YOUR
GIRLFRIENDS

Chances are they’ve had a long week too. Get them to come straight from work because goodness knows if they go home in between, they’ll never again emerge from their pint of ice cream.

THE SCENE

A sweet soundtrack or a chick flick, and some soft lighting are the perfect way to set the scene. Light your favorite candles. We love Clueless, The Devil Wears Prada and Sex and the City — or pop on a classic like Breakfast at Tiffany’s for viewing pleasure.

REFRESHMENTS

It’s amazing how a glass of champagne can really perk up the workweek-weary. Add some berries and a cheese platter for the perfect side nibbles. And if all else fails, Friday nights were made for take out. We know you’ve got Shanghai Garden on speed dial. Now’s the time to use it.

PAMPERING

You’ll be all set to tackle the weekend once your face has been refreshed. Scrub and spritz your skin, and apply lashings of your most luxurious cream. Give those naked nails a spot of color too.

SHOES

It’s amazing how inspired your designs can be after a glass of champagne. Bring your laptop or tablet for designing. Swatches and magazines for inspiration are a must. And then all you need are the opinions of your Friday night buddies.

NIGHT

There's no shame in staying in. If we're being honest it's our preference. There's something about decompressing and designing shoes with girlfriends that makes for a great night. Try it for yourself. In the meantime, why not do a little workweek unwinding of your own?
