What is Galentine's Day and what ideas have we got to celebrate it?
Here at Love Leggings, we have decided to ditch the heart-shaped chocolates and candle-lit dinners for a celebration of our female friendships.
It may not be an official holiday, and there’s nothing to stop you celebrating this alongside your traditional Valentine’s Day, but why would you say no to showering your soul sisters with love... and maybe a little bit of bubbly?
So, what is Galentines?
The holiday was coined from a 2010 episode of Parks and Recreation by the character Leslie, with the festivities taking place on the 13th February.
Leslie states that “Every February 13, my lady friends and I leave our husbands and our boyfriends at home, and we just kick it, breakfast-style. Ladies celebrating ladies”.
How do you celebrate it?
There are no rules. Whether you are showing the dance floor who is boss, or becoming more familiar with your sofa, as long as you are spending quality time with your gal pals, it doesn’t matter!
Here are our favourite ideas for a Galentines gathering…
1. Girls Night Out
Feel glam and don’t give a damn. Get dressed up in your favourite party outfits and dance the night away.
Pair your favourite little black dress with the Poppy Red tights to make the ultimate Galentine's statement.
2. Pamper Party
If you’re not feeling the drinks and the dancing, then what about a night of all things indulgence? With everybody’s busy schedules, sometimes the best way to catch up is with a rom-com or chick flick, alongside a copious amount of snacks of course.
For maximum comfort, dive into a pair of cotton Everyday Leggings and an oversized hoodie.
3. Detox Day
Feel fully flexible in the Focus Leggings, for a truly mindfulness experience.
4. Afternoon Tea
Celebrate the ladies in your life with elegance, by going out for a classic Afternoon Tea. Catch up over cucumber sandwiches, scones and cake – as well as enough tea to fill a bathtub. For a fizzier afternoon, switch to the Prosecco.
Channel sophistication, whilst also keeping warm, wearing a jumper and skirt combo accompanied by thick Black 100 Denier Tights.
