So Valentines day is here and you don't have a boy/girlfriend - what do you do? Ummm, call up your other single girlfriends and have the best time ever, DUH!
Just because you're single, doesn't mean you can't have fun on the cheesiest day of the year. Here's some ideas of what to do to have the best GALentines day ever.

1) Watch chick flicks
This seems like possibly the most obvious thing in the world but it's still a great thing to do! We're suckers for a good RomCom so we love an excuse to watch one. What better excuse than being single on Valentines day? We're talking Pretty Woman, Pretty in Pink, Friends with Benefits, He's just not that into you - ugh there's so many great ones!
I'm not sure why it's a good idea to watch films about couples when you're not in one, on Valentines day of all days, but it just is. We're definitely looking forward to lighting a few candles, snuggling up and watching Trainwreck later! If you're not into RomComs it's also a good idea to watch films with a strong message about being strong women (think Eat Pray Love or Working Girl) because life isn't all about needing a man!

2) Pamper yourself
C'mon ladies, while everyone else is preoccupied with treating their boy/girlfriends lets treat ourselves. After all, we do deserve it. Whack on a chill playlist and paint your nails or do a face/hair mask and have a nice chat with your fave girls.This is the perfect way to chill with your galfriends because after all there's nothing better than a beauty sesh and a catch up.

3) Have a drink
Last year, along with our housemates, we decided that on Valentines day we weren't going to sit around and be miserable - oh no - we were going to go out and have fun. This obviously included drinking a lot (maybe too much) of alcohol. We devised a drinking game where we would scroll through our FaceBooks and every time we came across someone mentioning Love or their boy/girlfriend we would have to drink. Needless to say we got very, very drunk that night - it was so much fun though!

4) Go out for dinner/to the cinema
Just because you're not in a couple, doesn't mean you have to stay at home and pretend you don't exist. Just go out on a friend date with your favourite girls! Show everyone that you're single and you're proud of it. SISTERS ARE DOING IT FOR THEMSELVES!

Feel free to let us know in the comments what you'll be up to this Valentines day, whether it be spending it with your friends or your partner - we'd love to know!
