Now here's a trend most of us can relate to: Every year you say to yourself, "This year I'm going to be prepared for party season." But, with all the gifts to buy, plans to make, and party outfits to try on, you inevitably forget about taking care of yourself. (Am I right on this one?)Not to worry, because I've got all the pocket-sized party ammunition you could possibly ever need.
Assume that you're going to drink too much. I'm not saying that you have no willpower. I'm just saying that, with all the great music, great food, and great friends, it's easy to get caught up in all the fun. So, buffering your system before the party may be your best bet against the dreaded hangover. And if you do stay within your limits, great! No harm, no foul.
Save your feet for the dance floor.Trashed feet suck, and waiting until your blisters are busting open is a big no-no in my book. And, while blister pads are great after the fact, I suggest that you prevent them altogether. Otherwise, you may find yourself barefoot, or worse -- sitting alone.

Don't get stuck in a compromising position. Unfortunately, crowds + alcohol + late nights can often spawn stupidity and predatory behavior. So, be prepared to make some crazy noise with a personal alarm if anyone tries to follow you. And if that doesn't work, spray that son of a bitch in the face!

little stash can go a long way. I have a terrible habit of forgetting where I put by purse and am always afraid that I'm going to lose it when I go out. This is especially troubling where my house keys, money, and driver's license are concerned. I also have a terrible habit of popping buttons and/or ripping seams half way through a night of dancing. So, with that in mind, stashing the 'essentials' like an extra key and emergency cash in your bra along with a mini emergency kit in your pocket might just be your saving grace during party season.

Don't end the celebration with an STD. I don't think I need to tell you that people lose their inhibitions when they drink. And, with alcohol flowing while dashingly handsome [and hopefully single] guys are batting their eyelashes everywhere you turn, you owe it to yourself to be safe in the event you give into those primal urges after your fourth Cosmopolitan.

Manage your hangover like a champ.So, even with all your best intentions, those Appletinis were just too good to pass up. And, mixed with that champagne toast, 1/2 bottle of Merlot, and a plate full of mystery finger foods, you have a hangover that could kill a horse. My advice? Drink lots of water, turn off the barf switch, and boost your electrolytes. (Nauzene Chewable Stomach Relief Tablets & Zym ElectrlyteDrink Tablets)
9) Be prepared for the toilet from hell.Know what's worse than having to pee in a dirty public toilet? Having to puke in one!! Seriously, even the nicest places can get a little gritty this time of year, especially with all the drunks missing the target. So, instead of finding yourself stuck in a stall with a toilet that bites back [think 'frat house nightmare' meets 'truck stop diaster'] be sure to carry a little can of disinfectant spray and some toilet seat covers, which can also double as toilet paper.

10) Party like an animal, don't smell like one. There's only one thing worse than partying with a stinky person: Being that stinky person. I agree that it's not practical to carry a toothbrush, toothpaste, a stick of deoderant, personal hygeine wash, etc. in your clutch. But nobody said you have to! Instead, sport travel-size packettes andtowellettes that don't take up much room. (La Fresh Travel Wipes Kit)
Well you can also go out get totally pissed out of your brain wake up in a room full of stranges naked sleeping ! And the best way to solve that brain black out memory is just go back to the bar and this time have a double shot and check you are dressed .... 😝
