NYE FOMO: 9 Thoughts Everyone Has On New Year’s Eve

New Year’s Eve: one of the most anticipated (and chaotic) nights of the year. If you didn’t start assembling HUGE EXCITING PLANS waaaay back in October, you’re probably in a state of panic right about now – with the annual NYE fear-of-missing-out beginning to creep in…

Take a peek below at the 9 thoughts everyone has on New Year’s Eve – and take comfort that you’re not the only one with NYE FOMO…

“So…everyone’s made plans already?”

1

That moment when you realise the majority of your squad already have family/boyfriend/other friend commitments, and you’ve got nada. Panic stations: activated.

 

“I’m SURE we’ll be able to get a table!”

2

You’ve gathered a team of stragglers together, and you’re a-bit-too-optimistic at your chances of successfully booking a table anywhere half decent. After ringing round the majority of restaurants and bars in your local area – to no avail – you’re becoming a tad hysterical.

“I should probably buy several outfits, just in case.”

3

Because we all need options, right?

 

“Why is no-one replying to my Whatsapp message?”

4

You need to confirm numbers to the club by 5pm, and so far the group WhatsApp is remaining deathly silent. You’ve sent the monkey emoji, a firm-but-fair reminder message, and you’re now contemplating sending the angry face emoji too – just to make a point.

 

“All my friends will definitely pay me on time for the deposit. Maybe.”

5

“Can I just buy you some champagne when we’re out?”

“What if I’m in the bathroom when it hits midnight?”

6

A genuine concern. That lipstick isn’t going to apply itself…

 

“What if I don’t have a kiss when it hits midnight?”

7

Should you pick someone now? What if you’re stuck with that weird guy from last year? Let’s not have a repeat of that, please…

 

“What if I’ve gone home when it hits midnight?”

8

Given you’re usually tucked up in jim-jams by 10pm most evenings, chances of being able to stay awake until midnight are seeming slim. Maybe you can just have a snooze over there…

 

“Maybe I should just stay in…”

9

This is all becoming far too stressful, and a night in with a box of Milk Tray and Friends reruns is beginning to sound much more appealing. Eek…

Still stressing? Don’t panic – if there’s one thing MyBag can help with, it’s a killer clutch to ensure all eyes are on you. Take a look at our full selection here, or shop our favourites below…
