A Little Romance

Now, I'm not celebrating Valentines day but it's quite nice to get in to the spirit of these things and embrace the hearts and flowers mentality. So today I am sharing some of my favourite romantic movies that I like to cosy up and escape with (don't judge me too harshly as I'm not claiming they are the best films in the world, but I like 'em!).

Of course the first one has to be the 1961 adaptation of Truman Capotes' 'Breakfast at Tiffany's', with the beautiful Audrey Hepburn playing party girl Holly Golightly alongside the oh so suave George Peppard - classic.

"I'm like cat here, a no-name slob. We belong to nobody, and nobody belongs to us. We don't even belong to each other."

Then we have the 1973 Sydney Pollack film 'The Way We Were' with Barbara Streisand and Robert Redford - makes me cry every single time (enough said).

"Your girl is lovely, Hubell."

On to a couple of RomComs that some may snigger at but I don't care, they make me feel good every time I see them. 'Whilst You Were Sleeping' with Sandra Bullock and Bill Pullman and 'Return to Me' with Minnie Driver and David Duchovny are sweet little love stories, but it is the supporting cast in both of these films that make them in my humble opinion.

Okay, so it's not a movie but the 90's series of Pride and Prejudice has to be on my list. The series that brought us the smouldering Mr Darcy in the form of Colin Firth, who let's face it will always be difficult to surpass. I have the DVD on standby for when I need an afternoon of Georgian sensibilities and chocolate treats.

So what are your favourite films to fall in love with? 

Ooooh are you having pancakes today? What flavours are you going for?


  1. Definitely having pancakes today (and possibly tomorrow as well). For dinner I will be making pancakes with a beef ragout filling. Then tomorrow it will be Delia's basic pancakes with sugar and lemon:


    As to films, I am not really into love films and rom coms so it is hard for me to choose. I do love The English Patient, book and film though.

    1. Yum, that sounds lovely! Savoury pancakes are so good.

      I haven't read or seen the English Patient, it must be added to my list of to do's :)

  2. I just love "While you were Sleeping". It's one of those movies that if it's on television I will watch it regardless of what part they are at. It is so funny and cute!

    I have never seen Breakfast at Tiffany's or The Way We Were...I have to change that!!

    Ergo - Blog

    1. They are love them or hate them types of film I think, but also classics so yeah I would recommend you see them :)
