Via Confusedsandals Advertising [x] See? We told you Samantha Jones was one blunt, ballsy woman. She is not afraid to call out her haters and demand some honesty. Because isn't it better if everything is just out in the open? Let's just get it all out there, deal with it and move on with our lives. Samantha is a busy woman with a demanding career and busy social life.
She doesn't have time to waste on a few hateful slut-shaming neighbors. Samantha is going to do her thing and if you have a problem with it, you better be able to say it to her face. Let's borrow this attitude from Samantha and cut back on the drama, gossip and frenemies in our own lives.
Because if we want to be as fabulous as Samantha Jones, we need to cut out the drama and focus on the things that matter. She was always the naive one with perfectly prim hair and a strand of pearls. While Charlotte wasn't always the most relatable, she was eternally optimistic. Charlotte was a dreamer. And it's hard to be a dreamer when you're friends with perpetually pessimistic Miranda, overdramatic Carrie and harsh Samantha. These women do not believe in happily ever afters.
And you know what? We could use a little bit more of Charlotte's hopeless romanticism in our lives. It doesn't hurt to be a dreamer and to live life with an idealistic outlook. With all the negativity happening in our daily lives, it would actually be a nice change to have some of Charlotte's cheery optimism. Maybe that guy we went on a date with three weeks ago is going to call! It's time to start saying yes more! We say no way too often. But now is the time to throw caution to the wind, be adventurous and just say yes.
Do you want to volunteer to take the lead on this new project at work? Who cares if you don't know exactly how to do it? You'll learn along the way, ask for help and wing it. Do you want to go on a date with that guy who makes you laugh but happens to be a little shorter than you? What's the worst that could happen? Do you want to go away on a girls weekend that was spontaneously planned at the last minute?
Do you want dessert after a delicious dinner? When in doubt, say "what would Miranda and Samantha do? Via Giphy Okay, so we just told you that you should be saying yes more and trying new things. But there are situations where it's perfectly fine to say no. No is a full sentence. And you shouldn't have to defend or justify your "no" to anyone.
A creepy guy at the bar offers to buy you a drink that you don't want? You don't owe this stranger anything. Your boss drops off an extra assignment at 4: I won't be able to get that done for Monday morning. Your life outside of work is important and you shouldn't have to sacrifice it. Saying no can be empowering.
It is not something to feel guilty about or ashamed over. You are allowed to say no to the things you don't want to do. This time around Bradshaw is going to show us how to fit cardio into our daily activities. Say you don't have time to go to a yoga class or have the money for a gym membership. There's still a way to stay on top of your fitness goals and lead a healthy lifestyle.
If you shop as hard as Carrie, that becomes your cardio workout. You might even have to run if there's a sale or you're cutting it close to closing time. You've got your weights aka your shopping bags. And you can even fit in some stretching as you stand in line waiting to pay or a few squats while you're trying to get your jeans on in the dressing room.
Your body is going to thank you, but your wallet may think otherwise Writer, fashionista, complainer and hopeless romantic. As much as I rolled my eyes at some of her "problems"-like when she farted in front of her boyfriend and spent a whole episode crying to her girlfriends about it-I have always admired Carrie's ability to know what she wants and says it out loud. Because it takes a lot of guts to do that.
Not many people know what they want when it comes to love and even fewer have the guts to say it out loud. But Carrie is one of those few. She isn't going to settle. She will give up an all-expenses paid life in Paris with a successful artist in order to follow her passion and find true love.
Good for you, Carrie. We all deserve to find our true happiness. She did it all! She was able to have both a successful career as a lawyer and have a family. Sure, Miranda had to make some sacrifices. It wasn't an easy road to be a success at work and at home.
But Miranda always owned her accomplishments. She wasn't going to diminish herself and her career for any man. If a man was intimidated by her success, then he wasn't the right man for her.
Good thing she found Steve, who supported her to be as successful as she could be at home and at work. But even before Steve, Miranda was an inspiration to women everywhere making their way in a male-dominated industry while balancing a life outside of work. Throughout all of the ups and downs, boyfriends and babies, new houses and new jobs of six seasons, these four women always stood by each other. They argued, sure, but they always made up. They supported one another, made time for their friendships, gave tough love and celebrated with each other.
Above all of the beautiful fashions and dreamy men on this show, it was always the powerful friendship we most admired. Who wouldn't want to meet up with Carrie and the girls for brunch on Sunday morning? Or cocktails on a Friday night? Or a shopping trip anytime of day! Because as Carrie once said, "They say nothing lasts forever…dreams change, trends come and go, but friendships never go out of style.
