    Chicken Soup for the Soul: Simply Happy #Giveaway

    It was Eleanor Roosevelt that said “Life is what you make it. Always has been, always will be.” and a quote that I use often when someone is complaining about something going on in their life. Now, I know there are things that happen which are completely out of our control; mostly this includes sickness and death. But what about the things we do have control over? Our bodies, our minds, our careers…and so much more that we don’t realize. When I hear someone complain because they don’t like their job or they think their butt is too big, I simply shake my head. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not…

    50 Pokemon Perfect for Halloween

    This post may contain affiliate links. The Pokemon Go craze is all over. Everywhere you look people are staring down at their phones as they walk down the street and taking snapshots of the different Pokemon they’re catching. We have not jumped on the Pokemon Go bandwagon – partly because I can’t figure out how to get the darn thing to work and partly because my data plan is just not big enough. The boys however are very much into Pokemon; they want to spend all their money on it, it’s the number one item on their wish lists, they binge-watch the shows on Netflix and very recently my son…

    My Little Black Flip Flops & Why I Love ‘Flip Flop Season’

    I may have been born and bred in Manitoba but that doesn’t mean it’s made the winter months any easier. I hate that it’s uncomfortably cold here and as much as I love my city I often wonder “Why do I live where the air hurts my face?”   The upcoming months and seasons are certainly giving me somethings to look forward to – flip flop season and… First there’s the wonderful sight of that first piece of grass when the snow starts to melt in the spring. The aroma of flowers starting to bloom. No more fighting with the kids to be bundled up tight from head to toe.…

    Keep Your Pants on & Feed a Family With Help From Mission Belt #HolidayGiftGuide

    I have a HUGE problem when it comes to buying my son pants…  he has no waist and any pants that I find that will fit his waist ends up being way too short and he looks like he is waiting for a flood and the ones that do fit him length wise are far too BIG around his waist that he looks like he’s swimming in them.  There really is no happy medium!  I end up having to look for the jeans that have the built in belt; you know the ones with the elastic that has to be tightened…  but not anymore.  Thanks to Mission Belt I can…

    Majestical Jewelry Review and #Giveaway

    Majestical – Having or displaying majesty or great dignity; grand; lofty. This definition matches a piece of jewelry that I received from a company with the exact same word I defined, as their title.  Have I confused you yet?  No…  Great!  Majestical Jewelry began with a small group of jewelry addicts from South Carolina.  The idea was to offer high quality fashion pieces at reasonable prices.   Just as the Beaded Ornament Earrings that I received, also matching the definition perfectly.  Although, not my usual style – but only because I tend to stick to the smaller, daintier pieces of jewelry, I have to admit that the more I look…
