November Favorites

I have always wanted to do a «monthly favorites» type of post on this blog, but I kept putting it off some reason or the other — until this year. I will be doing one of these every month (or every two months) and I will include literally everything that I have loved or that has made me happy during that time, be it a film, a song, a book, a TV show or a item of clothing. These are my November favorites.

Favorite film: Avengers: Infinity War (2018)
This film is so good! I honestly did not expect it to be as good. I didn't know how it would work with so many characters, but the writers created a brilliant storyline and it all works together wonderfully. I cannot wait to the watch the next one.

Favorite TV show #1: Stranger Things (2016-)
I'm probably a bit late to the Stranger Things party, but I don't care. I finally watched the show in mid-November and I fell in love with it. It's SO GOOD! It's completely different than any other I have ever watched, and those kids! Can we please take a moment to appreciate how incredibly talented the kids are? Especially Noah Schnapp, who might just be the cutest thing ever.

If I were to pick a favorite character, I would say Will. Or maybe Mike. Or Steve. When I started watching the show, I hated Steve. I thought he was conceited and just completely full of himself. But he changed so much in season 2. For the better. I loved how protective he was over the kids and his relationship with Dustin is lovely. Oh, I love Hopper too. I think David Harbour is just wonderful. 

Favorite TV show #2: Deutschland 86 (2018)
I watched Deutschland 83 (2015) last year and I loved it, so I was really excited when I found out that they were making a sequel, which premiered in October. For those of you who have never heard of it, the show is basically a Cold War espionage thriller and it follows a young board patrol guard from East Germany who goes undercover in West Germany. Jonas Nay plays the lead role and he is just flawless.

Favorite song: «What She Wants» by A R I Z O N A 
I had never heard of this band or this song until Zachary Levi mentioned it on Instagram — and it became my favorite song throughout November. It has a great '80s vibe to it and I just really love it.

Favorite random item: My brand new VANS
This year for my 29th birthday (which was on November 2) I treated myself to a pair of black VANS (just like the ones in the picture) and I am IN LOVE with them. Honestly, they are probably the best thing I have ever bought in my life. They go with absolutely everything and they are SO comfortable! They were a bit expensive, I'm not going to lie, but I'm just so happy that I got them.

And this is it. These were the things that I loved in November. What were your November favorites?
