I feel like I’m much more of a Galentine’s Day fan than a Valentine’s fan these days. As it’s all about celebrating your female friendships and for me, those have always been the strongest relationships throughout my life! For those of you who don’t know, Galentine’s Day is on the 13th of February, the day before Valentine’s Day. So I think it’s the perfect excuse to gather all your favourite girls together and plan a fabulous Galentine’s Night In! Failing that a pampering night in alone can also be just what you need sometimes. Remember, self love first!

My Recipe for the Perfect Galentine’s Night In

  1. Choose Your Film | Set up a nice comfy area with lots of blankets and pick out some films for a movie marathon. I LOVE a good rom-com! Some of my favourites include: 27 Dresses, Love Simon, Definitely Maybe, Crazy Stupid Love, Clueless, Legally Blonde and of course Bridget Jones’s Diary (I love all 3!). As well as the classics like Pretty Woman, Nottinghill and When Harry Met Sally. I’d love to hear what you favourite Rom-Com is in the comments! I’m sure I’ve missed some really great ones off my list. 
  1. Get The Snacks | What’s a movie marathon without epic amounts of snacks? Popcorn, sweets, chocolate, pizza, ice cream. You know, all the good stuff and as much as possible. It’s got to last through to the end of the films after all! Hot chocolates, piled high with marshmallows of course. Or how about some wine or cocktails?! 
  1. Scent The Room | I find I can’t truly relax anymore without a scented candle burning. There is just something about fragrance and the ambience of a flickering flame burning that helps me switch off.  I’ve chosen this Rhubarb and Rose Candle by Molten Brown from Fragrance Direct and it smells incredible!! It’s so soft and sweet yet refreshing at the same time with top notes of grapefruit & yuzu, a heart of rhubarb leaf & rose and vanilla & musk in the base notes. This candle is a giant 480g too so will easily see you through several girlie nights in!
  1. Pick Your Pamper Products | Harking back to my teenage sleepover days. No girlie night in is complete without beauty products! Top of the list for me is always face masks and these Elizabeth Arden Superstart Sheet Masks come as a pack of 4 so ideal for sharing with friends. They are full of cooling natural coconut water, hyaluronic acid and probiotics to restore the skins natural balance. Once you’ve enjoyed your masks you can then move on to the Nuxe Night Recovery Oil Balm which is rich in antioxidants to help skin fight environmental effects overnight. I’ve also got the Clarins Instant Smooth Perfecting Touch which you can apply over skincare to smooth and reduce pore sized or use under make up for a flawless finish. Lastly, one for if you’re having a pamper night alone. This is Elemis Embrace Bath & Shower Elixir. The packaging is just as indulgent & luxurious as the product inside! Full of 11 pure essential oils including Vetiver & Rose Pepper plus skin conditioning Amaranth & Bacuri oil to leave skin beautifully scented and moisturised. Bliss!
  1. Enjoy spending time with your favourite girls and making memories! “Women’s friendships are like a renewable source of power.” ~ Jane Fonda.
