Who limited "females celebrating females" to one day?

7 Things To Do Beyond Galentine's Day

Who says that fabulous female friendships should only be celebrated once a year? I say celebrate your friendships once a month or even once a week! Here are some fun ideas to do with your gal pals!

1. Shopping trip

Sorry for your credit card bills in advance! There is no better way to spend a day than getting some brand new items for your wardrobe. You can go to all of your favorite stores, try on a million different things, and experience the fun day with each other.

2. Weekly dinners

You don't need to spend a lot of money to celebrate your amazing friends. You could have weekly potluck dinners where everyone brings one part of the meal! It will be nice to sit down and enjoy a meal together and hear all about how your weeks are going.

3. Movie date

You can get that extra butter on your popcorn to celebrate. There are new movies coming out monthly, so you could make this a monthly occasion. Going over to each other's houses and watching a Netflix movie works too!

4. Wine and painting

If you have an Instagram, you have seen the phase that is currently sweeping the female population. What is better than wine and painting with your favorite people around you? You can bring your painting home after your night out and hang it somewhere special so you will always think of your girls.

5. Start a book club

If you have seen the previews for the movie Book Club that is hitting theaters on May 18th, you can see that a book club can be a lot of fun. You get to chose the books you read, so they can be of any genre that you and your friends like! P.S.-- You probably won't stay on topic of the book, but that is okay! That is the fun of book club!

6. Plan a trip

Is there any location that you and your girls constantly talk about going to? Pick a weekend/week and go there! Whether is it's a weekend for a small road trip, or a two week trip across Europe, plan it! There is something so special about a girls' trip; sit back, relax, and enjoy being around your favorite people.

7. Do a group workout class

Working out may stink, but doing it with your friends could be a lot of fun! When you are around your friends, you will forget about the sweat dripping and the pain. You could do cycling, Zumba, abs, etc.!

So remember ladies, females are extremely powerful, and we deserve to celebrate each other. We can praise our girl gangs daily, weekly, monthly, etc.! Whatever you chose to do, have fun with it! It's all about you and your squad.

5 Simple Ways To Give Yourself Grace, Especially When Life Gets Hard

Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we are becoming.

If there's one thing I'm absolutely terrible at, it's giving myself grace. I'm easily my own worst critic in almost everything that I do. I'm a raging perfectionist, and I have unrealistic expectations for myself at times. I can remember simple errors I made years ago, and I still hold on to them. The biggest thing I'm trying to work on is giving myself grace. I've realized that when I don't give myself grace, I miss out on being human. Even more so, I've realized that in order to give grace to others, I need to learn how to give grace to myself, too. So often, we let perfection dominate our lives without even realizing it. I've decided to change that in my own life, and I hope you'll consider doing that, too. Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we're becoming. As you read through these five affirmations and ways to give yourself grace, I hope you'll take them in. Read them. Write them down. Think about them. Most of all, I hope you'll use them to encourage yourself and realize that you are never alone and you always have the power to change your story.

How Young Feminists Can Understand And Subvert The Internalized Male Gaze

Women's self-commodification, applied through oppression and permission, is an elusive yet sexist characteristic of a laissez-faire society, where women solely exist to be consumed. (P.S. justice for Megan Fox)

Paramount Pictures

Within various theories of social science and visual media, academics present the male gaze as a nebulous idea during their headache-inducing meta-discussions. However, the internalized male gaze is a reality, which is present to most people who identify as women. As we mature, we experience realizations of the perpetual male gaze.
