As soon as we turn our calendars to the month of February, the first thing people think of is Valentine’s Day and celebrating romantic love with your significant other. While some people enjoy Valentine’s Day and a chance to have a special date night, there are others who aren’t big fans of the holiday. This month we’re going to switch things up a bit. Instead of focusing on Valentine’s Day, we’re going to talk about other ways we can show our love this month, whether it’s honoring yourself and practicing self-love, or spending a day to celebrate the love we have in our female friendships.
Valentine’s Day is coming up this Tuesday, but let’s not forget about the lesser-known holiday that comes the day before: Galentine’s Day. This holiday was popularized on the Parks & Rec tv show a few years back, and ladies have taken to the holiday to celebrate the female friendships that make our lives so much better. As the character Leslie Knope from Parks & Rec puts it, “It’s only the best day of the year. Every February 13th, my lady friends and I leave our husbands and boyfriends at home, and we just come and kick it, breakfast style. Ladies celebrating ladies.”
Galentine’s Day is the holiday we didn’t know we needed, and it might as well be a real holiday. It’s the perfect excuse for brunch, self-care and mimosas with your favorite ladies by your side. You can make it into a fun party with the besties and have an at-home girls spa day complete with all the best self-care products to leave you feeling relaxed and refreshed. Set up a mimosa bar, order a charcuterie board to snack on, set up a nail polish station, face masks etc. Make sure to bring out the RENEW nighttime face oil to finish out the night of pampering to leave everyone’s skin glowing in the morning. If you want to leave everyone with a goodie bag to take home, stock up on some REVEAL daytime face cream and REPLENISH lip balm for a special treat for your friends. Parks & Rec’s Leslie Knope would definitely approve of a woman-owned small business after all, so opting for products from women-owned businesses would definitely fit the theme of a Galentine’s soiree.
This month make sure to take some extra time to show yourself some love too. We often get so swept up in taking care of everyone else in our role as mothers, wives, girlfriends etc. It’s in our nature as women to constantly be caring for the people we love, but you cannot pour from an empty cup. Make sure that you are taking good care of yourself too, because you deserve the same love and compassion that you show others. Take a day to do something that brings you joy or helps you relax, whether that’s booking that massage you’ve been needing or trying out a new class that’s piqued your interest. Make space in your busy schedule to do something for yourself, because you deserve it. Show yourself the same love, grace and kindness that you give to your best friends. Be mindful of the words you choose when speaking about yourself or your body, and don’t hold space for negative thoughts about yourself.
