Laura Oduntan, 37, and her friends - Jade Bassett, 33, Remi Pedro, 37, and Agnes Adekunle, 38 - decided to spice up their regular hangouts.
Karaoke? No. Bottomless Brunch? No. An international spa trip? Ding ding ding.
Laura, a mum of two girls – aged three and six – had spotted the QC Terme spa in Milan, Italy, on TikTok and told her friends about it.
And the rest is history.
Shortly after, the mums were on a 6.20am flight to Milan Malpensa Airport, costing around 118.47(£62) for return as well.
As soon as the women landed around 9am they took the train to lunch before living it up in the luxurious spa for three hours.
They finished up with dinner and Aperols at a rooftop restaurant before jumping on a 10pm flight.
The best part? Laura was home by midnight and even managed to drop off her daughter at school in the morning.
It turns out we really can have it all.
Laura, a social media manager and owner of the 5am mama, from Bromley, Greater London, said: “I thought let's upgrade our Nando's trip.
“It was a long tiring day.
“But there was so much laughter and fun.
“The spa was just lovely.
“I still had to get up for the school run the next day.”
The mums all met while working for Direct Line group seven years ago and have been having regular catch-ups ever since at Nando’s.
As much as I love roasted chook, an Italian spa trip for $40 (£20.94) is certainly the way to go.
They took a train into Milan city centre for €13 (AUD $21.49 or £11.25) and found a café close to the spa for lunch - which ultimately cost around €15 (AUD $24.80 or £12.98).
The friends headed over to the spa at 12.30pm and stayed there for three hours before heading to an earlier dinner at Duomo di Milano.
At a rooftop restaurant, they had pizzas and an Aperol spritz for €20 (AUD $33.06 or £17.31) each.
Laura said her friends enjoyed the trip so much they might even make it an annual thing.
“We said we would make it on an annual thing and try and go to different cities,” she said.
“See different cities but go for a day.”
Offft. I definitely like the sound of this trend.Featured Image Credit: SWNS
