Frozen Fever Books – HairStyles and Party Book #Giveaway

28th August 2015

frozen-fever

A little while back I reviewed this super cute EDDA USA title, The Ultimate Disney Party Book, full of great ideas for having a Disney themed party. I was recently sent two more titles from EDDA USA – Frozen Fever Party Book and Frozen Fever Hairstyles.

FROZEN FEVER PARTY BOOK

This book has 22 fun ideas for creating your very own Frozen Fever party. The book is divided into several sections: Invitations, Decorations, Cakes & Drinks, Games and Party Favors. Each section has several ideas that are simple to re-create for the perfect Frozen Fever celebration. There is also a section that includes some of the templates used for the invitations.

frozen-fever-party

Some of my favourite ideas are the Spring in a Bottle Invitation – so pretty and simple, yet such a great idea for an invite. The Sunflower Table Decoration – my little eight year old artist picked this one as one of her favourites too. I also really love Anna’s Birthday Cake – this is the most complicated thing in the book, but it’s super gorgeous.

FROZEN FEVER HAIRSTYLES

Want to re-create Anna and Elsa’s hairstyles? This book will definitely help you do just that. In it you will find 28 hairstyles to choose from. The first section of the book is called BraidSchool and it teaches you the basics that you will need in order to be able to do the more difficult hairstyles. The traditional braid, french braid, dutch braid, fishtail braid and french fishtail braid are all outlined up front. The book is then divided into Twists and Braids, Updos and Buns, and Waves and Ponytails.

Each hairstyle is photographed with step-by-step instructions and a final photograph that shows what it should like when it’s done. From simple to intricate, each hairstyle is super pretty and an especially handy reference for changing things up.

Both of these Frozen Fever themed books are perfect for celebrating all things Frozen. Full of gorgeous photos, they’re a great gift idea for yourself or any Frozen Fever fan. Want your own set? I’m giving away a copy of each book to ONE lucky winner!! Please enter below – the giveaway is open to Canadian residents and will run until Friday, September 4th, 2015.

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

14th August 2015

mabels-labels-logo

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!

mabels-labels

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 your DESIGN and then choose your FONT, and that’s it. You can see what the product will look like as you enter your info, so you can make any changes you like. You add it to the cart and you’re ready to go. I ordered THE STYLISH SCHOLARS COMBO for my 11 year old son, and with the free shipping, it arrived quickly and within a week. So you still have time to order your labels before school starts!!

Want to win a STYLISH SCHOLARS COMBO? This combo is great because it will appeal to all ages with their sleek design (12 different design options and 2 font options).

Back to School with Crayola And a Giveaway #BTS

11th August 2015

Crayola-logo

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 people trust for quality, including myself – they call it the Crayola Difference.

This is why I was very excited to become part of the Crayola blogger program – me and the brood are big fans. Recently, they sent us a box of goodies for back to school, and we were super excited to check out all their new products and those products that are new to us. Our little eight year old artist got right to it immediately and picked her four favourite products – the Glitter markers, Metallic markers, Watercolour pencils and the scented PowerLines Markers.

So to celebrate Back to School (YES I’m celebrating – Mommy needs some alone time!), I have a fab Crayola giveaway!! One lucky winner will win a great $50 package that includes:

Mabels Labels Limited Edition Camp Label Pack GIVEAWAY

18th May 2015

mables-labels-logo

I love Mabel’s Labels.

I discovered them when my son was little and started losing everything at school and I needed a better solution than just writing his name on the tags of his clothing and shoes. Of course that would only last until the item was washed anyway. But then I found Mabel’s Labels!

I’ve used these labels for both kids now, for 5+ years and they’re the best label on the market. They are dishwasher, microwave and laundry safe. They are also UV resistant and waterproof. That’s what makes these a fantastic label option for camp. Mabel’s Labels Limited Edition Camp Label Pack includes everything you need to get the kids ready for camp.

The pack includes:

  • 10 Personalized Name Stickers
  • 24 Mini Custom Name Stickers
  • 50 Tag Mates Stick On Clothing Labels
  • 8 Custom Shoe Stickers
  • 2 Personalized Bag Tags
  • 5 super cute postcards for writing home (*only while supplies last*)

mabels-labels-camp-labels

On the newly re-designed website (love how user-friendly it is now), you can choose from a solid or multicolour design, countless adorable icons and four different fonts. The Limited Edition Camp Label pack sells for $39.95 with free shipping.

Of course, Mabel’s sells labels for so much more than just camp – from household, to hockey gear, to allergy alert labels, you can get all your label needs met with Mabel’s Labels. You can find Mabel’s on Facebook, Twitter and Pinterest.

Want to win your own Limited Edition Camp Label Pack?? Enter below to win – this giveaway is open to Canadians only, and will run until May 28, 2015. Good luck!

Legoland Discovery Centre Toronto – Giveaway

1st May 2015

lego-discovery-centre-logo

My family and I were recently invited to check out the Legoland Discovery Centre Toronto (located in Vaughan Mills), and with two big Lego fans in the house, we were excited to finally check it out.

