I love a cosy at home weekend in general but with the new regulations and curfews across the UK, I imagine so many of us will be at home for most of this season. I have watched so many 90s films recently, ones that I rewatch every year during October & November, so I wanted to share them with you, incase you needed some inspiration of what to watch this weekend.
1.You’ve got Mail
A classic that I actually watch all year round but it has so many perfect ‘New York in the Fall’ scenes. A feel good that makes you want to go to NYC in October, visit bookstores and drink coffee in cute cafes. I love everything about this film, but who doesn’t love a Tom Hanks, Meg Ryan duo.
2. Practical Magic
I watched this for the first time ever a few weeks back and I loved it. It was great for some kooky halloween vibes & feel good dancing around the kitchen making Midnight Margaritas Harry Nilsson’s Coconut.
Another classic that I have been watching since I was young. Set again in that picturesque New York Fall and Winter, it is cosy & heartwarming but will probably have you in tears. The dancing in the bedroom to Ain’t no Mountain High Enough is one of my favourite scenes.
4. When Harry Met Sally
A classic Rom-Com, and of course set in Autumn in New York, I think there is a maybe theme here with my favourites. Between their chemistry and the Central Park fall foliage, it is a cosy at home must watch!
5. Mystic Pizza
I actually watched this in Summer for the first time after seeing it pop up on Netflix and knew I would rewatch soon. Cosy & fun, set in Conneticut in the late 80s where the Autumn leaves are falling and they are all in chunky knits & chic camel coats.
6. Scent of a Woman
I watched Scent of a Woman only last weekend and it inspired me to write this post. I cannot believe I haven’t seen this before. Al Pacino & Chris O’Donnell in New York over Thanksgiving having wild adventures & my favourite part of it – all that 90s Autumn Winter fashion – tailored suits & big coats was inspiring alone!
