It’s September – the month of fresh starts. So, we’re here to help you make little changes or try new things that’ll leave you feeling On Top Of Your World. Here are 5 things to to get you started…
1. FIND A NEW BOXSET BINGE
You’ll have a little wait but Emma Stone and Jonah Hill will be starring in Netflix miniseries Maniac, landing on Netflix on Friday, 21st September. Based on a Norwegian TV series of the same name, the story follows a pair of troubled strangers as they embark on a clinical trial that promises to solve all their problems – with no side effects.
