Valentine?s Day is quickly approaching, and whether you?re in a committed relationship, just started dating someone, or are single and ready to mingle, throw those basic Valentine?s Day traditions out the window and try something new this year. It?s called Galentine?s Day. Instead of moping around wishing you had a significant other, or out trying to get a date, get a couple girls together and go out for a night on the town, or stay in and eat, drink, and relish in each other?s awesomeness. We?ve compiled a short list of the number one things to do for Galentine?s Day to help get you started in planning with your girls:
Clubbing: Gather at a friend?s house all together and beat those faces with your best makeup, try on seven different outfits, and make sure you all are slaying when you step outside that night. Find out which clubs are doing Valentine?s Day specials (usually drinks, or ladies night ? hello free entry!) and go tear up the dance floor with your girls. Nothing will make you feel less alive, euphoric and loved than dancing the night away with some of your closest girl friends.
Cigar Lounge: Pool up some money between you and your girls and go all out and get some customized Galentine?s Day cigars and go check out a cigar lounge. There?s some really cool ones in Hollywood that have amazing drink deals that can be paired with the cigars you?re smoking. There?s cigars for purchase available at most cigar lounges as well if you happen to smoke out all your cigars before your night ends. Cigar lounges are typically filled with men as well, so who knows maybe you?ll get a Valentine out of your Galentine!
Night in With The Girls: It?s time to Netflix and chill with your best gal pals. Go all out for this soiree; rent or buy a fondu kit and melt up some chocolate and set out some marshmallows, strawberries, bananas, and brownies for dipping. Spice it up a little and get some matching lingerie together, who?s going to give you the best compliments besides your girl friends? Make the night even more enjoyable by watching some good old slasher movies ? our top picks would be Halloween, the original and the re-make, Evil Dead, the re-make, and Shaun Of The Dead. Okay, so that last one isn?t really a slasher movie, but it?s so great and guaranteed to give you and your girls a good laugh.
Movie Date: All my girls know that Mr. Grey is heading back to theaters for Valentine?s Day again this year. Get your posse together, hide a stash of wine in your purses, go to 7-11 to get your favorite snacks and candies and meet up at the theater to watch Anastasia and Christian duke out the things you?ve only fantasized about. Then when the movie is over, go treat yourselves to some delicious sushi and sake bombs. Might need a taxi for this Galentine?s Day event, ladies!
The possibilities really are endless for your Galentine?s Day adventure, but these are just some suggestions to help get you started. Don't let other couples make you feel less about yourself this year. You?re intelligent, independent, and beautiful! Now grab your girls, get started planning, and, above all, treat yo? self! Happy Galentine?s Day!
