A long day of work, a celebration of some sort, and a girl’s night are all excuses to have a beer or five. Today my excuse is moving! A cold beer while working your butt of just goes together- unless you’re at the gym.
So, my utilities have been transferred, my house is all packed up, and now I am just waiting my movers to arrive. Yup, I hired movers. I have a lot of friends that have trucks that could have helped me, but there is no way I would have trusted them moving my stuff. (Sorry friends!)
With that being said, my game plan for today is to look cute in my work out clothes and drink beer like I’m working my butt off. If anyone wants to join me just let me know! 🙂
New Year’s Eve: What’s a better excuse for an extravagant night out on the town, as if being young and single in Dallas isn’t enough? NYE is one of the few nights of the year that girls can buy a fun dress and rock dramatic make up and guys can wear fedoras. No, I’m not talking about Halloween. Yes, fedoras should be limited to be worn on this one night of the year unless you’re Britney Spears.
Here are a few tips for looking good, having fun, and being safe while bringing in the new year:
Sequence aren’t just necessary, they are essential this year. Good riddance, rhinestones!
You won’t look like a drag queen if you go for the dramatic eyes and bold lips look, I promise.
Absolutely no flats! Hell, I’m 5’7″ and will be wearing at least 4″ heels.
If you’re single, go out with your fellow single girls. Let’s be honest, it is hard to mingle and get a few free drinks if you’re with your guy friends.
If you are in a relationship, go out with couples. There’s no need to emphasize on that topic…
Don’t skip your pre NYE meal just because your dress is a little tight. You will regret it. (That’s Drinking 101)
Typically when you drink, you dance, which can be embarrassing the day after when you are looking a your night’s pics. Please don’t pull a Snooki, dancing against a glass wall. Yikes…
I assume boys need a few tips as well:
Pin stripe suits were made for mafia/gang related movies, and white shoes with black pants or jeans don’t go together. (stereotype fashion tip… Had to do it!)
If you see a girl that you want to introduce yourself to, buy her what she’s drinking. Study your bitch drinks so you can master this. Vodka waters w/ lemon, Vodka sodas, skinny Margaritas on the rocks and Michelob Ultras are going to be your most common bitch drinks.
If you are more of a ‘shot buyer’, buy a round of shots to include her friends. Buying one girl a shot or two just conveys the wrong message.
The way you talk to your bartender and interact with the strangers around you reveals a lot about you to people watchers. I’m definitely a people watcher.
It IS okay for guys to dance like Pauly D. and Vinny. I know you are relieved after reading that! Haha… It’s fun and shows that you like to have fun.
Most important tip:
Be safe and DON’T DRINK AND DRIVE!
It usually isn’t hard to find a cab in Dallas, but you might have to help out that person who didn’t read dallasbelle.com and is passing out on the curb at 2AM. Call the Tipsy Tow for them. 1-800-AAA-HELP.
