Wouldn't you rather have a night in?

It's been a while since I've actually had a night out to be honest! I'm not really a fan of doing the whole night out thing now I'm a mum. I like to be tucked up in bed at a reasonable time hoping I can get some beauty sleep, although with a newborn it's not very likely! I remember when I was younger (I sound so old now!) you could have a decent night out on £20 and catching the night bus home. Now you're looking at paying at least £30 plus on drinks plus the taxi fare home, which from Leeds, costs a hefty £30 to where I live! 
Just think of how many pairs of Primark shoes you could buy for that?!

A recent survey undertaken has shown that a whopping 70% of women would prefer a night in. These ladies have definitely got the right idea, I mean who wants to go out in winter anyway? It's far too cold for that at the moment. I would much rather be tucked in under my snuggie with my girlfriends, a movie, take away and a glass of wine. It goes to show that Leeds ladies would much prefer to be wearing something comfortable and warm too, 35% of those surveyed felt they couldn't dress up without being judged for a night out. 

What do you need for a good night in then? 
Well besides the standard take away and bottle of wine, there needs to be chocolate of course. Every girly night in needs to have beauty treatments, so why not do your nails and pop a face mask on? All this can be done whilst watching a nice movie too! Now I'm not a fan of chick flick movies, I'm a big horror and indie movie buff, so having a subscription to Love Film helps everyone pick a movie you all want to watch. 

The Chocolate Beauty Box - £55 from Hotel Chocolat

By the look of those Hotel Chocolat chocolates, 
I know where I would rather spend my drinking money!
Wouldn't you just prefer a night in?

  1. I'm definitely more of a stay-at-home kind of girl! Everyone thinks "oh, you're a student, you must spend all of your money at the bar!", and that's just completely wrong! I would much prefer to snuggle up on the sofa with a DVD on and some lovely food, be it takeaway or homemade x

    1. I think that's true though, everyone stereotypes students as big heavy drinkers! x

  2. Ha I love this, I love cosy nights in! I always compare the cost of a night out in the town to it's cost equivalent in clothes/shoes/make up, sometimes I'd rather have a night in and go shopping the next day lol

    1. It's always better! I would rather feel I've got something for my money, rather than guilt tripping myself that I've spent so much with nothing to show haha :) x

  6. Hmmm... I seem to remember that even pre-Dex you used to get more excited by the thought of Fantastic Mr Fox than by the thought of staying until closing...
