Did I mention that Kim and I met Andrew W.K. and it was awesome? Lord and Taylor must have been taking note of his party tips, because they threw a good party to celebrate their new look (complete with ladies bedecked in roses, aerialists, pretty ladies , and lots of entertainment). But then again, everything is a party when Andrew W.K. is there. Here are some of my favorite party tips, equally motivational and hilarious, from AWK: PARTY TIP: Be really, really nice and listen to Slayer.PARTY TIP: Make tonight a night you’d normally regret. And then choose NOT to regret it!PARTY TIP: Go look at yourself in the mirror and say, “The rest of today is going to be a seriously kick a** party.”
PARTY TIP: Take yourself to the limit and then realize it’s only a starting point! I believe in you! You will keep going!PARTY TIP: Take a shower wearing sunglasses. It’s way more intense than you’d expect! PARTY TIP: You’re actually even more amazing than you think you are. PARTY TIP: Used at the right time, a fistful of confetti can blow minds.PARTY TIP: Laugh at yourself and make fun of your life. The worst thing to take too seriously is you.PARTY TIP: Think how awesome it would be if you gave someone a surprise pair of socks today!PARTY TIP: You have the right to dress and look any way you want. Anyone who says otherwise is deeply confused about partying.PARTY TIP: You really are a beautiful person – even if you haven’t realized it yet.
 Note: I don’t drink, but he insisted that we hold beers for the picture.

    hahahaha Andrew W.K. is from my hometown. He played water polo in my highschool just a few years before me and got the whole boy's team in trouble for some hazing thing that they did to another kid on the team. Silly Andrew.

  38. Rhianne says: November 18, 201010:45 am

    I love him, we saw him last year and my boyfriend has met him and said he is the nicest guy :)

    Great tips!
