Princesses are inspiring because they typically kick butt while still being poised, confident, and kindhearted.
However, feeling and embodying those traits is not always easy. Thankfully, National Princess Day coming up on November 18th reminds us to get in touch with our inner princess who’s ready to rule the world.
From the 1930s until the 1990s, princesses were meant to be saved by a prince and live happily ever after. Nowadays, princesses create their own happily ever after, save the prince, and then put the prince squarely in the friend zone.
So, how does one celebrate National Princess Day?
If a marathon of all the best Disney princess movies sounds less than ideal, treat yourself to something that makes you feel like one. Book a facial or massage, get a manicure or pedicure, go on a shopping spree.
And gentlemen, there's no better way to recognize your significant other (and score bonus points) on National Princess Day than by giving them the royal treatment and making sure they feel like one.
