Lookin’ for a dose of Zen before school gets ya crazy?
Invite your sistahs over for some seriously relaxing spa rituals you can
totally DIY. A trip to the store for supplies and a phone call to your friends
is all you need for this low-key sleepover. Talk about sweet!
Sure, you could grab
an already-made clay mask for a big-box store in your area. But we love the

and lemonade served in delicate glasses are chic sips.
When you’re ready to settle in for the night, slip into your
sleeping bags and pop in a movie or two. We’re loving over-the-top vacays, like
Selena’s latest big-screen hit, Monte Carlo.
Look for The Princess Diaries, What A Girl Wants and The Prince and Me on DVD.
