Getting over a Breakup & Breakup Essentials

Hello world, how’re you doing? I’ve been a little bit absent from my blog simply because I went through a break up a week ago. We ended on good terms and it was a long time coming. Getting over a breakup is hard, but regardless, my posts about long distance relationships still stand, the positives stand and everything in between. It wasn’t a bad relationship, but sometimes these things come to an end (urgh so adult). After nearly 3 years, mine did. With breakups, come break up essentials. These are my favourite movies, tv shows, hobbies to do at the moment. Naturally this is a bit more catered to me, myself and I – But hopefully, this is helpful to somebody.

Before you cry, ‘Ooh the misandry’ please, this is satirical. I don’t have this attitude to men.


  • Legally Blonde – Determined to be a lawyer Elle Woods defies everybody’s expectations and stereotypes of her blonde status.
  • Whip It – Very little love story with this one, all about women building each other up
  • 10 Things I hate about you – This is more for when you’re feeling sad and just want to watch something
  • Chicago – Women hating men.
  • Clueless – More shopping – less men.
  • Heathers – Dark comedy with Winona Ryder about a group of young women.
  • Out of Africa – Meryl Streep ruling sexist, racist White supremacy in Africa. What’s not to love? Hella long tho (3 hours).
  • Kill Bill – Self explanatory
  • Die Hard – Because nothing beats getting over a breakup than watching Hans Gruber fall off a cliff.

TV Shows

  • Always Sunny in Philadelphia – A program all about terrible people, which will make you feel better.
  • The Office (US/UK) – Either are acceptable.
  • How to Get Away With Murder – I’ve only just begun this, but absolutely love it!
  • Orphan Black – Strong female lead, anything but romance involved.
  • Buffy The Vampire Slayer – Erm, because why not?
  • Parks & Recreation – Leslie Knope is #friendgoals.

Other essentials

  • Video Games – Because nothing helps getting over a breakup like simulated violence. However, Sims-wise – I repeat do not make a couple version of you and your ex.
  • Yoga & Meditation – Yes, you can be that girl that does yoga and meditates every day.
  • A very large pizza on the day of the breakup.

Breakups are rubbish, but it gets better (I hope?!).

    Am Rose, I was very confuse when my husband that i married 11 years ago told me he needs a divorce simply because he fell in love with a lady she met in the bank, she took all her belongings and left my house even when i plead with him not to go but he insisted and left. It wasn’t easy at all for me because i was in pain and couldn’t go to work or even eat, i did many research on the internet when i came across some beautiful testimony people shared about Doctor Ekpiku so i quickly contacted him and told him my story, I never knew Doctor Ekpiku could be so nice, he told me that my husband will come back to me within 24 hours and every thing happened just as he said and then i concluded that i have found a God on Earth and i will continues to testify about him till Christ comes.u can contact him if u need any help: [] thank u so much dr,Ekpiku.
