What We’re Watching on Netflix

I often get asked what’s on my streaming watch list, so I thought I’d write a series of posts for each streaming platform that I watch – starting of course, with everyone’s favourite, Netflix!

Besides discussing what’s just “dropped” I will also look at “golden oldies” such as Friends.  Can this series be considered that? I guess it can, since it celebrated it’s 25th anniversary in September 2019.

Please note that the below may contain spoilers!

First up – #BlackAF starring the creator, writer and executive producer of Black-ish, Grown-ish and Mixed-ish, Kenya Barris. By the way, Mixed-ish is my favourite of this trio, being mixed myself 🙂

The show is loosely based on his own family and life, in the sense that he plays himself, but apparently his character’s personality is the complete opposite of the real person. He has 6 kids (3 girls and 3 boys) with wife Joya (played by Rashida Jones) who is a former lawyer and never lets anyone forget that fact.

The 8 episodes cover their life and adventures as a family going through ups and downs, as only a wealthy Hollywood family can. The show is filmed “mocumentary” style and in reality format, where the characters do “diary sessions” (ala Keeping Up with the Kardashians and every other reality show). This is because the second eldest child, Drea, is using the show as her NYU Film School acceptance piece. The trailer showed the best and funniest bits, so I was expecting a lot, but at the end of the final episode, I kind of felt like I missed nothing. The only really memorable thing about the show is the opening sequence track by Jay Rock called “WIN” – which is now on my Deezer “Favourites” playlist.

That’s my 2 cents, but you can decide. Here’s the trailer:

Lovisa Loves

Lovisa pic

I was at Clearwater Mall recently, and happened upon the Lovisa sale that is currently on. They have an amazing deal whereby you can buy 3 necklaces for R100, so naturally I bought 6! The above pic is of 4 as I gave the other 2 away as gifts.

I love that the designs are dainty yet trendy. Just have a look at my Pinterest board called “Jewellery Wish List” to see that these Lovisa designs are bang on trend. There is also a similarity to Jennifer Meyer’s range (the likes of which can be seen on the necks of Jennifer Aniston and Courtney Cox). Read an earlier blog post about my love of Jennifer Meyer jewellery here.

There is one more month before spring, and I am excited to show off this range in weather that does not require thick scarves 24/7!

Happy shopping!

 

 

Jennifer Meyer Jewellery

I’ve always adored the gorgeous jewellery worn by Jennifer Aniston, in her movies and in person. I even created a wish list – that Gold Leaf necklace her character wore in “The Break Up” and the Wish Bone Necklace from “She’s just not that into you” – the list is endless.
