Hi from quarantine friends! Anyone else going a little stir crazy and looking for new shows, new games and maybe a new pair of pajamas? Because I know I sure am! I saw a meme earlier today that read “I finished Netflix” and I felt that lol. I’m currently rewatching Heart of Dixie for a third time (best feel good show) and rewatching Vampire Diaries for the second time. If you need a new rec, see below for some of my all time favorites.
1. Heart of Dixie
The fact that I’ve seen this show three times over should be reason enough to watch it! City girl roughs it in a small town. Said girl has two very handsome men fighting over her while she figures out how to adjust to the small town life. Take my word on this one. It’s a very cute, feel good, chick flick show.
2. Schitt’s Creek
Want a good laugh? This is the show for you. It’s definitely stupid humor and takes a few episodes to get into but you’ll be thankful you stuck around because it’s funny as hell. A posh, rich family loses all of their money and is forced to move to a small town that they bought ages ago as it’s the only thing they still own. You’ll laugh your way through their misery of losing their claim to fame and adjusting to “normal life”.
3. In the Dark
Just a head sup, there is only one season so it will leave you wanting more! This show is about a blind girl (who is a total badass) who is on a mission to solve the murder of her best friend. There is a lot of drugs, sex, alcohol and badassery.
4. New Girl
Another feel good, full of laughs show! It’s about an unconventional roommate situation with 3 guys and 1 girl trying to figure out the single life and oddly enough become like family.
Honestly this one is a little creepy but also very intriguing especially with how much we share on social media. If you are a Penn Badgley fan, watch this!
6. Dead To Me
After a hit and run that killed her husband, Jen is on a mission to uncover the mystery. She befriends another women from her support group who helps her carry out her hunt. Their friendship has a few unexpected twists and turns and along the way their grief sparks a weird since of comic relief and joy.
7. Virgin River
This show seems to be a total spin off Heart of Dixie which is why it probably places on the favorite list. A nurse practitioner moves to a small town for a fresh start not knowing that she would find love in the process.
Watch as Maddie, a professional conartist, cons her way into several men’s lives, makes them fall in love with her and then robs them of everything. That is until those men figure it out, join forces and seek revenge.
Sex, drugs. alcohol and more sex. Despite a nonexistent mother and a drunk for a father, these 6 children take care of each other while trying to also figure out their way.
10. Vampire Diaries
After her parents are tragically killed in a car accident, Elena’s world will soon change forever as she is introduced to vampires and other super natural creatures. If you want a twisted but good love story, watch this one!
1. To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before
Teen drama alert but SO good that I’ve watched it upwards of 20 times. Take my word on this one and then watch the sequel too.
2. Kissing Booth
Another teen drama with romance. A high school student finds herself face-to-face with her long-term crush when she signs up to run a kissing booth at the spring carnival.
3. Love Rosie
The epic love story of two brits that have been best friends since birth. Can their friendship and possible romance survive an ocean between them?
4. Country Strong
Gwyneth Paltrow plays the role of a country music star who is trying to overcome addiction all while preparing to go on a comeback tour announcing.
5. Failure to Launch
Ok ok ok my movie type is teen dramas and rom-coms- sue me! I’ll stop with my top 5 because the other 5 would probably be more of the same. If you have a good recommendation, leave it in the comments please!
A great way to pass the time and maybe let your inner kid out is to get outside outside (safely away from everyone) for an at home workout, bike ride or yard game OR stay inside and try out a new game… or five. Some of my families favorites are Mexican Train, The Game of Things, Heads Up, and Qwixx.
If you haven’t invested in loungewear before now, I’d say it’s a pretty good time. Have a zoom conference call but don’t want to wear pajamas? Loungewear it is! The good thing about most of these sets are that they can be mix and matched. I love wearing my joggers with basic tees and my hoodies with denim shorts. See below for some of my favs!
