I’m sitting in my apartment on this warm February morning. Wait! What? It’s warm in February? Usually this month is unbearably cold but, if the weather stays in the high 40s, low 50s, it will be quite pleasant. I always find February to be a tedious bore, but there are still some things to look forward to. For one, Valentine’s Day can be annoying to some but as a girly girl, I am a sucker for it. I am that person who dresses up all in pink, eats candy hearts, and loves a romantic candlelit dinner. What about you? Do you like celebrating this day of love, or do you think it’s a corny holiday invented by Hallmark? Even though I usually spend February counting down the days until March, I was still able to come up with a list of my favorite things for this month that will hopefully make it more bearable. Just remember, even though it’s leap year, it’s still a shorter month. Once it’s over, we’ll be one step closer to spring! Don’t be a stranger; let me know in the comments below what your favorite things are for February.
GALENTINE’S DAY: There are a lot of things we have thanks to the TV show Parks and Rec: a love for mini horses and Chris Pratt, but, most importantly, Galentine’s Day. Leslie Knope created this girls only holiday as a way of taking time away from the boys in our lives for some much needed female bonding. Whether you like Valentine’s Day or not, invite the girls over for a PJ party with spa activities, junk food, girly drinks, rom-coms and make it a girls night to remember!
LET’S PARTY: On February 28th invite people over for an Oscar party! As a film lover, I have always enjoyed every aspect of the Oscars from the red carpet show, honoring the history of film, the host’s monologue, and to see whether your predictions come true. So pop open the champagne, fill out your ballot, and take a tip from these fun ideas on how to host the perfect Oscar party. Check back the next day and see who made my best and worst dressed list!
FASHION MONTH: It’s that time of year again, when we are all obsessively glued to our computers watching fashion show after fashion show. Starting in New York and ending in Paris, I can’t wait to see what beautiful creations walk down the runway for Fall/Winter 2016!
GETAWAY: Whether you prefer traveling by plane, train, or automobile, February will go by a lot more quickly if you have a fun trip planned. I will be going to California later this month and I couldn’t be more excited. I found this fun article about the best winter road trip destinations you can take. There are so many places on this list I want to visit. How about you?
HIDE OUT: I know I said it’s going to be a warmer month than usual, but it’s still not cold enough to enjoy drinks at a rooftop bar. A while back I posted my favorite bars to go to in NYC to escape the cold weather. I still recommend them all and think they are the perfect places to go for a drink in a cozy bar on a cold night.
COUCH POTATO: Why leave your apartment this month if you don’t have to? Here is a great list that breaks down all of the new movies and TV shows streaming online. So I have to ask, are any of you going to watch Fuller House? I was, of course, a fan of the original, but I’m not sure this reboot is necessary.
