My Favourite True Crime & Conspiracy YouTubers

I don't know about you, but I've loved try crime for as long as I can remember, I used to watch so many documentaries and those tv shows about wives killing their husbands, but since I've found the true crime and conspiracy side of Youtube.. I've been hooked. I mean, we all love a conspiracy don't we? If it's about Madeline McCan or 9/11, we all have our theories. So I thought today I would share with you a few of my favourite true crime and conspiracy YouTubers.

Shane Dawson
I think most of us found Shane when he was famous for his food related videos, but over the past few years he's most definitely transitioned into the conspiracy side of YouTube, he's covered so many that it's actually difficult to count and now that he's turned his conspiracy videos into a 2 part series on his channel, it's something you need to grab a lot of snacks for and be mind blown.

Kendall Rae
I've been watching Kendall for so long now, I think what drew me to her channel was that she did both true crime and conspiracy videos; she also features victims family members on her channel to tell the story of their missing or departed loved ones which truly brings a more personal touch to the story. Last year her husband and herself started The Mile Higher Podcast which is hands down my favourite, covering true crime, conspiracy's and extraterrestrial sightings.. the bonus part? Every episode is over an hour long.

Georgia Marie
This girl. I found Georgia so long ago through her midweek mystery videos and I have never seen someone put so much time and work into researching for a video, she has mentioned before that she can be researching up to or more than 40 hours a week for cases and her videos can be anywhere from 10 minutes to over an hour long. Georgia also does a Serial Killer Spotlight on the last Saturday of every month, featuring some of my favourite cases to date.

Danelle Hallan
I think I've been watching Danelle since maybe her 5th video on her crime channel, she's the only YouTuber I watch who solely does true crime videos, from missing people, Jane Doe's, serial killers and found victims. She covers so many unknown cases that don't get much spotlight which is such an amazing way to use a platform. She also has a podcast with another true crime YouTuber called Crime After Crime, which is worth a listen too!

Who are your favourite True Crime or Conspiracy YouTubers, who else should I be watching?

15 Binge Worthy Netflix Shows

Weekends are for binging Netflix right?

I like a good Netflix binge just as much as the next person, it's the perfect company when you're doing jobs around the house or when you're writing blog posts just like this one. I thought I'd share 15 of my all time favourite Netflix shows with you today, the ones I always end up re-watching when I can't think of something else to watch.

Jane The Virgin
One of my all time favourite shows, I've rewatched it more times than I can remember and it still makes me laugh and cry. The show follows Jane a devote catholic girl who's saving herself for marriage accidentally inseminated at a routine check up, but the twist.. the biological father (who is married) happens to be her teenage crush. 5 Seasons of her telenovela life. 

Chilling Adventures Of Sabrina
Someone asked me which version of Sabrina I liked better and there isn't an answer, ones a comedy and one is horror. If you like dark shows which touch on cults, witches, satanic and just plain breathtaking shows then you will love this. The show follows Sabrina trying to balance her half-mortal life while fighting the evil forces that threaten her, her family and the daylight world humans inhabit. Currently two seasons, but impatiently waiting for season three.

Prison Break
I remember watching this when it was on tv, like before it was on Netflix. I had the biggest crush on Michael Schofield, it's insane how big of a crush it was. But anyway, the story follows two brothers, Lincoln Burrows and Michael Schofield, Burrows has been sentenced to death for a crime he didn't commit, and obviously Schofield devises an elaborate plan to help his brother escape and clear his name. 5 Seasons of the best television you'll probably ever watch. 

The Good Place
This show is probably the funniest show I've watched. The story follow Eleanor Shellstrop who wakes up in the afterlife known as "The Good Place" a highly selective heaven-like utopia that Michael designed, however she realises that she was sent there by mistake and must hide her morally imperfect behaviour while trying to become a better and more ethical person. 

I've managed to get so many people hooked onto this show, the twists and turns in every season always hooks me so I can't look away. The show follows Archie Andrews life in the small town, exploring the darkness hidden behind it's seemingly perfect image along with Betty Cooper, Jughead Jones and Veronica Lodge. 

