Ebony Plans A Detox – Something A Little Different.

April 2, 2013

I’ve recently been on a documentary binge and one of the most poignant ones I watched was ‘Hungry For Change’; a film centred predominantly around American nutrition (or lack thereof) through anecdotes of people who had either turned to juice detoxes or started incorporating juicing into their diets. I would strongly recommend you give this a watch if you think that you’re not treating your body properly: it’s surprisingly influential for a Netflix find. Give it a watch!

Gossip Girl’s Final Season Is Upon Us.

September 5, 2012

Our favourite Manhattan stylista socialites will be hanging up their Louboutins around Christmas time this year – Gossip Girl is back on October 8th for its last ever series. Another dampener is the rumour that the show will only be running for around 10 episodes this time, which is less than half than the other ones – 10 sets of 40 minutes are just not enough for my last ever GG fix.

Netflix is now Available in the United Kingdom!

January 10, 2012

Much to my boyfriend’s delight. Despite claiming that their next country to venture to was going to be Spain by 2013, it turns out they’ve opened up to the UK first.

Here’s the info.

We checked it out last night, choosing to watch Supersize Me – which was amusingly his top recommendation. The speed of streaming is brilliant and it’s such a relief compared to the epic fannying around that watching films off dodgy websites entails. However, the library available isn’t as brilliant as I’d have thought it would be, meaning I’d still be drawn to other sites for more recent films, or things that aren’t available on Netflix. TV shows look pretty good though, think I’ll be using my account to watch every episode of The Office. Sorry, English degree…

You get a free 30 day trial if you sign up through your Facebook (it notes on your page whenever you watch a film – go advertising!), which then becomes £5.99 a month if you choose to keep it going after the first month. Maybe the library will open up a little once the website finds its feet in the UK, you never know. ‘Til then, TV shows ahoy!
