5 Essentials For A Girly Hotel Stay*

Is there anything better than a stay-over in a hotel [be this a city break, an overnight stay or a week all-inclusive in a 5* resort in Mykonos] with the gals?! The memories, the laughs, the indulgence of staying somewhere away from home; with fluffy towels & sachets of posh tea by the kettle. I always seem to sleep better in hotel beds too - don't know why? ๐Ÿ™‹

I'm staying in a hotel with the girls in a few weeks for a wedding we're attending and I can't wait - for all these reasons and more. I've compiled a quick list of some of the essentials needed [and which I will most defo be packing / sourcing during my stay] on every girly hotel break below - which ones do you agree with?

1. Face masks, sheet masks, all the masks

It might be a bit of a clichรฉ [but then again, so am I xox] but face masks, foot masks, under eye patches etc are totally a must when staying away with the girls. I always seem to do better with skincare when I'm living the hotel life - the incentive to look like I've proper got my sh*t together in front of the service staff is [evidently] strong. 

Whether you're on holiday, having a big night out or just a few chilled days away with friends, sheet masks are perfect for a little pamper. It's like, taking it back to school-day sleepovers; with those 7th Heaven heat up face masks [the ones in the sachets you'd always beg ya Ma for in Asda] & attempting wax strips for the first time. Memories. And bangin' skin. What's not to like?

2. Wine! Champagne on Ice. Cider. Prosecco. Martinis in cans.

Hun, I won't judge; only applaud whatever your choice of tipple is. But there's nothing better than a weekend away with the girls, checking into the hotel room and popping open a fresh bottle of bubbles to celebrate, is there? Especially if your stay is ahead of a night out [pre-drinks are a gal on a budget must] or for like, a hen party.

3. Speaking of that champers on ice & beautifully chilled ciders - a mini-fridge [or deluxe commercial drinks fridge if you're lucky!] is such a useful gadget to have access to on a girl's hotel stay.

The number of times I've stayed in cheap hotels without in-room refrigeration... and had to make very primitive wine coolers with cold water in the bathroom sink is not something I wish to disclose [although tbh it's not that many, as I'm too poor to book time away that often.] 

J&M Refrigeration specialise in commercial refrigeration options for hotel rooms & other hospitality sectors [such as in healthcare and pharmaceutical, butchers and bakeries, food retail, hotels, leisure and many more] as well as air conditioning... which is another HUGE must-have when staying away from home for me; I'm always too hot! Their units are available across the UK - delivered alongside a nationwide 24/7 maintenance service [promising to repair your fridge asap should you need it, with a maximum lead-time of 24 hours]... meaning you'll never need be without beautifully chilled wine for too long. No matter what. ๐Ÿ‘

In-room refrigeration is a game-changer when it comes to perfectly chilled ciders on a summer's day. To serve you up ice-cold, refreshing bottles of water the morning-after-the-night-before. If there's enough space next to ya chilled beverages, your snacks can also stay fresh in the fridge. Which leads me on nicely to my next point.

4. Chocolate. And plenty of snacks.

In fact, no hotel stay ever regardless of purpose, should be without a well stocked mini fridge and copious amounts of chocolate. It's the law. 

5. Tunes

Every girly hotel stay needs a Spotify playlist crammed with tunes, right? Tunes to chill out to in the morning, tunes to get ready to, tunes to make fresh memories with. I think every girl has that song that when it comes on in the club, sends them & their BFF wild [even if that song is Gangnam Style] - so what better accompaniment to your time away than a musical background you'll both love ๐Ÿ’—

What would you say are your 5 essentials when planning a girly hotel stay? Would you agree with my picks?
