Valentines is just around the corner and if you ask me, I couldn’t care less. Valentines day has never really ever been something that I have got into. I don’t really know why, Its probably something to do with the fact that I have never had a valentine, nor have I ever been given red roses on valentines or in general. I suppose I have never had it, so I don’t miss it. Which is kinda sad when you think about it but at the same time its quite nice. I don’t have anything to compare my valentines too so I just enjoy the time I have, I just have a good time with my GAL PALS instead.
This is a post coming from a girl who is a strong believer in Galentines and I feel like I need to share with you just why I think so. Galentines is basically the celebration of love you have for your friends. I think we all often forget just how much are friends are there for us, I know I certainly do. I personally get wrapped up in my life very easily and forget just how special my friends are. I don’t have many close friends but the ones I do, I cherish with all my heart. They are honestly the best friends I could ever have.
I will start with the 2 girls who made my university experience and my life 1000000x better. Those 2 girls are Becca and Lauren.
Becca & Lauren…
I met these 2 amazing human beings in the first week of university and we have quite literally been friends ever since. It will be 5 years this year and that literally seems crazy to me. I dont know what I ever did without them. They both made my university experience a million times better than I could have ever imagined. We have had some of the best memories ever. From drunk moments in cameo to going shopping when we didn’t have any money to spend. The love I have for both Lauren and Becca is endless and I cant express that enough. I may not get to see them very much but they will always be my fashion girls and will always be my best of friends. I cant wait to see them next week and be back with the for the first time in 5 months.
Now I’m sure you all know by now how much I love Sophie. I don’t have many friends at home and actually don’t talk to anyone I went to school or college with anyone. Everyone kinda just dropped me as soon as I went to uni so when I moved back home, I was incredibly scared as to what I would do with my spare time. That hole was very quickly filled by Sophie and boy has she no disappointed. We have only been friends for a year but its been the best year. We’ve been through break ups, arguments cause by other people, been on holiday, road trips, cried to each other on a night out, laughed till our stomachs hurt and many more. I am very glad that I got the chance to meet her and I cannot wait for the years to come. My lil fie fie.
I may not have a lot of friends but these 3 mean the absolute world to me and I feel very lucky to even just have them in my life. This is why Galentines is so important. You can share you love with your partner/boyfriend/husband/wife every single day but you may not necessarily get the chance to do that with your friends. Take a day…doesn’t have to be valentines day…and spend some time with your favourite gal pals. I know that not all of us are single and a lot of you will want to spend valentines day with your loved one but remember your gals will always be there for you. so make some time for them, go on a date with them and give them all the love you would give your loved one.
Me and Sophie are very much single so we’ve taken it upon ourselves to have the best valentines day ever or should I say galentines day ever. We both have work which is poop but after work we are starting the evening/afternoon with an early dinner followed by a trip to the cinema to see 50 shades freed and I am so excited about it. I have seen the last two 50 shades movies on valentines day so it would be silly not to see the third one on valentines too right? I am so excited for this date. Like come on who needs a boy when your have your best friend to hang our with? Im not complaining thats for sure.
What are your galantines plans? Going out somewhere? or having a cute evening in with pizza and a movie? Let me know, Id love to know how you intend on spending some quality time with your gal pals!
