Full Mobile Coverage While Living In The ‘Burbs’ -TELUS Rocks! {Giveaway}

I was first introduced to TELUS mobile when I was a teenager, I remember buying into the brand because of its fresh appearance, snazzy ads and really good prices. Who would have known that after years of service with other mobile networks I would become a TELUS customer once again – just under different terms. Now somewhat grown-up I stand on the other side of the fence when I say that the most important thing to me when it comes to cell phone usage is the ability to stay connected.…

Bridging The Gap Between Teen’s and Parents

Seems that having a 10 year old has certainly made me think about the future ahead when it comes to communication – especially lately. I’ve been lucky so far to have a child who is super open and honest about the ups and downs he’s been experiencing in his little life circle thus far. What happens in a few years when that circle grows and his own thoughts on life evolve further? Will he be as honest as he has always been, ¬†am I being naive to think that he’s…

Neutralizing Gender Equality In The Toy World – When Will Barbie Get It?

I was compelled to reason with a mother’s emotional post recently and I think that it should be shared with good reason to urge toy companies to rethink the way they market toys today. Scrolling though mommy groups on Facebook, I often do not stop and read the lengthy ones, but this one was different because quite simply it was written almost as if I myself had written it. The authors words and heart felt emotion is something I have related to for the last 10 years of my first…

Why This Tory Burch Ad Was Removed From Social Media

It is apparent that in the world of fashion, many fashion brands have touched upon¬†cultural celebration and appropriation both with success and not very successfully throughout the past few years. Leave it to social media to make it very well known when the brand showcases something that may seem ‘racist’ – without a doubt with every good intention in mind. Tory Burch’s latest campaign “#ToryStory: An American Roadtrip” featured Poppy Delevingne and other Caucasian¬†models singing and dancing to the popular song “Juju On That Beat’ and boy did they get…

A Good Man Walks Among Strong Women – Lessons For My Sons

Studies have shown that girls as young as six are influenced by gender stereotypes, and that role models from the entertainment they chose can have a lasting effect.¬† What about the boys? Do gender stereotypes focused on female leads send the same influence to their male counterparts? Seems that the way we model women in the media DOES in fact have a big impact on our young sons too. While raising my own two boys I have noticed that a lot of their perceptions of women are not just made…

Spring Color Pop – Makeup Addict Lip Vinyl Review

When it comes my lips, it is pretty safe to say that I am a neutral color girl – meaning anything that resembles a color that is not the same color of my lips does not usually get put on them. I tend to stick to low-pigmented lip glosses and slightly tinted chap-sticks for the most part but I am super-excited to tell you about my newest color addition to my Spring makeup haul and it includes a hint of color that totally POPS! The newly launched makeupaddict.ca¬†is backed by…
