P!NK Makes The Most Beautiful Cover Issue And I Have Something To Say About It

When you look at the most recent cover of People Magazine’s Most Beautiful issue I can’t help but notice that it is different then the issues that came before it. It’s evolved, the middle boasts an imperfect accomplished singer Pink along side her adorable children – vastly odd considering the previous ones were adorned by Photoshopped versions of thought of celebrities who stood alone and graced the covers like ornaments to the type set along side them. Pink is mom to her two kids Jameson Moon, 15 months, and Willow Sage, 6½,…

Simple Mother’s Day Planter DIY

Let’s face it, birthdays are for elaborate gifts and mother’s day is for the thoughtful and sometimes cheesy gifts our kids put a lot of time into and we cherish them forever. By the time you reach my age you run out of ideas to get your mom something truly special and you start to make up plans to give gifts from the grand children she will equally love – just because it’s from them. This year my sister and I made my mom the most adorable (and practical) planter…

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…

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.

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

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…

Summer Mom Essential- The Mom-o-kini

_____________________________________________________________________________________ _____________________________________________________________________________________ The words bangin’ bikini just don’t seem to apply much after you have children, unless you are Jessica Alba or Kim Kardashian of course. But keep in mind that there are other options to keep you covered and still make you look and feel sexy. One thing I have struggled personally with is ditching the bikini for a one-piece bathing suit, especially because I feel like that is the transition to being a ‘geezer’ on the beach – I just ain’t ready for that. Enter the monokini, or as I…

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 –…

Kids: Too Old to See Me Naked? Heck NO!

_____________________________________________________________________________________ _____________________________________________________________________________________     A couple of days ago I came across a post in a mommy group that has been on my mind ever since, it was a simple question about what age little boys should stop ‘seeing’ their mothers naked. Got me thinking, not because the question was relevant- because to me it really isn’t, but because I cannot believe that in this day and age we are actually harping on issues like this. Let me start off by saying that everyone has the right to their own…
