I hope you had a wonderful weekend. We hosted a casual cocktail party on Saturday night for some dear friends of ours that will be moving back to Dallas. While it was fun, we were exhausted on Sunday and took the entire day off to relax and get some much needed rest. Little known fact about me – I’m a binge watcher! Truth be told, if I have nothing going on, I love to be in my pajamas as soon as possible and settling in for some good shows, which is what we did yesterday. Do you love to binge watch shows? Today I’m listing what I’m watching and of course, I’ll be talking about Amazon Prime Day!
Before we dive into what I am currently binge watching, let’s talk about Amazon Prime Day. What is it? It’s a SALE exclusively for Amazon PRIME members. Amazon rolls out great deals for 24 hours with lots of surprises. I typically buy my vitamins, protein bars, household needs, pet supplies and generally anything I want shipped directly to me through Amazon Prime. It’s so convenient! Right now I am helping P.J. furnish his apartment and you can bet I will be doing it via Amazon Prime. They will ship furniture directly to him. I’ll save on shipping and delivery! What do you shop for on Amazon? Take advantage of the great deals on July 15/16! Click here to start.

Now, let’s talk binge watching, relaxing and pajamas… When I get a chance to relax, I always love to throw on my Soma pajamas since they are so comfy. And I especially love the Soma Cool Nights pajamas during the summertime. These are made from a breathable knit that keeps you cool and dry at night. I’ve noticed they also retain their shape and silky drape, even after countless washings and throwing them in the dryer. This racerback tank sleepshirt I’m wearing is particularly easy and light. And before I head to bed, I always bundle up in the matching robe, which is so soft! I love how the Soma Cool Nights pajamas come in tons of different patterns, colors, and styles. They tend to have most patterns in the gown, top, short, and pant options. There’s really something for everyone. Personally, I prefer a short sleepshirt or the shorts and top (I don’t like to sleep with with anything long around my legs). Soma is always updating their pajama selection with each season, so it always feels current when I shop there.
Fun Fact: My daughter Taylor and her bridal party all wore a Soma Cool Nights pajamas set and matching robe to get ready on her wedding day. They raved about how comfortable they were while they lounged around all day! You can even see in this blog post just how cute they looked together matching in their PJs and robes. Perfect photo memory!
Tanya’s Binge Watch List
Outlander – Unless you live under a rock, you know by now that I am OBSESSED with this show! It originally airs on STARZ but recently Season 1 & 2 have become available on Netflix. This show will cause me to 1) Travel to Scotland 2) Leave my husband for Jamie Frazer 3) do a DNA test to see if I am part Scottish 4) take up drinking whisky 5) find some standing stones and time travel back to 1745 6) need I go on???
The Affair – Originally on Showtime but you can stream it to get caught up. We watch it on Amazon Prime. Although season 1 is all about The Affair (obviously), the show, characters and plot have many layers. We just finished binge watching season 4 last night. Season 5 starts August 25. I love how the story is told from several different perspectives.
The Handmaid’s Tale – While I loved season 1 and thought season 2 was ok, I’m not loving season 3. Hoping to stick with it. It’s really dark and feels hopeless. Anyone else feeling this way? This show is on Hulu.
Ozark – It’s so dark yet so good! I was telling Katey of Chronicles of Frivolity the other day that this show makes me anxious in every way but somehow I care about the characters and can’t look away. Weird, right? By the way be sure to follow Katey – her blog is amazing! Seasons 1 & 2 can be found on Netflix and season 3 should be out by the end of 2019. By the way, Jason Bateman is so good at comedy and drama. Bravo!
Stranger Things – OMG – so good! Is there another show that nails the mid-80’s decor, fashion and mannerisms better than this one? I think not! Seasons 1 & 2 can be found on Netflix and season 3 released on July 4. I have not watched it yet because we did a deep dive into The Affair. Shhhhhh! Don’t tell me anything!
The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel – the is comedy/drama genius! Set in the 1950’s with impeccable writing and comic timing, you will fall in love with all of the characters! And the fashion – SO GOOD! This is Amazon Prime original programming and video is apart of Amazon Prime Day! Seasons 1 & 2 are on Amazon Prime. Season 3 should drop by winter 2019.
So what shows are you currently binge watching? I’d love to add them to my list.
xoxo – Tanya
P.S. I binge watch shows in singularity, meaning I can’t binge watch several series at one time. That’s why Stranger Things season 3 had to wait for me to finish The Affair season 1-4. Weird right?

This isn’t Prime, but on Netflix, we really liked the series “Wanted” -it’s based in Australia about two women on the run for their lives.
Thanks for letting me know about this show. I never knew about it.
When Meghan married Harry, I wanted to know more about her so I binged watched “Suits”. Oh Lordy, I didn’t know when I started there were so many seasons and so many episodes. I was consumed with that show and some days watched 4 or 5 episodes. But, I really don’t care about it as much with out Meghan and her boyfriend on the show.
Well, that’s a good reason to binge watch SUITS. I’ve never seen it but maybe I should add it to my watch list.
can you show me how to put my hair up like your pic?
Just demonstrated it on Instagram Stories. Be sure to watch!
Don’t forget prime members if you spend $10 at Whole Foods you get $10 credit to use on prime day. I love Mrs Maisel! I also watch Frazier and Cheers on Amazon Prime. I don’t think I binge watch I’ll watch maybe 2 shows max.
Good call out Kris. I forget to mention the Whole Foods part.
Thanks for the reminder!
Love my Soma nightshirts too! Just finished Game of Thrones, watched all 8 seasons in about 2 months!! Now watching Yellowstone with Kevin Costner, it’s good, similar to Longmire which we loved! Trying Outlander but need to keep watching as had trouble getting into after first two shows!
I am such a binge-watcher too! Absolutely loved Outlander & Ozark! I binged The Spanish Princess (on Starz) over the weekend & it was so good!
I am loving a girlfriends guide to divorce on Netflix
It appears we binge watch the same shows, and there are two shows you didn’t mention that you NEED to watch: The Widow and Big Little Lies!!!
Just binged Stranger Things then Marvelous Mrs. Maisel, now Abstensia!
