The 24 Feel Good Girls Night Movies You Need To Watch

Feeling good is something I tell everyone to follow and allow without resistance. We all have the right to be loved and feel pleasure which reflects in the wold as a much better place. If feeling good to you is getting cosy with an abundance of cushions and blankets, a hot beverage and maybe a salty snack this blog is very much for you. 

Pin for later!

I don't know a single person who doesn't enjoy getting swept into a story that transports you into a different dimension (just as long as you're not running away but rather running to). 
For me a good movie calls me to come back again soon and will leave me gooey centered and giddy for the next few days. It will have elements of happiness and sometimes sadness, definitely humor and stupidity but most of all is grounded in genuine connections and relationships.

This is the list of movies that have begged me back to them for many reasons many times. Leave me a comment what your go-to feel good flicks are and why? I'm always curious to know what brings people back time and time again.

Now, let's get on with the list hey. In no particular order I present 24 feel good films for the next girls night I can guarantee you'll love:

Love, Delilah.

  1. And that's just the English language ones. There are so many great foreign language films that bring a sensibility that isn't found elsewhere. Three great French ones, to start:

    Amélie -- Audrey Tautou stars in this whimsical movie that tells the story of the shy, naïve Amélie Poulain, who determines to improve the lives of friends and strangers through secret and complicated acts of kindness. The movie includes, of course, Amélie’s experience of sweet and awkward first love, but its broad examination of ordinary, down-to-earth human relationships is unusually touching.

    The Girl on the Bridge -- Vanessa Paradis and Daniel Auteuil star in this lovely film about a girl named Adèle who intends to commit suicide by jumping off a bridge into the Seine River. Gabor, a circus knife thrower, intervenes and persuades her to join his knife-throwing act. Their work together is reflected in their romantic relationship: charming, daring, and full of unfulfilled erotic tension.

    Love Me If You Dare -- Marion Cotillard and Guillaume Canet in their breakthrough roles, a surreal story about the cruel innocence of childhood and beyond. Childhood friends take turns challenging each other with outrageous dares, and as they grow older and fall in love, they find themselves unable to leave old habits behind and put their happiness at risk for the sake of the game.

The Start Of The Rest Of My Life

Welcome to my first ever post on my new blog The Resplendent Lioness!I have been working on many aspects of this blog for over the past week but to finally sit down and write my first is a very lovely feeling.
Only just recently have I recognised that as long as I can write I am deeply satisfied. I still crave intensely many MANY wonders, writing just gives my experience a sense of purpose that other loves just don't. The best way I can describe it is as if  I am the whole universe, writing is the sun, and my many other joys are planets and stars. All are important and make up the whole universe, this is key. Stars and new planets can be discovered but there is only one sun.  The complete source of warmth, bringing light to every part of me.
My desires to venture into the blogging world have only come about recently and suddenly but I believe in divine timing and this could not have entered my life at a more excellent time. I asked for a summer romance and I got handed a blog. My oh…

18 Life Changing Lessons I Learnt In 2018

Here we are again, the end of a book and this time it so happens to be the novel that was 2018. A lot occurred in the past 12 chapters and 365 pages and for all I find peace with and am grateful.
Moments have been filled with pleasure, some with agony, some with sadness, elation, shock, glee, gloom, mild insanity, only to name a few otherwise we'll be here for the whole of 2019 if I try to list all the adjectives I've felt recently. I actually really enjoy watching the pendulum swing every which way asking you ever so politely with a kick up the butt to keep and never stop progressing. So to sum it up my year was filled with a lot of butt kicking.
I used to HATE the thought of new years eve and even birthdays so much that I'd get emotionally and physically distressed about them. It meant that the clock kept ticking and chapters kept ending, a concept my little eleven year old self didn't want to have to accept. Ever. It's only been this year that I've embraced th…

The 10 Albums That Transcended In 2018

Albums and EPs that I listened to non-stop in 2018 and you should listen to too!My favourite 10 releases in 2018 that features artists you will immediately fall in love with.

I spend a decent amount of my time admiring the artistic expression of music. It is something that I hold very close and very, very dear to my heart. Along with writing, music brings the most indescribable and monumental feelings of pure elation and raw electricity.
My favourite genre of music is the kind that leaves me feeling like I just saw through space and time in the matter of minutes and now I know every secret to the universe... so basically I'll go for anything that makes me feel like I'm high.

2018 was a year of some spectacular breakthroughs in music from new artists entering the scene or familiar faces re-inventing what they have to offer. Now, more then ever you're bound to find someone somewhere on the globe making something to cater to your very specific likes. I can't guarantee you…
