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

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….

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

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…

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.

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

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

Why This Tory Burch Ad Was Removed From Social Media

It is apparent that in the world of fashion, many fashion brands have touched uponĀ 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 CaucasianĀ 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

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.Ā  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…

Are You a Netflix Cheat? New Study Confirms You are Not Alone

Are You a Netflix Cheat? New Study Confirms You are Not Alone

Late nights without my husband at home (he works nights) has prompted me to cheat on him, not by choice but because I just can’t stop! Initially, when we got Netflix we would watch shows together, snuggle and wait for one another until the next episode or season would come out…lately, I just don’t have the will power to wait! I don’t mean to cheat, it simply just happens – usually followed by guilt, sore eyes and a whole lot of wanting more! At first it started off with the…

For mature audiences, and some younger ones too- Life 101 with Netflix!

For mature audiences, and some younger ones too- Life 101 with Netflix!

My husband and I like to think that we are creating a very open family when it comes to social issues in our home. We talk freely, discuss and make sure to keep the lines of communication open with our children – this sometimes comes at a cost. A lot of parents and family around us seem to think that sometimes a little less information is good for our children – but we beg to differ. So far, with honesty all we have seen is gratitude and tiny humans doing…

5 Tween Tech Travel Must Haves

5 Tween Tech Travel Must Haves

Every year just after the holidays we take off to somewhere warm down South, and this year was no different. After all of the Christmas chaos we jetted off to Curacao on New Years day – talk about a kick off to the new year right? White sand, crystal blue waters and sun-shiny smiles all around! That’s what I call a perfect getaway. When my husband and I decided to start a family we made a point that we wanted to travel with the children at least once a year…
