The ladies of Sex in the City had it right. They always found time to catch up on each other’s lives while enjoying martinis, Swedish massages, boutique shopping, and epicurean dishes at their favorite restaurants. While you may not have as much time as Carrie, Samantha, Miranda and Charlotte had to spend together, you can follow their lead on August 1st, National Girlfriends Day, and celebrate these important friendships.
If one day of celebration isn’t enough for your gal pals, why not extend the celebration with a girlfriends’ getaway? Just imagine a weekend with your besties where you will be pampered with complimentary champagne toasts, decadent chocolate desserts and relaxing spa treatments for the whole weekend.
