Maybe our girlfriends are our soulmates & guys are just people to have fun with.

Don't have a special someone? GALentines Day is right up your alley! Valentines day doesn't always mean spending time with someone your romantic with, just about spending the day with people you love and care about. I wanted to put together some things you and your girlfriends could do on February 14th or any day for that matter! 

Here are some things you could plan on doing for your very own GALentines Day! XOXOXO 


Plan a GALentines Day Party for you and your closest gal pals! This is such a great and fun way to spend the day with your besties. Hangout, have brunch, play fun games (I recommend looking up bachelorette party games) and sip on your favorite beverage while catching up and having girl talk! I would love to spend a day like this with my girlfriends, if I wasn't so busy this is something I would definitely plan. 


SHOPPING. Nothing is more therapeutic to me than a girls day shopping trip, it's one of my favorite things to do! I love the idea of spending the whole day with your best friend(s) shopping, it is something so simple, but SO MUCH FUN. I seriously love shopping days with my girls, nothing makes me happier or stress free. 


GIRLS NIGHT OUT. The obvious thing to do when galentines day is brought up is a night out on the town with the girls. Being carefree and grabbing drinks with your friends is so much fun, especially on valentines day. A girls night out with your closest friends, dancing the night away is definitely my idea of a galentines day well spent. 


BRUNCH. If you're at an age when all your girlfriends have significant others and already have plans for valentines day, brunch is a great way to get the girls together. A couple of hours in the afternoon spent eating and having girl talk couldn't be more perfect AND you still have time to go out with your guy at night! 


Sleepovers are always the best time ever. You're never too old for a good old fashioned slumber party with the girls. Sleepovers have always been my favorite, ever since I was a little girl. Watching movies all night, eating junk food, doing facials, dancing to the best girl anthems, gossiping... I mean what could be better? 

Here are some of my favorite GIRLS NIGHT movies 

  • Dirty Dancing 
  • Grease 
  • Freaky Friday 
  • Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants 
  • High School Musical (marathon) 
  • Cant Buy Me Love 
  • Bridesmaids 
  • Bride Wars 
  • Sweet Home Alabama 
  • Anything by Nicholas Sparks 
  • She's The Man 
  • 13 Going on 30 
  • Legally Blonde 
  • A Cinderella Story 
  • Mamma Mia 
  • Miss Congeniality 
  • No Strings Attached 
  • Friends With Benefits 
  • How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days 
  • Sex and the City 
  • The Heat 
  • Burlesque 
  • Chasing Liberty 
  • The Devil Wears Prada 

I hope this gave yall some ideas you could do with your girlfriend on valentines day! Girl time is always the best. Have a great GALentines Day ladies!
