Mother-daughter bonding and pampering at Glama Gal Tween Spa plus giveaway


There are many things that worry me about having a daughter. Some of those things include body image, confidence, bullying, and peer pressure.

Win a chance to see the Harlem Globetrotters in Toronto #HarlemGlobetrotters


One thing many of you may not know about me is that I am quite athletic. From being the only girl in an all-boys hardball league, to playing REP basketball, I was a very sporty kid! When I was in middle school, I started playing basketball and took a liking to it quickly! Basketball became [...]

The Hubster reviews the New Schick Hydro 5 Razor plus a chance for you to review it too


If you see my husband with his beard, you might confuse him with Seth Rogen. Or without the beard he often gets told he looks like Will Farrell.  I see the resemblance too. Sometimes. People often comment on how similar they look. I’ve known my husband for 12 years and it wasn’t until the fall [...]

The downside of toilet training in the winter (and a giveaway)

You can be anything with Barbie #playadvocate


Do you remember what you wanted to be when you grew up when you were a kid? What I had expected to become is far off from what I actually ended up doing. When I started University I planned on going to medical school to be a sports medicine specialist. I love sports and helping [...]

Holiday Gingerbread Village is a perfect family activity


I love everything about gingerbread houses. I love creating them, decorating them and of course eating them. I love the cookies, the icing and of course the candy! Even though I don’t celebrate Christmas, making gingerbread houses has been a yearly tradition since I was a kid. I love that you are able to be [...]

Feel good about drinking coffee with GoJava recycling program


 I love coffee. I love brewing it at home, going to big coffee shops and small coffee shops a like. Right after having Little Dude, I was pretty much fueled by coffee. It was a bit crazy but me and coffee have a full on love-affair. I’ve also owned almost every possible coffee maker on [...]