The first thing you’ll see when you arrive is a Lego store (well played Lego people) filled with every set you could possibly imagine, if not every set actually available, including that wall with all the bulk pieces that my children love. Perhaps you’ll want to put the child blinders on until you get into the attraction. Just a thought.

lego-discovery-centre

Once inside, you’re invited to stand in front of a green screen to take some pics, which will be available for purchase later on inside. The kids were into it, so we agreed and all the employees were really nice and great with the kids so it was fun to watch them get into it. We then moved into a small area for a Lego Factory Tour where you can see how Lego is made and also get on a scale that will tell you what your body weight equals in Lego bricks.

Next up was the Kingdom Quest Laser Ride where we climbed onto a moving “chariot” and using the attached laser guns, shot at various targets throughout the ride. You can see each person’s score and our eight year old kicked everyone’s butt by far. Little do you know that your picture is taken during the ride and you have the option to purchase that as well. Right after the ride exit, is where you will see the pics taken at the green screen and the one taken during the ride.

lego-miniland-toronto

Up next was MINILAND, my favourite, where you can see a Lego reproduction of some of the great landmarks, including the CN Tower. It really is fantastic to see the incredible detail in the replicas, created with over 1.5 million bricks! The exhibit moves from day to night as well – it’s quite fantastic.

After MINILAND, the Discovery Centre opens up into a large room that houses the rest of the attraction. Including the Lego Racers Build & Test (where you can build your own racecar and race them on ramps), the Lego 4D Cinema, Merlin’s Apprentice (a pedal ride), Lego Fire Academy and Construction site (a play area for the younger set), a cafe and birthday rooms.

legoland-toronto

My son’s favourite part of the attraction was the Lego Star Wars MINILAND Model Display. It had several displays of Star Wars scenes and battles, some interactive, others involving sound and light effects. It was very well done, and according to the 11 year old, very, very cool.

Overall, the kids had fun at the Legoland Discovery Centre, and especially enjoyed the MINILAND exhibits, the laser ride and the pedal ride. I do think a lot of the attraction is geared towards younger kids, so if you have little ones (age 2 and younger are free), you might want to consider annual passes.

legoland-toronto

Have you been to the Legoland Discovery Centre in Toronto yet? Want to? I’m giving away a FAMILY PASS (four tickets) to one lucky winner! Please enter below – the giveaway is open to Canadian residents, but please keep in mind that you’ll want to live close enough to be able to get there, or if you’re planning a trip to Toronto soon. The giveaway will run until Thursday, May 14th and the winner will be chosen using Random.org. GOOD LUCK!!

Night at the Museum: Secret of the Tomb – GIVEAWAY!

16th March 2015

night-at-the-museum-secret-of-the-tomb-dvdI’m a big fan of the Night at the Museum movies – loved the first one, adored the second. Both of the kids also really love them and we’ve watched them a ridiculous amount of times. I can’t help it – I love museums, and the thought of art and statues coming to life at night is just too fun not to enjoy.

Then I heard there would be a third and I thought, really? I wasn’t going to watch it at all but we watched it the other night with the kids, and with very low expectations, we really loved it. It was hilarious and fun and a perfect way to end the series.

This time around Larry Daley (Ben Stiller) heads to London to “save the magic that brings the museum exhibits to life.”  Many of the beloved characters of the past two movies are back including Jedediah Smith, Octavius, Ahkmenrah, and Theodore Roosevelt. We also get introduced to some new characters, including my family’s personal favourites played by Rebel Wilson and Ben Stiller. It’s a really fun film and perfect for family movie night!!

The DVD combo pack has some great features including deleted and extended scenes, a gag reel and some great behind-the-scenes featurettes.

I’m giving away a Blu-ray/DVD combo pack of Night at the Museum: Secret of the Tomb! The giveaway will run until March 24, 2015 and is open to Canadian Residents only. Good Luck!!

Make Your Own Movie Moment With K-Y #giveaway

11th February 2015

my-boyfriend-colin-firthThere’s that moment in the movie Love Actually where Colin Firth (my Boyfriend and Special Valentine) goes to Portugal to find the girl he fell in love with. He walks into the restaurant where she’s a waitress, with her family and entire village following him. He then proceeds to speak to her in Portuguese, which he learned specifically so he could speak to her and ask her to marry him.

And then I died. Sigh.

It is one of my favourite movie moments because it’s sooooo romantic and sweet and if I close my eyes really tight, I successfully imagine myself as the lovely Portuguese girl who wins Colin Firth and his hotness in the end. A girl can dream/hallucinate.

With Valentine’s Day just a few days away, it’s the perfect time (although really, ANY TIME is the perfect time) to make your own romantic moments. Of course, during those sexy times, there are certain things that make the sexy times even sexier – candles, music, designer handbags, another person and some Yours + Mine.

ky-yours-mineInsert lubricant segue here.

K-Y Yours + Mine is a couples lubricant that offers a delightful experience. They are applied individually but when mixed together, you experience heat and tingling and delightful times two. There’s no strong scent in either product, they’re not sticky or too thick, and they have long-lasting effects. They’re definitely a fun addition to a sexy time experience.

In honour of Valentine’s Day, I have a great prize pack for one lucky winner. The prize includes a $50 Cineplex gift card, a $50 Cara Foods (Montana’s, Kelsey’s etc) gift card, and your own K-Y Yours + Mine couple lubricant to enjoy your own special moment.

Enter below using Rafflecopter, letting me know one of your favourite romantic movie moments. The giveaway is open to Canadian residents only and ends Wednesday, February 18, 2015.

Good Luck and Happy Valentine’s Day.
