Our top picks for spending time with your friends this Feb 13.
Haven’t heard of Galentine’s Day yet? Well, it started back in a 2010 episode of the show Parks and Recreation (very funny, we highly recommend). Amy Poehler’s character gets all her girls together to celebrate the joys of female friendship on February 13th. Fast forward to today, and the holiday has taken off amongst ladies in the real world as a great excuse to treat our besties, and ourselves, to a good time! Besides, anything even somewhat endorsed by the amazing Amy Poehler is good to go in our books.
Our go-to for Galentine’s would definitely be a girls’ trip! Time away from it all with our friends, even if just for a weekend, is just the boost we need to shake off the dull greys of winter. And don’t think you need to head too far out – there are several great retreats in the city or near you where you can spend some quality time in the water. Think spa dates, saunas, or hot tubbing!
Try our Spotify Galentine’s Day playlist for road trips, or just hit shuffle in your living room and get ready for a mini dance party with your girls!
Need packing inspiration? We’ve got you covered, whether you’re known as the sweetheart in your friend group or a notorious heartbreaker.
Classic V-day colours: Red, pinks and purples. Think cinnamon hearts and pink frosting, but keep things fresh with of-the-moment designs, like square necklines and high waist bottoms.
You’re a bit of a wild child, and your friends know it! They’ll love you in hot reds with orange undertones, strappy one pieces, or a leopard print like this bikini (recently spotted on Bella Hadid).
