Every blonde needs a brunette best friend. Maybe that’s why Erica of FASHIONlush and Lauryn of The Skinny Confidential are a brunette and a blonde with an inseparable bond. These besties even run a blog design company together called Blog-Doo! Their Galentine’s day consisted of braids, dancing in the rain, a little bubbly and a couple of LuLu*s favorite dresses! We love Erica’s edgy all black ensemble, completed by our Swinging Sixties Black Mini Dress, and Lauryn’s show-stopping look in our gorgeous Bariano Awards Winner Coral gown.

GeneralGalentine’s Day Guide

VDayBlogHeaderGalentinesGuide2February 14th gets plenty of hype, but all too often people forget about the importance of celebrating your gal pals . . . that’s where Galentine’s Day comes in! February 13th, or Galentine’s Day, is all about celebrating your female friendships. What’s the best way to celebrate? By throwing a little Galentine’s brunch bash and inviting all your besties! We’ve got a few tips to help make this Galentine’s Day the best one yet!

1) Heart-Shaped Deliciousness: You’d be amazed how many different foods can be made in the shape of a heart! We recommend you invest in some heart cookie cutters and get creative. Pancakes, french toast, eggs, fruit, doughnuts, all these brunch classics (and more!) can be turned into Galentine’s themed treats.

2) Signature Sippers: Mimosas are the quintessential brunch beverage, so give then a Galentine’s twist by using ruby red grapefruit juice or cranberry juice instead of the traditional OJ. Or, skip the champagne all together and try mixing juice with the clear soda of your choice to add some bubbly fun. Don’t forget to garnish! We say go with some sweet strawberries, or take a little inspo from our first tip and garnish with a piece of heart shaped melon.

3) Creative Cards: Show your gal pals how much their friendship matters with a homemade Galentine’s Day card. You can look for inspiration from famous besties (you’re the Anne Perkins to my Leslie Knope!), or break out the doilies and red paper and make something that captures the style of the season. Either way, gifting your girls with a little homemade card is a heartfelt way to let them know you care!
