11 Movies To Watch When You're In Need Of A Good Cry

11 Movies To Watch When You're In Need Of A Good Cry

Break out those tissues, you're going to need them.

Movies are pure magic, and the ones that get you attached to the characters and mess with your emotions tend to be my favorites. Some of the best movies ever made are the ones that make you cry and warm your heart at the same time.

There is something so therapeutic about letting out a good cry, especially when the movie has a happy ending. In need of some late night sobbing? These movies are sure to have your back.

1. "The Blind Side"

This heartfelt story of Michael Oher's journey from the streets of Tennessee to the NFL will be sure to make you sob. It is one of the most moving stories to ever be made into a film.

2. "The Last Song"

Watching Ronnie struggle with finding herself and fixing her relationship with her father may make your heart break, but seeing her find happiness and end up with Will will mend it back together.

3. "A Dog’s Purpose"

If you've ever lost a pet before, watching this movie is impossible without shedding a tear. It makes me happy to think that our dogs never truly die, but they continue to live on in other pups.

4. "The Notebook"

Because of Allie's dementia, Noah must constantly remind her of their love story, even on the days she doesn't recognize who he is. It is a beautiful story that proves the power of love can keep two souls connected forever.

5. "Toy Story 3"

These toys have been together forever, and when they accidentally hop on a conveyer belt that basically leads them to death, I nearly lost it. When Andy gives his toys away at the end, it feels like he's giving away a part of your childhood, too.

6. "The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants"

Despite the different journeys and issues they go through, these four friends are always there for each other. After going through the deaths of loved ones, family struggles, and heartbreak, it is proven that this friendship can withhold anything.

7. "Love, Simon"

Following the heartbreaking struggles of a closeted gay high-schooler will make you cry way more than you think. His family and friends' caring reactions will warm your heart and give you hope for a better future for the LGBTQ community.

8. "The Vow"

More memory loss in this one. A married couple gets into a terrible accident, and the wife completely forgets the life she's had with her husband. How can you not ugly cry when she comes back to him at the end? It proves that fate is real!

9. "Remember the Titans"

People of all different colors come together to create a dream team on the football field. Race should never be something that comes between two people, and this movie proves that time and time again.

10. "Dirty Dancing"

Watching a young girl find love and stand up to her father by doing what's right are the most moving parts of this movie. Nobody puts Baby in the corner.

11. "50 First Dates"

THE DAMN MEMORY LOSS. This time, the wife forgets her memory every day when she wakes up, and to help her through it, her husband shows her a videotape each morning that maps out the life she has. She even gets to re-meet her daughter every day.

19 Reasons French Bulldogs Are Scientifically Proven To Be The Best Kind Of Dogs

Because they are the best dogs.


Now I may be biased, but I believe that French Bulldogs are just simply the best.

Not only are they super cute but they definitely have a unique personality.

That being said, here are 19 things that every French Bulldog owner has experienced:

1. Having to explain to people that you have a pig as a pet that’s not really a pig


2. Having to explain to people that it is also a mouse


3. Having to explain to people that it is also a bat


Those ears are just too cute!

4.  Having to deal with the strange looks people give you when you say that


5. Having to clean your Frenchie’s wrinkles


Gotta keep 'em clean!

6. Struggling to choose just one outfit to buy them when you go to the store


7.  Trying to sleep but their snoring keeps you up


8. But then you get used to their snoring and miss it when you don’t hear it


9. Laughing at that little hop they do when they get excited


10. Laughing at their butt just wiggling when they get excited, since they don’t have a tail


11. Having everyone coo at your Frenchie when you walk it


12.  Having a need to buy another one


They are like potato chips, you cant just have just one.

13. Occasionally hearing a random snorting sound out of the blue


14. Being protective over your Frenchie


They would never bite up your shoe! How dare someone assume that. Some other dog probably did it.

15. Taking 1,000s of pictures and videos of your Frenchie and then sending them to people

Taking pictures

16. Missing your Frenchie when you go away on vacation

Miss dog

17. Having to turn back on a walk after 1 block  in the summer because they get hot easily


They are not lazy. They just can't go that far!

