Written by:

Happy Galentine’s Day! While it started as a joke on Parks and Recreation, it’s become a real thing — and we absolutely love it.  Today should be a day devoted to celebrating the women in your life…and yourself. {READ: Things to Do in Hoboken if You’re Single}


I totally hate jacking these quotable things from Facebook, but since I really enjoyed this one, I’m going to share it. This was a message that was going viral on Facebook, and I thought it was such a great reminder to women. Here are 10 facts every woman should know:

1. Everyone has rolls when they bend over.

2. When someone tells you that you’re beautiful, believe them. They aren’t lying.

3. Sometimes we all wake up with breath that could kill a goat.

4. For every woman unhappy with her stretch marks is another woman who wishes she had them.

5. You should definitely have more confidence. And if you saw yourself the way others see you, you would.

6. Don’t look for a man to save you. Be able to save yourself.

7. It’s okay to not love every part of your body….but you should.

8. We all have that one friend who seems to have it all together. That woman with the seemingly perfect life. Well, you might be that woman to someone else.

9. You should be a priority. Not an option, a last resort, or a backup plan.

10. You’re a woman. That alone makes you pretty damn remarkable.
