Research says that it is absolutely necessary for women to hang out with their girlfriends often. If nothing else, treat these hangouts and night outs as therapies. There are times when we would probably like to dress up a little or maybe dress down a little, and feel elated about meeting up with girlfriends or people who make me feel comfortable in my own skin.
Recently, I went to the Wednesday Ladies Night at NYX Lounge and Deck at Hotel Palacio, Guwahati. This was truly an eye opener, as in many ways, it was way better than most night outs I have been to in other metros in India. Within just a few months of its launch, NYX Lounge and Deck has set the bar high for other high-end hotels in the region. Creating the right metropolitan environment, ladies on Wednesdays couldn’t be happier with free cocktails, such as Dead Women Walking, Pink Lady, Princess of Nyx, Ladies Driver and Peach T-NI.
It was pleasantly surprising to see people with various backgrounds coming together. Some were studying abroad, some were from other metropolitan cities outside NE, while some were back in town to make this place flourish, and enjoy themselves thoroughly. A few even confessed that they didn’t miss Hauz Khas Village at all, because that was the exact same vibe that Nyx gave them. The music was spot on, drinks were plentiful and delicious, and the environment was eclectic. It was a perfect evening with beautiful and powerful women letting their hair down mid-week, destressing and re-energizing for a power-packed week ending at work.
Also, it was delightful to see mothers who looked ravishing and enjoyed every bit of the evening, busting myths that motherhood brings restrictions. Bottomline, it wasn’t just a ladies night, but a little bit of inspiration wavering here and there, a little bit of letting lose, a little bit of destressing, a little bit of catching-up and a lot of happiness and energy bubbling in the right ways.
The world is harsh anyway, so why not let your hair lose now and then?
Here’s why you SHOULD meet your girlfriends often:
- To laugh
- To dance
- For some one-on-one time with either yourself or with your girlfriends.
- To wear that pretty dress
- To be true to yourself
- To make that Instagram or Facebook update.
- To de-stress
- To let everyone and the world know: TO HELL WITH YOU AND YOUR DRAMA.
