Stream Into 2015 with Staples Canada #StreamInto2015

11th November 2014


If you know me personally, you know that I have a weird obsession with school supplies. And notebooks. And other things, but let’s just stick with the reason why I love Staples. Although I haven’t been in school for many, many years, I spend an obscene amount of time at Staples, looking at all the shiny things. It’s one of my happy places.

Not weird at all.

This will explain my joy of working with Staples this month, although our focus is on another one of my joys – movies.

We are a movie family – we tend to stick close to home, and when we have free time and especially during the weekend, we watch movies. Quite often, we will use a streaming media player to watch movies – super convenient and easy for the everyone in the family to use.

roku-3Staples Canada sent us a ROKU 3 Streaming Media Player (yes they sell more than just school supplies!) so that we could participate in their fun Stream Into 2015 campaign which is all about bringing family together during the holiday season, sharing holiday movie classics, and testing out some great media streamers for the holidays. We’re going to be spending this month watching many, many holiday movies using our new Roku 3 and by the end of the month, we’re going to choose our ULTIMATE HOLIDAY MOVIE.

Of course it’s only fair if I share the Staples love, and thanks to the lovely people at Staples, I have TWO Roku 3 Streaming Media Players to give away to TWO lucky people!!! To enter, check out the Rafflecopter below – I’ll be back on November 28th to reveal our Ultimate Holiday Movie and pick my two Roku 3 winners!!!

This giveaway is open to CANADIANS ONLY. GOOD LUCK!

Sex Tape: The Movie #BedroomSpice

10th July 2014


In honour of the soon to be released SEX TAPE: The Movie, I’m compelled to share my favourite sexy time mishap that the husband and I had years ago. Thankfully, no video proof exists, although honestly, I ‘d watch it daily if there was. I’ve never laughed so hard in my life.

When the husband and I were first married, we headed to Niagara Falls for a weekend away. Of course, we had a room with the cheesy heart shaped jacuzzi tub in the corner of the room. After a day of playing tourist, we came back to the room for some sexy sexy jacuzzi tub times. This is where I admit I had never been in a jacuzzi tub before that, so I added bubbles. Fast forward to us being in the tub and suddenly noticing how high the bubbles were getting, coincidentally as they started pouring out the sides, onto the carpet. I’ll be clear, if I were to say that it was the Niagara Falls of bubbles, I would not be over exaggerating. Cue the husband jumping out of the tub, and attempting to carry armfuls of bubbles into the bathroom and into the standup shower, while naked and laughing hysterically. I was laughing so hard I couldn’t get out of the tub, watching him go back and forth over and over, covered in bubbles. Pure gold I tell you.

Sony’s Sex Tape: The Movie, starring Cameron Diaz and Jason Segel arrives in theatres July 18. Sony Pictures also offered a Sex Tape gift basket (includes sex dice, girl’s booty shorts and guy’s boxers, as well as mini posters) to give away to one winner. Please enter the giveaway below and note that you’re welcome to enter this giveaway on any of the participating sites, but you can only win once. The giveaway is open to Canadian residents (not including Quebec residents).

Check out the Sex Tape: The Movie Facebook page for more info and videos.

Her – DVD/BluRay Giveaway

30th June 2014


Her stars Joaquin Phoenix (in a pornstache) and Scarlett Johansson’s voice in a beautifully bizarre film, which coincidentally won the 2014 Oscar for Best Original Screenplay (written and directed by Spike Jonze).

It’s super creative and strange and different and perfectly cast – I can’t imagine anyone else as Theodore but Joaquin Phoenix. Theodore makes his living writing personal letters for other people. He’s sad and heartbroken over the end of his relationship. His life changes when he purchases a new operating system that “promises to be an intuitive and unique entity in its own right. Upon initiating it, he is delighted to meet Samantha (Johansson), who is insightful, sensitive and funny. As her needs and desires grow in tandem with his own, their friendship deepens into an eventual love for each other.”

I watched it last week and I’m still thinking about this movie. It’s a bizarre one, that’s for sure.

