{Chateau de Victoria's Favorite Things of 2011}

I don't know about you, but I am totally missing Oprah's Favorite Things segment! Those shows were by far some of the best. Now, unlike Oprah, I will not be giving away the things on my personal favorite list (lame, I know) but I figured I would still share them with you :-) And who knows, maybe one day I will have a billion dollars and be able to have incredible giveaways of my own...when I marry an heir to an oil company. I'll work on that, but back to the point of this post...I give you...

Chateau de Victoria's Favorite Things of 2011!

1. Tazo Zen Green Tea

2. Romeo & Oakley

The most precious boys a girl could love!

14. My Blog

I love blog writing!

15. Finding Personal Happiness

There are so many favorite things to choose from! I knew from the beginning that 2011 was going to be full of excitement; a year of making big decisions, taking risks and following my heart. While I can't exactly put it into pictures, I am quite proud of what I have accomplished this year and the strength I have shown through it all. Luckily, I still have one more month of surprises (and more favorite things?) to look forward to!

And while tangible things can be fun, I think Steve Jobs said it best...

"My favorite things in life don't cost any money. It's really clear that the most precious resource we all have is time."

  1. I absolutely love those boots :) As well as the nail polish!

    Thanks for following me :)

  2. Your blog's beautiful! I especially like your header :)

  3. Congrats on meetings your savings goals! I know how hard that can be. And those really are killer boots.

    It hadn't hit me that there won't be a Favorite Things episode anymore... sad sad.

  4. Breanna - You MUST buy the boots! With a little research, you find them at a decent deal :-) And as far as OPI goes...I have collected so many polishes this year I was given an OPI nail polish rack for free...yikes!

  5. Kelsey - Thanks, it really is quite an accomplishment to save money...of course, I always feel I should be saving more! Love the boots, highly recommend!! No more Oprah...but at least she still lists her favorite things via her magazine :-)
