The Best Best Friends In America!

A big, huge, heartfelt thank you to everyone who submitted a story to The Giving Keys BFF Contest Giveaway! You all had me laughing and crying my way through the Ask Jules inbox. Out of the thousands of stories submitted, Isabel’s stood out to me most. The way Isabel describes her friendship with Sanaia is everything I believe true friendship is all about. Congrats, girls! I hope you love your BFF necklaces from The Giving Keys as much as my BFF and I do!

That day we watched fireworks together, and that’s when I realized: this girl is going to be my best friend. Continue Reading


Let’s All Celebrate Our Best Friends!

The peanut butter to my jelly. The icing on my cupcake. The bumble to my bee. These are just a few of the ways to describe the magic that is the relationships we have with our BFFs.

I am lucky to call a handful of friends my best friends — it’s not possible to choose just one! They’re all the absolute best. But, the BFF I’ve known the longest is my girl Maude.

Maude is a talented actress, incredible writer and unbelievable bestie. We met when we were ten years old. I’d just moved to London and it was my very first day of school. Her hair was cut asymmetrical, long on one side and short on the other. Even at ten, she was the coolest girl. When she introduced herself, I thought she said “Mord.” To this day I still call her Mord! Continue Reading
