Just because sometimes a night in is exactly what the doctor ordered. Whether you have the gang over for a movie fest or are soloing deep into the night, we have some tips to inject some magic to your regular evenings a la casa. 


Watch 
If you need some watching recommendations, we have your back. Let’s face it, with the million streaming options and constant shorts on our feeds, it can be overwhelming when finding something new (hence perpetual re-runs of Friends - not that we are complaining, it's a classic). HBO’s Euphoria is a must. If you haven’t seen this mind-blowing season you are in for a treat, add the grit of skins, alongside a diverse cast with a whole lot of musical genius from Labyrinth. It covers many unspoken challenges that both teenagers and adults face with a cinematic brilliance that will have you totally hooked. Good news? The next season is airing next week too… 


Sip 
Want a tipple while you watch? We are loving Mr Consistent. The name says it all. No more watered down, sugary, sub-par cocktail mixers, this stuff is the real deal. Make a bar quality margarita from the comfort of your home. Cosmopolitan anyone? Count us in. With a range including bloody mary mix to sangria, they have something for whatever mood you may be in. If wine is more your thing, we are loving the gorgeous natural wines from NOT WASTED, all crafted from sustainable winemakers, not to mention, delicious. What more could you want?


Eat 
We may not have been able to indulge in a European summer this year but that doesn’t mean we can’t bring it home. It may not be Isle of Capri or the French Riviera, but dinner in the comfort of your own home is still up there, and while we are in the midst of the hotter months here in Australia, why not? A classic Caprese salad is great for those warmer nights when cooking is truly the last thing you want to be doing. Plus it is simple, healthy and so easy that it allows plenty more time for cocktail making. Enjoy with either a light olive oil and lemon dressing or opt for a balsamic glaze for something a little sweeter. 


Self Care 
So TV - tick, drink - tick and dinner - tick, but why not add a tiny bit more self-love? We are obsessed with all things Lume. Their illumination mask is derived from natural ingredients and ethically sourced, meaning it environmentally sustainable, so a BIG tick from us. It comes in a stylish tube meaning no single-use plastic sheets, this one will last you, so more bang for your buck too.
