How to Teach Children How to Wash Their Hands

live clean giveaway

My hands ALWAYS have to be clean. I cannot stand it if I have dirty hands. It is to the extreme folks! I am a bit of a germaphobe, but that is not what I am talking about. I am talking about the feeling of “not clean” hands. You know that feeling? Perhaps you don’t. Perhaps you weren’t blessed with first child syndrome like I am. Do you know what I’m talking about: first child syndrome? My Mom blames my persistent need to always have clean hands on being a first child. You see, as her first child, she constantly … Continue reading

Yengo Summer Shoes Giveaway

Yengo Summer Shoe Giveaway

Many women are known for their huge shoe collection. I’m not a typical woman in many ways and while I love shoes, the practical person in me has never gone down that path. However, I will tell you when I searched Yengo for a pair of summer shoes, there was great temptation that I didn’t know existed within me. Their wonderful selection of gorgeous, top quality summer shoes was incredible. I got sucked in for a LONG time trying to decide what pair I should choose! I finally landed on the Jambu Blossom Red Sandal Mary Jane. I really liked … Continue reading

Enjoy Your Coffee ONE Cup at a Time with a Keurig K200 {Giveaway} #KeurigColours

Keurig K200 Giveaway

Are you a coffee lover like I am? Me and coffee go WAY back! I still remember heading across the street from my high school to the local coffee shop and enjoying coffee triple-triple (yes, it was more like a dessert!) on my spares. It was a social thing at the time, more than it was the desire for caffeine (although that certainly helped). Over the years, while coffee certainly remains to be a social “thing” for me, it is more of a comfort and yes, I will admit…somewhat of a necessity. Because I work from home, and not in … Continue reading

A Game to Make Discipline FUN! #Giveaway

parenting game

When I was younger (much, much younger), I used to dream of becoming a parent one day. I dreamt of the typical white picket fence, two children (a boy and a girl –>I’m very fortunate that my dream came true) and that I would be a stay at home Mom. When I would dream, I had VERY rose coloured glasses on, because I was naive and really had NO CLUE just how challenging parenting could be at times. Please don’t get me wrong! I LOVE being a parent and it is truly the most rewarding ‘job’ on the planet BUT….with … Continue reading

Most of us love to cuddle and hold our babies when they are little, but there are many reasons why we also need a comfy and safe place to put them down. Some of us need to take care of other children. Some of us need to take care of our homes. Some of us need to take a shower. Some of us need to use the washroom. Some of us need work. And some of us just need a break. When any of these opportunities present themselves, and we have a little one with us, we need to put … Continue reading

What Would You Do with $100 this Spring? {Giveaway}

Mastercard Giveaway

What would you do with an extra $100 in your pocket this spring? Perhaps you would put it towards a BBQ, a patio set, a new bathing suit, grass seed, or something else? I know I would likely put it towards some nice patio furniture for my backyard. On the weekend, we were visiting various garden centres looking at lawnmowers when the beautiful outdoor furniture caught my eye! I have wanted to get a large umbrella or shelter for the backyard for many years now, ever since our canopy tent was destroyed in a bad rainstorm. I would love to … Continue reading
