2012 Favourites...

Hey everyone

So I am keeping up with my tradition (can it be called a tradition if this is only the second year I've done it? I think so) of blogging about my favourites for the year - so here's my 2012 Favourites!
I've come to love this service - I've discovered so many great shows and films through it! The only down-side is how into these shows I get - I literally watched the whole first series of 'The Body of Proof' in two days #sorryimnotsorry
 I was torn between this and  netflix so I may have to give netflix a try in the new year and compare the two :P 

2. Yankee Candles
I became obsessed with Yankee Candles this year - they all smell so incredibly awesome and the scent lingers for ages! This Lotus Water one is my absolute fave :)

3. Starbucks
I fell in love with Starbucks this year - I'm completely addicted to the  mocha cookie crumble frapp - I can't wait for it to come back again! 

4. iPhotography
I discovered that I actually really liked photography and editing my photos using my iPod - particularly instagram. It amazes me how good some of the photos turn out!

5. Norts
I caved upon the recommendation of the preppy blogging community this summer and purchased some norts - I literally lived in them for the four months of summer break - I honestly don't know how I lived without them!

6. Monograms
Again, I blame the preppy blogging community for my obsession with monograms - I just think they are so awesome and I literally want to monogram everything I own! I'm seriously thinking of investing in a monogramming machine :P

7. The Olympics
I really didn't expect to get so hooked on the Olympics as I did! I adored the opening ceremony - I thought it was so beautifully British and told such a perfect story of reflection of GB. 
8. My iPad
I find myself reaching for my iPad for all of my non-work related computing - I'm talking blogging, fb, twitter, tumblr, etc. I just find it so much more convenient than using my laptop - plus it helps to keep my laptop living a little longer haha :P Plus I love all the cute accessories you can get for it - if I lived in the US this Kate Spade Case would be mine in a heartbeat!

9. OPI Nail Polishes
So last year was the first year I really started wearing nail polish so my collection has obviously grown considerably in a year! I found my favourite brand was OPI and so I've purchased quite a few of their colours in a year  - it makes me feel a tad guilty that this whole jar is nearly all OPI 

10. Princess
Losing my other doggy was a definite low point this year but bring this little puppy into our home has definitely brightened up my life. She's just so funny and cute! I love watching her learn new things and experiencing things for the first time.

and of course I had to add - This Blog! I cannot believe that I stuck with blogging for over a year now - I love how much of a part of my life it has become - how much I enjoy it and actually how much I need it to keep me sane! I love how I can look back on my posts and re-live my life again. 

It surprises me so much that people actually read my little blog about my life so thank you all so much!

What were your favourite things this year?

P.S. Here's {last years} Favourites if you fancy giving that a read :)
