It’s here!

Hallmark’s Countdown to Christmas lineup has officially arrived more than 100 days before Christmas.

As much as I love the holidays and cannot wait to cozy up by the fire with my spiked hot chocolate to watch these gems, I have to admit it is a little early to be talking about the holidays.

I’m still just trying to take in all of the pumpkin spice items in all of their glory.

However, it’s Hallmark’s 10th anniversary of Countdown to Christmas, so I can’t blame them for being excited to share all these fantastic movies with us!

To celebrate the milestone, the network is adding a whopping 24 new movies to the lineup (plus 16 on the Hallmark Mystery Channel) for a total of 40 new holiday offerings. That’s sure to keep you busy through the cold winter months.

The festivities kick off on Saturday, October 26 (5 days before Halloween) with “Christmas Wishes & Mistletoe Kisses” starring The Vampire Diaries/ The Originals/ Legacies actor, Matt Davis (Alaric Saltzman), who is new to the Hallmark holiday family!

They start Friday, October 25th on Hallmark Mystery.

It wraps up on Saturday, December 28, with a NYE-themed film aptly titled, “New Year, New Me.”

We have a few favorites on the lineup so far:

“Merry & Bright” stars Full House favorite Jodie Sweetin (Stephanie Tanner), “Write Before Christmas,” which brings together One Tree Hill alums Chad Michael Murray and Torrey Devito (who also stars in Chicago Med), “Christmas in Rome” with Mean Girls’ Lacey Chabert and The Bold Type’s Sam Page, “Christmas Town” with Fuller House’s oldest sis Candance Cameron Bure (DJ Tanner), “A Blue Ridge Mountain Christmas” with She’s All That’s Rachel Leigh Cook, and “A Christmas Miracle” with Tamera Mowry-Housley.

This ‘Legally Blonde’ Drink Off of the Starbucks Secret Menu Would Make Elle Woods Proud

Published

Legally Blonde

Have you ever found yourself wondering “what would Elle Woods do?” Or better yet, “what would Elle Woods order at Starbucks?”
 
If you have, you’ve probably thought that you’d want to order the same thing, right? After all, who doesn’t want to be like the independent and fierce lawyer?
 
Well, TotallytheBomb.com revealed that Elle’s order is on the Starbucks Secret Menu. It’s called the “Legally Blonde Drink,” and is everything you’d expect — sweet, fruity, and pink.
 
The drink has no affiliation with the movie, but it’s the same shade of pink that our girl Elle would wear! 
 
The drink is a combo of unsweetened Passionfruit Iced Tea, light Heavy cream, some vanilla, and more. You can find the whole recipe here
 
 
And the best part is that it’s a low-calorie drink clocking in at only 50 calories, according to the blog. You know it’s a good day when a Starbucks drink is easy on the calories! 
 
Once you’ve got your pretty pink drink, you can get your day started and feel like a boss just like Elle Woods and the woman who brought her to life, Reese Witherspoon! 
 
Any drink that’s on the Starbucks Secret Menu means that baristas likely won’t know about it until you tell them AND give them the recipe. 
 
And since they’re making it for you from scratch, you have to be kind and considerate since it may take them a bit longer.
 
You don’t have to follow this rule, but it’s one I live by: avoid ordering from the secret menu during rush hour and anytime the baristas are visible swamped. 
 
Voila! Or should I say “bend and snap”?

‘Tiger King’ Comic Book Provides Origin Story for Joe Exotic and Carole Baskin’s Feud

Tiger King Comic Book

Someone call the superheroes because there are two new comic book villains in town!

If you couldn’t get enough Tiger King and want to know more about the rivalry between Joseph Maldonado Passage aka Joe Exotic and Carole Baskin, you’re going to have the grab the brand new biography comic book.

The 24-page flipbook titled “Infamous: Tiger King,” was released on Wednesday by TidalWave Productions and written by Michael Frizell and drawn by Joe Paradise.

It’s based on the largely streamed Netflix documentary series that debuted in mid-March. 

The press release describes the comic book as the “origin story” of the “stranger than fiction” feud between Joe, the flamboyant, gay zookeeper and former country star, and Carole, his arch-nemesis and owner of Big Cat Rescue. Joe is currently in jail for the attempted murder-for-hire of Carole. A judge recently gave Baskin control of Joe’s zoo.

