After sharing my beauty favourites yesterday and Monday, I thought today would be a good day to share my non-beauty favourites from the last year. When I started my list for this post, I thought I would maybe have one or two things to talk about, but then the list started to rival my beauty favourites. I’m going to keep this post shorter than the others and only share my very favourites rather than a 10+ as I did in my other 2015 favourites.
The Last Man on Earth. This only became a favourite for me in the fall, but it’s such a good show that I couldn’t not talk about it in this post. This show is so well-written, and every episode makes me laugh harder. If you love Will Forte, then you need to watch this show. It’s amazing, and you will wonder why you waited so long to watch it.
The Desired Effect, Brandon Flowers. 2015 was a great year for music, and this album was one of my favourites that I still listen to on a regular basis. I shared a full review of this album back in May when it was released, which you can read here.
Coming Home, Leon Bridges. Another incredible album from 2015. I am obsessed with the retro sound of Bridges’s voice and I get excited every time I hear one of his songs on TV (which has been a lot this year). All his success last year is completely well-deserved, and I’m looking forward to seeing what he does in the future. I also shared a full review of this album, which you can read here.
Why Not Me? by Mindy Kaling. I sadly didn’t read much last year (I’m changing that this year), but of the few that I did read, this was my favourite. Like I said in my review, I loved how mature Kaling’s writing was, and that she was more vulnerable in what she shared in her previous book. It’s funny, heartwarming, and like everything that Kaling does, makes you feel like she’s really your best friend.
Ant-Man. I had many favourite movies from 2015, but I think this one surprised me the most by how good it was. I know some people who didn’t love it, or at least not as much as I did, but I think that speaks more to their sense of humour than the quality of the movie. When I found out that Adam McKay was one of the writers for this movie, it made complete sense to me why I loved it. The writing is a lovely marriage of Anchorman and Marvel, so what’s not to love?
The Jim Gaffigan Show. I talked about this in my summer non-beauty favourites post, and it’s still a favourite today. Jim Gaffigan is my favourite comedian of the moment, and this show was just brilliant. The episode where he’s on The Tonight Show was spot on (plus you know I love a good Jimmy cameo). I can’t wait for season two to air!
There are obviously many other things that I loved in 2015, but these were the cream of the crop for me. I’m looking forward to finding even more things to love in 2016!
