Are you ready? It’s the #DadsWhoPlayBarbie Challenge (BIG Contest news!)

Barbie has a long history in both my life and the lives of our daughters. I still remember being 9 years old and getting the Barbie Corvette for Christmas (the shiny version that every girl wanted that year) and I may or may not have been so excited to get that present because I may or may not have unwrapped the present and re-wrapped it before Christmas Day knowing I was getting it. Shhhh…Santa can hear everything. Now as a…

The products you need to see at the Best Buy SmartHome #BBYsmarthome

The National Home Show in Toronto started up this past Friday and I was invited to come down and take a tour of Best Buy SmartHome designed by the talented Christine Dovey (who also did their amazing SheShed). Her signature style was very apparent throughout the home and everything about it felt sleek, glamorous and yes, full of great technology that blended in seamlessly. By the time I was finished my tour with Christine who was showing me all the…

The National Home Show & Best Buy + a Giveaway!

Spring is coming. You know what that means? It means that you’re going to one day soon open the windows in your home to let in the fresh air and think you just saw a unicorn on a cloud. Then you’re going to turn around and look at your winterized house and think what’s going on in here? Why are there still Christmas ornaments on my mantle? Why does my living room look like it went into hibernation? And my…

A Review of the Hoover SteamScrub 2-in-1 Steam Mop & a Giveaway! #powerofsteam

Ask my husband the one chore that I avoid like the plague and he will say vacuuming. I *hate* vacuuming. I will sooner clean a bathroom than vacuum. I don’t know why, I’ve just never liked it. Dusting is a close second. I do however like doing laundry, but that’s because things smell nice after. Needless to say there’s a running joke about how I never clean our floors (my husband vacuum’s 99% of the time in this house). So…

A review of Leef iBridge & a Giveaway!

It would be lovely if every time Apple released an iPhone we could run out and buy one and have a million new Gigabyte’s to use to our heart’s content. Real life doesn’t always work that way. For all of last year my beloved iPhone 5S was really starting to show its age and there was never ever enough storage space. It was 16 GB and if you’re laughing it’s because you know that pain. The famous “You do not…

The unintentional fireplace mantel makeover

Ever start a project around your home that was supposed to take all of 5 mins? Ok maybe 15. Then you start doing it and it cascades into problem after problem and the next thing you know you’ve painted an entire bathroom because you decided to change a shelf and didn’t like how it looked? Something like that. Well that’s this story. It’s called the time we thought popping of a small grapevine wood motif off of our fireplace mantel…

How Mrs. Meyer’s will make you love cleaning and a Giveaway!

I hate cleaning. No really, I hate cleaning. I love having a clean home but the entire process of getting there is a whole other level of “My name is No.” Short of having Snow White and her crew of whimsical singing woodland creatures show up to teach me to make the whole process enjoyable, it’s not going to happen. You know what makes it better? Mrs. Meyer’s. Why? Because their products smell like you want to clean. When the…
