It’s all about being a female…Girls it’s time for Girlfriend Talk!
Hey girls! It’s been a while since I last posted, what with being swamped at work, getting engaged and trying to fit the gym in too. Throughout the past few weeks one thing I’ve really missed and craved is a good old girlfriend chat. Those funny moments that only a true gf bud could truly understand. From the serious need for a shoulder to cry on to the downright outrageous moments that give you hysterical giggles. Since my besties seem to all be globetrotting at the moment, I’ve decided to dedicate this blog to them, consider this our much needed girl talk til the next time we meet.
It’s time to get down to the nitty gritty about those moments that define female-ness, I asked this question to a few friends and unsurprisingly we all could relate to these moments. So here’s the results of my research:
The Undying Belief that we can stretch it
How is it that we all find ourselves in ‘tight’ situations. C’mon you know what I’m talking about. Trying on that dress/top/fashion item that wasn’t going to work from the beginning. Y’know that feeling of putting on a dress you’re just dying to wear, only to find it not only doesn’t fit you, you now can’t actually get out of it. It’s hilarious and sad at the same time. I remember once I had to get my boyfriend to actually cut me out of my treasured dress.
But what if you don’t even own the dress?? Stress attack, hyperventilating in the change room hahaha ok well some of us remain calm but I’m sure your inner turmoil has got you thinking, oh god how can I make this situation less embarassing?
The Handbag a.k.a the household inside a bag
Hahaha, this always gets me. While I’m not a huge bag connoisseur, I, like any girl my age, love to splurge on a bag every once in a while, which as you guessed after how many years have collected quite a few. My boyfriend, oh wait haha now my Fiance still doesn’t get it.
So picture this, it’s a busy morning, I’ve got my bag with all the things I can think of as ‘essentials’ – lipgloss, powder, cellphone, work laptop, pair of spare heels, tissues, rubbing alcohol, handkerchief…ok you get the picture pretty much everything lol. But wait, driving to work 30 minutes later, stuck in traffic, I realise crap I forgot my keys that I think, oh gosh I forgot it in the other bag.
And here begins the time that defines the difference between guys and gals. My fiance starts to question me – why do you keep changing bags, or just use one bag instead of changing all the time? why can’t you be like us guys? There’s things called pockets, you can fit it all in there. I know what you’re thinking, me too, how could he ask that? hahaha one bag couldn’t possibly match all my outfits and mood hahaha.
Hmm Yes, we do seem quite silly in this scenario, but I will stick with the belief that is just a mere misunderstanding from our male counterparts hehe.
Classic Man Thinking
I came across this hilarious statement on some guys website:
(A MAN’S PERSPECTIVE)
I know I’m not going to understand women.
I’ll never understand how you can take boiling hot wax, pour it onto your upper thigh, rip the hair out by the root, and still be afraid of a spider.
Honey I’ll be done in 10minutes…2 hours later
Taking ages to get ready because you never know if Jake Gyllenhall is going to be there (Haha thanks Mish Mash for this awesome line). Well it’s true isn’t it? When we get ready, we never know who we might run into at that special club or night out on the town. It’s part of being a girl having fun getting ready with your friends too. I can remember getting ready with my bestie for Buglasan, trying hundreds of different outfits, laughing when we looked almost clownish but loving it all the same.
Who can resist a photo opp girls! Hahaha I miss this part about having my gf buds nearby. Whether it’s a ladies night out, or a day at the beach, we get a lil photo crazy! Great memories to look back on, and spot that creepy guy in the back of the photo that seems to be in like every photo! Scaryyyy :S
Get out the tub of ice cream, a couple of spoons, some tragic romantic flick we’d hardly let ourselves indulge unless this was serious. It’s period time, and while we’re sensitive, moody, tired and emotionally crazy, only a girlfriend can relate.
I acutally miss the days when I’d have an off day, periods coming and everything seems to be going wrong, and then a gf will come over and pick you up within minutes. How could any guy understand sensitive boobies I tell ya? hehe
Wait, there’s much more to come! Hope you enjoyed the first installment of girlfriend talk. Got any topics or fun female-isms you’d like to add? Hit me up with a funny email: firstname.lastname@example.org ya girlfriends! xo
