My Netflix Binge List!

A Netflix binge list consists of all the TV shows that I watch. This means, anytime I'm on Netflix I'm most likely watching any of the following:

Marvel's Daredevil:

The first in a planned series of shows detailing the Marvel universe, "Daredevil" follows Matt Murdock, attorney by day and vigilante by night. Blinded in an accident as a child, Murdock uses his heightened senses as Daredevil, fighting crime on the streets of New York after the sun goes down. His efforts are not welcomed by powerful businessman Wilson Fisk -- aka Kingpin -- and others whose interests collide with those of Daredevil. Though Murdock's day job portrays a man who believes in the criminal justice system, his alter ego suggests otherwise, as he takes the law into his own hands to protect his Hell's Kitchen neighborhood and the surrounding communities.

House of Cards:

U.S. Rep. Francis Underwood of South Carolina starts out as a ruthless politician seeking revenge in this Netflix original production. Promised the post of Secretary of State in exchange for his support, his efforts help to ensure the election of Garrett Walker to the presidency. But Walker changes his mind before the inauguration, telling Underwood he's too valuable in Congress. Outwardly, Underwood accepts his marching orders, but secretly he and his wife, an environmental activist, make a pact to destroy Walker and his allies

Orange Is The New Black:

Piper Chapman is a public relations executive with a career and a fiance when her past suddenly catches up to her. In her mid-30s she is sentenced to spend time in a minimum-security women's prison in Connecticut for her association with a drug runner 10 years earlier. This Netflix original series is based on the book of the same title. Forced to trade power suits for prison orange, Chapman makes her way through the corrections system and adjusts to life behind bars, making friends with the many eccentric, unusual and unexpected people she meets.

Pretty Little Liars- Season 2 Round Up! (Spoliers)

I've just finished season 2, what an ending to the season. Who would of guessed Mona was part of Team A.


I was honestly so shocked when the Mona bomb shell was dropped, amazing writing again by the PLL team. The series is based on the book of the same name by Sara Shepard, let me know in the comments if you have read the book and if it matches the TV series.

5 Life Lessons from a Rubik's Cube!

Completing a Rubik's Cube is a huge achievement for anyone, being tactical and with a little bit of luck it won't take you long. Recently, I completed a Rubik's Cube after 7 hours, here is what I learnt.


1. Once you make a mistake there is no going back, accept and move forward.  I remember when I first started, I was slightly nervous to make any moves just incase I made a mistake when in actual fact, I didn't even know if the moves I thought were right were actually mistakes.

The Semicolon Project.

I know I am a bit late to this project, but I still think it is important to highlight tghe project for those who don't know about it or if you want to get involved.

The Semicolon Project offers support for those who are battling against self-harm for those supporting others who are struggling with self-harming, depression, bullying, suicidal thoughts and anxiety.


The semicolon itself, is a very clever symbol representing - where the sentence could have ended but didn't.

Everyday thousands of young people around the world, struggle with depression, anxiety, self harm and suicidal thoughts. So many have gone the extra mile and tattooed the symbol on themselves as a permanent reminded of what they have overcome.

Photography Inspiration

I have been inspired lately to take more photos, after downloading the free trial of Lightroom. Honestly, the quality of my photos has increased so much. I am no longer as worried now to take photos perfectly, as I know if I have any exposure problems I can adjust them in Lightroom.

I have been watching tutorials on YouTube, as I knew the basics but not an in depth knowledge. While watching videos I came across a photographer called Jessica Kobeissi. If I am honest her channel is not perfectly shot and edited but the content she creates really educational and has taught me different techniques and skills to use.

One of my favourite videos is the 50mm Natural Light and Golden Hour Photoshoot . She really captured some great photos even when her original location was shut.  To check out more of he work, visit her Instagram.

My other inspirations have come from Pintrest. This site is perfect for inspiration with categories and all types of photography. It's great for getting new poses and new lighting techniques. I also found articles with tips and tricks from other photographers.

There is always something to take a photo of, everything is constantly changing from weather to wildlife. Why not try going into your garden or local park and think about what you could take a photo of or different compositions you could try.

This statue in my garden  sits perfectly among the bright flowers adding composition with its dark grey tones.

If you have any pets they are great to photograph, sometimes they can be a little more challenging as they don't sit still, here is one I took of my dog Bentley.

Cute right! Fancy a challenge? Why not take a picture every day for the next week and post it in the comments. Its a challenge but it helps you think more about photographs,

Good luck, have fun

My Pretty Little Liars Obsession!

So recently I've gained a new addiction, Pretty Little Liars (PLL) . 

When I first started watching the program I really wasn't sure it was for me however, the story and the writing is so clever that I was hooked from the first couple of episodes. All the characters have their own problems and stories which are woven into one larger  story.

The episodes always end on a cliffhanger so basically I have to watch the next one which mean that I have to watch the next one after that and the next one and the next one , You get my point.

I'm probably really late to this fan group as there is six seasons out and I'm currently only halfway through season two so I know I have got a lot of episodes to go before I catch up with what is on TV.

The writers of this program are so clever, I've literally change my mind of who is A (which is the person who is blackmailing the girls) every single episode because of things they do, say or find out. So no spoilers in the comments haha. 

Spencer is my favourite character as she is more of a leader and is clever in the way she thinks of things.
 I really do like the other characters too they all bring something unique but my favourite is still Spencer.

The character I really don't like is Jenna Marshall. 


Not only is loving your step brother creepy her character as a whole gives me the creeps. I was convinced for a few episodes that she wasn't actually blind and that she was A and the being blind was a disguise but of course I know she is blind. Another one at the start was Toby her step brother but throughout season 1 into season 2 I've warmed to him as a character especially when finding out what Alison made him do. 

Let me know in the comments below who your favourite and most disliked characters are of the series.

June Favourites

In the month of June I've not really found many things new that I have enjoyed. Never the less here is my June Favourites. 

Favourite Blog:

My favourite blog this month has got to be Digital Photography School. This blog has really inspired me to think more about my photography. It has also given me tips and tricks for all things photography. 


Favourite Clothing:

This month I have only one clothing item that I have been loving. If you follow me on Instagram you know that I have been loving a hat. 

I got this hat from Primark when looking for some new shorts for the summer, love it haha.

Favourite Skincare:

I am still using my Lush Skincare Routine which is still working for me. My favourite of the routine is the Tea Tree Water which I recently purchased again.

I am convinced the reason my skin is looking so good lately is because of this toner. If your're looking for a new toner, give this one a try.

Favourite Music:

You know when  you've listened to a song too much that it's constantly stuck in your head, well this month the song has been Walk The Moon- Shut Up and Dance  . This is such a catchy song that is starting to annoy me because I've listened to it so much. 

The other song I've been loving is by Andy Grammer- Honey, I'm Good. This song has a country feel that you cannot help but dance too. If you haven't heard it definitely give it a listen. 

As I said just a short list this month but never the less these are my favourites, let me know some of your favourites in the comments below,
