I started a new Netflix series this week called Ugly Delicious. Fair warning: watching this will make you extremely hungry so don’t watch while starving. I had gotten a heads up about this new series sometime last month and was looking forward to its debut. Chef David Chang highlights a different cuisine in each episode and goes in depth with guests and friends on where to find the best of the best and also the origin of how this specific cuisine came to be. The first episode highlighted pizza and I was all OVER that. Currently, as I’m typing we’re watching Tacos. I believe there’s going to be a future episode though that’s not going to make me too happy because of some of the reviews I’ve seen, but I guess more on that later when I get there.
Readers, have you started this series yet? Do you know which episode I’m talking about?

I watched the Zac Posen documentary “House of Z” on Netflix yesterday and this was the ending song. I’ve long looked up to Zac for his beautiful silhouettes, but never knew anything about this story. The documentary captured it well and I couldn’t get this song out of my head for the next hour.

Sally Draper has found her next role and it’s Sabrina in the Netflix reboot of Sabrina the Teenage Witch! She actually reminds me so much of Melissa Joan Hart and her sister Emily Hart so her filling the shoes of this role seems like a great fit. If you’re wondering if it will be anything like the one you used to watch on TGIF on ABC, don’t get your hopes up. Netflix’s Sabrina will actually portray a darker version so you can expect something along the lines of say… Riverdale.
We can’t wait to see what they do with this adaptation and we know Kiernan will be amazing.

We’re dipping back into a little bit of nostalgia this evening! I’m in love with Netflix bringing back The Magic School Bus. When I was a kid, this was one of my favorite programs and I hope it’s one that I can share with my own kids someday. How much more fun would school have been if we had all had a Ms. Frizzle?

48 posts and counting! I’m convinced that writer’s block is a thing that happens to everyone. I can still remember being in college and becoming upset at myself when I knew I had waited until the last minute to complete a paper. Typical. Writing always came easily when it wasn’t out of desperation and when it wasn’t at a time that I needed it the most. These “A Collection” posts are my favorite because they don’t ever require writing, but I like to write a little piece to go along with it anyways. It’s nice to just sift through a bunch of images and decide on the spot if I want to include them or not. I will usually know within a second and if I’m thinking about one for too long, that might also mean something too. I like to think that all of the images represent the mood that I’m in or a period in my life. I never actually write out the exact feeling at that moment and we’re completely okay with that. If you read into these a bit though, you can always sense a type of pattern.

Films about eating disorders will always make me a little bit uncomfortable. But at the end of the day, they are so important. It’s important for people to hear the stories, to know what it’s like, and what it feels like. I’ve been interested in these types of films lately because Lily Collins and Troian Bellisario are both staring in them and have both had eating disorders themselves so I know that the stories that they are portraying have a lot to do with their own experiences. I’m looking forward to seeing both their takes on it.

Anyone else feel like Netflix is completely dominating all of their TV time lately? With 13 Reasons Why, Masters of None, Terrace House, it’s hard for me to pull away! I’m loving the variety that they have in their series and the high quality production value of their series. Gypsy is very intriguing to me, but I also enjoy Naomi Watts as an actress.

There has been a little bit of controversy surrounding this show, but it honestly does. not. matter. I’m really excited to be checking this out. It is sometimes crazy to me to think about the evolution of Netflix and how they were just a DVD mailing service to streaming and now their own programming. Other series on my list include Terrace House and 13 Reasons Why. What about all of you? Any recommendations?
Also! Big ups to Allen Stone who is having his song featured in this trailer! YES!

JonBenet Ramsey and I were the same age so when the story broke out about her death, I was really too young to process it. To this day, even though there was sort of closure, there wasn’t really. People are still making documentaries about it and sharing their theories so naturally, this is one of those cases that I also never let go. I’m still very fascinated by all of it and often wonder what JonBenet’s life would have been like today had this not happened to her and why it seems like everyone close to her involved was let off the hook. This trailer was incredibly haunting to me, but still captivating enough that I might log into my Netflix account (which I do less than a handful of times a year) to watch this when it premiers on April 28th.
