Absolutely Fabulous Life Lessons

Last week, the team behind Absolutely Fabulous announced the release date for the Absolutely Fabulous movie. It’ll be hitting our screens in the UK on 1 July 2016. I’m way too excited. I loved the TV series, and can still quote rather a lot of it. So in honour of the announcement, I thought I’d share some life lessons (not always good ones…) we probably all learned from Eddie and Patsy.

Fashion is actually pretty bloody important

Lacroix

You’d better know your Stellas from your Viviennes. In the Edina Monsoon School of Fashion, we learn that as long you’re draped in labels, you’ll always look great. (Disclaimer: Follow this one at your own risk of looking insane).

Why save Champagne for special occasions when it can be enjoyed any time?

There’s no point saving things for best, is there? Just enjoy things while you can, including the champers.

A sharp comeback is important to have on hand at all times.

Witty Comebacks

Patsy is Queen of the icy response, and we love her for it. It’s important to be able to defend yourself.

Ignore the haters.

judging

They’re only trying to cramp your style and ruin all the fun anyway.

Believe in yourself and your own coolness.

self-belief

If you believe it hard enough, so will everyone else.

Thinking about going on a diet is basically the same as actually going on one.

thin

The same rule applies to exercise.

It’s the thought that counts, right?

Early mornings are evil.

early

Avoid them whenever possible.

Alcohol will punish you.

It’s all fun and games until the morning after.

Most important of all though, is a best friend just as mad as you are.

Anyone else a little over-excited that this is happening? The cameos they’ve been announcing are insane. Naturally Emma Bunton will appear, but they’ve also got Jerry Hall, Joan Collins, Chris Colfer, Barry Humphries…

Now, sweetie darlings, let’s crack open the Bolly and celebrate.
