My Top Netflix/Hulu TV Show Picks

With the past two months being mostly spent at home, I’ve had much more time to explore new tv shows (usually more of a tv than movie person lol) as well as re watch some of my all time favorite shows. I’ve come up with a list of a variety of tv shows I have been binging or have loved for years. I have divided them up based off where you can stream these shows and the list ranges from suspenseful dramas to lighthearted comedy!

Netflix:

How to Get Away with Murder: Mystery/thriller about a group of law students and their criminal defense professor who become involved in twisted murder plots

Dead to Me: Dark comedy about a powerful friendship between two women as one tries to unravel the mystery of her husband’s death and secret life (Currently binge watching season 2 and it’s SO good!)

-You: Psychological thriller about a troubled man who goes to great lengths to stalk his love

Gilmore Girls: Drama series about a mother daughter duo as they navigate life together

Gossip Girl: Another drama about a group of elite high schoolers living in Manhattan and a lower class family in Brooklyn, dealing with scandal, love, and heartbreak

Parks and Rec: Comedy about co workers working together in the parks department of Pawnee, Indiana

Arrested Development: Comedy about a level-headed son taking over family affairs after his father is imprisoned. But the rest of his spoiled, dysfunctional family are making his job unbearable.

House of Cards: Political thriller about a ruthless politician’s manipulations inside DC as he works his way up

Scandal: Political drama about a crisis management fixer cleaning up messes in Washington while dealing with an affair with the president

Kim’s Convenience: Comedy about a Korean Canadian family running a convenience store in Toronto

The Crown: Historical drama that chronicles the life of Queen Elizabeth II from the 1940s to modern times

Hulu:

Euphoria: Drama series that follows the troubled life of 17-year-old Rue and the people surrounding her

Little Fires Everywhere: My most recent Hulu binge-watch! The drama explores the weight of secrets, the nature of art and identity, the ferocious pull of motherhood – and the danger in believing that following the rules can avert disaster, through the lives of the “picture perfect” Richardson family and the unconventional Warrens.

The Resident: Medical drama about a doctor who takes unconventional approaches to treating patients.

Grown ish: Spinoff of comedy Black ish, that explores the first trappings of adulthood that Zoey must navigate through going into college

Good Trouble: Spinoff of the drama The Fosters, that follows Callie and Mariana as they embark on the next adventure in their lives in Los Angeles.

The Bold Type: Drama series about the outrageous lives of three best friends who are working at the nation’s top women’s magazine

Homeland (Showtime): Spy thriller about a bipolar CIA operative becomes convinced a prisoner of war has been turned by al-Qaeda and is planning to carry out a terrorist attack on American soil.

Billions (Showtime): Drama about about power politics in the world of New York high finance.

Succession (HBO): Drama that tracks the lives of the Roy family as they contemplate their future once their aging father begins to step back from the media and entertainment conglomerate they control.

Veep (HBO): Satire comedy that follows the everyday life of Vice President, Selina Meyer and her team

Sex and the City (HBO): A sex columnist and her three friends explore Manhattan’s dating scene, chronicling the mating habits of single New Yorkers.

Let me know in the comments if you have seen any of these show, which shows are your favorite, and any other TV suggestions…I’m always looking to start a new show! xoxo

Cozy at Home Essentials for Quarantine

It’s been almost a month since I’ve started to quarantine and to practice social distancing and let me tell you I’m starting to go a little insane! During this time, I have tried to take back control of my life by cleaning my house, focusing on self care, and making use of my Netflix and Hulu subscriptions. I must say, my apartment has never been more clean (the bright side of all this is most of us will come out of this with clean places LOL) and it feels nice being in comfy lounge wear all day and doing more face masks. I wanted to make a list of cozy at home “essentials” to make this time go by a little more smoothly for you all, because if we’re going to be stuck inside for a while, why not make the time spent inside as comfortable as possible?!

First up, my Champion Powerblend Joggers are the most comfortable and softest pair of joggers I own! They are perfect for lounging around in around the house all day and let me just say, I have been wearing these nonstop since I got them in the mail! They are also super affordable and are offering a $10 discount right now.

I have also been loving my InnoGear Essential Oil Diffuser that has been great in helping to keep the house smelling fresh, calming me down, and cheering me up. Right now, my diffuser is under $30 and comes with 6 essential oils!

Next up are my HALLUCI Slippers which are super soft and comfortable. I wear them all day around the house and I never want to take them off!!

And I can’t forget about my Ekouaer Satin Pajama Set for sleeping (and working from home too ngl hehe!) and they also come in a long sleeve version!

Finally, my favorite item I recently purchased is my Rustic Floor Mirror that I use for my mirror pics on my Instagram. It is a game changer from my old, small mirror that was cracked. This mirror is SUPER wide and complements my room perfectly!

I’d love to hear what at home essentials you have been loving and how you have been spending your time at home! xoxo
