18 thoughts every girl has while getting ready for a big night out

“Why is everyone here so EARLY?”

IDEALLY, GETTING ready to go out is a relaxing, calming process that sets you up for the big night ahead.

In reality, that is rarely the case. Here are 18 thoughts every girl has had while getting ready for a night out.

1. I never asked if we were going fancy or casual. Damn.

2. Will everyone be wearing heels? *gazes longingly at flats*

3. There are at least 15 photographs of me wearing this dress on Facebook. Perhaps I should have bought something new?

7. *spends 20 minutes adding more songs to the night’s Spotify playlist*

8. Who would DARE come to the door at this ungodly hour?

9. “Err… Can you just hang around down here? I’ll be FIVE MINUTES.”

10. I lied. I will probably be at least 30 minutes.

11. *dries and styles hair at a leisurely pace*

14. Maybe I shouldn’t have drank while I was doing my makeup.

15. I have I feeling I may regret this outfit choice.

But there’s no TIME!

16. What was it Coco Chanel said? Before you leave the house, take off the last thing you put on?

17. Nah Coco, you’re grand. I’m sure I haven’t over-accessorised.

18. Right. I have wrestled with my hair, my clothes, my life choices; I am spiritually and physically broken.

Guess it’s time to go out!
