Where my GIRLS At!!!!!
New in: Galantines’ Day — Presenting Galantines’s Day as February’s Friendsgiving. It will no longer be an exclusive, “couples only” holiday. Being single or in a relationship shall no longer determine the events of your Feb. 14. So gather your girls, because it’s their time to shine.
With the new year comes new resolutions and new outlooks on life: the common goal of “bossing” up. What if you took all the girls you love, the incredible ladies sitting on your couch on “wine Wednesday” and “Saturday’s are for the girls,” and celebrate them. Yes, every day should include some appreciation towards your friends, but there’s no reason not to take it to the next level. That is where Galantines’ Day comes in. Girls night just got revamped. Whether you celebrate with one bestie or 20, make Galantines’ day like a birthday party, minus the birthday. It’s your day, and theirs, it’s about a whole lot of love. It’s that simple.
Those chocolate boxes lining the isles of every supermarket in a 50 mile radius— grab ten, because who better to spoil than your best friends? Society, for so long, has been fixated on the luxury of a romantic, heteronormative valentine’s day. Now, celebrate your friends as if they were your significant other; after all, couldn’t you consider them to be so? A candle lit dinner perhaps? Done. Gifts of flowers and jewelry? Done. Those diamond earrings would look incredible on your go-to-gal.
There are so many different ways to celebrate your friendships: try out a new recipe in the kitchen or get dressed up for a boozy brunch at that aesthetically pleasing cafe you’ve all been wanting to try, but can’t seem to find the time for. It can be a pamper day at the spa, or even a white elephant gift exchange. The specifics are as important as you want them to be.
With ordinary, everyday responsibilities swirling around you in your day-to-day lives, take a night, or a day, or even a galantines’ weekend and show those girls some love! Not only do you deserve it, but so do they.
