Netflix Series You Must Watch

 During lockdown everyone binged Netflix, Disney+, Sky Movies, Amazon Prime, you name it! At this point, we don't even know what to watch any more! In this post, I have listed what I have watched on Netflix and hopefully, it will provide you with some inspiration. 

1. Jane The Virgin - ★★★★★

After some easy-watching? Jane the Virgin is one of my favourite Netflix shows, it is based in Miami and shows the daily lives of an unconventional Latin-American family. It features Anthony Mendez as the narrator, arguably, some say this is the best part.

2. Suits - ★★★★★

Classy. Sassy. Hilarious. Suits follows the lives of (mostly) glamourous lawyers at a high-paying American Law firm. It has become a comfort show. Brace yourself for the drama, because there sure is a lot of it!

3. Dynasty - ★★★★

Atlanta based, this modernised reboot of the 1980s American Soap will make you laugh. It follows the lives of the extremely wealthy Carrington Family,  particularly Fallon - a determined and highly successful female entrepreneur, and their family drama.

4. You - ★★★

I only gave this show 3 stars because I found it way too creepy and quite dark. It was weird though because some of it was actually very good. I am currently halfway through season 2 but gave up watching it.

5. Elite - ★★★★★

In an attempt to improve my Spanish, I watched this based on my teacher's recommendation. It was brilliant and it is not something that I would usually opt for. The show gave me a Hispanic Gossip Girl impression which is probably why I loved it. For the full experience, I highly recommend watching it in European Spanish.

6. Bodyguard - ★★★★

This 6 part BBC Drama presents the life of the Home Secretary position in the British Parliament and her protection officer. The show seems so real but is actually based on a fictional storyline. I would recommend it if you are into political dramas such as House of Cards.

7. Gossip Girl - ★★★★

Classic. If you haven't watched it, go watch it now (well, after reading this post). Set on the Upper East Side of New York City, from the high profile parties to the persistent feuds, this is a must-watch!


8. Gilmore Girls - ★★★★

The mother-daughter duo we all know and love! Gilmore Girls is a perfect and easy watch for those Autumn evenings by the fire with endless mugs of hot cocoa. It's quirkiness never fails to amuse me. 

9. Girlboss - ★★★★

Looking to motivate yourself? Watch this one season special of the true story of how the million-dollar fashion empire, Nasty Gal came about. The show really focuses on power and what you can achieve with self-belief and determination. 

10. Friends - ★★★★★

If you haven't watched this yet then, WHERE THE HELL HAVE YOU BEEN?! Friends is honestly the best. If I am having a bad or particularly stressful day (which let's be honest, we all have them from time to time), then whacking an episode (or 2, 3 or 4) of friends on is bound to make you feel happier and you will find yourself laughing along!

 12. Selling Sunset ★★★★★

Probably my quickest binge-watch ever! I LOVED IT! If you like house programmes and reality-tv then this is the show for you! It filled the KUWTK void between seasons for me. Also, It was crazy seeing 'professional' grown women behaving like schoolgirls.

Advice For New Year 11s

 It has been a funny year for us all. Exams were cancelled for the first time in over 60 years and it was a strange experience indeed. Here, I have a few tips that are specifically going to help the upcoming year 11s, although, I do think anyone can apply them.  I know that I would have loved to see a post like this, this time last year as it is worrying to think about! 1. Use Your Planner Whether it's an ordinary planner issued by your school or an academic diary it is really important that you use this. You will need it to write down dates for exams, deadlines for homework notes so you don't forget items. My planner was a huge help and I have no idea how I would have survived without it. They are issued for a reason so make sure you use them! 2. Keep Yourself Organised This kind of runs off from my previous point, but by simply ensuring that your folders are organised, you are saving yourself a lot of time. Maybe sit down every other week and organise any loose sheets so that

When Shadows Fall - Sita Brahmachari Blog Tour

 Welcome back! Today's blog post is an extra special one, dedicated to Sita Brahmachari's new book, 'When Shadows Fall'.  Aside, from its stunning cover, and the book focuses on the poignant tale of Kai, Orla, Zak and Omid, 4 friends who are in their youths. Sita takes you on a tale through their troublesome teenage years ending at the age of eighteen, post-A-Level Results Day.  The novel is illustrated beautifully by the talented Natalie Sirett , a great friend of Sita's.  The novel follows the lives of this friendship group, 13, 14, 15-year-olds with no place to go, who are outsiders from the rest of society. Sita's aim was to document the children she saw over a period of many years, being outsiders, having no place in the world. This is strongly seen through the character of Kai. Having become friends with Natalie over 25 years ago, when their children were young, this is Sita and Natalie's first book together. Sita described it as 'This book is the

Bi-DEN Trump

 This article is a little outdated but I thought I would post it to the blog this week as a different read, it is related to recent events in America. Enjoy! The article was written in November 2020, a week after a victory was declared for current US president Joe Biden. Image: Well, what an extraordinary year 2020 has been for many of us, impacting us in some way or shape, and for many defining our future! One of the biggest news stories alongside COVID-19 has been the political events that have happened in the US; for many the biggest election in the history of the United States. That’s right, earlier this month over 155 million people voted and used their political voice, the biggest voter turnout ever in the US. Not only this, but a fantastic historical achievement was made; Kamala Harris became the first elected female vice president - an achievement definitely worth celebrating from across the pond! With it being the most talked about and publicised election ever you
