Between visits with friends and trips to the store, beach and back again, hand sanitizer is a must for our family when traveling locally or out of town. It’s incredible how quickly germs spread and if my kids aren’t using a form of sanitizer or soap, they’re bound to all get sick in some way or another.  I can’t afford to get sick. As a yoga teacher, writer and business owner I truly can’t afford to get any sort of bug, which is why I carry these little bottles of PURELL around in my car, purse and glove box. The larger […] Continue reading →


Shopping tends to get a little more challenging when you have children. Instead of that deep yearning to check out every store, you find yourself drawn to the ones that have everything you need under one roof. The parking, the buckling and unbuckling of car seats, the traffic, kids asking if we’re almost done – it’s exhausting.  If you ask my husband what my favourite store is in the city, he will answer with “Marshalls” almost immediately. Whether I’m shopping for myself or my family, it’s my go-to store for brand-name fashions, gifts, kitchenware and toys at a deeply discounted price.  Over the weekend, […] Continue reading →


It’s always fun to see what kind of products celebrities fancy. I’m always curious ;). Last week (August 28th) during the “Back to School/Christmas in August” event hosted by Good Carma Studio, GG Benitez PR and On Air Host Sadie Murray  at The London Hotel in West Hollywood, celebs checked out the latest and greatest in holiday gift items and back to school products.  This event was sponsored by Mabel’s Labels, and Play-Doh, featuring an organic food spread from PALETA, with their Signature Potables & Juices, showcasing their kids lunch meals and family meal plans.     Just a few of the celebrities in […] Continue reading →


This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of dudley for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine. Have you checked off your back-to-school checklist? I still have a couple of items left on mine! I don't know why I leave everything to the last minute. Call it a back-to-school tradition for Canadian students  if you will. This year, I learned about a company that I was not familiar with. dudley® has expanded their current line of stylish school accessories with the introduction of its Load N lock Pencil Pod™ and The FULLY LOADED™ Lunch. As we all know, […] Continue reading →

Tea Collection *may* be one of my favourite clothing companies for kids. I’m obsessed with the story behind this collection of travel-inspired digs for kids. Each and every year they change up the designs, fabrics and overall collections as they find inspiration from countries around the world. This season’s Fall and Winter 2014 collection is inspired by Germany. “Fairytale forests and snow-covered slopes. Bratwurst and flake apfelstrudel.” Sadly, if you wanted to purchase from Tea, you’d have to have everything shipped to the USA as they were unable to ship to Canada – until now! Two days ago, Tea announced […] Continue reading →


After checking out  Sears‘ selection online and spotting a good selection of girls’ dresses on sale for $6.00 (what?!), I decided to take a trip to the store instead and see what other finds I’d come across. I was not disappointed. We came across racks of high quality $6.00 dresses, tees on sale 2 for $14.97 and baby chinos for my son. The Baby’s Room, and all fashions for babies and kids are all located in the same section, which made it easy for this mom of three to shop for all of her children without running around too […] Continue reading →
