Ladies, it’s time for some real talk. Lovers will come and go. Jobs are won and lost. But no matter what happens, your girls will be there in a crunch. Today is National Girlfriends Day, an annual event that rolls around every August 1. It’s a time to honor your “ride or die” crew of homegirls! So, why do we love our girlfriends so much? Because they’re like sisters but without any of the growing-up baggage. Plus, when times are tough, your girls will let you vent and when you’re done; they will offer up the support you need to get through.
Spa days, weekend retreats, pajama parties complete with wine and nachos are even better when your girlfriends join in the fun. This year on National Girlfriends Day, spend some delicious time gossiping about lovers past, present and future. Discuss your hopes and dreams in a really safe space, the circle of sisterhood.
National Girlfriends Day Activities
Organize a paint night with your girls
Painting and drinking? Sign me up! Going to a paint nite is a sweet idea for a night out with your girls—you even get a souvenir to remember it. For those who are not so artistically-inclined, the staff gives easy-to-understand instructions for the painting of the night. If yours still comes out bad.... just blame the alcohol.
Instagram or it didn't happen
Nothing says "I love you" than a selfie with the favorite females in your life. Why can't #WCW be every day?
Everyone loves a spa day
Invite the girls over for a spa night! Make your own pedicures, facials, the works. Your girlfriends will thank you for the pamper-filled day.
Why We Love National Girlfriends Day
They're with us through the best and worst of times
We might be living the high life or getting pounded by life's lemons but no matter what, they're always there to offer perspective, celebrate our strengths, and provide unconditional love.
They make the best dessert buddies
Whether you just want to indulge in a sweet treat or you're going through a tough breakup, there's no better person to eat ice cream straight out of the carton with.
They know how to party
Few people can top a night out with your girls. Since they know you better than anyone else, they know exactly what you need to have a good time. Whether that be dancing, eating a nice dinner, or just posting up on the couch, you can always count on them to paint the town red!
