Top 5 Styles I No Longer Sport

1- Flip flops. Unless I’m at the beach, it’s highly unlikely you will catch me with these on my feet. My grandmother once told me they were “sloppy and noisy” and only excusable on teenagers…years later, I have to say I agree.

2- Butterfly sleeves. They look stunning on the hanger…and atrocious on the bod. Trust me.¬†

3- Denim jackers. I know they’re back and I know they’re all over the runway…but I would bet my life savings that a black or white blazer would make any outfit look better.

4- Tracksuits. This style is almost as 2003 as Paris Hilton.

5- Dresses with a banded bottom. That was a fun/brief moment in time wasn’t it? Too bad Jersey Shore had to come and ruin it for us all.

Top 5 Ways To Turn Around A Craptastic Day

1- If the weather is nice, go to the store and purchase your most favorite mag. Next, pick a cute little restaurant, sit outside, and have a great meal while you read the magazine front-back. It’s the perfect way to de-stress!

2- ¬†Choose your favorite artist (or buy the new record you’ve been wanting) and turn it on while you take a long, relaxing bath. Extra points if you exfoliate.

3- Go to the gym and rock out to hardcore rock/rap. You’ll be ready to kick some ass in no time.

4- Order your favorite delivery and have a DVR party for one. However, limit yourself to three episodes…more than that and you just start to feel worse.

5- If all else fails, call your mom.

Top 5 Reasons To Travel Alone

1- Travel can bring out the the worst, and I mean the worst, in a person–particularly the more high-maintenance types. Do yourself a favor and leave the blowdryer addicts, public transit-phobes, and the A/C divas at home.

2- You don’t have to go see the Statue of Liberty, Eiffel Tower, or Tower of London for the 89723128th time. For anyone who travels regularly, this can be the worst part of bringing along newbs. Go solo and you have the time to search out a city’s hidden gems!

3- No one has to know that you ate at McDonald’s on your trip abroad.

4- You’re forced to make an effort with the locals…which can (and does!) produce lifelong friends. In addition, these friends are more likely to know of the best spots to visit on your trip!

5- It’s unbelievably liberating. There aren’t words to describe the confidence/pride you feel after navigating your way, completely alone, through multiple countries, airports, train depots, ports, bus stations, and subway systems. I-n-d-e-p-e-n-d-e-n-t, yea you know what that means!
