$20 Girls Night In Challenge
Wine - $2.99
Want to know how to the secret to finding reasonably priced wine? Reach for the younger bottle of wine. Younger aged wine is not only cheaper but a little more sweet!
Healthy Snacks- $7.50
Skip the junk food this time around and opt for a healthier alternative. Try this dark chocolate dish that's not only indulgent, but healthy! All you have to do is combine vanilla greek yogurt, raspberries, honey, dark chocolate, and freeze for 3 hours. Make this snack before your BFFs arrive or make it when your friends come over (and drink wine while doing it of course!).
Eucalyptus Face Cleanser - $.35
Time for a little rest and relaxation! Calm all of your senses by placing an eucalyptus scented washcloth on your face. To do this, dampen a few washcloths, place in a crockpot with eucalyptus oil, and slowly use to wash your face. If you really want to feel like you're at a spa, add a few slices of fresh cucumbers to your eyes after using the wash cloth. Not only do cucumbers smell delicious but they are detoxifying and naturally brightening.
Mani & Pedi - $4.00
No spa night is complete without a little mani-pedi. When picking out a polish, look for one that's thick and will go on in one layer. You can find Sally Hansen nail polish at your local drugstore or from H&M for an affordable price that can't be beat! Pro tip: Keep an eye out for coupons.
Candles & Incense - $1.50
Set the mood with relaxing candles or incense. Look for a gentle fragrance, such as lavender. Purchase incense sticks from Walmart (20 sticks for only $2.00) and you will have plenty of incense for many more girls nights in to come! Candles on the other hand can be a little more pricey. Pro tip: head to your flea local market on the weekends and look for vendors creating handmade candles for a reasonable price.
Technology-Free Activities - $0.00
Put down your laptop, cellphone, and kick it old school. Grab a pen, paper, and play your favorite elementary school game M.A.S.H. to find out who you will one day marry, what car you will drive, number of kids and pets you'll have, what house you'll move into, and which city/career you will have. After a few glasses of wine you'll begin to feel like a fortune teller, and the weirder the better!
Movies & Music - $0.00
Whether you're addicted to Netflix or still have DVDs laying around, turn on the TV and watch your favorite flick. Once you're done with the movie, jam out to your favorite station or play relaxing spa music on Spotify.
Spa Water - $0.00
At the end of the night detox from all of the wine you consumed with a refreshing spa water. Fill a cup with water and toss in a few lemon slices and raspberries. This drink is great for your skin and hydrating from the inside out.
