Our Family Adventure with Mickey Matson…and Netflix ;)

If I had to state my family’s favourite genre of family movie, I think I would have to say adventure. We are HUGE fans of National Treasure, Night at the Museum and Journey to the Center of the Earth. I suspect that if there were 12 sequels to each we would have watched them all, some […]

Romantic Getaway in a Ford Focus

I was recently offered the opportunity to test-drive a Ford Focus Titanium for a special #FordRoadTrip to St- Sauveur. I decided to use it as a chance to have a little romantic retreat with my hubby. Do I need to tell you that with 4 kids we don’t get too much alone time? We left on Tuesday at […]

Allergy Relief I Never Expected to Work

This past spring I was invited to an event where actress Mahée Paiement would be speaking about HydraSense, a product I am very familiar with and have used with my own family. When my kids were younger, each had their own bottle. When I became aware of the ‘mouche bébé’ (nasal aspirator) – they each […]

The Not-So-Hidden Danger of e-Readers & Other Mobile Devices: The Charger.

iPods, e-readers, cell phones & tablets, cameras, laptops and more. We live among an array of portable e-devices and each one of them comes with its very own charger.

Fundraising for Foodies: Table of Hope #Eat2Feed

Last week I had the pleasure of attending the Table of Hope gala fundraiser benefitting Share the Warmth. It was a Foodie’s Paradise. Held at Windsor Station, restaurateurs & caterers from all over the city set up booths & fed guests samplings (although not always ‘sample-size’) of their tastiest treats.

Blended: The Movie – A Good Laugh :)

I was fortunate to attend the Premiere of Blended with Adam Sandler & Drew Barrymore on Wednesday Night and I have to tell you that I loved it! Although the storyline was light and predictable, the jokes kept the entire theatre laughing out loud the whole way through. You absolutely do not have to be part […]

My First LUFA FARMS Basket :)

Like so many of you, I have seen the name LUFA FARMS popping up now & again and had some vague idea that it was an organic rooftop farm, but wasn’t entirely sure of how it works. Last week (as I procrastinated getting my act together for my accountant), I decided that it was time […]
