Smart Girls aren't mean girls! If you're gonna throw an Amy Poehler-approved slumber party, you need to expand your inner circle. Try inviting someone you'd like to know better! You never know, "you may end up with a new Smartie for your posse."

Step 2: Be adventurous with your snack options.


Waffles are great but why not try something new? Amy recommends mini Pavlovas. Originally developed in New Zealand to honor the Russian ballerina Anna Pavlova, this meringue-based dessert is easy to make and perfect for a slumber party.

Step 3: Turn your snack into a delicious cocktail.

Amy's got a great tip for Smart Girls twenty-one and over: mini Pavlovas can be turned into a fruity cocktail! Just blend together some Pavlova, strawberries, kiwi, gin and ice.

Step 4: Remember that girl talk doesn't mean gossip.

Talk trash about the media, not each other! Tell everyone to bring a news story to analyze and work together to identify news bias and inaccurate reporting. Improving your media literacy is way cooler than spreading rumors.

Step 5: Don't be afraid to ask each other difficult questions.
