Fabulous Friday – 12 February 2016

Fabulous Friday Button

I used to do this post and got away from it for whatever reason. This makes me sad because we should always find ways to celebrate the little things in life. Also, what better day on which to do this than Fridays? So, here are the things that make this a Fabulous Friday for me this week.

  • Galentine’s Day – This weekend is Valentine’s Day, but screw that. I will never understand why people need a day to express their love and affection towards others. Shouldn’t we doing that every day? ANYway, shout out to Leslie Knope for Galentine’s Day. A day devoted to spending time with your girl besties? Absolutely! This year, I have plans to meet one of my besties for a night on the town. I cannot wait!

What makes this a Fabulous Friday for you?
