Disney On Ice: Treasure Trove #Kingston #YGK

Disney On Ice is back in Kingston. We headed to the K-Rock Centre with the kids tonight to see the first showing of Disney On Ice: Treasure Trove. We’ve been to a couple other Disney On Ice shows in the past and the kids really enjoyed them. This time round the kids are older, but they still had a fun night out, especially my youngest. The show ran for approximately 90 minutes, with a 15 minute intermission. Several of the Disney movies were represented including Toy Story, Alice in Wonderland, Peter Pan, Lion King, Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, Aladdin, Little Mermaid, Tangled and The Princess Frog. Our favourite part of the show were all the great costumes, especially during the Aladdin, Alice in Wonderland and The Little Mermaid sections of the show. There were some great skating sequences as well, most notably during The Lion King, that really [Continue Reading…]

The Last Man On Earth Season One – Review and Giveaway

The Last Man on Earth is a hilarious and critically acclaimed series starring the adorably weird Will Forte as Phil Miller. The show is set in the year 2020 after a virus has killed off the entire population, with only one survivor: Phil. Phil drives across country looking for survivors but when he finds no one, he heads back to his hometown of Tucson, Arizona. Some of my favourite moments come from watching Phil amuse himself as the last living man, from drawing faces on all these different balls so he can have a some company at the local bar, to moving into the mansion of his choice and filling it with priceless art and artifacts. I’ll admit that when I first heard about the concept of this show, I had no idea how they could possibly pull of a show with one character. Of course the answer is they don’t, [Continue Reading…]

Happy Birthday Roald Dahl! #RoaldDahlMonth #Giveaway

I love weird and different. I love smart and entertaining. I LOVE funny and bizarre. This is a few of the reasons I LOVE ROALD DAHL and his books.

There are so many wonderful messages in each of his books, they’re just impossible not to love. September is his birthday month, so Penguin Kids has declared it Roald Dahl Month in celebration. I’m all for it!

Back to School with SportChek And a Giveaway

We are officially back in school and already in the third week, with September quickly coming to an end. Yikes. Don’t get me wrong I LOVE the fall, but I HATE the winter, so slow down already. I don’t know about you but I approached things differently with back to school this year. Instead of just going out and buying the kids a whole bunch of new clothes and things before school started, I picked up only the necessities like school supplies and indoor shoes, and figured I’d pick up the rest as needed. I picked up a couple of pairs of shoes for each of the kids as well, but quickly realized the dude would require some really good running shoes for gym. Enter SportChek! They contacted me about checking out their site and picking out some shoes for the kids, which was very timely so I was so thankful about that. [Continue Reading…]

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…]
