(BPT) - It’s time to put those booties away ladies – it’s officially sandal season. With longer days and warmer weather, you and your girlfriends can share laughs and stories under clear blue skies and beautiful starry nights.

Glamping – glamorous camping – has been named one of the five hottest trends in girls’ getaways by the Travel Channel and is the perfect warm weather get-together to bond with girlfriends. If hectic work schedules make coordinating a getaway with girlfriends too hard, you can still enjoy the warm days and nights by recreating the glamping experience in your own backyard. Here are a few tips to create a posh outdoor experience:

* Keep the ambiance cozy. Turn your outdoor lounge space into cloud 9 by overflowing the space with the plushest pillows, blankets and throws. Nothing rivals a good laugh with the girls while snuggling in the softest blankets. For extra “twinkle,” add candles or a portable fire pit. For added ambiance, have your girlfriends send you one or two songs to be compiled into the perfect playlist - you can even turn it into a game by guessing who recommended which song.

* Host a paint party. Your nails will be getting a lot more face time in the warmer months, so make sure they have a fresh spring coat. Pinterest is a great place to look for new color trends and nail art inspiration to try.

* Indulge in treats. A girls’ night always calls for decadent treats. The SKINNY COW brand makes indulgent frozen snacks and candy treats that are insanely delicious yet ridiculously sensible. Dress up the traditional s’mores campfire dessert by swapping in SKINNY COW Candy Dreamy Clusters for an added bonus of crisps and caramel. For those hotter nights, keep cool by enjoying decadent SKINNY COW frozen treats, like their new Chocolate Mousse Ganache Cones.

* Create the perfect picture backdrop. Camping naturally provides a perfect background for pictures - so when you are glamping in your backyard, create a fun glamping-themed backdrop to take pictures against. You can even get creative and make props for guests to use in their photos and create a hashtag to track all the glamp-tastic photos that are uploaded from the night.

If you and your girlfriends are looking to actually get away this summer, the SKINNY COW brand is giving you the chance to have your own glamping experience with the “Girls Gone Glamping” promotion.
