binge-worthy television show round-up. / sfgirlbybay

it’s a long weekend here in the states — we’re celebrating memorial day so monday’s a holiday and it feels a bit empty around town already. so forgive us, but we’re taking off early, too! i love this image by Sarah Hermans and was inspired to do something a little different for this week’s friday finds before we take off this weekend. I thought I’d share a few TV shows starring some amazing female leads that I’m binge-watching right now in the hopes that if you have some lazy downtime this weekend, you might like to watch them too! here goes! have a lovely long weekend — we’ll see you back here on tuesday!

xo, victoria

  1. killing eve — starring sandra oh and jodie comer. a hilarious, really well done BBC dark comedy about a beautifully flamboyant, psychopathic female assassin named Villanelle (jodie comer) and a newly recruited MI6 operative Eve Polastri (sandra oh) who are rather obsessed with each other. jodie comer’s facial expressions kill me (no pun intended) and her lines are some of the best. developed and written by Phoebe Waller-Bridge, i love this show and there are two seasons out to binge.
  2. fleabag — starring the aforementioned magnificent phoebe waller-bridge, fleabag is also a dark comedy (come to think of it all of these shows are!) that i loved so much I watched both seasons all in about three evenings. a British show about a dry-witted woman, known only as Fleabag, with absolutely no filter as she navigates life and love in London while trying to cope with tragedy. it’s brilliant!
  3. dead to me — starring christina applegate and linda cardellini. the two women meet in a support group and all is not what it might appear to be.  mayhem ensues while searching for the hit-and-run driver who mowed down jen’s (christina appelgate) husband while Judy (linda cardellini) tries to shield Jen from a shocking secret that could destroy her life as she knows it. a weirdly funny show about grief, loss, and forgiveness.

today we’re headed to spain, one of my very favorite countries, and specifically to Sevilla, which i’ve yet to visit! but now i have a new reason, because i’d love to dine at this beautiful spot, el pintón near the Giralda, the bell tower of Seville Cathedral and one of the highlights of the city. if you like gorgeous tiles and spanish tapas served in a typical Sevillian courtyard, this is where you need to be. the decor is sublime — pastel hues blend in with those pretty archways, so we’re going to dress the part in a flowy pale pink dress and pastel print kimono, strappy sandals and a turban-like headband, just for fun. should you find yourself waiting for your table, think about reading a few pages of Where the Crawdads Sing by Delia Owens. it’s is everything a good book should be — an exquisite ode to the natural world, a heartbreaking coming-of-age story, and a surprising tale of possible murder.

this week’s color story was inspired by all the pretty cherry and quince blossoms that are in season right now — my very favorite florals. and i mean, who doesn’t have a nostalgic fondness for pale pink peeking back from their childhood at some time or another? from pretty pink painted walls to flouncy slip dresses and elegant velvet dining chairs, we’re all about the pink today.
