Why You Should Be Celebrating Galentine's Day...
You're probably sitting there thinking "what the hell is Galentine's day" and rightly so, until about a year ago I had no idea what it was either so allow me to explain;
Galentine's day takes place a day prior to Valentine's day (February 13th), and is all about you and your girls celebrating and embracing one another. If you've followed my channels for some time, you'll know this is so me! Only last week I tweeted I wanted to get together with my girls for this special occasion, so when PrettyLittleThing reached out to me to create this post for my female readers, I was like HELL yeah!
Personally I feel that sometimes us women are underappreciated, whether it be from our colleagues, family, partners etc we can sometimes go unnoticed. A day like this is great for us women to just celebrate each other regardless of our relationship status. I'm single (get the violin out) and can often feel lonely especially around the most "romantic" time of the year. With great company and activities, we don't have to feel like this however (no seriously).
Below I've compiled a list of things for all my gals to try this Galentine's Day, from nights out to nights in... Hopefully one of the below will inspire you.
// To Party or Dine?
Well I guess this is the most obvious point right? But where? That's always the question. You've done it ALL before but have you done it for Galentine's Day? Probably not! When planning group outings I love to create whatsapp groups and ask for suggestions first. I then take it to OpenTable or Design My Night for the best outings in London. Always works a treat and you end up getting props for being hella organised!
Tip: Roses are red, violets are blue... It's Galentine's Day and I've got a treat for you! If you're heading out to dinner and there's an even group, why not do a Galentine's Day dip? Something similar to a secret santa. Roses, perfume, makeup, clothes... All gifts are welcomed haha.

My Top picks...
// Netflix & Pamper
My friends will probably read this like "ok so this point is so you!" haha. It is indeed. I'm obsessed with skincare at the minute so would jump at this option in a heartbeat. Put that Netflix subscription to good use and put your favourite face mask on. I'm all about natural ingredients so would personally whip up a banana, oats and honey mask to put some moisture back into my skin. It's cold out in these streets!
// Play Dress Up & Have A Karaoke Sesh...
Okay so another one of my favs! Who doesn't love to play dress up and sing there heart out to their fav Mariah Carey/Destiny's Child tunes? I actually did this last weekend with my mum haha. Honestly, I went to bed feeling so happy and content with life. Invest in a microphone, invite the girls over, dress up, sing your hearts out and live in the moment. Times like these make the best unforgettable memories.
