A Boxset To Devour - The Marvelous Mrs Maisel

You know that feeling when you discover a new show and know you're going to get lost for a whole day because you can't stop watching it... Well, this is that show. It's set in New York in the 1950s and tells the story of a rich upper West Sider who finds her life falling apart when her husband leaves her. The main character Midge is confident and contradictory. She has to find something else that she's good at now she's no longer a wife. And naturally, accidentally, she falls into stand up comedy. 

The storyline feels so new and fresh. The production values are high, the sets amazing, the costumes gorgeous, the story multi-layered. A real treat.

Comfort TV - Sex & The City

I've been working abroad for the last two weeks with barely a moment for myself so this weekend called for a complete switch off and reboot. My recipe for relaxation? My sofa, a pack of triple chocolate cookies, a box set of Sex & The City and my watercolour set so I can paint while I half watch the screen. Because let's face it, I don't really need to watch as I know every episode off by heart which is the whole point of comfort TV.
