Aside from going to work, going to the gym, trying to find “the one”, and finding some “me time”, we can never forget to spend some time with our girls! GNO’s are usually the way to go, dressing to the 9’s and heading to a bar or club and getting sloppily hit on by men who are not, nor will they ever be, in your league. The following morning usually includes a hungover brunch #OOTD including sunglasses, a hat, and a mimosa or five.

Although these are great memories for bonding with your babes, there are other activities that don’t require you to give out a fake name and fake number - I know, right? From high tea to mani/pedis to yoga with the girls, we live in a world where the activities are endless. If you want to feel sexy and free while also getting an excellent workout with the girls, why not try pole fitness? Yes, we’ve evolved to the point where pole dancing doesn’t have a negative stigma on it - LADIES, IT’S SAFE TO GET ON A POLE (unless you lack in upper body strength, then it might not be the safest to go all out on your first try, but you get what we mean).
