Put your hair down

It doesn't matter what you're doing — when the girls are all together, it's sure to be a good time. Here are five ways to turn it up a notch.
Women in limo

If it's been too long since your last girlfriend getaway, enter the Live Louder Dance Off for your chance to win the Ultimate VIP Weekend in Las Vegas. All you have to do is upload a video of your best, standout dance moves! If you're going to plan a party all your own, use one or all of these five fun ideas to make sure your night out is one to remember.

Get dolled up

Getting ready is almost the best part. Whether you're clubbing in Vegas or simply barhopping in your hometown, you want to look your best. You never know when you'll bump into Mr. Right Now. If it's in your budget, go all out! Hit up a drybar, get your makeup done, the works. It's not every day you get to play pretty woman. If you'd rather save your money for cocktails, gather all the girls and get ready together at your place while sipping Champagne. It'll get you all into the party mood.

Enjoy a booze cruise

Unless you're within walking distance of everything you want to do, splurge on a limo (plus, this way there's no concern for drinking and driving). The fun doesn't have to wait until you arrive at the bar — it can start on the road! If you all split the cost, it can be affordable too. So pack your favorite drinks, crank up the tunes and let someone else do the driving. Can you think of a better way to roll up in style?

Blue crushSip signature drinks

Hopefully you'll be offered a round of drinks from some admiring gentlemen while you're out. Instead of a complicated drink order, come up with a signature cocktail that you all enjoy. For example, the Blue Crush — it's girly, fruity and, with a cute name like that, how can any guy resist?

Tip: Heels are so much sexier than flats, but your feet will kill after dancing the night away. Pack Dr Scholl's For Her Fast Flats in your clutch for quick relief.

Get your groove on

Now that you got the girl talk out of the way in the limo, it's time to bust a move. Do your homework and find a bar or club in your city with the best music, depending on what you like. Of course make sure the crowd is your style, too.

Game on

That's right, play games. Even if it's not a bachelorette party, getting silly with your girls can be a blast. Fake a British accent while you're out, or complete a scavenger hunt — the fun doesn't have to end with dancing. Another fun idea is to ask every girl to choose a food (or drink) they've never tried and have the limo take you to a restaurant offering each new cuisine or cocktail.

Whether celebrating newfound singledom or the fact that your bestie is getting hitched, there's no better time than the present to let loose with your gals.
