I'm on a cleanse. Unless this cocktail party is at a gallery or museum, there are a million other things you can talk about. Plus, be honest -- you have no idea what the assorted artwork represents in this room.

Get your life right, girl. Even if it happened just before you left the house to come to the party, keep it to yourself. This is a chance for you to put your best foot forward and engage positively with other professionals.

Let people remember you for your positive energy and not leave saying, "Why did she talk about how much she hates the weather so much?

Unless you were invited to Jennifer Aniston and Justin Theroux's wedding, there should be little reason to chat about it. Celebrities are just people. Guess what: You're a person too! Talk about the things you are interested in, and refrain from all conversations that start with, "How do you think William and Kate should dress the royal babies?

Even if you're 99 percent certain you've found a group of like-minded individuals, these two topics should be off-limits at a cocktail party. Get to know people for their content of character, and not who they are voting for. Cold-brew coffee tricks. Favorite books. DIY home projects.
