are you in, or out?
for me, every once in a while there is nothing greater than getting ready for a girls night out. from the shopping, to the fake tan, hair, make up, shoes you name it i love making the effort. it might just be me as i am quite the weirdo, but i find sitting down in my dressing gown doing my make up really theraputic. especially if i've had a stressful week. according to a recent survey done by ladbrokes (see here) 70% of women preferred a night in over a night out, which i can totally hold my hands up and say i'm one of those people despite what i said right at the beginning. i don't think i could do this week in week out, i don't know how some people manage it. the novelty would totally wear off and it really isn't good for your body either; the combination of excessive alcohol, staying up to crazy hours in the morning and finally the pit stop to the takeaway followed by the taxi fare to take you home. so for me a cheap night in with a film and a glass of wine is definitely my preference.
as the weather is still pretty warm in the UK at the moment i can't exactly layer up in some joggers and a baggy t-shirt (my usual lazy day choice, how glamorous) so instead i'm really enjoying teddys and the floral number in my 'girls night in' montage of items is no exception. especially as it means you'll still be looking lovely even when in the house doing nothing. pair that with a glass of my favourite rosé wine from barefoot and a cute romcom like silver linings playbook and you are golden. for those nights in when you need a little extra TLC though i love running a nice bubble bath and popping a face mask on. waking up at 6am for work at the moment totally drains me and my skin so origins drink up intensive mask is perfect for bringing moisture back and keeping my skin looking plump and radiant.
so what do you prefer, staying in or going out? let me know.