Want to win a DVD/BluRay copy of your own? Enter below! Open to Canadian residents only.

Get Healthy With Yoplait Source Greek Yogurt And A LuluLemon Giveaway

24th April 2013

Have you heard about the new Yoplait Source Greek Yogurt yet??

Truth be told, if I could pick anything to eat for breakfast, I’d have to admit I would eat Eggs Benny because there is just nothing better. However, health-wise, it’s just not something you can eat every day, unfortunately. So, my second choice is always yogurt and fruit – plain yogurt with fresh fruit. Love it. Same goes with Greek yogurt – I like it and the fact that it’s actually good for you is just a bonus.

There is actually a new Greek yogurt on the market now by Yoplait called Yoplait Source Greek Yogurt. It has twice the protein of their regular Source yogurt, has no added sugar and is only 50 calories per serving. It comes in several flavors including Vanilla, Strawberry, Cherry, Peach, Strawberry/Peach, Strawberry/Blueberry, Blueberry/Raspberry, and Vanilla Lemon. So, yum to that.

When it comes to getting healthy, obviously you need to do more than eat yogurt. Funny enough, through my constant reading/researching of how to get my old self back, I’ve learned many a thing about how to make it happen. Putting it into practice is a whole other animal, but I can tell you that these steps make a great start:

  • Drink WATER as your main beverage – ditch the juice and pop and crap that are just empty calories. Water with fresh lemon is the best thing to de-bloat that body of yours too.
  • Veggies are your friend – eat them every day, every meal.
  • Cut out all sugar, processed, junk and fast food.
  • Eat protein at every meal.
  • Eat fresh fruit but not unlimited because of the sugar.
  • Exercise every single day, in some capacity. Punching in the air while watching reality tv doesn’t count.

Are you looking to get healthy this year? Let me get you started with some yummy yogurt and something cute from Lululemon!!


I’m giving away some coupons to try out the new Yoplait Source Greek Yogurt for yourself, AND a $100 LuluLemon gift card to one lucky winner!!!

To enter, please leave a comment below with your best tip for how to get/stay healthy and what works for you!! That’s it – one comment!

Parental Guidance Movie – DVD Giveaway

28th March 2013

Parental Guidance movie

Parental Guidance the movie is now out on DVD!

Billy Crystal, Bette Midler and Marisa Tomei prove that laughter is relative in this hilarious comedy that’s fun for the whole family! Old-school grandparents Artie (Crystal) and Diane (Midler) get more than they bargained for when they get stuck babysitting their type-A daughter’s (Tomei) overprotected kids. But things go from hectic to hysterical when Artie realizes the kids are running the house with their newfangled technology. By playing by his own rules, which include sugary snacks, old fashioned games and tough love, Artie manages to outsmart the kids and achieve the impossible- bring the family closer together!
If only the grandparents had had a bit of a social media guide to help them along. Here you go, grandparents – some basics to get you started!


  • The iPhone: The iPhone is an Apple branded smartphone that made its market debut in 2007 and runs on the “iOS” or Apple operating system. The iPhone features include: web browsing, video playback and recording, voice calling, instant messaging and more. 
  • “LOL”: An acronym for laughing out loud or laugh out loud, “LOL”.
  • FTW!: A guy like Arnie should be about as familiar with this commonly used internet acronym as he is with who ‘s in the running for the World Series. “FTW” stands for ‘for the win’ and is typically used in conversations revolving around sports or debate. 
  • StumbleUpon: For a Grandfather, to stumble upon something is not usually a good thing but StumbleUpon is a site that virtually archives the best of everything anyone has ever stumbled upon on the internet. So, if grandpa happens upon a really interesting article, he can share it on StumbleUpon and allow others to check it out! 
  • Facebook: Facebook is the largest online social network with over 1 billion users; the site is one of the best ways to connect with friends and family. Additionally, most businesses and entertainment personalities maintain accounts on the site and often host promotions for fans and consumers on Facebook. Grandpa might want to subscribe to his favorite baseball team’s page in order to stay updated on their latest events and news!
  • Twitter: Twitter is one of the ten most visited sites on the internet, all that’s need to join the site is an email address and password.  Site users interact with one another through “tweets,” or 140 character messages, and are permitted to “follow” other users who they find interesting; it is important to note that Twitter’s subscribers include the Fresno Grizzlies!
  • Meetup: The Deckers may find that their new social media savvy motivates them to expand their social groups. Meetup.com is just the site to help with that endeavor and will allow Grandma and Grandpa to meet up with grandparents from all walks of life who share their interests.  For Arnie that might mean reaching out to the Fresno baseball Meetup group! All that’s needed to join this site is an active email address for registration.
I’m giving away a Blu-ray/DVD copy of the Parental Guidance movie! To enter, please leave me a comment below.
For an additional entry, please tweet the following once and leave a comment below saying that you did:

