Long weekends and public holidays are the best for unwinding with quality binge-worthy TV shows!

Settling in with a cup of coffee, a snuggly blanket, and a good TV show is my way of switching off my brain from all the things us mums have to do for work and our families. This selection of 20 Netflix shows comes compliments of myself and my wonderful community and will be sure to get you through the long weekends and public holidays we have ahead of us (yay for holidays!). Enjoy.

Romance is a Bonus Book. Korean Drama. Slow pace but very calming, all the books, the energy of the publishing house. It’s a cute, feel good romance. No swearing, no violence

Russian Doll. Best writing I’ve seen in ages, great storyline that will keep you guessing until the end, and dark humour.
