Spa night, movie marathons, Diet Coke ®, and more – these are all the wonderful things that make Girls’ Night a good night. You can’t go wrong with a girls’ night especially when you haven’t seen your friends in a while. I’m talking a few weeks or so because we all work and have our own things going on so we can’t drop everything to just hanging out. You’re all adults so it’s not giggling over boys in bands or looking at yearbooks anymore. It’s a grown-up girls’ night where you can just let loose from your everyday life and do the unordinary.
That’s why you need to dedicate a night to your girls. If I can take time out of my usually scheduled program of a life, you can too. And, it’s only one night, it can’t hurt to let loose and have some fun.
Time to make an ordinary night, unordinary and extraordinarily great.
You can be living your most interesting life with your friends. You don’t have to do it alone all the time.
What can you do for girls’ night?
Well, it can happen in the house or out and about. I’ve had my share of nights out so I find that the nights in with my girls are some of the best nights. And, it’s more fun to stay in your pajamas and have an adult slumber party.
Include something to look forward to.
When you’re planning these events, you want to have something that everyone looks forward to – something that’ll keep life interesting even when the event is over. You could try something new or make plans that include a game that has never played before. For me, introducing the five flavors of Diet Coke® would be a great addition to the night. I’m a flavor person, and I like to mix things up, so I jumped at the chance to partner with Diet Coke. And obviously, you celebrate with your girls to inform them which is why you plan a grown-up girls’ night.
Plus, unveiling these new flavors are a great way to get my friends excited about something new in their life.
I was able to find all of the new Diet Coke flavors along with the one and only Diet Coke at Giant Eagle where they had the products on display for everyone to see as you stepped into the store and in the soda aisle. I’m a Giant Eagle perks shopper so I was able to indulge in the 2 for $7 and bought four 8-packs of each flavor. Never enough cans of Diet Coke when you plan to invite five to six of your girlfriends over – you never knew who will be super thirsty or obsessed once they try these drinks out. and, Giant Eagle was offering a great deal so I had to take it. Just know that I don’t pass up on deals ever.
The great thing about Diet Coke is that you can get these drinks as singles so you can try each flavor before committing to an 8-pack. This is your best route if you’re trying to figure out which flavor is going to spark up your life. Your taste buds are in for a great surprise and you can find the singles: here. Trust me, they will make your life much more interesting. You’re going to give kudos to Diet Coke for these flavors.
One, the new look of all the cans – I really like how they stand out and call attention to themselves. I’m not going to lie, a good looking product pulls me in and keeps my interest. Kudos to Diet Coke because this look is fresh and it pops. The cans are sleek and feature a color that coordinates with the flavor. How great do they look? The Diet Coke flavors are Diet Coke® Feisty Cherry, Diet Coke® Ginger Lime, Diet Coke® Zesty Blood Orange, Diet Coke® Twisted Mango and Diet Coke®. The new flavors all have a different kick to them. I was questionable at first but I truly liked each of the new flavors.
I’m an OG when it comes to Diet Coke so I am very happy that the original is still the same.
My favorite has to be the Diet Coke® Feisty Cherry. I’m a cherry-flavored person and I love that it’s sweet but there’s a punch. It definitely leaves a mark and it smells so good. I would recommend this one out of them all. My second favorite would have to be Diet Coke® Ginger Lime. I second guessed my favorite but the Feisty Cherry pulled through. The Diet Coke® Twisted Mango and Diet Coke® Zesty Blood Orange are great, too. They all have their own special touch which is why they need to be a part of girls night to make the night more interesting.

Movie Marathon with Everyone’s Favorite
When is the last time that you spent a night watching everyone’s favorite movies? Never because no one ever thinks to do that. You can watch movies and chill alone but when you have a movie marathon with multiple people, you can get a take on what they like to watch. It’s interesting to see what other people like and you can learn something new about your friends. You might like a romantic comedy and your friend might pick a thriller – it’s a night of unexpected movie picks. This is the one night to step away from your usual and experience something new!
Shake Up Your Spa Night
There is nothing better than making a night of self-care with your friends where you get to indulge in face masks and laughs. There are spa days and then there are spa nights with friends. It’s fun to get together with your friends and take funny pictures so why not make a night of it? You can watch everyone put on different masks and compare the results and opinions of them. Try something new that your friend might suggest like steaming your face or a sheet mask. You can even try something exhilarating like going back to the days when you built a fort. You haven’t done this in forever which makes it interesting and fun. Trust me, you can’t go wrong with a night that will help you take care of you and you can try something new while you’re at it!
Take a Spontaneous Trip
I think we all stick to the idea that a girls’ night should happen in our homes when it can happen anywhere. Try something new and ask your friends to take a weekend trip. This can be a spontaneous trip where you head to the next metro city and experience a new place. You never know the things you’ll learn and the people you’ll meet. Step out of the comfort of your home and enjoy a pajama party in another city. And the more people, the more the toasts so invite all of your girls!
Enjoy a night outside your normal!
This is your time to do something different from your norm. You don’t have to stick to the classic rules of a girls’ night. Just do something fun and new with your friends. Make it interesting so there are good laughs and memories in the future. Add a twist to your life, spice it up every now and then so you can say ‘I did that!’. Enjoy life whenever you can.
Don’t forget to enjoy life with some Diet Coke by your side.
I can’t wait to introduce Diet Coke’s new look and flavors to my friends. I can’t wait to hear their responses and see which flavor they like the best.

I love Diet Coke’s New Look! And yey for girl’s nights! One of the most fun ones I’ve ever had was a PJ party where we binge watched a show–it was great!
I love binge watching shows, definitely a girls’ night winner! Their new look is amazing, I’m really feeling it.
I have been dying to try the blood orange! I’ve seen a few girl’s posts who collaborated with Diet Coke, and everyone has said their fav is the cherry, so that is definitely on my list to try! I loved this post. 🙂
Blood Orange is really good. You’ll have to try them all because they’re all great.
WOW! I love your approach to using Diet Coke as an alternative! I’ll have to try the new flavors. I’m an original DC kind of girl!
I love the original, too! Diet Coke is a great alternative and so many flavors to indulge in.
This is so cute! I love the new cherry flavor (it’s the only one I’ve tried so far) I’m very impressed(:
It’s so good! Cherry has definitely won my heart.
