Are you heading out for the holidays? Several friends and family are hitting the road on Monday, while others are waiting until after Boxing Day to visit their relatives. Travel is at it’s peak during the holidays which is why so many are opting to hit the road as opposed to flying. Regardless of when/how you travel, there are several products that are guaranteed to make your trip more peaceful and stress-free.  I received the Cobra CPP7500C JumPack MB Power Charger Amp USB Bill recently and practically squealed when I opened the package. Why hasn’t anyone thought of this sooner? You […] Continue reading →

Cover photo is courtesy of Royal Caribbean.  Child Mode was recently invited by Royal Caribbean to check out their newest ship, Quantum of the Seas – the first “smartship” in cruising. Nadia was unable to attend, so I was happy to go in her place and experience my first ever cruise. This was the first time people from the press and bloggers were able to tour the completed ship. Sooooo… a lot of firsts. The ship left from New York City and began a quick […] 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 →

ROAR 2014

As I type this from my hotel room, 30 women from across North America are boarding planes to Costa Rica in order to attend the first inaugural ROAR Retreat, “a social media retreat for professional bloggers and women who also have a major wanderlust and aren’t afraid of adventure.” Last year during the ABC Expo in Las Vegas, an exposition that I have been attending for the past four years, I was walking the floors with my friend and colleague Andrea Fellman from Savvy Sassy Moms and threw this idea that had been on my mind for quite some time and […] Continue reading →
