We’re constantly told to move on and grow-up. We’re told to leave our childhood hobbies aside and start “adulating”. We’re told to act mature, make wise decisions, and constantly be on our best behaviour. We’re also told that the fun we had as a kid isn’t exactly appropriate to be had as an adult. Yikes.
Why should we let ourselves be rid of all the privileges of being a kid? What about being carefree, spirited, loud, and excitable is so wrong as an adult? Remember the days when we lazed around with our girlfriends giggling about absolutely nothing, and running free through the house with crazed face-masks of avocado. Ahhh, the good old days!!!
In all honesty, how many of us actually “enjoy” hitting the town every Saturday night? How many of us actually have “fun” sitting at a hoity toity restaurant? The best part of going out with your friends is, and always has been, the pre- activities or post- activities.
I say we put a stop to this absurdity, and start doing what’s actually fun. We all know where I’m going with this one… SLUMBER PARTY!!!
This sacred activity deserves to be done in style, and done correct. Below is a list of all things essential for a slumber party with your gals (whatever adult age, and at any stage of adulating you’re at).
Obviously an absolute essential is food and nibbles. First off, always have chocolate at your disposal. You’re also going to need chips, lollies, and all the other naughties. When it comes to dinner, I say make it a part of the night. Why not have some fun doing “adult” stuff and make a collective yummy dinner. We may as well use our acquired skills for something.
- Adult cordial
Have the goods on-hand. A great option for your slumber party is wine, also known as lady petrol. You just know you’re going have the giggles all night, spill your secrets, probably shed a tear, laugh again, dance, sing way too loud, and whip your hair back and forth one too many times. Sounds amazing.
- The perfect playlist
To ensure the right vibes are created for your flawless girl’s night in, make sure you have all the right tunes. I’d say a good mix is the way to go. Chuck in some ballads, pop, old school, Indi, R n B, and definitely keep the classics on-hand.
Never underestimate a good movie binge. Have some ideas prepped to avoid time-wasting ahms and ahs. Some obvious choices would be the notebook, Notting hill, Love Actually.
- Pyjamas as an essential.
Basically no entry is allowed unless you are in your best lady’s pyjamas. This is a Saturday night after all. Whip out the luxury pyjama sets or chic nighties, sleep accessories including suave silk eye masks and sleek slippers. This is the time to whip out your Saturday night best. All sleep inspired items are welcome including super stylish cosmetic bags and over-night bags.
- Beauty essentials.
Ladies, it’s time to be pampered. It’s your choice if you want to go the bottled, professional route, or if you’re down for some real-time chemistry experiments. I say nerd-up. Easy options for the homemade remedies would be the essential avocado facial, homemade sugar and lemon scrub, olive oil cuticle and/or hair treatment (this one’s actually really amazing for your hair and its strength and growth).
Ladies, it’s time to have some real fun! This one is perfect for all ages, so there’s no excuse to have a good laugh.
Sweet dreams lovelies! xx
