My favorite things giveaway!

A few of my favorite things: Jane Austen, cute socks, and Amazon Prime. Did I mention there's a giveaway, too?

“Raindrops on roses and whiskers on kittens…” Oh, sorry. Didn’t mean to get all Julie Andrews on you, but today I’m sharing a few of my favorite things. And, there’s a giveaway!

Three of my favorite things…

1. Jane Austen

I discovered Jane Austen when I was 12 or 13, and I have been addicted to her books ever since. My favorite book changes with the years, but lately, it’s her last work, Persuasion. It’s a novel about second chances and making choices those around you might not understand.

2. Cute socks

If you follow me on Instagram, you probably know that I am a fan of whimsical socks. When people ask me what I want for my birthday or Christmas, I’m bound to mention socks. Some of my favorite places to find them are Target and Bath & Body Works.

3. Amazon Prime

When I need something, Amazon is one of the first places I check. I love that Amazon Prime means fast, free shipping. Plus, it feeds my occasional binge watching sprees.

  1. I share your affection for socks and have a drawer-full, which doesn’t stop me from getting more if they’re cute. Plus, socks are comfy!

  2. My love for whimsical socks is alive and well too, Ashley. Mine are Star Wars themed, and I have a pair that look like football fields! I need to check out your collection on Instagram.

  3. I think most people’s favorite Austen work eventually ends up being Persuasion. I think because we all grow older and realize the need for second chances (and we all grow older. The number of times Anne is referred to as having “lost her bloom of youth” at the ancient age of what…29? Not even?)

    Though P&P i always in a class of its own and I shall always have a soft spot for Mansfield (yes, yes, I’m aware Fanny is a stick in the mud. Um, I identify with Fanny, lol).

    1. Go with Sense and Sensibility or Pride and Prejudice. Both books are very good and have made into movies πŸ™‚

  4. Okay, I’ll confess – I’ve only ever read Persuasion by Austen, BUT I really did love it and I want to read more. I actually wrote a whole research paper on the book.

    Omg, I’m obsessed with cute and fun socks. I find some great ones at Target too.

    I don’t have Amazon Prime but I think I need to invest, since I keep ordering from there and I’d LOVE to get fast, free shipping.

    Love this prize – thanks for doing the giveaway hop.

  5. I LOVE SOCKS! LOVEEEEE THEM!!!! My husband doesn’t come home and surprise me with flowers- he surprises me with socks and salmon – lol!

  6. I love that song, please go Julie Andrews on me anytime you want. I know you have a serious love affair with Jane Austen. Cute socks are so much fun. I’m a fan of Amazon Prime I’m so used to getting things within 24 to 48 hours but I have yet to watch anything on Amazon Prime. I really need to take advantage of this awesome service.

  7. I need these socks – so I entered!
    My favourite things right now are actually enjoying my hot coffee in my big arse Netflix mug without it going cold *shout out to school’s out for the summer*, spotify’s summer play list, and dollar store journals…the best!

  8. I love your favorite things! Jane Austen is awesome! I had no idea that there were whimsical socks like these. Love them! I’m with you on loving cute socks and Jane Austen and Prime as well! πŸ™‚

  9. My favorite things are spending time with my family, and my furry babies. I read, and I try to be crafty, and artistic.

  10. Cute socks are definitely on my favorites list. I also love Curly Hair Solutions Curl Keeper, Kari Gran Lip Whip, and my fabulous Instant Pot.
