I think a lot of people are under the illusion that Valentine’s Day has to be this super gushy romantic day. However, if you’re a single lady and don’t want to be reminded of how gushy this day can be, why not organise not just any old girls night in, but the ultimate girls night in?

~ The Pamper ~

My first tip for the host or if you want to bring a gift, is to purchase some skincare bits. I love girly sleepovers where everyone can put on a face mask and just ~chill~. In fact in my opinion, that’s the whole bloody point of them! My ideal skincare gifts would be some beauties from L’Occitane. I have loved this brand since I was about 13 years old, and I received a hand cream from my neighbours one Christmas (!!!), I just think their packaging is beautiful and their products are well worth the money. I’ve highlighted a few things that I would love to splurge on for my best girlfriends and I, but L’Occitane* have some stunning ‘gifts for her’ on their website that would relax even your most uptight mate! My suggestions would be the Neroli & Orchideé Body Care DuoNeroli & Orchideé Body Care Duo which smells delicious, or the Divine Ritual Collection which is full of minis – who doesn’t love minis?!

The Settings ~

I love the idea of making your house into a spa-like environment, so fuzzy robes would be ideal to hand out to your gal pals and letting them totally relaxxx. You could also tell them in advance to wear pyjamas because you know for sure that’s what I’d be wearing! These PJ’s from Boux Avenue are my faves!

Of course, no gathering of mine would be complete without a candle, I just think it sets the ambience so well, and with a lovely clean fresh scent, your house can smell just like a spa. If you read my ‘What I Got For Christmas | 2017’, you will know that another favourite candle of mine is one from the White Company. Honestly, spa-like candles are beautiful, and so easy to find!

The Entertainment ~

I am going to write a whole post about what I’m currently watching and loving on Netflix, but there are some amazing girly movies and original series’ on right now (Cillian Murphy is a bloody dreamboat), and it’s perfect to have on in the background, whilst having a ‘lil gossip and catch-up with your friends.

If you don’t fancy watching a film, then you could play some board games! I love a good board game, and I feel like we don’t play them enough, especially this close after Christmas! As long as no-one in your friendship group is not overly competitive (we don’t want the Monopoly board to be tipped over – yes there is usually always one!), but it is a really nice way to spend an evening, and it’s also a good way to ensure that you don’t spend the whole time on your phones! My fave board games are Articulate, Monopoly, the Logo Game and obvs Cluedo!

The Goodies ~

You can’t have people round and not provide some grub. This is probably my favourite part of having people over, I’m a feeder and I love shopping for food! I would buy lots of mini’s, hamburgers and hot-dogs, as well as lots of crisps and dip! The possibilities are endless!

As much as I’m trying not to snack, I would buy lots of chocolatey goodies and ice-cream – you can’t beat Ben & Jerry’s cookie dough!

You need to hydrate (lol) so why not make a huge batch of cocktails? I’m currently doing Dry January so it would be mocktails for me! I did a Christmas-themed cocktail post in December so leave me a comment below if you would like a new cocktail post because I had so much fun writing that post! Also you could definitely use some of the recipes from the Christmas Cocktails post, because a few of them are red and pink and look very Valentine-y (not that you have to make pink/red drinks but it could be cute!).

This would be my ultimate girly night in! Are you planning a girly night for Valentine’s Day? What kind of things do you have planned?

    I love the idea of a girls night in for Valentine’s Day! It is so true that we all first think about significant others and our gushy idea of what Valentine’s day is, but this would be so much fun! Love pampering nights! Also your pics are amazing and that drink looks so good!!!

    This sounds so amazing. I’ve never had a proper girly pamper night, and this post has made me want one so badly!
    This would be the perfect way to end a week as well! Also, those pyjama’s look super comfy!

    Love Bronagh, xo
