If you’re someone who’d choose Galentine’s Day over the cliché old Valentine’s, then you’ve come to the right place to pick out a good feel-good watch for you and your besties!
Every year February 14 is widely celebrated as Valentine’s Day around the world, but has anyone thought about how annoying it is for single people to constantly have ‘the energy of love’ rubbed in our faces? On the contrary, I believe it’s the best day to spend time with the ones who will always have your back and shower unconditional love on you, no matter what! Yes, I’m talking about our fav gal pals who are our biggest cheerleaders and just simply spending time with them can make us feel like the world is such a beautiful place to live in. Galentine’s Day is the best reason to take out time for your girlfriends and have the best movie marathon. Much to our luck there are a plethora of movies to choose from that show strong female friendships.
We might have watched these movies or shows numerous times before but honestly it gives the exact same feeling of wholesomeness and relatability every time. Be it hyping each other up when we’re feeling low, helping us pick an outfit for a party we’re nervous to go to or simply talk for hours without realising the time. We’ve all seen ourselves and our best friends in these super fun female friendships that we just can’t get enough of! They’ve made us teary eyed, long for a tight hug from our besties, talk about our imaginary dream wedding, the life that we want to live and most importantly the fact that we’d stay friends even at 80!
