The Milk Dish – Fulcrum Gallery

For the last couple months, I have really been working on decorating the walls of my home in the most pleasing way possible. For me, this includes beautiful artwork. I have always leaned toward vintage-style pieces as they remind me of a simpler time filled with such innocence and beauty. I have a decent collection of medieval-themed art as well as my favourite cat art pieces. I was thrilled to work with Fulcrum Gallery again as I am still madly in love {Read More}

Back to School with Giant Tiger

I have a confession to make. I have never actually visited a Giant Tiger store in my life. There, I said it. Up until the last couple years, I even lived near a Giant Tiger store, but it was all the way across town and I never got the chance to have a look around. So you can probably imagine my shock when I got my back-to-school shopping down through Giant Tiger and was blown away by the prices and {Read More}

Blue Orange Games – Fast Flip and Dr. Eureka

One thing that I can’t stress enough is the important of family time. It is when we can disconnect from our devices and just engage with each other. I was crazy about board games as a child and I have been grateful to be able to share this love with my own children. Two of our most recent game favourites are Dr. Eureka and Fast Flip from Blue Orange Games. They are both geared for children 6+ and are for two {Read More}

Going to the Birds – Small Parrot Bird Cage

One thing I love best about where I live is the birds. I never really stopped to listen to birds, but I have found lately that I can lay in bed for hours just listening to their songs from my window. While I have never had the pleasure of owning a bird myself, I know many who couldn’t imagine their life without a bird companion. For those who open their homes to these majestically fantastic creatures, they know how important the {Read More}

Some days are better than others, but progress is being made. Check out these potty training necessities that every parent should have to make potty training {Read More}

Huggies Hug Plan Giveaway #NoBabyUnhugged

I can’t think of anything more precious than the moment I got to hold each of my children after birth. Waiting nine months to finally hold them in my arms always seemed like such a long wait. However, it was worth every moment. Huggies Canada recognizes how precious a hug can be for every baby, which is why they have created the very first Hug Plan.

Toddler Favourites on Netflix #StreamTeam

When it comes to Netflix, one of my youngest son’s current favourites is Super Why. He constantly asks to watch, “why.” It has actually been a favourite of all my children, but my youngest seems to enjoy it the most. I am impressed how he is encouraged to sound out letters and he actually does just that while watching. I was also pleased to see this program comes from a Canadian studio! Another Canadian made program is Caillou. Again, all my {Read More}
