“To have a girlfriend and be a girlfriend Is what makes life worthwhile.”

My current stay in California couldn’t be any more special. Spending quality time with your loved ones is so special — I’m really trying to live in the moment, and cherish our time together. My time in Los Angeles with Michelle and her family was incredibly beautiful and I couldn’t be more blessed to have her in my life. Girlfriends are very important, in fact, they are irreplaceable. It doesn’t matter how long you have known your friends but instead it’s important to have a real connection with one another.

What are your thoughts?! What is your definition of a true girlfriend? Let me know by commenting below.

PS: I’m currently in San Francisco. I will be here for the next couple of weeks. I’m trying to enjoy this vacation as much as possible with our closest friends and family hence I won’t be able to respond to your comments. But you can follow my adventures on Instagram and Snapchat (@WhatWouldVWear), and I should be back to normal once we return back to Chicago.

As always, thanks much for reading & have a fabulous weekend!

Much love.

    I believe having a good girlfriend is always so important. I never believed in having one until I found her two years ago and I can’t be more than a couple of days without her. They just complete you in a great way. I am so happy you two are together Vanessa!

    Have a wonderful day, xx

    Dear V., after an offline time, due to blog’s maintenance, here I am again – your message is always so meaningful, like yourself, your heart! Enjoy your vacations, you deserve them! A friend is someone who is happy when we are happy, with our achievements and vice-versa… unfortunately reality shows us that some pretend t be our friends, to take advantage of us. But I am sure that we learn how to select and attract to each other more and more positive and genuine people! Hugs and kisses, dear V., you are always so sweet!

    This is such a beautiful post, Vanessa, and I really couldn’t agree more! Genuine good people are hard to come by these days, so when you encounter another woman who is encouraging and truly sincere, it’s like finding gold, really. I’m glad you have a good friend in Michelle! I hope you continue to enjoy your time spent on vacation with your family, enjoy every minute making those special memories! Wishing you a wonderful weekend, beautiful!

    Gracias a ti después de mucho pensarlo, a mis amigos que me animaron y a un buen día que tome la iniciativa por fin he abierto mi blog, sin embargo entre mi trabajo fijo de mas de 8hrs, vida social, la casa, la mascota y demás…! nose como llevar un buen ritmo y conseguir poder levantarlo poco a poco…

    Hi V… This shot of you and your girlfriend Michelle is soooo super cute and inspiring. My best gal friends live 100’s of miles away too so when we get together it’s a block party! Thank you for writing this post and reminding us of the power in friendship!

    I love this post! My best friend and I have known eachother for close to 12 years, and she’s such a blessing in my life. She’s like my sister, and I couldn’t be luckier.
