I grew up the oldest of five girls. I had so much fun playing dress-ups, making them up and taking pictures. I always envisioned that, as an adult, I would have little makeup parties at home with my girlfriends and daughters. Funny thing, I have five boys! And while they’re precious and adored, there’s a beautiful bond between me and my two daughters. While both are Tomboys, they love dressing up and doing arts and crafts. As my oldest daughter grows up (she’s almost 11), I cherish our relationship even more, but also the relationships I have with mothers of her friends. And while my childhood vision of facials, mani pedis and makeovers might be have been slightly different from my actual adult get togethers now, a part of that original vision is still very much present. Girls are always girls at heart (I believe), and even tired mommies want to play dress up and feel pampered now and then. My girlfriends and I send each other pictures of the latest eyeshadow palettes we’re coveting. My friend who lives out of town consistently shares makeup tutorials, how to pose videos, and more. My girlfriend here and I love to get together for drinks, lots of girl talk and fashion.
So I thought, why not share some fun ideas for other moms and girlfriends? It’s not a unique idea, but it’s a fun one! And a girls’ night in doesn’t have to cost a lot. A bottle of wine, some inexpensive face masks, and we’re back to our youth. These ideas are perfect to use with friends, your daughters, or both 💕.
