Night outs are fun any day, rather nights. It means a night of relaxation with friends, escaping from the torturous clutches of our daily routines. We all look forward to that one night out we have been planning for a long time with friends, don’t we? There’s nobody to stop you. The best part about night outs is after the few initial minutes, you can really be yourself. Because others will be so busy being themselves, they will hardly notice the flaws in you. Okay, it’s getting a little on the serious side. Let’s focus on the fun factor. What do I like most about night outs? The hours of planning and preparation, at time even days. Everything, starting from the theme of the party 9if the night out is going to be held at a friend’s place), the outfits, the menu and what not? Girls find it extra fun because they get to show on their best side, which is otherwise restricted because of office or college. So how do you get ready for a night out? Well, I know there are hundreds of things to do or make sure are get done before you step out for that fun night. But let’s say, here are the ten most important things you should do before having a night out. So with this introduction, if you have already something cooking up in your mind, let me help you a little more for that next night out you guys are planning.
Everything is incomplete without music, isn’t it? You are out, having fun and you don’t have music? Too bad. So while you are preparing yourself for the night out, talk it out with your friends about the arrangement of music. Best, if you have a DJ friend in your group. If not, then you and your other friends make arrangements for the music. And Bwo-ho! You are all set for a night out. Great, no?
2. Go single
Having your partner around at a night out is nothing but a D.I.S.A.S.T.E.R. You surely do not want any restrictions put on you when you are out with your friends after a long time. How would you feel if your partner constantly nudges you to go to a quiet corner and wants to spend time with you alone? Or asks you not to get too close with your friends of the opposite sex? Or even restricts you from having a few drinks? Your anger will be increasing, but you cannot let it show because you do not want to create a scene. So isn’t it better to go single? Plus, you have the opportunity to flirt a little too, the healthy flirting I mean.
3. Carry Ample Food
Again the human body factor comes into play. Even if you step out of your house with your stomach fully loaded, you are bound to feel hungry towards the onset of dawn. You never know where the night out will end up, so do carry some food in that bag. Because when you are hungry, you surely miss out on half the fun, because your mind is elsewhere. But please, carry dry foods and ample of it, so that you can share it with your friends too.
4. Get your Bags Ready
After you yourself get ready, get your bag ready. Carry all the items that you think you might need at night. If it is your make up kit, go ahead. There is no harm in that as well. Keep everything in your bag, your phone, your mouth fresheners, and whatever you need. Also carry an extra dress, in case the one you are wearing gets spoiled somehow.
Girls and guys, you surely want to look your best when out for the night. Well, you have taken rest throughout the day and at night you look fresh. You have definitely decided what to wear and all, but do not forget to accessorize. A good dress is incomplete without matching accessories. The cute wedges you have, or the stilettos, or even the loafers, depending on what you are wearing. Keep the makeup minimal. Dress to kill.
6. Decide Your Outfits
When you are going on a night out, please do not be late and make your friends wait, just because you were unable to make up your mind on what to wear. Decide your outfits beforehand to avoid the eleventh hour rush and chaos. Keep it simple and comfortable, yet trendy. Also, the season matters. Don’t go too bling when it is sultry hot. You are sure to get many compliments, but after sometime you will sense the unease in yourself. Do you want that?
7. Setting up the Mood
Just before your friends arrive, spray a little room freshener in the entire house, light a few candles. This will not only make the place look good, but will also save electricity. If you have arranged for a theme and have asked your friends to dress according to that, then decorate your place a little too, keeping in mind the theme of the night. You can put in some fun cushion covers and curtains too. This time your friends will appreciate your creative side, obviously if you do it in a creative manner.
8. Do Up your Place
So you are hosting the night out while your parents are away? Good. But do you want your friends to come and see what a messy kid you are with your boxers scattered around, the books lying here and there, and the kitchen in a mess? If not, then start doing up your place and put everything back in order before your friends arrive? Put the books on the book shelf back in order; get your clothes inside the closet. If possible, take out the vacuum cleaner and let your place be totally dirt- free. Let them appreciate your cleanliness.
9. Make the Guest List
This should have been the first point, but since health comes first, hence I put it here, right below the health factor. When you are the one organizing the night out at your place, you definitely know who the ones you want at your party are. Don’t let it be a charitable event where friends and friends of friends come along. NO. Make the guest list, keep it short and send out personal invitations to everybody. You want only your close friends at night.
10. Take Ample Rest throughout the Day
You surely do not want to have puffy eyes or dark circles under your eyes on a night out, that too due to lack of rest, do you? No way. So make sure you plan the night out on weekends and throughout the day you do nothing but sleep, sleep and sleep. I am sure all of you know that the human body functions in such a way that it needs at least eight hours of sleep daily. So do not ignore the fact and make sure you have ample amount of sleep for the whole day. Let nothing disturb you. When you get up, you are all geared up for the night out. Better, pass on the advice to the rest of your friends as well.
