  • Love this new post, because there are so many interesting things to look through! I loved all the movies you metioned, great year for film. Hope you have an amazing trip!



    • rae

      So glad you loved this post and that you enjoyed the links! And yes, it really has been a great year for film! Thanks, Tania! Made it safely to the US and we are off to Puerto Rico in a few days!

  • Oh, it sounds like you watched such great movies this week! How was the Danish Girl? I heard Eddie Redmayne was incredible! I’ve heard so many things about Making a Murderer, I’ll HAVE to check it out soon! Haha <3

      It was a bit insane! I usually go to the movies once every 2 months (I love going to the movies, but it’s expensive!), so it was definitely not typical. And yes Eddie Redmayne is such an incredible actor! Definitely check out Making a Murderer, you will NOT be disappointed!

  • I still haven’t seen Star Wars, I am not a big fan of it but since I’ve watched all the other films, I want to watch it too. I hope you will enjoy your Puerto Rico trip, and take so many great photos :)

      Yeah, I was kind of impartial about Star Wars before seeing the last one. I definitely enjoyed 1-6 but I would not really call myself a fan in the way a lot of people are really crazy about the films (which is totally fine! I just didn’t connect with them on that level) but I really loved the last one so much, and having seen the previous ones, it did definitely help to have the back story for watching the newest one, although I would def. say that it is not a must. But seeing as you have already seen the other ones, I would go for it. The comedy in the new one is much more updated so I enjoyed that a lot. And thanks so much! Currently in Virginia and will be leaving for Puerto Rico in a few days!

  • LEJA

    Love these links. Food looks delicious. Great post and have fun in Puerto Rico.


    • rae

      Glad you enjoyed the post! And thanks!

  • Great pics! Probably shouldn’t read the Netflix article since I’m already too slothish (slothy?) for my own good!

  • Yeee have a good time in Puerto Rico and stateside! Great round up – I got addicted to Making of a Murderer too and totally binge watched.

    xo, Alice || a l i c e / T Y P E N U

    • rae

      Thanks Alice and yes! It is such a good show! Trying not to binge watch though, because I don’t want it to be over too soon!

      • I did something even worse – I couldn’t wait for the end to find out what happened to I googled it by the time I was on the 3rd episode.

  • Sybil

    i’ve always connected the making a murderer hype with serial too!! i started watching it already, can’t wait to finish! :D

    also, need to make sure i put the oscar nominated movies in my must watch list!

    Have a great week!

    Animated Confessions

    • rae

      Me too – I mean it makes sense actually since they are both in the true crime genre. I only watched episode 1 but I am so hooked and am planning on watching the second episode today! Have a wonderful week as well, Sybil!

  • I was addicted to Making a Murderer too, I am certain he didn’t do it

    • rae

      So good right?! I am only at the very beginning of the series, but it definitely looks that way so far to me too!

  • I need to start Making a Murderer asap. So much hype about it!

  • Hayley Roderick

    I love these series! You have an amazing blog!:) xx, Hayley

    • rae

      So glad you enjoy LFB’s weekly roundups!

  • Forever envious of your awesome food finds! If – no, WHEN – I visit Berlin, I’ll have to get ALL THE RECOMMENDATIONS from you. Hope your flight went well love, and that you’re having an amazing time with family! Would love to chat all things MaM with you too *-* I’ve been devouring all sorts of articles and links since watching it! xx

    • rae

      Haha it’s so easy in Berlin! There are so many ridiculously good places to eat! And of course! You have to come to Berlin. Will show you all around! My flight went fine, although the original flight ended up getting cancelled due to snow so I had to re-organize everything last minute but it all worked out! And I have only just started watching MaM but I am always up for discussions about controversial cases!

      • I’m so desperate to visit, one of my colleagues from an old job moved there last year and a few of the Uni girls have spent time there too. Think it’s my turn next ;) oh gosh that sounds stressful, glad you’re there safe and sound. Oh yes lady, let me know what you think when you’re doing watching!

  • Nice roundup. Keep us updated weekly, we enjoy reading them. Have a great week.

    • rae

      Thanks, Barbrah!

  • I loved this! I obviously need to be following you on instagram!

      Ah do it! I post (almost!) every day! :)

  • Have a lovely trip! Looking forward to seeing the content you come up with from your visit to Puerto Rico,
    I can already see the stunning images in the my mind. Also, I need to watch this Making a Murderer show.
    I’ve been hearing about it non-stop, I’ll have to give a go sometime this week.

  • This is such a cool post, I absolutely love the photos! And the cat asdfghjk <3 Thanks for sharing this! xx

  • I’ve heard so many great things about “Making a Murderer”, and as a huge Serial fan I should probably just finally start watching it!

  • I hear you, girl. Loud and clear! I’ll send you over some details in just a bit. <3 Thanks for sharing your love for my series.

  • Jasmine

    Thanks for sharing some inspiration! That bowl looks delish and I’ve been wanting to see The Revenant! I need to hole up in some movie theater soon to catch up on everything. Have fun in Puerto Rico!

    be the plebeian

  • OMG CAN WE TALK ABOUT MAKING A MURDERER FOR A SECOND?! My husband and I area completely obsessed. It’s ridiculous. I can’t believe I haven’t even listened to Serial but I feel like after watching this, I’d be a fool for not. Also, you constantly make me hungry with your food adventures/inspirations… (I’m waiting for dinner to be ready as I type this and my tummy is growling like mad lol)

  • I love the ‘on the web’ links. 1. I need to try that broccoli ginger soup! 2. Making a murderer is sooo damn addicting!!

  • I really want to watch the danish girl! Also, loving that feminist series – you should definitely take part!! As for TV series to watch, I hate starting new ones as I have OCD to watch all of the previous episodes in one sitting (which never ends very well), so I’m just waiting for The Walking Dead to get back on screen again :)
