The Beauty of Buddies, Happy International Friendship Day

Friendship. Oh, what would we do without friendship? Friends nurture us, they allow us to be ourselves, they teach us things, and the best gift of all, they gift us with their presence and attention.

In honor of International Friendship Day, let’s observe all the ways we love our friends and express our gratitude.

Quick – get your phone and text all your friends your favorite emoticons and infinite hearts. #gratitude

So, how do we love our friends?

 

 

Friend alert #1: Crushin’

Your style is something all your own, but let’s be real. You borrow. You develop a style by taking a little from one designer, stealing a look from a random stranger. Style is everywhere and we absorb and use. Typically, we LOVE what our friends are doing.

Friend alert #2: Similarities

Look around next time you are strolling. Most friends may look similar, donning the same style or demeanor. It’s sweet. You may be more alike than you realize.

Friend alert #3: Beauty bonding

Finally, friends share their beauty secrets. They may tell us about a cool new product like Advanced Clinicals Coconut Oil Moisturizing Cream and how it contains a light lavender-coconut scent. Ooh la la! Thank you, friend.

We wear face masks together and we do each other’s hair. The ways in which we love our friends are endless. Most importantly, we enjoy each other's company. 

The world is such a better place with friends, so be a friend to everyone you meet.
