WHAT TO WATCH ON NETFLIX AND DISNEY+

Sunday


Since I have mostly just been watching Netflix and Disney+ whilst social distancing, I thought what better time to post my recommendations of what to watch? I am a huge lover of Disney films so I would probably recommend watching all of the classics, but I will just try to pick out ones I have watched recently that are worth a watch.

Here is what I have been watching recently:

Disney+

Series

Disney's Fairytale Weddings - I have become so obsessed with this show! It's just so cute to see people get the Disney weddings that they have always wanted.

The Imagineering Story - Quite a lot of people who have Disney+ have been talking about this show so I decided to watch it and I love it. It shows you all about how they brought the Disney parks to life!

Films

Coco - This is a cute Pixar film, set in Mexico about a little boy who wants to become a musician. The colours in this film are so pretty and they have a lot of themes surrounding Dia de los Muertos.

Lady and the Tramp - This is the live action movie that came out last year. It was just so cute but I love anything with dogs so I may be biased.

Jack - This is an old film that I'm surprised I'd never seen before. The main character is Robin Williams so you know it's going to be good before you start watching it. He is supposed to be a 10 year old boy but he's in a 40 year olds body and tries to fit in at school.

Zootropolis - Another cute animated movie about a little rabbit who wants to become a police officer in the city of Zootropolis. Very much appreciate the scenery in this film too.

Princess and the Frog - A Disney Classic I can't believe I hadn't seen before. I think it might be one of my new favourites.

Pocahontas - Also can't believe I have only just watched this. Great story line.

10 Things I Hate About You - An old high school chick flick classic

There is still a lot I need to watch on Disney+, I haven't actually watched any other series on there yet. A lot of the stuff on there I have already seen but it would be interesting to watch more documentaries and other original series.

Series

RuPaul's Drag Race: Season 12 - I love all of RuPaul's Drag Race, season 12 is the current season that is going on now. New episodes come out every Saturday.

Pandemic - This is a short series and is an interesting watch if you want to learn more about viruses and how they spread to become pandemics. It may scare some people due to the current situation but I just find it really interesting, don't know why.

The Stranger - This is a very weird series based on a book by Harlan Coben. Definitely worth a watch.

AJ and the Queen - Wholesome show starring RuPaul!

Fresh Meat - This is a good one to watch if you are missing uni, I know I am!

Bodyguard - This is a British drama that will keep you on the edge of your seat at all times.

Too hot to handle - This is a cringe Love Island-style show but it is so gripping and binge worthy. It's only 8 episodes too so I watched it in 2 days. Oops!

Self Made - This one is a story based on the life of Madam C.J. Walker. It's only 4 episodes and definitely worth a watch.

Films

Gone Girl - I watched this for the first time the other day and I got really into it. Lots of twists in the story.

Dumplin' - This is one of my favourite films on Netflix. It's about a girl who's mum is a beauty pageant leader (Jennifer Aniston) and she joins the pageant as a joke at first. It also has a Dolly Parton soundtrack. Love love love.

The Pianist - This is based on the true story of a Jewish pianist fighting for survival in World War II Poland. I am really interested in World War II and the holocaust just because I can't believe it happened because it's so horrible. This film is pretty hard to watch as it depicts some of the awful things that happened to Jews at that time but it's definitely worth watching.

Shutter Island - This is a classic film starring Leonardo DiCaprio.

Eat Pray Love - A feel good Julia Roberts chick flick about self love and self care.

A Fall from Grace - This is about the trial of a woman who confesses to killing her husband. The whole film is about finding out what happened and there is a twist at the end.

Another show I have to mention that isn't on Netflix or Disney+ but it is one of my favourites of all time. It's Gordon, Gino and Fred's American Road Trip. I would encourage everyone to watch this the 3 of them are just so funny and go so well together. It's on ITV at 9pm on Thursdays at the moment and you can find it on ITV hub as well.

This blog post was inspired by Becca's Small World's YouTube video 20 TV shows you need to watch on Netflix, Amazon and Disney+.

WHAT I'VE BEEN DOING DURING LOCKDOWN

Wednesday

Like many other countries across the world, the UK has gone into lockdown due to the coronavirus and we have been told we shouldn't go out unless completely necessary.

Whilst staying indoors, I have been keeping track of all the things I have been up to beside working from home, so I can share it with you.

Disney+ and Netflix

A couple of weeks ago, Disney+ came out in the UK, so I decided to pre-order it so that I could watch it in isolation. I have to say, I have not been disappointed! I must have watched something from Disney+ every day since having it, as well as watching Netflix as usual.

Paint by numbers

Knowing I wouldn't be able to go anywhere for a while, I ordered myself a paint by numbers kit on Amazon. I have been working on this for a few weeks now and I have found it very therapeutic.

Home work outs

I have also being doing some exercise at home with my friends on facetime. I did try a yoga with Adriene video but I am completely useless at yoga. I am pleased I tried though.

What else?

In addition to keeping myself occupied, I am also trying to tick things off of my ongoing self admin to-do list. I got my Google Analytics for Beginners certificate. I have also been clearing out some make-up and have cleaned my make-up brushes which was long overdue.

There is a lot more I hope to complete before lockdown is over. I would like to write more blog posts for you and would also like to update my CV with all of my new internship information.

How do I stay positive?

In times like these, it can be hard to stay positive. The way I try and look at it is, every day is a day closer to being back to normal. There will be an end to this and even though it is hard to plan things at the moment, when this is all over you will be more grateful for everything that you do.
