February is the month of love and we all know loud and clear about lover's day AKA Valentine's day which is coming up on the 14th of February, Tuesday this year. This day is celebrated for and by the couples to celebrate their love and appreciation for each other in a dreamy, shiny, and lovely way. But February is also a month that celebrates love not only with respect to romantic relationships but also self-love, self-care, and celebrating friendship that helps us through when love gives us a hard time.
Galentine's day is the perfect getaway and excuse you need to celebrate female friendships over love. Often celebrated on the 13th of February (A day prior to valentine's day), it is the best day to celebrate your bond with your girl besties, no matter how happily single, dating, or in-between relationships they may be in. This day is all and only about parties, bathroom glam diaries, lots of food and drinks, and fun. If you are aware of what Galentine's Day really is and are wondering what you can do to make this nice and fun- you are at the right place! Read till the end of this blog and find our suggestions for the extra special G-Day of the year!
Having a girl squad is like having full makeup, hair, and fashion crew together. They all have different ways we like to do their makeup- some like to go for a full face of makeup for a ‘makeup-no-makeup-look’ while some, wear a little concealer, blush, and eyeliner to feel like they overdid themselves. To spice things up and have more fun try going for a glam swap that is, doing each other's hair and makeup for the day! This is the most fun and innovative way to experiment more out of your comfort zone. Make memories as you do your favourite thing together- dolling each other up. (A lot of trust goes into this process so even if your friend messes up, you know you can get revenge back at them;)
LOVE IS RED
Who said valentines day hampers were only for the romantic interest of your life? The love, care, and bond one can share in friendships is one of the world's most unique and fulfilling feelings. Many times we shy away from sharing what we truly feel for that person- but Galentines is all about treating your girl besties like the queens they are, and thus, should be given all the royal treatment to make them feel like one. The Love is Red hamper by Fluorescent Studios is all things red and all things necessary for your girl bestie. You get a Body shop shower gel, a red aroma candle, Zara perfume (yes, a queen can never forget her fragrance), a Red scarf (as a memoir of your true bond), Heart-shaped delicious cookies (2 nos), a Greeting card of your choice, and a Reusable Fluorescent signature box which can later be filled with the goodies, photographs from memories you will make together in the future.
PAINT A CANVAS
For this idea, you need to buy two canvases, some paint colors, and brushes. The idea here is that each of you would get 15 mins of time to paint a drawing and then swap it with your Galentine date and then continue painting with their sketch. Every 15 mins you will be swapping your canvases until your inner Picasso feels satisfied with the final outcome. You do not need to ‘know’ how to paint to have fun. You can either choose to spoil your friend's painting or make it look prettier; either way, it is going to be a lot more fun, satisfying and peaceful experience of memories.
Talking about a girl's night out and not including drinks is like talking about going to a buffet and coming out with an empty plate. We all can agree to the fact that the most awkward to-do things and memories are the ones made with your girlfriends, knowing these are things you wouldn't normally do. Such moments and memories happen only with like-minded people who think and act exactly the way you do and such equations should be celebrated with elements that exactly describe them the right way. The Cosy Cocktail is all about Decorative wine glasses (set of two- yes, they are fancy and fun), a Brass photo frame, a Lindt chocolate bar, a Greeting card of your choice, a Reusable cane basket that can be used for future picnics and storage.
There is nothing better than strong, fierce, independent female friendships. The sister-like bond you get to share with that person is sometimes all you want to get a detox from the troubles of life. Make this Galentine day special with your girl besties and have a blast around, having nothing to worry about in the past or the future.
