Seven things we can learn from Elle Woods

There are so many things that you learn from movies. I recently watched one of my favourites again. Legally blonde and as Elle goes through the world with pink sentence paper and a Harvard law degree I knew from the first time I saw it that this is a story you want to have.

Your dreams don’t need back-ups

This might be very scary for some people but I don’t do back-ups. Elle also doesn’t have it in the movies. I think having back-ups is good sometimes but I also feel that if you do not have back-ups you put your all and your hundred percent into the thing you want. Which can be the best thing.

Being unapologetically yourself

Elle is herself, she doesn’t care. She wears dresses and pink. She does what she likes and she doesn’t care what others think which I can’t help but admire.

Giving it something extra

Adding your flair is something Elle does frequently. You should be serious about your life and studies BUT you shouldn’t do what other people do. You should always be you.

Judging something won’t make you happy

Being mean to someone won’t bring you joy in life. This doesn’t mean you shouldn’t stand up for yourself because Elle does but she isn’t malicious or mean to anyone. Being mean to someone else won’t make you happy. You should always be kind.

Second chances

You should however give people second chances. Elle and Vivian became best friends after they had a rough start. You should always try to give people second chances.

Sister code is important

Be the friend you would wish you had.

A beauty with brains

You can be beautiful, you can make sure you look groomed and well while also being smart. You shouldn’t give up your brains because people don’t see you that way. Show them and always believe in yourself.


Lots of love, Melissa
