Panasonic Lumix challenged me to think about how we can capture our precious moments to celebrate the release of their new waterproof camera. I’m rubbish at remembering to capture the occasion, so this was the perfect challenge!
For our date, we decided to do head into Central. We live in London, so there is no shortage of things to do. First stop was brunch at Coppa, followed by a wander around. We spotted this cute arched flower display at Leadenhall Market and couldn’t resist.
We finished off the day heading to the Sky Garden. It’s free to go up (better to book in advance), and you have some of the most stunning skyline views. Perfect for photo opportunities or just the chance to relax, sip a cocktail and appreciate life.
Simple ways you can create lasting memories:
Cook a surprise meal for your partner. Don’t forget to create the right atmosphere by adding candlelight.
Have a picnic in the park. The downside is it’s weather dependent, but who says you can’t just have it in the living room if the weather decides not to play ball?
Make homemade pizza. Pizza is fun and easy to make. You can even buy the pre-made dough if you aren’t confident enough to make your own.
Watch a movie under the blanket. Popcorn, candles and a good film = perfect date. This is perfect for those cold days and keeping the winter blues at bay.
Go for a walk. This can be anything from a walk to the local pub, a ramble in the countryside, to anything in-between. We love walking along the river paths and finding a nice pub.
Discover a new place together. Look out for offers or things like Groupon, which can help you save a fortune.
Learn something together. Maybe if you have an upcoming trip to a different country, you could learn the language together? Or go on an experience day like gin making, if you want just a fun day.
Work out together. It can be really motivating to go together. Plus you both get the feel-good endorphins buzzing together.
So, no more excuses:
The important thing to remember is to spend quality time together. Make time for dates. One of the biggest excuses for not going on dates is a lack of time or money. What if we make time by changing routines and try to reduce the stress in our lives? Plus you don’t have to spend a fortune and there’s so much you can do for free.
Whatever you do, just remember to spend quality time and do things together and create those lasting memories.
