How much time do you spend each day dealing with skin care? I had bad skin as a teenager and it continued into adulthood. It took me a while to understand how to take care of my skin. Now in my mid-40s I've noticed significant change in how my skin looks and feels. All that stuff you read in … [Read more...]
Coloud Headphones…Perfect for Little Ears
I've written before about my love of road trips. Packing our belongings in the van and setting out for hours on the road is an adventure that my family tackles enthusiastically. We've driven to Chicago, Montreal, Vermont, South Carolina, Florida, Pittsburgh and many points in between, and what gets … [Read more...]
Humidity and keeping the shine away. Ugh.
I truly understand when people talk about dry heat versus what we get here in Toronto. We've just had our first heat advisory of the year (yeah, finally). Remember? We go from cold to hot in a nano second. A couple weeks ago I was in Palm Springs, California. It was hot... like 100 degrees hot. But … [Read more...]

I'm ready to retire my … [Read more...]

It's come much later this year but I knew I had to bite the bullet and put some shorts on. But before I could, there was one … [Read more...]
Clorox Smart Tube® Technology…when Smarter Means Better
A few weeks ago I was approached about reviewing the new technology that Clorox is using in its bottles. I'm a fan of Clorox products; when I want shower tiles to sparkle, nothing compares to the Tilex Soap Scum Remover & Disinfectant. The product does what it sets out to do; removes … [Read more...]
Good to the last drop
I'm not talking coffee! How many of you have enough cleaning product left at the bottom of the bottle that it feels like a waste to dump out but there is not enough to bring up through the trigger? If you're like me, you splash a dash of water into the bottle so the trigger can pull the cleaner … [Read more...]
Now That’s Smart!
I suck at cleaning. While I appreciate a clean house, I have yet to master the art of maintaining one. That being said, when spring comes along and the sunlight begins to stream through the windows and the kids start playing outside again, I usually get hit with a (short-lived) desire to tackle … [Read more...]
