We’re on the heels of February and Valentine’s Day is near.  It’s also Galentine’s Day for the ladies who love to celebrate with their gal pals.  This fairly new holiday, Galentine’s, was created by Amy Poehler’s, Parks and Recreation character, Leslie Knope and it occurs on February 13th, the day before Valentine’s Day. I love this because it allows us to have fun with our girlfriends too.

Have you attended a Galentine’s party?  Are you thinking of hosting your own gal party? As a woman, I must say it’s a great excuse to celebrate us as incredible friends, mother’s, sisters and daughters. 

Here are some fun party, gift ideas or party favors if you are planning a soirée. 


Party Ideas

Host a brunch

Cocktail Party

Binge on Netflix with your favorite chick flicks (“He’s Just Not That Into You,” a good refresher for the single gal)

Create an arts & crafts day together

Book a day at the nail salon with your favorite sister gal pals

Pajama Party

Party gifts/favors

Lotions & potions



Gift certificate to the nail salon

Nail polish

Cute pajamas


Any time spent with my girlfriends is a good time for most of us.  This may be a great time to reconnect with someone you’ve not seen or heard from in a while.  It may be the perfect opportunity for you to reach and invite them to a get together. 

As for me, I’m in full support of encouraging and uplifting other females.  Whether you are a single or married woman we all need each other’s support. I’ve had the same four girlfriends since grade school. Plus, I’ve developed some beautiful relationships with other incredible, inspiring and beautiful women. 

Might you join us for a Galentine’s Night?  Myself and lululemon Palm Desert are hosting a Galentine’s Soirée, Wednesday, February 13th 6pm-7pm.  

RSVP to  for a night inspiration, laughter, give-a-ways and Mocktini’s.  I’m thrilled to share my journey with you as a female entrepreneur, single and busy mom. Plus, I’ll share my new online program, “Better For It Now,” as well as reveal more of what’s on the horizon. See you there.
