My Netflix Recommendations | Autumn 2016

When the rain starts drizzling and the skies are grey and bleak, there is nothing better than curling up under a blanket, lighting a scented candle and watching some really great Netflix. Back in February last year I did a post recommending some of my favourite shows however since then I've seen and adored a fair few more that I think the time is nigh for another post. (I won't be talking about the same shows even though I still love them so if you're interested in me waffling on about Gossip Girl, Pretty Little Liars or Shadowhunters, you can click here.) 

*Also quick disclaimer I know that burning a christmas candle in September may be seen as a tad premature but this is one of my all time favourite scents and I was just feeling the need for something cosy!*



I'm obsessed with this show! I haven't been watching it for that long as I'm only a few episodes into season 2 but I'm insanely addicted. If you're not aware, this show is a prequel to the horror movie Psycho that follows Norman Bates and his mum Norma who run a small motel business. You don't have to have seen the original film to watch the show (I haven't) and I don't think you really need to be a fan of horror either. 

The reason why I love this show so much is because of the storylines and the characters. The acting is phenomenal and the plot lines really push the show forward leaving you with so many unanswered questions that you just have to keep watching. It's set when Norman is around seventeen so it's got the stereotypical high school drama coupled with some much more sinister plots and to be honest it's just very good and you should really give it a go!

So far I believe there are four seasons, three of which are available to watch on Netflix so I'd highly recommend giving this one a shot if you're looking for something completely different to watch.

This one is a movie as opposed to a show and to be honest I can't remember exactly why I watched this. But it's so good, guys, its just so good. If you want a light hearted chick flick with comedy, romance and fantastic characters look no further because I think this movie is everything you need for a perfect girly night in. The story follows college student Naomi and her gay best friend Ely who have always lived opposite each other in the same apparently block in New York city. Together they formed a 'no kiss list' of people who essentially as the name indicates the other person is forbidden to kiss. This is supposed to ensure that there will be no drama in their friendship - or at least no drama from boys. However this doesn't exactly go to plan as something pretty big drives a wedge in their friendship (no spoilers guys!) and most of the film is them working out their place in each others lives.

I'm not gonna lie it's quite cheesy (especially at the beginning) but if you work through the cheese then it's just such a good, light hearted watch! Also it has Matthew Daddario in it, which is basically a winner any day isn't it?!

Oh god I hear you cry, someone else harping on about Stranger Things?! It can't be that good... Can it?! Well I'm here as your friendly Netflix addict to tell you it is in fact, that good. The show follows a group of kids (who are all just the most incredible actors seriously...) who's best friend mysteriously goes missing after a night playing Dungeons and Dragons. The most part of the series is them trying to find out what happened to him with the help of an intriguing girl called Eleven who appears to have magical powers. 

It's the perfect mix of horror (non one to watch at midnight if you're alone in the house!) comedy and just in general a great storyline. and since it's only eight episodes... I mean you could watch that in a day am I right?!

But, I am so glad I did because I thoroughly enjoyed the movie. I yet haven't watched Stranger Things because I am a little scared, not going to lie and Bates Motel is in my next-show-to-watch list for such a long time, I think it's time to finally watch it!
