I where my BOGS contest #IwheremyBOGS


The weather is changing quickly in Toronto now. The trees have changed colours and the ground is covered with fallen leaves. I always get sad this time of year because summer is now a distant memory and I never know what type of winter we are going to get. I try not to complain about [...]

Dear Moms and Dads in buy and sell groups, I’m a mom and I like nice things. I like my kids to have nice things. I’m sure you like your kids to have nice things too. I like to save money when it comes to my kids because most of the clothes I buy them, [...]

My kids are #AromaKidz and how yours can be too


 A few weeks ago, Princess Peach was off school for the first P.D. (Professional Development) Day of the school year.

Mom guilt. We all have it and it seems to start the second our babies are born. You know what it feels like. Second, third, and fourth guessing every decision you make as a parent.

Eleven years ago, after completing University, I decided to participate in a walk for Breast Cancer.

It’s hip to be cube with My Mini MixieQ’s

My Mini MixieQ's review

Sometimes when I look at Princess Peach, I see glimpses of myself as a child in her. For example, she can be quite stubborn at times, as was I. She loves performing and thinks she is the best and as a kid, I thought the same thing of myself. There were times that I thought [...]

Schick Intuition Razor Rate and Review

Shick Intuition Rate and Review

When you are a parent, everyone always talks about not being able to pee alone.  Since becoming a mom five years ago, if my kids are home, someone is always in the bathroom with me.

Why I show my kids my mastectomy scars


Dear Princess Peach and Little Dude, Today marks 1.5 years since my breast cancer diagnosis. It’s crazy to think how young you were when I was diagnosed- only 1.5 years old and 3.5 years old. Babies. You both were just babies. A lot has changed in 1.5 years. I have changed a lot in 1.5 [...]

A summer to remember

We ended our summer by spending the long weekend at Family Camp. It was the perfect way to end an incredible summer!

I had high hopes for summer 2016. Really high hopes. After not being able to enjoy last summer because I was finishing chemo and had my double mastectomy, my goal this summer was to make it amazing! And amazing it was! We swam in the lake, we laughed, we ate ice cream daily, we spent so [...]
