Planning ahead with Minted

I’m starting to think that I need a stronger word than “planner” to describe myself. I feel like I’m always worrying thinking about things so far in advance that it actually doesn’t make any sense but I can’t seem to stop myself. Case in point: it’s not even Thanksgiving yet and I already have my daughters’ outfits picked out for their annual Christmas pictures, which most likely won’t even be taken for another month. This of course leads to looking online for the perfect holiday photo cards to Read more […]

Learning to read the high-tech way with LeapReader

I will be the first to admit that while our house is full of books and bookworms who love them, I do not have a clue about how to teach my children to actually read on their own. Some of the things that we’re doing to encourage literacy: read to the girls daily, point out letters/words/numbers on signs or in flyers (this is actually how I discovered that Rowan can identify numbers, she started pointing them out on price signs one day), visit the library so they can pick out their own books, have Read more […]

Enjoy a tea break with Libre Tea (#giveaway)

My favourite part of fall is that it feels like ‘tea season’ to me. I worked with Libre Tea in 2011 and I had been enjoying their original tea glass until I accidentally sent it through the dishwasher and ruined the seal (here’s a tip: watch their how to use your Libre tea glass video). Luckily for me, Libre Tea has a new line of tea glasses out and I was sent a Starburst Tea Glass to try out! For the record, the tea above was an herbal loose-leaf that is supposed to be that colour. I have Read more […]

Get All-Day Organized with Thirty-One Gifts (#giveaway)

Now that my diaper bag days have come to an end, I have come to realize that there is no such thing as ONE perfect purse or bag for everything. There is the perfect clutch for a quick run to the grocery store where I’m just bringing keys and my wallet (check), a perfect cross-body bag for a morning at the museum that involves bringing some snacks and maybe a small camera (check), but what I was missing was a bag that was large enough to take to my classes at night but wasn’t so big that I over-pack Read more […]

Enter to win with #RESPwithRBC

I’m starting to believe it when I hear “cherish these years, they go by so fast”. It feels like just yesterday that I had a toddler and a newborn, and even though they’re only 3 and 5 now, our lives are becoming a whole new kind of busy and I think the years are really going to start flying now! I know that lots of kids hold signs for their ‘back to school’ pictures now (I haven’t been on the ball enough to do it myself but I love the idea) and one thing that is on many of those signs is what Read more […]
