About the DVD
Inspired by a true story, The Staircase follows writer and war veteran Michael Peterson after the suspicious death of his wife Kathleen. On December 9, 2001, Michael makes a frantic 911 call reporting Kathleen has fallen down the stairs of their Durham, NC home. But when the district attorney brings murder charges, members of Michael’s blended family must choose whose side they’re on and which version of events to believe. As the case becomes engulfed in a media circus, a French documentary film crew arrives to meticulously chronicle its many twists and turns. Intertwining multiple perspectives and timelines, this gripping limited series explores the elusive nature of truth, while serving as an intimate portrait of a family’s grief.
My Take on the Series
I always get drawn into these types of stories and this docuseries does not disappoint. The series had great actors and a storyline that really drew you in. Each episode adds to the mystery and through the episodes you really get to see and play out a number of the theories that came up in the actual case. The story is tragic and at times the series is not always easy to watch, especially as you relive the last moments of Kathleen again and again. The story is so complex and every episode really keeps you on the edge of your seat.

About the Series
If you are a Sex and the City fan, this is a great series that brings you up to speed on all of the great characters that you have come to love from the original series. While not all of the main characters are back, of the foursome, you will not see Samantha and her absence is hard to see and is felt in the series too. While this is the case you do get to meet a number of new characters too. The series gets into quite a few contemporary issues, challenges and problems that each of the characters are dealing with. After watching this I can say that I am excited to see season 2!

My Take on the series
WOW, this series is powerful! As you watch, you are transported into a story that is honest, eye-catching, and challenging at the same time. Zendaya presents an amazing character that will transfix you in the end, you have a series that gives you a lot to enjoy. Not only do you get strong acting, but the cinematography and writing make each episode explode, and you are drawn further and further into the world of Rue. Zendaya is captivating in her role and in playing the self-destructive, self-loathing Rue. She truly embodies the character completely and ends up mesmerizing the audience in every scene.

My Take on the Season
This was an amazing last season. The season brings you a great ending to a series but also brings to conclusion to a well written story too! As you go through the entire season you will be drawn into each episode. It is a roller coaster of emotions, but in the end the writers did a great job wrapping up the series. If you love this series you will love the end of this series!
How many of you love doing laundry? If you are like people I know this is something that most don’t enjoy, and Laundryheap is a service that can help you save time while taking care of those pesky laundry chores!
For me, laundry is something I dread. Much of this comes down to having teens in our home that seem to wear multiple outfits in a day. On top of this, in wearing a short and tie daily, having a service that can take care of ironing and dry cleaning would be amazing! I mean, I am always looking for ways to be more efficient and save time, as if I can, I can have more time to actually spend with my family doing the things that we love to do!
Laundryheap was established in 2014 to help busy people like all of us. They offer an on-demand laundry and dry cleaning service, with free
collection and delivery, within 24 hours. The nice thing with the service is that you can easily book the service via their website or through their mobile app.
WHAT YOU GET WITH LAUNDRYHEAP
- FREE Contactless collection & delivery
- Cashless payment
- Dry Cleaning, Laundry & Ironing
- Dedicated 24/7 support
- Real time order updates
Laundryheap is not in every market, but they are working on expanding. Currently you can find their services in certain areas of the following countries:
- United Kingdom
Laundryheap is easy, to use the service all you have to do is three things and you are on your way to getting clean laundry:
- Schedule a pickup for a service via the Laundryheap app.
- A driver will pick up any laundry that you have.
- Once complete a driver will return your clean laundry to your door!
Does this sound like something that can save you time? I know for me we seem to have to do laundry all the time with teenagers in the house and it takes so much time. While we can get some general laundry done in our house amid other chores and activities, getting dry cleaning or ironing done is something that does not get done often because it is time consuming and inconvenient. For me, this service would be amazing as it would save me a ton of time and effort!

As a BIG Friends fan, I always loved Central Perk as a coffee shop, a meeting point and a place for people to just come together. I always wondered what the coffee there would taste like. Would it have a sign out front saying BEST COFFEE IN NYC? Sadly, the actual location was fictitious, but now you can get the taste of Central Perk right in your own home and I, for one, am super excited!
Recently, I was sent some of the “How You Doin’?” coffee and as a medium roast coffee I have to say that I was really impressed. It had a great flavor and I could definitely see myself hanging out with Joey on the coach and catching up on his day on set while drinking this cup of java.
If you are a fan of Friends, but even more so, a connoisseur of good coffee, then I would highly recommend grabbing some of this great Central Perk coffee today!

My Take on the Movie
I saw this movie originally in the theater and it was the perfect end of the Downton era. The movie is called A New Era and you do get to meet a new regime that is coming next, but it is hard to say whether you will see this new era in a movie in the future (thought I would not mind if we do). In the movie you get all of the characters that you have come to love and each of them continues to grow individually. You find Tom Branson marrying a woman that was his perfect equal. You get to see Mr. Molesley showing some new talents that you never knew he had. You also see some characters with medical issues and others that come into new property and future opportunities. As mentioned, this is the perfect ending to an era and one that I know that I will not forget anytime soon.
