Your close group of girlfriends is one of your most important relationships. It’s basically like choosing your own set of sisters. However, it seems as though when we are in our teenage and college years, there was more time to spend with girlfriends.
As an adult, careers, relocations, serious relationships, marriages, or children can easily cause these relationships to be less tight-knit. Even through our busy lives, it is imperative to set aside at least one “girls only day” a month. An amazing way to make amazing memories without even stepping out is planning a “Girls’ Night In” rather than a “Girls’ Night Out”. This way, there is no pressure of leaving the house, sending hours getting ready, and dealing with the frustrating crowd. You and your best friends can simply focus on quality time spent with one another. Here are some tips to make your “Girls’ Night In” a success.
MAKE IT A STAYCATION, ORDER & EAT IN
After spending a girls’ day of shopping, eating, and bonding, turn in for the night at the best hotels in your very own city. Treat yourselves and take full advantages of the hotels room services to make your grown-up sleepover top-notch.
SPA IT UP
Hire a masseuse to come in. Apps like SOOTHE and ZEEL and get pampered at home. Take advantage of your hotel’s services or bond with some Pinterest DIY treatments. Discover some of the best skin, nail, and hair care that everyone can add to their beauty regimen.
INDULGE IN THE 4 M’s
Music, Magazines, Movies, and Macaroons. A girls’ night in is the place where you can forget about being healthy. If you’re at a hotel, room service is always a the best option. You can also put that Pinterest board to use and discover the most unique food and cocktail recipes. If you’d rather keep it simple, Seamless, Caviar, and Munchery are some of the most efficient mobile apps for food delivery needs.
CREATE A MINI PHOTOSHOOT
Have each girl bring her most fabulous clothing items or go vintage shopping, and create a cute and Instagrammable mini-shoot. Print vintage polaroids for a keepsake.
CREATE A TRAVEL PINTEREST BOARD
A few weeks before the main event, create a private “Girls Night In” Pinterest that each friend can collaborate. This can be recipes, activities, natural beauty treatments, or DIY projects.
TEACH EACH OTHER SOMETHING NEW
For example, everyone can talk about new internet tools or apps that each person swears by. Try this with beauty regimens, new music, and even recipes. Learning and even admiring something new, as a whole, can draw the group even closer together.
