What is better than dozens or roses, a box or chocolates and a candlelit dinner? Ladies celebrating ladies!!! So, ditch all of the lovey-doveyness on Valentine’s Day and celebrate February 13th instead because it is…Galentine’s Day!
I think we can all agree that Leslie Knopke could not be more accurate. Your best girlfriends are just as much your soulmates as your significant other and honestly, they probably put up with your crazy self a lot more than your boyfriend does. So yes, you can dedicate February 14th to your special man friend if you so wish, but you MUST dedicate February 13th to your girl gang!
Yes, I can read your minds. I know exactly what you’re thinking…how should I celebrate my best gal pals?? Well, the pressure is on ladies but lucky for you, we have some ideas for y’all. It is time to drop everything and start planning for the best day of the year!
Whether you’re in over your head with classes or work, everyone needs a little bit of time to wind down, and there is no better way than to do that with a girl’s day at the spa. Facials, massages, mani pedis, and a little bit of gossip is the best way to a have a man-free day with the ladies.
Boys will be boys, so it’s highly possible that you may need to blow off a little steam before celebrating Valentine’s Day with your special other. So, get all of your gal pals and head over to SoulCycle, Barry’s Bootcamp, or Corepower for the ultimate workout class that will let you sweat out all of the frustration your S.O. may have recently caused you. Then, treat yourselves to a Galentine’s brunch with some Egg’s Benny and a whole lot of mimosas!
Who cares if Galentine’s Day is on a Wednesday?? Turn on Miley Cyrus’s one-and-only GNO, sing your heart out, dress to the nines, and go paint the town red with your sisters from another mister!
Personally, my go-to Galentines celebration is the classic all girls dinner party. Galentine’s Day is the day your girl gang really deserves to feel like the queens they truly are! So, to have the absolute best Valentine’s soirée to ever exist, go overboard with the pink peonies and decorations, pop open some bubbly, throw together a charcuterie board, and have everyone bring a dish they love (almost as much as their girlies)!
Well, happy early Galentine’s Day from SMUStyle! We <3 every single one of you!
