Cocktails with The Page Girls



April and Jasmine from
The Page Girls here. We're so pleased that Talk Supe gave us a spot today to chat with you a bit about one of our favorite topics: celebrating friendships–and how cocktails come into play.


Braine here... I've never been a big cocktail drinker, I do shots though, however I'm trying to be more of a lady so I thought this is PERFECT! Anyway, sorry to interrupt... go on...


April: When we first started The Page Girls and knew that we were going to be stressing girl talk, books and cocktails, I was so excited because to me, that’s like a perfect girls’ night in. I remembered all these Tuesday nights back in college when my roommates and I were like, “Well, we have a 8AM lecture tomorrow, but we have stories for each other and we need to unwind, so what do we do?” Three plastic cups. Bottle of wine. Boom – story time. I was twenty-one back then, so the lack of proper glassware was permissible.


Braine again... yeah, I feel ya. Tumblers, mason jars, as long as it can hold liquid it's fine. *starts eating peanuts*


Jasmine: Eventually we graduated from plastic to actual wine and margarita glasses. And our stories started to cover workplace romances and the perils of being thrown under very large buses. Though I still find myself drinking out of plastic cups sometimes. Shh, don't judge me...I don't like doing dishes. 

April: The glassware definitely grew with us as we went from college kids to women, but the girls’ night drinks always served as the jumping off point for pouring our hearts out.

Jasmine: And pour we did! It's so important to be able to be open with other women. I truly treasured the comfort and understanding that surrounded me in those moments. I don't have a sister, so for me it was wonderful to be part of a group, a sisterhood of women sharing their experiences, dreams, and fantasies. Girls' Nights are the best.


Interrupting y'all's chatter again. Yeah, just saw this awesome quote the other day on IG that said: ALCOHOL! Because no great story started with someone eating a salad! *crickets*


April: Definitely. The first time I realized my best friends were my best friends was when I had the most mortifying boy problem that I wasn’t sure I wanted to tell anyone (we won’t repeat it here). But I couldn’t keep it to myself so I spilled my guts to them, they laughed their faces off, then got down to business and helped me figure out what to do to fix everything. And since then, they’ve always been the girls whom I tell my more scandalous, juicy or shameful stories to. Besides The Page Girls. I can’t help but admit to things I normally wouldn’t admit to when I’m writing.

Jasmine: I love writing with The Page Girls. It's a place for women to come together and have meaningful and sometimes silly discussions. I think it's a nice mix of everything. We tell stories, our experiences, and gush about all the things that make our hearts blaze with passion. Sometimes it's books that we love or the fictional men that we fantasize about. Anything goes and our passions change. We just wanted to have a place were we can sort through it together.

April: It’s like girls’ night in with ladies from all over the world! I couldn't be more grateful.


Awesome! I need more girlfriends who can drink. My circle is filled with breastfeeding mommies... and I hate changing diapers!

  3. LOVE the new design! REALLY love the yellow a LOT!

    I had the Page Girls on yesterday, it seems like a fantastic site! I never really had a group of girl friends I guess. I was a one on one type of person and had a best friend but that's about it.
