Get the perfect ingredients for a Girls Night In!
Here at Girls Day Out we are all about having fun! We love a good night on the town with our luscious lashes, perfect tan, killer heels, flawless foundation and dazzling dresses. But we also love a good night in with our besties, curled up in front of the telly with our PJs on, fav Netflix series at the ready and snacks galore. So we thought we would give you ladies a treat with some tips on having the perfect night in with the girls!
Step 1:Make the perfect cocktail to get the night started!
Who doesn't love a classy cocktail after the hard working week? We heart the Lambrini Love Cocktail, and good news ladies its super simple to make! All you need is White Rum, Grenadine, Lambrini Very Cherry and a bottle of Lambrini So Strawberry (our fav). Begin with a adding shot of White Rum to your glass combined with a dash of Grenadine. Top up with equal parts of Lambrini So Strawberry and Lambrini Very Cherry in a martini glass, garnished with a cherry. Perfection! For those who are after an alcohol free night why not make yourself a mocktail instead? You could make a delicious Metropolitan Raspberry Iced Tea. All you need is Cranberry and Raspberry Tea, Lemon juice, Sugar Syrup, Raspberry's, Mint. Place in a Sling Glass, shake and pour and you've got yourself the perfect non-alcoholic beverage!
Step 2:More sure you have an unlimited supply of snacks and treats
Let's face it, a Girls Night in wouldn't be complete without some tasty treats! There is nothing better than settling down with a good film, a popular Netflix series and an unlimited supply of snacks for you and your best friends! Here at Girls Day Out we've been munching our way through the Coco Chocolatier range and have to say the Hazelnut and Isle of Skye Sea Salt is our absolute fav! The perfect treat for a girly night in! You could also have a vintage tea delivered to your home with Vintage Kitchen Teas including a selection of finger sandwiches, freshly made scones and delicious home-baked cakes and pastries, washed down with high quality Tea pigs and served on beautiful vintage china. Bliss. And for the ultimate feast why not invest in your very own Original Pizza Maker which lets you have your very own personalized, pizza party! Every girl can have her favourite slice of homemade pizza, the perfect comfort food for a night in with the girls!
Step 3:Have a Pinterest browsing session for future girl getaways!
There's nothing better than creating an inspiring mood board to give you ideas for the perfect holiday getaway. And Pinterest is the ultimate tool for you girls to really let your creativity flow and plan the perfect trip! For all you ladies who love technology, and especially heart your I-Pads have you heard of the iBeani? The iBeani tablet bean bag stand holds your tablet in place so you don't have to use both hands at the same time! Super handy for browsing with the girls, so you can all decide where to jet set next! We love our Owl iBeani, it's super handy for those Monday morning meetings.
Step 4:Get those perfect curls
Let your hair down amongst friends with a set of Sleep-In Rollers which you can wear during the evenings, perfect for a girly sleep over! Prep the hair whilst watching a movie or enjoying cocktails and wake up with big bouncy hair! Sleep in rollers have been used by the likes of Ellie Goulding, Cheryl Cole, Kim Kardashian, Kylie Jenner, Rochelle Hulmes, Pia Mia, Tamara Ecclestone, TOWIE and many more! Now you and your girls can join the hall of fame!
Step 5:Get your nail swag on with a set of nail wraps
Ladies who doesn't love a statement nail? We're utterly obsessed with the Jamberry nail wraps perfect for a girls night in! Why not try out different wraps and see what designs best suit you! Mix and match and get your nail swag on, adding some glamour to your night. They are super easy to apply and if you need a little help follow this simple guide.
Step 6:Tan like a boss with your besties
Ladies who said you couldn't have summer time all year round? Or at least a healthy glow? We've found a great formula for the perfect tan with the help of Fake Bake, Glove Your Body and Spray Away UK, making sure you're glowing for the Winter months ahead. First things first, get hold of a hydrating self tanning lotion or spray that will absorb deep into the skin for a long lasting bronze tan. We chose to use Beyond Bronze Self-Tan Lotion by Fake Bake. Secondly make sure you have a good quality tanning mitt to avoid streaks and uneven patches (super frustrating!) We've fallen in love with the Glove Your Body Dual Tanning Mitt the new brilliant beauty tool of 2016! And thirdly invest in a good tanning shield, if you choose to use spray tans to ensure you keep mess and stress to a minimum! We love the new Spray Away UK Tanning Shield, it really helps assist you when self tanning with minimal clean up! The best thing is that you can achieve the perfect tan when you've got a good friend to help reach those troublesome areas you can't do on your own.
Step 7:Set the mood with some scented candles or melts
Setting the mood for the evening with the girls is important to ensure you all have the most relaxing time possible! Have you ever tried wax melt pods? We adore the melts over at Candelle & Co. They are becoming a more and more popular way of fragrancing your home, setting the mood for your girly night in. Available in a variety of fragrances and designs, you can display them as as pot pouri or even as ornaments, giving a good 'cold' scent throw, before they are warmed up. Unlike candles that burn with a wick, wax melts are placed in an oil burner that you use for home fragrance oils or aromatherapy oils, and slowly warmed from a tea light or electric heating source. To scent your room, place one melt in your warmer or burner, and light an unscented tealight underneath. There is no need to add any water. You could cut your melts in half to make them smaller if required, and even mix and match your melts to come up with your own scent.
Step 8:Pamper your skin
After a boozy night in without the hangover? Why not pamper your skin with the cocktail inspired Boozi Bodycare range. You could lather your skin with some Cheeky Woo Woo Body wash, treat your hands to some Gin and Tonic Hand cream, or pamper your lips with some French Martini lip balm. The perfect night in with the girls without the dreaded hangover!
Step 9:Get comfy with your gals
It's important you are kitted out with the comfiest clothing when enjoying a good night in among friends, so you can kick back with your favourite treats, watching a classic movie with the best of company. We heart the Dolly Rockin jumpers, perfect for getting toasty in the Winter season. Their classic range is super cute! You and your friends could invest in one each and create the ultimate girl gang for a good night in! And of course we wouldn't leave your feet out, the slipper range from Pretty You London adds the perfect feminine twist, that will put the girly in your night in.
Step 10: Have fun with a Makeup Personality Quiz by Elizabeth Arden

Others may use it to help camouflage minor skin discolorations or blemishes. And some girls simply have fun playing with color, enjoying experimenting with makeup's ability to transform.

And above all have fun! We hope these top ten tips give you the perfect Girls Night In! And for the perfect Girls Day Out head to the Scottish Exhibition and Conference Centre for a fun filled day!
