My Favourite Things is a precursor to TC’s Treasures. Starting in November 2016, all My Favourite Things posts will be known as TC’s Treasures.
It’s a new month, so that means it’s another round of “My Favourite Things” hosted by the lovely Raisa and Eirene. This month’s theme will not be about The Hobbit (I am still obsessed with them, by the way XD). In fact, I don’t think this month will really have a theme. It will be more random, haha!
Raisa introduced me to Font Awesome, and it is really awesome. I love how this is easy to use, and the icons you choose to use are re-sizeable to whatever sizes you need, unlike image icons that require you to re-size them in PhotoShop or something. Granted, they don’t have all the brand icons I need, but I was able to work around it :D
I’ve become fond of coasters in the last few months. I started off with these cheap-o-coasters before I upgraded to this one (the one pictured above) from The Coastal. I really like its minimalistic design, but I find them to not be heavy enough. These still come off the table when I pick up my mugs or cups, so I decided that I needed to get some new ones . . .
I chose to get these from the Painted Lily shop. I’d previously ordered from them to get a couple people gifts, so I got to see just how heavy they were, and they are heavy. These will be perfect for what I need a coaster to do, and they are so pretty! I do recommend this shop for handmade coasters. The designs are just gorgeous!
My last “favourite” is Thirty-One Gifts. They are a direct-seller company that focuses on bags and other household goods. One of my bosses is a consultant, and through her, I get to see some of these awesome products. I have a couple of things from them already, but I will have more things from them soon since I just did a big order with them. Their stuff is pricey, but I take advantage of their specials. In December, for example, they had a flash sale that had a weekender bag marked down from $60 to $20. Another way to get discount is to spend $35 and you can get the specials for a discounted price. My next month “Favourite Things” will most likely be about Thirty-One and what I ordered, so keep an eye out for that! I can’t wait to show you my stash :D
