Hello, lovelies! Today, I wanted to share some of my Netflix favourites with you! Let's be real, we all spend way too much time in bed relaxing and binge-watching Netflix series. With the insane winter weather we've been having these past few weeks, I can assure you that I've been spending most of my time off being lazy in bed with Netflix! Let's get started...

This time around, the series follows the life of Penelope, a newly single Army veteran, and her Cuban-American family, as they navigate the ups and downs of life. Now a nurse, Penelope is raising two strong-willed children. When faced with challenges, Penelope turns to her "old-school" mother, and her building manager, who has become an invaluable confidant. The series offers a contemporary take on what life looks like in both good and bad times, and how loved ones can help make it all worthwhile.

Red promises to teach Liz to think like a criminal "to see the bigger picture," whether she wants to or not.
