Galentine's Day, shines a spotlight on the essence and vitality of female friendships. Occurring on February 13th, this day deviates from romantic celebrations, focusing instead on cherishing the bonds between women. It's a time to pause, reflect, and nourish the relationships that offer us strength, laughter, and a shoulder to lean on.
This year, let's embrace the concept of "getting mild" – a gentle nudge to slow down and appreciate the incredible women in our lives.
The notion of "getting mild" is an invitation to celebrate these connections in a more intimate, relaxed setting. It's about creating a space where laughter flows, conversations meander from the frivolous to the profound, and where the hustle of daily life fades into the background.
The ideal Galentine's sleepover focuses on activities that foster connection and relaxation. Think along the lines of spa treatments, movie marathons, cozy pyjamas, and delicious snacks.
But beyond the fun and festivities, Galentine's Day—and the act of "getting mild"—serves a deeper purpose. It's a reminder of the significance of female relationships in our lives. These are the bonds that support us through life's trials, celebrate our victories, and enrich our daily existence with unconditional love and understanding.
So, as Galentine's Day approaches, let's honour these invaluable connections. Let's set aside time to truly be with our friends, to listen, to share, and to celebrate the incredible impact we have on each other's lives. Because in the end, it's these moments of genuine connection that we'll cherish the most.
This year, we're celebrating with some of our favourite spots in Toronto. So go on and get mild.
Here is how we're spending our Galentine's Day:
- We're kicking things off by checking in at the The Hazelton Hotel located in Yorkville. It's central to everything we have planned and their rooms are incredible.
- We've packed our favourite pair of slippers, The Maya Backless in Rosa, for the night and are slipping them on to keep our feet cozy and comfortable while exploring the City of Toronto.
- Once we've unpacked our bags, we're heading to Othership, for a cold plunge and sauna.
- Post plunge, we're grabbing our favourite smoothies to go from Nutbar. Have you tried their Ultimate Recovery Smoothie?
- With full stomachs, we're heading back to our hotel to use our HB FACE 5 minute makeup routine to freshen up.
- With our glow on, we head on over to Her Majesty's Pleasure for some nail art inspired by L-O-V-E.
- To top off the day, drinks and dinner at Trattoria Nervosa in Yorkville so we can wander back and be in our pj's watching Clueless by 9pm.
