Slumber Party Essentials

Let’s face it, even when you are out of your pre-teens sleepovers are still fun! A girl friend of mine was in town on business and we decided to kick it old school and have a sleepover in her hotel room 🙂 Here are some fun ideas for a cute and comfy way to spend a night in, not to mention a concise list of next-morning essentials that would be ideal to bring on a weekend away. 
Sleepover Party
On an overnight stay you want to pack light, chances are you won’t need your entire beauty arsenal for a 1 night stay. Here are a few beauty basics that are perfect for short term travel:
  1. Sephora Party Starter Brush Set – A little brush set comes in handy when you don’t want to sacrifice precision in your beauty routine, not to mention this fun little set is adorable!
  2. Stila All Day Try-Me-Set – Teeny tiny but still all of the lovely stay-all-day care you love about Stila 🙂
  3. MAC ‘Mini’ Demi Wipes Cleansing Towelettes – When it is time for bed you will thank yourself for this cleansing cloths, they are great when you don’t have a wash cloth handy.
  4. Urban Decay Naked Palette – This palette is just plain amazing, I take mine everywhere I go because you can create any eye make-up look your heart desires and it takes up minimal space when travelling.
  5. Batiste Dry Shampoo Original Mini – This product rocks! It works perfectly when you need to refresh your hair in the morning but don’t have time for a shower and style.
  6. Sephora Tame The Frenzy Travel Brush – Tame that messy bed-head after a sleepover with this adorable miniature and again, perfect size when you need to pack light!
  7. Revlon Photoready Powder – I love this product, it has amazing coverage and I find that I don’t even need foundation before I apply it.
  8. Bath And Body Works Forever Red – When you don’t want to bring your fancy perfume along (glass bottles are a little fragile!), this scent is luscious and a quick spritz goes a long way.

What is a Pajama Party without your PJ’s? Here are two fun looks that would be perfect for a girls night in:

1. Cutesy and Fun: This look definitely is reminiscent of teenage sleepovers. I’ve paired a My Little Pony sweater with some comfy and adorable shorts for a youthful and fun look. Add an adorable polar bear weekender bag and a girly floral make-up case to carry all your needed supplies.

  2. River Island Grey My Little Pony Sweater
  3. Juicy Couture Sleep Essential Short
  4. Olula Overnight Bag

2. Cool and Chic: This look is a little more sophisticated but still fun and chic. Pairing a comfortably loose tank with some graphic floral shorts is fashionable without sacrificing comfort. To carry all your essentials, I’ve added a fun neon make-up bag and a trendy Herschel duffel.
