What are you all up to this weekend? My best friend is town so we'll be out and about which is so much fun! As much as I love going out, I also adore having low-key weekends at home with my favorite takeout food and the Netflix queue. There's a lot of good stuff on Netflix right now, so if you're looking for something to watch, here are a few suggestions!
My go-to show for a chill evening after work because it's literally the funniest show ever. Even if you've already seen in, go back and rewatch!
Chef's Table (Pastry)
The new season of Chef's Table is out and it is all about pastry! I'm really excited to see Christina Tosi's episode because I'm a huge Milk Bar fan.
This show is about a group of high schoolers in the 90s who set out to make their own film. It's very nostalgic and super funny which makes it a great weekend binge.
Hart of Dixie
This is a really lighthearted show about a Manhattan doctor who moves to a small Southern town and deals with all of its weird traditions and residents. Best enjoyed with sweet tea and a buttermilk biscuit.
Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee
I'm not even a huge comedy fan and I really enjoy this show because there is something very comforting about the coffee imagery. The basic premise is that Jerry Seinfeld picks up celebrities (usually comedians but sometimes others like Barack Obama) in a vintage car and they go for coffee. So far, my favorite episodes have been Obama, Trevor Noah, and Christoph Waltz.
The Mortified Guide
I love the Mortified podcast and the show is just as funny! Basically, people get on stage and read hilarious, embarrassing entries from their childhood diaries. The episodes usually revolve around a theme like Jonathan Taylor Thomas, fashion, crushes, and so on.
Bring It On
Who doesn't love this movie? If you grew up in the early 2000s like me, watching this will definitely bring back memories of sleepovers and performing cheer routines with your friends. That can't just be me!
This is a beautifully animated film based on the book of the same name. It's about a young girl living in Kabul who creates a plot to earn money after her father is unjustly arrested.
Franca: Chaos and Creation
This documentary about Franca Sozzani, the late editor-in-chief of Vogue Italia is perfect for anyone into fashion, especially fans of The September Issue and Mademoiselle C.
I love watching Sofia Coppola films when I want to have a girly weekend and this one in particular is the perfect choice. If you can, pick up some beautiful pastries from your bakery beforehand.
Joan Didion: The Center Will Not Hold
This is a very well-received documentary about Joan Didion's life, struggles, and career. She was truly fascinating and it's wonderful to see a biographical documentary about a subject that is still living.
Southside With You
If you're looking for a really well done romantic film, try this one which is about Barack and Michelle Obama's first date.
