Super Moist and Delicious Gluten Free Chocolate Cake

Gluten-Free-Chocolate-Cake

I will be honest with you, when I first heard that this gluten free chocolate cake was super moist and delicious, I wasn’t sure what to think because it contained QUINOA. I’m honestly not a huge fan of quinoa, but you cannot taste it in this cake, not even a little bit! You know when you find a recipe that you love so much that it becomes your “go to” recipe? I have another chocolate cake recipe that was my “go to” recipe, but I have since then discovered this one and I’m in love! This gluten free chocolate cake … Continue reading

Powering Smiles This Holiday Season #PowerImagination

powering smiles

Children love to smile and parents love to see their children smile. Unfortunately, at this time of year, for some families, smiles are difficult to find. Every year, thousands of children and their families spend time in Canadian hospitals over the holidays. And while they may have difficulty finding their smiles, I do believe that there is always a smile hiding in there, and we have to find creative ways to bring that out during particularly difficult times. Powering smiles is something that Duracell is passionate about… especially this time of year! For children who are sick, we have to … Continue reading

Skincare Redefined with ageLOC ME by NuSkin

If you were to ask my Mom what I was like as a teenager or young adult with regards to my skincare, my guess would be that she would tell you that she considered me to be a product junkie. The honest truth is that while my routine has simplified significantly, I continue to LOVE testing out new skincare products. The geek in me was extremely thrilled when I was asked to test out the new ageLOC ME device from NuSkin! Seriously, the functions on this little device are impressive! ageLOC ME launched in North America on November 15, 2016. … Continue reading

Looking for a Unique Gift Idea for a Child This Holiday?

unique gift idea

I’ve had many conversations lately with parents who are struggling to figure out what to give their child this Christmas. What do you give a child who has everything? Many people are keeping their eyes peeled for a unique gift idea that will not fill the toy room or simply sit on a shelf unused. I don’t know about you, but I feel like compared to when I was a child, our children these days have too much. Not only do we not have enough space to store it all, but do they really NEED it all? We have had … Continue reading
