Top 5 Things You Don’t Want To See On A Saturday Afternoon

1) Stacked heels. While I love my Louboutins more than anyone, this just comes off a little garish. Save it for the evening, girlfriend. 

2) A line at your favorite bagel place. Ughhhhh, don’t they know that you’ve been looking forward to this egg and cheese treat all week?!

3) An email from work. I’m sorry, I can’t hear you over my complete indifference. ***

4) Inclement weather. Dear powers-that-be, save that mess for lazy Sundays.

5) The inside of a car for more than 45 minutes. However, if forced, this situation can be slightly improved with an icy beverage and Dolly Parton tunes.

***but I promise to care on Monday.

Top 5 Things I Learned in Vegas

1- You can bedazzle anything…and I mean anything.

4- Quoting The Hangover never really does get old.

5- What happens in Vegas…gets Instagrammed. New slogan, ya’ll?

Top 5 Signs You Need To Get Out Of Town

1- You are up-to-date on all of the recent Netflix releases…and consider it quite the accomplishment.

2- You are still hanging out with your ex-boyfriend…and you can’t figure out if it’s because of boredom or genuine affection.

3- You consider housesitting a real adventure.

4- You can’t remember the last time you saw your college peeps…or reminisced about the time that one of you spray painted the house with her cat’s name.

5- You have worn out your welcome at the local Starbucks, Panera, and Au Bon Pain…and have started calling these places your “office.”

Top 5 Reasons I Love America

1- In my opinion, we have the best patriotic music in the world…and hearing these tunes never fails to take me back to middle school chorus.

2- Without leaving the country, you can visit the desert, mountains, beaches, swamps, glaciers, and Vegas.

3- Free refills and unlimited ice at almost every restaurant.

4- The country was created by men and women who refused to be told what to do…and that’s definitely badass.

5- Channing Tatum.

4- I have a skinned knee that looks stupid with all of my outfits.

4- They oftentimes know how to cook interesting and unusual food…excluding the Brits, naturally.

Top 5 Reasons You Should Go To The Beach

1- The frizzier the hair, the more fun you’re having.

2- You get to show off your masterful self-tanning skills…which is no small feat. 

3- Heels are frowned upon, so now’s the chance to give your worn out arches a break.

4- It’s the perfect excuse to eat shrimp every.single.night. Shrimp-kabobs, shrimp creole, shrimp gumbo. Pan-fried, deep fried, stir-fried. There’s pineapple shrimp, lemon shrimp, coconut shrimp, pepper shrimp, shrimp soup…

5- It’s good for your soul, fool! Now hit the road.

Top 5 Skills I’ve Learned In Europe

1- Holding on for dear life. Yes, Ryanair…I’m talking to you. Really though, what can you expect when you pay .50 pence for a flight to Spain (plus taxes of course)??

2- Eating outside. No thank you, I will NOT pay an eat-in fee. C’mon jambon baguette…let’s go sit under the Eiffel Tower. 

3- Avoiding cute flower panhandlers. Not sure what it is, but Europe has much more attractive vagabonds and crooks than we do here in the States. And naturally, they all tell you how beautiful you are…bella americana, indeed.

4- Reading a (real, live) map without the help of my beloved iPhone. No international service brings out the retro in all of us.

5- Asking for ice…and specifically, more than one piece of it.

Top 5 Reasons Why 27 Is A Weird Age

1- Some of your friends are married with two kids and a mortgage…while others sleep on people’s couches and live off a diet of ramen and Jim Beam.

2- It seems like your peeps are either || to getting hitched or lightyears away from settling down. There is no in-between.

3- It’s when you really start to notice the whole aging thing. You say no to going out on weekdays because you really don’t have the desire…not solely because you’re trying to make a responsible decision.

4- You spend money on kitchen supplies. And know how to use them.

5- Your vacation requirements aren’t limited to hotties with bodies, free booze, and endless tanning options.

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!
