Yea I Said It... FRIES OVER GUYS ! It's the week of Valentine's Day and if you don't already have anxiety about it - your a psycho lol. Its the time your either on the edge of your chair praying to your fairy godmother your Instagram crush finally notices you stalk their page and doesn't think your a creep or your leaving hints to your bae on where he should make the dinner reservation. Both situations are equally dope but I've got one better for you.
GALENTINE'S DAY !
As Lesile Knope (Amy Poehler's character on Parks and Rec) once said, it's only the best day of the year. And, well, she's right. Basically, it's like Valentine's Day but instead of spending a romantic candle lit dinner with your lover it's celebrated on the 13th of February with your best gal pal's. Galentine's Day is definitely BFF goals (single or not) and it's the time to really celebrate your relationship with your lady friends ! Now Ms. Knope traditionally celebrated this occasion by starting of with a brunch - waffles and mimosas. Cool ass holiday when we can properly give recognition to our normal Sunday routines...BUT it's so many other ways we can praise ourselves and our girlfriends. Here's a few last minute ideas to seize the day:
Make a badass playlist dedicated to your girls (i.e. Where My Girls At -702)
- Like 2-Chains says Pretty Girls Love Trap Music but I prefer a little something more woman empowered.
Adult Slumber/Lingerie Part
Grab all the girls and have a sexy night in with games, facials, and some juicy gossip
Take your Gal Pals out on a Mini Shopping Spree/Gift Exchange
Set a budget and Secret Cupid it. Shop for your friend or let her pick her own gift and just swipe. Make it a mall trip, down the road is Lenox Square, Phipps Plaza, or the beloved Shops at Buckhead :)
Get gussied up and have a night out on the town. Can't go wrong with cocktails and a great conversation. Just make sure to pinky promise no drunk or sober text to your significant others and take lots of pictures #LeaveHisAssOnREAD
Netflix and Chill
- Stop by your local grocery store or Ponce City Market and choose from a variety selection of meats and cheeses. Grab a bottle of wine or two and have a magical night binge watching your favorite show with your favorite people
No matter how you decide to celebrate just make sure to have fun. Let go of your work week and any relationship drama. Not only is this day about friendship but also about you. Remember best friends will always be there before & after any other relationship. Your best friends serve as your fresh pair of eyes, shoulders to cry on and even a kick in your ass most likely when you need it the most. Let's here it for the GIRLS !
