This is not the post I ever would have imagined writing when 2015 started. I thought I would be writing about the mundane things I did this year and reflecting on what I can do better in 2016. No one could have predicted that my little, happy life would be shaken up like it was [...]

Winter activities to do with your family

Rub A535 (1)

The snow has finally arrived in Toronto! Princess Peach couldn’t control herself when she saw the snow. She wanted to lick it, touch it, throw it, roll in it and kick it. It was so sweet and innocent watching how excited she was to see the snow. Usually I grumble and complain when I see [...]

Me celebrating my first Chanukah is 1981

When I was a kid, I always looked forward to celebrating Chanukah. Every year we would gather at my Nana’s and she would have round laundry baskets filled with toys for me, my sister and my cousins. In the crazy days of Cabbage Patch dolls, my Nana even braved the crowds at Woolworths during a [...]

Spreading holiday cheer with Koodo and Choir! Choir! Choir! #ChooseHappy

#ChooseHappy

What I find most heartwarming during the holidays are of the stories of people spreading holiday cheer and being kind to one another. I love to hear all about the random acts of kindness people do to make others happy during this time of year. It’s easy to get caught up in the gift giving aspect of [...]

A holiday concert without holiday cheer

When I was younger I have fond memories of the holiday season at school being a very festive time. In kindergarten,  I remember having a pancake breakfast with Santa as well as frying latkes with parent volunteers. It’s where I, as an elementary student learned the words to Silent Night. We sang it one year [...]

Princess Peach reviews Disney Jr’s Rainbow Dazzle Minnie

Rainbow Dazzle Minnie

Disney has always been a part of my life including some of  my earliest memories! My mom use to sing my sister and a personalized version of the Mickey Mouse Club March Song as a bedtime song. Instead of singing “M-I-C-K-E-Y……” she changed it to “Now it’s time to say goodnight to the Kaiman family, [...]

Amazing deals at the Pop Toy and Gift Sale

2015 - Pop Toy & Gift Sale Poster

Holiday shopping is in full swing! The malls, and stores are packed with enthusiastic (or not) shoppers trying to cross off all the people on their shopping lists. I’m all about shopping early and getting a good deal. Often with the expense of buying for so many people, the price of the holiday season can [...]

Last year, Princess Peach and I were introduced to YouTube cooking sensation Rosanna Pansino’s show Nerdy Nummies. If you haven’t watched it yet she makes extraordinary treats that are inspired by comic books, anime, fantasy, sci-fi and video games. Princess Peach and I have watched so many of her episodes yet we haven’t actually recreating [...]
