A Guide to Galentine’s Day

Galentine’s Day is here! If you’re not privy to the term, it was coined by the ever fierce Leslie Knope of Parks & Recreation.
This is a day to celebrate with your favorite ladies, in whichever way you choose. We’ve come up with four of our favorite ways to spend the day with your lady tribe.

Whether you are popping a bottle of bubbles, sipping on a craft brew, or honing in on your inner mixologist (and kale smoothies count!), we all love a good drink with our favorite gals. This BloodHound is a creative and prettier version of the classic Greyhound and will surely be a hit at your gathering. Find the recipe here.

Dancing The Night Away

Who doesn’t love to shake it on the dance floor with your favorite gals? I know, I know. Clubbing on a Tuesday? Surprisingly, a lot of places have nights dedicated to getting your boogie on the day before Valentine’s Day. Trust us, it will be worth it!

If dancing is  out of the question, a night of pampering with the girls will surely be your next best option. Face masks, manicures, and luxurious scented soaps will help you relax and unwind. What better way to indulge in some self care than with the Julianna Rae Spa Gift Set?

Honestly, this is what we all want. A dessert-a-thon! All the indulgence, a declared guilt-free zone for the day. Gather all your ladies under one roof, each bring a decadent dessert, make the hours open, and enjoy the company of your favorite sweets (yes, friends are sweets, too!) Here’s a recipe for one of our time tested favorites: lemon pudding cake and so easy, too!

Nothing says “I love you” quite like “stay in bed and eat this delicious breakfast that I made for you.” The best part is you can get as creative as you want. Over easy eggs, french toast, stacks on stacks of pancakes. To make it an even more special and luxurious morning add in a pair of Julianna Rae Pajamas!
