Sometimes, we ladies are portrayed as sad women in desperate need of a man’s love. Boo-hoo! But we forget what beautiful, strong, and independent women we are. And that we are capable of achieving great things in life, without depending on someone else’s love. Give yourself the most wonderful gift of all - the gift of yourself.
Kick it, lady-style
In case you’re wondering why we made a spelling mistake in the main title, let us explain. Galentine’s Day is a day where you leave your husband, boyfriend, partner at home for one extraordinary evening, using the sentence: ‘Honey, don’t wait up. I’ll be home late.’ A day where you leave behind those unwashed dishes, that pile of dirty laundry and chuck a few pizzas in the fridge without guilt. That’s THAT kind of day!
As Ms. Leslie Knope from Parks & Recreation would say: ‘Oh it's only the best day of the year. Every February 13th, my lady friends and I just come and kick it, breakfast-style.’
Yes, it’s a fictional holiday, we know. But who cares! It’s a day when ladies celebrate other ladies. So what are you waiting for? Call your besties and lock in an extraordinary brunch or night out!
Ovaries before brovaries
It’s the perfect time to cherish your happy memories, to make plans for the future and to talk about how much you care about each other. Why? Because Valentine’s Day makes a lot of people feel lonely. And even being a fictional character, Ms. Leslie Knope can teach us many important life lessons. Here are our favorite pearls of wisdom from the divine Ms. K that we would like to share with you. Try to include at least one every day, and you’ll radiate with love and happiness!
Be your own queen
Every morning, look at yourself in the mirror and say out loud: “Lady you’re awesome!” Repeat this self-confidence mantra every day and you’ll be ready to conquer the world. Or experience the true power of love with Leaf’s new love meditation ‘Radiating Love'.
Roses are red, but crystals shine forever
Make this Galentine’s Day even more special and grab a special gift for you and your gal pals. Let them know how much you appreciate them! Whether a framed pic of your amazing friendship or a Leaf Crystal - get them in the spotlight! They’ll thank you!
Don’t let anyone make you feel lonely cause you don’t have a romantic date for Valentine’s day, you’re friends are sometimes more important!
Happy Galentine’s Day from girls here at Bellabeat!
