Any woman – whether she has children or not – needs time off of life. Time away from work, time away from family and just time to let her hair down and reconnect with her true self. A girls’ night out? That’s an essential part of self-care. However, a girly weekend is something that you have to do at least once to relax in each others’ company and enjoy life a little bit.
When you’re a parent, you need a weekend off more than anything at least once a year, which means that you have the perfect excuse to plan one! So, all you need for this adventure is your girlfriends, a passport (maybe) and the money to get somewhere. Let’s take a look at five girly weekend ideas that you and your friends will love!
Spa Weekend. An obvious solution to a break from motherhood is a spa weekend. Not only can you gather your girlfriends together and have an amazing time, but you can also get that back and shoulder massage you’ve been craving. Time to let your hair down and sit by the pool (or swim in it) is one thing, but being pampered is quite another!
Afternoon Tea & Theatre. Pick your nearest city and find the poshest hotel for afternoon tea. Arrange to meet the girls there and book yourself into the same hotel for the night together. Keep your own room – you’ve not got the children, so sleep is on the menu. Once you’ve had your afternoon tea, go along to the theatre together and make it a true ladies night.
Weekend At The Winery. A weekend in a beautiful winery, sipping the wines and learning how it’s all made? That’s heaven on a plate. So, get some Naked Winery wine facts down you all and make it a fun and informative time away. You can all get a little silly and relaxed when you visit wine country, and when you’re armed with facts the whole adventure will be a fun one!
Theme Park Weekend. One of the best ways to get rid of a ton of built-up stress is to scream it out on a theme park ride. Book the hotel with the theme park and you can easily spend two days acting like big kids again. There is absolutely nothing wrong with heading onto roller coasters and enjoying yourselves, having a huge slumber party and then doing it all over again!
It’s The Climb. Feeling adventurous? You need to get your boots on, then! Head to the national parks and get climbing the mountains there. Hiking is a great way to lose a few hours together, and it’s good for you. Afterward, head to the local campsite and make ‘smores and tell spooky stories around the fire.
You can enjoy a weekend of indulgence, relaxation or thrills. Whichever way you do it, take the time to spend it with friends. As long as you and your girlfriends are having a good time, you’re doing it all absolutely right!
