GIRLY NIGHT IN FOR ONE

I've always been a much bigger fan of staying in than going out totally 23 going on 80 and with James away visiting family this weekend it felt like the perfect excuse to have a good old girly Saturday night in. 
I organised a 'Spoonie Secret Santa' this year with some of my fellow chronically ill chums and I was incredibly happy and excited to receive this Lush 'Butterbear' bath bomb in my present from the lovely Faye. I absolutely love Lush but find it quite pricey so I wanted to save this for a special occasion, and having the time to really relax in the bath with nothing to do or worry about felt like the perfect time to use it :) 
Vanilla and cocoa butter are my favourite scents and I could smell this little guy through the packaging so I knew I was going to love him. I think it's so cute how the label instructs you to 'drop into the water for a bear hug' - I did find it pretty strange having a bath without any bubbles as this is the first bath bomb I've ever used, but the water felt really moisturising and my skin felt thoroughly pampered afterwards :) 
There's nothing I love more in the winter than snuggling up in bed with a good film and cosy PJ's, especially as it was so chilly last night. My sister got me these for Christmas last year and with only four days until the big day (eeeeee) it's virtually illegal to not be wearing Christmas PJ's ;) 
I got a box of Roses chocolates for my birthday at the end of November and I hadn't opened them yet, so I picked out a few of my favourites to tuck into - it always starts to feel properly like Christmas once you've had some Roses/Celebrations/Hereos/Quality Street and no girly night in would be complete without some yummy treats :)
I don't get to watch girly films as much as I'd like to as me and James usually watch something together (he does quite like The Devil Wears Prada though!!) so I decided to head to bed quite early and watch two of my favourites. I always forget how much I love Becky Bloomwood, she's definitely my spirit animal!

I'd love to hear what your essentials are for a girly night in :)

Love Holly xo
