It’s a Friday, and tonight is my favorite night. Girl Night In! On a night off from work, sometimes I don’t want to go causing raucous, painting the town red. Long hours and stress will leave me wanting to slumber in my jammies, rather than an LBD. So on nights like these when I want to pull the blinds and treat myself, I keep it consistent. I like to get my Netflix qued, snacks gathered, and a pampering product or two ready to treat myself.
I think I enjoy Netflix more than the average. It’s probably because I don’t actually have cable and my only sources of television entertainment are attached to my laptop and apple tv. Since I’ve gotten my own Netflix account (College? didn’t we all share passwords), I have binged more entire seasons than truly neccesary. It’s a bit alarming really. But I like my shows. Here are my series for a Girl Night In:
Orange is the New Black
One Tree Hill
Parks and Recreation
Law & Order SVU
For my snackies, unless I’m craving something super specific, like Cheetos Puffs or Captain Crunch, I will more often than not gather all the fixings to make my own popcorn, or pretzels with chocolate chips. I have a microwave popcorn popper like this one below, I keep kernels in the house, maybe some ketlecorn salt, add a little melted butter for flavor and boom, snackies! I also like to make little snack mixes with some mini pretzels from Snyder and Ghiradelli chocolate chips, so yummy.
Now after all the logistics are taken care of, how shall I pamper myself? I’m always up for a good mask or now companies are making masks just for the under eye area. Now that I think about it, I think I want to go splurging and find a new favorite mask. Hmm, maybe write about it when I’m through. Anyways, pampering myself may include of course a mani/pedi or my new favorite thing, a deep conditioning treatment for my damaged hair. You can lay them on, put a shower cap on, let them sit and do all of your pampering duties simultaneously!
I think I need to run Target! I’ve got some shopping to do! What do you do on your nights in? How do you treat yo self?
