An open letter to my buddy Lauren

“Dear Lauren

You would think I would start with drunk Lauren didn’t you? I prefer to call you a wine connaisseur – yes you can add that to your CV, you are welcome.

You are one of my favourite people on the planet and this letter is not only here to let you know of your awesomeness, but also to let the world see how much I value your friendship and how your existence has not only made life better, but also more complete.

Like with Amanda, I’ve been admiring you for quite some while now! I mean, look at you though, you are just goals in every way. To me your were kind of a big deal and I guess you are a big deal, because everything you do I try to look at and read. You are a true talent, never forget that my friend.
I’m not sure when we met – or as I like to put it, when you noticed me me haha. I guess you started to talk about how inspiring I was for talking out about mental health and I was completely baffled to be honest. An idol compliments my work, well that’s life made, innit?

You are an inspiration to me at so many different levels, you have no idea. You probably thinking how? Well everything you do, say or make a picture of inspires me so much. Everything you have achieved makes me so incredibly proud to call you a friend. There’s not a day that I’m not laughing about your funny tweets or being motivated by all your little adventures.

What I love about you is everything, obviously. But what I love about you so much is that you are a brilliant friend to everyone, there if people need cheering up. You are called the Sass Queen and that’s no word of a lie, you literally have me in stitches every day. I love our conversations about food and hangovers – although I don’t drink -, they are literally the best!

It’s great seeing other people appreciating and loving you as well, you are so loved. You are so inspiring and there’s not a day in this world that I don’t see people spread love to you and say how much you inspire, motivate and encourage them, you truly are a gem.

It might not seem like much, but adding me to that instagram pod actually means so much to me. You all are brilliant bloggers and people on instagram, I’m just a small drop in the ocean. But still everyone is so lovely and you enabled me to get to know new people and I’ve made new friends. Thank you so much for that, I can’t thank you enough.

You are one of the most kind people I have ever met, you have been there for me in my darkest days and never failed to support me. You spread so much love and getting instagram comments from you, literally make my life. Thank you ever so much for that. You are beautiful, pretty and hot. You are intelligent, supportive, funny, lovely, inspiring, creative and motivating.

I genuinely can say that you inspire so many people every day. One of the things I have learnt from you is to be more sassy and confident about myself or my appearance. I love myself more, I even wrote a blogpost about male body confidence. That all started with you, you giving me confidence and telling me how awesome I am. That means so much to me, you have no idea.

You have changed my life with your presence, you have shown me gratitude, love and appreciation. You are more than just a friend, you are a friend I will cherish forever and you are like family to me. It might be different to you, but you are so important to me. Life wouldn’t be the same without you anymore, and I really hope I can meet you one day. Because, you deserve the biggest of hugs. Also we will smash all the pizza and go on a wild night out.

Shine on you beautiful diamond <3

Your Dutch buddy,
