My Fave TV Shows Of 2018


There have been some amazing TV shows this year, but these ones below, are the ones that I've really looked forward to each week. They may contain spoilers, so beware!

It was really difficult to pick which shows to pick for this list, as I've watched over 20 different shows this year, so here are the ones that made it to to top. May it be because I laughed, cried, cheered - or all three, these are the best of 2018.
Station 19
I found this show back at Easter, and not long before it finished airing. A spin off to Grey's Anatomy, this has been a welcome relief from Scandal, which ended last season. We've got to follow the firefighters, and a police officer through some really good episodes, and that ending to season one, was too amazing for words!

9-1-1
A new show this year from the creators of Glee, this follows the lives of the 118 firestation members, as well as the police, and the 911 emergency center in Los Angeles. I binged the first season during the summer, and fell in love with instantly. Also helps that Oliver Stark, who plays Buck, is a nice piece of eye candy! It's been both stressful, edge-of-seat tense, and funny, in such a way that I've not seen on TV before.
Legends Of Tomorrow
Probably one of the best CW/Arrowverse shows, this show never fails to make my day when I watch it. Quite the underdog compared to it's Arrowverse counterparts, this show is full of fun, laughter, and also some sad moments too. #RIPFirestorm!! I've been enjoying this new season a lot too, especially with the new addition of Constantine to the crew, and the magical creatures that have been showing up.

The Flash
This beats out Arrow and Supergirl, down to the laughs this show brings me. Mainly due to Cisco. Can't say I've loved the many versions of Harrison Wells we've had over the show's few seasons - actually, I'm really bored of the other world versions of him, and though I love the actor, please just write him out for good, or bring Earth 2 Harry back! Loving this new season with the addition of Barry and Iris's daughter Nora, who's come to see them from the future!
Chicago PD/Fire/Med
Couldn't pick a front runner for the #OneChicago franchise, so they all made the cut! PD is the one I get most excited about, but that's down to me having a huge crush on Kevin Atwater actor, LaRoyce Hawkins. *heart eyes*
All three have had amazing seasons this year, and the new fall seasons have been just as impressive. I'm still reeling over Olinsky's death, Gabby leaving the firehouse, and the fact that Med has lost Dr Sarah Reese to another hospital - due to the actress leaving. Can't wait to see how the rest of each season plays out.
RuPaul's Drag Race
Let's recap this one... We had All Stars 3, immediately followed by Season 10 the week after All Stars ended, and in a few days time, All Stars 4 is going to be airing! That's 7 months of Drag Race this year! I've been loving this show for ages now, but this year I feel it it at the height of recognition it deserves. And yes, I've been listening to the remix top 4 raps a lot this year.

What TV shows have you enjoyed the most this year and why? Let me know! Hope you have a great day and keep safe :)

My Fave Songs Of 2018


Music is a big part of my life. I will have it blaring as soon as I get up, and the second I'm home from work. I even hum/sing when I'm working, just to pass time. Nothing makes me happier than a catchy tune to have a dance and sing-along too.

There have been a handful this year that I have really liked, plus a recently re-released one! Here they all are in a handy little playlist for you to check them out yourselves.


If you like any of the songs above, let me know in the comments, as I'm trying to spread some of these about! What songs would make it to your top 10 for the year? Let me know! Hope you have a great day and keep safe :)

November 2018 Faves


Another month gone, and we're getting even closer to the end of the year, as well as Christmas coming at us quickly. Save a thought for those of us who work in retail and have been listening to festive music for the last 2 weeks, and already hate every Christmas song going! No, Elton John, I do not want to step into Christmas with you!!

Anyway, hope you're all well, and here are my monthly faves!

Song
I am obsessed with this song! I've listened to it 61 times on the day that I wrote this post up - had it on repeat without noticing for the first 20 odd plays and then just left it on! I'm pretty sure I have the lyrics down now. I love this video for it too, as it's filled with 90's nostalgia.


TV Show
It is the season of the returning shows, and it's been grand so far! I only started watching this show a month ago, but already addicted and caught up with season 2! 9-1-1 is such a good show, and I love the cast. I started watching it because Angela Bassett was starring in it, but then got to see the other cast, and can safely say I'm in love with Oliver Stark now too, haha!

Film
I have been working my way through some movie sets this month, and watched all the Jurassic Park and World films, just before the new one was released on DVD. I've watched that for the second time, and loved it just as much as the first time. I like that we've got away from the islands at last, and now have dinos in the wild, plus a human clone!

Picture
Fave picture of the month is this one of a visit to Folkestone during the month. My sister, her boyfriend, and I were all super ill when we went with my Dad, but fresh air helps right? Nope! Took this by the harbour, before we headed on a long walk into the town. It was nice to get out of the house and not be working, so enjoyed myself a lot.

How has your November been, and what are your faves from the categories above? Let me know! Hope you have a great day and keep safe :)
