Did you know that today (February 13th) is Galentine’s Day? It’s a day officially dedicated to celebrating, yes, you’ve guessed it – your gal pals!
So, ladies, today it’s time to celebrate the important ladies in your life.
Their support, friendship, their love and their laughter have no doubt helped you through many a situation. So, now there is the perfect occasion to thank them for everything they do!
Women supporting women
Here at Johanna Elizabeth, we’re all about women supporting and lifting each other up. We’re incredibly passionate about encouraging, inspiring and empowering women.

We know that female friendship can play a huge role in making us all feel better about ourselves.
Having even just one girl friend who truly gets you is worth its weight in gold, right? Which is why we felt that Galentine’s Day was definitely a day worth celebrating.
Tell us the story of you and your best girl friends!
So, in the spirit of Galentine’s Day, today we’d love you to tag a friend on our ‘Galentine’s Day’ post on Instagram over at @johannaelizabethuk and in your comment tell us about the friendship you share with them.
- When did you first meet? What was it that brought you together?
- What has your friend helped you through?
- How does she light up your life? What are you grateful to her for?
- Or something else about your friendship that makes it so special.
We’d love to hear your stories of women supporting women!
If you’re a member of our new ‘Make It Happen’ Facebook group, we’ve also got a thread dedicated to Galentine’s Day. Do please pop you stories in there too!
How to treat your best girl friends this Galentine’s Day
Unfortunately, as I write this it’s still lockdown here in the UK, so we can’t all get together with our girl friends but we can still celebrate our best girl pals though!
Hop on a Zoom or Facetime call. Catch up, share memories, have a laugh together.
It will certainly lift your spirits and give you a boost!
