100 Girly Things To Do: Week Two

Hello Lovelies!

Here is my second week of the 100 Girly Things to Do tag! I'm a day late on this, but I got super busy yesterday, and by the time I got home all I wanted to do was sleep. Sorry! But anyway, if you want a fun tag to take part in after the 100 Things That Make Me Happy Tag is done (if you're doing that one), or if you just want something fun to do, I highly recommend this one! It's great fun!

11. Get Your Hair Done
Sure doing your own hair is perfectly fine (and cheaper!), but getting a professional's touch is so much better (most of the time)! Pop into a salon once in a while, even if it's just for a blowout! Your tresses will thank you!

12. Go To The Spa
Again, you can have a spa day at home, but can you give yourself a great back massage?? Didn't think so! I highly recommend scandinavian style spas... the hot and cold baths are amazing de-stressers. Top it off with a hot stone massage and ahhh.... bliss!

13. Start a Chick Flick Collection
There's nothing girlier than a shelf full of chick flicks! Wal Mart usually has some classic girlie films at only $5 in their bins. Whether you're feeling giddy, sad, silly, lovey-dovey, or e) all of the above, there's a chick-flick for that! (Okay, maybe an App too... haha!) and you'll love not having to run to Blockbuster to get your fix!

14. Read Fashion Magazines
Especially at the start of a new season (common Spring, hurry up!) flipping the pages of the latest copy of Vogue, Harper's Bazaar, Marie Claire, etc... is a perfect way to get inspired for things to come! A saturday afternoon spent in bed with a pile of magazines is time well wasted, if you ask me!

15. Have a Sleepover or a Girl's Night In
Gather a few girlfriends, some snacks and the ingredients for Cosmo's and spend the night in! Your chick flick collection and magazine selection will come in handy! Make it a theme night and dress up to add some fun! Don't forget your camera!

16. Start Your Own Herb Garden
These look so cute displayed on your kitchen window sill! Not only that, but think of all the wonderful (and fresh!) flavors you will be able to add to your meals, for a lot less than going to the grocery store!

17. Wear Pretty Dresses
Nothings will make you feel girlier than a pretty dress! Spring is *almost* here and so are gorgeous dresses at the mall! There are tons of pretty prints and styles to choose from! Pair them with a cute pair of heels and a nice handbag, and voila! Super chic and super girly!

18. Make Your Own Jewelery
Every girl knows that accessories are key to making any outfit complete! Why not pick up a few supplies and make your own? Not only will they be 100% unique, but they will also add a touch of personal flare to any outift!

19. Find Your Signature Scent
Whether it's a classic tried and true scent, or one of the beautifully fun and flirty new scents for spring, find a fragrance that's truly you, and make it your signature! You know how Chanel No.5 reminds you of your great aunt Edna, and Clinique Happy reminds your of your friend Jenny from high school? Well how about making one scent remind everyone of you?

20. Attend a Fashion Show
Fashion shows are tons of fun! Find one near you, grab a few girls, get all dressed up, and go get inspired! Take a note pad, a camera, and an open mind!

That's it for this week! If you are doing this tag, let me know I'd love to check out what you're coming up with! =)

Awww, this is so cute! I love it! I am going to try to incorporate some of these items.

Tracy D said...

Great ideas Andree, I think I'm going to schedule a blow out..I never do that and don't know why!

Belle Muse said...

Ohh Signature Scents are very key. I find most girls have a collections of perfumes. And to be honest, I only have one I've been wearing since I was 16!! :)

Bows and Butterflies said...

Love these posts. I realllly wanna go to a spa x

Straight Up Glam said...

Jenelle, yay! Let me know which ones you end up doing!

Tracy D, I think I'm due to schedule a blowout soon too, haha!

Belle Muse, I'm guilty of having a massive perfume collection... BUT!! There is one perfume that I reach for over and over again and have been doing so for 4 years now. The others are just for a change here and there depending on my mood!

Bows and Butterflies, the spa is so wonderful! I <3 it! I'm glad you like my post! =D

I love this site! I've been searching and searching for other people like me that need some creative ideas. I believe women need a little picker upper every now and then, and this is a perfect spot to be girlie! Love it! I will have to do the girls night in sometime b/c that sounds like my childhood days.
