Social gatherings can be pretty tough. The pressures to be cool and fit in are always at an all-time high in these sort of situations.

1.) "Is my hair OK?"
2.) "I hope I don't look like I'm trying too hard in this dress!"
3.) "Let me just pretend to be busy on my phone." 

These are regular thoughts that go through all of our heads. BUT I'M HERE TO HELP YOU GUYS!!! as usual :) Here are my top three tips on how not to look like the awkward sore thumb out of the group at a social gathering.

1.) Remember, not everyone's paying attention to you.

Relax!! Sometimes not all eyes are on you, and it's fine to just relax and be in the moment. YOU over analyze your every move,not everyone else. Everyone else is just there to mingle and have a good time , you should too.

2.) Arrive with a crazy friend.

Bring along that fearless friend who isn't afraid to dance on the pool table like a maniac!! I'm very reserved and shy but I have a friend who is very confident and boisterous. Because she's genuinely that way, she brings those qualities out in me. When I'm with her I completely forget about everything and my mind is focused on just having fun and meeting and reciprocating her level of excitement and energy . If it works for me, it'll definitely work for you.

3.) Do whatever it takes to feel confident.

Make up for what you think you "lack" by putting extra effort in your other fabulous departments!! Whatever social skills you lack make up for it in other ways. If your feeling confident, you feel comfortable. Spend extra time curling your hair to get the perfect head of voluminous curls , or go out on a limb and wear the extra bright red lipstick that makes you feel like a sexy vixen. DO WHATEVER IT TAKES TO FEEL LIKE THE BEST YOU!

So there you have it, my top 3 tips on how not to be awkward in social settings. Which one of these tips works for you the most? Comment down below :)
