As if we needed an extra excuse to hang with the girls and eat chocolate, but we have one! Galentine’s Day has gained traction in recent years, with an increasing number of women, both single and in relationships, using the day to acknowledge the strength of their female relationships.
Although we believe the celebration of bonds between women is something that should be recognised all-year round, the official day for Galentine's is the 13th February, the day before Valentines day.
In order to celebrate female empowerment we have collated some fun ideas and gift Inso below.
Each grab yourself a "cup of ambition," and a comfy set of PJ's, like the ones below made from sustainable material. Then get your pamper on with a super soothing fruity face mask box, or an intensively hydrating lip mask to boost elasticity around the lip area for a subtly plumper pout. To cover all areas why not enhance the eyes with STARSKIN'S gold foil eye masks, or even consider their gold hand and foot treatments? What are you waiting for!

Have A Pizza Night

Chill Rosé In Flower Infused Ice Cubes
Rosé all the way, one because it's pink, two because it's rosé... Make your ice buckets instaworthy with DIY rose ice cubes. Step No 1: Simply pour enough water into an ice tray to fill it one-third of the way, then freeze. Step No. 2: Place petals or whole roses on top of the ice. Step No 3: At this point, the petals or flowers will be stuck in the ice and unable to float annoyingly to the top of the cube, so it’s safe to fill the tray the rest of the way with water and freeze for the end result.