We've all seen this haven't we? If you haven't, where have you been and why are you still reading this? I binged the whole season on Boxing Day (I was recovering from surgery so that's my excuse, I don't have one for the others) and honestly it's so messed up, but I can't wait for the next season. The show follows Joe (although we all know it's Dan and he just moved away don't we?) becoming infatuated with an aspiring writer, Beck. Feeding into his obsession, he turns to social media to track her presence and removing every obstacle standing between their romance.

Pretty Little Liars
I've been watching this show since 2012, I think I've rewatched it a good 12 times since then, it's one of my all time favourite shows, ever. The story is set in Rosewood, Pennsylvania following the lives of five high school girls; Spencer, Alison, Aria, Hanna & Emily, whose clique falls apart after the leader of the group Alison goes missing. A year later the remaining friends are reunited when they begin receiving messages from a mysterious villain named "A" who threatens and tortes them for the mistakes and lies they've made and told before and after Alison's disappearance. 

Gossip Girl
I blooming love this show, another one that I've rewatched at least 10 times since it's aired. The show begins with the return of Upper East Side teenage 'it girl' Serena Van Der Woodsen from a mysterious absence, she's reunited with her frenemy Blair Waldorf and her mother Lily Van Der Woodsen, while she also meets Dan Humphrey (aka Joe from You), an aspiring writer from Brooklyn.

It took a while for me to get around to watch this, but I'm so glad I did, I fell in love with Mickey's character and how bad ass/strong that woman is. The show follows Mickey and Gus, exploring the male and female prospectives in their romantic relationships. Also highlighting addictions with alcohol, drugs, sex and love. 

I think I fell in love with this show because of my love for history, it's the only historical drama I've ever really become obsessed with. The series follows the early exploits of Mary Queen of Scots who faces political and sexual intrigue in the treacherous world of the French court. If you like historical dramas, then I highly recommend watching this.

Stranger Things
Everybody knows about Stranger Things by now, but I'm still mentioning it because I bloody love it. I'm so excited for season three in July! The show is set in a fictional town Hawkins, Indiana during the early 1980's. The series starts when Will Byers is abducted by a creature from the Upside Down, his mother Joyce and the police chief Jim Hopper search for him. At the same time a young psychokinetic girl called Eleven escapes from the Hawkins National Laboratory and assists Will's friends, Mike, Dustin and Lucas in their own efforts to find Will.

This is probably my favourite easy to watch show, although it has some insane twits and turns that you'd never expect. The show begins with heiress Fallon Carrington unhappy to find his billionaire father Blake engaged to Cristal, a rival employee of the family company. When Fallon's machinations to separate the couple backfire and cost her promotion, she allies with Blake's nemesis and former employee, Jeff Colby, and strikes on her own.

A Series Of Unfortunate Events
I've loved this story since I first read it in year 4 in primary school, the audio book, the actual book, the film.. I was obsessed, so obviously the series is going to be in my favourites. The series follows the Baudelaire orphans saddled with an evil guardian Count Olaf, who will do whatever it takes to get his hand on their inheritance. The show is spread over three seasons and is a must watch.

How To Get Away With Murder
It took me so long to give this show a chance and I'm not too sure why, I got hooked pretty much straight away and now I have to stop myself from re-watching it too much. The series starts with Annalise Keating, a law professor at a prestigious Philadelphia University who, with five of her students, becomes entwined in a murder plot. Five seasons of perfection if you ask me.

American Horror Story
I'm literally obsessed with this show, I mean maybe because I've fallen so in love with Evan Peters but also because of the insane storylines. So far there are 8 seasons, Murder House, Asylum, Coven, Freak Show, Hotel, Roanoke, Cult, Apocalypse and 1984 which is airing this year. Honestly if you like weird shows that involve horror storylines then you'll love AHS, I just love that all the seasons are connected somehow. Please watch it! 

What are some of your favourite shows to binge on Netflix? I'd love some new recommendations!

Getting To Know Me | 25 Facts About Me

Hey you! How are you?

