Friday Freedom

I never wanted to have a blog, like how the girls on "Unexpected" never wanted a kid (and yes, I do love TLC). It just happened. I don't know what I'm doing, or why I'm doing it. This isn't something as brilliant as Man Repeller or as aesthetically-perfect as your average Ingrid Goes West influencer's tips of the day. This is just me writing to write, with a few rants thrown in (this is one of them). 

New York is the best place in the world. That is not a hyperbole; that is a fact. There is so much here-- so many interesting people and so much inspiration, fashion or otherwise. The F Files encompasses all of this.

I won't post consistently; I'll post when I have time. Our Instagram account is a curated collection of where I find inspiration, mainly from professional photos that I did not spend hours styling and lighting like the people who posted them did. I don't have time for that, but I still appreciate the product. The F Files is my outlet instead. 

There will be pop culture references, drunken rants, interviews with strangers, brand profiles, chronicles of food binges, friendly advice, weekend adventures, and hopefully, some fun. The F Files is utter freedom, and I embrace it.

This blog is dedicated to those who read it. It's an acquired taste. You know who you are. 

In the words of Miranda Priestly, that is all. 

#FridayFun: How to Get Multiple Guys in One Night (And Why You Should)

Your time is precious. From your kickass job to binge watching "The Handmaid's Tale," you barely have time to swipe on Tinder. So when you do go out, why limit one night to one guy?

Think about it: it takes 30 minutes to get ready, put on makeup, wear an uncomfortable bra and tight skirt. Get the most out of it. So here's your guide to stacking multiple dates in one night. And no, do not feel guilty. This is your night — and think of all the free food!

Start with happy hour drinks – Guy #1, 5-6pm

It's easy, it's fun, it's cheap in case the guy's a jerk and doesn't offer to pay. Between the hours of 5 and 7pm usually, you naturally are confined to a deadline. Spend maybe an hour there, tops. If you don't like him, you have an easy excuse to leave—you have dinner plans with a client. If you do like him, you leave a little mystery until your next date. Um, with him.

Dinner – Guy #3, 8pm-10pm

Save this one for your first impression favorite man. Or the one who can afford to buy you a nice steak and a bottle of wine. Regardless, make sure to redo your lipstick in case the other two turned out well (hey, no one said you can't have a little fun in between!). Allocate more time here since you are actually consuming food.

Dessert – Guy #4, 10:30pm-11:30pm

And finally, hustle to dessert with the final dude of the evening. Get something light like ice cream, but feel free to indulge yourself — you've had a busy day.

And there you have it: 1 night, 4 guys. And hopefully one of them will turn out be worth seeing again. Maybe for the whole night this time.
