I have always been the girl who was last to know the latest trends or last to see all the cool movies but now the proof is in the pudding: it’s all about faking it!
That's all there is to it! Just fake that you actually know what is going on! For example:
Whenever I go to a party and I don’t know anyone I get really nervous about turning up on my own. This is kinda geeky BUT to save myself from humiliation I just turn up and head straight to the kitchen, grab out two cups and pour two drinks! Then I take those two drinks and walk around the party as if searching for my fellow friend.
I continue to do this until I have found at least one person to talk to. This works in my favour for two great reasons:
1) People never look at me as if I’m the loner who turned up with no mates
2) Even if I find someone before I've even finished pouring the drinks, I just offer one to them and this makes me look generous, helpful and good!
Try this at the next party you go to - I promise you, it never fails!
Love, Erin x
