It’s true! The verdict’s out! Research has proved a weekend away is so good for the soul. With your girlfriends it’s ‘bees-knees,’ ‘heart-sing’ material!
We’re lucky to get away once or twice a year with some of our closest girlfriends, including one-another, some local, others interstate. It gives us the opportunity to connect without the distractions of everyday life, and yes, we admit, indulge in a little food, wine and shopping). For those we don’t see on a regular basis, it’s like we’ve never been apart. Even though we may not have spoken for months (we keep up to date via text and social media), we pick up from where we left off. We’re truly grateful for these connections, particularly for the joy and sanity they bring.
It’s not just about catching up with friends. It’s also the opportunity to recharge from day to day life. That doesn’t mean that we need to lie down for a whole weekend. Although, let’s be honest, sometimes the idea of booking into a hotel and not talking to anyone for 48 hours is rather appealing – has anyone tried that? Just getting away, doing something different, having a looooooong, leisurely breakfast and being inspired by new and creative things, means we can come back rejuvenated and ready for the next installment (even though sometimes this feeling only lasts about 24 hours – but hey it’s a great 24 hours).
That’s our 2 cents worth. If you still need convincing you deserve a weekend away with your girlfriends, check out these clips and articles:

If you’re feeling the need to get away, you’re in luck! Style Liberation is hosting another Ladies Weekend in Melbourne Friday 21st October to Sunday 23rd October. We’ll be running 4 shopping sessions, each based on a different theme, plus hosting a cocktail event on the Saturday evening. You can join us for 1, 2, 3 or all 5 sessions, depending on what works for you. Places are strictly limited. We’d love to take everyone, however, there’s only two of us and we want to make sure that each of you receives the special attention you deserve.
