It's been about two months of social distancing and honestly I cannot wait for it to be a thing of the past but while we are still here we might as well enjoy and make the most of it.
Now that the salon is open I get home around six pm, than it’s dinner, boys bath time, cartoons than finally they go for bed at 9pm. We tried for earlier but it’s a nightmare and their room gets demolished. It's both Iron Man and Thor’s energies trapped in two tiny bodies.
Once my family go to bed, I sometimes stay up a little longer to enjoy a few hours by myself. Netflix has been keeping me company with some golden oldies, romance and new releases.
There is always someone asking for recommendations on Netflix so here is mine... Please let me know yours so I can check them out too.
1) Self Made
Octivia Spencer is incredible in this movie. Follow the amazing story of Madam C.J. Walker as she takes you on a journey of self-discovery, strength, love and accomplishment to become African American self-made millionaire.
So inspiring, I really felt like I needed to invent something too.
2) Someone Great
The joys and heartaches of love. Jenny Young got dumped by her longtime boyfriend and now has to navigate her way through her feelings of loss, hurt and memories to find herself on the other side again. Heart warming and you will appreciate your friends afterwards as they do stick with you no matter what!
3) Love Wedding Repeat
Great humor, hubby actually watched this one with me. A few different versions of the same wedding as Jack tries to make sure his little sister has a beautiful wedding. Sometimes when we try the least the most happens. We loved it!!
4) Molly’s Game
Oh she is a bad ass, sophisticated and daring. There is nothing ordinary about Molly, you are either all in or out. Molly Bloom runs a high-stakes poker game for prominent stars and mafia. She finds herself in trouble after the FBI seek interest in her profile. She will keep you entertained!!!
We are going stir crazy after two months of social distancing, imagine being in isolation for 7 years. Joy got kidnapped as a teen and was held captive in a tiny shed. She and her son Jack had a nail-biting escape to gain their freedom. Honestly I was jumping up and down fighting with them. You will appreciate your freedom after this. Well worth a watch!
7) The Perfect Date
I am looking forward to a date with Mr Hamilton once we are allowed out. Lucky for him, he oonly needs to impress me unlike Brooks a high school student who created an app offering himself as a fake date to make money for college, but it gets complicated!
I am lucky my boys are still years away from leaving the nest. Three best friends felt forgotten on Mother's Day day so they took matters in their own hands to reconnect with their adult sons in New York City. With our mothers days coming up soon in May, this show will spark a little joy in your life too.
8) Nappily Ever After
How often do we really live authentically. With intention and mindful. When a perfectionist ad exec experiences a romantic setback, she embarks on a journey of self-discovery that begins with a dramatic hair makeover.
9) Irreplaceable You
Before you sit down to get comfortable get your box of tissues. I cried from pain, joy and all types of warm fuzzy feelings for this movie. I loved it. Gorgeous Abbie got diagnosed with cancer, this spurs her to look for a future girlfriend for her fiancee who is clueless when it comes go dating. This type of love is what we are all secretly thriving for!
10) Holiday in the Wild
When her husband abruptly ends their marriage, empty nester Kate embarks on a solo second honeymoon in Africa, finding purpose and love. This movie took me back to Botswana and free open space!
The list can go on and on but I'll leave you to check out these. Do let me know how you enjoyed them.
Yours in Love and Gratitude
