Galentine's Day

Hey girl hey, it’s almost Galentine’s Day! Otherwise known as “only the best day of the year,” Galentine’s Day is celebrated every February 13th. The holiday honors female friendship and stands on the pillars of self-love, self-care and lady power. Never heard of it? Here’s a little herstory on what will surely become your new favorite holiday.

TV character Leslie Knope of “Parks and Recreation” founded the holiday as a way to pay tribute to her BFFs and create space for ladies celebrating ladies. Leslie’s mantra is simple. “You know my code,” she says. “Hoes before bros. Uteruses before duderuses…Ovaries before brovaries.”

Galentine’s Day is the ultimate holiday to not only have fun with your gal pals, girl squad, besties — whatever you call them — but to acknowledge how awesome the women in your life are! While the hit TV show is no longer making new seasons, Leslie secured her status as an iconic, fictional female. Or in her words, “I am a goddess, a glorious female warrior.”

To celebrate Galentine’s Day, Leslie took her friends out to breakfast and gave them gift bags. Those gift bags included: a bouquet of hand crocheted flower pens, a mosaic portrait of each person made from the crushed bottles of their favorite diet soda, and a personalized 5,000-word essay on why they are so awesome. If you’re not feeling crafty (I mean, who has that kind of time?) we encourage you to celebrate your sisterhood with a Galentine’s Day Photoshoot!

The transformative experience is a great way to acknowledge the strong bond you share as friends, and pay tribute to the self-care you get from each other outside of your work/life/family dynamics. Don’t have a girl posse? A photoshoot is also a powerful way to celebrate what a strong babe you are! Or in the words of Leslie, “You are a beautiful, talented, brilliant, powerful musk ox.”

  • A full photoshoot for up to 4 women

  • The experience includes a girl-powered musical playlist & mimosas
