Guest Post: In Need of Tiaras and Transformations? 5 Girly Movies to Get You through Even Your Worst Days

Hello wonderful friends! I am in sunny Florida for about a week so I am taking a little blog break. I have some wonderful guest posts scheduled for you! Enjoy. :)

You know those days when nothing seems to go right? And the only energy you have left at the end of the day will get you as far as flopping down on the couch and fighting off tears? Never fear, when the going gets tough, the tough get girly! Whenever you need a little extra pep in your step, take a cue from these down and out leading ladies who always manage to come out ahead.

1. Mean Girls

First off, Mean Girls is simply hilarious. Created by comedian Tina Fey, the brains behind 30 Rock and Sarah Palin’s failed attempts at seeing Russia across the ocean on SNL, this is a true comedy for those who love comedies. On top of that, Rachel McAdams is hilarious as Regina George, and this movie’s portrayal of “girl world” is so close to reality that it will have you laughing in no time. Watch as the lowly outcast becomes school’s most popular (and evil) mean girl, and you can’t help but sympathize.

2. The Little Mermaid
Anyone who says they don’t like The Little Mermaid is lying! If nothing else, watch it for the amazing music and have your own private sing along to boost your spirits immediately. The story itself, though, is a great one of wanting a different life than the one you were given, and the ramification of changing who you naturally are.

3. Legally Blonde
If you love the underdog, then there is no reason not to love Ms. Elle Woods of Legally Blonde. Witherspoon herself said she was drawn to the character because she was a woman who everyone underestimated that ended up saving the day, and herself. Little did the haters know, she just happens to be a brilliant law student and stunning in pink. We love you, Elle!

4. The Princess Diaries
Talk about a perfect (and perfectly hilarious) Cinderella story! Anne Hathaway is super adorable in this one, and can’t we all relate to her braces and frizzy hair? Watch her go from crazy awkward to crazy cool as she learns to be a princess and get through high school at the same time.

5. Never Been Kissed
For anyone who has ever loved a high school teacher, this one for you. Plus, Drew Barrymore is adorable and crazy funny (as usual) as the wayward and fashion-challenged journalist who, unable to get out of an undercover assignment, goes back to her worst days ever: high school. As hard as she tries, she can’t help but find herself right back where she was before. Until, that is, her real life brother decides to follow in her footsteps and pretend to be a high schooler as well. Always the popular funny guy, he quickly rises to the top of the social strata and helps his sister nail her assignment and become the most popular girl in school, to boot.
