Ever since the book came out, I've received feedback about how it's made women think about friendships throughout their lives, as well as who is in their lives now. The goal of this blog is to open up and create a dialogue about friendships: the good, the bad, and the ugly.

Each week I will post my thoughts, experiences, as well as various articles, topics or quotes that I feel are important when examining female friendships. Please feel free to leave comments; I look forward to hearing from you!

Fun Friendship Book

If you're looking for an entertaining and amusing activity to do with your BFFs, I'd recommend getting your hands on 101 Quizzes for BFFs: Crazy Fun Tests To See Who Knows Best! by Natasha Burton.  You can choose from "would you still hang out with me if..." questions and hypothetical "what would you do" situations to truth and dare type of questions and scenarios.  There's also situations in which you have to think fast and give the answer that comes right to your mind.  I like how Burton states in the introduction that there is no right or wrong way to use the book, and that some of the scenarios and questions may not apply to you and your friend.  Therefore, you're welcome to use the book how you see fit based on the type and level of friendship.

I couldn't wait go through the book with one of my best friends, who lives in another state.  I asked some silly questions and then would ask the more serious ones.  By the second or third question, we were giggling like children when she would share her answers.   I liked the variety and how some of the questions led to interesting discussions.  I also gained more knowledge about my best friend, which I appreciated.

Old or young, this book provides an opportunity to get even closer to your BFF (yes, it's possible!) and of course, have a good time!  You may find out even more juicy information about your friend and vice versa.  So go ahead and invite your BFFs over, get Burton's book and be prepared to laugh...A LOT!

I have received mixed feedback on my Huffington Post article 4 Reasons Why I'm Not Watching The HBO Show Girls This Season.

Some people agree with what I wrote, such that they also could not get into the show; while others expressed reasons why they like the show.

What are your thoughts?
