Fifty Shades Darker is Almost Here!

This post and the Fifty Shades Darker event detailed within it were done in partnership with Universal Pictures.

This Valentine’s Day, slip into something a shade darker. Fifty Shades Darker to be exact. Jamie Dornan and Dakota Johnson are returning to the big screen as Christian Grey and Anastasia Steele in the highly anticipated Fifty Shades Darker film, set to release just before Valentine’s Day. Fifty Shades Darker is the second film based on the bestselling “Fifty Shades” book series.

Picking up where 2015 blockbuster’s Fifty Shades of Grey left off, a wounded Christian attempts to lure Anastasia back into his life. Christian’s past comes back to haunt the couple, threatening to destroy their future together. Hitting theaters on February 10th, the movie is already creating a buzz among circles of women. My group of friends just had a ladies night in to celebrate the upcoming movie, which we all plan to go watch together the night it comes out!

Fifty Shades Darker Masquerade Party

At our recent Fifty Shades Darker Masquerade Party, us ladies shared appetizers while we sipped Masquerade Mojitos (recipe below) and wine, including a bottle of Fifty Shades of Grey White Silk wine. We had some fun in our makeshift photo booth with our masquerade masks and everyone took home awesome goodie bags! Goodie bags included copies of the Fifty Shades Darker book, cosmetic bags, shirts and lip balm.

We are all so excited to catch this next installment of Fifty Shades! Most of us have read the books and have seen the first Fifty Shades movie, so we’ve been anticipating seeing Christian and Ana take to the big screen again. Our local theater is premiering the movie the night of February 9th, so we already have a ladies night out planned!

Masquerade Mojito Recipe

Print Recipe
Masquerade Mojito
This is a fun twist on a traditional mojito. Typically, mojitos have sugar or simple syrup as a sweetener, but for me using champagne instead of club soda adds enough sweetness. If you'd like a bit more, try adding the agave nectar in step one!
