And to the lovely readers of this post:

I hope your 2015 was filled with good books, movies, music, friends, and family. I've always enjoyed doing extravagant year-end lists, but this is all I felt like doing this year. It's not much, is it? That said, I wrote it because I want to share my interests and pass them on, because that's how I find out about all the wonderful things in my life.
I look at these Favourites lists as these small whispered promises of something good; something great.

Much love and cheers to the coming year,

I'd love to hear what your favourites are in the comments below. xo
