In honour of Galentine’s Day (and because we just need any excuse to dress up and take pictures together!), my bestie Parul Kakad aka @mumbaimummy and I did a BFF shoot to document our 15+-year-old relationship and remind you that this week of “love” isn’t just about romantic love. Anyone who makes you feel like your best self deserves a shout-out today (and every day!)
Someone once told me, “that love isn’t always what you feel about someone else, it’s how they make you feel about yourself” and I truly believe I am the very best version of “me” when I’m with my girlfriends. So this is a special shout out to my main—we documented 5 fun things to do with your Galentine today, (or every day!). Scroll ahead to check!
1. Spa It Up!
Some of my best therapy has come out of girlfriend debriefs with rollers in my hair and nail-polish drying on my toes. (Tears optional!)

2. Sweat It Out!
Parul is fitness goals with four kids (!) and a banging body and I’m happy to pose in workout gear anytime! :)

3. Retail Therapy
Nobody can argue that little shopping is good for the soul.

4. PJs and drama
Or romantic comedies mostly. Confession; I legit ate all the popcorn on set that day.

5. Glam it Up!
Because girlfriends that party together… cue in what you feel right! (Make sure you get home in one piece!)

Big love to everyone who brought this entire series to life. Shruti Tejwani, you are an absolute star, what a brilliant concept, and nobody shoots the way you do! Full heart and so much masti! The doodles were an epic touch, beautifully designed by @PixelonPaper and the shoot was styled by the fabulous Neha Maru. Our makeup gurus were Neha Oberoi, Pooja Gwalani and hair by Kamal Palan.
Thank you to these wonderful brands for dressing us up, twinning is winning! :) @shrutitejwaniphotograph, @justbillidesigns, @papadontpreachbyshubhika, @punk_houseofcouture (which is Parul’s own brand with her partner Khusboo!), @younglings_india and @thelittlegift.co
