Flicks Chicks Dig
The Candy eds share their favorite chick flicks. How about you, what are yours?
| I'm a chick flick fiend and it's hard for me to narrow down my choices to just one. But I never tire of watching Two Weeks Notice and You've Got Mail. I always cry (as in tons of tears streaming down my face) at the end when the couples finally get together—especially when Tom Hanks's character and Brinkley the dog come into view at the park! —Mia, Editor in Chief |
|13 Going On 30, The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants, A Cinderella Story, and Mean Girls. I'm a chick-flick-holic. :D —Steph, Art Director|
|I have a lot! But if I were forced to choose, it would probably be a three-way tie between Some Kind of Wonderful (a John Hughes, ‘80s classic) She's the Man (I love Amanda Bynes to death!), and Never Been Kissed (my long-time favorite!). I loved how the stories were told and how all three Prince Charmings were so cute yet accessible. Plus, I love the kilig lines! —Mimi, Managing Editor|
|I'm not really a chick flick kind of person, BUT there is one movie that gets me every time—A Walk to Remember. Sigh. —Jennie, Beauty Editor |
|I love Legally Blonde! Reese Witherspoon as Elle Woods is soooo funny! —Angel, Assistant Features Editor|
|The Breakup. :) I love how it seems like your typical mindless comedy at first, but actually offers something way deeper. More than a year ago, a newly-singled me watched this and found myself in tears. A couple of months ago, a better, no-longer-hurting me watched it again and still cried buckets! Haha. This movie has definitely changed my perspective on heartbreak, relationships, knowing when to let go, and the "good" in goodbye. —Marla, Editorial Assistant |
|I'm not sure if it's considered a chick flick, but Only You is my all-time favorite movie. It's so old, I think some of you might not even know it. Haha! It's a movie about destiny. I love it so much that I watch whenever it gets shown on cable. I'm so happy my "mommy" in our Kris Kringle here in the office gave me a VCD copy of it. —Macy, Web and Mobile Producer |
| I'm a movie buff and I have a lot of faves. She's All That, My Bestfriend's Wedding, Notting Hill, You've Got Mail and the forever favorite, Serendipity. I just can't get enough of them. :D —Roch, Web and Mobile Producer |

There was this guy I dated for a while but things didn't turn out well. I was so into him that one night I can't stop thinking about him, I've decided to send his MOM a message on facebook confessing how much I like her son. I wish it ended there but no. I had to make it so emotional, lengthy and detailed like the drama queen I am. Luckily, it went to message request so I'm hoping she hasn't really read it yet. Up until this day it makes me cringe whenever I think about it but hey, whenever it pops in my mind I make myself laugh too so thank you self for being unbelievably shameless and brave when it comes to love. I may age faster because I have made a lot of cringe-worthy moments that I constantly make faces out of embarrassment just reflecting on my antics but I know I've made more hilarious memories than what ifs and somehow that makes the disappointments feel more like assurances that I have gave it my all and I have lived as honest (maybe a little to honest) as I could. #ItsOnlyNatural #CanBnatural
I've been investing in arts, photography, and writing. I've also got back to reading the other day and I finished reading this amazing book entitled 300 Things I Hope by Iain S. Thomas. It is all about the things the author hopes his readers to do in all aspects of life. So, I decided to make a version of it with all of the things I'm hoping for.
I hope I get to see my friends be successful in life. I hope to make a big mural someday. I hope to be a well-known artist like the artists I look up to. I hope to marry the person I am in love with today. I hope to be a little kinder to myself. I hope to see happiness even in the smallest things. I hope to travel the world. I hope to be a good mother and a wife to my future family. I hope to have my artworks displayed in a gallery or an exhibit. I hope to learn more about creative writing. I hope I won't learn how to get tired and give up my passion. I hope I won't get too hard on myself whenever I don't get the results I've been wanting to see in my works. I hope to love myself more even on the days I hate it the most. I hope to lead and empower women; to be their voice and for them to believe in themselves that they can be the woman they look up to. And when I've reached my limit of these things, I hope I won't get tired of reminding myself that my emotions don't make me weak, hence, makes me stronger. These are some of the things I always hope for. What about you? What are you hoping for?
I started fixing myself this quarantine. I mean, I started trying makeup products. As a teen, I'm on my phone almost every hour of the day, scroll on my social media accounts, especially Instagram, and also Pinterest where you get to see nice and pleasing photography by bunch of amazing and beautiful people from different parts of the world. So I started taking my own as well. I did not know that taking your own photo and try to get an Instagramable one is sooooooooo hard, it's exhausting. I do not have alot of space in my room, and I would definitely not do it outside our house because of Corona Virus, and I don't want to be seen by our neighbors HAHA so I have no choice but to make tiis inside my room.
Out of atleast 25 shots, only 2 are a nice picture. While I'm all sweaty and tired, I am proud of what I could do beyond my comfort zone. And this definitely built my self confidence, (and I secret love the compliments I received from both people I know and don't know) It's not my first time visiting in here, Candy! But I'm new to writing my thoughts and experiences, so bare with me HAHA.
Until next time!
