Girls Grand Night In with SKYCITY + Win

The last few months for me have been crazy, with everything from work to events to boys – my mind has been all over the place! I decided that I needed some downtime, and what better than a staycation with my bestie at SKYCITY Grand Hotel? There were no distractions, chick flicks, bubbles, great food, and best friendship – it truly was the ultimate girls night in! If you’ve been having a hectic few months, or you just want to spend some quality time with your bff – you need to do this! Thanks to SKYCITY I’m giving you the opportunity to have the ultimate girls night in so keep reading and find out how you can have some quality time with your bff!

I invited my girl Stephanie, also a beauty blogger by the name Beauty Lust, to join me for a night in. I promised a night away from our phones (well, almost… there was free wifi, what can I say?), DVDs ready, robes on and a whole lot of girl chat! Naturally, there was not a better place than the SKYCITY Grand which always delivers.

Staying in at the SKYCITY Grand allowed us to find neutral ground, to be in the moment, away from chores and flatmates – it was a place to truly relax. We started by cracking into some bubbles and jumping into some gossip; it wasn’t long before robes were on and DVDs were out!

I booked us into the newly refurbished, very spacious and airy Premium Luxury King Suite because we deserve it! We had an extensive menu for ordering in. Pizza from Gusto at the Grand, of course, was my pick!
If you did want to leave the comfort of the room, Gusto also do Aperitivo Hour down at the bar which is conveniently in the lobby of the hotel! If you buy a drink between 5 and 7pm you get a complimentary bite to eat. Perfect if you want to go out but still be within 20 metres of the lift to your room!

What’s a night in without a good selection of chick flicks? Poor Steph, though, I made her watch Magic Mike, but it’s the perfect girls’ night in film, right!? The room has both a DVD player and SKY Movies – so we were spoilt for choice.

    Skycity grand would be perfect for a girls night with my bestie as its so close to all the shops in town! I’m from Invercargill and my bestie has not long found out she is pregnant so would love an excuse to have a weekend away to shop, relax and cut loose while we still can 😊😂

      Good call! Plus air conditioning in the room and a comfy bed! Ideal for someone who is pregnant and needs some chill time. Good luck Emma.

    My bestie is always doing everything for others, this would be perfect as we love the area, the fed is our favourite place to dine and right near by! As well as east day spa! I love to spoil her for all the wonderful things she does for everyone else! <3

    I have never been to the skycity grand hotel before but my sis (my bff) says it’s defiantly relaxing (which me and get need at the moment) time to chill out from daily life. I would love to win this cz I would love to fly from Christchurch (my expense ) up and surprise my sister ( lives in massey)because I miss her so much.

    Sky City Grand Hotel would be the perfect place to chill with my bestie in comfy white robes, watch Ab Fab the movie and girly chick flicks with a bottle of bubbly and just be pampered sounds like heaven!

    This would be perfect for me and my sister! She just got a new job and she’s having a tough time at work, not only is she working full time but her co workers aren’t very nice to her! She is always putting others first before her self, I feel like she deserves a treat! We would relax in the robes and have some quality down time without all the stress of work and boys 😋 ALSO PIZZA 🍕 🍾🍕⭐️

    I would loooove a girls’ night in with my bestie at the Skycity Grand! We haven’t spent much quality time together over the last few months as she’s been absolutely smashing it at uni – getting top of pretty much every single one of her classes – but this afternoon she’s FREE! Would be great to celebrate with a night not too far from home 🙂

    I have had a massive year this year, with moving my dance school into its own studio after teaching in a school hall for the last 5 years, I have grown my school from 46 students to over a hunderd this year and while doing the studio I have also planned our end of year show. In saying all of this my girls where there for my every step of the way and they never gave up no matter how moody and stressed I got. This would be a real treat for me and a thank you to my amazing girls

    Oh wow! Thank you so much for this opportunity themoderngirl! I know all so well how life can get so busy with kids, work, husbands and family stuff, that we often dont get to spend real quality time with our bff. My best friend Hayley is an absolute angel! We have both been through some pretty heavy stuff this year but it has made our friendship so much stronger. She totally deserves a break to chill before she goes from working full-time back to full-time study all while raising her awesome little family. To have the opportunity to spend this time with her in one of the most gorgeous hotels in Auckland Skycity Grand would be such an unforgettable gift! 💗 you Hayley 😇

    Me and my best friend alex are about to be split up as I am moving to Australia in January! But with exams and stress I think one final celebration with my favourite human alive would just be so perfect! I really really really just think we need this and i couldn’t dream of a more perfect way to say goodbye ❤️❤️❤️

    Just being away from home and kids and the multitude of things that come with normal adult life is the best part about it – you can truly relax! That and being so close to so many of the amazing restaurants in the Sky City precinct!

    Because it’s so central to everything, not far to carry our purchases, and so close to the beautiful waterfront. My cousin needs this after a rough year, I would live to treat her
