To celebrate Best Friend Day, we have selected our favourite things to do when we need to have a long chat with the girls, eat our weight in ice cream and enjoy a night of gossip and inside jokes. The ultimate girl’s night in is a great way to catch up with your friends and spend time doing the things you might not get to do every day such as painting your nails, ditching your diet and just having a good old gossip about people you mutually dislike.
Top 10 Girl’s Night Ideas
Put away your phones, grab some comfy clothes and your favourite pamper products, and get ready for the perfect night in with your besties that you could ever imagine.
‘No matter how tired I am, I get dinner at least once a week with my girlfriends. Or have a sleepover. Otherwise my life is just all work.’ – Jennifer Lawrence
Eat All The Cake!
Can’t Decide Between Cookies and Brownies? Eat Both! This gorgeous recipe from Broma Bakery combines 2 of our favourite foods into one incredibly delicious treat. Before even eating them, make sure and your best gal pals eat the remainder of the mixture….it is girl’s night after all!
Get Dressed Up
There’s nothing like having a fashion show with your friends! If you’ve been waiting for an opinion on the latest dress you’ve bought then now is your time to get it. Your friends will tell you the truth and keep you from stepping out in public not looking your best. Make sure you take lots of photos; you are lookin fabulous anyway!
Have A Movie Marathon
Switch on your Netflix, grab those brownies and have a night of girly movies. You can watch all the films that your boyfriend won’t watch with you and catch up on the latest episode of your favourite TV show. At the moment, we’re loving Playing For Keeps, which is a classic Rom Com, and leaves us feeling all cosy on the inside!
Get On Pinterest
Ever wondered how to do that incredibly gorgeous and looks incredibly simple, yet is actually very difficult fishtail plait? Pinterest has loads of great ideas and tips for you to try out new styles. Lookfantastic has some great ideas on Pinterest that you can try, so get looking with your girlfriends and perfect that plait!
Indulge In Your Favourite Foods
You know that messy burger you don’t like to eat on dates because you know it will go everywhere? Well, you can eat it with your bestie. The best part is she will indulge in it with you without judging you one little bit. Follow with the above brownie recipe for the ultimate girl’s night in treat.
Have A Sing Song
You might have a good sing song in the shower and when you’re getting ready in the morning, but there’s nothing quite like singing with your best friend. You can be silly together, get the words wrong and enjoy a good dance at the same time. Our favourite song at the moment is Justin Timberlake’s “Can’t Stop The Feeling.” It has us dancing all round the house, and is the perfect summer tune.
Go Old School
Ever wanted to revisit your favourite gang in New York or your friends in the O.C? There’s no better time than with your girlfriends. They’re super easy to watch and will leave you reminiscing about memories – pure perfection.
Have A Pamper Night
Try out some new beauty products and share the experience with your best friends. There has been some really exciting new launches already this year, which are perfect for your girl’s night in. Estée Lauder’s new Powerfoil Sheet Mask will leave you with a glowing complexion, and let’s face it, will make the perfect pamper selfie. Make sure you share them with us @Lookfantastic!
Get Online Shopping
Ever wanted to buy that really expensive dress from your favourite American retailer but worried that delivery costs were way too high? Why not do one big order and split the cost with your girlfriends? That way, you all have something to look forward to and can organise the next girl’s night in for when your order arrives!
Make Mojitos and Mocktails
Indulge in your favourite drinks at girl’s night in. If you don’t fancy drinking alcohol, make mocktails instead. They taste delicious and you can make them totally tropical for the summer months. However if you are in the mood for something a little stronger, kick back your heels, mix yourself a mojito and start girl’s night in the right way!
