Hello, my friends! And a happy Monday to you all! Yes, I missed my Friday post, but for a good reason! Two of my BEST FRIENDS came up to visit me this weekend!
There is something so wonderful about getting ready with your friends. It is such a nice way for you to connect and bond. Helping each other choose an outfit to wear, choosing a hairstyle, selecting the PERFECT lipstick shade, and of course, sharing clothes and accessories. Watching the way that everything comes together with ease because you are together, is so wonderful! On Saturday, we all shared our accessories, shoes, makeup, hair products, and clothes with each other to create some really great looks that we couldn’t have done on our own. How symbolic of friendship is that?
Not to mention the fact that I am VERY much a creature of habit, and am seldom compelled to deviate from my routine. My friends are great for a multitude of reasons, but they are especially WONDERFUL at helping me get out of my comfort zone. And we had so much fun this weekend. They helped me organize my closet, clean my kitchen, finish up last-minute wedding planning, and just get me out of the house!
And I think we need that in our friends! I made a joke while we were getting ready to go shopping that I felt like we were Bratz characters, because we’re all so different from each other. And I cannot articulate how much I love that about my friends. I cannot think of a way to say this in a not cheesy way… but… it’s what’s in your heart that counts!!! You don’t have to like ALL the same things. It’s nice to have things in common with our friends, but it’s not EVERYTHING.
Our lives get so hectic and sometimes we don’t spend as much time pampering ourselves as we should. And I think the people who notice when we need that extra bit of oomph the most are our friends!
And that is my reminder to try and get together with your friends sometime soon, get gussied up, and do something FUN. Sometimes, you just need to let loose a little bit. It’s good for the heart. ❤
Thank you so much for reading, my lovely internet friends!
