All things Galentine's day

Yes, we are all aware of the famous celebratory day of love, Valentine's day, but have you heard of Galentine's day?! It may be our new favourite 'fake' holiday! A play on the name Valentine's to celebrate our favourite 'gals'. 

Whether you are celebrating Valentine's or not, have a little think about Galentine's, which speaks all self-love, showering your female friends with love and support. It promotes all things girl power, a day where we can indulge and love ourselves and celebrate the amazing women surrounding and blessing our lives. 

There is no right or wrong way to celebrate Galentine's, and that's the beauty of it. So join us on the 13th of Feb, put on your favourite movie, order in your delicious takeout, grab a glass of wine and sit back! Dedicate the day to things you enjoy doing, and if we cannot meet with our girlfriends because of COVID why not host a zoom quiz meeting? 

What is so wrong with treating yourself to flowers and chocolates? We love the idea! Maybe you have wanted to dedicate some self-care time, a nice pamper or skincare routine will do the trick. There may be a gift you want to purchase for yourself, which you can find plenty of on our website.

Are you curious of how this fabulous holiday came about? It happened around ten years ago, in 2010, and it was actually created by the fictional character Leslie Knope in Parks and Recreation. The episode is called "Galentine's day" where she gathers a group of her friends for a brunch, and ever since then women have loved this idea, a no-pressure, fun, and feel-good holiday with no gimmicks.

Happy Birthday Michelle Obama


As we celebrate Michelle Obama's birthday (17th January 1964) we thought we would take a look at the highlights of this inspirational African-American woman career. 

Michelle LaVaughn Robinson Obama was the First Lady of the United States from 2009 to 2017, married to the 44th president of the United States, Barack Obama. Michelle Obama was the first African-American First Lady in American history. 

Michelle was taking classes in her school's gifted program by the sixth grade and went on to attend Whitney M. Young Magnet High School (Illinoi's first gifted school). Michelle attended Princeton University and graduated with a degree in Sociology in 1985. Following this achievement, she went on to study law at Harvard Law School awarded in 1988. 

Michelle worked for the firm Sidley Austin in Chicago and in 1991 left her corporate law to pursue a career in public service as she worked as an assistant to Mayor Richard Daley. In 1996, Michelle joined the University of Chicago as associate dean of student services and in 2005 she was appointed vice president for community and external affairs. In 2007, Michelle attended compaign obligations during Barack's run for the Democratic presidential nomination.

Most notably, Michelle has given some incredible speeches throughout her career. They have shown power and have inspired many. 

September 12th, 2012, "Every day, the people I meet inspire me, every day they make me proud, every day they remind me how blessed we are to live in the greatest nation on earth."

July 25th 2016, "I wake up every morning in a house that was built by slaves, and I watch my daughters, two beautiful, intelligent, Black young women, playing with their dogs on the White House Lawn. And because of Hilary Clinton, my daughters, and all of our sons and daughters, now take for granted that a woman can be President of the United States."

January 13th, 2017, "Being your first lady has been the greatest honor of my life and I hope I've made you proud." "I want our young people to know that they matter, that they belong. So don't be afraid. You hear me, young people? Don't be afraid. Be focused. Be determined. Be hopeful. Be empowered. Empower yourself with a good education. Then get out there and use that education to build a country worthy of your boundless promise. Lead by example with hope; never fear."

Happy birthday Michelle, from all of us at Madia & Matilda.
