The Holiday...

I'm sure if I asked you what your favorite Holiday movie was you could name at least 5 right off the top of your head. We all love a good Holiday movie. There is nothing like getting curled up with a hot cup of cocoa and bowl of popcorn with a Christmas movie on.

One of my favorite movies to watch is "The Holiday" starring Cameron Diaz, Jude Law, Kate Winslet, and Jack Black.
If you haven't seen it, don't fret about the date on this poster. This movie has been out for at least five years.

The movie is basically about two career women who house swap for Christmas Vacation.
One lives in Malibu, California.
and the other in Surrey, England (I hope that's right).
Now talk about a total chick movie! This one has all the bells and whistles. The first picture posted is of the Cottage in Surrey...sigh.
Here is a shot of the dreamy kitchen.
The tub...yes I know.
Aside from the way cute garments and witty banter, it's a love story times 2.
The reason this movie really got me was because it was an old fashioned story. There were no special effects, just a quality movie with good acting and an extraordinary plot. They need to make more of these types of movies in my opinion.
Like I said before...I love Cameron Diaz' wardrobe.
So if you find yourself with some spare time between shopping, cooking, and wrapping presents, I recommend you snuggle with a comfy throw and watch this movie. You'll be glad you did!


  1. Oh Natalie. I do love this movie! I've seen it at least 5x (maybe more) and cried each one. It's a special one for sure.
