Girl’s Night

You just can’t beat a girl’s night out.

Life often gets in the way, everyone’s busy, everyone has things to be getting on with so it can feel a little like herding cats.

But once in a while, when you do manage to get a group of your favourites together for a proper catch up… it’s just magic.

(Forgot to take a proper outfit pic, so here it is dissected! ^)

Baileys Cocktails-5

Obsessed with this dress.

More than a few chaps came over toย tell Alexย how lovely she looked in it, and y’know… casually ask if she was free!

Baileys Cocktails-6

Which she handled with utter grace…

Baileys Cocktails-7

…while the rest of us cracked up!

Baileys Cocktails-8

It was Bailey’s who finally gave us all an excuse to get together.

They’ve come up with the most fiendish of inventions.

It’s called a “Flat White Martini” and it’s set to take the espresso martini world by storm!

Baileys Cocktails-1-2

It’s an utterly delicious concoction that sort of tastes like a bowl of melted ice-cream, with a sexy little kick.

You can make them at home pretty easily, just take;

50ml Baileys Original Irish Cream
25ml Smirnoff Vodka
25ml Espresso or really strong coffee

Shake over ice, and pour into long stemmed glasses. Top with a couple of coffee beans, or maybe ย a little grated chocolate (that would be pretty grate! -geddit?! Grate! Lol.)

And serve with excellent company.

Baileys Cocktails-10

I’m working with Baileys, who commissioned this post, but regardless of that, these are right up my street.

Though keeping a little frosty water on hand for the “every other water” rule, is always a good idea.

Baileys Cocktails-11

Between (and during) endless rounds of Flat Whites, we chatted and laughed until our ribs hurt.

Baileys Cocktails-14

With a tiny bit of dancing and singing thrown in for good measure.

Baileys Cocktails-16

Baileys Cocktails-17

Baileys Cocktails-18

Steph is getting married this weekend, but I can’t make the wedding. So this was a perfect little pre-celebration to wave farewell to her single status.

Baileys Cocktails-19

The rest of the girls are heading to Ireland for the ceremony, and I’m already itching to see the photos!

Please tell me I’m not the only one who swoons over wedding pictures?

Baileys Cocktails-20

Baileys Cocktails-21

^ Yes, that is a man standing on our table.

He was belting out a little Mariah Carey, which we all somehow knew the words to, so joined in too.

Baileys Cocktails-26

The night ended in Spuntino where we totally over-ordered all of the sliders, buckets of mac ‘n’ cheese and stacks on stacks of fries.

Which, if you ask me, is how all girl’s nights should end.

    Thanks for sharing! x

    FLAT WHITE MARTINI?! I am a huuugggeee Espresso martini fan, but this has my name all over it. YUM. You all looked so elegant/trendypants, love a fun girls night xxxxxx

  • Lucy Birchall

    One of those Flat White Martini’s would welcomingly replace the almond milk cappuccino’s I’ve been drawing in recently as I finish off the last of my University work! Perhaps it’d be best to save them once it’s all complete at the end of next week? Alex’s dress is gorgeous, just added it to my ‘Save for Later’ items on ASOS.

    She’s So Lucy

  • White dresses are on point! Such a fashionable bunch of ladies xo

  • It’s always an amazing night when you have the girls together! Those martinis look amazing, I might have my friends over and make a few of those lovely drinks!

    What a great post (thank you for being honest it was sponsored) ! I love everyone’s dresses and the drink looks fantastic ! Blurry photos = proof of a good time.

  • Ana Simรตes

    Amazing, Rosie.
    Sounds like so much fun. And I find it really funny when guys get interested in demure looks, instead of obvious ones. (I totally swoon over wedding pictures. I actually follow a few specialised american blogs just so I can peek on other peoples’s weddings. Not in a creepy way, I swear.)

  • Sara

    What’s the name of this place? ๐Ÿ™‚

    • Claudia

      She said on Instagram comments that it’s horrible so she didn’t want to reccommend on the blog.

  • Serena

    The photo quality is very poor ๐Ÿ™ Maybe it’s time for a new camera??

  • What a great ladies night! You’re all beautiful!

  • In a non-creepy way, the blonde in the black is absolutely stunning! You all are! What a fun night out! xx

  • girls nights + cocktails + mariah carey is always the best! Looks like a blast and I’m obsessed with the dress!

    This post makes me so excited as my long time best girl friends (from fourth grade!) who I haven’t gotten to spend time with in forever are coming to town this weekend. I hope we have as fabulous a time with plenty of shenanigans as you seem to have had! And you’re right, nothing can ever really beat a girls’ night.

  • Flat White Martini? Helloooo….

  • Really intrigued to try a flat white Martini. I’m not usually a fan of Baileys as I find it too rich & sickly, but maybe with the vodka it might be a goer! You girls all look gorgeous! Looked a fun night.

    Hugs Adele xoxo

  • A real Sex and the City scene! You girls are lovely!