Lysol Canada Decorate Your Hand Soap Dispenser Contest

20th March 2013

Have you heard about the cute Lysol Canada contest going on right now? They’re giving away great prizes too – mini tablets valued at $329 Cdn every day for 21 days!!

The Lysol Canada Decorate Your Hand Dispenser Contest asks you to decorate their very popular No Touch hand soap system with your kids and make it your own. Here’s what to do:

  • Decorate a Lysol No Touch hand soap system in an original and creative way with the kids. Have fun with it!
  • Make sure not to use any trademarked logos or images in your design, or it will not qualify!!
  • Remember not to cover the sensor at the front of the system.
  • Upload your photo of your creation to the Lysol Canada FB page here. You’ll have to like the page to be able to do so.
  • Please, make sure to check out all the rules and regulations here before you get started.

The kids and I also decided to decorate on our own version here at home. We decided to use our new Sharpies and we decided to go the “designer route” and use pattern. After no persuasion on my part (ahem), we decided to go with a zig zag pattern and we love how it turned out. Check it out.

Make sure to check out the gallery on the Lysol FB page because they’re are so many great ideas so far – much more crafty than our attempt!

Ice Age Continental Drift – Giveaway

4th December 2012

Sub-zero heroes Manny, Diego, and Sid embark upon a high-seas adventure after their continent is set adrift.  Using an iceberg as a ship, they encounter sea creatures and battle pirates as they try to reunite with their herd.  In the wake of these upheavals, Sid reunites with his cantankerous Granny, and the herd encounters a ragtag menagerie of seafaring pirates determined to stop them from returning home.

The special 3D format for Blu-ray provides the highest quality images out of any other 3D format on the market. It comes in the specific format known as “format packing” in which the original content does not lose resolution when viewed in 3D. This means that you are watching the clearest image possible every single time you watch the movie. The special formats allow you to watch the movie in your living room and have it look just as it would on the big screen. This is great for quiet family movie nights as well as large gatherings and slumber parties.

A convenient feature of the special formats is that they make your viewing experience mobile. It is now possible to watch Ice Age: Continental Drift anywhere you go! This is perfect to take in the car for long family road trips. A small yet important benefit to the Digital Download format is that it allows you to de-clutter your home by not having a physical DVD or Blu-ray copy to store. Once the movie is on your computer, you may watch it on multiple platforms if you have a gaming console such as the Play Station 3 or a media streamers box such as Apple TV. Additionally, you can contribute to living a green lifestyle by “going digital” which the Ice Age gang would fully appreciate.

The Extraordinary Family Adventure Floats to Blu-ray™ 3D, Blu-ray™ and DVD on December 11! 

For your chance to win a copy of Ice Age: Continental Drift on Blu-ray AND a very cute Ice Age ice cube tray, leave me a comment below telling me who your favorite character is in the Ice Age movies.

For an Additional Entry, become a fan of my Facebook page or tell me if you already are (leave a comment below).


– Open to U.S. & Canadian residents (no p.o. boxes please)!

– Winner will be chosen using Random.org

– Make sure to leave a Twitter handle and/or email so I can contact you if you win

– Giveaway runs from Tuesday, December 4th to Tuesday December 11, 2012.
