Valentine’s Day

Browsing

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.”

Single ladies, let’s be honest, we’ve experienced that Valentine’s Day where we had super high expectations only to be highly disappointed. Was your boyfriend ever as romantic as Ryan Gosling in The Notebook? I bet he sure as heck didn’t have Patrick Swayze’s moves like in Dirty Dancing. If February 14th was the only day of the year he got you flowers, he probably paid more attention to TV ads than he did you. Then there’s Vday dinner; the restaurants are all booked solid, so you better plan ahead and get a reservation; and make sure your man doesn’t forget his wallet because set menus are always way over priced!  So single ladies, REAL TALK! This year you will NOT sit at home feeling sorry for yourself or spend the day romanticizing about your ex.  Good riddance!

Don’t block love with any negative vibes! Love doesn’t just come from romance; it comes from your friends & family, the universe, your pet and most importantly it comes from yourself. Remember that your heart determines your true relationship status. Now if you’re thinking Valentine’s Day is a made-up Hallmark Holiday you’ll ignore; to that I say, “Good luck!”  Unless you’re living under a rock, you will have to witness co-workers get flower deliveries, heart shaped chocolates and candies will be everywhere and not to mention your Facebook feed will be loaded with love gushing posts. So, as Eckhart Tolle would say,

“Realize deeply that the present moment is all you have. Make the NOW the primary focus of your life.

So on this February 14, 2018 I invite all the single ladies to celebrate not having to celebrate Valentine’s day!

1. Spoil yourself: On this special day, treat yourself like the princess you are! Take the day off work and go to the spa for a massage. Then when you get home, light some candles, take a relaxing bath with your best bubbles, and finish off the day by ordering your favorite food and binge watching Nextflix.Single ladies let's celebrate not having to celebrate Valentine's day  2. Go out with you lady soul mate(s): Get dressed up as though you’re going out on a hot date, make a reservation at your favorite restaurant and hit the town with all your single girls. Spend the night laughing about all your terrible Tinder dates and how you once thought you’d never get over your ex? LMFAO!!!Single ladies let's celebrate not having to celebrate Valentine's day

3. Go outside: Get out doors and be one with nature.  Go for a hike, skiing, ice skating or snowshoeing

4. Go shopping – that purse you’ve been eyeing. go get it! Those shoes, you thought were too expensive, they’re yours.  That adorable dress you have no where to wear. Treat yourself, buy it!

5. Give love: Giving always feels better than receiving; get your single friends a card, a box of chocolates or bouquet of flowers and remind them they are loved. Volunteer at a shelter or old folks home. Helping the less fortunate and being the reason, someone smiles because of you is a small gesture that can go a long way. Plus, it being nice feels so much better than stuffing your face with chocolate. Do not drown your sorrows in a box of chocolates!

6. Get your sweat on: 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 and more relaxed.  Why endorphins and exercise makes you happy.

7.  Alone is better than miserable: Remember being single is always better than being in a relationship that doesn’t fit right, is dysfunctional or is no longer serves you. A boyfriend doesn’t necessarily mean you’re in a happy place. Now don’t get my wrong,  I do believe we all have a prince charming somewhere out there, but while we wait for him to show up in his new Tesla, we will not lay around like sleeping beauties. On February 14th celebrate not having to celebrate Valentine’s day while you still can!

“Being single is pretty good, it’s a nice sense of irresponsibility.” Michael Douglas

FUN FACT: You are not alone. In 2014 the Bureau of Labor Statistics reported that 124.6 million Americans over the age of 16 years were single; that 50.2 percent of the population!!
