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…

Prepping For Back To School With A Permanent Impact

    Everyone that knows me also knows that I hate back to school, I miss my kids way too much to get excited about the whole thing and my anxiety almost always takes over this time of year. I like to find ways to communicate with them and remind my boys that I am with them even when I am not because the truth is, it makes a mama feel better – selfish I know but it gets me through those long school days. You name it, I have…

Sneaking In A Little Mommy Me Time

I am the queen of something that has now taken traction all over the internet as a real ‘thing’ and I am super proud to say that I have not only mastered it, but I do it on a daily basis too! It is noted as the “MomSneak” the mother of all sneaks, the ability to watch episodes upon episodes of Netflix films and shows while the children are around without them actually cluing into it. This new wave of honour has me super-excited that I am not alone in…

Sticking to Bedtime Routines During Summer Break

Yes, I am THAT Parent. The parent who puts their children to bed on time (most nights) even during the summer months. In our household the Summer doesn’t mean a free ticket to stay up late and do whatever you want whenever you want, it simply means better weather, more fun and more time spent with family. The only way I have found to keep the best of spirits when it comes to our children is by sticking to a solid sleep routine. Don’t get me wrong, I do admire…

Interactive Fun With Netflix!

School’s out for the summer and that means entertainment for parents around the clock! If your kids are anything like mine, they will need constant stimulation from the moment they wake up until the minute their tiny eyes shut- bring on 2 months of helicopter parenting and exhaustion. Can’t complain though, I look forward to it all year, as I can imagine you do too. Our favourite things to do are all outdoor activities however, the reality of it is that some days are just not sunny enough to spend…

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.…

Celebrity Mom Moments We Can All Relate To!

This mother’s day all I want is to relate to those beautiful people walking the malls, strolling with their kids to the park and those perfect women that we see in the spotlight.

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, Ā am I being naive to think that he’s…

Rockabye Rockers: The Gift That Keeps On Giving

Sometimes a product comes along and they simply are irresistible – I mean, function meets aesthetics. That’s what Rockabye Rockers have created. Adorable heirloom quality rockers in a variety of options that are simply adorable! Since so many of our friends are having babies, there is always the struggle of finding that perfect gift that will not only serve a purpose but can be passed on to siblings and cousins for years to come – a gift with thought. I know I personally appreciated gifts that could be used without…

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…
