Why make Valentines Day all about romance when Galentines Day looks so much fun. These famous ladies have stood the test of time, talk about friendship goals!
Whether it's characters from your favourite TV series, movies or real life celebrity friends that you may stalk on social media, everyone feels for the bond that these pals share. Some started as frenemies, while others co-stars, but there's no question that these duos are amazing together!
1. Penny Marshall & Cindy Williams
You probably know this pair better as Laverne and Shirley from the 1970s sitcom hit. This duo were the original BFFs and roommates, making us all hope for the day we moved in with our best friends.
2. Jane Fonda & Lily Tomlin
Many friendships in Hollywood meet as co-stars and then become friends. For Jane Fonda and Lily Tomlin, their 40 years of friendship led them to starring in the Netflix comedy "Grace and Frankie" together.
3. Jennifer Aniston & Courteney Cox
From co-starring on one of the most notable sitcom series of the late 90s / early 2000s, to Jennifer spilling the details on babysitting Courteney's kids more than 20 years later, these girls have been besties ever since Friends and the world is so thankful.
4. Tina Fey & Amy Poehler
This hilarious pair have been best friends since their early 20s and have gone on to star in movies together, present awards to each other and host the infamous Golden Globes together, more than once!
5. Maya Rudolph & Kristen Wiig
These SNL alumni are a gut-busting duo that truly screams girl power. After their SNL days, they reunited for the 2011 female-packed comedy hit "Bridesmaids," playing on-screen lifelong BFFS.
6. Cameron Diaz & Drew Barrymore
These "Charlie's Angels" co-stars still have a friendship that is going strong! Both in their 40s now, Cameron Diaz and Drew Barrymore continue to be the closest of pals and have done countless interviews praising each other.
7. Gwenyth Paltrow & Beyonce
This friendship pairing might seem a little random, but the adorable duo met through their husbands and have been incredibly close ever since. Even now, their children have play dates and brunches together, which makes us a little jealous of a toddler's social life.
8. Ellen Pompeo & Sandra Oh
Meredith Grey and Cristina Yang have been friendship goals since Grey's Anatomy first premiered in 2005. The on-screen best friend pairing put any viewer through an emotional roller coaster, so it was the best to find out these women are friends in real life too!
9. Naomi Campbell & Kate Moss
With over 25 years of friendship under their designer belt, these infamous models could possibly be the most high-fashion friend pair in the industry. Can you say power pair?
10. The Taylor Swift "Squad"
It is no secret that Taylor Swift has created the #squadgoals for this generation, as their get togethers and outings are splashed across every social media platform you can think of. You know the models and singers that are friends with Swift, but her squad also consists of Lena Dunham, Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds, Uzo Aduba, and Serena Williams!
When it comes to women and our money, most of the surveys and reports we’ve read sum up our financial situation like this: we simply aren’t on a level playing field with men. It turns out women aren’t, for example, as confident in managing financial services, we’re often reluctant to talk about cash (it’s still considered taboo) and, no surprise here, we generally don’t earn as much as our male counterparts.
All of this got us thinking—is the relationship between Canadian women and our money as dire as it seems? To find out, we've created a survey that goes deep into the minds (and pocketbooks) of women across the country specifically to find out how you feel about all-things financial. Who pays the bills in your household? Have you ever asked for a raise at work? Do you know how much is currently in your savings account?
Take our survey and find out the results in an upcoming issue. Plus, one reader will win a $250 Visa gift card just for participating.
