Advice c/o Carrie Bradshaw

Happy Monday friends! If you've been following along you probably already know that last Monday was my birthday, and this year one of my BFF's gifted me one of the full seasons of Sex and the City. Now this friend and I have literally been friends since we were like 12 (true story we used to actually hate each other) and growing up we always bonded over watching Sex and the City in high school because you know it's a great show and all.

Through all four years of high school I can tell you that SATC came on every weekday on E! at 4 and played until 6 (if you can't tell I love this show) and when I got home from school that was my routine for a good long while. Now I haven't watched it nearly as much in the past few years, just whenever I can really catch it on but looking back on this got me thinking - I learned a lot of life lessons through Carrie Bradshaw. Seriously, she made a lot of bad decisions but she gives the best advice out there and what blows my mind is that the show is now seventeen years old and those messages still ring so true.

That being said (and in honor of #mondaymotivation) today on the blog I wanted to share a few of my favorite words of advice from the infamous Carrie Bradshaw.

"I'm not afraid of heights have you seen my shoes?"

"Maybe you have to let go of who you were to become who you will be"

"Sometimes the wrong choices bring us to the right places"

"The most exciting, challenging and significant relationship of all is the one you have with yourself"

"I like my money right where I can see it - hanging in my closet"

"Maybe our mistakes are what make our fate"

"The universe may not always play fair - but at least it's got a hell of a sense of humor"

"They say nothing last forever. Dreams change, trends come and go, but friendships never go out of style"

"Maybe the past is like an anchor holding us back"

"Maybe our girlfriends are our solvates and guys are just people to have fun with"

"I don't have time for regrets, just fun"

"I'm looking for love. Real love. Ridiculous, inconvenient, consuming, can't live without each other love"

Are you as obsessed with SATC as I am? Let me know!

  13. Love SATC! Except that last movie was too painful to watch, like I'm still a little bitter it was so awful. My senior year at Ole Miss every Friday after lunch I would go get back in bed and watch a few episodes until the rest of my friends were done with class

  14. I've never watched the TV show but I have seen the first film, if that counts!? Love these quotes, especially the one about high heels, haha.
