Jason Kennedy 'Trying to Look Cool' Around Girlfriend Lauren Scruggs

The E! News host and the fashion blogger and Still Lolo author – who was injured in a propeller accident in December 2011 that left her with a prosthetic arm and removed her left eye – haven't been dating for long, but they hate to be apart.
With Kennedy, 31, being based in L.A. and Scruggs, 25, living in Dallas, they're clocking a lot of frequent flyer miles when they see each other on weekends, but he misses her when she's not around.
"It's been a tough week because she hasn't been here," he told PEOPLE at the 5th Annual Night of Generosity at the Beverly Hills Hotel on Friday. "We see each other pretty frequently. She was here last weekend, the weekend before. I'm going to be in Dallas with her next weekend. So it's going great. She's amazing."
The couple recently vacationed at the Villa del Palmar in Mexico, where they went paddleboarding and kayaking together – activities that pushed Kennedy a little out of his comfort zone.
"I am probably the least adventurous person, but I'm trying," he said with a laugh. "I'm trying to look really cool around her, letting her know that I'm trying new things in life. I'm down to do whatever."
