Ideas for a grown-up girl's slumber party:

WHAT TO DO

Sip wine, receive at-home facials and pedicures, snack on sushi.

WHAT TO WEAR

Victoria's Secret Pink and Aerie from American Eagle are loungewear collections that were originally targeted for college students that are finding a wider -- and often older -- audience.

The lines include fleece pants, leggings, tank tops, T-shirts, henleys and hoodie sweatshirts. The emphasis is on comfortable fabrics and cozy styles, but the idea is that they look enough like street clothes so one could dash off to the coffee shop in the morning.

DECADENT CHOCOLATE DRINK

Godiva Truffletini

Mix 1 ounce chocolate liqueur, 1/2 ounce white chocolate liqueur and 1/2 ounce caffeinated vodka (such as p.i.n.k) in a cocktail shaker with 1 cup crushed ice.

Strain into martini glass. Garnish with chocolate truffle.

WHAT TO DO

Entertainment Weekly executive editor Lori Majewski suggests movie (or TV on DVD) marathons centered on these themes.

"Girl Talk" with "Sex and the City," "Kissing Jessica Stein," "How To Lose A Guy In 10 Days" and "My Best Friend's Wedding."

"Teen Time" with "Beverly Hills 90210," "Pretty in Pink," "Clueless," "Mean Girls" and the one and only season of "My So-Called Life."

"Sing-Along" with "Grease," "Xanadu," "Chicago, "Little Shop of Horrors," "Selena," "That Thing You Do" and "Grease 2" (but only bust out "Grease 2" after a few drinks, Majewski advises).

"Cry Me a River" with any and all Meg Ryan movies, "Titanic," "The Bridges of Madison County," "Something's Gotta Give," "The Lake House" and "Somewhere in Time."

BEST REASONS FOR A GROWN-UP SLEEPOVER

Women like to know they're not the only ones going through a work problem, a health problem or a relationship problem, says Josey Miller, iVillage.com's relationship expert.

"We women put an enormous amount of pressure on ourselves, and we're often too close to situations to recognize when we're taking on too much. Other women are our cheerleaders. They remind us that we don't need to be more, do more or give more to become strong, capable, loving and loved individuals. We're already all that and more.

"Women understand the need to vent, the need to gossip -- basically the need to be girly. Women are incredibly compassionate, sensitive and nurturing in our daily lives, and after all that giving, we tend to crave reciprocation of those qualities once in a while. Only other women can truly fill that void."
