Whatever happens in life your girls have got your back. We all need some QT with our BFFs every now and again, so this summer make like Thelma and Louise and go on an adventure (without the criminal activity and fugitive action.)
A Day at the Races
Glamming up, big hats, bigger heels, fizz and gambling. Spending Ladies Day at the Races is where it’s at. Throw in a chauffeur driven stretch limo for ultimate bling status.
Tips: The ultimate Ladies Day in the calendar is at Royal Ascot, . A carnival of glamorous and often outrageous fashion. This is an event that every girl squad should experience at least once. Visit www.ascot.co.uk for details.
Re-Re-Wind yourself back to the noughties because Garage Brunch has landed and it’s the new way to get down, while you chow down.
Garage Brunch does what it says on the tin. The website calls it a “2 course meal and all of the best of UK Garage music in one BOOMIN’ day party!” – not forgetting the bottomless hour of the event’s signature rum cocktail that’s included in your ticket.
Tips: You won’t find out the venue until just before the day of the event (previous spots include London’s super amaze Café de Paris), doors open at midday, which is when the bottomless hour begins so get there early. Find out more at www.garagebrunch.com. Bo!
This one combines the best music from Ibiza (with a Classical twist) and the great UK love of dancing in a field. Classic Ibiza offers a fab alternative while Glastonbury takes a break this year, with the best Ibiza anthems played by a classical orchestra and a Live DJ at some of the UK’s most beautiful stately homes.
Tips: Take a picnic, a big blanket and hang around to enjoy the laser show at the end of the night. Tickets can be bought in advance or on the day but are expected to sell out. Visit www.classicibiza.co.uk for full details.
Like Netflix and Chill but outside under the stars. Outdoor cinema is more popular than ever and you won’t need to look hard to find a venue with a big screen near you. Sundown Cinema offers screenings of your favourite chick flicks in stunning settings around the UK – including La La Land, Breakfast at Tiffany’s and of course, Thelma and Louise.
Tips: If the weather looks iffy take an umbrella and some warm layers because they only cancel screenings in extreme conditions. Get the girls together, arrange for each person to bring a dish and a few bottles, and you will have yourself the perfect night out. More information is available at www.sundowncinema.co.uk
Regroup, Unplug and Detox
How often do you manage to get your girl squad together without life getting in the way? Sometimes the best remedy to a busy life is to escape it altogether. Detox Retreats are an increasingly popular way of hitting the reset button. Taking a friend with will allow you to enjoy some quality time together while you rejuvenate.
Tips: Find a mutually convenient date and look for a retreat style that suits everyone. Some retreats specialise in health, fitness and rejuvenation – we really love the cool and luxurious Life Lab Retreat which has locations in Norfolk and Marrakech.
Other retreats call you to the ocean and include a spot of surfing, digital detox and meditation, like Drift Retreats which run in Jersey and overseas throughout the year.
Wherever you choose, a retreat is all about taking some ‘Me’ time, and why not do it with your besties? Remember though, this isn’t a party getaway, and be prepared to switch of the Wi-Fi while you are there.
