Friday Favorites: #10

The first edition of Friday Favorites is all over the place hahaha

First off, I left the zipper open on my clutch that I was using and lost my drivers license + library cards but somehow my debit + credit cards stayed in. No idea how that happened!  I was really annoyed when I lost my library card because I have had that same number for 12 years and now I have to get a new one and change my cpl app log in and my desktop saved stuff.  Buttttt then I saw that I could pick whatever colour of card I wanted and that made me happy.  I love mustard yellow so picked this one.  So much nicer than the ugly blue one I used to have!

I love garlic bread so much but unfortunately all the butter on it makes me super sick so I can't ever really eat it so I was happy to have discovered a healthier and tastier than the stuff you can buy premade at your local grocery store and it takes less than 5 minutes from beginning to end. First, you must have a baguette or french bread.  I usually buy the day of or night before otherwise it goes rock hard and not edible.  I cut in like shown above and spread some olive oil over it.  I put it in the oven on broil at whatever the default temperature is and leave it about a minute or until lightly browned. You can flip it and cook another minute or so but I don't do that.  I pull it out of the oven and then i take a garlic clove and rub it all over the hot bread and then serve.  It is delicious and perfect for pasta, salads and soups.  You can thank me later :)

I bought the tea canister from Winners in November or maybe early December and I love it so much.  I had been looking for a matching smaller sized sugar canister to put beside it but then I found the polka dot one at Home Sense and bought that instead that way it wasn't too matchy matchy and besides I can't resist a good polka dot print on anything hahaha.  

I saw a post on someone's instagram account that had a photo of their kids' room and they used these canvas bins from IKEA to store laundry and toys and I loved them.  So on my next visit there, I bought 2 of them since I needed a new one and Greg's was falling apart.  I love the striped pattern and they are the perfect size and for those like me who have to haul their laundry up and down flights of stairs, the handles are fantastic.  I recently just bought a second one for Greg who likes to keep his skiing clothes separate from his regular laundry mostly because I get mad when I come in our room and see all the laundry of his that I just picked up all over the floor because he was looking for stuff.  I suggested owning more clothes but he thought the $12 bin was a better solution haha.  They still have them so go check them out if you are looking for storage that looks cool and not like it belonged to your grandma unless that is your style haha.
