For those of you who are unfamiliar with the holiday: What is Galentine’s day? Let Leslie Knope define it for you.
Every February 13th, Leslie Knope and her lady friends leave their husbands and their boyfriends at home and just kick it breakfast style. Valentine’s Day may be about celebrating love, but Galentine’s day is all about friendship! Ladies celebrating ladies. I don’t know about you, but that sounds like the best idea ever.
This is why today, I collaborated with two awesome bloggers to bring you some Galentine’s day-related content! I’m sharing with you 10 ideas of things you can do with your girlfriends to celebrate Galentine’s day!
As you know, Galentine’s day is coming. It’s time to celebrate friendship and remind yourself why women totally rock! I think it’s important not to lose sight of how powerful women are and that we don’t need men to get things done. Galentine’s day is also a great opportunity to tell your girlfriends how much you appreciate them and how much they mean to you. I gathered the perfect list of movies starring kick-ass and powerful women to watch with your BFFs on Galentine’s day. So grab some popcorn and get ready for a marathon! View Post
I’ve always been known to be quite the bookworm. Ever since I’ve learned how to read, I’ve had a book by my side. I recently talked about my favorite books of 2016, and when I mentioned that I had read 75 books during the year, people seemed to be surprised. Someone on Twitter asked me how I managed to read so many books, since I also happen to be a college student, have a part-time job, and blog. I know it’s also a lot of people’s goal to read more books during the year.
Before we dive into it, there’s something I have to admit: I am a fast reader. I always have been. I can read a book in one sitting, and that usually only takes me a few hours (depending on the book). I read mostly in English, even if it’s not my mother tongue. And yes, I still read just as fast in English as I do in French, my native language. So needless to say that being a fast reader plays a big part when it comes to fitting books into my schedule. But I still have few tips that might be able to help you reaching your reading goals! View Post
Who else is excited to finally be on winter break? *raises hand* This semester might not have been as hard as my summer one, but I’m still eager to be on winter break. I only have a couple more days to go through before I get there, though, but trust me I’m counting them down! (If you’re already on winter break, you are SO lucky and I envy you so much right now)
But while I love being on break from college, one of the things I struggle with most is staying busy. It’s so tempting to just lay around and do nothing all day for three weeks straight, but trust me, you’re not doing yourself any favor! It’s important to unwind and take some time to relax, but you also have to remain at least a little bit busy so it’s not too hard to go back to your regular routine when the new semester starts! That’s why I gathered some ideas of things to do during the holiday break to remain just busy enough!
December is both my favorite month of the year and the one I dread the most. Why? Well, of course, I love December because that means Christmas is coming (WINTER BREAK!!), but it also means that I have to take finals, which is pretty scary. While you need to be studying for finals, everyone else is posting cute pictures of their Christmas tree on Instagram. I don’t know about you, but during finals week, I can’t even THINK about anything Christmas-related. I mean, do I really have time for that? Well, there are a few ways you can still get in the holiday spirit during finals!
