The problem is  your check has magically disappeared but the weekend hasn’t it so you’re in a little bit of a bind. Well, well no need to fret or worry there are tons of free and fun things you and your home girls can do to have a blast without paying a dime. So I see you think I’m lying huh? Ok, that’s fine …time to prove my point!

budget3Glam Night– Girl talk, manicures, facials, and good music…sounds like the perfect nails right?? Well all of that you can do in your own house. One of you and or your girlfriends pick a place where you guys can have a fun girls night sleepover. Enjoy doing your nails while watching all of the gushy teen chick flicks you can find and let loose. Create a music mix for girls night in and it’s the perfect way to end a stressful school year!

Festivals- The weather is definitely heating up  at a rapid pace, it’s time to enjoy the outdoors still before it’s too late. There are still tons of Summer festivals that take place all around.

Museum Madness- Yes, being cultural is a very fly characteristic! Discovering art, culture, music and traditions will allow you to extend your mindset and open your mind to new possibilities. All museums atleast once a month where admission free. So go ahead and mark that date on your calendar and get lost in the museum for a day!

Well gather your girlfriends and trade different fashion an beauty goodies!Pick out different beauty products that hasn’t worked for you and fashion items that you never wear and bring them over friends house and got to town! Invite 4-5 girls and you will be surprised the selection you will have. Just like shopping!

 Arts & Crafts – Yes, I know you’re not in elementary school anymore but who said arts & crafts are just for kids?? Take those old pair jeans and  change it to a skirt or that old sweatshirt to a cute little headband. Not into sewing??
