Raising Independent Children – We Can All Learn From New Dad Russell Brand

_____________________________________________________________________________________ ____________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ There is no denying that I have sort of an intillectual love affair with Mr Russell Brand, when I hear him speak I am mesmerized by his genius and overall presence. However, recently he has been both criticized and praised for some words he said about how he will be raising his newest addition, and once again I have stars in my eyes and a heart that has turned to utter mush. During a recent interview on The Jonathan Ross Show, Russell has admitted that through his fiancee’s pregnancy…

Tori Spelling On 5th Child – Can You Afford Another?

_____________________________________________________________________________________ ____________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________   Tori Spelling’s recent announcement that she is pregnant for the 5th…count them…5th child has come as a shocker to most. Both Tori and Dean Mc Dermott have always stated that a lot of children were in their future. While she admits that it wasn’t planned, I have a feeling that in Hollywood most things are. I for one am not shocked at the fact that any celebrity has a lot of children, and why not right? I would have a bunch of children running around if I…

Inspired By Music – The Beat Bugs, A Netflix Original Series #StreamTeam

_____________________________________________________________________________________ ____________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ So many great memories happen when my family is together, little moments are those I cherish forever and usually are accompanied by a soundtrack of our lives. Music is everywhere, I can still remember what was playing when all those tiny momentous moments happened in my life, and I am thrilled that even through the chaos of motherhood I can still hold onto those moments with my kids and husband too. I have always been a huge Beatles fan, listening to them since before I was born because…

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…

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!

_____________________________________________________________________________________ _____________________________________________________________________________________ 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…

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 –…

Zucchini Chip Recipe

_____________________________________________________________________________________ _____________________________________________________________________________________ It’s no secret that when my husband is told to pick up an item at the grocery store he often overstocks on a particular fruit or vegetable, leaving me to come up with ideas on how to use and reuse the item for the next week and a half. Sometimes I am thankful for these purchases, especially when it forces me to attempt new recipes that both my children and I can indulge in. I have been making vegetable chips for quite some time now but I never…
