My Old Self Came Shining Back Through #ONatural

Jennifer Banks - After

It kicked in yesterday, and I have no idea where it came from. You see, for MONTHS I have been a bit down in the dumps.  Not quite my usual happy self.  I found it hard to get motivated, very little energy, and to be perfectly honest - I was uber lazy.  Was it winter - I doubt it. We, like much of Canada have had a fairly easy season.  I think I just had too much time on my hands, and was feeling bored with what was going on around me. But … [Read more...]

Share the Love of Reading this February with Happy Meal Books from McDonald’s

InstagramCapture_ae9357a3-3b65-47c9-bb5d-eeddbc246e6f

As a child I loved to curl up in a corner with a comfy blanket and my favourite book. At school, the end of day bell would ring and I wouldn’t notice… while the other children were rushing to get out the door, I was still lost in the book I was reading. The apple hasn’t fallen far from the tree.  Both William and Ben learned to read at a young age, and have fallen in love with the world that is created when they devote themselves to a great … [Read more...]

Garnier Whole Blends

Garnier box

I was deep into the shenanigans of the holidays when this arrived on my doorstep. A beautiful package filled with a new hair product and instructions to enjoy a little me time.  Ha! Me time! That’s not something I indulge in often enough. But hey, if someone is telling me to go enjoy a hot bath in the middle of the day, I’m going listen to them.  I made my way to my claw foot tub for some afternoon R & R.   As soon as I opened … [Read more...]

It's only a number... and with Olay, this girl is staying ageless. But I have to admit - when my kids and I are driving down the road and "Ice Ice Baby" comes on.. I belt out every.single.word. Yes - I am an 80's baby and a 'tween of the … [Read more...]

I Resolve To Relax, Grow… and Watch Netflix #StreamTeam #NewYearNewView

Planet

I have been noted to say. "I don't watch TV... I don't have time." To be completely honest - I don't.  But there is a certain feeling one gets when they put work on the back burner long enough to enjoy a great movie, or binge watch their favourite show.  Lately - I've been doing just that.  I pick up my knitting ( no, it's not just for old people) and I grab my iPad, and I curl up next to the fire place.  Usually it's The Good Wife I'm … [Read more...]

A New Kind of Banking – Equitable Bank Launches EQ Bank

EQ_Bank_Logo

Ok, so I’m dating myself here, but when I was a kid, my mom would stand in line at the bank to cash her paycheck.  Before she went to the grocery store or to the mall, she would have to stop at the bank and get cash.  And if there wasn’t cash in her pocket – she’d use a credit card, in a click-click machine. Who else remembers click-clicks? There was no way to tell if she had credit available…they just trusted us. And on big purchases they had to … [Read more...]

The opinions on this blog are my own.   They're over... done... fanito.  For another year, the holidays are done.  I love the hype leading up to the, and the craziness of when there here... but there really is nothing better then the sigh let out when the holidays are … [Read more...]

We Didn’t Get Sick…

Immune Health

I feel like I'm jinxing us with the title of this post. Like I should be knocking on wood. Like tomorrow morning I'm going to wake up to a house full of sick - like what happened at my Mom's house over New Years.  But - It's been quite a few days now...almost enough to make me think we're in the clear... It was if I had been holding my breath for the last four days. I really ( and I mean REALLY) need my kids to be healthy enough to go … [Read more...]
