Barack Obama is the United States of America’s 44th President. That’s a fact. And whilst we’re losing him from the White House, he’ll go down as the coolest President ever. And if you need reminding, we’ve got 10 times Obama proved he was the ultimate boss. You’re welcome.

The last couple of years has seen a huge rise in the feminist movement, with more women (and men) than ever breaking the mould, smashing the glass ceiling and slaying the crap out of everything they do. This definitive guide to some of the best Girl Power films and documentaries out there is guaranteed inspire the feminist goddess in you!
Not gonna lie, all this build up is getting a bit stressful now. From present shopping on a threadbare shoestring to the realisation you left it way too late to get your train ticket and could be going on a European mini break for the cost of your trip home, it’s been real, too real.
The end is in sight. With any luck you are just a couple of tear inducing last minute shopping trips and a few ‘well I really deserve this’ drinks away from the big day. Basically, your chance to CHILL is coming so hold on tight. Unless you agreed to host this year, then we’re praying for you, you brave unfortunate babes.
Of course the stress levels won’t just casually drop come December 25th, there will be hurt feelings, grateful feelings, loved up feelings, seriously pissed off and probably drunk feelings but to summarise…
Unless handled with caution, the aforementioned feels could result in a nausea inducing roller coaster of a day, so here’s how to boss it boohoo style…
You are in the OMG I can’t wait for Christmas camp OR the feeling fragile and antisocial from the night before crew, either way your mum/dog/kid sister ain’t gonna let you sleep so you may as well drag yourself out of bed and head downstairs.

You don’t like The Cat in the Hat?!

Yet, as much as we love a good old Christmas movie, you can’t deny they’ve given us just a few false expectations. From magical weather to making us think we’d find our very own Graham from The Holiday, here are some of the most unrealistic goals set by our fave festive films…
