Hair is cuter with a bow from Eaby Chic (#giveaway)

Believe me when I say that the hair struggle is real in this house. I'm a big fan of sending the girls to school with their hair tied back, but there are always little bits that don't want to cooperate, and between clips sliding around and headbands pinching behind ears, the end of day hair is usually a wreck. I came across Eaby Chic thanks to my friend Amy in 613 and was so happy when Jennifer sent me a variety of her sweet bows to try out! For my daughters, we received a KARMA ELLA in Read more [...]

Disney’s Moana is sailing into homes now (#giveaway)

Finally, that day has arrived because Disney’s "Moana" is now available on Blu-ray + DVD + Digital HD! As I said in my earlier review, we loved “Moana” because she is a brave girl who goes on a dangerous journey to help her people. This is not a princess who is waiting around for her prince to arrive! I fully believe that Lin-Manuel Read more [...]

March Break in Ottawa 2017

It's that time again in Ottawa - March Break is March 13-17, 2017 (that's next week)! Here are some suggestions for things to do in Ottawa (or wherever you live)! I will always suggest the library first! The Ottawa Public Library has free activities for kids of all ages at all of their branches, and if you have a library card for your child, you can register them online. If you don't, head over to your nearest branch and get one! When you're done, you can also pick up some new books and Read more [...]

Disney on Ice presents Passport to Adventure is not to be missed!

We just got home from seeing Disney On Ice presents Passport to Adventure at the Canadian Tire Centre in Ottawa, and it got 6 thumbs up! We have seen a number of different Disney on Ice shows in the past, but this one was by far our favourite. There was not a moment of boredom with favourites from The Lion King, Peter Pan (with a bonus Mary Poppins song), The Little Mermaid and the big Frozen finale. From the absolute delight of my daughters when they realized that finally, Daisy Duck was Read more [...]
