Sometimes weekends (or weeknights for that matter) call for some serious down time. For some mad chills. What better way than a sneaky binge-watching session. My only problem is this leaves me not knowing what to pick because I’ve already seen the ones that jumped out.
Luckily being sick for what feels like forever, has let me take the time to sort through and find some truly awesome options. And seriously, how could I not share the love? So here are my top picks depending on what mood I’m in – because we all know that’s important!
