AS WE HEAD INTO DECEMBER, WE’VE OFFICIALLY REACHED THAT TIME OF THE YEAR WHEN WE’RE ALL EITHER ‘OUT OUT’ (ON THAT LONG-AWAITED FESTIVE GIRLS’ NIGHT OUT, AT THE WORK CHRISTMAS PARTY OR CELEBRATING THE END OF THE LAST FULL WORKING DAY OF 2018) OR IN AND SO WELDED TO THE SOFA THAT VIRTUALLY NO INVITE ON EARTH WOULD HAVE THE POWER TO SHIFT US.
For those nights when there’s nowhere you’d rather be than at home spending some quality time with your sofa (and those days over the Christmas period when you’ve exhausted all the safe topics of conversation with your family and just want to be entertained) we’ve got a simple party season hack for you.
Bestvpn.com is a VPN comparison website, which, frankly, was not something the team at His & Hers knew we needed in our lives until this afternoon. But we were wrong. Because through them, you can connect to a server in most parts of the world.
What’s brilliant about this is that in doing so you can access content from that country, so if you’re based in the UK, all of a sudden you’ll be able to access US Netflix, which just so happens to have almost twice as much content as the UK Netflix has! So it’s well worth getting a little bit savvy in order to upgrade your film and TV options massively.
If you’re already thinking wistfully about relaxing in front of the TV over the Christmas holidays, the His & Hers team reckons it’s never too soon to start planning your leisure time! We’ve been asking for recommendations for great comedies to tide us over ‘til the new series of Brooklyn 99 airs and we’re already all stocked up on popcorn ready for some nice slow-paced evenings ahead.
Speaking of which, here are five of the best Netflix VPNs so you can enjoy just as many entertainment options as you’d get if you lived in the States (at last!) Alternatively, if you’re lucky enough to be going away on holiday over Christmas, or you’re working overseas, you may want to combat any homesickness by settling down in front of BBC iPlayer.
We know there’s a lot of pressure at this time of year to go out and cram a year’s worth of socialising into a few short weeks. However, every once in a while (especially during busy periods) living your best life might just mean donning your pyjamas for the night and giving yourself some time to relax and recharge.
Our only advice is that if you’re sharing the remote with your family, your friends or your other half this Christmas, if you can’t find something that everyone wants to watch, at least aim for a compromise. Yes, you may have to watch some sort of a ‘Christmas Special’, but you should also get the opportunity to line up a few of your own favourites over the Christmas break.
Also, if no-one’s treated you to a tub of Roses or Quality Street to tuck into in front of the TV, why not ‘gift yourself’ with some chocolates. The His & Hers team have been happily buying Ferrero Rocher (not as a gift) since early November, and we have no regrets about this!
We’re very proud to bring you this feature in association with Bestvpn.com. If you’d like to share your film or TV recommendations for the Christmas period (from classics to new releases) we’d love to hear from you, so please get in touch via the comments below.
