The countdown to June 6

I’ve been counting down to June 6 for what seems like forever. No, this isn’t going to be another wedding post…

Yes, June 6 is our wedding date (almost down to a year – hooray!) but it’s also the day that the second season of Orange is the New Black drops on Netflix! I became a bit obsessed with this series last summer and roped Mike into watching more than a few episodes over the course of a single weekend.

Netflix Canada OITNB Premiere

Earlier this week, I had the opportunity to preview the first two episodes of the second season of Orange is the New Black with my friend (Dr.) Kathleen courtesy of Netflix Canada! Sometimes blogging has serious perks and I’d definitely count this up there with one of the best.

I love a good themed cocktail, don’t you? The event was hosted at Malaparte in the TIFF Bell Lightbox, one of my favourite venues in the city thanks to its gorgeous views and consistently delicious food. See below: bloggers who eat.

It was also great to catch up with Casie & Shannon, two fellow OITNB-obsessed blogger friend ladies who I don’t see nearly enough of. Photo c/o Ms. Kelly!

The one downfall to binge-watching the whole season of an original series on Netflix is that you have to wait an entire long year for the next season to come out. There’s nothing like the sweet, sweet sound of that theme song to bring you back, though!

While I can’t tell you anything that happened after that wonderful screen, I can tell you that it was amazing. The second season starts like the first ended off: mouths agape. Get ready for a lot of new Piper + Alex drama!

Satisfy your urges until Friday June 6 by watching the trailer below:

Thanks for the invite, Netflix Canada! And thanks for the rooster cookie.
