Do we have any single ladies out there? My best friend is happily single. She loves going on dates, but she doesn’t need a man! She prefers to live life to the fullest, regardless of her relationship status on Facebook. Women like her are popping up everywhere, and rightfully so! With Valentine’s Day approaching, I will share with you a few fun Galentine’s Day plans that you can make your own!

Glam Up

Your ultimate goal is to celebrate yourself. Yes, that’s right! Celebrate your awesome self. Glam up!

My favorite thing to do on special occasions is shave my legs, give myself a quick Self Tan, do my nails, fix my hair and dress real cute. This might just mean glamming up to lay in bed and watch Netflix, or you might go out with other single Gal Pals. All options are fantastic! Just feel your best on your Gal-entine’s Day.

Go Out by Yourself

My bestie loves going out by herself. She always feels empowers, and enjoys spending time with herself. With self-love being so important, you should learn (if you haven’t already) how to spend time by yourself in public and have fun! You can practice this on February 14th. Treat yourself to a movie, a nice dinner, and some dessert. You deserve it. No one should be expected to stay home on Valentine’s Day just because you’re single.

Throw a “Singles” Valentine’s Party

A fun way to make the most of your single status is to throw a singles party! You can invite all of your single friends and do your favorite activities! Your friends and you might like hiking, so go hiking with a group. You might like games, so play glow in the dark volleyball with blaring music. You might even just like food, so throw a dinner party for your favorite friends. The sky is the limit for what you can do at your Singles Party!

Moral of the story, don’t be ashamed because you are single on Valentine’s Day. It is fun to be single, so make the most of it!

Engraved Yeti

Engraved Yeti’s are my go to gift! I am a Yeti advocate because their cups are high quality. Ice will stay in my mug for over 24 hours, and coffee will stay scalding hot all day long. That’s a winner to me! Engrave your man’s name into his new Yeti, and I promise, he will love it!

The Beats by Dre brand is incredible. The Beats Pill is perfect for parties of any variety, even just cleaning on a Saturday morning! I have earnestly admired this brand since they came out, and I have never been disappointed. All of my Beats products have lasted for over 5 years, with hard wear. I highly recommend this product.
