Galentine’s Day: The Only Good Fake Holiday On Your Calendar4 minute
6 steps to absolutely ace Galentine’s this year:
- Theme A Slumber Party
What’s a slumber party without matching outfits? A really average one. If you’re convinced you’re going to be celebrating this blessing of a fake holiday this year, you might as well do it right. Even if it's just a couple of your girls coming over for drinks and dinner - theme the party! You can choose printed PJs (straight out of the book of cliches) or have your own innovative theme for the slumber party. Suggested themes in trend: Unicorn Mania, Fries over guys, All Black Everything. Any excuse to play dress up is a good one.

- Cool Off With Face Masks
No slumber party is ever complete without a glow up. Get your girl gang together and give out facemasks as part of your “welcome hamper” because looking fresh equals feeling fresh. Get you glam on, paint your nails and do what you have to, to feel like you can take on the world!
- Design a Kid’s Menu
You’re lying if you say you would rather go to a restaurant and order a regular meal instead of heart shaped chicken nuggets with curly fries straight off the kid’s menu. This Galentine’s day, set the most liberating menu with all of your food cravings included. Fancy cheetos with nutella dip? Do it. (Ew, but you do you!) Unleash your inner child. Put cookie dough, sour candy and mini pizzas on your menu for the day because, why not,right?
- Get Relaxing Foot Massages
Galentine’s day is all about taking some time out, relaxing your mind with your favorite girls and dedicating an entire day to yourself. Spa day calls for special foot massages at home; so light up some scented candles, put on some jazz music and relax. You deserve moments such as these (if not more) to sit back and tune out from the world.
- Let Your Hair Down With Karaoke
Girls just wanna have fun.. and be excessively loud while we’re at it! Karaoke nights can be insanely fun if you do it right. Pour yourself a drink, pull out “Best of Katy Perry (or TSwift) on your karaoke machine and lose yourself to the sound of your (what is most likely defenning) voices!
While you’re busy having a great time, don’t forget to take some Polaroids pictures for memories. What’s a party with no pictures?! Team Glo wishes you a gleeful galentine's day!
