Girls’ Night In: How to Throw The Ultimate Grown-Up Sleepover
Rise your hand if some of your fondest childhood memories were at a slumber party? From movie marathons and junk food, to girl talk and truth or dare, to staying up late and calling boys, sleepovers were some of the best things about being a kid. When was the last time you had the gals over to do nothing but eat junk, sip champagne and gossip? Today, I’m taking you there, sharing some tips on how to host the perfect girls’ night in and the ultimate grown-up sleepover.
First things first… the food. To keep it simple, you’re probably going to want to order pizza, that’s what we always did as a child, and it allows more time for girl-talk rather than spending extra time in the kitchen. You also need sweet treats. What’s a sleepover without a bellyache? If you’re in the London area, I highly recommend Kookie Krumble by Melissa. She believes that a balanced diet is a cookie in each hand, and I couldn’t agree more. Her sugar cookies are to die for.
Toss all the fashion rules and come in your pjs. Since a sleepover is about bonding, and not a beauty contest, come in your comfiest pajamas. La Vie En Rose, of course, is my go-to when it comes to all things soft and cozy. With their large selection of prints, patterns, styles and colours, you’re sure to find a jammie set that screams your name. All 7 sets that my girlfriends are rocking are all in stock right now and would make the perfect Galentine’s day gift for your girlfriends.
Now that you’re an adult, you can skip the soda and opt for wine. Enjoy a glass of the new XOXO Pinot Grigio Light without breaking any laws. There’s something about popping a bottle of wine that’s a celebration on its own. Love is sweet, and so is wine. A cold, crisp glass of XOXO wine is the perfect alcoholic beverage to celebrate with. Thanks to its peach, golden apple and citrus blend, with only 8% alcohol and less sugar than the original, it pairs beautifully with all your sweet treats.
Don’t forget to capture all your silly and crazy moments with a Fuijifilm instax mini. Iphones and DSLR’s are great, but when do you actually ever get them developed? There’s something incredibly satisfying about seeing your photos instantly. Capture those memories in real-time, print them in seconds and pass them out to your friends as precious keepsakes of the evening. It’s a fun way to capture the evening, while providing mini takeaways for each of your guest.
You’re never to old to have an all-girl slumber party. Although you might not be having pillow fights, or even spending the night, but that doesn’t mean you can’t spend a few hours getting silly with your friends. Be sure to laugh, act crazy, and create memoires that will last a lifetime.
