I’ve been in the 90s mood lately. It all started with binge-watch sessions of Full House. After that I went for 90s binge-listen sessions on Spotify. So I was listening to this song – I know how 90s eurohouse can it get – and my mind wandered away and stopped at the personal branding station. Be somebody is a good motto. Be yourself is even better. Not for the world, but especially for yourself. And branding who you are will add value to your life. I remember when I was a little girl…
A few weeks ago, I was ready for season 6 of my favorite series on Netflix. Oh the deception, when I realized I had to wait at least 11 months for the last season, which was apparently not on Netflix. I was not ready for another series (yet), so I browsed to the movie section. Then I wondered: how many golden oldies would be available on Netflix? Well, surprisingly there were more than I thought!
Here are 10 golden oldies for your Netflix watchlist. If you’re a newbie in Classic Hollywood land, these movies are definitely worth watching. If you’re not a newbie: when is the last time that you’ve watched these classics?
Last week, I was doing my obligated cleaning round at home. As I was imagining how wonderful it would be if dust magically disappeared, dishes would clean themselves and how wonderful it would be to have my own personal cook during weekdays, another thought hit me. My cleaning dislike level is pretty high, but imagine how life was for a good 1950s housewife. A lifestyle without technological innovations like dishwashers, smart washing machines and induction cooking. More importantly, a time where a woman’s place was in fact often in the kitchen.
Let’s face it. All that Hollywood glamour, rock & roll and of course vintage style is lovely and nice, but truly living the everyday life in the 1950s as a woman… that’s a different story. Especially if you were married and had kids (since living together in those days was a no-no).
The last weeks, I’ve been thinking about the fun I had last year, when I started watching Mad Men, while everyone else was already at the last season. I don’t know where I was, but somehow I wasn’t aware of the existence of Don Draper & co in 2007.
It all started with couch potato activities last Tuesday when I came home after a nice dinner. Yes, couch potato activities can be very good for your creativity. Since I use Snapchat only for the filters, I decided to check if there were some new filters added that day. After chuckling about a hilarious filter, I decided to try out the “face swap with another picture” option. It’s actually a filter that I always skip. But not anymore. I finally understand the “hype” of this filter.
