Are you scrambling to get the last of your Christmas shopping done? I usually plan months in advance, but this year everything has been last minute. Last minute family emergencies, traveling and business has kept me from my usual organized holiday schedule. I braved the malls today and rumour has it tomorrow is going to be even crazier!   The Amazing Zhus Stunt Pets are new on the market and are designed to perform acrobatics and gravity defying stunts by plunging over 3 feet from the High Dive into a bucket, walking tightrope and run on circus balls. They’re crazy cool!

Suddenly, it seems that Christmas is next week already. Between family arriving in town, final shopping trips and grocery runs to do, and cookies to bake, I feel as though I have completely let the fun, crafting part of the holidays slip away. On Monday, a friend and I quickly searched Pinterest for some last-minute craft ideas and came across several that we have added to our list. These adorable Santa Handprint Keepsake Ornaments took a little bit longer than I would have liked, but they were definitely worth the effort. My only regret is that I didn’t make more […] Continue reading →

As a huge fan of Beyond Yoga’s luxurious collection of activewear, I was thrilled to hear that they partnered with A Pea in the Pod, for a special activewear collection for expecting moms. I know firsthand how hard it is to find high quality activewear designed for maternity. It doesn’t exist. At least it didn’t when I was expecting. Beyond Yoga’s apparel is amazing, incredibly soft, supportive and flattering. “Beyond the Bump,” the new ten-piece holiday collection, features Beyond Yoga’s signature fabrics that offer full support. Beyond Yoga’s revolutionary Spacedye, Bamboo Fleece and Supplex fabrics provide a luxurious feel and […] Continue reading →

When it comes to the spirit of giving, there are few companies who really and truly get it right. WestJet is one of those companies. For the past two years this Canadian airline has been granting wishes and giving Kleenex a ton of business. This year is no different. WestJet just released their annual Christmas video and I had to share with you all. This year they partnered with Live Different – a Canadian charity that works with volunteers on development projects abroad who has built 23 homes for families living in extreme poverty in the Puerto Plata community of Nuevo […] Continue reading →

It’s 8:30 in the morning and I am not starting up my car in this frigid weather to beat the lines of people at the mall. Nope, not me. Instead, I sifted through my email and did all of my Black Friday shopping from the comfort of my own home while sitting on the couch.  This year there are some wicked sales!

We’ve reached the beginning of holiday season which means that most of us have children who are making lists of things they want/don’t need. The radio and television are sounding off with a multitude of commercials pushing the latest and greatest gadgets, toys and other things that “you need right now” because hey, it’s the holidays after all! Yesterday, I received the best gift I could have ever received thanks to the Ontario Toyota Dealers Association and Lisa Richer, a friend of mine here in town. No, I didn’t win a vehicle, instead I was given the opportunity to do […] Continue reading →
