10 Things I've Been Loving On Netflix Recently

22 September 2017

Hey Everyone! Happy Friday! It's almost the weekend. Yay! I hope you're had a lovely week. I am currently working but I'm on a shorter shift today. It's only 5 hours which isn't bad. The perks of overtime at my job means I can pick and choose how many hours I do and today I chose 5. I am off tomorrow thankfully so it's nice to finish early today and just come home to relax before knowing that I am back in a silly o clock on Sunday morning. Anyway, I'm rambling a bit too much so let's get back into the point of this post. Today I thought I would talk to you about my favorite things to watch on netflix. Netflix has pretty much become a part of my daily routine. I'm quite lucky in the sense that with my job I can just go to work and leave it all there. I don't really have to worry about doing anything when I come home so the time is pretty much free to spend doing any other important things or just chilling out and doing what I want. Perks of airport life. I watch a wide range of different things on Netflix some new, some old, so before I ramble on too much here is what I have been loving and watching non-stop recently.

With TV shows I am definitely the slowest person at getting things watched which you will see from my my selection here. However I am a very open minded person as you can see from the range of shows I have been watching recently. 

Suits is something I only started watching in the last couple of months and I really can't explain what took me so long to watch it. I absolutely love it. When I was younger I really wanted to be my lawyer and follow in my cousin's footsteps and watching suits just makes me regret not doing that. It's one of the shows that you'll put on to see what it's like an end up becoming hooked. That's definitely what happened with me. Only problem is you'd want Harvey Spector as your boss, Mike Ross' intelligence, Rachel's wardrobe/hair and Donna's sass. Oh and nothing will make you want to be a lawyer more. Trust me.

Gilmore Girls 
I couldn't write this post without including my favorite show of all time. The Gilmore Girls is a show I have loved for years now. At least 10 or 11. Yes it is that old. Last season aired in 2007. Not going to lie I was very disappointed by revival but the original show was incredible. It's about a mother and daughter and how they go about their daily lives. Not going to lie this show is definitely where I picked up my sarcastic habits. Oops. It's such a feel good, easy show to watch and one that I'd highly recommend watching.

Gossip Girl 
I was probably the last person on this planet to watch Gossip Girl but I absolutely love it. New York was always a place I wanted to go and this show definitely fuels my obsession even more. I managed to visit a few locations when I was in New York back in May and it's definitely a place I'm going to go back to later on this year or beginning of next year so I can explore it a bit more. It's definitely a show I'd recommend for those of you who love a bit of drama. This show has it all and I've still not finished watching the series yet. Thanks to spoilers I already know what happens at the end but I'm excited to get to that part.

Line Of Duty 
Someone at work recommended this show to me and I absolutely loved it. I wanted to get away from the usual rom-com series that I always watch and get into something a bit different. I wasn't expecting to like it but I absolutely love it and I'm pretty sure I watched the first 3 seasons in like a month. I've always been interested in the police force and different areas that the deal with so as gruesome as some of the storylines are it still fascinates me and it is definitely something I'd highly recommend if you're on the look out for something new.

So this is a show that I've noticed has been very hit and miss with some people and I've seen a few tweets recently from people asking whether or not they should watch it and my answer is a definite YES! I personally love it. One thing I've learned from Netflix is don't go by what other people say, always give something a go because you might end up loving it. Riverdale is definitely a show I'd recommend. This show is about a group of kids who try to work out the death of someone else's brother. It has all the usual romance, overbearing parents and relationship drama that you can think of. Think PLL with Gossip Girl. If you love both those shows then I reckon this will be right up your street. There's only one season at the moment with the new season scheduled to start in I believe October? Or November? I'm not sure but either way definitely get this watched before the new season starts. You don't want spoilers now!

When it comes to films I'm more of a classic rom-com kinda girl. However recently I've noticed a lot of my old favorite films have reappeared on netflix and I've been watching them recently instead of watching the new films that are out.

Never Been Kissed 
I absolutely adore this film and it definitely goes down as being one of my all time favorite films EVER. It's based on a girl who has like the title suggests has never been kissed, she's a journalist and is given the opportunity to go back to high school as an undercover journalist. I'm pretty useless at describing things but it stars Drew Barrymore who is one of my all time favorite actresses. I'd highly recommend watching this film.

Angus, Thongs and Perfect Snogging 
This was by far one of my favorite ever films when I was a teen and even though I'm now 26 it's definitely one of those films I turn to whenever I'm in need of a good giggle. It's something I've put on to watch over the last couple of weeks as it's just such a feel good film and just reminds me of how I felt when I was that age. We all wanted a Robbie didn't we? Definitely a film I'd recommend watching, especially if you're in a bit of a funk. Oh and fun fact...the actress who plays Jas is now one of the leads in Poldark...and she's bloody incredible! 

Kiss and Cry 
Kiss and Cry is a film I came across just over a week ago and definitely goes down as one of the most inspirational films I've ever watched. It's based on a true story and focuses on the short life of Carley Allison, a figure skater and singer diagnosed with cancer at the age of 17. Now as sad as it sounds this film will make you laugh out loud as well as cry. The actress who plays Carley in the film was actually Carley's best friend in real life which just makes it that much more special. It's definitely put my life into perspective and I'd highly recommend giving it a watch. It'll definitely make you think about how lucky you are. Just be sure to have the tissues handy! 

Bride and Prejudice 
Another one of my favorite films was recently added to netflix and it's something I had to include as I'm currently watching it as I write this post. Bride and Prejudice is basically the bollywood version of, yep, you guessed it, Pride and Prejudice. As much as I love the Kiera Knightly film I love this version more. It's just such a feel good film that's full of colour, laughter and love. It's based in India and America and if you haven't seen it before I'd highly recommend it. It's all in English so if bollywood films aren't your thing don't worry as you'll feel like you're watching an american film anyway. 

27 Dresses
I'm kinda cheating with this one as it isn't actually on Netflix but it popped up in my genius recommendations on my itunes and it was a film I downloaded one afternoon because I was looking for something simple to watch and I absolutely loved this film. It follows the story of a girl and her obsession with weddings and making other people feel special and loved on their special day when she's never really had a wedding of her own. If you couldn't tell already I'm pretty useless at describing films as I don't want to give too much away but 27 Dresses stars Katherine Heigl and James Marsden who are two actors I absolutely adore so I'd definitely recommend checking this film out if you haven't seen it already. 

So there we have it, just a few things that I have been loving on Netflix lately. If you haven't seen these films or tv shows before then it's something I'd definitely recommend checking out. If you have be sure to let me know in the comments what you think. Also let me know what you have been watching on Netflix lately. Are there any shows or films you think should be added to their collection? Take care and I'll speak to you in my next post. 

Hugs and Kisses
