Have you lost your Mummy Mojo?

If so, one of the best therapies in life can be a weekend away with your girlfriends (kid free of course). A couple of wines, loads of laughter and maybe a massage or high tea - can do wonders for the soul! There are some fantastic hidden gems in Sydney, where you can escape to with your besties to recharge your mojo. Here are 5 of our favourites:

1. Watsons Bay Hotel - Watsons Bay

After you have checked in, you can head straight downstairs to the Beach Club at the hotel, and imbibe in a few glasses of bubbles or a good old Pimms and lemonade. When you need something to eat, you can choose to order some of the hotel's gastro fare, or head next door to the famous Doyle's Restaurant.
