Regardless of your current relationship status I highly encourage all you ladies to get out and celebrate Galentine’s Day on February 13.
Your girlfriends are always there for you, listening to all your horrible online dating stories, wiping your tears when “what’s his name” broke your heart, even though she told you he was no good, and knew you’d easily forget his name.
A true friend has helped you move, supported your crazy ideas, held your hair back over the toilet, and has seen you at your best and loved you at your worse. No matter what, she’s your biggest cheerleader. She also knows all your secrets, so if you ever “break-up” you’ll have to kill her!
So coupled or not, on February 13, leave your man at home and go out on a date with your BFFs. Honestly, do you really need an excuse to hang out with your lady friends and let them know just how much they mean to you?
“Whether you’re throwing up or breaking up, you want your girlfriend right there! I don’t trust women who don’t go to their girlfriends.” — Drew Barrymore
In no specific order, here are FIT & Flirty’s 5 Ways to Celebrate Galentine’s Day with Champagne!
1. Host a mimosas and waffle brunch for the ladies who want to celebrate in Leslie Knope style! I can’t think of a better way to honor the founding mother of Galentine’s day.
2. Binge watch the classic love stories – Hair up, lululemon’s on and head over to your bestie’s house with a few bottles of champagne and pizza. Ryan Gosling is everyone’s perfect man in The Notebook, Patrick Swayze’s hot moves in Dirty Dancing will get your heart thumping, and “The Bridges of Madison County” will have you reminiscing and crying about the “one that got away”.
Don’t tell me you miss me, tell me you’re outside with a bottle of champagne.”
3. Get your sweat on – those who sweat (and sip) together stay together. Try a new fitness class and get your sweat on! Have you ever heard anyone say, “damn I shouldn’t have done that workout?” Physical activity stimulates various brain chemicals that leaves you feeling happier, more relaxed and of course BEAUTIFUL!!! Don’t forget to hydrate with a glass of your favorite bubbly!
4. Go out with your lady soul mate(s): Put on your best shoes and hit the town with all your single gals. Remind each other how lucky you are to have each other in your lives, how amazing you are and then raise a glass to your FIT & fabulous life!
“Being single used to mean that nobody wanted you. Now it means you’re pretty sexy and you’re taking your time deciding how you want your life to be and who you want to spend it with.
5. Lunch and pamper – you and your bestie don’t ever apologize for your high standards. You like the finer things in life, and you’re damn classy! Celebrate your greatness with white gloved lunch at the Club, sip on a few glasses of Dom Perignon then unwind after your stressful day with a facial and massage. Come on, you know you deserve it!
“Galentine’s Day” has transcended the television screen and become established in everyday culture. On February 13, Galentine’s Day, a non-official holiday, is celebrated as a day for “ladies celebrating ladies.”

Here’s a few suggestions on how to incorporate champagne into your Halloween celebrations.
Raise a glass to the spooky spirits!
I’m sure many of you plan on celebrating with friends by drinking copious amounts of alcohol. So let me be the one to remind you to always respect the dead and honor them with glass! Raise a glass in style with champagne!
Ernest Hemingway’s favorite way to kill an afternoon was with a cocktail made with a shot of absinthe topped with Champagne. In somewhat of a publicity stunt, he named his favorite drink Death in the Afternoon, the same name of his 1932 novel, and submitted it to a celebrity recipe book in 1935. In his instructions, he suggested three to five of these drinks at a time—that’s certainly one way to send you to an early grave!!
Side note – I tried these at the Hemingway Bar in the Ritz in Paris. They will knock you on your ASS!! I stopped at TWO!!!
Death in the Afternoon – Champagne Cocktail
What you will need
1/4 – 1/2 ounce absinthe
sparkling wine (dry)
1 dash simple syrup, optional (1:1, sugar:water)
Add absinthe and simple syrup (if using) to a flute.
Slowly top with chilled, sparkling wine.
Notes – Choose a good, dry sparkling wine or Champagne, because absinthe has a particular flavor profile, some may prefer more or less. Though the original recipe calls for a prodigious one-and-a-half ounces of absinthe, we prefer to remain standing after one cocktail. Contemporary versions, including ours, call for a lighter pour.

