Lately on Netflix #3

I used to watch a lot of drama series growing up. Now I am finding that I don’t have half as much time to watch the amount that I used to but I am cherishing it more. Both the time and content. Is this what getting older is about? 😅 (Today happens to be my birthday.) I try to watch dramas that have more substance to them – be it in storytelling or character development. Both? Even better. I suspect many internet users do this already but I have to research something before I begin watching (without the spoilers of course). There are a fair few where the trailer has peaked my interest, though I generally avoid longer trailers because they tend to spoil the whole story in 2 minutes. Here’s a list of my Netflix picks since my last update: Black Mirror (Season 5) I am actually very new to the whole Black Mirror world but I have heard many passing comments about its very nature so in some ways, I knew what I …

Lately on Netflix #2

It has gotten colder as of late and you know what? – I’m not even mad. I genuinely love the autumn/winter season. I love the cold breeze and how smooth my skin feels.

Or at least I don’t watch TV anymore. (Please comment regarding this – I’m actually interested to find who still watches TV because I really don’t nowadays.) I really enjoyed writing the last part so I thought I’d fill you in on what I’ve been watching lately…again. Here’s to #2! A Silent Voice Okay, let’s start off with the anime first! I would say that this year is all about going outside of…I guess not comfort-zone because I am generally open to trying out different genres but definitely stuff that I wouldn’t normally watch. One night I fancied watching a film and this one caught my eye on Netflix randomly and …

Lately on Netflix #1

For those who consistently blog whilst maintaining a 9-5 job – how do you do it? Admittedly, I have been particularly tired since entering the new season (although yay! for Autumn – my preferred season). I have been waking up around 6am and ugh – it is so dark. Luckily, I’ve booked some upcoming days off so I hope to relax my mind and catch up with more sleep as I’ve been surviving on 6 hours sleep mostly which in the summer is fine but rather wearing in the darker months. (I’ve decided that I’m never going to fix my late-night owl ways.) Anyways, I had some time to write and thought I’d kick things off by reviewing what I’ve been watching lately. I’m super late to the Netflix game – don’t ask how but let’s just say I’m glad to be on the bandwagon now. To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before I wanted to start with the most obvious one because I feel like lots of girls have been fan-girling over how cute …
