Welcome to The Busy Girl’s Guide, a bi-weekly article where I share my favorite tips, tricks and lifestyle hacked aimed at showing you just how easy it is to add a little style to your every day, busy girl schedules. This week is all about planning the perfect night in. Whether it’s a girls night in with a group of my closest girlfriends, a cozy evening with my husband or simply a taking the evening for myself when Friday evening rolls around there is nothing I crave more than a relaxing night in where I can unwind and decompress from the busy workweek.
When getting together with all of the girls we almost always opt for a DIY pizza party where we laugh over wine and mini pizzas before throwing on our PJ’s and taking the party to the couch where we can binge on sweet and savory popcorn while we chit chat through a chick flick. It’s always a good time full of belly laughs and quality girl time.
When it’s just Marc and me we like to keep things simple and about half the time I can convince him to get in on the at home facial before we resort to an evening on the couch with popcorn (something sweet for him and something spicy and salty for me) and an action filled movie. It’s always the most relaxing and I love that we both look forward to a low-key evening at the end of the week.
The perfect night can vary between a girls night, a night with the husband or simply an evening of me time but the essentials for the perfect night are always the same. Chic PJ’s like these ones from Sudara make cozying up extra comfortable and even better knowing that with every pair of PJ’s they are helping to free women in India of the sex-trade by providing them jobs. Something to feel extra good about! And of course, a delicious bottle of wine, an overflowing bowl of popcorn and a little pampering are always in order before diving into a magazine or turning on a movie.
How do you like to spend a night in? Would love to hear!
