5 Reasons to get your Girlfriends Together for a Night Out

5 Reasons to get your Girlfriends Together for a Night Out

We know there is nothing better than getting together with your favourite girlfriends, putting on a fancy new frock and heading out the door for the night. A girls night can come in many forms, a few drinks at the newest gin bar (check out Style Magazines list of Brisbane bars) or a night at the movies watching the new flick Girls Trip. But, our favourite girls night out is one filled with fashion, champagne and fun.

We’ve put together 5 reasons why you should pick up the phone and organise your next girls night out.

1. It boosts happiness and reduces stress

Research suggests that a night out with your girlfriends will increase happiness and reduce stress. It's even been suggested that socializing with people of your gender can help boost your immune system and help get rid of that pesky winter cough that has been lingering. A night off from your regular duties to relax and chat to your girls is a huge tick for your well being.

2. Drinking champagne may be good for you

A recent study also revealed that drinking a glass or two of champagne may help prevent dementia and Alzheimer’s. The study even suggest that up to 3 glasses a day could help improve your memory. We didn’t really need a reason to drink champagne but if it’s for our health…

3. Brisbane Lights of Paddington Fashion Night

On Friday the 6th of October the Brisbane Paddington shopping precinct is putting on a fabulous night of fashion, glamour and fun. Paddington’s Latrobe Terrace will light up with fun, fashion and glamour in a spectacular runway fashion show on a purpose built catwalk featuring the who’s who of local fashion identities. Be treated like a VIP on the red carpet, with gorgeous sparkling wine, delicious canapes, plus lucky door prizes.

Tickets are limited, make sure you get in quick and purchase a bunch for you and your girlfriends.

4. Show off your new spring frocks

It’s the start of a new fashion season and we can’t think of a better way to show off that new spring frock you purchased last week. Or maybe you have had your eye on a dress in the window and are looking for the perfect reason to make it yours. Spring is our favourite season and this could be because we simply love floral prints and retro inspired dresses or perhaps it's because the weather is perfect for wearing dresses that twirl in brightly coloured prints.

5. Friday is late night shopping in the CBD

Maiocchi City Store Open Late Night

Combine your girls night out with an evening of shopping. Our Brisbane city store is open until 8pm on Friday nights. This means you can pop into the store and say hi to the girls, try on the latest spring fashions and end the night with dinner and drinks overlooking the Brisbane river at Eagle Street Pier.

What are you waiting for? Leave the kids, partner and dogs all at home, grab your girlfriends and come and celebrate spring with us at the Brisbane Lights of Paddington Fashion Night. xo
