Liebster Award + Nominations

Hello to all my lovely followers, old and new! I’ve spent the last year finishing up college (officially a graduate, woo!) and working at my marketing internship. I’m so happy to be back on the blog and able to share things with you guys again. I really missed this community. A big thank you to Sarah from Lifewithlilred to nominating me for the Liebster award, it means so much! Go check out her blog and leave her some love.

  • Answer 11 questions from the blogger who nominated you.
  • Nominate 11 blogs.
  • Give them 11 questions to answer.

Q&A:

Shows I’ve Been Loving On Netflix

When the weather gets cooler, my TV watching rate hits an all-time high. Fall is the perfect time for binge watching seasons and seasons of shows. Grab some friends, throw a viewing party, watch solo or even Netflix and chill.

Here are some shows I love on Netflx:


Mad Men

MAD MEN

Despite years of hearing it nominated for awards at various award shows, I only got around to watching it earlier this year for the first time. No one I knew personally had watched it, but since I am VERY obsessed with the 1950’s and 1960’s I figured I just had to give it a go. I am currently 6 out of 7 seasons into it (so please don’t spoil anything if you’ve already finished) but already this is one of the most well-written, beautifully executed shows i’ve seen. For those of you who don’t know the plot, it’s about a 1960’s NYC advertising agency and all the people who work at it.. mainly focusing on Donald Draper (Jon Hamm). If you guys are looking for a show to fill your down time.. start watching this one immediately. You will be instantly in love with the girl power that Joan and Peggy rule the office with.

Seasons: 7 – Ended in 2014

My Rating✮✮✮✮✮


2. The Office (U.S)

I’ve been watching this show since it’s premier in 2005 and I can never.. ever.. get enough of it. There has never been a more perfect comedic treasure on television than The Office. The timing, the expressions, the characters: everything is perfect. If you have yet to watch an episode, drop whatever you’re doing and start with season one, episode one right away. Michael Scott (Steve Carell) is potentially the most quotable character in history and he will make you laugh so hard you cry. From his love of Chili’s Awesome Blossom to his constant “that’s what she said” jokes, he keeps you on the edge of your seat. The rest of the cast works flawlessly together to make you feel like you’re actually an employee of Dunder Mifflin.

Seasons: 9 – Ended in 2013

My Rating: ✮ 


3. American Horror Story

I don’t claim this to be an extraordinarily written show, but it’s really good if you’re looking for a decent story line and a little bit of a spooky/creepy vibe. The 5th season, American Horror Story: Hotel, just premiered last week and it was possibly one of the most gruesome yet. If you’re unfamiliar with the show.. each season is a whole new story: Murder House, Asylum, Coven and Freak Show. I still hold true to thinking that season 1 & 2 are the best yet, but with Lady Gaga taking the place of Jessica Lange this time around.. who knows what kind of surprises are in store. It’s the perfect time of year to binge watch this one.

Seasons: 5 – Currently Airing

My Rating: ✮ 1/2


4. Portlandia

This is one of those shows you have to be kind of smart and quick to catch the humor, otherwise you probably just think it’s stupid. It’s basically an exaggeration of all the Portand, Oregon stereotypes, portrayed by Fred Armisen and Carrie Brownstein. There’s a series of reoccurring characters that you grow to love. This is one of the few shows that can make me laugh out loud. It’s worth a binge watch.

Seasons: 5
