Our Story

“I started the Girls’ Night In newsletter in 2017 when I was experiencing a period of intense burnout and needed a creative outlet to explore what it means to take care of ourselves in an age where most of us are overwhelmed and just barely able to do the bare minimum.

Being able to to share the things bringing me comfort and joy during my ‘nights in’ helped me connect with thousands, then hundreds of thousands of readers around the world who also felt a deep desire for rest, taking care, and embracing comfort.

Over the years, the newsletter has grown and evolved into a cozy and comforting corner on the Internet loved by many readers.  What started as a small newsletter focused on my recommendations and night-in favorites quickly ballooned into a growing audience and platform, all focused on a topic that could use a bigger spotlight right now: downtime.”

-Alisha Ramos, Founder at Girls' Night In

At Girls’ Night In, we celebrate downtime in all its forms: restful, playful, quiet, low, creative, private, shared.

We’re the pulse of the group chat. We’re the friend who sends an article, idea, or internet discovery and wants to discuss it. We’re curious curators, who love sharing findings and sharing in conversation.

In short, our mission is to help you live a happier, slower, and more joyful life. Let's be friends.
