10 Ways To Leave [Love Notes For] Your Lover

10 Ways To Leave [Love Notes For] Your Lover

The Dictionary defines a love letter as:
1. a letter or note written by someone to his or her sweetheart or lover
2. (in Malaysia) a type of biscuit, made from eggs and rice flour and rolled into a cylinder

To be clear, we're not talking about Malaysian biscuits here.

Love letters are seemingly vintage now, but we think (like many style inspirations from the 60s and 70s) they are due for a comeback. Here are a few fun ways to get back on top of your Love Note game and knock the socks off your lover. 

On the bathroom mirror

There’s something so sexy about red lipstick. Use yours to write out a sultry little note on your bathroom mirror for your lover to find. It’ll get him excited and he’ll be picturing your lips!


On the shower door

When he hops in after a sweaty workout, or first thing in the morning... and he’s scrubbing away with soap in his eyes, draw out a heart shape for a quick “I LOVE YOU” message in the steamy door for him when he rinses off.


In the fridge magnets

It's called "Magnetic Poetry" and it's a kit with all kinds of words that you can slap up on your fridge and use to create hilarious, creative or even sexy messages you'll enjoy as you grab the cream for your coffee.


On the way out

Do you leave before him in the morning? Write out something sweet on a sticky note and post it on the inside of the door so he’ll catch it on his way out for the day. Does he leave before you? Write the note before bed. Voila!


In his pocket

Sneak a little something into his jeans or his jacket before he gets dressed for the day. When he's emptying them later to find receipts for his expenses, he'll love finding this in the mix. 


In his lunch kit

Does bae pack a lunch each day (cute), or do you pack a lunch for him (even cuter)? The sandwich will curb his hunger, but a little love note from you will curb his girlfriend cravings and get him through until the end of the day.


In the mail

Are you in a long distance relationship? Or do you travel a lot for work? Kick it old school and send snail mail. These days, mail is all bills and flyers (and no one likes those!), so throw a postcard or a love letter into the mix to surprise and delight him.


In an email

Okay okay, this may not seem that original. But in a world of non-stop text messaging, even an email will seem like a blast from the past--think late 90's.


On his pillow

Leave a "Good Morning" message on his pillow, so it’s the first thing he sees when he opens his eyes. Bonus points if your note says: “Meet me in the kitchen for breakfast, Handsome. I’m making your favourite”.


On your My Cinema Lightbox

It’s bold, it’s trendy and it’s changeable. Create messages for your lover using the different letter packs and display them in your home where everyone can see. Light up his day!

 

10 Quotes for Teachers to Inspire Kids

10 Quotes for Teachers to Inspire Kids

Back-to-school season is in full swing and let’s be real, we have to give it up for the teachers! Throughout the year, they spend at least six hours a day with our little monsters - teaching them everything from 2+2 to rights and wrongs. They work hard to encourage and stimulate excitement about learning, and with such young minds, it's a hard task to manage verbally - so why not have your My Cinema Lightbox do the talking?

Bring your lightbox into your classroom, put one of these quotes on it, and let the inspiration thrive amongst your students! (Tip: You might need the XL Cinema Lightbox for some of these thought-provoking quotes.)

  1. “Numbers rule the universe.” 
    We all know math can be tedious work, and it’s not exactly a favorite amongst children (or adults…). But the reality is, numbers DO rule the universe - remind your students of that!
  2. “Hakuna Matata” 
    Every child knows this phrase, and let’s be honest, school can be a stressful time in a child’s life. They need a pep talk every once in a while that they’ll get through the day!
    quotes for teachers to inspire kids
  3. “You were born to stand out.” - Dr. Seuss 
    Because the early years of life is a volatile time in determining what a child’s personality is.
  4. “Think think think.” - Winnie the Pooh 
    Pooh knew what he was talking about while looking for his honey; and it will definitely give your kids some motivation!
    quotes for teachers to inspire kids
  5. “Just keep swimming.”
    Spark a little encouragement in your students from a familiar cartoon character from Finding Nemo. Remind them that even though Dory is forgetful, she keeps on swimming through her struggles.
  6. “Everything stinks til it’s done." 
    It’s true! As a kid, the most tedious tasks feel like they’ll never end. Dr. Seuss knows.
  7. “Make ideas happen.” 
    Children need to be reminded that creativity is key, even if that means being wrong and making mistakes in the process. After all, that’s how we learn!
    quotes for teachers to inspire kids
  8. "Being kind is important."
    On top of educating children on becoming literate, teachers need to teach them how to behave towards others. Remind them that being kind to one another is important!
  9. “Oh the thinks you can think!” - Dr. Seuss 
    By the end of the day, kids are worn out. Remind them that there is no end to their thoughts, and that they’re able to do anything!
  10. “A day with you is my favorite.” - Winnie the Pooh 
    And last but not least, remind all of your kids that no matter how their day goes, you’re always happy to see them walking through the door every morning with wide eyes and a smile on their face.

The days of uninspired kids are gone! It’s time to foster creativity and motivation in the little ones (since they are the future).
