I don’t know about you but I’ve been ready for the weekend since Monday. Well, technically since Sunday. I have some binge-worthy Netflix suggestions for the weekend and the perfect cocktails to go with them. Put on your fuzzy socks and get comfy for a weekend made in heaven.
Happy binging everyone.
