Last week I had the pleasure of attending my first ever blogging event! Yay! I was sent courtesy of Mothers Meeting to attend an exclusive screening of the Netflix exclusive Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt; and oh my goodness did I have a fab day!
I headed to Soho baby-free (yes I got to carry around a real handbag with no nappies and sticky fingerprints) for an afternoon of … and I quote … ‘flavoursome food, divine drinks and posh pampering’ … how could I resist!?
When I got to the swanky establishment that is the Soho Hotel I was greeted by some rather dashing men in suits (sorry Pete) who handed me a wonderful Netflix goody bag containing a candle (red of course), SELFIE STICK!!!! and a foam hand to be used in the most delightful of ways! I was instructed to, upon being thirsty, hungry or in need of pampering, simply raise the foam finger and my needs would be catered too. Bloomin hell I was in heaven!
So several cocktails and canapés later a rather tipsy me and two of the loveliest ladies ever Laura from Life Unexpected and Charlotte from Berice Baby; headed into the private screening room to watch not one but three episodes of Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt.
I’m not one for simply watching whatever is on the box; I like to find a series, obsess over it and watch the whole thing until I can’t keep my eyes open any longer; and this my friends is one worthy of an all nighter or two!
“Rescued after 15 years in a cult, Kimmy Schmidt decides to reclaim her life by venturing to New York, where she experiences everyday life with wide-eyed enthusiasm. On a whim, she rents a room from Titus, a gay wannabe Broadway actor, who makes ends meet as a street performer in Times Square. The unlikely pair find they’re well-suited to help each other out, with Titus reintroducing Kimmy to modern life, and her providing him with the inspiration that you should never give up. Together they’ll make it through whatever life throws at them.”
The series is absolutely hilarious; I cried with laughter and that to me is such a rare and amazing gift! It is cast to perfection and the scenarios are just brilliant! If you’re after a new series to tickle your funny bones then this is the one for you; I promise you won’t want to move from the screen!
After watching three brilliant episodes we headed back for more cocktails, canapés and of course the pampering! I had an amazing head and shoulder massage and even got a cheeky manicure!
Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt launched on Netflix on March 6th so get watching folks!
Thanks for watching,
