If the husband has gone out for the evening and you want to do something too, or you just want a chilled out evening with your friends, having a girl’s night in can be the answer. A perfect opportunity for a chinwag, getting the girls round with your favourite bottle of vino, a feel good romcom and some of your favourite pampering products will leave you all feeling refreshed, relaxed and up to date with the latest gossip.
A cheap alternative to a night on the town, having the girls round can be even more fun than trying to socialise in a loud and busy bar. Ask all your buddies to bring a different product – a face mask, some moisturisers or a bottle of their favourite nail varnish shade – change into your slacks and chill out with a drink and a bowl of popcorn and enjoy an excuse to be girly.
Whether it’s an excuse to celebrate your BFF’s birthday or a new promotion at work, us girls always deserve a pampering evening. Take the weight off your feet and take some steps to feeling rejuvenated.
For the DIY approach, research your skin types and find some products that would be suitable for each of you. If you each bought something different, it wouldn’t cost a lot and would be a perfect opportunity to give your skin a new lease of life.
Look into whether there are local beauty therapists who, for a fee, would be willing to pop along and offer a manicure to make your nails look fantastic. Rid the tension from your muscles – ask a therapist to get to work on any troublesome knots.
Skin care is important to everybody to help keep us looking young. Reduce the signs of ageing and refine your pores with a facial scrub. Grab a mud pack for each of you and all look ridiculous together. If you’re useless at dying your own hair, use the opportunity to rope your mates into helping make it less patchy. Just try not spilling any onto your bathroom suite.
Bring along a batch of girly magazines for inspiration, chuck on Dirty Dancing and sing along like nobody’s watching. Talk about the guys in your life and get advice on whatever may be troubling you. No matter what you decide to include in your girls night in, you’ll be sure to come away with a smile on your face and feeling revitalised.
