Help Care for Your Family’s Sensitive Skin with New Tide Pods Free & Gentle-Giveaway

Skin sensitivity is something that I’ve known quite a bit about ever since I was a child. My younger sister suffered from severe eczema when she was little and used to wake up screaming in the night because she was itching so badly. When we grew up and had our own children, my boys dealt with some mild irritations and allergies of their own and my oldest niece suffered from the same severe eczema as my sister once had.

Needless to say, I’ve done my fair share of research into ways to minimize skin irritation. And if your family ever has negative skin reactions, Canadian dermatologist Dr. Sandy Skotnicki has some great tips to help avoid allergic reactions and other skin sensitivity issues!

Feeling #ThankFALL for Time with My Boys and the #TargetTrickorTWEET Twitter Party-Giveaway

With Thanksgiving recently having passed, I’ve been thinking a lot about how much I have to be thankful for in my life. I have a cozy house, a career I adore and, best of all, two healthy boys I love more than anything. My children are the joy of my life and spending time together with Zackary and Benjamin is something that I am grateful I am able to do so often.

To help me enjoy even more quality time with my boys, Target Canada recently gave me a gift card to do a little #ThankFALL shopping. And I knew exactly what I was going to get. Watching movies and playing video games together is an activity that my boys and I indulge in often. But we do so on the old tube TV that I bought when I first moved out on my own almost fifteen years ago. A new TV was the perfect way to treat the whole family to something we’d love and was sure to make our family time together even more enjoyable! [Read more...]

Baking Up Fun with New Robin Hood Quick Bread Mixes

If there’s one thing that the average parent could use more of, it’s time. Being busy is one of the hallmark traits of being a parent and I’m certainly no exception! As a result, I’ve learned numerous shortcuts so that I can accomplish my tasks even when I feel like I don’t have enough time to do so!

Of course, a shortcut is no good if it doesn’t still produce the results I want and that’s why I was so excited to try the new Robin Hood Quick Bread Mixes. The mixes promised homemade taste in a convenient mix that could go from box to oven in just five minutes and as an avid baker that rarely has enough time to bake, the concept was a dream come true to me.

Experience Chocolate Indulgence with Easy Double Chocolate Oreo Cookie Balls Recipe

I have always been borderline obsessed with Philadelphia Cream Cheese and use it in any recipe I can, every chance I get. Pasta, appetizers, side dishes, desserts…every recipe is a good one for Philly as far as I’m concerned! But now Kraft has done something I wouldn’t have believed was possible by making my beloved Philadelphia Cream Cheese even more delicious. That’s right, Philadelphia Chocolate Brick Cream Cheese is now available in stores!

It goes without saying that I had to use this delectable chocolate dream product in a recipe and the one I chose was already so decadent that I was a little worried I was going overboard by using the Philadelphia Chocolate Brick Cream Cheese. I shouldn’t have worried. My Double Chocolate Oreo Cookie Balls are sinfully rich, it’s true, but that’s what makes them so irresistible! [Read more...]

Save on Baby Essentials at Participating Retailers During the Baby Event #PGMom

One of the things I remember most about parenting when my boys were babies was how overwhelming it was trying to decide where to shop for baby gear. With strollers and furniture at one store, clothing at another and diapers at a third, I could potentially have spent half a day running from place to place stocking up on baby essentials! But I soon fell in love with those select few stores that offered a wide variety of products both for me and for my baby. One-stop shopping is always a win for me!

Nourish Your Skin Gently with the New Live Clean Fresh Face Collection-Giveaway

It’s no secret that I’m a huge fan of the naturally sourced skin, hair and body care products from Live Clean. And part of the reason I love the brand so much is that it’s always coming up with new innovations. The recently launched Live Clean Fresh Face collection is a perfect example and I received three of the new products to test out for myself recently.

Skincare is something I’ve struggled with for years. On the one hand, being in my thirties means that I need products that moisturize and protect my face. On the other hand, hormonal acne breakouts mean that I still need products that are gentle on my face and won’t clog pores. The new Live Clean Fresh Face products combine the best of both worlds with their hypoallergenic formula made with plant-based ingredients.
