HOW TO PLAN THE ULTIMATE GALENTINE'S GETAWAY
If Ariana Grande’s breakup anthems have taught us anything this year, it’s to treasure your friends and keep them close at all times. Whether you’ve just gone through a breakup or are looking for an excuse to celebrate your gal pals, Galentine’s day is the best time to do it. Book a mini break with your girls and paint the town pink!
1. MAKEOVER MONTAGE
There’s nothing quite like getting pampered with your girls. So switch off your phones, disconnect and have some proper downtime before the action begins. Although beauty truly comes from the inside, there’s no reason why the outside can’t match. Pampering can be expensive, but confidence is priceless. Try Dry Bar Boston or GlamSquad.
2. IT'S ALL ABOUT THE PLAYLIST
What do you if you love someone, but you can’t find the words to tell them? Make them a mixtape, of course! Go on a Spotify deep-dive and dig out the tunes that make you smile, happy dance, or all of the above. Whether it’s TLC or Spice Girls, create the ultimate dance party for you and your girls to jump around to, hairbrush microphones encouraged. Here is our YOTEL Galentine's playlist for a bit of inspo!
3. DID SOMEONE SAY COCKTAILS?
Galentine’s day is a good an excuse as any to crack open a bottle of bubbly (get your boomerangs ready!) and get the party started. Enjoy a round of cocktails paired with an exclusive Valentine’s chocolate fondue and a panoramic view of the Boston Seaport at the SKY BAR, grab a signature cocktail at KOMYUNITI Singapore or enjoy a drink and a show at Green Room 42.

4. JAM OUT AT A CONCERT
Going to a gig with your girls is an opportunity to get dressed up and dance your socks off to your favourite band. There are events to suit everyone’s taste, so be sure to keep your eyes peeled for ones that your squad will enjoy. Try Boyz II Men in Boston or Billy Joel in New York.
5. IN NETFLIX WE TRUST
Want to keep things low-key? Skip the thrills and spills and have a movie night in. Binging your favourite shows or settling in for a movie marathon can be the ultimate bonding time. Why complicate things? Oh – and don’t forget the pizza.
6. FRIENDSHIP FIRST
Turn your memories into a mega friendship quiz, with questions throwing it back to favourite school memories, fashion faux pas and embarrassing moments. It’s a great way to track everything that the girl gang has been through over the years. While it’s fun to join in with the anti-Valentine’s celebrations, take a moment to appreciate the amazing friends you have with you. Keep the sisterhood strong and make sure to create time for it!
