"I don't plan on face planting tonight,” Face planting refers to falling on one's face. If someone does not plan on face planting they don't plan on falling on their face/embarrassing themselves or making a big mistake.
In the second sentence slay means to do better than anyone else. It does mean to kill but not physically. It's like to kill the competition/ to win over them. When someone says they are slaying or someone else is slaying it means that they are doing better (killing) then everyone else.
