The holidays are coming. Can you feel it? The cold wind and the brisk air add to the feeling of change in the seasons. With all the preparations for Christmas on top of my regular life schedule, sometimes my hair isn’t looking as fabulous as I wish it could! Enter my hair fix:

Batiste

Batiste™ Dry Shampoo is one of my favourite quick-fixes for hair – just a shot or two and my hair looks and smells clean, is full of volume and texture – and it save me time! View Post

When I shared the contents of my makeup bag with you, I didn’t expect to have SO many questions about RapidLash – does it really work? does it irritate your eyes? how quickly do you see results?

What's in my makeup bag?

RapidLash is an eyelash enhancing serum that’s super easy to use and provides some gorgeous results! I used it once a day, as part of my nighttime routine after washing my face. You can also use it in the morning, just wait for it to dry before applying eye makeup!

I took “Before” pictures and discovered just how talented makeup bloggers are – do you know how hard it is to take a decent picture of your eye?! I used RapidLash for over 5 weeks before snapping the “After” picture, and I’m quite pleased with the results… View Post

Snap. Crackle. Pop.

Those three words evoke so many memories from childhood for me, the Rice Krispies jingle was always fun to sing and the three little elves were adorable – they were elves, right? My kids love the taste of Rice Krispies Original Cereal, but I have to admit that we use it more often to make Rice Krispies Marshmallow Squares than anything else.

I love picking up a new box of cereal from the store, and shaking it like a maraca! I have always used the original Rice Krispies Square recipe found on the box, but thankfully they have an online recipe as well! I tend to mix it up and add things to the squares from things I have at home – dried fruit, chocolate chips, cinnamon, white chocolate drizzle, or even M&Ms! View Post

Diaper changes are an ongoing challenge in my house – while my little one has been introduced to his potty and is definitely interested, he’s still seriously not ready for full-on potty training. So instead of ‘forcing’ it on him, I embrace it! He’s my last baby and I cherish every moment of his “baby-ness”, including diaper changes!

I recently discovered Huggies Little Movers Plus which are sold exclusively at Costco, which are perfect for my growing boy! They move with him, allowing him to be as free as possible, while providing a comfy and leak-free fit! Bonus: his favourite Disney characters are all over these soft diapers! View Post

Build-A-Bear Honey Girls Giveaway

Build-A-Bear has played a large role in my daughter’s life from the time she’s been a little baby girl. She received her first bear from her babysitter when she was less than 2 years old, a reindeer named ‘Moose‘, with Christmas lights on its’ antlers that flashed red and green. Since then, she’s amassed quite a collection of bears, some of her favourites include a Dashchund named ‘Hot Dog’ with roller skates, a multi-coloured bunny named ‘Skittles’, a dragon named ‘Toothless’,  and an awesome grey bear named ‘Rocker’, with flames on his feet and a snowboard in his hands (paws?).

So when Build-A-Bear and Mom It Forward asked me to share the new Honey Girls with my readers (that’s you fabulous folks!), I jumped at the chance and was super exited to show my daughter just how awesome these new bears are!

The Honey Girls are Teegan, Risa, and Viv, who met at school and formed their own band. Each one has her own strengths and talents that help the friends “be brighter together”. I adore the positive messages that the Honey Girls bring, especially to school-aged girls trying to maneuver friendships at this sometimes difficult age! The Honey Girls show that being yourself is super important. View Post
