We all get so busy with our jobs, families, and activities that we sometimes forget to set aside some girl time. Special time set aside for your “girlfriends” is a necessity. Studies even show that time with your friends lowers stress, build confidence, and is…well….PURE FUN! Whether you need to blow off steam, have a good laugh, or just need an excuse to dress up, then a girls night out (GNO) is all you need.
Making a plan in advance is highly recommended and clearing the calendar to find time is a must. But, before hitting the town, have your girlfriends over for some pre-partying.
Let’s start the night with some high energy music to set the mood for everyone. Maybe you could have your girls over to get ready together for some extra bonding time. so Let’s think about setting up one of the rooms in your home like a dressing room. Bring in mirrors, hair supplies, cosmetics, perfume, and of course some great cocktails. You can put out some goodie bags with small items like nail polish, lip gloss, nail files, lashes, or maybe even a style magazine for ideas.
Dee Buzz idea of the week is to have your girlfriends bring an item that are willing to share for the night to spice up another girl’s outfit. You would be surprised how a necklace or scarf can really change up the look. Then at the end of the night, you can either take it back or swap it out for the item lent to you! Its such a great way to freshen things up.
Dee Buzz pick for cocktail is a Cosmopolitan because it’s a simple & sexy drink.
1 oz vodka
1/2 oz triple sec
1/2 oz lime juice
1/2 oz cranberry juice
*Shake well and serve in a chilled glass
**If you will be driving, switch it up for a virgin cosmo with cranberry, lime, and orange juices and garnish with an orange peel.
So I say make those friends a priority. Make yourself a priority even more. Tell them how much you love them, because they need to hear it. Clear up those calendars and have some fun.
