3. Prove that Beer Trolleys are the new booze cruises.
There is now a way to keep the pre-game going while en route to your favorite bars in Chicago and other cities across the country. Look for your local Beer Trolley company to up your pregame, throw a grand old party, or just do something different with your evening. Bring a selfie stick for this one to capture the whole crew on board.
4. Get back to basics: A hike and a picnic, not just for lovers anymore!
Find your favorite local trail and get back into nature. You can make it a work out (hello yoga pose pics) or just enjoy some summer sun with your besties before it gets all pumpkin spice and riding boots. Pack a picnic of cheese and wine or even get it delivered with an on-demand delivery companies like Schlep & Fetch. Their team is fast, efficient, and they’ll deliver whatever whenever.
5. Missing the summer olympics? Host your own…drinking olympics that is.
Flip Cup, funnels, and the classic, beer pong. The list goes on. Team up with your friends and get creative with your uniforms for a backyard course of drinking games. This will be a day full of beer, fun and sun…and of course hilarious photos and videos.
6. Our Name is ____ and we are Winos.
Keep yourselves together ladies but yes, there is now a new app and that helps you find the closest winery to your exact location. VinoWine App shows all the closest wineries to you on a map, which will make it super easy to plan a fun girls’ day out amongst the vines.
8. Fake a bronze
We have posted how-to videos from experts like Charlotte Tilbury before on getting a pretty glow and the long weekend is the perfect time to practice! Use Tilbury’s Filmstar Bronze and Glow or Palladio Cosmetics’s Baked Bronzers so that even if you’re not spending the weekend in the sun, your selfies will look like you did!
9. Celebrate a lazy Sunday
I am all about the lazy Sunday all year round, but it never seems to actually happen! So this weekend, carve out time to sleep in and then lounge about for the morning. Throw on this PPLA baggy shirt, pour yourself a cup of at-home Starbucks iced coffee (a new – and amazing – offer from our favorite coffee brand) and dive into one of these awesome summer reads. Then post an “I woke up like this” shot to remember.
