It’s that time of the month again and all you want to do is cuddle your hot water bottle and wrap yourself up in your favourite blanket.

The Feel Good Movies
1. Mean Girls
This movie is a classic for a reason, there is never a dull moment and re-watching it gives you a chance to brush up your catch-phrases. You go Glenn Coco!
2. Dirty Dancing
Because nothing makes those cramps better than watching these two dance to the time of my life and you sing along.
3. When Harry Met Sally
Forget the fact that Imtiaz Ali butchered this movie with his horrible remake, the original still has a special place in our hearts.
4. The Breakfast Club
This one will take you back to the good ol’ high school days when there were no consequences to being an angsty teen.
5. School of Rock
A cool AF teacher who decides to form a rock band with his students? This film is the most woke one of our generation.
6. The Princess Diaries
Anne Hathaway transforms into a gorgeous princess and discovers that she is royalty. Still waiting for my throne to be honest.
7. The Devil Wears Prada
Miranda aka Meryl Streep was the boss we didn’t know we needed. As an adult, I’ve come to appreciate this movie, especially when Anne Hathaway chose her career over pleasing her man-child partner. And also the beautiful clothes.

Apart from the fact that it is just therapeutic to look at Audrey Hepburn, the film is a beautiful classic about falling in love and learning to get past heartbreak.

11. Bridget Jones’s Diary
Based on a best-selling book of the film, this series has three movies that follow Bridget Jones through her adventures. But the first is our favourite, because Hugh Grant, duh.
12. Little Women
This Oscar-nominated film based on the classic is a great way to get over your period blues. Since it’s still in the theatres, it gives you the perfect reason to step out and watch Timothée Chalamet on the big screen.
