The Rise of Galentines Day
Is it cheesy to say that you ‘love’ Valentines Day? I’ve always been a big old romantic. Falling in love with old vintage photographs and classic love stories, from books to movies. There’s just something nice about telling someone that you love them, and knowing that they love you too. So why not extend that tradition to your favourite ladies and have a good old get together?
Behold the rise of galantines day; a day to spend with your own girl-gang. For those who make you laugh like no others, who have your back no matter what, and will always cheer you up on a bad day. Plus, who else is going to tell you that you look terrible in that dress that you thought you loved? Brutal honesty and affectionate terms of slagging-off endearment is the truest form of friendships don’t you know.
The Power of #thegirlgang
The rise of the cliché #girlgang has been on the up recently. From the act of women supporting each other in doing whatever the hell they want. For the fearless ladies who exude self-confidence and help build each other up. Sometimes clichés can be a little over-rated, especially when it comes to blogging (copper and marble everything anybody?). But I for one am wholeheartedly supporting the growth and strength of the international girl gang. After all, we all need someone to build us up, and what better way through the strength of each other. Women supporting women, and saying ‘you can do this’.
Be Your Own Girl Gang
With that in mind, for our very own galentines date, our #girlgang (also known as Team Burger, because well, we like burgers) got together for a day of excessive cake, sweet treats and cocktails. A shout out to my very own girl gang, you all make me feel so empowered and kick-ass, we’re going to take on the world together. Eating all the burgers life can throw at us in our way.
Did you celebrate galentines with your own girl gang?
