Ovaries before brovaries am I right?


Everyone knows that Valentine's is that special day where you get chocolate, some flowers and affection from that special someone. Well, assuming you're actually going out with someone (rare in St Andrews).

Galentine's Day reminds to love and appreciate female friendship. . Especially at university, when schedules clash and life is chaotic, making time for our besties can be difficult. This is the perfect day of the year which allows us girls to appreciate and be grateful for all the friendships we have, because ultimately that love is so important.

The most important holiday of the year falls on February 13th, so even those not on the singles market can celebrate with their girlfriends without abandoning their boo. Although St Andrews is a small town, options are not limited when celebrating what should be a national holiday. So take a look to see where you should go this Galentine's Day.