The missing person’s case against Carole’s late husband, Don Lewis, is being revisited after Joe claimed she killed him in 1997 and fed him to tigers.

Rightfully, the comic “book will also include a page about the treatment of animals from written by PETA Foundation Director of Captive Animal Law Enforcement Brittany Peet, who was also in the Netflix documentary.”

“This is one of the first times since we left Diamond almost a decade ago to have fun with comic book retailers.  If they bought a certain amount of comic books, we gave them a variant for Free.” said Publisher Darren G. Davis.  “Putting this book together with Joe and Michael might be one of the best times I have had in comic books in over 20 years”.

Print copies of the comic are available on Amazon and through various comic book retailers. 

The digital version can be purchased on iTunes, Kindle, Nook, ComiXology, Kobo and wherever e-books are sold. There are 14 variant covers for the comic, so be sure to snag the one you like best!

Survey Finds ‘Tiger King,’ ‘Money Heist’ and ’13 Reasons Why’ Most Watched Netflix Shows During COVID

Tiger King and Money Heist Most Watched Shows During Quarantine

What are your viewing habits during the months-long coronavirus pandemic?

If you’re a TV connoisseur like myself, you’ve likely been enjoying this time indoors by catching up on the laundry list of shows you’ve filed away under “to binge one day when there’s time.” 

There’s time now — lots of it. 

Turns out, the shows I’ve been wanting to watch were also on other people’s lists because many of them made it to LoveCraft.com’s list of “most loved Netflix shows” during the pandemic. 

The site analyzed Google Trends data since March 2020 to find the most popular shows by state. 

Unsurprisingly, Tiger King (which seems like it was a lifetime pre-COVID) was the most watch documentary in a total of nine states. 

Money Heist (which I recommend with every fiber of my being because it’s the most thrilling show I’ve seen in well, forever) landed in second place pulling views from New York, California, and New Jersey. 

The Southern states were most into 13 Reasons Why and Riverdale. 

The Chicago Bulls documentary series The Last Dance was unsurprisingly the top viewed show in Illinois. 

All that binge-watching takes a lot of time, so LoveCraft, a global crafting community, used the research to develop a calculator to figure out how much knitting can be done while watching the most popular shows across the United States.

“Knitting and watching TV have always gone hand-in-hand. There’s even a name for it now – Nitflixing! What’s not to love about watching your favorite show while working on your latest make. With our craft calculators, you can now work out how many episodes it will take to complete your next project. Perhaps you knit yourself a new hat while watching Money Heist, or go the distance and make two crocheted blankets while binging Riverdale!” 

Turns out, you can make some solid pieces while watching Money Heist, 13 Reasons Why, or American Horror Story

Check it out: 

  1. Tiger King: 5 hours = a knitted pair of booties for a baby
  2. Money Heist: 31 hours = a knitted hat for an adult 
  3. 13 Reasons Why: 46 hours = a crocheted bag
  4. Stranger Things: 22 hours = a crocheted toy
  5. American Horror Story: 86 hours = a knitted jumper for an adult
  6. The Last Dance: 10 hours = a crocheted pair of booties for a baby
  7. Jeffrey Epstein: Filthy Rich: 4 hours = a knitted pair of booties for a baby
  8. Black Mirror: 22 hours = a crocheted baby romper
  9. Riverdale: 63 hours = two crocheted blankets 
  10. Dead to Me: 9 hours = a knitted candle holder

You can also check out the breakdown of popular Netflix shows by states with the highest population:

  1. California – Money Heist
  2. Texas – 13 Reasons Why
  3. Florida – Money Heist
  4. New York – Money Heist
  5. Illinois – The Last Dance
  6. Pennsylvania – 13 Reasons Why
  7. Ohio – Stranger Things
  8. Michigan – The Last Dance
  9. Georgia – Riverdale
  10. North Carolina – Tiger King

And while Grey’s Anatomy didn’t make the list, the series is the longest-running on Netflix with 363 episodes adding up to 260 hours. In that time, you could knit 10 children’s jackets. 

If there was ever a time for you to multi-task and take up knitting, it’s now when you’re watching all these TV shows!
