Essential: Girl-Getaway

19 Sep

Happy Wednesday Lovelies,

Part of living a well-balanced life includes investing in healthy relationships that are genuine, help us grow to become better people, challenges and all. My bff treated me this summer to a Girl-Getaway in Chicago during the week which I especially enjoyed because I am not a fan of weekend crowds. We had the time of our life. We did the essentials girls love to do, shopped until we dropped, happy hours, hair treatments, etc., but the most of important part of it all was that we spent quality time together, and here are a couple of things we enjoyed while in Chicago.


Lunch at Mimi’s Cafe


The skyscrapers of course

Leaving a store without purchasing anything which rarely happens.(please excuse the red eyes we used an iphone to take the photos and removing the red-eye turns them grey and I don’t have grey eyes although it would be nice).

Garden art

And drinks at Howl At The Moon after hair treatments, and wearing our new blouses we purchased that same day because we couldn’t wait to wear them. My friend’s style is very flirty resort which I could never pull off. I keep telling her she is living in the wrong state and needs to move to Florida, but if she did I would probably follow.

I am truly blessed to have such a great friend(s) it is essential for me to make time for them, now if I could only do a girl getaway more often.

Until next time,
Monica

      Ikr!!! I’m thinking it is essential at least once year, remember we used to do it when we were single?
