On Wednesday myself and some other bloggers part of the Netflix Stream Team headed to London no less for a very special preview of the new Netflix original series Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt.
We jetted off to London early in the morning and were literally like giddy teenagers off to our first disco haha! I’ve had never been to London before so I was so thrilled at this opportunity especially to have a day off from school runs, snotty noses, nappies and housework!! Now I admit I’m not to keen on flying but I was well looked after and helped to keep calm by Laura and Dani. Thanks for that girls, really appreciated!
We were picked up just after 10 in some very fancy cars. I’m pretty sure the pr for Netflix who was with us thought we were crazy, we were such messers…..that’s what happens when mom’s are let on the loose haha!
We had some time before the event started at 12pm in the luxurious Soho Hotel so myself and some of the girls had a wander on the infamous Oxford Street which was just up the road from the hotel.
When we headed back for the event we were treated with a goodie bag that had a selfie stick (omg how did I survive so long without one, I love it!!) a foam hand to hold up when we wanted a drink or anything lol & macaroons amongst other things.
We were well supplied with cocktails by some very…ahem….lovely waiters 😉 as well as nibbles. Then there was another room offering file and polishes and back massages for all the mums to relax and unwind with some well deserved pampering.
Within in the first minute of the episodes starting the whole room was in stitches! I knew it would be funny but this is so good, right up my street in terms of comedies!
It’s a fun, light-hearted & feel-good comedy that certainly had smiles on our faces when the first 3 episodes that we got to preview were over.
There’s some brilliant quotes/motto’s to live by in there too from Kimmy. One of my faves was along the lines of taking things that you can’t stand 10 seconds at a time! I often do that only minute by minute if I’m having a stressful day or whatever.
Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt was written and created by the comedy legend Tina Fey (Mean Girls, 30 Rock) and also Robert Carlock (30 Rock) so you know it’s going to be good when you hear those names! Here’s the trailer to get a jist of what it’s about!
All of season one will be available on Netflix as of 8.01am tomorrow morning 6th March! So come tomorrow evening I know what I’ll be doing for some ‘me-time’ 😉
If you haven’t got Netflix yet maybe now will be just one of many reasons why you might like to give it a go. Seriously they are come out with more and more great series & documentaries all the time.
It’s just €7.99 a month and your first month is free. I’ve had Netflix about 3 years now and the kids us grown up love it, there’s always something for everyone!
Let me know what you think of Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt if you decide to binge watch the whole series tomorrow night lol! Yaz xo
