Hi ladies! With a pair of sisters fronting the TCL label, it is no surprise that the culture in our office centers around sisterhood which is illustrated perfectly by co-founders Bree and Bert! Did you know that despite an age gap of 4 years, these sisters have gone through thick and thin together since their adolescence days to build the brand that we are today! In TCL, we celebrate the sisterly bonds between colleagues, friends, and of course family (P.S. All of us fondly address ourselves as one big TCL family!).
This week, we are celebrating sisterhood and not to forget, friendship! Although best friends are not sisters by blood, they are sisters by heart. They are the ones who make your problems their problems, so that you do not have to go through them alone. They are the ones who know how you feel without you having to utter a single word. They are also the ones who complete your sentences and wear matching outfits with!
We’re sure that by now, your mind is already conjuring images of your best friends and all that they have done for you, but here’s a quick food for thought: when was the last time you truly took some time off to spend with them? In a city where the pace of life is alarmingly fast, we often find ourselves being distanced from our closest friends due to work commitments, conflicting schedules and just life, in general.
The good news is: it doesn’t have to be that way! Many people will walk in and out of your life, but only true friends will leave footprints in your heart. It is of utmost importance to cherish these precious bonds forged between you and your best friends, and hence we have some tips for you to let the sisterhood continue blossoming!
1. Take the initiative.
There’s always the inertia to make the first move, but once you have started the ball rolling, your best friends will reciprocate and you can create endless memories together! Start by inviting your squad to dinner, who knows, it could become a weekly affair if all parties continuously make the effort and it would feel like your golden days are back again!
2. Deliver unexpected gestures.
Do you ever get those moments where your best friend tags you on a meme on Instagram and you break into a smile because of it? Small acts of joy like these could definitely make one’s day and it is almost an effortless task! If your best friend’s love language is receiving gifts, why not treat her to an e-gift card from us? We’re sure this unexpected gift would keep her smiling throughout the week!
3. Listen to them.
It’s the friends that you can call up at 4 am that matter. Always be there for your best friends when they need you the most. Be it a ranting session or offering them your shoulder to cry on, your best friends would definitely appreciate a listening ear when they are feeling vulnerable.
4. Be yourself!
We’re sure that’s why you and your best friends have such a tight, sisterly bond! Best friendship is when your best friends know all about you but like you anyway! Treat them the way you would like to be treated and most importantly, be genuine and honest with them!
It is often said that diamonds are a girl’s best friend, but it is your best friends who are truly your diamonds. We hope that this little post has been meaningful and provided you with an extra incentive to spend more time celebrating your friendships!
