Breakfast at Tiffany’s is a cult classic and a perfect old romance movie to watch alone or with your friends. Holly Golightly, played by Audrey Hepburn, is a young socialite who falls in love with a man in her apartment building. The movie dives into the relationship between money and companionship, and who could miss Audrey Hepburn’s iconic wardrobe.

 

Valentine’s day isn’t my even close to being my favorite holiday, in fact I didn’t really celebrate it in the traditional way. The closest I’d get to a Valentine’s day mood was baking cookies with my friends and watching The Notebook or A Cinderella Story(one of my favorites). I usually prefer watching comedies and action movies over romantic ones, but Valentine’s is the one day of the year that I sit down and watch a Rom Com. If you love Valentine’s or not, it’s the perfect day to relax and treat yourself.
