It’s official, February 14th is for the ladies. The once dreaded holiday for singles has now become a day for celebration of friendship with your girlfriends, AKA Galentine’s Day (Cue Amy Poehler AKA Leslie on Parks and Rec, “It’s only the best day of the year!” Spending the past few years more often single vs. in a relationship I have come to fully embrace celebrating this day of love with some of the people I love the most- my closest girlfriends. While of course I would be lying if I said it didn’t make me a little emo to see others celebrating with their husband/fiance/boyfriend, I have learned to fully embrace these years of singleness (you can catch my two cents on being single + dating here) with the help of some of my best girlfriends.
My girlfriend’s and I usually get together every year around this time and either do a brunch, girls night in, wine night, or something of some sort to celebrate Galentine’s Day. This year, I will be celebrating from across the world in Iceland so I will be missing out on our annual festivities. However, I typically like to treat my girlfriends (especially my fellow single ones- cue Beyonce) with a few Galentine’s Day goodies. No need to get all fancy with it, or go all the way to the mall- this year I made little beauty goody-bags (which included wine of course) with beauty products from Walmart! I have shopped at Walmart my entire life; growing up that was the only major store in my hometown so thats where we went for everything! And not much has changed living in Dallas for the past 6 years because Walmart is still my go-to. Their Galentine’s day beauty selection had almost everything I needed to treat my girlfriends. Here are a few of the items I included in the goody bags for my favorite ladies:
Sheet Mask– I mean, can you ever go wrong with a face mask? Absolutely not! I use one at least twice a week, and it might be “cliche” to think that on a girls night in we all wear masks and drink wine…. but we 100% really do! haha
Lipstick– There is nothing I love more than trying new lip colors! I tried to pick out each of my girlfriends individually based on colors I thought they would love/would look great on them. I have been rocking a bold lip on the reg here lately so I have been obsessed with a fun, bold, matte shade.
Bronzer – I always keep a compact bronzer in my purse. You never know when you are going to need it!
So if you are single this year come February 14th, grab your gal’s and celebrate the amazing women and friendships you have. I am so fortunate to have so many great girls by my side, and that we are all able to come together to support one another. Single, married, in a relationship, whatever- doesn’t matter. Grab your girlfriends, all the wine, and celebrate the special women in your life- who needs a man?!
