The Perfect Girls Night In?

I love a good girls night in. As a student it's pretty unexpected but I'm not going to lie, it's my total guilty pleasure. I love a good night out, but nothing beats that relaxing night in with the girls and waking up feeling totally relaxed and WITHOUT a hangover. Total bonus right? 

A survey by Ladbrokes Bingo showed that 70% of women prefer a girls night in* and I am not surprised in the slightest. My night in's are usually pretty impromptu because I live with 2 of my girlfriends, which probably means that they happen a little more often than they would if we planned them. Your probably wondering what my perfect girls night in would be? Well it changes often but the general recipe stays the same. BEAUTY... all the way.

The Beauty Treats

I think by now we will all know that I'm a little obsessed when it comes to beauty and what girls night would be complete with out some of it (and by some, I totally mean a lot). Skincare is a must; a good cleanse probably with my beloved Liz Earle Cleanse and Polish and then on to the face masks. My favourite at the minute has got to be the Aesop Parsley Seed Cleansing Masque, but I am partial to a little bit of a change an with the winter coming around I absolutely love using the Origins Drink Up Intensive Mask as it's super hydrating and smells amazing!  

If we're really treating ourselves we will go for a hair treatment. I'm loving the Phillip Kingsley Elasticizer at the moment, a great pre-shampoo treatment. I would usually opt to put this on at the end of the evening while we're still chatting! 

Nails, nails, nails, nails! Could I be any more excited? With my extensive collection, we love to have a good rumble in my polish draw to discover a few shades! My picks today were some beautiful purples: Kolor Kubes in Berry Burst*, Topshop's Adrenalin and Jacava's Blackberry Fool*. If we're a bit stuck for time I love using Broadway Nails imPress nails* - press on nails that apply so easily. There is an amazing shade range and they last a super long time. I am super impressed by them after giving them a couple of goes. Usually a super short nail kinda girl but these have totally converted me. Perfect for the lazy beauty addict... The Kiss Nail Wraps* work just as well - I love using these on the accent finger on top of the imPress nails, easy application too!

The Entertainment

A good movie usually works best, perhaps a good ol' chick flick? I remember cracking out Mean Girls in one of our latest evenings. That film NEVER gets old. If we can't find a film we fancy then we'll usually just stick to watching the TV or browsing on the net. Or if all else fails we will talk...and talk... and talk... and talk. We're girls, we're allowed right?

The Food & Drinks

Potentially one of the most vital parts of a girls night in, very close to the beauty (and that's coming from a total beauty addict). We love a good glass of wine, White Zinfandel is my favourite or perhaps a cocktail. But if we're perhaps a little hungover from the night before we love to go for a cup of tea or a hot chocolate. Perfect to cuddle up with a blanket while watching a film. 

Snacks come next. We love a pizza just like the next man but if that's not what we go for... Popcorn is always there and Dina is Queen at making it! Sweet, Butter Salt, Salt & Pepper, Nutella... Whatever flavour you want, you name it - she can do it! Mmmm, popcorn. 

I love a good girls night and honestly, all this writing about it has made me super excited for the next. When are we having one girls? 

Would love to know what are your top tips for the perfect girls night in!
