Pretty In Pink: Girls Night In

Once a month or so, I like to invite my best girlfriends over for a night of movies, beauty, and snacks (and wine!) – a grown up sleep-over or girls night in if you will. It’s a great way to save a bit of money, ditch the heels, and bond without distractions. My friends absolutely love it and we alternate hosting so each of us can feel like a party-planner from time to time. Toss on your pj’s, pop some popcorn, pour a few glasses of wine and get ready for a night of laughs (maybe some tears), mani’s, and sweets – memories from a girls night in last a lifetime. Here are a few of my essentials tips for planning the best girls night in around:

1. Movie Marathon: Put together a list of favorite movies to marathon watch. Classics, romantic comedies, and girl power films are always a hit. Think Breakfast at Tiffany’s, When Harry Met Sally, Love Story, The Big Chill, and Mean Girls.

2. DIY Beauty:Face masks and manis are a must – try making your own mask (check out my book Front Roe for a great recipe!) or check out my favorites here. Try new colors on your nails, right now i’m obsessed with the blush pink by Essie, called Eternal Optimist.

3. Snacks:This is a time to indulge in all the treats you want. I love the combination of salty and sweet, try making this adorable pink popcorn. It’s super simple (if a little sticky!) to make, and is guaranteed to be a smash hit with your girlfriends.

Ingredients

1 bag popcorn (salted is fine, but avoid other flavors)
⅔ cup half and half
1 Tbsp white corn syrup
¼ tsp salt
2 cups sugar
1 tsp vanilla
pink food coloring

Step 1: Mix the milk, corn syrup, salt and sugar together in a small saucepan. Bring to a boil over medium heat, and stir consistently until the sugar is completely dissolved.

Step 2: Remove from heat and stir in vanilla and a few drops of food coloring. The more you add, the darker your pink.

Step 3: Pour your popcorn into a large bowl, and then pour the mixture evenly over popcorn and stir until its evenly coated. Spread your pink popcorn evenly on aluminum foil to dry. This could take a few hours, so go it well before you pop the chick flicks in the DVD player!

  • I remember the first time I met Ralph Lauren. I was working at Vogue.com in London, and was flown to Moscow (yes Moscow!!) for the launch of his flagship store there. The runway show was epic: a live orchestra played, and afterwards we drank frozen vodkas shots with pickles, and ate supper at the ambassador’s home under a hundred candelabras. We danced til the sun came up. Tonight, I’m getting a sneak peek at his @skyatlanticuk documentary, #VeryRalph, which I’ve been DYING to see, and it was incredible! Catch it tomorrow on @skyatlanticuk, or on demand any time. #ad
  • #ad Friendsgiving has become a very happy tradition for me. Living in LA, all us Brits had families far away so to celebrate the holiday we would gather to cook, eat, drink, play games, and laugh for hours. I was naturally always in charge of cocktails and this year I’m making the @ketelonebotanical Botanical Spritz. So easy to make and so delicious with no sugar and no carbs- just add club soda and fresh fruit to your favourite varietal in a wine glass! Can’t wait to bring this tradition back to England this year! #PeachandOrangeBlossom #KetelBotanical #BotanicalSpritz
  • I had so much fun shopping for Honor at @ilgufo_official today- and I got to chat to the Italian heritage brand’s elegant CEO @alessandrachiavelli ... watch it all on my stories. How are Italians just always so impeccably chic!? #ad #ilgufo_official
  • Today we walked to the town square and listened to the trumpets salute our fallen soldiers, we watched the helicopters fly overhead, and we listened to the choir sing. I wish Honor could have met her brave great-grandfathers, who fought in the RAF and the army, but I shall make sure I tell her all about them, and that every year we will proudly wear our poppies. #LestWeForget #RemembranceSunday
  • Literally got my claws into him 🤣
True romance ♥️
Love you babes @mackenziehunkin
  • Writing down your dreams and goals is such a powerful way to start making them a reality - but when was the last time you took the time to do it? I have lots of plans for the year ahead (like creating our dream family home!) and @kikki.k dream journals are the perfect way to set the wheels in motion, inspired by @kristinakikkik and her book.
