We’ve all been there before – it has been a busy and exhausting week, and you’re running on empty. Even the thought of cooking dinner or tidying up the house is too overwhelming to contemplate. The solution? A fabulous and relaxing girls night in, with a few of your favorite girlfriends. It’s the perfect way to recharge your batteries, while building friendships and having a great time!
Fun and Relaxing Girls Night Out
Planning a fun girls night in doesn’t need to be complicated. In fact, the point is for it to be relaxing! I like to keep it small, with only 4-6 guests, but feel free to invite as many or as few friends as you feel comfortable with. Dessert is always a must, and I love to do a favorite things party or some sort of pampering activity as well, like homemade facials or manicures. The whole point is to relax and enjoy each other’s company, so don’t make it too complicated!
When it comes to dessert for your girls night, you COULD be that person who sets out the boring fruit plate that no one eats. Or you COULD be that person who spends all afternoon trying to bake an elaborate dessert, only to have it end in failure and leave you more stressed than you were before. Instead, how about picking up an amazingly decadent frozen dessert from Edwards Desserts? It’s as easy as one-two-thaw, and you’ve got a decadent patisserie-style dessert that everyone will love!
Edwards Desserts have a delicious crushed cookie crust and velvety layers. My favorite flavor is the key lime pie! I love that it’s the perfect balance of tart and sweet, and the whipped cream on top adds the perfect sweet touch. You can find Edwards Desserts in a freezer aisle near you. Check out the product locator for exact store locations.
A decadent and delicious dessert is definitely the way to win your guests over and establish yourself as the queen of girls night! Chatting over dessert is the perfect way to catch up, get out some giggles, and build friendships. It helps when the dessert is as delicious as this one!
Now that dessert has been conquered, it wouldn’t be girls night without some pampering! I love to do manicures and pedicures at home, and this homemade citrus sugar scrub is fantastic. It softens skin, and leaves it feeling smooth and luxurious. It has only four ingredients, and takes less than five minutes to make!
Citrus Sugar Scrub
INGREDIENTS FOR SUGAR SCRUB –
- zest of one lemon
- zest of one lime
- 2 cups sugar
- 1/2 cup softened (not liquid) coconut oil
- 2-3 drops lemon essential oil
DIRECTIONS FOR SUGAR SCRUB –
- In a medium bowl, rub the lemon and lime zest into the sugar using your fingers to release the oil.
- Add the coconut oil and essential oil, then stir to combine.
- Store in an airtight container.
I always like to package up the leftover sugar scrub in cute jars, then send it home with my guests, along with some nail polish and emery boards. It’s a fun little memento to remember a fabulous girls night!