I thought I would introduce myself, I'm Daisy, I'm a 23 (nearly 24) year old blogger from a small town in the East of England. To kick things off, I thought I would start off this little space on the blogosphere with some facts about me. I love posts like this probably because I am a bit nosy, so I really hope you enjoy these too!

1. I have 5 tattoo so far (Ankle, thigh, rib, wrist and back of my neck) and I do have plans for many more. 

2. My all time favourite colour is baby pink, although pastel blue is a close second, you wouldn't think that considering how much black I wear.

3. I have been vegetarian since I was 4 years old (that's nearly 20 years holy cow) and I've been vegan since 10 August 2018, it's coming up to my first veganiversary which is very exciting. 

4. I blooming love Disney, I have the entire Disney classics DVD collection and my dream is to go to a Disney park one day.

5. I have never been on a plane or left England before, although I'm hoping that will change this year.

6. I've never watched Game of Thrones or Star Wars.. Apparently that's shocking to some, maybe one day.

7. I am such a morning person, I love mornings. I'm usually up by 6am unless I've been up late, by late I mean anything after 10pm.

8. I have a slight candle addiction, I think I have 15 Yankee Candles in my wardrobe alone, that's not counting the ones I've been burning or for decoration. 

9. I haven't had many pets in my life, but growing up I had a Rottweiler called Angel, numerous goldfish and now I have a Rag-doll cat called Poppy.

10. I haven't always been a Hudson, it's a very long story but I changed my name in January 2017 and I've never been happier! Felt like such a weight had been lifted removing my old name from my life.

11. I cannot stand coffee, the smell or the taste! I hate putting it in chocolate cakes or brownies, but it's a must to get that incredible flavour.

12. I've never broken a bone (hoping I'm not jinxing this), but I have done everything else possible to my ankles. Growing up I was on a first name basis with the X-Ray department at my local A&E, you could say I was a little clumsy.

13. Legally Blonde is probably my favourite movie of all time, it's just the most inspiring girl power movie I've ever seen... I mean, didn't we all want to be Elle Woods at some point in our lives?

14. I used to be a huge wrestling fan, I watched religiously until I was like 17 I think, I've been to a WWE Live show and two house shows, travelled to a meet and great.

15. True Crime is my all time favourite genre, it's so interesting to learn about, although I do have a soft spot for anything with a strong female role.

16. I'm not much of a summer girl, never have been, my favourite seasons are definitely autumn and winter, if I can wear jumpers and boots I'm happy.

17. Speaking of seasons, my favourite weather when I'm outside is chilly but sunny, but when I'm inside I love it when it's raining, hailing and thunderstorms, it's so cosy especially if I've got the fire on and movies.

18. I have a mug addiction. I literally can't leave a cute mug in a store, I have to buy it.. I always have to have a mini mug clear out every couple of months but I get so attached to them it's difficult to let go of them. 

19. I love tea, but my favourite is probably decaf breakfast tea or nearly all fruit infused teas, I even bought a tea organiser so I had more room to store more tea.

20. I've never been big on horror movies, but I do like some of the classics like Friday the 13th, Halloween and A Nightmare On Elm Street.

21. Learning about Astrology and Star Signs is probably my favourite thing ever, if you know me and have a basic understanding of astrology you'll know that I am 100% your typical Cancer.

22. My favourite place to get away and recharge is Cromer, Norfolk. It was my favourite place as a child and there's something about sitting on the beach next to the pier listening to the waves that is so incredibly calming.. Plus I found two places that do vegan food so it's practically perfect.

23. I take Christmas very seriously, I usually start buying Christmas presents by June at the latest, which most people see as insane but I see it as extremely organised. I already have my Christmas cards ready to write and my list of who I need to write cards for.

24. My favourite meal ever has got to be a Vegan burger and sweet potato fries, pasta is a close second though.

25. I much prefer watching series over movies, I have to be in the right mood to watch a movie but I'm always in the mood to watch series after series. Netflix, Now TV and Prime Video are my besties.

I hope this has given you an insight into me and my life. I'd love to hear some facts about you in the comments below, let's get to know each other!
