Pajamas & Lipstick Is The Girls’ Night In Experience We Didn't Know We Needed

popular

What do you get when you mix pajamas, lipstick, and the company of an epic girl gang? Well, xoNecole's inaugural Pajamas & Lipstick event of course!


Planned by It's Your Party, the event took place on Friday, December 21 in Buckhead Atlanta, and offered everything a lit girls' night in could ask for. We had desserts by Good-N-Sweet Treats on deck, signature cocktails, tee pees, and a spicy card game that would truly act as the grand finale of our incredible night together.

Although I loved the attention to detail, the accents of pink and xoNecole blue that dripped throughout the intimate setting, what I loved most was the tribe of women xoNecole's Editor-In-Chief Necole Kane helped cultivate by bringing this idea to fruition. A room full of strangers and writers quickly evolved into an unbreakable bond as we shared dating tales and the moment when we found our self-worth.

The highlight of the night was a custom card game called Pajamas & Lipstick that was inspired by xoNecole's hottest topics on dating, relationships, sex and womanhood. Each attendee pulled a colored paper from a fish bowl to see which color card we'd get to pick from the pile. What happened next was nothing short of amazing.

The event ended up being the girls night we didn't know we needed. A circle of support, unity, and transparency, one that echoed and embodied the site, mirroring our core messaging of empowerment and uplifting all multifaceted woman. We were able to completely let our guards down and be open to share our experiences in a non-judgement atmosphere while also receiving the experiences of others.

As a result, for a lot if not all of us, walked away from the girls' night in experience with an undeniable feeling of empowerment, our heads held high, and crowns unmoved.

So, here's the deal about store-bought lubricant. Oftentimes, when people think about using it, it's in reference to "treating" vaginal dryness or making sex easier post-menopause (when our vagina walls tend to be thinner and our natural lubrication isn't as much as it once was). However, as you're about to see in just a few minutes, it really doesn't matter how wet you're naturally able to get or how old you are, everyone should have at least a few tubes of lube in their possession — an oil-based kind for non-penetrative sexual stimulation; a water-based one for sexy toys (or if you or your partner's genitalia is naturally sensitive) and a silicone-based one for intercourse.

Those who have experienced an HBCU homecoming understand the assignment. College students, alumni, and family of a Historically Black College and University gather and partake in the excitement of celebrating the heritage and culture of the school. It's a time of joy, honoring traditions, and for some, reflecting on the good ol' days. Homecoming weekends are spent eating well, laughing plenty, and enjoying the sights; and there's plenty to see and do! (Spoiler alert: Sleep is not on the syllabus.)

We all know the feeling. You plop down in a stylist's seat excitedly waiting for your slay to begin, only to be met with a look of panic when they actually lay eyes on your hair. As a woman with thick and coarse 4C textured hair, I know that gaze well. Sadly, so do most Black women, and it's been an ongoing problem in the entertainment world for decades.

Whether it was in passing at a meeting, while chatting with your best friend over cocktails, or in your favorite travel group, the phrase Mercury Retrograde has always been associated with catastrophic setbacks - especially those that relate to technology, travel and communication.
