hello everyone! how are you doing? what have you been up to? i’ve been watching (what feels like) a TON of tv recently.
when i was a pre-teen i was never much into television; you could always find me sat in front of the computer engrossed in a youtube video. not much has changed now in my older years and my subscription box will always take precedence over tv. now that i work in the influencer marketing space i tend to spend more time (and time at work) looking at youtube/twitter/instagram so when i’m home i need something else to do. so… here is what i have been watching:
this is an *extremely* new watch for me. i tend to not be able to watch shows that require much thought (as you will see from the remainder of this list), but i started this show with my sister one night and she has forced me to remain hooked! if you’ve never heard of the series it is essentially a dramatized version of queen elizabeth the second’s life starting right before her father passes away.
the first episode my sister and i were googling like crazy trying to figure out different references, but now by the third and fourth episode we have a better understanding of the british monarch. if you’re into dramatic history then for sure check out this show! the production quality is amazing and the acting is impeccable, and surprisingly a lot of the major events are accurate (at least from what we have googled).
friends. a classic. i am so far behind, i know, but i absolutely love watching friends at night before i go to bed. it is the perfect piece of fluff television and it has a million seasons on netflix so it feels like you will never run out of entertainment!
3. The Bold Type
this is a very new addition to my stash of shows but i was too impressed not to include it. the bold type is a brand new show on freeform (previously abc family) and follows three friends at a cosmo type magazine. this show feeds my devil wears prada needs while having a more humorous spin. the first two episodes impressed me and i cannot wait for the rest of the season!
4. Pretty Little Liars
next is my precious pll. pretty little liars has come to a close in the last month and i couldn’t write this post without mentioning it. this was the only show i have religiously followed through its entire life and even though it seemed like they were stretching it in the last few seasons, im really sad its over.
i don’t think this is a show i would recommend to watch on netflix just because it is so long and repetitive but if you’ve been with it from the start you know my heartache over it finally ending.
what shows are you watching??
i’m really excited to see life sentence with lucy hale and i want to get into more shows so tweet me or comment on my instagram what shows you’re into!

I am a big fan of The Crown, and totally agree that it is impeccably acted and so visually satisfying. According to the critics they cannot find any fault with the accuracy of the history!
