It’s no secret that I love fall. I also love staying in doors and cuddling in bed, either alone or with a significant other, when the weather is less than desirable. That being said, despite the numerous TV shows, films, YouTube videos that I constantly plan on watching, there are a few movies I always seem to go back to for that, warm, cozy feeling we all want during the colder months.
MEAN GIRLS // It’s been 10 years and counting that I’ve been obsessed with this movie and I don’t think it’ll stop any time soon. I will usually have to watch this at least once around October (of course!) and then possibly a few more times throughout the winter. There’s not much else to say about the movie because I’m sure everyone and their mother has seen it, but if not I would highly recommend cancelling all/if any plans and just spending a night in with Tina Fey.
BRIDGET JONES’S DIARY // I had first watched the movie and couldn’t believe how much I related with a 32 year old woman when I was in my mid teens. To this day, the struggle still seems to be just as similar between the buxom blonde and I, maybe not in love, but perhaps in our careers, our self-esteem, our obnoxious yet loving friends.
SEX AND THE CITY: THE MOVIE // Having been an avid fan of the television series (binge watching all 6 seasons through an exam month) I couldn’t help but enjoy the movie just as much. Something about the transition from summer to winter in New York City during this movie is comforting and the ongoing love conflicts between Carrie and Big still keep me enthralled. Regardless what age or level sexual experience you’re at, Sex and the City is just as relatable almost 20 years later.
THE DEVIL WEARS PRADA // Meryl Streep looking gorgeous in grey hair and all black is enough to watch the movie on a yearly basis—the epitome of ‘aging gracefully’. Again, the seasonal transition in NYC gives me those warm and fuzzies, but also pairing it with the elusive world of big city fashion as me reaching for it every now and then when I don’t feel like browsing Netflix.
