Keep The Kids Happy While Travelling Over The Holidays

  We are a family that travels quite often, both in cars and on planes and the Holidays usually have us doing that more often. Christmas consists of travel to visit relatives 2 hours away, and car rides are usually long and ‘boring’ for my kids aged 8 and 11. To be honest, the travel time seems like it doubles for me too – the constant whining, and questions of when we will get there make 2 hours seem like 8! In fact, 1 in 5 Canadian parents say one of their…

Is Ed Westwick Guilty Or Being Used?

It seems that rape allegations are popping up everywhere and all over social media in particular. Most recently, actress Krista Cohen has accused Ed Westwick of raping her while she visited his home with her then boyfriend 3 years ago. This accusation in particular has me wondering if this is a cry for real help or if it is just a way of creating some ‘fandom’ for the beautiful actress. Admittedly, Ed Westwick is the epidome of charm and darkness – something about him just screams sexiness. Could be because…

Jessica Simpson’s Daughter In The Spotlight – For What Exactly?

Every year my family dresses up as a unit for Halloween – we pick a theme and follow it out as best as we can to become the characters realistically, or as realistic as possible. From face makeup, to costumes, whatever it takes to become that person for the night – even if it means using a lil hair paint to do the trick. Seems Jessica Simpson is now the target of social bashing for doing just that, for tinting her daughters hair for the purpose of portraying Belle in…

Curious Children – The Benefits Of Technology {Contest Too}

If your children are anything like mine, they ask over a million (sometimes more) questions a day and on average expect some sort of realistic explanation to things you have never heard of. Am I right? Google has changed my life, or so to say… Seems we can never get through a show or a simple task without me turning to my trusted friend for advice. As you may already know, Google DOES have all the answers! From simple dinner ideas, to Halloween costumes to those tired and tested questions…

Take The Stress Out Of Party Planning With This Netflix Hack

Welcome to the year 2017 where parents go over and beyond to keep their littles happy and content but doing whatever it takes to put a smile on their tiny faces. Welcome to a time whereby happiness is measured in items, and monetary gifts that in the end get tossed in a corner. I’m not saying I don’t enjoy making my own little people happy, but birthdays in our home have been simplified for the simple reason that my own kids do not look at the effort we put into…

Strawberry Peach Mini Galette Recipe

Yes, I must admit that back to school means a little bit of mom-petition on my part. I love challenging myself to creative lunch and snack time ideas when it comes to the children’s lunches. Seems I always make tradtitional mini apple pies for their snacks, but this year I decided to make something a little more colourful and a lot more fun to look at. These mini-galettes are too adorable and freeze really well for those snacks that need little or no effort to put together. I keep a…

The Knee Boot Fashion Flop – When Plus Sized Is NOT The Average Woman

    I assume there are women out there who have stopped and looked at the gorgeous plus sized models and thought “but they have great legs”….if you are a woman with larger calves, maybe you can relate to this.   Winter is almost upon us and every single year I find myself looking for a cute pair knee boots, rain boots or whatever to keep my legs warm and look stylish for the upcoming colder weather. Every year I am disappointed by the lack of variety on the market…

Back To School With Staples!

A few more days and the kids are back to school (already) and it seems like there is never enough time to finish their lengthy list of demands before it happens. Since I am a one stop shop kinda girl, I always try to find the best bang for my buck while lessening the travel time because to be quite frank, my kids suck in the car! Staples is just that- a place to full fill all of your back to school needs, product lists, and still leave time for…
