It’s February time for shops to be playing love songs on repeat, stocking the shelves with boxes of chocolates and heart felt greetings cards. A time for restaurants to be fully booked with tables for two. A time for the internet to fill your inbox with offers and reminders to tell someone you love them … Of course, we are referring to Valentine’s Day.
Traditionally a day of love, time to exchange cards and gifts anonymously to a person interest or show your love to a significant other. Love is typically in the air for love birds across the globe on 14th February with romantic dates and dinners often becoming part of the celebrations.
Sure, a little bit of love and a bit of romance is always nice on Valentine's Day but what about those who are single or just want to give the romance a bit of a swerve?
It a pretty hard task to avoid the spattering of love that surrounds us in the approach to ‘V Day’ making it a little tricky to boycott Valentine’s day all together. If only there was another way to join in the feeling of love without a traditional Valentines style date?
Why not make it a bit different this year and make it your own … celebrating with you closest friends?
Whilst Valentine’s day has been celebrated for centuries, ‘Galentines’ day is the new kid on the holidays block. What started out as a concept on American sitcom Parks and Recreation, in 2010 has now become a celebration with females all over the globe.
Celebrated the day before Valentine’s Day, Galentine’s Day as it suggests, is a day to spend with your female friends celebrating friendship and having fun. Round up your entire girl squad or that one BFF and appreciate each other and celebrate in style … it would be rude not to.
Here’s a few suggestions to get you in the mood for planning your girl’s day.
Go for brunch
Start the day early and make the most of it. Get the day off to a great start with amazing brunch, make sure you search and make the most of those Valentine’s Day restaurant offers … who said couples should get all the good food deals anyway?
Let’s be honest who doesn’t love a movie marathon? An excuse to watch your favourite films back to back, snuggling on the sofa with snacks and your friends. Whether it be something to make you laugh or cry a movie marathon could be just what you need.
It’s something they always do in the chick flicks, something you always want to do but never get around to doing it. Today is the day, make the most of your day together … pull out those face masks you seem to have been collecting forever, paint those nails, pluck your eyebrows and spend sometimes looking after your skin after all that where flawless starts.
Why not take the skin pampering one step further and experiment with your own DIY face masks? Whether it be a moisturising mask, a creation to fight those blemishes or providing your skin with a well-deserved nourish of goodness the options are endless using humble ingredients found in your kitchen. Pampering your skin and getting creative at the same time, what more could you want?
Go out out
We all need to let our hair down from time to time and what’s better than a night out with your girls? Whether it be a cheeky visit to the pub or a night of dancing, get on your best outfits, get glammed up and get ready to dance the night away.
You love your best friend and only want the best for her right? Please don’t let her waste that perfect pampering session by using a dirty makeup brush whilst get ready for your girls’ night out.
