It’s okay to be the cynic in your friendship clichés. Be fiercely independent, but be open to the idea that you too can have a Steve.


Love isn’t always romantic, and that’s okay. A bestie can be a soulmate too. Take chances, get your heart broken, fall in love.


It’s okay to love shoes more than you love people – and shopping is totally allowed to be your version of exercise. Raise a Cosmo and enjoy the little things that make you happy!

Happy Sex and the City day to fans everywhere! To celebrate, stream your favourite episodes now on Showmax.