Poppin’ costume ideas
We all love dressing up for a Halloween costume party! If you want to stand apart from all the ghosts, goblins, vampires and witches check out these three fresh and classy champagne inspired Halloween costumes; right up my alley!
WICCA and Modern Witchcraft
The modern form of witchcraft known as Wicca was founded in England in the 1950’s. Its members worship nature, and a female goddess. They take an oath to do no harm with their magic. Contrary to many beliefs Wicca is a very peaceful, harmonious and balanced way of life which promotes oneness with the divine and all which exists. There are now more than 400,000 Wiccans in the United States. But you probably won’t recognize them walking in the streets, since they don’t wear pointy hats.
So maybe on this Halloween you want to stay in and conjure up some self-case by indulging in a WICCA BATH SPELL – yes it involves champagne!
Whoever you decide to celebrate don’t forget to close all the doors and windows because on October 31, the spirits are out in the open looking to have fun! Be safe, strange things happen on Halloween night.
If only running out of champagne counted as cardio!!
It’s that time a year when it gets really hard for me to stay motivated. Daylight is lacking and it’s cold & wet outside. Plus the holiday season is sneaking up… and my schedule is about to get super hectic! I’m sure you can relate.
As soon as I must wear more than one layer to run outdoors, I find myself saying “I’ll go in a prosecco…” and I also find myself drinking way more bubbly at this time of year. “Fizz the season” right? Thanksgiving, Christmas parties, New Year’s and then my birthday. So really, I should be running more, not less.
For many runners, it doesn’t matter if you’re in the middle of marathon training or jumping on the treadmill to burn off those champagne calories; a good music can often make the difference between a fabulous run or skipping it all together.
That’s why I put together this 90-minute bubbly inspired iTunes playlist chock-full of champagne poppin’beats to keep me moving between all the holiday festivities!
So, if you’re a runner but also like to indulge in sipping champagne, my latest mix is a great for any run! I’m sure it will help you get in the true holiday spirit and keep you running strong! But you’ll probably be super thirsty by the time you get home! What’s your favorite champagne inspired song?

Fabulous reasons why Champagne will never go out of style. Not to be mistaken for sparkling wines like Prosecco or Cava, a real bottle of Champagne, must be made from a combination of three specific grapes grown in the in Northwest Region of France called Champagne. A bottle has about 49,000,000 million bubbles!
A Sign of Luxury
Champagne is known as the ultimate luxury drink, and nothing says luxury more than Marilyn Monroe bathing in champagne. Yes, the blonde bombshell icon once filled her bathtub with 350 bottles of champagne and took a relaxing soak.
A Champagne Fact You’ll Never Forget
Research in 2013 from the University of Columbia shows that champagne contains proteins that are beneficial for your short-term memory. A study by Reading University in 2013 said that three glasses of bubbles per week can help improve it.
Everyone says that red wine is good for your heart, but champagne (which is mostly made from red grapes) is just as healthy. Studies found that the sparkling wine contained high levels of polyphenols – antioxidants found in red grapes but less intensely in white – that can lower blood pressure and prevent heart problems. In fact, Reading’s Dr Jeremy Spencer, a man who appears to have generously given his life over to finding reasons for us to drink more, suggested that two glasses a day will do the trick.
Say Goodbye to Champagne Poppin’ and Say Hello to Champagne Sabbering!
Sabering is the act of opening a champagne bottle with an actual sword. The traditional technique includes slicing off the neck of a bottle with a single sword stroke —this is a cool party trick I personally have in my back pocket.
Some Champagnes go through a process that uses fining agents like gelatin and casein to clarify the end product, but if you’re looking for a vegan option then Moët & Chandon, Korbel Natural Champagne and Dom Perignon are your bubbles of choice.
“Middle Finger to my Old Life” – Jay-Z
In 2014, Beyonce’s better half Jay-Z, a long time champagne fan, purchased Champagne Armand de Brignac from Sovereign Brands. A bottle retails for approximately $300. Fun fact- Hip-hop, rap and R&B concert goers are 94% more likely to drink Champagne vs the average person.
For an instant mood booster, just sip champagne! This is thanks to the magnesium, potassium and zinc it contains.
“Champagne is the one thing that gives me zest when I’m tired.” Brigitte Bardot
Help Prevent Dementia
A glass or two of champagne could possibly prevent the onset of dementia. Research in Pittsburgh found that the risk in studies were almost halved for those who drank ‘moderate’ quantities. More Champagne health benefits here!
Gluten, Dairy and Fat Free
One glass(120ml) of Champagne has about 89 calories, 0.9 grams of protein, 1.6 grams of carbs and 0 grams of fat!
