If you are unfamiliar with Galentine's Day, it 's time to learn. This term was coined by Amy Poehler's hilarious character on Parks and Recreation, Leslie Knope, and involves putting your sisters before your misters (quite literally). So invite your favourite girls over on the day before Valentine's, and plan the perfect girls night out! 


Celebrating your single-hood or simply find Valentine's Day extremely overrated, whatever maybe the reason Galentine's Day is must celebrate this year. Get together your fave girls in the world each and get each other gifts, eat (and drink) everything you love, dance the night away and wrap it up with some bedtime gossip!

If you aren't sure how to celebrate, we have some ideas right here for you - 

a) Take a class or a workshop with your friends. May it be zumba, photography, hip hop, or pottery, it'll definitely bring you closer together! 
b) Get makeovers together, and then flaunt your new looks out on the town. 
c) Choose a cozy night in to watch movies, play video games, and demolish ice cream by the pound. 
d) Set up a classy wine and paint night, where you paint away your feelings over a glass of your favourite Chardonnay. 
e) Instead of a typical night of drinks, go out and explore your city in the day. Art exhibits, heritage buildings, comedy shows, anything that'll work your brain. 
f) Speaking of exploring, go on a trip! Even if it's a day trip just outside the city, it'll be a good way for you to get some quality time in with your girls!

It's so easy to overthink your first date - what to wear, what to talk about, where to go - basically any and every minute detail that can impact how the date goes. But of course that (and a few other things) are not really a good idea. Here's what else you probably should be mindful of - 


a) Talking more than listening 
If you really want to get to know someone, you have to be able to listen in silence without making things about yourself. If you do all the talking, they might just feel like you're a little self-centred, and nobody wants a second date with that! 

b) Not asking interesting questions 
This may seem obvious, but dig a little deeper with us. The generic spiel of "what do you do" can get dull very quickly, and doesn't really make for memorable conversation. Add to that question by asking where they got the passion for their work, and where they see the industry going in the future. 

c) Being overly mocking 
They say that the best way to get along with someone is to make jokes about them, but there's a limit to the same. Be mindful to not mock everything around you; you don't want to come off mean. Be mindful to take the jokes on yourself just as much as you dish them out to others! 

d) Dress like someone you are not 
Like we said, it's easy to overthink the perfect first date outfit. It might even lead you to go outside your own, and end up in an outfit that makes you feel uncomfortable, and something which isn't really you. So as it goes for the other stuff, remember to dress like yourself too!

Are you single and bored AF? Sick of enduring the daily grind without a hint of romance on the horizon? Want to pass the time with someone who gives you butterflies? Stop waiting around and start making things happen!

Read on to see 7 tips for asking a guy out...

1) Firstly, ask yourself this: "Does he even know I exist?" I needn't say why it's important to be honest with yourself in this situation. If your crush is someone you admire regularly from afar but haven't had any interaction with whatsoever, you need to work on that before even thinking about asking him out. Smiling, a casual wave, or even polite chit chat will suffice. 

Build up to it - don't ambush the guy and open with your desire to jump his bones after dinner and a movie. It's creepy when a guy does it to you, so don't think it wouldn't be if a woman did it either.

2) You don't HAVE to say "Will you go out with me?" A simple "We should go out sometime" or "Wanna go for a drink?" will suffice. The first option allows you to gage his enthusiasm and the second one isn't as scary it may seem. People ask each other to go out for drinks all the time and even if he says no, he'll most likely respond favourably in terms of re-scheduling. 

If you want to make it clear that it's NOT a platonic request, you can always close with "It's a date."

3) If you're asking him out via text or Whatsapp, keep it short, friendly, and to the point. Don't use any emojis whatsoever - not even a smiley face. Emojis are for friends, family, and co-workers you're on good terms with. Emojis aren't for a grown woman asking a man out on a date for potential sexytime. Also, one "x" at the end of your message will do. Additional ones should be earned, not given away freely. 

4) When asking him out face-to-face, same goes. Flirting is good but be conscious of whether you're doing things like twirling your hair around your finger or having a giggling fit. You're grown now - you've got this!

