    I haven’t realized that it’s been so long since Sex and the City first aired. I watched sex and the city extremely late in my life. I’ve actually watched the show twice all the way through, and I absolutely loved it. I agree with you, while I wouldn’t want Big for myself, I didn’t mind Carrie ending up with him. I absolutely love your lil coffee talks. You always make me think about loads of things. Great post Laura xx

      I did the exact same! I watched it much later, and I’m currently re-watching all the episodes for a third time. People say that the show has aged badly, but I think a lot of the issues are still true today.
      Thank you girl! I’ll try including more coffee posts 🙂 xx

    I love this post! I am such a huge sex and the city fan so this was nice twist for the usual if we were having coffee posts! I would definitely want to have coffee with you haha (or a mango smoothie yes!) and talk about everything that happened in sex and the city and in our lives in general! I also every now and then do think about that what if carrie would have chosen Aidan, it would have been such a big plot twist loved this post!! xx

      I don’t think Carrie and Aiden would work, because it was always obvious that her feelings were stronger for Big. She went for a guy who has a lot of baggage, where as Aiden was ready right then and there to be with her.
      We would have to have both a mango smoothie and iced coffee each! I’ve been watching re-runs of the show lately, and it’s interesting how different I see it, now that I’m older. xx

    Ahhh great post! I know this is very unpopular opinion, but I didnt like Mr Big! I wanted Carrie to end up with Aidan. I know, its not what everyone wanted, and I do think that Carrie was too selfish for such a nice man as Aidan, but there you go! My most favourite thing to do is to sit at a table or out in the garden, chatting, talking, until late into the night. Id have that cold coffee with you and have a good ole chat lovely. Im sure we would cover many subjects xx

      The writer who wrote SATC, as well as the TV creator, both didn’t want Carrie to end up with Big. I don’t think she would have worked with Aiden – as you said he was too nice! They seemed too different, and she always seemed to prefer Big. I guess if it was true reality, another option would be the show finishing with her single.
      Thank you for reading Kerry! xxxx

    Love these kind of posts and after reading this, I really wish I could be there in person to have deep conversations with you since we have similar stories 🙂 Girl, you look gorgeous in your pics <3 🙂

      Thank you! I think we would have so much to talk about! I guess for now, we have our online coffee chats 😛 x

    Really enjoyed this post. I still feel so conflicted about Carrie and Mr Big because I really don’t know if I think it was the right ending for them. I love Carrie as a character but she is a bit problematic, think we could all relate to her struggles quite a lot with the idea of timing and trying to date the right guy. Really great post, gave me a lot to think about xx

    I especially loved this post of yours!!! You name 2 drinks I can love the most – and I love how you describe them ‘a ‘quickie’ boost or a slow make-out’ haha 🙂
    SATS was my most favorite show – I fantasized having female friendships of that kind and then the rest that you describe in your post regarding single women and relationships is absolutely how I used to analyze and enjoy trying to understand different perspectives. It was a perfect series for me, I don’t think I can make any judgments to make it different. It opened up perspectives is what I appreciate.

    • LauraJ says

      I still wish I had female friendships like that! I love the show as well. The characters are so different, and it really helped women break out from stereotypes.
      Thank you so much, as always, for reading! Your comments are forever appreciated 🙂

    As a SATC fan I LOVE this post! I loved Carrie (aside from the whole unrealistic NYC apartment) and I think she represented a lot of what women go through and that included falling in and out of love with the wrong man, and the representation that sometimes the timing is just off. Life can sometimes be a fairy tale. I have friends who have had fairy tale-esque relationships, and I have had friends whose relationships definitely are NOT fairy tale-esque. For myself I have had the fairy tale relationship without the happy ending because as Carrie and Big show, timing really does matter. It is so easy as an outsider to judge a relationship and to view someone as good or bad for a person, but feelings are fickle and you can’t help who you are drawn too. I think ultimately it comes down to not trying to change a person, but for that person to willingly change for you, and that depends on timing and most of all maturity. Thanks for another great thought provoking post beauty! <3

      Unrealistic NYC apartment and that shoe closet right!! I agree with you. I think that’s why so many women say they are Carrie, she represented all these different sides of women.
      Timing is crucial – I use to think that love alone was enough. I love how you put the entire ending of your comment!! How many times I wanted to change a person – and of course, I failed terribly!
      Thank you SO SO much for your words and for reading! In the words of Tina Turner, you’re simply the best! 🙂 x

I would love to read your thoughts!
