that they would soon become one of my favourite bands. 

So when they began teasing the release of their new song, "Talk Too Much," on their Facebook and Snapchat pages, I listened to those snippets over and over until I couldn't get enough. And then, like the angels they are, they released the song one day early. 

It's catchy, feel-good, and will have you feeling all the #summertimefeels. Take a listen below to see just why these guys are becoming unstoppable in the indie music world.

What To Do With These 'Back of Your Mind' Guys?

When I say 'back of your mind,' it might sound as though I'm saying these are the guys in your life who you don't care much about. When, in fact, it's the exact opposite. These are the guys in your life who because you care so much, you've had to push thoughts of them away for so long. 

Maybe it's because you're in a relationship, because they hurt you one too many times, or because you're simply trying to just forget. 

But the one at your back of your mind, might be there forever. Just think of any Nicholas Sparks movie. If Allie in the Notebook had never gone back and fallen in love again with Noah, he would always be a thought at the back of her mind. He was who she thought of as she said yes to her proposal, who she thought of whenever a man took interest in her and who she thought of as she tried on her wedding dress and saw a picture of him in the paper. If she didn't care about him, if his presence on her mind didn't bother her that much, then she would have closed the paper and continued to with her day, with her wedding. With her life. 

That's the funny thing about these guys' at the back of our minds. They're often there for a reason, yet there are plenty of more reasons to stay away. We think of them as our "Noah," as the cliche, "one that got away," and spend late nights creeping their social media profiles, wondering what they're up to, texting them sometimes when we're drunk and in the midst of bad fights with our current lovers, wonder if they're out there somewhere, thinking of us, too. 

These thoughts then turn to guilt as we feel like bad boyfriends or girlfriends. Will we ever take the chance and try to reclaim what once was? In this case, only time will tell.

Scarlett Johansson's Advice On Love That You Need To Read

ScarJo...pixie-haired lady..Doctor of Love...whatever you call her, one thing is clear: she knows a thing or two about love. 

In her new interview with Cosmopolitan, she went deep into the matters of the heart and revealed that even the bombshell herself has had to go through a few tough heartbreaks until she found the one for her. 

"Long, long ago, I had someone in my life who was forever unavailable . . . but, like, so attractively unavailable. You have to get to your breaking point . . . rock bottom is the moment when you're like, 'I've lost myself. Why am I standing outside this bar at 1:30 in the morning texting while my friends are inside? Or taking a taxi to see him at some ungodly hour? This isn't me.' That is the moment you've gotta cut it off. Otherwise, it will keep coming back, suck your blood."
She got out of it, of course, as she is now married and has a baby with the love of her life, but her advice is so spot on, as far too many girls go through pain like this, and for someone who could care less about them. It's never easy to let go, but I always think of it like this: imagine your relationship is a rope and you're holding on and holding on, with the weight at the end of that rope being your relationship. Once your man checks out, it's just you holding on and your fingers start to bleed and it weighs heavily on you that you're doing the work all alone. There comes a point, where you must let go and move on. Far too many girls have a tough time with this, instead staying in those dead-end relationships that could be better described as "relationsh*ts." 

So ladies, if you're reading and currently in a situation like this, listen to our girl ScarJo and move on. You deserve someone who will be outside the club, waiting to pick you up at 1:30 a.m. and someone who will always text you back, no matter what.

Tea for every occasion

I am a huge tea lover. To me, it's like a warm hug to the soul, and it can be an amazing go-to for any health ailment you have. Feeling sick? Have some tea. Anxious? Drink, honey. Here's my list of favourite teas at the moment (though I'm sure I'll always add more!)


This type of tea is so soothing and relaxing. Whenever I'm having a stressful day, I push aside my longing for a glass of wine and go for something healthier. It has a great flavour, smells amazing and you feel the effects right away. Tip: try and find one with lavender as that also has calming properties. 


I am a huge lover of peppermint, whether it's a tea flavour or not, so give this one a try. It's good for stomach and digestion problems, and the flavour of it is one tea that you'll want to add sugar or stevia too if you want something sweeter. 


If you have a cold or digestive problems, this is the tea for you. The flavour is quite strong, but you push past that just knowing the health benefits it's giving you. Try and buy a medicine version of this tea for the most effect.

White chocolate peppermint

Nothing quite gets me in the holiday spirit like a cup of white chocolate peppermint tea. I get mine from Teavana, and while it's pretty pricy, I consider it so worth it when you're all cuddled up, warm and cozy next to the Christmas tree. 

What are some of your favourites?
