Even though Witches of East End has a great cast, I was a bit worried I wouldn’t be able to enjoy the series. I was, and still am a big fan of the series Charmed. I thought for sure I would be consistently comparing the two. Well, I’m almost finished watching season one and am happy to say I was wrong. Witches of East End is a well put together series, and completely stands on it’s own. And, for the record – it’s much darker than Charmed. I’m really enjoying it, and am hoping to complete the first season before the preimere of season two on Lifetime 7/6.

Witches of East End: Season 1 on DVD is available to purchase now on Amazon.

The above love story + an evening alone with my girls + the below party pack courtesy of Universal Home Entertainment = one fun girls night viewing party!

endlesslove_party_001

I love that my daughter’s are old enough to share in my obsession for movies. Anytime I can get them both to commit to a “movie night” makes me happy. Our most recent “movie night” started with a nice dinner together, followed by painting our nails a romantic pink (included in our party pack). It was so much fun! I had no idea how much laughing can be involved while painting someone’s nails. We then got comfy and indulged in pink cupcakes and strawberries while watching Endless Love on Blu-ray.

We knew we were in for a good “chick-flick”, but the movie was much better than I expected. Exciting and emotional. I don’t want to share any spoilers, but can tell you it’s the perfect choice for any “girls night” in. Especially if the girls staying in to watch are teenagers.

It was a romantic pink covered viewing party for sure. Even our basset hound, Foxy Roxy took part in the evening.
