We’re definitely celebrating our SHE-ROES this month here at Girlfriendology! It’s International Women’s Friendship Month and we have LOTS to celebrate! Just to get us started, let’s celebrate the benefits of female friendship:

Girlfriends make us …

  • Healthier
  • Happier
  • Less Stressed
  • Live Longer
  • Feel More Beautiful

(If Oprah or CVS or anyone sold a pill that had that impact, don’t you think EVERYONE would buy it?!)

September is International Women’s Friendship Month and we want to encourage you to celebrate your female friends – WITH your female friends! Here are a few ideas:

Thanks Kappa Delta for these ideas on how to celebrate female friendship:

  • Send a card or short note to your best friend telling her how much she means to you.
  • Celebrate your relationship over high tea or coffee.
  • Remember a special friend with a book of poetry or fiction.
  • Send a card, and perhaps a photo, to a faraway friend.
  • Plan a girls’ night out. Go see a movie. Make reservations for dinner.
  • Visit a spa together. Make appointments for manicures. Get make-overs.
  • Reconnect with a childhood friend with whom you’ve lost contact.
  • Sign up for a cooking or gardening class.
  • Plan an adventure. Go hiking, hot-air ballooning, white water rafting, etc.
  • Start up a book club with close friends.
  • Send flowers to your mother, sister or other relatives who have also been a good friend to you.
  • Hand out goodie bags to your female coworkers. Include a note about International Women’s Friendship Month.
