What Does Loyalty Mean To You?

Loyalty is an admired virtue that we can seek from and provide to others. We can find it in so many places. Among our Nation, our family, partners and friends, even our pets. Why do we hold loyalty so close to our hearts?

“People tend to define loyalty by what it is not (for example: not being betrayed, cheated on, or abandoned), but loyalty is much more than the absence of mistreatment,” says Sabrina Romanoff, PsyD, a clinical psychologist and professor at Yeshiva University. Loyalty is faithfulness, dedication, honesty, trust, and support in a relationship, says Dr. Romanoff. It requires an emotional commitment and engenders a sense of identity”.

Loyalty is a wonderful gift. Finding that person who holds true belief in you. No matter whether they agree with your position or behaviour they can always be counted on to be there right by your side. It’s that friend you can be your true self with.

Hachiko: Waiting for a train

World-renowned symbol of canine loyalty, Hachiko the Japanese Akita met the evening train every day for nine years, nine months and fifteen days, patiently waiting for his owner who had passed away at work. (source)

With such a treasured gift it’s important to return Loyalty and not take it for granted.

Do you have a loyal friend? If you do then hold them close as they are a wonderful gift.

Our Top 5 Chick Flicks

For those that aren’t familiar with the term ‘chick flick’, this is a movie that appeals especially to us ladies. There is usually a love or romance theme and a female lead. How can you go wrong!?

We reached out to some of the ladies in our Sisterhood to find their favourite TOP 5 chick flicks for a night in with the gals…

It’s time to gather the girls for a movie marathon!

Here’s what our sisters had to say…

What is your TOP 5 CHICK FLICKS of all time? 



  1. Clueless – Love the fashion - the outfits are timeless! Seriously, after all these years, I still wish my closet was just like Cher's.

  2. Cruel Intentions – So many elements to this movie. I love the soundtrack and adore Reese Witherspoon in this. This takes me back to back to my teenage years, so many good memories.

  3. The Devil wears Prada – Meryl Streep is so fierce! Again, I love the fashion.. A great message - don’t sacrifice your life, sanity, morals and wellbeing for a job opportunity.

  4. 50 First Dates – Firstly, I adore Adam Sandler and Drew Barrymore so that’s a big win for me. Its just such a sweet film and very heart warming.

  5. How to lose a guy in ten days – ok, so there’s incredibly handsome Matthew McConaughey…but it’s also the perfect amount of romance and comedy.

Dirty Dancing - “Nobody puts baby in the corner”…love the storyline, love the soundtrack & love the ending…


  1. Dirty Dancing - “Nobody puts baby in the corner”…love the storyline, love the soundtrack & love the ending….

  2. The Notebook - No matter how many times I watch this, I still cry!! A love story for the ages.

  3. Pretty Woman - “Big Mistake. Big. Huge. I have to go Shopping Now.”…. revenge at its best …. this scene never dates!

  4. Ghost – Another tear jerker….and another Patrick Swayze movie 😉

  5. Breakfast at Tiffany’s – Old romantic Hollywood wrapped in 1960s glitz and glam.

Bridget Jones Diary - So many funny moments and Bridget’s character is just very relatable.


  1. Titanic - It’s poignant sad ending and being based on a true historical tragic event, I think it’s a must watch. I enjoyed the theatre of it, the soundtrack, the unlikely against the odds romance and grand era of the time. It is also an interesting view to the nature of human behaviour and classes of society.

  2. A Star is Born - Big fan of Lady Gaga, she is unique and has the most amazing vocals and Bradley Cooper is….easy on the eye.

  3. Bridget Jones Diary - So many funny moments and Bridget’s character is just very relatable.

  4. Bridesmaids - For a bit of a laugh and that dress fitting scene is hard to forget.

  5. The Vow - Inspired by true events and it features Rachael McAdams and Channing Tatum. Channing Tatum is well liked amongst my girlfriends (giving away my age too 😊) and it’s not necessarily because of he’s stellar acting skills.



  1. Notting Hill - "Chicks love grey, nice firm buttocks" It’s a classic!

  2. Pitch Perfect - Very funny and great for a sing along.

  3. Coyote Ugly - Such a feel-good movie of navigating love and life aspirations.

  4. The Ugly Truth - Heart-warming, feel good movie.

  5. The Other Woman - Very funny, very unrealistic but a great movie.
