The best thing to get you through the working week is knowing a sun-filled long weekend is on its way! Whether you want to chill out or party hard, we’ve come up 3 ways to make it the best 3 days ever, and everything you’ll need to be prepped and ready.
1. Road trip!
Round up the girls, pack the car, and get on the road! A long weekend is the perfect opportunity to head off on a classic road trip with some of your favourite people. Road tripping is a great way to bond with your friends, your partner, or the fam, and see some great sights along the coast.
Here are a few things you’ll need before you jump in the car and ride into the sun:
A driving essential! Sunnies are a must-have for the road, and for all of your beach town stopovers. Protect your eyes with some gorgeous sunnies by El Roy Eyewear.
If you’re sitting in a car all day, you’ll need to be cool and comfortable. Light day dresses are perfect over a pair of swimmers, or consider some soft shorts and a T-Shirt.
Get yourself an oversized beach bag to fit everything you’ll need along the way. Look for something that can fit a towel and a sweater!
2. Cocktails with the girls
When you’ve got 3 whole sunny days to embrace, why not treat yourself to a cocktail or 2? Hit your friends up for an afternoon of drinks at your place, for your very own outdoor cocktail party. You’re going to want to be prepared and feel super stylish, so here's what you'll need!
Find a dress that makes you feel confident and chic – something you can pair with your favourite heels and look great in for the pics.
Why not pick up some new bling for the occasion? Statement earrings are a huge trend right now and perfect for Springtime events! Keep it fresh and bright, to match those delicious cocktails!
Once you've got your outfit sorted, make sure to pick out some funky Springtime decorations for your party. We suggest cute banners, straws, and cocktail stirrers!
3. Ultimate me-time
If you’ve been non-stop for weeks, then you’re probably looking forward to doing absolutely nothing for 3 whole days! This is a great time to take a step back and look after yourself. Here are a few things you’ll need for the perfect self-indulgent weekend:
Draw a hot bath, get the soft tunes playing, and light a candle. It’s not officially me-time until a candle is flickering – you have to tell your mind and body that it’s time to chill out!
With so much extra weekend, why not take the time to look after your skin? Pick out a facemask that hydrates your skin, and cleans out all of those imperfections that have built up during the week.
Now that you’re feeling calm and rejuvenated, take some time to plan out the weeks ahead, and note down anything you’re feeling in your time of relaxation. Journaling is an amazing way to clear the mind!
