We love to get together with our girlfriends, drink some wine and mostly gossip about who is dating who. This is usually the main reason why we meet our friends which, to be honest, is the best part. I recently slept over at one of my girlfriend’s place who was hosting us for a housewarming girls’ night which turned out to be an awakening night. As Beyoncé says, “There’s nothing like a conversation with my girlfriends.”
What are some of the things you can do on a girls night in?
- Have an art session
Painting can be both a fun and relaxing activity that your girls can indulge in while still sipping on some bubbly and talking about the usual. For those who feel like they are not good at painting or drawing, there is an abundance of painting tutorials on both Instagram and YouTube with easy to follow instructions. Besides, making random doodles on a canvas is also a form of art. Additionally, painting has been linked to reduce stress in adults as it is a form of meditation and expression. In cities like New York, the sip and paint concept is quite popular if you need activities for a girls night in. You can also learn to do some crafts – crocheting, for instance, has come back with a bang and this might be just what you guys need to learn.
- Binge watch cheesy chick flicks
It can be physically draining to suppress emotions on a daily basis. Therefore, when the opportunity presents itself, it’s good to have a good cry or laugh even if it is for no reason whatsoever. That is what chick flicks are for. Chick flicks are carefully written movies with the intention to appeal to the love emotion. While it can get boring or pointless to watch more than two of these movies alone, there is nothing more satisfying than cosying up and watching chick flicks all night with a group of girlfriends. Some of the popular chick flicks include The Notebook, 13 Going On 30, Pretty Woman, Magic Mike, How To Be Single and Girls’ Trip.
