I’m super excited! It’s Friday, and after weeks on end of working non stop, and working lots of nights, finally I have a night when I can stay home, throw on some comfy clothes, light some candles, and kick back for a little Netflix and Chill session.
I don’t get too many nights home, alone, with a chance to just chill, so I’m really looking forward to it, and making a list of my Netflix and Chill Essentials.
If you’re going to chill out on the couch you have to start with something super comfy to wear. You just cannot beat a really great pair of yoga pants. I love Spiritual Gangster Namaste Arch Yoga Leggings. I get them at YogaOutlet.com.
When you’re chilling on the couch in yoga pants you need an oversized tshirt and some fluffy socks to complete the outfit. I’ve also been looking online at the PJ sets from Adore Me. I particularly like the Suri PJ set – it looks super comfy too.
A Hydrating Face Mask
If I’m chilling on the couch with a movie I’m probably going to have a facial mask on. I always love extra hydration, so rather than a clay mask that I have to get up and wash off, I always opt for giving my skin a good soak with some yummy hydration like this Eve Lom Moisture Mask.
A Throw Rug
The sofa has to have pillows and a throw. Not negotiable. I love this Mongolian Faux Fur Throw from Nordstrom.
A Glass Of Wine.
Depending on my mood I will either have a New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc or a glass of red. One of my girlfriends turned me onto this sulphite free organic red from Trader Joes called Well Read. It’s under $10, tastes great, and without sulphites it’s headache free. If I’m doing the red (which I probably will), I will also channel my inner Olivia Pope and do some popcorn as well.
I’ve been buying Trader Joe’s organic popcorn kernals and cooking them with a little olive oil. I love home made popcorn.
The room has to have candles. Before Christmas I bought a paper star light at IKEA, and it’s one of my favorite things. It gives off a soft, yellow gold light that looks lovely with candles. I always have to have candles burning when I’m at home. My latest favorite is a Jo Malone Basil and Neroli. It makes me think of Italy. I always have lots of plain candles too, so the fragrance doesn’t get lost among too many smells.
I have loads of options in my queue, (largely because I seldom get time to watch any of them), but I think tonight I will watch either Cairo Time with Patricia Clarkson or Mademoiselle C, one of my absolute favorites, about Carine Roitfeld and her CR Fashion Book.
What are your favorite shows on Netflix? I need something new to binge on…
