The scale of work-play has tipped but that’s not to say you should be getting tipsy on your down time. Where should we eat? Who should we date? And what should we drink? Lets drink wine and judge other people?

The hardest part of going out is the logical strategy behind putting your drink down, calling it a night, and going home. If you are bored and find yourself looking at cats on BuzzFeed, go home and listen to John Mayer. Meeting your soul mate will happen when you least expect it like Lactose Intolerance. Last Saturday night, slightly intoxicated, I confused the guy who offered to buy me a drink for Oprah and ranted for a solid 10 minutes. I addressed topics such as how the age of multi-careering, multi-dating, and social-to-do lists has become gut wrenching. How frankly, dating a 25-31 year-old interconnected with the 21st century cyber dating world, is not the kind of man I want to date. It's nothing but the ultimate emblem in the age of narcissism, cultivating an image for instant gratification. I had another sip and told him I am torn between seeking validation and wanting to be authentic and have real conversations. Rant over.

For someone who is socially awkward and speaks little to men, a drink is like a cocktail of charisma, I am practically Obama. Poor guy. I also drink to tolerate others.

Despite alcohol being a stress-reliever and clearly an icebreaker, it is also one of the more detrimental things you can do to your body, your skin, and sometimes your dignity. Writing those words is like being taken back to when Britney and Justin broke up and I would hate to do that to you. Rihanna has said her top beauty tips for healthy skin cutting out alcohol and drinking water when she feels her skin is in need of some TLC. Below are some reasons why drinking red wine might just be your genie in a bottle, and your number one tip for healthy skin and wellbeing (well not quite).

  1. Red wine has slightly less sugar than white; A glass of Organic Pinot Noir for example is a good choice for antioxidants. It can increase levels of good cholesterols and it also has less sulphates.

  2. The compound found in red wine called "flavonoids" can help protect your skin from sun damage. Who said a glass of wine can't be one of the top tips for healthy skin? Online beauty buy: Chantecallie Ultra Sun Protection SPF 50, £76.

  3. Red wine in studies has been shown to slow down the growth of cancer cells.

  4. 'Resveratol’ is the ingredient found in the skin of red grapes which has been found to protect blood vessels. This healthy compound can be bought in supplement form though it is not as potent as a glass of wine.

  5. Moderate wine consumption is better for your health than going stone cold sober. Researchers have found over a 13 year-study those who drank a glass of red wine a day were 30% less likely to be overweight than non-drinkers. Online beauty buy: Balance Me Super Body Toning Oil £20.

  6. 'Polyphenols' is a substance found in red wine, which combats against harmful bacteria.

  7. Numerous studies have found drinking wine can lower the risk of cardiovascular disease.

  8. Red wine has the ability to reduce risk of certain dementias. In one study it was found moderate drinkers were 23% less likely to develop cognitive impairment or Alzheimer's disease and other forms of dementia. The Science Daily reported, "We don't recommend that non-drinkers start drinking".

  9. Research shows red wine protects your muscles in a similar way physical activity does. Multiple studies have shown a glass of wine can help with your heart and muscle health (if you exercise regularly).

Maybe you don’t need to loose if you booze? Or maybe I’m just the worst? Poor man at the bar having listened to me wine and whine about how I have been looking to mirror my own interests in potential suitors; work, glowing skin, protein, cats, squats, John Mayer, work. But one of me is enough. He later said, “so can I take you for a drink?” I suggested tea because it’s hydrating, or a campfire, or dog walking in the countryside. Look, I'm no dating coach. Maybe just give me a large glass of Organic Pinot Nior? Bottoms up.
