girls night in…


It’s Monday so that means it’s time to plan out another Girls Night In!

Getting lost in a few hours of reality TV sounds amazing right now!

I’ve got all the basics covered so don’t worry your pretty little head about a thing.

Booze? Check. Snacks? Check. Trashy TV? Check. Face Masks? Check.

This week it’s all about convenience because I’m totally LAZY and have a million things going on.

So, let’s get down to business and start getting tipsy.

The Drink

This past week I created my now favorite drink. It’s super easy to make, super low-calorie, and hydrates you while still getting you tipsy.

I’ve dubbed my drink The Skinny Bitch because it’s aspirational and it’s something we all want to be.

Here’s what you’ll need for The Skinny Bitch:

1-2 shots of chilled Absolute Lime Vodka

1 lime wedge

Cranberry Juice – I prefer Diet or Light Cranberry



Take 1 lime wedge and muddle into the bottom of your glass. Take your glass and fill it with ice. Add water until the glass is filled 3/4 of the way. Then add your 1-2 shots of Absolute Lime Vodka. Add a splash – yes just a splash of cranberry juice and then squeeze remaining lime into the drink and mix.

And voila you’ll have a delicious and guilt free drink to sip on. Legit everyone kept asking me about my drink at a BBQ and everyone who tried it loved it.

Now go be a skinny bitch!

The Snack


I told you it’s all about being lazy this week and that means reaching for an old faithful in the snack department.

I’ve been dying for some ice cream without the expanding waistline and depression that follows.

So, this week I’m reaching for Halo Top which is actually really good and full of protein. Talk about guilt free snacking!

While I haven’t tried all the flavors my favorites so far are the chocolate peanut butter flavor and the sea salt caramel.

However, I just bought the Smores flavor and I can’t wait to dive into it – literally!

The FaceMask


I’m all about de-puffing this week. I swear after being out in the sun, heat, and indulging in summer foods I’m in desperate need of a detox.

While water helps de-puff my face and body I like to take extra precaution with my face. Believe me – puffy-faced Lara ain’t a cute Lara.

So this week it’s all about sheet masks that calm, hydrate, and de-puff my face perfectly.

My favorite super affordable sheet masks are by Leaders and Tony Moly which can both be purchased at Ulta. On the higher end spectrum, I love SK-II’s sheet masks and recently tried Dr. Jart’s sheet and rubber masks which are AMAZING!

Although, tonight I think I’m going to give the Peter Thomas Roth Un-Wrinkle 24k Gold Intense Wrinkle Sheet Mask a whirl. I’ve been holding onto for a special occasion and I think tonight fits the bill.

The TV Shows

For me, it’s all about the Real Housewives of Orange County premiere tonight! I can’t wait to see what the RHOC are up to this season.

Plus we have the RHOP reunion, part one of the Southern Charm reunion, RHONY, and so much more!

I can’t wait to see what goes down on Southern Charm and RHONY. Also, part one of the RHOP reunion wasn’t bad – I only watched half but I’m enticed enough to watch the rest.

I will be live tweeting all the above shows so make sure you join me! Follow me @LaraSophia for all the details!


That’s all the fun I have for this week, bitches. But if you want more make sure you listen to my weekly podcast Pop Fizz Clink which is available on iTunes and SoundCloud.

What are your favorite Girls Night In rituals?

xo, Lara
