THIS IS YOUR SIGN TO HAVE A CHICK FLICK MARATHON - Sivan

THIS IS YOUR SIGN To Have A Chick Flick Marathon

Now that my bedroom is out of commission, aka no TV in our bedroom, we are forced to watch TV in our living room. Not sure why this small change inspired me to watch chick flicks, but there’s something about getting cozy on the couch with a fuzzy blanket and candy and watching a light-hearted romantic comedy that just feels right. When we watch TV in bed I tend to zone out on my phone or read a book and then fall asleep, but being on the couch has me rewatching movies I actually want to pay attention to. ALSO, hate to say it, but the humor in these movies is unlike anything we will ever watch today. I think that’s why I gravitate towards movies from this time period and movies today just don’t do it for me. It makes me wonder how these movies are perceived by kids today though. Do they find them incredibly cheesy?

I also like this entire genre of movies that I call “Nancy Meyers” (incredibly famous director of movies like The Holiday, It’s Complicated, The Parent Trap & so many more), which is like MY goal for life all around. Her choice of locations, houses, wardrobe, style, and everything is just what I aspire to be like as an “older” woman.
