Gather up all your gal-pals! Time to celebrate friendships and treat yo’ selves to some quality GAL time! Sharing Galentines Day ideas to easily do right now with your fab friends. Chic ideas for everyone, but especially if you are over the age of 30 and your idea of “girls night” doesn’t include matching outfits. ahem.
❤️Galentines Day: If you watched Parks and Recreation you already know what Galentines Day is all about. However, if you need a refresher it’s a day that’s observed on February 13, the day before Valentine’s Day, to celebrates platonic friendships, generally among women. But all are welcome!
