It’s a well known fact that I am a big fan of a girls night in. Who wouldn’t love a chilled out night eating your body weight in junk food and watching girly films with a good gossip? It may be a more relaxed night, but still takes a decent bit of planning, so I thought I would share a few things that I would have for my perfect girls night in.
Food & Drink
Arguably one of the most important elements of a night in, especially for my friends… Before my friends come round I usually stock up on lots of popcorn and chocolate as well as baking a few treats – one of my favourites being this Rocky Road which always goes down a treat.
Drinks wise, it’s usually just soft drinks, but lately I’ve been on the quest to find my perfect cocktail and so have been perusing Pinterest in hope of finding it there. This recipe for Smashed Raspberry Lemonade by A Beautiful Mess sounds particularly yummy!
Our girls nights tend to focus around movies, usually very cliché chick flicks like Angus, Thongs & Perfect Snogging but occasionally something a bit scarier such as The Last Exorcism or Paranormal Activity. For my perfect night with the girls I would have to go for The Rocky Horror Picture Show, it is basically what brought us together so it only seems right that it gets a watch!
If I’m just having a night in by myself, I love something cheesy like Rock Of Ages or Katy Perry: Part Of Me, but you can never go wrong with anything starring Johnny Depp.
The right playlist makes the night. This survey by Ladbrokes Bingo showed that almost 40% of participants agreed that choosing their own music was one of the main appeals of a night in. We love a good sing along, so a girls night isn’t really complete without some classic tunes like Shania Twain, Taylor Swift and Beyonce.
So that’s just a few of the things that make my girls nights in so much fun, how would your perfect night go? Any recipes or fun activities you think I’d enjoy? Please share!
