STORIES | Two gay and fabulous shows you should be watching

Okay, I know I just recommended some TV shows to you last week but you’ll have to forgive me because I’m about to encourage you to watch two more series. And these ones you need to watch right now.

You see, my British crime dramas recommendation post had been sitting in my drafts folder since December. I love those shows, don’t get me wrong, but I never felt any sense of urgency when recommending them because their seasons were finished. Those were more of “binge these whenever” recommendations.

These two shows though? They’re the here and now. They’re what’s new on Netflix and what’s currently showing on TV. And if you haven’t started watching them yet, you’re seriously missing out. 

(And if you are watching these already, please, let’s chat! I’d love to know who you favorite queens are or which of the Fab Five you most need in your life. Let’s compare notes!)

STORIES | My top three favorite British crime dramas.

STORIES | My top three favorite British crime dramas.

It’s no secret that moving back to the UK has been on my mind a lot this past year. Thinking about it has seeped into everything I do, even to the point that when browsing Netflix for shows to watch I find myself leaning towards British programs. (I even started watching The Great British Bake Off at one point, much to Dave’s disappointment.) It’s been a fun change to my usual consumption of American reality competitions and dark comedies (which I still love), and I find myself pleasantly surprised by how much I have enjoyed these shows in genres I don’t usually watch.

So today I thought I’d highlight three British crime dramas that I’ve watched and loved on Netflix and I look forward to either celebrating the shows with you in the comments or hearing what other shows you’d recommend!

Of course, a small note that I think is important to mention: I may be biased in liking these shows. Not only are they British programs which automatically win for me right now, they also all feature male leads with high cheekbones. And that may not seem like a big deal to some, but as I mentioned in my Fantastic Beasts post, I am a sucker for men with good cheekbones.

LIFE | March’s diary doodles: Dogs, family, and my visa application.

LIFE | March’s diary doodles: Dogs, family, and my visa application.

It’s been a while since my last collection of diary doodles (similarly titled December’s diary doodles: dogs, family, and Christmas) but here we are once again. A smattering of autobiographical images for your viewing pleasure.

For those who aren’t familiar with my diary doodles, they are the illustrations I make capturing moments in my life. You know, diaries in doodle form. They’re not always super exciting and are rarely as funny as I want them to be, but they’re special to me because they’re honest representations of my life.

And this month’s collection of diary doodles are especially interesting (in my opinion, at least) because not only do they capture what’s been going on life-wise for me, they also highlight some exploration I have done within my artwork. From dabbling in comic formats to varying line weights in my inking to exploring with shapes and color, things are a bit all over the place this month. I’d love to know what ones you like the most!

STORIES | Like high school dramas? Watch these three series now.

STORIES | Like high school dramas? Watch these three series now.

Now, I don’t generally seek out high school series to watch on TV or Netflix. They’re like contemporary reads for me: they’re okay, just not my cup of tea. But out of the ones I have attempted to watch over the years, these are the few that I’ve managed to watch from beginning to end. The best of the best from a person who has no real qualifications to determine such a thing.

You should watch them.
