If you are looking for something fun to add to your Netflix queue, I have just the show for you! Lindsey and I watched the entire 9-episode season of Julie and the Phantoms within about 12 hours… because it is just that dang cute. Sure, it’s a little bit ‘Disney’ feeling at times. However, the lead cast is so adorable and talented that we couldn’t resist.
Here’s the trailer that gives you a bit of an overview:
I’ve seen this show described multiple places as “a charmingly wholesome series” and that about sums it up. It’s not super squeaky clean though… there is still the total ridiculous of “Dirty Candy” and also really cute ghost boys who obviously do a lot of push-ups. I mean, come on. They’re ADORABLE. And I’m already looking forward to season two!
Have you watched Julie and the Phantoms yet? Are you also totally going to get caught singing along to them on your Spotify mix?
I blogged about my love for The Umbrella Academy when season one came out in April 2019 (read it here) The series of a dysfunctional, but likeable, superhero family pulled me in immediately and as soon as the first season ended, I was ready for season 2!
When the initial date release trailer came out — which was recorded by each cast member in their homes during quarantine — I watched it like 10 times in a row. And then when adding it to this blog post, I watched it 3 more times…
So, so good!
In my opinion, the second season was even better than the first season. The soundtrack was phenomenal too and I’ve already added it to my Spotify playlist. Here is the trailer for the second season. Be warned, it will suck you in!
This entire second season was so incredibly good that as I was watching it, I was already planning to re-watch it immediately. I thought I would miss Hazel and Cha-Cha a ton, but OHMYGOSH I loved the addition of the new characters. Five is still one of my absolute favorites, but every single character really brought it this season. Five. Diego. Klaus. Ben. Alison. Luther. Vanya.
However, the last few minutes made me angry… because now I can’t wait until season 3…
I mentioned months ago that I was going to use this Stay at Home time to work through my vast stash of lotions, potions and candles. As I’ve been experimenting my way through the hair products, I’ve fallen in love with the Moroccan Gold Series Treatment Mask!
I received the mask in my Winter 2018 FabFitFun box and didn’t even open it until 2 years later… so yeah, there is a reason I cancelled all but one of my subscription boxes! I received the 250ml version and it has been lasting me months and months. It is quite thick and a little goes a long way.
I start by scooping out a bit and slathering it on my ends and then working my way up to the top of my head. I let it sit on my hair for a few minutes, and then thoroughly wash it out.
It is a treatment mask, but I use it every time I wash my hair… which is about every 3 days. After months and months without a haircut, I was really noticing super dry split ends and this mask provided enough nourishment that it made my hair manageable until I was finally able to get to the stylist!
After trying out every single conditioner/mask/hair treatment in my stash, the Moroccan Gold Hair Treatment Mask is my absolute favorite. It is expensive though… I priced it on both the Moroccan Gold website and Amazon and the 250ml jar is around $39 with the 550ml jar for $59. I just reordered the big jar for myself.
It is pricey, but the jar lasts so long and makes my hair look so much healthier that I’m calling the splurge worth it.
