Netflix Documentaries That You Have To Watch

I seriously love the fact that in today’s day in age, we don’t actually need cable to watch our favorite shows. Since us millennials usually rely on social media to get the latest scoop or news in general. With all this technology now, an easy and affordable internet subscription is literally all you need, whether in be Netflix, iFlix, Amazon Prime or Hulu.

If it isn’t obvious yet, I am a Netflix user and these are a few of my favorite documentaries that you can easily click through over there!

Chef’s Table | If you are into degustation and seeing how these fancy restaurants come up with their out of this world dishes, this might be your TV show. Although not as casual as Anthony Bourdain’s Parts Unknown or No Resevations, but it is still worth a watch! Tip: probably not the best idea to watch this before you head to bed for obvious reasons…

Abstract The Art of Design | The art and design bug in me just bursted for joy when I heard about this series coming out! Its shows literally art in all shapes and forms, with the master’s behind it. This documentary just shows that there is definitely more than meets the eye and so SO much though is put in creating an art form or anything for that matter.

The People Versus O.J. Simpson | As a self-proclaimed Kardashian fan, I was more inclined to watch this because Kim K’s dad is one of the main stars on this film. But in all seriousness, I just wanted to be more informed of one of the biggest crime stories. ever. 

Tales By Light | I was instantly hooked on to this series as soon as I watched the 1st episode. This documentary is a perfect mix of beautiful cinematography, travel and nature. The directors/photographers/filmmakers captured their surroundings so beautifully. It will seriously be a feast for your eyes if you are into good film making and travel photography.

Metropolis | If you are interested on how our great ancient cities were made, down to the government, infrastructure, transportation and architecture. This might be your fave documentary! Each episode tells a story of a different city, even of city that date from Before Christ! Crazy! Go watch!

Twinsters | Of all the documentaries on this list, this has got to be the one that got me crying like a baby! A story of twin sisters separated at adoption and how they find their way back to each other. It makes me wish I had a sister! 😥

Cowspiracy | It has been over a year now that I have decided to give up red meat (pork, beef, lamb, etc.) Naturally, at first, I was feeling uneasy about the decision I made. But after watching Before The Flood and Cowspiracy, it gave me more reasons to continue to give up those types of meat. It shows what kind of impact humans have on the world. Powerful stuff.

4 Steps on Reorganizing Your Work Desk


Einstein may have argued that a messy workspace is a sign of a creative mind, I prefer however, an ‘organized mess’. That means lots of things but in an order the way I like it. This includes, greenery, cute stationary and everything on trend. Let’s face it – mess equals stress. 

So, to get your desk AND life in check, here are a few ways to upgrade your desk space. A happy space is a happy …. (I can’t find a fitting word that rhymes with space).

Declutter Your Desk

Decluttering is the very first step to upgrading your desk, as per the rules of Marie Kondo(link to her book, here!). If it no longer pertains to what you are doing right now, get rid of it! You don’t need a million post it notes from a month ago nor files of this that don’t mean anything to you anymore. Just let go!

Organize What’s Left

After decluttering, organize what you have at hand. Starting with your laptop files(I swear you feel like an organizational queen!) to the stack of paperwork  collecting dust and the useless spam emails that no one really reads. Keep your important items within your eyesight, but not too close too!

Personalize In An Inspiring Way

Personalize your desk in a way that is inspiring, but not distracting!(I find this quite difficult)Adding some flowers, motivational postcards and Instagram worthy stationery can really do the trick during a long day at work. 

Create A Ritual

Habits can be very powerful and to maintain a tidy desk, you’ve got to make it a priority. Create an end of the day ritual, what I like to do is that I write down all the tasks I have completed on my work calendar and at the end of everyday I write down what things I need to do on the next day. This really helps me start working in the morning, especially for a forgetful person like myself. Every week I like to also throw away all the pieces of paper I no longer need. Make a habit of creating an organized and productive work environment for yourself!

Mindsets To Help You Become Successful


Let’s be honest here. Even if we hate to admit it, a lot of us are all scared of not being the successful person we envisioned to be in the future; to travel the world, buy nice things, etcetera. But how do you become a successful person? It’s all about the mindset.

Well duh, of course a positive mindset will always make anything possible, but there are other mindsets that might help you as well, like being a risk taker or being a strong willed person who never gives up. Here are a few mindsets that might just help you conquer your ladder of success.

Set Your Goals And Act With A Purpose

Every great goal started with an even greater purpose. Keeping in mind the idea of helping someone/something at the end of the day makes it all the more worth it and helps you stay focused.

Take Risks

No one ever succeeds but just staying in their comfort zone. Be brave and be bold!

Choose Good Company

I find this very important!! Surround yourself with equally passionate and successful people that share your same mindsets. Those people can only lift you higher, as you can do with them.


Don’t Mind The Others

Everyone is walking their own path at their own pace. Don’t keep track on what others are achieving and why they are achieving it earlier than you. Just focus on yourself and put all of that energy into your passion project.

Choose What Matters To You

Success require so much dedication, so once you’ve set your goals, dedicate all your energy to it. I promise you that it won’t be easy in the beginning, but I swear it’ll be worth it!

Fake It Till You Make It

Confidence is key. Be proud of what you are doing, think big and one day success will be at your door step.

Be Grateful

When you are upset about a certain result, by not achieving a certain goal, look back at your past and think about all you’ve accomplished to be in the position you are in. Stay positive and grateful for every little thing that has happened.
