My best friend from Oklahoma who has been my best friend since middle school somehow wound up in DC while I wound up not too far from her in Maryland, so luckily I still have her to hang with. She and my new friend Chelsea came over for a movie night. If you want to throw the perfect girls-night party, there are a few must-haves.
Reading material. VOGUE is my fashion bible, closely followed by W, ELLE and People Stylewatch. Doesn't Adele look boobilicious?
Flowers. What's more girly than flowers? It's a simple thing that makes a big impact.
Mood lighting. Every gal can apprectiate a flickering candle. It just makes you want to sit down and relax.
Mani-Pedi! Jess asked if it'd be okay to do our nails during the movie. Given that I can't do anything halfway, I arranged my nail polish and supplies on a silver tray.
Chick food. I served an easy antipasti to go with our personal pizzas.
For the pizzas we went with vegetarian toppings like olives, artichoke hearts and feta. We washed it all down with a huge bottle of wine.
For an easy low-calorie dessert, I made Kumquat Lemon Tartelettes using phyllo cups and low-fat lemon pudding. My face is somewhere underneath all that hair!
There was a very hyper and fashionable party crasher who kept wanting to pose while we were trying to cook.
Behold the most crucial part of a chick night...the chick flick! Bridesmaids is hands-down the funniest movie I've seen in a long time. Finally a comedy for girls who like innappropriate humour. And I'm still having dreams about that adorable Irish guy.
