February 13th used to be just an ordinary day but thanks to the brilliant Leslie Knope it's only the best day of the year! Happy Galentine's Day! We're convinced there is no better way to spend the day than celebrating with the ladies in your life because let's be honest, whether you're married, single, or stuck in limbo...we need gal pals.
Take a peak at some of the charming spots we found in the city that never let's us down, some Galentine's gift ideas, and a bit of inspiration talk!
This San Francisco Galentine's trip we fell in love with the Marina District and all of the beautiful homes that dwell in its district. Not to mention, one of the most inspiring and architecturally beautiful structures can also be found in this area, the Palace of the Fine Arts! Other than it's obvious beauty the story behind the palace is just as great as the structure itself. After the earthquake of 1906 San Francisco leaders had a vision that the city could be an international city. The Palace of Fine Arts was a portion of a few buildings that became known as the Panama Pacific International Exposition. The goal behind these buildings was to encourage people from all around the world to gather and trade goods, turning San Francisco into the diverse city that it is today!
Our hearts were fluttering at The Dorian with their perfect ambience created through the mix of edgy and victorian vibes. This spot has wooed us back for more of those tasty lavender garnished libations. Just look at that bundle of pure purple bliss!
A major plus, The Dorian has a cat wall video photo booth! That's right, we wrote cat wall and photo booth in the same sentence. A dream come true for the cat lady that lives inside of us and an easy way to get a boomerang video of all the gal pals in one shot!
Sometimes all you need in life is your gals and a cupcake. That's exactly what we got at Kara's Cupcakes. With their perfectly sized mini cupcakes, we didn't feel too guilty about indulging in some sweet treats. Plus, we probably laughed all those calories off anyway.
What better way to celebrate your best gals than with a few of their favorite things! You can never have too many clutches or "all the things" bags. This Ban.do clutch is the perfect mix of pink and gold (swoon). If you haven't heard of Ban.do they specialize in accessories and gifts! The best part is that it's run by a creative girl gang out of Los Angeles! A purchase from Ban.do will support business women and also give you something awesome to give your bestie. Include something with some inspirational words to live by and a dreamy scent, like this pineapple meringue candle. We also found a cute little keychain that just so happens to be in the shape of one of our favorite food groups, pizza! :)
Ladies, now is the time to love one another. Find your gals, welcome in new ones to the Babes Club, and start believing in each other. Here at OHBI, we strive to encourage living an authentic life. A life where you can love and be loved. As women of today's world, let's stop self-comparison for inspiration and strive to be women of self worth who breath life instead of dishearten one another. Basically, what we're trying to say can be summed up by the Spice Girls, "Um, blah, blah, blah, Girl Power"!
