National Girlfriends Day – 1st August

I recently found out about a campaign by Oscar Health Insurance Company to help promote National Girlfriend’s Day. My first question was who was Oscar Health Insurance?  I learnt that they are an American company who are very proactive about promoting good health and preventative medicine.  For any American readers you can find out a bit more about their insurance plans here.  The other question was what was National Girlfriend’s Day?

“National Girlfriends Day is annually recognized on August 1, as girlfriends get together around the United States and celebrate the special bond of friendship through women.

Girlfriends, some of them may even be your daughters, mothers, sisters, cousins, lifelong friends, high school friends, college room-mate etc., are the ones that are there for you.  These friends are the ones that you want to spend time with, share your secrets with, cry on their shoulders, go shopping with, get a pedicure with, and drink a glass of wine with!”


Now this is not a sponsored post or anything like that.  I just felt that it was a really great concept and relevant to all of us and so I was quite happy to promote it with a special blog post.  It is a great reminder to grab a girlfriend, go for a walk or plan to do something active together.  Follow it up with a coffee or a glass of wine and make the decision to look after your health, stay on top of your regular health checks and make sure your friends do to.  Oscar Health Insurance have also developed a Women’s Roadmap to Health which is a great resource for staying on top of those all important health checks.


Do we really need much of an excuse to catch up with our girlfriends, sisters, family?  I know I will be catching up with my Mum and sisters on our annual girls trip away and will be enjoying our time together.  Here’s hoping you all catch up with your nearest and dearest for a great weekend!!

    • Hi Alyssa – I have only just made it back after an extended stay in Bali (really tough as you can imagine). You will have to drop me a message on my facebook page, happy to catch up when you are in Panna. We are really enjoying our time here and finding lots of amazing spots to visit….so many places to explore!


  1. This reminds me of “Galentines day” I’m not sure if you have ever seen the show ‘Parks and Recreation’ but Amy Pohlers character celebrates valentines day but for best girl friends. Too cute! Will be celebrating next year for sure!
