Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life

Have you heard? The mini series Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life debuted on Netflix November 25th. I’ve never religiously watched the show, but I would catch on the a few episodes here and there. Netflix just revealed new data that proves TV shows, like Gilmore Girls, help moms and daughters build a stronger relationship. Since I do not have a girl yet, and my mother is far away, I invited my cousin ( total die hard fan) home so we can Netflix and chill this weekend. I am hoping she could explain parts I might have missed when the show was running. What are you up to ? Have you done any shopping on Black Friday?

To be honest with you, I’ve not had time to do a lot of reading the last few months. A lot of work to do and life also happened. I’ve decided at the end of last month to dedicate at least a few hours every Sunday to reading other blogs. Social media has taken away the Joy of sitting down with a cup of coffee to read your favorite blogs. Without further ado here are a few of the posts I’ve enjoyed reading this week. Read More »

Family halloween moviesGrowing up, I never celebrated Halloween. Not because I did not want to but because I grew up in a country that did not care so much about it. Now the kids and I all enjoy the Halloween spirit and all the fun activities that come with it.

There are hundred of options on Netflix you can watch on your time, and there are some pretty interesting choices for the whole family. Here’s a list of family halloween movies that our family’s been through. Hopefully, you’ll find some excellent options in there for you and your young ones:

Racism is everyone’s business

“No one is born hating another person because of the colour of his skin, or his background, or his religion. People must learn to hate, and if they can learn to hate, they can be taught to love, for love comes more naturally to the human heart than its opposite.” Nelson Mandela

Beat Bugs Now Streaming On Netflix + a Giveaway !

Beat Bugs

At home we love music, and have something playing in the background most of the time.

We like to reminisce about our younger days, you know those past perfect memories that always have a song associated to them and the song seemed to be just right for the moment, so much so that every time you hear the specific tune again, you can’t help but relieve the moment, think about your friends, before you know it a smile creeps up on your face and you’re singing… Read More »
