5 Movies to Keep Your Heart Warm This Season

As winter is slowly approaching and the frosty mornings and hot beverages are upon us it’s only right to prepare what seasonal films we are going to watch to warm up those chilly nights.   Watching Christmas films with loved ones and a hot chocolate is the epitome of this time of year for me. Albeit, we do start celebrating rather prematurely as the Halloween decorations have barely made it down before the Christmas ones go up.   I was sat thinking about what films define the Christmas period and those that really warm up your heart and get you…

Classic Christmas Movies

Happy Holidays! The Christmas season is upon us and that means time spent with loved ones and friends. That also usually means frigid temperatures force us indoors.

So grab a bowl of popcorn, put on your ugly Christmas sweater, and settle in!   A Christmas Story   This is a holiday staple at my house.

The Most Wonderful Time of the Year

Guys! In two short days it will finally be December and do you know what December means? Christmas! I love the Holiday Season altogether (Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Year), but I have to be honest and say that the December holidays are my very favorite.   This time of year is the best because it’s usually when families come together to engage in fun holiday activities and to just be together for the sake of being together. All of the fun things that come with Christmas only happen once a year, so I always try to make the most…

Movies Welcoming the Core of Thanksgiving

Is there anything that makes you feel more warm and fuzzy than snuggling up with loved ones and watching movies during the Holiday Season? I can’t think of anything, honestly.   Thankfully, the holidays have been mostly good memories for me, leading me to look forward to them every year without fail. It goes without saying that Christmas tends to dominate the holiday movie market, but that doesn’t mean there aren’t a few good Thanksgiving movies out there!   A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving   I’m not sure how much more traditional American Thanksgiving we can get than this. Charlie Brown…

Fall in Love With This Fall Playlist

The Fall season is a very interesting time of year. My boyfriend and I were actually just discussing how Fall brings up this nostalgic attitude that’s a complete one-eighty from the party attitude many people have during the Summer.   Lately, I’ve found my mind going back to this time of year in years past and I can’t say that I mind it. It’s nice to slow down from a crazy summer and just chill to music that highlights the very best aspects of Fall.     Here are the tunes I’ve been jamming to so far this Fall:  …

All of those strangers coming to your door and demanding candy and social interaction...no thanks.   Luckily there’s still a way for you to be festive even if you don’t want to hand out candy or go to a party!

What I Sing on the Hard Days

Hard days come whether we’re ready for them or not. What’s worse, is there isn’t a tried and true way to make the hard days better. Everyone has  his or her own way of dealing with hard days.   For me, music has (and maybe it always will) made the difference. If I can get lost in the right song on the right day, it’s a game-changer. Feeling the music puts me at ease.   I know that when I was in the depths of my struggles with anxiety and depression, sometimes I just needed to feel it and let…
