My top favorites on Netflix - updated December 2018

Holiday Movies

The Princess Switch // I love this movie! I would definitely say this is the best Christmas movie on Netflix. It's cheesy {like most holiday movies} but so entertaining and high quality.

The Spirit of Christmas // This one isn't new, but it was my favorite before The Princess Switch was added. It's so different from the typical Christmas movies. I'll probably be watching it again this year.

This Christmas Chronicles // Great movie! This one is not a holiday love story, so it's different and can be a breath of fresh air when you're in the midst of all these movies. 

How the Grinch Stole Christmas // We're lucky to have this Christmas classic available on Netflix! It's a holiday staple with the best quotes. {Yes, it's the Jim Carrey version.}

A Christmas Prince // Definitely a good movie, I really enjoyed watching it last year when it was new, but The Princess Switch had a lot of similar elements to me, so this one has been a little overshadowed.

The Holiday Calendar // I enjoyed the plot of this one. I thought it was a little bit more unique than some of the others, but I couldn't help but notice the acting was not great.

Christmas Inheritance // Not as good as the movies above, but worth a watch if you're making your way through the list!

TV Series

Reign // I'm obsessed with Reign. The storyline is always intriguing and they honestly have the best music for any TV show in my opinion. You'll definitely fall in love with Francis and there's a 99.9% chance you'll cry at some point during the series and it's so worth it. [4 seasons; complete]

The Carrie Diaries // One of my all-time favorite shows on Netflix, the prequel to Sex and the City is a must watch for every girl, even if you've never seen SATC. High school Carrie is so inspirational from her clothes to her NYC job. Plus, Austin Butler has a main role! [2 seasons; complete]

Gossip Girl // I'm not sure if I've ever encountered someone who didn't love Gossip Girl. Blair and Chuck are arguably relationship goals and there is an endless supply of drama to go around. I definitely think this series gets better in the last few seasons so be sure to stick around. [6 seasons; complete]

The Office // Oh my gosh, I don't even know where to start. I laughed, I cried, I became one of those people who references quotes from The Office. I know this show isn't for everyone, but I think you need to give yourself time to get into it and by season 3, you'll be deeply invested in the lives of the characters. [9 seasons; complete]

North & South // I love a historical drama and this one did not disappoint! The only negative is that there are just 4 episodes — but that makes this show the perfect Saturday binge watch. [1 season; complete]

Riverdale // I was so surprised by how much I liked this show. It's the perfect murder mystery and so binge-worthy, I couldn't stop watching. There's a great balance of suspense and comedy and all of the characters are strong. [2 seasons; ongoing]

Gilmore Girls // I finally watched the full series of Gilmore Girls and it was so good! It's different from other shows in a good way - it has a very peaceful and happy vibe. I love the length of this series because you follow the characters through such a big part of their lives. [7 seasons; complete]

Switched at Birth // This is a really good drama that captured my attention and I was always looking forward to what would happen next, all the way through to the series finale. One of my favorite things about this drama is that it's fairly realistic. [5 seasons; complete]

Parks and Recreation // I can't believe how many popular memes and phrases I didn't know came from this show! It's SO funny - I laughed out loud practically every episode and Leslie Knope is such an inspiration, although I feel more like an April Ludgate. [7 seasons; complete]

Merlin // If you loved Reign as much as me, Merlin has a lot of similar elements and I think that's one of the reasons why I loved it so much! This is one of the most "PG" shows I've watched on Netflix and I really enjoyed it. There's magic, royalty, and dragons! [5 seasons; complete]

The Great British Baking Show // Probably the best reality show on Netflix, this series is so calm and pleasant to watch. I love seeing all of the cool things the contestants bake and finding out who is star baker for each episode and who is going home. [5 seasons; ongoing]

The Good Place // There's only one season on Netflix right now and I really enjoyed watching it. There are so many twists, turns, and surprises — I was always waiting for what would happen next and it was rarely what I was expecting. It's a comedy, but not laugh out loud funny in my opinion. [2 seasons; ongoing]

Alexa and Katie // This show is primarily for children and, to be honest, I didn't enjoy the first episode but I kept watching to get it out of my "continue watching" section and, by the end of it, I was really enjoying it! It's sort of similar to Disney Channel's Liv & Maddie, in my opinion.  [1 season; ongoing]


To All The Boys I've Loved Before // SUCH A CUTE MOVIE! I haven't read the books, but I really enjoyed watching this movie and I had no idea Margot is Mona from Pretty Little Liars until I looked it up at the end. 

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 // I watched this without ever seeing the first one and still loved it! I love baby Groot!! This movie is funny and filled with action. It's for sure one of the best movies available on Netflix.

47 Meters Down // This movie gave me so much anxiety, but it was so good! It's definitely a little scary and suspenseful so I probably wouldn't recommend watching it at night, but it's a must-watch in my opinion.

Brain on Fire // I don't want to give too much of the plot away because the mystery is what makes this movie. I really enjoyed it and I was surprised to find out that the movie is based on a true story.

New York Minute // The first of a few throwback movies on this list, you really need more Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen in your life! There are several other famous faces in this movie and it's so fun to watch! 

The Princess Diaries // A childhood classic! Everyone loves The Princess Diaries and, if you haven't seen it, you definitely need to watch! If you have seen it, it doesn't hurt to watch it again, especially if it's been a while.

The Princess Diaries 2: Royal Engagement // Netflix doesn't always give us an original movie AND its sequel so it's super lucky that both Princess Diaries movies are streaming right now! It's the perfect double feature! 

Ella Enchanted // I watched Ella Enchanted all the time when I was younger and my cousins and I would always sing "Don't Go Breaking My Heart" from the final scene. I'm so glad it's on Netflix now because it's a great blast from the past! 

The Kissing Booth // I'm not usually a big fan of Netflix Originals, but this is one of the better ones I've seen. It's kinda good and kinda bad in a weird way. The acting isn't great, but it's not terrible if you're looking for a cheesy teen romance movie.

Kevin James: Never Don't Give Up // This is actually not a movie, but a one-hour comedy special. I usually like movies that Kevin James is in so I thought this comedy special was funny and a lot of the content was memorable.
