The Galentine’s Day Essential Guide!

Hey gals! February 14th can be a tough day for some people (especially those who haven’t found that special someone) and more or less, NOBODY should be feeling down on this marvelous day created on the basis of love, hugs and kisses! Fear no more, because I am a single gal like many and I am going to tell you some of my favourite ways to celebrate this Galentine’s Day!

There are sooo many reasons that I could list in order to highlight the benefits of being single, but why would I do that when I can give you a list of AWESOME activities to make you love yourself and let the fact that all your friends are on romantic dates fade away!? This is a day to be cheerful and celebrate those you love, and most importantly YOURSELF!

Rom-Com Movie Marathon (featuring your body pillow)

Have you got yourself a body pillow? If you don’t, you should run over to Costco and pick one up because it will honestly change your life. One of my favourite Galentine’s Day traditions is a rom-com movie marathon! Yes, you are watching people fall in love while you are pigging out on popcorn and chocolate…but almost always, the leading male is nothing less than attractive beyond belief…so that’s a MAJOR Galentine’s Day plus!!

Here are my oh-so favourite Galentine’s Day classics:

HOW TO LOSE A GUY IN 10 DAYS

SOMETHING BORROWED

THE NOTEBOOK

HE’S JUST NOT THAT INTO YOU

THE VOW

VALENTINE’S DAY

Round up your Gal’s

There is nothing better than showing love to your best gals! Instead of holing up in your room, go out and have some fun! There is nothing better than a night full of fun, dancing and belting out lyrics to your favourite song at the top of your lungs! Better yet, if you don’t feel like hitting the town, you can always go for a chill dinner (but beware, reservations will need to be made).

Send yourself Flowers

Before you scoff at this idea…try it. It’s pretty satisfying. There is nothing wrong with either sending yourself, or going to the store to grab some pretty flowers for your home office or bedroom even! Flowers brighten everyone’s day, and trust me, looking at whichever is your favourite flower is a pick-me-up in any situation! (Fun Fact: My favourite flower is the pink rose).

Treat yourself

Whether it’s allowing yourself that marvelous “cheat day” or splurging on the latest Kate Spade handbag (we all have that one in mind), you deserve to show yourself how much you appreciate…well, yourself! There’s nothing more #girlboss than celebrating the one and only…you! I will be eating only the finest Lindor chocolates, kicking back thinking about my lovely reading break!

No matter how you spend it, at the end of the day…it’s just another day of the week! Like I said before, nobody should be feeling blue on such a pink day! Kiss your dog, grab a box of chocolates and turn on a Channing Tatum flick (sounds like a great night to me!).

Happy Galentine’s Day, my girl bosses!

(almost!)
