With the recent US first box office smash hit featuring a full lead cast of melanated Queens in Will Packers’s Girls Trip (which grossed in excess of $100 Million!) Yes, you may come up for air now! It was duly fitting that I bore homage to this wonderous time in film history and embarked on my own, first all female girls trip. I joined my homie since school days and her two pals for an extended weekend trip to South France in Nice.
We stayed in a beautiful mansion house separated by individual maisionette apartments close to Promenades Des Anglais, which sat amongst the hill top of Nice, overlooking the city below, complete with it’s own lustrous lemon tree in the garden – Where we spent most mornings admiring the sunrise and morning dew atop the outdoor decking and evening meals under the parosul drinking the sweetest wines of France’s bountiful vineyards and talking way too loud and way too late into the night. At times hearing the grunts and hard window closing fracas above us as we chit chatted our way through countless discussions ranging from men, love, family, to relationships and career goals. There was laughter, singing and tears, mostly tears of joy though.
We made the most of our short stay by fitting in trips to Monaco and Cannes, sampling the beautiful beaches, food and eye candy on offer. The nightlight didn’t disappoint either with an array of clubs and bars around the old town and strips, there’s something for every cheri so do dress to impress because your Cheri amour may just be around the corner of a Louis Vuitton boutique.
I left feeling refreshed and tanned, ready for the next adventure. As girly trips go, it was a gooden and I will definitely be embarking on another girly trip very soon. As a top tip, I highly recommend taking a trip to Nice with your gal pals or partner and be sure to stay at the five star Carlton Intercontinental, which overlooks the beautiful beach in Cannes and is only a stones throw from all the luxury boutique stores, super yachts and hot spots in town, especially during the Cannes Film Festival. So until next time, Bon Voyage!
