Long time readers will understand if I said I had to skim ‘Dummy’s Guide to: Partying and Generally Having a Jolly Good Time with Friends Without Involving a LAN Cable or Pizza Pockets’ before shooting this feature. This is all foreign territory, this 1) having this many friends at one go and 2) being out after 8PM – latter not because of stellar home education (‘a lady should not be seen mingling in the darkness’ – said mum) but because I believe I’m just not programmed to function in such interactive settings, someone somewhere just forgot to install that patch for me.

Dress – Tata Naka.

Man, was I wrong. Regardless of inherent awkwardness, what matters are the people you are with, and how many somersaults you can do in your full gown before gold glitter gets into every crevice of your body. GLITTER DOES NOT COME OFF, PEOPLE. Not sure how I learn this at age 28. With the help of Sarah, the prettiest girl in the world I’m sure you’ll agree, and my trusty editorial partner Brian, the forever adventurist & babe-magnet, we celebrated the NOW, with Moët et Chandon.

It’s soon time for the New Year, New Me bullshit, but before that, remember to Open the Now with the people you love most, and don’t forget to let live a little, engage in some good-hearted tomfoolery!

And of course, drink responsibly.
