Hey there, happy Friday! Guess what I haven’t done in awhile? A Friday Favorites post! So today’s the day. I’m going to share with you some of my current favorites as well as some of my favorite posts that I’ve read from around blog land lately. Let’s get going!

Favorite Water Bottle:
First I want to start out by sharing something about myself that rarely ever happens. I rarely stick with the same product for a long period of time. Why? Well because if there are things about it that I don’t quite love, I keep looking. But really great products are soooo hard to find. My family often hears me say “did this company at no point actually try out this product for themselves?” How did this product past any sort of product testing I often wonder. I’m very tough and I have high expectations of things that cost me money to buy. But every once and awhile a really great product comes around and I want to tell the world about it. And when I use a product everyday for more than a year than it is definitely worth talking about AGAIN.
The particular product I’m referring to is my water bottle. I first told you about it a year ago in a Friday Favorites post. And I’m happy to report that I’m still using this same water bottle everyday a year later! Seriously that almost never happens. I love everything about this water glass water bottle especially the easy flip lid and easy pour spout. Anyone else have it?
What I’m Reading:
Since I’ve already admitted that I’m a picky girl I guess I should also admit that I’m just as picky about the books I read. For the longest time I got in a rut reading books that, in my opinion, were only worthy of 3 out of 5 stars on my Goodreads app. Apparently it takes a lot for me to give out more than a 3 star rating. I was so tired of reading 3 star books. And then I read Nicholas Sparks book, Every Breath. I actually gave that one a 5! And the one I just finished by Jodi Picoult called A Spark of Light, I gave a 4. Not too bad. Jodi’s book kept me intrigued because the story is told backwards by the hour which was just different and interesting.
As for non-fiction, I’m currently reading the new Marie Kondo book, Spark Joy. It’s the follow up book to her Life Changing Magic of Tidying Up. You know I had a complete change of heart about Marie Kondo’s techniques after watching her Netflix series which I wrote about in detail HERE. I’ll write more about this latest book once I’ve finished it.
Dollar Store Wire Baskets:
You know how much I love baskets of any kind but lately I’ve really been loving wire baskets. I’ve found two different types at Dollarama (dollar store here in Canada) in the last little while. This bigger one with a cut out on the front.
And this smaller gold one that I use as decor in my living room.
Here’s another option for those of you that might not have a Dollarama near you. It’s a pretty set of 4 baskets from Amazon that come in both bronze and rose gold.

Favorite Blog Links:
Okay now it’s time for some of my favorite links that I think you might like too. First is this awesome free printable quote from Lost Bumblebee. Go print it out and put it somewhere you can see it for when you need a little reminder that every little bit COUNTS especially when it comes to decluttering and organizing.
Speaking of free printables and decluttering, you might like these free Marie Kondo checklist printables from Mommy Moment.
