Girl Guides 2

What Moms & Dads are saying about Girl Guides Canada

As our daughters get back into their school year routines and look upon fond memories of summer camp or spending sunny days outdoors, we’re hoping to round out their extracurricular activities with positivity. We already know that Girl Guides of Canada is an amazing organization but it doesn’t hurt to hear it first from other parents.

For the second year in a row, Girl Guides of Canada asked parents about their daughters’ experiences. The amazing results validate everything we ever thought [...]

Swimming Pool

Toronto Swimming Lessons at Shendy’s Swim School

The thought of putting on a bathing suit in the middle of winter may seem like a dreadful thought to some of us. Personal grooming aside (hello spray tan!), while we may not be in the mood to get into the pool, we know our kids are always game. While swimming is a summer-time must, we’re hoping to make it a year long theme with some of the best Toronto swimming lessons in town!

Shendy’s Swim School offers a little escape [...]

Montreal Winter Festival Season 2014!

With the New Year upon us and celebrations wrapping up, we unfortunately don’t have much to look forward to aside from the bleak winter ahead. As temperatures dip even lower and we’re tempted to stay indoors more often, Montreal winter festival season is swinging into town, and surrounding cities giving us more than a few reasons to get outdoors!

A great (new) way to fundraise!

Let’s face it.  It’s hard out there for a parent.  We’re constantly getting roped into donating, or being asked to fundraise for something our kids are doing, by some charity, school, club, or organization that is asking us to either:

1)   Buy something we don’t need (hint:  how many chocolate covered almonds can we stand),

2)   Attend something we don’t want to attend, or

3)   Give money just because it’s been awhile since the last time we did

Well, a company here in Toronto [...]

What Lies Beneath Christmas Clothes – Change Lingerie

In the midst of shopping for gifts, cooking up a feast and decorating our homes, we need to find the time to fill our wardrobes with new looks for the season. While Christmas clothes may be on our shopping list, from a new little back dress to a comfy pair of flannel pajamas, we often times forget to stop and think about what lies beneath.

Is that basic nude bra really the way to ring in a New Year? Do our [...]


Ice Skating Vancouver – Gliding Guide

We’ve put together a guide of where to glide: ice skating Vancouver!
