Fun Findings Friday #194

Oh hey, Friday! This week totally flew by, but despite being incredibly busy, I’m glad I was able to squeeze a much-needed happy hour outing in! I hope your first full week back to reality in the new year went well!

This weekend I’m looking forward to some major productivity at home. As in continuing my decluttering, organizing + cleaning (kind of feels like a neverending process but when you get in the mood to do it you have to embrace it) and getting ahead on blog content (lots of awesome travel stuff coming soon)! I also have some quality time on the books with my sisters, which is always the best!

ZocDoc

This first one is one I’ve actually been sitting on for a while. I totally thought I shared it when I first discovered it last year! ZocDoc is one of the most handy sites I’ve ever come across! For the longest time, I’ve been saying there needs to be an online scheduler or easy way to schedule doctor/dentist appointments other than playing phone tag with the scheduler over the phone.

Well that day has come my friends! Unfortunately not every doctor uses the site, but a lot of them do and it’s great! Simply put what type of doc you’re looking for, your insurance plan info + zip code in, and BOOM. A ton of options and you can pick the date/time that works best for you online!

Amazon Prime Video App + Marvelous Mrs. Maisel

It’s no secret I (and you guys too!) love binge watching shows. Netflix has been my go-to because let’s be real, their content is awesome, and with Apple TV, it’s just easy. Well part one of this fun find is that Amazon Prime Video now officially has an app on Apple TV, which makes watching Amazon things MUCH easier!

And on that note, (it’s a quick binge with 8 episodes), I highly recommend watching Amazon’s Marvelous Mrs. Maisel! The show is brought to you by the creator of Gilmore Girls, so you know it’s good (not to mention it’s winning all the awards this year)! It has all the great elements of a show – drama, comedy, and good music! Plus, it’s set in the 1950s, which is so much fun to watch!

Ed Sheeran + Andrea Bocelli Perform “Perfect”

If you haven’t seen/listened to Ed Sheeran’s collab with Italian singer Andrea Bocelli on “Perfect,” drop everything you’re doing right now. It’s absolutely incredible! And if you liked the original Ed Sheeran one, you’re going to love this one even more!

  • It’s funny I’ve never thought to mention how awesome ZocDoc is! I make all my dentist appointments through it and it’s so easy! Also I’m glad you loved the Marvelous Mrs. Maisel as much as I did. I haven’t met someone who doesn’t like it yet!

  • Okay the duet between Ed Sheeran and Andrea Bocelli has seriously been on repeat in our house. We love it.

    • Yaaaas! I can’t get enough of it either. SO GOOD!

  • Marvelous Mrs. Maisel was SO good! I saw the trial pilot before it was officially going to become a show, and I was crossing my fingers it would get picked – and it did! I binge-watched the entire thing in a day haha.

    • I believe it! I started it on like a Monday night otherwise I totally would’ve too! I’m excited to start watching more of Amazon’s shows now that they have an app on Apple TV!

  • I loveeee Marvelous Mrs. Maisel!! I’m sad that I gotta wait til season 2 to find out what happens next, haha–the dialogue in it is awesome! :]

  • I can’t even tell you how much I love that song sung by Ed Sheeran and Bocelli!!
