What Does Friendship Mean To You? With Pandora


I’ve had a few funny friendships in my time. As we grow older our circles become smaller (usually) At school I was basically friends with everyone, everyone in my year, most people in the year above and from different schools. Now I don’t speak to really.. any of them. Over the last couple of years, I’ve started to realise that, people aren’t always who you think they are and that’s okay!

What is friendship?

Friendship, to me, is two people who get each other, where there is no judgement and complete honesty in every situation. Friendship is about sharing experiences and creating memories together. It’s abit weird really when you think about it.. Just picking out a human and thinking I want to do fun stuff with you haha.

Friendship is about spontaneously going on adventures and it’s about happiness. True happiness is when you’re making amazing memories with the people you love and care about. Friendship means that person 100% has your back even when they least want to and vice verse. Friendship is being able to call someone and them be there when you need them. Friendship is knowing what will make the other happier, I mean Alex isn’t going to serve me fish on a plate with some bread and be like HERE’S YOUR FAVE DINNER.. She knows full well I hate fish and I’m gluten intolerant!

Friendship requires you to think before acting, it forces you to be in tune with someone else’s feelings and genuinely care about them. If you aren’t a Loyal friend, what kind of friend are you? It’s a mutual affection between two people. Friendship is something I have and I’m sure we all have, taken for granted in the past. I’d love you to be a little mindful so here’s an activity, for you to do right now..

  1. Text your best friend and tell them they’re a great person, you’re glad to have met them and you’re so happy to be able to share amazing memories with them
  2. Have a little think if theres anything you can do to be a better friend? Be honest with yourself and think about it! Maybe you need to talk something over with a friend that you’ve been holding back?
  3. Are there any “friends” in your life, right now, that you don’t need? Press that delete button and lose the negativity.
  4. Do something this week that your best friend will thank you for. -Maybe get them a drink, or a card? something to show some appreciation!

One of my most recent friendship memories I wont forget – I got invited to a Pandora event, it was their summer party and me and Alex spend the whole day together, playing games, getting physic readings, taking photos of our matching jewellery and fooling around. That’s what friendship is to me. If you find a friend whose honest, loyal, will call to see if you’re okay then hang on to them because they are quite rare. No jealousy, No weird attitudes just pure honesty they are the rare traits. There are so many “friends” I’ve come across who, were never really my friend, maybe jealous? maybe they just didn’t support me or want me around… Who cares, focus on the good positive people you have in your life and everything will be just fine.

Pandora, a sentimental brand. Affordable but beautiful, timeless pieces. There would’ve been no better gift to share with my best friend and of course we got matching ones, special friendship bracelets.

    Loved this post Lauren, so inspiring! Friendship really is a funny thing – I’ve lost friendships that I never imagined that I’d lose, but then I’ve made friends with so many amazing people, who I hope will be there for a life time. It’s completely a two way street & it’s so important to treasure those who are closest to us. Definitely going to take part in your activity. Also love the jewellery – you & Alex look gorgeous in these photos. x
