Embracing galentines this February

As the month of love passes it is evident that more and more, women are embracing a shift away from traditional Valentine’s Day customs and focusing on celebrating the connections they have with those they are closest to – their ‘galentines’.

In fact, the endorphins generated from an evening out with your bestie or group of friends are immense.

Here are a few ideas to spark the idea bank when next you’re planning a galentines get together:

Bestie Brunch

Start the day off right with a delicious brunch spread and a gaggle of gorgeous mates. Whip up some pancakes, avocado toast, or indulge in pastries from your local bakery. After all, nothing says love like a belly full of good food accompanied by great company.

Dance Therapy

Silent discos are all the rage but let us not forget a simple get together to let loose and bust out your best dance moves. Try out the aptly named ‘Best Friends’ playlist for maximum enjoyment. It’s a fantastic way to bond, burn calories and have an absolute blast!

Glam Squad

Transform your living room into a makeshift salon and indulge in some glam time with your gal-entine squad. Set up a makeup station complete with mirrors, brushes, and your favourite beauty products. Don’t forget to include a wash and blow station using the newly launched shampoo and conditioner range from Shower to Shower. Their Shea Butter & Milk Extract Shampoo and Conditioner makes the ideal add on for a pre-party hair revival! Plus, it’s the perfect opportunity for an impromptu photoshoot to capture the glam.

Mates Movie Marathon

After pampering yourselves, settle in for a cosy movie marathon featuring the best chick flicks. Whether you’re into classic rom-coms like The Notebook or action-packed adventures like Mr and Mrs Smith, make sure to have plenty of popcorn and snacks on hand.

Divine Dessert

It might seem cliched to invite your mates over for a kitchen-related activity, but give it a try. Nothing says ‘I love you bestie’ like creating a delicious dessert together with good music to set the scene. Settle in for a long-overdue catch up whilst you devour your heavenly creation on the couch.

As Leslie Knope from “Parks and Recreation” famously said, “What’s Galentine’s Day? It’s only the best day of the year.” So, let’s make every day a Gal-entine’s Day and celebrate the power of love and friendship throughout the month!
