5 THINGS YOU NEED TO WATCH ON NETFLIX

If you're an obsessive Netflix fan like myself, then you'll always be on the look out for new things to watch.
The trouble with Netflix is knowing what to watch when there is just SO much god-dammed choice.
It's impossible to choose.
So I've narrowed it down to my top 5 things I've been loving recently.
These choices are a variety of different genres, so there should be at least something here that one of you can enjoy.

TOP 5

1. Suits


This is a fantastic series about a young man who fakes his way into becoming a sort of apprentice-lawyer. He pretends he has gained a degree in Law from Harvard, however he has never even attended this school. It's all about the law firm and the people that work there. You grow to love and hate these characters as the journey continues. It's full of exciting cases and an intriguing story-line that will keep you hooked the whole way through. You also learn a LOT about the law system.
Give this a watch if you haven't already.


2. Making a Murderer



You've probably already heard of this series, as it has been spreading across the world like wild-fire. This is a series about the unfortunate events that occurred in Steven Avery's life, that ended up with him in prison for life. It is an extremely gripping documentary that will have you captivated after just one episode. Don't just dismiss it as something you wouldn't enjoy. Give it a try and I'm sure you'll be binge watching it and studying towards a degree in law in no-time. Seriously though, I can't describe this series within mere words, you have to experience it yourself.

3. The Vampire Diaries



I'm taking a slightly different direction with this one… slightly? Okay, okay I'm taking it in a COMPLETELY different direction. This is a programme based upon the books with multiple seasons so you can really stick with the story. It is based around a girl Elena Gilbert, who is the doppleganger of 'Catherine Pierce'. Catherine was the love of two Vampires lives 'Damon and Stefan'. In an attempt to find love again, the two handsome vampires target Elena to try and gain her love. They end up competing for her affection. It is a incredible adventure with Vampires, Werewolves and much, much more. Watch it if you think you might enjoy this.

4. Happy



This is a one off documentary programme looking at what it means to be 'happy'. This might seem like a silly programme BUT it really does make you appreciate what you have in life and can honestly change your mindset completely. I loved this programme because it made me realise what really mattered in life. It isn't the money, or the success- it's more the people you're around and the life you're living. Please, if you're ever feeling discouraged, watch this programme to remind you what really matters.

5. Spirit: Stallion of the Cimarron 



This is a cartoon. Please don't let this get in the way of what a fantastic film it is. Think about disney films- they are NOT just for children, there messages are so strong, they can relate to anyones problems/situations in life. This film is about a young stallion who leaves home to ward off some strange humans from getting too close to his pack of wild horses, he ends up getting captured and enduring pain by the humans, he ends up escaping, meeting indians and falling in love. It's such an inspirational film, with amazing hidden life lessons in between. It has FANTASTIC music in it, done by the incredible Hans Zimmer and Bryan Adams. Seriously, youtube the soundtrack and if that doesn't make you want to watch it then… GET OFF MY BLOG! Haha, kidding.

Okay guys, I hope these recommendations helped you. I'll see you next Monday for a new post!

Love,

AN IMPORTANT MESSAGE FOR EVERYONE TO REMEMBER





Hey guys,

This is a little post with a BIG meaning. I just want to spread the message of 'make time for those who matter most' what I mean by this is- the people that mean the most to you, e.g. family and friends should always be a constant part of your life. Sometimes, life can seem like it's getting in the way. You might be thinking a whirlwind of different thoughts and emotions all the time, like, 'What am I going to do with my life?' 'What if this job interview goes wrong?' 'I need to focus JUST on my career if I want to succeed!' It is COMPLETELY natural to feel this way, but you need to fit in time for the people that have helped and supported you the most.

Read below for WHY you should make the time for certain people!




First and foremost, you need to make time for family. This is a necessity in life. Do not take your family for granted, unless of course they've been unspeakably cruel towards you. It is normal for you and your family to fall out, however, never let this ruin your relationship. You may HATE your family at times or wish bad things upon them, but I am telling you now, you WILL regret it later on in life. So forgive, forget and move on. Trust me, you'll feel better for it in the long run. 





Friends, now this is VERY important. You need to always make time for friends, not the kind of 'friends' that you don't enjoy the company of and you feel awkward/ uncomfortable around. These people are not your friends. If you feel like you're around people that don't appreciate you or that don't push you towards achieving your dreams, you need to cut them out of your life and FIND NEW FRIENDS that make you feel like you can achieve anything you want. STAY in constant contact with these people and never let them go. Find friends that make you laugh SO much that you forget your own name. Laughter is the key to life, never forget this!





Lastly, PETS! Never forget that animals are JUST AS important as humans (and in some cases even more so). Don't forget to make time for your pets. Just remember that they completely reply on you to look after them, in which case you should go above and beyond. Yes, life can get busy sometimes (MOST times) but if you do have a lovely loyal little companion, be it a dog, cat, smaller or larger animal, always love them as you would a child! They love you unconditionally, as you should love them. Take them on walks as much as possible, treat them, cuddle them until they drift into a comforting slumber!




I really hope you enjoyed reading this everyone, if you did then be sure to leave a comment down below and share with your friends!!

See you next Monday!!!

3 FEBRUARY OUTFIT GO-TO'S

Hey Guys,

This is just a quick post to show you my top three February go-to outfit's for this month!



This first outfit is perfect for casual days out with friends or just hanging out at home! I love how easy, yet stylish this outfit looks. I love how each item of clothing compliments the other in a uniquely laid-back way.

Cardigan - www.newlook.com
Converse - www.cloggs.co.uk

This second outfit is such an easy go-to style if you're in a rush and still want to look decent. I feel like this outfit is so comfy as well, so you really can't go wrong. I always feel really cool wearing this because I feel like a character from a TV show hahaha, silly, I know!

Turtle neck top - Primark

This is the third and final outfit. I love how simple this look is. It's so so easy to create and also looks really cute. It's literally just a top, skirt, tights and shoes BUT there's something so elegant about wearing such an outfit. I think wearing the patterned skirt is a great combination with plain colours, it really makes the outfit POP.
