Covid-19 has taken so much from us all. We’ve lost out on lots of the big things like birthdays, time with family and loved ones, weddings and even funerals. We’ve also lost out on some of the smaller things like going to the beach, the park, dining out until late hours and even the occasional ladies’ night. In life, we know that sometimes it’s the little things that count.
With the world gone digital, we’re putting a digital spin on a classic… Ladies’ Night, and what’s more relaxing than painting, sipping on some wine and swapping stories over Zoom, Teams or whichever digital platform you choose. It’s as easy as getting on your dinosaur slippers and sending a quick message in your ‘BFF’s WhatsApp group.
Step 1 – Get Drippy
No party is complete without the perfect look. For cosy nights in, we suggest an outfit to match the mood. Snuggle up in your favourite onesie (and yes, after this winter, having a range of onesies to choose from is completely normal) or get warmed up under your epic hooded blanket. With your look sorted, it’s time to move on.
Step 2 - Get Your Sip On
Time to show off all your fancy new wine tools to your girls. After all, who says gadgets are for guys only? With your red, white, or rosé at the perfect temperature and properly aerated, you are all set for an evening of caring, sharing and tea being spilled. And while dishing the dirt may be a great group activity you may want to consider something practical.
Step 3 – Get Colourful
Throw out the challenge to your crew and see who has the best painting skills. And while Paint by Numbers may be something easy for any age and skill level, it may be best to start this activity while most of the girls still have some hand-eye coordination left. Preferably before they decide to open bottle number two.
With the laughing, crying and promise of friendship done and dusted, it’s good to know that even in the crazy times that we find ourselves in, it’s still possible to connect with the ones we love in the way that matters the most. And even though we are socially distanced, we can still come together virtually to share our lives and share in the lives of our favourite people.
