Get the girl gang together...

Now that winter is over we can say goodbye to chapped lips, hard nipples, slathering yourself in moisturiser cream like you're icing a cake, UGG boots and snuggies and hello to Spring sunshine. 

In our opinion there's no better way to get yourself out of the winter haze and motivation to sort your sh*t out and get everything waxed than with a sneaky girls weekend on the coast. 

So pack your bags and count down the minutes until you'll be relaxing, chatting, laughing so hard you wee a little, eating and drinking a few to many wines which inevitably ends with Karen realising (again) how much she "like really reallly luvs, u guys, no like seeerriously yous r the bestest."
 
But there's a few things we need to address before you're breathing in that sweet salt air. 

 

 - Location - Where to go -

Aussies are spoilt for choice, being surrounded by beautiful places. Destinations are endless from 1770 Agnes Waters, Hamilton Island, Palm Cove, so many places so little lotto wins.

Our destination this weekend - Yeppoon and the superb Salt Apartments.

Being located in prime ocean viewing position, the 4.5 stars accomo is a perfect treat for you and the girls. And once you've had your dose of taking in the views, take a dip in their sleek pools, duck across the road to Yeppoon's main beach or stroll down to the Yeppoon Lagoon.

So you're going to need some sustenance to keep you going through all of this and luckily there are plenty of great restaurants, cafes and bars close by that you can stroll to and roll out of, get your morning caffeine fix or end the day with a few cocktails. Spots like Vue Wine Bar  ||  Lure Living  ||  Flour  ||  The Strand  ||  The Rocks just to name a few.

Wanna spend an arvo eating and drinking? Check out the new kid in town, The Citrus Club for fresh eats with a Mexican flair, creative cocktails and not to mention their Insta worthy decor.

 

Or maybe you just wanna Netflix 'n' chill in your room. Why not ditch the popcorn for a gorgeous platter and mix a few cocktails to sip on while you kick back.When it comes to cocktails keep it simple. Here's a few easy recipes that look pretty delightful to us.

But hey, in the end no matter how you spend your weekend away, you're spending it with the best kinda people.

- Spring Style - What to pack -

Forever the dilemma, unless your planning on spending the weekend at a nudist beach.

When it comes to swimwear - plain or single coloured swimwear is in and of course you can't pass up a fun floral for Spring.

Pool side || A couple of style tips on a few of the pieces :
  -  Seafolly Freshwater One Piece (1st from left) : has a intriguing textured fabric & the square neck shape is running hot this season.
  -  Sunseeker Portabello High Neck One Piece (2nd) : a new shape introduced last season and was a real winner on diverse range of body and boob types.
   -  Seafolly Essentials Bikini (3rd) : Seafolly have released this great little capsule range at a great price. Top $49.95 and bottoms $49.95. Also comes in this amazing green colour (Jungle).
  -  Seafolly On Vacation Bikini : Another winning bold print and colour combo from Seafolly. Check out the whole range of shapes and the other colour combos including pinks and lime greens.

As for clothing - Linens are still a big feature this season. At Soaked we are all about natural and light weight fabrics, perfect for tropical temps.

Once you've taken care of not being naked all weekend, next is hair and make up, cause we all know selfies are on the cards. If you're off to the coast, like the girls, we'd say keep it effortless, fresh and natural. Ain't no point spending your days away in front of the mirror looking at your mug when you could be looking at the views. Think nudes, soft pinks & peaches, a touch of bronzer for that golden glow and highlighter to finish off that fresh "I've been on a lux Island holiday getting daily massages by a topless hot guy for 2 weeks" look.

And if you're in on the obsession - do pack your fav new hair clip for that touch of girly glam.
