I’m not one for sleepovers but I love chilled champagne, beauty, & some girl time.

Instead of just sitting around, I like to get busy when I’m with my friends. Most of the time this involves a serious, no shame cheese plate. Other times we’ll go with pizza & a movie. It just really depends on the mood.

I’ve compiled a list of how to multi-task when you’re with friends. Instead of just sitting around and talking, get creative while you’re sitting around & talking, lol.

Here are my top 5 ways to chill with your friends while multi-tasking:

1.) Make cute, girly Instagram worthy drinks. Don’t lie: You know you love a good Insta-worthy cocktail. Especially when the lighting is just right & the garnishes are Lauren Conrad-cute. We all know I’m a fan of champagne bars. And candy. And champagne bars & candy together. Get playful and creative with a set up for your friends. Add little bowls of pomegranate seeds, different colored sugars (for the rim of the glass), frozen berries, &/or herbs like mint, basil, or rosemary. Also, Kombucha & champagne is always fun. It’s quick & easy plus you’ll get that cute Instagram shot.

2.) Do a little beauty fluffing: beauty is kind of a given. Whenever I have friends over at night I create sort of a beauty bar (a champagne bar & a beauty bar is basically girl heaven). My beauty bar has four things: grapeseed oil, a coconut oil treatment, Bioré Deep Cleansing Pore Strips, & frozen cucumbers. The grapeseed oil removes makeup in one swipe. Literally an amazing, all-natural makeup remover. The coconut oil treatment is just coconut oil with lemon (it helps with hyper pigmentation). The Bioré Pore Strips have been a favorite since year 2000. I love their Limited Edition version because they have these amazingly cute graphic prints that make a girls night even more fun. They are easy to apply & pull out ALL impurities – including any dirt & oil buildup. Lastly the frozen cucumbers are the best things ever for puffy, tired eyes. I leave them on for 10 minutes at least, while Brazilian Lounge plays in the background. If you want to get crazy do ice facials too. They’re free & effortless and make a sure difference.

3.) Magazines, movies, book club, you get it. A book club is SO FUN to host with your girlfriends. Pick a book, read it, make a date, discuss the book…amongst other things. Have some Martinis too. I do like movie nights too, but if I had to pick – book club would be my choice.

4.) Workout: my favorite of favorites. I love working out with friends. I like to do an hour hike or do TSC Bombshell Body (27 minutes, what up! ). Put on some music, talk a little, sweat a lot, & then do coffee. Really easy, really productive.

5.) Shop, bike, walk the dog, travel, &/or talk business: get active! There’s nothing I love more than going to coffee with a friend who’s a blogger or someone who’s in the business world & talking shop. I’m also a huge fan of walking Pixy & Boone with friends or taking a bike ride or even traveling. Because moving is so much better than sitting around.

Anything I’m missing?

    I love this post! I get totally awkward sometimes just sitting around so I love these ideas. I feel like sometimes I’ll even just run a few errands with a girlfriend. It makes it so much more enjoyable and especially at the grocery store I feel like it’s a good way to keep me accountable on my fitness goals to have a friend!
    Will def be dragging someone along soon to do the TSC body guide!! I’m obsessed <3

    Love the tip about grapeseed oil—I had no idea it was a natural makeup remover! I just recently moved to Boulder from California and natural products are huge here.

    I’m liking the natural bath products & essential oils for perfume. I’m struggling with finding a good all natural deodorant that actually works. Obviously I want to be healthy but spicy pits—if you’ve used natural deodorant you know what I mean— are gross!

    Any suggestions?
