Love is in the air, there is an abundance of heart-shaped confectionery everywhere and the pressure for what to do on this day of romance is building. While I love all of the themed chocolate I can get my hands on and love romance in general, the overwhelming pressure to celebrate this day in a sweet, meaningful way can be a bit much. What happens if you can’t afford to go to an expensive restaurant? What do you do if you pulled out all the stops last year but now this year have no idea what to do? What if you’re single and don’t have a date for the night? What do you do if you honestly feel like spending the evening in your sweats and would rather not be seen in public, but don’t want to seem sad and lonely? Oh, this pressure! I don’t know how we cope with it year after year. Well if you want some ideas for fun ways to celebrate Valentine’s day, keep reading!
As soon as we flip the calendar page from January to February, one significant day of the new month comes to mind. Valentine’s day! The moment we shift into Feb, much like the seemingly overnight decorating for Christmas in November, everything is all red, pink hearts and candy. By the way, why are sweets and chocolate such a significant aspect of all holidays? Well, seeing as it is now officially February and I have yet to enter a store where I can escape hints of this lovey-dovey holiday, I thought why not embrace it? Anyone who knows me knows that I am a sucker for anything that falls into the romance genre, and this run-up to Valentine’s day is the best time to welcome said romance genre into our lives. That being said, what better way to get ready for love than by watching romance/rom-com movies? For all you opposed to these sappy, corny love stories, too bad! Love is in the air, Valentine’s Day is approaching which means that for now, if this isn’t your favourite holiday of the year, you may just have to suck it up and try to dull your anti-valentine’s day urges with vast amounts of chocolate (which is in bountiful supply at the moment). Now that that is done, here are ten romance films to get you ready and in the loving mood for Valentines Day!
We all lead busy lives – be it work or school we can all get swept up in getting things done that sometimes we just need to take some time to relax. One of the best ways to relax, at least in my opinion, is just to put on something comfy, grab some popcorn or a hot drink and watch a movie. Movies are a great way to relax because they allow you to be comfortable and not focus on anything work related – all you have to do is eat your snack and get swept away by the story on the screen. That being said, sometimes it can be tough to get to your movie night because you are stuck picking a movie. There are thousands of movies out there in different genres, and sometimes that magnitude of choice is just overwhelming. If you find that you aren’t feeling up to spending time searching your movie collection or pouring through streaming sites, here are some awesome movies that you can watch (so that you don’t have to waste your chill time finding a movie – you can just go right ahead and start)
