Sneak Peek At Our Halloween Costumes & Some Fun DIY Costume Ideas #StreamTeam

_____________________________________________________________________________________ ____________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ It’s no secret that I love Halloween – luckily my family does too because we start brainstorming as soon as one year is done and work our way to the next year using nothing but pure imagination. Inspired by themes and movies of course, we really try to include the whole family (sometimes the dog too) in our overall Halloween look for the season. This year, we will be dressing up as the crew from Alice In Wonderland and I am super-excited to give you a sneak peek…

An Online Affair

An Online Affair

_____________________________________________________________________________________ ____________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ Something about shopping that makes a woman feel better when she’s down, prettier when she needs it and happier when she just wants to forget about it. Something about the smell of new clothes, the crispness of new linens and the idea of having more… Something that makes me feel all tingly inside. What’s better? Online shopping! Endless hours browsing through catalogs for that perfect shirt or those coveted boots, that chaise for the family room or latest piece of tech….hours!! Fill the cart, budget the price and…

Pokemon Go Is Taking Over The World – Literally!

Pokemon Go Is Taking Over The World – Literally!

_____________________________________________________________________________________ _____________________________________________________________________________________ Admittedly, I love a unique baby name – in fact my two munchkins were inspired by the names of Greek Gods with an added twist. Yes, I too hopped on the baby bandwagon when searching high and low for a different name for our child…but POKEMON? Really? At first I couldn’t believe that people would actually consider tiny little creatures for names of their tiny little bundles but it is true – people desperate for unique names for their children all over the world are getting inspired by the…

Sweatin’ The Canadian Heat With Netflix #StreamTeam

Sweatin’ The Canadian Heat With Netflix #StreamTeam

_____________________________________________________________________________________ _____________________________________________________________________________________ Can we say hot? This summer has proven to be a scorcher! Since my kiddos and I are not fans of the heat unless lounging pool side, we have been watching a lot of the old tube lately. That means, mama gets to watch her Netflix on the good ol’ipad while the kids enjoy it on the big screen. Shhhh….they don’t know that I watch a completely different show/movie then they do. I simply put those earbuds in and clean the kitchen while catching up on my much…

Kicking Off Summer – From Thick To Thin!

Kicking Off Summer – From Thick To Thin!

_____________________________________________________________________________________ _____________________________________________________________________________________ I’ve been serious about getting fit for a while now, tried almost everything to maintain and tighten up floppy muscles but I never intended on getting excited about it. That is until I was introduced to the Fitbit Charge HR, the perfect companion for people like me. Slightly lazy, very competitive and sometimes excuse filled people like me. What’s worse about people like me, is people like me who vacation….can we say LAZIEST!?? So, here’s the challenge I was set up with from my friends at Telus: To…

Under Fire: Victoria Beckham Kisses 5yr Old On The LIPS!

Under Fire: Victoria Beckham Kisses 5yr Old On The LIPS!

_____________________________________________________________________________________ _____________________________________________________________________________________ When the internet takes something so innocent and makes it something totally not worth my time, I get angry. Take this adorable photo posted by Victoria Beckham of her daughter smooching her mama for example. WHAT IS WRONG WITH IT? Like most internet obsessed parents, Beckham shared her daughter’s 5th birthday on Instagram, alongside the caption: “Happy birthday baby girl. We all love you so much. Kisses from mummy.” In my family almost everyone kisses on the lips, without hesitation or the thought that perhaps our children will be targets…

Summer Is Here – Why Is Mommy Happy?

Summer Is Here – Why Is Mommy Happy?

_____________________________________________________________________________________ _____________________________________________________________________________________ While parents are cringing at the fact that they will have their children home for a whole 2 months without a break, I am relishing in the fact that I have my two little men home with me for the entire SUMMER! Don’t get me wrong, they are not perfect and most days start with loud obnoxious sounds, arguing and crack of dawn wake ups but I will take these annoyances any day as opposed to the frantic shuffle of a school morning. School mornings are filled with anxiety,…

Jana Kramer Feeds Her Child The Unthinkable!

Jana Kramer Feeds Her Child The Unthinkable!

_____________________________________________________________________________________ _____________________________________________________________________________________ – – Recently, the 32-year-old actress, Jana Kramer hit the supermarket to purchase some baby food for her adorable daughter, and to everyone on social media’s dismay – it was jarred organic food NOT homemade from scratch. Can you imagine the horror? As a mom of two children who were fed exclusively breast milk and homemade baby food I am surprised that this is such a big deal in the social realm. Yes, to me natural foods were the healthiest, simplest and most ideal option for our family –…

What Is Your Travel Personality? #KeurigEscapades Review & Giveaway!

_____________________________________________________________________________________ _____________________________________________________________________________________ Whenever I used to hear people talking about coffee, I would think they were nuts for relying on it let alone craving it – that was until I turned 30 and coffee changed my life. Well, maybe not my entire life, but it did let me become a more functional adult and finally realize what I was missing all these years. For me though, coffee isn’t just coffee. I don’t like the taste of traditional coffee blends, they just too boring for me, I tend to lean more…
