14 Relatable Quotes from GIRLS that are #life in your 20s


We are hooked on HBO's show GIRLS. It's like a non-glamorous, totally relatable and down-to-earth take on Sex and The City (don't be confused we are still very loyal to SATC too!). There is something so 'real' about the show and the trials and fails of its characters. 

If, like us, you find yourself going 'RIIIIIGHT' or 'I totally get this' throughout the episodes, you will love these GIRLS quotes that are #liferightnow for any twenty-something.
