Give Disney•Pixar’s “Inside Out” this holiday season

Ever since we saw the advance screening of Disney•Pixar’s “Inside Out”, my daughters have been asking when they could have it to watch at home.

Slow down with bedtime stories from Candlewick Press (#giveaway)

Books are my go-to gift to buy and suggest. It’s no secret that we’re a family of bookworms and I was so happy when one of the first things that Ashlyn asked to put on her list to Santa was the new “The Princess in Black and the Perfect Princess Party” by Shannon and Dean Hale.

I am happy to partner with Candlewick Press again this year to bring you some great Read more […]

Decorating Our Christmas Tree

Christmas is easily my favourite holiday, and I love all of the special decorations that go along with it.

The answer to “Can I have a pet for Christmas?” is the Tekno Newborn

We have one (incredible) cat and no plans to get any other pets but my daughters are always asking for a fish, or another cat, or a dog. I’ve found a way for Santa to bring them what they want without actually committing to another living creature:Tekno NewbornTM Robotic Pets! I was sent a Tekno NewbornTM Robotic Puppy and Tekno NewbornTM Robotic Kitty from RP Toys. These micro pet robots can sit, Read more […]

Our Generation: dolls for today’s girls (#HGG #giveaway)

I am so happy that both of my daughters love playing with dolls as much as I did when I was a little girl, and I admit that I do live a little vicariously through all of the sweet dolls and incredible accessories that are available now. Some brands charge more for doll dresses and accessories than I pay for the child-sized equivalent! Our Generation has the same quality as the higher price point brands but at a fraction of the cost. For my Holiday Gift Guide, I was sent two very special items. Read more […]
