Fun Ways to Celebrate Galentine's Day

Valentine's Day is around the corner and that means Galentine's Day for some of us! Although Galentine's Day can seem dreadful if we don't have a significant other to celebrate the actual Valentine's Day with, it can also be an amazing experience for females to bond with their friends.

Galentine's Day is unique in that it offers an alternative to a holiday that has already been there for a long time. Valentine's Day has been celebrated for many years and so already has made its mark on the calendar. Unfortunately, Galentine's Day doesn't have its place on the calendar, but it is still very special to people who may not have a significant other to celebrate Valentine's Day with. Galentine's offers a healthy and refreshing alternative where we can have the opportunity to get closer to our friends and do really exciting activities.

Since Galentine's is usually celebrated by the female identifying gender, it gives time for girl talk, some manicures and pedicures, face masks, and of course some girly music. Galentine's can be a great opportunity for people to celebrate their femininity with other girls. It gives a chance to cherish our inner feminineness with other people who are also celebrating Galentine's.

Galentine's Day doesn't have to be just one set of the same activities. There can be many different unique and new activities. It can require some thinking outside of the box for many of us, since we don't usually think about these things on a daily basis. Some fun ways to celebrate Galentine's Day include...

Visiting the Rose Mansion -The Rose Mansion has recently become a major hot spot in New York City. There are more and more people visiting this place, because it gives a unique interactive experience for the people that are visiting. There is a wine bar, a amusement park that is definitely Instagram worthy (especially if you are trying to include Galentine's Day hashtags), and there is also a science museum that the visitors can tour. There are events too for the visitors such as the "Pink Weekend". It is from February 14 through February 16 and the tickets can be bought online.

Galentine's Secret Santa -There is no rule that secret santa should only be reserved for Christmas. To spice things up, try having a secret santa as your Galentine's Day celebration with friends! It doesn't have to be super high-maintenance either! Have a get together with some friends and exchange some girly, feminine gifts such as fruit and candy fragrances, hair accessories, makeup products. If you want, you can also include a contest where the best, most creative gift gets a prize. This can make this secret santa more exciting.

Baking Galentine's Sweets -This is a must when it comes to satisfying cravings for sweet things (especially if we don't have a significant other to give us Valentine's chocolates and candy). Since you and your friends' baking ability may vary, just choose something that is easy but also super tasty enough for everyone to bake! Add red, pink, or white confetti, sprinkles, decorations to the baked goods to commemorate Galentine's Day.

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)

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.
