Tips For Your Girls Trip (From MY Girls Trip!)
by Robin mcgraw
Hola, Secret Squad!
As I mentioned on the podcast recently, I took a “girls trip” to Cabo and we had the MOST AMAZING time! Taking girls trips are so important because it helps to strengthen our relationships with the people that we care about, and there really is nothing better than spending quality time with your girls!
Here are some of my favorite moments from our IGAS trip to Cabo San Lucas! I hope you can use some of these fun ideas for YOUR next Girls Trip! Tag me in your photos! Xo
Pick a Destination!
Half the fun of planning a girls trip is choosing the destination! Something fun I like to do with my girlfriends is have each of us write down a place we want to visit and then put them all in a bowl. Then we pick one out to decide where our trip will be! It makes things even more exciting!
A Signature Drink
In my opinion, no trip is complete without a signature cocktail! Upon arrival in Cabo, we were all greeted with the most delicious pink tequila martini… not to mention also an entire mariachi band! You can see the video on my Instagram!
We called these cocktails our Cabo Martinis, and they were a favorite for the entire weekend! The girls and I spent our days sipping on these gorgeous drinks while sitting by the pool. I don’t think I’ll be able to have another pink drink without thinking of this trip! I even recreated the recipe here so that you can make it on YOUR next girls trip!
Now, here’s a little secret about me: I am SUPER detail-oriented and love to plan, especially when it comes to hosting a trip! So while I was planning Cabo, I knew I had to do something fun… and what’s more fun than matching pajamas?!
All of us girls wore these ADORABLE striped pajamas every day of the trip. We practically lived in them! It was a ball wearing our matching pajamas to breakfast every morning, and it made the trip that much more special. Now when we wear these outfits at home, it reminds us all of the fun times we had together!
Pack a Deck!
I LOVE to play cards, so I make sure to always bring a deck with me on a girls trip! Phillip and I have been playing card games for forever and it’s a great way to pass the time. One of my favorite games is Spades because everyone can play together, but the possibilities are endless!
If you haven’t guessed, I LOVE a theme! We planned a White Party for the last night of our vacation, and it was a huge highlight! Everyone dressed in all white, we brought white decorations with us, and we really went ALL OUT! This gives everyone something to look forward to and plan an outfit for, and the photos are just too adorable! Think of something that really goes with the trip: nautical night, disco fever, Hollywood Glam… there are so many ways to go with a theme night!
It’s always sad when a vacation is over, but a fun way to commemorate the trip is by making everyone their own photo album! I take SO MANY pictures, so it's fun to look back on them and pick the ones that best represent our trip! I love a photo album because it's a physical representation of all the fun memories we made together, and these days it's SO easy to put one together online!
