Tuesday, September 20, 2016 1:00 PM

We're not all Carries or Samanthas. Real chick cliques have a distinct mix of personalities that balance each other out, accentuating our positives, masking our negatives, helping to make us the best versions of our self. These are the friends who know our darkest secrets, our wildest dreams and our almost-real weight. These are the girls you trust, the ones you want to spend a weekend with; after all, vacation is where we can (finally!) relax and not deal with work drama (please stop calling us "sweetheart," Ted in Accounting) or never-ending familial responsibilities (carpools, soccer practice, PTA potlucks, Mom this, Mom that, et cetera, et all, ad nauseam, love you kids!).

So listen, today is your day. Plan your girls' getaway. Your escape from the everyday. And bring these four friends with you.
