“We’re going to be staying up late, drinking, making memories that we can laugh about for the rest of our lives, because that’s what a girls trip is for.”
-Dina aka Tiffany Haddish “Girls Trip”
Yes hunny I couldn’t stay it any better. I am coming back from a bomb ass trip ! Excuse my language but I have to be really honest about how I am feeling. I just got back from Washington DC… the nations capitol. This trip was one of the best experience that I had so far. Now I did not get a chance to check out the monuments and all the others stuff but I had a another chance to bond with my girls… my sister ! #tripsandrisk
We have been traveling together for a few years. Greek picnics, Atlanta, Toronto… and now DC. I really needed this trip because I was really burnt out at work. The same thing everyday is so tiresome and you really start to lose it…. lose your sanity and the essence that make you a fun person. I really looked back at my life and I am like I really not enjoying it like I should. I am 28 years old and I can’t say that I really did anything ! So yes DC trip with so super fun ! We were out there living are best lives. Getting ready to go the hottest clubs, take long needed naps, eating great food, and just bonding. people can’t say they have that with woman.
Girls Trip is Self Care..
Have you just taken a good look at your life? We as black women have so much going on.. either we are packing lunch, planning launch… and pattin’ weave ( like Amanda Seales said). Literally we focus so much time on other people and things and none on ourselves. So with that being said let hit the road with your most closest friends. Research shows that hanging with you girlfriends can help increase your overall health and well being. You get a chance to relax, and lose a little control in a good way. Girlfriends are good for the kid !
Stigma of a Girls Trip..
Being around women in a car for more than 4 hours can be too much for some women. Is it really a lot of drama. I can say I was conflicted about girls trips but it definitely has been perfected over the years. Spending times with these women more than 4 hours and being in close quarter you really get to known them even more. So its really good experience. I believe you get the right people together, learn each other, and communicate effectively you have an awesome girls trip. Think about making fun memories and experiences is medicine. I love talking about the trips and the things we done after the fact. It literally make me feel so good. These are things that I can cherish for the rest of my life!
Why Girls Trip are Needed?
Judgment Free Zone: You get the right girls to hang out with no one really cares about what you do or the random guy you kissed the other night. As long as your safe and you accounted for that all that matters. So it judgement free zone.
Well needed relaxation: When I’m on a trip with the girls I feel like I am not getting any rest because it literally long night every time. However I catching up on being relax and calm. While they are napping I am catching up on reading, or just mental stability.
Talk about Guys: Open forum about guys are so much fun ! Like we feel comfortable opening talking about guys, their shenanigans, if they good in the sheets or not… etc!
Honesty Box: You can open about what going in you life. Express feelings with women who know the struggles. You are free to be honest and vulnerable
On the Fashion Tip
My Favorite Looks on the Trip
2 days of Slaying with the same sandals !
First Look: Rebdolls Red 2 piece set
This was my first two piece set I ever had and its in red. OMG I gave salsa mami in this picture. I love this piece so much because it was daring. Also this set took me out my comfort zone. The material alone was very nice and thick.

First of Rebdolls comes thru with the looks and the set. I love the fact that the sets you can buy separately. The way my body is set up I am smaller and the top and heavier at the bottom. So I need a smaller size at the top. Also you can mix match different pieces.
Second Look: Forever21 Tank Dress
I literally have this dress in 3 others colors. This dress makes my life so complete. You can dress it up or down. This dress does my hourglass frame justice. Also having a little black dress is essential to put in you bad when going on trips.

So with all that being said check up on yourself. Evaluate what going on in your life and take some time for traveling. Traveling is self care ! We all need time to get away from our surroundings. Get with your closest friends that are loyal and set up some time and place and payment plan.
