Erin believed she’d discovered the magic formula for finding her Prince Charming: trying out her favorite romantic comedies in real life. It turns out that she was wrong, at least until now, because–let’s not forget–a magic formula doesn’t always work the first time. She just has to wave her magic wand and start again.

Sleepless in Seattle, Romancing the Stone, Notting Hill, A Lot Like Love …, one of these films is bound to bring her happiness. Especially as this time, she's decided to put all the odds in her favor.
First session: The Devil Wears Prada. A change of style will help her find her smile again and take part in new adventures. Besides, aren’t all romantic comedies required to have a happy ending? Why not hers?


As I know that Matt is tired, I find an excuse to leave without having dessert. During the trip back, I can’t stop myself from mentioning, “For a second there, I thought you weren’t very talkative because you had a fight with Moira.”
“Or rather, you hoped that I had a fight with Moira.”
“What? Not at all,” I protest. “I have no problem with her.”
He turns and touches my nose. “No, it hasn’t grown, and to think that I counted on the story of Pinocchio being real.”
I can’t help but laugh. “OK, I can’t pretend that she holds a special place in my heart, but to be fair, I’ve only seen her once.”
“I imagine that she dethroned Vanessa on the list of your enemies,” he jokes.
“In my defense, she’s the one who started looking me up and down coldly.”
“While of course, you’re purely innocent.”
“Matt. I didn’t do anything to provoke her. Maybe you can explain to me why she doesn’t like me?”
“I’d rather not get into that kind of discussion.”


“Just My Luck, exchanging your life with someone,” continues Carrie.
“Mm, I like this idea. With whom? You maybe.”
“Do you really want to spend your days in a kitchen under incredible heat?”
“Not really. However, I could take the seat of a chairman.”
I give a side look to Matt who hastens to react, “Not in your wildest dreams. Your last visit to my office definitely wasn’t a bed of roses.”
“You’re exaggerating.”
“Of course I am,” he mocks.
“I assure you that you’d love working in the bookstore.”
“There’s no way you’re dragging me into this.”
Carrie keeps giving movie titles when Matt stops her. “Read the last one out again.”
“Romancing the Stone?”
“Exactly. One of my favorite movies.”
“Mine too!” we say in unison.
“You see?”
“See what? Do you want me to go to South America to get killed by criminals in the jungle?”
“Don’t get my hopes up.”
