What better way to officially start this Christmas season than with the review of one of the products from a beauty advent calendar and of course a Christmas movie rec? For me there isn’t, for you maybe there is. Do let me know in a comment below!
Okay, so I will stop diverging from the subject as it seems that it has become a thing of mine these past couple of weeks and I will go straight to the topic – the movie recommendation.
The Sweetest Christmas was the first Christmas movie I watched this year and let me tell you guys, it was definitely the right choice. There are many new Christmas movies out this year and I will talk about some of them later, but this one was super cute and funny and it just made you want to join the Christmas festivities even more than before. It was a good movie, as good as a Hallmark film can be of course. Another reason why I liked it is because it was actually with one of my favourite actresses from Hallmark – Lacey Chabert – she is an absolute sweetheart. If you have been watching Lifetime or Hallmark movies you understand why the actors playing the main roles are more important than usual.
The movies itself was predictable, but still the plot was not overly ridiculous as it can often happen. Like I previously mentioned, it was cute and also in a way empowering for women. Kylie, a chef, played by Lacey, finally decides to go back to her dream and fight once again for what she always wanted rather than settle for what she had at the beginning of the movie and seeing that is incredibly important considering that this movies is a family suitable one. There might be elements that are a tad to perfect or idyllic, however it still shows girls that they need to be strong and fight for what they want as well as remind young women of the same things. Personally, I think this is the kind of movie I should have watched growing up.
As you probably noticed, I haven’t given you too many actual details about the movie and I will not do that as otherwise there would not be much left for you to actually see. It is not a super complex movie and you might find things to be a bit too much at times, but it is a nice way to spend a cold night at home wrapped up in you favourite blanket while sipping a cup of hot cocoa.
I definitely recommend you give The Sweetest Christmas a try this season.
