Weleda Evening Primrose Facial Care Products

I was sent a lovely package from Weleda recently to try out their Evening Primrose line, which is said to be wonderful and firming for mature skin. Yes, I’m at the “mature skin” age sadly – I’m trying NOT to focus on that part. It happens to the best of us. I’ve never tried Weleda products before so I was really looking forward to seeing how they compare to what I’ve used in the past. I had a chance to look at their site to get to know the brand and I was extremely impressed by their dedication to this certified natural skin care line. They have a wonderful philosophy and their mission “isn’t just to recognize beauty. Our mission is to actively cultivate beauty.” I LOVE THAT. Their products, made in Switzerland and Germany, are all natural. They include no synthetic preservatives, no synthetic fragrances, no synthetic chemicals, and no animal testing (including their [Continue Reading…]

There’s always great new content on Netflix every month and Netflix has added some new kids programming this summer that your kids will love. First up, DINOTRUX! Dinotrux is an original Netflix series from Dreamworks! It’s a show where half dinosaurs, half construction vehicles exist and work together to build a better world and to fight against D-Structs. It’s super cute, geared towards the younger set and all ten episodes of Season One are streaming now. Dragons: Race to the Edge If you’re a fan of the How to Train Your Dragon franchise, you’ll love their new Netflix Original, Dreamworks series Dragons: Race to the Edge. It’s funny and we love that it’s voiced by the actors from the movie as well. The first season has ten episodes and they’re perfect for enjoying with the entire family. Project Mc2 This one is my eight year old daughter’s favourite new Netflix [Continue Reading…]

Back to School with Mabel’s Labels and a Giveaway #BTS

On Monday, I blogged about Back to School and posted a giveaway involving school supplies. Today, it’s all about labels – MABEL’S LABELS. I’ve blogged about Mabel’s several times in the past because they’re a company that I love to talk about and endorse. They offer a product that is dependable, pretty, affordable and 100% guaranteed. Their labels are dishwasher safe, microwave safe and waterproof, so they can be adhered to everything from clothing to school supplies, to rain boots, and everything in between. I adhere them at the beginning of each school year to the kids’ shoes and boots, their knapsacks, notebooks and pencil cases, their lunch paraphernalia and all their outerwear. And every end of school year, every single label is still attached. Worth every penny! Have you ever ordered from Mabel’s Labels? Their website is super easy to use. Once you’ve chosen the labels you want, you enter the NAME, you choose [Continue Reading…]

My Experience Using RapidLash Enhancing Serum #RapidLash

This is part two of a two part blog post where I tried the RapidLash Eyebrow & Eyelash Enhancing Serum. The first post was here, and it’s been about eight weeks since that initial post. A little about how the product works first. You apply the RapidLash to the upper lash line of your clean, make-up free eye. You apply it every night before bed and you should apply it at least eight weeks to get the best results. It’s also safe to use if you are a contact lens wearer, which I am. I’m not a huge fan of putting things anywhere near my eyeballs because my eyes tend to get irritated very easily, so I was a little bit worried that I’d have some kind of reaction or irritation to the product, but thankfully I did not. I found it very light and easy to use, and the serum [Continue Reading…]

Back to School with Crayola And a Giveaway #BTS

It’s that time of year again – Back to School! (Insert my children’s moaning and groaning here). The BEST part about Back to School time for me, is buying all the school supplies. I find that the kids start to get excited about getting organized and ready for school when we pick up the school supplies – at least the little one does. Personally, I love it so much that I often buy too much so that I can hide some for myself. I make sure to pick up all the basics and some of the fun stuff too, and when it comes to the fun stuff, I always choose Crayola products. From the first package of crayons I bought as a new mom for my little guy, until now, with two kids who love to paint and draw and create, I have always preferred Crayola. It’s just one of those brands that [Continue Reading…]

My Must Read Book List for AUGUST #Books

If you know me at all, you know that I am a book addict. NOTHING makes me happier than books. Nothing. Not even handbags, or lattes, or even my boyfriend, Colin Firth. Give me a pile of books to read and I’m a happy girl. I have this recurring daydream that I’m like the Tom Hanks character in The Terminal, where he’s trapped in an airport terminal for weeks, except I’m trapped in a bookstore for weeks, and eventually have to be forcibly removed, because I don’t actually want to leave. I love this daydream. Not weird at all. Totally Normal. Anyway, as a book addict I have a pile of books always waiting for me, both on my iPad and my bedside table, so I thought I would share what’s on my must read list for this month. WHO DO YOU LOVE – JENNIFER WEINER This is what I’m currently reading, [Continue Reading…]

LostMy.Name Personalized Books #Books #Review

Personalized books have come a LONG way, baby. Most of the ones I’ve seen haven’t been very impressive, looking both cheesy and of poor quality. But then I discovered LostMy.Name personalized books. LostMy.Name books are special. They’re a softcover book, made with a lovely, heavy quality paper that gives them a substantial feel. The illustrations are absolutely glorious and really work with the story to make this book unique. The story is about a little girl or boy who loses their name and goes on an adventure to find it, letter by letter. I adore this book – it’s a great story, and any little person would love it too. I think a personalized gift makes a perfect gift, and one this special will be a winner. The site says these are ideal for two – six year olds, but my eight year old loves hers too. The ordering process is one of the best things about these books – it is just [Continue Reading…]

What To Do in the 1000 Islands Gananoque #familytravel #attractionsontario

On Tuesday, I blogged about going to 1000 Islands Gananoque with the family for a short getaway. When visiting the area, you’ll find that there are so many things to do even though it’s a small town. There’s countless beautiful, picturesque photo opps around the town, from the Town Hall to the Waterfront area, to the lovely neighbourhoods filled with gorgeous, huge heritage homes. For this trip, we also checked out the Arthur Child Heritage Museum, The Haunted Walk Experience and the 1000 Island Boat Cruise. Arthur Child Heritage Museum The Arthur Child Heritage Museum is located on the waterfront, in Downtown Gananoque. It’s housed in a two storey heritage building that was originally the main station for the Thousand Islands Railway, until passenger service ended in 1962. The museum features the culture and natural history of the 1000 islands. It is run by a non-profit organization, features a seasonal collection and a gift shop on the main [Continue Reading…]
