Re-watching: Third Watch

I was 15 when Third Watch premièred in 1999 and my love for it hasn’t wavered.

Who wouldn’t love a show about FDNY and NYPD on the same block patrolling together. The 55 precinct and Firehouse 55. Camelot as it was dubbed. Police, Fire and Paramedics, patrolling the streets of New York between 3pm and 11pm – the “Third Watch”.

Created by Christopher Chulack and John Wells of E.R., Southland and Shameless game, the show ran for 6 seasons and I am currently in the middle of season 3 of my re-watch. There were crossover episodes with E.R. and some amazing guest stars.What’s not to love.

My favourite characters have not changed. Whilst I do love all the characters (some a little less than others) my all time favourites would have to be Faith Yokas and Maurice Boscorelli. The guy was a former Army Ranger before joining the police force, so cool!

I was and still am and will forever be a Faith & Bosco shipper. They had such good chemistry. It was a weird mix of brother and sister annoyance/love that I believe turned into just plain good old fashioned love. However neither of them really admitted it in a romantic way but you could see it was there. 100% and nobody can convince me otherwise.

On a side note, I’ve figured out these two are the reason I love Daryl and Carol so much on The Walking Dead. It’s that same kind of chemistry. I love it!!!

Carlos was another character that I just loved. The dude was so damn weird and full of himself but deep down he was so sweet. Fun to watch.

Honestly I pretty much loved every character so I won’t go describing them all. I’d be here forever. Seriously the cast was amazing!!! From beginning to end the characters who came and went. They were all fantastic.

The episodes they did regarding 9/11 were so tastefully done. A very hard subject matter to do but when you’re focusing on first responders in the city where this happened it’s kind of hard not to include it.

If you haven’t already watched thisshow I really do recommend it. It has drama, comedy, action and heart.

Buffy Appreciation Day 

  
Just some Buffy appreciation coming at you for the 19 Year anniversary of the pilot episode. Wow 19 years! I was 13 when it premiered and still remember sitting down to watch it all excited. I even remember watching the movie when I was younger than that. 

I love this show so much, it is my all time favourite TV show.  It taught me so much. Such a great role model. So much I could write about this show, that is for another day and another post. For now let’s just enjoy some cool pics.

   
    
    
    
   
And let’s give it for Buffy, Sarah Michelle Gellar

  
And we mustn’t forget where it all started, the original Buffy, Kristy Swanson

To Cut Or Not To Cut?

A couple of months ago I cut my very long hair into a nice shoulder grazing Lob. It has since grown out a little bit and I catch a reflection of myself in the mirror and I utter a sentence I have never before said whilst having short hair, I uttered “It’s too long it needs a cut”. My hair is now sitting just the tiniest bit below my shoulders. What on earth has happened to me. Me, the girl who is obsessed with long hair. Oh well as they say “When in Rome”. This is what my hair looked like after getting it cut…

While it is hard to tell from these images but my hair is naturally very very thick and coarse and also very curly and wavy. I get ringlets underneath and the top is wavy. No brushing when it’s like that or it frizzes out like a lion’s mane. I had my hair thinned a bit when I had this done (which I am normally not a fan of) so it could be a little bit easier for me to style. See I am not one of those girls who can ‘do’ their hair every morning. Make up yes, hair no. Give me a brush and I’m good to go. However I have been very good at straightening it after every wash so it is manageable for me. Also the time spent with the straightener has been cut down to 20 minutes!! Remarkable!

*side note the lovely curls you can see were styled by my talented best friend who has mastered the art of cool waves with a straightener. I am still only able to do Farrah flicks.

So now I want to go shorter. There are a few looks I have been debating over and I just cannot decide. So I will put the pics up (none of which are my own) and I will let the wonderful world of the internet help me decide. Throw it out there and see what I get.

My first look is Rachel McAdams. Now it is very short (especially at the back) and it will be a lot of maintenance for me but I gotta say I’m really enjoying this look.  By the way best dressed at the SAG Awards and the Critics Choice Awards!! These dresses are to die for!!!

Next up is Jennifer Lopez. I love the layers around the face for this look and when it is wavy it actually looks a bit like mine.

Jenna Dewan-Tatum had recently cut her hair into a lob then decided to go shorter into a bob. These are the wonderful results.

Kim Kardashian West and Khloe Kardashian. Kim actually has very similar hair texture to mine so I have kind of already got this cut. It’s still beautiful though. Khloe’s hair is just on point right now. Slay!

 

Kate Hudson (who can do no style wrong) has a great new Lob. I love this look I’m just not sure if it’s too long for me at the moment. Again in what universe is this too long. I’m losing it. In all seriousness though those beachy waves are perfection! Teach me how master!!

Finally I have Ellen Pompeo. Her hair cut of late has been absolutely to die for!! The colour is also quite stunning. Seriously can Grey’s Anatomy hurry up and come back on yet?!

So in conclusion, if there any hairdressers out there or any of my readers reading this I would greatly appreciate your opinions. I need some help before I book my next appointment. Don’t even get me started on what colour to choose!

Thanks xoxo
