There are two days of the year that I really look forward to when it comes to my group of girlfriends. One is our annual Galentine’s celebration and the other is our annual Cookie Exchange (in December).

Yesterday we got together for Galentine’s, and it was SO FUN!

We always get together at my friend Monica’s house, and she does the best job decorating and setting up!

We had an amazing spread of food – everything from cheese and crackers, to bean and cheese dips, to blue cheese and pear crostinis to noodles and so much more! A few of us also brought dessert. My mom made her pistachio tres leches cake, my friend Jenny brought a chocolate trifle with brownies (SO SO SO GOOD!), Monica’s neighbor sent over cookie monster cookies. A true feast!

For this particular event, we always play a white elephant type gift where each of us has to bring our favorite skincare/beauty products and/or accessories (within a specific budget). Monica changed this up this year and added a twist in how we play, and it was really fun. All of the gifts were amazing. I ended up with a Rare Beauty liquid brush, a makeup remover cloth, and a tool that helps you put on eyeliner perfectly. Can’t wait to try them all!

We ended the night with lots of chit chat and laughter! And when I say night, I mean early morning because I didn’t get to bed until 1 am! Definitely slept through my alarm this morning but thankfully I got everyone where they needed to be on time.
