100 Girly Things To Do: Week One

Hello Lovelies!

Now that the 100 Things That Make Me Happy Tag is done... It's time for a new one! The wonderful Melanie, from Beauty Meets Kawaii and I have thought up of a fun tag that we could do to replace it, and after a few e-mails back and forth, the 100 Girly Things To Do Tag was born! We're hoping that it will catch on, so please do it! It should be really fun! Basically, the concept is simple, every week, for 10 weeks, post 10 girly things to do. At the end, you're left with a list of 100 girly things to do! Perfect for when you have a day to yourself and you're not sure what to do with it! =)

1. Get dolled up
Even if it's for no reason at all, getting all dolled up is fun! Do your makeup, your hair, pick out a cute outfit... and go do the groceries? Whatever you end up doing, your mood will surely be lifted!

2. Give yourself a manicure and pedicure
Nothing looks prettier than perfectly done finger tips and colorful toes! Even if your feet are covered with socks, knowing you've got a pretty shade under there will make you happy!

3. Doing your hair
Sure it's a lot easier to just brush and go, but try to give yourself a little more time in the morning to do something with your hair. The internet and magazines are full of fun hairstyle ideas for you to try!

4. Have an at-home spa day
Whether by yourself or with a few girlfriends, break out the bath salts, face & hair masks, body creams, etc, and relax! Nothing finishes up your week better than saving a bit of time on the weekend to indulge in a little bit of pampering!

5. Gossip
We can't help it, it's in our nature! Try to keep it healthy (no bitching!), and/or pick up a tabloid magazing for some harmless bit of gossip!

6. Have a chick flick marathon
Get together with a few of your girlfriends and have an afternoon filled with chick flick after chickflick! Make sure to include snacks, cocktails, lots of cushions and scented candles! No boys allowed!

7. Shopping
This one's a no brainer. Either by yourself or with a few friends, hit the mall! Even if you're just window shopping, you'll be guaranteed to have some fun! They call it retail therapy for a reason you know!

8. Sign up for a dance class/lessons
What a great way to have fun! Even if it's just Zumba at your local gym, you'll feel great!

9. Get a spray tan
Practice safe sun! No one wants wrinkles and sun damage, but a tan does look so pretty! Call around for a salon that offers spray tanning, and book an appointment!

10. Make a girly playlist on your iPod
Doing most of the above mentioned girly things requires a soundtrack! Upload a bunch of girly songs onto your ipod or computer! Think Madonna - Material Girl, Christina Aguilera - Beautiful, Beyoncé - Diva, Lady Gaga - Just Dance, and of course, Cindy Lauper - Girls Just Wanna Have Fun! The list goes on!

That's it for week one! If you are doing this tag too, post a link to your blog in the comments so that I can go check it out! =)

11. Go find a husband!

12. Watch LMN for 10 hours straight!

13. Give a super girly blowjob!

14. Have your period! There's nothing more girly than being doubled over with abdominal pain and bleeding out your vagina!

15. Or, alternatively, pop out some babies! But you better find you a husband first, children born out of wedlock are SO not girly.

16. Bake cookies!

17. "Read" some totally girly magazines like Seventeen or Good Housekeeping! Leave the math, science, literature, business, politics, etc. to the men!

18. Speaking of men, aren't you married yet? Better get on it girly girl!

19. Go kill yourself.
