2017 was another one for the books! Inasmuch as I sometimes fail to appreciate the wonderful things we have access to, it really isn’t until you look back that you realize everything you had. I’m humbled to have experienced so many amazing moments in 2017 whether it be Movies, Music or Celebs. Come join me as I walk down memory lane. While there is nothing but chaos in the world, sometimes this is all we have as an escape!
While we like to think that 2017 was only an ‘okay’ year for Movies, looking back at it all, we actually are quite pleased with the caliber of Films we saw. The year certainly was not short on quality and while the subject matter wasn’t as heavy as some previous years, our heart was filled with love by incredibly beautiful stories like Call Me By Your Name or fascinating escapes into the minds of the infamous like I, Tonya and Molly’s Game. We were dazzled by the magnificence of The Greatest Showman and don’t think we’ve ever laughed as hard as seeing the severely-underrated Girls Trip!

Don’t forget to check-out the Team’s Top Tens of 2017 right here.
While 2017 was a solid year for Film, I felt it was inversely a spotty year for Pop Music and believe me, I love Pop. I struggled to compile ten of my favourites reflecting the year.
As much as I wanted to dislike Taylor Swift‘s reputation Album, I found myself loving it more immensely the more I held back. And who’d ever have thought I’d have loved Harry Styles’ debut Disc as much as I did? It ranks still as my favourite Album of 2017 led by Sign of the Times. In addition to this, we loved discovering the OST to The Greatest Showman late in the year, which is track after track of infectious perfection. Dua Lipa also is an uncovered gem and we can’t wait for more from this stunning beauty.

Every year we tell ourselves that we’re ready to call it a day with all the Celeb Selfies but as the years pass, we find there’s always new heroes to meet. 2017 was a standout getting to meet several names I’ve longed to meet for many years now. This was the year I finally met Angelina, partied with Jamie Dornan, finally selfied with one of our faves, Sally Hawkins. These are just some of my favourite Celeb moments and believe me, there were many to choose from.
