Though Gossip Girl’s Blake Lively, 23, recently returned to New York to film the show’s fifth season, that surelydidn’t keep her from spending quality time with her new beau, 35-year-old Leonardo DiCaprio, according to UsMagazine.com. The new couple was spotted shopping in Santa Barbara, California as Lively helped her honey pick out a fresh pair of Carrera X-cede shades on Wednesday. “They seemed very much in love,” a store rep said.

What are some everyday couples activities that will get you out and about?

Cupid’s Advice:

Think of things that both you and your mate like to do, and get the ball rolling. Cupid has a few starters:

1. Cool off: It’s summer time. Who doesn’t want to find a way to stay cool? Take your honey for a dip in the nearest community pool, or better yet, the beach if possible. And if you really want to add excitement, go to a water park for the day and stay chilled for awhile.

2. Get moving: It may not sound like a cool activity, but it will be fun once you start.  Exercise as a couple. Go for a jog with your mate and just chit chat about life. Once both of you get in the mood, you’ll be able to motivate each other.

3. You can never go wrong: If all else fails, the movies is always the easiest way out. There’s always a new romantic comedy or action flick hitting the big screen. Take your honey and enjoy!
