With so many fantastic events and locations spread out all over the city it can be difficult to smoothly navigate this fashionably fabulous terrain.

 I put together a few tips to make your FNO a night to remember:

1. Plan it out- note the key times events will be happening at each location and plan accordingly, narrow down the locations you want to visit.  The biggest mistake is to try to attend Everything- you wont be able to enjoy the festivities if you are rushing around.

2. Dress chic but comfortably-layers of spanx or too high of heels can make for an uncomfortable and short lived evening.

3. Bring backup- in case your fabulous heels that you HAD to wear- despite my advice in #2-  start to hurt have a pair of foldable flats in your handbag!

4. Less is more-pace yourself on the food and bubbly.  You don’t want to over-stuff yourself or drink too much, yes I know its free but you have ALOT of stops to make.  Think of it as a marathon NOT a sprint.

5. Power Up-take a phone charger with you- you will be tweeting, instagraming, facebook posting, etc. all night and those phone batteries wear down fast!

6. Freeze Frame-capture the moment by taking photos and posting them!  You never know who you may see!

7. Social Media- tweet and post where you are and where the best parties are!  This could help friends and followers who are running short on time make decisions on where to go! Don’t forget to #FNO.
