Blogmas – New Series Review – Emily in Paris

Netflix has given us a new, easy going, 10 episode girly series to throw yourself into over the Christmas season.
From the creator Darren Star, who gifted us Sex and the City, all sounds promising doesn’t it?

The series is set in Paris, and a scene doesn’t go by where they don’t remind you.

Croissants, cigarettes, rude locals, wine at every meal, this series just screams ‘cliche’

It’s disappointing that you aren’t shown a great deal of the sites, culture or beauty of the city, only what you would find on a postcard.

There are likeable characters, but I have to say, Emily is not one of them. I found her arrogant and a bit dull, with quick thinking answers to her problems, she is happy go lucky but all is very predictable.

It wasn’t the funny, romantic or charming series I was hoping for, and was dragged over 10 episodes when it could of been shown in 5.

Lastly, the fashion.
I really thought they would pull it out the bag, leaving me with visions of iconic looks, ones that I may like to recreate and put my own spin on. Accessories that I’d be googling whilst watching each episode, and shoes to add on my Christmas list.
None of the above.

I spoke to a friend about the series and she loved it, so each to their own.

If you give the series a watch, let me know what you made of it?

My 30th Birthday

Good Afternoon Friends!

Yesterday something exciting happened, it was my 30th Birthday!It wasnt the day that had been planned originally, but it was still wonderful all the same.I woke up with birds singing, the sun shining, and messages from loved ones.

My boyfriend was preparing breakfast, so I decided to do my morning yoga routine and have a shower. There is nothing more refreshing!

My boyfriend’s so thoughtful, I came into the living room to find bacon and cream cheese bagels and bubbly, with The Sex and The City movie ready to play in the background.

What more could you want for your birthday?!I had a super chilled morning relaxing and doing my nails.

Midday hit and my family video called to sing Happy birthday whilst my boyfriend brought out my birthday cake.

They’re all so thoughtful!

After possibly too much cake, we went for a stroll, it was lovely to stretch our legs, get some fresh and and feel the sun beating down on our skin.

Side note – I was feeling creative the night before my birthday, so decided to liven up my hair a bit. I dyed it dark red, cut in a long fringe and layers. My hair feels so lighter and bouncier for it.

When we got home a few friends called to drop off presents separately,I said thank you and waved from down the road, because obviously we are social distancing!

Also one of my closest friends Katie dropped off a Giant Chocolate Cupcake.

How beastly does that look???

My other half made one of my favourite dinner’s, Seafood gnocchi. Oh my goodness, I dont know how he does it?

After dinner and a few drinks, and an incredible pamper session, we got into bed to snuggle down and watch a movie.

Even thought my 30th birthday wasn’t spend the way we had planned, it was wonderful and I’m incredibly thankful!
