"Maybe some women aren’t meant to be tamed, maybe they need to run free until they find someone just as wild to run with.” - Carrie
Craving for a rather wild night out with the girls? Been a mom for the longest time, and finally you have time to yourself? Then, we think you’ll appreciate a wild night out with the girls. The nanny is here, she’ll watch the kid’s let’s go Nancy! We’re gonna have mad fun! Living young, wild, and free, okay let’s not get ahead of ourselves maybe not too wild, just enough!

They serve amazing European foods, offering burgers, slap chips, sandwiches and light meals. So, for that extra fun time with the girls make sure you check this place out.

There’s plenty to do around the city, the nights are always young and so are you.

Okay okay, sometimes some of us want to be homebodies and the thought of going out is pretty tasking so we choose to be indoors, because comfort! And chilling with the ladies in our pjs for all the homebodies sounds more ideal, and saves some of that coin too. Sometimes, you want to leave the guys at home, get your girl gang together and just have a night out on the town… are you nodding along? Great, but where to go? Check out our top picks!
This is something my friends and I enjoy doing because we get to see girls in beautiful dresses walk in welcomed by of course a handsome bachelor, and we already pick our favourites and hoping that they make it to at least meeting the parents and even get married. To make it even more fun, we like betting on who is going to win the bachelor’s heart, so quick money you see.
Okay now that the kids are at their grandparents place we think it is well deserved for us to head to Susan's house because we all know she has plenty of wine and we could just order some pizza because YOLO! OMG we are such rebels.
I don’t know about you ladies, but I am always motivated to stand up and cook when my friends come over at my place, and it’s always amazing when we try out new recipes together. This is also said to be one of the biggest contributors to a stronger bond.
So, we’ve all had a long day and what we really want to do is get home, link up with the girls and just be lazy together. Do our nails, toes, and even a massage or two. Slice up some cucumbers, get that avo masks and face scrubs ready. Turn on the volume to that calming music, I prefer Jhene Aiko’s music. It’s time to reboot and restart ourselves.
Some board games would do, especially if you are the competitive bunch. It’s always good having a child-like kind of fun and just having a good laugh with the girls. Plus, we know we all need a laugh or two because adulting is pretty hectic so having innocent fun can make one’s day.
