My favourite mod collection as of (10-08-2013)
This is my current list of favourite mods on the workshop, which I consider to be *MUST HAVE*.
This collection is purely based on my opinion. however I have played with them and through them and I give these mods my approval seal.
This collection will mostly possess gameplay enhancements, because in my opinion the gameplay is the most important part of any game, because it is what you spend most of your time doing (unless your organizing your loot around the house xD).
For visual/graphics enchantments I only use the the official High Resolution Patch, the 2k Textures Mod and Climates of Tamriel which i will provide the links in the end of this description.

I hope whoever uses this collection appreciates it as much as I do!
I will also put some links here of mods you should use from the Skyrim Nexus website:

Skyrim Nexus Website - (be patient with the website if it's taking too long, there have been problems with the servers)
Immersive Armors -
Immersive Weapons -

-50% Cost for Wards
Created by Psychic
With this mod you will spell the 3 levels of Wards with minus 50% magicka.
