Perks of Being a Blogger Boyfriend: Tea Time with Laundry

I’m thinking of making this a reoccurring column here at Left Coast Fashion as the perks of being a blogger’s boyfriend are many…

This past weekend my boo, Honey & Silk, was invited to a beautiful little high tea action at the London Hotel in Hollywood. We had a wedding that day so when the boo asked the inviters if she could bring her boyfriend they were gracious enough to say YES! Not surprisingly, I had a wonderful time. The tea was hosted by Laundry by Shelli Segal and gathered some of LA’s most prominent bloggers (which I am not haha). As you can see from the photos we were treated to quite the spread, and I even enjoyed my favorite macaroons via Bottega Louie.

The perks of being a blogger’s boyfriend.

Relationship Deal-Breakers

I am in a committed relationship. Repeat.

As a guy with a lot of girlfriends girls that are friends I have that wonderful responsibility of being the logical male advice giver. This is a double edged sword because we (those in my shoes) get a lot of the “why is he being this way” types of questions, but our girlfriends girls that are friends hate us when we give them the logical male answer.

Recently a friend of my girlfriend girls that are friends got herself into a situation with her long time boyfriend that I see as an absolute deal breaker. I can’t stand to hear about it any more because it makes my blood boil. When you’re with someone how many deal breakers does it take to say enough? Well, after reading this list I think it should only be one…but that’s my logical male mind.

What do you think? Read on… (more…)
