Keeping track of my LIFE (aka, my phone) with Tile + #Giveaway!

Tile Square

As a mom, regardless of how hard I try to stay organized and on top of life things will inevitably slip my mind. Usually, it’s things like not realizing it’s hot lunch day until I’ve already packed lunch that morning. Or forgetting that I left a cheese string in my purse for a few days.

The fact is, as a society nowadays we are pretty bombarded with a million things to remember pretty regularly. I’m pretty surprised most days that I can make it out of the house every everyone in tow! Most recently though.. we had a bit of a situation that I desperately wish we had this neat little device around for…Introducing, the Tile. Continue reading →

Get ready to PARTY at the grand opening of Toys“R”Us and Babies“R”Us Langley! #Event

It doesn’t matter how old your kids are chances are they (and you!) are pretty familiar with the iconic Geoffrey The Giraffe and the Toys”R”Us logo! One of my favourite things to do when I was little was wander around the aisles and make a wish list for my birthday. A just recently celebrated her big 6 birthday and many of our friends knew we had to move out of our house for a bit while restorations were taking place so they were kind enough to give her many – many! Toys”R”Us gift cards for her to choose her own gifts.

NOTHING says fun quite like a trip to the toy store – am I right? July 8th, you can experience Toys”R”Us/Babies”R”Us in a fun and interactive way at the grand-opening celebration of their shiny brand new Willowbrook location in Langley BC!

Basic Invite; breathtaking personalized invitations for any occasion!

{Disclosure: This post is sponsored by Basic Invite, all last minute party planning panic and love of pretty invites is our own and not influenced by the sponsor.}

Once you have children, you suddenly have a ton of little milestones and events ahead of you. Some of these are celebrated on a smaller scale. First tooth, first word, first steps and more all warrant a baby book entry and a Facebook post (I love seeing the memories of these come up in my feed!), but other milestones call for a more formal announcement or a party. Baby showers, birth announcements and 1st birthdays, maybe a christening. And it doesn’t stop there, that’s just the first year!

If you had or helped plan a wedding, you’ve likely got some experience under your belt in dealing with invitations and the inevitable RSVPs and thank you cards. Picking out just the right theme or script, going through colour options, picking the right printer for the job and then rounding up all the addresses. Now add in a baby, subtract time and multiply the odds of forgetting to drop them at the printer. No thanks! Basic Invite is here to take care of all of the dirty work for you so you can spend more time relaxing and less time stressing.

What Is Your Netflix Binge Routine? #StreamTeam

Netflix Binge Routine StreamTeam

Just like every person is different, each family is different. Everyone’s routines are different and everyone’s preferences are different. That means battle for screen time can be quite a common problem, not just in my household but, in every household. As a mom I find I have to fight everyone in my home for some binge time and I bet I am not the only one. We spend all day working around/from our homes that having time to sit down while no one around is challenge enough. Then trying to convince everyone to agree on something can be a whole other battle.   Continue reading →

Tinyme delivers big fun with The Amazing Alphabet + #Giveaway!

If you’ve been following us for awhile, you probably know I have a bit of a weakness for personalized gift ideas. With two kids on the blog with fairly unique names, it can be a challenge to get anything with their names at a regular store. So when we come across fun personalized books and goodies we can’t help ourselves! Recently I discovered TinyMe, a Melbourne-based print company that has something hidden up their sleeves with books that surprised even me. Continue reading →
