(Plus a few more!)


Something every girl should know how to do is enjoy being a girl.  For me that usually means taking a vacation from the drudgery of everyday life, skipping out and going on a luxury shopping trip then ending the day with martinis with my besties!

I think most women are born with the shopping gene, but for those of you who have had it stomped on - put your stilettos on and do some stomping back! There's nothing that calms the emotions, soothes the ego and unruffles feathers more than a full day of throwing caution to the wind, spending a ton of money on yourself then enjoying a few martinis with your best friends! Well, almost nothing, but we're talking "Girls Night Out" here.....

I don't know why, but ordering your own limo, getting something frivolous for yourself, having a couple of martinis, filling shopping bags with stuff you don't need and maybe even taking in a romantic comedy along the way all combine to put a smile on any girls face!

So here's my list - in order and with tongue firmly in cheek - of how to fully utilize "Enjoy Being A Girl Day" by spending money and pampering yourself. Feel free to go it alone or share with your girlfriends:

First, you have to order up your own limo and driver for the day. Parking is a pain and alcohol is in the itinerary! One day of a limo rental is a lot less expensive than a DUI, way more fun and seriously more convenient for the schedule.

Is your limo here with your very young and attractive wannabe actor/chauffeur yet? Good. Let's start our "Enjoy Being A Girl" Shopathon!:
  • You'll want to look good today, so, after a stop for a quick mocha latte, head right to the spa for a hair styling, some war paint and a mani-pedi. A few hours of pampering and you're done!  Now, you're looking good and no witch shop girl at any chi-chi boutique would dare snub you!
  • It's probably around lunchtime now so head off to your favorite bistro for a wonderful gourmet salad and a lovely Bellini Martini. Take a teeny little detour first to your favorite jewelry store and buy yourself something sparkly. Bling is always a "Enjoy Being A Girl" must.
  • Now that you're refreshed and properly warm and fuzzy from your Bellini (and the little bit of bling you just bought.), it's time for the serious shopping! Gird your Prada bag, hoist your credit cards and Charge!
  • The shopping spree must buys are: One article of clothing that is not practical, One pair of divine shoes that make your legs look stupendous, a box of very expensive chocolates, something goofy that makes you laugh and a little gift for your BFF. These are mandatory purchases - everything else is gratis!
  • BTW, You are a Goddess! You do not shop in malls! Go to the ritzy part of town and hit the snooty, upscale boutiques! Remember to keep your nose highly elevated and drawl this often, "oh, that's just too Paris Hilton for me!" then put it back like it's smelly trash, this will put the witchy shop girls in their place!
  • Are your shopping bags full yet? Okay, then now it's time to take a little break and see a movie or enjoy a nice twelve dollar fruit smoothie with some rum in it! Ah, wasn't that a good break?
  • Oh, look! It's time to pretend shop for cars! Get yourself right over to the foreign car dealer and saunter around the Ferraris and Aston Martins like you just can't make up your mind. If you've sauntered right and your stilettos look like Jimmy Choos, you'll hook a salesman and maybe score a test drive! At the end of the test drive, when the salesman starts getting pushy tell him to give you a card and you'll have your business manager call him, then saunter back on out of the dealership to your waiting limo.
  • You are now into the solid Cocktail Hour so head yourself (and any BFFs) right over to the hippest little martini bar in town and order up a few Girl's Night Out Martinis. A nice plate of appetizers would be a perfect way to deal with that peckish feeling in your tummy and let you have just one more little 'tini before heading home.
  • Wait, did we get everything? Sexy shoes, rich and calorie laden chocolates, jewelry, some trinkets and gifts? Uh-oh, what about lingerie?? We forgot the lingerie and no "Enjoy Being A Girl Day" is complete without one or two little strips of intimate-attire silk!  Back tracking takes energy so grab a Drunk on Espresso Martini for a little boost and head over to Victoria's Secret before they close!
  • Whew. Disaster averted. You have gotten yourself beautified, completed the shopping mission objectives, enjoyed cocktails and cuisine, a few laughs and you enjoyed "Being A Girl" in style!
  • Back in the limo? Great, now relax, kick off those skyscraper pumps, riffle through all your booty and enjoy the quiet of the limo on the way home while you sip a nice Dessert Martini and savor your "Enjoy Being A Girl Day" memories. Mission Accomplished!
