7 Shows to Binge Watch in Your Pajamas

Not surprisingly, one of our favorite things to do in our cozy PJs, is to settle in under the blankets with plenty of snacks and watch a good show marathon. Here are some of our favorite binge-worthy shows:

1. Gilmore Girls

If you don’t know this show, you’ll love the wit and banter of Rory and Lorelei – mother and daughter and best friends living in the small town of Stars Hollow. Melissa McCarthy (Bridesmaides, Tammy) also plays Lorelei’s friend and coworker in a more tame, but still funny role.

We love that these girls are the queens of movie nights that usually consist of classic old movies, candy, popcorn, and take-out of kinds.  What’s more, they’re often seen wearing the fun prints of PJ Salvage. Oh, and there’s seven seasons of this show so be prepared for the long-haul!

2. The Fall

Gillian Anderson (Skully from the X Files) stars in this thriller as a detective in Belfast trying to catch a serial killer.  It’s dark, serious, and a great story. Prepare to be creeped out! Fun fact: The killer is played by none other than Jamie Dornan, of the Christian Grey fame.

3. Last Tango in Halifax

After 60 years apart, two widowed high school sweet hearts finally get together – reunited through Facebook, of course. This may sound a little sleepy, but actually quite interesting and entertaining – particularly the troubled lives of their grown-up daughters. Try it, you’ll be hooked!

4. Parenthood

Parenthood is a family show that actually feels authentic and close to real life. It has an awesome cast including Lauren Graham from The Gilmore Girls and really great characters. It’s surprisingly good and it will leave you totally wanting to be a Braverman!

5. House of Cards

A dark and devious political drama with Kevin Spacey and Robin Wright as husband and wife. You definitely have to have an interest in politics to watch this, but the relationship between husband and wife is pretty intriguing as well. Bonus? Robin Wrights’s character Claire can be seen wearing some pretty fabulous silk pajamas!

6. Heart of Dixie

Zoe Hart (Rachel Bilson) is a NY doctor who ends up in the small southern town of Bluebell, Alabama. So this show can be a little silly at times, but it’s simply sweet and charming.  If you need something light or more family friendly, this is your show.

7. Scandal

Olivia Pope plays a former White House staffer who opens her own crisis management firm. There are tons of twists and turns in this show and it’s admittedly a little Soap Opera-ish, but for some reason it hooks you. What we really love: Olivia Pope’s outfits, especially her fluffy robes and PJs and giant glasses of red wine!

Oh, and you SHOULD be forewarned of the dangers of binge-watching…here’s a cautionary tale from Portlandia:

10 Easy Ways to Be Kind Today

No act of kindness, no matter how small, is ever wasted. -Aesop

We’re celebrating National Random Act of Kindness Day today! Do something nice for someone today and watch good things happen. You’ll feel good, they’ll feel good, and you never know the ripple effect of your one good deed!

Here are some ways to spread kindness today:

1. Buy a coffee for the person standing online behind you today.

2. Walk around your neighborhood and pick up any trash you find.

3. Look around your house and find at least one thing to donate. A coat you don’t need that could keep someone else warm right now? A stack of books you’ve already read that you can pass on? Bring what you find to the local donation center.

4. Bake a batch of delicious cookies and deliver them to your neighbor.

5. Buy yourself a bunch of gorgeous flowers, just because.

6. Leave a note for the mail man (or woman) and tell them how much you appreciate their service.

7. Shovel the walkway for an elderly neighbor.

8. Bring a basket of treats and toys to your local animal shelter and play with the animals!

9.  Tell a loved one how beautiful/handsome they look today.

10. Find an inspiring project on Kickstarter and donate money to it.