Instagram Skincare Influencer @sakura.skin Uncovers The Journey To Her Natural Glow In 10 Beauty Questions

Beauty tips and tricks from Instagram skincare guru and blogger Hannah, also known as @sakura.skin!


Ever since I entered high school and started puberty, I've been obsessed with all things skincare and acne. I've struggled with mild to moderate acne for several years, and about two years ago, I decided I was going to do something about it. I began researching ways to mitigate the number of active pimples, how to reduce scarring and how to get all-around dewy skin. I eventually stumbled across Instagram pages with genuine, tried-and-true advice with product reviews and recommendations. One of said pages was Hannah's account, @sakura.skin. I had been following her for awhile and bought a few products on her recommendation, so I knew I wanted to interview her and finally got the chance to!

1. How did you get started in the beauty community? What made you want to be a skincare influencer?

"I got started because I had been posting some routines on my personal Instagram, and I had friends always asking me about products and routines so I decided to make a separate account just for skincare stuff. I never set out to be an influencer (I don't think I am one at all!)"

2. What are your thoughts on influencer sponsorships and their relation to the potential honesty of reviews, especially when it pertains to skincare?

hannah sakura on Instagram: “Good morning 🍊 Starting the week off with a little update on this shelfie. Still messy but now somewhat organized? 🤔”

"I've personally never done a sponsored post or anything since I'm such a small skincare Instagram right now but when I receive a product from a brand for my honest review, I definitely do keep it honest. My following is small, but I know people take what I say pretty seriously so I would never lie about a product that actually broke me out or something. Having a following of any size comes with a responsibility, so it's definitely frustrating when someone's review isn't honest just so they can get some ad money or free products."

3. What advice would you give someone who is just starting out with skincare?

"My advice would be to start out small and in your budget. I'm a full time student, so I can't afford all these fancy new skincare brands. Start off slow and with what you know. Always test out products before you take the full plunge!"

4. Who has been your biggest influences in terms of which products you buy before you started your Instagram?

"I followed the Into the Gloss blog and that was the first skincare blog I followed that really taught me a lot. I didn't follow individual skincare bloggers until I started mine but the community I've made is honest, and I trust everyone's recommendations."

5. What 3 holy grail products would you recommend for people of your skin type?

"I have oily/combo/acne prone skin. I'm super hormonal so my skin breaks out a lot when I'm on my period. I'd recommend the Cerave gentle foaming cleanser, Cosrx snail mucin, and Saturday skin glacier water cream. All three have been amazing at balancing the oils on my face while not drying me out."

6. Are there any brands you’ve boycotted/simply stopped purchasing from? If so, why?

"No. I wouldn't stay I boycotted a brand, but one of my resolutions for 2019 is to stop buying from skincare companies that still test on animals."

7. How much do you trust customer reviews?

"It's pretty easy to tell when a consumer review is falsified, at least it is for me. So when I read reviews written on websites I typically take them with a grain of salt. There are reviews that are totally trustworthy, and it's easy to tell which ones are. I get most of my honest reviews for skincare from fellow bloggers."

8. Have you ever gotten a product based on the recommendation of other influencers? If so, which product and who?

"Yes! I've gotten most of my products based on recommendations of others. Most recently I bought my first Klairs product because so many followers and people I follow recommended the brand. I bought the midnight blue calming calming cream."

9. Has anyone ever reached out to you after buying a product you recommend? What was their reaction?

"Yes! I remember a lot of people reaching out about the Cosrx snail mucin, especially people I know in real life. Everyone raved over it! So I'm happy I was able to introduce a K-beauty must have to a few people."

10. Do you have a best and worst skincare tip?

"My best tip is to moisturize, moisturize, moisturize! My skin used to be super oily because I thought moisturizing it made it that way. Wrong! Oily skin needs all that moisture too! I moisturize all year long with moisturizers, toners, and serums. It's so important!

"My worst skincare tip would be to follow what everyone else is doing. Everyone's skincare journey is different. So if a product doesn't work for you, it's not the end of the world! It takes time. And I see so many skincare newbies get frustrated when a specific person's routine doesn't work for them. Know it's fine and totally normal and you'll find your own routine in no time."

A huge thank you to Hannah for letting me interview her! Find her at: her Instagram and her blog.
