Galentines Night In (Pt. I): Setting Up The Perfect Pamper Night

When the whole squad are QUEEEENS

So we've covered a girls night out, but what if you're spending February 13th in with the girls? 
First up, I've written a guide on how to host the perfect chilled-out night with your faves. 
Obviously you've got to set the scene before you start getting out the pampering products...



1. Cosiness!
Okay so you don't have to go in this hard, this is just some serious Pinterest inspo. But if you have got time, pull down all your comfy bedding and blankets, light loads of candles and drape around some fairy lights (if you have some). It honestly makes such a difference having a relaxing, cosy vibes! Throw on some comfy pyjamas too - I love love love this Super Soft Pink Twosie from Asos (£28).



2. Food

Whether you're ordering in, or spending some time making your own treats - you have to have a huge amount of food on offer when all the girls unite. Dominos, Chinese and Indian are always winners. BUT if you want to get creative, check out our Pinterest board of insane Galentines snacks and drinks (including a Red Velvet Hot Chocolate and Heart Shaped Churros!!!)



3. Movies 

Obviously, you have to watch a chick-flick if you're having an evening with your pals! 

I've called in two of my favourite people, who just happen to be film buffs, to give their top film picks for a perfect girls night in...


Tilly & Ellie

So apart from the obvious two: Clueless & Mean Girls - what are the best movies for a girls night in?


TILLY

SMIINK - Tilly
FYI: Tilly studies English Language & Linguistics at the University of Leeds. You'll find her writing about the latest beauty trends on her website smiink.com

Her top films for a girls night in are:
1. Almost Famous 
2. Wild Child 
3. Love Actually
4. John Tucker Must Die 


ELLIE 
FYI: Ellie studies Pharmacy at the University of Portsmouth. You'll find her heavy drinking, or watching Greys Anatomy (or both)! 

Her favourite movies for a pamper evening are:
1. Legally Blonde
2. Bridget Jones' Diary
3. Brides Maids
4. Bring It On



4. Music 

If you're anything like my friends, you'll plan to watch a film and then talk over the whole movie! In that case, if music is more your thing when you're having a night in, then you need this mix of classics we can all sing along to! This playlist combines all the best empowering kick-ass tracks we all know & love. 
Get yo Beyonce on!




So that's how I get all set up for the girls to come over! 
Stay tuned for Pt. II in a few days, where I'll be talking about all the products I love to use during a pamper session to refresh my skin, nails & hair!


How do you prepare for a long-awaited night in with your friends? Let me know!
