obsession... or just weird stuff

I haven't done a Favourite Tuesday in a while! I'm sure you were all devastated... so I decided to start it back up again. This time, it's actually a little different: our feature for the week is... Jane Austen!

I'm not certain if she's my all-time favourite author (I read too much to decide on one and only one) but she's definitely up there... as evidenced by the wealth of Jane Austen things we have lying around our house.

We start with the normal.

Books! Seriously, if you've never read Jane Austen, please go do so right now. (I would recommend starting with Northanger Abbey- my personal favourite- or Pride and Prejudice- the ultimate classic.)

DVDs! Again, please go watch one of these movies. They're all so sweet!

Now we move into things that are, perhaps, a little weirder.

A tea-towel! Even Jane Austen has to keep with the times and join in on the 'Keep Calm and..." craze.

Pins. And yes. Ok. I have worn them once or twice. (Usually I get many confused looks. However, that's a daily occurrence anyway.)

Here's me wearing one! (And, for those of you who've read my blog or comments on other blogs for a while, you'll know that I'm also obsessed with Desigual clothing... that is my Desigual skirt. I love it. Random doodles on clothing= amazing.) 

And, to finish it off, what is in my opinion (read: without a doubt) the oddest thing we own. (Possibly in our entire house... although some of my parents' clothes might fall into that category too. Reminder: Dad, Hawaiian shirts with hula dancers are NOT a good fashion choice.) 

A Jane Austen create-your-own-adventure book? Seriously? Yes, this is a little bizarre... but actually very fun. (Or maybe I'm the only one who thinks that.)

Are there any other Jane Austen fans out there? Do you have random things like this devoted to your own interest (whether it be Austen or something else) all over your house?


  1. wow , so many jane austen things <3

  2. That Jane Austen create your own adventure book looks INCREDIBLE!
    I really like Jane Austen too, though also not sure if I'd consider her my favourite author. The only book I really disliked of hers was Emma. I thought Emma was such annoying character- it took a lot of will to finish the book (plus, it was for college, so...).
    Great Tuesday Favourite post :)

    1. haha, it's actually pretty great xD it has crossover characters from all the books!
      really? i loved emma! the only one i didn't like was sense and sensibility, i found marianne quite aggravating with all her weeping :P

  3. Nice blog babe.

  4. AHH Desigual. My mom sent me a Desigual wallet in the mail for my birthday!

    Pride and Prejudice is one of those movies that I just watch over, and over, and over. I had a harder time getting through her books, but I read them a long time ago. I should try them again sometime.

    1. lucky! i'm so jealous :)

      me too... it's so sweet <3 & yeah, i do find that you really have to be in the right mood for them.

  5. Excuse me for a moment while I go and buy that pin. My jaw literally dropped when I saw that picture :D

    1. my friend bought it for me in england :D hopefully you can find some closer to home!

  6. You forgot to include the picture of your cat - named Darcy after, if you guessed Mr. Darcy of Pride and Prejudice, you were right and your guitar - named Tilney after Mr. Tilney in Northanger Abbey.

    1. haha, true :P didn't think of them!


Thank you for your comments! They make my day brighter, and I promise to answer every single one :)
