Host a DIY Girls Night

| Living

Remember what it was like to spend a whole night hanging with your girls, uninterrupted by screaming children or needy husbands who suddenly forgot how to cook anything for themselves?

Yeah, me neither.

If the idea of “Girls Night” seems like a long-lost foreign concept, you need to take matters into your own hands and fix that ASAP.

There’s honestly nothing quite like escaping from the responsibility and monotony of your everyday life to lounge with your best friends drinking wine, eating delicious food and discussing what to do with your hair at your next appointment. (Ombre? Platinum? The “Lob”? This could take all night.)

You don’t have to travel far or spend a lot of money to host a fabulous Girls Night In with your crew. We’ve compiled some of our favorite, most unique ideas that’ll give you and your gals a much-needed break from reality!
