Event Recap |Fun Times at #GalentinesDayPJBrunch !Celebrating #GalentinesDay in #Raleigh #NC

Product gifted to SobeSavvy.com by Bedlam Vodka, Hard Candy and Lit Cosmetics

I have never celebrated Galentine’s Day before until this past Saturday when the lovely Nekeyeta Newkirk (Raleigh’s BBU Director, Stylist & Blogger @the_key2style) invited me along with some fellow bloggers and closest friends to a Galentine’s Day Pajama Jam Brunch. I love a great theme party as well as a chance to fellowship with other creatives, so I found me some PJs (shout out Carolina Thrift) and was ready to network and party! But first, I got in a quick mini photoshoot at home because that’s what we bloggers do!

Pajama Set: Soma Intimates, Embraceable Pajama Pants + Top French Scroll Black | Lipstick: Hard Candy Fierce Effects Matte , Crave

If you are like me and never celebrated Galentine’s Day before, it occurs on February 13 and its a chance for women to get together with their friends and celebrate sisterhood, friendship, Valentine’s Day and self-love! It’s a chance to connect with your tribe and support each other. We did all of that over some amazing food and drink of course. Take a look:

THE FOOD + DRINK

The Brunch menu was an amazing fusion of island and southern cuisine with buttermilk waffles including donut, blueberry and red waffle flavors and savory chicken wings sponsored by Big C Waffles + delicious strawberry cupcakes provided by Southern Lady Sweets ! Cohost Laing of Laing & Co., @justlaing, brought the vibes of the island with her saltfish and jerk chicken. Other brunch items like grits, andouille sausage, dumplings, eggs were also on the buffet style spread.

Sangria and speciality cocktails made with Durham’s own Bedlam Vodka were available to enjoy. I highly suggest when you are going to a party and asked to bring an adult beverage, #BringTheBedlam! And feel free to make this Galentine Martini aka Galentini to celebrate on Galentine’s Day or anytime!

    Galentine’s Day…What a cute idea! Looks like a great time was had by all while showing your love through networking and sisterhood!

  2. everythingcurvyandchic says:

    looks like you guys had a blast…P.S. I had no idea what Galentines Day was until I read your post #soshame lol

    • SobeSavvy says:

      When I first heard of it , I thought it was just places have drink specials for single ladies. I liks to say its a day for all women to celebrate themselves and each other.

  3. I never heard of Galentine’s Day before, but it sounds like fun! Brunch is my favorite meal, and brunch in pajamas sounds even better! I just moved to the area, so still need to meet new gals to be able to celebrate Galentine’s Day. Maybe next year 🙂

    • SobeSavvy says:

      Welcome..I moved here in 2015..I still feel new at times! I was thankful to experience my first Galentines with these ladies.

  4. Galentine’s Day sounds like a great idea but unfortunately that date will never fly for me – that’s my fiance’s birthday! It looks like you had a blast at the PJ-themed party though 😀

  5. I loveeee Bedlam vodka! So delicious, and gluten-free! Me and my gal pals celebrated Galentine’s Day before it was an actual thing. Back in high school, we would all buy each other candy for Valentine’s Day. We didn’t even realize back then how lucky we were to have each other!

  6. First of all, I love your bedding. Where did you get it? I love the idea behind having a Galentine’s Day celebration. I remember doing something similar with my friends back when we were all single.

    • SobeSavvy says:

      Thank you. If I had to guess(because I don’t remember) my bedding probably came from Ross,Marshalls. We had single, married, seperated, recently divorced women there. It was gun celebrating US.

    • SobeSavvy says:

      My idea of what Gslentines was and who it was for was the reason I never celebrated. I thought it was for single women only but glad we remixed to celebrate all women!

  7. I have been hosting my own Galentines for 6 years it is one of my favorite ways to bring amazing women together! Im glad you had a good time at your brunch!

  8. It looks like you gals had a good time. I love any party that I can attend in my pajamas. Cocktails, food, chatter and gifts. I need to get in on this next year.
