February is just around the corner, and you know what that means...Galentine’s day! Yes, while love is bound to be in the air and romantic nights out are of the essence, we think it’s important (and fun) to share a girl’s night in with your gal pals.
Parks & Recreation character Leslie Knope invented this important holiday to officially celebrate strong female friendships. Leslie described it, “Every February 13, my ladyfriends and I leave our husbands and our boyfriends at home, and we just come and kick it, breakfast-style. Ladies celebrating ladies. It’s like Lilith Fair, minus the angst. Plus frittatas.”
This women-supporting-women Valentine’s message has transcended from the screen to real life. Leslie celebrated with waffles annually on February 13th, but we’ve chosen some equally therapeutic products to treat your closest ladies with a lovely night in.
The obvious first step is to crack open a bottle of champagne. We’ve chosen a Sanfeletto prosecco from Angelbeck’s, locally in Montclair. The wine’s bubbly and sweet, just like your evening might be. Munch on some of these candy sour lips from local Montclair candy and giftable store, Sweet Home Montclair. Galentine’s day is the last day you’ll want to be laying off the sweets. Then, of course, comes the at-home spa treatment with products you can find at Chelsea Square.
The Patchology sheet mask takes five minutes to make your skin feel luscious and smooth (this is the perfect time to start your favorite rom-com, or maybe a girl-power inspired movie, like Wonder Woman). While it’s on, don’t forget to take some silly Snapchat selfies with your girls, because one-quarter of a sheet mask’s value is how ridiculous everyone looks wearing them.
Our final products for your evening will help you with a classic girls’-night-in task. Manicures! Odeme’s Show of Hands nail care kit includes 3 golden items: a file, cuticle pusher, and cleaning tool; cuticle scissors; and clippers to take your at-home manicures to the next level. After those grooming steps, we have Perfect Formula’s Gel Coat Manicure set. The two gel coat steps strengthen and protect nails so that they can be as strong as your female friendships, while the two colors provide an all-in-one base coat, nail color, top coat, and strengthener for all nail types.
We hope this night makes you and your friends feel loved, supported, and with a bellyful of sweets.
Happy Galentine’s day, ladies!
