When the working week and family life get the better of us, nothing beats spending time with a close group of girlfriends.

They get you, they have your back, and good times are guaranteed whenever you’re with them.

Here’s our top 5 things to do when you’re with your favourite group of people:

1.     Brunch

Call it cliché if you will, but who doesn’t love good food and good company?

Australia is blessed with an enormous amount of great cafes and eateries, so there’s always a new location (and more food) to discover when you want to have a catch-up with the girls.

2.     Clothing swap

You’d be hard pressed to find someone whose wardrobe did not have a bunch of things they did not wear, especially women!

Instead of letting these barely-worn items take up valuable wardrobe space, grab your girls to collectively look over everyone’s ‘unwanted’ clothing.

You’d be surprised what you may find, after all, one Mum’s trash is another Mum’s treasure.

3.     Movie night in

Sometimes, you just want to stay in, and let’s face it, being out and about all the time can be tiring.

Grab your favourite rom-com, horror flick, or comedy, and settle in on the couch together with your friends with some popcorn and chocolate (in your pyjamas!)

4.     High tea

There are times when you want to relax in track pants, and there are times when you want to dress up and hit up some place fancy.

A grand High Tea setting, like the national High Tea Party series, is the perfect way to catch up with girlfriends.

The best part? Not only will you be treated to high tea and bubbles, the event also includes boutique shopping, beauty and complimentary pamper stations.

5.     Working out

Exercising with girlfriends; whether it’s going for a run, or taking a pilates or yoga class, is a great way to stay disciplined and stick to your work out routine.

You’ll be having fun and keeping your body fit and healthy, everyone wins.
