Girls Getaway Guide News
I cannot believe it is already April.  Time really does fly when you are having fun!  Mother's Day is just around the corner, so be sure to check out the article below for fun gift ideas.  There are tons of fun events and happenings coming soon, which are highlighted in the Upcoming Events section.  
We want to hear from you!  If you have photos from your Girl Getaways, email them to for posting. 
Don't Forget Your Favorite Girlfriend - Mom 

Mother's Day is May 11, so don't wait until the last minute to find a gift for the special mother in your life.  Whether she is your mom, grandmother, wife, sister, aunt or friend, a girls' getaway is the perfect gift, especially for those who want to give her something unique that she will enjoy and remember.  Here are a few suggestions:

Help Her Fulfill Her Dreams - Find out what she has always wanted to do, maybe learn to sail, surf or belly dance?  Maybe she has always wanted to take a cooking class, salsa lessons or ride in a hot air balloon.  Find out what she has always dreamed of doing and make it a reality for her!

Plan a Girls Getaway or Girls Night Out - Give the special mother in your life something to look forward to, like a fabulous girl's getaway.  Plan a shopping vacation, wonderful cruise or a local weekend retreat.  For those busy women who cannot getaway overnight, plan an all girls dinner date or book a yoga or pilates class for your special someone and her friends.

Send Her to Get Pampered or Plan a Makeover - Every woman enjoys time at the spa.  Purchase a gift certificate for a massage, facial, manicure or pedicure.  Give her the opportunity to indulge in the ultimate relaxation.  A makeover is also a great gift for the mom who doesn't have a lot of time for herself.  Make an appointment for her to consult with a beauty expert, buy new make-up and get great beauty tips.If she has small children, offer to babysit and send her out for the day, evening or overnight.

Girl Getaways Success Made Simple

On March 19, I was interviewed on the online radio show "Success Made Simple with Sharmen Lane."  We covered all you need to know about your next girl getaway. 

Sharmen Lane
Sharmen has personally gone from being a manicurist to millionaire. She is an author, speaker, radio host, and life coach. She has trained, managed, and coached thousands of individuals on what it takes to get what they want. She currently has several seminars, including The 7 Secrets to Success, Success Made Simple (easy as ABC), the 3 C's To Success, The 3 Keys to Success, to name a few.
I had a wonderful time chatting with the Sharmen. She is a fabulous host and a true "girlfriend." We covered several topics relating to travel, and I shared a few of my personal experiences - the good and the bad.  Thank you Sharmen for a fantastic conversation!

Bachelorette Party "Getaway Girl" Style  

Just like Las Vegas - what happened at the Bachelorette Party stays at the Bachelorette Party!  We had a fantastic time celebrating the last few weeks of Carly's life as a single girl.  We stayed at the fabulous Swan & Dolphin Resort at Walt Disney World in Orlando.  Who says Disney is only for families?  We started the weekend with a sushi dinner at Kimonos and ended up staying there for the karaoke all night.  Saturday was a full day of R&R as we lounged by the three-acre grotto pool and the white, sandy beach.  After a delicious meal at the resort's new seafood restaurant, BLUEZOO (thank you to Stella and Rochelle for the special service), we headed to downtown Orlando.  After dancing the night away and getting just a few hours sleep, we all departed Sunday morning wishing we could live the resort life forever.

Thank you to Pat Engfer, general manager at the Hyatt Regency Orlando International Airport, for making the connection for us.  A special thank you to the Swan & Dolphin Resort team, including Kye Montalvo, Peter Kacheris and Don Engfer for making our stay absolutely wonderful with their exceptional service and VIP treatment.  I cannot thank you enough for going above and beyond to ensure an unforgettable experience at your resort.