5) That said, it's ok to be nervous. No-one is born with a boatload of Kardashian confidence. Don't beat yourself up for chickening out or if you stumble over your words. It happens! You're only human. If you're feeling embarrassed afterwards, whether he answered "yes" or "no", there's no need to replay the exchange over and over again in your head and overanalyse what just occurred. 

6) If he says "No" because he has a girlfriend or wife, that's fair enough. It's not actually a rejection if him saying "Yes" was never an option to begin with.  

7) Stop giving a f*ck. Seriously, like the Nike slogan says, JUST DO IT. If he says "No", doesn't read your message, has read your message but doesn't respond, responds but only does so 3 weeks later, or even if he laughs in your face (highly unlikely unless you really know how to pick 'em), just ask someone else out! Simple.

If you've finally found the right match on Tinder or mustered courage to ask that special person out, chances are you're wondering what you should wear and how you should look on your special evening. Well, while the first main mission of approaching someone has been accomplished, it's now time to groom yourself to perfection. Below are some tips on how to dress for your first date. 


Dresses Are Always A Yes 
Choose a colour that compliments your skin type, or simply go for your favourite dress that your body is comfortable in. Depending on the place, choose the type of fabric or style of dress because if it's an unconventional setup, you wouldn't want to be restricted in a stealth dress when you can be comfortable in a maxi, emirate? 

No To Dress, But Yes To Skirts! 
We understand why dresses may be not be an option this time! Unlike dresses, skirts are most definitely not a cliche and can be worn in several ways. Pencil skirts look great with crop tops and heels or sneakers depending on your plans! Or maybe just opt for a maxi skirt for utmost comfort. 

When All Fails, Choose The Maxi 
Maxi is the epitome of comfort and style! When dresses or skirts don't work, go for a comfortable yet stylist maxi which is going to make you look and feel gorgeous. To break the monotony, play around with prints -- florals or geometric -- both can make you feel quite special on this special day. Agree? 

Check out some of our fave pieces we'd wear on dates down below!

There are loads of articles all over the internet that lay down soppy requirements for good relationships like "They should send you a good morning and goodnight text everyday" and "They should take you out to nice places".  


But we call nonsense! A real relationship is about a lot more than good morning texts or nice restaurants. Here's the real checklist to find if you're dating the right person or not.

They find reasons to talk to you instead of excuses not to  
Something funny happened in office? You're the first person they text. Just having a crappy day and want to feel better? They text you. 

A significant other who truly loves you will want to talk to you for anything and everything.  

They support you through the bad times and rejoice with you in the good times  
They should always be there by your side, whether it's to hold you while you cry about having a fight with your parents, or clinking glasses with you over getting that long-awaited promotion. 

You have healthy lives outside of each other  
While it's obviously important to have things in common and share important aspects of your lives, it's also important to have interests and activities independent of each other. 

There's little to no jealousy in your relationship 
You're just so secure in your relationship that there's never any reason for jealousy when they spend time with other people. 

There's no power play in your relationship 
You both see it as a relationship of two equals who love each other, and nobody is "in charge". 

So, does your relationship check these boxes?

Getting over a breakup is a herculean task in itself, let alone the worry of how to get back into the dating game. And if you've just gotten out of a long-term relationship and forgotten about the last time you met someone new and did the whole dating dance, things can seem even more daunting! 


So, Shopcade's here to help you get back into the dating game if you just finished getting over a breakup, or even simply want to get back to dating after taking a break from it for other reasons.

Simply follow these tips, and you'll be meeting cool new people and rocking the dating world in no time! 

Spruce yourself up 
Sometimes, a new look is all you need for a confidence boost. Do anything that makes you feel good about yourself—get a new haircut, buy a few new clothes/shoes/cosmetics, or even just get a manicure. 

Socialise more with friends and colleagues 
By going out with your friends and colleagues, you will have more fun and are automatically more likely to meet new people, and, by extension, a new partner. 

Keep your mind open 
If you've just gotten back into the dating pool after a long relationship or hiatus, don't limit yourself by having specific expectations like "I only want to hook up" or "I only want to date a certain type of people". Let yourself go with the flow, and you'll have many more fun and exciting experiences. 

Don't be afraid of online dating 
Don't have the time or inclination to go to parties and get-togethers? No worries. Online dating apps like Tinder and Hinge are losing the stigma they once had, and you can meet all sorts of cool people on them. Don't be reluctant to try out the world of online dating. You never know, you might just meet the perfect person on there! 

