I honestly cannot believe that it is already December and this is the final favourites post of the year. Time has simply flown by this year! We do, of course, have a slight Christmas theme this month, and I really loved all the things I have to show you.
I have finally read Outlander by Diana Gabaldon, well the first book anyway. I have to admit that this book did take me quite a long time to read (a good few weeks!) but I really loved every second of it. The books incorporates some of my favourite things - history, a good romance and a slight fantasy element. So so good and I cannot thank my friend enough for recommending that I read this book. It's a new favourite of mine and I seriously cannot wait to read the next books. (Also: Jamie Fraser. Swooning.)
If you don't know by now, I absolutely adore Downton Abbey and I would honestly say that it is my favourite TV show. Combined with my love of movie/TV soundtracks I have really been enjoying the Downton Abbey soundtrack this month. I'm not sure why this month particularly, because I bought the CD a while ago now but it has been my go to for blog posts and when I go to sleep. It makes me feel so nostalgic and happy whenever I listen to it, so I couldn't help but share.
Sanity has the best deals on at the moment so when I saw three movies for $20 I couldn't resist having a tiny peak at what was available. I ended up buying Christmas movies (and admittedly not watching two of them) but I finally have a copy of Love Actually and I really really love this movie. It's definitely slightly ridiculous at times but it is such a feel good movie and I adore watching it around Christmas time, as is tradition, with my Mum.
