Fun Ways to Celebrate Galentine's Day

No one should feel left out during Valentine's Day

13

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.

I was never really big on cocktails. Tequila soda is always a go-to drink for me because of its simplicity and, to be honest, lack of extra calories from mixers chock-full of sugar, chemicals, and other unknown ingredients. I like tequila, and like to be able to really savor it.

This all changed when, a couple of years ago, a friend of mine made me a margarita from scratch — no funky mixers involved — and it tasted incredible. It was light, refreshing, and complemented the tequila without overpowering it.

I was blessed with thick, full hair up until my late teens. At the time, I cursed my hairiness — this was before full eyebrows became trendy or cool, and were instead a point of bullying many of my fellow full-browed teens can relate to.

Later in my 20s, hormonal stability was something I was thankful for, though a major side effect ended up being hair loss — on my head, lashes, and brows. I now find my filling in my brows on an almost daily basis. As much as I enjoy toying with and testing out different brow-filling products, it'll never be quite the same as being able to have "I woke up like this" full, Gigi Hadid-esque brows.

May Is Mental Health Awareness Month, A Reminder We Need Even More In Quarantine

You're going through something brand new — that's worth talking about.

May is Mental Health Awareness Month. This isn't new to 2020, but oh man, if we ever needed a reminder about the importance of mental health, now is the time. With different states all over the place in regard to stay-at-home orders, phased reopenings, and a "new normal," we're experiencing conflict, fear, changes, and unknowns that can easily trigger mental struggles we already have or spark feelings we've never had before. Yes, May is always Mental Health Awareness Month, but in quarantine, that need for positive mental health is taken to a whole new level.

These 11 Face Masks On Etsy Support Small Businesses While Fighting The Spread Of Coronavirus

We're staying safe as states start lifting lockdown guidelines.

I, like most people who have had the luxury of being able to stay at home during this time, haven't spent much time outdoors at all. But when I do brave the great outdoors for a walk or to get to the grocery store, you won't find me without a mask.

My family and I were lucky enough to have family friends who were sewing some and had extras to give to us, but most of my friends and loved ones outside my immediate family have had to order some (or make a makeshift one out of scarves or bandanas).

13 Reasons We're Using Quarantine As The Ultimate Excuse For Online Shopping This Month

The one thing we haven't distanced from is our bank account.

Throughout quarantine, I've been FaceTiming most of my friends in a full turtleneck or the go-to cozy sweater I keep wrapped around the chair in my room. Either way, I always have tea in my hands to keep myself warm — till this past week.

For most of the country who hasn't had the luck of quarantining in 90-degree weather on their family's lake house or with a backyard pool, things began to change this month. Our favorite shows came out with summer seasons, the sun came out, and we started spending more time outside.
