BLOGMAS DAY 6: TOP 5 NETFLIX PICKS THIS WINTER

UK Fashion Blogger

Probably the largest photo I've ever uploaded on here - I grabbed it off my instagram while I typed this because I suddenly realised I hadn't prepared a photo for this post. Sorry chaps.

Its the most wonderful time of the year, and as the festive season stretches ahead in front of us and the dark, cold nights draw in, its also the most wonderful time to binge watch your new favourite series on Netflix while snuggled under a blanket. Preferably with snacks.

I tend to struggle getting through long seasons as I don't always have much time to sit down and watch TV for an extended period of time, however I have managed to put together a few favourite series of mine in a list below in case you're struggling to find something new to watch this Christmas.


  1. Pretty Little Liars - I'm sure you've probably watched this already. I mean it seems like every man and his dog has and I'm incredibly late to the party but just in case you haven't, it's totally worth a watch. Following the story of a group of friends trying to solve the mystery of their friend's disappearance it's absolutely full of mystery and intrigue and can be a little bit spooky at times too. 
  2. Gotham - set in Gotham City, this series follows a young Bruce Wayne (before he becomes Batman) and his relationship with the policeman investigating the murder of his parents. As the investigation continues, the police encounter new villains and criminal gangs but are they linked to the Wayne murder?
  3. Dexter - ok so I don't want to spoil this too much but I will say that it's got the WORST ending out of every series I've ever watched but that doesn't stop it being totally worthwhile. It follows the life of Miami PD blood spatter analyst Dexter Morgan, who by day helps to solve gruesome murders around the city but by night he lives a very different kind of life. 
  4. Cowspiracy - not the most lighthearted choice but it's definitely an important watch. When people ask me why I'm vegetarian I tell them its because of health reasons which was indeed the main reason. However a few months in I happened to watch this and nor morally I really don't think I could ever eat meat again - whether you're considering vegetarianism or whether you're firmly a meat eater for life its worth watching in order to understand a little more about the implications eating meat, and in particular beef, has on the environment. 
  5. Gossip Girl - definitely my other favourite on the list, Gossip Girl follows a group of friends from one of Manhattan's elite private schools as they come of age. With plenty of romance, mystery and intrigue as well as a good old dose of blackmail (and some very enviable wardrobes) this is one of my all time favourite TV shows and I could watch it over and over again.

  1. Is it wrong I fancy Dexter a bit? I loved the series and I think I'm the only one that actually didn't mind the ending . . . . I've got the books too that I keep meaning to read!

    I loved Pretty little liars but then felt it all got a bit stupid and yeah I kinda lost interest after the 4th or 5th season can't remember which one ha!

    Gotham is freaking awesome, I love penguin. Might fancy him a bit too. This comment has just turned into me confessing my weird crushes, I'll shut up now ;)

  2. No I'm totally with you on that! There is something weirdly hot about him - you'll have to let me know if the books are any good cos I've been meaning to pick them up for the longest time!
    Hahaha I don't fancy Penguin but he's definitely one of my favourite characters - I was kinda routing for him the whole time but feeling guilty about it too <3

  4. Cowspiracy is amazing isn't it? A real eye opener.
    I couldn't get on board with Pretty Little Liars or Dexter. But I loved Gossip Girl and I've been hearing good things about Gotham so I'm about to give that a try!

  5. We literally watch all the same TV shows!! Gossip girl is ofcourse an all time fave (forever and ever bc of Chuck..)
    Cowspiracy is what gave me the final push to go Vegan after 21 years of being veggie - such an interesting watch.
    Im currently re-watching True Blood which is another fave - i feel like you'd enjoy it if you havent seen it already!! xx
