Movie Review: Angus, Thongs, & Perfect Snogging

Hey cupcakes, happy Wednesday! I know what you are all probably thinking; why is she writing a post about a movie that came out years ago?!?! Well, I am obviously at school and haven't been able to see any recent movies, BUT my friends and I have a weekly movie night to destress.... I mentioned how I had never seen this film, and they practically forced me to watch it because NETFLIX. So, I thought I would do a "throwback" movie review for you all today! ;)

Release date: 2008

Rating: PG - 13

First of all, can we talk about how the opening scene is literal gold?!?

I could not stop laughing when the main character, Georgia, dressed as an OLIVE for Halloween and then proceeded to run back home when everyone made fun of literally the most creative costume ever! Haha - it was a great way to start off the movie!!! :P

I personally think this movie was a very "real" chick flick. Georgia is honestly so relatable to anyone who had a rough time during puberty in middle school (which who hasn't!?). Most chick flicks focus on the typical "outsider" who is always drop dead gorgeous or smart or whatever (so clearly they are going to have a happy ending regardless!)...... In this movie, Georgia's life and romance was a roller coaster of emotions, comedy, and real-ness that made me fall in love with the film instantly. I think it is the perfect movie to show pre-teens and teenagers how imperfect all humans actually are! <3

If you haven't seen this really great Nickelodeon movie, I highly suggest it!!!!!! :D (Bonus: the male actors are pretty dang cute!)

The Inevitables of Long Distance Relationships

Hey cupcakes! As soon of you may know, my boyfriend and I are currently in a long distance relationship. Unfortunately we both go to different colleges, so we only get to see each other when I go home or he comes to visit. :( While I would never wish long distance on anyone, it has helped my boyfriend and I realize how much we love each other <3 I wanted to write a post about the things that WILL happen when you are in a long distance relationships.... They may be inevitable, but they aren't all bad!

1. You will miss them ALL THE TIME - This is kind of an obvious, but I miss my boyfriend so much. It will honestly feel like a part of your heart is missing, but it is only temporary right?

2. Whenever something happens (no matter how big or small), you will have the urge to tell them... But you might forget everything - I have a very odd sense of humor, so whenever I see something funny I always wish my boyfriend was with me to laugh about it... However, sometimes by the time I get to talk to him I forget about it :/ Couples who get to be with each other a lot sometimes forget how the little things are important to your relationship <3

3. You will get angry at cute couples - Maybe this is just me, but whenever I am missing my boyfriend, I get really jealous of other couples on campus.... :/

4. There will be a slight gap in your communication - This is especially true if you and your significant other are in different time zones! My boyfriend and I, thank god, are in the same time zone, but he is busy sometimes when I am not, etc. so there is often a gap in talking to each other. BUT, this can be worked out don't worry! <3

5. You will be tied to your phone more than most - Lol actually with so many people addicted to social media that might not be the case, but I tend to text or call my boyfriend more than most people just because we never see each other. However, I wouldn't be too obsessed with your phone/virtual love becuase you totally need to find the right mix between your social life when you are apart from your partner and then your relationship with him/her.

6. People will doubt you and your relationship - I feel like there are stigmas about long distance relationships and how they never work.... So there will always be people who think you are being silly and just need to break up, etc. However, that is your call! Some LDR will not work out, so if you are falling out of love then the best thing might be to break up.... But, don't let others decide what you want to do with your LDR; it is up to you to decide if it is going to work or not!!!!! :)

7. You are not alone! - I was actually really surprised on how many people in my dorm are in LDR. While some of them did break up with their significant other, there are others that are a great support network to talk about long distance <3 Plus, you can always talk to me about it if you need advice (or watch cute long distance videos on YouTube lol)!!!

How to Style Your Favorite Cardigan

Hey cupcakes! :) It is no surprise to many of you that I LOVE cardigans! I have over twenty of them in my closet right now, so I wanted to make a quick fashion collage inspiring you all with different ways to style your cardigans....

1. The oversized cardigan - I have been loving oversized cardigans recently, and they allow you to be comfortable while looking cute! Pair your oversized cardigan with your favorite tee, leggings, and Ugg boots :)

2. The casual cardigan - Most of the cardigans I own fall into this category. I love to wear them because they make you look like you tried a lot harder than you did! ;) Style this type with a nicer blouse, some jeans, and some cute boots!

3. The formal cardigan - A formal cardigan is great to have because it can take the place of a blazer. Wearing it with a blouse and pencil skirt will make you look so cute! <3

How do you style your cardigans? Comment below and don't forget to follow!

DIY: 4 Easy Room Decorations

Hey cupcakes! I haven't done a Do-it-Yourself post in quite some time, so I thought I would share some of my latest and greatest (easy) DIY room decor items. These vary in level of difficulty, but I think they are all pretty reasonable and don't take too much time. Let's get started! :)

1. Painted canvas - I have talked about canvas paintings multiple times on The Chic Cupcake (see the basic tutorial or the melted crayon canvas), and I still think they are amazing room decor items! These can be made from scratch (starting with a totally blank canvas), or you can totally buy canvases that just need to be painted! Perfect for a unique decor item!

2. Letters - At any craft store you can find wooden/canvas letters that can be decorated. I have collaged a few of them, painted some, etc. The ideas are endless! :D

3. Light switch covers - In a really simple way to decorate a room, unscrew the light switch covers and tape on washi tape, paint them, etc. So cute!

4. Photo line - If you want to add some pizazz to your room, hang some twine and/or Christmas lights and use clothespins to attach your fav photos!

5. BONUS: Clothespin Wreath - I wrote a post about this a while ago (read it HERE), and it is honestly my favorite room decor item! :D

6. EXTRA BONUS: Chia pet - Lol my parents bought me a Chia pet for Christmas, and it is actually a really great addition to my room (and planting seeds totally counts as a DIY right?!).
