6 Steps to Celebrating Galentine’s Day
Galentine’s Day is a different and, based on some of BALANCE’s previous dates, better take on Valentine’s Day. It means spending time with a friend on Thursday 13 February. Linnaean is perfect for a catch-up: a restaurant, salon, store and space that also trades in advanced bio-science and high-spec beauty tech.
If you’re going to have a weekend away with a close pal, why not make the most of it? The Spa at Carden in Cheshire is jaw-dropping proof that this leisure experience has come a long way from the days of fluffy robes. You’ll find vitality pools, a mood-lit relaxation room, tranquil garden, an extensive thermal suite and more lovely things to make you go “Ooooh!” and “Aaaah!”
Looking for girl power on Galentine’s Day? Star and producer Margot Robbie has something for you: a female-focused superhero film. The Australian’s titular Harley Quinn joins forces with the likes of Huntress (Mary Elizabeth Winstead) and Black Canary (Jurnee Smollett-Bell) to take down Ewan McGregor’s Black Mask. Gleeful, neon-tinged fun. Birds Of Prey And The Fantabulous Emancipation Of One Harley Quinn is in cinemas now.

“MY HEAD’S BEEN TURNED”
Friendship isn’t getting much better than this, is it? That’s because the Boxparks at both Croydon and Wembley are hosting nightly Love Island events, where you and friends can drink cocktails while watching the ITV2 smash-hit show. Friday 14 February is the penultimate night of the run, while 12 February will have previous Love Islanders on hand for a Q&A. Plus, it’s only £10 for guaranteed entry and a cocktail.
