I don’t go out.

Well I do but rarely.

Today I wanted to chat about how to survive a girls night out when you’re a bit of a granny like me… Because chances are if you’re reading this on a Friday night you and I are pretty damn similar.


Drink tonnes of water the day before
Like tonnes. It’ll help with recovery (if you’re drinking) and keep you feeling fresh.


Choose something with sleeves
It’s going into winter here so wearing small cami tops is now a thing of the past. Don’t be over ambitious by choosing something that is super skimpy – just where the darn long sleeve top! I absolutely love this Maeve Off The Shoulder Top in Rust because it’s still dressy but have long sleeves. If my arms are warm, I’m warm – win.


Find a pair of shoes you love to wear
I know you guys are probably sick to death of me talking about my stupid Senso Riley’s but they’ve been the best pair of shoes I’ve ever bought. I can dance all night in them without any worry at all and they’ve really lasted the test of time. Find a pair of shoes whether it be boots, flats or heels that just mould to your feet and make you feel great. That way you won’t be the sad sack complaining about your feet hurting.


Don’t underestimate the power of eating beforehand
Even if you’re not drinking if you’re a granny like me you’ll just get hungry. I do drink and I find if I don’t eat something beforehand I peak then crash super early. Even if it’s just a snack trust me, your belly, you and all your mates will thank you because you won’t be a hangry bitch.


Sneak some waters in
Go to the bar and smash a glass of water when you can. It’ll get your body hydrated and will make your hangover WAY WAY WAY better.


Don’t be afraid to leave early
In true granny spirit don’t feel shit if you need to leave early. A couple of years ago I would’ve felt super guilty and like a crap friend for bailing but there is no shame when it comes to being the first one home. Just remember everyone is different, some people like staying out to 4am whilst others like to come home with their pizza and pop their bed socks on. And that is okay.

    HAH! I love this post, it really made me laugh because I am the same way. The struggles! Love your outfit, by the way I don’t think it makes you look granny-like at all!

    My personal tip is I try to hype myself up for the event by listening to exciting music before I leave the house!

    It’s been a really long while since I’ve been out. As a self confessed granny myself I now have a child to use as my excuse to not go out. If I DO go anywhere, I am usually the first person to leave. And I make no apologies for that. I have no choice in having to be up early in the morning and a good nights sleep is key for me. ITS honestly SO boring if I don’t drink when I go out. Im just so socially awkward, so at least a drink or two is needed for me or i’ll just be sat in the corner yawning my head off! BUT if I can’t drink for whatever reason I hang out a lot around the food because it gives me something to do. I dunno, i’m just not that into just standing around and talking. And if theres no dancing going on then I just would rather be in bed. haha!

    I always forget to drink water when I am out and always regret it in the morning! One thing I do well though is wear good shoes ;) comfy shoes are the only way.
