If you want to, you can turn around these comments in your mind to make them something positive for yourself: You get a point/star/tick mark/check for every criticism she lobs at you. Once you get to, say, 10, you get to buy yourself a magazine/tube of lipstick/bottle of nail polish. Or you can make it a larger goal, like for every 50 you get a pair of shoes or a manicure or something. I did this once when there was a woman I found annoying in a meeting I was in. I spent the morning with my head about to explode, went to lunch, came up with this system, and WANTED her to do the annoying thing in the afternoon session. I got a star every time she did it, 10 stars = 1 bottle of nail polish. I got THREE bottles of nail polish out of that afternoon. You can't necessarily change your friend's behavior, but you CAN change how it affects you.
