Theoretically, I think parties are great. I love them, because what’s not to love, right? But in reality, we all know the stress that comes with trying to get out the door when you really don’t feel like it — be it because you’re not coping well with a winter bug, your hair is not cooperating or you just don’t want to deal with people. And I think that today, of all days, is the perfect time to offer some helpful tips that’ll have you feeling fabulous when you venture into the social wilderness this evening. As always, we can seek some inspiration from the iconic fashion and beauty quotes out there.
Tonight is the one night of the year when the pressure to have the best party EVER is higher than any other night of the year. I’m not going to be able to keep you from getting arrested or anything dramatic like that. But I can give you my favorite tips that I use to make myself feel great when I’m heading out the door and dealing with busy social occasions. I know the social butterflies among you will not know what I’m taking about. You’ve probably been bouncing around for hours in anticipation of the night ahead. But for the rest of us, I’ve collected my favorite quotes to put some spring in your step this NYE.
I too hear the voice that says you could just stay home in your pajamas with hot chocolate and movies, and YES… it does sound tempting. But NO! We are going to do this thing; you and I together! We are going out, and we are going to feel fabulous doing it.
