P!NK Makes The Most Beautiful Cover Issue And I Have Something To Say About It

When you look at the most recent cover of People Magazine’s Most Beautiful issue I can’t help but notice that it is different then the issues that came before it. It’s evolved, the middle boasts an imperfect accomplished singer Pink along side her adorable children – vastly odd considering the previous ones were adorned by Photoshopped versions of thought of celebrities who stood alone and graced the covers like ornaments to the type set along side them. Pink is mom to her two kids Jameson Moon, 15 months, and Willow Sage, 6½,…

Staying Clean With pureWash Pro – 10 Months Later

  Disclosure: I received a pureWash Pro in exchange for my honest opinion. As always, all opinions on lil-sugar.ca are my own.        As many of you already know, I fell in love with the pureWash Pro as soon as I heard of the concept. Fast forward 10 months after receiving this product initially and I am even more in love than I was before – if that’s even possible. Not only are my clothes feeling fresh and clean, they are giving me the piece of mind I…

Simple Mother’s Day Planter DIY

Let’s face it, birthdays are for elaborate gifts and mother’s day is for the thoughtful and sometimes cheesy gifts our kids put a lot of time into and we cherish them forever. By the time you reach my age you run out of ideas to get your mom something truly special and you start to make up plans to give gifts from the grand children she will equally love – just because it’s from them. This year my sister and I made my mom the most adorable (and practical) planter…

Chickpea Vegan Meringue Recipe

With Easter around the corner and SO many reasons to indulge, I thought it would be best to have some ‘healthy’ alternative sweets in my home so I don’t over indulge on the bad stuff. In my world, nothing is better than a meringue or pavlova – nothing stands a chance to its sweet, crunchy texture and yummy goodness – nothing BUT this copycat version using….are you ready…CHICKPEAS!! Who would have thought this bland yellowish seed would produce a white creamy dessert? Well, get ready because it does just that…

Easy Low Carb Cloud Bread

I have had a love-hate relationship with making cloud bread. Seems in the past every time I attempted to make these ‘low carb’ buns they flopped and failed —until now! My research and patience have paid off and I now know how easy these adorable little pieces of heaven can be. Next time I make them I will try larger loafs and/or small chip like versions, but these buns are delish the way they are none the less. The kids even loved having them with deli meat and a little…

Valentine, I Will Never Forget You <3 {Tile Review & Giveaway}

DISCLAIMER: I received product from Tile as compensation for this review. As always reviews on lil-sugar.ca are my own honest opinion.  February is the color of love, everywhere you turn you will see hearts, bows and a whole lot of pink and red. It is the month most lovers look forward to, showering their loved ones with chocolate surprises and roses and indulging in all of the above is totally allowed any day until the 14th (I won’t tell). If you are anything like I am, finding that perfect gift is…

Frothy Bath Bomb DIY

Over the weekend the boys and I experimented a little with our traditional bath bomb recipe and came up with an alternative that was too irresistible not to share. Apparently we’ve gone through a phase whereby each and every bath time experience must be accompanied by a bubbling treat – of-course I am also guilty of loving bath bombs too so I can totally relate to the boys needs when it comes to making bath time fun. The only downfall is that the store-bought versions are often costly and sometimes…

A Fresh Tap Into The Dark Side Of Childhood

If your children are anything like mine then they have already acquired a deep sense of dark humour before the age of 11. In our home, my oldest son loves to read and his most favourite novels of the past 2 years have been a series of thirteen children’s novels by Lemony Snicket, the pen name of American author Daniel Handler. Yes, when he was first introduced to this book series we were a little worried at the subject manner and horror factor of it all but it seems that these…

North, Saint, Welcome CHICAGO! Why Kim and Kanye’s Name Choices Are Valid

If you’ve been living under a rock the last 24 hours, then you’ve probably missed a HUGE announcement! Kim and Kanye have had their third child via surrogate Monday. A little girl who is no doubt cute as a button, weighing 7 lbs. 6 oz – the family is growing! Apparently, Kim was in the delivery room during the birth, and is doing a lot of skin to skin bonding with the little one. The couple already has 4-year-old North, and 2-year-old Saint and are no strangers to the unique…
