1. Find some lonesome, ME time
So your friends went on a gorgeous trip to Ibiza, made love to strangers and flood your Instagram feed with turquoise water featuring their butts in red bikinis. Ok, so what? First of all, hangovers are even more brutal when on vacation (Ibiza, duh) and honestly, that last pizza crust with garlic cream cheese is worth (and much more tempting) then every tight butt in the world all together. This is your chance to finally spend some quality time on the creature you love the most (yourself, or your cat, it depends) and do the things you never had time for. Read young adult fiction with no one telling you are too old for that shit (Hunger Games anyone?), and alas re-watch the most artificial, racist, anti-feminist, heartbreak infused, fake friendship series (yes, sex and the city, that will be you). Wear the same t-shirt for more than a couple of days (including sleep, grocery store, and takeaway coffee trips). Drink wine out the bottle. Laugh, cry and enjoy life by yourself.
2. Pizza pie, tacos, pizza pie
Stop weighing yourself. Summer season is almost over so if dieting peacefully passed you by, rejoice! You got a year ahead to make that body of yours to look as gorgeous as angel Candice herself! We vote cheat month until fall, you only live once after all.
3. Trade Netflix for a book
Of course the new series of GOT sound just as tempting as a glass of cool prosecco after a hard day of work. But how else are you going to raise your smarts and impress your boss while casually conversing over a fancy cup of coffee? Here is a list of pure entertainment concurrently intelligent reads:
1. Wine Bar Theory by David Gilberstone
2. The Subtle Art Of Not Giving A F*ck by Mark Manson
3. #GirlBoss by Sophia Amoruso
4. Get Over Your Damn Self by Romi Neustadt
5. Creative Confidence by Tom & David Kelley
