Girls Trip Do's and Don'ts
If you've been on a few girls trips, then you've probably experienced one that didn't quite go as planned. There's always someone who complains about how the rooms or how much everything costs. And sometimes there's that friend who plans the trip minute-by-minute and leave no room to rest and recover (guilty -- but I've learned!) Here are a few of my favorite girls trip do's and don'ts to help you make your next bestie getaway a trip to remember (in a good way! lol). ________ Join me on my journey of figuring out this thing called life on Instagram @purelypicturesque.
