The How-To Lounge: A Proper Girls' Night Out

The How-To Lounge: A Proper Girls' Night Out

Every woman, even the ones that love spending time at home with their significant others, needs a night with their female friends every once and a while. But sometimes even our best intentions for making it a bonding extravaganza gets thrown by the wayside in the midst of drama. If you have a night out with your gal’s coming up, check out my tips for making it as successful and fun as possible. To see them


  • Have a plan before the day of. Pick a few places that would be good for your group. Then send out an email and let people vote on which place they like best. It will make everything easier if there’s a specific time and place in mind.
  • Make sure everyone understands that men are not invited. Even if you have to spell it out for them, it’s worth it. There’s nothing like one girl inviting her boyfriend to ruin everyone’s mood.
  • Plan on getting ready together if you can. Rushing around with your girlfriends before leaving will help get your energy up for the night out. Plus, it’s always nice to have someone around to ask opinions on your ensemble.
  • Let the night be an opportunity to splurge. Make dinner a smorgasbord. Order a dessert or two. Drink one glass of wine too many. Even if it means saving up for a few weeks, giving into temptation is worth it every once and a while, especially on a night that's meant to be fun.
  • Remember it’s all about your attitude. If you stay positive, it’ll reflect on every one else so put on a smile with your LBD!

Omg there's nothing that ruins a girls night out more than a girl's bf crashing it. That happened last time.. and my friend would not tell her bf to leave. It was horrible.. TOO MUCH DRAMA

Sorry, but the girl on the left looks like she is about 14.

I agree with skigurl. I hate having to either call my bf to come get me or have to take the cab home in the middle of the night. It's always because I don't have a place to crash.

it's also nice to know you'll be ending the night together - get a hotel room or plan an old fashion sleepover at the end of the night at someone's house...get pizza or your favorite after-bar food, and make it an overnighter that way, no one is left with a hefty cab alone, no one goes home early to see their boyfriend, no one is left at the bar alone etc.
