I don't know about you but I love Sex And The City. I didn't watch it right from the start as I was way too young when it first aired. But when I was old enough and when I found the dvd boxset for a very good deal I was hooked. But not only with the show. Above all with Carrie Bradshaw. To be honest, I think Carrie Bradshaw is my spirit animal as she represents most women.
Each of the girls represents one of the many stereotypes a woman can be:
- The hopeless romantic - Charlotte York
- The independent workaholic - Miranda Hopps
- The very single single - Samantha Jones
- The love seeking fashionista - Carrie Bradshaw
But why do so many women identify with Carrie? I do anyway. Let's have a look at her most famous quotes and why they are so true to (almost) every woman's life.

"Maybe you have to let go of who you were to become who you will be."
We usually have a certain image of us. And we have a vision of how we want to be. Reality and wish don't need to be too far apart but as everyone keeps evolving we always strive to be better. In order to become that we need to let go of what keeps us from changing.
"As we drive along this road called life, occasionally a gal will find herself a little lost. And when that happens, I guess she has to let go of the coulda, shoulda, woulda, buckle up and just keep going."
I don't think there is one single person who doesn't get lost on this road called adulthood. It is not an easy way to take over responsibility and it can be super hard forming any kind of relationship, wether it be friendship or romance. And we usually get caught up with expectations or how it is supposed to be. I do anyway. Right now I am learning to enjoy and accept things as they are. And to be honest with you, life is so much easier that way.
"They say nothing lasts forever; dreams change, trends come and go, but friendship never goes out of style."I don't think I need to explain this. I mean, friends come and go too but in the end, friendship is one of the most important things ever. And this doesn't change. Ever.
"You shouldn't have to sacrifice who you are just because somebody else hast a problem with it."
"Don't forget to fall in love with yourself first."
Lastly, Carrie always looks fabulous. I mean, do you remember the iconic beginning scene where she wears the light pink tulle skirt? For years I've been on the hunt for the perfect pink tulle skirt. Luckily tulle skirts are very on trend right now so chances are good I'm gonna find one soon xD
Do you love Carrie as much as I do? Or do you have any other fictional character that is your spirit animal?
Read ya soon :)
