This February, we bring you the hotlist to help celebrate your best Galentine’s day yet!

Some of you might ask, what is Galentine’s Day? It all started in 2010 with Leslie Knope, the star of the popular TV show, Parks and Recreation. Leslie Knope introduced the fun and empowering holiday made by woman for woman, as she put it “ladies celebrating ladies”. On February 13th, Galentine’s day is a special way to celebrate the love between you and the wonderful woman in your life. It is a holiday that goes beyond romantic love by celebrating the bond and friendship between you and your special gals. This February invite all of your kindred spirits, from your grandmother to your neighbor, and celebrate your Galentine’s day together! 

Here are some hot things this month that will be perfect for this season’s celebration.
