So here’s the sitch: you and your BFF are finally having that sleepover this weekend, but the usual routine of gossip, chips, and a scary movie has you yawning in boredom.
Well, wake up! GL’s got your tips so the two of you have an evening with memories that stick!
Eat Your Heart Out!
Ditch the typical pizza and soda combo (it's unhealthy, anyways)! Create an assembly line of meats, cheeses, veggies and condiments for your friend and the fam and custom-make some delicious sammies! Ready for round two? Put out your fave toppings and ice cream flavors for a sweet treat!
One in the same or knowledge to gain? See how well you really do know your fave bestie with a questionnaire. Write up some fun Q’s like fave celeb, movie, sport, etc. and print four copies. Hand out two each and then answer—once for yourself and once for your friend. Heads up, girlie; remember to stick with the positive Q and A’s to avoid those negative Debbie Downers! When finished, compare notes.
Go Fish and Dish!
Z’s catching up to you? Play a jazzed-up card game (try pagat.com for ideas) or stick to an old fave like Go Fish, Old Maid, or War so you can keep the party and convo going. After the game, choose your fave film. You’ll find it much easier to pick a flick without the big group. For added fun, see how well you can quote an old fave—winner gets next movie pick!
Whether it’s sharing advice (easy to do with your bestie) or finding that right shade, you and your pal can give each other one-on-one attention. For a spruced-up makeover, each pick your fave celeb’s look and see how well you can mimic it. Don’t forget to capture those before-and-after shots for Facebook—or go all out with a photoshoot. Want to boast your look on the screen? Channel your inner Selena-and-Demi and create a fun show together—get your parents to be your directors and post it on YouTube after. Do we spy the start of a series?
