If it’s one thing my kids love it’s LEGO! We have several sets that have kept my son occupied on many an afternoon and my daughter has put together a few of her own as well. One thing I love about LEGO is that you don’t have to be a kid to enjoy it. It is kind of like colouring. It is fairly easy to do, can be relaxing and challenging at the same time and the end results don’t have to be perfect. You are only limited by your imagination! One of the coolest places we have been to recently is LEGOLAND Discovery Centre where you can quite literally let your imagination run wild! Continue Reading →
We have some exciting news to share and if you haven’t already guessed from my catchy title, Glama Gal Tween Spa is heading to the mountains! Blue Mountain Village to be exact. Opening in July, Glama Gal Boutique in the Village will be the latest addition to the Glama Gal family we have come to know and love. Blue Mountain, which is about 90 minutes north of Toronto near Georgian Bay, is known for many things, not the least of which is the trendy stores that carry unique wares, the cozy restaurants that entice you with smells of gourmet fare and tons of fun activities for all ages. Glama Gal Boutique in the Village will be the perfect new neighbor. Continue Reading →
I have always loved to read. Books, magazines, even textbooks for school. One of my weekly guilty pleasures used to be to purchase People magazine and read it cover to cover. Every week. At five dollars a pop the cost added up, but I would justify it by saying it’s the only magazine I read. Then, we bought a home and Martha Stewart Living made an appearance every once in awhile. Then came Better Homes and Gardens, House and Home and even Good Housekeeping ( my hubby still laughs at that one). And who could forget binging on Brides and Martha Steward Weddings…sigh. ♥ I think I still have that one somewhere. Once my first child was born I ordered my first subscription to Today’s Parent. After the second child it was to Weight Watchers. Continue Reading →
One thing we all take for granted is the ability to smile, but not everyone is that fortunate. Every three minutes, all across this globe, a child is born with cleft lip and/or cleft palate. The odds of dying before a child reaches the age of one is greatly increased if they have a cleft. Operation Smile is a wonderful international children’s medical charity that performs safe and effective cleft lip and cleft palate surgeries for families in low to middle income countries. Their services do not end there as Operation Smile continues to deliver postoperative therapy; quite literally saving these children one smile at a time. Continue Reading →
Something you will never hear me say is that I love to clean. It is just not my thing. Any of it. I have friends who find cleaning to be a stress reliever and others who find it therapeutic, but not me. If anything just the thought of cleaning makes me apprehensive. Well, actually that would be cooking dinner, but I digress. Back to cleaning, or house work, whichever you prefer to call it. I choose to call it a pain in the rear. Regardless, house work is on the menu now because it is Spring and what does one usually do in the Spring? (I’ll give you a hint, it’s not “run through fields of wild flowers with crazy abandon“). SPRING CLEANING! Yup, I am afraid it is that time. Continue Reading →
Just in time to celebrate Earth Day (April 22nd, 2015) Disneynature is releasing the latest in their line up of nature documentary films, Monkey Kingdom.
