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 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

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

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…

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…

Personalize Your Spring Wardrobe With Slogans!

Personalize Your Spring Wardrobe With Slogans!

Since we now know that Spring is around the corner  – thanks to Warton Willy’s groundhog prediction (6 weeks!!!) It’s time to start thinking of our closets post coat season. Seems that the fashion industry is super-excited about taking those bulky parkas off and showing off our personalities with slogan tee’s! Slogan tees are popping up everywhere – actually just about anything with a slogan, logo or musicial figure pretty much sums up Spring fashion trends this year. Look for anything that showcases your personality and duplicated it with fun,…

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…

Sorry Ladies, Leggings are NOT pants! Here’s Why…

Sorry Ladies, Leggings are NOT pants! Here’s Why…

With the rise of comfortable clothing and leisure wear happening on runways, in clothing stores and at the mall it is no wonder people are starting to give in and get lazy with fashion, per say. I know you, the mom struggling to keep it all together and throwing on just about anything that is clean just to get out the door to bring your kids to school, or the student who just pulled an all righter at school just to make that deadline, or even the stay at home…

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…

Holiday Boredom Busting With Netflix!

Holiday Boredom Busting With Netflix!

Just a few more days until your children will be home for the Holidays and that means the constant nagging, arguing and ‘mommy I’m bored’ sentences will be uttered daily. Perhaps not for the first few days as Christmas will keep them entertained however, for sure right after the novelty of toys and sugar rushes come to an end….that means almost an entire week of this. Any mama (or daddy) would be at their wits end without a solution. That’s where I come in…well Netflix actually. Netflix has made vacation…
