Givetoyourself.com provides women with details on the top girlfriend getaway packages around the country, including featured amenities, special girlfriend package components and pricing. The user-friendly Web site makes it easy to find the perfect girlfriends escape.
The primary reasons for women getting away are to bond with friends and leave their responsibilities at home to "refuel" themselves, according to Cavallari.
"Women benefit immensely from escaping their everyday personal and professional responsibilities and bonding with female friends," says Cavallari. "The important first step is giving yourself permission to take that much needed and well-deserved break."
Cavallari is the author to the must-read Official Girlfriend Getaway Guide, which provides you a quick and easy approach to planning a fun-filled, relaxing, and rejuvenating girlfriends' getaway.
