Galentine’s Day is a few years old but it’s an increasingly popular holiday. As the name suggests, it is a day for women to celebrate their female friendships and it usually occurs the day before Valentine’s Day so that women with significant others can still celebrate Val’s day. Galentine’s Day is celebrated every 13th of February and women across the world celebrate their female friendships that day because our female friendships are as important (if not more) than our romantic ones and they truly deserve to be celebrated.

This year I decided to collaborate with four amazing Nigerian bloggers (Oroma, Nnikky, Enkay and Lade) for a Galentine’s day shoot and it was such an amazing shoot and we talked about a lot of stuff, laughed a lot while  shooting and basically had a nice time.

Galentine’s Day is the day to get all your girls together, have fun, share the love and reflect on your wins, struggles and discuss life generally. You’ll be shocked when you realize that your friend that is always uploading “peng” pictures online is actually going through a hard time and she knowing that she’s surrounded by people that love her and support her might just be all she needs to keep living.

So if you’re not sure of what to do with your girl squad this Galentine’s day don’t worry I’ve got you covered. Below are few things you can do to make your soul sisters feel special this Galentine’s Day:

  • Share a feast; You could cook yourselves something really special and eat and just have a good time.
  • Organize a movie night; You can organize a movie night at home and choose a movie that celebrate female friendships or women empowerment in general.
  • Go out; Go for karaoke, sing, dance and let it be a proper girls day out.
  • Go kart racing, Paintballing or any other activities people think women are too delicate for.
  • Go for a girls day out: We all love a great girls dat out and you could go to the spa, go for dinner at a fancy restaurant, go clubbing or crash a party if it’s your thing.
  • If you and your girls cannot be at the same place at the same time due to distance, work and other factors then you can FaceTime and send each other thoughtful and fancy gifts celebrating your friendship.

  1. What you guys did is really beautiful. the poses, looks etc are really love. i’m terrible at making friends so i don’t have a girl squad, i just have people i know. It’s a really beautiful thought though and you make me wish i have a girl squad so bad.

  2. Happy Valentine’s day. In the spirit of the season, i strongly believe the key to loving someone successfully is loving yourself fully  first. A lot of pple out there don’t even love themselves and claim to love another. A lot of pple are selfish to themselves and rely totally on others for survival. How can  you give what you don’t have? Thus, I’d implore to you to take this as a learn point that while you are at celebrating your loved ones, bear in to love yourself too. On your own take yourself out, buy that thing you have have always dreamt of, just do that one thing you haven’t really done for yourself and you’d realise that the more you love yourself the more you would love the one you claim to love. Once again, happy Valentine’s day everyone.
