Girls just wanna have fun, right?

Everyone is missing out on quality time face to face with their friends due to lockdown restrictions.

However, just recently Amanda Holden, star judge on Britain’s Got Talent, showed us all how important it is to catch up with the girls during lockdown.

“Amanda and her friends held a girls night in via zoom and invited us along via her instagram to show us girls how important it is to keep the girl power going strong” said artist and designer Kelsey Tyson, owner of Girl Limit, a home accessories and beauty brand.

So, if you’re missing your Sunday spa sessions, Tuesday treats cinema nights or Friday evening catch up drink’s with the girls, well look no further because we have you covered!

Staying in has now become the new going out.

Check out Girl Limit’s top 7 ideas for catching up with the girls during lockdown:

1. The HouseParty App

Instead of going out to the party, bring the party to you! HouseParty is the face-to-face social network where you can connect with the people you care about most.

The app makes connecting face to face effortless, alerting you when your friends are “in the house” and ready to chat so you can jump right into the conversation.

This is perfect for cocktail night’s in with the girls.

2. Zoom Quiz Night

Zoom has been very popular for online webinars and conference calls, however, it has been proving popular all over the UK in bringing families and friends closer together for weekend quiz nights.

Get the girls together for virtual drinks and have a themed quiz night chick flicks, heartthrob actors, dance floor bangers all while having fun from the comfort of your own sofa!

3. Online Pampering sessions

Who says you have to spend a fortune on a spa day out when you can bring the spa to your home.

Get the girls together for a relaxing evening unwinding, we could all use a break during the current stressful climate.

Make your own mud face masks, chop up a cucumber and place on your eyelids, show off your latest skincare routine and rate the products amongst your friends comparing and contrasting, dress in your comfies and pour yourself a glass of champagne.

Zoom will even let you change your background to make it look like you’re somewhere relaxing.

4. Online Yoga workouts

Get your girls vrtually together and do a workout from your own living room or home gym with online Yoga workouts.

Ask each friend to research a different exercise and then show eachother how it’s done.

It’s the perfect excuse to catch up with the girls whilst still maintaining your healthy lifestyle.

Yoga is also very soothing and relaxing, after the workout stay online and chat to check in with each other, make it a weekly thing!

5. Digital Book Club

Want to clock out of social media? Why not create your own digital book club.

Choose a book and make it up lifting, a book you can all lose yourselves in.

Each week  arrange a digital meet up to chat and discuss the chapters you have just read. So pour yourself a glass of wine and escape with your friends.

6. Cook Dinner Together

I know you can’t go to that favourite restaurant you all love but why not bring your favourite foods to your kitchen.

Organise an online dinner night. Pick a theme, make it fun, Mexican night with homemade fajitas, cocktails and why not even dress up?

Have a starter, main and dessert and share the recipe with your girls.

7. Just Dance

8. Keep Connected

And finally, just connect. If you don’t feel up to any activities don’t stress, just check in on your friends from time to time and let them know you’re thinking of them.

We all took for granted spending time with our closest girlfriends but staying connected online can make us appreciate them even more when we do get to finally see them in person.
