A Girl's Guide to LA's Carmaggedon
1 - First of all, stop by the grocery store before the weekend to stock up on food and water because even getting in your car to go to the store means you might never get back home. Plus, dehydration is not so pretty on the skin.
2 - While you're at the store, pick up a blow up kiddy pool for some sunbathing in your backyard. If you don't have a backyard, then set up shop on the sidewalk. A girl can't be pale during the summer.
3 - Reorganize your closet and start putting together a Goodwill pile of clothes (but don't even think about dropping anything off at Goodwill until after the weekend!). This project alone will take up several hours.
4 - Give yourself an at-home spa day. Save some money and do your own mani/pedi, facial, and/or a conditioning hair treatment.
5 - Stock up on classic girly movies. You already know the lines by heart to Clueless, Pretty Woman, Pretty in Pink, Can't Buy Me Love, Sex and the City (movies and reruns), etc.
6 - Get your retail therapy fix by doing a little online shopping on Net-a-Porter, Boutiques.com, or Shopbop.com.
7 - Bake a pie or cake. I always say that I want to get better at baking, but I never have time to do it. This is the perfect time to sharpen your baking skills or if you're already a pastry chef try a new recipe.
Brace yourself, it's gonna be a LONG weekend.
