Giveaway! B Factory eco-friendly beeswax wraps

Giveaway! B Factory eco-friendly beeswax wraps

There’s been a bit of a buzz about this new eco-friendly way to wrap things up. Something that’s like cling wrap, but not the least bit wasteful. And to be honest, I thought it was a little too good to be true. But when Margaux, owner of Montreal’s B Factory sent me some of her […]

BROADWAY GIVEAWAY, BABY! Cinderella is coming to Place des Arts

BROADWAY GIVEAWAY, BABY! Cinderella is coming to Place des Arts

How many different versions of Cinderella can you think of? Books, movies, TV, plays, musicals… This story crosses cultures and has many variations. Having a daughter who was, at one time, pretty obsessed with all things princess, I’ve seen my share of Cinderella movies. What comes to mind: The Disney Classic, released in 1950 Ella […]

Giveaway! Cirque du Soleil’s Luzia ($250 value)

When I was in my 20s  (as if I can just casually write that!) I lived with a group of amazing girls who loved me so much, that for my birthday they took me to see Cirque du Soleil in Ottawa. Wikipedia leads me to believe it was Saltimbanco, but I don’t remember details (it […]

Free meditation download of “Kindness” and Kira Willey’s New Release for the New Year

Mindful Moments for Kids by Kira Willey, is music to this children’s yoga teacher (and mama’s) ears! The 30-track spoken word CD is not meant to be listened to all in one shot. Adults don’t have the attention span for that! The nature of the mid is to continue to wander, which is why so […]

Raffi Giveaway! + Review of Owl Singalong and Nursery Rhyme Parade!

Within the same week, the week before we’d head out on the road for a little holiday, I received two CDs for review that I was sure would bring me for a trip down memory lane. Very different times in my life, however. Born in the ’80s, Raffi was where it was at. I don’t […]

AppleCheeks Learning Pants review and giveaway!

When I give away or sell my last cloth diaper, I’ll be a happy mama. And it seems we could be close. The jury’s out, on whether Bug will ever be a big brother, but what I do know is he’s transitioning out of diapers and into underwear. Even though I’ve already seen one kid […]

Giveaway: Disney on Ice’s Treasure Trove at the Bell Centre

My parents took us to Disney World when I was 10 and I loved it. But my teenaged self swore that if I ever had kids, they wouldn’t watch Disney movies and they certainly wouldn’t go to Disney World. I also knew my daughter would never own a Barbie. Among other things I thought before […]

Giveaway! Amazing DEET-free, organic bug repellant by Dr. Fedorenko

We recently took a family trip to the beach in Maine. We packed hats, a parasol, UV suits and Green Beaver sunscreen. We had planned on being on the beach for most of the trip, but I was also hoping to beat the heat and find somewhere to go hiking. With the huge Lyme disease […]