Ask your friends to set you up 
Ask your close friends to set you up with someone, and they'll be sure to rack their brains to find someone they think you'd get along with. And what's better than meeting someone who comes pre-approved by a friend, right?

Welcome to the first 'Ask Us Anything', where we'll be dishing out advice on anything and everything. Whether you just want an objective opinion over a life choice you've made, or to turn to someone anonymously to ask those hard hitting questions, that is what we're here for! 


Send in your questions to chloe@shopvolution.com, and go crazy. When we say anything, we mean anything.  As trivial as "should I get a fringe?" or as monumental as "should I marry the guy I'm dating?", we're here to help, or at the very least make you giggle. 

This weeks question is all about keeping that spark alive....

Dear Chloe,

I would love some anonymous advice from you please! Okay so, I've recently moved in with my partner, can you give me any advice on how to keep the excitement in our relationship? We have a great relationship but now we're living together I'm worried the spark will fade.

Hello lovely first 'Ask Us Anything' writer, 

Kudos for being brave and emailing us! The question you've asked is so so common, and completely normal. Taking that next step in a relationship, like moving in together, is always daunting but exciting. You can often get caught up in the whirlwind of admin and stress, which takes away from the quality time you spend together as a couple. 

If you're used to staying at one another's places a couple of times a week it isn't that hard to keep the spark going, because it doesn't feel like a routine. However, once you move in together things like cooking dinner and having sex, which use to be fun activities, can often be routinised and thus feel like a chore. So the biggest advice I can give is to break the cycle before it even begins. Don't get caught in a rut, the fact your preempting this as a problem means there's still time to fix it. 

There are many easy ways to keep that mysterious, but very important spark ignited. For example, rather than having a weekly 'date night' have a weekly 'first date'. Both put in that extra effort, like it was a first date and dress up to the nines. Then go somewhere for dinner, or another activity (theatre) that neither of you have been to before. 

Obviously, you guys are in a long term relationship so pretending to be on an actual first date would be a little weird, I'm not suggesting role play here, just effort. Each week, when your 'first date, date night' comes around your main task is to find something out about your partner that you didn't know before. However small and insignificant, like what their favourite childhood book was, as this will add that jovial giddyness we get from the honeymoon stage of getting to know someone. 

Another big tip for keeping that spark alive now that you're living together is to keep your independence. Don't crowd each other, don't spend every second of your free time together. Why? Because you'll end up resenting the time you spend together and it will start feeling like a job. Have at least one 'girls night' a week where you have a proper natter with your friends (he should do the same) so that you don't get too dependent on one another for socialsing. 

Now, although you didn't say it explicitly, I'm guessing by 'excitement' you meant sex. Here's the thing, you and your partner have to make sure sex is a priority and that you're not 'compartmentalising' it. For example, although you both really  want to watch the next episode of GoT, if it's been a week since you had sex then that is the priority, not your latest box set obsession. Plus, why not save the episodes up for a proper lazy Sunday binge? That'll mean you have more time for coitus during the week!

Good luck with this new, exciting adventure, I'm sure it'll all work out!

Remember to send your questions over to chloe@shopvolution.com for anonymous advice...

It's that time of the week again, Friday Fashion Fix! What we all need is a good dose of colour to suit this sunny weather and get us in the FriYay mood...


Our top picks come from brands like Aeterna Style, HoloHolo and Ottoman Hands. Want a more glam beach look? Throw on a vibrant swimsuit, some dainty jewellery and reflective sunglasses- you'll be sure to steal the show on the sand! 

Hot date this weekend? Well red is the colour of love, plus it's been scientifically proven that it's the colour people are attracted to most! So slip into that LRD, but give it a twist by pairing it with an emerald green clutch for a more luxe look. 

Shopping + Friday = Happiness.

Alexa Chung loves them, she even wore them to this year's Glasto. If Alexa is a fan, then who are we to argue?


Vinyl trousers are going to be big for A/W (you heard it here first), but how do you style them? From first glance they look like trousers only the fashion-brave would attempt to wear, but that doesn't have to the case, paired with a jumper or slogan tee they can look causal-chic. 

See the edit below for our top tips on how to nail this trend...
